Chickity Chocco, The Chocolate Chicken indeed

Found a link to a demoey unreleased version of ‘Scenario’ by A Tribe Called Quest with verses from De La and Black Sheep. Pretty beast. Go here

Track of the day obviously

Found a link to a list of the greatest bald people ever. I feel hurt and excluded. For what it’s worth, I started to lose my hair at the age of 17 and first noticed when a lad I know called Justin stated poking fun at the fact that he could see my scalp at any given point through my dracula meets aha haircut. I’ll dig out a photo one o’ these days. Shag it, the list….here ya go

p.s. Emmanuelle, the ‘classic’ saucy nudey flick is a pile o poo. It has less of a plot than Mulholland Drive (which actually rules). Anyway, saw it last night. total underwear. As I type I’m listening to Bobby Conn and The Glass Gypsies – The Homeland. Its also pretty pants. I like that new Fleet Foxes though.

Intro to ‘Vinyl’ Documentary (only a clip but watch the rest)


The list that really matters

24 07 2008

I was cleaning out cobwebs over at the forum over at our official site when I read over The Super Duper MJEX Favourites List. It’s a list we made about a year ago ranting about our favourite movies books and music and all the usual arty lark we’d jibber jabber on about. Despite the fact that i would change something in almost every section, I’m pretty satisfied. How and ever I think the time has come to make an even more important list. As many may know I am a fat fuck. Not in the traditional sense as in moobs and chins (although I have put on a few, my girlfriend tells me) but in the sense that I LOVE FOOD. I will freely admit I’m generally always hungry, or wanting to taste pleasant treats. The second , or is it third, shag it…another reason I am making this list is because I had an intense discussion about desert island junk food the other day and I got unbelievably heated and passionate as the possibilities and limitations swirled around my head. Fates conspiring. Food rocks end of story. And here is the list:

Favourite chocolate bar: Cadbury’s Double Decker

Favourite crisps: Anything by McCoys, (King uber Tayto btw)

Favourite Ice cream: old school mr. whippy sans flake. (when I hear that match of the day music I genuinely miss a heart beat. I think it’s because footie and Ice cream are suggested simultaneously and I cannot compute the elation inside)

Favourite sandwich: Turkey, Coleslaw, Sweetcorn, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Lettuce, Brie/Cheddar Cheese in 2 cuts of fresh poppy seed Vienna roll

Favourite soft drink: Fanta, no ice, from graham o sullivans type dispensers ONLY

Favourite cereal: Honey Nut Loops (Full fat or Low Fat milk. Slimline is grimline)

Favourite fruit: Blueberries/Strawberries/Grapes (I despise Mangoes and Raspberries. Mangoes smell of bins)

Favourite condiment: soy sauce

Thing I eat/drink every day pretty much without fail: cheese and coffee (not mixed though)

Favourite desert: cheesecake

Things I wish I ate more and have to remind myself to do so: Birdseye potato waffles, corn on the cob, Camembert, fig rolls, almond fingers, battered sausages, lilt, babybells, figs, olives

Most overrated dish: pasta (It’s nice but insanely repetitive. no twirly shapes are gonna fool old MJ)

Thing that people think is lovely but really isn’t: lots of organic food. It’s very often less tasty, dearer, smaller and discoloured…mmmmmm.

Favourite adult drink: Guinness

I don’t see why everybody fusses about: Coca Cola, Ham (Ham is just grand, overused though)

Fancy yuppy trendy item I can’t get enough of: Hummus

Biscuit or Cake: Cake

Restaurant in Dublin: Yamamori Sushi

I’m done. If anybody wants to fly down to Tescos or Lidl feel free

Track Of The Day: Buck 65 – FOOD

This is a very silly idea.


The Buck 65 Symphony

21 07 2008


Buck 65 is a wonderful man. We have had the good fortune of playing gigs with him a few times and he is easily one of the nicest musicians we have ever met and is cool as fuck. I stumbled upon this live show where he preformed in his home town of Halifax, Nova Scotia with a full orchestra. He comments during the set that this has been one of his life long dreams and if I am being completely honest it is also one of my life long dreams to perform with an orchestra. He played an 11 song set many of which have undergone quite a metamorphosis. It’s a delightful listen and he even manages to sneak in some of the Fine Young Cannibals anthem “Johnny Won’t You Come On Home”. I really advise people to check this out!!!!



Portishead covers Pt.2????

18 07 2008

Party People,

Just something else I stumbled upon there. One of my favourite bands & comedians seem to have joined forces. Personally I think that this is probably an “in-joke” for the band but others will obviously call it plagarism. You decide!


Up North Trip

18 07 2008

we’re doing our first Belfast show in yonks on friday august 8th in the Lisburn arts centre as part of the Lisburn Revolution festival. also performing on the night are fight like apes. its a showcase for southern bands and is our only confirmed gig for the next couple of months.

Radiohead keep pushing the envelope. Here’s the new vid done with no cameras or lights:



Portishead covers

18 07 2008

Party People.

Have been revisting the Portishead album “Third” a lot recently and I think it is rather smashing. I think it will be one of the best albums to come out this year. Personally I think Portishead are one of the greatest bands of all time and have bearly put a foot wrong throughout their whole career. Every thing I have ever heard them do together or as a part of a side project (Beth’s “Out of Season” LP, Geoff Barrow’s beats on Stephaine McKays “McKay” LP & Adrian Utley’s production on Goldfrapp’s “Felt Mountain”) have been amazing.

This leads me to a very very rare 7″ that Geoff & Adrian brought out under the different monikor “The Jimi Entley Sound”.  It is a piece of vinyl I would very very very much like to own (3 very’s …i want it bad) so much so if anyone owns one or knows where I could buy one please tell me. On it there are two cover versions of The Shadows “Apache” (which has the illest drum break!!!!) and the Edan sampled “Charlie’s Theme”. Below are youtube links so you can hear just exactly how fucking amazing these versions are. Enjoy.


Charlie’s Theme:


Now I Am The Master. i mean have

15 07 2008

We got the forthcoming album mastered at the weekend and me and l’experte are making sure we’re happy with what we have gotten back. we got it mastered with guy davie (he did our last album and  foals and the streets and lots of big names) over in the uk. it’s actually flippin bananas how many times i have listened to this record. bunches of bananas… i like the track order (which will be revealed in due course) we have chosen and i think twelve tracks at 47 minutes is a nice set of numbers for any rekkid

I have been listening to four albums on repeat recently, all of which i dig. They are “Funky Nassau” by The Beginning of the end , “Ritual” by Jape, “Too Rye Ah” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners and “This Is England OST” by Various Artists. Here are some video versions of highlights from all four:

The Beginning Of The End – Funky Nassau

Jape – Graveyard (promo)

Dexy’s Midnight Runners – Jackie Wilson Said (live)

Al Barry & The Cimarons – Morning Sun
