February 2, 1985: “Just think, Breakdance Revival nostalgia nights as a way of filling clubs mid-week in 1999!”

ODDS ‘N’ BODS

Dreadful news for anyone looking forward to the Disco Mix Club’s trip to New York in March – their carrier Virgin Atlantic has cancelled its midweek flights for the rest of the winter and DMC can’t find any other airline as cheap, so the whole trip is postponed until hot ‘n humid August when it will be rescheduled to coincide with the New Music Seminar … don’t know about you, but I was really counting the days until that welcome late winter break! … DMC’s 2nd International DJ Convention remains at London’s Hippodrome on Sunday March 10, with the addition of the Mixing Championships as detailed in the advertisement last week … ‘Shaft’ by Eddy and the Soulband belonged to Phonogram all along through some Dutch connection and thus will be out here on Club in a fortnight at the same time as closely related Polydor release Van Twist, which they’ve already promoed well in advance (their version is the green vinyl mix, the earlier white one seeming to be 121⅓-0bpm) … Sasss’s girls aren’t called Jones after all, they’re Marilyn Ashford & Karen Scott in their recording debut … Amii Stewart ‘Friends’ in the extended remix which’ll grace the UK version of her LP is now on Dutch High Fashion Music 12in … Change’s B-side medley fluctuates around approx 111-110-111-109-110-111bpm … Loose Ends adopt a deliberate wriggling 102⅔bpm Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis-type approach on ‘You Got Me Hangin’ On A String Now‘ (?), currently on single-sided white label … Julia & Co’s ‘I’m So Happy’, due in shops the end of next week, is less instant than last year’s ‘Sugar Samba’, a disjointedly jolting then happily shuffling 111⅓bpm romper breaking down again towards the end … Michael Z (presumably Zager), somewhat pointlessly considering Paul Hardcastle’s major success, has done a 124bpm cover of the original ‘Rain Forest’ (US SSS International SSS-878) — meanwhile, Paul’s The Silent Underdog ‘Pigbag’ remake seems hottest in the Midlands … Saturday’s Commonwealth Institute-organised seminar ‘Rock ‘N Roots’ was a lot more worthwhile than might have been anticipated, it being heartening to find black music attracting so many articulate believers (any future seminars there will be a must) … Soul On Sound starts reviving the old Funktion moveable club idea as Private Funktion next Wednesday (6) at nowhere less than London’s Hippodrome, with Toby Perkins, Ray Stevens & Tosca presenting many star PAs and a free SOS cassette for all ticket buyers (a discounted £6 only), the soon to be announced Thur/Sun Private Funktion nights being equally well housed at two legendary swish Mayfair joints … Bootleggers’ Ethiopia charity last week, at which I supplied the ’60s music and Sothebys auctioned such star-donated goodies as George Michael’s old blue jeans, raised over £19,000 … America and Britain have now diagonally swapped singles by Kool & The Gang, with ‘Fresh’ the US follow-up to its UK follow-up ‘Misled’, both of which have been remixed (for eventual release here) by Mark Berry — with whom after several near misses and some successful telephone contact in the last year I finally came face to face over an orange juice last Wednesday, during his latest London visit to avail himself of our superior studio facilities and the low pound while producing Scottish rockers Chewy Raccoon (his hot remix secret is to reproduce the rhythm tracks, bring up the snare, boost the bottom and clean out the middle!) … Wednesday had also seen me remeeting after many years both Island’s founder Chris Blackwell and Tommy Boy’s Boston-bred boss Tom Silverman for a late lunch pizza, Tom revealing that despite its reputation for pure electro his label is increasingly using “real” instruments (spurred on by the doo-wop/soul revivalism of its most successful act, currently hugely so in the States, the Force MDs), Chris in turn revealing that he’s making a movie in Washington DC about the go go music scene (and that — something I never knew — he only signed up Free after talking to me about them at a gig at the Marquee!) … I also learnt that go go is so named because of its “go go bells”, whatever they are! … Britain’s record business is leaping onto the go go market with such voracity it should be gone gone by Easter: Streetwave have even re-recorded ‘Bustin’ Loose‘ by something called the Go Go All Stars — how low can you go go? … Polydor go go “shoo-be-do-wop”? … Kurtis Blow’s scene-setting ‘Party Time‘ is one that should be re-released, its lyrics actually explaining the rhythm, and if so let’s hope it’s in the subsequent longer LP mix … Zulu Nation mouthpiece Tim Westwood is starting to sound like the old jazz-funk mafia jocks four years ago, saying how now that the media are paying less attention to hip hop it’ll go back underground to become stronger than ever and last forever — which in a limited way it probably will, just like all the other old crazes that become a youthful lifestyle (just think, Breakdance Revival nostalgia nights as a way of filling clubs mid-week in 1999!): however, Tim, somewhere you missed my original point, which was that electro music had creatively peaked before the film makers last year then turned your precious lifestyle into a mass market fad, which has given a lot of passing fun to a lot of kids, most of whom are only attracted by the thrill of watching people spinning on their shoulderblades and, as history has shown, will soon fall prey to the next craze that commercial pressures foist upon them — supporters like these the Nation needs? — whereas I would agree that the specific rap scene, here so closely connected with toasting, really will continue to develop … Paul Major (Birmingham Millionaire) requests a complete listing of James Brown’s singles, without obviously realising the enormity of such a list: Mr Brown satisfied the juke box market in America (and filled his pockets) by issuing a different single either by himself as a vocalist or instrumentalist or as the JBs (for instance), just about every month throughout the period approximately 1965-1975! … Pete Haigh, (0253-824156) who guests at Preston Cloud’s Tudor Room next Thursday (7) for the local Polytechnic’s soulful Spectrum Society (details Richard Smart at the SU on Preston 58382), is after the P’funky Sweat Band ‘Jamaica‘ (US Family LP or 12in) — “that was a go-goer!” quoth he … Winchester City Football Club chairman and commercial stationers sales director Keith Bell actually sent me a brand new Rexel ENM hand tally counter with the info that (including VAT) it costs £8.64 trade, £13.29 retail, (incidentally you can still get one at Rymans on special order): anyway, our Keith, obviously in a league with music fan Elton John, is looking for copies of Dooley Silverspoon ‘As Long As You Know Who You Are‘ and Faith, Hope & Charity ‘To Each His Own‘ on Eastleigh 619023! … Valerie Simpson, not to seem ungallant, looked just a little older than 16 when I saw her, in luxuriant wig and figure hugging diamante encrusted pink sheath dress, with a pomaded and quiffed Nick Ashford in ankle flashing tight Italian suit, appearing as Valerie & Nick at Harlem’s Apollo Theater in May 1964 — they had several singles under that name on the Glover label then, before the next year, while working for Scepter/Wand owning Florence Greenberg & Marvin (Prelude) Schlacter’s publishing company Flomar Music, they wrote with Joshie Armstead ‘Let’s Get Stoned‘ (and its Oct-Dec ’65 R&B hit A-side ‘Never Had It So Good‘) in fact for blind white singer Ronnie Milsap on Scepter (everyone then assumed he was black before he became a Country superstar), the song only in its first cover version becoming a soul smash the following summer by Ray Charles … Milsap’s matrix number was 603941B … Colin Hudd at Dartford Flicks is currently raving about the Whispers’ late ’70s UK RCA 12in revival of the Bread oldie ‘Make It With You‘, now “just right for ’85” he says … MCA plugger Paul Bunting has only been unreliable because he slipped on some ice and was hospitalised with concussion — which nevertheless doesn’t stop Disco Gary Van Den Bussche (London Tramp/Croydon Musique/Maidstone Sunset) moaning “why are MCA so unhelpful to DJs, maybe they think they don’t need us?” … Solar 102.45FM have been patchily off-air as a result of a truly piratical and stupid spate of inter-station sabotage, while Horizon’s 94.5FM test transmission returned at the weekend: however, while it may have housed Radio Fulham, 92.1FM is now home for LWR playing mainly soul and some Hi-NRG around the clock … Carl Richardson, still Hi-NRG at Hull Fagins Sat, goes gay weekly from this Thursday (31) at Bradford’s free admission Benson’s in Simes Street … Norman Scott does Luton’s gay Bolts every Sunday … Hi-NRG jocks of a less upfront nature who couldn’t be bothered to send in charts over Christmas have been wittering on again about the printed results, so here then for them is their own current Hi-NRG Disco list, compiled from last week’s mailed-in DJ returns but totally excluding the Sunday ‘phone-in’ “upfront” jocks about whom some are seemingly still suspicious — compare this result with the complete combined chart’s positions (in brackets) to see how it holds back, or is held back (according to your viewpoint), the “upfront effect”: 1 (1) Earlene Bentley/Sylvester, 2 (4) Samantha Gilles, 3 (10) Dead Or Alive, 4 (2) Carol Lynn Townes, 5 (5) Lorraine McKane, 6 (3) Sylvester, 7 (6) Lydia Steinman, 8 (15) Sheryl Lee Ralph (remix), 9 (24) Sheryl Lee Ralph (UK), 10 (9) Carol Jiani, 11 (7) Touchdown, 12 (25) Venus/Jeanie Tracy (remixes), 13 (23) Martinique, 14 (12) Hot Gossip, 15 (8) Fancy, 16 (17) Melissa Manchester, 17 (18) Sam Harris, 18 (-) Bronski Beat LP, 19 (-) Girly, 20 (22) Evelyn Thomas, 21 (11) Sinitta, 22 (20) Tabu, 23 (14) Village People, 24 (-) Flirts, 25 (26) Tony Caso, 26 (-) Princess UFO, 27 (-) The Limit, 28 (-) Pointer Sisters, 29 (-) Barbara Pennington, 30 (-) Jolo … Claudja Barry, Nayobe, Koffie, Alicia Myers, Barbara Fowler, Cruisin’ Gang, Stephanie Wells (ranked by strength) all have mail-in support, leaving just the newest Peggy Blu and Patti LaBelle making it purely on upfront play last weekend — but look out for Sheryl Lee Ralph ‘You’re So Romantic‘/’Evolution‘ off her US LP, which could have reached the 30 had the “upfront effect” been as great as in recent weeks (incidentally I can’t cope with any more ‘phoned-in charts!) … I had to process every stage of all this week’s charts in Alan Jones’s brief absence, thus making the above breakdown possible, and also bringing to my notice that some new contributors are loading their charts with promo product from one company, which is pointless as that sort of chart just gets discarded — oh, and please don’t divide your returns into Disco, Nightclub and Hi-NRG if they all relate to the same basic gig, we’ll decide where you belong! … Nick Ratcliffe (Portsmouth Ritzy) addressed his latest chart to James Ingram Esq — close, but no cheesecake! … Adrian Dunbar says Southampton may not be well served with soulful record shops, but does have cable vision which plays quite a few soul/disco videos, resulting in requests at Raffles for such as Sheila E, Ashford & Simpson, Sam Harris … Friday (11) finds Jeff Young joining resident Nicky Holloway at London Bridge Tooley Street’s Royal Oak for the first weekly night of go-go soul downstairs while El Dorado & Dave Hucker latin jazz upstairs (no admission after 11.30pm) — Chris Hill being Nicky’s guest Mon (4) … Tuesday (5) Steve Walsh starts weekly along the road at Bermondsey Dockhead’s Swan & Sugarloaf … Pete Tong currently packs Friday at South Harrow Bogarts … Vicious Pink and also Floy Joy hove sent out some promotional dayglo slipmats, so thick that there can’t be many turntable spindles long enough to poke through them! … Broader than Broadway, Safer than Safeway, WOAH OH OH!


Disaster struck on Sunday evening, my typewriter broke —meaning that much of Monday was wasted in buying a replacement, so there wasn’t then time to do any HOT VINYL reviews. You can see from the chart new entries what was truly hot, and they plus more will be reviewed in full next week. Sorry!


Hi-NRG

SYLVESTER: ‘Take Me To Heaven’ (Cooltempo COOLX 106)
Both remixed by Ian Levine, the frantically rattling 0-137bpm but otherwise undistinguished choice of A-side over his flip’s previously hotter and far better 128bpm ‘Sex’ is presumably due to the latter’s lyrics and title. Hasn’t ‘Relax’ taught anyone anything?

LIFE FORCE: ‘Reach For The Stars (Remix)’ (Polo 12-37, via PRT)
Finally released just as it drops off our Hi-NRG chart alter a run of 12 weeks, which seems like craziness to me, this chick song dynamically spurting and rattling 129bpm galloper will have to convince anyone who didn’t get it on white label that they need it now (much starker 131bpm inst flip).

SINITTA: ‘Cruising’ (Fanfare 12FAN 2, via PRT)
Miquel Brown’s daughter, Amii Stewart’s niece, the perfectly formed Sinitta lets it all hang out on a perkily bounding 130bpm hark-back to ‘High Energy’ (inst flip).

HEATHER WILLIAMS: ‘Nightlife’ (Challenge TAL 11)
Simple 0 -129bpm burbler let down by bad singing (inst/edit flip).

BRADLEY AND THE BOYS: ‘Dyna-Dall’ (Hippodrome 12 HIPPO 1, via PRT)
Noisily jaunty purity 125½bpm pounder in three versions, fronted by the Hippodrome’s resident camp embarrassment — and noticeably absent from the club’s own chart contributions.


HIT NUMBERS
