Q u o t e s

“One of the 50 coolest records ever made” (Rolling Stone)

“Their message? The Unforgotten suffering of their Ancestors as they toiled, in blood sweat and tears only to perish. Their jubilation ? The Realisation that for this inhuman act, someday, Babylon will pay” (Joe Gibbs)

“There has been no other artist in history of reggae that has written so much upliftings songs using only major chord progressions…” (David Hinds / Steel Pulse)

“Culture has made his mark. It was a good mark, a firm mark. When people say reggae music, they will always think of Culture. Culture’s musical philosophy will live on” (Winston Rodney / Burning Spear)

“From the time we walked into studio it was a special session…whenever Joseph (Hill) came into Gibbo’s studio it was special. When we play with him it was just like magic” (Sly Dunbar)

“The omniously foreshadowed title track, and its surrounding brethren, carry their redemptive air lightly, the skip of skittering rhythms and humorous asides from the organ framing Culture’s triparite harmony, Hill rough-edged, the backgrounds flirting with the falsetto” (Lenny Kaye)

“This album ranks as one of the greatest reggae albums ever recorded. It still sounds as fresh today as it did when I first heard it” (Mick Hucknall / Simply Red)

The rumour for the Culture song “Two Sevens Clash” and The Clash:
“It was Paul Simenon who suggested calling the band the Clash. The name derives from a reggae track released in Jamaica in 1976 by Culture called “Two Sevens Clash” (quote from the book by Jon Stratton “Jewish Identity In Western Pop Culture” / chapter “Bernie Rhodes and Displaced Apocalypse”)

Various – Mr Bongo Record Club Vol.1
Saturday, October 8th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Mr Bongo Record Club Vol.1

Image: 1606835 First installment in the new ‘Mr Bongo Record Club’ compilation series – a selection of favourites, recent discoveries and sought after obscurities. Including cuts by Claudia, Cortex, Dave Pike Set, Fruko, Neno Exporta Som, Connie Laverne, Barbosa and more.

The original concept for ‘Mr Bongo Record Club’ was a radio show that allowed us to air our treasured record collections, recorded and broadcast once a month. We wanted to create an outlet free from any genre or BPM restrictions, not constrained by the need to beat-mix every record, a space where we could play latest finds alongside favourites. The only self-imposed rule being that it had to be played from vinyl. We have always DJ’d across-the-board, but playing in an eclectic way hasn’t always been easy. Recently DJ’s such as MCDE, Floating Points, Nick The Record, Leon Vynehall, Four Tet, Jeremy Underground, Antal (Rush Hour), Sassy J and Young Marco – to name a few – have opened things up with very diverse sets to younger audiences, Brazilian samba-rock, next to modern soul, highlife, disco, boogie, jazz, house, techno and beyond. We’re seeing a rare groove like sensibility. A shift towards the attitude of legendary club nights hosted by the likes of Mr Scruff and Gilles Peterson, where you could hear house, hip hop, Turkish funk, boogie, jazz, dub and Latin back to back. At the same time it isn’t a nostalgic or retro movement, people have a progressive attitude and a thirst for new-old music. It is a vibrant and exciting time – we are proud to be a part of it.

Various – Hungarian Noir – A Tribute To The Gloomy Sunday
Friday, April 1st, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Hungarian Noir – A Tribute To The Gloomy Sunday

Image: 1602314 It is the world’s deadliest song, a musical composition so lethal that merely to hear it hummed
may induce suicidal tendencies. It is “Gloomy Sunday”, public menace of such potentially
epidemic proportions the BBC was compelled to ban it for decades. Indeed, if contemporary
news reports and eyewitness accounts are to be believed, no other song comes close to it for
sheer morbidity.
“Helter Skelter”? The Manson murders were horrific, to be sure, but the role of the Beatles’
song in those tragic deaths was incidental at best, and in the end, seven lives were claimed,
the number of fragile souls, meanwhile, to have succumbed to the unrelenting lugubriousness
of “Gloomy Sunday” may number in the hundreds if not the thousands.
“Better By You, Better Than Me”? When played backwards, a US lawsuit alleged, this 1990
Judas Priest song prompts listeners to “do it” and commit suicide. But how deadly can a
song be which must be listened to backwards? “Gloomy Sunday’s” impact is direct and
instantaneous. One need only recall the story of the Roman shop boy who, hearing a beggar
hum it, handed the man his money and jumped from the nearest bridge. Hungarian pianist
and composer Reszo Seress wrote the original music and lyrics for Szomorú Vasárnap –
Gloomy Sunday – in 1933, while heartbroken over the break-up of a romance. Though local
publishers initially rejected the song as too despairing, a new version with less forlorn lyrics
by poet Laszlo Javor became an instant hit – and began claiming innocent lives almost
immediately.
The song’s first victim, it is said, was the woman for whom it was penned. In the wake of
its initial success, Seress’ ex-lover poisoned herself, leaving a suicide note of just two words:
“Gloomy Sunday.” Hers was but the beginning of a wave of “Gloomy Sunday” suicides that
ravaged Budapest in the 1930s. According to a US newspaper report from the time, “Budapest
police have branded the song ‘Gloomy Sunday’ public menace No. 1 and have asked all
musicians and orchestras to cooperate in suppressing it, dispatches said Today.”
No one was immune, the article claimed. “Men, women and children are among the victims.
Two people shot themselves while gypsies played the melancholy notes on violins. Some
killed themselves while listening to it on gramophone records in their homes. Two housemaids
cut their employers’ linens and paintings and then killed themselves after hearing the song
drifting up into the servant‘s hall from dinner parties.”
Seress was never prosecuted for the havoc his song unleashed (though fate may have caught
up with him in 1968, when he leapt to his own death), but he and Javor alone can hardly be
held responsible for “Gloomy Sunday’s” death toll. Like a plague, the song has spread, passed
along by some of the most reckless and reprobate “artists” of our times.
Paul Robeson introduced the English version in 1935. Billie Holiday immortalised it in 1941.
Björk, Ray Charles, Marianne Faithfull, Serge Gainsbourg, Diamanda Galas, Pyotr Leshchenko,
Kronos Quartett – this list of infamy goes on and on. And now we can add to it the
ultimate act of music industry callousness and irresponsibility – the release by Piranha
Records of a collection of 10 new versions of “Gloomy Sunday” from around the world,
plus the Billie Holiday masterpiece and the very Hungarian original for your digitally
remastered listening pleasure.
Go ahead, listen to it if you must. But don’t say you weren’t warned. And should you be
one of the fortunate ones to survive this ordeal, have the decency and good sense not
to recommend it to others. Piranha Records must not be rewarded for their cynicism
and betrayal of the public trust. Above all else, they must be discouraged from releasing
“Gloomy Sunday vol. II”, which our sources say is already in the works.

Jalilahs Raks Sharki – Stage Cuts
Wednesday, July 16th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Jalilahs Raks Sharki – Stage Cuts

Image: 1588824 Piranha Musik present Stage Cuts, the best of the pioneering Jalilah‘s Raks Sharki oriental dance series in 16 stage cuts for a new generation of dancers and performance spaces, selected by Jalilah herself

The best of the pioneering Jalilah‘s Raks Sharki oriental dance series in
16 stage cuts for a new generation of dancers and performance spaces,
selected by Jalilah herself. Traditional songs – edited and remastered – are
presented in 16 crunchy shortened tracks, selected from six previous albums.
A current development shows that Stage Cuts has its finger on the pulse of the
times – the facts speak for themselves: In earlier times the typical length for a
dance performance on festivals was between 10 to 20 minutes – nowadays the
time limit is usually under five minutes.
Taken from Mokhtar Al-Said‘s “El Ferqa Al Mesaya” Orchestra, to Hossam
Shaker and his Ensemble, to the magical melodies and rhythms of Ihsan Al-
Mounizer, this record fulfills the highest artistic demands, mirroring Jalilah’s
attachment to her idols: ”Stage Cuts is a tribute to the great names in Oriental
Dance history – to all these musicians, composers and most of all to the per
formers who love and cherish this beautiful dance form!“, so Jalilah states her
intention for the new release. But also lovers of Oriental Dance music will find
what their hearts desire, bridging tradition and modernity.

KEY SELLING POINTS

* for a new generation of dancers and performance spaces

Boban & Marko Markovic Orchestra – Gipsy Manifesto
Wednesday, November 13th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Boban & Marko Markovic Orchestra – Gipsy Manifesto

Image: 1584429 Growing from balkan to world champions, Boban and Marko release
their Gipsy Manifesto, a musical call for change and a sonic striving
for higher truth, drafted and crafted in the school of life.
Ancient melodies that have worked their way down the silk road to the
beaches of the Adriatic Sea, played on the instruments of 19th-century
Czech Military Bands against the throbbing rhythms that have driven the
wild dances of innumerable generations‘ worth of Roma
celebrations – this is Balkan Brass Band music. The saturation of multicultural
elements that has created this music, though, is far from a completed
process. In the hands of Boban and Marko Markoviæ, the evolution is ongoing.
These musical visionaries, a virtuosic father and his prodigious son, are active
reinterpreters of this hallowed tradition. Their brand of Brass Band music
is contemporary and big-city-ready, while staying well-rooted in the rural
traditions that made it. The aesthetic of the band draws ready comparisons
to horn-drenched funk music, New Orleans brass band ensembles, and
classic Jamaican ska, but the rhythms and the melodies: these are distinctly
Balkan.
“Having dominated the Balkan brass world in the20th century, Boban
and Marko have now chosen to do no less than redefine the genre.
There isn‘t a band on the planet that can touch them.“
Frank London

KEY SELLING POINTS
* first studio album in 4 years after the release of “Devla”
* last year’s best of “Golden Horns” was a !K7 best seller in the US
* generation change – most songs are written by Boban’s son Marko
* very danceable and radio-compatible
* extended orchestration (Bass, Drums, Guitar, Piano, Accordion)

Gerd Janson – Presents Music For Autobahns Sampler
Thursday, October 17th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Gerd Janson – Presents Music For Autobahns Sampler

Image: 1585187 1. Suzanna Kraft – ESL 2. Marcus Worgull & Motor City Drum Ensemble – Onassis 3. Young Marco – In the wind 4. Acoustic High-End Research – Beer And Air 5. Osborne – Oyasumi / More tracks selected by the Running Back head honcho, Gerd Janson, for our continuing Music For Autobahns series. This 12″ includes tracks previously only on the CD release plus some exclusives…varied and roadworthy electronics that can also be used in cycle lanes and footpaths…
We commissioned Gerd Janson for a collection that starts where previous compilations left off. While Computer Incarnations for World Peace (his compilations for Sonar Kollektiv) concentrated on tipsy new wave music done by jazz-funkers or neo disco-ists, Autobahns has an unintentionally strong leaning towards ambient not-ambient, kraut pleasers and codeine house, i.e. Industrial Ambient and Electrifying New Age. It’s all new and exclusive material by people who have crossed paths with the compiler at one time or another.

This sometimes unlikely gathering is hopefully unified by its non-parochial view of dance- and living-room floors, ambient noise and its effectiveness as a soundtrack to long rides up and down the Autobahn.

DJ / Press Quotes
