The Young Gentlemen’s Adventure Society/Parada 88 – Adventure Party / You’re Gonna Miss Me

Well, this has been a long, cold and oddly bleak road to finding some new music worth posting on Heads Down. After sending out a disarmingly sad request on Facebook for something fresh to beat my drum over (as it were) the answer was sitting buried in my inbox all along. While not wildly upfront […]

Siafu ‘Slunk Dub’ (Bokhari Records)

Now, I don’t know much about Siafu or Bokhari Records, which in this era of media information saturation seems very much the zeitgeist (see Tusk, not to mention my own now defunct Untracked Recordings), so I like the cut of their jib. Vinyl-only, 300 copies; these are concepts that inspire allegiance and anticipation. Their first […]

Discodromo & Massimiliano Pagliara ‘Samba Imperiale’ (Cocktail D’Amore)

What’s this? A 12″ featuring an original and a remix from two of my favourite contemporary artists? Massimiliano Pagliara (with the excellent Discodromo) and the constantly surprising Soft Rocks are in FULL effect on this release, ably assisted by trusty deckhands Cos/Mes and Kid Who who also represent on the remix front. I’m a huge […]

Bad Passion with the Idjut Boys

I’m posting about this for two reasons, those reasons being the two exceptional sets of people involved. The Bad Passion boys are, you guessed it, endlessly passionate about their music and incredibly serious about the less-than-serious business of throwing a wicked party. The Idjut Boys are absolutely sensational on a good night, and nothing less […]

Nick The Record Pop-Up Store At LN-CC

Nick The Record is one of those names that has been buried deep in my London musical consciousness since the early nineties (he was a regular player at DJ Harvey’s Moist night in Covent Garden), his name is almost a byword for record lust, obsessive collecting and an uncynical love for spreading the (near) perfect […]

Brennan Green Interview

vimeo Direkt Well, it seems I’ve sorted out the technical issues that have been dogging me for the past month at Heads Down (I won’t bore you with the mind-numbing details) so it’s on with the show… Not so long ago those lovely chaps Toby Tobias and Danny Clark from Late Night Audio kindly got […]

Idjut Boys Interview

I interviewed the Idjuts for the first time a year or so ago, and it was great fun. Unfortunately it was on a very lo-res format and it’s like watching an interview with two cartoon bubble men made out of Tetris blocks (or something). Anyway, My work with the AllSaints Basement Sessions has luckily allowed […]

We chat about Chicken Lips’ upcoming album, his origins and his inspirations, as well as fitting in a quick behind the scenes look at […]

Hot Chip ‘One Life Stand’ (Carl Craig PCP Remix)(Parlophone)

Hello everybody, and welcome back to the snug, reassuring geekery of Heads Down. I have been down (and am still down) with a cruel bout of chicken pox, so I’ve not been tending to this particular garden. I get sent a pretty much continuous stream of bilious crap from record labels, so imagine my surprise […]
