The Show: Over 40 Years Of Sleng Teng

And it only seems like yesterday we were busting out our Casiotone’s and aping Wayne Smith’s 1985 classic. The hard work had pretty much been done 3 or 4 years earlier when one of Okuda Hiroko’s preset rhythm patterns ( called “Rock”, would you believe?) was included on the MT-40 keyboard.

For an oral history of Sleng Teng have a listen to The Blessed Madonna on BBC Radio 6 and we salute the rhythm by including Shinehead’s “Know How Fe Chat” on today’s show…

We wanted stupid entertainment, baby, we asked for it

Amongst other things, Fraserhead plays the beats (from the likes of BOLIS PUPUL, ALEXIS LE-FAN, SKYMNING, BORROWED CS), the beatless (courtesy of SARAH DAVACHI, BLACK MERLIN, and JAPAN BLUES), plus some proggy psych rock from Cologne trio MOUTH.

There’s even some telephone calls via PILOOSKI’s mix for the LEMAIRE men fall/winter 2018 show. Right up our alley. Have a listen below for the full, voyeuristic effect…
