Fun-da-mental ‘Audio Shrapnel’ XFM Superchunk


First broadcast in December 2001 for the Eddie Temple-Morris & James Hyman program on XFM.  Big respect to DJ Overhaul who constructed the final mix on his jack after my back put me on ice for a few days.  It represents the manner to which we hit gigs in the short time we threw down as the Nation World Service / Audio Shrapnel DJ team, throwing everything into the pile.  (Thanks to Suki for the tracklist)

This Land is Not For Sale

Coming soon from Indigenous Resistance, ‘This Land Is Not For Sale’.  Contributors include Dr. Das, Asian Dub Foundation, Ramjac, Visionary Underground, Fatta (Jamaica), Adrian Sherwood, and myself.  There’s also gonna be some Spanish versions packed in there also.
What is Indigenous Resistance?  It’s a revolutionary musical collective creating crucial pan-global collaborations between indigenous cultures from the jungles, favelas and barrios with those in the industrialized world who work their musical magic in mixing studios and on laptops. IR releases are completely autonomous self-funded works achieved through barter, little money, but an abundance of commitment and co-operation.  Are you part of IR?
More juice here….
To the Ghost:  Hold one of dem Mark Stewart shirts for me please!

InnerOuterWider Space


This week’s program delves into space.

Usually the week of Womad Las Palmas the program is kinda dedicated to the festival, but change is good, so we’ll save the muesli-eating, sandal-wearing stuff for another time okay.

As I was saying, space….the result of speaking with the Bugman Martian over the weekend. We spoke of influences, gigs we’d like to witness, the death of record shops, blah, blah, blah.  Adrian Sherwood was/is a major influence on us both and the work he did on the Primal Scream album ‘Echo Dek’  is a favourite without a doubt.  Speaking of Adrian, then you have to mention Prince Far I.  Through his work with Adrian I was introduced to the voice of Prince Far I.  Yeah, he was the man too, however he was senselessly cut down over some stupidness in Jamaica. Bloody annoying, finding out about an artist, musician, writer, politician whatever, wanting to find out more, to see them live, and to find out they are six feet under…bloody annoying indeed.  But I digress…so we have more explorations from 4Hero, from the Macro Dub Infections album that Mr. Martian compiled for Virgin Records.  4Hero weren’t ones to play safe, and witnessed by their contribution, The Paranormal in 4 Forms, not your typical drum and bass fare, at all.  Which reminds me, Roy Ayers, with whom 4Hero collaborated several times will be at this years Womad Festival, so if your in the area and fancy some quality, get your butt down to Las Palmas, it’s free.
