A dub-step retake on 'War of the Worlds' using the original Richard Burton narration and the voices of Phil Lynott and David Essex and various samples of Jeff Wayne's original here.

 

Worth a go if you like Dub-Step.

selected memories of the bluenote....

 

I'm suspecting that you're referring to the 'bluenote' nightclub in London. I have gratitude to a close friend of mine who introduced me to MoWax through DjShadow and I was lucky enough to be present at Mowax's last ever residency at the Bluenote in Hoxton Square and can honestly say it revitalised my love of 'clubbing', or at least music related clubbing.

 

From:

 

Before this I was mainly following hip hop events and was lucky enough to see the 'Invizibl Skratch Picklz' at a series of gigs I was following called 'Fresh'. Here's an exerpt from that ............

Since we have split the threads - the other you tube thread seems to be re Business items and this = music

 

Is it sensible to re-name this thread entertainment ?

 

And this is not music but is great entertainment

 

Or is it just that the other thread has got loaded with business items temporarily ?

it may get deleted so search for got to dance akai - great talent !

{Tunes}

 

some good tunes there

 

yep - i was there a few times when Goldie / Metalheadz were present. iirc, Goldie used to have something to do with the running of the place? but i have not been there since 1997/8, so i don't know what the set-up is there now.

Cool, thanks. Here's something I was told 18 years ago. First a classic.

 

.../...

 

It was rumoured John Lennon's "Jealous Guy" was written after he lost his cool watching Yoko Ono and David Bowie dance and flirt at a function, it served as his apology to Yoko.

 

When David Bowie out'd himself in 1972, it was rumoured, "John I'm only Dancing..." was about a homosexual liaison, when in contrast to popular belief, it was David Bowie's reply to John Lennon's "Jealous Guy"...

 

 

i wish Yoko would have flirted more if it produced the inspiration for those two songs!

 

thanks for the info

Excellent stuff .............. pure disco isn't something I've greatly collected but it's not through a dislike, more through a lack of source of information on what, or more importantly who to research. Thanks for the link. Personally, the nearest I've explored to disco and one of my favourite all time "dance like no-one's looking" tune is this .......

 

I'm more into early electronic disco and other electronic music from the 70's - another one of my favourites and hard to believe it's from 1977 is Supernature. Produced by French disco master Cerrone with Lene Lovich writting and singing the lyrics.

That tune is nice. One of those that I recognise but wouldn't have previously been able to identify. Thanks for the heads up.

 

This number from Demis Roussos made me raise an eyebrow when I heard it (played slightly pitched up mind) recently ...........

Yes indeed. One of those acts I've missed seeing live. Leftfield are a similar act that deserves a mention ........

Used to hate the Disco stuff when i was a kid because at the time it wasnt cool. Looking back you realise just how good the musicianship was on those records....(Chic being a good example.... Nile rodgers and Bernard Edwards if i remember correctly)

 

Edwards was one of the great bass players of the time and as shaped much of todays dance music

Just as a note, if anyone has a copy of this version of Clubbed to death on vinyl, I'll pay VERY good money. I've never ever seen a copy, let alone know anyone who has a copy. It is my "holy grail"

cheers all and have a nice day.

'oh yeah?' . Nice hook ............. kinda felt myself chanting that to myself today and nodding along with my imgination of the tempo. Nice post.

 

Reminds me somewhat of The Clash which I used to get off to whilst setting fire to things and playing with gunpowder as a mixed up early teenager .......

Though I was young (8 years old) my older best mate played stuff like this to me regularly and I felt exposed to the anger. I remember my parents were so worried my Dad made me take up boxing hoping it would give me some outlet or discipline ................. FAIL ! rofl ! .............. but I guess it at least moulded my view on what the value of 'music' as an art can be and made me steer away from 'pop' culture.

A wonderful performance. May I just add this from Nina Simone ........... always been one of my favourites. :rolleyes:

 

From:

 

Always wanted to see Nina Simone play live but apparently her performances can range from sublimely brilliant to completely lacklustre.

 

I never get tired of this version of 'Apache' ...............

Some more disco along the same vibe as Chic ...........

Tiz my favourite tune by them - this is the period where I started really getting into music as a 9/10 year old and buying records. It's a shame that Jerry Dammers isn't playing with them though as it's him that really made the music and had the vision - just love the way he plays that organ!. Ghost town also really caught the mood of the day like no other song has since....

 

Special AKA probably had one really good song and lots of embarassing ones, especially when Dammers was on vocals!. But although dated now, 1984's 'Nelson Mandela' once again proved what a visionary person he was with a powerful upbeat song that would snowball into something much bigger.

Seeing as it's still (unseasonally?) cold a couple of tunes I save for summer days (damn someone already posted Roy Ayres) .................

Though I aint religious the album 'What's Going On?' (which has some very religious undertones) this was taken from what I rate as THE greatest album I own and paints an incredibly personal picture of early 70's America and it's social problems. Though it paint a bleak picture it somehow also has a great feeling of warmth. I've posted two consecutive tracks from the album as they are almost inseperable ..............
