We used to use this blog to write coded love letters to each other. Hiding in plain site so to speak. The need speak our quixotic dreams into life in this way has long since past, so we are finally leaving the latitudes, the breeze having picked up enough to take us on towards our destination. Thank you for sharing the ride, for those who contributed, made music amazing enough for us to obssess over or who linked in or took the time to comment. We had a great time. If you have [...]
Can't wait for this one-Inie and Karen sure know how host a party. It's a slightly different kinda of vibe to the shows we usually play-a little bit more intimate and potentailly really quite sweaty (and that's just Christoph). We're gonna be playing a load of new stuff , including the first ever play of our just finished A D Bourke remix for Citinite . (we're really excited about that one!!) Come down if you're local (half the door goes to Haiti, so it will be good for your soul as well) [...]
New Venue, new logo, same killer party. Ain't It Black is back! After a mystic hiatus, the underground house-party extraordinaire of Shoreditch will be holding its relaunch party at East Village. I can't freakin' wait. It's Ulysses 82 's spiritual home and we will be setting lazers to kill for this one. More details here . Book it in.
What I can’t afford to do — and I deeply hope you guys also won’t even attempt to do — is to live in a world of unlimited access (in- or outbound) that requires you to pretend anyone who happens to trip over your doormat should get precisely the same attention, respect, interest, and focus as Real People You Know. They come first. Scarcity. It’s a real thing. Because that way lies utter madness and, frankly, it makes a charade of your actual life. Interrupting your focus on your own work, family, and friends in [...]
Cormac McCarthy is auctioning the Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter he has used for the past 50 years (and 5 million words). Cormac McCarthy has written more than a dozen novels, several screenplays, two plays, two short stories, countless drafts, letters and more — and nearly every one of them was tapped out on a portable Olivetti manual typewriter he bought in a Knoxville, Tenn., pawnshop around 1963 for $50. The way you do things, always affects how the things themselves. link
It's all Dam-Funk 's fault. After weeks and months procrastinating over what to do with the ever increasing Archive de Ulysses82 -it was the chance to hand over some 'cheap heat' to the west coast's leader of the nu-funk revolution, that finally prompted us to get our act together. The result is a 4 track ep of edits and versions we have played and given to friends over the past 6-9 months or so. It's a chance for those of you weird enough not to be checking hypemachine every week for new [...]

Elizabeth Kolbert's amazing takedown of Superfreakonomics , for the New Yorker. Truly career ending.
A review of the Coen brothers' forthcoming film ' A Serious Man '
Many observers of the smoking wreckage which now passes for our banking system have opined that, in addition to being hobbled by a fragmented regulatory system riddled with overlapping and ill-defined responsibilities, the regulators who were supposed to be watching the chicken coop were woefully overmatched by the foxes. The Epicurean Dealmaker on how best to regulate the banking system. Hire psychopaths .
Here is an (almost) exclusive chance to check the title track from the forthcoming ' Reflections On Creation and Bass ' long player "People at the End of Time". I've got the finished article on heavy repeat in itunes, and whilst I may be a little biased (it being made by my brother and all) I genuinely think it's one of the heaviest things I've heard all year. We are in the process of sorting out some live shows for later in the year (and a possible Ulysses82 collaboration) and I will fill [...]

Still not sure if I want to put my head back there. But it sounds really true to the book .
It sounds really true to the book , which is both a good and a bad thing. Still not sure if I really want to put my head back there. At least you can put a book down, have a drink, and come back to it a couple of hours later.
John Fordham on the enduring legacy of Miles' seminal album; As is now part of jazz folklore, the New York sessions that produced this remarkable album were completed in a handful of takes over just a few hours, with a minimum of compositional materials. Davis, guided by faith in the powers of his band, knew he was on to something revolutionary, and the outcome has supported that conviction ever since.
