Junkateer – A popular beat combo!
Formed a year and half ago from the bloated corpses of various underground bands like Magoo, Supercharger and the tragically under-achieving IDIOT JOY, JUNKATEER are a band with many sources and many influences. From dirty deep house (members have releases on Drop, Bolshi and Rubberneck to name but a few) to Beefheart and the Velvets to Dub, Free Jazz, Disco, blah blah blah…all used to create their raw, experimental groove. Currently embarking on a string of dates in London, Bristol, Nottingham, Manchester and festivals throughout 2002.
“Fantastic combo, dismembered funk not done in that pony tail way but as it should be; raw, syncopated and utterely uplifting” TimeOut
“Groove-obsessed quartet with a slice of funk a mile wide…” The Guardian
So, there you have it. These chaps where from Nottingham, when we did the ‘All Systems’ gigs. Trying to raise fund and awareness about the onset of the Criminal Justise Act 1994 [CJA]. But then they were “Idiot Joy”. http://www.junkateer.co.uk/idiot_joy.htm

They have some of my snaps of them at the gigs in the Marcus Garvey Centre, Nottingham at: http://www.junkateer.co.uk/idiot_joy_photos.htm[though not credited, of course!].

fuckin hell tash yr being a bit too obsessed about getting paid for your stuff. hay its realy great you have done this sight but isnt the ideolagy here one of anti capatalism? i always thought it was when i was at these places. i know we all need to make a living but the emphasis should be on living not on money. i know it may piss you off to here this but you know what you know and i hope you can be true to that. dont think me rude, as wilkshire police did but if i want to use your pics i just will. i wont patronise you by saying my thanks will be your pay, but you will know i thank you

Really, I get the odd one like this. 8 years as an ambulanceman, 30 years direct involvemnet in founding and working in festival and traveller based charities, advocacy, representing folks in court, evidence, and continued work for ‘good causes’. And this chap thinks that charging for labour IS capitalism. Silly man!!
So then, Stevie K added his 9pence worth today

I’m one of the man’s greatest fans. I like so much of the different styles he’s produced. He is famous for imperial ‘the king is great’ type music, but i think some of these are soo sensitive. I put them on my server to share here.
[128kbs, so depending on your modem, might be best to ‘right-click’, then ‘save target’ to disk and then play]
I would like to hear ‘As Steals the Morn upon the Night’ over a quality system at Stonehenge on solstice morn!! What would the papers say about that?
A few pieces I’m listening to now ::
Handel – As Steals the Morn upon the Night
Handel – Where’er you walk
Handel – Ombra mai fu
Handel – Messiah – I Know That My Redeemer Liveth
oh, and this is the noisy stuff he’s good at 🙂
I used this piece, in a couple of slide shows on the Mayday Protests in Parliament Square, London
Handel – Zadok The Priest
Mayday2000 protest, London

An earlier blog entry, related to this at:
Mobile masts- part of the way ‘location data’ is administered.
One of my interests here, is the growing use of ‘location data’ by law enforcement. As most people have a mobile phone, it may well end up that we can become ‘electronically tagged’ to a higher standard than we are already.
