Meal Talk New York


…where were we? Oh yes, we didn’t dig around to bring you the definitive story behind the seminal New York record store Music Factory, nor did we interview Mr. Magic but we did go and eat at Franks, a great place to eat. The Risotto was to die for.

    I bet you went to Williamsburg too, and hung out in your Cheap Mondays jeans and vintage Cazals.

    I did pull out the history of Music Factory written by Steinski for my blog a few years back…And for all seeking Mecca, NY today is a HUGE disappointment. The graf scene was/is the last hurrah -NY is still pretty bombed (at least compared to other US cities). Other than that, I was born and raised but moved away 3+ years ago b/c I couldnt suffer it no more.
    May I refer you to the musings of Ricky Powell?

    I liked NY. I was in Footlocker waiting on my mate and flicking through my copy of Kool Moe Dee’s book. I got into a 3 way convo with the shop assistant and another customer about the merits Pete Rock and Common.
    you can’t do that in Guildford!

    you could do that in Guildford if you ran into Jazz-T & Chubby Alcoholic from Diversion Tactics in Footlocker. I think they live round there somewhere. Ps. Pete Rock + Common = A good combination
