Magic Daddy and The Truffle Club

Can't remember which one helped Twitch from Optimo remix Sons and Daughters on the recent remix 12" that Domino put out, but these guys are good. It's all glitchy weird electro stuff. I'm quite enjoying Shrig by the Truffle Club. Anyway, this 12" is out on Monday i think? You can buy it from Boomkat if you want? Check out the snippets over at the North South Divide website. Oh, this is out on Stuff Records.

Polish Film Posters

Apparently they used to have to make their own posters for famous films because of government restrictions in Poland. There was some great surreal artwork. Which you can check out at this website. Thanks to Momatt for pointing this out to me.

BBC Hip Hop Documentary from 1984

You Tube certainly is a fountain of knowledge. I recently discovered this old documentary from 1984 about hip hop. Not watched it all yet, but so far Afrika Bambataa and Malcolm McLaren have been on it.

Beastie Boys and Run DMC Interview from the 80s

Youtube has some interesting stuff on it. I found this Beastie Boys and Run DMC interview after some violence had occurred at a show in LA in the 80s. It's pretty funny. It starts off all serious and they make their points well and then it just ends up a funny little interview.
