Merry Chris-mix - buy none get one free

As is traditional this time of year I've trawled the interweb for the very best Christmas mix known to man, woman or donkey and here's the first offering from DJ Friction. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm now that's soulful.

Of course wall to wall Christmas hits might well even get on the tits of Santa himself so here's a blinking awesome hip hop mash up guaranteed to get even the lamest party started courtesy of DJ Vadim (big up DJ Wrecka aka my old mucka Darren R for the tip off too).

A very Merry Christmas and a Hip Hop Happy New Year to y'all! x

Pete, drink and be merry

Gutted to be missing this but tomorrow night sees Pete Williams play Bearwood Corks Club, just a mere stagger away from my old home on Poplar Road. As regular readers will know I really, really rate Pete as an artist, from his days with the original line up of Dexys Midnight Runners and then the reborn Dexys through to his incredible solo material. He's a bloody nice bloke too which goes a long way in my book. Anyway, cop a listen below and if you're anywhere near the 'wood this Friday pop along. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Car Seat Headrest - Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales

Back in the day when you had to watch adverts on the telly t'is the season for those suitably gruesome drink driving ads. Now that most of us either fast forward through the ads though I'm guessing 'them' in charge are relying on us having enough common sense not to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after 18 pints of Lambrusco...even if using ruddy 'smart' phones seems to be responsible for far more carnage these days. Anyway all this is an extremely tenuous link to the current single from Car Seat Headrest, who sound a little like a sort of American slacker Divine Comedy. Ace.

PS: I'm not entirely sure if this track is called Drunk Drivers or Killer Whales (or both) but as there aren't many ads on telly warning about the dangers of Killer Whales getting behind the wheel of an automobile we'll just go with the former for now.
