Hard-Fi: Hometown Hi-Fi

Here's a band that I kinda started liking until they released that Cash Machine track and they went down in my estimation! Despite that, this mix by their tour DJ WrongTom has a eclectic mix of indie, house, reggae and hip-hop - something that I wouldn't necessarily identify with their style of music. Their new album seems to be causing a fuss all over their choice of artwork (or lack of it), it stinks of laziness to me instead of being the new "White Album". Given away free with the June 2006 issue of Mixmag.

1 Billy Bragg - A New England
2 The Nextmen - Blood Fire

3 Harry J. All Stars - Liquidator (Trojan Sound System Mix)

4 Hard-Fi - Dubbed Up Too Tight

5 Ricky Ranking & Roots Manuva - Doogoo Machine

6 Eek-A-Mouse - Wa Do Dem

7 Danger Mouse & Jemini - Ghetto Pop Life

8 Coldcut - True Skool (Spank Rock Remix)

9 Jimmy Screech - Live Love And Learn

10 The Kills - No Wow (MSTRKRFT Remix)

11 Franz Ferdinand - The Fallen (Ruined By Justice)

12 Uffie - Ready To Uff

13a Spank Rock - Rick Rubin

13b Hard-Fi - Hard To Beat (Acappella)

14 Joe Smooth - Promised Land

Hard-Fi: Hometown Hi-Fi (Part One)
Hard-Fi: Hometown Hi-Fi (Part Two)

Little note at bottom bit: I'd say sorry for the lack of posting but I'm not really - sometimes I just can't be arsed with it! (especially seeing that my computer is so wank - it's crashed twice just trying to complete this post). Although I am sorry that I don't have enough time to do this as often as I'd like. This blog had a mention in The Guardian Guide which should have got my arse into gear but didn't! Anyway I've got a bit more time on my hands now my girlfriend has left me to go travelling so hopefully the posts will be more frequent than 3 months apart...
