For the most part, this show pays tribute to the exceptional music I keep finding that connects back to Monte La Rue, the puckishly self-aware, self-described king of lounge (see Discogs for his tribute to Robert Palmer's Pressure Drop album cover from the late 70s, for a taste of his tongue in cheek approach to identity.)
The show begins with a gem from Simple Minds off their 1984 Sparkle in the Rain vinyl, defining 'ample rhythm' 80s style … likewise the "Equal Dreams" tune from Rewards, tho’ of current vintage, brings back that bright jangly 80s sound as well. Rounding out this 80-min set are blog picks courtesy of RCDLBL, a crucial site for keeping us current. Finally, the show's title honors go to J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science, based on a bit of the lyric from "Dirty Dub" … and there you have it: Ample Rhythm for your every need.
