IGOR TAMERLAN - LANGKAH PERTAMA / GURUH SUKARNO - UNTUKMU INDONESIAKU



Here's a promotion lp for radio stations, on the A side Igor Tamerlan and on the B side Guruh Sukarno....

Last post 2019.... 1646 postings this year, pretty crazy really, a new record, almost a hundred more postings then last year, somebody should inform the Guinness Book Of Records :) (I can use the price money for sure :) ) And I wasn't even here for some three and a half months this year.... Loads of re-posts, partly because of dead links, partly because it has become VERY hard to find new stuff these days, there's just too many people hunting records and cassettes these days, local collectors and an endless stream of foreign collectors.... When I started collecting vinyl here, some 20 years ago sellers would ask me, why do you buy all this garbage? Those same sellers are now frantically trying to find vinyl, emas hitam they call it now, black gold.... How times have changed.... On top of that, I just can't afford it anymore, prices have gone through the roof and A LOT has happened to me this year, personal stuff that I'm not going to go into here but that has affected and will keep affecting me... I've got some plans, starting something up, more on that later if it will go through and if it does go through I won't be able to blog as much as I have anymore... Not planning to stop though :)

I wanna thank all you visitors and I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2020!

BLACK BROTHERS - SPECIAL ALBUM


Cool cd from the Black Brothers....

From Wikipedia:

Black Brothers was a well-known West Papuan pop group from Jayapura. The band consisted of five members, led by Andy Ayamiseba. Their music, sung in Tok Pisin, and originally in Indonesian, included influences from reggae and political elements inspired by the Black Power movement. The group went into voluntary exile in Vanuatu in 1979, protesting Indonesian policies in West Papua. They later moved to Papua New Guinea.

Black Brothers were the most popular musical group in New Guinea during the 1980s. The reggae influences of the Black Brothers influenced various other musical groups in Papua New Guinea.

From what I understand they put out quiet a few albums when they were staying in Papua New Guinea, those I don't have and those are the albums where their reggae influences were the most strong, I've got some of their (extremely rare) albums that came out here in Indonesia and those albums are mostly pop songs with the occasional funk banger.....

As far as West-Papua goes.... I've written about that on this blog before.... Right now it's still closed off for journalists, things are pretty bad in Boven Digoel, I'll just give you this link if you are interested:
