Various – Best of Down & Wired 4
Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Best of Down & Wired 4

Image: 1610097 Get ready for two brand-spanking new chapters in Perfect Toy’s high octane, Down & Wired series of garage-mod-soul nuggets because the label has once again persuaded the man responsible for Volumes 1 and 2 – crate digger par excellence ‘Chan The Man’ – to unearth even more gems from his record collection!

The goodness kicks off with Babe Wallace’s virtually unknown, but irresistible, big band rhythm & blues monster Dizengoff which mixes up English and Yiddish lyrics followed by a cover (easily the best one you’ve never heard) of Allen Toussaint’s New Orleans funk classic Get Out Of My Life Woman by the Fabulous Impacts. Elsewhere, East Side Blues as well as Guitar Murphy deliver two solid mod instrumentals. There’s also room for The Inn Crowd’s super-rare harmonica-drenched groover Run Clarence Run and Friends’ My Land which sandwiches two minutes of organ-led craziness between its deceptively mellow intro and outro. Towards the end of this epic release comes yet another cover in the form of Hendrix’ Foxy Lady by 49th Blue Streak. The funked-up Right On may remind us to the mid 70s funk sound of The Meters and there’s an appropriate closer in the form of George Brigman’s hypnotic Drifting.

This is a super-hot collection of vintage rarities (accompanied by detailed liner notes and never-before-seen photos of the artists!) imbued with all the glorious imperfections of the golden age of the analogue era that artists now often strive so hard to recreate. Little surprise then that these cuts should sound so fresh today. Available on vinyl LP, CD and digital download.

NEP – Decadence
Friday, October 13th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on NEP – Decadence

Image: 1615738 NEP was a loose multimedia collective formed in 1982 Zagreb, ex-Yugoslavia. The founder Dejan Krsic collaborated with various artists in a quest of re-thinking the stale concepts of art history, position of the author and the barriers between pop and elitist high culture. Heavily influenced by Walter Benjamin and Andy Warhol in theory and Brian Eno and Kraftwerk in music, Krsic created NEP as an umbrella term (meaning Nova Evropa) of diverse rule-breaking activities, covering graphic design, music, photography, video, news-media and theoretical work. Musically NEP focused on experiments in ambient and tape-music, mostly self-released or hard to find compilations like “The Cassette Played Poptones” (1988). Deeply immersed in pop-culture, politics and art theory Krsic’s search for perfect pop music with cutting critical edge peaked in 1989, the year Decadance track was conceived in studio, but has never been published. Pumping Roland 808 beats, with sampled vocals from Linda Cooper asking herself “How do I dance to this music” were chosen by Fox & His Friends label owners Leri Ahel and Zeljko Luketic for a 12″ opener of the unknown NEP’s pop history. This single is a sneak-peak into the world of POP NOT POP, the album and a graphic book merged into one multimedia entity, to be released later this year. All material is restored and mastered from original reel-to-reel tapes and presented on wax for the first time and for this occasion, deconstructed and reinvented in a remix B-side by Snuffo, masked hero of the Snuff Crew fame. Snuffo splitted the title vocal into a new cut-up, now telling “Dance to this music” to its audiences. And indeed, NEP’s Decadance is meant to be danced to, either side you choose to play. NEP on this 1989 track was led by Dejan Krsic, now famous graphic designer and art historian in Croatia, but other collaborators include Laibach and Borghesia photographer Jane Stravs, artist and TV director Gordana Brzovic, Jovan Culibrk, now Bishop at The Serbian Orthodox Church and Anja Rupel, singer of cult Yugoslavian synth-pop group Videosex.

DJ Format’s Psych Out is a compilation of records from around the world that Format
WISHES he could play at clubs every weekend. Some of the tracks are hard to
categorise…kind of psychedelic, kind of funky, kind of crazy…but most have unmistakable
blend of distorted electric guitars, driving basslines and pounding drums. Maybe you didn’t
think it was possible for “Foxy Lady” to be played any harder…but 49th Blue Streak did it.
“Hava Nagila” never really seemed likely to lend itself to a psychedelic reworking…but The
Quests from Singapore thought differently. In Germany, The CT Four Plus did away with
boring tradition and instead praised God with their electric guitars. Advertising executives in
France thought it best to spread the word of their new chocolate bar by commissioning the
Bana Pop Band to make a cool 7″ flexi disc record. These are just a few examples of how
the boundaries of music were being pushed in the late ’60s & early ’70s when most of these
exciting recordings were made.
In DJ Format’s own words:
The idea for this compilation came about because of my search for a rare psych/funk 7″
that isn’t even included here! My friend DJ Oneofakind played me the said record and I
totally lost my mind. Some months later after a lot of asking around and searching online, a
copy turned up on Discogs.com for a painful amount of money. I contacted the seller to ask
a couple of questions and it turned out I was talking to Jake Holloway, BBE’s in-house
designer. I’d loosely known Jake for a few years through mutual friends so we quickly
arranged a time to meet and take care of business. Jake told me he’d offered the 7″ to a
few other DJ/collector friends but they’d passed on it as it was ‘too heavy’ for them. This got
us talking about my love for psych records with a funky slant and I explained my frustration
at buying so many records that fit that description, that were ‘too heavy’ to play at my typical
DJ gigs. Jake had the perfect solution: “why don’t you do a compilation of funky, fuzzed-out
psych stuff for BBE?”.

It’s almost an overwrought subject to mention the power of names; the idea whether they choose us or we choose them and if, in reality there is any difference. Religious converts, celebrities, super heroes–they all take on names that fit their attributes, their ideas of self. Malcolm X. Marilyn Monroe. Superman. Mudfoot. Doesn’t sound right. […]

Holy moly, the year 2005 is almost over. And so many changes happened we can’t even remember. Most recently we had to congratulate Mrs. Merkel for becoming the first female chancellor of Germany, but honestly nobody really cared. As always the much more important news came from overseas. Have you heard that our beloved newlyweds Jessica and Nick split up after they had stolen the hearts of audiences everywhere? And Britney sold Kevin’s Ferrari. Oh boy…But through all these times of melancholy one thing will remain the same and stay forever, and that’s our pure love for music.

So in good ol’ tradition we asked around what Groove Attack’s employees have been listening to in 2005. Read on ‘cuz this list is for you …
