Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

If you're the great-nephew of the Hungarian film magnates Alexander and Zoltan Korda and son of Simon & Schuster Editor-In-Chief Michael Korda, you can probably afford a little trust-fund decadence. The Reverend Chris Korda's takes a slightly more unusual form than most. In the early 1990s, he set up his own Neo-Malthusian quasi-religious order, The Church Of Euthanasia, designed to encourage as many people as possible to kill themselves in order to "save the planet". Although the cross-dressing Jerry Springer appearances suggest that he wasn't entirely serious, his website has been linked to at least one death and a BBC radio documentary alleged that people using the church's banner had been actively encouraging vulnerable people to commit suicide. On the side, he made some rather decent housey electro, the pinnacle of his brief recording career being the tremendous When It Rains.

    If I ever network my way in to meeting Michael Korda, I can schmooze him by saying I liked his son's songs!
