Killer Moon  


  Here is another indie '80s soul record to file in the M.J. impersonator section along with Alfonzo and Michael Sterling. Timothy Marrow's self released Killer Moon sounds like it was recorded in an afternoon with a borrowed synth and drum machine. Every little mistake and looseness in the meandering bass line is captured in its full glory over a basic drum loop. Timothy's vocals tread dangerously close to copying the flow of Billie Jean. A recipe for a killer track if I've ever heard one.

    Terrible Milwaukee record, but an amazing artifact of the era. The Key - Traffic Violator, is also produced by Timothy Marrow, and much better. Glad you posted this!

    Here's the dance mix. I find it better to mix with.

    In terms of MKE records, T. Marrow can't touch Todd & Terry. Dave & Dogtones, what do you think of that one?

    Mister Jeremy, I agree 1000%. That Todd & Terry- Don't Fall (Night Mix) is the shit! I was fortunate enough to find that in a dollar bin a couple years ago. People sleep on that record.

    Jeremy, I totally agree, that Todd & Terry - Don't Fall (night Mix) is amazing. It's waaay better and really slept on. I found it in a dollar bin a couple years ago, didn't know it before that.

    Awesomely horrible. I'm going to enjoy inflicting this on my nearest and dearest - thank you!
