R.I.P Channel U/AKA

"It looks like it's just me n da girls
Because all the mandem are doin' sumfin' else"

Gemini - Me N Da Girls
(From Channel U; 2007 or 2008)

We'll always have Gemini's Me N Da Girls even if 90% of the other songs played on Channel U were only notable for their struggle comedy value. We can try but we'll never forget Bearman, Mr. Wong, Jelluzz, and Tulisa's coke dealer m8 Mike GLC.

AKA was mah spot, though. Where else on national British telly could you catch videos by Donae'o, Giggs, Kwamz & Flava, J Hus, Young T & Bugsey, and Maleek Berry next to videos by YG, Spice, Tinashe, Rich Homie Quan, Busy Signal, and Tay-K, followed by a Best of Snoop video hour? Ya host's bouts of summer insomnia are gonna be precisely 95% more boring from hereon in unless KerrangTV do regular Danzig specials or NOW 80s start showing Fun Boy Three videographies.

Get Elton John in to perform Candle N Da Wind for Freeview channel number 373 innit. Above the clouds with .TV, Bravo and that quiz station Suzanne Cowie used to present on.

I spent Dec 04 "between jobs" getting high and watching Channel U for comedy value but certain tunes became favourites after a while. Southside All stars, Ashman, Regal Players and Nasty Cru were all big.
