A Sunday night odd sausage

It’s been another weekend of non-gardening as the weather’s been of the “something to be desired” variety but never mind, here’s a lovely tune from Monster Rally called Sunny Sloth that’ll make you smile! It’s off their new LP The Flowering Jungle released just last week. If you like nice exotic sunny type loops over lazy beats and catchy melodies that’ll stick in your mind, this set is for you. For further investigation have a look at their bandcamp page here. 

Those dahlias that have turned black due to frost damage that should’ve been pulled up over the weekend and dried off for winter storage will soon be forgotten about after listening to Monster Rally! #musicforgardenerswholovesunshine

Big shout to Rob from Yesmate a great music sharing platform for mixes and playlists (Mixcloud, Soundcloud, Youtube, Spotify, etc). You’ll definitely find something to keep you happy never mind what genre you’re into. We’ve been listening since the weekend to some fine mixes including the great Blundetto, Mixmaster Morris and Jon More. Log on…

David Mancuso’s been in our loft again…

The other day we rediscovered this mad old book/fanzine in the loft while getting the christmas decorations out. It’s 24 pages of home-made 7 inch record sleeves (the front and back covers of 12 singles) and originally purchased for a handful of shrapnel from a charity shop in Farringdon many many moons ago.

Any ideas on who or why? Any info appreciated, as “it’s daft as,” as a good council gardening mate of ours used to say. We at weeds love a record sleeve/label that has been defaced in the name of love (“to my number 1 man/woman” etc) so do send us examples of any you have in your collection.

Big up the defaced record sleeve. And whilst we’re here, a happy new year to all of our readers/gardening mates worldwide!
