Bike 012


The rapid-fire follow up to High Road

Bike 012

Eddie C - The Day Will Come
b/w
Eddie C - Moonrings

Check it at Oye Records

Phonica Review:
After revving and rocking at the Hells Angels disco for the "High Road" compilation, the Red Motorbike tears off down the highway for another 7" excursion. Main man Eddie C is at the controls, seducing us with two chopped and dropped loopers designed with the dancefloor in mind. On the A-side, "The Day Will Come" packs a proper emotional punch, marrying soulful vocals, soaring strings and subtle piano over a solid MPC beat. It's proper head nodding, hands aloft tackle for the tail end of the night. "Moonrings" sees Eddie switch it up a little, submerging a strangely circular bit of jazz fusion under a whole load of filters and dub fx to lock us into the wonkiest dancefloor groove you've ever heard. If you like your disco dubbed and skewed, this is the beat for you!

Juno Review:
Two more delicious roadtrips from the Red Motorbike founder and spiritual leader Eddie C: "The Day Will Come" is a lilting, sample-heavy head-nodder that develops its own stop/start momentum as the deftly sliced strings and vocals are recontextualised to great effect. "Moonrings" is a more floor-focused dub disco affair as the chugging groove lets the guitars ripple, the keys skitter and scatter and the flutes waft trippily into the ether. Get the motor running... this one's a keeper.

I got my bag!


Over 8000 bags reported missing at Tegel after (MDE->BOG)(BOG->FRA).  
Once over Europe and after 9 hours in the air, the pilot announces: "Just an update about ze weather meine Damen und Herren.  Ze weather in Frankfurt is bad. But anyway, we're going to try and land ze plane."
Some significant bumps created some nervous energy amongst my fellow passengers from Colombia. "Please don't worry, it's only a little wind".

Hundreds of flights AND TRAINS were cancelled due to wind and lightning upon arrival in Frankfurt.  After waiting in various lines for a few hours I was eventually re-scheduled on a flight at 10pm to Tegel.

Arriving safely in Tegel but rather exhausted, you can imagine the delight of all the passengers when we were notified that none of our bags had arrived and we had to all go to the lost and found to fill out forms one at a time (only available in German of course).
Tegel is usually closed by this time and it was clear the Lufthansa staff at the office didn't want to be there, brushing everyone off as quickly as possible telling them there was nothing that could be done and that their bags would eventually be shipped to the address they provide.  

I made it home and for the next 2 weeks called Lufthansa, Tegel and visited the on-line baggage tracking website which continuously read 'tracing continues - please check back later' daily.

2 more trips to the airport - first to get a reference number which was supposed to be given upon our arrival. - second due to 'confirmation' by a Lufthansa agent by phone that my bag was in fact at Tegel and I should go pick it up because there's no telling how long it could take to deliver it due to the thousands that are sitting there.  Of course I was unable to get it...

So, anyway, on the last day of my pal Steve's visit from Toronto, my bag arrived like magic to my door, the same morning I shipped the 'High Road' 2xLP to distro by UPS.  It was a good morning!

Over the same two weeks I had an operation on my neck and a terrible cold.

Much better now.

Things are looking up!

Although it's going to be tough to minimize, I might be a carry-oner from now on.
