VIDEO: MARK DEVLIN INTERVIEWS CARL JAMES RE THE MOVIES OF STANLEY KUBRICK

Carl James has made an excellent video of the podcast chat we had last year about hidden symbolism and allegory in the movies of Stanley Kubrick, and some of the revealing social circles that Kubrick moved in. The images really bring the story to life.

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 90: SONIA POULTON - TUPAC & BIGGIE 20TH ANNIVERSARIES

On the 20th anniversary of the murder of Notorious BIG, I thought it was worth re-posting my conversation of a few months ago with Sonia Poulton, reflecting on both that event and the previous killing of 2Pac. I’m sure the LA and Las Vegas cops are still hard at work on trying to solve both cases as we speak.



This podcast is being published on the 20th anniversary of the murder of Tupac Shakur. The murder of his friend-turned-adversary Notorious BIG followed in almost identical circumstances six months later. Guesting to talk at length about these crimes is journalist Sonia Poulton. Sonia is well-known for her contemporary work in both the mainstream and alternative media, but prior to this she was a hip-hop journalist, writing for Black Echoes magazine, appearing on Max & Dave's hip-hop show on Kiss FM in the early 90s, and touring with Notorious BIG in Europe.

We revisit the fateful nights of September 1996 and March 1997, examining some of the detail, and speculating on how it's possible for two such high-profile killings, occurring on two of the busiest streets in the world, to still be "unsolved." This is put into the wider context of the hip-hop landscape of the time, notably the so-called 'East Coast/ West Coast Beef.' Suge Knight, Sean 'Puffy' Combs, Dr. Dre and Eazy E are other prominent figures to get discussed.

In many ways, the murder of these two highly influential artists was symbolic of the 'death' of the once-meaningful, and highly potent artform of hip-hop, with what purports to be that scene - at least in the mainstream - now a total sick joke and toxic caricature of its former self.

Sonia concludes by touching on her recent absence from the public spotlight, unveiling details of her current journalistic projects.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: NOTORIOUS B.I.G, 20 YEARS ON

“’Cos the greatest rapper of all time died on March 9th.”

20 years ago today Notorious BIG was gunned down in Los Angeles. Two decades on the LAPD still don’t seem to be able to find who did it. I’m sure they’ve been working really hard on it though, bless them.

I can remember clearly being told the news on a Monday morning back in 1997. I was working in a magazine office at the time, and a sleazy sales guy came in grinning, saying ‘I bet you’re in morning today.’ When I asked him what he meant he said, ‘you know, that fat rapper who was shot.’ I called DJ Diggz who I worked with on Galaxy 101 to get confirmation, and he’d already heard. The next call was to Jamie Topham at the UK office of Arista to get an official statement.

Here’s the tribute section to Biggie that I broadcast on my Galaxy show that week. R.I.P Biggie.
