October 4, 1980: David Matthews & The Electric Birds, Peaches & Herb, Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, Deodato, Tom Browne

ODDS ‘N’ BODS

CAISTER WILL not now be filmed but the following Friday (17) at Southgate Royalty a “Back from Caister” party will be, for showing by LWT on January 4th . . . ‘Urban Cowboy’s’ bucking bull will be at Caister, for which last minute cancellations mean that about 50 tickets are still available – quick! . . . Kool & The Gang ‘Celebration LP & 12in (with Coffee backing) are due here next week, as are Roy Ayers’ LP & 12in . . . Frankie Smith ‘Double Dutch’ will be on UK 12ín in a fortnight with instrumental flip . . . BT Express’s imminent LP features remixes of their early hits plus four newies . . . Morgan Khan and City Sounds will have a few promo only 4-track 12in remixes of Judy Roberts ‘Never Was Love’ / ‘Fantasy’ / ‘The Other World’ / ‘Last Tango In Paris’ . . . Sadao Watanabe ‘Nice Shot’ LP and Terumasa Hino will be on cheaper Inner City US label via City Sounds soon . . . Ronnie Scott ‘Roller-Coaster’ LP doing jazz versions of Stevie Wonder hits will be on Pye, in case you were looking . . . GQ ‘Disco Nights’ remix will be on an Arista 4-track 12in soon . . . Pointer Sisters ‘Save This Night For Love’ will be on UK 12in, as will Zapp and Ernie Watts, while Minnie Riperton gets a 3-tracker with ‘Island In The Sun’ / ‘Light My Fire’ / ‘Lover And Friend’ . . . Roger Squire’s shops are doing Christmas party packs full of silly novelties and complete Santa Claus outfits (minus the sack though!), both at £9.99 . . . David See’s ‘How To Be A Disc Jockey‘ (Hamlyn, £2.99) is priced, designed and packaged in glossy hardback for the Christmas present market (“ooh, that’ll do for little Johnny”), and although containing straightforward information seems like so many publications aimed at down-market DJs, while at the same time encouraging them to invest in the expensive ‘Disco Beats’ US BPM directory instead of recommending the more relevant and cheaper Record Mirror . . . I had a great gig in Norfolk on Saturday (one of my upper class weddings where DJ talk is taboo), mixing until 6:30 in the morning everything from heavy rock to polkas and thunderstorm sound effects, didn’t play a single jazz-funk record and probably made more than any other DJ that night apart from Chris Hill! . . . East Anglian DJ Assn has a marathon 25 hour disco with 24 member mobiles playing in rotation at Peterborough Wirrina from 9pm Friday (3) to 10pm Saturday, in aid of Cambridge Hospital’s cancer scanner . . . Funktion makes it ‘Pink Monday’ at the Embassy when the moveable jazz-funk club opens there with a wear-something-pink party this Monday (6), another possible future venue now being Stringfellows, while Alex Anders had settled in at Penthouse on Fridays and Tony Jenkins does Bennett on Sundays . . . Mayfair Gullivers has had mirror mosaic put on all the walls but nobody noticed for a good two hours! . . . Steve Walsh of eyeliner fame has had a perm . . . Mark Clark now has a ‘Black Trax’ soul show Saturdays 6-7 pm on Radio 210 Thames Valley, carrying the soul/jazz theme into the 9pm – 1am late show too, and recommends a listen to AFN (870Khz) between 1 – 3am week nights for funk . . . Richard Witcombe (Shepton Mallet YC) adds that ‘Spiderman’ by Peter Griffin (his spelling) was on French Discodisc and popular in the spring, the German label quoted last week being of course EMI . . . Liz Bailey of 17 Redhouse Road, Glen Parva, Leicester, needs another copy of her closedown theme, St Andrews Chorale ‘Cloud 99’ (Decca) . . . Trevor Fung, jazzing Covent Garden Rumours wine bar every Saturday, has a Benny Golsen ‘Killer Joe’ 7in for the highest bidder on 01-640 6968 . . . Chris Klopper (Tunbridge Wells) sez Charing Cross Road’s Surplus Records is selling Ramsey Lewis cut-outs at 50p . . . Froggy, following some 12in-knocking comments by Dougall DJ, worriedly wonders how much the 12in and LP mean to other DJs – quite a lot I should think Frog, considering nothing ever really moves until a long version comes out . . . ‘Shame & Scandal’: all those Pye remixes like El Coco, BT Express, Cameo, turn out to have been done in London by Morgan Khan with overdub assistance from Alan ‘Windsurfer’ Jewel! . . . Chris Palmer has been asked if he’d produce Morrissey / Mullen . . . Young of Young & Co ain’t young Jeff, it’s Young of Young Holt! . . . Scott Austin, of Hospital Radio Stonehouse / Radio Law, when at Bellshill YMCA near Glasgow gets the kids writing Steve Ovett-style with their fingers in the air, the title line of Ottawan ‘D.I.S.C.O’ . . . Paul Stewart (Belfast Glenmachen) pulls punters on the strength of the music as nowhere else in Northern Ireland is jazz-funk exposed . . . Steve Allen says Peterborough has been into S.O.U.P. for years as the soul scene there has always been underground (if not literally) in small venues . . . Covent Garden’s ever-busier Rock Garden last weekend saw apres-gig gorgers Tom Holland, Jeanneane Cesvette, Tony Jenkins, Dean Hume, Mark Woods, Alan Jewel, Morgan Khan, myself and a crowd from Hell . . . Miss Bluenote’s new reggae biggie is Delroy Wilson ‘What’s Going On‘ (J&L 12in) . . . George Benson at number one still drops jocks but nothing yet overtakes it – boring! . . . Scottish jocks significantly support Queen, Shalamar, Gladys Knight, Dynasty, Ottawan, Nick Straker, Taste Of Honey, Diana Ross ‘I’m Coming Out’ and – er – Kelly Marie . . . KEEP IT GOOD!


BARBARA THOMPSON, long known as a home-grown jazz and jazz-rock-fusion saxist, is now getting jazz-funk acceptance for her 12in of ‘Sunset’ on MCA. Honking on soprano, tenor and baritone sax, she also studied clarinet, flute, piano and composition at the Royal College of Music before joining in 1965 Neil Ardley’s New Jazz Orchestra, whose drummer Jon Hiseman she subsequently married and played with in Colosseum and Paraphernalia, a series of small groups she’s led since 1973. No doubt she’d be more famous by now had she been a singer!


IMPORTS

DAVID MATTHEWS & THE ELECTRIC BIRDS: ‘Cosmic City’ LP (Japanese Electric Bird SKS 8016).
Dynamite steadily smacking haunting ‘Rise’ – type (but jauntier) 105bpm jazz instrumental title-track jogger with great David Sanborn sax and Mike Manieri vibes cooking up a groove reminiscent in Chris Hill’s mind of Maceo Parker’s ‘Soul Power 74’, worth however many yen it’ll cost ya!

PEACHES & HERB: ‘Funtime’ (LP ‘Worth The Wait’ US Polydor PD-1-5298).
Quite good densely textured romping solid 120bpm smacker on a well produced if not terribly funky disco set. ‘All-Night Celebration‘ being an equally steady smacking little perky 111bpm swayer, ‘Lovey-Dovey (Girl & Guy)‘ a more stolid sparse jolting 111bpm smacker, ‘Hearsay‘ a fast 124bpm bounder with dated Philly feel, and ‘The Love Stealers‘ a building strange 124bpm almost ‘Searching’-like production number.

EVELYN ‘CHAMPAGNE’ KING: ‘Let’s Get Funky Tonight’ (US RCA PD-12090).
Happily romping zippy little 120 – 123 (break) – 120 – 123 (outro) bpm pop-orientated zinger now on longer 12in with useful long break. 

LIPPS INC: ‘Tight Pair’ (LP ‘Pucker Up’ US Casablanca ‘NBLP 7242).
Yowling rock guitar-backed 126bpm squawker suddenly switches halfway into a surprisingly good instrumental groove with twittering synth, much stronger than the single (and promo 12in)-issued emptily smacking 120bpm discofication of Ace’s old ‘How Long‘, which lacks ‘Funkytown’s’ banal catchiness.

JACKSONS: ‘Lovely One’ (US Epic 9-50938).
Jittery rushing 122bpm 7in smacker in ‘Shake Your Body’ style without being as strong a song, and likely to be replaced on single in the UK by a Village People – type alternative song.

CHARLES VEAL: If You Ever Need Somebody’ (LP ‘Only The Best’ US Capitol ST-12095).
Out a while and generally ignored, this female-sounding tensely pent-up jittery little 108 – 109bpm jolter actually goes well with Teena Marie and could work with Gladys Knight, Idris Muhammad etc.

SHOTGUN: ‘Party Right Here’ (LP ‘Kingdom Come’ US/MCA MCA-5317).
Appropriate party noises and answering chants spike this solid simple brassy 118bpm smacker, ‘Bad Babe‘ being a leaping 120 bpm lurcher with yowling synth.

MTUME: ‘So You Wanna Be A Star’ (LP ‘In Search Of The Rainbow Seekers’ US Epic JE 35017).
Languidly swinging 115bpm thumper with grittier break and build-up near end, but nothing on Mtume & Lucas’s LP betters the included ‘Give It On Up‘.

SADAO WATANABE: ‘Orange Bypass’ (LP ‘Autumn Blow’ US Inner City IC 6064).
Now on cheaper US label through City Sounds maybe, but beware as apart from this less than compulsive 120 – 124 – 126bpm specialist jazz rhythm skitterer with Patrice Rushen piano the entire “live” set is very complex pure jazz and not a patch on the Columbia double set.

PRINCE: ‘Uptown’ (US Warner Bros WBS495390.
Squeaky bouncily leaping 129bpm 7in bounder could almost have 2 – Tone appeal!


UK NEWIES

DEODATO: ‘Night Cruiser’ (Warner Bros K 17696T).
Terrific thumping and jumping lush 114bpm jazz instrumental driver with several chop – start points stronger than the gradually building intro, now on 12in with the similar but more circuitously melodic 114bpm ‘Love Magic‘ as double-value flip.

TOM BROWNE: ‘Thighs High To The Sky’ (Arista ARIST 12367).
Guffaw-introed heavy funk loosely structured clapping 119 – 118 (chick) – 120bpm 12in roller goes into a quieter chick-sung break and could be not as cohesively catchy for mass pop appeal as ‘Jamaica’, though the real funk fans are digging it already off the few promo acetates so far in circulation.

DAVID BOWIE: ‘Fashion’ (LP ‘Scary Monsters’ RCA BOW LP 2).
Not quite as pure funk, this heavily thudding smash due on 12in is 110bpm just like Queen – which it chops and synchs in and out of sensationally (but beware the quieter intro is on the half-beat).

BARBARA THOMPSON: ‘Sunset’ (MCA MCAT 621).
UK-based jazz saxist’s skipping 119 (intro) – 123 – 120 – 122 – 123bpm 12in instrumental smacker is by turns romping and repetitively jolting (the 120bpm bit), and rather strong.

MICHAEL HENDERSON: ‘Wide Receiver’ (Buddah BDSL 494).
On 3-track 12in, this great catchy US smash 125bpm P’funk bounder smacks along getting stronger all the time and possibly chop-starts best where he goes “hit me hit me” – in any case ‘One Nation Under A Groove’ vari-synchs – mind bogglingly well out of it! – the flip housing his old 123bpm ‘Happy‘ instrumental snapper and 124bpm ‘I Can’t Help It‘ vocal.

LEO’S SUNSHIPP: ‘Give Me The Sunshine’ (Grapevine REDC 3).
Lowrell – like throatily wailing atmospheric soulful steady 92 (intro) – 95 – 93 – 97bpm jogger and the Al Johnson – covered 101 – 100 – 101 – 100 – 102bpm ‘I’m Back For More‘ are suddenly on good value 12in ages after the 1978-recorded LP was much sought on import.

FREEEZ: ‘Stay’ (Pink Rhythm 12 PINKY 2).
Bass-jolted jittery rocking polyrhythmic 113 (intro) – 122 – 124 – 125 – 126 (piano) – 128 – 126bpm 12in instrumental swayer builds tension with chix – sung choruses through pretty guitar, honking sax, pounding piano, snappy bass and searing sax solos to become a powerful jazzy driver, the good snappy 124 – 126 – 128bpm ‘Hot Footing It‘ flip being even jazzier.

EARTH WIND & FIRE: ‘Let Me Talk’ (CBS 8982).
Ultra-jittery staccato segmented 105 (intro) – 110 – 111 – 112 – 113bpm 7in brassy blaster with a less strident longer B-side version, there possibly being a 12in soon.

IDRIS MUHAMMAD: ‘For Your Love’ (Fantasy FTCT 191).
Sombre steadily thudding atmospheric jiggly but sedate 109 – 110bpm 12in vocal jogger (with an eye-cued slow prelude) synchs sensationally between Teena Marie and William DeVaughn where it sounds stronger than if just played on its own.

JIMMY T. AND RICKY D.: ‘Closer’ (Laser LAS 33).
Acappella – introed catchily crafted pop-slanted semi-soul duetted little 36bpm 7in swayer.

ROLLING STONES: ‘She’s So Cold’ (EMI RSR 106).
Great full-tilt 141bpm 7in rock strutter is interestingly the same BPM as Police.

  1. As far as I know there’s no film footage of Caister from its golden era 1979-85 as many have bemoaned under uploaded audio tapes on YouTube – what a pity that the original plan to film this one never happened.

    1. Surprised no one filmed it as the early 80s was a boom time for those new fangled video recorders. My mate worked in an electrical store and he would bring one home- a big beast with its own power pack- all weighed a ton! We used to do “vox pops” in the street – convincing the punters we were working for local TV station- they all fell for it!
