Groovement Podcast: Motion Sickness – A Mix For Now Then by Agent J


The new issue of Now Then Manchester is out now digitally, and can be read here.

I’ve done a mix for this issue to accompany the mag and articles I wrote therein – an interview with Neal Sugarman of the Dap-Kings and a review of the Grimmfest horror festival.

I wrote a blurb about the mix here.

Groovement 45s: The Soul Twins (Aug 2014) by Jamie Groovement Aka Agent J on Mixcloud

45 minutes of soul 45s! 

Jeff and Stuart Parish have been staples on the Manchester music scene for years, holding down ‘soul, hip-hop, disco, house, funk, Northern, reggae and all the bits inbetween’. They’re also two of the soundest guys about, with a real passion for hearing and collecting good music, not just playing it. I’m well chuffed to have got them to do a 45s special for Groovement.

Groovement Podcast – Groovement 45s: El Mensaje

groovement 45 mensaje
Spinning with Myron & E last week at Band on the Wall gave me a bit of a thirst to record a strictly 45s podcast – I’ve decided to make it an ongoing series  within the podcast series, just to confuse you.

Each one will be roughly 45 minutes long, with strictly A or B sides of 45s only. Many will sound crackly… no chat on this one, just tunes.

Recorded 12th July 2014.


Groovement 45s: El Mensaje by Jamie Groovement on Mixcloud

The Rollers – One Little Piece – Deep City Records

Kicking off the podcast because it’s amazing. The Numero Group put this 45 out around the same time as their album collecting tracks from the Deep City label.

Conrad Jackson – Come Back With Me – Sonic Wax Records

A single-sided record – as a lovely bloke the other day said to me, one side’s all you need when a tune is that good. Smooth, bass-heavy and soaring.

Myron & E with The Soul Investigators – If I Gave You My Love – Stones Throw Records

I was lucky enough to warm up for this Stones Throw vocal duo last week, look out for the interview on here soon. I grabbed this one at the gig, where they had the Gene Dudley Group as their backing band and blew us away while Germany were killing Brazil 7-1.

Quetzal – Give Something – Favourite Records

From Onra and Quetzal’s four track Tribute EP. One of my favourite tracks, ever. The sample is Creative Source’s version of You Can’t Hide Love. Ridiculously, when Onra first came to Manchester in 2009, I ran up to him telling him how much I loved it, only to have him point to the back of the record and explain that they hadn’t made the tracks collaboratively, it was solely Quetzal’s – which is obvious if you read the credit. He’s circled it with a smiley on my copy.

Hielo Ardiente – El Mensaje – Ximena Records

A gift from Jungle Fire, an amazing version of the Cymande standard with spaced-out organ.

Abel Lima e Les Sofas – Corre Riba Corre Baxo – Sofrito

Recorded in Paris in the 70s and issued last week by the always-amazing Sofrito. Click the link to find out more.

Charles Bradley & Larose Jackson – Luv Jones – Dunham

Hot pink vinyl! Can you hear it? Kicking off Daptone’s coloured vinyl mission as they count down to their 100th release, this is actually on Tommy TNT Brenneck;s Daptone subsidiary Dunham.

The Rance Allen Group – I Got To Be Myself – The Gospel Truth Records

Gospel Truth was an imprint of Stax, and the Rance Allen Group incorporated rock sounds into soul… they were still active recently, check the site. Reason To Survive is actually my favourite track of theirs, which I heard on DJ Oneman’s (not the Rinse Oneman) mix Cadillac Wax  for Names You Can Trust back in 2004.

Leroy & The Fabulous Rocking Soul Band with Al Glover & Gloria – Til The End of Time – Plut

Just wow. Reissued by Jazzman here.

Lo Steel – Music – B&J Records

A re-edit of Samuel Jonathan Johnson’s My Music by Daz-I-Kue, with added vocals from Lo Steel. Riduonkulous breakdown towards the end.
The Intruders – Memories Are Here To Stay – Philadelphia International Records

You might know this one from RJD2’s forlorn 2002 12″ Here’s What Left, or most probably recognise it in Common and Bilal’s The 6th Sense.


The Phenomenal Handclap Band – Baby – Truth & Soul Records

Another one of those that always gets someone coming to ask what it is. Standing out on the album as a loner (the rest is fairly fast paced psych soul), Baby is a wedge of sad soul. Written by Daniel Collas, who was a true gent when I hooked up with the band at the Deaf Institute in Manchester.  Although this 45 was on T&S, the album was released on Tummy Touch.

El Combo Chimbita – Puro Show – Names You Can Trust

Released in April of this year by NYC, available on their Bandcamp. El Combo Chimbita are an offshoot of Colombian New Yorkers MAKU soundsystem.

The Johnny Otis Show ft Barbara Morrison – Hey Boy! I Want Ya’ – Jazz World Records

Shuggie Otis’ dad. My copy of this 45, Hey Boy! I Want Ya’ / Nigger, Please! has the labels reversed. It looks like this track never featured on any album. This blog has a little more info.

So, that was fun. Any feedback appreciated – hit me up on the contact form above or Twitter!
