Richie Pengelley, a man unafraid to write in capitals throws down after weeks of me hassling him to do the mix and then weeks of him hassling me to get it on the blog its finally, finally here..."ELECTRONIC MEMORIES & HUMAN WORDS" behold the genius that is La Penge...

"I couldn't see properly when he asked me, yet alone hear, the cheap plastic
disco light was pointing directly into my retinas and the over-amped
speakers were stretching the hyman out of the bass cones, You What? i spat
back at him as I was bustled by some dire freak show who was trying to
squeeze by. Would you be up for doing a mix tape for my blog? The freak
show, who must have hit every branch when she fell out of the ugly tree, was
now grinding past Leo and as the light hit her all you could see was this
bulldog chewing a wasp. Rank. I managed to digest the information while my
burnt retinas brought the after party into focus, replying, Shitbox really?
I don't think I have enough, you know, spacey peyote smoking out there,
stuff to fill a mix tape, my stuff is a little more on the electronic
wackness tip. We edge away from freak show who has now started to drench
some unsuspecting victim in halitosis odoured spittle, she was in her prime
fifty years ago maybe but tonight she looked like a reject from fragil rock.
no worries it's cool, anything goes Leo says, its wide open, ok I reply, I'd
love to. It's been a while. As I start to contemplate this new endeavor, the
freak show begins to head back towards us, her jaw grinding and carving out
a route for her through the crowd, bodies flying left and right, her eyes
dead and lifeless look like satans arseholes. Leo turns and we say in
unison, We should go."

LA PENGE is the brainchild of Ricardo Suavez and Kinky Rich,this is his 1st
mix tape since 1993 and as you can see he has not really bought many records since then. This mix tape has a little bit of everything on it, some old records which made his head turn in early £3.99 warehouse parties while drinking TOP DECK, some new stuff which is interesting and energetic plus some timeless classics which will live longer now one can USB ones vinyl. Adding to this multifarious collection are a few film quotes and a youthful vigour which was brought back to life for the 70 minutes or so.
