PLAYLIST 67

Uploaded May 5, 2019

Playlist 67 is… 85% vinyl friendly! Impressive.

Turntable 67 - 41 Rooms - show 67

A Word Of Warning. A couple of tracks in this show are slightly ‘sonically challenged’.

Lyric of Playlist 67

As much for the melody it rides on…Now season with health, Two lovers walk on lakeside mile
Try pleasing with stealth, rodeo (?), See the stands long ending path

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


00.41

NEW ORDER – Cries And Whispers (Cargo Demo) – Movement (Definitive Edition), LP – 2019

In the works for a long time but it was worth the wait. Including contributions from yours truly, if the content of this ‘edition’ is anything to go by then New Order followers are in for a real treat moving onwards through the other albums in the band’s catalogue. This version of Cries and Whispers possesses a vocal phrasing style Barney never returned to, but as understandable as that is, this is a fascinating example of the band trying to find its feet.

New Order - Cries and Whispers (Cargo Demo) - 41 Rooms - show 67

03.14

WIRE – Our Swimmer – 7″ – Rough Trade – 1981

As clear as day a post punker!

Wire- Our Swimmer - 41 Rooms - show 67

6.36

MARINE – Same Beat – 7″ – Les Disques du Crépuscule – 1982

Said for the umpteenth time at 41 Rooms (and usually with respect to these guys) – Belgian funk! A few years back there was a great All-You-Need-To-Know-About-Marine-type website. Sadly, it’s nowhere to be seen these days.

Marine - Same Beat - 41 Rooms - show 67

09.51

THE HIGSONS – Run Me Down – 7″ – Two-Tone – 1983

Charlie Higson in the area! Prior to his more financially lucrative later years as a comedian, writer and actor, though I’m fairly sure that’s not him in the car.

The Higsons - Run Me Down - 41 Rooms - show 67

Not one of my promotions but that of good mate, Simon Parker. Having watched the Cocteau Twins in Chelmsford two nights before and been due to see New Order in London the next is very likely the reason I didn’t make it along to this gig.

The Higsons - Bedford Poster - 41 Rooms - show 67

13.29

JAH WOBBLE, JAKI LIEBEZEIT and HOLGER CZUKAY – How Much Are They? – 12″ – Island – 1981

A tune to skank around to.


Jah Wobble, Jaki Liebezeit, Holger Czukay - How Much Are They - 41 Rooms - show 67

18.07

SUNS OF ARQA (feat PRINCE FAR-I) – G(et) D(Own) Magick – 12″ – Antler Records – 1983

I think the track was originally released as an instrumental, but the vocal adds a ‘greater than the sum of its parts’ element.


Suns Of Arqa (feat Prince Far-I) - G(et) D(Own) Magick - 41 Rooms - show 67

21.50

DENNIS FERRER – Hey Hey (Radio Edit) – CD only – 2010 – Defected

Eve Therond (the vocalist here) appears to have done nothing else beyond this. A bit of a shame as she sounds interesting.

Dennis Ferrer - Hey Hey (Radio Edit) - 41 Rooms - show 67

24.58

KATHIE TALBOT(T) – When Everyone (European Nights Mix) – 12″ – Vinylla Records – 1994

By pure coincidence, another ‘only ever release’ situation… but it’s a very cute one. A clattering percussive sound so mid 90s house. When Everyone? Any day now? Sadly, I really don’t think so.

Kathie Talbott - When Everyone - 41 Rooms - show 67

29.37

HONEY & THE BEES – Love Addict – 7″ – Arctic – 1969

A tough funk soul sound that commands big bucks and here’s some group info.


Honey & The Bees - Love Addict - 41 Rooms - show 67

32.04

LAURA VANE & THE VIPERTONES – Roof Off (Original Extended Version) – 12″ – Unique – 2009

Thumping modern blue-eyed funk.

Laura Vane and the Vipertones - Roof Off - 41 Rooms - show 67

36.43

JANIS JOPLIN – Move Over – Pearl, LP – CBD – 1971

Not a great fan of the lady’s work but she could belt it out with passion… and this is definitely a stormer.


Janis Joplin - Move Over - 41 Rooms - show 67

40.09

SUZI CHUNK with GROOVY UNCLE – For The Millionth Time – Girl From The Neck Down, LP – State Records – 2012

For the millionth time can you stop exaggerating‘. Suzi in sixties mode. 🙂

Suzi Chunk - No Stone Unturned - 41 Rooms - show 62 

42.50

DELTA 5 – Powerlines – 7″ – PRE Records – 1982

A bit more of a funkier swerve on this than their other material suggested.

Delta 5 - Powerlines - 41 Rooms - show 67

45.50

MARTHA AND THE MUFFINS – Several Styles Of Blonde Girls Dancing – Danseparc, LP – RCA – 1983

I’d have instead gone for a visual of the Wake-4 label 7″ that this tune came out on, but I don’t have it, and nor do many others judging but its lack of coverage on the net.

Martha and The Muffins - Obedience - 41 Rooms - show 60

50.33

FAD GADGET – Fireside Favourite – 7″ – Mute – 1980

It plods nicely along.

Fad Gadget - Fireside Favourite - 41 Rooms - show 67

54.18

THE HUMAN LEAGUE – The Path Of Least Resistance – Reproduction, LP – 1979

If there was such a thing as A Hundred Tunes That Fuelled Our (Winkles) Club – I think this would be one of them.

The Human League - Path Of Least Resistance - 41 Rooms - show 67

57.38

RICHARD H KIRK – Lets Jack – Dasein, 2LP – Intone – 2017

Recently out performing all new material, live and solo as Cabaret Voltaire, this is the man solo, as Richard. Never the twain shall meet… ah, but would we know if they did?

Richard H Kirk - Lets Jack - 41 Rooms - show 67

CHRIS AND COSEY – Put Yourself In Los Angeles – Heartbeat, LP – Rough Trade – 1981

A hectic, bustling, inner city feel… and therefore a suitable soundtrack if you do indeed want to put yourself in Los Angeles.

Chris and Cosey - Put Yourself In Los Angeles - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.07.17

ESTHER OFARIM – Black Is The Colour (Special Edit) – Youtube only?

A traditional folk tune that’s been taken every which way by Nina Simone, Joan Baez, Paul Weller and a bunch of others. This version seemingly only surfaced within ‘11 Uhr 20‘, a three part crime mini series made for German TV in 1970. With the film scene as the backdrop, search it out on Youtube via the channel of this edit’s instigator, conmad24 who, judging by their other videos is either a massive fan of EO, involved with her professionally… or Esther herself 🙂 In my youth the only reason I happened on her was through her involvement with the Eurovision Song Contest and a ditty that put me off wanting to hear anything else by her (the show can have that effect) but the Euro nonsense pretty much disguised the fact she was a brilliant vocalist in her prime and at the age of 78, she still performs live to this day. Go! girl.

Esther Ofarim - Black Is The Colour - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.09.36

BRENDA LEE – Break It To Me Gently – 7″ – Brunswick – 1962

A big hit for the little one back at the dawn of time, I first knowingly heard this just a few months back! In the sixties/seventies, as a teenager I wouldn’t have gone out of my way to hear tunes from a decade prior – it all seemed a long time past – but now things are heard in a different light.

My acetate.

Brenda Lee - Break It To Me Gently (acetate) - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.12.09

WALTER JACKSON – It’s An Uphill Climb To The Bottom – 7″ – Okey – 1966

Another tune I picked up on very late (three or four decades late, roughly). At a record fair a soul dealer was spinning a slightly trashed copy on a portable turntable of a vaguely similar vintage but it still shone through, though. Unsurprisingly, Lou Rawls (another voice nearly as smooth as Jackson’s) also had a stab at the tune but this is the one for me.

Walter Jackson - It's An Uphill Climb To The Bottom - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.14.53

E.J. & THE ECHOES – Put A Smile On Your Face – 7″ – Diamond Jim – 1967

Gorgeous.

E.J. & The Echoes - Put A Smile On Your Face - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.17.33

A CERTAIN RATIO – Houses In Motion – ACR:Box – Mute – 2019

The story of how, in 1980, ACR nearly recorded this Talking Heads cover with Grace Jones at the vocal helm is right here but nearly four decades on the band have dusted it down (and maybe tweaked it some more?) and let it loose as part of a, well, four decades retrospective. Step aside any love of ACR and/or funkiness, this tune – ably matched by the sharp as nails video – is still right… on… it.

Some equally sharp bod with ACR’s publishing in their hands should approach major car companies rolling out new models around the world – pushing quality, innovation, experience, class, edge, (other adjectives are available) – and convince them these guys should be hired to soundtrack the campaign. Hell, have them playing in the ad!

A Certain Ratio - Houses In Motion - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.21.07

THE MYSTIC MOODS – Cosmic Sea – 7″ – Warner Brothers – 1973

Back in 1973 this would have been quite a left field sound for a major label 7″. A bit of a Billy Preston Outa Space crossed with Stevie’s Shoo Be Doo Be Doo Dah Day thing going on… sort of.


The Mystic Moods - Cosmic Sea - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.23.28

QUIET VILLAGE – Circus Of Horror – 12″ – Whatever We Want – 2006

Has ‘incidental film music’ in its grooves.


Quiet Village - Circus Of Horror - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.28.09 –

MILK DISCO – Twisted Wheel – 7″ b-side, Ra-Ra Rok Records – 2017

Possibly not referencing the 1960s Manchester northern soul club. 🙂

Milk Disco - Twisted Wheel - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.30.53

WORKFORCE – Theories – John Peel session only – 1986

Aaaahhhh, a band I had a special affinity for and was involved with. This from the first (and best) of two radio sessions for Peely. A towering sound – in that it’s a sound that sounds towering – with an undercurrent of menace.

Workforce - Theories - 41 Rooms - show 67


01.41.44

THE ASSOCIATES – Deeply Concerned – The Affectionate Punch, LP – Fiction – 1980

More plodding sounds and it feels like Billy M is in a reflective mood.

The Associates - Deeply Concerned - 41 Rooms show 67


01.45.01

NEON NEON – Dream Cars – Stainless Style, LP – Lex Records – 2008

Super Furry Animals’ Gruff Rhys fronting an eighties, big sounding production number.

THE COMSAT ANGELS – Be Brave – John Peel session only – 1981

From the third of four sessions the band did for the great man. Might have to use the word ‘menacing’ again. No, indeed I definitely will.

The Comsat Angels - Be Brave (session) - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.54.24

INTERPOL – C’Mere – 7″ – Matador – 2005

Adding to any It’s The Simple Things list of mine… the bridge and Paul Banks’ dipping around vocals at 1min 41’ish is just sublime.

Interpol - C'Mere - 41 Rooms - show 67

01.54.24

NIHILISTS – Over Is So Over – 12″ – Classic Album Club Records – 2016

More front man vocals making a difference. Former Puressence vocalist, James Mudriczki at the coal face of an epic.

Nihilists - Over Is So Over - 41 Rooms - show 67

Show 68 hits the ether on June 2.

Hopefully you’ll hear us then.

  1. Well what a bank holiday Monday treat that was…black coffee, marmite on toast and this episode. Proud owner of the first 4 records (plus cassette of the Higsons Bedford show)
    Loved the segue from Marine to Higsons. ACR were great on Saturday – long set including Houses in Motion . Guest appearance from Barry Adamson …just onto to discogs to order copy of that SUNS OF ARQA (feat PRINCE FAR-I) 12 inch

    1. Cheers, Jerry. First four? Good going… and good to see ACR dropping Houses In Motion into the set.
