I discovered that I don't care for this AT ALL.
On paper, it's right up my street...strident title, left-leaning, foreign language.
As it turns out, it's a bunch of wet noodle.
What do you guys hear in this track?!


You must remember when I bought this back in the 80's, we didn't have a lot of latin music to compare it to. Working Week used good players and this one had a certain lightness of touch. Nice rhythms and the right sentiment.
I wouldn't pick it myself, but it's nice seeing it in someone else's list. I preferred Weekend, their prior band, to Working Week though.


I bought it in the 80s too off the back of a review that said it was great but that purists would hate it.

Thirty years later that reviewer is still right.
Good.

I'm hearing lots of great new music thanks to this year's cup. Good job, people.

As it happens, I'm listening to them now, one I (could have, only I don't ever do that stuff!) downloaded, with 'Disco biscuit love' (?), don't know the album/EP title without looking, I just whacked it onto an mp3 compilation CDR.

Little bit of an 80s vibe (which is OK with me!), but a nice and authentic sounding performing band, they sound real to me, with their own voice. At least on the basis of those 7 or 8 tracks. I'll look out for some more, I do like them...

I first heard of Iron Knowledge via the appearance of the single A-side on this excellent (legit?) v/a 2002 CD compilation, 'Chains and Black Exhaust' - it got a good (paragraph) review in 'The Wire' here (UK), I recall - that same comp was also part of an excellent psychedelic soul DVD set that was going round a couple of years back...

That's all I know - I'd be interested to hear if you find out anything more.

BTW, it looks like this was the actual B-side of the 'Show Stopper' 45...

“Oh Love”

Iron Knowledge update

http://dudebehindtherecordcounter.com/page/15

Magic Lantern — "showstopper"

Limited to only 500 copies, this 2010 7” release on the ear-mangling Not Not Fun label is an unrelenting updated hashing of funky stoner psych-rock.

“Showstopper” originally came from Youngstown Ohio heshers Iron Knowledge in 1974. They unleashed 3 singles (actually 2 & a half… “Show-stopper” was used twice) and no LP. Very sad considerin’ how sweet the song is!

Now, to say that Magic Lantern does the tune justice …I dunno. They’ve changed it up a bit addin’ tons of reverb on the vox and a thicker, slicker guitar sound rather than the grunting rhythm & sharp lead guitars o’ thee original. Still killer, just different… which is what NEEDS to happen with cover tunes!

Here, I’ll give ya both versions and you can pick yer fave.

download: Magic Lantern- “Showstopper”

download: Iron Knowledge- “Show-stopper”


and, from

Three singles only, on the local Tammy label, from Youngstown, Ohio:

Tammy 1038 Show Stopper c/w Oh Love
Tammy 1043 Who Put the Ram (in the Rama Lama Ding Dong) c/w Show Stopper
Tammy 1055 Give Me a Little Taste of Your Love c/w Part 2

I'd never heard of Linda Perhac before. This is fantastic.
