“I Eat Cannibals” was the debut single by British new wave group Toto Coelo (renamed Total Coelo in the US). The single reached No. 8 in the UK Singles Chart and was also a hit in many other countries, including South Africa where it was named the seventeenth biggest selling single of 1983, peaking at No. 3, while it only got as high as No. 66 in the U.S. in early 1983.

The solid drum sound that underpins the single was provided by session drummer Peter Boita. Boita received a demo cassette from producer Barry Blue and proceeded to score out a drum part that fitted the song. He programmed his Linndrum Computer with the basic drumbeat that is heard throughout the record. Boita also used this same technique on the B-side of the follow-up single, “Mucho Macho”, but, apart from a few television appearances, the single failed to make much impression on the charts.

Sly Fox – Let’s Go All The Way (Multi-Mix) (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on February 27th, 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Let’s Go All the Way” is a song by American group Sly Fox. Released as a single in December 1985 from their debut studio album of the same name, the record entered the Billboard chart on December 28 and went Top 10 in both the U.S. and the UK. Despite receiving considerable commercial and critical success, the group failed to match expectations with their later singles, and are sometimes referred to as a one-hit wonder.

When released, the song was a top 10 hit in the US, peaking at number seven, after reaching number three in the UK Singles Chart earlier in the year. AllMusic notes that “the song’s oddball mix of hip-hop, Latin pop, disco, and new wave, crossed radio formats, from R&B to Top-40 to ‘Rock of the ‘80s’ stations ruled by the Smiths and the Cure.” On the strength of the single’s multiformat success, the band’s album hit the Top 40 in two formats as well, peaking at number 31 on the Top 200 Albums chart and at number 34 on the Top R&B Albums chart.

Released for the Europen market The ‘Multi-Mix’ remix by Les “Mix Doctor” Adams of DMC contains samples of “We Will Rock You” by Queen and “A Fly Girl” by Boogie Boys.

Posted by DjPaulT on February 26th, 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“How Can The Labouring Man Find Time For Self-Culture?”was the first single released by American new wave band Martini Ranch. The track features Andrew Todd and american actor Bill Paxton on lead vocals along with three members of DEVO.

“How Can The Labouring Man Find Time For Self-Culture?” was produced and engineered by DEVO guitarist Bob Casale and also featured drummer Alan Myers and vocalist Mark Mothersbaugh on keyboards.

A music vodeo was filmed directed by Rocky Schenck, Bill Paxton and Andrew Rosenthal, the video mimics the dystopia of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis and German Expressionism.

Aside from Rosenthal and Paxton, the cast of the video features cameos by actors associated with Paxton. Anthony Michael Hall, with whom Bill Paxton starred in the 1985 film Weird Science and Rick Rossovich, who appeared with Paxton in The Lords of Discipline, Streets of Fire and The Terminator, represent intellectual class and working class men.

Other appearances include Michael Biehn (The Lords of Discipline and The Terminator) and Judge Reinhold (The Lords of Discipline).

This would be the bands final single. Martini Ranch released one album titled “Holy Cow”.

Martini Ranch – Reach (US 12″)

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

2015 Re-Rip!
Meticulously Remastered!

Originally posted May 6, 2011

“Reach” was the second single released by new wave band Martini Ranch conceived in 1982 by Andrew Todd Rosenthal. The band was composed of Rosenthal (vocals and guitar) and actor Bill Paxton (voices and samples), and featured a similar sound to late 1980s Devo. “Reach” also features actor Judge Reinhold (of Beverly Hills Cop fame) as the Whistler on the song.

“Reach” failed to have any chart success but the music video directed by James Cameron (Titanic) recieved heavy airplay on MTV and VH-1. The production included cameos from Cameron’s soon-to-be-wife, fellow director Kathryn Bigelow, as well as Aliens and Terminator alumni Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser and Jenette Goldstein, Judge Reinhold, Brian Thompson, and Adrian Pasdar (the video is roughly contemporaenous with the production of Bigelow’s Near Dark, the cast of which included Henricksen, Goldstein, and Pasdar as well as Paxton). Also seen is Bud Cort, as the crazy person admiring Bill Paxton’s motorcycle. There is also a memorable scene with the three band members Rosenthal, Paxton and keyboardist O’Hearn being dragged through the dust.

The “Untitled” track on the b-side is a short instrumental. It is not listed on the record label or sleeve.
