Fergus & Geronimo Release New LP!

Fergus & Geronimo are two fellas from Denton who moved to Brooklyn, whatever. You don’t need to know the migratory habits of the people behind the instruments to feel down right righteous when you plug in your stereo and jam their new long player, Funky was the State of Affairs. A record which may at first baffle, but soon reward those who believe in the transcendental power of paranoia. Paranoia isn’t the only thing going on here; This record is awash with themes both silly (intergalactic love affairs) and serious (cloned drones). As for its sound, just think of the most far out Devo record that could ever possibly be imagined and then add some sax.

Headed Home

After living in the former Soviet territory of Ukraine for over two years I’m headed home. To commemorate this earth shaking occasion I made a mix on that very theme and named it ‘Headed Home.’ I don’t yet know what else I will listen to on my 4 flights that will span a full day, but at least I have 17 full minutes planned and accounted for. In the traditional Friday Feel style, it consists of 5 songs all recorded as one long track. And the winners are;

1. M. Ward – To Go Home (Daniel Johnston Cover)
2. Smith Casey & Roger Gill – When I Git Home
3. Brian Eno & David Byrne – Home
4. Wooden Wand – Dogpaddlin’ Home in Line with My Lord
5. Simon & Garfunkel – Keep the Customer Satisfied

Форум on the Porch

Forum was formed in the spring of 1983 in St. Petersburg. Sasha Morozov was responsible for the band’s formation; in the Lou Pearlman tradition, he got all of these dudes together who played different instruments who otherwise didn’t know each other, but unlike Pearlman, Morozov knew what he was doing as will be evident when you listen to the tracks below. For those of you looking forward to O-Town harmonies, well, the world is not with you. The year after their formation they released their debut album, pictured above, White Night. The following songs are from that album. Have a listen! 

Mp3: Форум – Белая Hoчь (White Night)

Mp3: Форум – Давайте Созвонимся (Let’s Phone)

Центр on the Porch

‘Center’ was formed during the late ’70s in Moscow behind the Iron Curtain. Much of the world’s inhabitants, including their fellow comrades in the Soviet Union, were never made aware of such formation and subsequent rocking the group would go on to do. Oh boy, what a tragedy! Now, to amend that, I recommend that you listen to the tracks below. Such flippancy, such playfulness, such cool bass licks. The gems below were released in 1983. 

Mp3: Центр – Умный (Smart)

Mp3: Центр – Навсегда (Forever)
