Life: The Shoeing You Deserve has some fantastic tracks on it but needs to be listened to VERY LOUD INDEED.

there's a "saturday nite live 2" that's fantastic, too. it's a little heavier on authentic period disco that SNL 1. look out for the ann margaret track they use, "everybody needs somebody sometimes".

let me know if you want a copy of "the u-star daze", gaz.

idjut boys are like the progenitors of the revival style that chicken lips is currently getting props for. (i know, it's weird to say that someone's a progenitor of a revival style)

i got so much idjut boys love to give.

everyone who is feeling the idjuts go to slsk and get dj harvey's "sarcastic disco" mix. he did it as a promo for an LA fashion label. it's great. while you're there pick up the "maddog chronicles" mix he did for freshjive to promote their tony alva documentary. it's more rock than disco but it hits that 70s stoner boogie vibe perfectly.

i wish maurice fulton was still rocking this style instead of noo-vaw no-wave nonsense. mutsumi = yoko.

(ok just kidding i love late lennon and i'm sympathetic but MU sort of blows compared to boof! or ladyvipb or even stress...)

Fuck this is so great I am itching to give a copy to an ex-girlfriend of mine even though I am seriously pissed off with her at the moment and shouldn't be giving her presents. She'd love it. Actually, I'd probably give it to her and then find out that she's already got it. Worse still, that her current bf introduced her to it. Still. What a great record.

giving your ex a cd only to discover new boyfriend has aleady given it to her - classic or dud?

stirmonster (stirmonster), Friday, 20 May 2005 16:52 (9 years ago) Permalink

Well, there is form here. A couple of months ago I was all excited at hearing Amerie's '1 Thing' and texted her to ask if she'd heard it as she'd love it and... yes she had. From him, yes. About three weeks beforehand. Pretty much dud, I'd say.

Funnily enough, these days I find making tapes/CDs for girls I fancy corny and too embarrassing to do anymore. I can only do it for current and ex-girlfriends.

Also, this mix is just so up her street.

Alba (Alba), Friday, 20 May 2005 17:00 (9 years ago) Permalink

I should explain that I'm listening to this for the first time right now and I'm only up to 'Underwater' now. Although Colin has sent me an mp3 of it since, it's only now that I'm really reminded of the feeling of hearing it at Optimo and asking you what it was, Twitch.

this Press Play mix is so not what i was expecting. it's really great, but i was expecting a synthy disco house mix. it's got all these covers of old tracks. the Word Up cover is especially great.

mullygrubber, did i give you Plantlife cd? their cd has really been growing on me. my wife was listening to and loving it, but she thought it was from the 70s until the monie love sample came in mid album.

i am too woozy from allergy meds right now to be fully articulate but it probably had something to do with the usual "expected something other than what it was and tuned out" nonsense i am constantly guilty of. (what i expected i don't remember. something faze actionish, no doubt.)

what's up with PHANTOM SLASHER and MAJOR SWELLINGS?

i just picked up phantom slasher's "PUDDLE & SPOUT" lp for $5 and i really like it! is this an idjut boys side project? is it dj harvey? somebody else entirely?

how about major swellings? is that any good? is major swellings related to lindstrom / prins thomas?

vahid (vahid), Wednesday, 7 September 2005 05:17 (9 years ago) Permalink

ok forget the last question, discogs.com just answered this for me - but still, is it any good?

side note: i had a hell of a weekend! i picked up

phantom slasher - puddle & spout
faze action - plans & designs
akwaaba - too shiny
jhelisa - galactica rush
chateau flight - puzzle
i:cube - 3
all of the kelley polar EPs
dj food - jazz brakes 5

it is all bongos and jazz beards over here.

The Major Swellings disc is excellent, it's mostly disco/electro-italo re-edits, but if you didn't know the source material, it would fit right in the with the full-on dancefloor tracks that Lindstrom/Prins-Thomas are doing now.

"night dubbin" is decent, maybe not quite as crazy as i'd hoped

moonship journey to baja, Thursday, 28 May 2009 02:56 (5 years ago) Permalink

it's like this: the tracks on the unmixed disc are *fantastic* but for some reason on the mixed disc the energy level seems lower than on the unmixed discs. not sure why that is ... a similar thing seemed to happen on "fistful of ferrets". somehow the idjuts managed to make DC sound tamer and milder than the earlier "death before distemper" volumes. and on "press play" also. are they mellowing with age?

moonship journey to baja, Thursday, 28 May 2009 06:11 (5 years ago) Permalink

moonship journey to baja, Thursday, 28 May 2009 18:49 (5 years ago) Permalink

Should be on my doorstep today... honestly though I don't know that on any of these 3-disc BBE things that I've ever preferred the mix disc to the unmixed ones, they always seem staged like a relatively perfunctory "bonus" rather than the focus of the package. I suspect that the "mixed by Idjut boys" thing might have been more of an afterthought marketing ploy than the original concept for the release (could be wrong)

Bangelo, Thursday, 28 May 2009 18:55 (5 years ago) Permalink

a highly subjective "best of" mix just for the hell of it ... pardon the trainwreck or two and the excessive use of reverb and delay towards the end. my excuse is that it's only fitting for the subject matter.

phantom slasher - endup
idjut boys - gentle approach
phantom slasher - poxymoron
idjut boys & quakerman - dum dum de dum
phantom slasher - lasagna for 10
phantom slasher - i got my love
major swellings - assquake
thick as thieves - tiny bubbles
major swellings - spit and dip
phantom slasher - oochie coochie
idjut boys & quakerman - corrective surgery
idjut boys - sweet gerry dynamite

the last mix is just embarrassing ... i got distracted and suddenly realized the record had run out ... so i threw on the next one but forgot that i still had the reverb turned all the way up and the pitch turned down from "oochie coochie"

Backwards Is The Best Way Forward. Baby
Satchell On My Door Step - Roxy Music "The Main Thing"
Your Wistful Sigh
Love Ranger

Le Cock Noir
Blow Me Slow - Hot RS "Slow Blow"
Noid Life - Spandau Ballet "Lifeline"

they must mean "first LP of original exclusive productions"

because by my count they've released

noid long player
life: the shoeing you deserve
puddle & spout
gruble
key to the tripod
desire lines

and

more or less / the u-star daze

which admittedly is an early "greatest hits" comp and mix

“What we’ve tried to do is make an LP, four tracks a side on vinyl. You stick it on your stereo, have a cup of coffee and read the paper. When it’s finished you stick the other side on. So we’ve made an LP in the traditional way.”

the late great, Friday, 16 March 2012 16:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

my favorites is actually "life: the shoeing you deserve"

"more or less" is a 2cd comp w/ a mixed 2nd disc, that mixed 2nd disc was re-released in the US as "the u-star daze"

i would go with any of those, and then move on to puddle & spout, gruble, etc etc which tbf are basically i guess just elaborate re-edit comps

Since those early albums seem impossible to find at a reasonable price, I've got stuck into Press Play and Night Dubbin. Really enjoying the track selection on Press Play, but I feel like as a mix it kinda crashes with the cover of Word Up and doesn't really get itself back on track, like the section from there to the end should have been at the start to warm up instead. Night Dubbin is great though, I love the sense of dark queasiness hanging over it, and both mixes are so impressive with the way they eschew traditional beat-matching yet putting together transitions that seem to flow naturally.
