    Nice auld weekend i suppose.. back in kerry for the 1st time in an age, in horans of tralee.. and didn`t we rise and rise r wot??!! iv heard some "we want more" behaviour after a set, but this was pure intimidating!! i didn`t even have 2 ask the staff twice if i shud play 1 more (thrice as it happend!).the crowd simply _insisted_ we continue waaaay past the curfew!(allegedly) heheheh! nice 2 b bak as i said, but a horrificly busy weekend meant major messiness on the logistix front.. i drove down thru a ROSE OF TRALEE & FLEADH CEOL soulclash meets a U2 and ALL IRELAND SEMIFINAL rumpous,serious confused roads, but not a rozzer was left dangling with so many ppl stopped by the side of the road getting on-the-spot fines.for once NOTHING to do with me!! cool! still, a bollocks of a drive, and a nasty hotel, well, to be fair, an alright hotel really, but it was RAMMED full of familys down for the events and we were boxed in by rooms full of bored kiddies.. boom-bang-a-bang went the walls and cieling ALL FUC*ING NIGHT! no sleep after the drive, we condoned the noise by leaving for horans with the TV Blaring CNN 2 ensure the little shits got no sleep till we said so.. about 4.30am we let them off, but they got revenge, despite earplugs and massive tiredness (it bieng a day of high NrG expenditure on our behalves) the little bleeders woke us at 8.30, a whole 3ish hours sleep? god. help. so we legged it home (via MATT THE THRASHERS for sunday heart-attack) and slept all day,thereby cancelling the cork-cru sunday mallet we'd planned - Now all this would have appeared alot less painfull if we'd got flights and decent accom.,but wot wid the FLEADH and shit we were lucky 2 hav not been sleeping in the bratmobile! Oh, and speaking of the BRATMOBILE, the DVD died this weekend, the PSU overheated and we got between 3 and 30 minutes b4 it shut itself down each reboot! Messy! i'll have to source a 12v fan for it,cos that's just plain messy stuff, after all the work ive done on it.. etc.. blah blah.. RE:SQUAD, i've had some email nominating Bubbles & Jesse as the most stuck-up guests we've had yet! even more high-and-mighty the ledgendary Arvine/Moy combo!? Well, i will roger that they did sneer above & beyond the call of duty at the victims,but that's the way they felt/are i presume.. and some of the critical barrage was well aimed IMHO,if You disagree with them, hold on, You'll get your chance sooner r l8r 2 xpress ur opinion, remember You can sit on our SUBS BENCH by emailing me Your phone number and name and a basic script on ur interests/tastes..

    Got 16388 hits this month so far - a new record!! I'm Gobsmacked!?

    Mostiko Belguim have done a triple-vinyl set called "retro classix" featuring stuff like : HOCUS POCUS,AGE OF LOVE,my VOYAGER 3.2(??),SCORPIO RISING,RITMO DELL DIAVOLO and RAMIREZ's EL GALLINERO and it`s out in europe now.. Some of these records are changing hands for 100 quid here STILL... FYI: the version of VOYAGER on the set is actually an edited version of the one that appears on FIFTH NINE, but it`s been very well mastered for vinyl and sounds extremely deep and ballsey!! Hey.. Voyager 2.x on Vinyl!! cool!! Cat#2320123-6, 2320124-6 & 2320125-6..

    Ahh.. so i never wrote up my trip to Leitrim this weekend.. so.. here we go: Very difficult conditions there.. steaming heat (so much my glazzies steamed up!) and a damaged tonearm on the left deck - the bloody thing would get stuck about 2/3 thru each tune, sometimes during my mix!! took me 3 messy mixes to work out it was sticking, sometimes very close to the _Actual_ tempo, so escaping my notice till the mix started to drift wyldly! a MAJOR pain, compounded by me telling the guy on b4 me it was fuc*ed and him saying "i know, it was doing it for me 2!! nice 1, so after some more complaining and looking for a backup deck (standard proceedure - remember this is a bent ARM, not a dull needle, or a popped head, a BENT ARM, from dropping the deck - so the arm wasn`t tracking right and the force of the head bieng dragged towards the centre of the record was too much - you could see the needle bending and rubbing against the stylushead when it was placed in a groove such was the force dragging it towards the centre!!) an guess what? no backup deck, not only that, but the decks WERE HIS DECKS!!!!! HE KNEW B4 WE STARTED THEY WUD DO THAT!! so, all those with as wrecked head as me about the night, blame him... he KNEW and he let the nite go ahead anyway.. go figger. BESIDES that, it rocked,and even i felt like fainting with the heat.. messy!!

    Check the chatroom whenever i'm on air (mon-thursday 21.00-23.00, sat 20.00-22.00) since it now works in work for some strage reason?!

    Tonight's classic movie - THE TRIP - Released in the US in 1967, but denied a UK certificate, The Trip was an exploitative feature, typical of Roger Corman's American International Pictures. The film starred Peter Fonda as a director of television commercials who takes a trip, encountering good and bad effects. The widespread ban which the film encountered was based largely on its subject matter, rather than an appraisal of its moralistic conclusion. Written by Jack Nicholson, The Trip also featured Dennis Hopper, both of whom teamed with Fonda two years later in Easy Rider. The plot of The Trip was largely insubstantial, but it served as a vehicle for Peter Gardiner's striking psychedelic effects. The soundtrack was provided by the Electric Flag, a new act formed by blues guitarist Mike Bloomfield. Their hallucinogenic-inspired music was aptly-suited to The Trip's visual images, particularly when the group was augmented by violinist Sandy Konikoff. Curiously, the Electric Flag did not appear in the film. The International Submarine Band, a country/pop quartet led by Gram Parsons were featured, although they mimed to one of the former group's songs. Parsons and Fonda were close friends, which perhaps explains their inclusion. Although revered as a genre classic, limited distribution has enhanced The Trip's reputation as much as its content.

    Oh shit... lost my bag on saturday night.. so i have no playlist for saturday's show.. all i can be sure of is the FIREN SQUAD was attended by AL GIBBS (fm104 telstar euphoria), DAVE PURNELL (normclubs/audio tec) and JAY AHERN (2fm/vital) and our surviving choon was: SILICONE SOUL / right on! (vc records).. Failing to win sympathy were:THE SPACE BROTHERS / everywhere i go (manifesto), MADEMOISELLE / do you love me? (rca) and MIDAS / fire in the sky (mainline), while FOREVER / untitled (+447778035353) came second by 5%.. we did have a "smashing" incident, but since the record was destroyed completely i have no idea what it was.. er.. which is a good thing if you tink about it! Most of the following hour was white-label wierd ness from eorope so i'll get round to playing/listing it again another time..

Photographs of myself will be available at the signings for me to sign for you.. and copies of the album too. er.. to sign.. and stuff.. did i say there will be photographs of me for you to get signed by me? Ah.. here comes my nurse.. Mmmmm.. huggy jacket... oh look!!! My picture on the inside of the jacket!! Excellent.. just let me slip into this little sucker.. ahhh.. nothing like the feeling of a mass-produced 6 x 9 of yourself pressing against your chest with the force of leather straps tightend till they groan!!!

    wow.. some gr8 reactions from the ppl that were sent copies of the album for review.. and some of the tastemakers in europe are bieng VERY kind to me comment-wise.. real newspapers are threatning to review it as an actual album rather then a mix CD or "2 dance hits and a bunch of polyfilla" release,which is nice.. the main thrust seems to be they all feel my personality from the tunes!?!?? wow, i do hope that doesnt work against me as i am VERY unstable personalitywise.. but some probing questions about the scene in general, and a nice shift from "what's the nxt big ting" line of Qs in2 "isn`t it marv how the scene has eaten into national TV/Radio/Press so much!!" i HATE doing interviews!! Really. It`s sad and twisted of me, but i really don't like doing interviews AT ALL.They are sortof like baking for me, a great idea with so much promise, but it always turns out overdone and dry.

    Yep,that PA helped enormously.. and the provision of 2 Stanton 500s to swap for the (nasty) stanton-flathead skip-o-masters.. only had 1 minor skippage incident (during "posse" predictably) where i had to hold the deck in my hands and inch above the concrete slabs below to stop it skipping.. its mad, the crowd looked like the video for house of pain's "jump around" except it was the whole club doing it not just everlast and his mates thru a cropped fish-eye lens to make the frame look busy!! Annnyyyywaaaayyyy. Nice 1 castlebar, and nice 1 'Jacks Management for the best sound i've heard in the _club_ part of the complex.. No sign of Johnny though,pity.

    ==110801

    Just heard PanamaJacks Are installing a meaty PA/nice non-trampoline decks for 2nite and the dude on the insatll is noneother then HAIRY JOHNNY of the court (that was).. excellent!! nice one!! havn't seen that cru since way back when..

    Panama Jacks 2nite in Castlebar after the newly truncated saturday show ill be doing.. Now it`s 2 b 8-10pm saturdays for me, Firen'Squad at 8 to 9, then a solid hour of upfront bizzness,er.. tunage permitting that is.. have you noticed a bit of a drought on the tunage front lately? alot of piddly productions getting thru cos no quality is dealt out this time of year??!! just when ppl need a lift and a break from the horrible crap we get subjected to on holidays, the choons go bland.. Don`t ppl realise we need a constant flow of new and changing ideas 2 keep the intrest up? Having said that, i'm feeling about as creative as the guy who writes the headlines for SPORTING LIFE these days.. Must be the humidity, or maybe the mind-bending chemicals they are putting in the drinking (hah!) water these days..

    Special treat (thanx 2 Zeki of SPINCAM) a 360-degree 2 minute clip of me at creamfields 2001.. you can try it live on the web or download it for your REALPLAYER 8 on the downloads page.. If you don`t have REALPLAYER it's time you did, and if You do You may require a PLUGIN (about 100k) to view the stream properly..Your REALPLAYER should prompt you automaticly before it goes off and downloads the plugin for you, but if it doesn't, download it at the link provided..Basicaly, u use the mouse to PAN around the scene as it plays!! You can looka around as i play.. look at the crowd... backstage.. at me even??!! COOOLEST THING OF THE WEEK!!!! After trying a streamer,You will need a T3 connection to watch it live, best just Download it from the link provided and play the .rm file off your hard-drive.. Yeah it`s another monster download but it`s -=so=- cool.. no shit you'll LOVE it..

    So.. i was sussed by the SMS cru (stabbed me on +353864049400) re: no dex in the studio at this time!! The spoof on the air is they are still in the toadcaster after WITNESS and nobody has got 'round to moving them back into th studio area,well it's actually true.. the bank-holiday messed it all up.. so we _will_ hav dex for the weekend shows thass4sure4sure.. i have been belting out a mix for the last 1/2 hour regardless, from minidisk, but you can hear the diffrence!! well.. _i_ can hear the difference anyway. Having great fun easing into playing mad (not strictly dance/electronic) music again,again - goddamn that BETABAND album is nice! They went on about the last 1 bieng so messy and they were going to get this one "perfect" and i think they nearly did.. the lyrics are still more an abstract use of tuned-voice (annoying at times) but the loose-groove is _very_ under control on this album, it was a let-down on the last one.. So.. did you enjoy the communications crises yesterday? 087 network crippled!!! IrelandOnline Knackered!!! ahhh feeeel the chaoosss.. nice when it all goes wrong innit? Nothing like the August Bankholiday to screw the country up completely! You know what i think? i think the 087 GSM network (the oldest and best on the island) and the IOL servers (ditto) did a spooky one and CLOSED THEMSELVES DOWN in sympathy with the GATEWAY cru's shafting! Think about it... they (the 087 & IOL hardware) would have KNOWN about it for days because they probably carried the bad news between headoffice and the irish office in the first place.. You see?? Machines _can_ feel things.. Er... Or maybe they did it to get us back for having a mass-mallet this weekend past while they chugged away moving millions of emails, porn piccys and dirty SMS messages about for us.. Jealous machines too anyone???

    And so.. i witnessed the wetness.. and august is rapidly becoming the black-hole-lemon month of the year... crap weather,crap angle,god i wish i was something else, like a touring car in brazil, or a park-bench in helsinki... Doing DAVE FANNING's show for august though.. so as soon as they find the decks after the bank-holiday portable behaviour, then i can get a proper angle on the show.. it`s _no_ fun doing it with just cds.. it's ARSE in fact! but hey, join me, every nite mon-thurs from 9-11 on 2FM if u happen 2 b weed/cidering on a nice piece of wasteground or driving somewhere r sitting at home complaining how shit the telly is (and "why do i pay for this shite.." etc..) and aint gettin' no satisfaction! Oh.. a word of warning now, about CUISINE DE FRANCE "nuke" doughnuts and pastries,they gave all of us the runs yesterday,and who can blame them!

    New version of STITCH THAT today.. More focused, but the vox is more buried and the 303 is MUCH nastier.. the track is cursed.. the .SNG file for the sequencer had strangely "eaten" the last file made before it was started and taken it`s name!! Very damn wierd IMHO! Upped some fotoz.. Gallery 5 featuring CreamfieldsIreland2001 Panoramics,new 2001 studio shots and The dead Gun from the firen`squad that got dedded at creamfields,and Gallery 6 Featuring The SessionsTour At the GPO last month.. You may see yourself in them if you steal them and streach them out a bit, and some of the GPO ones in perticular make -=excellent=- desktops thanx to Hilary's excessive use of psychedelic filters on the night!!!!
