100th Post!!!!

Sadly with our 100th post I am going to tell you about something that I found disappointing. It also proves a theory of mine that something cool + something cool, sometimes equals something lame.

Tonight I read a tweet from Pharrell Williams saying that if I followed this link I could see N.E.R.D. perform their new song produced by Daft Punk on Letterman. being a fan of both acts I thought surely this is going to be the best thing thats happened to me all day. Wrong! I still hold out hope for the actual track - Maybe the studio version will have a little more Daft Punk magic on it?!

Here are other times that I have been let down by people that I thought I could trust:-

Adidas + Star Wars. Were any of them any good?

Cartoon Allstars to the Rescue - Who ever came up with this needs to calm down. Incase you don't have 27 minutes to see how many of your favorite cartoon characters have been crow bared into this, expect to see Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Garfield, Michelango (TMNT), Winnie-the-Pooh, Muppet Babies, Smurfs, ALF, Alvin, Simon and Theodore, Huey, Duey and Louie and Slimer from Ghostbusters.

UPROCK on Saturday

Chilly Gonzales

Heard this on the radio the other day. The lyrics confused me - Are these guys serious? But like the Pizza Hut and Taco Bell track that Ric posted a while back I liked it. Interesting video too.

Flavor In Ya Ear

I was supposed to put these tracks up after last week's Uprock (it was well busy). I've had a tough week so here they are for the weekend

The Jamie Lidell Tiga Remix is like listening to a 1980's Prince if he owned a laptop. You may have heard the Cee-lo track on the radio - the one I've added is the original version, they can't put this one on before the watershed.

Jamaica used to be Uprock favorites Poney Poney (They made the loudest record i've ever owned).

We played two new Kanye West songs last Saturday. James Severy hated the one featuring Beyonce so much he told me on the night, and again when I bumped into him on the way to work. I have attached the other one to keep him happy.

One for the weekend - Jai Paul

It looks like being a pretty nice weekend in Suffolk, so here's a handpicked tune to soundtrack whatever it is you'll be getting up to over the next couple of days.

BTSTU is one of my songs of the year so far and suggests big things for Jai Paul in the months ahead.

And if you want to hear it played in perfect conditions* then come down to Uprock at the Swan this Saturday night.
