presents a review of...
WFMU Switched On Hip,
Moog Music Sampler
My favorites so far...
The Two Johnny Cash songs are tops -
Folsom Prison Blues by Gil Trythall and
I Walk the Line by Rick Powell
Spanish Flea by Sid Bass, I call this song the theme to 'The Dating Game' and it is of course super hot, I have a real love for gameshow music and this is of that wonderful genre.
Hair by Mort Garson is Bladerunner fresh and timeless.
Polk Salad Annie by Gil Trythall (again) is like some atari shit you never heard before.
Moogie Boogie by The Zeet Band (great name) sounds like chase music from Miami Vice, i can't seeing wanting to hear the whole song again, but i would drop a few seconds of it at a party just to release the flavor.
Porcupine Pie by Hugo Montenegro is a weird 8-bit atari seventies porno soundtrack, it's like a cheesy hot jazz combo playing with a shit hot moog player who has the most awesome like 8-bit atari tones and sounds and its this totally stereotypical porno movie sounding jam, five stars
Whats New Pussycat by Wendy (Walter) Carlos, its a carnival jam cover version that is really Wendy Carlos, Its like an outtake from A Clockwork Orange that didn't make it into the film. I am not much for carnival music but I do like the super freakout at the end, Scary.
If you enjoyed those jams I recommend checking out
One Note Samba. Its the spazrock of Switched On Moog songs.
