Does the job. The buttons are a little stiff and need a good hard press to activate and when you're fumbling around to press stop or increase the volume it's sometimes hard to distinguish the difference between the buttons by feel alone.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a cartridge, 6 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The picture shows a HP box and the cartridge comes in something else, making you doubt the accuracy of the description. But at the end of the day it's a cartridge, it works and it's cheap.

5.0 out of 5 stars On the Road...with a Divine toilet, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: God-Box! (Kindle Edition)
Equal parts funny, filthy and moving, this is a great read and is particularly impressive given it's the author's first novel. Empathy comes easy with the main character and his surreal meanderings through a boozy Belgium. A whole new take on toilet humour. Great stuff.

Exactly what I needed - works perfectly. Why buy an adaptor when this is available? Great and prompt service as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tribulation Soundtracks, 11 July 2011
This review is from: Ingnodwetrust [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Gnod's 2010 collaboration with White Hills (Gnod Drop Out With White Hills II) was and remains a brilliant voyage through space rock, psyche and krautcore. However, with INGNODWETRUST, Gnod have delivered an album that deviates from these well trodden paths into something utterly enthralling and extraordinary.

Consisting of only two tracks, clocking in at 20:04 and 13:14 and taking up one side of this vinyl only release each, you might think you're being short-changed, but how wrong you'd be. Side A, `Tony's First Communion', presents a mesmerising throb of bass and drums, swirling guitars and incantations that can only be a soundtrack of cathartic resistance to memories of the ritual indicated by its title.

Yet it's on Side B's `Vatican' where Gnod have really delivered something very special: a heretical thomp of distorted drums and eschatological noise that shifts six minutes in - after a breakdown of demonic voices and hellish organs - to the sound of all that is apocalyptic. I've been living with this track for a few weeks now and it's still as disturbing a listen as when I first encountered it. The sound of The Tribulation and no mistake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glam Acid Spac Rock, 11 July 2011
This review is from: H-P1 (Audio CD)
Dear Sir/Madam. Please welcome your new Masters of the Universe, White Hills.

It might be that the force of our Hawk Lords is strong in this one but there is so much more to H-P1 than another trotting out of the Acid Space Rock formula. White Hills deserve this elevated status through a palpable striving for something different. `Movement', for example, is the sound of a reverbed guitar being repeatedly smacked into submission and is a brave gesture for an album's second track. Then there's the ambience of `I Need to Know' that segues into the sinister deep space noises of `Hand in Hand', or the heavy tribal drums with crafted feedback of `Monument'. Elsewhere, White Hills add a sparkle of glam and sleaze to their space-rock - `Upon Arrival' being the main case point.

White Hills know when to knock out a few gargantuan riffs and layer the guitars for maximum force - `The Condition of Nothing' kicks things off in such a vain - and when to transform tension into pleasure through repetition. The most ear-grabbing tune is `Paradise' - twelve minutes of intergalactic travel punctuated by the hiss of narrowly avoided space debris as you float in artificial amniotic gunk in a state of suspended animation (Look I like getting carried away with my space themes, ok?)

This is an album that shimmers and shines with ideas and class from start to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Giddy Turbulent Noise, 3 May 2011
This review is from: II (Audio CD)
Press play on most albums and you're given at least half a chance to settle down and prepare yourself for what is to come. The Psychic Paramount are obviously not interested in such luxuries. Instead you get an absolute battering of hyper speed guitars and bass, and a whirlwind of drums, from the very beginning of their latest output II. This initial mauling is repeated throughout and hence initial listens leave you thinking there's a lack of nuance and depth, but then it dawns there's a complexity and noisy subtlety (if that's not an oxymoron, which it is) to the whole thing.

Comparisons to Lighting Bolt are there for the discerning. Yet whereas the Bolt are the sound of drilling through the earth's crust, The Psychic Paramount are (for the most part) more akin to riding the thermals of aerial turbulence. This is one of those albums that is guaranteed to break humidity and fug and leaves you feeling delightfully dizzy and giddy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A semi-nostalgic trip to the past-future, 3 May 2011
This review is from: Autopia (MP3 Download)
One of the slight drawbacks of Kontakte's last album was the lack of motorik rhythms that made something really special of their former release. On discovering that one member, Neil Rudd, has left the band and formed Eat Lights; Become Lights, and after consuming the delights of Autopia, the reasons for this have become apparent (I think. The Great God of Google won't tell me if this is the exact sequence of events, but it seems to make sense). So this is a contemporary motorik release that is unashamedly obvious in its influences (the band have been described at London based Klub Motorik's `house band').

If you're going to do something with such an evident lineage then you'd better get it right - and Eat Lights; Become Lights get it spot on. With its sparkling and propulsive guitars and synths, ever forward pulsing rhythms and effortless melodies, Autopia evokes a velocity and movement that befits those modernist dreams of untrammeled mobility and freedom to which the motorik sound pays homage. As so composed, Eat Lights provide a soundtrack to those almost forgotten utopic visions of efficient travel, wherein concrete shone bright, tarmac glistened with hope and motorway services had the aura and mystique of orbiting space stations.

Jetpacks might not be included, but if you want a semi-nostalgic trip to the past-future Autopia is worth tracking down.
