After starting on my quest to work through Jockey Slut magazine's free CD series Disco Pogo For Punks in Pumps, I should continue, as a tribute the the great lost mag and some fine music. So here's volume 2, from the December 2002 issue. In this one JS was celebrating its 10th birthday. Shame it only saw another 15 months after this.
Anyway, as it was a 10-year special, for the comp they had picked some of their favourite tunes from the previous decade. There must have been a lot to chose from, and in my opinion they did a fine job. Board's of Canada's exotic electronica, Lambchop's reworked downbeat gospel classic (and the finest thing Zero 7 have turned their hands to), Annie's Greatest Hit that never was, Roots Manuva doing one of the greatest hip hop tracks - ever, some old skool drum'n' bass from scene pioneer LTJ Bukem. I could go on, but I won't. Just listen...

In the magazine, there was a guest editor slot with The Streets. Funnily enough, whilst musing on his new found fame after the success of Original Pirate Material, he said "I don't think I'll ever become famous... You're only a celebrity if you want to be. Maybe I'll get used to it and start shagging one of the All Saints... I might, you never know, but I've got no interest in anything more than what I've got now"
OK, maybe the All Saints bit didn't come true, but it's interesting now in the light of his new 'fame confessional' album The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living.
