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!

Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – Bacao Suave

Out now on Truth & Soul Records’ Plane Jane imprint, the talent behind the steel pan monster that is PIMP (see Mocambo Records) return. The album’s due later this year.

Victor Jara – El Arado

Chile had just exited the World Cup on penalties to Brazil when I recorded this – this one’s for Jara, who hit the post. Victor Jara was, of course, one of the most important symbols of Chile for those that suffered during and after the coup. This one is from my mum’s eponymous LP, which is signed by Victor’s wife.

Bobby Womack – I Can Understand It

I woke up this morning to the news that Bobby had passed away. This is my favourite track of his.

Souleance – Vem Jogar

To balance out the football vibes – this is from Souleance’s new 45 on First Word Records.

Lost Midas – Head Games ft Audris

New on Tru Thoughts – large!

Charles Edison – Bitstorm

Looking forward to much more from this guy. I interviewed him here:

Ana Tjoux – Somos Sur ft Shadia Mansour

Because there wasn’t yet enough Chilean presence in this podcast. From her newest album Vengo, and featuring Palestinian rapper Shadia Mansour.

Ibibio Sound Machine – I’m Running (Nya Fehe)

What an amazing album this one is! One of Soundway’s ‘modern’ releases.

Roses Gabor – Rush

Out now on Girls Music

The Colonel – What You’ve Gotta Do

Mi bredren from Sheffield – catch him on Wednesday nights on The Bassment, Sheffield Live This one is from the Next Level EP, out here

The Lions – Revelations (Alphabet City Dub) ft Black Shakespeare

On the mighty Stones Throw Records, enjoying a period of high exposure at the moment owing to the film Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton. Try subscribing to their Drip site – you get each new release for a measly $10 a month. Loads of other labels on there too. The Lions I first heard on Ubiquity, and they continue to release strong business on their new home.

Slugabed – Another Chance 2k14

Confession – the original version of this tune, and the song the sample is taken from, are both guilty pleasures for me. Slugabed gives it a kick up the arse in his unique style.

Henri-Pierre Noel – “Afro-Funk” Groove

Henri-Pierre is still active in Montreal, and Wah Wah 45s are committed to releasing his early works – this is a stormer

Matthew Halsall & The Gondwana Orchestra – Kiyomizu-Dera

My good pal Matt sees more exposure with each release, and this one is no different. I was pleased to hear Alex Nut playing another track from the new album, When The World Was One, on his Rinse FM show this morning. This is Matt’s first self-released vinyl LP, and you can purchase it here

Charles Bradley & Lerose Jackson – Luv Jones

I got the pink 45! These sold out pretty quick, the first in Daptone’s series of coloured vinyl counting down to their 100th release. This is actually on Daptone imprint Dunham, Tommy TNT Brenneck’s side label. It also serves as an intro to Lerose Jackson. Big tune.

Akira Ifukube – Godzilla Main Title

Coming out on Death Waltz Recording Company 16 July is the 1954 Godzilla OST. The second track is this – fierce, foreboding and intense.

Ghostface Killah & BADBADNOTGOOD – Six Degress ft Danny Brown

I grabbed the 10″ of this today, a nice little jewel on Lex Records. It’s funny – when I interviewed Ghost a few years back he was still new to working with live bands. ‘I roll with the Wu Allstars,’ he told me – he wasn’t aware of the Truth & Soul crew El Michels Affair (despite having sampled their music) who later released Enter The 37th Chamber, but later worked extensively with Adrian Younge’s instrumentation for Twelve Reasons To Die. This sees him in fine form over Toronto’s BADBADNOTGOOD.

Om Unit & Danny Scrilla – Gentrification

From Cosmic Bridge’s first compilation, Cosmology, out 21 July.

Amral’s Trinidad Cavaliers – It Sure Is Funky

From Strange Breaks & Mr Thing III, out now on BBE Records. Mr Thing was over here in Manchester last week for our final In The Loop club night – Groovement even got a shout out in the sleeve notes, don’t you know! This is the monster ‘steel pan record’ on the double LP, available here

Neko Neko – Where

Neko Neko – Where (Fulgeance Remix)

Neko Neko is my pal Graham from Manchester, who also featured on the legendary (!) Groovement Volume One comp. This one is on My First Moth and features remixes from Fulgeance and Claude – it’s a wicked tune, so I couldn’t help but play two versions. The single is called Between Two Cities Part 1, no doubt a reference to Neko’s transference from Leeds.

The Shaolin Afronauts – All Who Pass By

The third album from this crew is due out in Summer, called Follow The Path. This is from the Ojo Abameta EP, with an African twinge.

Samrai vs Mad Lion – Concrete vs Love

A recent giveaway from Manchester’s Samrai, one of the nicest guys, ever. Co-runner of Swing Ting, find more of his stuff on Soundcloud here

Groundislava – October Acid

Pursuing a more definite 4/4 style on this EP, and a world away from his first, 8-bit shenanigans. Here’s a little relevant interview

Super Audio Time! – Game Of Thrones

Apologies, I couldn’t resist. Air Adam put me onto this one last week, and I’ve just finished the end of season 3…

Ellis Meade x Kydro – Manchester

Two of Manchester’s finest — download the EP from Room 2

Alpha Strongahh – Palabra

The third Chilean connection on this podcast. Alpha Strongahh, aka Tecla de Oro, calls forward thinking label Discos Pegaos his home. A wall of noise with a relentless beat (this is good), Palabra is taken from his new, free to download, EP entitles Nuestroh. It’s the label’s 15th release – grab it here

Alphabets Heaven – Everything Stays The Same

Brighton producer who continues to develop his styles and sounds to wider exposure each time… this will be a 12″ on King Deluxe in ‘probably August’.

Fracture – Werk It

From the Loving Touch EP on Exit Records, available here

Pixelord – Sinking Ship ft Fifi Rong

Prolific Russian producer, linked with the amazingly-named Hyperbolid Records, whose first vinyl release is out now. Buy the t-shirt!

Mad Cobra – Di Baddest (Max Rubadub Blend)

Absolute badman conglomeration. Download

God Knows & MynameisjOhn – Maroto

Clare, Ireland to you. MynameisjOhn has been bubbling away with various projects over the last few years, all non-conforming music worth your while. Buy the album
