Three on a Thursday #177


Summers here!

And just in time for Glasto as well, which to be fair descends into a Somme-like mire of cowshit and mud, complete with Trenchfoot and dodgy-food-van-related dysentery pretty much every other year.

Not that I’m jealous of those going.

Obviously.

Not even a little bit.

I do like me some of that good, home cooked, mama’s apple pie, old fashioned hip-hop and the Untouchable Force Organisation have provided that in spades on Wanna Rock.

Built around a Joe Quartermain hook, beefed up with the ubiquitous Funky Drummer break, Mix Master Ice gives plenty of fun for Educated Rapper and Kangol Joe to bounce off one another gloriously. Definitely one for the bag.

(Once again The Allergies spotted this and dropped it on their podcast. If you like this sort of thing, go check their shows out)

As is becoming more regular on ToT, there’s usually at least one disco flavoured track out of the three, and this week it’s a lovely little rerub of Slave’s Just A Touch of Love, by Italian Disco Stallion Moplen.

Spotted this one whilst working my way through DJ Maseo’s stuffed-to-the-gills-with-classics Boiler Room session from 2017. If you’re after a BBQ jam this summer, I’d suggest you take a listen to his set.

And now, the end is near … last track coming up, and its a slightly odd one.

I was down at my local brewery tap last Friday, and there was a DJ playing whilst I was at the bar. The track spinning was a bizarre folk tune with a loping reggae-ish overtones, and a random sampled overprocessed chipmunk sounding vocal.

Turns out if you give Paul McCartney a big sack of weed (allegedly), a drum machine and some synths and lock him away on a Scottish farm for a while, he turns out oddness like Check My Machine. There’s an entire album of similar tracks called McCartney II, if you like it …
