    A little while back i was playing at a rave and some guy... who i thought at the time was just some random crack head looking geeza..... anyway... he start chattin to me and to be honest i kinda dismissed him as being a bit of a bonehead just wanting to chat shit to me about how good they think Original Nuttah or Chopper is.... i wasnt feelin to good nore was i up for small talk after 2hours of mixin.

    So.... anyway...... it turned out to be Klashnekoff.... who if you know about UK Hip-Hop is apparently really well known??


    Got me thinking..... How many peeps must i walk past that could be famouse in other scenes with out me noticing it..... its weird.

    If Nicky Black walked past id know straight away....... but so many other people wouldnt have a clue.... same with Andy C..... and to us he's huge!! but to my GF for instance she wouldnt have a clue who he was if he walked past her.....

    I'd been friends with a mate of mine, who dj'd DnB for a few years, then one day found out that he was the guitarist in this huge 80's straight edge punk band, toured the states, the lot...

    Another time I was sitting with a mate on the bus and he was chatting about his old band, then he mentioned something about "their firat album" turns out his band was pretty big too - post roack band who had played all around the world and had recorded with Mogwai..

    Just goes to show how hard it is to recobnise people from other scenes - these people were my mates and I didn't even know!

    Once went to house party after a people under the stairs gig, then they turned up just as we were getting there...
