Stay Down is one of my fav all time albums. I prefer the Japanese edition with "Gay Spunk" put in the middle of the tracklist.

Stay Down and Tiny Reminders are beast fuck brilliant. Juicy treat for the braindance epicentre of you mind. Lap it up like a coyote that just found a cool water spring deep in the desert. 
 

I was a little bit disappointed that Two Lone Swordsmen were ignored by the Warp30 NTS broadcast also all their records could do with a remaster/repress by Warp. Yet nothing.

Ive been lucky enough to cross paths with Weatherall several times and i must say he seems to be a very lovely bloke. One of my anecdotes about him involves a young scenester girl who was all over him only to be put in her place with a dry "errr sorry love you're young enough to my daughter" .. another involves his, or Keith's, girlfriend seeking me out and giving me the vinyl of "tiny reminders" for being the most spangled in the club after they played. For me he is the logical successor to Peel both in his eclectic knowledge and down to earth charm. I highly recommend "musics not for everyone" if people haven't heard it, the dapper chap at his best IMO

I would also like to bump into him. Definitely the kind of chap I know I would get on with. I watched the extended bbc documentary about the making of Screamadelica, I think probably for the anniversary. His quote on taking ecstasy has always stuck me, something like

’E is a tricky drug, one minute I was drinking Special Brew and listening to Throbbing Gristle, then after discovering ecstasy I was drinking black currant squash and dancing to ........(can’t remember name of gay band)....So I knew I was in very dodgy territory’

Something like that anyway,  the way he says it with a glint in his eye and a cheeky laugh is just brilliant.

Hell yeah. I was all over Stay Down when it came out, especially "No Red Stopping", I rinsed that track to death. Between 1998 and 2001, they were definitely a force to be reckoned with. Not that the stuff before or after that was bad, but their releases from that period were just quintessential, timeless and influential for their peers in a very special way.
