African Head Charge, voorkant

African Head Charge, achterkant detail

Houd je van lekker vreemd instrumentaal getrommel
en geblieb ? De meester op dit terrein was begin jaren
tachtig zonder twijfel Adrian Sherwood. Hier hebben we
nog zo’n sterk staaltje bizarre geluiden, congas, bongos,
friction drums, fish, cabassa, keukenpannen, basgitaren,
keyboards, chinese luit, elektrische percussie etcetera..

The Mothmen – Pay Attention !
On-U Sound lp2, 1981

the Mothmen, front

Pay Attention !

Quite some time ago, when I still made ‘Ramdog’s Rough Site’,
I posted this album. Thought I already moved it to the GG but I
guess I didn’t. This is the second lp on the great On-U Sound label
and I have always liked it a lot. Typical 80’s UK sound, experimental
stuff, reggae, punk and popmusic merged into this brandnew sound..

tracks;

1 Afghan farmer driving cattle/Animal animaux
2 Not moving
3 Factory/Teapoint/Factory
4 Please let go
5 Tardis
6 Mothman

Ruts DC – Rhythm Collision, Bohemian Records 1982

To have us a little variety, I thought some dub wouldn’t
hurt. Early 80’s, when we were listening to loads of reggae,
this LP came out and dublovers as we were, it scored enormously.
I am still thrilled to hear it after all those years.
Engineered by Mad Professor, Dub along groovers.

tracks;

1 Whatever we do
2 Militant
3 Push yourself-Make it work
4 Rhythm collision
5 Accusation
6 Pleasures of the dance
7 Weak heart dub
8 Love and fire
