1. Blind Arcade Meets Super Weird Substance In The Morphogenetic Field (Greg Wilson Mixtape)

Blind Arcade Meets Super Weird Substance In The Morphogenetic Field (Greg Wilson Mixtape)

STARRING KERMIT LEVERIDGE, EVM128 & THE REYNOLDS FEATURING BB. JAMES (LEAD VOCAL 'GIVE IT AWAY') Uplifting, life-affirming, and perfectly timed for the summer months - cobbled together, Heath Robinson stylee, more by serendipity than design, into a coherent whole by DJ / Producer Greg Wilson. Most of the tracks featured are by Blind Arcade (Kermit Leveridge & EVM128), either existing demos or works in progress, but the mixtape is also peppered with half-a-dozen GW edits, lyrically laced to bubble the Super Weird stew – the constant presence, and main ingredient, being Kermit, for it's his inspirational tale of faith and redemption at the very core of this morphogenetic mixtape. Following on from the Ruthless Rap Assassins and Black Grape, we believe that this is his greatest musical odyssey, drawing from the deep wells of his own mythos and logos. There were 3 frontmen in the Rap Assassins, 2 in Black Grape, but now, for the first time, Kermit steps to the fore – no longer to be described by such a limited term as 'rapper', but as a sabre-skilled vocal chameleon, his shades and depths ranging from wise old soul to lovestruck adolescent, invoking his many I's as a cast of compelling characters, both comic book and close–up personal, whilst, in trickster tradition, keeping us on our toes, not knowing what to expect next. Let me take you by the hand So you know what's going on Let me take you step by step On a journey that won't take too long Come let me show you Reality is not what it seems It's all a construct And what you see might not be real Kermit Leveridge – The Construct Accompanying blog post (inclusive of tracklisting): http://www.gregwilson.co.uk/2014/06/blind-arcade-meets-super-weird-substance-in-the-morphogenetic-field/ Check out our Super Weird sounds at: https://superweirdsubstance.bandcamp.com Interview re Super Weird Substance: http://thepool-london.com/loop/greg-wilson-qa-on-blind-arcade-meets-super-weird-substance-in-the-morphogenetic-field.html Thanks to all who contributed to the various stages of recording – Blind Arcade’s Kermit Leveridge & EVM128, of course, studio engineer Derek Kaye, singers BB.

2. Greg Wilson Featuring The Reynolds 'Summer Came My Way' - Luxxury Club Mix

Greg Wilson Featuring The Reynolds 'Summer Came My Way' - Luxxury Club Mix

SWS001 - Greg Wilson Featuring The Reynolds 'Summer Came My Way', the first release on the new Super Weird Substance label - release date June 22nd 2015. Vinyl & Digital available here: http://bit.ly/SWS-001 Compilation CD available here: http://bit.ly/SWS-CD001 This is the full length Luxxury club mix, you can hear the radio version on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MynCxEQ4DyI Having been one of his biggest festival tunes in the summer of 2014, the Luxxury mix of Greg Wilson’s 'Summer Came My Way' - which originally surfaced on last year’s 'Schooled In The Classics' 12” - was put on the back burner throughout the winter in readiness for a full 2015 release. Juxtaposed by Walter Ego’s equally sublime take on the track, the release marks the first of eight records to be issued over the summer months. Sometimes composition is a long and arduous process, other times a song arrives fully formed. The latter was the case for Greg when he imagined 'Summer Came My Way' as a vehicle for hitherto unknown vocal forces of nature, The Reynolds - twins Katherine and the song’s lead singer Carmel - who, by beautiful serendipity happened to live within a mile of Greg’s Merseyside home. Bursting out of LA with a lavish twelve-part re-edit series last year, Luxxury’s brand of hazy, slo-mo reworks - a West Coast Balaeric fusion - has catapulted him onto the world stage. Opening his mammoth eight- hour Berghain set in 2013 with Luxxury’s 'Hotel California' rework, Greg helped bring his Los Angeles vibes to wider attention, bolstered by his subsequent support of other reworks; 'Night Fever' and 'Riders On The Storm'. A victim of his own success, 'Hotel California' gained Luxxury a little too much notoriety and, after a Wall Street Journal interview began circulating, Warner came down on him like a ton of bricks on finding out he’d used The Eagles’ multitracks. All was resolved however and he’s currently recording his forthcoming album, with great things expected for 2015 and beyond. The Luxxury approach perfectly fitted Greg’s vision of the song and the result is a glorious nine-minute epic, just in time for the summer. With releases on the legendary Ninja Tune, San Francisco’s murky Symbols and Kerri Chandler’s jackin’ MadTech, Walter Ego’s appeal stretches across the board; from forward thinking house to rough and ready grime. Having got to know the Sheffield musician during recent years, Greg was impressed by what he heard, especially an as yet unreleased project he was working on in collaboration with London singer, Obenewa. Inviting him to remix the track, Walter returned an ethereal yet mechanical take on 'Summer Came My Way', his delicately decaying synths and cold hydraulic rhythm giving the track a brooding quality and placing The Reynolds in an entirely new context.

3. Sweet Tooth T 'She Can't Love You / Feel The Same' - Greg Wilson Club Mix

Sweet Tooth T 'She Can't Love You / Feel The Same' - Greg Wilson Club Mix

SWS002 - Sweet Tooth T 'She Can't Love You / Feel The Same', the second release on the new Super Weird Substance label - release date July 6th 2015. Vinyl & Digital available here: http://bit.ly/SWS-002 Compilation CD available here: http://bit.ly/SWS-CD001 This is the full length Greg Wilson club mix, you can hear the radio version on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvNt2fcqMhM When disco was declared dead in 1979, dance music was forced back underground, leading to one of its most creative periods. Moving into the eighties, post-disco producers were allowed to explore the new technologies emerging at the time with little corrupting influence from the mainstream and New York became a hub for the new electro-funk and boogie sounds. Having built his reputation playing the latest US dance imports at Wigan Pier and Manchester’s Legend and Haçienda in the early eighties, DJ Greg Wilson is indebted to that sound and has paid homage to many of the cult hits of the era through his reworks and edits. Greg had originally intended to edit Chemise’s 1982 underground cut 'She Can’t Love You', cherry picking the best parts from the original and dub mix. However this proved unsatisfactory, so instead he decided to take on a full cover, approaching Tyrrell; the guy who did such a brilliant job of recreating Massive Attack and the Rolling Stones - mashed up with Amerie - on his 2005 P.T.A release, which Greg then reconstructed into 'Two Sides of Sympathy', one of his most enduring edits. Having recorded the backing track back in 2011, he needed to find the right vocalist. His first thoughts were to approach Adeline Michele, the singer from Brooklyn disco outfit, Escort. This never materialised and, apart from a fleeting fancy for recording it with NYC based Lady Miss Kier, formerly of Deee-Lite, the track was put in mothballs for a couple of years, until he dug it out just a few months ago to play it to The Reynolds, who’d sang so superbly on his track 'Summer Came My Way'. Katherine Reynolds took on the lead and Greg instantly knew the song had found its voice. Not only that, Katherine also expertly weaved lyrics from Triple X’s 1999 'Feel The Same' into the track to give it a new twist. Greg road-tested the recording in a club for the first time in London last December and it’s since become a crowd favourite - the release is greatly anticipated by DJs and dancers alike. Kermit Leveridge, who has worked with The Reynolds on his Blind Arcade project chipped in with the rap section the girls add and also features on a further mix of 'She Can’t Love You', this time coupled with his own 'C’mon Sway' lyrics. Sweet Tooth T is a project channeling the hallowed sounds of New York in the early eighties but - like with Greg’s DJ sets - the sounds from this groovacious past have been reimagined in a contemporary manner.

4. Greg Wilson @ Super Weird Happening #6 Festival No.6 Portmeirion 05.09.15

Greg Wilson @ Super Weird Happening #6 Festival No.6 Portmeirion 05.09.15

An incredible day all ways up! The Super Weird Sunset in the morning set the tone perfectly with well-being and good vibes music as the artists also set up for the day. Playwright Daisy Eris Campbell ('Cosmic Trigger')and author John Higgs ('Stranger Than We Can Imagine: Making Sense Of The Twentieth Century' and 'The KLF: Chaos, Magic And The Band Who Burned A Million Pounds') fascinated us during the talks, before Stella Grundy powerfully performed a section of her one-woman production 'The Rise And Fall Of A Northern Star', whilst poet JB Barrington well and truly put a smile on our faces with his Salford wit and acute observation. Then it was Howard Marks. The warmth towards him was something else, the area packed to capacity with queueing around the corner the entrance to the Estuary Stage. A true countercultural icon of our times - the respect was tangible. A potent line-up of DJ's followed - Tomlin of the Jam MC's, Luxxury over from LA, and a B2B with Derek Kaye and Peza, as the Estuary grooved into the 2nd half of the Happening Blind Arcade and the Super Weird Society hit the ball out of the court big style - a phenomenal first appearance complete with live musicians. Huge thanks to Black Grape's backing band, who Kermit had hijacked for the event. Then I was on for the finale, and what a climax it turned out to be. The stage was invaded at the end and when I looked to my side, appearing next to me, in a puff of smoke it seemed, was Back To Basics mainman and UK club legend Dave Beer, who turned to me, amidst the wonderful chaos of the moment and exclaimed 'this is seminal'.

7. Alan Moore's Mandrill Meets Super Weird Substance At The Arts Lab Apocalypse (Greg Wilson Mixtape)

Alan Moore's Mandrill Meets Super Weird Substance At The Arts Lab Apocalypse (Greg Wilson Mixtape)

STARRING KERMIT LEVERIDGE & THE REYNOLDS ADDITIONAL VOCALS: THE REVEREND CLEVE FRECKLETON & TRACEY CARMEN More about the project: http://www.superweirdsubstance.com/alan-moore-mandrill-meets-super-weird-substance-arts-lab-apocalypse Obey the Mandrill: www.facebook.com/mandrillifesto Mandrillifesto words by Alan Moore. Big thanks to: Josh Ray, Ché Wilson, Derek Kaye, Joe Brown, James Mellor, Dominic Mandrell, Marcus Hislop, The Arts Lab Northampton. Artwork by Pete Fowler 2017 COMETH THE MOMENT, COMETH THE MANDRILL In times of national demise, speaking historically, the mulch of crumpled dream and culture is a laboratory, that breeds outrageous saviours and monsters without warning; Cromwell, Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Jeremy Corbyn – emerging from a broken world to find a hole they can fill, cometh the moment; cometh the Mandrill. This greed and gore emporium is not how life was meant to be, with franchises and fads reheated from a previous century, and nothing new, a neutered future on the retro record deck, that’s stuck and endlessly repeating in a firebombed discotheque. Your TV’s in a coma and you can’t get it to wake up. What you need is a dictatorial baboon in makeup. Overstated, aggravated and horrifically mutated, here to see that you’re berated. What’s the last thing you created? All those logos on your raiment, brand-name badges of enslavement, drip-fed passive entertainment. Was this your intended statement? When you have nowhere left to stand you'll have to take one. If there’s no culture in the land then you must make one. Psychopathic, charismatic, I could go on but don’t need to: as the higher primate it’s my long-awaited fate to lead you. You have no choice but me, so please do not suggest so. Hear now the poetry of my Mandrillifesto! The light of burning corporations will repaint the sky in grenadine. There’ll be billions of banners and Art Nouveau butterfly bombers like this world has never seen before. We’ll march on ugliness and stupidity. We’ll make loveliness compulsory. And the roar of our orchestra engines will soar evermore in a glorious annihilating symphony, for the tyranny of beauty is our God-given duty. Every child at birth is to be issued with a ukulele, given their own flag and granted absolute and utter sovereignty, and so long as it’s coloured in nicely and has an old woman on, make their own currency. And we’ll turn every urban address into a dripping Rousseau wilderness, and we’ll keep advancing until there’s nobody not dancing. We’ll put politics in the pillory, put the art back in artillery. We can weaponise wonder and our voice shall be as thunder. From times of national demise arise new apes like me, with, in our leopard-scaring eyes, manifest destiny. I’ll lead you to a fluorescent utopia if you’ll let me: love me, worship me, obey me – but never pet me. If we can’t build a future then we’ll be its human landfill. So… Cometh the moment, cometh the Mandrill. (Repeat until indoctrinated)

10. The Reynolds 'Don't You Worry Baby The Best Is Yet To Come' - Greg Wilson & Peza Club Mix

The Reynolds  'Don't You Worry Baby The Best Is Yet To Come' - Greg Wilson & Peza Club Mix

SWS005 - The Reynolds 'Don't You Worry Baby The Best Is Yet To Come' the fifth release on the new Super Weird Substance label - release date August 14th 2015. Vinyl & Digital available here: http://bit.ly/SWS-005 Compilation CD available here: http://bit.ly/SWS-CD001 This is the full length Greg Wilson & Peza club mix, you can hear the radio version on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHZUVedVtXw The resplendent vocal versatility of The Reynolds has been indispensable to Greg Wilson's Super Weird Substance label over the first four releases and, as such, they have duly been awarded their debut solo release, mixed by Greg and Peza. Although only young, The Seacombe-based twins perform like veterans and in this case they have masterfully taken on Bessie Banks' 'Don't You Worry Baby The Best Is Yet To Come' - a cult Blackpool Mecca classic from the mid-70s. By playing contemporary disco alongside 60's soul rarities the Mecca was at the centre of the famous Northern Soul schism which put the venue at odds with the music policy of Wigan Casino. Whilst the Casino is remembered as the more famous venue, it's arguable that - via its most influential DJ's Ian Levine and Colin Curtis - more classic tracks were unveiled in Blackpool than anywhere else. The Mecca operated during normal club hours, closing at 2am, whereas the Casino was an all-nighter from 2am-8am - subsequently a number of people would leave the Mecca around 1am to get to the Casino for opening. This led to the final hour at the Mecca becoming more experimental and compilation albums have been made focusing purely on records that became popular there during this timeframe - 'Don't You Worry Baby The Best Is Yet To Come' being one, a Colin Curtis special. It's such an obscure track that - unless you were there in Blackpool in '76 - it's unlikely you'll have ever have heard of it, having never been issued in the UK. The original vocalist Bessie Banks is best-known for her early 60's hit 'Go Now!' - later covered by the Moody Blues, gifting them their breakthrough hit. Written by Clyde Otis and Banks' husband of the time, Herman Kelly - legendary in hip hop circles for 'Let's Dance To The Drummer's Beat' - 'Don't You Worry Baby The Best Is Yet To Come' was released in 1976, two years before Kelly's heavily sampled break. Lending his hand to the recording and mixing once again, Peza cements an ever-fruitful association with producer Greg Wilson, as the Wolverhampton-based DJ and musician takes on a international focus, working with Chen Shi-Zheng in Shanghai on a project opening in New York - on the back of a mutual association with Damon Albarn. The Reynolds are currently recording further tracks with the intention of a debut album release in 2016. The diversity of sound and nuanced vocal ability of the twins first surfaced on last year's 'Blind Arcade Meets Super Weird Substance In The Morphogenetic Field' mixtape and has become a hallmark of the label since.

Greg Wilson @ The JAMs Graduation Ball Invisible Wind Factory Liverpool 25.08.17

The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu made their return in Liverpool and proved they're just as visionary and unpredictable as ever. 23 years on from burning a million quid on the Scottish Isle of Jura, Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty took 400 'volunteers' on a journey through a series of bewildering and highly exciting 'situations', adding to their already heady mythos with their '2023' trilogy before unveiling their most ambitious project yet; The People's Pyramid. This is a recording of Greg Wilson at the final Graduation Ball, where he played on a bill alongside DJ Food and the much hyped #BadgerKull.

17. Kermit Leveridge & The Super Weird Society 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' - Greg Wilson & Peza Club Mix

Kermit Leveridge & The Super Weird Society 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' - Greg Wilson & Peza Club Mix

SWS003 - Kermit Leveridge & The Super Weird Society 'I Wanna Be Your Dog', the third release on the new Super Weird Substance label - release date July 17th 2015. Vinyl & Digital available here: http://bit.ly/SWS-003 Compilation CD available here: http://bit.ly/SWS-CD001 This is the full length Greg Wilson & Peza club mix, you can hear the radio version on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzaVDG8DMOo Touching on punk territory as early as 1969, The Stooges’ 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' captured the beginnings of the transformation from the optimistic sixties to the disaffected seventies and laid the foundations for the next generation’s sound. Raw and simplistic, yet extremely powerful - it’s incredible to think that this song has been around for forty-six years. The idea to bring the proto-punk classic into the now with a dance version - aimed at festival audiences as well as the clubs - was one of those crazy notions that somehow works out perfectly, given the right ingredients that is. Kermit was initially skeptical of the idea but once he heard the framework of the reimagined version, he quickly signed up to the idiosyncratic vision and took on the Iggy Pop role with aplomb. This is the first solo release by Kermit Leveridge of Blind Arcade, one of Manchester’s true groove innovators; helping give the city - and the country for that matter - one of its first breakdancing crews, Broken Glass before becoming a member of one the UK’s most influential hip hop acts, the Ruthless Rap Assassins, then eventually hooking up with Happy Monday Shaun Ryder to form the chart topping Black Grape, who’ve recently reformed for an anniversary tour. Kermit’s heroin addiction may have taken him to the brink of self- destruction but during recent years he’s been a redeemed man on an artistic mission. This newfound outlook helped yield last year’s mixtape 'Blind Arcade Meets Super Weird Substance In The Morphogenetic Field', regenerating his association with Greg Wilson, who had previously managed Broken Glass and the Rap Assassins, who he also produced. On the back of a whole series of quality reworks, including Blind Arcade’s The Construct, Wolverhampton based DJ and musician Peza was brought into the mix and has done a great job with programming / keyboards, whilst Greg’s son, Ché Wilson plays a mean guitar, summoning the raw energy of punk’s past in a furious solo courtesy of a Cort X-6 guitar given to Kermit by Joe Strummer - and, by adding their deadpan backing vocals to the fray, The Reynolds tie the track together perfectly.
