December

by

From all of us here at PBP we wish you a very Merry Christmas.

This post is particularly aimed at my cousin Al, currently residing in Tokyo, Japan and making waves in the software development world:

If you haven’t come across Orange Juice, I reckon you’ll love them – you can hear the influence that Dogs Die In Hot Cars and countless other Scottish bands have drawn  from their work – Edwyn Collins was their front man and  you might know them for ‘Rip It Up’ a staple of Indie DJs everywhere. ‘Hokyo’ is a lovely rare B-Side I came across recently in a spate of mass record digitisation – I’ve been loving it for its weird synth inflected curves – the version below is a rip from a 12″, hence the crackiliness.

The Air track, ‘Alone in Kyoto’ features in the film ‘Lost in Translation’ – it’s a lovely slice of gallic electronica and through its use in the film is always going to remind me of Japan (and Scarlett Johansson!)
