i've started this 'cos our myspace blog is no-longer viewable with the current html set-up, and i think it's nice to have a dedicated blog to our goings-onz.

so i've got to give a back story... here's a long-arse copy and paste job of our prev. entries... [hope all this html works!]

n.b there'll be a few hyper-links lost in translation and perhaps a few error404s if you try and link to some pictures, but we'll what-up

RIP Willian Claxton

[mostly lifted from the Gurdian's G2 section 15th oct]


when i saw the above pic in yesterday's paper, i didn't fully understand the implications, this stunning pic of the great Chet Baker, and read the article, only to discover the great William Claxton had died aged 80.

'"He loved the camera, gave himself to it," Claxton said, and his photos made Baker the white poster boy of cool jazz: pouting in the arms of beautiful women, but always with that cowboy thing, the middle-distance look in his eyes.'


'Thelonious Monk looms into focus with the room receding and converging on him as if some lop-sided gravity is at work. As Bill Evans hunches over the keyboard there is so little to be seen - ear, hair, neck, a glimpse of spectacles - that he shouldn't be recognisable but, like the lightest touch of his fingers on the keys, these few details are enough to identify him immediately and reveal the admonition at the heart of his technique: it takes more strength to caress the keys that to pound them'


'Claxton's people are rarely crowded by the picture frame. (In the case of Ray Charles, the tight framing struggles to contain the intensely orchestrated energy of the playing.)'


'...Here is Elvin Jones. That's right, Elvin Jones, Coltrane's right- (and left!) hand man, looking as approachable as anyone in the street, as ordinary as an old sweater. That's Claxton in a nutshell: everyday greatness and a charged sense of the ordinary in the same instant.'

here are some other greats by Claxton:




and to close, the definitive quote from the article

'The transformation of suffering into beauty is a romantic commonplace but Claxton's unashamed lyricism is one of his - and Pepper's - strengths.'

Pay attention to the Minor Details,

Another foetus fails in her mother's womb, but it's young love that's left her cruel,

Sixteen-and-a-half already runs her own crew,

Hates girls that love boys, and she knows how to tool up,

A Joan of Arc, she's Braveheart tough,

Escaped a few scrums in her time looking for touch,

Hitting them white lines but she's never looking smug,

Still remembers the first time she was caught out then dropped,

Permanently holding dates in ink,

Where others held butterflies, just a young girls abnormal side,

Cut from her fathers side & moulded from her mothers lies,

But too cold,

Can't unlock the hate in her eyes,

Inclined to distance from all philosophical minds,

Keep talking I'll lead you to the lions den,

You're walking backwards over our giant steps,

Time expands and rewinds only lies are left,

Deft change,

You're sucking on our dying breath

Her whole life was a contradiction,

A fictional vixen who adored my spitting?

Or another sex kitten lost within the world's realms,

Brushing leaves of serrated elms,

Cut climbing,

She lacked height and was constantly frightened,

Modern day Zachieus type, holding spite,

Against all people,

Especially men! She thought they were evil,

Loved her mum, dad left when she was young,

Left strung she clung to her mum,

Bravehearted, holding her guns,

Welcomed open arms,

Fairy tales and ebony charm,

Was all need not want,

And help being distanced from harm,

I held her in my palm for a while,

But mistrust from guile, followed erasure of pessimist smiles,

Shared some views crazed on how to be more hostile,

Never thought she'd try flip that on me,

Didn't expect her to be so weak,

Never thought she'd try flip that on me,

Didn't expect her to be so weak

j-mode/miami mode/night mode/no-mode/other mode etc will be greatly missed by his friends and family, and the stortford music scene wont be the same without him. as an avid blogger, cat lover and general b-boy with a tea addiction and some next level beat juggling skills, i ask everyone to keep his youtube channel, facebook and myspace alive [links at the end]

So we have been dormant on the blogging front for a bit, so here's what's been going on.

Recently we've been gigging in and around London, with two shows at Nottinghill's prestigious Arts club, Plan B in Brixton and Cargo.

Last night though, we did our very first acoustic gig! The set ran as follows:

So What
The Loot
What we have
Funny Things [Nardis]
Backyard Jungle

followed [after my wrist nearly giving up on me!] by...

In Due Time [extended intro mix!]
She Said
Iambic Chess [the return]
Impressive Steps 1+2
Golden Fools
Junk Monk

was a lovely occasion at Stansted's one and only wine/tapas bar [flutes] I think we may be back there in the new year to do it again. Much love goes out to Lauren, Rory, Byrns, Becka, Pringle, Jamieson and O'Neill Clans... Steve plus guests, a certain someone who was not there in actuality but was in spirit [no, not God] all staff at Flutes, Faye, Lloyd, Ollie and his misses, Mrs Charhin, Bamboo Loud crew, Onion Man, Alena and Daryl [Gash mate what happened to you?] also magical Joe and misses - where were you? missed out on a once a year thing. Tut.

And special thanks to Owen who filmed loads of it on his phone, so maybe a youtube link to come?

Well done us boys anyway. All played well, encore was good too. Next time ey...


The Minor Details EP is available to buy from our myspace, via PayPal, at a very reasonable price.

Current mood: quixotic
Category: Religion and Philosophy

Shatter the final hourglass,

Breaking down bourgeois class systems,

Fast-fading into cleft rhythms,

Head spinning,

Unknown dis'respeck'in

Gherkin disposing,

That left women,

Melanin dry,

….just thoughts of my brehs getting too high,

questioned why, 3.14 was equalling p

crazy delusions misinterpret as a j-t sign

could never be illuminati,

still hating the light,

pure dark breh,

not sure where you gonna start,

well you best start here,

broadcast in your ears,

why you checking skies for fanfares,

overcast fools claiming SAD,

hypochondriacs bombed my school last week!

I learnt to preach then speak,

Whilst you spent your years learning how to beat them freaks?!

You know what,

They're calling me the beatnik freak

My final piece will be that masterpiece,

Something to put your mind at ease,

Whilst you just groove with the beat,

Internally degrade,

My mind moves through a new phase,

never late to ponder your old ways

Transcend to another, element,

Peel my own, flesh again?!

Confused how my ribs bend in,

No corners on square boxes,

Just coroners on dark edges,

Waiting for the lawless to perish!

Mutly Dastard the bastard child,

Records every death wish,

With that dick dastardly smile,

Piles their bodies into the furnace,

But never burnt kids,

Learnt his trade from a Christian aid,

Last nobleman to return to a slave,

Unphased by copious blood,

And all them guts spilt on rugs,

Clubs were death tools,

Confused ones played with their balls,

Thinking of joining something new?

Right on cue for jumping through hoops,

I make a quantum leap,

in a decade where your snooze over hangs,


black man

in charge

of the

KK clan,

almost destroyed the master plan,

but one change could've brought the world back

OK OK.....

2007 has opened up with a BANG!!

So far…. a handful of live shows, photoshoots, meetings, writing new material…… and completing the EP…..

STILL, there's more to come – we are currently finalising details for the EP promo party/s…with it looking as though there will be 1 taking place at a venue in London & another at a venue in/around Bishops Stortford in Mid Spring.

We are also in the process of pressing a limited number of promo EP's – that will be available at these live shows.

As soon as we have confirmed dates & venues we will be posting them up on our myspace.

In the meantime we will be playing a set at: The Good Ship, Kilburn, NW London on Friday 9th March – more details on this will be up on our myspace soon.

The EP:

J-Treole would also like to say a big thanks to all who have contributed towards the EP:

gigs and stuff

yer so we played at 'the rinse' last friday (rhodes centre bishops stortford thanx max) set order ran like this:

so what
iambic chess (poetry whatever)
impressions/giant steps
some random jam
jump monk

basicly we were suposed to play with a DJ called j-mode (doing some turntabilism, mfon b2b max etc) but he never showed so we blagged a few jams and i duno how they went down... the sound guys proper fucked up too, loadsa feedback and shitty sound, but it's all experience

shouts to all at the band obv. max, gash, stevie, chicken+rice, onion man, snakebitch, daryl (managment) ruth justin, dave's sister, anyone who supplied transport, anyone i've forgoten and my lovely g/f (emilililily) and it''s our 3 month aniversary this tuesday :):):):):)

we're next at the three colts in stansted on the 26th of may, suypporting the tymes. go there, get startled. blap

j-treole are also under new managment: the furious D 9daryle bar of circle line/jokers wild/dirty paris fame) is stepping up to the challenge of getting our asses organised... a new era in j-treole|? we hope so - watch this space heads.

got too much college work to even begin thinking about... shit

big up david gain for reading my blogs too

double blog!!
Current mood: nostalgic

wa gwarn heads.

first off:


i didn't get round to blogging this as i am a lazy motherfucker and i got really drunk after the gig then fell over. we were okay. proper disorganised! my fault as i require 200 power points and didnt bring a 4 pin plug but we sorted it (big up JP for that, we'da been lost without ya)

unf. everyone fucked off when the fun loving criminals (whoever they are?) went on at the junction next door. lame. but we pulled a few more people in once they finished.

shout outs go to: every1 at nusha, JP for the power supplys, all st. ivo people (fest and guiles, faye, sineaD and the other guy) everyone at 'once forgotten'! elanor moody foir buying me shit loadsa drinks, bean carr for always turning up to the dappa gigs, guy avern for turning up, flyering then fucking off. that dude with the dreads, d-mak and maliki, and of course, tom morris (you are truley a king amoungst men, soz i missed ur bday, i was in bulge area) i havnt forgotten u ziggy marlon, thanx 4 the support, caroline and her b/f too, plus any1 else i've forgotten... OOPS!

yer so

Bulge area 2006 (CRC represent)

yer, well, night of most noteable was the first when i got really fuc king pissed (3 or 4 stellas, bottle of random shit, quad jim beam, shit loada ren wine and 2 oe 3 cocktails...) yer well i had maybe the funniest convo with my lovley girlfriend while both of us where under a table (despite being on opposite sides of europe) then i passed out and woke up in a pool of my own vomit on the floor! ahhahaha

btw sorry bout that george... i actually was unconsicouse (sp.) and wuda got up... if i cud. thanx 4 saving my life!!

yer well. skiing was okay, but resort was small. it was feckin cold for a few days too, ran outa money, fucking bulge area dosnt accept solo card too (what a wank country!?)

big ups go out to: tom, lewis, toni, erin and mr. consoli (pos. the coolest heads on the trip) jonnhy b good, that dude with the tool t-shirt who sorted me zoot, dom and zac, all box social crew (no long talkers!!) john gentleman, plougman the ski instructor, all those cute northen irish people (yer we rent ur country's ass!) PODGRICK! ludvik (chicago bulls!) and all those twats selling bells on the slopes. coco (sorry we never made it to paralax with you!) george of course (your dancefloor moves almost matched mine!) every1 at the white heart, dax, trendy techno cocktail bar, supermarket (for me longing you all out asking what all the sandwiches were in english) anyone i cut up on the slopes (after all i am a badman!) and anyone else i forgot you miserable bastards...
i got really drunk and taught everyone how to dance... what crazy things alcohol will do...

yer. i missed my lovley girlfirend SOOOOOOOOOOOO much i wanted 2 leave after 2 days, but there you go :( apparently she had a crap week too, so we were kinda matched. im not saying bulge area was shit... just not great

anyway i can't wait to see you if you're reading em. love ya! xxx

*edit* quite note to mention; tune of the trip would be definetly be 'today's special' by break, with much thanx going out to dj shnyde (chicken and rice) for that mix tape as i sessioned that while skiing.

just had a sketchy dream
Current mood: indescribable

okay, so it's tuesday night, and i decided to 'old man nap' as gash calls it, after myself and buddle were talking about sleep paralasys and lucid dreaming all day (sp.)

so this dream

for some reason, seb myself and tim were driving back from newport areas, and we were in tim's car (though seb was driving) i don't know what we were doing, but i remeber something about getting a present for someone, and i remeber herbz was on, cos as we enetered ugly, i joked about hearing a gabba kick, but as we drove through, across from where the village hall was was a huge militery base (area 51 stylee) areoplanes, helicopters, silos and everything

the whole place was changed, i remeber i was just about to throw the remains of a costa sandwich out the window, and we were signaled to pull over by some dude (incidently he was eating a brie grape and chicken costa sandwich) we drove past, but some dude with a megaphone signaled for us to do a u-turn in the village hall, we did so... all a little worried

initially i thought we'd been busted cos i was gona chuck the sandwich out the window, then i realised seb was driving tim's car, but we got out of the car and went into the village hall, were a few people were scattered about looking distressed.

all i could hear was a lots of people all in unison counting down from 47 and then once they reached 1 they started again. i have no idea why.

i saw this middle aged woman, looking particually distressed. i was getting vexed as we were being detained for reasons unknown to me, and i'm a cocky kinda person. we got talking and i wa sugesting the people outside were counting down from 47 then one of them died (sorta like the film logan's run ish)

she indicated for me to look around and i saw families and young pepople etc, i realised my speculation was doing nohting for morale. she said she tried to go out there, but she felt although someone was stopping her, because she wasn't ready. she said something about god.

as far as i can remeber i thought about them not letting her outside. thinking what i must take (mentally aND spiritually) to see what ever it is that was happening out there, it was weird.

the only details i've missed out were that the village hall was sort of like the post office, and there was a kiosk to my left, though this was occupied by the people who'd pulled us over and stuff... anyway this has no relevence

then i woke up cos i had a phone call.

anyway that's my dream! buddle and i discussed dream recall today, so this is my dream recall!

one for you em
Current mood: good

hello subscribers, em, fans of jtreole, randoms and misc

what's up. currently i am listning to dj/rupture's rmx of high resolution (check this out serously) it's on the mindsweeper suit, by the same artist. scary stuff

anyway. my lovley g/f has returned from her voyage to italy, more like a cruisade (sp.) but there you go. so glad to see her again :):):) im around this week then i have a gig next week

right gig time. if you don't go you will be inpotent forever and will get sacked from your jobs whatever you do. this excludes anyone who actually can't come or who hasn't been invited

anyway, our usual set will be in full effect (nardis, so what, blue in green, iambic 9 poetry (that 1s 4 u gem) summertime, portrait of tracy, giant steps, a little jam and any other tunes i forget about) plus 2 new ones, impressions (jonny coltraine) and 'when the world turns blue' (courtney pine rmxd by 4hero... big up!)

go there, for sure, even all those st. ives ppl promised they'd be there. we may go for all you can eat chinese first, but i have no appetite.

dj set will include fresh jazz, trad jazz, electro, rare groove, nu-jazz, abstract hip hop, destiny's child rmxs, some breakbeat, floaty bill evans, hard bop, latin (sex in the city theme tune *may* make a return) and some badly drawn boy thrown in to piss everyone off! yer!

damn this is a long blog

go away and return to your lives!

if you're still reading... STOP

for em xxxx
