Glen Naughty banned from “Ultimate Social Artist” 2010 Contest

August 25, 2010

Frontrunner candidate, Glen ugly Naughty (GuN) has been banned from the Ultimate Social Artist” 2010 Contest.

The shocking news stunned indie pop fans country wide who support The Fleiss music.

Damon Cleveland, the C.E.O of, (the company who runs the competition) revealed evidence of register fraud and accused the artist of blatant “Tom Foolery”. He states, “It’s clear Glen Naughty has purchased INXS of 1000 copies of his own song title A Wall Street Toy in order to deceive the judges & win the sweepstakes. The decision to ban the artist was a difficult one, yet a necessary evil. Good riddance to bad rubbish”

Glen Naughty was not available for comment. According to his publicist Tom Ford, GuN is overseas on Safari in Switzerland butt denies any wrong doing. He plans to appeal the decision by citing the Book of James.

Anyways this is the second 7″ 45 rpm i’ve reviewd by Betty & The Werewolves. The First was called Daivd Cassidy which I thought was a great piece of Wax butt it’s my Opinion that “Euston Station” takes the cake when it comes to comparrison soley cause it has a great b side in addition to the A

It’s another great POP single . Foxy ladies, Fuzzbox guitars, tight drums and bass, plus melodic female pop vox on the Frontline. Rather than try to describe the music in words you can visit their myspace page & listen 4 yourself although the streaming does not capture the essence and charms of their vinyl release

Gotta Go, my mate Stanley Freeman is knocking on the door & gonna give me music lessons; teach me 2 play me TAPS on The Bugle. Wake up the Neighbours ha ha ha

It’s Party City

The Man Who Sold The World Was John Peel

June 4, 2010

On 26th October 2004  i remember the BBC announcing that John Peel had died of A Heart Attack while on working holiday in Peru (lies: actually i   

Book: John Peel - a tribute to the much-loved DJ and Broadcaster by Mick Wall Lays on A "Half Man Half Biscuit" John Peel Session Record

heard it re-announced from Steve Jones on the now defunct Jonesey’s JukeBox show on indie 103.1 as he secretly listened in on Radio 1 NeWS). It was indeed A sad & nostalgic day 4 the Sub Pop Culture music runaway underground scene booming in Great Britain & the rest of the world including Los Angeles & Orange County

This skillfully crafted tribute & biography of John Peel’s Life is A necessary book that fits Hand in Glove in any music lovers library   

Mick Wall’s stylized script makes this book so EZY to read; it’s full of facts, trivia, philosophy & insight. The paper pages & ink flickr through your fingers with ease & it’s genuinely A riveting read regardless of your existing knowledge of John Peel’s Life & that of his Happy Family. His impact on alternative music , punk & indie, pop becomes exponentially profound      

Highlights within the 231 pages of this hardcover gem include a fantastic insight into the Life & Ambition of the legendary British Radio 1 host, 16  pages of photographs including color, school, weddings, wife & Coolpix of J.P with stars like Kylie Minogue. A full listing of Peel’s Festive 50 (His Radio Show’s Annual Christmas Top 50 Countdown) spanning from 1976-2003 plus The All Time (Millennium) 50 timeless Spins. Imagine your band on The List! 

According to the book Peel has the largest record collection in the world that includes 26,000 vinyl L.P’s & 40,000 7″ 45 rpm singles plus other less meaningful media     

John Peel played an instrumental role with hundreds of indie bands from around the world including The Fall, The Undertones, Futureheads, Billy Brag, The Strokes , Nine Inch Nails, The Flaming Lips, Belle & Sebestian, The Wedding Present, Inspiral Carpets, Happy Mondays & Pavement.  In addition many Classic punk bands including The Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks, Echo & The Bunneymen, The Cure, The Smiths, New Order, Joy Division, David Bowie &  even The Fondled. Strangeways,  Oddites, Risk & LUV was how The Game of Life was played by John Peel. A Legacy of Perpeptual Operation From The Cradle to The Grave  

My only criticism of the book is A small omission; perhaps not 2 Well known by the General Public & fable 2 only a few select industry insiders. Sadly John Peel’s passing happened only hours before his plan to break “The Fleiss” white label 7″ 45rpm  single of  “I’ve Disappeared” on the U.K underground sub mix market. HMV & Virgin Mega stores where forced 2 return all singles by DHL trucks 2 Your Mixed State in California as advertising plans, tour schedules & A rare appearnce on Top of Pops where temporarily forced off the road. A small detour butt the show must go on  

If u wanna know where the alternative music is going & why it is what is in the USA Today, One must know from whenst it came & this book tells all, spills the Beanz  

There’s 2 many cool tidbits & amazing stuff 2 cover this book fully so i say O.K Go Buy Now

p.s The OC indie hipsters who think that John Peel is buried under The Haunted Mansion @ Disneyland are fucking unbelievable twats

Great news! My test pressing did arrive from Rainbo Records on UPS today

The quality of the record manufacture is outstanding & I AM looking forward to the full run that will include the artwork & full track listing.. I told Rick to “Lock & Load” & “Send the Wax to the Max”  (a music biz term 4 “”Start of full production run”). He told me selling of vinyl records especially 7″ 45′ is on the upturn & they are busy selling all kinds of records for Christmas

As you can see my desk in The Office is a mess right now (i need a professional organizer) butt things are allways Mad @ Your Mixed State
