Final notes on the Day of the Dead


Man, if only the Dudley Boyz hadn’t buried Paul Bearer up to his neck in concrete, we could have had the perfect pitchman for June 25th, 2009… As it was, it’d be amiss of me not to say a few more things on those who’ve crapped out in the past 24 hours.

Commenting on Jackson is unnecessary and irrelevant, people with more talent, more knowledge, and more enthusiasm for the subject in hand will be doing this over the next five-to-ten years, and rest assured Jacko will now be replacing Hitler as the topic of choice for Channel 5 documentaries. All I’ll say is a) for boys of my age, attending a primary school fancy dress party as Michael Jackson was pretty much a rite of passage and b) here’s an MP3 section of Dan Greenpeace and DJ Yoda’s 2003 “Essential Mix”, specifically the 23 minute segment that dealt with hip-hop tracks that sample Michael Jackson.

Long-time readers of IchLugeBullets will be more than familiar with a cheeky jovial chappy by the name of Claude Carpentiere.

We kinda slacked on talking about Double C for a while though, after you’ve given someone a roasting not seen since the days Eli Porter put Envy on the grill, your interest in them tends to wain.

This is starting to annoy me now. I’m getting distracted. For the past six months, has been your number one internet resource for the kind of indepth and detailed music reviews and opinions you’ve not seen since the triumphant three-issue run of X-Ray Magazine. I mean, I’ve been named “solo blog of the year” by some Croatians. Fun Croatian fact: Darijo Srna has a tattoo of a deer playing football on his thigh, and a brother with Down’s Syndyome.

But over the past few weeks, what with a Christmas malaise, we’d been a bit low on content. And then Claude Carpentieri happened. Read more…

Sorry mate. My brother used to try to sing it when it was out (he was a toddler), he died in 2003. Nothing so evocative as throwaway pop songs eh! Read more…

One of the most commonly asked questions amongst me and fellow failed music hacks who keep a piece of shit blog with 200 readers a day is: why The Guardian? Why are you wasting the bandwith of WordPress, Blogspot and the hosting company of the message board you spend five hours a day on by pissing and moaning about Rosie Swash/Tony Naylor/that one racist broad who edits Rwd?
