CAN- Halleluwah vs. DSCHINGHIS KAHN- Dschinghis Kahn

I haven't been posting many individual singles as of late, but I just felt the need to demonstrate how much West Germany in the 70's was a hell of a drug...

This Can single I have been hoisting high above my head since I found it at the Platten Pedro record store in Berlin (prices are high, but plenty o' raritease). Not much needs to be said here about "Halleluwah" except that once again any Can purists will be disappointed by the truncation of the edit (not to mention the mix), but goddamnit! The fact that this exists makes me happy to be alive! "Turtles Have Short Legs", a non-album track is also quite amazing, though I agree it would stick out on Tago Mago. Here is a good review from Head Heritage.

Can- "Halleluwah"

Can- "Turtles Have Short Legs"

Then, well there is Dschinghis Khan.

It doesn't get better than this video from the Eurovision Contest (4th place!!!) in 1979::>

Could have said it better myself. Their song "Moskau" was even an international hit, but believe me neither song hits no matter how ironically themed the night is. Better play it for disapproving friends while dancing wildly in yr living room late one night after the bars close.

Dschinghis Khan- "Dschinghis Khan"

Bounty! And by bounty I am in a very vague way talking about a young child's dream of becoming something of a brilliant star. A star so bright that it blinds most, and gives others intense headaches. Featured here is my very first 7" single, originally given to me by Little A during lunch in high school. It was subsequently stolen and sold, and though I have looked diligently in the D section of every hip record store I encounter, alas, I could only find it on ebay. This then sparked a stream of seamingly unnecessary compulsive shopping on and off line, whereby I could acquire fancier (like this bizarre french Fela edit--I know some records should not be put onto single, but you can't blame me for coveting them, right?) and more "post punky" shuck an groove records to sparkle away the hours of DJ-dom. I never knew it was so easy. I dreamed of a world where I could own Nervous Norvus' "The Fang", and now that it's here next to me as I write this endless tome of an introduction, I would like to give thanks and praises to the record gods who have been shining on little ol' me as of late.

MUGGLESTONE HI-FI Sum of 11 vol. 3

This last mix is probably my fav of the bunch because it played itself. I picked up a few Sega records from Mauritus (islands of Madagascar where the rich French come to sun) that blew my mind and sowed them with some dust that I found at Backtrack Records in Lincoln when I was there to see my cousin wed in the local Masonic Temple.

This mix started as a tribute to all the songs that are a bit too "anthemic" for their own good, even though when taken in doses can make or break a nostalgia fueled dance party.

MUGGLESTONE HI-FI Sum of 11 vol. 1

When in doubt (and I mean self-doubt), overcompensate. That's what the country preacher has to say about it. So here you get not 1, not 2, but rather 3 new mixes to mow the lawn to. For this first volume I didn't really want to break any rules of the game for the summer of 2011, just showcase some of the finest southern funk and proto-rock classics. Doesn't that sound nice? There are plenty of classix as well as the elusive rare groove or two to keep the pop police at bay, and of course some nice whitey go black blues rock that we've grown to love.

Track Listing::>

01. The Meters- Hand Clapping Song
02. Sandy Nelson- Drum Stomp
03. Jo Ann & Troy- Who Do You Love?
04. The Animals- Boom Boom
05. The Twistin' Kings- Congo Pt. 1
06. Chuck Berry- Hey Pedro
07. Eddie Bo- Hook n Sling Pt. 2
08. The Novas- The Crusher
09. The Who- Dogs Pt. 2
10. The Fantastic Epics- Fun and Funk Pt. 3
11. Caetano Veloso- Não Identificado
12. The Shadows- Apache
13. Hugh Masekela- Riot
14. Mickey and the Soul Generation- Iron Leg
15. The Blackbyrds- Do it, Fluid
16. The Byrds- Leavin' Here
17. Them- Mystic Eyes
18. The Rolling Stones- Not Fade Away
