A Little Christmas Jumpin’

Jumpin 24

Here’s a little Christmas gift – the best thing about it being there are almost no bloody Christmas songs on it (The Staple Singers got through the filter because IT’S THE BLOODY STAPLE SINGERS AND THEY CAN DO WHAT THEY WANT).

So when the turkey is just a hollowed-out carcass that the dog is eyeing greedily, everyone has fallen out and you’re drunk out of your tiny mind on snowballs and sherry, stick this mix on. Have a dance, have another drink and by the time it slips into the slow, melancholy, quiet section at the end, you’ll be collapsing into a carb-fuelled slumber anyhow.

There’s a couple of tracks from the newish Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has been blowing my tiny mind, and something from the imminent new Stick In The Wheel album. Otherwise it’s the usual blend of tunes that I’ve been listening to a lot lately.

  1. Preservation Hall Jazz Band – Mad
  2. Bunny Sigler – Let The Good Times Roll
  3. Elvis Presley – Crawfish
  4. Ann Sexton – It’s All Over Bar The Shouting
  5. The Staple Singers – Who Took The Merry Out Of Christmas?
  6. Hollie Cook – Superstar
  7. Joe Tex & U Black – Rub-A-Dub Evening
  8. Huey Piano Smith – Little Liza Jane
  9. Lito Barrientos – Cumbia En Do Menor
  10. Dan Sartain – Besame Mucho
  11. The Coasters -Three Cool Cats
  12. The MarKeys – Last Night
  13. Earl Harrison – Humphrey Stomp
  14. Elsie Wheat – Tippin’
  15. James Hunter Six– Light Of My Life
  16. The Megatons – Shimmy Shimmy Pt 1
  17. Nick & The Jaguars -Ichi-bon #1
  18. The Liverbirds – He’s About A Mover
  19. Aretha Franklin – Niki Hoeky
  20. Bobbie Gentry – Thunder In The Afternoon
  21. PP Arnold – Brand New Day
  22. Preservation Hall Jazz Band – One Hundred Fire
  23. Art Neville – Bo Diddley
  24. Howlin’ Wolf – Dorothy Mae
  25. Chubby Checker – Misirlou
  26. Prince Jazzbo – Penny Reel
  27. Johnny Clarke – Poor Marcus
  28. The Como Mamas – Out Of The Wilderness
  29. Sister Goldia Haynes Choir – The Truth Is In The Gospel
  30. Stick In The Wheel – Over & Over
  31. Uncle Tupelo – Acuff-Rose
  32. Hank Williams – Ramblin’ Man
  33. The Famous Times – The Blue Man
  34. Flying Burrito Brothers – Hot Burrito #1
  35. Mary Gauthier – I Drink
  36. The Deslondes – She’d Better Be Lonely
  37. Howe Gelb – Impossible Thing
  38. Moondog – All Is Loneliness
  39. Sonny Sharrock – Who Does She Hope To Be?

Riddim!

riddim frog pondback copy

Before we get round to the next Jumpin’ With Stagger Lee at Ernest on April 29th, there’s the small matter of Riddim!

Taking its cue from a night of the same name I put on at Brixton Windmill sometime in the last decade, Riddim! is a new night hoping to encompass a broad range of Jamaican music – from rocksteady to roots, dub to dancehall – in a non-elitist way, so that people who don’t consider themselves ‘reggae fans’ can come and dance to storming tunes by everyone from Alton Ellis to Althea & Donna, John Holt to Ini Kamoze, The Eternals to Sean Paul. But the selections will be all killer, no filler so the aficionados will love it too.

The night is at Ernest (of course!) on April 1st, and I’ll be joined by Rob Heron (Tea Pad Presents) and Billy Lyre (Ska’d For Life!). It’ll run from 9pm  – 2am and it’s absolutely FREE!

There’s a Facebook events page here.

So put on your dancing shoes and BOOGALOO!!

Jumpin’ #2

A bit late with this – Christmas malaise and all that – but I’m back at Ernest next weekend (Saturday 21st) for the second Jumpin’ With Stagger Lee.

It’ll be the same excellent blend of soul, rhythm & blues, reggae, funk, gospel, ska, psych and such as usual, and this time we’ll be joined by the mighty Giovanni Spatuzzi.

And I’ll definitely be playing this
