Come to the Eastern Bloc….The el ritmo Eastern Block Party is on again on Tuesday night at Victor’s flat above RTRFM. Bring vodka and perhaps some jazz and funk records. DJ Claude will be bringing the new hi fi system he got in the West. Check out some of his new grooves at his blog post. Tell everyone to make sure they get there as with the new state restrictions and the clampdown on kooky music there is unlikely to be a re-stream…there may be some cassettes…be warned there is hi-fi and lo-fi…

The New Dance Show. The Scene and more…

Part 2 of 2

Forget the Soul Train Dance Line….check out the 1983 ‘Men’s Dance Line’ from The Scene…

 

The New Dance Show was a television series from Detroit, Michigan developed as a spin-off of to the more well known The Scene, which ran from October 1975 to December 1987. The New Dance Show debuted in November 1988, the first show was recorded at Reggie’s Moulin Rouge club in Detroit. True fans of the New Dance Show will already be aware of the amazing show archive on the Caprice87 YouTube Channel and some amazing footage over at the Nat Morris  YouTube Channel

Another great dance show foled in a club was the House Countdown from Chicago. It was filmed at the Rivera Nightclub circa 1990. Check out the House Countdown Dancers and a performance by Joe Smooth.

Also check out Part 1 which explores UK TV dance troupes such as Pan’s People and Hot Gossip



Exploring Pan’s People, Legs & Co, Hot Gossip etc

Part 1  of  2

This week I have been exploring the supposedly non-funky dance routines of the various Top of the Pops dance troupes. You know the ones: Pan’s People, Ruby Flipper, Legs and Co etc. Of course the TOTP dancers should never (ever) be confused with the legendary Arlene Phillips dance troupe Hot Gossip made famous through their appearances on The Kenny Everett Show. They were always more ‘cult’, as before being spotted by the producers of the Kenny Everett Show on a drunken night in Soho, Hot Gossip spent two years performing at a club in Jermyn Street. With TOTP having been on the BBC there is lots and lots of footage around but unfortunately watching most of it is just hard work with so so dance moves, meh costuming and not so good tracks actually danced to – BUT being the crate digger I have been doing some serious digging for you to find the rare gold – I also got a bit side-tracked and went looking at the sub-genre of ‘TOTP dancer footage re-used and re-mixed’ as there is also true buried treasure to be found there – shall I just say Trentemoller …enjoy…

In Part 2 join me as we explore the incredible funky dancers of Detroit’s New Dance Show, The Scene, House Countdown and some other US funky dance shows



DJ – Mind-Warp Pavilion Mixtape

I have been busy this week curating music as will be DJing between the bands at the Mind-Warp Pavilion on Sat Jan 7. Its a celebration of the life and times of David Bowie on the eve of what would have been his 70th birthday. Its also a special night for local music as the live line-up features an incredible diversity of performers (like about 40 individual musos and vocalists for starters!!!) working with an amazing setlist reflecting a life of ‘sound and vision’.

While sorting through music I created this little mixtape – its full of obscurities, a few classics, some crazy collaborations and remixes, reversed tracks and other audio ephemera. Its definitely not a ‘hits mix’ and of course we will be playing all the classics on the night –  this is more a little personal celebration. Have a listen and I hope you enjoy it – but more importantly get your tix sorted and your friends together and come along and  join some of Perth’s best musicians playing ‘live and real’ as that is the way music should be played at this very special party…
