The record gurus behind Turnaround vs. Immediate and Fish n Chips defied the rules of space & time and blended their tastes together perfectly in this new mix. Here's a little explanation from them...

Pop music since it's inception has always been a swirling, contorted amalgamation of melodic, rhythmic, and visual concepts. These concepts have routinely emerged from the combination of unlikely macro-political, economic and artistic forces that for 60-some odd years have dominated airwaves, discotheques, bedrooms and imaginations of generations of young people.

We, the brotherhood of the Turnaround Vs. Immediate & Fish 'N Chips consortium for musical synergy, believe the transatlantic mirroring between the rhythm & melody of the American metropolis, farmland & delta and the British cognition & subsequent reinterpretation of such phenomena is undoubtedly the most captivating & stimulating example of musical symbiosis to date. Dig this if you will: American music rises from the mire of the slave and the immigrant (folk & blues) and captures the imagination of young post-WWII Brits; forms bands like The Rolling Stones, The Small Faces, The Yardbirds, The Beatles. Through a complex system of virtual smoke-signals on each of the Atlantic, the music is wired back Stateside & musicians and producers on both ends up the ante, propelling virtually every genre of pop music, beginning with garage-nuggets, R&B, disco, punk-rock, alternative rock, house, and so on.

To articulate the unification of the great musical output of both of these countries, we figured it proper to conjoin two parties: one's focus on raw soul, funk & psyche (Turnaround Vs. Immediate), the others on Brit-pop, Hacienda-house, Punk-Funk & Factory Records (Fish 'N Chips). The TVI-FNC consortium has drafted a 40 minute sonic-affidavit to illustrate precisely what we're talking about...

We believe there are no coincidences that it's effortless to mix the drum breaks for Stone Roses' "Fools Gold" to Bobby Byrds' "Hot Pants, I'm Comin'" or Stereo MC's "Connected" with Jimmy Bo Horne's "Let Me Be Your Lover." These genres feed off of one another and will prove to be a veritable musical summit on February 18th - our debut is a 2-floor blow-out at Philadelphia's beacon of Bacchanalia, The Barbary (951 Frankford Avenue). Dig into this mix, turn it way up & get the weekend on your mind, we'll see you on the dance floor!
