Hands Up: Joystick Japes: Evil Sucks: Bully For You
"There has never been any guidance or standards in door supervisors'
aining. They tend to pick up their skills from the world of martial arts
or the street and people are getting hurt as a result." (Guardian)
Conflict specialist company boss Bill Fox announces plans to train bouncers
how to use handcuffs.
"It was his best asset and gave me so much pleasure. I wanted to pickle it
for eternity - he would have wanted it. We called it his joystick. I wanted
it to remember him by." (The Sun)
Stuttgart widow Uta Schneider, 65, tells police why she chopped off her
husband¹s willy after he died in hospital (she currently waits trial on
"Work sucks... school sucks... life sucks." *(BBC)
Canadian Columbine Massacre copycat killer Kimveer Gill writes his
philosophy on a Gothic website, before going on a college shooting rampage
in which he killed one and wounded 19 others.
"Everybody gets bullied at least once in their life. How you react to it
shapes your destiny. Some are crushed irreparably. Others turn into bullies
themselves. I responded by developing an incredibly strong streak and later
by creating a fantasy world I¹d be happy in: my clubs." (Sunday Times)

Skrufff Top 5:
1: Spank Rock: Bump (Switch mix)
OFoul-mouthed sex rhymes¹ and Oall the female filth you could want¹ (Spank
Rock¹s telling-it-as-it-is press release) combine with Switch¹s rock hard
filthy rhythms and amazingly groovy beats for this fantastic hip hop monster
of a tune that¹s sure to be massive. 10 out of F**King ten.
2: John Dahlbäck Flatfoot Can¹t Dance EP
20 year old Swedish wunderkid producer John Dahlback eclipses his older
cousin Jesper still further, with three more finely crafted electro-house DJ
tools. With its ominous dark synth stabs, opener Flatfoot Can¹t Dance has
more of an electro-tech vibe, while Snowman pursues a housier, (though still
thumping vein). King Kong, like the other two instrumental is the pick of
the bunch and most in synch with his recent productions as Huggatron.
3: Telex: Do Worry (Lindstrom Remix)
I Feel Space star Lindstrom delivers the best mix of Telex¹s new single,
creating a 10 minute I Feel Love Moroder style electro disco anthem that
pumps along for ten minutes (though without any vocals.) Dark, moody and not bad.
4: K Language: All this time/Priceless Things EP (Yuksek versus Invaders)
Plastik electro-tech type producer Yuksek teams up with the Invaders to
create an initially glitchy broken beat Justice style rework that half way
through suddenly rocks out in a guitar frenzy of powerchords and slamming
beats. Also included on the 6 track EP is a new (somewhat superfluous)
version of K Language¹s 2005 club hit The Message.
5: Fad Gadget By Frank Tovey (Album Of The Week)
70s/ 80s electronic pioneer Fad Gadget (aka Francis John Tovey) died
suddenly aged 46, just as his music was being reclaimed by the electroclash
scene though four years later as electroclash fades away, his music lives
on, repackaged here in a 2 CD/ 2 DVD definitive package. Including all his
best bits (Back To Nature, Ricky¹s Hand, Collapsing New People, Ladyshave etc) the collection also includes an exclusive new documentary plus footage from 80s New York hotspot the Mudd Club, Manchester¹s Hacienda and his last London show at the Garage, just months before his death. Out now.
