The 14th week of the non-rock 12″ singles played alphabetically series covers the letters R & S. Only one identified re-edit (The Revenge edit Hot Chocolate ‘Heaven Is In The Backseat Of My Cadillac’, Brixton 1976) but a lot of interesting new music [Red Axes, Optic, Rework, Riccio, Roberto, Sonny Rock, Rondenion, Saine], a collaboration by the Italo obscurities guru Flemming Dalum on the Red Laser label, a well-known artist under one of his other names (Psi Performer = Anthony Rother), the iconic Sade remixed by DJ Spinna, obscure US soul-disco band Revelation have a track from 1982, and Walter Gibbons mixes the classic-amazing disco of Salsoul Orchestra.

Week 13 of the non-rock 12″ singles played alphabetically series covers the letters P & Q. Many geographies and eras are here, put together in a way I hope makes sense. Among the re-edits, these are the ones I can identify: Persnickety Presents (Derrick L. Carter) edits Suzy Q ‘Get On Up And Do It Again’ NYC 1981, Phantom Slasher (Idjut Boys) edit Junior Byron ‘Dance To The Music’ Canada 1983, Pilooski edits Double ‘Woman Of The World’ Switzerland 1984, Pittsburgh Track Authority edits Step By Step ‘I Always Wanted To Be In A Band’ Milwaukee 1976, Pontchartrain edits Gwen McRae ‘Keep The Fire Burning’ NYC 1982, and The Popular Peoples Front edits Fela Kuti ‘Roforofo Fight’ Nigeria 1972.

May 2, 2023

The 12th week of the non-rock 12″ singles played alphabetically series covers the letters N, O & P. Today I notice the wide berth this series is parking in, covering dance [Joey Negro Vs. Horse Meat Disco, Henri-Pierre Noël], international [Ogoya Nengo And The Dodo Women’s Group], hip hop [N8NOFACE], Japanese [9dw], experimental/electronic [Nisennenmondai, Om Unit], Polish [Noon]. Dark ambient [O Yuki Conjugate], balearic [Pacific Horizons] and that is only talking about the first hour. As usual, there are many re-edits. These are the ones I can identify the source material of: The Patchouli Brothers edits MFSB ‘Plenty Good Lovin’ 1976 from Philadelphia, Parlour edits Sådd ‘Johnny Gitarr’ 1979 from Sweden. Not a re-edit, but maybe my fave track of the show is The Parallax Corporation (a duo that includes Intergalactic Gary) ‘Anti Social Tendencies’.
