Hey, here it is. Friday 10th June's top five. It's my consolidated list of all things awesome this week. Here we go;
1) Video of the week;
DJ Brace - 2016 Online DMC Finals.
I'm a newcomer to DJ Brace, but as you can see he is both technical and musical in his turntablism style, which is a rarity. I don't think the perfectly timed seagull at the end is planned, which is a sign in itself. On a similar note checkout Jon1st, he has both been on The Audio Works Podcast and is a former DMC champion.
2) Gig of the week;
Knees last ever show!
Local band Knees are unfortunately splitting up, and to join them on their last show are Big Evil Grin and Bloodvisions (at The Garibaldi on Saturday 11th June). This gig will be busy and it will be mighty, three powerhouses on one night, get involved. Hopefully it will be a good show an they'll realise they shouldn't be splitting up anyway.
See you there.
3) Quote of the week;
"I'll burn it down, and build it up better." - Billy Lockett.
This is a lyric from Billy Lockett's single, Burn It Down. It's a great example of what I admire in lyrics, concise but emotional and you understand the feeling immediately.
4) A̶r̶t̶i̶c̶l̶e̶ Book of the week;
The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band. - by Neil Strauss
New York Times Best Selling author Neil Strauss wrote this fantastic book on the history of Mötley Crüe, and it is shocking, really shocking, not like TMZ shocking, but crazy rock and roll shocking. We have a copy at the studio so please feel free to come and give it a read.
5) Thing of the week;
Arctic Breeze USB Fan
It's hot, and if you don't have air conditioning where you are (or you are not in control of the thermostat) this is the answer. It's cheap and effective, stay cool, be cool.
Speak to you Monday.
