It was a good night. The wierdest moment of the night was when we couldn't for the life of us figure out if the Air/Beck remix should be at 33 or 45 rpms. And I got a chuckle from Bryan when I said that Neil Young's "Old Man" contained "gangsta banjo".

My favourite song title of the night was certainly "Baby, I Don't Like Your Clothes". Both Saul Williams and Kool Keith got played three times, although only Minnie Ripperton got played twice in the same round, which I believe has only happened previously with Ween.

Best song...hard to say. I've Had A Little Talk by Andy Bey was mind-blowing. Steve,I'll tell you this much: the best one-two combo was BDP chased by Syd Barrett. Or Jeru followed by Sinatra.
