SWEET TOOTH T – SHE CAN’T LOVE YOU / FEEL THE SAME [GREG WILSON RADIO MIX]

If you’ve missed the news of Greg Wilson’s Super Weird Substance then you’d better take a look at what’s coming through this laidback label. Good luck trying to pigeon hole what the’ll be releasing exactly but its something a bit like… balear​icpsyc​hedeli​cdubdi​sco. On the live side you’ll discover the SWS team hosting sixties styled ‘Happe​nings’ that include talks, art, bands and DJs.

Eight singles in all will be released during the summer, the label setting out its stall ahead of albums in late 2015 and 2016, whilst a showcase all-day Happening at Festival No.6 in Portmeirion takes its live ambitions to a new level.

Review: Super Weird Happenings

Oslo in Hackney, was a damn good place to be alive this weekend. We were reminded of this by Kermit Leveridge’s emphatic performance last night that punctuated the rebirth of his musical career. A rebirth of both the musical and literal sense as Kermit came all too close to death after contracting septicaemia as the result of injecting with a dirty needle in the late 90s.

It was an evening of true celebration, the last series of Super Weird Happenings, curated by Greg Wilson and Kermit Leveridge that have been taking place across the country.

Early attenders were treated to a debate chaired by one of the country’s most prominent writers on black music, Lloyd Bradley (author of ‘Bass Culture’, a Reggae history, and ‘Sounds Like London’). The panel included Greg, Kermit and Daisy Eris Campbell, a playwright who is about to stage her production of ‘Cosmic Trigger’. Amongst things discussed was the concept  that now might be a timely moment for a younger generation to look back on their musical heritage in order to move things forward within the industry.

As topics were discussed the room buzzed with a collection of artists who created hallucinatory live pieces inspired by the counter culture spirit of the event.

Then the music began. Walter Ego kicking off with a mix of both new and old Afro Latin dance tunes and ended with a foray into Garage and bass heavy cuts.

Just before midnight, Kermit Leveridge took to the stage with is new band Blind Arcade to deliver a set flavoured with essence of 60’s motown soul, dubwise and gospel. A knowing audience responded to an electric performance by Kermit and his ensemble, finishing with the lyrically sentimental “Damn, it’s good to be alive”. The epitome of his own journey of redemption.

Finally Greg Wilson took to the decks, opening with a driving re-edit of Stevie Wonder’s Superstitious. An evening that had been swelling with anticipation truly took off.

Super Weird Happenings was an experiment to find if an event could act as an antidote to much of the current scene’s lack of emotion. It was an event that brought some heartfelt feeling back into music. Aligned to the beat of a different drum and veering away from the recent proliferation of music which has arguably lost its soul, it evoked the spirit of positivity that marked out former times.

We can’t wait to hear what Greg and Kermit have in store for us in 2015, but we’re sensing some sort of Super Weird festival is afoot…
