Went on a day out (the only way of really getting away from the
studio) to Southwold on Saturday in the pouring rain. The perfect
weather for a day in the home-town of Adnams
. First stop The
for a coffee and a warm-up by the fire.
A paddle along the main street then to The Lord Nelson for lunch
and a glass of special cough medicine. In the winter Adnams brew
what they call "Old Ale" (right).

You Don't Know - The Sarah Mac
From their EP Countdown to Silence.
This trio serves up an impossible to categorize, but easy to listen
to blend of styles that is refreshing and honest. The combination
of exceptional vocal lines, intricate guitar work and
funk-influenced bass lines converge into a sound that has to be
heard to be believed.
There have been a number of rumors circulating via the internet and
other types of media about the SMB. (If you have not heard these

Tale of Goat - Secret Archives of the
From the album Babylon
Louis and Vince, this track features Marion Davis on violin and
Emma Bentham on flute.
Louis met Vince back in 1987 and was a fan of Secret Archives of
the Vatican's tape releases from the very first one in
1989. In 1996 Louis started working with Vince on some tracks
for a live set at the Cross Rhythms festival.
The London-based collective is making eclectic transglobal beats
with a dub, South-Asian and Arabian breakbeat triphop flavour. Have
released many private recordings as well as contributing to
compilations in Europe and US. Have had radio play in over 20
countries and have played at several festivals.
Secret Archives played live in London in December at the Costa
Urbana event in Notting Hill Arts Club. It was a great gig, with an
up-for-it crowd and a full-on party vibe!
Our two regular percussionists, Tom Gregory and Paul Midgley met
for the first time - on stage! - and shook the house with a
barrage of darabuka and bendir grooves.
