Its Friday . . . Let's Dance

Warning - this post contains Trance

Hypocrite! I hear you shout, it was only a couple of months ago when,  in this feature I was very disparaiging about trance and the super star djs who promoted it.

Nothing's changed I still get a shiver down my spine, Mme Lagarde stylee when ever anybody utters the word or I'm somewhere and I hear a trance track. However, a few decent, in my opinion, tracks did appear out of this genre and one or two I actually purchased.

Jam & Spoon  are probably best known for Stella and their remix of Age Of Love. Subsequent to this they teamed up with Plavka and released some really rather iffy commercial dance tunes,  the a-side to the track posted, Find Me (Odyssey to Anyoona) falls into this catageroy. The extended instrumental on the other side is a different beast completely, an intro that seems to build forever but when the enevitable breakdown does come in it turns the track into a rather mellow blisssed out affair perfect for the sort of weather we are having at the moment.

Have a good weekend people.

I'm off to try and buy a new scooter. I think my mid life crisis has eventually hit. I'm fair excited at the prospect.

Jam & Spoon - Odyssey to Anyoona.

Somewhere in London right now is the sound of a 40 something ex Mod laughing rather loudly. Still you've got the weather for it now! So, combats and DMs then? Flat top?

Johnny Moped!

You can't spell disparaging, see me.

Simon said...

In all seriousness what are you going for?

In in a bit of a quandry as to whether to go for the really reliable new four stroke

which is really a new Vespa PX as LML bought out Piaggio.

or do I go for a less reliable, restored Lambretta which will cost me up to a couple of grand more but no two year warranty.

Some people, like L would say that this is a no brainer but it is not that easy a decision

L is right. It is a no brainer. Get the Lambretta.

Those new ones don't look as good as a Lambretta, but they have the right look. The silver/white one that shows up first on that page you've linked to (under images) is pure Mod mind, so I would say that.

The purchase itself is a little loony (well, it is!) but if you are going to do it you might as well get some sensible in there. That extra couple of grand could pay for a lot of vinyl remember.

Or it could pay for a placating (?) handbag and the re-pointing that needs to be done.

repointing will want for next year but the handbag might be a good call.

repointing will WAIT
