love this interview with mitch easter about early rem sessions # the ever excellent jhs show on the origins of boss # great john earls interview with david gedge about seamonsters over on superdeluxeedition ... # g skinflowers - complex messiah # g skinflowers - song in pocket # 'i still dream of orgonon, i wake up crying' # where are all the bob ross paintings? # i recall lightning struck itself. rich and i saw television around the time of this video, and they were amazing, just as they are here # g skinflowers - polyhedral medication # follow your money # some dancing about just-mentioned architecture, but everybody needs text to scroll on their phones # great album. constantly a favourite # vic chesnutt - flirted with you all my life # been thinking a lot about moira lambert / faith over reason the last few days, since mentioning her over on instagram. when i met kat she had a cassette of faith over reason songs - a copy of a copy of a copy of a needledrop as we never called them back then. if you think about how quietly this starts and the layers of hiss and surf ass noise it had to emerge from as we listened to it ... as we stumbled upon the approach we took for how i learned to be free in an unfree world i specifically wanted it to reference that feeling. emerging from the static. # hammer house of horror # this is a mindblowingly good track on an awesome album you might not have heard - tribe of dan - in the blood # jimmy somerville. great song this, obviously, but this video is really rather nice. also, mic porn # not a big foo fighters fan. not my thing. but huge fan of dave grohl the man. here he is, telling stories, which are enjoyable. they're written down too so you don't have to sit through a video in real time like most other things now, which is good. # big jeff. rich pointed him out to me at a shellac gig late in 2019 (beforetimes, just), and then he cropped up again later in 2020 over the renaming of colston hall. his response to that was really quite wonderful. the world is better for characters - genuine ones, kind ones, not cunts like toad face brexit man, faux bumbling eton mess creator and the big orange baby # sledgehammer's brilliant. fun quick breakdown of what's going on # g skinflowers # 'how did it come to this?' - i like john niven # 'terminal window' is also on spotify (linked) and other streaming services. enjoy # powerful - someone saying 'stop'. # nice thoughtful review of recent kingmaker boxset, which i only just discovered had been released. i loved this band # luke stidson released an amazing record a while back called anaglyphs. we've crossed paths many many times, and it was a joy to work with him on terminal window back in 2017. he's just written this fabulous piece at # our pre-millennial classic 'skinflowers - data in a hurry' is now available on those modern streaming sites, with more to follow. go rediscover it. # thoughtful thesis on the interplay of resurgent fascism and the virus. especially interesting in the context of the theatre proposed by outgoing wannabe despot re: discharge from medical centre (search: independent walter reed superman t-shirt) # styles --> kurt --> bowie. still has a kick. # 'I got a 2.1 because of you' # i just woke up one morning and it struck me that i was a murderer. so i quit. # fuck that shit # 'As you can see, this is not a uniform experience of chaos' # same site as the gng link. i strongly agree # ghosts n goblins # For me, police work was a logic puzzle for arresting people, regardless of their actual threat to the community. # i always liked websites like this, and love it when i come across them now, now they're less of a given. # coincidentally just finished reading kushner's masters of doom. some sort of legally stuff means this page has disappeared, also from web.archive. pdf linked # a fast, searchable archive of winamp skins, from before everything looked the same (and was often hella ugly) # the last one # cataclysm: dark days ahead # awesome (old) computer graphics exhibit # my deoderant hides the real me # the coming war on general computation # benevolent sexism # under heavy manners. 'remain in hell without despair'. fripp! byrne! busta jones! # we're not in this together # have always loved this linda mccartney photo # interesting to see this explained so clearly/a process made transparent # 'bet you didn't think it'd happen to you, all used up halfway through' # 'this is how it begins' # fear of the liar # everything has really gone to shit since david bowie died # silence is health - how totalitarianism arrives # a lot of truth in this # happy memory of sitting on a beach in devon last year reading a locally sourced viz, private eye and a 2000ad # read this # rip it up and start again # fuck it. a flock of seagulls today # never really paid much attention to the cult, but have always loved billy duffy's guitar playing # highly recommend this - dorohedoro # bowie + reznor # what religion or reason could drive a man to forsake his lover # nice post about the atari logo. other interesting stuff on the site too. # constantly return to this on popular video streaming site, only recently discovered it wasn't an 'official' release but a fan produced project. amazing. tilda happened to ask while it was on why i don't wear colourful clothes. i pointed at the screen, said 'see these people? if this was in colour it'd still look black and white'. nin - cold and black and infinite # dord # obstinate by the chaos engine is one of my favourite albums, and the further we get from it in time, the more I find it remarkable. it's here, free. # another great old fashioned website. this time someone's obsession with contra/gryzor # discussed with rich the other day that the atari st was clearly everyone's favourite member of skinflowers. # 2001? possibly. probably. gloucester guildhall, which was always a thrill to play. a proper PA, stage, lights ... # 1998 # didn't see the tvgohome series at the time but found them on youtube the other day. the continuity framework - genuinely eerie and disturbing - works better than the more conventional sketches. # on a theme today. there's some great stuff here - nice old skool site about arcades # the curse of atari # how are dictionaries made?
