Disco Scratch


Blade Interview Download

Being as Blade is now on social media I replayed this interview as he is writing some great posts on FB at the moment.  Between myself and a couple of others we will be helping Blade get a proper website up and running with all the great pictures, videos and stories.  He was in the chat room when this show was played, so when I say it’s worth getting in the chat, it really is!

More guests to come soon and all the usual downloads below…

Review of 2018 by ABU members

Last night the first Disco Scratch Radio of the year aired and featured all tracks released in 2018 (except one which is coming out in 2019, but created in 2018!), all selected by members of the ABU FaceBook group.  20 tracks in total, I won’t flap on too much in here, just get your listening gear round the file below.  As usual, all links below.

I’m hoping to be working locally for at least the next 2 to 3 months so should be back to regular live shows on a Thursday night from now on!  The full tracklist with the names of the ABU members that selected the cuts is in the comments at the bottom of the post.  Thanks to all the contributors, see you next week!

First official Disco Scratch radio Show 08.04.2010

When I started doing Disco Scratch I had a slot on Freestyle FM (now defunct).  Back then there weren’t loads of stations you could do shows on, but Freestyle had a good mix of Hip Hop, D n B, jungle, reggae etc and we fitted in nicely.  The crew there were nice too, never met up but had a laugh in the chatroom!

This show was dedicated to Malcolm McLaren who died on the day this show aired.

See you guys around…

” Why settle for a couple of bones when you can have the whole bank?”
Oh you can’t keep a good dog down (No sir)
No you can’t keep a good dog down
I’ve seen pain and hurt, I’ve eaten dirt (That’s true)
It’s hard to buy but even I have been jilted by a skirt (He lies)
But look out, I’m still around
Cause you can’t keep a good dog down
Ya can’t keep a good dog down (No you can’t)
No no no no, you can’t keep a good dog down
I’ve been bought and sold
He’s been warm and cold
But ten to one I’ll still be runnin’ rackets when I’m old
Not in some cage in the city pound
Cause you can’t keep a good dog
Can’t keep a good, I say you can’t keep a good dog down
In him’s the luck of the Irish
The pride of the German
And even a bit of Siam
Siam? You see the come of the English
The charm of the Spanish
A pedigree a certainly ain’t what I am
So call me a mixed up pup
(You’re a mixed up pup)
But the only way this pup knows is up
Ya can’t keep a good dog down
Ya can’t keep a good dog down
He’s been fat and thin
I’ve been out and in
He tried a life of virtue
But prefer a life of sin
So tonight when we own this town
I’ve known hunger, I’ve known thirst
Lived the best and seen the worst
But the only way I know to finish best to finish first
So watch out when you hear this sound
Cause you can’t keep a good dog, no ya
Can’t keep a good, I say you can’t keep a good dog down
You can’t keep a good dog down
