Following on from the last video with ex-Disco Village man Thomas Bullock dj'ing and dispensing the mezcal to all and sundry, here he is back again behind the decks performing in mental fashion with artist Mischa Hollenbach of Australian design duo Perks and Mini ( available in the UK through cult store LN-CC). Whilst some may dismiss this kind of behaviour as ridiculous, I say why the hell not, and to my mind the crazier the better. All art is subjective and the more fun can be had in expressing yourself the better, perhaps another reminder not t take life too seriously... (bloody lunatics).

and I quote

Three quotes that made feel good recently:

"both tracks clock in around the 13 minute mark and head deep into total-nutball territory" - of the new Hieroglyphic Being release

'one audience member complained: "nooo, that's just too far out..." Thelonius Monk [also sat in the audience] replied; "yeah, but it swings"' - at a Sun Ra concert, early 70's

"I like music that takes you to the fucking edge, and just leaves you hanging there by the fingernails, contemplating death" - me, just now
