So the Klaxons won the Mercury Album award for Golden Skans, surprisingly piping “Back To Black” Amy’s finest “Soul” album in years (if you only buy your Soul CD’s from ASDA).
Actually that’s way too bitchy, its a decent album, and I only mention the Mercurys as a hamfisted link into promoting Akira The Don’s new mix CD which features those kings of nu-rave The Klaxons. As is the case with all things Akira, “Stunners 130” is worth buying for the song titles alone e.g. “If I Was S’Express I’d Fucking Sue The Klaxons”.

Over the course of an hour it crams in Queen, Spiritulized, Ludicrous, Robbie Williams, and a whole load more… not to mention some Akira The Don. Modestly self proclaimed as the best mixtape ever, it comes “guaranteed to ignite a party in even the most depressing circumstances* (*except Mondays)”. Its lairy, loud, and thankfully far more student house party than over polished Ministry Of Sound muzak.

My CD came with a free badge, and a note apologising for the delay in sending the CD but explaining he’d been in Homerton hospital.

Grab a copy now, possibly without a free badge but for only £5 from his Myspace.

If you really want to guarantee strange looks in the street why not also buy Akira’s “Thanks For All The AIDS” t-shirt.Thanks For All The Aids” was one of my favourite tracks of 2006, and you wont hear a better Live Aid pisstake, but I’m too big a coward to wear this thing in public. Should you with to start a debate/argument everytime you enter a room, order one here. Visit Youtube to see how pleased Akira was when the box of T’s turned up.

BOOTY

The usual dramas at the MTV music awards, Kanye threw his Versace’s out of the pram after missing out again, two of Pammies Ex’s had a full on handbag fight (probably over who’s sex tape was better), and the slightly sad unravelling of Britney continued as she stumbled, mumbled and generally looked like the last place on earth she should be right now is on stage (YouTube). While she disintegrated, her former squeeze The Trousersnake swept the board with 5 awards.

Not only that but he gets all the best mash-ups too. Tyler Fedchuk’s inspired bootleg finds Justin getting his sexy on with Brighton’s finest purveyors of Electro funk, Metronomy. I know Bastard Pop is so 2005, but who cares this stuff is fantastic.
