Timbaland and The Neptunes feature pretty big on ILM, but what do people think of Just Blaze (and indeed, Kanye West)?

i love the way the Blueprint sort of steps back, for the most part, from the Tim aesthetic, into this histrionic, even classicist, symphonic soul vibe. it should sound backward looking but it seemed to suit what Jay is saying ("i'm looking past you"). I only really know of Just Blaze because of The Blueprint, and also the last Beanie Sigel album (those last 3 tracks would have been a credit to the Blueprint, they just as good, no?)

so, forgive my ignorance, but what else have JB and KW done, and how long have they been doing stuff in this style (have they always been like this, or is this like a new direction). Why do they get less props than Tim/Neptunes (i imagine it is because Tim/Neptunes are more forward looking and 'sonically inventive'?)

Album charts: Dido (imminently to be done on Naked Maja) still at #1, Strokes in at #2 same as last time. Two new entries for Rod the Sod; Songs By Old People Vol 2 in at #4, early Rod/Faces Changing Faces 2CD comp in at #13. Other greatest hits compilations entering: Texas (5), Erasure (15), Suede (31). Kish Kash enters at #17. Jamie Cullum, who'll probably end up outselling every one of these albums, in at #22. Lower down: Myleene Klass (32), Joe Strummer (50) and Amy Winehouse (60).

Slimzee, Dizzee Rascal and Rolldeep Cru: wrestling UKG from the grubby Cristal staind mitts of So Solid et al, these and a slew of underground pirate operating dudes from all over London are making music ostensibly designed to dance to but more suited to mugging old ladies in Holloway. Abrasive, aggresive, alkaline and lots of other adjectives starting with 'A' (most importantly, ACE) the beats are more akin to neptunes productions like 'Grindin'; really minimal with blooping bass hiccups and industrial synthetic bells. Dizzee Rascal is 19 and arguably one of the finest mc's in london right now (rolldeep also have a 14 year old mc) his seminal release to date is 'I Love You' which you may've heard already... basically, sit by your radio tonight and flick through the original pirate material until you find the rolldeep show, it will blow your head off.

I think it's a precarious situtaion. A lot of his GOP support is of the reluctant 'tow the party line' variety (unlike, say Obama, whose fans seem determined to make this election the second coming of Beatlemania). So, on the one hand, he'd be wise to choose someone who represents a more traditionally conservative ideology. Huckabee or Romney would be the obvious (ie WRONG) choices in this regard.

However, he stands to lose the moderates and independents he's been courting since day one if he brings in some hardliner. I think he's acutrely aware of all this.

If he wants my vote he'll have to choose smart, sexy libertarian Sarah Palin.

They are a mixed bag live. Opening for Sonic Youth recently and for Bobby Conn last year (?) they were great, powerful noisy stuff. The two other times I saw them they seemed a little directionless and were boring. And besides, the one time they had to play after the Animal Collective at a gallery in Detroit and they couldn't come anywhere near the genius of those guys that night. Seen them in various solo set-ups and it was mixed as well.

It's one of my favourite albums of the year, and I think Make You Feel That Way is an extraordinarily beautiful track. And fuck trying to guess what will stand the test of time, I just like it because it sounds good to me now, and I don't think I can guess what will last anyway. Remember John Peel telling Tony Blackburn in the late '60s that Peel's favourites like Iron Butterfly and It's A Beautiful Day would be universally revered in the future while Blackburn's favourites like Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson would be contemptuously forgotten.

And fuck all this macho nonsense about not wanting to admit to liking it because it isn't all hard and aggressive. I like much softer stuff than this! And Nabisco is OTM (thanks to Graham's 'while you were writing...' feature).

All other donut shops are toast once Tim Horton's creeps in. They're on every corner here - WORSE THAN STARBUCKS - sometimes they put one on both sides of the street so that you don't have to go to the 'trouble' of turning across the traffic.
About that fast food smell - McDonald's is the worst for that. It's the beef flavouring that they put into the oil (to make the taste consistent with when the fries were done in beef tallow) - blearghhh. During my fast food tour of duty I was a cook for Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips. Now the smell of fried fish is *so* lovely let me tell you...

Subway's veggie and cheese subs rock - especially now that they've added all those fancy ass new breads. Dairy Queen, ironically, makes the best cheeseburgers. A&W is a close second. Harvey's Hamburgers aren't - but hey, if you like soy. Licks is good but weird and expensive.

I also like that Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich. Speaking of spicy chicken - has anyone else ever had a Nando's chicken sandwich? Oh so yummy! Unfortunately, all known outlets here appear to have closed.

Actually quantizing something happens whenever a signal goes from analog to d - to digitize it means you have to turn it into a number, or a quantity, thus the term.

Cher's voice was recorded and then adjusted with tuning plugins for Pro Tools - Autotune, which you can hear on a ton of studio records nowadays (Linkin Park anyone?) forces notes to adhere to a pitch-perfect steady tone, which kind of makes a voice sound vocoderish, and other plugins which allow for pitch to be transposed an octave or two without losing too much of its timbre.

Matt Maxwell is right about the method except I'm not so sure about the 'on-the-fly' part.

I hate Pro Tools plugins.

The Ramones comparison is apt, to be sure, but I feel that all the Bon-era stuff and the first couple of Brian Johnson albums belong in every home. Also, the bottle opener key chain that came with the box-set has proven incredibly useful over the years.

I didn't like the hype around the Strokes for a couple of months and I let that colour my perception of the band. I was wrong - started liking them a bit after "Hard To Explain" came out, bought the album rather nervously and immediately enjoyed it. I'm sorry to break up the ILM consensus, not that there was one.

The reason FT's talking about them now is that all the hype and anti- hype about the Strokes was saying basically the same things and that wasn't what I was hearing on the record, so I thought I might as well write about that.

I'm always glad to see the return of Nick's "internet hardman" persona, too.

OTM. I listened without prejudice and I came away praying for the day when Basement Jaxx are producing popular teen idols and Richard X's girl group are up and running to happen really bloody soon.

Indeed, the main problem for me here is confusing lighthearted with lightweight. The airy way the song carries itself around screams of desperate grabs at SAW-type instant memorableness and the groove is...ordinary. You could tell me Hilary Duff sang this, or maybe her sister, for her latest movie, and I'd probably believe you for a sec - and no, that's not a compliment. 5/10

from wikipedia, a description of both the founder and the current owner of the observer -- kind of an interesting commentary on how the composition of the city's elite has changed when you think of it:

The publisher and original owner, Arthur Carter has had other publishing interests in the past including the Litchfield County Times. At one time, he was a part-owner in The East Hampton Star. Carter received an A.B. in French literature from Brown University and an M.B.A. in Finance from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. He spent twenty-five years in investment banking until 1981, when he founded the Litchfield County Times in New Milford, Connecticut. He owned it for twenty years until selling to Journal Register Company, later also selling his 50-percent interest in The East Hampton Star in 2003. He has been an adjunct professor of philosophy and journalism at New York University and is currently a trustee. He is also a sculptor. Despite his "registered opportunist" political beliefs, from 1985 to 1995 he owned The Nation.

The director, Stephen K. Bannon, a conservative auteur in the mold of Michael Moore right down to the New Balance sneakers, attended the screening and told CNN that he hopes to expand to more screens, but that decision would have to be made by theaters and the distributor after returns from the current release are counted.
that is a very florid, back-handed way of saying "a fat nerd"

I am surprised that calzino's serious threads seem to get even more hostility and mockery than the myriad of banal and useless threads he insisted on previously. i guess he's the boy who cried wolf. too many people were sick of his other threads so now it's too late for him to engage the majority here in serious conversation. he ruined his chances by repeatedly abusing several posters un-necessarily. i think he lacks respect by not reading other threads - for if he did he would realise that there is a lot of political debate going on a lot of the time and that the same posters he pillories at every opportunity seem to get on fine with the vast majority of others here and display their intelligence without problems.

"Tim McGraw" by Taylor Swift vs. "Let's Make Love and Listen Death From Above" by CSS a/k/a Cansei de Ser Sexy; I pick the latter (which more or more seems like it could wind up in my year-end singles top ten even though I was very iffy about their album in a review I wrote for Spin, and which also has nothing to do with c&w music), but feel free to try to convince me otherwise. The Taylor Swift song is admittedly pretty good (also better than anything Tim's done this year, just like the CSS song is better than anything DFA have done, ever. I didn't notice the middle part where they try to *sound* like DFA til I watched the highly adorable video on youtube, during which part they also dress up like DFA elephants.)

So... Amnesiac

Something else.. "Amnesiac" arrived on Tuesday and Timothy McVeigh's televised execution is scheduled for Monday. Normally I'd say the further Radiohead stray from obvious politics, the better- but in the light of this event, it certainly makes the themes of the album seem that much more poignant. From the desperation and cruelty of Knives Out ("Look into my eyes/ I'm not coming back" and "Cut him up") to the political challenges of "You and whose army?" and the aformentioned Life in a Glasshouse's call for privacy and pacifism ("but someone's listening", "We're hungry for lynching"), Radiohead seem to have something significant to say. Or am I reading too much into this? Could I be doing the same thing using choice quotes from any number of albums?

The movie, directed by Jessy Terrero from a screenplay by Bo Zenga and Chuck Wilson, depicts the raucous cross-country journey of flight No. 069 on NWA Airlines. The company was founded by Nashawn (Kevin Hart), an unemployed, self-described entrepreneur and his cousin Muggsy (Method Man) with $100 million that Nashawn won in a lawsuit against a carrier that lost his beloved pooch. NWA bills itself as the first full-service airline catering to the "urban traveler."

frat rap

its definitely an internet myopia thing on your part HOOS. Like the circles we travel (Pitchfork, Quitus, Dusted, Brooklyn Vegan, blogs, ILX) treat dubstep as this post-Burial thing of murky sounds and moody textures (King Midas Sound, 2562, James Blake, Mount Kimbie, Shakleton, Zomby). Meanwhile--mostly thanks to Caspa & Rusko--there's been a whole other scene taking over bro-dudes who are into things like Coachella and Deadmu5 (Skrillex, Bassnectar, Trillbass, Boregore).

Problem is, rock critics only cover the former, and I think I like the brostep latter BETTER.

First mention for Littlejohn and only second mention for BoJo. First from Robin a few weeks earlier of course.

Roger Scruton appears in a rather unlikely place.

Taking Sides: Steps or S Club 7


SClub7 have a far more euphonious name, obviously, but (like Rage Against the Machine before them, or the Newfoundland sludge-metal outfit Long Winter's Stare) the name Steps deals with the issues: in this case, that all these fit young things can also dance (as in, turn turn step turn turn step turn). Whenever some halfwit fraud like Roger Scruton or Nick Hornby pronounces on, ooh, Madonna, and announces that actually, they can't sing, it's all production, you want so confront them with this fact: they CAN dance. That's real: so why does it get vanished from the evaluation? Why doesn't it count? It's like a clearly non-negligeable physical achievement, yet someone of no consequence to anyone. Why? How?

Can't imagine why Waterman's moaning: as always happens, the war against this year's manufactured piffle-pop alchemises last year's anathema into unimpeachable pop classicism. That Channel 5 thing wasn't exactly Pilgeresque in its hard-questions journalism, but it did remind you how cretinously reactionary MM/NME reader-think could be, in ref. SAW, and also how great and much-missed eg Mel and Kim were/are.

The Jacob Rees-Mogg one is notable because he didn't even become an MP until nine years later.

weird echo of the falsies (Tom D.), Monday, 10 July 2017 11:34 (two weeks ago) Permalink

even by 2001 he had already done a lot of work to establish himself as a notable tosspot, though:

At the 1997 general election, Rees-Mogg was the Conservative candidate for the traditional Labour seat of Central Fife and attracted ridicule, after canvassing a largely working-class neighbourhood with his former nanny;[8] on election night he came third, gaining 9% of the votes cast,[13] slightly fewer than half of the votes won by the previous Conservative candidate in 1992. However, rumours that he had toured the constituency in a Bentley were described as "scurrilous" − he insisted it had been a Mercedes.[14]

In 1999, when it was being rumoured that his "anachronistically posh" Received Pronunciation accent was working against his chances of being selected for a safe Conservative seat, Rees-Mogg was defended by letter writers to The Daily Telegraph, one of whom claimed that "an overt form of intimidation exists, directed against anyone who dares to eschew the current, Americanised, mode of behaviour, speech and dress".[15] Rees-Mogg himself stated (in The Sunday Times, 23 May 1999) that "it is rather pathetic to fuss about accents too much", though he then went on to say that "John Prescott's accent certainly stereotypes him as an oaf".[16] He later said "I gradually realised that whatever I happened to be speaking about, the number of voters in my favour dropped as soon as I opened my mouth."[7]

Well, well, well Dr C, you and others seem taken aback by our defense of Killing Joke but believe me we are not, as some have suggested, a bunch of neandethal zealots. How many gigs did you go to last year ? I could name you hundreds of bands and artists whose vinyls, tapes & CDs I cherish but there's something special about Killing Joke IMHO.

Since the mighty Joke have not toured the UK for 6 years, maybe we're all suffering from PMT (pre manic tension) ! Inukko admitted only hearing post 1994 work - there is a treasure trove of stuff to indulge yourself in - go ahead, enjoy.

And as for the objection to the robust defence, abuse !?! Those living in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. We're not the elitest ones. Honest.
