The first pressing of this shot out. Now they are repressing it for a second and final time. A compilation of incredible and incredibly rare tracks selected by The Moon Hop’s resident DJ Stephen Marshall. Expect oddities covering protest pop, disco, funk and soul, definitely worth adding to the collection.
8/10 Jamie Staff review, 27 February 2017
Triassic Tusk are a little label run from twin outposts: the Highlands of Scotland and Fife. They’ve been putting on the Moon Hop nights in Edinburgh for the past year and have now selected a selection of fifteen tried-and-tested tunes for our delectation on two vibrant slabs of wax. Plenty of bangers / screamers -- many featuring a cosmic synth somewhere in the mix -- plus a whole lot of funk and good times to be had here. All the original 45’s are incredibly rare, naturally.
Too many highlights to mention here, but for starters there’s the explosive, drum-filled Brazilian soul of The Jones’ ‘Hey Mina’. Then there’s the frankly demented African funk and wah-wah guitar of John Malick and ‘Mon Histoire’. Big horns introduce and punctuate some solid drumming and Francis Guillon’s powerful vocals on the Northern Soul of ‘By My Side’. Cosmic synths from outer space make an appearance on Juan Pablo Torres’ ‘Nocturno Op. 1’ complete with chugging drums. There’s even proto-house on Steve Monite’s ‘Only You’. Truly a treasure trove, and plenty o’ (very) rare grooves to ensure much hopping on floors for many months to come.
