"Made in Nigeria" Part 4 up on Boogieheads Radio



Of course, y'all already knew that because you already subscribed to the podcast, right?

Boogie and funk sounds from the 1980s this time. I mentioned before that I previously did a post commenting and giving some background on the songs obafunkie jR played on the last 80s special, but I never posted it. I'll try to do that later this week (I've barely posted anything at all in the past two weeks, huh? Yeah... been kinda busy, unfortunately). I'll probably do the same for this episode, I guess. Eventually.

Anyway, go check out the show at Boogieheads dot com.

Fun stuff. This has me smiling through the pain, cheerleader style. . . Oh yeah, the 'funky' eighties upwardly mobile beautiful people having sanitised designer fun, sound! Gucci. . FEEE-orucci etc. Shalamar, Germaine Jackson et al. . . Nasty chorused guitar, slap bass and early digital synths. . . fascinating to hear that it sounded just as nasty in Nigeria! ;-)
Not to appear ungrateful of course, many thanks for this mix and stay well y'hear,
Jon

ha... i hear you, Jon!

i myself have a longrunning love-hate relationship with the 1980s, a simultaneously exciting and depressing era for music lovers in every corner of the globe (Elvis Costello has called it "the decade that music forgot").

i'm glad to have lived through it, though... otherwise, i might never have believed that an epoch of such musical schizophrenia and questionable taste actually existed in reality!

(LOL @ the "Halston, Gucci, Fiorucci" reference)
