Episode 22 – The Bastard Son of Rhythm & Blues

How did R&B get it so very wrong when it has such auspicious parents? Maybe we should put the poor dog down… plus:

  • The Jamaica – Canadia connection. Canada gave bass heavy support to many of the Jamaican artists by bringing them over to record and release,  gig dates etc.
  • The Canadian Disco scene, the Montreal Jazz Festival and Canada as an unexpectedly musical nation.
  • How music twists and turns: Britney Spears’s producer samples some crazy Indian tune for a pop hit then it goes back into the underground with Quiche Lorène who produce a jump up ska version of Toxic or is it after all a version of ‘Tere Mere Beech Men’. Who get’s the copyright money for this? That’s what I wanna know. Unlikely it’s some ageing bollywood producer.
  • Let’s all go on the road with Gogol Bordello: Slough, Reading, Weston Super Mare, here we come… The new poly-national Merry Pranksters?
