  • Hf&s thurs oct 21: boogaloo investigators live

    Thursday Oct 21. Boogaloo Ivestigators live! Guest DJs: Brent Goodshell & Andy Noble (The Neapolitans, Milwaukee)
    Hot, Funky & Sweaty. Every Thursday at The Salmon & Compass, 58 Penton St (corner of Penton & Chapel Mkt), Angel, London N1. 8pm-2am. £3, free before 9pm

    Big one this Thursday! To celebrate the birthday of HF&S founder, Nick.C, the Boogaloo Investigators have agreed to make the long trip from Glasgow once more, since they’re the best funk band in the land and nothing short of their dynamic, funky R&B sound will do! If you still haven’t checked these guys yet, then for God’s sake get down here – truly incredible!

    Making the even further trip from Milwaukee - guest DJs, Brent Goodshell of The Neapolitans and Andy Noble of Lotusland. BrentÂ’s band has been releasing a blistering array 45 releases of late and Andy runs the Chicago based record store, Lotusland. Both regularly turn up ultra-rare funk monsters through buying trips and hunting expeditions alike, as you will hear for yourself, along with previews of tracks from the new Neapolitans LP.

        Managing to get this in almost an hour ahead of Greg's estimate, here's the post HFS rundown!

        My head is a seething black pit of pain.

        The night was incredible - packed not in a best of brillo way- that was scary packed, but in a 'I can actaually move a bit' kind of way... Booglaoos killed it, especially with a rather nice Led Zep cover, and the Milwaukee lads' 45s were just plain nuts, playing an almost 100% local set - nice to hear the Bartell twice, what a tune, what a flip...

            It was touch and go for a minute there while Cheebs hunted down his briefcase - inside were millions of pounds from the City (should have been handcuffed to his wrist before he left the office)...  

            But before that thrilling finale, the band rocked (in a gritty r'n'b kinda way). The tinnitus my right ear suffered at the onslaught of the snare may just be temporary. Really, really impressive. Is the 'Sleepwalk' track their own or a cover? And the Milwaukee guy's 45's were filthy, in particular that one tune that went on forever (all that on a 45???) without getting tired. Plus a good turnout to witness it all go down. Happy Birthday Nick!

               
            You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

              That was a cool night, was a bit gutted to have to leave early but it was great to finally see the Boogaloo Investigators, liked the cover of Amen Brother. Do they sound as good on wax as they do live?

                sadly no - i think they should do a live album (or 'fake' live album) though. that would sound awesome. definitely my favourite of the new bands around, maybe because of the more R'n'B material.

                and Heartbreaker was one of my favourite Led Zep songs and sounded really good, so that was a great idea

                  Ditto what bongolia says. Blistering live but pretty flat on record. Like most of these new funk recordings.

                    You&#39;ll have to wait til the LP is ready to pass final judgement on that. Heartbreakers will be on my LP, early 05.
