ratatat and some other c**** play in my suburb

to that dj who played at hotel illawarra a couple of weeks ago, who got on the mic and said "this one is hot from the sydney clubs!!!" i hate you, and so do so many other people. i do not care if you are a ninja, or you played the onelove/smirnoff tent at a festival 3 yrs ago, you suck. and playing pre-prepared set off ableton and pretending you are mixing is lame and deceptive.

so in my mind, when i want to see international acts i go to sydney, or towradgi
things we have that you dont

  1. one of the bali 9 drug smugglers
  2. tradehooks HQ
  3. the worlds biggest touch football carnival
I'm right about most things, and i dont need to remind you, but one thing i know i will be right about is how good ratatat are. from nyc, i first heard their rework of Hot by missy Elliot and that was amazing, so got my hands on their two hip hop remix albums, and they are amazing.

and if i hear anyone call them ratatatat again i will lose it

also there is footwear regulation (created by me) no shoes that look like this


Thursday 7th of May

Tickets $29.50 + bf available from the venue (bottleshop / 42833588) or Moshtix.

The Making of Mr Oizo's - Lambs Anger

MAKING LAMBS ANGER (ok quality) from oizo mr on Vimeo.


Graz Sunglasses ooooooooohhhh

Graz Mulcahy used to work for AM and Ksubi, and was good at what he did. some would say too good, and made everyone else feel inadequate, especially when you put out ur own eyewear label that smashes everyone off the face of the industry. 

its called Graz eyewear

I didn't like these, but my friend from school said they were cool, and she is an art student, so i agreed. apparently they look good on men, im not so sure
But the new ones are kick arse, they kinda look like my ksubi geezers
Elle, i need this, my birthday is May 12
thanks to alicia for the tip, and to colt + rane for the pictorial

So it turns out the chick from hercules love affair is actually one of the most convincing trannies out

i knew there was something up
people kept trying to tell me that they were 'weird' but i thought that they were 'different'
from the listen i swear the singer was a dude, but i never saw him singing, then i saw video, then pics

then it made sense

Turns out he/she was a fair accomplished vocalist b4 hercules

cool interview with the band

Hercules Love Affair - Blind (Hercules CLub Mix)

Hercules Love Affair - Hercules Theme (Live)

Hercules Love Affair - Wonder Woman (Live) not an album track i dont think, but cool as

Mercy Arms Tragically Break Up and Mars Volta 5th album due date released

After only a few short years (3 pretty much), Australia's Mercy Arms have broken up due to artistic differences or some shit. i guess they just didn't 'get' each other. 

They played in the Gong last year at the oxford but i didn't go...

So lets look back fondly on what was a stellar career

kept low (cut copy remix) - Mercy Arms 
tradehooks: selecta, did you leave out anything?
selecta: no im pretty sure that's it, oh maybe that no actually, that was it
tradehooks: oh really, so why blog about them then?
selecta: actually i dunno, well they supported the strokes on their tour in 2006, cut copy in 2007, and the pixies at their 2007 sydney show.
tradehooks: so they were a support band, like that band called 'special guests', who never headlined a show, but were always supporting?
selecta: yeh thats right
tradehooks: when is the new mars volta album coming out?
selecta: vijay just said the Mars volta new album comes out 19th June in Australia, ealier on bitorrent. i fuckin hate mars volta
