I recently met a very nice man who gave me a very nice deal on some crates of records, a lot of it was messed up but there were a few gems in there that have me excited. Example One: Club Nouveau. You know this band? From Sactown, they formed after the excellent Timex Social Club folded and have some serious jams. “Why You Treat Me So Bad” was sampled by both The Luniz for “I Got Five On It” AND Puff Daddy on “Satisfy You.” Check:
Respectify (Jonny One-Time really gave that exclamation some ground here in the Bay) local band of 80’s awesomeness!
Speaking of samples, another good jam I acquired recently (thank you, Andy) is MC Lyte’s “Keep On, Keepin’ On.” WHICH samples a little song called “Liberian Girl,” a jam by Mr. Michael Jackson that my sister and I LOVED when we found it.I have a distinct memory of playing it on repeat laughing and laughing and imitating the opening sequence. A odd song that may only be trumped by the amazing video that accompanies it. George Jefferson? Theo? Bridget Nielsen? Paula Abdul? a be-mulleted John Travolta? DON KING?? Priceless, and an odd list too long to transcribe for you. Here, just see for yourself:
and here’s MC Lyte’s take (the clean one, but watch yr ears when I drop the drrty one in da club):
ok ok for reals now I’m off the blog and into the world. Happy FRIDATE, y’all!
