Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

i had it on heavy rotation for a long time
Avatar 2:03pm Ursula1000:

ah thanks for reminding me...I have an "ungawa" surprise for all the Jungle Room DJs in the works this weekend---keep ya posted...
Avatar 2:04pm ARB:

yes, surprise us!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Mr Fab:

Hey hey all. It's tough for songs about winter to not get absorbed into the Christmas canon. It's like, after Dec 25, you can't play "Jingle Bells," "Winter Wonderland," "Let it Snow" etc anymore, even tho THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRISTMAS!
Avatar 2:07pm Ursula1000:

I believe I managed to escape Santa's claws w/ these tracks. this set is about me freezing my butt after spending the holidays in Miami!
  2:11pm Martinibomb:

@fab good point @u1k can’t wait for the Ungawa surprise.. I should work on a tshirt design
Avatar 2:11pm Ursula1000:

OK...THIS one is definitely Xmas-y...but I swear the others aren't! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

another heavy rotation from my adolescence. Love Alison Moyet!

i still have my tattered and battered copy
  2:24pm Martinibomb:

Love August Darnell great producer
  2:25pm Martinibomb:

Ive been listening to doc buzzard again recently hitting the spot
Avatar 2:25pm ARB:

Winter on Riverside Drive? I live on Riverside Drive
Avatar 2:26pm Ursula1000:

haha no way!
Avatar 2:26pm Ursula1000:

MB yeah Augustus Darnell aka Kid Creole/Gichy/Don Armando...such killer stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Mr Fab:

There's a Riverside Drive here in the Valley - I was just on it earlier today. Honestly, it wasn't too exciting.

that was Kid Creale?! Did not know about this earlier phase of his career. I thought he went from Dr Buzzard to the Coconuts.
  2:29pm Martinibomb:

@fab he produced a bunch of side projects for ZE I think Gichy led toKid Creole
Avatar 2:30pm Ursula1000:

he was the in house producer for a lot of the early Ze Records stuff like Cristina, Coati Mundi
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

this Bangles version sounds way better to me now than it did when it came out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Rich in Washington:

That's funny. I was just reading about Darnell/Kid Creole the other day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Mr Fab:

ok weird, I have (and have had, for ages) ZE's "A Christmas Record" featuring that song, but it's credited to 'August Darnell', not Gichy Dan. Wonder if it's the same recording? Must admit, haven't played it in forever.
Avatar 2:34pm Ursula1000:

there's a clip on YT of Kid Creole playing like at the Ritz in NY in 1981 that's to die for---If I had a time machine that'd be one of my settings
Avatar 2:44pm Ursula1000:

had to sneak in a little 4AD in here via UVS. RIP Vaughan Oliver.
  2:45pm Martinibomb:

Ive seen those creole clips u mentioned yep wish we coulda been there. Last time I checked he was doing cruise ship performances
Avatar 2:47pm Ursula1000:

I'm sure Prince caught a couple of shows and got inspired w his own live show. had a similar revue vibe.
Avatar 2:47pm Sem:

It must be the winter...with dis content.
Hello, U1K, and all.

Avatar 2:52pm Sem:

Got it, GST.
All good where you are, I trust.
  2:53pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for the tunes today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Mr Fab:

if this isn't the Sisters of fMercy, they should sue!
Avatar 2:55pm Ursula1000:

Avatar 2:55pm Ursula1000:

yeah has a Sisters/Andrew Eldritch vibe
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Otis Fodder:
