OUT & SHIPPING NOW!

CONCIOUS MUSIC 12" DISCO 45

DKR-006

King Kong - He Was a Friend / Dub // Try Not I / Dub

High quality US pressing.

One of the baddest double-sided late 80s digital twelve-inches from one of our favorite singers, now back on road! King Kong self-produced and released this disco in the UK, with "He Was a Friend" also coming out on seven-inch in JA on the Jah All Mighty label. "He Was a Friend" is an awesome far-east tinged riddim, the lyrics a tribute to the late great Tenor Saw, a spar and friend of King Kong. "Try Not I" is pure sound killing style, over a spare but heavy and menacing riddim.

i'm not all that often interested in a digi production but that's a pretty nice one Stevo - i think i may even like the B-side better, although both cuts sound good.

Long time I big up King Kong! Long overdue @ SNWMF! Him & Tenor Saw were bredren & it shows in their singjay styles, which fed off one another. KK could've made it as a pure singer, as is evident in the heartical "He Was a Friend", but it's his singjay flow that gets me every time.

Yeah, the McKay/Morris 12 seems to be really good. I only heard samples so far, which did impress me. Will be receiving a test-copy from one of the Digikiller guys as a return for helping him out with a tune some time ago, so soon I'll be able to spin it myself in full too.

Have the 14 Karat's, Philip Myers and King Kong on order from Honest Jon's.

The King Kong I ordered is Honest Jon's own repress, on Dug Out label, not the Digikiller one.

> Have the 14 Karat's, Philip Myers and King Kong on order from Honest Jon's.

Just got the parcel in today, highly recommended pieces of vinyl. Big tunes, excellent sound and pressing quality. Definitely prefer the b-side of the King Kong, Try Not I, over the a-side, which is nice too though. The 14 Karat tracks are a real nice set in mid-80s style and the Philip Myers is a truely wicked digital tune. Well pleased with the sounds! Big up Digikiller and Honest Jon's. Keep 'm coming!
