Norman Whitfield

Swedish radio show "klingan" had a show on Norman Whitfield yesterday. It's an interview from 1980 and you can listen to it here: LISTEN

Vi hör min intervju från 1980 med den legendariska amerikanska soulproducenten och kompositören Norman Whitfield som gått ur tiden. Han är mannen bakom massor av hits på skivbolaget Motown, bl.a. ”I heard it through the grapevine” med Marvin Gaye, ”Papa was a rollin’ stone” med The Temptations och ”War” med Edwin Starr. Whitfields specialitet var också att verkligen använda hela studion som ett jättelikt instrument. Han skapade stora, rörliga ljud och musik-collage. Det blir som breda cinemascope-bilder hemma i våra högtalare. Jag jämför honom med indiska A R Rahman som i grunden förändrat indisk filmmusik lika mycket som Whitfield förändrade soulmusikens utveckling. Vi hör också musik från Brasilien, USA, Pakistan, Ryssland, Tyskland, Colombia, Etiopien och Turkiet.

Dillinger - L.S.D

Sorry for the few post over the last days. I've been in stockholm buying records. Very nice indeed. So today we have some brand new stuff for you to listen to.

Fist up is Dillinger with the track LSD. Nice reggea disco stuff. This really get me going.

I need some LSD, I need it to be free!

Balearic mess

OJ Oj oj...

Found out recently that U2 can be quite good without Bono singing and on the wrong speed. How you may ask..? I learned the hard way. At first I played this on the right speed... Besides... this way Bono can be out saving the world, and the other guys can make music. Win win situation, så att säga...

U2 - Boomerang 1 (instrumental) 33 & 1/3 + 8 %

Nick Mason - Wervin'

Taken from the album "The fictitious sports" where you can also find the classic wrong speed track SIAM. This one is more of a silent movie disco track mixed with some post punk... I like a lot. Especially the piano!

Another hero dead

Next soul legend in line is Norman Whitfield who passed away yesterday. Sad. One of the greatest song writers. I love his loooong long songs from the 70's. Great stuff!

Cute pussy falling asleap

Thank god it's friday!

Nurnberg 47 - Hundarna brinner

I had this track up a long time ago in a youtube clip but since it's such a nice track i suggest we put it up again as a download. This track is taken from the soundtrack to the swedish cult movie "G - för gemenskap" and the band is acctually called Reeperbahn. In the film they are suposed to be a nazi band, therefore the Nurnberg name. Although, nothing happened in Nurnberg 1947, it happened 1945-46.

Leisure process - Anxiety

Oh this anxiety... I'm a bit pissed off today. Didn't get a job I really wanted so to I thought this was a suitable track... Produced by Martin Ruschent. Great track, kind of cheesy sax solo that I should have skipped if I was Ruschent... but never mind, sometimes you need that cheese to appreciate the rest.

Morgan Geist interview

From the latest FACT mag, here's an interview with Morgan Geist of Metro Area. He talks about his latest album and some other stuff...

This week sees the release of Double Night Time, the terrific new album by Morgan Geist. It's the New York-based producer's first solo LP in over a decade, his attentions having been focussed on running Environ Records, home to Kelley Polar and Metro Area, the acclaimed production duo Darshan Jesrani and Geist himself. Featuring vocals by Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan, Double Night Time finds Geist exploring traditional song-form as well as the deep electronic textures with which he made his name.

FACT caught up with this modern-day disco innovator in Queens late last month. Here's what he had to say for himself...
