Who is DJ Spanish Fly?

Danny Brown + DJ Spanish Fly

Friday the 13th – 12/13/13

10 PM @ The ‘Sco

Dj Spanish Fly didn’t invent gangster rap, but when you go back to the early 80’s and double-check who was pumping 808’s MAD GRIMeY and whose flow was MAD SLoW, he’s at the top of the list. Most well-known for his association with Three 6 Mafia, Spanish Fly’s style has remained the same over time, unstifled by changing fads. His rhymes are creepy, smooth, stoned slow and sly. Spanish Fly still has a slot on Memphis’s Hot 107.1 , recently released a new mixtape and has started touring in various cities across the country.

RBMA:Yeah it seems like that kind of Memphis energy has spread a lot over the past two decades.

SPANISH FLY:Yeah, all over the world, and that’s what I be proud about. I’ll be sitting back laughing every time I hear Drumma [Boy] do something with Drake or [DJ] Paul [of Three 6 Mafia] do something or [Yo] Gotti do something, because it’s just an accomplishment, man. (RBMA)

SPFlyMainWanna win a pair of tickets to see DJ Spanish Fly open for Danny Brown? Olivia S.’s show “We are Floating in Space” will give away a pair at Thursday at 5 AM. Here is what Olivia says about Dj Spanish Fly:

“DJ Spanish Fly reminds me of one of the first friends I made in high school…we would always listen to music together; we both liked music from the south, though I was more into Southern rock/blues while he liked Southern hip hop.  There were artists I knew like Lil Jon and Organized Noize, but I remember him also playing stuff I hadn’t heard before at the time like DJ Spanish Fly…for whatever especially loved the obscure track “Alright” off the A.B.C.D.E. album, and I couldn’t help but think back to that and smile when I heard about the show this Friday.  I’ve since explored more by DJ Spanish fly and can appreciate the simplicity and directness of his music/have much respect for the influence that he had on a lot of the hip hop coming out of Memphis during the 80s-90s.  ”

Vinyl Finds from the WOBC Vault

Every week, vinyl workgroup dives into the deepest depths of the labyrinthine world of WOBC’s vinyl vault. The collection, stretching back to the 60s, is of a rare kind – it doesn’t just have the hits and the classics, it has the albums singles companies wanted to be hits, the double albums they wanted to be classics, the strange compilations, the complete musical failures that quickly went into obscurity, the undiscovered gems that never saw much light. Here are some particular interesting ones we picked out – and DJs, if you want to play these on your show, you can find them on the “best of vinyl” shelf in the public affairs room.

“Daydreamers” by Nelories, off of Daisy (1994, Sugarfrost) | Japanese alt-indie-ACCORDION-pop duo from the 90s. Weren’t expecting that part, were you.

“Elephant Stone (7″ Single Version)” by the Stone Roses (1988, Silvertone) | An acid indie rock jam.

Stone+Roses+-+Elephant+Stone+-+2nd+Issue+-+12"+RECORD_MAXI+SINGLE-109166

“Holotelani” by Nelcy Sedibe off of The Indestructible Beat of Soweto (1985, Shanachie Records) | An important compilation from the 80s of a wide variety of South African artists – never disappoints!

Various-World+Music+-+The+Indestructible+Beat+Of+Soweto+Volume+One+-+LP+RECORD-543043

Soul to Soul (1971, Atlantic) | Soundtrack from a film of a 1971 concert in Ghana of American soul, R&B, and rock musicians – Wilson Pickett, Ike & Tina Turner, Santana, Roberta Flack, The Staples Singers and more.

Who is Hunx + His Punx?

HXS2

 

Hunx + His Punx & Shannon + The Clams

The ‘Sco

11/26/13

10 PM

$5 OC ID/ $15 W.O

Hunx + His Punx is a rush of warped 60’s girl-group harmonies, explicit + tasty lyrics directed towards the glammest, hippest qts + a major disregard for anyone without a certain careless attitude. Seth Bogert + Shannon Shaw (Shannon and the Clams) created the group, and together, they create some weirdly nostalgic, party-ready anthems. Words that can be associated with HahP include: teenage meltdown, tight spandex booty shorts, seven minutes in heaven, mischief night, TP-ing your math teacher’s house, eating a bunch of frosted cupcakes, wearing glitter eyeshadow, stealing your parents’s holiday rum, etc. Here is an excerpt from an interview with Bogert:

REAXI read an article where you made out with a bunch of people in the front row of the audience and you got strep-throat.
HUNX: Oh my god I did.

You heard it here first: you could maybe make out with the hotties in Hunx + His Punx if you come to the show tomorrow night at the ‘Sco!
