I'm With The 99

I feel like I've been repeating myself here recently, so at risk of boring you here's another song from Big Audio Dynamite. Their musical stew does seem suited to this hot weather, and the other day I found this footage of them playing back in April at Shepherds Bush Empire. The link takes you to the encore of The Bottom Line and E=MC2. Looks like everyone had a good time and they don't sound too shabby either. Worth seven minutes of your Sunday evening.

This is Other 99, from the Tighten Up Vol. '88 album, a lively little song that I've had on repeat over the weekend, with Mick celebrating realistic underachievement and showing some humility that maybe was absent when he was in The Clash.

While I'm here, if you haven't already get over to Castles In Space where Nolan Micron has spent the weekend posting a load of acid house. Before that he'd posted a bucketful of early Warp, which I burnt onto cd and led to my head imploding when I listened to it on Friday evening. Stunning bleep house fest.
