Honey Pot Sounds Good, 24 September 2005

It's been about a month since I've posted up a tracklist and there's a two reasons for that. Firstly, it's been fairly busy at zilla HQ between going off to the V festival, the Bestival, working days, working nights, doing an abysmal amount of study, and moving house. Twice. That last word has a whole story of its own which I'm prevented from blogging about, owing to my thumb heading gobwards, and my posture foetal, with any attempt to relive the drama.

The second reason is that one night not long before Bestival, some genius in these parts (we won't say who - there's no need for blame-gaming) got distracted and managed to attach his 120V Korg mixer from the US directly to the 240V UK power grid.


This is a public service announcement. Whether you're nine years old with cordial and a fork in your hand, whether you're nineteen years old with a disco biscuit in your hand, or whether you're twenty-nine years old with your dandy mixer in your hand:

Don't drink and plug, kids. Don't drink and plug.


So though there's no shortage of residential time on the decks in venues around Oxford at the moment - around 18-20 hours a month in fact - I've nonetheless felt quite discouraged from buying new records. This sad state of affairs came to an end on Friday with the delivery of a new power supply, and the joy was unconfined. You might say I suitably honoured the unfortunate plugging incident's accompanying odour of burning plastic by making my credit card smoke as well.

The results were superbly enjoyable and made a stellar contribution to last night's set. Recent buys are linked:

  • Hey I did that too! Well something fairly similar - I plugged my US amp directly into the socket in Australia.

    It doesn't work anymore, but I have yet to throw it out, because I am in denial about what I have done (it has been two years, to give you a little context).

  • did you take it to the amp doctor? if you're lucky there may be just a fried fuse or two and a relatively cheap fix...
