Egon’s Funk Archaeology at NPR: A Lo-Fi Report From Indonesia

Now-Again | Dec. 2, 2010 | Picks |

Egon’s latest entry to his Funk Archaeology series at NPR sheds some light on his forthcoming anthology Those Shocking Shaking Days: Indonesia Hard, Psychedelic, Progressive Rock and Funk 1970-1978. Indonesia’s various 70s scenes were dense, but often times underground; this piece sheds light on not only the process he and fellow record collectors and archivists Jason Connoy and Chandra Drews had to go through in the discovery process, but also on a forthcoming (hopefully?) Madlib/Indonesian collaboration, of sorts, for the discussed, but not-yet-realized, Supreme Team project.

    I was not aware of this must_be-highly-appreciated effort until I saw the cover lp of “Those Shocking Shaking Days: Indonesia Hard, Psychedelic, Progressive Rock and Funk 1970-1978″ displayed in a music store in Jakarta last weekend. The release of this compilation in lp, cd & mp3 format has awaken a long lost forgotten memories in me, reminiscent of those politically oppressive yet care-free days in Indonesia. It’s almost my story of growing up in the city Bandung, the scene where most of those music came from persons which some of them I knew personally. My respect and admiration for Egon, Chandra Drews, Jason ‘Moss’ Connoy and nowagainrecords.com !!!
