During Work...

I'm posting these up while sitting at my work desk so apologies if my writing's a bit shoddy. Beats working, eh? Tonight I'll be warming myself up for the Our Disco event tomorrow (see below) by venturing down to Timbuk 2 to check Puffin Jack camping up the main room in support of the Scissor Sisters' DJ Sammy Jo. I think it's quite safe to say that he'll be probably be pulling out The Bangles' classic 'Walk Like An Egyptian' along with Greg Wilson's Chaka Khan edit from his 'Credit To The Edit' series. These two songs have been staples in his 'so fun you can't stand still' sets and I guarantee everyone there'll be in for a treat. Well worth checking out, if I do say so myself.There's nothing wrong with a bit of tasteful cheese, as this song shows. Victor's 'Go On Do It' was re-released with on Morgan Geist's Environ label as part of the Unclassics series, and is easily my favourite of the bunch. Morgan stretches it out on the flipside with his 'Breakfast Club Dub', but it's all about the original with it's frankly ridiculous male/female call and response vocal. Wonky italo-pop at it's finest.

I stumbled upon this track a month or so ago after checking out Turner's previous works and it's been on my stereo continuously since then. It's a slice of uplifting yet melancholy 'micro-goth' (well that's what the ILM bunch call it - check out the thread here) and reminds me of some of Superpitcher's best work. The 'micro-goth' tag seems to stem from the strung out, downbeat yet rousing techno sound that I've been loving over the past couple of years - Sherburne seems think 'goth-disco' fits the bill better, but how about 'emo-tech' for an absurd genre invention? It's hardly the dizzy heights that Steve Lamacq scaled when he wrote about the 'Camden Lurch' scene back when he was writing for the NME, is it? Forget the pigeonholing, just download and enjoy Carsten Jost's superb remix from back in early 2004.

And the files are labelled properly which is nice. What's the score with people putting up files without the artist names at the start?

Morgan, Morgan, Morgan... We love him so...

wow, clicking on that microgoth link brought back some memories.

That recent Mathias Schaffhäuser pan pot remix has some goth elements to it
