IWR Videos For 08/06/2007

King Sunny Ade - Synchro System [Bio]
King Sunny Ade and His African Beats is one of my favorite bands of all time.  I really love that Juju music sound!  It just makes you want to get up and dance.  I've got to see him live some day.  There is also complete live eight part Holland concert video on YouTube to give you an idea of what his more recent concerts are like. I first heard King Sunny during the great Napster Cambrian Explosion, and now thanks to YouTube we're having another little Tsunami of music videos.

Mute Math - Typical [Bio]
I noticed in the paper that these guys were playing over the weekend in San Francisco.  So I looked 'em on YouTube, and I found this song and clever video that I liked by them.   Does that make me typical now? ;-)

Franco Luambo Makiadi -Tpok Jazz - Massu [Bio]
Another great artist to come out of Africa was the Congolese musician and singer Franco Luambo and his TPOK Jazz band.  They played a very fast beat Rumba that later inspired the Soukous (modern African Rumba) movement.  This song Massu sung by the lovely Jolie Detta is one my favorites by the group.

Shangri Las - Give Him a Great Big Kiss [Bio]
This all girl band from the Mid-1960s were an influence the punk and new wave bands of the 1970's, e.g., Blondie, New York Dolls, B-52s, etc.  This was their best video I could find on YouTube.
