Sunday Silly Song – 90 – Kylie Minogue ‎– The Loco-Motion (US 12″)

This was going to go into tomorrows Oz post but I could not bring myself to put it there but bring this 1988 release here, a proper Silly Sunday Song.

A synthpop cover of Little Eva’s classic rejuvenated by Phil Hammond. Sounding very Erasure in the backing too. The “Kohaku Mix” seems to be using a Dead Or Alive backing.

Kylie’s voice being bolstered by Dee Lewis, Mae McKenna, Suzanne Rhatigan and Mike Stock (!) Matt Aitken adds keyboards and guitar.

The elusive “Sankie Mix” speed everything up to HiNRG levels. Done by The Extra Beat Boys, a mixing duo for PWL, originally Jamie Bromfield & Boyowa ‘Yoyo’ Olugbo.

B-side is an album track featuring a bizarre, wobbly bass synth.

  1. Oh man, I remember when this came out. There were SO MANY cover tunes in 87 and 88 but this one was much more enjoyable than most of the others that came out. Thank you for this!

  2. Still trying to find out but unless it was a look alike I believe I went to school with her in Oz. Camberwell High with Uniform Clothes. Early 80’s. Remember speaking or hanging out with her and her friend christina. Still researching……

    1. Thanks Mate! 😁 I do want to thank you very much for the Razormaid Issues and Djjedredy for posting them when time permits. At least you (Musicus) were finally able to get them. 👏👍😃

  3. The least I could do after all you have shared. They are from the digital library though, and not CD-rs per se, as djjedredy wrote, but should be exactly the same. Just to let you know. And still waiting anxiously for the results of your investigations regarding schollgirl Kylie 😀
