Tim Maia, Rational Culture / Pointer Sisters, Yes We Can Can

Lamenting the appalling sound during Nicky Siano’s set at The Forum on Friday night (and possibly a bit of slightly sketchy mixing from the maestro himself – playing like me DJing drunk at a wedding and whacking up the master and EQs every time he got excited and distorting the heck out of what would have otherwise been a stellar set, although without a monitor I’m happy to give him the benefit of the doubt), I consoled myself to listening to his Gallery compilation.

Listening to the opening of the Pointer Sisters’ Yes We Can Can, @Radiowammo started singing, “We’re gonna rule the world, don’t you know, don’t you know”. I stopped short of slapping him around the chops, Batman-style – “Fool! That’s Tim Maia!” – because actually these tunes are completely on the same groove. And equally killer too.
