Timelesss - S.A.W  Love You know it. Surprised to not see Plaid/Boards of Canada/Orbital/The Orb/FSOL in your list?

Thanks Dave, had to make a selection though, but you're right they all should have been there - Autechre as well!

Hello everybody!

I came across this site when carrying out my uni final year project on club culture but only now I’ve managed to post this  Undecided All the mates I used to go clubbing with left Bristol and I lost a bit of touch with the ‘scene’ - hope this forum might help!

A bit of an atypical poster I guess, I’m Italian and 41. Finished to study last June at UWE and am still in Bristol working as research assistant and trying to keep on studying.

Despite it is a cliché, yes I do listen to all types of music. I love the music of John Coltrane, Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Charlie Parker, Robert Johnson, Ornette Coleman, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, King Tubby, Burning Spear, Skatalites, Velvet Underground,  Lou Reed, The Stooges, Robert Wyatt, The Clash, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Claude Debussy, Fela Kuti, Sly & the Family Stone, Neil Young, Nick Drake, Serge Gainsbourg, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Kraftwerk, Aphex Twin, Public Enemy, Tom Waits, U-Roy...well it might go forever! And of course in the 90’s I was hit by House (girlfriend of that time converted me from punk/reggae parties to raves), Techno (Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works 85-92 still sounds amazing after 20 years), the Bristol scene (Massive Attack, Tricky, Portishead, Roni Size) and some Metalheadz drum’n’bass (perhaps Goldie’s Timeless the best ‘pop’ album of the decade?).

When clubbing I would say I prefer a ‘minimal’ sound, possibly very ‘dubby’ if it makes sense (techno like Basic Channel may be a good example) but if the music is fine any genres go – in the recent past I heard excellent dubstep here in Bristol. Oh I’m into cinema as well, nice stuff coming up from Asia and Africa or old French and Italian movies.

Anyway, apart from all the geeky stuff above, it would be nice to hear from you for some wise clubbing (and more) tip, exchange music and make friends!

Thanks and bye now!
