Belgium's Marginal Records - Bootlegging the 60s' Forgotten Pop and Soul

quote [ Marginal's releases were often closely followed by official releases from companies holding the rights, which indicates that Marginal was often the catalyst for the major labels to get off their arses and actually have a look at what they had in their back catalog. ]

Some funky bootleggin' going on in the 90s.

Nu-Iphone, by CARNNIBAL

quote [ from the album Murderah ]

Killer track! Carnnibal mix a sort of rough latin dancehall on a label specialising in ? political twerk music. Operated from Canada.
Or something. Fit for SE, I guess.

They also release good free samplers.

A Decade of Music Is Lost on Your iPod. These Are The Deleted Years. Now Let Us Praise Them.

quote [ If you were an early adopter of Apple Music Store, as I was, everything you bought from 2003 to 2009 is stuck on a dusty iPod for which a charger can no longer be found, or on a MacBook that?s three MacBooks ago. Whether you bought that whole first Kaiser Chiefs album or just plunked down the 99 cents for ?I Predict A Riot,? you don?t have it anymore. It simply does not exist for you, and it didn?t even leave behind a record sleeve to let you know it ever did. Now the era is over, and only a handful of neglected Maxell compact discs reminds me that I used to be really into The Pipettes. ]

I still buy CDs and own a Zune.

quote [ Hardcore Architecture explores the relationship between the architecture of living spaces and the history of underground American hardcore bands in the 1980s. Band addresses are discovered using contact listings found in demo tape and record reviews published from 1982-89 in the fanzine MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL (MRR). Google Street View is used to capture photos of the homes. ]

An older artsy project, still an interesting view. There is a cool article about a Black Flag concert at the time that illustrates suburban youth pretty good to me.

Thumb is "Mechanized Death".

Northern Soul Top 500

quote [ The Twisted Wheel, the sound was Motown, Stax, Atlantic and their imitators ? American Soul music with an express train beat that found a spiritual home in England?s North and a name? ?Northern Soul?. ]

Coming from a music nerd's book, cobbling these together digitally got a rejuvenation in the earlier internet days. Find more thoughts and some of my favourites in the extended.
