Great blog on the pissy New Street staircase (update: it’s now closed off. For good…) – http://www.birminghamitsnotshit.co.uk/2011/07/danny-smith-requiem-for-a-piss-stained-short-cut.html

ThisIsTmrw have been at the forefront of FUTURE music in the city for many years now (I remember Lewes Herriot’s posters in The Victoria over 5 years ago and wondering who on earth these promoters were, where they’d come from and who the hell they were going to put on next). Here’s a mix we did for them a while back: http://www.thisistmrw.co.uk/2011/05/27/thisistmrw-mix-12-free-school/

Further to this post, I’ve been watching Freaks & Geeks recently. Read about it here and then buy it. You won’t regret it. The last episode has a brilliantly judged take on the disco movement.

We’re warming up for our EP launch with a DJ set at the awesome Sam Redmore’s Freestyle night. It’s Friday 12th August at The Bull’s Head, Moseley. We’re doing a back-to-back set with Sam. This may be played:
