Radio Dept - Pet Grief

From Radio Dept's label.

The Radio Depts first album, »Lesser matters« was called "a minor classic" by NME and voted one of the 10 best albums of the year in the same magazine. Now the very much anticipated follow up »Pet grief« is finally here. You'll hear from the very first chord that you're listening to The Radio Dept......

"Whoa i don't agree wit the rest so I'll take over now"

Yep! It is top! A sort of indie-pop pet shop boys record. Nostalgic and sad, in a "I want to be sad" way. There are elements of the more lovley New Order tracks (Regret etc). And it also contains my single of the year (Worst Taste in Music). It really is a decent record. Perfect for train journeys or remembering that mistake you made in life gone by.

Space sounds and Ital dance origins ahoy!

To demystify a myth is cool! So here goes.

In 2004 Aphex Twins Rephlex released an album by Black Devil called Disco Club, a re-issue of a long lost supposedly italo-disco classic from 1978. Given its absurdly modern sound many doubted its authenticity, some even suggesting that it was a collaboration between Richard James and Luke Vibert.

The Real Story is stranger still. Although credited to Joachim Sherylee and Junior Claristidge with executive production by Jacky Giordano,(who were library writers apparently)the album is actually the work of obscure French producer Bernard Fevre known only for his incredibly rare electronic masterpiece The Strange World of Bernard Fevre and the even rarer Earthmessage, as sampled by the Chemical Brothers on Got Glint? For Their Surrender album.

here is a link to a Bernard Fevre collection.

He was a talented chap wasn't he?

So much so that the lovely DFA have agreed (And done) production of some of his unmastered tracks. Go to hype machine and get "Springfield" (If it's still there. If not drop me a line.

BUY_ Grizzly Bear- Yellow Road.

WHY?_You'll see.
