    Postcard-sized flyer from surely the best club in the world ever! Queues round the block to get in every night for about 15 years!

Sinead O'Connor (who came with Adrian Sherwood!), Kylie Minogue, Peaches Geldof, Richard Branson's son (who tried to get in free) ...

    This is from the early days at the Blue Angel in Islington and lists the Soul Jazz Sound System with regular guests Jerry Dammers, Pete Holdwsorth (Pressure Sounds), Manassah, Dave Hill (Nuphonic), Mark Ainley (Honest Jons), Wilbur Wilberforce and The Equaliser. Not bad for £4

        Here's someone talking about the night back in the day (somewhere around the end of the 1990s):

        "Tiny little blink-and-you-miss-it venue currently home to the fab Saturday Night Fish Fry night, The Fringe is a sweaty, grubby place - just the way we like it. The main dancefloor is downstairs and always rammed. Upstairs there's a smokey chillout room which comes complete with a bizzare S&M cage and plenty more fetish accessories. Look but don't touch is our advice".

                Soul Jazz Records presents Brasil featuring Sivuca, Joyce, Raul de Souza and moreRecorded in Rio de Janeiro, BrazilSoul Jazz Records

                Brand new edition of Soul Jazz Records’ Brasil album recorded in Rio de Janeiro in 1994 with a host of legendary Brazilian musicians including Sivuca, Raul de Souza and singer Joyce Moreno – which has remained one of the key defining early releases from the record label. Out-of-print for over 20 years (!!!) the album has now been fully digitally re-mastered for this new 2018 edition.

                The album was recorded at the height of the first wave of interest in Brazilian music in London in the 1990s. Joyce and a group led by husband drummer Tutty Moreno had just been brought to the UK for the first time ever by Gilles Peterson and Brazilian music obsessive Joe Davis (and future head of Far Out Records) and performing to over 2,000 new young fans.

                Singer-songwriter Joyce has been a living legend in her native Brazil ever since the Bossa Nova movement of the 1960s and had made her first record when she was just 20, and described by Antonio Carlos Jobim as ‘one of the greatest singers of all time.’

                Joyce Moreno agreed to be involved in the project to record an album in Brazil produced with a UK sensibility and Tutty Moreno’s group signed up as the house-band for the project. Stuart Baker (founder of Soul Jazz Records) and Joe Davis then flew to Rio de Janeiro, searching out studios and rehearsal spaces.

                During this time in Brazil more artists signed up for the project including legendary figureheads of the Brazilian music Sivuca (who brought his own group) and trombonist Raul de Souza. Other key figures included singer/guitarist Celia Vaz who worked extensively as arranger with the legendary Quarteto Em Cy and drummer Dom Um Romao); Wanda Sá, who played in Sergio Mendes’ original seminal bossa nova group Brasil 65 (during which time she married the artist Edu Lobo); and legendary saxophone/flautist Teco Cardoso whose bio reads like a who’s who of Brazilian music and includes work with Edu Lobo, Dori Caymmi, Baden Powell, Joao Donato, Carlos Lyra and others.

                The final piece to this Brazilian jigsaw was the addition of percussionist Pirulito – whose stunning display of self-made instruments allowed him to magically create the massive sound of Rio’s Samba Schools live inside the studio. The album was recorded over one hot summer, mixed in London and then released at the end of 1994.

                Over 20 years on and Soul Jazz records’ Brasil album manages to capture both an important cross-cultural musical moment in time between Brazil and London while at the same time sounding as fresh as if it was recorded today! Following the original success of this album Soul Jazz Records’ continued its love affair with Brazil and went on to release a host of Brazilian albums including classics such as Tropicalia, Brazil 70, Bossa Nova, a Bossa Nova cover art deluxe book with Gilles Peterson and releases by Sergio Mendes, Baden Powell, Edu Lobo and more

                This new edition album is released with full original artwork and now comes as limited edition remastered vinyl edition (+ free download), limited edition Japanese heavy card CD edition and digital album.

                    TetineI Go To The DoctorSoul Jazz Records

                    Killer Punk-Funk/New Wave 12” featuring the Sao Paulo based group Tetine along with a wicked remix from CSS. Tetine are Bruno Verner and Eliete Mejorado. This is their second release on Soul Jazz Records and is a taster for their forthcoming album Let Your X’s Be Y’s, a wild mix-up of Punk-Funk/New Wave/Post- Punk/Baile-Bass. Integral to the same vibrant Sao Paulo music scene in Brazil that has now produced both CSS and Bonde de Role, Tetine’s music is similarly a mixture of raw punky energy and attitude mixed with bass-heavy dance music. Tetine are in-fact the forerunners of this scene having now released 8 albums in Brazil since they formed in Sao Paulo in 1995. "Tetine was my first inspiration in terms of intellect, presence and their amazing performances. It was right there in front of me but it made such a strong impression I never forgot that was what real music is about: freedom and purity and, of course, in many different ways, FUN! I've never seen something like that coming from Brazil, or actually, anywhere!" Lovefoxx - CSS Constantly exploring the boundaries between music, art, video, performance their infamous live events range from rock gigs to gallery installations. "Tetine are Feminists, un-followers and inventors of their own scene; an uncut diamond. If Art is really dead, then Tetine belong to a "nameless" genre – the makers of something wild, something alive." Chicks On Speed Aside from their own music, Tetine have also been instrumental in bringing the Brazilian underground scene to the general public, having compiled both Funk Carioca (the first ever album of Baile Funk outside of Brazil) and Sexual Life of the Savages (an essential primer to early-80s Post-Punk from Sao Paulo, released on Soul Jazz Records).

                    TetineA Historia Da GarcaSoul Jazz Records

                    Tetine are Brazilian artists/musicians Bruno Verner and Eliete Mejorado and are stars of Sao Paulo's avant garde music scene - uniting electronic music with Brazilian dark sambas, performance art, spoken word, super 8 movies and whatever came into their heads. Their musical influences range from bands such as Throbbing Gristle, Peaches, Tuxedomoon to Kraftwerk, Can, but it also incorporates heavily the more experimental side of Brazilian musicians such as Paulinho Da Viola, Os Mutantes, Chico Buarque or the Tropicalists and Rio Baile Funk artists. Since 2002 they have lived and worked in London. Three years ago they brought Baile Funk to the UK with their Slum Dunk radio show and subsequently with Slum Dunk presents Funk Carioca album. In 2005 they compiled The Sexual Life Of The Savages for Soul Jazz Records - an album of obscure early 80's underground post punk from São Paulo. In 2006 Tetine played at the opening night of TROPICALIA - A Revolution in Brazilian Culture - at Barbican Centre alongside Brazilian multi-artist Assume Vivid Astrofocus.

The second instalment of this excellent series continues the onward journey of Dubstep, with scene favourites such as Digital Mystikz, Kode 9, Pinch drawing upon new sounds and influences to bring some of the freshest sounds heard in dance music in recent times.

                    Voguing: Voguing and the House Ballroom Scene of New York City 1989-92Photographs and interviews by Chantal Regnault, Introduction by Tim LawrenceSoul Jazz Books

                    BACK IN PRINT!!! The ESSENTIAL book about Voguing featuring 200+ photographs, interviews and text on the LEGENDS of the House Ballroom Scene of New York City 1989-92.

                    Introductory essay is by Tim Lawrence, author of the seminal music books: 'Life and Death on The New York Dance Floor',‘Love Saves the Day: A History of American dance music culture, 1970-79’ and ‘Hold on to your Dreams: Arthur Russell and the Downtown Music Scene, 1973-92’.

                    Voguing came out of the extraordinary house ballroom scene that emerged in Harlem, New York in the 1980s where men competed against one another for their dancing skills, the realness of their drag and their ability to walk on a catwalk runway like a model.

                    These wild years of voguing and the house ballroom scene are vividly captured at its height in hundreds of amazing, previously unpublished photographs. A visual riot of fashion, gender, polysexuality and subversive style, Voguing and the House Ballroom Scene of New York 1989-92 is also a fascinating and timely document on sexuality and race.

                    In 2018 a new American TV drama series, Ryan Murphy's POSE premiered, set in the Voguing and House Ballroom world.

                    Photographer Chantal Regnault lived in New York between 1989-92, photographing the hidden and underground Voguing and House Ballroom Scene at its height – the book features the dancers Willi Ninja, Jose and Luis Xtravaganza (who all worked with Madonna) – LEGENDARY ‘mothers’ of the gay and transgender world – Avis Pendavis, Peppa LaBeija, Carmen Xtravaganza, Dorian Corey, Paris Dupree and more.


                    SELECT REVIEWS:

                    "Photographer Chantal Regnault immersed herself in the Voguing scene with passion, accumulating a treasure trove of unpublished photographs now gathered in this book. A beautiful subversive and rare document but also a sociological testimony of a musical movement undeniably linked to sexual and cultural identity." PARIS VOGUE

                    "Fabulous images documenting the phenomenon of Voguing in New York's house ballrooms in the 1980s and early 90s" THE GUARDIAN

                    "An amazing insight into the roots of music, polysexuality and subversive style that defined a party era." EVENING STANDARD

                    "This photography book captures all the fierce shade-throwing, catwalk-walking competition of gay ballroom culture in the 1980s ... 10,10,10." GAY TIMES
