Catalog no.: ESLP0000040

Item ID: 393701

A few years removed from their 1970 Damon Studios session in Kansas City, Bump & The Soul Stompers, led by Jerald "Bump" Scott, responded to their era's off-kilter naming conventions to become Unnatural Funk Band. After failing to find a label home for "I Can Remember," they made the descent into neighboring Independence, Missouri's fabled subterranean Cavern Studios, erected inside the mouth of an actual limestone fissure. "Living in the Past" is a nostalgic drift through wistful falsetto and low-riding narration, while "Strange Happenings" is truly exceptional: an unnaturally good funk workout from a virtually undocumented Kansas City soul act. This previously unreleased pairing was unearthed, with assistance from "Bump" Scott himself, during the Numero Group's KC-focused research for 2013's Eccentric Soul: The Forte Label collection.

WEE - YOU CAN FLY ON MY AEROPLANE

This '70s LP, recorded in Columbus, Ohio and featuring one Norman Whiteside, is a genuine undergroud soul cult classic, financed by the world of street prostitution(!). The remarkably well performed music is firmly ensconced in 'Innervisions'-era Stevie Wonder, with nary a ... read more »

 

DUSTER - CAPSULE LOSING CONTRACT (3CD)

San Jose's sonic cure-all for the Y2K hangover that never materialized, Duster emerged from a cloud of lonely bong rips to take indie rock to the moon, and beyond. Scotch-taped guitars toggle between a chorus of brittle winter trees and a blanket of distorted fuzz. The low ... read more »

 

CAVE DWELLERS - RUN AROUND (2X7")

Recorded in 1967 at Chicago's Universal Studios and laboriously laden with Buckinghams-style horns and strings, the Cave Dwellers thought theyd locked their first hit down. Given just a few minutes to produce a B-side, the quintet unleashed their primitive and ... read more »

BUMP & THE SOUL STOMPERS - I CAN REMEMBER/STANDING ON THE OUTSIDE

At the core of Kansas City's vibrant classic-era soul scene was no record label or studio, but America's Best Attractions, run by booking agent Allen Bell. America's Best, and the exceedingly above-board Bell, kept countless local acts roadweary and comfortably paid. Bump ... read more »

 

PISCES (USA) - A LOVELY SIGHT

1969's 'A Lovely Sight', Pisces' only attempt at an LP, never made wax; but the fuzz guitar phrases and tambourine shuffle of 'Dear One' instantly illustrate the band's woozy realm. Deeper inside, bass scales borrowed from Sgt. Pepper give way to Who moves wrecked by bad ... read more »

 

BROUK, JOANNA - HEARING MUSIC (2LP)

Joanna Brouk was a composer who wrote scores with geometric shapes, a poet who became a pioneer of early electronic music. Her little-known body of work exists at the nexus between ambient, new age, drone, and classical minimalism - stark in its simplicity, lush in its ... read more »
