Another long lost gem that I stumbled onto at the magnificent Fantod Under Glass blog – do go there, you won't regret it. I bought this the day it was released in 1984 (I think) and have loved it since. My vinyl has long since become too wrecked to play as it was a party fave for a long time and now wears it’s battle-scars with pride, and my cassette copy is wearing out. If anyone knows of a good copy at a sexy bitrate please let me know…
Heavy Duty Breaks (Illuminated Megamix) – DJ Youth and Evil Eddie
A superb compilation for y’all, and I do apologise if I am getting stuck in an early 80s rut of late but senility is setting in and as I enter my dotage I find myself travelling back in time to slimmer, less grey-haired days when the only worries were which party to go to.
This was found over at The Commercial Zone which is certainly well worth you visiting and having a dig around. The great Wedginaldinho will be getting sniffy that it is not the superior 7" version of Knife Slits Water; if you prefer that - and he is right - it can be found on a previous compilation in the archives.
A quick mix of tracks that are rocking the house here at Herbal Towers; ranging from the effete world of cricket ballads to run-ins with Mr. Reaper Esq. You don’t get that with your ‘Now That’s What I Call…’ compilations do ya kids?
Let's kick each others asses and rock….
