  • LAST NIGHT A DJ SAVED MY LIFE
. 
In my 20s, operated on a precise ceremonial level on Tuesday nights: leaving pink and garage behind, I would get funked up to at home, dress up as Debbie Harry or Barbarella, head to the car, pick up Natalie and drive to the 'Funky Chicken Club'. When I pulled in front of Natalie's door, I always put Jimmy Bo Horne's 'Spank' on because I loved to see her get excited. . 
The Funky Chicken Club was a middle-sized, weekly electronic discotheque in Cologne and insanely perfect to me - I vividly remember passing the door, going down the red velvet stairs with the bass and music coming closer with every step, it all was so exciting and promising every single Tuesday night. The owner and resident (Andreas) 'Disco Gessner' is still my favorite DJ to this day, despite seeing guest DJ's like Derrick May, Westbam and others there- I was there for my local Disco-Punk (and his Mom, who spun Disco records all night in her own room ❤️)
.

Disco Gessner was relentlessly sporting a Mohawk throughout all the years, and played the most eclectic and perfect mix of Disco, Electro, and (post-) punk, and all on vinyl - he had the best collection I've ever seen. . 
Oh, there are so many stories to be told about these nights. But truth is, not many kisses were exchanged, since I only left the dancefloor to buy Long Island Ice Teas. I was there for the music. It was heaven.
. 
And around 2002/2003 there was one record coming up in the late hours, after 2-3. It was Metro Area, the perfect modern fusion of electro and disco, complete with Studio 54 strings and flutes. 
I can still feel myself dancing there... groove baby, groove 🎶 . . . . .

  • Genesis ‎– Foxtrot (1972)

Coffee, Smoke, Genesis. 
Over the years, I’ve noticed that I often start my day with the same rotation of albums. The morning ritual necessarily includes a soundtrack to help ease me into the day.  The coffee’s the jolt, the smoke chills it out, the music begins the journey which accompanies every new sunrise.

Genesis has soundtracked more mornings than most artists, Foxtrot in particular.  Not sure why but if today is any indication, I just woke up with the instrumental intro to “Watcher Of The Skies” playing in my head.  It’s this whole morning soundtrack theme that has made Foxtrot my most played Genesis lp in the VJ Archive.  There are others; Pharaoh Sanders’ “Thembi”, the Lee Hazlewood LITA compilation, Billie Holiday’s early Columbia sides. 
I guess I’m saying that ritual is a very big part of why I listen to music on vinyl.  It’s familiar and comforting, muscle memory inducing feelings of well being. Turning on Spotify or Sirius isn’t the same experience, even if it’s the same music you’re playing. Vinyl connects you a bit more deeply; it’s that tactile ingredient that rounds out the experience in a more meaningful way.

Here’s your music link (in comments). Get it on vinyl if you like what you hear, the difference is worth it.

  • Secret Pyramid - Distant Works
Gailur, 2019

First vinyl release of two long out of print cassette releases from Secret Pyramid: Distant Works I originally released 2013 and Distant Works II released 2016.

A beautiful compilation of music and a great complement to the proper albums. I have all three previous full-length albums and have posted them earlier with some vague descriptions of how they sound but for some reason the last one (Two Shadows Collide) won't show up through hash tags. If someone has reported it, I sure can't see why.

In any case, anything from Secret Pyramid you could get your hands on is highly recommended. If warm drones, beautiful ambience and melancholy melodies hidden underneath clouds of gentle feedback sounds like your thing, seriously don't miss out. This is one of my favourite artists in the style.

  • Twinkle『Golden Lights』LP
.
ツインクルと言えば、元fruityのオークラ君とツンツンがかつてやってたバンドの名前ですが、こちらのツインクルは60年代グレートブリテンの女性歌手。
.
要するに60年代のイギリスのアイドル歌手です。
.
モッズの歌姫!ロッカーズのアイドル!等々の肩書で90年代に突如発売されたシングル編集盤です。
当時ワタクシが働いておりました某レコ屋でヘビーローテーションしておりまして、洗脳されて買った一枚であります。
少し鼻にかかった舌ったらずな可愛い声とブロンドのルックスだけで野郎共はノックアウトですが、Twinkleの更に凄いところは16歳の少女にしてヒット曲の多くは自作なこと!
若きシンガーソングライターなワケです。
.
60年代のポップスはだいたい優秀なスタッフが周りを固めて、ヒット狙いの曲を世に送り出してた時代。そんな中でデビュー曲からいきなり自作というのは本当に凄い!
.
そのデビュー曲「Terry」(1964年)でギターを弾いているのが、Big Jim SullivanとLittle JimことJimmy Page!
もちろん後のLed Zeppelin!
Jimmy Pageがスタジオミュージシャンとして修行(?)を始めた頃の録音でしょうかね。
.
セカンドシングルの「Golden Lights」(1965年)はThe Smithsがカバーしてますね。モリッシーもファンだったんですかね。フランスギャルでお馴染みのあの名曲の英語バージョンも最高です!つうかどの曲もサイコーす!
.
そんなTwinkleさんはオリジナルアルバムを出す事も無く、活動のペースが落ちて行き、2015年に亡くなったようです。というワケでLed Zeppelinマニアはマストな音源であります(笑)。#twinkle #goldenlights #jimmypage #thesmiths #vinyl #vinylrecords #vinyljunkie #vinylcollection
