Uncle Binleys Room
MSN
19th May '02
   
One of the freshest sounding bands on SkidMark and, also the biggest contributors of content to the site since it's inception last year, are the unique & awesome Uncle Binley's Room. Working in a sub basement somewhere in the stark zone within the Chicago city limits these guys create psychedelic experiments in audio as addictive as any class A drug! Tracking down these urban guerrilla's wasn't easy as one half of the men from Uncle, Dawgboy Binley, is currently on a covert mission bringing the UBR sound to the masses in NYC. Communicating with Jumblo Binley based in Chicago's UBR control, SkidMcSkidder managed to battle the time differences and link together with Chicago & New York for a couple of hours of mission debriefing!

SkidMcSkidder: Hi Dawgboy And Jumblo it's great to have the senior germ / cootie analysers "live" from the Quamberry Laboratory on SkidMark!

Jumblo Binley: (Rockin' emoticon)

Dawgboy Binley: Great to be here skiddo

Jumblo Binley: Its good to be here - thanks for taking the time to Chat

Jumblo Binley: I'm at home

Jumblo Binley: And it's always good to be at home

Jumblo Binley: (Beer emoticon)

Jumblo Binley: (Martini emoticon)

Jumblo Binley: (Happy face emoticon)

Dawgboy Binley: Hey Mang? Rainy in England?

SkidMcSkidder: You bet!

SkidMcSkidder: So we ready to rock dudes?

Jumblo Binley: (Rockin' emoticon)

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah, I'm cool

Dawgboy Binley: Hey Skid, Do you drink "Ole Speckled Hen"?

SkidMcSkidder: I do indeed -!

Jumblo Binley: HAHAHAHAHAHA

SkidMcSkidder: (Spaced face emoticon)

Jumblo Binley: I like that stuff

SkidMcSkidder: I wonder what it's like over there

Dawgboy Binley: It's got peculiar foam

Jumblo Binley: Over where?

SkidMcSkidder: In the US - I had Newcastle brown in SF and it weren't nothin' like it is here in the UK!

Dawgboy Binley: It's kinda sweet - too sweet for me

SkidMcSkidder: Speckled hen?

Jumblo Binley: I'm not a Newky Brown Fan

Jumblo Binley: A friend o mine said they call it Newky brown across the pond

SkidMcSkidder: It's an acquired taste - I acquire it and fall over!

Jumblo Binley: I didn't believe him

SkidMcSkidder: He was right - slang

Jumblo Binley: Do you guys say "across the pond"

SkidMcSkidder: I do

SkidMcSkidder: (See previous VI's)!

Jumblo Binley: Where are you at exactly?? The address is 50 miles long

SkidMcSkidder: West Midlands about 25 miles from Birmingham towards the Welsh border

Jumblo Binley: AHH

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah, I always start writing it and run out of room and have to twist it up vertically on the package

Jumblo Binley: Ha

SkidMcSkidder: (Laughs out loud) I've noticed!

SkidMcSkidder: Right, ready for some Q's?

Jumblo Binley: (Rockin' emoticon)

Dawgboy Binley: Ready

Dawgboy Binley: Groovy

Jumblo Binley: (Rockin' emoticon)

SkidMcSkidder: ooookay!

SkidMcSkidder: I'll kick this V.I. off with a question that's been bugging me for ages, and I bet quite a few visitors to your site: Who is Uncle Binley?!

Jumblo Binley: He's far cooler than Uncle Fuzzy

Dawgboy Binley: Whew..... We are not sure actually, but his power has been with us and we feel his presence. I lived in a big house with a lot of people in Michigan, and there was an attic that had a door laying on the floor - it said Uncle Binley's Room on the door.

Dawgboy Binley: The attic later became our rehearsal space

Jumblo Binley: That place was a 3 alarm special waiting to happen

Dawgboy Binley: And the door was used for a basement room where all sorts of wrong doings took place. the true uncle Binley is still a mystery

SkidMcSkidder: Cool!

Dawgboy Binley: There are actually many different songs titled Uncle Binleys Room that we have - we will put one on each album

SkidMcSkidder: Was this where you also met with "Blue Bazooli" and, I must ask what is he?! (See Blue Bazooli's page)

Jumblo Binley: Big Blue is uncle's Evil cohort

Jumblo Binley: Hey Dawg, did you know that Alex and I almost burned the attic down

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah, with that big skull candle sculpture I was making while I was passed out.

Jumblo Binley: Yea, all the 1/2 smoked cigarettes lit on fire when the candle burned down

Dawgboy Binley: It ignited with Jum at the controls and we almost all perished

Jumblo Binley: We woke from our stupor to find it ablaze

Dawgboy Binley: I have little recollection of the event

SkidMcSkidder: Well that's me lost already! (Laughs out loud)

Jumblo Binley: Alex is our sista's husband, him and I were hanging up in the attic, next to the uncle binley door

SkidMcSkidder: Ahh..

Jumblo Binley: Drinking Jack and Brews

Dawgboy Binley: I was done for already - unconscious

Jumblo Binley: And this big skull candle was burning, that Dawg made out of old melted candles and had a lot of old cigarettes melted into it

SkidMcSkidder: Gettin' clearer!

Jumblo Binley: it burned down real low, and then big time ablaze

Jumblo Binley: The attic rehearsal space (Dawg lived there) Had cloth tarps on the ceiling covering the f\rafters

Dawgboy Binley: The attic was a bedroom / rehearsal space that I lived in and it was a bad safety hazard - the walls were sheets of canvas

Jumblo Binley: 3 alarm special

SkidMcSkidder: Cool!

Dawgboy Binley: I had a squirrel living up there too.

Jumblo Binley: HAHAHA oh yea, I forgot

SkidMcSkidder: Tell me more about the "enigmatic" clubhouse residing in the stark zone within the Chicago city limits

Jumblo Binley: It's my rockin zone

Jumblo Binley: Ironically, it now has cloth tarps covering the rafters

SkidMcSkidder: (Laughs out loud)

Jumblo Binley: Its kinda rad - purple and florescent green walls

Dawgboy Binley: It's our studio/science lab

Jumblo Binley: Lots of neon and Black lights

Dawgboy Binley: Smoke machines, light shows....

Jumblo Binley: Science lab is the best description.

SkidMcSkidder: Sounds a little like Incubus Lovechild's command module!

Jumblo Binley: There are plenty of bottles of unidentified liquid there too

SkidMcSkidder: Have they been sampled recently?

Jumblo Binley: Yes digitally - not orally

SkidMcSkidder: Heh heh

Jumblo Binley: Gurglin' bublin' fizzin'

SkidMcSkidder: Sounds like Old Speckled Hen!

Jumblo Binley: HAHAHAHA

Dawgboy Binley: The clubhouse is a digital set-up, with many analog synths

Dawgboy Binley: We make it a pretty great zone to hang in, but it's a great studio.

SkidMcSkidder: Dawgboy, You were playing & recording with the band "Clarity" while you're in NYC - how's that going now?

Dawgboy Binley: We're done. Everyone was doing so many side projects that it became less important for pretty much everyone in the band. Some are more into film/art now, I'm still working mostly on music stuff.

SkidMcSkidder: How does living in NYC affect your ability to
get together and write/record with Jumblo?

Jumblo Binley: We go High Tech

Jumblo Binley: Internet, techno rama

Dawgboy Binley: We've got it worked out pretty good - Jum's got a server at his house, and we used the same software so we can send large files over - All final mixes are done in The stark zone in Chicago

Jumblo Binley: yea

Jumblo Binley: He uploads Cakewalk files to my server

Dawgboy Binley: I travel there often too.

Jumblo Binley: I add parts, do remixes, and screw up stuff

SkidMcSkidder: Ah, cakewalk what version do you use?

Jumblo Binley: 9.03 and Sonar 1.02

SkidMcSkidder: I'm still makin' do with Ver. 3.0!!

Jumblo Binley: Unfortunately Sonar 102 has caused some incompatibilities

Jumblo Binley: Whoa

Dawgboy Binley: I haven't upgraded to Sonar yet, but it will be soon. I don't know if my set up can handle it yet.

SkidMcSkidder: SkidMark's still in the Stone Age!

Jumblo Binley: Yea, the drag with Sonar, was that it really requires a monster machine

Dawgboy Binley: We were there - Sippin was done on 6.0, but that's still a bit better.

Jumblo Binley: I was just over an old "Well of Souls" buddy of ours - Krunchy

Jumblo Binley: He uses Cake 8 - I was reminded of how blazing fast the pre-Sonar version was

Jumblo Binley: Ver 9.03 is Rock solid

Dawgboy Binley: We were both in a band in Chicago Called Well of Souls, and there was an old member "krunchy" who Jum was talking about

SkidMcSkidder: Gotcha

Dawgboy Binley: Skid - Did you ever get "Sippin from the Test Tube"?

SkidMcSkidder: No man

Dawgboy Binley: My fault.

SkidMcSkidder: Just the Crema

Dawgboy Binley: I'll get it to you - It's the first Binley album. It helps the whole saga come together.

Jumblo Binley: Yes indeed

SkidMcSkidder: Far out - I'll look out for that!

Jumblo Binley: IndeedY

SkidMcSkidder: SkidMark is honoured to be the exclusive source on the net of your absolute killer track "Cast Out" (see MP3 links page) - will it feature on the
next UBR album?

Jumblo Binley: Si'

Jumblo Binley: Cast out - features the WOS drummer "good guy Chuck"

SkidMcSkidder: So, is there any plans for a new album release sometime soon?

Jumblo Binley: We gotta get on it.

Dawgboy Binley: Yes, Binley three will happen, but we have some other things we've been doing right now - me with Clarity, and some other things in NYC, and Jum's making music for Karate videos and doing a lot of recording. We have enough songs now for 5 more Binley albums, but we need to get final mixes down, and everything is being done at a higher level than before, so we are taking some time

Jumblo Binley: NLM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

SkidMcSkidder: Yeah, You were saying that you're working on a completely different project called the NLM (Nutria Liberation Movement)- I dig you're initial description of it: "It's hillbilly Punk Rock for all the redheaded stepchild's of the planet" - Tell me more!!

Jumblo Binley: Louisiana Bayou, with only 2 back teeth

SkidMcSkidder: (Laughs out loud)

Jumblo Binley: Its raw

Jumblo Binley: It's loud

Jumblo Binley: Less produced than Binley is

Dawgboy Binley: Yes, all the Demos are done. It's all fast and harder, but will have a small element of electronic - not as much as Binley, but probably more like analog parts.

Dawgboy Binley: Analog parts over a raw core - is what I meant

Jumblo Binley: I take my old moog - throw it off the roof - then play my parts through a fender twin, and a EH memory man

SkidMcSkidder: It's the only way to play! (Laughs out loud)

Jumblo Binley: Man the Fender twin - memory man combo is insane

Jumblo Binley: Guitar or keys

SkidMcSkidder: Do you hafta wear earplugs?!

Jumblo Binley: Enough beer and you won't mind a thing

Dawgboy Binley: Again, all the tunes are recorded at a demo level, but we have to finalise some stuff, and gloss it over. Pressing another CD, will cost some dough, but I feel like this one's. Jum's in the middle of recording his sequential circuits pro one through a homemade tube amp that burns it up

Dawgboy Binley:"I feel like this one's it" - is what I meant to say.

SkidMcSkidder: Gotcha

Jumblo Binley: NLM rocks

Jumblo Binley: But Uncle Binley will be back new and improved too

Jumblo Binley: UBR is getting a bit smooth these days, while NLM takes up the rough edges

Dawgboy Binley: There's a lot of slide guitar and hillbilly themes in this one - but it's more like a group of inbred swamp tour guides from Louisiana that just got molested by aliens - all in a happy sing along package

SkidMcSkidder: Sounds better by the minute!

Dawgboy Binley: UBR has no rules - so it is kind of nice to take something from beginning to end with a focus and an objective

SkidMcSkidder: Last year you guys were working on the score to an independent
film out of Detroit called "Zeitgeist" how did that pan out? Also, If I remember rightly, Jum was working on stuff for a Kung Fu instruction video last year too - is music score work something you guys do a lot of? (And the big question - does it pay the rent?!!)

Jumblo Binley: Ha rent

Jumblo Binley: Dawg and I have both spent a good portion of our lives trying to get music to pay the rent

SkidMcSkidder: Successfully? (Laughs out loud)

Jumblo Binley: You just reminded me, I never got a copy of the damn video

Dawgboy Binley: There's a contradiction in being experimental and paying rent.

Jumblo Binley: Yea and even the video didn't pay too much rents

Dawgboy Binley: In order to have the freedom to do whatever you sonically want - the rent goes unpaid.

Jumblo Binley: The rent goes unpaid most times anyway - regardless of your freedom. We have a few friends who make their living entirely from Music (Good Guy from WOS being one of them)

Dawgboy Binley: We're only taking on things that give us that freedom

Jumblo Binley: You might as well - go with what you want out of life.

SkidMcSkidder: Sure thing

Jumblo Binley: One of the few things in life that I love - is jammin' on Binley, NLM, etc tunes

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah, and we want to record big muffs lit on fire and moogs falling of the roof. while all whacked on speckled hens!

SkidMcSkidder: (Laughs out loud) groovy!

Jumblo Binley:Jumblo Binley:Jumblo Binley: If I did only what paid, I'd be unhappy - and still broke

SkidMcSkidder: Yeah - look at me!

Jumblo Binley: I need a speckled hen right now

SkidMcSkidder: When was UBR last on the road? Was it the "Sippin' like your Mamma" tour?

Jumblo Binley: The road is always a little foggy for me

Dawgboy Binley: UBR did Jams around the stark zone - we've had other things like WOS and Clarity to be on the Road with. Mostly it's a studio thing.

Jumblo Binley: The difficult part with UBR live, is that we need about 25 players along with us

Jumblo Binley: We can't afford to pay an entourage, so we have to get our old buddy's from other groups

Jumblo Binley: They usually have other things going on, which prohibit longer stints

Jumblo Binley: We used to do more regular jams in Chicago as a 3 piece originally - pretty scaled down versions of the tunes - It was cool cause the energy was high

Jumblo Binley: Now touring becomes more complex

SkidMcSkidder: So no plans to tour again once you guys morph back together in one location?

Jumblo Binley: Anything is possible

Dawgboy Binley: Everyone is doing tons of stuff. The cool thing is that we have been a part of so many great people in two great cities that are creative in very technical ways.

Jumblo Binley: Yea, I just wrote some parts for a group that "good Guy" is working with

Dawgboy Binley: "A part of something with so many great people"

SkidMcSkidder: Talking about being creative: One of my (and many of SkidMark's visitor's) favourite sections of the SkidMark web site is the "Dawg Art Gallery" containing 8 inspiring yet insane pieces of art work including commentaries by the artist himself - When did Dawgy first show signs of being a PC Paint genius?

Dawgboy Binley: Actually, during the sippin creation - there were 17 tracks and each one of them had a piece to go along with the track. We didn't have the dough to make a CD layout with that many panels - so now most of it went unviewed by anyone. The SkidMark web site is the only place we've used a lot of that stuff.

Dawgboy Binley: There's been a lull in my Dawg Art for a while - The NLM has been my main concern, but having a gallery on the skid site has made me want to get it going again - I have to find some of the oldies that I think Jum only has lost on his server somewhere.

SkidMcSkidder: Raider's of Jum's lost ark!

Jumblo Binley: I dig the PC Paint look. I work with some Graffiti Artists turned Web Graphic designers. They aren't so fond of it

SkidMcSkidder: Well we dig it

Dawgboy Binley: Binley has always been a band using technology, Jum takes the lead usually. But sometimes we create problems for ourselves. Always upgrading software, always using different methods of sequencing and different mediums recording that have to be synced in different ways - there's always a learning curve involved, but in figuring out the technology we try to exercise a demented creativity.

Jumblo Binley: I used to be a big Skull and Candle dude, but now I fear the clubhouse is a bit to volatile for the candles

Dawgboy Binley: The Dawg palace out in queens is more glitter based than skull decor now.

Jumblo Binley: Dawg does some cool furniture decorating

Jumblo Binley: You should sell your Dawg furniture in a NYC gallery

Jumblo Binley: Except, it's hard to keep painted furniture from looking worn

Dawgboy Binley: In our place out here, every piece of furniture is covered in a glitter/polyurethane coating. Still many skulls from back in the day - but they are metallic glitterized now.

SkidMcSkidder: Sounds like a funky place to dwell

Dawgboy Binley: Thanks mang!

SkidMcSkidder:: Is that MC Bad B-Sting's influence?

Dawgboy Binley: B-sting is the revolutionary anti-establishment influence on UBR.

SkidMcSkidder: Tell me more..

Jumblo Binley: MC Bad B-Sting and Dawgster are getting hitched

SkidMcSkidder: Hey congrats dude

Jumblo Binley: Shot gun style

Jumblo Binley: Hee hee

SkidMcSkidder: Ha ha

SkidMcSkidder: So do I get an invite to the Stag party?!!

Jumblo Binley: Yea, When are we doing the Stag o Rama

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah, both Binley locations are pretty insane. I don't invite people from work, hence my employment may be interrupted.

SkidMcSkidder: So what do you do in the real world employment-wise?

Jumblo Binley: Odd's and Ends

Jumblo Binley: This and That

Jumblo Binley: Here and there

SkidMcSkidder: Duckin' and divin'

Jumblo Binley: Pickin' and Grinnin'

Jumblo Binley: Shuckin' and Jivin'

Dawgboy Binley: yeah, if you are hitting NYC sometime - you should stop by. It's a ferocious place - I try to battle it every weekend and I always lose. It chewed me up and spit me out last night once again.

Dawgboy Binley: Jum's teaching kids programming.

Dawgboy Binley: I do database work in NYC

SkidMcSkidder: I'm definitely NYC-bound sometime in the next year or two - there're so many cool bands I now know there and don't forget Jerry @ Bumpskey.com!

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah - I think he's in New Jersey actually.

Jumblo Binley: Yea, Dawg - you should go visit old Bumsk

SkidMcSkidder: Yeah you're right NJ

SkidMcSkidder: J's still playing Crema on the show - heard it the other night

Jumblo Binley: If you are in Chicago - stop on by - we can grab a pint or two

SkidMcSkidder: Line 'em up Jum - I can swim the pond in a couple o' weeks!!

Dawgboy Binley: I've been afraid of the land of Bon Jovi and no left hand turns, but I do need to go out there - It' s actually always had a bad ass punk rock scene - The misfits I think are from New Jersey actually.

Jumblo Binley: HAHAHA the land of no left turns

Dawgboy Binley: Jum and I lived in New Jersey actually.

Dawgboy Binley: As far as bars go - I think NYC is unmatched - at least for the U.S. New Orleans is pretty insane, but it's really a small area that people hang out in.

Jumblo Binley: Austin is cool, but a pretty small strip comparatively

SkidMcSkidder: Any plans to jump the pond and hit the UK?

Jumblo Binley: I really want to do it, The deal is:

Jumblo Binley: I hate planes

Jumblo Binley: So I need a slow boat

Jumblo Binley: Or a fast one

Jumblo Binley: Being in Chicago, and continental flight is only about 4 hours - it's all I can take

Jumblo Binley: "Any continental flight"

SkidMcSkidder: Yeah, it killed me doin' 12 hours to LA

Dawgboy Binley: B-sting and I were actually thinking of a honeymoon in the land of Fish & chips and Speckled Hen.

SkidMcSkidder: Really Dawgy? Cool!

SkidMcSkidder:: Come on over and Skidder will show ya a good time!

Jumblo Binley: What's the best English Brew out there??

SkidMcSkidder: Hummm...

SkidMcSkidder: That's a good one...

Dawgboy Binley: B-sting's starting a violent revolution in Santiago - we went there last summer - 12 hour flight

SkidMcSkidder: Yeah I remember you telling me about sour somethin' or other

Dawgboy Binley: It must be ole Rasputin

Jumblo Binley: Pico sours ??

SkidMcSkidder: That's the one

SkidMcSkidder: Timothy Taylor Landlord Ale is wicked (Jum)

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah, Pisco Sours - it's Chile's national drink.

Jumblo Binley: I would have liked to be there too - but it was kind cold in the summer wasn't it

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah - our summer is their winter. B-sting studies chaotic upheavals and violent revolutions.

Dawgboy Binley: Mostly in Chile.

Jumblo Binley: I'm against violent revolutions. Especially on my street

SkidMcSkidder: So when are we gonna see the UBR revolution?

Dawgboy Binley: Soon.... Sooon...

SkidMcSkidder: I.E. UBR discs in every good underground music shop

Jumblo Binley: I think the NLM stuff is coming out next. Good Guy is getting ready to lay down some skins for it

Jumblo Binley: Then back to UBR

Dawgboy Binley: I'm doing my best to spread them in Manhattan, but the damn bars keep slowing me down on the way.

Jumblo Binley: I got discs to go round

SkidMcSkidder: I'll be waitin'....!

Jumblo Binley: Any underground shops need them let me know

SkidMcSkidder: I'll tout some UBR stuff around and let you know

Dawgboy Binley: Great!!!

Jumblo Binley: Dawg and Myself have a fatal flaw - were not good businessmen

Jumblo Binley: So the distribution side of things kind lack

Jumblo Binley: Typical musician - any help would be cool

SkidMcSkidder: It's something I'd like to get into but it's the up front capitol outlay which is always the stumbling block!

Jumblo Binley: Yes as usual

Dawgboy Binley: We need to get some donations for a skid compilation

Jumblo Binley: Si'

Dawgboy Binley: I spread the skid stickers you sent me on the subway out here in Jackson Heights Queens

SkidMcSkidder: Cheers!

Jumblo Binley: Bathrooms and subways - 2 best places for underground advertisements

Dawgboy Binley: yeah - I placed one on the toilet of CBGB's last year when you sent them.

Jumblo Binley: Awesome

SkidMcSkidder: cool! That's a hang out of Gate 18 - I've one of the "live" CD's recorded there

SkidMcSkidder: I was thinking (when I FINALLY) get up to speed with SkidMark, about setting up a shop

SkidMcSkidder: But not like the others..

SkidMcSkidder: I'd BUY the CD's off the artists and then sell 'em - not wait 'til they're bought and take a cut

Jumblo Binley: The drag is the up front cost and publicity. Most bands don't mind doing the "wait to pay" thing - If they trust the operation

SkidMcSkidder: Yeah, that's the one thing about internet-based outfits - trust

Jumblo Binley: Were used to the shysters who make the bands pay up front for sale of their own CD

Dawgboy Binley: It's common here in New York for local bands to pay publicists, which didn't seem so much the case in Chicago

SkidMcSkidder: Everyone wants a cut

Jumblo Binley: Which I wouldn't be against if there was even a glimmer of hope that it would pay off

Jumblo Binley: 99.999999999999% of the time - nothing!!

Jumblo Binley: That's why it rocks that SkidMark Multi is getting things to happen

SkidMcSkidder: SkidMark's only small fry in the scheme of things though unfortunately

Dawgboy Binley: The good thing about the internet is that you are doing something really specific so that you can connect with people who are into experimental type stuff.

SkidMcSkidder: Oh yeah - I hear ya

SkidMcSkidder: Until the inception of SkidMark I didn't know jackshit

SkidMcSkidder: Now I know bands all over the world!

Jumblo Binley: The US music industry has a formula for success

SkidMcSkidder: Which is?

Jumblo Binley: I hope soon, we can remix that formula with a taste of Binley Science stew

Jumblo Binley: Formula = Songwriter, production team, Smiley face, choreographer

Dawgboy Binley: Which British brews should we try out?

SkidMcSkidder: Timothy Taylor land lord - always a good 'un

SkidMcSkidder: Any IPA (imperial pale ale)

Jumblo Binley: IPA's rock

Jumblo Binley: High hops - I love it

SkidMcSkidder: Gettin' thirsty! (Laughs out loud)

SkidMcSkidder: In fact this is the 1st VI I've done without the aid of a 4-pack

Jumblo Binley: All I got is a couple o' DOS XX in the fridge

Dawgboy Binley: Have you tried Malort, the Binley liquor of choice?

Jumblo Binley: AHH Malort

SkidMcSkidder: Err.. no

SkidMcSkidder: Ale?

Dawgboy Binley: Unfortunately we can't mail Malort, combustible!

Dawgboy Binley: No octane fuel.

SkidMcSkidder: Fantastic!

Jumblo Binley: Where can I get me some err...?"? What's that Green illegal liquid you get in Amsterdam

Jumblo Binley: Or Prague

Jumblo Binley: Or Brazil

Jumblo Binley:....Oh Absinthe

SkidMcSkidder: Ah... I know the stuff (was in the Dam last Nov)

SkidMcSkidder: Blindness-maker

Jumblo Binley: Yea - only the home made stuff

Jumblo Binley: The real stuff is still available in a couple of countries

Jumblo Binley: I'm not sure where

SkidMcSkidder: Never tried it meself

SkidMcSkidder: Vodka's my thang

Jumblo Binley: I got a good article on it I'll send it out

Jumblo Binley: Good Russian stuff?

Jumblo Binley: I have this Italian stuff that is awesome in martinis

SkidMcSkidder: You oughta talk to Ed Van Wylick from the Dutch band Sleazy Dream's he's an expert on all thing's that'll get him WASTED!

Jumblo Binley: Mezzaluna

Dawgboy Binley: Inkapay?

SkidMcSkidder: Eh?!

Jumblo Binley: Another fine blend - I believe from Japan

Dawgboy Binley: Get some of that while you are in Japan. I forget how it's spelled.

SkidMcSkidder: I'll look that one up next month

Jumblo Binley: You'll have to look it up out there - its bright red - like blood

SkidMcSkidder: Smashin'!

Jumblo Binley: I'm a Bombay Sapphire gin man myself

Jumblo Binley: I gotta check out Sleazy Dreams tunes

SkidMcSkidder: You're a bit of a connoisseur by the sounds of it!

Jumblo Binley: I've had my share

Jumblo Binley: Dawg too

SkidMcSkidder: Hey Dawgy - you still with us?

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah - Gin is my toxin of choice, but I never had enough dough to get Sapphire.

Jumblo Binley: Fine gin and Fine Port - 2 of the finer things I enjoy

Jumblo Binley: Too broke to buy it most of the time

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah, I'm here! I got to split pretty soon though. In like 10 minutes actually.

SkidMcSkidder: That's cool I've pretty much run out of "set" questions anyhow
Jumblo Binley:

Dawgboy Binley: I get Georgi Gin here for 7 bucks a bottle.

Jumblo Binley: Rockin'

SkidMcSkidder: Gordon's Gin is the Englishman's choice

Dawgboy Binley: Yeah, they always have that on the airplanes here for some reason.

SkidMcSkidder: Not a G&T fan myself

Dawgboy Binley: This has been cool skid - we have to keep in touch more on the booze info.

Jumblo Binley: Only the best!!!

SkidMcSkidder: Too right!

SkidMcSkidder: I am what I drink and I'm a bitter man! (Laughs out loud)

Dawgboy Binley: Alright I'm out mang!! Cheers to All!!!

SkidMcSkidder: Thanks Dawgy!

Jumblo Binley: Yeah, I'll roll too - thanks for hanging with us Skid

Dawgboy Binley: Thanks!!!

SkidMcSkidder: And it's been great finally gettin' one of my favourite SkidMark bands "Face to Face" - we'll do it again bro

Jumblo Binley: Yea, we should meet one day

SkidMcSkidder: It's a date! (well, not literally! (Laughs out loud))

SkidMcSkidder: keep rockin' Jum and I'm looking forward to the next release! UBR ROCK!

Jumblo Binley: Over and out

SkidMcSkidder: For now! see ya
