WTF are you playing at MUSIQ?

I went to see Musiq Soulchild last Sunday, I used to be somewhat of a fan seeing him for the first time at Southport Weekender in 2000 was one of my teen highlights. But this time round it was all a bit strange. First I got my camera taken off me which pissed me off as every side stepping old timer had their phones and digital devices held up throughout the entire performance, something to do with no SLRs. Whatevs.

Anyways so he comes out on stage starts singing and almost imediately he is full of excuses, technical fault this, soar throat that. Mate if your over the hill then give it up. After performing songs I had never heard for what seemed like a minute he ran off stage and the badly styled all girl band played an instrumental. Then the girl DJ starts dropping some of his most famous tunes, I mean if I wanted to hear them on CD I would of just stayed at home and played them in my bedroom.


On his return, I was more than a bit confused when he pulled out a series of large teddy bears and began throwing them into the crowd. The slightly aging audience went nuts and were pushing and shoving to get their piece of Musiq memorabilia. I mean if it was Valentines then maybe I could understand it but WTF was with the teddy bears???

I think I just need to accept that gone are the days of hot Neo-soul boys wearing over sized knitted caps, nodding heads and smoking in the crowd. The first time round the guy was confidently sipping from his flask of coffee through out his performance not buying his way out of singing by bribing the audience with stuffed animals.

I think I will stick to the CD and my memories in future.


Who remembers staying up with a 2B pencil?...

WORK IT...Moschino on my bitches...21.03.09

Every Man For Himself....this Saturday

For info click HERE


I always have a Kurious 12" in my record box. Kurious faded away into obscurity after the release of his 1st album, which was not commercially successful but is in my favorite albums of the 90's. With lines like "dropping gems like I'm on the run from police" from 'mansion and a yacht' and production from VIC, the Beatnuts and Pete nice it's a classic in my opinion. I always wondered what happened to him since that album. In the late 90's Spine Magazine interviewed him, highlights included him hoovering his apartment freestyling. Priceless. After that he released a 12" on stonegroove in 2001 which was less than up-to par with his previous matierial. Afew guest appearances later takes us upto today which happens to be the release date of Kurious' second album simply titled 'II'. Here's a sampler video...

G Funk

I've been bumping alot of G-Funk recently. I think it needs to get more
love. Alot of stuff never made it to wax due to artists not getting deals blah blah blah,
but alot of west coast stuff did get pushed on tape (think too$hort selling tapes out the back of his car around 86). I always thought Swoop G would take off after hearing his demo on Westwood in the late 90's and an album that was only released on tape. I think he was signed to Death Row but sadly not much came of it. Hear is a track off the album 'Simpin into pimpin'. It's summer in Cali in 97. It's dope.

Lay back kick it and enjoy the ride...

Sing-a-long ladies

Verse One (Kandi):
Every man wants a woman,
Where him and her can just go hang.
Just the two of them along, kick back,
Doing their own thing.
And every man wants a woman,
That can always keep him in the mood.
And I'm that kind of girl,
So this is what I tell my dude.

I tell him to kick off your shoes and relax your feet,
Party on down to the Xscape beat.
Just kick it.
Just kick it, just kick it.
(Repeat x2)

Verse Two (Kandi):
Every man wants a woman,
That can cook him up a good meal.
A woman he can treat like his homie,
And take her out on the Ave. and just chill.
Every man wants a woman,
That ain't good for just laying on her back.
(LaTocha):And I'm that kind of woman,
(Kandi):So before me and my man get in the sack...

Repeat Chorus to fade

My So Called Life

Reminiscing about school girl convo...

Angela: Sometimes someone says something really small and it just fits into this empty place in your heart.
Rayanne: You wanna have sex with him.
Angela: Who?
Rayanne: Who. Jordan. Catalano. Come on, I'm not gonna tell anyone, just admit it.
Angela: I just like how he's always leaning. Against stuff. He leans great.
