This is an experimental documentary produced by Henry Chalfont, the man behind the most stolen book in the history of UK publishing, about the early days of hip-hop in the South Bronx. Word.
Thanks to Dartos.

Sweet video from the Electric Elephant peoples for their forthcoming festival in the summer. Special props for using ‘Like A Ship’ by Pastor T.L. Barrett.
Thanks to Moonboots for the heads up.

This is special. It’s a film from the closing party of Amnesia in Ibiza, 3rd of October ’89. It’s probably the best thing I’ve seen for summing up what it was like. The club looks truly amazing, and Alfredo is the DJ (of course). There’s an Adamski live PA in the first clip and then on from there with Alfredo playing anything from Inner City to Bob Marley, Pink Floyd and Enya in the final clip. Classic.
Here’s a quality interview with Andrew Weatherall and Terry Farley about the history of Boy’s Own and the record label. Looks like it was done in the studio as they were recording the follow-up ‘Substance’. Weatherall dismisses techno in fine style, and the clip also features the videos for ‘Raise’ (as Terry calls it ‘a hillbilly balearic anthem for the summer’) and the Less Stress cover of ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’. London attitude in full flow.
Thanks to Nick Dart.

We posted this one before but it was terrible quality on YouTube so we’ve uploaded it again. This was the holy grail for many people and has been passed around on DVD for quite some time now. As many of you know it was a promotional video by the Ku nightclub in the mid 80s, has an amazing soundtrack (which may or may not have been an inspiration for one of Harvey’s most famous mixes), incredible scenery, great club shots and very balearic people.
Thanks to Phil Mison (originally) and Tim H on this one.
