Silicon Chip (Trunk)
Freestyle / Nu Jazz / Funk / Afro
Trunk Records caught everyone off guard way back in 2003 when they embarked on a series of reissues from the off-kilter musical world of Basil Kirchin, with his seriously scored orchestras, science fiction experiments, home-spun psychedelia and avant garde racket. (Astractions of the Industrial North being an in-house favourite here.)
Now Trunk pulls out the trump card with an unknown Kirchin 1979 electronic floor-filler, in the shape of Silicon Chip. This nearly 40 year old tune contains all the analogue froth, cosmic thump and boogie down bass to get any party started.
Pressed on yellow wax, dead, dead limited, and brilliant. Backed with the stop/start helter-skelter arpeggio'd Silicon Sessions - works a treat when pitched down a little.
