In The Flesh
This historics box set especially assembled for RVNG is blowing my mind. I'll just do an extremely brief summary since I would wank on about this for aeons. 10 tracks over 3 records remixed by the likes of Jackpot, Leo Zero, Allez-Allez, Andrew Allsgood, Low Motion Disco, SirBilly, Pink Stallone and MORE. Housed in a beautiful cardboard enclosure with each 12" being wrapped individually in mammoth 32" x 24" posters. The amount of love that has gone into this release is staggering. Read the full story on the RVNG website and snatch up one of the 50 in existence! Musically the package is a lot darker than I'd expected from seeing these names, and there have been a few really pleasant surprises. This is the holy grail for lovers of physical media.

Another beautiful package is this first release on Pacific Beach Recording Company with a couple of amazing Harvey edits of Doc Severinsen tracks. Heavyweight vinyl, amazingly well engineered, lovely packaging and groovy-as-fuck music. This track has strut written all over it. Can't wait to hear what's next on this label!

I've had this Meco Star Wars record for ages which has been a prized posession ever since seeing Stacey Hedger bust out a blistering trumpet solo over the top of the A-side. For some reason though I only listened to the other side for the first time last week. It's pretty cool! If you can get past the tedious marching drum breaks that interrupt every couple of minutes it's a pretty hot jam. Who wants to do the edit?
Meco - Other Galactic Funk
Parties parties parties. Next Sunday we're doing another Death Strobe weekend-end at Bondi Social which will be super fab - details to come. This Saturday hit up Adult Disco at The Civic (as usual) and have a goooood time.
