i started having terrible insomnia since the pandemic began (still in self-imposed lockdown here in jakarta, and still no jabs). tried every cure from a dram or two (or three...) of whisky for a nightcap to those rain on a lake youtube vids, no go. this seemed to work for a while:

I used to have terrible insomnia Ooms from the age of 19ish to 30odd, friends would joke... well stop taking this and that, but it wasn't a laughing matter! it was fucking awful, i used to get borderline ocd with it... i'd convinced myself that numerous ridiculous criteria had to be met before i could nod off. Luckily for me i could just go to work at 3am... My kid being born broke the cycle, i still don't sleep well now (i can't drink tea or coffee after 2pm) but i'm not starring at cracks on the ceiling for 3hrs every flipping night.

Anyhow..

I used to be mildly obsessed with this song..

I can hear fre-co rolling his eyes from here ...so before i lose all cred

hello all fellow insomniacs...

been reading the wonderfully named Dan Sicko on emergence of Detroit techno; making a track list from chapter on some of the euro-disco influences... 

... thought to share and listen to it here...

 

Giorgio Moroder /Son of My Father

 

 

 

some Jacques Fred Petrus productions: 

Macho / I’m a Man

 

Vivian Vee ‘Give Me a Break’

 

Claudio Simonetti [of Goblin] / College [EP film soundtrack of cadet meets private school girl…]

 

Maurizio Dami / Alexander Robotnick / Problemes D’Amour

 

Liaisons Dangereuses / Los Ninos del Parque

 

Jean-Marc Cerrone / Love in C Minor [not particularly synth heavy; but apparently important for its open ended nature / structure...]

 

& not euro, but hey... 

YMO [for their take on Kraftwerk] / Technopolis

 

and yes: not included here but author makes claim of importance of them Sheffield locals: ABC, Heaven 17 and Human League... no time for them today; anyone else want to dig out something deeper than 'Penthouse and Pavements'...

Great stuff in there. I grew up listening to Krautrock and earlier (albeit not the earliest) synth/experimental bands in the late 70’s, and spent many listening hours catching up on those bands earlier releases.

From my perspective I would have said the Robotnick track was more ‘Kraftwerk’ in its approach - YMO were greatly impressed by Kraftwerk, but more to ensure not sounding like them. 

Anyway I think Martin has already posted ‘deeper than Penthouse & Pavements’ with Being Boiled but you could include Cabaret Voltaire in your Sheffield list

 

 

But here’s some Krautrock - it’s not primarily synth but they seemed to have been a great influence to the later synth bands

@Duke Mantee - glad you liked some: robotnick def among the favorites there... & heck yes to the krautrock [an aside grew up with a sibling playing a lot of gong and hawkwind in the sonic background ...]

& of course, all hail to Neu! and to the Japanese return to cosmic krautrock / prolonged psych ...

[a little super boredoms below for the superdenim meta factor...]

another aside... saw these guys doing this psych. score for legend of the overfiend back in the day... best was the nonchalant posturing of their keyboardist cotton casino wearing a tracksuit in the midst frantic victoriana-hippy-simulations... 

here she is playing the theremin [with 'make love... fuck war' stickers] in Newcastle...

Morning super-peeps, can someone offer some friendly advice to this analogue dinosaur.
 
Currently i have 1000's of CD's in cases up in my folks attic, there's also a few bits of Hi-Fi equipment too, i moved it all up there when my kid was young, it was on a homemade rack on the floor in our old house, i couldn't move it out of his way when he was a toddler because the living space was in the apex of the roof, exposed beams and such with no shelves, we had a bookcase but he used to climb up that... :rolleyes:
 
 I transferred 100's of CD's onto an old ipod-video so i could move it all out of his way, stuck the hi-fi in my folks attic for the foreseeable, during this time he knocked over a glass of cherry juice onto my old macbook while we were having a pillow/cushion fight destroying the motherboard so the ipod-video is synced to the old macbook so if i sync/update it to the new macbook i'll lose it all.. Ive got the HD in a transport but it's a mess picking through it..
 
Ive never used the itunes store so all of the music on the current macbook (no disk drive) is there from converting youtube to mp3 and making playlists/mixtapes, i transfer this onto a shuffle and play via Bose sounddock but the quality is somewhat rattly and bass heavy with no scope for adjustment. Now my kid has done with shoving his fingers in everything I'm considering re-introducing the hi-fi but i don't really want 1000's of cd's on display.. sadly i sold the speakers so while ive been searching for replacement speakers, ive spotted higher end wireless speakers so i'm considering splashing out on a pair of those instead and leaving the CD's in the attic.
 
The speakers work from either 'Apple AirPlay2, Siri, Spotify Connect, Tidal, Nas Drive, DLNA, Cloud or Bluetooth with Qualcomm apt' ??? Bluetooth aside, I haven't got a fucking clue how any of these things work, if i start reading up i'll fly off on some tangent as per usual and in a few weeks time i'll know every stupid detail and i'll end up spending more £££
I haven't got the time or inclination for either so can somebody just explain to me in the simplest of terms how one would play music from i-tunes via any of the above platforms?
 
Thx!

Neal, it’s easy to stream via Apple Play or Bluetooth - both use simple wireless connectivity, just pair your MacBook to the compatible speaker and you’re good to go. Probably a stupid question but does your Bose sound dock have a  USB connection so you could just plug your MacBook straight in?

Regarding your old iPod, you’ve probably Googled it already but there is a way of transferring the music on that to your Mac’s iTunes, I did it with mine years ago when my Old PowerBook was stolen in a burglary and I got a replacement via insurance. Obviously the difference is that you want to keep what’s already there so if that method overwrites the music in your Mac’s iTunes, you might have to move your existing library to a hard drive, reimport the music from your old iPod and then add the stuff back from the hard drive. Hopefully that makes sense!

Double o, I,m/was more or less in the same situation. We bought Harman Kardon Bluetooth WiFi speakers. I like the sound of it. But I don,t care to much for sound, as long I can recognize the song.

you need to upload a google home app on your device you want to use for playing music. We have 2 speakers and most the time it only wants to play just one and doesn’t,t connect the other. Sometimes none.

i also don,t want to move back my load of cd,s so I guess I,m one for now.

I play music now that I never bought before , so that,s a plus

I don't think so Martin, It's the Bose Sounddock II but it's years since ive really looked at it.. even so the sound quality is only ok at low volume, crank it up and it's all kinds of bass distortion.

Yep, i just need to motivate myself to sort that out, i still use the i-pod video in that Montana cardboard Boom-Box, although the battery life sucks!

The main thing i'm trying to avoid is controlling the wireless speakers via a phone app, i want to do it all on the macbook without any loss of performance, subscribing or having to pay for anything.

Thanks gents!!

      For this first round of supertalk denim articles, we've consulted our denim expert friends at Heddels. We're re-publishing some definitive editorials - originally posted a few years back - that help enlighten us to the various mysteries and intricacies of the denim universe. Many topics have been covered in extensive detail on numerous supertalk threads going back to 2003, but these essential Heddels articles summarize things perfectly.
      //
      The first thing many people say at the mention of raw denim is, “Those are the jeans you’re not supposed to wash, right?” How you launder them has become inextricably tied to the notion of raw denim jeans and a whole host of myths, tricks, and hearsay that have garbled up the discussion of something that is actually quite straightforward.
      We’re here to give you the definitive guide of when, how, and why you should wash your raw denim jeans.
      When Should You Wash Your Jeans
      This is probably the biggest sticking point amongst raw denim fans, many of which will tell you with certainty that washing any sooner than 6 months after you first bought your jeans is a mortal sin and you will absolutely ruin the denim.
      The truth is, your raw denim is a well-made, sturdy, piece of workwear and can take as many washes as you decide to throw at it and keep on humming. The caveat here is that the indigo they are dyed in may not.
      One of the biggest appeals of raw denim is that it will conform and fade to your body the longer you wear it. The reason your jeans fade along with what you do in them is because they are losing indigo in the places they naturally abrade:  where they fold behind your knees, when you scrape them on the concrete, against your wallet in your back pocket. The more indigo you have to lose, the greater the eye-popping contrast between those natural stress points and the rest of the jean will be.
      A pair of well faded jeans.
      When you wash your jeans, however, you lose indigo throughout the entirety of the jean, so the resulting fade will have less contrast. The flipside here is that the longer you wait to wash your jeans, the more that dirt and grime will build up within the fabric and the more brittle and stretched out the cotton fibers will be and the more likely your jeans will start to blow out and rip apart.
      If it’s just a small stain, you might be able to get away with spot cleaning. Ultimately though, if you’re ever in doubt, you should probably wash your jeans. For me, that’s about every 3-4 months of moderate wear. Some people who only wear their jeans on the weekends can go for years, while people who are very active and wear their jeans everyday can barely wait a month. If you’re still unsure, have a look at our guide to 6 Signs You Should Probably Wash Your Jeans.
      Once you’re ready to say it’s time for a wash though, read on for how to do it right.
      Things to Note Before You Wash
      Unsanforized shrink to fit denim before a wash (left) and after (right).
      Now there are a few things you might want to take into account if this is the first time you are washing your jeans.
      Shrinkage – All jeans shrink when they are first exposed to water. Unsanforized (“Shrink-to-Fit”) jeans will reduce in size roughly 5-10% throughout the jean after the first wash and dry, but even pre-shrunk Sanforized jeans will still shrink about 3-5% on first wash. The waist on sanforized jeans will eventually stretch back out, but what you lose in inseam length will not. If you hem your jeans before the first wash, please keep this in mind or you might have the snazziest pair of denim flood pants around. Temperature – The warmer the water, the more indigo you will lose and the more the denim will shrink. This is true for any sort of wash. Indigo Transfer – Don’t wash your jeans with anything that you don’t intend to dye blue! Raw denim naturally bleeds indigo–it’s how you get your fades–but it hemorrhages when it’s wet. If you’re washing your jeans in the tub, be ready for a little blue porcelain. Clean your Washing Area – Make sure your tub is clean and free of chemicals or your washing machine has nothing but the detergent you are using to wash your jeans loaded up. More than a few pairs of jeans have bleached, stained, and everything in between from gunk hanging around. How to Wash Your Raw Denim

      Everyone has their own method of washing their jeans that they get just right. Below is our straightforward way that’s easy to use and will give you fresh jeans with minimal indigo loss in under 10 steps:
      Run a cool-lukewarm bath and add your soap. I recommend Woolite Dark or Dr. Bronner’s but have used shampoo in a pinch before as well. Wait for the soap to be completely dissolved in the water and place your jeans in the tub. Turn off the water when there’s enough for the jeans to be completely submerged (around 3-4 inches). Agitate the jeans under the water for a few minutes then place them so that all parts of the jean are under water. You may have to use shampoo bottles to hold it down if your jeans are especially buoyant. Leave your jeans in the tub for 30-45 minutes (or just watch our Ueno shop tour video five times). Agitate your jeans one more time and then drain the tub. Once the tub is completely empty, refill it with again with cold water and leave the jeans in it for another 5-10 minutes. This will rinse out any remaining soap. Drain the tub and hang your jeans to dry over the drain or outside–they will drip indigo water for a while. Let them dry overnight and voila–clean jeans! Alternate Methods

      We personally go for the tub wash, but not everyone shares that sentiment nor even owns a tub. Here are a couple other methods you might have heard about and why we think the tub soak is the best method out there.
      Washing Machine – Quite a few people simply toss their jeans in the washing machine, which is a perfectly valid and probably more sanitary way to wash your pants. The caveat here is that the way you earn your fades in your raw denim is through the creases that set into the denim. Washing machines tumble, spin, and agitate, which could not only remove those creases but also add a few of their own. If you do choose to wash with a machine though, DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE DRYER. The dryer will shrivel your jeans into a raw denim raisin with a host of weird new creases.
      Dry Cleaning – Some people swear by taking their jeans to the cleaners, after all, how can your jeans shrink if they never even touch water? That may be well and good, but the dry cleaner will be more expensive than anything at home, you won’t know what chemicals they’re using on your jeans, and you have to really trust them as some cleaners might just toss them in their industrial washer and dryer instead.
      Ocean Washing – The ocean wash trend used to be much more popular, but it’s still not uncommon to see someone taking their jeans for a day at the beach. Rubbing sand and seawater on your pants may increase the fades, but it is not an acceptable or hygienic way to wash them. If you choose to do an ocean wash, you’ll need to wash again in freshwater or risk smelling like low tide.

    • By superfuture
      01 | superfuture started in 1999. how old were you then?

      I was 15 back then.

      02 |  how did you first discover sufu? 
      In 2007 or 2008 I first read about Nudie Jeans and it was the gateway drug into raw denim. In 2009 I joined the mynudies forum but learned very quick that there's better denim out there as well as a better forum where it is discussed. I was lurking a few months before joining as I was a bit intimidated by the experienced users there. superfuture and mynudies user Beautiful_freak was a great promoter of SuFu, so I decided to join in October 2010 by sharing some of my faded jeans and pictures of Levi Strauss' birthplace.

      03 |  there are plenty of shopping experts on supertalk. what's your specialty? are you a pro?
      I am by no means an expert, but know a thing or two about denim (especially Samurai and Iron Heart) and shoes/boots.
      I know a lot about fading jeans however, it's what got me hooked back then and still is most entertaining, to see how a fabric evolves over time and share it with fellow people. I can also give sizing and washing advice and know some cuts, so I always like to give advice to new members. My other interests are records, whisky and tattoos. I think I would rather think of me as an expert in these subjects, but besides the tattoos thread in superculture I don't share them here.



      04 |  reputation is everything in an online community. how's yours going? do you ever get neg repped?
      I can't complain, there's some very friendly users that give positive reputation, mainly for my faded jeans. I am not a very stylish person so most rep comes for fades or WAYJDT (What are your jeans doing today)-posts. And I got a few points through the old rep system.
      05 |  online forums are all about the members, threads and posts. who and what keeps you addicted?
      There's always a period when my interests shift towards my other interests, but the community always keeps me coming back. There's a core of enthusiasts that are passionate about their gear which makes it fun to come back every now and then to keep in touch. Also there are many great contests and world tours happening, I also like to read older threads with this content. The OOE Yofukuten world tour being the finest so far, in my opinion. Besides that, I think that the denim blunders thread is often very entertaining, reaching political dimensions sometimes just to come back to very profane matters.
      06 |  supertalkers are based all over the planet. have you met any IRL?  
      I have met a few indeed, and all were great guys. Beautiful_freak, Volvo240thebest, Atzec, Almostnice, Kayodic and Blue Nemo come to my mind immediately, but I think there were more (also from other forums). It was always a good time and a good opportunity to be nerdy.
      07 |  are you fast and furious / slow chilled and controlled / or bitter and twisted? 
      Sometimes bitter, but I think online I'm pretty chilled.
      08 |  the internet is full of crap. with over 3.2 million posts since 2003 has supertalk been a credible contributor or a major culprit? 
      Most of it is super useful information and there are very well informed regulars here.

      09 |  if supertalk got accidentally deleted would you be devastated or relieved?    You often need to lose something to fully understand its value... so I'm certain I would be devastated a while as this place has played a part in my life for almost 7 years now.   10 |  if you could nominate another superstar who would it be?
      It has to be Maynard Friedman, we need to know more about this guy. Beautiful_Freak is a close second as he's a super active user for many years.

      Back then I was 19.
      02 |  how did you first discover sufu? 
      I think I'd discovered sufu around 2010. I started to wear raw denim in 2009, and I think I found sufu because of some internet searches related on "how often should I wash my jeans". I'd been a lurker for a couple years at least and I've been an active member since 2012 I think. I only hang around the superdenim sub forum.
      03 |  there are plenty of shopping experts on supertalk. what's your specialty? are you a pro?
      I am not a pro! Just an average guy who likes to wear his denim. I am a musician and I work as well in music management. I play traditional and early music on wooden flutes and I work as director of a chamber music festival in Italy. My specialty would probably be everything involved with Japanese brand TCB. TCB is a small factory brand from Kurashiki in Okayama prefecture of Japan. They're specialized on reproduction of workwear from the 1920's to the 1960's. I bought my first pair of TCB jeans in 2012, just a couple of months after the brand was created. I believe I've been one of their first overseas customers. Since then I've become quite a fan of the brand and also a friend of the founder of TCB Hajime Inoue. Through my enthusiasm and sharing evolution pics of all my TCB jeans and jackets I think I've helped the brand to spread a bit outside of Japan.

      04 |  reputation is everything in an online community. how's yours going? do you ever get neg repped?
      I don't care much about reputation. I do care about good manners and I see the rep system as a tool to keep the people well behaved on forums. 
      05 |  online forums are all about the members, threads and posts. who and what keeps you addicted?
      Raw denim, vintage style inspired by 1920's to 1960's, Japanese vintage inspired brands, leathercraft, fine boots. I like to see how clothes are worn, and I appreciate people who put together a well thought outfit, not necessarily composed by a bunch of expensive and exclusive clothes only. I also love vintage cars, especially Volvos (hence my nickname), photography, tattoos, and music of course, though the music I listen to won't appeal to the 95% of the sufu crowd, being mostly hardcore, pure drop traditional music, early music and classical music.
      06 |  supertalkers are based all over the planet. have you met any IRL? 
      I come from Italy, where the raw denim community is really small. Only a couple of my real life friends know and wear selvedge jeans, and none of them live in my area. There are only a few Italian regular posters on sufu, but I've never met any of them. I did meet a couple posters outside of my country on various tours. One of them has become a good friend IRL as well.

      07 |  are you fast and furious / slow chilled and controlled / or bitter and twisted?
      Definitely slow, chilled and controlled.
      08 |  the internet is full of crap. with over 3.2 million posts since 2003 has supertalk been a credible contributor or a major culprit? 
      The supertalk community is big, there are some knowledgeable people and some wankers as well hanging around here. 50/50? 60/40?!?

      09 |  if supertalk got accidentally deleted would you be devastated or relieved? 
      Neither probably. Let's say I would be devastated and my bank account would be relieved!
      10 |  if you could nominate another superstar who would it be?
      Another simple guy who likes to wear his denim well and hard, Max Power.
