Cheers fella, recently got into electro in a big way. Detroit scene was heavily influenced by Kraftwerk and Sun Ra's Afro futurism. Fascinating stuff, amazingly well produced and great to listen to on a decent system from the comfort of ones sofa ( my clubbing days are behind me, alas). There's a good feature on YouTube " Why  Drexciya took Detroit electro underwater" if you're interested

They are excellent aren't they Woody. A bunch of white Aussies making great soul music!

Looking forward to the new album in August

Oh aye,I'm on it Laird,first single Too Real was a corker,love the new one too. The Fall,A House and various other influences going on but ultimately a crackin wee band for sure.

Ian,

Yes really like the Teskey's,maybe don't look/dress the part like others but good stuff none the less.

Like Woody, I think they're fantastic Laird.

"Boys In The Better" land is a great single too. I'm also a big fan of Idles - coming from Bristol is obviously a massive bonus for them!

This rocksteady candy is due for april, so obviously not listening to it yet, but I don't think lovers of the genre will be disappointed, especially given that most of the tracks are produced by legend Sonia Pottinger and are on the obscure side. If you add its companion 2CD comp, dedicated mainly to Roland Alphonso's instrumental sides (out in march), it's being a good year for rocksteady fans out there:



More Sonia Pottinger's 66-67 stuff coming soon (BTW "ABC Rocksteady" is GREAT,as expected):



Just the Valentines' "Guns Fever" would be worth the price of admission alone, but given that rocksteady is the peak (imho) of jamaican popular music, you can't fail with this one.

Oh, and for those interested in Northern Soul, this Purify bros comp (guess they're not real brothers) will be of interest:



More rocksteady gems on the way, courtesy of Cherry Red/Doctor Bird. This time it's Derrick Morgan, one of the true greats of Jamaican music, who's having his mid-60s work and productions on his own label reissued:

Good news too for fans of cult movie "Get Carter" and/or Roy Budd soundtracks:
