It's not David Bowie ... It's not The Clash .... It's ........

.... a bit of fun! But I am really hoping that the following track leads me to another track I have been looking for - something very similar to this ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWvfV-sfJ-E

There are others ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJB_74Xl9aw

But that will do for now.

It was actually this track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVjwkOBUV-w which I just heard on Petofi Radio 92.7 while checking some old Es files from last August, and it reminded me of the track I heard on WDR4 one day - a Schlager rendition of Pharrell's Happy. I was transfixed when I heard it and I have been looking for a copy of it every since.

As far as I can remember, the Happy track did not have vocals. It was just an instrumental version, sounding very similar to the Russkaja version of Wake Me Up. It was the Brighouse & Rastrick Brass Band all over again! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQNFxzt ... QNFxztGMjA

I usually tire very quickly of novelty songs, but I'd love to discover who the artist is who did the Schlager version of Happy.

In the meantime, I hope the Russkaja songs some caused mirth and merriment.

very nice ;-)

my latest purchase is the Ministry 7cd +1LP box set
its basically everything from 1980-1990 before Al Jourgensen became a parody of himself

it came out 2014 but I've had such a bad experience of box sets I really investigated this one before purchase, its brilliant!

I know John knows this one:
I wanted to tell her

Interesting track. Thanks for this. It would be burnt out tweeters here if I ever played that at high volume. I'm hearing Blue Feather (Killing Joke, folks) in this. Not at all surprising that you like this ... and I played it all the way through!

I have the 12" vinyl of I Wanted To Tell Her and still prefer the dub version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8koXpUWNQyA - starts at 7 minutes.

And I have Crash FM, Liverpool, to thank for introducing me to the delights of this band. I used to listen to them from home in Nottinghamshire, even though the signal was painfully weak. I strained my ears into the noise, the music was THAT good, in my humble opinion. Maybe the FM noise levels added to the interest.

I also have Crash FM to thank for introducing me to this ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hF44Bs2-b5Q. Yes, I bought the 12" of this too.

I can't get excited about much new apart from the weird folk fusions on Belarusian Radio Racyja

I finally bought something by "people with chairs up their noses" - john alerted me to their existence :-)

People With Chairs Up Their Noses?! That sounds like the title of a Monty Python sketch! :lol:
Good DX.

I'm currently obsessed with electric period miles Davis, totally see why John lydon, jah wobble, cabaret Voltaire, brian eno etc cite him and/or producer teo macero as influence.

I'm really digging:
Jack Johnson
Live evil
On the corner
Big fun
Get up with it
Agharta
Pangea

Ordered dark magus and in concert

Very interesting. I am glad you revived this thread. I was looking for it the other day and couldn't remember what it was called.

Will post something myself soon. Will check out John Miles too. Any suggestions? (Thinking about Wobble, Lydon and Voltaire.)

I was dying to suggest "Go ahead john" but Its a bit too rock for you

For the cabaret Voltaire influence I would say:
On the corner and black satin , the first 2 tracks from on the corner. Lots of ahead of its time production with loops etc
For some proto-jungle I recommend "rated x" from get up with it - that was the track that initially hooked me

I think ian Kelly may like on the corner due to its funkiness
I find it hard to believe this music was made by a jazz trumpeter born in 1926, my mind is blown
Enjoy :-)

I'm guessing Can were big Miles Davis fans. 'Rated X' has a similar feel. I think I may have to investigate further.

Here's a Terry Riley composition I heard recently on WFMU. It's his 'reworking' of a late 1967 RnB track by the Harvey Averne Dozen, 'You're No Good':

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75QFsgDMHDM

All he used were two reel-to-reel tape recorders and a Moog synth AFAIK. Could this be the first remix as we know them? This gets seriously tripped out as it progresses. Pretty out there for late 1967!
Good DX.

Absolutely Nick, Can must have heard this.

Thanks for the link, I have poppy nogood/all night flight by Riley on David toop's ocean of sound compilation. This seems to be the track that "inspired" Pete Townsend's synth dabbling on baba o riley

Has anyone on here heard of the internet radio station Cybernetic Broadcasting System? It's known as the CBS for short, is part of the legendary Intergalactic FM family (run by I-F aka Ferenc E. van der Sluijs), and has been on & off over the years in various forms, known for playing electro, Italo disco and some acid house. Well, since the New Year it has returned, and it's much more eclectic. If you are into electronic music I cannot recommend it highly enough, although it's not exclusively electronic now. I have heard electro, techno, house, disco, hip hop, jazz, soft rock, Latin, world music, easy listening, Italo-disco (still quite a lot of this played), Hi-NRG, soul, funk, soundtracks, synth pop, post-punk/new wave, EBM, industrial, experimental, ambient and psychedelia on there. A fascinating listen!

Website is here (under 'RADIO' at top left select 'CYBERNETIC BROADCASTING SYSTEM'):

https://www.intergalactic.fm/

There's useful information about the current track playing, usually including the record label, catalogue number, year of release and country.
Good DX.
