Gardaí are to be issued with pepper spray canisters to enable them to deal with the increasing number of attacks on unarmed officers.
Minister for Justice Dermot Ahern is to announce that the Government has sanctioned the supply of the 'less-than-lethal' weapon to all uniformed and unarmed gardaí.
The decision was taken following approval by Garda Commissioner Fachtna 'less than lethal' Murphy.
...and to give you an idea of just one of the many uses for this wonderful product, here's the bwais in action back in 2006 getting stuck in to some dangerous people(students), armed only with their batons. Brave men.
Join The Fun!

Thank God for the Irish media. A closed shop, protected by stringent laws that ensure not one genuine pirate broadcaster exists on the island, it does its best to protect its flock from any subversive notions, like a latterday John Charles McQuaid. Stll, without Irish TV we never would have learnt that 'Rap' (as opposed to mid-atlantic 'indie' wank), didn't originate in Ireland. You live and learn.
I'd been meaning to post something from Brigadier JC for a bit now, and today he sent me this slice of 165bpm wonkyness (or thereabouts), 'Jazzman Terror'.
A native of Brittany, he's been DJing around Limerick City since he arrived in Ireland in '03, and is soon moving on from these shores, back to the continent. His own productions vary in tempo and feel, but always have their heartbeat rooted in the dub. Enjoy this clip.

This thursday sees the start of DEAF (Dublin Electronic Arts Festival), when Dublin City is overrun with beards, and the sound of sandals hitting concrete. As these pale and bony knob twiddlers emerge from their fleapit studios to converge on the city for four days, there is much to choose from. But I cant be bothered, so check HERE. Unfortunately, I'd never define myself as a fan of 'electronic' music per se, coz I've forgotten what it means after 30 odd years of being told its what I'm 'in to.' But, I'm just into good music of varying degrees of electronic interference. So, I'll be staying in bed crying for most of it...bar Friday.
On Friday The mysterious Push Move Click are making their debut upstairs in The Twist O' Lemon (or whatever the fuck its called now), where the trio will be squeezing their analogue experimentalism through a Function One sound. Grizzle will be debuting his home made touch screen drum machine on the night - see below....
Plus, later the same night we'll all bail downstairs for the Dirty Collective's annual shindig. I've no idea what the plan is for the night, so I'll say its going to be great craic. Come along and support the Crew.

Here's a short promo for the forthcoming book on Dublin's Youth Tribes from the 60s to the 90s.
Author Gary O'Neill claims to be about 80% finished, but needs your help. Any dubs out there with some auld snaps should send them on to him HERE. More B-boys from back in the day needed I reckon...
