It's Friday . . . Let's Dance
Way back in 2008 Andrew Weatherall and a few of his mates from the Boardroom collaborated on an excellent album where tracks by Radical Majik, E.S.G. and Le Sarge En Board were presented in their original form and then given the Weatherall treatment and then a couple of TLS tunes were reworked by members of the Boardroom. The following year a second volume was released which was even better than the first. It inculuded a Weatherall track which at the time as one reviewer has said was an "absolute chugging killer" and still sounds brilliant today. I eagerly awaited the vinyl release of this track as it was mooted at the time that it would be released as a 12" but sadly this never happened and I've had to live with the cd which is probably one of the most played cd's in the house.
As the teams for the play-offs for the Scottish First Division become even less clear, at present as five teams compete for two play off places with only two games to go. Airdrie take on East Fife who are on the same points but with a vastly superior goal difference tomorrow away, Unfortunately I can't go to this match as L is taking me away for the night for my recent birthday. It's another must win game not just for the Airdrie supporters but also it means that we will go into the final match with something to play for. This is important as I will be joined at the Excelsior by some special guests from Seattle (Brian) , Germany (Walter), Manchester (Swiss Adam) and maybe another blogger from the central belt (CC) who will be in Glasgow for the first Bloggers Summit weekend when we intend to drink too much and talk pish mostly about music but probably life the universe and everything. Also present will be Dirk, who hasn't the faintest interest in Airdrie or football for that matter and will be chaperoned in Glasgow by JC and some of his friends and sometimes contributors while the football is on. I have to admit that the closer we get to this weekend the more I am looking forward to it.
Have a good weekend people.
