DJ

"Is that a Tointable?" "Get on it." "It's Your Turn"

That would be dope! Please do this, uptown!

I would love to, homeboy.....but I got one for spinning (show and tell), and the second one I'm not even taking out of the plastic - it'll probably go in a frame and on a wall.

My bad.




peace.

Recently...


James and Bobby Purify - I'm Your Puppet / So Many Reasons 7" (Bell Records) 1966



^How many of these classics are you missing? You know they are classic, you know you want em, you see them from time to time and say, "Ah, I gottta get that next time, I really need that." This is one of those for me. Heard it hundreds of times, always loved it, never got around to grabbing it, but finally I found it locally for 2 bucks and I couldn't pass it up again. Little did I know that the B side is actually a nice mellow sweet soul song, because no one ever talks about the B side on that 7".



Tom Tom Club - Genius Of Love \ Lorelei (Instrumental) 7" (Sire) 1981



^Again with the commentary of "shoulda gotten it sooner, but here it is" Besides it's value as a stand alone great hit track from the Talking Head's side project Tom Tom Club, it's sampling value is unarguably important so I had to have this. The B side is forgettable.



Tra-Cee - You're Just A Mama's Boy \ Instrumental 7" (Simco Records) Unknown Year



^Staying with the 80s, this is some freestyle like 80s funk diss song that is beyond groovy. It's pretty obscure too, I was lucky finding this. You'd be able to fill up a dance floor at any club with this song. What chick wouldn't wanna sing along to the lyrics of a pissed off ex girlfriend singing "Your just a mama's boy, you always were my toy!" I love this track and I gotta find an excuse to put this on a mix sometime.



Tony Ozier - The Funk / Back To The Mitten 7" (Cherries Records) 2012



^Slowly but surely I'm gonna try to find all these 80s styled modern club songs from Chicago's underground 7" label entitled Cherries. Each is highly limited, and every single song is like it came from the 80s even though it was released post 2010. They literally reached out to the 80s, came back with the vintage funk sound perfectly, and pressed in on 7 just for guys like me who can't get enough of that throwback vibe.



Jawws - Jawws 7" EP (So So Real) 2014



^A just in time for Christmas Christmas present from my man JB. I told him not to get me anything but he knows my weakness for collecting regional punk so he scooped me up this self-produced Nashville punk 7" from their bandcamp page and had it shipped to me unbeknownst to me. This is the real shit. These kids are kids, but they really get it. They got the whole fuck-it youthful punk sound down pat. It's cool to get shit like this from the artists themselves, that is definitely true punk. A nice surprise JB and much appreciated. thumbs up



The Electric Eels - Spin Age Blasters / Bunnies 7" (Superior Viaduct) 2014 RE of 1981 OG



^Bought it based on a review. Kinda wished I hadn't. It's not bad, it's weird, and normally I like weird stuff, but I'm wondering if this is just weird for the sake of being weird. I'm predicting that I'll listen to it one or maybe 2 more times and then it'll get lost in the rest of my rock 7s until I run out of space and am forced to sell it after a third forced listen.



(Counter clockwise) Faith No More - Motherfucker \ Motherfucker Remix 7" (Reclamation Recordings) Walter Trout / John Mayall ‎– Willie / World Gone Crazy 7" (Provogue) Against Me! ‎– Laura Jane Grace & Atom Willard - The Daytrotter Sessions 7" (Total Treble) 2014



^I'll run down every single record I purchased on Record Store Day Black Friday 2014 really quick. They were all 7" records, I didn't care for anything else 12" sized I saw that day.

Starting with FNM, I love that band, but I hate this song. Why even bother putting a remix of a bad song on the flip especially when the remix is worse? That Mayall\Trout 7" I bought specifically for Mayall, one of my favorite blues musicians of all time, and the undisputed king of British Blues, but I'm keeping it for the Walter Trout song, the surprising winner out of the entire batch of 7"s. That one song, a dope blues song, is the only good song out of all that money I spent. It's a keeper. Now for Against Me!... I bought it cuz it's a punk single and I'm trying to learn about the genre. It was kind of pushed on me by my local rock guy cuz he knows I look for that stuff, but it's just weak-tit music. Punk my ass! Ok it's kinda punk, but it's not good at all, it feels like filler to me. Ever drink a diet cola and feel full? Yep, it's that kind of filler.


Unrelated Rant: soap box rant (feel free to bipass if you just came for the sevens)

RSD seems to be getting worse all the time. I'm convinced soon it will become a caricature of itself and cause the opposite reverse reaction it is partly responsible for have started, the great vinyl record boom of the 20teens. I've seen the proposed list for what's coming up next in a few months and the Lego Movie is on that list. I'm not kidding, the fucking Lego movie. Since the Frozen soundtrack was on Black Friday, let's give the kids the Lego Movie for 4-20. Yeah, that'll work. They aren't stupid, they know it'll work.((TD))

Mark my words, little kids with no records or players will buy a $50 Crosley Cruiser and that soundtrack from the same record store with their babysitting money on 4/20 and they'll be ready to post it on reddit vinyl with huge bells on and then their joy will fizzle as the Crosley crushers punch teenage newb happiness in the face. drinking smiley

I'm jealous over that James and Bobby Purify joint . Love I'm Your Puppet !!! I been wearing out that jaws 7 too . I'm glad you dig it . I listened to that FNM song . Not a fan either . They still had some good stuff , but I lost interest after Angel Dust . As for Against Me! , their first album was really good . It was all acoustic and all though it had soft touches , and was still a rock album ( basically ) it was still punk to the core . Everything after that has just been crappy rock music . I did see them years ago at a shitty club in Murfreesboro , TN , and they were great the breakers kept tripping , so they pulled out acoustic guitars and played their entire first album . That's how I like to remember them . I haven't heard anything by them since the lead singer made the switch from man to woman , but I'm guessing they didn't change much .
This is their album I always liked ..

"Is that a Tointable?" "Get on it." "It's Your Turn"

HERE is a quick video of what that would sound and look like ...
