  • Hf&s thurs dec 02: baker brothers live!

    Thursday December 02: The Baker Brothers live. Guest DJ: Liam Large (Bring it Up)

    Hot, Funky & Sweaty. Every Thursday at The Salmon & Compass, 58 Penton St (corner of Penton & Chapel Mkt), Angel, London N1. 8pm-2am. £2/£3 with band, free before 9pm. Info: 020 7837 3891

    It’s the last live edition of HF&S before the year is out and it’s gonna be a big one! As far as HF&S are concerned, The Baker Brothers are the most underrated funk band on the scene right now. Why are these guys largely passed over by the funk 45 fans? Difficult to say – maybe it’s the small-hole label designs or the way they’re marketed. All we know is that they’re shit hot live and so much better then you’d think! We can’t wait to have them back.

    This Thursday also welcomes the return of HF&S regular, Liam Large. LiamÂ’s no student of soul, and heÂ’s no bum when it comes to chasing down those elusive Saadias either! This guy has serious tuneage, records of a quality matched only by his skill at putting them all together, far more so than your average rare box spinner...

    Anyone coming tonight? You know they're gonna be good!

    Next week is the last HF&S of 04 (Dec 09). Not only do I have the mighty Si Cheeba nodding his head like a one of them back seat doggies on speed to his craazy boogaloo 45s, but also Mark Res will be spinning a few as well as selling some 'nice pieces'. Not only that, but most likely, we'll be joined by none other than Jan Weissenfeldt of the Poets of Rhythm.

    Anyhow, Baker Brothers tonight - you know it makes sense!

      Another strange absence of HFS regulars from the board: you lot getting sick of it then?!

      Surprising because BBs were amazing! Packed out too! Plus they previewed their track for the LP. Believe it or not, it's a version of 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover.

          What's their version like? I love this song. Trevor Jackson covered it on his Playgroup LP inna reggae stylee.

            Pretty good. I only heard it the one time, though Rich played me the instrumental work-in-progress in his car too. The vocals are done by this American fella called Nathan, a poet who's recorded with the BB's before I believe. It has a mid-tempo beat and breaks out BB style in the choruses and a big funkdown at the end. Not a great description I know...

            I never knew abuot the reggae version, though I suppose there's a reggae version of everything!

              I've always been underwhelmed by these guys, though I do admire their ambition in managing to promote themselves so well.

              I remember asking them years and years back to play the Ramsey version of Everybody's Got Something To Hide and they didn't know what I was talking about and asked where they could get it. And I wasn't even slurring! I was thinking like, 'dude's, groovy Beatles covers is DJing 101.' I didn't say that though, as everyone knows what it's like to be DJ hassled.

                Plenty of shitty twatsville dancing to cheeze instead of HF&S !!


                Nice champagne and free bar though. Today has felt like a long day in't office though...

                I'll look forward to THE BIG ONE next thursday then at Salmon... expect lots of blends and re-edits NICK !!

                only joking
