“What about my dinner now though, ‘ave I gotta go ‘ungry ‘ave I?”

Cheers Joey for sending this, under the banner, “Welsh People are idiots”. It could happen to anyone, bumface!

On a serious note, this is purported to be a genuine compiant recording, but I can’t help but smell the whiff of GLC.

Hello. I have reviewed Gonzales‘ new album, Soft Power, for The Quietus.

Sample text:

This is Gonzales’ tribute to great and beautiful soft rock records of the seventies and eighties. You know. That shit you’re supposed to call a “guilty pleasure” because you’re a fuckwit whose musical taste is dictated by joyless broadsheet hacks, soulless dried husks of former white people who can’t enjoy Bon Jovi records without doing it ironically. Gonzales’ music shits down the throats of these Nazis. It always did. It is one of his superpowers.

Read the rest! Then look around. They got Swells! Brett Anderson was just in their office too. Luke saus he was looking “fucking cool actually.” He’s alright that Anderson. One time I gave him a bad review at a festival and he said it was funny and didn’t cry like certain big girls’ blouses.

So, I heard that Gonz tune last night, and I got all excited, and spent all day making a remix of it. I had so much fun! It was almost perverse how much fun I had. It’s a vocal and musical remix. I spent ages on it, the drums are very intricate and the raps are ace. You can listen to it NOW!

Download it in 190kbps here, and at 320 here.

In other news, I got a really nice stereo for the kitchen, a fishbowl, and a proper architect’s drawing board, all off of Freecycle! I’ve wanted a drawing board all my life! I can make comics properly now! It is so sweet! Weird thing is it was, like, 100 meters away from me, in a warehouse by my local corner shop. Thank you people, for the stuff. Our kitchen is a nice place to be in now, and I can’t wait to get my fishes!

By the way, that’s me and Gonz in 2004. You can’t tell from our awesome composure, but we’d just smoked two spliffs and spent a good two hours or so talking about The Wu. Good times!
