Fila Brazillia (Post All Tips Here)

In 1990 Dave 'man' Mcsherry and Steve Cobby began to record as fila brazillia. hitherto their collaborations had been infrequent and ultra-spontaneous. both had maintained positions in conventional bands but needed to trade the constraints of the "write - rehearse - gig - record" treadmill for a more fluent, and ultimately enjoyable approach. a nursery period for a music culled from sonic experiments and ideas quickly put to tape emerged. a treatment of all sounds as "objet trouve" and a hobbyist attitude prevailed.

When dave brennand a.k.a. porky heard a piece composed on a wet wednesday, he asked to release it. they happily agreed. as previous unreleased work hadn't warranted anything but comedy monickers - "dada black sheep" being one - a name was needed. at that time the media's "killer dog frenzy" was in full swing and a breed known as the fila brasiliero was the subject of a debate in the commons. this was misheard on the radio by Steve, proposed and accepted for the single and eventually the name stuck. the track "mermaids", was fila brazillia's first single, released in spring 1991,and marked the beginning of a decade which saw fila yield seven highly acclaimed albums and a skip full of singles on pork recordings and over 60 remixes. fila's reputation as sonic twisters spread far and wide.

In parallel to all this activity another plot was developing in south yorks. for a short time in 1988, steve worked at fon studios in sheffield. that studio was owned and run by chakk -- one of whose members was simeon lister. steve and sim developed a friendship that came to musical fruition with 'heights of abraham' who released 2 cds also on pork. when fila left Pork to set up 23 in '99 the perfect choice for label manager was Mr Lister. sim, man and steve form the triumverate that is 23 records.

the long awaited new fila brazilla - their old codes meet some new
chaos in a bit of a departure from the traditional fila sound - but
they still sound the same, for some strange reason.

Haven't heard this new one, but don't miss Luck Be A Wierdo Tonight- totally funky and quite psychotic. Gotta love that rabbit as well...           ---------------------------------------------

Always had a major soft-spot for the Fila boys.... Great vibe..... and pretty varied..
Love track 2 of Jump Leads...
Also, highly recommend "Brazilification" which is all their remixes.... double cd..
First album I got into was "Maim that Tune".... Nice, warm 'n' jazzy..... Worth exploring their label too "Pork Recordings"... Some pretty cool stuff on that too....
