JAPAN – land of the rising FUNK!

Shin, manager of MOUNTAIN MOCHA KILIMANJARO stepped in this week to hand me some gooooodnes. Available at only 2 other stores WORLDWIDE the Japanese funk band MOUNTAIN MOCHA KILIMANJARO are a sensation. Their series of 7″s have been making waves around the world. One side original the other a cover it is a great way to make people dance.

I got the last copies in the world of the first in the series THE PREACHER / GET YOUR POINT OVER. The next in the series is the burner, the tune  that flew to number one on the Japanese jazz charts. Sure, it ain’t jazz, its super funky! STOMPIN JOE / TOO HIGH, thats right, the Stevie Wonder classic! Then there is the third which gets a little rockier WHAT SATISFIES YOU IF YOU CANT GET ENOUGH / EXODUS, yes a Bob Marley funk version. $14 EACH


Then get ready for some more, the drummer TIGER, or YOSUKE TOMINAGA has given Northside a rare priviledge, a WORDLWIDE EXCLUSIVE. His 45’s are NOT sold at shops, just his gigs in Japan, but a small number have found their way to Northside. These two 45’s are super heavy drum based funk joints. Almost library styles in their bigness. Just drums and bass, a few little surprises, but just the bigness…$15 EACH…only a handful left….
