7  General / The Forum / Heads up on RnB, needed. on: December 07, 2006, 16:10:56
Ok, firstly this is not my bag at all, this is a favour for an old old friend from back way when.

He's essentially asked me to find out the score with RnB/Urban/commercial Hip Hop in the city right now. I'm involved in an entirely different music scene and don't have a scooby where to look for this shit.

I'm hoping to provide him with some promoters names, any homegrown artists we have here in Bristol, which nights are the most popular, is there any industry here i.e labels, mags etc.......He also needs a young RnB steed voice artist for a project he's working on, he has 3 incredibly well kitted out studios and has deadlines for this project, so it's essentially quite important that I can help him with this info.

Any help you guys can give me would be mad appreciated.

Peace.

i used to go to tonnes of punk/ska gigs in my yoot, we used to have quite a decent scene, stuff like

consumed
goober patrol
vanilla pod
one car pile up
snuff
captain everything
a band whos name escapes me but always used to get naked and pretend to have canoes

used to go to london to see the glow skulls, nofx, vandals

alas i am rubbish at going to see band s now.


Ska's not totaly my thing (unles you're talking The Specials) well it was for a hot minute one summer, I remember Goober Patrol from old skate videos, they were pretty decent, kinda interesting if memory serves. I roadied for the Glow Skulls last year for their Bristol show, real nice guys and I'd forgot how much I liked them that one summer....they did the whole bring memories rushing back thing, rad.
25  General / The Forum / Re: Live music on: May 17, 2006, 13:20:10
I guess I see about 15 bands a week on average,
A week??
How do you manage this?





Mainly through my devout Gandalph faith and opression of the Welsh.

Nah, because I play in a band, (check out www.myspace.com/shadowlawmafia ) so I'll see 3 bands that evening, I run at least 2 Deadpunk nights a week and work at the Croft as well.  And if I'm not working or playing I'll go to a show. Last week was actually about 18.

It's sick, even if the bands aren't great I can guarantee to learn something and more often than not I find new bands that I like and never would have heard before. Live music is the shit.

Check it out;-


is this Mr Otteridge posting under a new alterego?!

Nope it's Mr Otteridge's minion, Dan, Matty sorts out the shows then I go down and run some of them for him, generally twice a week.

I guess I see about 15 bands a week on average, Live music is the shit. I in fact know one guy that works for a skate shop the other side of the country that 'Doesn't like live music', this guy is all of a wrong 'un and should have his vote taken away (or his thumbs; funny how thumbs seem more use).

Last few bands go like this;-

Raised Fist - Awesome slammin hardcore, been goin since '83, maximum respect. A super frenetic live performance, intenstiy levels through the roof, and musically you couldn't fault them, the dummer had tech ability exacted at hyper speeds, stoked.

Bridge to Solace - I love this band, but didn't love them live as much as I thought I may, the sound was a bit crappy I thought.

The Downs - (Not a reference to Disabled people as I thought) Damn these guys gonna go real far, they're all around 15/16 and can play their shit real good and real tight, they're kind of Ska / Indy / Funk, it sounded pretty fresh, this could have been aided by the fact that the other bands were mediocore at best.

The Rob Stone Band - Good at what they do, not my bag of meat at all. You just can't use lyrics like 'You can't change me it's my life' anymore, they've been used three gasquillion times already lads !! Mediocore.

Drummer vs The DJ - This shit was tight, the section with just drums and double bass was awesome and entirely credible as playing what they say they are on the tin. Jaygo's drumming is great, he manages to keep every bar different, something that I feel a lot of D'n'B lacks on, his true drum skills slant on this made everything come alive and make a lot of sense. Good shit.
28  General / The Forum / Re: Hijack Poetry thread on: May 16, 2006, 15:25:13
this is my prayer. let it be yours too.
Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata,

32  General / The Forum / Re: Holiday in the sun...... on: May 12, 2006, 12:15:52
The problem with flying to Greece from Bristol is that the flights tend to be in the middle of the night - this *can* bump up the cost and stress factor.

Very worth it though - I spent 2 weeks island hopping round Greece a few years ago, avoiding all the mainstrem tourist islands (the likes of Rhodes, Zakynthos, Crete, Kos etc) and it was truly awesome.

I waqs thinking of going in september so this should cut the cost a little.

Yo, how did you do the island hopping thing ?? Just book a few nights in the first place, then wing it from there ?? That sounds amazing, did it cost a lot ??

I've done 5 islands on seperate trips, so getting more down would be sick.

We were lucky in that we had a base in Glifarda (can't remember how to spell that!) so we started there, went to Aegina (which was also a base) on the dolphin, then on to Poros, Hydra, Spetses, then back to Aegina, then we went overland over the Corinth Canal to the peninsula (again, can't remember how to spell it but it's Peliponnese or something) and stayed in Nafplion for a bit, then got a coach up to Delphi - stunning place!

Truth Delphi is amazing, I've also been over the Corinth canal which I believe Nero started with a golden shovel, that was ok.....The Pelopanese (sp) was amazing went to Sparta and checked out warrior relics and history (and more interestingly their attitude towards the role of females in their society) and also went to Olympia and ran the first ever olympic track......man I'm seriously gettin turned back onto Greece.

Thanks Miss Hooty McBoob, salutes to ya.

I'm sure it is awesome Lou but I'm seriously thinking a cheap week in the sun doin very little, also a short flight is pretty appealing plus leaving from Bristol would be ideal, totally reducing any stress factors.

the main problem I'm having is, you go on a website, peep their homepage and they're pimping amazing deals e.g. Croatia, 7 days, self catering 189...use search function to book......but when you actually go through the whole process using the dates stated on the offer it actually turns out to cost in excess of 500, I'm considering going into a travel agents and playing them off against each other.
35  General / The Forum / Re: Holiday in the sun...... on: May 12, 2006, 11:11:58
Safe, cheers for that, I remember some family friends going to Croatia a few years ago when they were getting on top of re-building their tourist industry and the feedback was really good.

In all honesty I am a little stuck on Greece but in the same breath it's always good to check out new things / places.
36  General / The Forum / Holiday in the sun...... on: May 12, 2006, 10:44:18
I was going to entitle this thread 'Help me get skin cancer', but thought that was a bit off hence the generic piss boring title I'm running wit now.

Basically I need a holiday, badly, all the holidays I've been on in the last 5 years have been to New York, which yeah is sick but (and it's a big but, booty almost) it's super hectic and this time I want to chill for a week, I used to spend a bit of time in Greece and it was great, I'm thinking, lazing on the beach, fishing in the docks, Tavernas of the evening....... so I want back at the end of the summer.

To my question; does anyone have good experiences of holidays that come with accomadation i.e. package deals that aren't 18-30 or some shit ?? I need it to be cheap but from a reliable company / website. Another thing - can you play holiday companies off against each other ?? i.e. get them to price match ??

help! i'm stuck in falmouth coz i missed my bus and there are pirates after me Doh!. is anyone driving down here that i could bogart a lift back with? i've got a bit of money for petrol and i will be forever in your dept.
going to a free party in the country somwhere too if your up 4 it??


Oh mate!! wing it on the train is my advice.. if u can get to Par then you'll be alright.. there must be loads of trains up here today.. even if you get chucked off 6 times you'll still make it back by nightfall.. and dont go for any of the hidin in toilets bollocks.. just look at em and say.. nah mate you checked my ticket Wink

Good luck!!!!!!
I used to find that the best way to do it was to find a seat at one end of the train & leave your stuff there, then walk towards the other end of the train and when you come across the conductor, make sure to say something to them as you walk past - ask them the time or something - and make sure they see your face. Then go back to your seat & they usually think they've asked you for your ticket already. Worked for me many times when i was at uni.

Problems arise if you're getting on at the first stop (as EVERYONE has their tickets checked) or you're getting off at Bristol (where you need a ticket to get out the station).

Bristol end just take a local train to wherever, at worst it'll cost you a quid.

39  General / The Forum / Re: ooo New FOPP opening on Whiteladies Road on: May 10, 2006, 10:10:46
fopp started out as an independent record store just down the road from me in glasgow, started selling cut-outs (excess cds from other countries) for 3. Soon it was picking up whole artists back catalogues for 5 just before their new album was released, then they'd up the price, but always sold the new album for a tenner, so they'd make a mint from the folk getting into an artist just on the crest of excitement pre-release, get all the initial sales on the new album, and then sell the back catalogue for lots once the artist got wide-spread credibility.

They killed off three other local record shops with this tactic over the space of 5 or so years, and then moved elsewhere in the country, killing off loads of the competition, including Imperial Records. Clever chappies, and, to be honest, it'd be cool if it was still in it's original incarnation, and not branched out into dvds and books, which has diluted their music section dramatically, the more experimental stuff going first. I miss Imperial. Sad

Ok fair shout to them on a shrewd business sense, as they say all's fair in business, love and war. But yeah Imperial, seems aeons ago, I guess the thing to do is to make sure as much business goes to Replay as possible.

Sup, my name as you can probably see is Dan Wound (the 'Wound' bit comes from a band I was in for nearly 10 years).

 I work for a skate company doing sales and looking after the team, the companies I represent include shit like, Independent, Alien Workshop, Krooked, Spitfire and many more, Im happy to say my job kills it. Two to Three evenings a week I also work at the Croft in one of two capacities either behind the bar or on the door to the back room, making sure bands have their shit together. Working there is a bunch of fun (Sup Ducklegs).

Leisure time....well I've been skating for 12 years, don't get out that much these days but it's still the best way to travel and I still have 5.0's on lock. I part time study theology more based around gnostic stuff. I like to go fishing every couple of weeks for some 100% relaxation.

Most of my free time is spent doing vocals for Shadow Law, a power metalcore band, this involves managing it with ma boy Corleone, but basically it means a lot of studio time and heading out of Bristol most weeks for shows (Hereford tomoz). Shadow Law is my main passion in life, I love that shit and am very proud to share the stage with a bunch of ridiculously talented musicians. We're at www.myspace.com/shadowlawmafia Check it out even though it may not be your bag of meat.

Music I listen to can vary, as Metal is what I write and play but listening to it all day aint super great. My I-Tunes, next 20 on random includes, Jackie Mitto, Beastie Boys, Tower of Power, Isis, Frank Sinatra, NWA, Sam Cooke, Eek a Mouse, Frank Zappa and many more, so it's pretty all over the shop really. Recently thanks to Gar at the Croft and a few other heads I've been getting back into my hip hop and checking out Dubstep, which is awesome for me as it's so fresh to these ears !! Hence I'm here to pick up on some tracks.

Ok well that was damn long, but hell, I gots a lot goin on. But yeah just a general hi and nod of the head to all on here. Peace.
