Well said.

For my own slightly less concise, more tangential and entirely superfluous tribute:

Excellent! Though I disagree with your post about the LCD Soundsystem.

However, I won't hold this against you, Mr.Munn. We're a broad church, and all that. I've been meaning to add your blog to the sidebar on the right, and I've finally gotten around to it.

Chee-azz!

Re: LCD Soundsystem - some stuff I just don't get, dunno why - it's not a dig at people who do like their music.
I mean, as a massive fan of the entire output of the Rising High label, I'm hardly in a position to make value judgements about sonic endeavours that don't grip my eras.

Thanks for the link btw - and check back for more inane chatter about the history of Acid House and random potshots at contemporary bands.

sorry, i meant 'ears' not eras

No worries. I think I should like Radiohead (angular, difficult, not that dissimilar to stuff I do like, e.g. Tortoise, Trans Am etc.) but it just doesn't do it for me...

I used to have a few vinyl LPs by his KarlHeinzBeanzness, and would have had an all-nighter in memoriam, but I realised my ex-wife stole them all in my acrimonious divorce. And she hated his music. Bitch.

That's a damn shame you won't get to have your all-nighter. Nothing like a bit of KHS to get the party started in our house. And then a bit of Iannis Xenakis when you want the guests to leave...
