Minotaur Shock Mix Madness...

No stories or news today...I can't be assed. He is an image of my man Crouchy doing this business earlier today in Japan. We'll play Sao Paulo in the final... big deal.

In other news: Dickhead at Parkhead? wow. He and John Hartson on the same team...shit. Its only a matter of time until Duncan Ferguson joins them.

OK.. Music bonus today. The best mix this year come to us from Dave Edwards, who is no other than the mind behind Minotaur Shock :

Bristol-based multi-instrumentalist/programmer David Edwards, aka Minotaur Shock, creates pretty, folk-tinged electronica along the lines of Four Tet and Boards of Canada. His debut EP, 2000's Bagatelle, was one of the first releases from the U.K. indie electronic imprint Melodic; the following year's Motoring Britain EP and full-length Chiff-Chaffs & Willow Warblers reflected the move from the colder, harder-edged IDM of the '90s to the softer, more organic style of the early 2000s. 2002 saw the release of the Rockpoolin' EP, which introduced a more melodic take on the Minotaur Shock sound, the 2003 compilation Rinse collected Edwards' vinyl-only EPs onto CD. Minotaur Shock moved to 4AD for 2005's Vigo Bay EP and Maritime full-length, both of which were influenced by Edwards' love of the seaside and sleek '80s pop like Steely Dan and Hall & Oates.

This was a mix-promo that was released in VERY LIMITED quantites by his new label 4AD.
