    STBB #585-confused john travola week

    Congrats on the win DGTL! Hey All, Not really hip hop but I hope sonically enjoyable. All sounds from the choice sample and me with a microphone. I thought the rules were great for experimenting and trying something different for a change. I really appreciate different kinds of rules. Who wants to do the same thing every week? I just hate that I am going to be behind KOW again this week. peace,Hugh

    Hey All, Making drums is not my forte so this was good for me to attempt even if I didn't quite succeed. I always dig the rules that make you stretch. Peace, Hugh

    Hey All, I didn't have the kids with me so I had to use their you tube channels for vocal samples. They are growing up in a much different world than I grew up in but that's the story for every generation. They are good kids in spite of their father. They are my harmony. Peace, Hugh

    1. Jakal (The term "virtuoso" would never be applied to anyone in the Fall but I give it to this track.) 2.The Wolf ( Ready for the football stadium) 3.Bleep ( Captured the theme spot on) Being a fan I have to say everyone did justice to the Fall. They had great riffs and attitude. Looking forward to the next battle. Peace, Hugh

    STBB #579 - Mark E Smith

    Hey Joa and All, The “bollocks” part was my history of being a fan of Mark E. Smith not the charges brought against him in this thread, which are quite serious and hard to defend and I honestly cannot defend his words. I was not aware of these lyrics before but I have to say it is not surprising to me given his deliberately provocative and contrarian stances. I would never pretend to be able to say what was going on in his mind when he decided to put those words in a song outside of his own comments which seem to be him doubling down on the correctness of his intent. The language was ignorant and cruel but probably pretty common in the pubs he would be frequenting at that time, again not excusable but a statement of fact. He is from a working class background and is proud to be “the crap that talks back” in a very class oriented society. He said he could not be an oppressor of black people because the working class shares the same economic oppression from those who hold the power that black people have dealt with historically. He is pointing out that middle class values are hypocritical in that they have the token black person in organizations that have no real desire to change the current power structure. I read that the band revisited the song in 2003 and the line was cut from that version. That is the closest Mark E. Smith could ever come to making any kind of apology. This inability to admit mistakes and apologize must have been hell for those closest to him. Personally in my experience people who behave like this are masking a deep insecurity and cannot allow themselves ever to be vulnerable. Often we are disappointed when our idols are all too human but in a way it makes them more real and brings them closer and into focus. My children are bi-racial and anybody that would hate them for the way they look is not worthy of my respect. I will say that I really don’t think racism was a core principle for him or was a catalyst for his artistic output and because of that absence of racist intent he keeps my respect on the merits of his art. He was like the great “piss taker” of rock music, a role he played admirably for so long. So much for you guys avoiding my “bollocks”. Peace, Hugh

    STBB #579 - Mark E Smith

    Hey All, I could go on for long time about this band and this artist but nobody wants to hear that bollocks (Am I using bollocks correctly here?). I used Frenz, Hit the North, Cruiser's Creek(a personal favorite) and this video . Cheers Mr. Smith! You will be missed by me.

    Hey Joa, I may be totally hallucinating but did you vote twice or is one for someone else. You have vox and kong at 2 and 3 but beat tangerine and barty b at 1 in your two posts. Please clarify so I can count accordingly. I hope you are still up but if not I will count the first. Sorry if this is a problem and I don't won't cause any friction. I just don't know how to count it. Thanks, Hugh Revised-I see C. Syd Rafferty at the bottom now so I will count the first as his and the second as yours.sorry didn't see that.
