Off to Canada this weekend to play two 3-Way Mix shows with Cheeba and Moneyshot in Montreal and Ottawa. Friday will see a return to the SAT in Montreal where I did my dome shows in 2012 and on Saturday we’re at Ritual in Ottawa with promoter Shawn Scallen who was the first person to put Ninja Tune on in that city back in 1996!.
Here’s a photo he took of PC and I from that night and also a short interview I did last week for Apt 613. We’re beginning to upgrade the video side of the mix now and I’ve been editing suitable footage all week for my section which should debut this weekend if I can get it all to synch properly.

Message Andy Votel or Doug Shipton to reserve a copy, 100 track mix of Soviet releases on the Melodia label. Also soon available in tape form, the Z ‘Visions Of Dune’ album I recently blogged about – exclusively from Finder’s Keepers’ site.

Weirdly another thing with ‘Future Shock’ as a title, must be something in the air – although my mix title takes from both 2000ad and an early 70′s documentary. But anyway, I’ve been meaning to post this for ages but got sidetracked. Someone is finally attempting to tell the story of 2000ad in proper documentary form and they’re really going all out to do it.
So far I think they’ve spoken to anyone and everyone who’s ever been within walking distance of the comic in the last 37 years. Check the trailer above, read the production blog, it will be screening at Beyond Fest and Fantastic Fest in the US in the coming months but there’s no news of a UK premiere yet.

Sorry for the lack of recent updates, really juggling a lot of different plates at the moment with gigs, video edits and artwork. Trying to fit music and life into the mix is proving difficult and all my web-time at the moment is being swallowed in a gargantuan update of this site which is over 5 years old now and is showing it’s age.
Until then here’s a treat uploaded by Bundy K Brown, it’s his first pass demo of the track we collaborated on that opened ‘Kaleidoscope’ back in 2000. We took the stems of this version and broke it all up and added to my version to make the one you hear on the LP today. There’s some interesting stuff going on in there as he varies the tempo here and there by a couple of bpm to get a live feel for it (it’s all samples). Check out his Soundcloud as he’s uploading lots of archive stuff at the moment.
Anyway, enjoy – that’s also any early idea for the LP cover in the upload. There’s lots of stuff in the works at the moment that I can share soon with several things coming to a head hopefully and then the blog can become a bit more regular again.
