Yes it's a shameless self plug.

Here's my latest Mix CD!

We've been terrible at writing of late. Mr Faley has been away on a very long tour, and I'm not too sure where the others are. I have been stuck in a small dark room for nearly a year.

Sound of 2009

We've gotta say, that when it comes to cherry picking the rising talents, the BBC have it pretty sewn up. Each and every year they release a list of acts for the following year.
Last year they came up trumps predicting the rise of the likes of Duffy, Adele, MGMT, Ting Tings and FOALS.
This year there's a whole new batch. 3 of which, I'm very pleased to say, have graced the stage at the Filthy Few Live! event which happens for free each month in East London.
So I'm going to be biased and start with the three who have graced our stage.
I've been plugging her on the podcast for a good while now. She played live for us back in May 2007...I was in a bit of panic because she hadn't soundchecked. About an hour and a bit before her scheduled stage time she turned up but minus her guitarist. Cue more panic...but, being the consumate professional, she said she'd do it acapella. And here she is. Live at Filthy Few.

Next up FrankMusik.

I've been a fan of his for a while after DJ-ing with him at the Proud Galleries. He was playing live and I hung around to watch him. His album's produced by Stuart Price of Madonna fame, but fondly known as the man who gave us one of the best Fabric Live CD's in the form of Jacques Lu Cont. We had him on our live stage on Halloween this year and he rocked it. The man's an awesome beat boxer too.

and here's the beat boxing....

Finally Master Shortie.
Seen as a bit of a cross between Dizzee Rascal and Calvin Harris. Still very young in the game. He's been working alot with Filthy Dukes on their live act. Unashamed pop music.

This post could go on forever so I won't keep you, instead I'll give you the names of the rest and you can google and youtube them for yourselves. My favourite final 3 suggestions are as follows.

Empire of the Sun - I blogged them right here on this blog the other week...scroll down and you'll find the video for their debut singer. If you like this then check out PNAU. I DJ-ed with them at Cargo for the London Airwaves Festival and have been hooked ever since. One of PNAU is in Empire of the Sun.

Little Boots - Another act I've blogged about and had on the Filthy Few podcast. Amazing

Passion Pit - Guess what?!?! Yes, I've put them on the podcast AND the blog. Think there's a pattern emerging here. Download the podcast and read the blog ;)

And the others in no particular order are :

The Big Pink

La Roux

Kid Cudi

Dan Black

The Temper Trap

VV Brown

Lady GaGa

White Lies

& Mumford & Sons

Blood on the dancefloor

Fake Blood's been kicking around for a little while now.

At first there was a whole load of commotion (not to be confused with Kylie's Locomotion) about who this guy was. Loads of people thought it was an already famous-ish producer who was simply having a laugh putting out toooons under another pseudo-name.

Turns out it's a guy called Sang Foley from North London.

His new tune Mars is pretty f*cking special. It's got a sound that can only be described as BIG!

Coming out on Herve's Cheap Thrills label....show him some support.

Fake Blood - Mars

Ok...so I got greedy...


I did say I'd write two posts but then I found myself remembering comedy YouTube videos.

You know you love sitting around with some drinks and friends and having a YouTube off don't you.

This video made me laugh....only watched it again recently. The song is awesome and one friday I had an urge to watch it and realised how much Mr Mark Ronson had changed.

Someone definitely had a bit of styling before 'Versions', Amy Winehouse and all the riches and glory he now has.

Check out the hair cut!!

Glastonbury memories

I really should have written a review of Glastonbury because personally I thought it was pretty amazing.

I've done a verbal review of it on my podcast which you can get by going HERE

One of the best parts was Trash City and Shangri-La. 

Imagine the most random place on the planet and then times it by 1000.

One of the best memories was watching some kind of drag queen (though looking more like a feline than anything) dancing around to Kate Bush Wuthering Heights.

I'd forgotten how good this song was and it led me onto YouTube to watch the video a couple of times until my craving for it had subsided. It also led me onto this...by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain....a very dandy cover. Enjoy!

More blogs to come I promise.

I am leaving now for America. I am going to set the others free from the wrath of the Cruise-meister.

Barringtone Guest Mix

So where have we been?

The others have recently converted to Scientology and are living in Tom Cruise's basement. Tom's allegedly making them produce electronic music for his latest film using just a triangle, a kazoo and a saw.

I've been living deep within a whale after being swallowed up following a fishing trip with the Uku Uku men of Malaysia. It was an interesting experience.

Now I'm out I promise to post more and bring you some top tunage.

So I'll do two posts today before I wing away for the weekend.

First up...

A lovely man called Barry used to be in an act called CLOR.

Now he's ascended to the dizzy heights of a Lordship....re-siding, legend has it at the core of British society...in the House of Lords.

Shameless plugs and mighty thugs

So...it's been a good while...and we my friends are becoming SLACK so I'm hoping to kick start a new wave of written epics for your enjoyment.

A band I've been liking recently...is Bumblebeez. Now although this isn't my favourite song...it is my favourite video.

I'm also semi-in-love with the girl from the band. Hot HOT red head. Amazing.

I am getting very excited about the new Filthy Dukes album.

They've got Plastic Little, Sam Eastgate (Late of the Pier) and more all featuring.

I've heard a pre-mastered...pre-finished copy and I'm very excited.

This is them DJ-ing at DQ in Sheffield.

And finally - I produce a podcast featuring music you may not have heard before...The tracklisting is below....if you like the look of it or are curious about the meaning of life...then I think you should download it.


It's a shameless plug admittedly but
