Going into surgery as of 28-04-2021. So I won't be able to reply to anyone with inquiries or any general messages until further notice. And might not bother replying even if the above wasn't even an issue :P Apologies in advance :)

The grumpy, cynical person's motto is one I can definitely relate to: Once Bitten. Twice Bitten (not a 'Bittern') !

Like Tuco Ramirez once said: If you work for a living, why do you kill yourself working? One name is as good as another, not wise to use your own name. You see, in this world there's two kinds of people my friend. Those with loaded guns and those who dig. YOU dig.

Cheese is meant for eating not for making entire music genres out of !.

The following music genres I find very annoying: UK 2 Step Garridge (by the U-Get-Me? Crew. U get me??), Funky (Disco) (Filtered) Cheesy House, Modern Bassline House, Grime, Contemporary R&B, New Jack Swing, Brit-Pop, Whiny vocal pop rock, NewModern Dance-Pop (basically pretty much anything in the UK national pop chart), Dubstep, Bro step, Trap, Bounce, Handbag, cheesy Sasha & co. style Piano House and vocal screamers -for the deluded out there [Sasha is NOT God!]. Scouse House, Chipmunky vocal Hardcore, Donk, Progressive House and Trance, this kitschy so-called Electro House crap (I like proper 1980s Electro!), Raggafied Jungle which encourages loudmouthed toasting and MCing, Euro-Dance trash or anything with autotune involved. So there, I've said it!

Some still ongoing unconfirmed track ides. You are welcome to help :)

If I had the choice, I would've removed the 'my house' vocal chant from this record. But then, the title would also need to change to something more appropriate. I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of that vocal hook (sample?) on this record. I think it's... See full review

Don't Go probably gets 99.9% of the plaudits. Rightly so? Not in my opinion. From day one, I've never really been a big fan. Pop-Breakbeat Piano House-Rave. 99.9% will disagree with me of course.

Headstrong is the one for me. Rawer, simpler, more... See full review

Nick Annies recently replied to a question I asked him regarding the dates of production and recording of the tracks on this album. He said 1988 and 1989. Some of the ideas presented on these tracks are actually before their time for sure.

Did the artists say that or the music journalist writing the article. It might be the case, I have no reason to doubt it if the artists say so. But the notes on the bassline sound far closer to The Cure in my opinion.
