I'm a retired suburban pimp doing hard time in Austin, TX. My Dad was a one-armed paper hanger, my Mom a kindergarten teacher to gifted and talented child actors. One time Gary Coleman came to my Birthday party and he hit my little sister with a plastic baseball bat.

Wow, one of your mixes is doing swell in the ratings! But remember, Bob Dole did 'swell' in the primaries...

Thanks for the compliment. I'll probably put up a sendspace download link of the mix sometime tomorrow if I ever figure out how to work the damn thing.

Oh, and if your only experience with Roxy Music is with Avalon, then you should be pleasantly surprised by the rest of their stuff. That's definitely my least favorite album. I'd check out the Greatest Hits album to get a wide swath of their sound and see which version you like - they covered a lot of different genres. Avalon's more of the 80's smooth sound.....they started out being a lot crazier. Brian Eno was a member for their first two records. For what it's worth, Stranded is my favorite album.

You're finally legal! Huzzah! We all know you've been boozing since you were 13, but don't worry, we'll keep quiet.

Now, get off the damn computer and go hit up the bars.

I don;t know them. But I'll check them out. Song 13 on the new Air album is a duet with Charlotte Gainsbourg (his daughter) and Jarvis Cocker. You might check that one out as well.

I haven't seen the new soul/jazz compilations, but there was some good soul jazz/jazz funk being made in England in the 80s, just before the dawn of acid jazz with people like Working Week, Morrissey Mullen, my friend Dick Heckstall-Smith and many more. Some of that stuff is still around and worth catching. Particularly the first James Taylor Quartet album (no relation to the folkie) and any Brit Jazz compilation put together by Giles Peterson.

You really cant go wrong with Serge's Jane Birkin album. I guess by the "dub" one you mean the reggae album Aux Armes Et Caetera, which is another of my favorites. Initials B.B. great late 60's French pop. Vu de l'extérieur is good as well.
So I think I would get them in that order. If you want early cool jazz in a smoky Paris club, go for Couleur Cafe.

In the future, Biff Tannen will almost assuredly own all of our asses. So, here's a preemptive honoring of his eventual kingship.

Congrats on first -- the future thanks you. Now, make like a tree and get the hell out.
