Say hello to Lull. He’s the geezer who has done an amazing Music Box & Tears remix of Bloc Party’s “I Still Remember” (and he’s also done a good job on the ace I Was A Cub Scout’s “Pink Squares”). His own tunes are also impressive, if you’re into slow-motion electronica.

No-one else rants or raves like Bob Lefsetz when it comes to the music business. Here, he compiles the blame report for the latest death of hip-hop. No need to call in Bobby Goren to help with this one.

Miranda Sawyer’s smart guide to internet radio from The Observer. Memo to RTE: whatever happened to the great digital leap forward?

Free the Duke! Download “When The Bear Bites”, a free five-track sampler from the mighty Duke Special.

Aiiiiiight. Forget The Sopranos, the best TV series on the box is The Wire. Props to TG4 for getting their mitts on Series 4 before anyone else on this side of the Atlantic (it’s in full swing on Mondays at 11.25pm) – just lets hope they don’t do what RTE would do with it and start shoving it round the schedules without telling anyone. For those who’s slept on this piece of TV genius from the streets of B-More, you can play catch-up on DVD and realise why no-one needs the Bada Bing when you’ve got Orlando’s.
