two main listens today - DJ Irene and Ellen Allien - who would not be very entertaining in a fight. allien's 'berlinette' is catching me, mostly for the track 'trash scapes' with the repetition of 'the past is a night train, to unknown trash scapes' is jangled, mutated and lovely without being miserable. i wish it would develop more, but its four minutes are fine.

unexpected pleasure - my friend andy, aka vertebrae, played a show in youngstown at the only decent club, the nyabinghi. of course, only like eight people were in the audience to hear his autechre meets the notwist, one man with an accordian, a laptop and a dream show but hey, what can ya do?
