You got it right, my dear Gordon. It was a blast!
We did discuss some serious matters, after all there is a real life out there.
But the rest of the evening was pure fun, we did listen to some of my strangest records:
- like Johnny Cash singing a german version of "I walk the line"
- the most out of tune song that was ever recorded: "Philosophy Of The World" / The Shaggs
- And a band from Indonesia called "Javalins" who rocked Germany in the early 60's, doing a Jam session with Paul Kuhn "Es gibt kein Bier auf Hawaii"
:D 8) :lol:

Hey Jack J, that Dynamic 4 tune is a killer, what vintage is it do you think? Great list as usual.

Hello Brendan. That one is 1972 believe it or not! studio always ahead of their time!! Faze four was used to put out alot of VERY early roots. Never heard of the group before or after...possibly because of the lead singers lisp!! which only adds to the tune imho! anyone know another dynamic four tune? as for Si's one head dubplate.....I needed picking up off the floor after that one! that man is detrimantal!!

Funny that, never noticed the singer's lisp as the copy i have is scratchy as anything. Like to hear that One Head..one of twinkle's best but the 7" isn't as weighty as what I remember from various dances. Does Simon R run a sound down your way?

London Is The Place For Me

Postby Ekki » Wed Jan 19, 2005 8:25 pm

Gordon - I really try to make it to "Mash It Up".
I got holidays in the first week of April, so there is a good possibility to finally meet you. I only have to explain the Missus, that a return match with the Pilot is an urgent thing :wink:
And Grumpy - we did listen to the german version of "How sweet it is".
Marvin Gaye fighting with the "Umlaut" in "Wie schön das ist".

Yes Brendan, Simon is well known on the London record - hunting circuit, and used to run a sound called Reality with his brothers Tim and Finbar. They now live in Norwich (2 with their young families) and Si travels between London and Norwich. They are a heavy sound up there now named Rebel Lion. Wicked selection with the capacity to blow any of us away with musical surprises believe me! I once spent a whole night with Si (some years ago when i was not such a sick anorak!) in his house with him running non stop dubplate from 10pm to 6am!!! and this man is only 30! :

Si blows me away inna REBEL LION dubplate style 10

1. Mash down babylon - Jackie Mittoo
2. Never get burn - Twinkle Bros
3. Guided missile - Wailers
4. Leggo jah jah children - Barry Brown
5. Jah Dreadful - Twinkle Bros / Sticky Dread
6. Guide us Jah - Johnnie Clarke
7. Gimme gimme - Errol Holt / Cry tuff all star
8. Natural Mystic - Perry / Wailers (ARGH sick!)
9. Unknown DJ to "You can run" - Hurricanes (not Dillinger)
10. Sinners Repent - Johnnie Clarke / Tubby

I feel like i've met you brendan (ie think i have) but can't place where. What do you think? stokey? hackney??? respects....

Hey jack, don't think we've met ( I'm down inna dublin), spent a little time back in the early 90s in south london, earning a crust and going to dances. will make a solution sound night sometime. in the meantime keep up the top tens they provide a good standard for judging tunes.

nice 1 brendan, glad someone likes 'em...sometimes feels a bit futile posting lists, but i can't usually think of anything else much to say (unless someone mentions america and war of course :roll: just can't help myself) Just for that, I'm gonna post another list now inna Dublin style: I've been there and stayed in County Meathe for 2 months (years ago).. wicked vibes out there, so i'm going to match some tunes to it. Pointless but that's me all over :P
