A Dark Soul

We all know about the checkered past of Ike Turner, but if you are not up to speed with his early music with The Kings of Rhythym. Check out the 1969 release "A Black Man's Soul". I can't believe it took me so long to check out this man's music.

Like a Tiger

The Lady Tigre's debut album "Please Mr. Boombox", is probably not an album i would have downloaded if i listnened to a couple of quick sample grabs before buying. But having downloaded on a whim without knowing much about it, i was suprised by how much it grabbed me with it's fantastic bass heavy production and catchy hooks. Here is a couple of cuts.

The Show Is Over!

A big thanks for those of you who have visited this blog on a regular basis and enjoyed the tunes, but being a father of three kids under four is taking it's toll on me from a time consumption perspective. So rather than contribute half assed posts, i will end it here. Peace.

Fight The Power

As world leaders converge on Sydney's doorstep for the APEC summit, and decide best how to completely fuck up this earth a little a less, without infringing on their own trade and wealth, i thought i would visit a few protest songs from the past and present. Sydney itself has been essentially shut down to accommodate the likes of George W. Here's hoping the protesters can cause some quality civil unrest.
I am excluding the Public Enemy referenced title, as i had that CD pinched off me quite some years ago now.

War - Edwin Starr(King Britt Remix)

The Before Party

This Saturday night at 8 Track, Sunset Sounds is having it's monthly party there in St.Kilda, and yours truly has been added to the bill for a rare sighting behind the decks. I'll be joining Cooper and Square Cut, so get down for a few warm up drinks and some quality tunes, where i will be playing a little bit of everything that i may have posted here, or picked up on some of the other fine blogs in my links. Here are some of new tracks i might give a spin.
On The Bus - All Good Funk Alliance feat. Swamburger&Alexandrah
