  • Solar Plexus question

    you're the guys that are bound to know..

    About 12 years ago Gilles Peterson played a tune on his show that was by Solar Plexus and i think the tune might have been called Solar Plexus.
    As far as i can remember it was a kind of spacey-funky-jazzy thing with an amazing bassline.


    Now, would anyone know what it was likely to be?

    thanks

    Could you be thinking of Solar Plexus, the album by Nucleus? It doesn't have a track by that name, though, but obviously he would've mentioned the name of the album. Possibly.

            it wasn't a house track, definately a funk prog jazz thing, from the early seventies at a guess, i may have mis-remembered which bit was actually called 'Solar Plexus', (artist album or song).
            (it was followed by a terumasa hino track which i also want to find but that's a different story)

            is that the nucleus LP sermad?

                  Hello Mr Gomez,

                  SolarPlexus cut a few LPs but the one listed by Sermad is the first. It is also a Double LP.

                  Assuming Giles played a track off this LP, it may be the track 'Frygisk samba' or 'Bouilla Baisse'. Check McDooms Xmas mix if you can.

                  Aside, the guitar player from SolarPlexus cut a superb Swedish Brazilian Kids Hip-Hop record in 1969. It is a favourite of mine.

                    I found one sleeveless disc from this double awhile back - couple of really nice jazzrock cuts like 'Phrygian Samba' (must be 'Frygisk Samba' in English), but also some slightly ropey tracks - and a side-long 'Concert For Orchestra & Rock Band' suite. Definitely sounds like the LP in question, though...

                      Like he said. Good solid plays. Tough though.

                      I'm interested in the other thing you mention here Dean, late sixties Hip Hop for the kiddies? Hmmmmm.

                        As well as the Swedish Solarlexus there is a west coast 70's fusion band by the same name.

                            I've played it down Brillo and it also appears on the Easter Program mix alongside that other kids funky fave from Scandi, Bennys Badekar.

                              resurrecting an old thread...

                              two bands, one swdish, one californian.

                              the californian one did one album i can find called "voices". it has a stokning track called "torremolinos" on it, which was played by gilles way back when. goes for £15ish. rest of the album is tosh.

                              the other lot (the swedes) did a bunch of stuff, one album having on it "bouillabaise" as mentioned elswhere in the thread. it also has one other track of note. but i can't remember what it's called. sorry, a lilting latin thing that builds to a rockout crescendo in 2 minutes or so.

                              £10/12 should see you a copy i would think.

                              if you still care of course.
