Bin Ravin’? Feeling a bit dead? Better read this then!

Hullo folks – hope you are feeling a bit more chipper as the weekend looms! I imagine it was a wee bit of struggle this week after the 2 bank hols! So… Anyway.. Come on! hands up! Who fell asleep in the cubicles at work using the toilet roll as a pillow?! Hmmm? Who blamed the tubes/engineering works/the bus for being late every morning? which one of you lied and said your flatmate had locked you in the flat/your washing machine had flooded the kitchen and you had to wait for the plumber, so you could get extra hour in bed?, Who kept jumping and looking round while sat at their desk as they kept thinking someone was behind them? (para the boss was watching you on facebook chat!?)  And who kept thinking the person across from your desk was speaking to you all the time, then realised they weren’t? WHO walked around the office with a “fax” or a folder in their hand so it looked like they were doing something? Who got caught on Facebook ALOT? And who did the thing on the tube when you fall asleep and wake up when you head bobs down to your chest? Was it you? Hmmmmmm? To pep you up here are this weeks podcasts:

“To celebrate the launch of Round Table Knights’ new album, Counter Culture are throwing a huge party at London’s Crucifix Lane – a warehouse-style night time venue tucked in the arches beneath London Bridge station.

In a land that has no ego and a table that has no head, Round Table Knights are constantly pushing their talents as DJs and Producers to the limits and evolving with the output.  Hailing from Bern, Switzerland, the bearded crusaders were originally open-minded turntablists with a penchant for hip-hop, rock, electro and jazz.  Melting all those things together and more they have crafted a debut album on Jesse Rose’s Made To Play that has won fans including Claude von Stroke and Catz & Dogz and plays out like a DJ mix… it’s a special album and this night is sure to be a special party.”
