Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

One of the key things that contributed to Cristina's debut being one of the greatest pop records of the Eighties was the perfect disco backdrop she was lent by August Darnell, known in his day job as Kid Creole. Any mention of Kid Creole & The Coconuts will almost certainly bring to mind Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy, with one of the most brilliantly poisonous lines in music history - "you see, if i was in your blood, then you wouldn't be so ugly". It's a song that deserves more than to just sit alongside dross like 10cc's Dreadlock Holiday in the list of records to play on Radio 2 when the weather's nice.

Aside from his work with Monet, his finest moment might well have been Machine's There But For The Grace Of God - one of the most exceptional records of the disco era. The message, that socially conservative parents who move out of the Bronx to find somewhere "with no blacks, no Jews and no gays" will inevitably end up raising an overweight, drug-addled strumpet is quite fun too.
