Can you put those flyers side by side rather on top of each other?

Just make them into one picture, with them side by side. Then have that as your sog instead. Should be able to do it in paint, or any other graphics program.

On topic: UR are the shit.

Massive respect for them, but the underground thing stopped making sense when Mills and Hood jumped off the bandagwon. Their music is still great, though.

Thats not really selling out though is it?

They haven't started making mainstream music just for $$$ - they have stuck to their own style and their own mission.

If a track by Skream suddenly took off and got used on an advert - would you accuse him of selling out just because more people like his music?

Theres a difference between selling out, and making a bit of money from the music you love.

I must say that when I heard the rumour about them licencing I was pretty surprised. This is UR we are talking about here...its kinda hypocritical given the militant stance UR take on these kind of things.

Still, big em up...Got a lot of love for UR.

Just watched that - top geezer. Cool that they're sorting their community too. Not techno, but much respect should also go to Dischord, Fugazi's label as they've got pretty good ethics and don't play the corporate game, keeping their prices down and ensuring their fans aren't ripped off.
Hmm....

it seems that this is actually some weird practical joke thing on the part of UR. the aforementioned beer company and the town it was supposed to be in...neither of them actually exist. so...go figger...i think mad mike is trying to fuck with people.

underground resistance has been a huge inspiration for me, musically as well as philosophically. one of the best moments of my life was playing with mad mike standing right behind me, and then having a conversation about, of all things, baseball. that guy will talk yer ear off about baseball. seriously.

that motherfucker is cool! dude was rocking a rat tail, tore up jeans and combat boots when i met him. just meeting him and spending a day at submerge listing to records really changed the way i viewed many things musically and otherwise.

when the full UR squad played at club69 in paisley a few years back, mike stopped the music and made everyone there sign a petition to stop some old ladys music cafe getting closed.looking after the community indeed.


regarding these flyers, they are annoying me too, but i dont have any graphics programs, so if anyone wants to fix it, ill be most gratefull.
