It's Friday . . . Let's Dance
Back to the halcyon days of 1992 with a bit of moody breakbeat from the label that was best known for the Prodigy and SL2 at that time, XL. Liquid had made the big time with their previous single, the Marshall Jefferson sampling Sweet Harmony which rightly made the UK top twenty earlier in the year. The Future Music ep followed a similar sort of blueprint, some well known samples, a piano line and a wellchosen breakbeat, it was all about the break. Although the ep didn't have anything quite as immediate as Sweet Harmony it does consist of four very good slices of what for me is early drum and bass. My favourite track is the Todd Terry sampling House Is A Feeling, with it's minimal bassline, moody synths and essential breakbeat.
Unfortunately last week the Diamonds took another mauling away from home at the hands of East fucking Fife, for christ's sake! After scoring in the first minute, it appears that it all went downhill rapidly eventually being scudded 6 (six) one. It would be a lie if I said that either Leo or I are looking forward to tomorrow's home game against Forfar who are one three points and one place below us in the league. We can but hope that some kind of miracle has taken place this week during training, we will see.
Have a good weekend people
