And The Beat Goes On – The Whispers

I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here: https://mobro.co/harry-mo

Hey there disco fans! This is a 1979 classic from the vaults. Slinky, feel-good straight out of Cali. Turn up the central heating, close your eyes and imagine it’s Summer.

THIS IS THE FINAL POST IN NOVEMBER. I’VE MADE IT!!! And what ‘tashes to end on – massive props to the moustache game going on with these guys. Get ready to enjoy a tonne of new music from tomorrow.

Bonus track: recognise those chords? Yeah, it’s from here

70s & 80s funk selection

I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here: https://mobro.co/harry-mo

Moustaches were so. hip. in the 80s. They were so ubiquitous that today I have not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but 5 artists to present to you. It is almost the end of the month after all!

First up, funk anthem. Sex symbols. Paragon of facial hair. Saying what you were all thinking. It’s the late, great Errol Brown as Hot Chocolate.

Next, a ‘get yo’self to the dancefloor’ number from The Brothers Johnson, Stomp!

Smoothness from Keni Burke. Just look at the fella. Old-school pimp.

Though this guy remains in relative obscurity, you’ll know this funky number from it’s samples. Ronnie Hudson and his ‘tash coming at ya.

Finally, maybe the biggest of them all, Wild Cherry, with Play That Funky Music. You know the one.

If you loved this post and you are thirsting for some more 80s goodness. Check out this playlist for 4.5 hours-worth:

Kick, Push – Lupe Fiasco

I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here: https://mobro.co/harry-mo

Not Lupe’s most famous, but my favourite. Kick, Push is a lovable little rap track about finding love on a skateboard. “Just a rebel looking for a place to be.” Aren’t we all Lupe. Aren’t we all.

The album is Food & Liquor, check it out if you like what you hear.

All Along the Watchtower – Jimi Hendrix

I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here: https://mobro.co/harry-mo

If I could transport myself back to any concert in history, I’d go to 1969 Woodstock. Jimi Hendrix played one of the longest sets of his career and the festival itself is a part of counter-cultural folklore. There are some moments in history when music wraps itself into the social consciousness – this was one of them.

Little Lion Man – Mumford & Sons

Something rocky for you this Sunday. Not many people do anthemic indie-rock better than Mumford & Sons, and boy is Little Lion Man a classic. If you want more Mumford they have a new album out, Delta, and they are on tour too.

Bonus track: hey, I’m posting Mumford & Sons today. Have a bit of this.

September – Earth, Wind & Fire

I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here: https://mobro.co/harry-mo

Help yourself to a bit of this funk classic. It has to be up there with the biggest of all time. Glossy vocals, jaunty bass and positively grinning horns. It all adds up to a beaut of a track from Earth, Wind & Fire.

Bonus track: #Notjustaonehitwonder

Bonus track #2: Because why not? Rainbow Unicorn.
