In da social club - Transition Town


With so much drama in the l-b-c [Lewisham Borough Council]
Its kinda hard bein-a snoop for the double-T
But they, somehow, some way
Keep comin up with funky ass shit like every single day

FLUX CLUB, Sat 14th November 7pm-1am, Brockley Social Club, £6
Hosted by Transition Town Brockley

It's gettin hot in here, so let's swish all our clothes.

Get ready to transform your old world into a new one, through magic, music, miracle and muse! Bring your old stuff and let the magic of El Mago Javier transform it into something new.

Funk/rock outfit Grand Illusion will have you swinging from the rafters, while Djs Saffrolla, Mr Burns and Bearjamm ply you with Balkan Beats, Swing, Funky Latin, HipHop, Breakbeat and more...

Transition Towns are on our streets, trying to consume
Less carbon dioxide, by insulating homes

Prepare to encounter the Transition Wheel of Fortune, The Forever Tree and ideas so transformative you may even go home a different person...

With thanks to Snoop, Nelly and Warren G - the original Transition Towners.

Nick, have you been drinking or are you just trying to widen Brockley central's appeal to include "the kids"?

uncles dancing at weddings spring to mind

I'm a 26 year old who is actually looking forward to this event, and would have only found out about it from this blog. So if I'm classed as one of 'the kids', then I'll be taking that as a compliment. Thanks for this update Nick and don't be afraid to publish more like it!

@BK - Gin and Juice and Regulate were released in '94.

Sadly, any kids who were in to them were probably at home on Sunday night, trying to amuse themselves during X Factor by re-writing lyrics about driving around and conspicuously consuming, to fit the Transition Towns agenda.

I couldnt understand this story, and i am only 31, so hardly past it i hope. What exactly is it about, a club night in the social club in aid of energy saving?

Brockley Nick said...

Yes, that's exactly it. You are still down.

Paddyom said...

Respek.

it's all a load of misogynistic crap anyway

@ love detective

A little bit of a sweeping generalisation don't you think?

love detective said...

you don't think snoop doggy dog/snoop dog's lyrics are shot through with misogyny?

i posted up a line from the same song as nick had used in the blog post and it was promptly deleted, to which i replied it's all misogynistic crap anyway

this for example from the same song nick used

I got bitches in the living room gettin it on

But (but what) we don't love them hoes, yeah!

And get to mackin to this bitch named sadie (sadie? )

She used to be the homeboys lady (oh, that bitch)

Eighty degrees, when I tell that bitch please

Raise up off these n-u-ts, cause you gets none of these

Dre got some bitches from the city of compton

To serve me, not with a cherry on top

Cause when I bust my nut, Im raisin up off the cot

Don't get upset girl, that's just how it goes

I don't love you hoes, Im out the do

Really not feeling the racist undertones to your posts:(..

@love detective.

Yes some hip hop/rap stars have made misogynist songs, but it's absolutely ridiculous to say that 'it's all a load of misogynistic' crap.

love detective said...

"Really not feeling the racist undertones to your posts:(.."

not sure if you're serious or not, but this is the kind of attitude/approach (mainly by white middle class liberals) that meant criticism of the homophobic/misogynist slant of a lot of hip hop music was silenced - it's a pretty disingenuous and cowardly (not to mention racist) approach to take to be honest

"Yes some hip hop/rap stars have made misogynist songs, but it's absolutely ridiculous to say that 'it's all a load of misogynistic' crap"

as my post above explains, the reference was in relation to snoop dog's output

Paddyom said...

I consider the lyrics to a lot of rap and hip-hop music to be so crass and completely disrepectful. I blame it for the arrogance and agression in lots of todays kids. I mean what is that gun symbol a lot of them pull with their hands? Whatever happened to singing about positive stuff like the Black Eyed Peas do? thats far more appealing to me.
