Roll the dice.  

So I dropped the ball with the Halloween post that never materialized. I was going to put up, 'Fear' by Easy Going, but that was hardly an inspired imaginative stretch, so you didn't miss out too much.

I was out of town all weekend in Las Vegas. I managed to get away from the strip and go digging around some of the local record stores, it was a pleasant surprise. Record City has at least 5 or 6 stores, the two I went to were in beyond thunderdome, desert town empty strip mall neighborhoods and were within a couple of blocks of one another. An impressively fucked up looking pimp got upset at me walking up and down between the two, past his girls on the corner with my records, acting strange. He had blood seeping from a bandaged hand and one of his lady friends hissed at me. It was well worth it, as three decades of gigging casino club DJ's and local hopefuls had left these spots laden with awesome 12"s.

This track comes out of my weekend haul. On the excellent Amherst records, like Kelley's previous post, Funn by Gunchback Boogie Band, this 1984 synthy funk monster was also produced by Anthony T. Johnson. Awesome and hard hitting..

    oh wow man!
    i've been looking for this track since the mid-80's. First time I've heard it was in Toronto, Canada, at a really nice club/lounge called Bel Air Cafe off of Yorkville Street. Heard it few more times here and there but never knew who/what this track was. And now here it is on Beat Electric.

    Thank you Black Shag!
    Thank you Beat Electric!!
