Any chance of a vinyl reissue of this incredible compilation?


June 20, 2009

This crackly, vinyl lifted rare release from Chicago label Memphix is a break digger's dream come true... Dante Carfagna has spared you hours of looking and listening through crumbly old vinyl and presents you with a stylised collection of obscure joints from what sounds like the 60's and 70's. "Stylised" in this case meaning the title tells all - Hell's Angel/bikers funk(-adelic) with a distinct garage flavour; acid-rock fuzzed up guitar and bass; adrenaline (amphetamine?) fuelled R'n'B with a large dose of blaxploitation for good measure! There are some real beauties on here, for listening or sampling... take ya choice. Puts me in mind of other biker themed releases such as 'Angel Dust - Music For Movie Bikers', presented by Savage Pencil.

The cd's presentation has no info as to tracks/artists whatsoever apart from some partly obscured photographs of 7" labels, and the Iron Knowledge 'Showstopper' centre label in full view - lucky we have Discogs/internet to inform us otherwise you could possibly spend a whole lifetime digging just for the track listing!

Expect to pay good money for the original which contains the previously mentioned Iron Knowledge track which has a badass break nestling in it's almost heavy metal heart. Like Parliament/Funkadelic? This s**t is definitely for you!
