“Do you have a name for the studio?” - Bill Drummond
“No, too busy with building the thing.” - A La Fu
“How about Studio 23?” - Jimmy Cauty
And so it goes.
After many months of meticulous planning and impatience, Va Va Records are pleased to announce the first project recorded and edited at our new studio headquarters with would you adam and eve it, pop music’s greatest provocateurs Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty, aka The Jams, aka The KLF, aka The Timelords (to name but a few handles).
Our man A La Fu has been working with Bill Drummond on a handful of projects over the past few years and after being asked to perform at the closing of Drummonds 'The 25 Paintings' exhibition they even duetted together with a version of ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow?’ by The Shirelles, naturally.
As you may know Cauty and Drummond have completed their 23 year moratorium this year and returned as The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu. To celebrate they have written a book titled ‘2023’, a trilogy described by the governors as a “utopian costume drama, set in the near future, written in the recent past”.
It is the audio version of the book that has been recorded and edited by A La Fu and narrated by Daisy Campbell in the brand new Cauty christened, Studio 23.
We are very pleased to announce that we will be presenting the new Jacob Yates L.P. entitled ‘GOTHS!!!’ The release will include the singles ‘The Gospel According To The Selfish Gene’ and ‘Care Home’. We’re just waiting for the final mix and master and we’ll then post the release dates as soon as we have them in place.
In the meantime, to celebrate we’ve managed to secure some copies of the much sought after and long since out of print first album ‘Luck’ in both vinyl and CD formats as well as the debut 7″ singles ‘Can’t Stop’ & ‘When You Left Me’ that were released on Re:peater Records. You can find them on our shop page here. But be quick, limited numbers only.
This wee film puts together a visionary, an architect, an entrepreneur, an engineer and a club owner. The music for the film is produced by Va Va Records beauties A La Fu and Zubuntu.
Part two of the short films shows us ‘The Power Of Dance’ on the aforementioned sustainable dance floor. Music by A La Fu on this one… still not sure about that ‘Techno’ dance though.
