Devin Flynn's brillianty daft / almost unwatchably psychedelic animation series for Super Deluxe, "Y'all So Stupid",
is now available to watch online in its entirety.
I'm going to see this lot tomorrow, with Lach
I hope i don't regret it, cos it's expensive.
EDIT: the night was fun, even if the band were a bit crap.
I met Gibby and Paul afterwards! I was probably a dork!

The Remix i did for French producer digiki is going to get released properly on his upcoming Remix Record, "Dense Music". The album has a pretty interesting concept - As Antonin says, the notion of a remix record has become pretty stale and predictable, so he commisioned various artists (including Dexpistols , E*Rock and me!) to make almost impossible 'dance' versions of his already awkward, stuttering music. In his own words:
"Its title, a reference to the (failed) concept of recording music without using a beat as a base, was clearly an indication that I had no plans to have the songs remixed in a danceable way. Often (wrongly) perceived as a DJ and having done myself my fair share of remixes in the past, I wanted to present true original material, without appealing to any particular audience."
check Antonin's full liner notes to the record here

I think it was probably to do with kraftwerk being involved, I suspect they have one of those web sheriff agents or something. Anyway, i'll do my best to re-up the mixtape with an altered tracklisting SOMEWHERE ELSE in the next few days. hold tight!
