a few things from...Get A Room!
Hail Hail the new generation!
I'm not talking about kids fed on beatportee thingees and by the mile club music but about kids grabbing me outside a club, giving me a 10" designed by Trevor Jackson whilst singing how important (read formative I suppose) Le Pulp had been for them.
Aurelien and Jeff could be of those young'uns that keep alive what we sometimes fought for, believed in or simply loved. If in their thirties, they're young at heart and they are not alone. It's probably in this (luckily hard to tag) 'reedit-space-nununu-electronic-analog-disco-whatever' scene that, beyond the annoying geeks and mumbly old timers, that thing is still thriving. La Releve...
Their label, Smalltime Cuts, a couple of noted 10" (how big was The Dreamer), a heavy dose of good spirit and acquired taste (they're not afraid of cheese-good!), a forthcoming compilation of edits for Colette (La releve I said), Dig Out Your Spade.
If I wanted to, I'd feel safe to retire...
GET A ROOM!- I LIKE A CIGARETTE
