'Staticman plays out

He may have been quiet at Research HQ of late, but Cinestatic chief Michael Forrest has been locked in his studio sculpting beats, and talking about the work-life balance on the Live Journal platform. Catch him, his laptop and his instruments perform in the pub surroundings of Filthy McNasty’s, Amwell Street EC1, tomorrow

Spadvert


Release The Pressure by Leftfield has been featured in a Cheestrings advert. The agency responsible has equated 90s digidub with this novelty fromage, supposedly to illustrate the bouncy, buoying, vitalist transhumanist potential of eating quite-good-for-you-actually processed dairyfoods. Daley and the other one were nonplussed about the arguably tacky juxtaposition, but did say they’d stick to la vache qui rit, merci very much.

Other tie-ups to come:
Massive Attack’s Unfinished Sympathy backs Red Bull (Shara just keeps walking on and on)
Prodge’s Smack My Bitch Up to flog John Stalker’s Home Security System (you can’t domestically abuse with these cams everywhere)

Dance music condemned

"It's not just Eric Prydz, much of contemporary dance music relies on sampling not just chord and riffs but huge chunks of others artists' back catalogues."
Phew! trenchant words from Conservative Surrey Heath MP Michael Gove, drilling down to the big issues for any politician. Mind you, I guess the muppet is appealing to the obvious impulses of the electorate in his constituency, Camberley Apathy Central. He goes on, to address historical matters:
"The superiority of Blur over Oasis, a superiority underlined by Damon Albarn's continuing creativity while the Gallaghers rest on their loyalties [super pun!], lay in Blur's subtle capturing of the inspiration of past bands, in contrast to Oasis' cruder appropriation of pubby nostalgia."

Mickey, train your eye away from popular culture, forget this old duel and delete the bloated mock-bombast of Country House from your iPed. Gove was speaking in obese daily The Times.
