  1. Great thread. Not quite cult music, but this is a banger and I think it fits in here: There's a great story behind this record as well. https://www.irishtimes.com/culture/music/donal-dineen-s-sunken-treasure-sister-irene-o-connor-fire-of-god-s-love-1.3050696

    Go Corbyn

    Yeah - they kinda were though. The '17 manifesto pledges were even more popular in some cases. https://www.businessinsider.com/poll-huge-public-support-for-jeremy-corbyns-manifesto-promises-2017-5?r=US&IR=T These numbers are unusually high for economic policy pledges from any party. I would agree that there were serious issues with messaging, and this was highlighted by a large contingent of Labour activists during the campaign, but it seems that based on the available data its fair to say that Labour's policies over the last two election campaigns have been unusually popular. That's not really a huge surprise considering this agenda are more or less in line with moderate social democratic policies in most European countries and only seem radical in the context of the UK's political environment, which is amongst one of the most neo liberal on the planet.

    Go Corbyn

    Its worth noting that Labour were the most popular party with 18-49 year olds. Also, Corbyn's policies are generally very popular in the UK. I haven't got the numbers to hand but I think stuff like nationalisation, wealth tax etc are all in the mid 60s. that was why he did so well in 2017. This time round, brexit, bad messaging, lacklustre campaign, personal failings and/or the longstanding and vociferously ruthless media smear campaign all created the worst case scenario for Corbyn. But the right knows that their policies are unpopular and demography is against them, which is why they depend so much on lies, media bias and dominance, and outright electoral manipulation (coming soon to the UK). We see the exact same strategies and patterns with the GOP. Fundamentally - if they can't win fairly they will ensure that there is no fairness.

  6. Yeah, the method kinda developed organically. Back in the 00's we were doing 6 deck improvised sets with some basic pedal and kaoss pad fx, but we always wanted to go further and the modular kits lets us completely deconstruct things, opening up the possibility to mix a much more diverse set of tunes - we send tracks out individually or together and then feed the processed sound back into the mixer. We've found that an important factor is the live element - this set was more less completely improvised, but to do that you need at least 2 people, ideally someone on the same wavelength.
  7. To state the obvious. This turned out to be a Brexit election. Labour lost big in Leave seats, a consequence of caving to the centre and backing a second referendum. Corbyn's unpopularity also a major factor, partly due to his own faults, and partly due to the unprecedented smear campaign. The policies however continue to poll well in the UK. His moment was 2017. We are now in very dangerous territory. The Tories are promising to reform parliament in favour of the ruling party. During the course of the campaign they've repeatedly threatened media organisations who gave them bad press. Their entire election campaign was based on lies and gaslighting. This is all uncontroversial textbook pre totalitarian stuff. Terrifying if you take into account their lurch to the hard right and adoption of blatantly racist policies. My sincere condolences to all UK bods. Some very dark times ahead.

  9. Aww, thank you. Though as you get more familiar with the music you may be less impressed with our curation!
  10. Best of 2019 next month. Another toughie.
  11. No love for the old reliable?
  12. Ok, here we go - mixcloud link here. Was kind of fun to do, but certainly should've spent more time weighing up the options. Could easily have done five or ten shows like this. Its been the most prolific decade ever for ambient music (by my rough calculations).
  13. I don't think he has, plus he wont let any of his live sets out, the fucker.
  14. My apologies, totally missed them. He is awesome live. Well worth checking if you get a chance.
