SPIRIT BAND- keep your love alive

Some enormous orig. electro funk breakbeat jam that doesn't let go... its from The Bronx 1981... I got a 12" mix that's 11minutes... and that b-beat doesn't stop ...never !! "My love for you is getting deeper, my resistance for you is gettin weaker, Keep it alive, keep your love alive !


Twilight 22 - Electric Kingdom

This is a classic break-dance jam ... naturally a NYC thingy and a staple in DJ's crates... the prod. was a super young keyboard player that programmed the synth for Stevie's "journey throught the secret life of plants" LP..this kid was 16yrs old when he sat in for the recording of Stevie's "Songs in the key of life" LP ..

Mary Wells - Gigolo (EPIC)

Mary Wells a soul singer that killed the floors with this mega disco funk jam prod by the Mizell Bros... wait til the groove drops after the intro at 50secs

FUNKAPOLITAN Run Run Run

This is a prod. by August Darnell after he moved to London in the early 80's ...August Darnell is the super talented prod. band leader from KID CREOLE & The COCONUTS, DR BUZZARD'S ORIGINAL SAVANNAH BAND etc...


MANTUS dance it freestyle rhythm (SATELLITE MUSIC INT.)

this extendend intro is huge..it's from NYC in 1979 and I think this might be one of the very 1st mixing worx that Jellybean Benitez did Killer !


Sandstorm - La Bionda 1978

Ok here I got to write native !!

I fratelli LA BIONDA (aka D.D. SOUND) 2 Italiani ke hanno fatto carriera e sono pionieri della disco Italiana..parecchi anni prima ke esistesse il termine Italo-Disco, le bombe di D.D. SOund, La Bionda, Giorgio, Munich Machine, Capricorn, Easy Going, Kasso etc distruggevano le piste da ballo delle disco + all'avanguardia nel mondo..... anche loro vivevano a Monaco di Baviera in quei tempi (come Giorgio M.)..Produssero anche i famosissimi brani dei Righeira

UNIQUE - WHAT I GOT IS WHAT YOU NEED (PRELUDE)

I never stop finding another awesome 12" on PRELUDE Rcds... Probably the most essential NYC label for 80s electronic-disco-boogie...and that's where Mr. F.Kevorkian started his career doing remixes, a&r or whatever... a ton of Preludes 12"s I have have FK has the mixer... this one has the DUB mix on the B side

Karen Silver - Nobody Else (QUALITY Rcds)

How funky is this groove ?... Very if Mr Gino Soccio is producing your track ! I believe the singer is a Canadian like Gino... The 12" I got of this doesn't have an instr. though ..that would be even better but a great vox tk nonetheless..

FLAKES - Sugar Frosted Lover ©1980 (MAGIC DISC Rcds)

A recent find.. never heard this artist before but with the instr. on the b side and its hot !!



The System - You Are in My System

Classic NYC snappy electro-r&b-disco hit... amazing bassline !!

The Whatnauts - Help Is On The Way (HARLEM INTERNATIONAL)

This one is soo classic I think even house pets and probably roaches too be dancing to this one !! .. One of the songs that begot many other classix by sampling etc...

again, backing track and the lyrics, lyrics !!!

We need some help on the way, and we don't need worries but...

Divine Sounds - What people do for money

Super Classic original eldctro joint from Brooklyn,NY early 80's... ridiculous jam, with typically conscious lyrics of old school rap... xtra strong track with uplifting verses.. what more could u need ?? ..I knoow...

"might sound sad, it might sound funny, but that's what ppl do for the money.."




Holger Czukay "Photo Song"

Another one from TURIACO's shop in Padova... I think this is pretty rare by now and the song is so strong ..nobody has a problem with it ..do you ?... I mean this guy and his music..fuggetaboutit !! Holger Czukay 4EVER !


Clarence Carter ---- Messin' With My Mind

This is one of the 12" I found at that shop in Padova, TURIACO (Via Tiziano Aspetti) ... fantastic song ? You messing with my mind never gets old !



Modern Romance - Can You Move

another proof that " I dunno shit ?'... Was listening to a set by F.Knuckles from the '80s at the Warehouse or The Power Plant, one of his two classic Chi-Town residencies and I heard this extremely funky cut with a strong Salsa influence in which the singer-rapper kept goin on about "can u move, can u move, can u move to this Latin groove"... I was like "what the fuck is that yo? I'm from Nueva York"... (..can't move to the Latin beat anyways but still I love a real Salsa beat...then I asked my disco historian connect. in Bologna, Mr. Luca Trevisi, he hadda know, and of course he did , he was like "Sounds like u talking about Modern Romance"..that's right, an all white group from Britain who came from the punk rock new-wave side of things !! who'd have known ?


Bill Withers - You got the stuff (Long Version)

Actually I don't own this one as it's an expensive one... The second half of this tune is the killer instrumental break that goes on for a few min and which was one of the first EDITS released by Harvey and his partner in the early '90s with his BLACK COCK 12" ...that's as rare and expensive as the orig. 12"...Harvey and BALCK COCK were most likely the originators of the post-disco "edits" trend that's why Harvey got mad respect in the first place... besides being a selector of impeccable taste..


T-Connection - Take it To The Limit

Now you'll understand I dunno shit !! This is actually my ver 1st T Connect. 12" Very successful group from the Bahamas..like Sidney Poitier, Wally Badarou, The Compass Point All Stars etc.. .... act-like-u-know !!



TOM BROWNE - ROCKIN' RADIO (LONG VERSION)

All I knew and had from this Jazz horn player disco-funk artist was "Funkin for Jamaica/Fungimama" ...2 superb disco-funk-boogie jams... then I found this which is even more on the electro jazz disco funk vocoder breakbeat tip !!


THE FEARLESS FOUR "Rocking it" (ENJOY Rcds)

I found this a few mos back, a classic super early electro hip-hop on ENJOY Rcds. prod by pioneer drum machine don Pumpkin using a Kraftwerk loop...it's from 1982 but it's still 'rocking it' !!

George Soros's hit-squad

George Soros's hit-squad yesterday launched an assault against Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, the one Ibero-American President who is insisting that legalized "personal consumption" of drugs must be reversed, because it is a cover for increasing drug mob activities. Soros's Human Rights Watch/Americas (HRW) held a press conference yesterday in New York City to release a new report alleging that Uribe is covering up links between his administration and the paramilitaries. BBC TV, naturally, played up the HRW report for all it is worth.
Soros' attack on President Uribe occurs in the context of that Nazi-trained British asset's drive to destroy the legitimate governments of Ibero-America and empower the drug trade networks through legalized drug consumption policies. Soros founded the Latin American Commission on Drugs and Democracy, headed by former Presidents of Brazil, Colombia and Mexico, in April 2008, to lead that drive.
The Commission held its second meeting in Bogota, Colombia on Sept. 4-5, closeting itself behind closed-doors with Soros's personal drug lobby strategist, Ethan Nadelmann. Within weeks, governments fell in line. On Oct. 1 Mexican President Felipe Calderon sent legislation to Congress, to legalize "personal doses" of every narcotic known, including cocaine, heroin and the synthetic killers. On Oct. 13, Honduran President Manuel Zelaya joined the crowd, telling a regional meeting of top anti-narcotics officials, that consumption of "chemical, synthetic and natural" drugs should be legalized, and abusers "educated" on lowering their use. If Argentina's Justice Minister has his way, Argentina will follow suit quickly.
Colombia's Uribe, however, refuses to buckle on this one, pointing out loudly, at home and internationally, that the legalization of "personal doses"--the sophist fraud championed by Soros--has increased drug consumption and provided impunity for the traffickers

Padova, its great history and dope deadstock wax finds all in one !!!


Teatro Anatomico @ Palazzo del Bo' (Uni. of Padua) : 1st place where, since 1594 they studied the human body by dissecting it... it was also highly illegal so they had to mostly do it in the dark using minimum lighting with handheld torches and smuggled corpses through that opening at the bottom... it's a remarkable wooden ampytheater-like structure that, considering torches were used for lighting and the fact that many of the students passed out (holding the torches), it has miraculously survived 5+ centuries without ever catching fire !!


Spent only one week in Padua with my fam. but I was able to see a few of my good old chaps, and another few not so good but what was I gon do ?... ahah ! seriously, only (semi)jokin !



anyways..thnx to Yero, this Cuban kid who took me to this music shop in the Arcella area of Padova that's been there for 30yrs...I didn't know it as when I left in '93 I'd stopped buying vinyl by then...but at 15, way back in 1991 (can't believe it) after having been at a couple of raves in the LA area, Marina del Rey and LAX airport, then back in Italy I was listening to ton of stuff and dancing like mad in the various clubs of Jesolo and around my home region of the Veneto (Sei-Sei near Treviso ? Il Gatto e La Volpe near Rovigo ? The Gilda After-Hrs (6am-noon) in Jesolo, Venice?). The owner of this store is a Brasilian music selector, but his store is jampacked with old vinyl that's been there for ages, 20 plus yrs. deadstock wax I can easily presume it's not even being looked at by the locals...I spent a couple of hrs and found a few, actually many classix I had to have...from 70's bits like the 10" of GIL SCOTT's "Winter in America" b/w "The revolution will not be..." and many 80's pcs like a V.A. FULL TIME Rcds. 12" with CHARLY "Spacer Woman", one of the ultra dope Italo jams playlisted by the cooler-than-thou DJs...

... for jazz lovers there's a great disco cover of J.Coltrane "Love Supreme" done by the Bigazzi Bros of Materiali Sonori Rcds. as GIOVANOTTI MONDANI MECCANICI w/ A.Robotnick (M.Dami) ..for ppl in the NY music area it's intersting to note the trumpet credit to be Fabio Morgera, an Italian musicain who I know has been in NY for many yrs... He must've been extremely young as the rcd is from 1983 !

....the only tk released in the past 15yrs is an unreleased white label off the next 12" from Venice's MORPHINE Rcds (http://www.morphinerecords.com) , Doser008 (word !!) by HIEROGLYPHIC BEING (JAMAL MOSS) who's giving us this "Gargle" tk that's like a daisy-cutter bomb of a track (The purpose for a daisy-cutter is primarily to maximize blast damage on the surface of a target)..not for everyone... certainly not for min. techno groupies ! its more like maximal techno with all that distortion but call it what u will


at the end I put an exceprpt from that great Sam Peckinpah film, "The Killer Elite" with J.Caan and R.Duvall..the part starts wiuth the girl asking :

"Got lots of girls ?" he goes "Oh yeah, tons of them, I send my extras to Turkey for harem duty" !!! e lei "I'm a virgin !" e lui "That's very nice, but I really don't have time for your confessions right now....look kid, tell you the truth, I really don't give a shit aight" !.....great lines !!!

Peech Boys - On a journey & "Dance Sister (Biofeedback)"

"Attenzione, attenzione, signorina, vai, vai, vai a viaggiare !!!"

Yeah, shame on me, but I got my 1st NYC PEECH BOYS 12" last week, "Dance Sister (Biofeedback)" cowritten and prod. with Bernard Fowler of TACKHEAD !!!! My friend Eddy a few yrs back invited me to check the show of one of his fave bands at Bowery Ballroom : B.Fowler's heavy industrial-dub outfit TACKHEAD with Keith Leblanc, Doug Wimbish and Skip Mcdonald as backing band and Adrian Sherwood on production. Incredible avant-dub-funk ...

then I found out B.Fowler was also Larry Levan's partner in this classic Garage days prod. team.

Bernard Fowler has also been a long time Rolling Stones vocalist, singing backups and touring with them.

Enjoy !

'Well You Needn't' by Larry Ridley (1975 STRATA EAST)

Found a used vinyl copy of that old Soul Jazz comp "Soul Jazz Loves Strata East" from 1994 .... I also have the superb followup, "Strata-2-East" but as it's usual with SJ comps, it introduced to some real gems, this is one of 'em... I really like when it goes disco at 7min30secs....

COSE NOSTRE

THE HARVARD YARD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSk3OIrhDfA&feature=user
THE MISSED CHANCE OF 1989 Part-1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isMsgIQK6Cg (as of 09-25 Pt2 has also been released)
1932 THE TRUE HISTORY OF THE USA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgcdRCWEt4Q&feature=user




Ever wondered how it is that with all these Harvard trained captains of industries, chiefs of finances from London School of Economics with multi PhDs , Uni. of Chicago's Free-Traders (shouldn't they be known as Free-Traitors by now ?) miracle workers (like the Chicago Boys of Chile's Pinochet's dictatorship ?), their NY-Times Thomas Friedmans , "The End of History" dogma of Francis Fukuyama (history ended in 1989 for Fukuyama and many others) Al Gore's environmentalism from hell, (WWF founder Prince Phillip said in his own words that if he could reincarnate, he'd love to be back as a virulent virus that hopefully would kill billions, so to help the earth deal with the unnecessary and very dangerous overpopulation problem ?) or like Bertrand Russel, who went from advocating the use of nuclear weapons and biological warfare to control and contain foreign distant populations to, when it was known the Soviets were developing their own nuke program, becoming THE face of pacifism, even credited as the inventor of the "Peace" sign ??... so many still defend him saying "Yes but he changed his views later " ! What ? Should we have given the Fuhrer a chance to repent ? like saying "Poor Hitler, he really thought it was for the good of all ??" ! Does he or Stalin look that bad compared to these greenies ? (the point I'm tryin to make is that environmenatlism for these ppl is a cover for arrested development and the conservation of resources. It always has been, since the Harriman's promotion of the eugenics movement. And btw, the story with Al Gore (incredibly researched and ongoing dossiers on Al Gore's story here !: http://www.larouchepub.com/eirtoc/site_packages/2007/al_gore.html ) is that all the while he won his Oscar and became an hero of that movement, he started a partnership with a British investment banker where he has huge financial stakes, that is bound to reap millions off this "carbon-swaps" business. For more info on carbon-swaps http://www.cecaust.com.au/pubs/online/artical3.html So all he's doing is making sure his City of London financial venture is gonna end up a successful !!) Another of the WWF founders, Prince Bernhard, was a member of the Nazi Party (from our godgiven trikypedia, please notice the very careful specifications and my underscores of the most ironic phrases : "the Sturmabteilung and a special branch of the SS called the "Reiter SS"- an equestrian sporting organisation. The Prince was not a Nazi by conviction; these memberships made life easier for an ambitious young man. People defending the Prince have stated that membership was necessary to be a student (!). The Prince later denied these well-documented memberships. Whatever the case, (ah trikypedia .."whatever the case" !) he was not politically active (ahaah ...he, the founder of the Bilderberg Group !) and although this German aristocrat was never a fierce champion of democracy, (eheeh ...trikypedia again !!!) there are no accounts of him ever having made fascist or anti-semitic remarks. (ahahaha !!)

so more and more ppl are (not so) fast realizing these incredible minds ( a-la Al Gore, Hitler & Co) are committin fraud upon frauds ? You think it's just an endless succession of individuals being individually corrupted by the lure of power and their ambitious characters ? or are u beginning to think maybe it is not a case of "systematic" corruption but a "systemic" issue ? meaning the problem is not in the persons being corrupted but in the system itself ? Cause if you watch those videos made by kids of max 25yrs of age (no, its not the ones from the "Loose Change" film !) from the Youth Movement of L.La Rouche (oh, i can picture your chins have dropped already, ehh ! I'm hearing it "you dupe, it's a "cult" stupid ! It was written in thousands of articles in the most respected daily newspapers, like the Wall Street Urinal, the NY-Times , the Washington Post, it must be true !!! La Rouche is a Nazi-Fascist, I read it in the papers, saw it on TV !!! You are crazy to listen to that crazy guy, he's a con man, was even convicted and put in federal prison ! ... Ok, that tells me you def. know a thing or two.....maybe three ??!! Actually, in a span of a few yrs, there were at least 1500 articles published on LLR and his movement, in newspapers in the US but also around the world. They were all very efficient and damaging to himself and his movement and they all said the same things. LLR, the cult leader, anti-semitic, fascist or Marxist cosnpiracy theorist who heads a movement of young students across America to try to brainwash the population with their subversive theories and defraud old ladies of their pension money to advance their political agendas......Damn'it I'm sorry but I'll try to give u a lowdown so then you can pretend you always knew !? The ol' crazy guy has been persona-non-grata in the mainstream of everything that is today's mainstream, since 1971 when he debated pubblicly a supporter of British Free-Trade economics; The magic in the market, the "invisible hand" theory, the "Private Vices for Public Benefits" concept of 18th century's Bernard Mandeville and his satanist accolades. When he debated eminent Keynesian economist Abba Lerner at Queens College in '71, LLR shrewdly drove him to basically out himself as a supporter of Nazi Economc Minister Hjalmar Schacht, who directed the German economy before Hitler, which then he also helped a great deal in consolidating his power. Schacht was a close friend of Bank of England Montagu Norman, not the staunchest "protector of the general welfare" concept of the pre-amble of the US Consitution . So that day in Queens, LLR had pubblicly won the debate against one of the leading economists of the era, but, as the philospher Sidney Hook witnessed and later commented, LLR had also guaranteed he will not ever be invited to discuss on serious economic or other issues. Never. Again. And LLR never got a degree ! On economics or else !

Then LR, through his network of investigative historians and reporters, commissioned a study and the publication of a book, which became the infamous "Dope Inc. : the book that drove Kissinger crazy" .. that book tells the history of the drug, arms and the real Murder Inc. backers by studying the background of some of the biggest financial institutions and corporations in our society.. by "following the money" they pretty much got the "dope on dope" + much more... after the book was translated in Spanish it caused a media storm in nations like Venezuela, where some of the dirtiest Wall Steet and City of London-linked banking families reside and which have a major involvement in holding the profits of the drug and weapons cartels. And that initiated a domino effect which brought Henry Kissinger to wield his rising influence in the US halls of gvmt to press for a suppression of the activities of that "dangerous" (yeah but for whom ??) La Rouche organization and publications. But in the trial set up in Boston, it looked as the jury was gonna call LR and his assoc. indicted for various crimes, not guilty of all charges. According to the Boston Herald of May 5, 1988, one of the jurors described the poll: "It seemed some of the government's people caused the problem, adding that the evidence showed that people working on behalf of the government 'may have been involved in some of this fraud to discredit the campaign.'" But a retrial was rescheduled with a move to another state and county, and the court they chose was one known as a "rocket docket", because it speeds even complicated cases without delay. LLR and many assoc. were sent to jail, some of them getting sentenced to 77yrs ! In jail LR spent time with disgraced televangelist Jim Bakker who later wrote of his astonishment at LaRouche's detailed knowledge of the Bible. According to Bakker, LaRouche also received a daily briefing each morning by phone, often in German. Bakker reports that on more than one occasion LaRouche had information days before it was reported on the network news. Bakker also writes that his cellmate was paranoid and convinced that their cell was bugged.

One of LaRouche's appeals attorneys was former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark. In a 1995 letter to then-Attorney General Janet Reno, he said that the case involved :

"a broader range of deliberate and systematic misconduct and abuse of power over a longer period of time in an effort to destroy a political movement and leader, than any other federal prosecution in my time or to my knowledge." (RAMSEY CLARK was not a friend or even sympathizer of LLR)

He asserted that :

"The government, ex parte, sought and received an order (Kissinger 's gone crazy !) effectively closing the doors of these publishing businesses, all of which were involved in First Amendment activities, effectively preventing the further repayment of their debts.".

LaRouche was released on parole in 1994 after serving 5 of his 15yrs sentence. Others in his movement, like Michael Billington, a South-Asian expert (who spent yrs in Indo-China being in as part of the Peace Corps), remained in jail a total of 10yrs for basically refusing to compromise and angering the judges.

AND NOW, AFTER THE BIG WOE ON WALL STREET, MR. PAULSON AND HIS Plunge.Protection.Team (more like a scheme) has put :
