To those that dissed me for posting pictures of my t-shirts as lazy – fuck you (dedicated to Bumrocks.com) 

So its not all doom and gloom over in the Stupid Hat Towers – I’ve been listening to some amazing music of late – and not just good hype music but music that stirs the soul and reminds you why you started listening to music in the first place .

Hard Times by Baby Huey has been a staple of mine for a long time – back in Bristol it was a classic but we really only played it because it had been sampled by so many hip hop people – recently I’ve been listening to it from another angle – that of a man that finds no love in this crazy town  – my favorite lyric is towards the end where he says ‘eating spam, and Oreos and drinking Thunderbird baby’ – too good.

Bumrocks.com is a site I’ve been banging on about for ages – seriously I love this site – it might be my favorite blog and defo my favorite podcast – they don’t post up any information about the songs – its just a song a day – but seriously its like they bought up all Dave Mancuso‘s and Larry Levan‘s personal record collections and are just sifting through – everyday I get a new tune and seriously I’ve 99% of the time never ever even heard of the songs or artists – seriously I can’t tell you enough times to go and add this to your podcast list – seriously seriously seriously.
