  • bob daktari,

    I watch a lot of old skool rave/breakbeat music videos... the comments from those who were there are most enjoyable

    From the forthcoming album 'Funkadelic - Reworked by Detroiters'.

    A diverse selection of remixers from today’s generation of Detroit producers and musicians, looking back at the immense legacy of Funkadelic and re-imagining it for now, With the re-interpreters chosen to prismatically represent the vastness of Funkadelic’s genre-bending music.

    That Kate Bush documentary was magic. I've never had goose bumps like that before in my life. Really good.

    The great Nick Cave is 60 today, too. God, at one point it looked like he'd struggle to make it to 30.

    looking through sites about archiving music recently I stumbled across Les Amazones de Guinée - a new fave...
    ...puts me in mind of Go-go.

  • Jason Kemp,

    I watched that Kate Bush doc a while back. Magic stuff. I have some of her directors cut versions from more recent times. She can't hit the high notes but still great.

    Wanted to show the teenager what an '80's teen wunderkind could do. In my mind Kate is very much the template for Lorde. Can't really compare pre-internet with now but the radio mics were also part of Bush's innovation. The approach worked and still does.

    She was a pioneer of the Fairlight and the whole home studio thing when it cost a lot more.

    'Funkadelic - Reworked by Detroiters'

    Wow thanks, I love that song, what a gorgeous treatment. It's a long-time favourite off the 1995 Funkronimicon reworking. Seems that this stuff gets a major rebore every 2 decades or thereabouts.

    Ian Dalziel:

    Les Amazones de Guinée.

    They are so cool, thanks for the heads up. A brief poke around YouTube shows that they also look spectacular in civvies.

  • Hugh Wilson,

    Saddened to hear of Charles Bradley's passing. A mini tribute of sorts below, noting the many hardships he faced and great happiness he had in performing for, and connecting with, others.
