As promised in the previous post, the musical gems encountered at the Park Hill screening were just as good. Call me a luddite, but i’m not the most au fait with Warp Records artists. The usual suspects (Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Autechre) I have some faint musical grasp about, however delving deeper into their catalogue of artists blew my tiny mind. Perhaps a little OTT, but really, it makes you want to look a little further than the more popular dance/electronica characters. The thing all of the Warp bands have in common is the refreshingly subtle, wierd, good videos. For example… (more…)

Warp Records celebrated its 20th anniversary last weekend back in its birthplace Sheffield. Any excuse to go back to Sheffield is fine by me, so that I did. Quite a few events were going on. Mega rave at Magna Science Museum Park JCB place on the Saturday, however I spurned this to spend the evening watching films on a council estate (partly due to the out of my monetary league £19 ticket price for the dance extravaganza, partly because I love council estates).

As is half the world, i’m currently going through a Tarantino phase.

If you have half an hour I suggest you watch his first film short from allll the way back in 1987. According to numerous sources this isn’t the complete piece given it was partially lost in some kind of unfortunate editing room fire, so you may have to join the dots somewhat plot-wise. Either way, i’ve watched it three times since last night… I don’t have a job. But listening to rockabillies chat about Elvis Presley and Eddie Cochran is how I like to spend my time. It’s a tad sketchy in parts, however I like films that I feel I could probably recreate myself (look out for a TooLegit knock off film genre. We have the required filmaking know how*). Anyway, the soundtrack is amazing and some of the lines are even better. Personal favourite being “your ass is grass, and i’m the lawnmower”, which is now in my everyday lingo.

P.S. Recognise the character name ‘Aldo Raine’….?

*Film making know how refers to our Langside epic. A lost classic. Only Liz will even understand this. Private joke.
