"Cosmic Rapp" sounds very similar to the vocoder parts in Manificent Trio ‎– Trio's Confession

The version with combat never existed - it was fabricated back in the the early 2000's by someone in the US who photo-shopped some scans and then spread a rumour about it which unfortunately was published in a book (I know as remember providing the... See full review

This track and their other track (Johnny Too Bad) both use the same backing track with just different vocal arrangements and raps. It was either a remix or another attempt at trying to improve on the other track. No doubt a low budget release.

Looking at the cat no. of this test press - this was actually pressed up by Warlock Classics in the late 90's - the last cat in that sequence was WR-817 - all I can assume is that this press was shelved and never got a full release at the time. I... See full review

Slept on golden era hip hop - esp. like the track "Turn up the Music" - with it subtle use of Funkadelic's "One Nation Under a Groove".

B Side wins again! - a nice vocoder based tune "Hypnoteque" - not that well known outside of Australia but worth picking up for this tune - and quite common also!
posted a comment on Jeff Jay Dog Scott* - Snake Bite / Burst Out. over 9 years ago
"Burst Out" is the tune on this one - an interesting synth excursion with lofi production - unusual tune but am a big fan of it - on hindsight they should have put it on the A side - with an instrumental on the flip..
posted a review of Bo Galigher / T.S.B. Inc. - Oh Baby! / Get On Down. over 9 years ago
The track "Get On Down" is a nice bit of electro funk with vocoders where as "Oh! Baby" is a nice slice of Alabama funk!
posted a comment on Johnny Robinson (3) - Your The One For Me / Nuclear Raid. over 9 years ago
The track for me on this is "Nuclear Raid" - I had it on a mix CD many years ago - but could never find anything about the artist and was unsure if the track actually existed. I lost the CD a few years back but this was one of my favourites from it.

An interesting mix of hip hop, soul and go-go, been a big fan of this record for many years. Seems a one-off from Solid Truth released independently back in 1985. I find it kind of a parody that the label was called "puerile productions" (childish ,... See full review

The stand out tune on this 12" is the Johnny Shaka tune "Shake your Pants" a nice piece of electro funk with vocoders, which makes it quite sort after. This record had a run of 5000 units and made the top 40 in Canada when it was released.
