Just a mix of retro home-grown talent tonight. The first is a single from Supergroove – Sitting Inside My Head (1994). Ché-Fu, their lead singer left to pursue a reasonably successful local career.
Ché-Fu: Fade Away (2001). This is a fun track and cracks me up often cos the bros look to be having a hoot producing this video. Who says cosplay is meant for conventions? 🙂
Next up is some DnB (Drum and Bass). Shapeshifter is another local group that had minor success internationally and were big locally. One of my favourite tracks, The Ride (2006). Memorable picture. As someone commented, that picture makes you want to become an astronaut.
Another Shapeshifter track – One. Sometimes, I like to watch the news and talk shows whilst listening to my favourite music; that way I get the best of both visual and aural treats. Enjoy your day/night.
One more – roots style. Fat Freddy’s Drop is another favourite of mine of late. My brother introduced me to them. Roots music is strong back home and has been modified to suit local tastes and incorporates a number of styles.
This song is often associated with them and is fine although having a club underneath a fish n chip shop always had me laughing. The guy with the goatee was with the group – on and off – for a number of years. He played saxophone. He was also a founding member of Trinity – another roots band – which disbanded beforehand.
Song is Wandering Eye( 2001). FFD has a world-wide following, strong and loyal but definitely not mainstream. Pity really when you think about it.
