LUCKY US! - We got the opportunity to go record shopping with Charli XCX when she was in town for the recent Groovin’ The Moo festival dates and found out a few records that meant a little somethin’ to our fave pop mega-star/babe.
Don’t believe us? Well…
New York Electronic duo The Knocks would like to return to the classics…
WHOA. Talk about a summertime JAM. How are those Nile Rodgers-esque guitar chops?!
We wanted to comment on the INXS doco a little… Above may we present a rockstar.
Below may we present… well… a bunch of Notstars.
Didn’t get yourself a ticket to see Chic & Nile Rodgers tear the sails off Sydney’s Opera House on Saturday night? Well don’t worry as you’ll be able to stream the concert in full on Saturday night (Dec 7 9PM AEDT) no matter where in the world you are thanks to the Live at the House YouTube channel.
Have you ever wondered what Daft Punk’s Get Lucky would have sounded like had it been recorded in a different decade?
Neither have we.
Some French dude did though and recorded versions of 2013’s biggest tune covering 1930-2020*.
The good people over at Rhino have done the hard work for us and compiled a comprehensive selection of Nile Rodgers tracks that features his work with Chic, his productions for the likes of David Bowie, Madonna & INXS and obviously his latest guest spot with Daft Punk all in one handy playlist.
It’s a pretty nice looking portfolio complete with some of the funkiest damn guitar chops you’re ever likely to hear. Good Times indeed.
There was a kid in my school who used to wear a raincoat buckled up and flick his (died orange) hair in an attempt to look like this:
There’s A LOT of hype around Daft Punk at the moment and rightfully so, with audio teasers, album announcements and possible tour dates (Coachella anyone?) floating around the internet, people are frothing at the bit in excitement which makes me think they’ve obviously forgotten about the pretty ordinary TRON: Legacy OST…
