May 10, 1986: Thomas & Taylor, Chris Paul, Skyy, Ca$hflow, C.M. Dance

ODDS ‘N’ BODS

PATTI LaBELLE is going to disappoint everyone who’s just given her a smash as she’s chickened out of her concerts here on account of the terrorist bomb scare, but in her place we could be getting separate visits from Anita Baker and Patti Austin — who’d you rather see?! . . . Steve Walsh is to star in a movie, filmed in London over the next two months, as the gigantic leader of a tribe of post-nuclear holocaust mutants (obviously someone saw ‘Thunderdome’, though whether this’ll be for cinema or just video release is unclear at the moment): more immediately, his Soul Set returns to The Hippodrome next Wednesday (14) with a mock-up radio studio built on stage and many PAs . . . Disco Mix Club’s Megamixers night at the same venue last week could have been busier but was a good showcase for some non-competitive scratching — Les Adams in particular did serious damage to ‘Just Buggin’ and ‘Alice’ . . . New York master cutter Steinski’s latest non-commercial offering, due on ultra-scarce vinyl and already about on cassette (stay tuned to Capital Radio!), is ‘The Motorcade Sped On‘, doing for President Kennedy’s assassination what ’19’ did for Vietnam, setting actuality news reports to what’s presumably a purpose-built hip hop backing (rather than snippets of well known records this time), making a hook out of the repeated line “Mrs Kennedy jumped up, she called ‘Oh no’” . . . Princess producer Pete Waterman says we should have heard the stuff he had to cut out of Cheese’s mix! (‘I’ll Keep On Loving You’ meanwhile is being remixed by Bruce Forest for the US) . . . Champion Records picked up Word Of Mouth featuring DJ Cheese ‘Coast To Coast‘, and — cross your fingers — could well have Harleqiun Four’s ‘Set It Off’! . . . Tim Westwood interestingly observes that nearly all the calls received by Dial-A-Beat (the expensive ‘M’-rate ‘phone a disc service he hosts) are during office hours, when obviously lots of funky secretaries are getting hip at their bosses’ expense . . . Greg Edwards ousts Gary Crowley from Capital Radio’s week nights, this week starting a new half ‘n half soul ‘n style show 8-10pm Tuesday to Friday, as well as his Saturday ‘Soul Spectrum’ of course . . . JJ Barnes at the last moment turned down the chance of a world-wide deal with EMI, his lucky replacement being Steve Mancha: both are Sixties soul legends now best remembered (unfortunately) for their northern soul sides . . . Linda Creed, who partners Thom Bell writing Philly Sound hits for most notably The Stylistics, has died aged just 37 of cancer — she’s currently charting as co-writer of ‘The Greatest Love Of All’ . . . Pauli Carman used to lead Champaign . . . O’chi Brown ‘Whenever You Need Somebody’ (on Mercury there) and then Pet Shop Boys ‘West End Girls (Remix)’ topped US Club Play, Stephanie Mills ‘I Have Learned To Respect The Power Of Love‘ (a Rene & Angela-penned ballad) Black 45s, and Janet Jackson Black LPs in Billboard . . . Billboard’s disco columnist Brian Chin is chuffed that instead of flowers he gave the Anita Baker album to Jane Torvill after a New York Torvill & Dean gig! . . . Anita Baker’s first ever UK single will have to be ‘Sweet Love’ as a video’s been made for its US release . . . The SOS Band’s follow-up will be ‘Borrowed Love’ . . . I never know why otherwise quite soulful seeming DJs still support the pop material that Level 42 have been making in the main, albeit stylishly, for the last few years . . . Gilles Peterson is amongst the jocks at Andros’s trendy War nights in London St Martin’s Lane Lacey’s for the next six Thursdays . . . Superfly co-presents Saxon Studio International at Bristol Mecca Mayfair Rooms this Saturday (10), and at Gloucester Jamaican Sport & Social Club on Friday fortnight (23) . . . Sunday (11) Chris Brown & Johnnie Walker start up The Stronghold weekly at Camberley’s Cambridge Nightclub, playing every vintage, type and ethnic origin of black music that fits . . . Danny Smith spins hard funk ‘n soul Fri/Sat with guest jocks at Hunstanton’s Club Alexia . . . Paul Burnett’s next rap attack under the guise of PB Squad, following earlier send-ups of ‘Convoy’ and ‘Rambo’, is ‘Walking The Dog’ — as in ‘Mad Dog’ Gadaffi . . . RELEASE THE TENSION!


HOT VINYL

THOMAS & TAYLOR: ‘You Can’t Blame Love’ (Cooltempo COOLX 123)
Married soul duo Lamar Thomas and Judy Taylor are hopefully headed for a crossover hit with this lovely lazily swaying 102¼-102½-102¼-102½bpm duet, punctuated by haunting War-like harmonica and tinged with southern soul despite being recorded in New York, already much played by radio in London at least (edit, and 0-62¼-62½bpm ‘We Need Company’ flip). They recently visited for some PAs and are due here again, not being put off by bomb scares, which surely deserves support?

CHRIS PAUL: ‘Expansions ’86 (Expand Your Mind)’ (Fourth & Broadway 12BRW 48)
Here we go! South Harrow’s Jeff Lorber has linked Lonnie Liston Smith’s jazz-funk classic to the 113¾bpm ‘Set It Off’ beat, with guest vocals by David Joseph. To say it sizzles is an understatement! Why can’t it last longer?

SKYY: ‘Givin’ It (To You)’ (US Capitol V-15226)
Producer/writer Randy Muller is right on form, as are the ever distinctive sounding New York Skyy, whose opening “uh-uh yeah” and patented synth swirl will make fans feel immediately at home as this beefily bounding 113½bpm powerhouse pusher sets up an ultra infectious bright breezy lick (in three versions). A biggie!

CASHFLOW: ‘Mine All Mine’ (Club JABX 30)
By now everyone halfway funky must know that this Larry Blackmon-produced lurching 105¼bpm grinder is a dead ringer for Fatback’s ‘I Found Lovin’. On 12-inch it’s been released simultaneously in two separate forms, the original untouched LP Version being coupled with the similarly tempoed jazz-funkier 98½bpm ‘It’s Just A Dream‘, plus the Cameo-like 108bpm ‘Party Freak (Latin Rascals Edit)‘ import hit that’s common to both bits of vinyl. The original actually now sounds rather rough and raw in comparison with Mark Berry’s much mellower remixes, which on Club JABXR 30 comprise the less densely Fatback-like 105¼bpm Club Mix, more straightforward 105bpm Extended Version and Dub Mix. You pays your money and you takes your choice (for Phonogram, that’s the real meaning of Cashflow)!

C.M. DANCE: ‘Off The Hook’ (US Midnight Sun MSR-I004)
Starting with an exciting blaze of cuts and beats, this jittery electro 112½-0bpm Shannon-ish girl cooed ditty is inappropriately titled as it’ll hook ya for sure with its catchy lines and juddery tension (strong dub flip). Rochelle, Joyce Sims, now this.

WILLIE COLLINS: ‘Where You Gonna Be Tonight?’ LP (US Capitol ST-12442)
New York’s singing postman hasn’t given up his day job yet, but on the showing of this debut set he’s sure to as it’s great. Handsome and soulfully light voiced, he’s aimed at the ladies with hints of (Freddie) Jackson, Vandross, Pendergrass, Kashif and that ilk. Most rhythmic are the smoothly skipping 0-113½bpm title track wriggler and gently lurching 103¾bpm ‘Sticky Situation‘, but it’s the slowies that really score, the romantic candle lit 45½-0bpm ‘First Time Making Love‘, Womack & Womack-penned 50½bpm ‘Restless‘, already 12-inched 73bpm ‘Let’s Get Started‘, traditionally soulful 78½bpm ‘Girl In The Corner’, tenderly tortured 0-51½-0bpm ‘Ain’t No Woman’, only the McFadden & Whitehead-produced dated moody 58¾-117½bpm ‘Determination’ letting the set down.

AURRA: ‘You And Me Tonight (Midnight Mix)’ (10 Records TEN 71-13)
Timmy Regisford & Boyd Jarvis have added extra amusing dialogue and a buoyantly tripping jiggle to the beat for an excellent timely 108¾bpm remix, flipped by the long original and a short instrumental.

THE CONTROLLERS: ‘My Secret Fantasy’ (LP ‘Stay’ US MCA Records MCA-5681)
Long awaited, the mellow and very soulful fellas’ album lives up to expectations with such highlights as this gentle ‘All Night Long’ tempoed 94½bpm swayer, an exquisite Dells-ish 47¾bpm treatment of Marvin’s ‘Distant Lover‘ (with a spine-tingling long acappella section before the beat returns), ‘Sexual Healing’-ish 95½bpm ‘Break Out The Love‘, smoochy (0-)73½bpm ‘Deeper In Love‘, their Loose Ends-ish 97¾bpm title track hit, and breezily bumping 115½bpm ‘Bad Bad Jama’, (0-)115½bpm ‘So Glad’, (0-) 113½bpm ‘Got A Thang’.

GUINN: ‘Open Your Door’ (Motown GUINNT 1)
The singing Guinn Family, four guys and three gals (one a friend), add a touch of contemporary soul class to Motown’s roster with this smoothly wailing (0-)90½bpm slinky slow roller, now 12-inched (with the 0-74½bpm ‘Sincerely‘) but unaltered from their LP ‘Guinn’ (Motown ZL 72418), which includes such as the lovely 84½bpm ‘Dreamin‘ and more upbeat 0-113bpm ‘People Will Be People‘ in a consistently good set.

THE REAL THING: ‘Can’t Get By Without You (Special DJ Mix)’ (PRT 12P 352)
Also the original 1976 follow-up to ‘You To Me Are Everything’, this always seemed slightly lacklustre in comparison and now sounds drearily lethargic in its episode 101½-102-0bpm modern remix (not, apparently, by Froggy Productions Inc this time), although in the current climate anything that people can hum from memory is likely to be a hit regardless.

PRETTY RICKY & BOO-SKI: ‘It’s Mine’ (be*bop & Fresh 12DANCE 1, via Pinnacle)
Another new label from Cherry Red Records kicks off with a Spyder D-produced basic 101½bpm rap’n scratch in two versions, plus three versions of the 123bpm ‘Dreams‘, for hardened hip hoppers. The 17 year old duo are labelmates of Whistle on Select in the US, but more serious (not buggin’) by comparison.

BEASTIE BOYS: ‘Hold It, Now Hit It’ (Def Jam TA 7055)
The white punk rappers’ genuinely hip hop 95½bpm gangster rocker cuts up some famous break beats and is now out here.

LEW KIRTON: ‘Don’t Wanna Wait’ (US Tweedside LK 001)
Don’t make the mistake of judging this piece of plastic by its naff A-side, the flip is an excellent rhythmically ambiguous lightly flying 111½bpm soul canterer-cum-wriggler, with a tricky texture of beats at the start for mixing jocks to negotiate. Lew’s impassioned voice counterpoints a breathily semi-falsetto chorus to fine effect.

BOOKER NEWBERRY: ‘Take A Piece Of Me’ (Omni Records 120MN 1, via Pinnacle)
A satisfying rich voiced sneaky swaying (0-)103½bpm soul jogger (in four mixes) meandering along quite exotically, if not maybe all that grabbingly. Nice though.

GEORGE CLINTON: ‘Hey Good Lookin’ (LP ‘R&B Skeletons In The Closet’ US Capitol ST-12481)
Although there’s much to appreciate on an intellectual level here, nothin’s shakin’ like the single for dancers, this chanting and chatting bubbly 114¾bpm basher being closest to a groove.

  1. Chris Paul had this and 1 or 2 other big club/London hits at this time but had to wait another 5 years to make it really big as Isotonik and his legendary Orange raves in London.

    And this week we have the only Beastie Boys tune that I ever heard on pirate radio / in a club//at a weekender and the only Beastie Boys record i didn’t dislike.

    Like

  2. One of those playing tricks with my memory things here which the column has revealed – I was sure Willie Collins had his big hit before mid 1986. But clearly not.

    Unfortunately for him a large part of his potential audience (in the UK at least) was about to be washed away to other pastures by the big changes starting to happen around this time.

    Alexander o’Neal and Freddie Jackson had got well enough known before house hit to insulate themselves for a few years against the chamges. As I’ve mentioned before , Jo and because most people I went raving with in 1988/89 already had their records, Alex and Freddie and Luther were played back at the house after raves along with the other traditional funky stuff but Willie and Sherrick and Lillo were just too late over here to make it big.

    This column must be about to undergo pretty seismic change as we go into 1987 and especially 1988.
