I've been saving this up. It has one of those big, bouncy, booming basslines that when taken at top volume thumps right through your chest to your shaking disco booty behind, so it'll help us generate some heat on a parky night, right? Some bloke goes batty with a saxophone on it too! Sheesh, if I was a smart chap like Mondo I'd mix his long saxy note at 4:42 with the long saxy note that opens Tom Browne's 'Funkin' For Jamaica' and you would Fall At My Feet And Worship Me As A (DJ) God.
Meanwhile...I'm not that keen on champagne, are you? Bit dryyyyyy. I sometimes like to sluice a tad into the top of my Guinness of a New Year's Eve, but that's about it. Mrs H is fond, but then she's a classy bird.
Man, I love Friday nights. Proscht!

I got one for ya'...close to 5 my time...ReplyDelete
Oooh, you tease!ReplyDelete
Don't mind champagne but not a lot of people serve you it by the pint.ReplyDelete
As for the song, much like Mrs H, sheer class.
Friday nights are made for good music and a little alcohol to unwind with.
Funkin' For Jamaica? Saxy note?ReplyDelete
Trumpet, Davy, surely - or is my memory playing tricks on me?
P Dubya, I think you may be right! Darn ya!ReplyDelete
Same pitch though - definitely mixable...
I too always thought that Champers was overated, fizzy, dry, headache material ... then, this year, I tried a 'decent' bottle. (£85 a pop). I instantly changed my mind and, if I had the money, I would drink nothing else ......ReplyDelete
with my fish n chips, of course.
Eighty. Five. Quid.
I remember Julie Burchill reviewing another Evelyn King single in the NME saying she could only have topped 'Shame' by dying in a car crash right after it was released.ReplyDelete
Tchh! 'Journalists' !ReplyDelete
Well I couldn't get Shame and Funkin' to mix (BPM's were to far apart) and the saxes are different pitches but I managed to work both tracks into a little something soul boyish - here you go Davey H MinimixReplyDelete
SENSATIONAL! Did you do that tonight?ReplyDelete
'In The Groove' to 'Shame' I did tonight - the Crown Heights to Rockers Revenge - was something from a couple of years ago as the was the Starsky/Kitty Grant - but managed to knit them all together this evening - I'll mail you the first thing I ever did If I can find it which I think runs - Primal Scream/Hamilton Bohannon/Ronnie Griffiths and a couple of others bitsReplyDelete
Oh and I'm a terror for bubbly - love it and it's bubbly buzz..
'In The Groove' to 'Shame' was my favourite bit - clearly you are getting better with age. Bubbly buzz!ReplyDelete
Bless you - just had a listen (on headphones)and there's a couple of lumpy levels that could do with a tweak - a handful of tracks came from this - if you haven't got it alreadyReplyDelete
Will blast this out tonight when the wife is watching the pish factor, takes me back to the sort of stuff you would hear in the modern room at the Togetherness weekenders.
There's some more of my home-made mixes right here Drew, if you fancy lending an ear - all sorts mod, acid jazz, freakbeat and funkReplyDelete
Yum! Haven't heard this in forever, thanks!ReplyDelete
Oh yes! And I had this on the shortlist for a forthcoming "tapping my feet". Better put it to the bottom of the pile now (after playing it a few more times).ReplyDelete
And I won't raise a glass of champagne with you as I don't like it either.
welcome back ... he said presumptiously - late on Fri night with a smile.ReplyDelete
dirty washing, big hugs, laden down with choccy and swiss stocking fillers.
Take your coat off if you're stopping.
Ah Dickie, Dickie, Dickie, bless you - that popped into my phone about 2 mins after I'd walked in the door, and was lovely.ReplyDelete
Tragically I left the chocs I bought for Mrs H and the Kinder in the 'overhead compartment' on the plane. 20 bloody Swiss Francs they cost me an all! Bah!
Boy is it good to be home.
Hope you've all been keeping well...?
Word verif = squepsy - which I am after a pizza and some wine and no sleep since 6am... x
Do we get a Saturday Soul Gem, then?ReplyDelete
What a splendid idea...ReplyDelete
Welcome back, we need some quality tunes as an alternative to the pish factor final.ReplyDelete
Hope you didn't leave any duty free along with the choccies.
Fortunately, no. But a big bag of mini Toblerones for Les Girls and some pralines for Mrs H is not a loss to be sniffed at round here I can tell you.ReplyDelete
PS: Jon, I lied - no disco tune proved to be forthcoming...you have to go with what you have to go with, don't you find? And it's Bon. And it's bon.ReplyDelete
...as in Jovi?ReplyDelete
...as in Scott?
...as in temps rouler?
...temps rouler...! That made I larf.ReplyDelete
