DON KING-ONE-TWO PUNCH, 12" EP, 1985, USA




With a lineup featuring Arto Lindsay from DNA and Mark Cunningham from Mars, you'd expect a record like this would have a substantially higher profile but such is not the case for the woefully overlooked Don King, whose dramatic, punchy brass driven sound yokes Jules Baptiste/
Ordinaries-like post punk horn charting to a chassis equal parts Elliott Sharp/Carbon-style urban jungle disjointed rhythmic churn and History Of Unheard Music-like lopsided mutant funk.

Is a missing track about the year 1986, some information of this song is welcome (if is possible some clue or a extract of the lyrics...my english is very bad).
Great blog and great music here.
Blogs like this is my only hope.
Cheers.

Sounds like Sonic Youth jamming with Public Image Limited to me. :O)

A great fusion of samba beats, Vanguarda São Paulo-style skronk, and post-No Wave noise. Good rec.
