12/6/2017 TKS Presents: ‘Out There!’ tracklist

Unconventional or eccentric; in or at places regarded as distant or remote. The first definition might be applied to some of the sonic contents of  ‘Out There!’, and the second in the extreme of space or other dimensions. I also wanted the title of the programme to reference being ‘out there’ on the streets, because sounds inspired/catalysed by conditions on the streets of major cities in the U.S, revolutionary sounds, are integral in the mix, both those from the late 60’s/early 70’s and, through Moor Mother and Matana Roberts, those of today.

The show opened with a classic…..

1) Curtis Mayfield – (Don’t Worry) If There’s A Hell Below We’re All Going To Go /from ‘Curtis’/ Buddah Records 1970
2) Albert Ayler Trio – Spirits /from ‘Spiritual Unity’/ ESP Disk 1965

10) Funkadelic – Maggot Brain (Alt. mix) /from the 2005 reissue of ‘Maggot Brain’/ Westbound Records 1971

That alternative mix, also recorded in 1971, of the mighty title track from Funkadelic‘s third album bringing the sonic journey to a close……Wish you many an aural delight, S.

Due to some technical issues, the volume of the introductions is very low, but you can enjoy the music here:
