quote [ The enduring role of the contests in the novelty songwriting world?a phenomenon that started with Dr. Demento and today reflects one of its late, great icons. ]

It?s not a song that the label will push

Music of the Squares: David Ramsay Hay and the Reinvention of Pythagorean Aesthetics

quote [ Understanding the same laws to apply to both visual and aural beauty, David Ramsay Hay thought it possible not only to analyse such visual wonders as the Parthenon in terms of music theory, but also to identify their corresponding musical harmonies and melodies. Carmel Raz on the Scottish artist's original, idiosyncratic, and occasionally bewildering aesthetics. ]

quote [ You became a disco diva?
LAURICE: Yeah, I actually did. I had a few hits, worldwide and domestic, before going to the U.S. I did okay there, but I missed Canada and I?m back there now. ]

This is the same guy sharing the studio with Pink Floyd, doing proto-punk ahead of its time, dance hits in the 80s and still going strong.

Check out said song in the extended and read part two of the interview.

Most of the material has been re-relased by now, also check out the fabulous website (also, thumb source).

The art of DJing: Jeff Mills

quote [ After so many years you learn how to pace it. I don't sweat, hardly ever. Because I've conditioned myself to not sweat so much. When it's very hot, very humid, I move less. Because I've been in many cases where it's just a disaster, I can't touch the mixer because it's soaking wet, with humidity dripping down, I can't grip the line levels and stuff. Sweat dripping, the headphones and the whole thing just becomes a mess. So over time I can't control that. ]

Talking about DJing is often as obnoxious as discussing Espresso machines but this interview somehow transports the relaxed craftsmanship of a veteran. Ok, a bit obnoxious maybe.

Also: no vinyl, interestingly.

Nine Inch Nails' decade-old April Fools' joke album is now real, validating today's celebrations

quote [ Ten years ago today, Nine Inch Nails made a bad April Fool?s joke by announcing a ?new full-length album? called Strobe Light. The mock-up track list detailed 14 songs, complete with intro and outro skits, titles like ?Coffin On The Dancefloor,? and a line-up of guests including Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, and Fergie. As continued evidence that this happened back in 2009, the album was supposed to have been produced by Timbaland. ]

Yeah, yeah, yeah, with your nine inch nails
