Boo. All horrific and devlish themed music (with a typical twist of HIQI good vibes and humor). Just right to get you in the mood for Hit It and Quit It Revue's FIRST HALLOWEEN THROWDOWN, this Saturday night at Cassette 9 in Auckland. Dress to depress and see you in a minute!


PS. Last week's show has been temporarily lost in a technological vortex. We're still looking for ways to streamline the post-prod, biggups to Ben Lawson for his diligence in getting this one up!

RIP OF THE WEEK : One Way (ft Al Hudson) - Tonight

Sorry for the lack of activity on the blog as of late, in order to make up for it here is a very special tune ripped cleanly (as possible) off my very own 7".

This tune is a rarity of sorts, the B-side to the way-more-famous "Music" single by One Way, a fine example of the talents of wunderkind producer: Kevin McCord. Never released on LP this great song was only available on 12" and the 7".

Kevin McCord is one of the reasons why I started collecting records. After I heard his jam "Never Say" on a Dam Funk mix I needed more. I turned this record up on my 3rd ever visit to a record store, $2.

It's not a wall to wall dance floor destroyer, just a lovely groove with some trademark piano, and frequent collaborator Alicia Myers on the vocal. An early example (1979) of the brilliance of Mr Kevin McCord. Hopefully you all enjoy this song as much as I do.

Hit It & Quit It: Double Edition!

Our apologies for the delay in posting last week's show. We have this thing called Daylight Savings where everybody's clocks change.  Evidently the super computer at George couldn't handle the pressure and recorded some other show, or something like that. Anywaaaaaaay.....

We have two weeks worth of GRIPPING radio shows for you in one hit today: Monday 4th October & Monday 11th October. And oh my, what fine shows they were too.
Monday the 4th was very much on a HOUSE music tip, with a special tip of the hat to Mr. Aaron Carl (RIP), a special preview of an exclusive podcast Recloose has done for our good friends at Ghostly International and lots of great music from the likes of Vakula (Firecracker), The Beat Addicts, KDJ and much, much more.

This week's show was back to the usual chaotic, all over the shop (in a good way!) Hit It & Quit It. We had a packed studio full of guests, and managed to talk a bit of junk about our forthcoming Halloween edition of Hit It & Quit It (Saturday 30th October at Cassette 9, Auckland City. Hollar!). We got some great ideas for costumes.... Myself and Recloose are thinking about going as The Proclaimers. Or not.

Anyway, on with the show. Enjoy. Spread the love! HIT IT & QUIT IT! RAH!

RIP of the week: Tye Tribbett 'Mighty Long Way'

OK. Something really very special for you all this week. This came out as a re-edited version (the original was a CD only thing, and rather hard to come by) on a white label 12" bootleg with Roots Manuva vs Sa-Ra on the flip.

This was a HUGE record when it came out. It was heard all over the place in London (where I was living at the time), a big tune at Co-op and also played to death by Gilles Peterson & Benji B and any other DJ interested in Soul music. And why not: It's a joyous gospel tune with a Dilla-esque bounce to the beat (I believe Mr James Poyser is at least in part responsible for the production).

As it was only a limited bootleg release, it's virtually impossible to come by now. This version is ripped from the vinyl: Enjoy!
