Rough Luck

Jimmy Stewart all psyched out in Vertigo

Well, I guess it's been a rough couple of years. So many legendary figures have passed away in recent memory that they'd come to dominate the ranks of the monthly “hall of fame” entries, bumping a whole lot of planned featured features aside in the interim. Of course, that's shown no sign of abating in recent months, with everyone from Biz Markie and Kelli Hand to Mark Hollis and ZZ Top’s Dusty Hill shuffling off this mortal coil, not to mention figures like Jon Hassell, Ghédalia Tazartés, and the great Lee "Scratch" Perry. Those figures will all have their day in due course, but I've decided to bring things back home to the loosely-themed monthly format, rolling each of them out in the coming months in their own like-minded settings. This month's will certainly be something of a surprise...

In the meantime, it's late night in the Heights, lamplight and the speakers kicking out some Stahlwerksynfonie, lost in a soundclash of NDW and the Maffia, Underworld’s “Twenty Three Blue” flaming out into techno Humanoid Earthbeat ISDN and the whole Aztek universe out west, “Galaxies” and the “Red Planet” (“I can see the starry expanse”), “A Spacecraft Lands On The Dark Side Of An Outer Moon” lost in waves of “Vertigo”. That '96 flavor... “Rough Luck”, some might say. Sessions: melting the machines, reroute the future through Wrinkles In Time, reel to reel loop back through the rugged architecture of dub into the eternal here and now, rhythms flowing through the corridors of time.
