Funky Friday

Back in the early 80s a band appeared named by a song by Dave Brubeck. Blue Rondo A La Turk were one of thosse bands a lot of my friends could agree with. Mainly influenced by Latin, Jazz and Pop they had a small success with Klactoveesedsteen.I saw them once live and they were totally different to all the other acts around. Dressed in sharp suits and wearing a tie they looked so different to all the punk and new wave bands. Later this Outfit ended in that so called New Romantic thing. It was a small Club in Munich and they played a real good concert with a lot of Improvisation of their Songs. Dominant was the funky bass and guitar added with a fantastic horn section. The band didn't exist for Long time and a few members moved to Matt Bianco. What I forgot was that this song was produced by Godley & Creme - but this is a story that should be told to another time.

Have a good weekend
