Another Outpost Gone.

In #rabble14, Blog, Culture, Print Edition by Dan LambertLeave a Comment

Above: Captured by our man Beggars. The kiosk in all its architectural glory. This tiny hexagonal kiosk out in Ballsbridge is just 37 square feet. It’s about the size of a bathroom in a small gaff. It may be one of Dublin’s smallest buildings, but as Dan Lambert finds out it tells a terrible tale about where our city is going. On the outside it’s undeniably pretty. Sitting neatly on … Read More

A Poverty Of Ambition.

In #rabble14, Blog, Print Edition by Patrick McCuskerLeave a Comment

  The government strategy on housing is to constantly repeat “spending commitments” and issue estimates for house building projects. Patrick McCusker dons his number crunching glasses and looks behind the headlines of the government’s housing strategy in Budget 2018. Overall spending is up to 1.9 billion in housing, which is a startling 46% increase on the 2017 budget. This figure includes 500m to meet a new target of 50,000 homes … Read More

rabble’s 2017 Year In Review.

In Blog, Politics by rabbleLeave a Comment

Above: Kerz produced this piece to go alongside a recent feature on scandals in the Nardai. You know that opening scene of Terminator? When Reese comes to – naked in a flash of light, with very little idea where he is? Well, today was a bit like that for us rabblers – we’ve time traveled through the merry season and are now stuck back at our wage slave stations, suffering … Read More

Bye George!

In #rabble14, Blog, Culture, Illustration, Politics, Print Edition by Paul DillonLeave a Comment

Above: Illustartion by Mice. That’s next year’s totally inappropriate Halloween mask sorted so. George Hook is a long time Blueshirt supporter who made a good living from greasing the gears of the establishment and the fine craft of being a reactionary wind up merchant on prime time radio. We drafted in Paul Dillon to look at how the Hookie monster eventually fell from grace and the far bigger picture of … Read More

In Blog by rabbleLeave a Comment

  Tornado Wallace – Lonely Planet (Running Back) Lonely planet is the Immersive, heady, balearic debut LP from Tornado Wallace. A total trip from start to finish. An incredibly well rounded and mature album from the Australian producer. Could choose any of the tracks here but ‘Warp Odyssey’ has to be my pick. Tzusing – 東方不敗  (L.I.E.S.) Another stand out release was Tzusing’s debut LP on LIES. After a string … Read More

Common Sense.

Above: Wendy Teasdill is the mother of Ellie Rowe. Ellie died at the festival in 2013 after mixing a small amount of alcohol with a small amount of high purity K. The family gave a heart rendering talk at Speakers Corner at Boomtown this year. Across the pond, drug-related dates are spiking. So this year’s Boomtown was something of a revelation in the kind of harm reduction strategies, that can … Read More

Dublin Digital Radio’s 2017 Besties.

In Blog by rabbleLeave a Comment

Above: The little studio that could – where the magic happens.  And the poster for Friday’s gig with record fair bizness. It’s been a momentous year for our neighbours and extended fam at Dublin Digital Radio. So, to top it off – we gave them a hand harvesting end of year listicles from the gazillions of shows holding things down on the station. There’s been a huge response to this.  And rather than … Read More

Theme from Q – Objekt Big fan of this one. Love the combination of breakbeat, and deep house elements. Always goes off! Hat tip to Tom Tatton sharing with me! Pembe – Jimmy Rouge (Orange Tree Edits) Was a toss up between this and ‘Litmus Groove’ for my favourite tracks from the delicious Orange Tree series but went with Pembe. Amazing track, such a groove. Smiling Faces ’95 – One … Read More

In Blog by rabbleLeave a Comment

I actually didn’t listen to a lot of new music this year outside of work so my choices are a bit coloured by that!

Kelsey Lu – Dreams Avalon Emerson – 2000 Species of Cacti Kelela – LMK Noname – Diddy … Read More
