Surprise Chef are Coburg’s cinematic soul journeymen, pushing moody shades of instrumental jazz-funk with a DIY mentality.
The centrepiece of the College Of Knowledge Records roster, Surprise Chef’s output reflects a meticulous education of 1970’s soul, touching on the legacies of composer/producers David Axelrod & Isaac Hayes, with cues also taken from the catalogues of Daptone and Truth & Soul
Cheers, i'll probably download their entire discography tonight.My favourite band is Wire (1976-2006). Still going but not the same band since
a key member left in 2006. This is my favourite album of theirs. '154' was released
in 1979. It's also Al Jourgensen's all time fave album. 'Map Reference' is astounding.
The last four tracks are from an vinyl 45 include in the initial release as a bonus. One
track from each member of the band. 'Let's Panic Later' from bass/vocalist Graham Lewis
What a great song !
Van Morrison- Astral Weeks.
Probably well known to a lot of you mob on here, but seriously, a masterpiece. A grower, takes a few listens, like all the best albums. And he recorded it when he was only 22!
One of the best albums of all time, IMHO. A hard 5/5.
Restless and Wild is one of my all time favourite albums! Unfortunately they never hit those highs again, although they got close with Metal Heart.Restless and Wild is even better!
