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.

You Blew It  

 The Mad Lads were a legendary Memphis sweet soul group that had a string of R&B hits in the sixties, recording on Stax fir a while. After two of the key members got drafted things sort of fell apart and the group's fortunes declined until eventually they broke up in the seventies.

 At some point in the mid eighties, former member John Williams put a version of the group back together again to play shows on the revival circuit, they even put out a couple of records in the run up to the nineties including this single re-mixed by Memphis boogie maestro Willie McClain.
