QUINTRON & MISS PUSSYCAT - Not Good Enough/Pink Panther Theme 7”WackyWacko/Rhinestone
Yes, Q and Miss P’s got a new 7” out. Seems to be a co-release between Wacky Wacko and their own Rhinestone label. Sleeveless but comes in pink (panther) vinyl. A-side’s the original and I must admit that it didn’t grab me at first. It’s kinda slow and andt I thought it wasn’t much of a hit and that’s the kind of thing you want on a 7” from Quintron. But with repeated listens it soon dawned on me how catchy the chorus really is and after a while you start to groove with the slow tempo. It’s the kind of song where you want a video with one cool girl who walks through the neighbourhood and more and more people join her until they’re a cool gang. In slow motion. Know what I mean? It’s that great. The flippety-flop is a jazzy organexquisite take on the Pink Panther theme. Tada-da-da-da-da etc. I’ve been to two parties (one in New Orleans and one in Stockholm) where the crowd grooved to this already so you know you need it if you wanna be hip. Brah!
THE ROYAL PENDLETONS - First Recordings Vol 1 the 1990s 7” Allons
Oh yeah, baby! This is supposed to be the Pendletons first recordings from ‘92 or ‘93. 20 years ago! How many times have we (thee Savage bros.) blasted the “Sore Losers” 7” and people have gone crazy. King Louie behind the drum kit. Those were the days! Even before we got onto the scene. Anyways, these recordings were thought to be destroyed, at least that’s what it says on the sleeve. On the first side they do a highly spirited take of “Double Shot Of My Baby’s Love” and b-side is a raw version of “What A Way To Die”. The Royal Pendletons were the ultimate frat party band and I for one woldn’t have mind having been at a party in an old victorian house in New Orleans in the early 90’s watching the Pendletons tear it up like they do here. This is New Orleans history ladies and gentlemen! (Martin)
