Its real good, check it
Rob Da Bank
Not promoting theft. The Heatwave did a mix for this long haired guys radio show.Listen to it.
Am pleased to say that he is playing at GETME! Vs Immediate Sounds this Friday. For some reason he doesn't seem to appear on many lineups. I would say he is pretty much my favourite grime mc. He hasn't jumped on the electro band wagon and if anything retains a large amount of talent over image. Having given up on Uk Hip Hop, Durrty Goodz, among others still keeps me listening to grime. The Heatwave have written a far more comprehensive post about him, anyhows COME.

Song of the Week
Boy 8 Bit- The Cricket Scores
Been around for a while now but still can't stop listening to it.
I went to Brighton over the weekend, i liked it. A really surreal place where nobody does anything proper, ie any work that doesn't involve a vegan cafe, camden esque "out there" clothes shop or working in some sort of fast food stand. Obviously that is a ridiculous statement as there must be people with "serious" jobs and responsibilities but on the surface this apperars to be a myth. Nothing like Graham Greene's razor blade to the face sea side town found in "Brighton Rock". Gangs are now replaced by ketaymn and mdma loving students hell bent on making the world a better place through warped socialist ideologies. A weekend well spent but i never want to hear anyone tell me how horse sedatives changed their lives or how too much of it hospitalised two of their friends. I tried it once, it sucked.

LADBROKE GROVE BLUD. This reminds me of smoking loads of skunk and being mugged. My local angry rudeboy was called Lorenzo and he mugged me at least 3 times. I like to say im from Ladbroke Grove but really im from the the gentrified area that is Holland Park.Hold tight all the Ladbroke Grove goons, its nothin, STILL

Song of the Week
Declaime - Heavenbound
Nothing new here.Dudley Perkins's alter ego "Declaime" put together the pretty good album that is " Conversations with Dudley". Found the 12" of this recently, great production from Oh No, pretty good verses from Dudley. Having said this, he was awful live and unlike some musicians wasn't boosted by the booze, he merely came across as a vagrant hung up on the bible
Durrty Goodz interview in Vice
There is only one MC who has ever beaten Wiley in a clash and that is Waltham Forest’s Durrty Goodz. Three or so years ago when the hunt was on to find out if the success of Dizzee Rascal wasn’t just a fluke, he looked like the most likely candidate to hop on the major label love-’em-and-leave-’em gravy train. Like Rascal, he could flow double time but with the clarity of any hip hop MC. After first starting out on Mystic FM in Hackney and moving up through the pirate stations, he’d managed to get himself signed to Polydor and was dropping verses on remixes for rappers like David Banner.
Then it all started to go wrong. Goodz, his half brother Crazy Titch, and their stepfather were all arrested and locked up on suspicion of the murder of a young producer linked with an MC who had dissed Durrty. Despite the media headlines implying that the murder was over the lyrics of a song, the actual circumstances behind the killing were far more complex, but will probably never be publicly known. After spending over a year in Pentonville and Belmarsh prisons, Goodz was cleared of all charges last November. Titch and his stepfather were sentenced to serve a minimum of 30 years each in jail.
Goodz came back earlier this year while everyone in grime was busy either watching Smack DVDs or MySpacing Kate Nash, and dropped an EP that reminded me why I got into grime in the first place. From what I’ve heard of it so far, if his new album, Born Blessed, doesn’t give you butterflies, like when you first saw your stepsister’s training bra, I will eat my Are You Dumb T-shirt and shit it into a poo gun and shoot myself.
Vice: So was prison fear vibes?
Durrty Goodz: Prison is just like prison. I suppose it’s the same as anywhere, but I dunno. It’s just prison, innit? It’s just jail, innit? They’re all gritty. All prisons are filthy. You just wanna get out because it’s not a place built for human beings. And that’s that. Music don’t live there, music’s out here. Yeah, that’s why I’m here.
What would you eat for breakfast?
You don’t get breakfast and those things. They don’t do that. You have to survive for yourself, innit? I don’t even take food from them. I wouldn’t even eat, I’d just eat my own stuff. I’d just do my own thing. I don’t think they even give people food. They call it food but I don’t think it’s food.
Were you ever scared?
It depends because when you know you’ve done nothing wrong then sometimes you’ve got nothing to be scared about. At the same time, you know that the system’s wonky so you always have like a couple of scary thoughts in the back of your mind.
Was there one definitive moment that made you think you really didn’t want to be there?
Yeah, there was loads of stuff but you can just look at a prison screw—just look at his face—and you wouldn’t be next to that kind of face. Not when you’re known for, like, having pretty ladies and that. I saw so much violence in there that I can’t even say right now. I see a lot of stuff, I see a lot of stuff. It will probably be all revealed one day. Panorama will probably go in there and tell you what’s happening. I don’t think people understand. That place is so deep—you could just see the food and get upset and know that you’re not meant to be there. It’s not food, it’s just garbage. Everything’s just garbage. It’s not the standard of living of where you come from. You’re gonna be upset every second you’re there.

This trend for hipsters riding courier bikes. Why would you want to be a courier, i don't see people pretending to be postman, although i would prefer that to the onslaught of mugs wearing tiny cycling caps with one trouser leg rolled up. The real couriers i have come across all seem slightly loopy and shout at you to get out the way. Came across a few when i worked on a newspaper for a while and found them to be very intimidating, giving off the vibe of being involved in some free mason esque community that hates all outsiders. I know this trend is not based on people wanting to be green. It has inspired me to pass my driving test and become a road hog."Four legs good,two legs bad". Thanks George

Lost and found
Found this in my basement. It's awful. Not sure whether George Lucas directed it but i am sure he regrets having anything to do with it.
