Hard News: Friday Music: With Pictures
I watch a lot of old skool rave/breakbeat music videos... the comments from those who were there are most enjoyable
From the forthcoming album 'Funkadelic - Reworked by Detroiters'.
A diverse selection of remixers from today’s generation of Detroit producers and musicians, looking back at the immense legacy of Funkadelic and re-imagining it for now, With the re-interpreters chosen to prismatically represent the vastness of Funkadelic’s genre-bending music.
Oh! Cheers for that Kate Bush doco. Needed that.
That Kate Bush documentary was magic. I've never had goose bumps like that before in my life. Really good.
The great Nick Cave is 60 today, too. God, at one point it looked like he'd struggle to make it to 30.
Thanks for posting the Chills doco preview Russ, looking forward to catching up with Marty in Dunedin next week
looking through sites about archiving music recently I stumbled across Les Amazones de Guinée - a new fave...
...puts me in mind of Go-go.
I watched that Kate Bush doc a while back. Magic stuff. I have some of her directors cut versions from more recent times. She can't hit the high notes but still great.
Wanted to show the teenager what an '80's teen wunderkind could do. In my mind Kate is very much the template for Lorde. Can't really compare pre-internet with now but the radio mics were also part of Bush's innovation. The approach worked and still does.
She was a pioneer of the Fairlight and the whole home studio thing when it cost a lot more.
'Funkadelic - Reworked by Detroiters'
Wow thanks, I love that song, what a gorgeous treatment. It's a long-time favourite off the 1995 Funkronimicon reworking. Seems that this stuff gets a major rebore every 2 decades or thereabouts.
Les Amazones de Guinée.
They are so cool, thanks for the heads up. A brief poke around YouTube shows that they also look spectacular in civvies.
Such a great selection Russell, sitting here in London and listening to The Chills ... Brent H.

Excellent. Lovely to hear from you!

Saddened to hear of Charles Bradley's passing. A mini tribute of sorts below, noting the many hardships he faced and great happiness he had in performing for, and connecting with, others.
