So, it’s been a while …
What with one thing and another – ok, two of the things are the kids who’ve needed entertaining for the last 6 weeks, and another is my propensity to spend the last 3 Thursdays stuck in a field with no signal, meaning not much time for digging and less for tunes.
As an extra special reward for this, and for the first time in over 160 Three on a Thursday’s, I’m going to double up.
Yes, you heard me.
6 tunes below the line. Hope you’ve got your listening ears on.
I don’t usually review albums, but after listening to The Menagerie’s latest slice of hip-hop goodness, Odd Beast I felt the urge …
Oops – one day late.
Still it’s to your benefit, as I was out watching two of Bristol’s finests funk DJs at The Lanes last night – The Allergies and Boca 45 (guys, it was lovely to see you lot again)
Still, belated tunes eh?
Manic dash on this week, so the pre-ToT drivel is mercifully short.
We’ve got a fest of hip-hop, with some UK Royalty on mellow hip-hop duty, some slightly more underground beats and a classic from the vaults.
Ok, Thursday- here we go
I was seriously considering doing a ‘Room 101’ style Three on Thursday this time round, highlighting 3 tracks I just can’t abide and ceremonially locking them away for eternity.
Thing is, that would have entailed trawling through a sack of utter dross from the Tweetie Song to anything Abba have ever written, rather than actually listening to tunes, y’know, I might actually like…
So, lets stick to the script, eh, after all, it’s lasted for the first 100 of these …
Did you miss me?
(in fact don’t answer that, you might hurt my feelings)
Apologies for the lack of a couple of weeks off – I was up in t’Midlands and we’ve only just got electricity up there, let alone the internet ..
Nevermind, I’m back in the land of civilisation now, so you lot get tunes.
Ahoy guys – it’s that time of the week again!
Three of the choicest cuts to hit my ears this week, passed onto yours in time for the weekend.
As ever if you like the kind of thing I drop, come and see my play live, and buy me a pint to say thanks … your next chance is this Saturday night at Basement 45 with the guys from Whomp for their now legendary annual Christmas Bad Jumper Party
Is that’s time of the week again, where I give you three of my favourite tunes that have blessed my ears for the first time this week.
Are you ready?
Then let us begin.
Three quarters of the way to the Century … can’t quite believe it. By my count that’s 225 hand picked, lovingly curated tunes I’ve educated you lot with – the least you can do is come to my next gig at Number 51, Stokes Croft tomorrow <- shameless plug or what
Ahem, sorry about that. Music you say?
The collabo list on Mr Boss’s The Landing II reads like a who’s who of UK Hip-hop right now, with everyone from the young thrusters Fliptrix and Ramson Badbonez from High Focus to the (relatively) old heads of the scene, Stig of the Dump and Dr Syntax, so this promises much … does it deliver?
