keep music fake

I know, I said January was going to be more regular with the updates, but then I start going to gigs six nights in a row and not having time to make mp3s to upload for you, let alone post about them...

So here's a whopping big one to make up for it! The highlight of the last few weeks' gigs was the first of two Jamie Lidell shows, where he enhanced his self-sampling steez with local live musicians (the second show was good too, but a relaxed arvo affair on a bowling green, rather than a dazzling *PERFORMANCE* on a stage). And of course, his album of last year featured the live musician skills of Chilly Gonzales, so in a tenuous link, here's an example of Gonzo mixing pre-recorded music with performance, from a BBC Radio 1 Breezeblock set. Not only does he mostly eschew trendy "dance" musics, but he starts singing and playing along with the cheesefest as the set goes on. This is about 41mb, half an hour. I'd post a setlist, but it ruins the fun a bit. He'll keep you posted, anyway.

Gonzales - Breezeblock mix

Buy:
You can get Gonzales' 'remix' of Jamie's "Multiply" as a ringtone or MP3 from Warp's Bleep store. They've got loads of other Lidell stuff, have a search. Or get the whole Multiply album from Warpmart for a more submerged collabo style. I'll plug Gonzo's own records again here sometime when I do an all-Gonzales post with more MP3s from his 2003 Australian tour...
