Hava Nagila !

Hey folks, some shameless promotion again ! Speaking of Dick Dale/Meshugga Beach Party/and a thousand different covers, here's my humble contribution to Hava Nagila ! I had so much fun recording the track (in 20 minutes), I'm just not sure the neighbours enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks to that fine bottle of Bordeaux by the way. Oh go on, play it loud, dance naked in your living room, dowload it and spread the good word hahaha ! ENJOY !!!! Rev. Tom Frost : * Hava Nagila ! * Thanx Guillaume ! See you on thursday for a mix !

Gary U.S. Bonds !

Born Gary Anderson in Jacksonville, Florida in 1939 , Gary U.S. Bonds moved at a young age to Norfolk, Virginia, where he sang in the Church choir, and with a group called The Turks. He joined record producer Frank Guida's small Legrand record label and Guida changed Andersons name to U.S. Bonds in hope that it would be confused with a public service announcement advertising the sale of government bonds and thus get more airplay. His hits had an infectious joyfulness and a unique sound: some have described them as seeming to have been recorded under water ! In the early 80's, rock superstar/Gary U. S. Bonds-fan Bruce Springsteen began to use Quarter To Three as his encore when he performed in live concerts. Together with rocker Miami Steve Van Zandt (sorry, Sylvio), Springsteen helped to revive Bonds' career ! Meanwhile, Gary U. S. Bonds continues to this day to be what he does best, a bloody bloody bloody great r&b singer !! Gary U. S. Bonds : * Coconut Woman * * Min

Prince La La !

Prince La La born Lawrence Nelson (1936 - 1963) was born into a family rooted in the rich musical tradition of New Orleans. His father, Walter Nelson, was a noted jazz and R&B guitarist who played with R&B pioneer Smiley Lewis. His elder brother, Walter "Papoose" Nelson Jr., played extensively in the 50s and early 60s with Fats Domino and Professor Longhair, and was a featured session guitarist for seminal New Orleans bandlander and producer Dave Bartholomew. A.F.O.'s publicity photos featured Lawrence in an eccentric yet regal costume drawn from both African and Mardi Gras traditions, and his otherworldly persona deeply impacted up-and-coming New Orleans musician Mac Rebennack, who borrowed much of La La's image in creating his own "Dr. John, the Night Tripper" guise. Nelson suffering a drug overdose in 1963, he was 27. It's notable that earlier the previous year, on the 28th February, 1962, Lawrence's brother Papoose died aged 31 in New Yor


Breaking news. For fucks sake, we all knew he was sick, but I’m sad to hear that my idol Bo Diddley passed away today. The Originator is gone. Is there a God somewhere ? Here's a short bio for those who still live, actually hear, in the dark. Born in McComb, Mississippi, he was adopted and raised by his mother's cousin, Gussie McDaniel, whose surname he adopted, becoming Ellas McDaniel. The family moved to Chicago when he was seven.He took violin lessons as a youth, but was inspired to become a guitarist after seeing John Lee Hooker. He worked as a carpenter and mechanic, but also began a musical career playing on street corners with friends, including Jerome Green(c. 1934–1973),as a band called the Hipsters (later the Langley Avenue Jive Cats). In 1951, he landed a regular spot at the 708 Club on Chicago's South Side, with a repertoire influenced by Louis Jordan, John Lee Hooker, and Muddy Waters. He adopted the stage name, Bo Diddley, which is probably a southern black sl

Emile Ford !

He was born Emile Sweetman in Castries, St. Lucia in the West Indies and grew up in (Funky) Nassau. Emile came to England in the mid-1950's with the hope of becoming a sound engineer, and his knowledge in that field contributed directly to his subsequent success fronting a band. Changing his name to Emile Ford, he put together a combo called the Checkmates, whose members included his two half-brothers, George Sweetman and Dave Sweetman, on sax and bass, respectively, along with Ken Street, Pete Carter, Les Hart, Alan Hawkshaw, and John Cuffley. As Emile Ford & The Checkmates, they won a talent contest sponsored by Pye Records and were awarded an audition and a contract that resulted in their first single, "Don't Tell Me Your Troubles" b/w "What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For", which was produced by the legendary Joe Meek. The truth is that Ford wasn't really a very good singer (well, who really can tell who’s a good or bad singer ? No wait,
