When the inevitable post-New Year blues came calling, I took to a mode of semi-hibernation and, for the first couple of days of January, was With Laptop. I can’t honestly say anything productive came out of those four days (or was it two? Seven?) which, musically, switched between dark, plinky techno, Matthew Dear’s Black City (which incidentally showcases a smidgen of the former) and bad quality Youtube tracks probably best grouped under the “camp classics” umbrella (which I imagine looks a bit like this). A kind of manic depressive musical haven, if you will.
Back in the land of the living (thank fuck), I was alerted to this little feel-good gem of a mix (with interview) from Acid Washed which they’ve impressively managed not to stuff full of their own tracks and instead included the Glimmers, Azari & III and a personal favourite from Munk (ace video).
I’ve acquired two CD copies of the self-titled debut album and two beautiful vinyl copies of their second single, also called Acid Washed, with remixes by Mickey Moonlight and The Hacker.
I’m not showing off, I’m saying you can have one too, if you like. IF… you answer the following question:
What would you rather do:
(a) wash in hydrochloric acid
(b) take acid whilst watching this man wash
Answers below please. Let me know whether you prefer CD or vinyl.
EDIT: I probably should have specified that I only have two of each so I went for the first-come-first-served basis. Vinyl/CDs should be winging their way to the first names now. Sorry, it’s always a bastard, that one. Plenty more competitions to come though…
Acid Washed are playing Death Disco this Saturday with Yuksek and Visions Of Trees.
