Playlist 11.09.05 (9:41 pm)

Welcome to the September 11 edition of Utility Fog - that's 11/9 for all the misguided Americans in the world.
A passing nod to the significance of this date with a track (or maybe two) from an album called The Fire This Time, part journalistic investigation of US foreign policy with respect to Iraq, and part electronica compilation. Also tonight, a special on the brothers D & R Funcken aka Funckarma, who are playing in Sydney on the 25th of September, two weeks time - and, tragically, I will be away... [I'll be playing a couple more tracks from the guys next week, still in the lead-up to their visit, as I didn't manage to fit in enough to make it a "special".]
A few other flashbacks as there's not a great deal of new music to play you this week, but plenty of recent offerings too.

Aphex Twin - Come To Daddy (Black Lung remix) [Hidden Art]
Funckarma - Lolala [dub]
Little Aida - Laika [little rat records (self-released)]
Plaid - "Face Me" (hidden track on Rest Proof Clockwork CD) feat. Mara Carlyle [Warp Records] {Bit of an obscure one, this - and it's the original version of the Mara track that follows! Beautiful stuff.]
Mara Carlyle - It's Time [Accidental]
Gauche - When Clouds Collide [Invada]
AOKI takamasa + Tujiko Noriko - Doki Doki Last Night [Fat Cat]
Giardini di Mirò - Last Night in Bairs (remixed by The Sea with help from their friends The Boats) [2.nd rec]
Pia Fraus - Mooie Island (Hood remix) [Vinyl Junkie Recordings]
Khonnor - An Ape Is Loose [Type/Speak & Spell]
Populous - The Dixie Saga [Morr Music]
Matmos - The West [Deluxe] {"The sky is always the hardest part"... Ah, I'd forgotten how great the beat is that drops after that sample. Glad I played the whole track now - yes, all 21 minutes!}
Nobody with Prefuse 73 - Tori Oshi [Plug Research]
ii - beofre [Steady Cam]
The Rectifiers - Levy (self remix) [Sensory Projects]
Third Eye Foundation - What is it with you [Domino]

Utility Fog at the MCA (9:20 pm)

Oops! My bad. I conveniently forgot on Sunday to mention on-air OR in the playlist/mailout that this very Saturday I will be DJing at the Museum of Contemporary Art for FBi!
has practically no useful info, but anyway, it's there!

Venue: Museum of Contemporary Art, down near Circular Quay, you know the place
Time: 2pm-3pm, Saturday 10th of September
Price: $0.00

Come and enjoy the Primavera artists' work, listen to some Utility Fog tunes and say Hi. It should be a nice environment and different from my usual DJing experience, in some dimly lit venue late at night... Maybe that'll draw some of you out - oh, and did I mention it's FREE!
