Rock DJ - "Holger Czukay, Jah Wobble, Jaki Liebezeit – Full Circle" (1982)


"I am a film editor during daytime but at night I put on my feather boa and DJ in the dark and seedy bars of Bucharest. I have been playing music for friends and dancers for more than 10 year in some of the most inspiring places: The Web Club, Embryo, Tralala, Ota, Control or Atelier Mecanic.

One of my favorite records is Jah Wobble, Jaki Liebezeit, Holger Czukay - "Full Circle". Released in 1982, I don't think it ever got the recognition it deserves. Although everybody knows "supergroups" usually have average output, this seems to be the exception - for me it is at least as good as any Can, PIL or Wobble record. You have Liebezeit's (apparently)clockwork drumming, Wobble's dubby bass and haunting vocals, all tightened up by master Czukay's cosmic production. 
Buy it and enjoy the ride.

P.S. My friend Utopus has done a very nice, slower rework of the first track, "How Much Are They?"
Listen to it here:"
