If you don’t know about the Budos Band, please check them out. I was witness to their sheer funkiness a few years ago when I saw them in Brooklyn open up for Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. Their set was phenomenal. Check out this video from their performance this summer in Chicago’s Grant Park.
Oh you must check out this fantastic performance by The Incredible Stacks from Leiden, Holland with their super groovy organ. What is that magic organ he is playing?
“Screen Door / Screen Door Echoes” by The Incredible Stacks. Garage Rock/Garage Funk improvisation withdrums, bass and organ recorded at their studio in Leiden (Holland).
Check out this stellar old Farfisa Drum Machine video demo from your wonderful German friends at AnalogAudio1. Another one that I have never heard of. I bet this one never made it over to the states.
Playing around the Farfisa “Melodic Rhythmer” CER-60. It’s a very rare analogue drumbox from the seventies. Also known as “GOYA Melodic Rhythmer”. There are CANCEL tabs for several sounds: CYMBAL, CLAVES, COWBELL, BASSDRUM. With these tabs you can mute them.
This box has a funny design, it looks like a guitar amp. There is no speaker inside. It’s also perfect for your next prank with a guitar player 😉
Granted the keyboardist plays an Elka organ, not a Farfisa, Los Peyotes from Argentina should be on your radar. Their live set looks amazing, there are plenty of videos on youtube for your review. Here is my personal favorite.
Holy crap! If you have never seen The Mummies, get ready for something else! Doing high kicks and tumble salts on a Farfisa Mini Compact sure adds to it’s durability cred though.
