notes by Lloyd Ross:
While digitizing PCM tape 27 of the Shifty archive, I came across a live recording of the 1987 Free Peoples concert and thought, hmm, what a great window into the scene of those particularly depressing times. The Krokodil was still healthy and the tunnel looked as dark as ever…so what did the youth do? They partied! Inspired contributions can be heard on this hour-long podcast from Benny B’Funk & the Sons of Gadaffi Bar-Mitzvah Band, Simba Morri, Ian Fraser, the Cherry Faced Lurchers, the Spectres, the Genuines, Winston’s Jive Mixup, the Kêrels and the spectacularly out of place but brilliant Abstractions, Carlo Mombeli’s avant jazz outfit, featuring the guy that Al Di Meola rated as one of the world’s top guitar virtuosos, Johnny Fourie.
