Chess is as elaborate a waste of human intelligence as you can find outside an advertising agency
A bit of sour grapes here. I tried to play chess when I was younger. But I have neither the patience nor the ability to think through multiple moves to be anything other than foolhardy at the game. And its the sort of game that simply seemed to encourage snobbery and an expectation that we should bow down to those who were good at it or were able to bandy around terms such as Sicilian Defence. I was much more impressed by anyone who could do the Cruyff turn. Defend that.
Nevertheless, Irregular Expression has been playing chess and produced Checkmate, a future jazz hip hop tune that is perfect lazing in the sun music. The beats are slow enough to accommodate when it’s this hot. Free download.
