The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu – It’s Grim Up North (12″)

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 ?

  1. djjedredy… Happy 900th post! I don’t stop in every day… but, yeah most days I do. Thanks for everything you do.

  2. so i’m number 3, nobody remembers the 3rd over the line….
    huge thanks anyway! i’m almost daily, and i like what i see. (still would love those early cab’s reposted though!)
    keep up the good work!

      1. you had a bunch of cab posts back in 2011, early 2012 – I haven’t checked back now but at the time you re-upped the Yello posts I tried them and I think none worked anymore. All those would be ace πŸ™‚

  3. happy 900th. Keep it up. More dance music please

    Yeah, each post does take a long time. I allow 40 mins for mine, which at 5.5k posts equates to over three and a half months in the last 7 years

  4. Good track this one noticed you got another chrsitian up as well i will be grabbing that in advance great track that one

  5. Awesome choice of post, thanks! And thank-you in general for what you provide here (yes, I’m one of those who very very rarely adds a comment… sorry!)

  6. here’s another post just because. thanks for all the great tunes (and some of the ropey ones too πŸ˜‰

  7. I’d like to add my comment too and thank you again for all the work you’ve done and still doing (especially for your very kind reposts of earlier links – not many people bother with it!). I feel very lucky to have found your blog and may you please continue for a long time! All the best to you!

  8. To celebrate the 2 year, 7 month, 2 fortnight and 1 day anniversary of your 900th post, could you possibly re-up it?

    And I’m learning to be good. One request at a time. πŸ™‚

      1. For a second there my depression / anxiety radar went into overdrive at the word “pedantic”, but re-reading my request I’m feeling much better. Thanks for the re-up!
