Total Coelo – I Eat Cannibals (US 12″)

Originally posted October 3, 2010

“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.

Happy Halloween!

Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on October 25, 2010. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Dracula’s Tango (Sucker For Your Love)” was a 1982 single by 1980’s British new wave group Toto Coelo (renamed Total Coelo in the U.S.) masterminded by producer Barry Blue. “Dracula’s Tango (Sucker For Your Love)” was the follow up to the groups hit single I Eat Cannibals”. In the UK “Dracula’s Tango” peaked at #54 and in Australia reached the #19 position. In the United States the single failed to chart making the group a one hit wonder in that country.
