I’ve been carrying my golden age hip hop around in this old carrier bag from Beggars Banquet. It’s from around the late eighties. Classic gold on bin liner style black plastic. The record shop is still there. It was bought out from the previous owners, changing it’s name to Banquet Records in the process. They’ve just celebrated their 10 anniversary under the new name and the shop is pretty much the go to place for anything remotely cool in Kingston Upon Thames!
This growing trend for old record shop carrier bags is about to blow up big time in 2015 so remember where you read it first! 😉
After I few glasses of red last night I was looking for my favourite Nurse With Wound track on YouTube. The one that Nurse With Wound did with Stereolab. This one;
I then stumbled across this great and all too short ‘documentary’ on Steven Stapleton. His farm in Ireland, his creative spaces and his ‘alcoholic children’!

A year ago myself and two friends suggested that each time the three of us get together we should do a compilation of unknown tunes and exchange them on the night. The result of which was CDR1. We would then spend the next couple of days trying to work out what was on what and gradually reveal the track listings over emails.
However due to time, work, life and our shit social skills its taken us a year to come up with our second night together. Yes, a year. So here it is. For Darren and Butch, CDR2.
