Click here to watch short video of the recording session of this 12-inch single at my home-studio.

Although Hey DJ was released in 1984, but the first time I’ve heard and bought it was in Christmas time 1986 in England. Lots of good tracks with similar sound and feel, like this one, were released at that time. Stellar production on this 12-inch single. As mentioned in the blog/post previous to this one,  Doug Wimbish on the bass and bass-synthesizers; Keith LeBlank on the drums; and synth & drum machine programming by Jack Waldman, Clifton Chase and Craig Peyton. Although Stephen Hague produced this track, Malcolm McLaren was somehow involved heavily in Hey DJ (check out the music video below).

Worlds Famous Supreme Team

The production on this LP is stellar. Doug Wimbish on the bass and bass-synthesizers; Keith LeBlank on the drums; synth & drum machine programming by Jack Waldman, Clifton Chase and Craig Peyton; background vocals by Divine; there’s even a five-member horn section; and the list goes on. One of the tracks is even produced by Malcolm McLaren (“Hey DJ“).

I decided to post Misery because of how it sounds. Nice keyboard layers. It’s an emotional track produced by Bradshaw Leigh. Even though the title of this track may seem like a downer, but in fact the track is very powerful, uplifting and inspirational in the positive direction.

I used to walk around Toronto and London a lot back in the day while listening to Misery on my walkman. The track’s powerful note and chord progressions served as the driving soundtrack to the vivid visuals which I’ve imagined/created in my head, going through my own kind of transcendental and meditational real-life montage. If I remember correctly, there were few images of beautiful faces from pretty women going through my mind, like a music video in slow motion. Heh, I was only 15 years old!

Doug Wimbish (featuring Fats Comet)…

Previously blogged about Doug Wimbish on September 18, 2009 (click here to read)

Title: Don’t Forget That Beat
Year: 1985
Genre: Electronic Funk Drumbeat Industrial
Comment: Doug Wimbish is one bad-ass bassist. He collaborated with Fats Comet on this track. Both are from the UK. Their sound is like Art Of Noise meets Africa Bambaattaa meets Ministry (of 1985 sound).

I’m trying out a new format:

  1. First, I’ll pick two rare records from my vinyl collection.
  2. Second, I’ll record my voice through the vocoder, “Presented by Hashmoder.”
  3. Third, I’ll record the two records straight to MP3. Simple, quick and fierce. This way I can post blogs on Schitz more quickly and to the point.

From the private stash of my awesome vinyl collection, I present to you Chubb Rock and Fats Comet, below:
