Supa yall!

The flyer does all the taLK. TTTTT

Tiger Tones – one of the most signifigant bands in CHCH since Shocking Pinks is doing the pilgrimage to AK/NZ. Who can blame them, AK is a rad city. Pikachunes is also making the move too. Sadness all round 🙁
So anyways, this Friday at Double Happy is your second to last chance to see them jam before their mighty trek. I’ll also be spinning some tunes at the start of the night. Come on down and hang yo. It’s $10 on the door and tunes start at 10pm. To get you in the mood here is their latest single ‘short thing’

MP3: Tiger Tones – short thing

New beginnings

On September 26, 2009, in News, by Dr Hitchcock

So after a week or so of throwing names around I’ve decided that StarScream++ was a bit techie and a bit geeky and have decided to officially call the new Starlifter.TV SHOUTcast audio stream… Starlifter Radio, original huh. So it’s official as of today you can go straight to StarlifterRadio.com and listen to the latest and the greatest in the world of Starlifter.TV. One name I just thought of that would’ve been a laugh was “Starlifter.TV-on-the-radio.com” – you indie kids will get it, you dance kids might not :p

So yeah, StarlifterRadio.com, a fully functional Death Star. Sometimes live from the Starlifter.TV Complex, sometimes with Auto DJ, HAL++. If you wanna know when live shows are happening follow us on twitter @starliftertv. If you’ve got any tunes or mixes you wanna share with the Starlifter.TV community you can upload them here: http://soundcloud.com/drhitchcock/dropbox – and if you’re techie minded enough and wanna host a show on Starlifter Radio drop me a line: drh_at_starlifter.tv

Oh, by the way… I just uploaded a whole bunch of old photos from the old Mixtape Connection archive. If you ever went to any of those parties you know the radness, oh yes, you know the radness. Photos can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Mixtape-Connection/6541735977 – AH MEMORIES!

Dr H had something to say at a house party one night...

Hey yo!

October 2009 will officially be Starlifter.TV’s 1st Birthday (although I did back date some posts to June 08 from the old Mixtape Connection website). It has been a real joy and a total experiment. Over that time there has been some interesting changes. At some points it has been a personal blog, at other points pure promo for friends, it’s been a place to reflect on the music my friends and I like, but at the end of the day I wanted this website to be tool to build a community of passionate, open minded, musical party peeps.

What do you as a reader and part of this small community (we get around 100 different visitors a day) think about Starlifter.TV?!! Over the year I have tried many different things. If you’re a regular reader what do you keep coming back for? What do you enjoy reading about? What could there be less of?

Over the past year I haved tried to post as many free MP3s as possible but moving into the next year of Starlifter.TVs life I may try and limit this to Creative Commons (CC) licensed music and images as the CC philisophy and framework is an excellent alternative to the current Copyright licenses which are being used by big business to hold the [digital] world to ransom.

But yeah! What do you wanna see on Starlifter.TV? So far I’ve posted set lists for radio shows and DJ sets, podcast episodes, peeps Top 10s, videos of shit I find interesting, reviews of songs and albums, MP3s, party pics and interesting images, tunes from my band Electro Pussy Posse, DJ mixsets, live sets, lots of Christchurch music guff (that’s where I’m based), pictures of Zia from the Dandy Warhols (HOT!), interviews, blah, blah, you get the picture.

Have you been thinking about contributing? Do you think you’ve got your head around what Starlifter.TV is all about? Do you have things to say? How do you see the world? Are you a Photographer? Writer? Musician? Artist? Creative type? Well if you would like to be a greater part of Starlifter.TV and help us then buzz an email to me yo: drh (at) starlifter.tv or you could even send me a letter: 42 Hanrahan Street, Upper Riccarton, Christchurch 8041, New Zealand. Otherwise free feel to leave a comment at the end of this post or above in the Google Friend Connect bar.

And I’d really like to thank all of the contributors to Starlifter.TV so far: Nurse NOS, Tom Darlow, Cara Totoro, Darlene Brown, Evan James, Erin Hutching, Sixtyten, Tom Cosm, Muz & Ezra from DeliciousMusic.co.nz and anyone else who I may have forgotten, you peeps POP!

Anyways, thanks for hanging with us here at Starlifter.TV and hopefully we’ll be seeing more of yo.

Mad love, peace and respect,
Dr Hitchcock
