The Show: How Stock, Aitken & Waterman Wrote “Buffalo Stance”

In all the years we’ve been listening to “Buffalo Stance” we never knew it’s genesis was in a 1987 SAW production for Morgan McVey called “Looking Good Diving”.  Things come more into focus with the “Diving With The Wild Bunch” remix on the 12″, featuring Neneh Cherry herself. It’s no great secret, it’s been blogged about numerous times. Possibly, probably, we don’t pay enough attention. However, the story is now impossible to escape in light of the slew of re-releases of “Raw Like Sushi” on it’s 30th anniversary.

And on with the show…

The Show: The people I have met are not as pretty as they seem…

No, the blog title doesn’t refer to that handsome and clever linguist Lawrence Arabia chap above, but instead is a line from Ella Chau Yin Chi aka French_concession’s new single End of Time (and more about that down below).

Not too long ago Mr Arabia got into a bit of bother when, as a former resident who visits Christchurch occasionally post-earthquakes, he commented on the blandness of the new city centre. We however think he would be a good town crier for Ōtautahi.

James Dann sums up the silly response nicely in his Same As It Ever Was post here.

Anyway, playing Lawrence Arabia’s 2012 track “The 03” seemed like the perfect way to kick off the show today.

I’m going back to the 03
To see the places where I used to be
Getting punched on High Street mall
Getting drunk at the college ball


As promised, coming back to French_concession, here’s the video for the new single End of Time
