We are seriously thinking of starting a “This is going straight to the poolroom” segment for the show. Straight in at number one is this gem of an ad from 1976…
Fraserhead on duty today, starting off with a sneaky threesome off the new Soulwax album “From Deewee”, there’s some dark synth action from ÉLAN VITAL and PILOOSKI, we delve into soothing, thudding techno from JASSS, LIZA AIKIN, and HØF, plus beats and atmospherics galore from $HIT and $HINE, SKYMNING, BAILTER SPACE, AUDIOPHYSICAL, JOE JACKSON, and MR AMISH, to name but a few.
It started as an earworm. That 1987 Kylie Minogue hit “I Heard A Rumour”. Except it wasn’t. It was Bananarama. So down the rabbit hole we went to listen to Bananarama hits and that’s how we stumbled across Michael Fortunati and his 1986 hit “Give Me Up”.
WHY. DID. WE. NOT. KNOW. ABOUT. THIS?
It’s Italo Disco Euro Beat keytar gold.
You can even smell the Kouros.
