Easily my favorite Kid Creole track. Funky, fun, and witty. This is a classic by the same great musician's that penned Dr. Buzzard's Cher Chez la Femme and it is the dope arrangement that makes this track jump. Still in the box some nearly 40 years ... See full review

Met Moby once and it was very telling. He played at a rescue farm for animals in upstate New York (shocker, I know). He played most of the hits as acoustic guitar versions by himself. After the gig, which was OK, I went with a friend backstage to meet ... See full review

How in gods name has this never been repressed? An absolute gem of a track that drifts along and builds to near crescendo after near crescendo only to slip back down deep again. Dreamy and sublime with flutes, floaty key pads and the 'Close Your Eyes' ... See full review

If you have a scanner..you can scan the record and then follow the submissions guidelines for submitting a release. I would be glad to walk you through this process.
posted a comment on Saint Etienne - Home Counties. about 1 year ago
Saint Etienne continue to thrill. Nine albums in and still plenty of ideas and a balance between the shimmery pop brilliance of 'Dive' or 'Out Of My Mind' to the darkly creeping 'Sweet Arcadia'. Lucky enough I was to see them on this tour, and with a ... See full review

What an edit! This improves upon the original and is groovy as heck. Would love a repress but this label seems long gone....
posted a comment on Tornado Wallace - Lonely Planet . about 1 year ago
Top shelf this one. Dreamy 80z synthery and it does have a Kate Bush feel to it. The guitar work reminds me of the Fixx and overall it is like the long-lost soundtrack to Pilotwings. Drifting, melodic, smooth and summery.

Absolute banger that is dying for a reissue. Picked this up for a buck and it maybe the best 1$ I've ever spent on a house record. For me its all about the Hyp mix with its DJ Pierre-ish Wild Pitch punch. Scorching!

Very fine comp from Jus'trax that still does the business right all these years later and has a few lost gems (namely...7th Movement's - Odyssey and Swag's - Version 1 and 9) Not a slacker track on here but for the opener which never did it for me...

The track 'Holiday' is for all intents and purposes a cover of Change's - Lover's Holiday as the melody is lifted straight from the aforementioned track albeit in the Monday's style.

Loving this right now...dreamy house and beatdown for the seasoned ear, lots happening low in the mix. The track Night Fever grabbed me right away with its tribal drums and minimal house feel. Very nice work!

Tragically underrated gem. Sounds like virtually nothing else and lights the brain on fire with drifting sonic explorations of the downtempo and chill. Has an analogue feel and drifts but never off target. Clearly crafted and labored over but not ... See full review
