LANCE FERGUSON: Got myself A Good Man/ Mango Meat (Vinyl 7″)

LANCE FERGUSON:  Got myself A Good ManSummer Madness might’ve been the last single off Lance Ferguson’s covers LP Rare Groove Spectrum Vol. 2, but the cover madness isn’t over yet, for here is brand new 45 Got Myself A Good Man backed with Mango Meat. Indeed if the artwork is anything to go by, this looks like being a harbinger of Rare Groove Spectrum Vol. 3.   The

LANCE FERGUSON: Summer Madness

LANCE FERGUSON:  Summer MadnessThe final single to be relased from the forthcoming Rare Groove Spectrum Vol. 2 LP from The Bamboos’ Lance Ferguson is his crack at covering Kool & The Gang’s super chilled-out and therefore (presumably) ironically named Summer Madness instro from 1974.

What’s Melbourne ever given the world? Well – apart from Olivia Newton John and Neighbours (cheers for them by the way) – actually quite a lot of contemporary funk and soul.

BLACK FEELING VOL. 2: Burning Spear/ Shaft In Africa 45 sampler (2011)

Lance ‘funk is my middle name’ Ferguson of Bamboos/ Cookin’ On 3 Burners fame brings forth the second volume of the Black Feeling project shortly. The central conceit behind this (as with the original) is that Lance and buddies get to cover funk-soul and jazz-funk classics but each one under a different pseudonym. On this album taster, S.O.U.L.’s Burning Spear gets a frantically percussive makeover
