Ron Hardy was arguably the most influential Chicago house DJ. When Frankie Knuckles left The Warehouse to open the Power Plant in 1983, Robert Williams lured Ron Hardy with the promise of his own club, the Music Box.

Oceans of Blood and Profits for the Mongers of War

By Robert Fisk

November 28, 2010 The Independent

Since there are now three conflicts in the greater Middle East; Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel/"Palestine" and maybe another Lebanese war in the offing, it might be a good idea to take a look at the cost of war.

Not the human cost - 80 lives a day in Iraq, unknown numbers in Afghanistan, one a day in Israel/"Palestine" (for now) - but the financial one. I'm still obsessed by the Saudi claim for its money back after Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait in 1990. Hadn't Saudi Arabia, King Fahd reminded Saddam, financed his eight-year war against Iran to the tune of $25,734,469,885.80? For the custodian of the two holy places, Mecca and Medina, to have shelled out $25bn for Saddam to slaughter his fellow Muslims was pretty generous - although asking for that extra 80 cents was surely a bit greedy.

But then again, talking of rapacity, the Arabs spent $84bn underwriting the An…

RIP Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson

Image
Throbbing Gristle founder Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson died "peacefully" in his sleep on Nov 24 at the age of 55 in his Bangkok home.

Born in Leeds, England, the industrial music pioneer was also a founding member of Coil and Psychic TV after Throbbing Gristle disbanded in 1981, as well as recording solo work under the name The Threshold HouseBoys Choir. Most recently he founded Soisong in 2007 with Ivan Pavlov.

The news was made official today when Throbbing Gristle bandmates Cosey Fanni Tutti and Chris Carter tweeted: "Our dearest beautiful Sleazy left this mortal coil as he slept in peace last night. words cannot express our grief." Other artists, like Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor also took to Twitter to express their grief: "I awake to sad news. RIP Peter Christopherson - friend and huge inspiration."

Christopherson was also a noted graphic designed and video director -- as part of the design collective Hipgnosis, he created iconic al…

Silence is Golden - or for at least one day of the year it is

Author, prankster and founder of the KLF Bill Drummond explains why he won't be listening to any music at all on 21 November - and why you might want to try it too

From the Guardian

All music is shite.' Discuss.


Some years ago I walked into HMV Oxford Street. I wandered around rack upon rack of thousands upon thousands of CDs. There must have been every form of music that ever existed there. I wanted something new. Something that would make me go, 'Yeah, this is it. I've never heard anything like this in my life.' There have been so many times when I have read a review of an album telling me how great it was so I would go out and buy it, only to get it home to find it sounded like something I had already heard. There was nothing in HMV Oxford Street for me.

So I went home and searched every corner of the web for something new, fresh, exciting. Something that would make me hear music in a different way. So…

Not quite Men Without Hats

Places I've lived

So I stopped by the Mount over the weekend to refresh my mental image of how godaweful the place looks these days... all them cheap apartment blocks and tacky made over houses... ugh

The veiw to sea is still stunning and the day was hot and cloudless... a perfect Novemeber day.

But even the veiw to sea at the main beach was hampered by ugliness, the green in the photo is some sort of green weed/slime

Its a surf beach... how the hell does weed accumulate like that?

It stunk too

Don't you want my love
