I know for sure there is a DJ team by the name of Laurel & Hardy who published a record called "What a bargain"...I believe they come from Great Britain...compare them to Michigan and Smiley or Eastwood and Saint...

Ghastly 1980's UK Dj duo. Sort-of like Saint & Eastwood but not so inspired. I can't give away their records!

I think I still have a Laurel & Hardy 12'' somewhere.
Anybody who wants it can have it.

Grim coincidence and a bit off topic but look what happened on this day 40 years ago:
1965 Stan Laurel comedian (Laurel & Hardy), dies in California of heart attack at 74

A fast style Uk deejay duo, like Papa Levi or Asher Senator, largely overlooked in my opinion.
I have the album and the rest.
It appears on ebay every now and then and goes for a couple of pounds.
Would be pleased to make a cdr if you want to

You're Nicked was one of the hits. They even appeared on the Tube I believe. Smiley Culture gave them a slap-down on one of his records.

The only hit - comparatevely speaking - which also features on Great British MC's on Fashion Label.
But the album is on Upright, whose only other reggae release was Benjamin Zephaniah.

That's probably 'Intergalactic Rockers', a one-sided 7" white label. I think it's the only L&H tune currently on sale new. Not too keen on it myself - the rhythm's OK but I could never stand that Vocoder sound (or whatever it is they use to distort voices).

maaan that is a VERY VERY Spooky Coincidence,and i truely had No idea..WOW man thats kinda cool tho.and not off topic at all actually..lol laurel and hardy ;)..dang i had been looking for laurel and hardy samples to use on a tune of mine,and why on that day i will never have a clue ;)

Hmmm maybe some very strange channleing happened

@ everyone else: thank you for your responses,I think i will steer clear from What a Bargain,since i now know it is the name of a L&H record
and yess i would still like to hear some tho

@Dubac: Yess that was the one ,the beginning with the voice WAS a bit annoying.

Ranking Tim Wells, formerly of this parish, has republished a Laurel and Hardy interview by Garry Bushel from Sounds in 1982.

Worth checking the rest of the blog for writing on ranting poetry and more.

Slightly before the fast style IIRC but agree they weren't that bad. Not much evidence of them on the Intergalactic Rockers thing?
