So my 900 post! 900 bloody posts ! I timed myself burning a typical 12″ the other night from recording, cleaning and blogging it took about half an hour so that’s 450 hours of graft that have gone into this bloody blog!
So with the wind and rain lashing down outside on this fine June day I thought what would be more appropriate than this relentless, techno beast of a song that name-checks most places in the North along the M62. Rivalling and surpassing, in my opinion, the overplayed “Born Slippy” this was The KLF at their most edgy, no ambient stuff here. Presumably inspired by a ride over the Pennines on the M62 this 2 parter breaks into a synth drenched rendition of “Jerusalem” at the end of the first part, I love the weird and wonderful! Part 2 is more of a techno track with weird breaks and even cut-outs, just like the raves that were happening up and down the M62 at the time.
Did I tell you I have posted 900 times ?
Many thanks to the regulars who spy daily on this blog (about 150) and for those kind souls who can be arsed commenting. I’m now going to wait for 9 comments/requests any-bloody-thing before I continue posting….how long methinks ?
