What’s more, I discovered in the meantime that the band is fronted by Quinn Luke, better known (to me at least) as Bing Ji Ling, a name I discovered through the Ubiquity’s Rewind series of covers complilations, where he had notably done a very cool cover of AC/DC’s (You Shook Me) All Night Long.
Now, I’ve read here and there that TIHCB were come kind of 70s revival band, but if you ask me, they are just doing an americanized (I mean that in a nice way) version of Cosmic Disco!
In other words: if you like the Handclap band and don’t know Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas, you need to get into them, and if you know L&PT but haven’t heard of the Handclap band yet, don’t waste any more time!
I admit I’d have a harder time picking a favourite solo MJ track, but if I was given no choice to do so, I’d say Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough, and a special mention to Scream for the amazing video (embedding disabled by request in both cases).
Now, I wonder what was Marie’s favourite MJ song, cuz now she can get a private show!
Je vais faire un petit effort pour pas effrayer les ayatollahs de la langue et du nationalisme en ce jour de Fête Nationale du Québec, alors j’écrirai mon billet quotidien de suggestion musicale in French.
Voici donc ma suggestion du jour:
Paul Piché, ce pilier du temple du 24 juin.
Toutefois, mon nationalisme à moi ne peux pas se contenter des nostalgiques versions du passé.
Alors voici pour vous, < ironie >Québécoises et Québécois de souche, francophones et adeptes du Nous inclusif!< / ironie >
Je vous laisse sur cette petite pensée de Marc Desjardins: «Il ne faudrait pas oublier que Saint-Jean-Baptiste est mort martyr, la tête coupée, en récompense pour une danse à 10… Il faut tout de même un brin d’auto-dérision ou de cynisme pour fêter le Québec ce jour-là…»
Among the others tracks that Anne-Caroline suggested were also favourites of Marie, are these two.
Marie loved Drum n’ Bass, so it comes as no surprise to me that she loved Music is the Key.
Break Night – The Mole People (1995)
The second one is one I remember they discovered through me in a club night where I was spinning.
Marie, Caro and I had our own level of understanding of music and Break Night, by Armand Van Helden under the moniker The Mole People, was a track that most people didn’t “get”, with its 13 minutes of sloooow progression where not much seems to be happening, yet it constantly evolves.
