Roger Daltrey ‎– Take Me Home (US 12″)

Phil Harding remixes this track from 1987, giving it a Sly Fox feel to it. All synth backing, horn section, (arranged by Richard Niles – who had worked with loads of bands including FGTH, Pet Shop Boys, Was Not Was) rock vocals and a little bit of guitar. You would not think it was The Who’s legendary front man apart from THAT voice, it just isn’t his style and the video looks like he is doing a Robert Palmer. Apparently it is a cover of French song, “Cargo De Nuit” originally done by Axel Bauer.

It only got a very limited 12″ release in America and was the last track on the album “Can’t Wait To See The Movie.”

A fine dub disguises the fact that Daltrey was never involved ! (Great Horns and I think Gary Barnacle was involved!)

Kraftwerk With Disco Balls!

Essential for any Lockdown Disco! It’s the first single from the forthcoming album “J3”


You can get it here! (just an English quid to buy!)

Kim Wilde ‎– Go For It (US 12″)

Or “The Second Time” as it was called on all the other releases. From 1985 and Kim and the gang (her brother) get their hands on some samplers.

Lighter and more electronic (almost Hi NRG) this contains an extended Dub – plenty of synths on here 🙂 Almost Freestyle with all edits!

It just that bloody stuttering ! “Go GGGGooo Go GGGGGo” – clubbers must have loved that back then!

Captain Sensible ‎– Revolution Now (12″)

Quite apt after Cummings gets let off.

From the album of the same name that came out 2 years after! This track emerged in June 1987 with more than a nod to Teardrop Explodes and a feel of Sigue Sigue Sputnik. Produced by The Flowerpot Men (Adam Peters and Ben Watkins) and remixed by Phil Bodger it features Jackie Challenor, Lorenza Johnson and Mae McKenna, The Soultanas on backing. His label (A&M) dropped him soon after.

A bit of a rock opera on the B-side. Weighing in at over 15 minutes it features his son and wife on backing vocals as well as Damned member Henry Badowski. A montage of different songs and musical styles.

From Wiki

“co-written with former bandmate Henry Badowski during a visit to Sensible’s home in December 1986. Badowski: “He was in the process of putting together a mini rock opera and I was given a bottle of whiskey and a pen and paper and was ordered to write the words to a bunch of tunes he’d written.”

DMC – Various ‎– September 90 – Mixes 2 (Vinyl LP)

A bit of a cheat but it does have 3 letters in it!

As the title says early 90’s Dance stuff from the subscription only DMC label and a variety of artists get the DMC treatment.

Shawn Christopher provides the vocals on the opening track. Classic House with a great breakdown.

Deskee provides some Hip House with Tony Humphries remixing and Tuta Aquino on the edits. Another Classic!

La Vie En Rose” is given a some chilled beats by Sanny X to compliment the Grace Jones vocal (and also the panting at the end!)

The best remix is Lindy Layton’s “Silly Games” by Michael Gray (one half of Full Intention) Quicker and harder but still with the lush strings.

Now on to “Confusion” (mmmm!) It is shorter and it’s done by Dimitri From Paris. It takes the sequencers but puts a House Beat over it. Jury is out for me on this.

The short (but effective) Indie mix (by Brian Butler) blends the Big Hitter’s of the year but it is far too short.

DNA ‎– La Serenissima (12″)

Not on here but ripped a while back!

From 1990 and the theme from BBC’s “Hospital Watch” given some House Beats by British duo Nick Batt and Neal Slateford. they went on work with Suzanne Vega’s on “Tom’s Diner”

A detailed list of samples, a classical one from Rondo’ Veneziano – La Serenissima,
samples a vocal from Jungle Brothers – I’ll House You. Drum parts from Lyn Collins – Think and shouts “Woo” “Yeah” sampled from Toots & the Maytals – 54-46 Was My Number.

No orchestra on the B-side just the backing track.

LFO ‎– LFO (12″)

Done it! Low Frequency Oscillations from July 1990.

(And I didn’t know it was £20 + on Discogs!)

The Bass Bin Ripper itself! Sub – Bass to die for! From Leeds duo Mark Bell (R.I.P.) and Gez Varley introduced Bleep Techno to the masses.

I remember having their album on tape!(Now worth £12+ but only to the right buyer)

The Detroit Techno beats and Space strings can be heard on the less deep “Probe”

Track 3’s “Track 4” is similarly space-ious and hypnotic.

Now need to dig out the scary and aggressive “We Are Back”
