The Walkers :: Van Nuys Blvd. 10pm


Not a particularly difficult record to track down even if on an indy Gucci pressing, I've liked this record a lot since acquiring it in a trade from High C over at Rehash and always thought it was a bit underrated. It's got a vibe that I envision would have been a big Idjut Boys type record with heavy emphasis on the bass and a mid-tempo BPM with a few changes mixed in. Get a copy before someone blows this thing up. The 2 cuts on the other side aren't terribly interesting.

Bob Chance :: It's Broken!




Somewhere along the way this lounge disco LP takes on a life of it's own, and probably by accident 2 really hot cuts emerge from the usual fodder that encompasses most lounge records. It's Broken spans 9:30+ and you'll have to endure Bob's vocal's a bit but the last half of the song is like a white man's lounge-y Peter Brown/Patrick Adams P&P production. Jungle Talk is just a mid tempo dirty synth jungle instrumental head trip at 5+ minutes but needs an inclusion. A couple of more LPs on the label exist and I've got the one by Tony Rizzi but it doesn't come close to this.
