The soundtrack we're playing on Ears Have Ears: Unexplored Territories In Sound FBi Radio tonight if off the hook excellent! It's called 'WANKING YR LIFE AWAY' and was made by The Sunset Flips aka Crabby Bogman from Altered States Tapes in Melbourne and Moocow Leetchskins from the Grog Pappy label in Newcastle. Noise, lo fi tape chaos clocking in at 24 mins. Definitely something my 20 year old self would've loved to have discovered at that time, also great at this time. Can't wait to play it!

It's inspired by fictional wrestling characters, made with tapes and electronics. Also this week, we've got 1 x double pass to giveaway to Samuel Kerridge live (Downwards / Horizontal Ground, UK) at the The Red Rattler Theatre this Saturday! 9pm tonight.

Nennat Omen is playing @ #Club Al Pacino #Kavadarci #Macedonia, Fri 05 Sep 2014 @ 23:45 http://www.nennatomen.com/ #gigs

Nennat Omen
Nennat Omen’s beginnings in his DJ-ing career start in 2003, with his first resident DJ parties. First, he shows off his skills at playing electro and acid house in Trac Café. After the great success of his parties, other clubs come in line for him. Scream Club, Square Pub, Logo Café, Fashion Café, Ice Café, Club Ice and Angels Café are those places and here, Nenad’s DJ-ing skills come to light and the audience gets to hear him playing.
In the beginning, Nennat Omen plays on CD, but from 2008, Nennat Omen decides it’s time to go old school with vinyl and timecode vinyl. From acid house and electro, Nennat Omen continues to progressive and electro house. As the years went by, his sets became more minimalistic and represent a mixture of minimal, techno minimal, deep and tech. His sets sound unique every time he plays, because he loves to experiment with samples, live editing and one of a kind effects from programs like Traktor Pro and Ableton live.
Besides being a DJ, Nennat Omen has been involved in various music projects. His first collaboration is with Dalibor Dadoff for the radio show “Night Vibes” which aired on “Street FM” back in 2005. During this partnership, Dalibor transfers his passion for playing on turntables to Nennat Omen. After “Street FM”, the radio show “Night Vibes” continues on local radios “UGD FM” and “Angels FM”. At the time, “Night Vibes” is the only radio show that goes live both in audio and in video format, something that is new for the audience not only in Stip, but in the whole country. Since then, “Night Vibes” has remained the synonym of a cult show that urban people enjoy listening. Many Macedonian DJs have been guests in the radio show, but a lot of foreign DJs have also showed what they know best. They were coming to play live sets from the studio.
Aside from Stip, Nennat Omen has been guest DJ in clubs and part of many music festivals like GreenFest, VelikDance, 5th Dimension, KaleFest etc. which are in some of the largest cities. The highlights of his whole career are the gigs in Chicago and New York, US (2012) and thanks to the success of his gigs in Belgrade, Serbia (2013) he has booked gigs for 2014 in various cities in Serbia.
He has shared the DJ Booth with a lot of local and worldwide famous DJs like Tomcraft, Marko Nastic, Mladen Tomic, Saso Recyd, Gramophonedzie ,Milos Vujovic, Vladimir Acic, Loco Baby, Lady Dee, Kerkez, Dadoff, Flooder, Nikifor etc.

It's summer, people. So, summer people should join us as the charcoal glows and we throw another chook on the barbie/ chair leg on the fire, depending on the weather (and your grasp of esoteric, pre-internet pop cultural references).

Guests include our new favourite novelist, KAMILA SHAMSIE, introducing us to our new favourite novel, 'A God In Every Stone'. NIKESH SHUKLA shows us that even old friends have the capacity to surprise with his truly remarkable new fiction, 'Meatspace'. We will also be joined by extremely talented VIV ALBERTINE, who will be reading from her memoir 'Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys.'

Come along. Even if the weather sucks, we won't be Angry Anderson.

Making a Single-Tab Peripheral Board
The first step to making a peripheral board is to take some standard 2.54mm prototyping board, and cut out the board with a cutting tool.

We’re making a Single-Tab board in this case.


Using a Template to cut the board

Once the board is cut, we add 2.54mm connectors to the bottom of the pcb and then solder them on. They need to be soldered to the bottom, not the top as the circuitry mostly sits hidden on the bottom side of the board.


Adding the connectors

After the connectors are added, two for power, two for input/output, all you need to do next is to add the rest of your circuit. That’s done by dropping the components onto the board and soldering them on the bottom as you would normally do.


Add your circuitry

This particular circuit ended up being an InfraRed receiver made with a cheap IR-Receiver sensor that I picked up when an electronics store was having a sale.

Using this process, it’s possible to make up circuits for pretty much any part you can find. If the part is too big, then you can use a double-tab board which is twice the size and gives more space.

Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer
On a one-man mission to introduce Hip-Hop to the Queen?s English, Mr. B is delighted to present Chap-Hop. Mr. B takes to the stage with his Banjolele and stiff upper lip to perform ditties of pipe-smoking, high society, Cricket and sexual misadventure, as well as some more well-known pieces from the world of Hip-Hop, re-worked in true Chap-Hop fashion.
His latest long player 'Can't Stop, Shan't Stop was released in November 2013 and he was once again named as one of the top things to see at Glastonbury 2014 by The Guardian, the Telegraph and others.

Wow have these guys been tearing it up with there fun energetic swing at the moment. Mr Tea and his musical little minions have smashed the festival circuit this year. We're really happy to have them back at the Lanes in full. All members of the band really work together to make an unmissable show!
