    i love this like no other.

    i was a student in a small college town in 1996 when i experienced my first rave in a little coffee shop. house music was new to me and unlike anything i had ever heard before. having to own some myself, i walked into a record store the next day and walked out with ‘weekend’. to this day, it remains the best set i’ve ever heard. from the opening haunting sounds of ‘hooligan food’, to the tempo change at ‘kupuri’, the warbly bass lines that kick in at ‘just get up and dance’, to the sirens of ‘santa cruz’, this set is truly a journey.

    it was nice to read this cd was pivotal for you, as i have always considered ‘weekend’ the beginning of everything that i love about music now. thank you.

    OK Gavin,
    THe three cds that you , scott , and robbie did was the inspiration to me wanting to dj and produce. after i heard of the hardkiss brothers i was hook for sure , i started collecting the hardkiss label (Delusions of Grandeur is the only vinyl album art i dont have ). i even got to educate people with your cds ( just by letting them listen to them). i have got to open for you and and robbie in nashville tn and that was a dream , Thank you . i even got the hardkiss tree tattooed on my neck !!so im a huge fan and i just wanted to let you know that i really appreciate everything musically you have done and you and the hardkiss family will always be in my heart and soul!!!!!

    I noticed a copy of Hooligan Food is currently available on Ebay. I checked recently for an MP3 and still no dice. This was a definite Gem! Thanks again
