RareCollections: Australian Funk, Jazz and Disco - ABC Canberra - Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Ausrtralia has a history of quality funk, jazz and disco records and in this episode Jordie Kilby teams up with collector, DJ and record shop owner Chris Gill to spin a few of their favourites.
Hiroshi and Claudia - Beats In The Depth - 1979 - Atom Records.
Hiroshi Yasukawa was a top session musician in Japan during the 70’s and 80’s. He appeared on jazz/groove albums alongside Hiroshi Kubota, Toots Thielmans and Naoya Matsuoka. In 1979 he teamed up with the mysterious Claudia for this exploration of a day in the life of a hip young musician. The production on the album was split between Sydney and Tokyo and it was only ever released in Australia. Hiroshi’s 1984 album "Fission" was a similarly styled international production that was released in both Australia and Japan and produced by ex Roxy Music keyboard player David Skinner.
Donovan’s Druids - Love Potion No. 9 - 1971 - Earth Records.
Dave Donovan began his career in NZ playing alongside Mike Perjanik in several popular local acts before moving to Sydney in the late 60’s. As an in demand session guitarist during the 70’s he played with the cream of Australia’s entertainment world including John Farnham, Don Lane and Marty Rhone. He appeared on more than 200 albums and played on over 8000 commercial jingles. In 1971 he stepped out on his own cutting the album On The Country Line as Swamp Salad and this obscure cover of the well known Lieber and Stoller song originally made famous by the Clovers. The highly regarded drum break at the beginning of this record is played by George Adamson.
Alan Lee Jazz Quintet - Flying Saucer - 1974 - Jazznote Records.
Melbourne vibes player Alan Lee started playing jazz in the mid 50’s after hearing Lionel Hampton play with Benny Goodman. His influences range from trad jazz to be bop and he played with many of the great players kicking around Melbourne at the time including Bob Barnard, Ted Vining, Peter Martin and John Sangster. He recorded for a range of lables including Crest, Swaggie, Cumquat and Jazznote. His album "Smilor" saw his band take on a range of interesting material including the jazzy "Flying Saucer" and a cover of the War funk nugget "The World Is A Ghetto".
Chris Williams - Born To Get down - 1975 - Hammard Records.
Chris Williams was an American living in Sydney in the mid 1970’s. He was a DJ in Kings Cross spinning the latest dance records to revellers each weekend. In 1975 he decided to step out from behind the DJ booth and have a go at cutting his own disco material. He contacted Sydney party outfit the Hotrox Band who included Brooke Tabberer on vocals and Graeme Skelly on guitar. In one evening they put down an albums worth of memorable funk and disco material that was released as "Keep On Dancing". Williams also recorded a single the same year with another band known as the Austral Funk Machine for Wizard Records. It claims to be Australia’s first disco hit and while it was never a hit it is probably the first Aussie disco release.

How Disco Works — Fly, robin, fly indeed. No musical genre has risen and burned out as quickly as disco, and historians are still trying to unravel the animosity aimed at it. Join Chuck and Josh as they dig into disco’s underground roots and its sashay into the mainstream.
For our “music” episode, Canadian comedy legend Sean Cullen joins us to talk about music-inspired riots, castrati, music as torture, Norwegian black metal and backmasking. Plus movies, TV, and Lesser of Two Evils.
Second part of the KLF story where we meet Bill Drummond strumming techno on a acoustic guitar, Jimmy Cauty goes into Space 1985, dogs rowing boats, abandon all art now, The fake (?) FoLKies, What Time Is 9/11 , remote scottish island rituals, german lounge punks, Royal Fail, David Starkey Ragga MC, guerilla radio stations and dead sheep.
It’s little secret that Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty, usually known as The KLF and Justified Ancients of Mu Mu are a major influence on mashup, dance and pop culture – and myself personally. Even the intro to Radio Clash contains sneaky KLF elements!
Some KLF rarities and decent quality versions of KLF/JAMs tunes appeared earlier in the year via the excellent KLF Mailing List & KLF.de and this podcast literally would not exist without their help – big thanks! Since their ‘retirement’ in 1992 KLF has entered into lore (and a lot of their creations into obscurity/rarity) but I was there from Doctorin the Tardis and later the second version of What Time Is Love buying the singles each of the Stadium House trilogy on day or week of release – I still have the 7″s!
But before that their 1987 album and sailing in hot (Swedish?) waters with ABBA and sample clearance (or more importantly lack of it) Their hiphop splatter samplepunk early records is what we focus on here in part one – the early days upto the Pure Trance singles, a car making a hit record, The Manual, and the first White Room film, as a broke KLF despair of bankruptcy and a little known track called What Time Is Love takes off in the clubs…
Percussion Lab - Live and DJ Sets from around the World
Saturn Never Sleeps is the fruitful collaboration between legendary producer King Britt and singer/artist Rucyl. For the past two years or so they have been holed up, perfecting their craft and dedicating themselves to continuing a mutant, forward thinking version of fellow Philadelphian Sun-Ra. With their debut album, Yesterday’s Machine, they have launched themselves into the spotlight, with a wide ranging tour and technologically informed sound. This mix sees the duo splitting selection duties into two engrossing parts, mixing new contemporaries such as Africa Hitech with classic BOC and Aphex tunes as well as their own Saturn Never Sleeps material. Check the album, out August 2nd on the prolific Alpha Pup Records. Speaking of Alpha Pup - their new regular NYC takeover shows have been causing quite a stir out here. Be sure to check their monthly Knitting Factory events.
