Darondo - for people who love to funk

Straight from Ubiquity records - The new-old sounding urban-funk-soul record of Darondo is simply, something to reckon with. Let My People Go has got elements of Al Green, Sam & Dave, and this early soul groove that normally sounds generic to me and done. This is the real deal. If you love "If you want me to stay" by p-Funk, and early James Brown, grab the first few tracks from emusic and put them in a mix along side the other greats and you are in like flin. If you dig the world urban-music thing you should also swing by on Wednesdays to Fuel friends. She posts this type of stuff about once a week -- plus a bunch of other treats and recently a hilarious Jeff Tweedy SF Amoeba record store story. For those on the East Coast who have only heard of Amoeba records think of it as a close 2nd to the Princeton Record Exchange snobbery experience, which for the most part 'wears' away once you realize they are only like that because (A)they care and (B) some have worked there forever. I do have a Amoeba-T so I actually have sympathy for most music store clerks and vowed never to do. It's much more fun to torture them and ask them stupid questions, but honesly having been shopping at these type of places for so long; I'm either friends with them or have learned to put the mask on and throw the attitude right back, it's only thing they respect. ~Your sociological music pimp.

incomplete nj punk band list

I know Jack Monohan of Brighton Bar infamy, Jack Rabid of The Big Takerover and Jim Testa of Jersey Beat could probably write the enclopedia of NJ/Hardcore/punnk bands from the 80's. The wiki early N.J. hardcore list is decent, which currently includes one of my faves D.U.H., which i have the cassette of and I'll burn some classic cuts so I can play on the DJ Spork presents: show. The list discludes a bunch but includes some of Monahan's(estimated age 54) shorecore scene bands. Like Fatal rage fromMutha records, The Heat blast Kids, and every other damn kid on the block. I was in a couple of those central jersey ones (Psychic Fair & The Leisure Set) that hosted Monahan's band at the First Unitarian Church of Plainfield. Dumb kids who just distributed tapes like everybody else to our friends. I posted some mp3s in my discography archive. But do not fret, as all good worldly punkers know you can always tune in Thursdays to Pat Duncan's punk show on wfmu to get fresh taste of what seems like yesterday.
