JAZ edits -- New 12" out now!

Phonica says:

"Following on from his work on the Beard Science: Razor Sharp Edits twelve that caused a bit of a storm round these parts late last yeat, John Zahl AKA Jaz returns with another 4 high class disco/ funk/ boogie edits for the Sixty Five label. Smoky, funky quality all round!"

Piccadilly says:

"As per usual the lovely paul Murphy sends us his records direct, which means we get no hype or sales notes, which when it comes to edits means trawling the internet searching for lyrics. This time I have been advised not to bother, for Paul, The Idjuts and even Moonboots haven't got a clue what the OG's are. I will still give you a run down. "Show Me The Doll" is an 80's sounding funk / disco crossover with ace bassline and synths, great drum fills and a Bowie-esque delivery (kind of). Next up is "Leg Room", a brilliant wonky piece of sludge disco with sampled voices and a nagging synth loop. Over on side-B "Jokin' My Way" is a bit of rock disco for you and last up is "I Fought The Claw And The Ray-Gun" which to me hints at Ray Mang and possibly Bear Funk / Big Bear, but it doesn't sound like, that being a driving bit of electro disco rock. Aceness all around, Jaz who is just some guy with a full time job, has me flummoxed."

Available from Juno, Phonica, Piccadilly
and other fine establisments. (Limited to 500)
