The Foreign Correspondent Returns


A few days ago an old friend of mine contact me on the telephone after a long years. He told me that he found some vinyl records in his portfolio that belongs to me. We met for a few drinks and he handed me out 15 albums I borrowed him almost 30 years ago. It was a very nice evening spending time with him telling old stories again and having a good time. One of this records he returned to me was by Ja Ja Ja (yes  yes yes) originally released in 1982 on Ata-Tak-label. It was a band located in Düsseldorf with a female singer, Julie Jigsaw from New York which was one of the first ones that brought Rap into German New Wave. The sound is based on a dominant bass that built a fundament for Julies voice. It is different to listen to this music after almost 30 years but it doesn't lost it's fascination over the years (if only it was a sentimental mood for me).

Must have felt like Christmas had come early, Walter. I know I have a few records I would love to get returned to me out of the blue.
