Protocol have an interesting article on Netflix’s gaming ambitions, which have hardly been a success to date. Devoid of any blockbuster title, the service has
Revenge of Calculon – incredible musically and visually! Check out their video for debut single “X, Y and Z Rays”.
The Roli Seaboard is a truly remarkable musical instrument (arguably a control surface). This would sit nicely on my desk beside the EWI 5000.
This ZX Spectrum + 2 USB keyboard appeals hugely to my nostalgic side.
Love this poster by Mohammad Diba for The Collaborative Orchestra. Sadly Mohammad Diba doesn’t appear to have a portfolio or any further work online.
I haven’t listened to The Gentleman Rhymer’s music yet, but the cover to hist latest album is exceptional!
If you’re in London, head over to Gilgamesh in Camden Town to see Soul Grenades dish out some funk, free-of-charge . For details and to sign-up to the guest list, please click here .
The UGLYDOLL family are an adorable bunch!
The Milkmaid is a smart milk jug, with an associated iPhone app that allow you to monitor the milk’s pH-level, temperature and volume. As clever as it is unnecessary.
Gregory Porter’s critically-acclaimed new album Be Good is a as enjoyable for its music as its cover. Mr Porter wears some fine duds, along with
Stumbled across this great video of the legendary Marva Whitney. I’ve loved the song for years, so it’s a real treat to find this. It’s
Great photography of Third Coast Kings to celebrate their equally great debut album.
The great Jimmy Castor is no longer of this earth. … If the unlikely event there’s a heaven, it just got a whole lot funkier.
This MacBook Air compact mirror is very cute, despite being held by a man.
A warm welcome to our new Project Manager interns. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
It would grace any home, desk, toilet, airport lounge… you name it. … I for one will be binning my iPad and iPhone as soon as I get home.
It breaks my heart to hear that the legendary Sylvester Stewart, better known as Sly Stone , is living out of a caravan in Los Angeles . Sly – in the unlikely event that you read this – my spare room is yours any time, in the unlikely event that you fancy Eltham in south east London in preference to LA.
The ideal music solution for your jungle retreat . Digging that Tarzan vibe.
Countless images of vinyl, record collections and associated paraphernalia.
After a 30-year recording hiatus, Sly Stone’s much-anticipated new album really couldn’t be more disappointing. … Family and Friends is an embarrassing re-hash of classic songs that it is sacrilegious to rerecord.
The keys on Bernie Worrell’s clavinet are decorated with pages from old comic books. One more reason to love the legendary musician.

This post on Belgraded reminds me that I should revisit my dusty old collection of Yugoslav vinyl.
The Pickmaster Plectrum Punch is an ingenious device that creates guitar picks from plastic or cardboard. If only somebody could design a similar device that creates usable saxophone reeds, I’d be a happy man indeed.
I can’t stop listening to Chic , whether it’s their own material or the sublime offerings produced by The Chic Organization. Good Times indeed, for all The Family !
Working Lalo Schifrin ‘s (a hero of mine) Bullitt soundtrack hard this morning.
Dear John , the new magazine for men, written exclusively by women (though edited by the brilliant Conor Creighton).
Bossa Nova – a compilation of the best bossa nova record sleeves (well, the best according to Giles Peterson and Stuart Baker). If there’s any justice in this world, Marcos Valle’s Provisao do Tempo will feature prominently.
I’d have cast someone much more evil-looking to play the pope, but it’s a nice ad nonetheless .
Sonny – you’re a giant of the tenor saxophone, we salute you. Now, about those free tickets for your gig at the Barbican…
