Brooks is back
The new Brooks CD, "Red Tape" will be released by Herbert's Soundslike label on Aug/Sept. The tracklist: accidents/restoration/roxxy/bedbugs/enormous memebers'club/man-size/burning buxx/tell somebody about us/a little bit of time/do the math/red tape. Reviewing the current single, which includes do the math/tell somebody about the beat/man-size/little drummer boys Hackneyed Central says things like: "If anyone tells you that stars don’t exist in today’s electronic music scene, shout the name of Brooks in their ignorant fucking face" and "crunchy 4/4 percussion, the barest of hook lines, defiantly harsh frequencies, and a low slung, sultry vocal". Promising.

Apple Launches iTunes Music Store in the UK, France & Germany
I know they have the largest legal catalogue in the world but,
... still cannot find the tunes of most of this blog's favourite artists.
And I do not know if this is Apple's fault or the independent-small companies that normally issue the music this blog likes' fault.
I reckon iTunes won't make much money out of artists like e.g. Andres, but
... taking into account the costs of making those songs available, low sales shouldn't be a problem for them.
Anyway, welcome to Europe iTunes.

- I am really enjoying a lot Theo Parrish' "Parallel Dimensions", the re issue of his lost album on Ubiquity. This guy is ace. File him next to Moodymann and Andrés in the deep, deep, deep house shelves.
- I am a bit disappointed by the new Kaskade CD. Stick to the old one better.
- I am still a bit confused about the Junior Boys' "Last Exit" CD ...

From the Amsterdam official website: "Amsterdam is a wonderful city. However, just like any other major city, Amsterdam has problems with crime. Fake police officers, for instance.These fake policemen are usually men of Eastern European origin who pretend to be police officers. This is how they operate".

How to spot them:
- Fake police officers always operate in civilian clothing. Real police officers working in civilian clothing will only very rarely carry out this type of check.
- Some fake police officers use shiny police badges as proof of identity. The real police in the Netherlands never use badges.

And above all ... real police officers in The Netherlands are extremely bad mannered. If you are treated politely, then they are definitely not real policemen!
Upcoming Paradisco3000:
18/06/2004 Theo Parrish & The Rotating Assembly, Antal, All Out K, Rednose Distrikt. Yes, at Paradiso.

Alone like a dog
I read in a Morrissey interview by Serge Simonart ... "to live alone is a privilege. It is a privilege to be free as a bird". And also: "I have nothing in life apart from dignity. Nothing at all".

And I also read raving reviews of the Canadians Junior Boys debut album, "Last Exit".

Jimpster news
Freerange is planning to release "a remix album which will contain selected highlights from Jimpster's extensive catalogue of remixes including some hard to find gems by artists such as Lisa Shaw, Blue Six, John Beltran and Fragile State to name a few".
Sounds good. I hope the CD is not mixed.
Troubleman: Another release to watch out
Mark Pritchard, formerly part of Global Communication and Jedi Knights, is releasing a solo CD "Time Out of Mind" as Troubleman on Far Out Recordings. According to Far Out's press note "Trouble Man’s debut album can only be characterized by one word – s o u l".
