Flux and Freaks, Twitter ye not

EAGLE-EYED readers will have noticed that Expletive Undeleted now has its own ‘Twittery-Twattery’ feed (down there on the right) where I talk about all the things I can’t be arsed blogging about, in 140 characters or less.  Come join the party. You will get spammed by PR twats! Yay!

There are also a few new additions to the blogroll – Manchester arts and culture supremo Mancubist, superlative resource for all things clubby / DJing / house music-related, Resident Advisor, and the fairly self-expanatory Easy Listening World.

And while we’re at it, visit History Is Made At Night for more of Transpontine’s fascinating and informative words on the politics of dancing, all around the world, right through the ages. Marvellous and inspiring stuff.

And while we have our dancing shoes on, the ever-generous Freaks are giving away mp3s of two versions of a new song, the groovy and very beautiful Black Shoes, White Socks. All your need to get your ears on these bits of top notch bendy house music is go to the Music For Freaks website and sign your life away.  You probably won’t regret it.

Kev H from the recently re-defunct Flux got in touch to let me know that Hard Night Out, the Professor Green track which samples Tube Disaster by Flux, finally looks like getting a formal release. Head over here to see the vid. I think they might be getting a percentage so let’s make it a hit, eh chaps?

    Kind of sad to see Flux (or members thereof) excited about a track where the lyrics advocate violence and sexism…

    I’m not sure the track advocates those things Nic, I think the lyrics just reflect a reality, even if it is a bit of a laddish reality. And I don’t actually know if they do get a cut, but surely you understand why Kev might be quite pleased and even proud that people are reworking Flux’s stuff decades after it came out?

    And you never know, maybe some of Prof Green’s audience will check out the source material.

    Incidentally, I interviewed the band in Bradford last year (it’s on the site in the interviews bit) and Colin said something along the lines of Hard Night Out being “a bit dodgy” for just those reasons. I really don’t see it myself.

    I suppose we’ll have to agree to disagree but thanks for stopping by.
