Rudimentary Peni - Cacophony LP

Chris & Cosey - Exotika

Since Sab started guesting here & Zer0 has interweb again, I have felt a great burden lifted from my shoulders (said with tongue firmly planted in cheek). Now the only pressure on me is my own self-imposed ‘A to Z’ shite. Well, I posted up a couple things that came to mind from one of Sab’s posts & before I get back on the letter trail, here are a couple for ALTCERF who was nice enough to comment on the last Chris & Cosey entry. Then I might post another Bush Tetras slab before going to ‘O’, because the last one has been getting hit hard & not one comment, so...

This one was recorded at Studio 47, Norfolk, England, U.K. It features Chris Carter & Cosey Fanni Tutti, of course. The album states, “SOME SOUNDS ON THIS ALBUM ARE AT A SUBCONSCIOUS LEVEL”.

VA - Sitar Beat! Indian Style Heavy Funk Vol. 2

Following the success of the first Sitar Beat compilation CD, a collection of Indian and Indian-inspried European funky selections from the 60s and 70s, the crew knew they had to come deep for the sequel. So for Volume 2, they go straight to heart of India with some of the rarest, and best tracks recorded between the years of 1970 and 1984. Nearly all of these tracks are appearing on CD for the first time. Sixteen tracks of rare and funky Indian flavor, blending heavy beats with the sounds of the sitar and the inimitable vocal sounds of beloved Indian singers such as the ubiquitous Asha Bhosle and producers/songwriters like Kalyanji Ananji and R. D. Burman. Most of the tracks are culled from Bollywood sound tracks from the 70s and early 80s. Enormously popular, often wild and packed with action and romance, these films put the intense music of star composers like Burman and Kalyanji & Anandji at the forefront. The strange, psychedelic sounds possess their own cultural mish-mash of flavors combining traditional Indian instrumentation and melodies with film music s intensity, and incorporating styles from American/Western music from about 5 years or so behind the trend. Funk, psychedelic rock, disco and proto-electro jump out from the grooves of Sitar Beat Volume 2 and hit you harder than a mouth full of spicy masala. This is soul from the Sub-continent at it's best.

Track List:
1. Babla And His Orchestra - The Witness
2. Kalyanji Anandji Ft. Asha Bhosle - Awara Sadiyon Se
3. S.D. Narang - Everybody Dance With Me
4. Kalyanji Anandji Ft. Lata Mangeshkar And Mohd Rafi -

VA - Sitar Beat! Indian Style Heavy Funk Vol. 1

The Sitar Beat series was built with the DJ in mind - collecting some of the wildest, heaviest and most psychedelic Indian Funk recorded and presenting it loud on wax, ready for the turntable. Now, due to popular demand, we’re collecting the heaviest cuts from this vinyl series and presenting them on a limited edition CD. The first four volumes were lessons in just how ahead of their time India’s Bollywood composers were in the 60s, 70s and early 80s. They dug into Indian deep funk and psycho-psychedelic masterpieces recorded for the Bollywood film industry. Alongside full length killers like the funkiest track from the rare “Qurbani” soundtrack, there were Bollywood funk fiestas by acclaimed composers such as Kalanji Ananji and R.D. Burman, with extended breakbeats and re-edits that upped the funk to the boiling point. Together with Ravi’s nephew Ananda Shankhar’s instrumental Sitar freak outs were diva Asha Boshle’s soulful wailings. Culling its music from rare vinyl and utilizing tasteful restoration and remastering, Sitar Beat was the first time that many of these songs are heard by the record-buying public - at least in this form. Edits remove any bobbing and weaving, leaving funk that only flies straight ahead!

Track List:
1. Klaus Doldinger - Sitar Beat
2. Klaus Doldinger - Sitar (Bonus) Beats
