I try each week to avoid mentioning the weather, honestly, I do, but it keeps on mucking things about and stealing the show- I nearly wrote the thunder, bless me. It’s hard to not let these know situations dominate your train of thought when writing a blog that no one reads or comments to, but hey it could be quite cathartic to do so at the very least.
Chatty-wise bit this week: I mentioned that I recently watch a new John Travolta Movie [Eye for an Eye] even though I thought it was a bit tacky or poorly directed after the first 20 odd minutes- but I gave in and watched the whole thing. Normally, I would give movies on TV about 20 minutes to get good whereas in televised serial shows I give an episode or two- not sure why? How tolerant to new films or TV shows? – do you give a specific time or just ride them out?

Meanwhile, new music this week kicked off the show with Duran Duran, along with new tracks from EmT – Diamond Field – Brutalist Architecture in the Sun – Mind Machine – NOPRISM – Jigsaw Sequence – Shadows and Mirrors, plus a few new remixes and tracks from classic artists.

Tracklist:
1. Duran Duran – MORE JOY! (feat. CHAI)
2. Handsome Dancer – Coincidance
3. Anton Witter – Frozen (PB Remix)
4. Depeche Mode – Here is the House (Waveblower Rmx)
5. Mechanical Cabaret – Different but the same
6. EmT – This Was Your Life
7. Bliss My Heart feat Eric Jayk – Reason To Dust
8. Gary Numan – Observer
9. Denial Waits – Tumbleweed
10. Diamond Field – In This Moment
11. Voltron 2 – Wish I Was There
12. Hands Of Industry – I Swear
13. Dicepeople – Borderline (Wish)
14. Brutalist Architecture in the Sun – Alien on the Underground
15. Daysound ft. Neil Francis – Just Like Me Just Like You
16. Sinestar – Breathe Again
17. Mind Machine – Do You Hear Me Anymore
18. Ditsea Yella – You know it’s true
19. Mirrors – Into The Heart [Richard X Radio Edit]
20. Noprism – Animosity
21. Matt Mancid & Color Theory – The Sun and The Rainfall
22. Oui Plastique – The Fear
