It's great to hear the 12" versions of 'You're my kind of climate' and 'Storm the reality asylum' again; also a brilliant dance mix of the former!

  • For those who don't know, they are releasing all three albums on CD with bonus material in a months time. Pre-orders are up on amazon.
  • "Rip Rig + Panic" not!! "Rip Rig & Panic" Musilov, You and Only You...........
  • Junk = Jazz & Funk..............
  • Listener's trend is going up: where are the other 1000?
  • Last week, driving to Pukkelpop, I listened to 'God' full volume in the car. It was 35°C in the car and when 'The blue blue third' came on, man, that was heaven. Didn't remember this album to be SO BRILLIANT!!!!! Beats all those guys with beats in their cars.
