BEARDO DISCO (finally fixed for vahid) - not idjuts / lindstrom - harvey, rub'n'tug, map of africa

there's no doubt a zeitgeist/parallel thing that's gone on the last few years, with bearded free-folk revival, folktronica and Jane, the post-No Neck MIke Love-looking jam bands, and the Afro-Cosmic Italo scene. Lindstrom and co. are equal parts Metro Area disco-continuum and bearded hippie disco a-la Harvey down to Rub-n-Tug. It's all very happening and pretty exciting, I think - Dan Selzer

did you know thomas bullock (of rub'n'tug, map of africa) was a founding member of BOTH a.r.e. weapons AND the wicked crew SF (w/ jeno, garth, markie mark)?!?!

anyway this is the thread where dan selzer tells us about bearded hippie disco

things we don't know like

what is WHATEVER WE WANT records all about?

who are BOBBIE MARIE, QUIET VILLAGE PROJECT and OTTERMAN EMPIRE? are they also dj harvey + thomas bullock?

also where can one find the FRAGMENTS OF FEAR (mixed w/ blood by quiet village project) cdr?

I'm just an innocent bystander, don't know much about any of it, particularly the new stuff. Personally, some of it leans towards the krautrocky spectrum and I like that and some it leans towards the hippie spectrum and I like that less. There's a lot of re-discovery/digging going on through unexplored territories of late 70s early 80s stuff all with that Cosmic vibe to it, much of it stuff you'd initially dismiss as cheesy, like Bumrocks hosting a Kim Carnes extended version and being like, wow, that's amazing. I just feed off what my once alldisco partner jeremy digs out of dj history forum. And being who I am, it's still easier to pick up random used records then keep up with the records you are talking about, which aren't easy to come by, or cheap.

I really want the Rub 'n' Tug mix on Eskimo, it looks so ace, t'll probably be my next purchase (how much of a roll are Eskimo on with their mixes eh? Off topic question for all & sundry: is the Chromeo mix any good?).

I've heard Harvey talked about round here but I think the only thing I have of his is a great remix of Extended Family's "Ulysses" from back in the day (er, 1998). On a Jon Carter mix so I had long assumed he made hard-edged tribal house or something. Would his Ministry of Sound mix be the one to get or is that too old to be representative?

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Friday, 13 January 2006 23:34 (eleven years ago) Permalink

saw a bootleg comp. a couple days ago with six of these type of tracks, several of which had been on Bumrocks.com within the past year. Can't remember exactly what was on it .... Klaus Weiss "Dirt Track" was one ...

anyway it was called Musica Obscura presents Cosmic Disco. I thought the sound quality was maybe a little iffy, though. I didn't buy it.

Renard (Renard), Friday, 13 January 2006 23:36 (eleven years ago) Permalink

okay then here's my problem: number one, i don't see much of a connection with this stuff (other than beards) (and maybe weed and pbr) and freak folk and other current trendzzz. (but that just might be because i hate hippies.) (except for raving hippies.) secondly, isn't this just the next wave of dance-rock, except with soft rock and prog and whatnot replacing post-punk? third, isn't this just a continuation of previous disco (not disco) activity (cf. steve miller band on first comp)? and doesn't that just make it larry levan playing krautrock? (possible actual connection to previous gen of dance-rock: delia and gavin.) (search your heart, you know it to be true.) that said, i absolutely adore what little i've heard, especially quiet village. so with that in mind, i think we should rename this thread yacht house. (because, all respect to dan, i think the linkage is sartorial at best.)

dj harvey hasn't done anything representative of his current style except a couple of CDr mixes for LA streetwear labels (one for freshjive and one for sarcastic).

his current sound is sort of like theo parrish meets joey negro or something. he runs towards the spacier, murkier, more deconstructed end of the disco re-edits spectrum. like an andrew weatherall (circa rehab, mid 90s sabres sound) type take on the idjut boys re-edits sound.

i LOVE the rub'n'tug mix on eskimo. as much or more than the dj naughty mix! it's similar in vibe to the glimmers dj kicks mix, except w/ much more vintage stuff and much less current stuff.

it's also way noisier than you'd expect, in the "noise annoys" sense. the opening track is like full-on tribal drumming a la 23 skiddoo or something. lots of the other tracks are tweaked w/ filters or played too loud into the red (very much like theo parrish does on his live mixes, but w/ more abrasive source material the end result is ... quite bracing!)

anyway to repeat: i LOVE the rub'n'tug mix!

vahid (vahid), Friday, 13 January 2006 23:47 (eleven years ago) Permalink

xpost - you are totally right!! i meant to title the thread BEARDO DISCO. at this point i use "house" almost interchangeably w/ "mixed music people dance to in clubs that isn't hip-hop".

could a mod maybe change the thread title to BEARDO DISCO, especially since i think we are (inevitably, since even so much of the "new" stuff is covers and re-edits, see map of africa) going to swerve into a discussion of vintage beardo disco, sooner or later.

vahid (vahid), Friday, 13 January 2006 23:49 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Yeah, the Rub'n'Tug mix is GREAT. In the fucking red, mistakes all over the place, stupid built in mixer fx over the top, fucking Cozy Powell on the track list etc. Really fun.

Chromeo mix is like it's polar opposite - anal, neat 80s stuff. Exactly as you think it'd sound. (Although I've only listenen d to it once so far so I may be wrong)

Out of the two I'd say go for the R'n'T first.

What's the Map Of Africa "Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys" like? I love the Equals original version (although "Stand Up and be Counted" is the best Equals track - why's no-one ever talk about that?)

Raw Patrick (Raw Patrick), Saturday, 14 January 2006 00:01 (eleven years ago) Permalink

yes I bought both of those Cosmic Disco bootlegs. They don't sound great, but good enough! Some very cool stuff on those though.

Are there any stores in the US that stock this stuff? I know me and everyone I talk to in NY orders from Flexx and Picadilly and the like.

"i LOVE the rub'n'tug mix on eskimo. as much or more than the dj naughty mix! it's similar in vibe to the glimmers dj kicks mix, except w/ much more vintage stuff and much less current stuff."

Yeah this sounds like exactly what I was hoping for. I like the way that all these different Eskimo-related comps seem like stars that form different parts of a larger constellation, each distinct and individual but forming part of a larger vision/mission.

With Campfire I'm imagining something like a more a rustic version of the awesome peak in The Glimmers' DJ Mix that goes "Feel Like I Feel" --> "Impi (Dub)" --> "The Groove Machine (Idjut Boys Mix)" --> "Cassette". Is that off-base?

"Are there any stores in the US that stock this stuff?"

not sure if you're talking about the bootlegs or the newer stuff, but I saw the Cosmic Disco boot at Mondo Kim's

some other related but not quite beardo stuff like Lee Douglas (Rong), Padded Cell, Emperor Machine I've found at Turntablelab. I guess that's more like the "idjuts / lindstrom" side of things. I'm not 100% clear on where the line is being drawn here.

Dominique...you should see the flyers I just got from Jeremy at Alldisco. 170 freaking flyers of Cosmic parties in italy.

The thing I love so much about Cosmic is that it represents a similarly broad taste in music and a sort of meaningful eclecticism that I always try to put into my DJ sets. The ability to play weird new wave records mixed with classic disco, african percussion, italo etc and create this vibe is just so beautiful. Gomma doesn't seem to be hosting the mixes anymore, so I'll YSI one or two.

Lee Douglas starts his new party tonight with Duane from Other Music. Basically, we killed off Alldisco and split saturdays at Capones with past guests/friends. 1 saturday a month will be Jeremy who started Alldisco, one will be Duane and Doug, 1 will Be Dan Balis and Eugene Cho (Dan has house records out and I think plays on the Lee Douglas record, as well as one of the Metro Area 12"s) and I forget who gets the last saturday.

also, Flexx is hosting the Tutu mix, which I first heard a year or two ago when talk turned to Cosmic on another mailing list. It was unclear if it was a vintage mix or new, but it definately has the Cosmic vibe and features a few cosmic classics.

going bakc to whatever we want records, there have been seven releases so far -

2 quiet village 12"s. i'm not so hot on these. quiet village is matt from radio slave and joel martin.

2 map of africa 12"s. both of these are great with 'dirty lovin' of the first one being a particular fave. as far as i know, map of africa is thomas bullock and harvey though i heard the second one doesn't feature harvey. 'black skin blue eyed boys' sounds as if a young lemmy is doing the singing

2 bobbie marie 7"s. bobbie marie is thomas and some other guy. the first 7" is a really stoopid punk funk track with lots of farmyard noises. the second one has a great track on it that sounds a bit like suicide jamming with the gun club.

the last releases is by otterman empire and is a re edit thingie with a doors edit on one side and a dire straits on the other!

i keep hearing how hard these are to pick up but they seem to have reasonably good distribution in the uk.

3. Jungle Wonz-The Jungle
4. Chicken Lips-Sweet Cow (Lindstrom Mix)
5. Greenman-Discotheque (Soul Jazz)
6. Kohib-Truger (Beat Service)
7. Black Dice-Smiling Off (Luomo Mix) (DFA)

I'm just waiting for someone to make their career by doing a really killer José González remix, something really thick-sounding and warm, like Junip I guess but obviously with actual beats, warm fat acousticy synths that wash over you, folktronic tracks that set the stage for the bigtime toms, or something.

Also, someone should mashup "Maps" with some José G, somehow, and make us lame indie kids' year.

the quiet village records are all re-edits btw. it's been discussed at length on djhistory. some people slightly miffed that it's packaged more like original material. my fav, pillowtalk is alan parsons i forget who else.

some of my favorite unexpected things that have popped up on the cosmic mixes from the tiscali site:

jj cale at 45
dave mason - wervin' (with r. wyatt on vocals) (you can dl another track from that lp as my track of the day at the newly minted http://www.dreamchimney.com/tracks/profile/captain it'll be up 'til monday). there's a few other dudes on there that post some great stuff if you don't know.
art of noise - paranoia
papa's got a brand new pigbag at 33

as far as that campfire mix, i guess it's kind of "rad" that they left all their crap mixes and skips and yanking all the volume levels up and down in there, but it's pretty unlistenable to my ears. they play some great stuff, no doubt, but it doesn't have much continuity for home listening. i'm sure it was a different story if you were there and i'm sure those guys could give a fuck...

i much prefer the piles of baldelli and loda mixes currently on my hd (courtesy of the tiscali site, where all the flyers came from). check out baldelli's interview at
http://www.redbullmusicacademy.com/LECTURERS.95.0.html too. great stuff.

the capone's saturday schedule now is as follows:

1st saturday: k. life walks + friends - tons of connects in the mid-late 80's miami bass scene. him and a bud did the tape edits on the beat club "security". nowadays he plays sweet disco and club classics.

2nd saturday (tonight) get into somethin' w/doug lee aka lee douglass + duane (negroclash). plus twilite tone and a live performance by black spade this week.

3rd saturday me (jeremy campbell) + guests. this week matt radune.

4th saturday: cabaret featuring escort (dan balis, eugene cho and darius mahgen who have a record coming out on environ). darshan from metro area plays with them this month.

Oh, very cool! Thanks for linking that video. That's my friend / Roger's GF Leimomi digging at the thrift shop. :)

"The Real Thang", released by Tony Joe White on Casablanca Records in 1980. Was torn between posting this here or on the balearic beach thread, but I feel like it's got much more of a beardo edge - would be surprised if there haven't already been edits. It's a pretty great album, he manages to fuse his swampy country persona with Disco sheen in a very organic way.
