Next week two MONSTERS of soul music unleash new LPs at The Corner Hotel.
The funky SASKWATCH have just released “Nose Dive” and then you have COOKIN’ ON 3 BURNERS who releasing “Blind Bet”. Both albums will reach their funky tentacles out to the world. Go to both, or at least go to one. But do not go to nada or you will answer to me…..
The Cookin Show has a massive line up, from BBoys to DJ’s and many surprise vocalists. Get Down to get down.
WHEN FOOTY GOT FUNKY
last weekend was the RECLINK COMMUNITY CUP. Thanks to all who came down it was an awesome day again with Reclink making heaps of money to help fund their programs for the upcoming year. The footy was fun, but the true victory on the day was the unearthing of the photo (seen at the top!) of Nicky “Elvis” Winmar and James Brown. This came from Paul Stewart (singer from the Painters and Dockers) who was working as a journalist at the time and helped persuade James to meet up with Nicky. After telling James about the stand Nicky took at Victoria Park in 1993 against racism he was more than happy to meet with him.
That’s right, another LIVE INSTORE at Northside! In fact, we have several planned for upcoming months so stay tuned. This time Northside Records is proud to host the magic that is REMi. A young Northsider who is making big waves. REMi is about to drop his new album “Raw X Infinity” and will be showcasing the new tunes right here! This will be one of those times as you will be able to say you saw him back when.. .
The instore kicks off around 2pm and will also feature a YOUNG EZY, a prize winner from AFRICA’S GOT TALENT. Young Ezy will be performing the song ‘Aspire’ that made heads turn at AGT. Northside DJs and friends will be keeping it HIP HOP all day long. Word.
You might think its easy running a soul record store. Well, think again. Sometimes the job entails that you must travel the world spreading the soul word like cultured butter. That is just what we are doing! Incredible bands like THE BAMBOOS, SHAOLIN AFRONAUTS, OSCAR KEY SUNG and JONES JNR are going over to TOKYO this weekend to show the Japanese how we get down – down under.
Joining them will be two DJ’s JUMPS and myself, CHRIS GILL. We will be playing all local goodness and keeping the vibe alive. If you are in TOKYO – come and see what we got. There will be other events around this as well, with THURSDAY night there being an internet show. Log into http://www.dommune.com on thursday to check it!
Electronic goodness is alive and well in town. Not to mention a good movement as well. HANNAH SILVER is addicted to synths. A local equipment junkie, she channels 60′s electronica and propels it to today. Dig the dance – it is CRAB DANCES.
This week its a great day on Saturday! At 2pm. the MIGHTY
COOKIN’ ON 3 BURNERS
will launch their new 7″ featuring Dan Merriweather and Kylie Auldist.
Playing in store from 2pm catch this legendary Aussie soul trio. As a special treat we will be putting out the single with a LIMITED EDITION SLEEVE. We will only do 30 of the commemorative sleeves, so be quick.
