Arp-Life - Jumbo Jet

  • Arp-Life

    Jumbo Jet LP (1977)

    Polskie Nagrania Muza

Studio creation Arp-Life fused traditional rock sounds with electronics and disco for Polish television.  Their full length Jumbo Jet is a somewhat interesting listen and has a lot of food for the sampler.  The real reason to add this to the pile is the uptempo b-boy track "Bu-Bu".  The tune begins with a HARD-hitting neck snapping drum break a la Janko Nilovic,  unfolding into the synth rock jam with fuzz guitar, overdriven picked bass, and funky Rhodes.  It's a quality track that will call attention to any DJ set.
