  • Fresh Brillo Top Ten

    Grandslam!
    Whoa! Hungover lightbulb time...
    Why doesn't everyone whos ever been to the meet & everyone who intends to, nominate one tune along with their reason why for a collective Fresh Brillo top ten?
    If there's loads, i'll put names in a hat and draw ten, Sermad can witness! (he lives round the corner!)
    We can then see if we can get it into Grandslam maybe, though I'll bet they've got top tens coming out their ears, but we can put it elsewhere - like on this site!
    What better way to spend a weekend morn?

    Hmmm.Would this be 1 tune every month? If so I'd have to nominate :

    Don Ellis - 'French Connection Theme'

    Every time I go to switch the turntable on my hand is mysteriously drawn to this track.Not that surprising really-it opens with the theme backed by curious ring modulator tooting leading into a drum 'n conga bass riff wha wha fest.Great,tight big band stuff!To top it off it ends with the drummer testing out his drum roll technique.(Christ I'm crap at describing music )  
    Back to Neuuuuuuuuuu!

        ray johnson group - kinda groovy

        once you hear it, you won't be able to get it out of your head. nuts r'n'b style late 60s oddball keys/sax instro. primitive but oh so very very nice.

          One for the eman of ilmod;

          Jazzberry Patch - These are my friends on JBP records.
          'Tight drum intro into such a funky good time tune. Rare indie business, indeed.'

          Remember the first time you heard that one fellas?

          Or for a close second, I'ld suggest;

          Tomorrows People - Hurt Perversion.

            Lori Wells - 'I Gotcha'

            A recent present (thanks Col !) - a private press LP of standards and medleys, but this is the higlight by a country mile. Great Rhodes intro, tight rhythm section with Lori's own 'individual' way of interpreting Joe Tex topping it off. A winner !

              Michael James Kirkland - The Prophecy (Zay Records 7" )

              Has been my favourite song for the last 15 years - perfect mix of soul, funk and psyche influences. From the opening drum drop to the flanged fade out, it is a work of genius and beauty. Play it loud and then play it again louder.
              Lovely.

                Nominate just one? ####, that's tough! But for this month it has to be 'Queen Street Gang' by Arzachel. A heavy boom bap from the kit, deeep bass and hammond set to 'coronation', playing a tune we all know and love. Prog, psyche and in no way funky, but totally hip hop. All that and it features Steve Hillage?!?
                You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

                    Megaton 'Diggin' (DCA) 7&quot;

                    Obscure Meco Monardo-penned B-side of mellow folk/funk/drama beats, with tasty piano breaks, drumfills and horns, and obviously the title just darn topped it off for me! :biggrin:
