Prequels


I don't know about prequels- the three Star Wars prequels are the biggest waste of celluloid time I can of. Clones. Tax dispute. Jar Jar Binks. Overactive and unconvincing CGI. Ewan McGregor's accent. Yawn.

Rich Lane and his Cotton Dubs on the other hand are always worth keeping an eye on. In the middle of August he released a three track ep featuring Prequels and City of Culture. Prequels is a slow motion, chug affair with a robot voice. It is not a million miles from the Code 61 Belgian New Beat track I posted recently. City Of Culture is top quality electronic dub reggae. The current City of Culture is Hull- I don't know if this is a tribute to Hull or not (Rich is from Wolverhampton which has never been City of Culture). The third track is a dub of the Prequels. You can buy all three for a measly £2.50 from Bandcamp.

'Chug' really should be a genre in its own right. That one word sums up this tune perfectly. Good stuff SA.

The start of The Godfather Part 2? Indiana Jones & The Temple of... alright, you have a point.

Prequels, if you can't go forward, go back. Never a good idea. Like bands reforming. (discuss)

Slowdive and Ride have done a very good job of it!

Have to agree with Mr. Doherty's point on Ride and Slowdive .
As a kid who preferred Close In Counter Of The Third Kind to Star Wars (the fantastic over fantasy), I wholly agree that the Star Wars prequels are hours of wasted time.

I was thinking about Galaxie 500 the other day. They'd probably make a decent fist of reforming.
