For Ladies Only  

Not much is known about the foxy Merrilyn Fox other than this and the 12" of the same name are her only releases on Shiva Records. My comrade Dogtones, while searching for a copy of this for himself, did find an 80's Belgian porno mag with her in it. Unfortunately he did not purchase it and now who knows who is wanking it to nudes of Merrilyn Fox! This record is my jam , although the lyrics are very hard to understand due to her accent the synth game is strong. After countless listens, I have been able to deduce what this song is about. Basically, she plans on going to a show with her guy friend, they get dinner and some wine and its all good. He makes some moves on her and she isn't having it so she takes him to a club for ladies only and straight up friend zones him. Then the sweet synth kicks in and you're like what the fuck did I just listen to!? I still don't know if this track is about lesbians but if anyone can decipher the exact lyrics that would be awesome.

Givin' It Up  

For me, this is one of those jams that always gets my ass on the floor. I remember first getting exposed to this record by the Sweater Funk in the late 2000's. It immediately became one of those major "wants" and I searched for it incessantly! The time came where I found a copy and I was able to trade some rare "ALF" pogs and an eight ball slammer for it and my 7" collection got a major shot in the arm. I tried finding out more info about the band but info is pretty non existent other than their names. I did find another release by them, a 7" titled "You My Love" but it was terrible! Go ahead, look it up! It's got nothing on "Givin' It Up". It's  not even in the same league. Anyway, I have seen this sought after 7" pop up a few times since I got my hands on  it and if you're diligent I'm sure you can  score a copy. There is another jam on Biram by the Gibson Brothers called "My Hearts Beating Wild" that sounds proper aside from a cheesy chorus that is worth checking out. Oh yeah, and I'm deeply sorry for the lack of content on my part, I am in the process of getting my groove back!

 I was downtown and stopped by a spot on a whim whilst I was supposed to be doing something else entirely. It turned out to be worthwhile though, as I came up with this Timmy Regisford produced proto house dub that I had heard a couple of times over the years. I'm sorry for the slight crackle, the dub side of the record wasn't in the best of shape and was a little thrashed, but the vocal A side was pristine as though it had never been played, which makes sense as the vocal ain't all that and it was the dub that lit up the clubs.
