Playlist 23.11.03 (3:22 pm)

We had Laurence and Adrian from Triosk in tonight to chat about their new album (by "Triosk meets Jan Jelinek") 1 + 3 + 1 on ~scape, as well as a couple of gigs they have coming up: Next Sunday the 30th at the Hopetoun Hotel, and then Tuesday the 2nd of December, launching the album at Jazzgroove, at the Excelsior Hotel, Surry Hills 8pm-12pm, for a bargain $5.
Started with some classic Serge Gainsbourg, beautifully mixed into Cinematic Orchestra by an Adelaide artist championed by this show... Then more Gainsbourg, juxtaposed by a song by the incredible Pop Will Eat Itself, in their time the greatest band on earth (big words, eh?!) - their song poaches wholesale the bassline from the Gainsbourg album, and a fab bassline it is too; also sampled by Portishead in their remix of Massive Attack's "Karmacoma"... Lots more goodies strewn throughout the show.
Next week I'll be in Queenscliff and Melbourne with FourPlay, so I'll leave you in the capable hands of Angela and Serena for one week.

Playlist 16.11.03 (6:12 pm)

Lots of great new stuff this week. Started out with a brilliant collaboration between Nick Cave and Talk Talk producer Tim Friese-Greene; a few tunes from Red Snapper, who came to our attention on the Warp label pioneering the whole live groove thing with guitar, double bass and drums, and whose new remix album marks their break-up... Then plenty of what we here @ Utility Fog like to call postfolkrocktronica (including all 23:16 of Four Tet's "live version" of "As Serious As Your Life" - an insane live remix), some more new Venetian Snares and so it goes...

Playlist 09.11.03 (2:37 pm)

A very electronic Utility Fog tonight. A bit of post-folk-rock-tronica later on, but everything from hip-hop to breakcore to classic and current idm. A bit of a focus on Venetian Snares' new masterpiece on Planet µ, The Chocolate Wheelchair Album (featuring the stunning 7/8 ragga jungle of Hand Throw), plus plenty of DSP-fuckups of pop songs and a smattering of the works of Mr Mike Paradinas aka µ-Ziq, the influential founder of the Planet µ empire and perhaps the best of the old guard of drill'n'bass pioneers.

As promised, the show opened with Elliott Smith's live cover of Nico's cover of Jackson Browne's "These Days"... A number of other folksy pieces followed, and then we had a half-hour interview with Danny Jumpertz, who does signal processing and production with Melbourne band Plankton, but has recently moved back to Sydney where he runs the excellent label Feral Media.
