• I am impressed by my sticktoitiveness

    The idea is to go to the page of your number one artist, and follow the link of its number one similar artist, then repeating that for this artist and so on, noting down each artist as you go. Do this until you've got to 50 artists (not including your number one). If you get any repeats, just go to the second similar artist or the nearest one that you haven't already had.


    02 安室奈美恵 Who? I knew what I was getting into when I started this. I figured I could learn the names of dozens of Japanese artists I have no idea about and therefore don't particularly care for! Dozens! (Actually I've heard of Amuro Namie, still doesn't mean I know who she is.)

    03 倖田來未 (Koda Kumi) So, wasn't she real ugly before all that plastic surgery?

    04 浜崎あゆみ (Hamasaki Ayumi) ::sighs:: It only took four clicks! It's like getting to the center of a Tootsie pop, except infinitely more depressing. (I kid! She's sort of okay sometimes. Still sounds like a pissed-off cat, though.)
  • It's Automatic, London, Friday 28 Sep

    15 Sep 2007, 14:04 by sharevari

    So it's finally happening. It's been about four months since the rooftop BBQ where me and Sasha started discussing starting a night and Graziela, being absent as per usual, enthusiastically texted back in support of the idea.

    Between us, we have slightly different musical tastes, but with all three being die-hard Future Brain regulars, it was somewhat inevitable that italo disco would play a large part in this new night. We did not however, want it to be just about italo, as Future Brain already does a fantastic job of that. The idea is that It's Automatic should bring together a wider range of styles, from old school electro and freestyle to jacking ghetto disko a la Legowelt, to Detroit techno to minimal synth to 80s pop to italo/cosmic disco etc. All with an emphasis on fun and danceability (and cheesy synths ;).

    The name, in case you're wondering, is nicked from electro classic It's Automatic by Freestyle.

    So, do come down to The Macbeth on Friday 28 September and join in the festivities. …
