    Oh, by the way I just got in from work. So I'm gonna spin a few tunes, sit in the garden sippin' cucumber vodka and then get some kip. Think of me when your nursing those heads at work  

    Nite Nite

    For folks sake!

      slightly smaller turnout last night (maybe 16 or so) but high quality stuff! colin hero from edinburgh, manzo and raj mann from birmingham, vibra from sheffield, great turnout! plus the usual suspects.

      we wrapped up the final voting on the comp with some fantastic new stuff. only one controversial selection but democracy ruled. comp will be going into pre-production shortly.

      when i left about 10.30ish it was just starting to kick off and it even looked as if we may have some semi-regular punters who don't actually bring a bag of records!

      quality spins too from greg, rich/matt, sermad, nick c, mark (some amazing Euro jazz dance stuff)...

      so, Nick C and Greg, what's the next move on the comp?
      Chops for show, groove for dough.

        Next move is to find me some Annadin mate... Then I'll post up the playlists shortly. Turnout was excellent, like Ed said, interaction with non-Brilloittes is starting to take place, which is great - one guy in particular loved it, kept coming up to take notes etc... wait a minute, that makes him a Brilloitte!

        Rich, can I take up your offer of picking up them Poetics for me? Cheers dude.

        And Matt, Sermad and Vibra. If you send me your chosen tracks, I can make a little edit of the whole finalised playlist to play at the next Brillo - give everyone a feel of what the whole package encompasses... It won't be in the finalised order, but will give a good idea.

        And for those who want a say in the track order, I'll also be able to burn a CD with all the tracks on, then you'll be able to pop it in your computer and shuffle them around until you've got an idea of how you think it should run. I'll name the tracks according to who submitted them, but the real titles will remain anon for now...

        That way those interested in working out the play order can simply post up their proposed track order etc...

          Not much to add to what Ed has posted really, another great night... good to meet some new faces again. Mind you, not sure Sermad has really got the hang of this voting thing yet....

          Left not long after you Ed, so that I had plenty of time to get to Waterloo and the express train back to Southampton.... and sure enough got there with ten minutes to spare.

          However, I managed to misread the platform number and ended up on a stopping service to Portsmouth, which at no point announced it's destination. And the guard checking the tickets didn't notice I was on the wrong train. And it terminated at Petersfield because of engineering works. So, just 40 miles in the wrong direction then.

          Phone conversation with my girfriend went thus :

          'Are you at the station ?'
          'Well, I'm at *a* station.....'
          'Which station ?'
          'Erm, Petersfield ?'
          'PETERSFIELD !'

          So, thanks Caz for getting out of bed and driving to Petersfield to pick me up at 2 in the morning. And not being that angry with me  

          Edit : Nick, I'll get that 45 burned and on to CD ASAP for you.
          Matt Hero

                  The Vote
                  A fairly anarchic session with an official warning given to Sermad for talking at the back and having his head stuck up the ass of a Vestax portable. Eventually order is restored and the votes made. We now have 17 tracks chosen. On with the fun:


                  Celeste OST
                  Pyranha – (can’t read Sermad’s writing)
                  Themes in Beat – Dirty Drugs
                  Pundlap – Sounds of Now
                  Creative Pop

                  (This was the only legible part of SermadÂ’s writing. Obviously not his full playlist, it can only be presumed that at this point, Sermad was hell bent on oblivion and trying to blow up the other end of the bar with dynamite)

                        Well, yes and no.

                        Yes, because it was the hottest day of the year yesterday.

                        No, because it&#39;s a tip top tune that deserved getting an airing at Brillo.

                        Why d&#39;ya ask&#33;?


                        • #13
                          because of it being the hottest day of the year&#33; no question as to the niceness of the track at all - lovely drums...


                          • #14
                            Surely today is hotter?


                            • #15
                              you could be right. it&#39;s too hot to argue&#33;

                              not a nice day to be working in an office, whatever

                              this one:
                              &quot;Israel (Popper Stopper) – Bigley Woman (with a short, short miniskirt)(winner of this month’s Brillo insane title award)&quot;

                              should be Israel &#39;Popper Stopper&#39; Tolbert (sp?) - Big Leg Woman which makes more sense
