Crazy Eddie & Jazaq - Come On Party People


I traded something for this around '86-'87, can't remember what but an excellent trade don't you think? My mate (at the time; stole my PE 'Public Enemy no.1' 12" and a compilation video of stuff I'd recorded off the telly) got it off someone he knew and I ended up with it. I'd like to know the provenance of it as promos were really not around much due to there being no internet and what have you. I don't ever remember buying one in the shop so I'd say this is a pretty scarce piece of wax. And a killer track too with some firin' vocoder action to boot. There's also a glaring typo but let's not discuss that.

ran away when I was 9
took to a life of crime
robbin' peoples jewelry juvenile
delinquency
judge sent me to a school ran
by creeps and by fools
teacher is a closet case
he got too close so I broke his face

When I heard the rap above by johhny bankcheque in 1983 or 4 with a
basic drumbeat and no music
I thought it was the worst electro
record I had heard little did I
know that this was the direction
the music would evolve to in the
later 80's and even stranger that
I could never forget it and find myself buying this record on discogs today. I am addicted to
electro funk sounds more now than ever so keep on the education
because I really did miss out on the later 80's gems like Crazy Eddie & Jazaq - Come On Party People and thanks

just heard an excellent late
80's electro - Miami bass stlye
track from ebay but too expensive :
Sugar Style - Quadro-Phonic (On The Spot 1988) I bid over twenty pound
for it though

i must say i don't know the sugar style track. 20 quid's usually my limit too, nothing's worth more than a score. unless i'm the one selling it o' course.
