– Well, as you can see we got three trumpets, four trombones, five reeds, a guitar, bass piano and of course you can’t help noticing the ten strings.
– That really looks like a band for dancing!
– I hope so Gene.
I might have said this before, but of all the mixes that there ever has been to come out of the good ship iyrie!, this is one of my favourites. It starts out in a northern 90s Weekender vibe, takes in a bit of sterling old school hip hop and even some snippets of Adam Ant before the big band moves on up through the gears to the unlikely but surprising convincing mix-up of Crazy Horses and and Stakker Humanoid (yes, really). Before you know it there’s a slice of De la Soul and some classic (and I do not use the word lightly here) early house tunes. After we have a quick tongue in cheek look at the revolution being televised, it’s all downhill with some deep and dirty house and techno.
