Re: Doug Wimbush/Tackhead
yeah, i'll chime in here.
tackhead absolutely smoked around the late 80's.
saw them at the palace in hollywood about 88 and was just blown away.
wimbush, for me, was hendrix on bass that night...even doing the over
the head thing and playing with his teeth and shit... just crazy.
IMHO, Gary Clail's Tackhead Sound System is a seminal record...so far
ahead of it's time with the whole dj/band configuration.
also worth checking out might be Mark Stewart and Maffia, which, if i
remember correctly, is Wimbush, Sherwood and the others, but with
Mark Stewart at the mike, rather than Gary Clail.
man, it's been a long time since i've dug into that stuff, although
Tackhead Sound System still finds it's way into the CD player on a
fairly regular basis. the samples of Margaret Thatcher do tend to
date it a bit, though!
