The Frankie Friday Music Thread.....RIP 07:01 - Apr 4 with 884688 viewsLblock

Here I am starting this from my recovery bed and no clue how to link tunes on an iPhone!

Will stick on my offerings from a PC later unless the other knuckles thread is the preference to use?

House classics and dancey dazzlers only, no hijacking from suicide rock please!

In the beginning there was jack.......

MONSTER TRACK!

Allow me, if you will, a further piece of personnel indulgence........
Love this Dub Mix


And when the original cover was done I loved it. Those cheeky Sheffield scamps.
As a teen I did have a more than passing interest in Moira Lambert who is the doris in the video and singer.


Was it really that many years ago that I had hair, an Express Yourself long sleeve baggy t-shirt (ripped off Express Dairy logo), baggy jeans and a pair of wallabies on?

Dont know whether this is cool or the right mix or whatever but I remember being in the place and it propper kicked ..Went on for ages I might be wrong but I'm sure he mixed in a bit of We are Family and The greatest dancer..
I was doing 'The Bump' with a bunch of good old Northern lasses down to the smoke..

I used to love Blaze. Their first album was called 25 years later and was a tribute to Motown. I only ever owned it on cassette until a couple of years ago when I picked up the CD version on ebay.

Worth checking out for any lovers of Deep House.

When I was at Mixmag 'our friends in the north' used to send us down tapes of the 808 State pirate radio show - read this to yourself in a Bez accent:

"This one goes out to the Salford posse...and the message is: "keep buzzin"...and what a top message that is!"

To be fair Mcr was on it early - I remember Mike Pickering playing at the opening of Trip at the Astoria and starting a north / south feud by saying "I don't know what all the fuss is about we've had this at the Hac for years!" - Mind you he could back his words up with this latino house monster that wipes the floor with anything he did with the bland M People



That was on that 'North' album that came out.
To be fair to the Hac they were into House a bit earlier than some of the London clubs but not by much.

Except I just spotted W14 beat me to it!!!

However, although I posted it on the other thread it needs to be on here as I think it is one of his best. This was the man himself under an alias.- Timeless.

... I didn't really realize what kind of void I left in house music when I stopped producing and remixing. In the late '90s when hard house, trance and techno took over, I was no longer inspired to make music. So I took my act on the road and thought that I would stay there until things got better. No one seemed interested in what I was doing as a producer. (Or so I thought.)
The further I got away from production, though, the more my health spiralled out of control. And, at that moment, Hercules & The Love Affair asked me to remix "Blind." They wanted "that classic Frankie Knuckles/DefMix" sound. I thought they must be kidding. No one was really playing anything remotely DefMix sounding. I passed on the remix, but they remained diligent. "I had to mix it" according to them. Then I took ill and thought, "OK, here's a way out." But the group said they'd wait until I was well. I didn't know how long that would be.
As soon as I got better and was ready to return to the road, they asked me again if I would remix it. At this point, they had waited six months, I had to do it. I pulled Eric Kupper in on programming, knocked out the mix and moved on. I was in Greece on tour when the record had been released. I didn't even know it was out there, but everyone was asking for it. I was blown away. Long story short, I have Hercules & The Love Affair to thank for getting me back to my first love. Correction, not my first love, my real love.

Frankie was famous when he was younger for mixing up all sorts of different styles, and that spirit was alive & well in the summer of 88 in London - it wasn't all acid squelches and uplifting vocals - you could still hear tracks like these in peak time in the main room:

Remember Nicky Holloway giving a drunken speech at Trip trying to justify why he played this - he needn't have bothered it took the roof off. The Woodentops were classic shoe-gazing mid 80s indie til main man Rolo discovered house



As I lived in Brixton that summer, I alternated between Trip and Planet Love at The Fridge on Sats (Mark Moore & Ian B) - this was played there weekly long before the William Hill ad ;) - of course the sirens helped



Meanwhile this was a staple at Spectrum - least it was at a couple of the early ones I went to - then Oakenfold sold out IMHO - as the queue got longer every week, loads of music industry nerds were swanning in on the guest list, leaving some of us who'd been there when it was half empty stuck outside...but I'll still never forget hearing this down there:

I was often in there mate. It was Jazzy Ms shop. He used to own that shop and have a House show on LWR every Tuesday night.

Well done on remembering the name!!

This was another favourite.
It cleverly mixed Queens vocals with a Simple Mind riff and a House beat.

It is all coming back to me now. Sigh...
