We Got One (A Show) (Instrumental)
I was in my soon to be hometown Madrid earlier this year, and my buddies and me went to the Kathmandu club one night to see if we could still do them crazy dance moves. There was a guy spinning the most insane funk tunes I had heard in a long time. He was wearing a T-shirt that said “Happily married” and he was playing 45s only, which he kept in a beautiful wooden case. I went up to him to thank him for a great night and to ask for his email address – I wanted to try to convince my boss to book him for one of the funk nights we do at da club. Normally they don’t really listen to our suggestions, but you never know, right? The DJ turned out to be Gu, the man running Our Label Records. He gave me two 45s as a present, bless him, one by the Magnificent Freedom and this one. As expected, I didn’t succeed at getting him booked at da club, and now that I’m leaving I don’t think it’ll ever happen.
Osaka Monaurail are playing in Madrid in November. Unfortunately we won’t move there until the end of the month so I won’t be able to see them, but I’d love to. If only to see with my own eyes that the singer is really Japanese and not someone looking a lot like James Brown.
But wait, there always YouTube:
