Episode 74 – 1.12.19

PLAYLIST 74 uploaded December 1, 2019

and is 94% vinyl friendly! Near perfect

41 Rooms, Show 74 turntable (Technics 1200 MK1)

Ah, memories. I used to have one of these. A Technics 1200 MK1.


Lyric of Playlist 74….

Confusion in her eyes that says it all… etc. Ian C’s real life recollection makes this a no contest.


00.00

(Intro) THE FLAMINGOS – Stars (Edit) – Unreleased demo – 1983 Episode #1 for info.


00.41

NEW ORDER – Plastic – Music Complete, LP – Mute – 2015

This album needed to be a solid return to form – and it was! With Plastic one of the highlights, mix in and out of Donna Summer’s I Feel Love at your will. 🙂

New Order - Plastic - 41 Rooms - show 74


07.33

THE CREATURES – Turn It On – Anima Animus, 2×10″ LP – Sioux Records – 1999

With the vinyl on this one following on a year later from the original (CD) release, Siouxsie has survived the passage of four plus decades better than most, although now minus her skins thumping (here it’s a bit tribal) ex-partner, Budgie.

The Creatures - Turn It On - 41 Rooms - show 74

11.13

LES PANTIES – Westie – 7″ b-side – Fantomes Records – 2011

The name won’t get any better no matter how many of their tracks get spun at 41 Rooms but it’s still some fine 21st century post punk, and Brussels-style.

Les Panties - Westie - 41 Rooms - show 74

13.19

PINS – Oh Lord – Wild Nights, clear vinyl LP – Bella Union – 2015

All girl Manchester band with more of that 21st century PP feel.

Pins - Oh Lord - 41 Rooms - show 74

17.39

JOY DIVISION – She’s Lost Control – 12″ – Factory – 1980

There would have been good money on me getting to this track way before show 74. £1.95 in Bedford’s HMV somewhere very close to its Oct ’80 release date was the small price I had to pay.

Joy Division - She's Lost Control - 41 Rooms - Show 74

21.23

ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK – Enola Gay – 7″ – Dindisc – 1980

The sound far lighter and breezier than the lyrics, a dancefloor safe bet at our club, Winkles in 1981.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - Enola Gay - 41 Rooms - show 74

24.50

THE TUBES – No Way Out – 7″ b-side – A&M – 1979

A lively bunch from the US of A… and white vinyl!

The Tubes - No Way Out - 41 Rooms - Show 74

28.01

UK – In The Dead Of Night – 7″ – Polydor – 1978

Back in the era where I was mixing my rock – in this case a bit prog – with the onslaught of punk and what was following. John Wetton’s vocal, previously fronting King Crimson, is the highlight here for me.

UK - In The Dead Of Night - 41 Rooms - Show 74

31.54

SIMON HEARTFIELD – Arx Luminis (Live Edit) – Youtube only? – 2010

Certainly worth more than the barely three figure sightings it’s gathered in nine years on Youtube. A d&b, gothy, prog… thingy.

Simon Heartfield - Arx Luminis (Live Edit) - 41 Rooms - show 74

34.13

GIL SCOTT-HERON – Re Ron (Long Version) – 12″ – Arista – 1984

He was such an astute observer, and had he lived to see the Trumpmeister run riot I think we can safely assume he’d have been no less so now.

Gil Scott-Heron - Re-Ron - 41 Rooms - Show 74

40.40

MALCOLM X – No Sell Out – 12″ – Tommy Boy – 1984

More 80s electronics and beats telling it like it was. Keith Le Blanc at the controls.

Malcolm X - No Sell Out - 41 Rooms - Show 74

45.59

DR JOHN – Right Place Wrong Time – 7″ – Atlantic – 1973

Along with others I had a (Sounds mag?) two page middle spread poster of Dr John on my bedroom wall back around these years. A bit strange considering this single was the only record of Dr. J’s I owned for the next decade plus. I think it was there because he looked ‘interesting’.

Dr John - Right Place Wrong Time - 41 Rooms - show 74

48.38

BERNARD BONNIER – I Can’t Sing – Casse-tête, LP – Amaryllis – 1984

Maybe he can’t, coz he’s certainly not trying to on here. Nicely bonkers.

Bernard Bonnier - I Can't Sing - 41 Rooms - show 74

54.13

LALI PUNA – Birds Flying High – Two Windows, LP – Morr Music – 2017

Reminds me very much of a remix of a Symetrics 12″ (Life Goes On) by Herbert, which definitely would have followed here had it not already featured on 41 Rooms.

Lali Puna - Two Windows - 41 Rooms - show 64 (2)

57.40

WORKING MEN’S CLUB – Teeth (Extended Mix) – 12″ – Heavenly – 2019

Two singles to date and both have featured on 41 Rooms. Bright young things.

Working Men's Club - Teeth (Extended Mix) - 41 Rooms - show 74

Tea or coffee?

AIR LIQUIDE – THX Is On – 12″ EP – Rising High Records – 1994

Without doubt I heard this bit of 303 driven (I think) techno via the late Colin Faver’s techno show on KISS FM (London style) at the time. In a slightly other world he’d previously been part of the late 70s/early 80s iconic Final Solution promoters of many a great London gig – Joy Division, New Order and a whole bunch of the greats from that era.

Air Liquide - THX Is On - 41 Rooms - Show 74

01.07.12

DEAD KENNEDYS – Man With The Dogs – 7″ b-side – Alternative Tentacles – 1979

Jello Biafra on heat.

Dead Kennedys - Man With The Dogs - 41 Rooms - show 74

01.10.06

AGE OF CHANCE – Bible Of The Beats – 7″ – Riot Bible – 1985

My diary tells me I was at their George and Dragon pub gig in Bedford, July 17 ’86, promoted by mate and Pickled Egg label head, Nigel Turner. John Peel was also there but I’ve no recollection of either the gig or Peely’s presence… unbelievable. Nigel’s brother, Andrew shot some cool pix, too.

54.25

Age Of Chance - Bible Of The Beats - 41 Rooms - Show 74

01.13.36

BLONDIE – Heart Full Of Soul (Live) – The Old Waldorf – SF, 21 Sept, 1977-Early And Late Shows (less than official) 2LP – Rox Vox -2015

Syphoned from the later show and broadcast on San Francisco’s KSAN-FM radio, a great marriage of Debbie Harry’s vocals and the Yardbirds. Maybe the sort of thing the band might well have released themselves in some modern day box set, to showcase their early punk years live bluster… if someone hadn’t unofficially beaten them to it. A song written by Graham Gouldman in his songwriter-for-hire, pre 10CC days.

JAKE STARR AND THE DELICIOUS FULLNESS – Little By Little – ‘Gimme Dusty’ 7″ – Hidden Volume – 2018

Yep, a ‘Gimme Dusty’ headed 7″ and (importantly for me) fronted by Thee Lexington Arrows’ vocalist, Kathleen Wilson, Little by Little somehow works far better than the Gimme Shelter flip, where she fronts her own band – not something I’d have guessed at before hearing the two tunes. 100 copies on black vinyl (mine below currently resting in California) and 200 with a ‘Milky Clear’ look.

Jake Starr & The Delicious Fullness - Little By Little - 41 Rooms - show 74

01.17.49

THE CLASH – London Calling – 7″ – CBS – 1979

The first Clash track here at 41 Rooms.

The Clash - London Calling - 41 Rooms - Show 74

01.21.07

GORDON LIGHTFOOT – The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald – 7″ – Reprise – 1976

This sounded ‘different’ when first heard on either Radio One or Two. A haunting sort of sound over the airwaves, and lengthy for a single.

Gordon Lightfoot - The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald - 41 Rooms - Show 74

01.27.19

THE BEATLES – Norwegian Wood – 7″, jukebox/promo only – Capitol – 1995

Only the second Fab 4 song to feature on 41 Rooms and showcased here visually in a format you’d not normally see the song. As the notion at 41 Rooms is – even with the most revered band to have walked the planet – to try keeping to the purity of the track in question we’ll highlight this see through green pressing. Discogs: ‘Only available through Collector’s Choice Music with the 1995 sealed set of Beatles albums. 1,000 copies were made.

The Beatles - Norwegian Wood- 41 Rooms - show 74

01.29.20

7SOULS – Way – Bandcamp / Soundcloud (only?) – 2018

A mysterious crew with a little gem. Thanks to mate, Dave Summersgill for the nod on this one.

7Souls - Way - 41 Rooms - show 74

01.32.45

FRED NEIL – The Dolphins – 7″ – Capitol – 1966

How low can you go? Not many vocals lower than Fred’s knocking around the folk clubs and coffee houses of early sixties America. Wonderful stuff.

Fred Neil - The Dolphins - 41 Rooms - show 74

01.36.42

FRANTIC ELEVATORS – Holding Back The Years – 7″ – No Waiting – 1982

Mick Hucknell’s post punk years and a very worthy take on a song he would return to in his later Simply Red era.

Frantic Elevators - Holding Back The Years - 41 Rooms - show 74

01.39.46

THE SOUND – Winning – From The Lions Mouth, LP – Korova – 1981

Post punk/new wave gold.

The Sound - Winning - 41 Rooms - show 74

01.43.54

PRAISE (feat MIRIAM STOCKLEY) – Dream On – 7″ – WEA – 1992

Not openly credited on this lush number, Ms Stockley would in later years go on a bit of an operatic journey and also fronted a hugely majestic and sweeping orchestral version of a certain mid seventies soul classic that would (like further up this playlist) put a purist’s nose out of joint. Teasingly, just a snippet floats around the net but if a full version is ever available it will also make it to 41 Rooms.

Praise - Dream On - 41 Rooms - Show 74

01.47.33

GREG PERRY – Come On Down – 7″ – Casablanca – 1975

More uplifting in sound than in the lyrics, maybe, this for me is one great soul single.

Greg Perry - Come On Down - 41 Rooms - show 74

01.50.48

INDO AMINATA – Love Will Be On Your Side – Greatest Dream, CD only – Mercury – 1996

Worldwide, the music scene is more integrated now but it was the nineties that saw a fair amount of slow/shuffling/trip hop beats being mixed with ‘world music’ vocals (ambient/ethnic/whatever) nearly building a scene of sorts – with Ibiza Chill Out/Café del Mar type CDs following a few years later. Indo Aminata lasted just the one album under her own name and this tune was the highlight from it.

Indo Aminata - Love Will Be On Your Side (Album Version) - 41 Rooms - show 74

01.55.31

MINNIE RIPERTON – Return To Forever – 7″ b-side – Capitol – 1979

Not sure how much of her eight octave vocal range gets a look in here but it’s a special track. Also on ‘Minnie’, the last album she made before succumbing to cancer.
