gotta say i'm not really feeling this desire record. the production is actually kinda lame, and the vocalist sorta gets in the way of any potentially great moments

JESUS CHRIST THE DESIRE CD HAS NINE SONGS ON THE BACK AND EIGHT TRACKS
Going by Itunes and the lengths of songs on their Myspace player, I think "Oxygene" just doesn't appear on the album despite being listed. I'll have to listen to the demo of the song on Myspace once I've heard the album and see if I heard it somewhere...
Ah well. At least it's not FSOL's goddamn Dead Cities.

are you sure you havent picked up the 8 track sampler simonetti was punting from his blog? Different versions of the tracks. ive probably listened to the desire record more than anything else this year. Not really straying far from the chromatics/glass candy sound but the quality of the actual songs and vocals really blasts in into space
― straightola, Sunday, 19 July 2009 09:49 (twelve years ago) link
"Oxygene" isn't listed on the tracklisting on any of the download versions of the album eg http://www.junodownload.com/ppps/products/1442354-02.htm
Haven't bought this yet but I really enjoy the rest of the Italians Do It Better stuff.

they closed with a weird hip-hoppy version of Iko Iko using the Isaac Hayes loop from that Geto Boys song

from the IDIB blog:
Wednesday, August 05, 2009Glass Candy "Geto Boys" 12" OUT NOWAfter months of mastering issues (the bass was so heavyit was making the needle jump), legal issues, and remixingissues. We are excited to say that the Glass Candy "Geto Boys"12" is finally in stock. And even better...it's a double A side.They've Been destroying this song on tour all year. Samplesthe hip hop classic "Mind Playing Tricks On Me" from Houstonlegends, GETO BOYS (who sampled Isaac Hayes). The flip sideof the record features the Deep Gems burner "AnimalImagination". If that wasn't enough, the record contains 12"instrumental versions and vocal edits of both songs. <<<

Wait I thought that's been released for like a year???!?!?! Or is this just a remaster? Wha...?

It was out on a CD but now it's a 12".

the bass on IKO IKO is much heavier than on GETO BOYZ imho.

huh! never heard the CD version. that show was the first time I've seen em live. probably gonna see em again on Saturday at Brooklyn Bowl

oooops it's next Saturday. durr
we did end up bowling tho!
― dmr, Sunday, 6 September 2009 14:47 (twelve years ago) link
what you score? I bowled for the first time in like 8 years last week for a bachelor party at chelsea piers...scored 123 on my game! The fun thing though with the new hi-tech systems that record the speed is seeing how fast you can bowl. I broke 20 mph.

I am in New York next week and am looking forward to that Brooklyn Bowl show.
― CosMc (Raw Patrick), Sunday, 6 September 2009 16:57 (twelve years ago) link
wish I could sell you my tix, I'll be out of town! I don't think I can though, it's will call and you have to show ID/credit card. argh. should be a good show. they were fun at LPR.
dan I think I got a 102 on my first game, worse on my second. Brooklyn Bowl is pretty cool, it's such a big space. huge dance floor / stage area adjacent to the lanes (and people actually danced), big bar area, there's a restaurant in there ...
long wait for a lane but probably wouldn't be too bad on a weeknight.

Dear Mike Simonetti,

^^^^ what the fuck. glad i stayed home sick. i heard he was only booked for an hour??
― not a playa but i ilx a lot (deej), Saturday, 16 January 2010 19:27 (twelve years ago) link
Ha. I think I misread one of his twitters -- I thought he wrote that Chicago let him down, but he actually wrote "Chicago has YET to let me down." Maybe it was a good night after all but I stayed away. Last time I saw him in Chi was at the Empty Bottle and no one was there. Still if he only played a one hour set it would not have been worth sitting through the 4 (!) other DJs booked to play last night.

i will say its probably unlikely that a DJ who expects to tour again in the future is gonna decide to trash major metropolises on twitter

Lots of good goodies news: http://vivaitalians.blogspot.com/2010/01/feeling-without-touching.htmlFarah 12" (Gay Boy) & album!! New Chromatics album! And a new label sampler a la After Dark.Can't wait to hear the Farah stuff.

These will definitely go to the top of my 2010 release watch list. I'd really like the Chromatics album to be a killer.

re new farah
i know it's going for that hyper-bitchy divine style "castro boy" type of disco fag humour, but it lacks nuance and just bludgeons an average joke into the ground. and that drugged out "creepy" deadpan vocal delivery is so played out by now
― teresa banks (r1o natsume), Friday, 19 March 2010 16:53 (twelve years ago) link
hasn't 'sugar & whitebread' been around for 5 years or so?

i love this about farah, but agree the track is a little too weird for it's own good. does anyone outside of idib really do this much tho?

Yep; it's on the IKO ep.
― Shannon Whirry and the Bad Brains, Friday, 19 March 2010 18:04 (twelve years ago) link
i guess i should post this here also? i dunno if it's me moved on or if quality control is way down, but i think this song/video and the new farah are both really bad comparatively :-/
― jaxon, Thursday, 25 March 2010 05:42 (twelve years ago) link
nu farah sounded terrible from the sample i heard.
― *makeitplop* (haitch), Thursday, 25 March 2010 10:13 (twelve years ago) link
haven't heard the farah (never was huge on her tbw) but this glass candy song sounds like anything off beatbox so i think it's you jaxxy.

It's from the same era as B/E/A/T/B/O/X. It's on the singles comp. thing (Deep Gems).
― Shannon Whirry and the Bad Brains, Thursday, 25 March 2010 15:22 (twelve years ago) link
oh then that's not new at all and probably why it sounds so familiar.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v202/trblmn/SOLIDGOLD-1.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v202/trblmn/SOLIDGOLD2-1-1.jpgOUT NOW:Solid Gold is a collection of some early IDIB 12"s, most of which are out of print. Tracks were carefullyselected and programmed by our own Johnny Jewel.This entire compilation is the brainchild of Johnny,and he put a lot of time into the tracklisting. We hope you enjoy it. Its perfect driving music. Thisis a cd only release, and is for sale in our store (link is over there on the right column). We lowered allof our prices as well on everything. We are tryingto accommodate the overseas people who get screwedover with the high shipping rates, which seem to keep going up and up and up... This is a MAILORDER/GIG only release! enjoy!

I got it in the mail yesterday. It's pretty great! I hadn't heard 50% of it before - the T&K stuff has sort of a simple house sound with some guitar riffs on top of it. The Solange track is really haunting classic-sounding italo number. The Tiedye song at the end is... somethin' else; there are some *really* earnest, passionate vocals on top reminiscent of the DJ Kaos "Love the Night Away" track from last year, with a familiar Lissvik sheen on top. It went from amusing to engrossing on my first listen.
They could very easily do a couple more volumes of these with some of the really rare Chromatics tracks (that amazing Springsteen cover that was on one of the ultra-rare 12"s) and some other stuff, which would be awesome, but I'm pretty eager to hear the "Into the Black" disc (the looooong-awaited follow up to "After Dark") too!!!
I would give them open access to my bank account to just auto-deduct money and send me new stuff as often as possible; I love this label.

Finally after months and month of preparation, we areable to announce the first four releases on our newsister label PERSEO. This label will focus mainly on editsand things of that nature. The label was born whenMike heard the infamous Bruce Springsteen edit byMartin Vogel almost two years ago. It prompted himto try to figure out a way to release it, and thus Perseowas born. SInce then it has become a way to showcasesome of Mike and Johnny's favorite edits out there, aswell as a way to release some of their own work. LikeItalians, expect the quality to be top notch and therecords to be limited editions, usually around 400 copiesper release. The first three releases are:
--M VOGEL "Tough" 12" (aka: The Boss- the one that started it all)--BOTTIN "Eagle/Stork" 12" (Steve Miller/Level 42)--MIKE SIMONETTI "That Look" 12" (3 obscure house tracks)--PERSEO "Edits Volume One" cd (this collects the three recordsabove, plus a bonus track from Mike not on the vinyl)

finally got ahold of that 'solid gold' comp, and it's excellent- as to be expected i guess, since i was familiar with most of the tracks. made me realize i kinda slept on that t&k stuff, though i'm still on the fence about solange.
and now it's time to seek out this perseo thing, i heard samples of those house edits simonetti is releasing and they are damn encouraging. excited for most of the stuff on this new label actually
― a lagoon par la mer (psychgawsple), Tuesday, 3 August 2010 04:27 (eleven years ago) link
MikeSimonetti: FACT KIX TRACK LISTING (top of my head)- 1. Amon Duul, 2. obscure synth record lol, 3. HAUNTED HOUSE, FOXES, ITALO 45 rpm played on 33, ODYSSEY song about cocaine, latin 33rpm slowed all the way down to -8, everybody gotta learn somtime, then like 3 or 4 house tracks from '90 and some dumb end track for shits and gigs. there you have it. the mix... i think?
― jaxon, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 18:35 (eleven years ago) link
