So please keep writing in. Later, Tom lH. Thank you for your 1 support and appreciation. So much anger as we wallow in the misery in all that we do wrong. And this is only yet half that must be achieved.
And with that we have over-, come the fear that comes with facing thfe truth, for we are all conscious. And our anger thrives off the pain which society deals to us. We all bear the burden of being conscious. And it comes to mind whether or not man is capable of coexisting within the web of life?
Is man just a bastard? And society thrives off the fundamental ideas of Machiavelli; one of ourfounding fathers of war is natural and the poison of capitalism.
But man is only what he creates himself as. And in different cultures that are now being crushed under the fist of capitalism we are able to realize - hey, humankind can do it all right. These include that of the Aborigines from Australia who have been in existence for at least 40, years longer that any other known culture still in existence.
And as a species, being Homo Sapi- ens now known as homo industrias , we share the same interests as any specie; to live. Incorporated into this is the necessary connections which must be formulated for a sustainable culture. These connections are based on the earth, ourselves and others. The sense of being human is derived from how we view ourselves, which means our function of being here. This results it each culture having its own individualistic sense of belonging.
For the Aborigines, existence is based on being an integrated part of nature. While in our own capitalist culture, being human is to conquer. To carry this out a culture needs a world view in which to abide by. A world view is a decisive means in which a culture is conscious. As in the Aboriginal culture, there is an understanding of the pace of the organisms they are dependent upon.
Their consciousness of life is struc- tured into the shape of a circle in many degrees. First off, the existence of life has no set creation period, other than it has seem- ingly always existed and it will continue to exist.
Their deities are in the form of animals which once were on the earth and created all of the landscape during the period of dreamtime. Therefore all natural structures are sacred because they were created by the deities. Because these deities were in the shape of native animals, the animals themselves are sacred for being their re- minders.
The Ab- original purpose in life is to coexist and be a part of the circle of life which relies on all other life. Their culture relies on being es- sential and connected to all of life. The lack of respect for growing,! This is where we stand. And I live in a I culture where connections to the earth is I nonessential, connections to divinity nos- 1 talgic, and connections to each other to be I soft hearted.
For without all of these con-1 nections, there is no essential feature to I the earth, ourselves or anyone else. But no one will regret I it, for it is our so called fate.
We are merely a strand in it. I And! Because I know why I people are starving and why they will con- 1 tinue to starve under the capitalist mes- 1 siah, and I know why there are homeless I people and why they will continue to exist!
But I most importantly I know that humans are I capable of connecting with the earth and all 1 of its bounty which makes it a living organ- 1 ism. I know that the concept of humans I being inherently evil and bellicose are! But I ache in I despair to think that it should take an atroc- 1 ity for this to be conceptualized by ourl society as a whole. I I have always felt internalized on I this matter since I can recall my childhood where I grew up in the forests and swamps I of southern Jersey with only four neigh- 1 bors.
As a child, I had a pretense of why 1 1 and everyone else were meant to be here. I And in my minds eye I recall visualizing! I was in a forest! I saw a deer which let me stand close I enough to stroke it. If there was a god — 1 1 had thought that he put us here to watch his 1 precious blue planet filled with life.
I had felt I privileged to dream that we were here to I mutually care for this lucious planet. For every- 1 one relies on heaven as their savior — but 1 1 know neither heaven or hell personally, fori neither have made me any promises. Andl al! I believe I owe it to Mother Earth, to myl brothers and sisters and to myself to enjoy I and preserve all of life. What gives us the I willingness to wait for an unknown place! And I ache!
But disparity cannot I set me bitter against those who commit! I do and I will continue to propagate change by what- ever means I can perform on an in- dividual basis. I realize that [this may all sound a bit soft and all, but fuck — where is the vision, where are our J goals, what are we trying to obtain, and Iwhat makes it worth obtaining? If we are [striving for something— -there must be a [common focus.
Perhaps I do not hear enough of that. PS The, kiwi kids are choice! That one true person you can spend [the rest of your life with. First a friendship, [a budding relationship, and as I see it, everyone I know in a relationship now and in the past has gone through this phase all loss of individuality whatsoever!
The longer in relationships the quicker the brain slowly [slides out their ass and into a gelatin pile of what they used to be; everything, person- ality, beliefs, social interactions, friends or [the lack of, since most ditch their friends to spend more time with their significant oth- ers How bland!
But you know life is so much easier with the opposite sex around. Seclusion is another [must for this job, drop everything so that [you can find more time to spoon with each [other, cuddling, nothing gets better than [that. Hell ya there is. This hap- pens so much around me, and you can only tell people that what their doing is [ fucked up so many times.
Day [dreaming about your sig. That needs your full attention! But wait here comes that cute person headed this way. A lot of people that I know have had great relationships, awesome ones. The worst part of it all is that they come running back to you, arms open waiting to be friends again, even after all that pain and stress they threw upon you.
Have f uni Jeff M. But I think its more than just the letters. But they are ok. What do you think of the dirty crushes? I think it ridiculous. Some crusties sniff theirfriends and determine by their odor whether they are real crusties.
The funny thing about most of the crusties is that they are rich. Not filthy rich, but they have homes. Why would you want to smell? What about the kids who think they are cool cuz go to squats, but in fact have homes of there own.
Right Cagadas? That is despicable. Props really need to be sent out to this band called Operation: Cliff Clavin. Even more, a friend of mine was putting out a compilation, so[ they not only sent him early, out of print 7"s, [ but sent all the new stuff they had.
This was the first] Crack release in years, and some unin- formed drivel by the likes of Steve does! That is the point of reviews, no? Now I agree, their new material is crap. A year or so ago one of you r review- 1 ers went on about the Cockney Rejects] being Chelsea fans. That inaccuracy is] grounds for murder in some parts of the] world. If punk stands against media lies] and inaccuracies, maybe you should too.
PoorJ reviews as such only make MRR appear] ignorant. I More blood has been shed in the name of lgod and Christianity than all other corp. I started getting really into the music land then last April I went to my first show. I want to change it.
I want people to know what punk rock really is. But how? How do I make a bunch of suburban high school kids see what they are missing? Actually, they have two guitar players in the band, both named Ben, but only one of them is a cop. Ringwurm is a band on my record label.
So I started calling around, asking about 15 different people who were at that show if they saw Ben kicking anybody. I heard that from a lot of people. They should kick him out. Anyway, what hap- pened is that, luckily, there was a video of the show. Ben is in the video the entire time. The band, except forthe drummer and singer, had their back to the crowd because there was a wall of kids falling into them no stage and they were trying to play. At one point about four kids fell into Ben and it knocked him forward into his amp.
In a brief moment of frustration he kicked backwards. He was just trying to clear some space for him to stand in. Still, what if there was no video? The weirdest thing tol me was how gullible everybody was.
People thoroughly believed it. The whole! These were not I young little crusty punks making accusa-l tions, but grown, adult, mature punk rock-1 ers, much like Felix, who believed the lies!
That was all the proof they needed.! You can draw your own parallels to this! This whole Ben, the punk rock cop, I situation reminds me of when I was a l substitute high school teacher.
I made sure I my own ass was covered, but otherwise a student could get away with whatever they I wanted to in my class or even leave the! Some I of these kids attended punk shows at myl house where they would get drunk and do! I first met Mikee, of the band Yourl Mother, as his substitute science teacher. For the most part I had an excellent rela- tionship with most of the students. Regret- 1 tably , I only had sex with one of them. I was I one of the most requested subs among the I kids.
Unfortunately, some kids were con- 1 vinced that all teachers were disciplinar- 1 ians on a power trip. They never realized! They thought I actually gave al shit if they were going to turn in their home I work. Some tried to offend me by using! Some even thought their punkl rock attire was offensive to me. Anyway,] my point is that teaching was just a job. He has full! He plays in al punk band. He was a member of the San I Jose scene years before he ever became! His best friend is a heavy pot smoker.
He wants to pose I nude in The Probe. He quit his previous! Typical cop? Maybe, but I really fucking doubt it. I was a huge fan of Ringwurm be- 1 fore Ben became a cop. When Joe, the! I love the guy. He just wants to shoot guns I and drive fast. When the midnight hour struck and the function ended, there was great reluctance in leaving.

PARKS In these days of changing tastes and customs and of complete reversals of the accepted order of things park managers must keep abreast of the times if they would show a profit at the end of each season.
In these days of bands, orchestras, phonographs, organs, self-playing musical instruments and radios one cannot ignore the demand for popular music.
The country as a whole has been gradually educated to a new musical standard. Today music is the language of the universe, a language everyone understands and loves. We prefer to call it modern dance music. In its place has come a much superior grade of music. The musical gymnastics, the banging together of cocoa shells, the rapping of tin pans, the tinkling of cow bells, the crashing of cymbals and the many other tricks — all reminiscent of the blacksmith shop and the boiler factory — have been abandoned in favor of music that is more truly music, more truly harmonics, more truly instrumental than that old form which depended on novel effects for its results.
Music can be used to excellent advantage in the dance hall, the dining room, the band stand, the swimming pool, in the picnic grove … But it must be the kind of music your patrons like to listen to. Most dance halls pay a very nice dividend on the investment involved, besides being a very popular spot in the park.
Great has been the demand for such bands as those furnished by Paul Whiteman, Vincent. When the OM5 returned to NYC in late August , they expected to begin their planned engagement for the fall season at the Rosemont Ballroom in Brooklyn, on Friday, August 28, ; apparently the row between the band and the Rosemont over the February radio broadcast had been laid aside. But things went not as planned for the OM5. We went over so well the Memphis Five had to find other work, because we stayed there until February The Billboard issue of March 27, , p.
So, in the meantime, the OM5 had to look out for other job opportunities. Nathan Horowitz, formerly interested in the Silver Slipper, is the sponsor of the new cafe. They opened Sunday of this week for a fortnight [Sept.
He was a catcher for the Newark team of the International League. It was against the wishes of his family that he finally decided to exploit his musical ability. Baltimore Evening Sun, October 30, , p. Just into their stay at the Kit-Cat Club, on September 17, the group played a session at Victor, and for the first time the band was recorded by the new electrical process. Variety, Variety, September 09, , p.
Their entire routine consists of red hot numbers, all well handled and they grew in favor with the audience as their turn progressed. Without ostentation, they begin their work and keep seated throughout, sticking to their chores and leaving the bunk flashy stuff to those who need it for a success.
Their playing in this case was sufficient to send them away solid. For a setting, Jere De Rosa had a silk house drape brilliantly lighted with purple predominating. As a picture house proposition the size of their organization and the little space that they require fits them for almost any theatre.
Napoleon lives at 28 Harman St. Brooklyn Daily Eagle, September 27, , p. Napoleon was co-founder of the original Memphis Five and still uses that record name on the disks. In time, the marriage was annulled.

The number is a Memphis Five standard, the composers being Phil Napoleon and Frank Signorelli, the heads of the jazz quintet. Clarion-Ledger, Jackson, Miss. Apparently the new Kit-Cat Club was a short-lived venture, as it already closed after just three weeks.

Despite the minimum. The following review, done two weeks before the OM5 would start their engagement there, affords us an intimate glimpse how dance ballrooms were operated during those times: Variety, January 27, , p. As already mentioned, Variety February 03, , p. These syncopators have been big favorites at the Rosemont at their previous engagement, and the return date was given them by popular demand.
The combination had been touring the larger picture houses and ballrooms with a marked degree of success. Its location atop the Woolworth stores at Fulton and Nevins streets makes it ideally accessible to all sections of the borough, either by trolley, elevated or subway.
Many nearby theatres provide additional drawing power. The ballroom is located one flight up. It has its own entrance and lobby. Its space is by , with 90 by devoted to dancing space and the remainder for aisle space and lounging purposes. It has a soft drink bar and usual checking concessions with a flat charge of 10 cents for the latter. It is operated by Nathan Faggen and Sons. John J. Faggen and Joseph Rickman are managers. The entrance is attractive and the ballroom more so with futuristic decorations prevailing, also the subdued lighting effects with the brighter lighting spotted on the dance floor proper.
Two bands alternate for dance music. The latter contributes for foxtrots and one-steps. Each plays three numbers and alternate. The dances last about four minutes. According to Mr. Rickman, this ballroom has a majority of waltz fans which has prompted the holding of waltz contests at the Sunday matinee sessions, when cups are awarded to the winning couples. From Tuesday to Friday a cent admission entitles bearer to three dances with additional. Wilton, Inc. Wilton ranks among the first two agents on the big time in numbers of acts handled, if not actually being the first.
Some competing agents say he is. Variety, December 31, , p. Alf T. Wilton has walked out on the Keith-Albee office! Wilton is the only one with nerve, enterprise or temerity sufficient to deliberately walk out, to open up his own independent agency, booking anything anywhere. They confess that Wilton pioneering himself into the open amusement mart at just this time is a smart maneuver, for the publicity he will gain from it.
Twelve hostesses dance with the unaccompanied males, when regular dance tickets are supplemented with hostess tickets, which costs 10 cents each additional. The girls are in charge of a supervising hostess, a matronly woman who introduces them to prospective partners.
This is much in contrast to policies obtaining elsewhere when competition among the girls direct becomes an annoyance. On Saturdays, Sundays and holiday nights, the scale is tilted up to 85 cents. A dozen or more paneled pillars are throughout the foyer. The ballroom proper and lounge have an abundance of varicolored hand-painted silk shades with the decorative scheme running mostly to silhouettes.
The bands are both ideal dance combinations and both exceptionally popular with this clientele. The symphonic combination plays regularly in subdued tempo while the jazz outfit cuts loose at all times with hot and noisesome jazz. Rosemont is now in its fifth season. Like any new enterprise, its first two years were tough, but it has been later put over and is now considered the best appointed ballroom in Kings County.
Engagements of this mid-late April road tour have eluded me, but in early May, , the band was back at the Cinderella Ballroom in NYC, if the information of the advertisement reproduced below is not false; the same ad places the OM5 in Albany, NY, on May Since that fateful evening on Febr.
The big groups won. It was J. The Original Georgia Five, Inc. Especially is it evident in New York. But there are limitations even in a great city like New York. And when outside orchestras, whose leaders see a prospect of vast fortunes to be gained in the big city, seek bookings here, and cut their prices below the level which has been considered a living price for orchestras in New York, merely for the purpose of getting a foothold, it is going too far for the good of the business.
It is estimated that there are no fewer than New York bands at present playing in Florida, Havana and other winter resorts. At the moment there is a considerably greater number of bands idle in New York than there has been for some time past, so it is expected that out-of-town engagements will be the only salvation of the white-flanneled musicians when they turn their sunburnt faces northward.
The loss of 25 feet of property on each side of Surf Avenue and a similar amount on the Bowery necessitated the tear down of businesses. The narrow walks leading to the beach near the Bowery were widened and thus chopped the Bowery into four short segments.
Much of the old Coney Island vanished that winter as venerable old institutions, many operating year round, such as Stubenbord's Restaurant, Stauch's, Henderson's Music Hall, Child's Restaurant and even Nathan's were closed for the first time in memory. Stauch's and Nathan's rebuilt on the same site, while others like Child's Restaurant relocated.
After the OM5 performed their last night at the Brooklyn Rosemont May 23, , the summer season was therefore spent, not in NYC or Coney Island, but again on tour this being their third extensive road tour , again organized by agent Alf T. Billboard, April 03, , p. The tour will stretch from New York to the West Coast and back again, according to announcement, and include a number of one-night stands. No bands larger than 11 pieces will be handled.
In addition to these ballroom engagements Horn is lining up summer dates at parks and beaches. He has already several bands booked. Summer booking activities of the Wilton office are beginning to increase. Billboard, May 22, , p. Dreamland Park, Newark, this week. The Five will tour through the parks of Pennsylvania and Ohio following.
The third report I found about this two-week engagement at Dreamland Park, which appeared in the May 23, issue of the New York Morning Telegraph section 03, p. Wilton office. Wilton office has arranged a tour for the Original Memphis Five to run through the month of June. Alas, I managed to find documentation for just a few of the one-night stands of this tour:.
This beautiful dance hall is situated on Covington Pike, occupying the ground formerly known as Forest Park. The park has been done away with and the dance pavilion is therefore surrounded by 12 acres of beautiful landscape.
There is an outdoor and indoor dance floor, both having a distinct orchestra. Dancing will be enjoyed under the most favorable conditions, only couples will be admitted and seating capacity has been arranged to accommodate people. This will do away with the disagreeable custom of standing around the dance floor. There will be dancing every night except Sunday from to Dayton, OH, Daily. The famous Memphis Five, Victor recording orchestra of New York, whose reputation has been firmly established by eight years of catering to the dancing public, were there.
The dance halls were finished in detail and beautifully decorated, and judging from the comments made, the Dayton public is more than pleased with this unique dancing pavilion.
Many floral tributes from business firms and friends expressing wishes for success graced the hall and roses were presented to all women upon entering. Two orchestras are already booked for the affair, besides several talented entertainers who are prominently known. The famous Memphis Five orchestra has been engaged for that week [July 05 — 10].
This orchestra is one of the very few that have the privilege of making records for more than two companies, including Victor and Brunswick.
Charlie Mobley and his orchestra will be used in addition to the Five, making dancing continuous on the two floors. Columbus, OH,. They make records for a number of companies, including Victor. Valley Dale patrons will hear the greatest novelty orchestra the Dale has ever offered tomorrow night with the original Memphis Five, famous Victor recording outfit from New York.
She is sailing August 21 on the Berengaria, accompanied by her mother, and has offers for additional engagements in leading European capitals, including Paris and Berlin.
Before sailing Miss Melrose is appearing in vaudeville with the Memphis Five, well-known orchestra. She opened with this organization today [August 02, ]. Miss Melrose arrived in the East recently and has taken the center of spirited bidding for her services by leading motion picture and vaudeville operators. She gained fame in the West as the outstanding dance sensation in Fanchon and Marco presentations and thru the new box-office records hung up at theaters in various cities where she appeared.
Her London engagement was negotiated thru the Alf T. Wilton office here. However, the Memphis Five, small as it is, ranks among the best in popularity throughout the country, and are as much in demand.
They make records for 28 companies, including the senior corporations. It seems inconceivable that five men command so much tone and their accent is most contagious. However, I was able to detect numerous reports on Mildred Melrose in the contemporary press. Due to space constraints, these cannot be presented here in the hardcopy version of VJM; however, the reader will find a detailed account on her career in Appendix 3 of the internet version of this article.
After finishing their vaudeville job with Melrose, the band resumed touring:. That one is the Original Memphis Five. These boys hold the record of being the only orchestra that plays for twenty-eight phonograph recording companies, including the celebrated Victor Records.
They will be heard on Monday, Aug. No doubt many of our local dance fans have heard them in other cities or have danced at home to the records. Friday in Normal.
Everything is magnified, several times over, at state. There are way more people, more runners and it is, in many ways, how a runner will define his or her season. Yet Pitner remembers blocking all of that out. I set myself a goal and thought about that.
Pitner earned All-State status with a 23rd-place finish and the dough from his brother by hitting on the nose. Races run each hour, starting with Class 1A girls at 9 a. The tension before state races is almost palpable. Competitors gather at their starting boxes, practice run-outs, and, if their team is running, huddle together for one final pep talk. Watling, then an assistant to coach Deb Rakers, witnessed the Hurricanes fall apart in the Class 3A Grayslake Supersectional in against Payton, blowing a one-game lead with an ugly performance to deny them a state appearance.

With a win against Payton, Marian would advance to the state finals for the third time in four seasons. In , the Hurricanes beat Payton in the thirdplace game, Marian won in three games. Was offensive tackle Jonathan Martin the victim of bullying and intimidation by veteran offensive guard Richie Incognito? Was Martin a willing participant and possibly even responsible in his own right for a culture of machismo, crudeness to the point of vulgarity, sophomoric behavior and perhaps even racism that Incognito orchestrated and pursued in the name of fraternity and brotherhood?
Is Incognito the victim here, just a guy who thought he was doing what was best for his teammates and friends in a locker room culture. Maybe, but not likely.
Martin is a confused and troubled young man. Incognito may or may not be guilty of some or all that he is being accused of. But in the completely closed circle that this behavior occurred, it is quite possible Incognito and his teammates genuinely believed it was an appropriate way to show a teammate and friend they cared, and that Martin gave them every indication he agreed. Playing in the NFL is a privilege, not a right, and every player is there by choice. In spite of what so many of us may think, we do not have the right to decide what is always best for others.

Now comes a massive test in the form of three Hoosiers wideouts — Shane Wynn, Cody Latimer and Kofi Hughes — who are legitimate home run hitters.

Notre Dame recovered to win in the third overtime, preserving its perfect record on its way to a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game.
Close games have been the norm over the last five meetings. All five have been decided by six points or less, including two in overtime. That would seem to favor the Irish, who have a way of finding a way under coach Brian Kelly. Notre Dame has won 10 straight games decided by a touchdown or less, including a escape against Navy last week. They were down in the fourth quarter. They had to come.
Notre Dame QB Tommy Rees has thrown seven touchdowns over his last two games, benefiting from newfound balance in the offense. The Irish ran for yards against Navy, including yards and the game-winning touchdown by freshman Tarean Folston. If Folston can find some consistency, Rees will have more freedom to go to work.

Pitt has managed just 54 points combined in their last four games against FBS opponents. Quarterback Tom Savage has spent most of the season under heavy duress.
Pitt was held to minus-5 yards last week against the Yellow Jackets. Pitt sophomore tight end J. Holtz was recruited by the Irish and even made a visit to Notre Dame. Ultimately, however, he settled on Pitt. In a way, facing something a bit more familiar will be a relief. And with good reason. The last time Notre Dame played a traditional attack, it held USC scoreless in the second half of a win.
Rice is a Champaign native but spent two seasons at Drake before transferring to Illinois The hometown kid made the most of his chance Friday. Nnanna Egwu had a double-double for Illinois with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Joseph Bertrand scored 14 and had eight boards. Jamel Waters led Alabama State with 27 points. He was 5-of-6 from 3-point range. Rice was never seriously recruited by Illinois. So he went to Drake before head coach John Groce, in his first season, lured him back.
Rice had to sit out a season under NCAA transfer rules, a. On Friday, Rice looked like the experienced, floor-savvy guard the very young Illini will need. Not long after knocking down the last of those free throws, Rice headed to the bench for a breather and heard a deserved round of applause from his hometown crowd.
But he was quickly back on the court, earning a pair of free throws that he sank with to play to put the Illini up by 21, It was their biggest lead of the night to the point. Rice was 9-for from the free-throw line, and Illinois as a team went for, The Illini will be one of the smaller teams in the Big Ten, relying on a roster heavy on guards.
But Friday they. That size edge translated to 34 points in the paint for Illinois. The Hornets had 16 inside. And Illinois had a major edge on the boards, outrebounding Alabama State The Illini used strong defensive rebounding to overcome cold shooting early, turning in a pair of runs that led to a solid lead by halftime.
The Illini hit 15 of their 39 first-half shots — The first of those runs put Illinois up Bertrand capped it with a put-back off a missed Egwu free throw with left in the half. The Illini host Jacksonville State on Sunday. The Hornets will travel across Illinois to face Bradley.
Of course the center had heard the comments from Pacers forward Paul George. The entire Bulls locker room had. This is a new age, this is a new team. But getting Utah on Friday night was at least a good place for the Bulls to start. Thanks to Luol Deng falling just an assist short of a triple-double, the Bulls improved to with the win over the winless Jazz But looking ahead is the last thing this Bulls team can do.

The early Headcharge albums are the most dirty, swampy- sounding records; you can fucking smell the damp in the room. The one thing everything on this tape has in common is experimentation, but not just for its own sake. It's still got to have the groove and the funk and that's what this record does. It's like a more precise, funkier Aphex Twin. It starts off with this really creepy lullaby in a slowed-down voice.
That was an influence on me - I love it when something appears to be pleasant but turns out to be dark. One drum loop, a solid bass and Hendrix getting more and more out there. Hendrix was obsessed, as much as any techno innovator - like Juan Atkins 20 years later - with experimenting to get an outer space sound.
Black music has always been obsessed with technology and space, which is what some people never get. Once again, you can smell the smoke in the room. And then a theremin comes in. This is just Martin Hannett. The whole spirit and sound of Factory was down to Hannett.
This is a prototype electro record produced by Bernard Sumner. Is this on Gigolo? They can sound like Jeff Mills at times. Jeff, get on Throbbing Gristle, man! To me, it all sounds like it was done live without digital edits. This is the sort of track I could play at the end of a house set or a techno set. Did I mention him? You can smell the filth and oppressive atmosphere, and again, everything sounds like it's been captured as they were doing it.
This has got these dark nursery rhyme lyrics underpinned by amazing guitar sounds and amazing production. I think in the depths of my subconscious this is a really influential record. I bought it in , and in the dark days of the sixth form common room, this was a breath of fresh air. First card out of the hat gets the prize. Makes and plays dead dirty house music.

Manchester United make me really angry - they just beat us in the league, the bastards. But what makes me furious is people who look great and wear beautiful clothes and then go and listen to pop.
What's that about? They should be listening to futuristic tech-house. Clothes should be a statement of your personality, and you need to display it. My most romantic gesture was proposing - we were in an airport in Croatia, surrounded by people, but I still went down on one knee, the lot!
They should be covering much more obscure acts and labels. We were being interviewed by Mark Goodierfor Radio 1. He asked me about all the drug references, which of course I denied fully. I read a lot of magazines, and usually fashion publications rather than music, like GQ and Arena Homme. London Rools OK! But everyone else? Classic is a favourite label of mine, and this record is very new. Old things bore me.
After that, I wanted to release some singles first, to build up an awareness of Mr C as a solo artist. His voice has inspired me since way back in the Eighties and I love working with him. I just saw Y Tu Mama Tambien which is really funny and quite shocking.

Hardened veterans are bitterly suspicious of the deal Michael Eavis has been forced by Mendip Council to cut with Vince Power, fearing a Phoenix Festival-style strong-arm security nightmare.

There's also a pre- party upstairs at Anexo, where you can get Tall Paul cocktails! Even under the most Xtreme conditions. An unrivalled master of showmanship, for the best part of a decade Busta has been the one hip hop artist that Britain has wholeheartedly clasped to its collective bosom.
And the laydeez in the house at this west London gig, you sense, would like to do that in a more literal sense. Less forbidding and underground than Wu-Tang, but less of a twat than P Diddy, Busta Rhymes and his Flipmode Squad have consistently scored in the UK with their astute mix of rapid- fire flow, obvious samples and crackling studio productions. Tonight, with a stage set that consists of a slide projector and a pair of decks, Busta and sparring partner Spliff Star perform to a sold-out Apollo with more glee and gusto than any big-name hip hop visitor to London we can recall.
Ever the populist, he takes great delight in name-checking local haunts like, uh, China Whites, where he and his crew evidently had various mis adventures. Unsurprisingly, the 2, strong crowd, who are good-natured and in high spirits in spite of the excessive police presence outside the venue, love every minute of it. Despite some corny interludes that fall a little flat on occasion, the hits are all present and correct, bristling with raw, twitching energy.
That Busta can holler bars and display his dance moves at the same time only adds to the spectacle. Several UK clubs had been prevented from trading under their own names by a mystery Spanish company who copyrighted the names as their own and proceeded to either trade under them or sell them back to the respective brands for thousands of pounds.

In early May, the island is not quite the stuff of modern legend. It's a typical Lottie statement. And now, with a series to be broadcast throughout the Balearic summer, Radio 1 are about to shoot her to the top of the DJ pile. Like it means something right now.
Lottie speaks about music like a trainspotter: she knows catalogue numbers, reminisces about old house records from her youth like they were beloved cousins. When she talks about learning to mix, her eyes sparkle. From I had combat trousers with a broken zip held together with a safety pin.
There are problems because her room is on the third floor, there is no lift, and she has a heavy box of records.
However, when she gets up to her room it is damp and would be impossible to sleep in. She and friend Caroline Prothero co- founder of their London club Missdemeanours vow to ring another hotel and book in there. Quelle horreur! The star is not happy! Heads must roll! Sadly, haters, over lunch, Lottie reveals herself to be charming and friendly. She can even order food and drink in Spanish. And she then actually eats it, unlike some female stars.
She says she was always wary of being pushy, and wants to impress people by her performance behind the decks, not through belligerence or networking - ironic given that she goes out with Dan from FC Kahuna. Her DJing, similarly, has matured gradually. Her DJ sound of a couple of years ago was a bit samey, a bit one- paced, as if she was trying a little too hard. But recently her sound has relaxed.
Her sets now fizz with experimentation, humour, and fun. Everything seems to have come together at just the right time. Lottie, what do you accept and decline gig-wise? Her older brother loved music and saved up to buy a Linn hi-fi system. When she was put to bed she remembers getting up again and dancing to his music she could hear through the wall.
Lottie is doing the Muzik interview in her hotel at In my garden, the hall, the kitchen, the living room. I want to make a record! Chester, she reckons, was great for clubs. There was Blast at High Society, which played rare groove until, influenced by the Hagienda in Manchester, it dramatically changed music policy in favour of acid house.
Lottie went to Blast every week - her dad would drag her out of the club, furious, because she was 15 at the time. Her mates all male started mixing. She still waxes lyrical about their skills. She froths wildly when she talks of mixing using the EQs. She gets excited talking tech. At 17 she got decks and a mixer from Global Grooves in Chester, partly paid for by her mum and brother. She spent four hours a night practising and started DJing at Includes remixes by Josh Wink and Tiga.
Machine Says Yes. The Album Out Now. Whether through natural inclination or long experience, she is unwilling to say anything that might be construed as controversial in interviews. I think my boyfriend is really anal about music but sometimes he says I have a tendency to be a house snob. We got through bottles and bottles of wine. Lottie looks aghast. James Lavelle said that, but no, no. Does she ever feel any hostility from male DJs? She leans back in her wicker chair.
Lottie plays a good set to a packed dancefloor, but the place never quite kicks off. Lottie drinks red wine and punches the air, but only a bit. She is still slightly mortified by the question Muzik asked her earlier.
How many drugs do you need to stay up to do a late set? She fixes us with a steely glare. I start sober and drink steadily so as soon as I finish my set and get off I feel drunk. But what the hell. Lottie is polite, warm and up for it.
She thinks. This is painful. All the DJs that I know who are girls are pretty good looking. Lottie has her Radio 1 slot and is being primed for big- time broadcasting.
After appearing in the TV programme Faking It her profile is higher than ever. So is she happy to be making some money at last? Sort of. And all on her own terms. Is she still acid house? Not only that, but it would sound better, too.
It took the pressure off. Stints in half-formed and barely remembered bands followed, as did a life clubbing during the Mud Club era, slightly pre-rave. But mates can be unreliable.
