Late Late Night: well, I guess my login still works

Howdy folks.  Patrick Rex here, filling on for TRex on the Late Late Night post.

TRex really, really loves Amy Winehouse, as he has made abundantly clear here lately.

I can't say I blame him… I have done a lot of session work these past few years.  I wouldn't mind playing drums behind a soul singer with a crack band.    

I was in London last fall for two weeks, off and on, for a gig.  It was fantastic.  I discovered loads of interesting music in addition to lovely Ms. Winehouse.  A lot of it was being done on laptops, interestingly.  

I am completely head over heels over this clip

I don't really know a thing about these guys, but I love this track.  For those of you who need a bit of a touchup on some of the cultural references: NME used to be a great music magazine.  Lately, not so much. Stephen Fry is a very witty and arch British Comedian.  The reason Thou Shalt Not buy coca-cola products is because of their horrible labor pratices.  Nestle does some pretty terrible stuff involving baby formula and impoverished nations, as well. 

I have no idea what Hollyoaks is , though it appears to be a television show.  

The Four Elements of hip hop :   MCing (rapping), DJing, urban inspired art/tagging (graffiti), b-boying (or breakdancing, to most), and beatboxing.

"Is it?" – I have no idea.  Same with the spelling of Phoenix/Pheonix. There's a controversy over that?

Anyway, watching this video made me really, really want to go back to London.  

 Enjoy!
