It Has To Start Somewhere…

“I don’t care much about music. What I like is sounds.”
Dizzy Gillespie 

This says it all in my opinion (and I must express, it is only an opinion).  I have always struggled to contemplate and conclude what style of music I am into.  Granted this only really occurs when someone asks me that question, usually when I’m stood listening to an act or DJ.  “This perhaps” maybe is what I should be shouting but my calmness grabs a hold of me at the last second and holds me back.  Surely the obvious question should be “what are you NOT into”?

But this is the thing, I have never known what I am into and it’s down to what Dizzy put so correctly……  Sounds!  My missus will be the first to tell you this as every ally, passage tunnel or otherwise you will find me clapping frantically like a 7 year old sponsored by Tate & Lyle – simply to check the level of reverb.  How will this sound???  It’s stupid because I know already, yet it still overcomes me like an obsession.  My music will hopefully tell you this.  I am not one for doing what other people are doing.  Partly due to my leisure pursuit of being a recluse, but also because I want to make make music for no other reason than I really enjoy it. 

I must apologise for my manners.  Hello!  This is the blog for Itchy Pig Records.  A place where you will find songs, acts and artists alike based around what I like.  It is not a blog to feature only the labels own stuff.  I will be showcasing all varying types of madness, sounds and groove.  Some you may like and some that probably isn’t for you, however hopefully you will at least see where I am coming from.

I will end this entry and start this blog with a track from The Mythical Beasts (Toby Tobias & Felix Dickinson) called Communicate. 

Ciao for now and welcome to the pleasure home
