el ritmo – soledad miranda tribute night

img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-512″ title=”soledad el ritmo” src=”” alt=”soledad el ritmo” width=”420″ height=”325″ />Its that time again – the aural equivalent of staring into the eyes of Soledad Miranda for two hours or gazing from the bar in a crazy little nightclub where she will dance later on. Well actually its just the usual show format . Take your seat for deep sixties and seventies Brazil sounds, Italian bossa, moviegrooves electronica and Euro-lounge vibes – and a special Deluxe Claude Mono Vampyros Lesbos extended mega-mix. Jess Franco would love it…

stare at Soldad while she stares at you …
This show also sees some nice work from obscure 80s french pop icons Antena

I love it when these crazy things work. This could be as strange and as beautiful as the Nick Drake vs Marvin Gaye mashup I posted a while ago – I added an intro with the famous dialogue from The Wild Angels and a little dubby background beat – wish I could remember where I found the actual mashed Four Tops track

Beautiful buildings Perth has lost – a photo history on Facebook – amazing photos of  the great city before it was destroyed

If they had not demolished Boans I could have gone in there to buy a hat to wear this weekend…

Boans 1950s hats

before after-work  (or perhaps just later-afternoon) cocktails at the Savoy…

savoy hotel cocktails

and then off to dinner at the Embassy Ballroom Dining Room…

I have decided that it is definitely time to re-watch all five of the original Planet of The Apes movies in the correct sequence – to get me in the mood I made this Jerry Goldsmith vs. Palmskin Productions DIY Mono Mashup – enjoy…

Check out this lo-fi but intense animation…

Check out this stylish live interpretation….
