Shoo-Bop Shoo-Bop


Just the facts, ma'am.

Dayton were from Dayton (Ohio) and like these previously featured Friday nite artistes were a 'proper' funk band before they 'went (electro) disco'. I was reminded of how terrific this track was all of your eight earth years ago when it popped up in the middle of this mix album (which is quite marvellous in its own right, by the way).

This is, as you have surely come to expect from here by now dear hearts, the full length (8:12) 12" version, and not a nun or lonely goat-herd in sight.

Vocoders at the ready? Silver flecked black acrylic crew neck and 'generous' trousers on?

Splendid, then let us begin.

Dayton - 'The Sound Of Music' (1983)

  1. First heard this via a Groove Armada comp - what a treat, and hearing out of context (dropped somewhere in the middle of electro squeaks and bleeps), made it sound even better. D Train 'You're The One For Me' has to got to be odds on for a future Friday night spin-up at some point surely..

    If you're tempted, I made a couple of comps which mixes Rockers Revenge (Walking In Sunshine) into Freeze (I.O.U) and another which mixes Primal Scream (Rocks) into Hamilton Bohannon (Let's Start The Dance) - can mail on if you fancy an earful..

  2. Groove Armada - er, yeah Mond, DASS WOT I SAID MAN. D Train - you're right, very much in that zone - have actually made an appearance here before (long time ago in blog years).

    Anything funky electro mixed you think I should have, always a pleasure dear boy.

    Word verif = FUSIT. Ain't that the truth.
