Crate Soul Brothers newsletter #109: Good Spells for Xmas

Newsflash 24. December 2003

Dear friends,

Another year passed by and although sometimes it seems that it doesn't differ from the previous ones there has been some changes. First of all our radio ( got back its frequency finally and can broadcast again with full power (making waves again and again since then in our small hypocrite country…). We also managed to get a monthly Saturday night at the best venue of Budapest called A38 ( where we already had some guests like Dj Vadim, Poets of Rhythm, Jazzanova, Tom Wieland and Marcel. On mighty DJ Vadim's party we had a full house of almost 800 people rocking to the strictly oldschool funk sounds (check some pictures: just as next night in Vienna's Soulsugar ( Central and Eastern Europe, prepare for more Russian-Hungarian funk-soul invasion next year!

We have continued our smaller nights at Mucsarnok (Art Gallery) - sometimes with less success, but always with a quality lineup including such guys as Enes Haracic (Sarajevo), DJ Spider (Lyon), Chris Goss (London), Richard aka DJ Research (Melbourne) or Karl Injex (Atlanta). Thanks for all of you for visiting and playing all the good music, and once again for Fred/Spider for inviting us to La Marquise, one of the best French club venues! We keep keeping on with Quantic and Mad Mats (you remember "Red Astaire - Follow Me", don't you?) on the next Crate Soul Pressure events.

Musicwise we did not much but a few remixes in (for Arkestra One and for Kaori), and got some nice feedbacks. We just got the test pressing of the first 12" of Uncle Tom Wieland's Eastern European compilation including our first finished tune called "Flyin Down to Rio". In the next months another 12" will be released on Italy's Ohm Records including an older Crate Soul Brothers tune called "Swinging with Miss Goodnight" (actually this was a DJ Shuriken track) with some new Panoptikum and Modul mixes.

That's the sum of the last busy months. For a bit of Christmas magic, read John Corbett's weird encounter with Lee 'Scratch' Perry in a park in Switzerland:

"I spell different. I am the g-n-o-m-e, gome. I don't use bad spells, I make good spells. I make evil spell good spell. I am the gome that come to rob the gnomes with my black comb in Switzerland!" He laughs hysterically. We are walking through a populated picnic area, but I am totally captivated and he is oblivious and on a roll. „With my laser gun in hand and my iron cross in hand, I am the luckies one under the sun. All I do is shake a leg and a lot of money come. Money come out of my jump, money come out of my bass, money come out of my briefcase and money come out of my suitcase. Briefcase of money. Suitcase of money. Carload of money. Shiploads of money. Plane loads of money. I am the money maker, and I am the money taker. I am the money conqueror and I am the money bankerer. I am the music skanter and I come to skank all the wankerers… like the popes and bishops and deacons and elders. Time for them to quit because I'm taking over! 'Achtung, achtung!' mean 'Attention, attention!' I am taking over the eart'! I am an alien from outer space, with my space gun and my iron cross, I don't make fun."

Taken from John Corbett (1994) Extended Play. Sounding off from John Cage to Dr.Funkenstein, London: Duke University Press.

It's time to quit for a while though… Thanks to all our friends, fans and supporters. Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
