Bella ciao, Iran

August 1st, 2009

A fantastic tune by Pesare Bad critising the current Iranian regime.

Earlier tonight I watched a documentary by Alex Jones, the American film maker/talk show host. The film is called The Obama Deception and explains that the new president is pretty much a puppet taking orders from Wall Street (the banks).

Lots of people would dismiss Alex Jones and other info warriors and label them conspiracy theory nut-heads but I more or less agree with the facts presented in this movie although some of it is very hard to swallow. Also, seeing Mr Jones raving on for parts of the movie is a little off-putting – I’m not being disrespectful but it’s a just too much hearing him shout at the Bilderberg members through a megaphone for 5 minutes.

After watching the movie, I decided to make a mp3 mix while I was a little inspired by the whole Obama thing. I started with a beautiful track by Nina Simone followed by some Dub, D&B and rock tracks. The music then moves on to some funky techno.

The beat matching of the dance tracks is not great (I haven’t played for almost 3 months – even then I wasn’t that good!) but I do like most of music.

If anyone is interested, I can get a track listing sorted. Hope you enjoy it (click the play button below).

Sometimes you happen to come across a great tune – this one happens to be from an Iranian artist living in the US. There are lots of awful/average Iranian ‘rappers’ out there but this is truly amazing.

Don Cavalli/Don Cavilli

April 17th, 2008

I was listening to WFMU when they played a track by Don Cavilli called “New Hollywood Babylon ” which grabbed my attention. I couldn’t track it down anywhere but I did find “Going To A River” by Don Cavalli on YouTube. I’m hoping this is the same Don on WFMU – if not, this is still a great track. Enjoy.
