"Earth calling Tom Cruise, Earth calling Tom Cruise."
OK, so this is not the usual kind of video that we link to but think of this as a public service. We have a right to know, what narcotics are these Scientologists handing out with KSW?

Awesome bass line intro for All Lined Up from Shriekback in the video. Interesting stockpiling of nitro-keg lager should the apocalypse catch the band unawares.
Shriekback - My Spine (Is The Bassline)
Marvin Gaye - I Want You (Vocal)
NoMo Heroes - Rub Me Hard (Agentss remake)

Do we have a real treat for you guys today?
After Jez Proctor kindly invited us over to the awesome Innersounds for a quick chat and a virtual brew we thought it would be nice to return the favour.
So for the first mix in a brand new series it is a pleasure to introduce Jez's Ugly Talented mix which, as you can see from the great selection below, is a trip which moves effortlessly from mellow to groovy via boompty boomp.
For the few who haven't been over to Innersounds yet then make sure to set your cursors to download as there is always loads of fantastic tunes to, erm, borrow. Jez can also be found over at DJ History where, if memory serves, he recently had a music (not music) scene named after him.
Download here and enjoy...
