The Planet Doesn't Mind  

The Planet Doesn't Mind
is an electro boogie cover of a classic new wave track by British group New Musik featuring Tony Mansfield of the Nick Straker Band. X-Visitors Hail from the South Bay, California and had one other release on their own imprint Dancing Bear Records entitled Hokey Pokey. I found my copy at an outdoor $1 record blow out in Redwood City, warped and beat to shit. Now, I don't really have any desire to upgrade this one, but I got a good enough rip and find the mp3 to be a pleasent listen on my ipoon.

I just found a decent rip of Hokey Pokey floating around the internets, so I have included it here as a bonus.

    I remember this song coming out when I was in college. I lived in San Mateo, CA, and this song had fairly heavy rotation on KQAK ("The Quake") for a couple of weeks after its release. Dancing Bear Records was owned by Diane Dragon who also owned a 2-store chain of dance music record stores called "Star Records." One was in San Jose, the other in San Mateo.

    Do you put your 'metal leg in' or your 'middle leg in'?

    One more nerdy point...

    This group also became Rojas.

    Mexican High NR/Modern Soul. They also had two insanely rare singles on an imprint called AMB.

    Didn't she also own the Star Records in San Francisco? That was a great store...

    The New Muzik version was the most in demand thing in San Jose when it came out. There were mixtapes floating around with it, but nobody could get the record. I know because I couldn't either. Star Records couldn't get it in stock, so they decided to make their own version. I don't think either version was as big a hit anywhere else in the world besides San Jose, but I could be wrong about that. Definitely the biggest frenzy about a song I've ever witnessed in all my years of buying records. I used to work for Diane at Star Records in the late 80's as a teenager, but had been a faithful shopper there since I was a kid in the late 70's. RIP Star Records and Dancing Bear Records.
