    The record features 15 tracks written and arranged by lyricist/singer, acoustic guitar player and front man Seth Faergoalzia. The record was Engineered and Mixed by Mark Ospovatat at Emandee Recording House, Brooklyn, New York.

    Dufus has graced the stage with such acts as Ween, Animal Collective, Moldy Peaches, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kool Kieth, Regina Spektor, Herman Dune, Dub Trio, Cerberus Shoal, Adam Green, Usaisamonster, Kimya Dawson, Jeffrey Lewis, Moe, John Brown’s Body, and the Black Dice.

  • Emerging contemporary artists from Coventry, Birmingham, Wolverhampton and the West Midlands will be among the first in the country to have samples of their current work permanently stored in the British Library music archive.

    This is because they have been selected for a new website which showcases the very best new independent music from the West Midlands.

    The PILOT PROJECT website – www.pilot-project.co.uk – went live Thursday, November 18 in Birmingham, at 7pm.

    Music on the site will be accessible to stream, and the site database is fully searchable. The music and data will also be stored permanently in the British Library’s music archive as part of the British Library’s New Music Network. This aims to document contemporary British independent music of all types as it is made available through websites, blogs and other digital platforms.

  • One of the most charismatic and theatrical of the new wave of British folk bands hits the road in support of their acclaimed, self-titled debut album on Balling The Jack Records.

    The band have shared stages, recordings, and personnel with the likes of Mumford & Sons (Ted Dwane of the Mumfords was their bassist) Noisettes, Mystery Jets, Band of Skulls (Emma Richardson guests on their album), and even the Ting Tings

    They have played Glastonbury, Bestival and Summer Sundae amongst many others. They have busked across Europe and led music workshops with kids in Bosnia. They have enchanted twenty-odd festivals this summer – as well as performing gigs on boats; with a 100-voice choir; up a Maltese mountain and in their own back garden.

1 Big Smoke – Birmingham, 6th November 2010 at 12pm Victoria Square, Birmingham, UK

November 4, 2010

Birmingham, Victoria Square, November 6th 12pm til 4pm. Here’s an update on 1 big smoke take 4. There is a 1 Big Smoke Facebook page here

1 Big Smoke - Birmingham, 6th November 2010 at 12pm Victoria Square, Birmingham, UK

News from Colin: “BBC3 have said they are coming to do video footage for a doc they are airing next year. Almost 200 attending from all over the UK. The biggest cannabis community gathering Birmingham has ever seen. Keep spreading the whole cannabis hemp truth and nothing but the whole cannabis hemp truth.”

Here are the aims, principles and proposals from http://www.lca-uk.org

PRINCIPLES
We believe the use of cannabis ought to be a matter of choice and not of law.

We believe that the prohibition of cannabis is against the public interest.

We believe that the prohibition of cannabis contravenes Human Rights.

We believe that the prohibition of cannabis inhibits the use of a beneficial resource.

We believe that the legalisation of cannabis is a very important step that should be taken to benefit the people and their environment.

AIMS
To hasten the full legalisation and utilisation of the cannabis plant for the good of the peoples of this world, on a local, national and international level.

To secure the release of all prisoners convicted only of cannabis offences and to ensure that all criminal records for cannabis offences are expunged.

To encourage public and private research into the many beneficial uses of cannabis including industrial, social and medical uses for the good of the people
.

To halt all criminal prosecutions for the use of cannabis as a social or private relaxant including its uses as a sacrament or in religious or other ritual.

To provide a voice for those in society persecuted and prosecuted for cannabis activities that victimise none.

PROPOSALS
That cannabis and cannabis products should be removed from the UK Misuse of Drugs Act, thereby being legalised.

That the possession, cultivation and use of pure cannabis and cannabis products be free from prosecution

That cannabis be re-introduced into our society.

That high priority be given to the cultivation of cannabis for the express purpose of the localised production of virtually cost-free fuels through the process of pyrolysis on cannabis biomass, and as a source of fibre and hurd.

That provision be made to enable the setting up of public establishments where the use of cannabis is permitted.

That provision be made to enable the setting up of outlets for the legal supply of cannabis.

That at least the same level of protection be given to the cannabis consumer as is given to the consumers of other commodities: weights and measures, quality etc.

That all prisoners presently held only on cannabis convictions or charges be released from custody without delay and that all criminal records for cannabis offences be expunged.
