Yes that's correct. Ken Downie on his own after "Music for Adverts".

"Memphis" is missing too. A great collection - but you're right, "Sun is Shining" an especially odd omission. Perhaps there is a reason?

Totally agree. This was a missed opportunity. Though FYI "No UFOs" is available on the Network "emotionselectric" release.
Juice Box
posted a review of Juice Box. 3 months ago
Juice Box is up there with Reinforced and Suburban Base as one of truly definitive Hardcore and Jungle labels. Up until 1995 the label could do no wrong. And it's almost all the output of one "guy"! Awe-inspiring.

Tremendously underrated Hillbilly Minimalism. Flynt deserves a much higher profile.

I can't find this download. Is there a link one can purchase these files anywhere. Vinyl is nice (especially if you buy the arguments about it sounding better - which I'm not sure I do...) but with a piece like this going digital you have (a) No... See full review

Totally infuriating. The entry even has a release date of February appended and "Pst" has a release date of August and it STILL puts them the wrong way around. It must be in alphabetical order - which is moronic.

If you are keen to get your hands on some Tom & Jerry at a reasonable price can I recommend the Drum & Bass Selection 2 & 3 releases and also Ultrasound's "This Is Jungle" compilations? That will give you "Air Freshener" and the two best mixes of... See full review

My copy, which I bought in 2002, is also a terrible pressing. I am hoping that the CD which I have just shelled out on is an improvement. I would not be surprised if it was much better. At this point in time vinyl was not as well handled as it is... See full review

Augustus Pablo - King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown

It's easy to underestimate this album because there is so much space - so much sheer emptiness. It's how that emptiness is sculpted which makes it so special. I have hundreds of dub LPs, no exaggeration, but more and more coming around to the idea of... See full review

This EP was hugely important to me too.

Reynolds loved these tracks! Like an eldritch Happy Hardcore he said. I sent him a tape of all these early Black Dog releases in 1996 and they are all consequently listed in the first discography for "Energy... See full review

posted a review of Joe Meek - I Hear A New World. An Outerspace Music Fantasy By Joe Meek (The Pioneers Of Electronic Music). about 1 year ago
An extremely strange release. A truly odd idea to package a bunch of BBC and early Avant-garde recordings together with a Joe Meek reissue. But it is (a) cheap (b) full of fantastic music and, if you squint, logical-enough.
