Karl Hector & The Malcouns – Live at ChoiceCuts, Dublin

Share Button


Karl Hector & The Malcouns are another incarnation of the German funk band Poets Of Rhythm, who are incidentally also The Whitefield Brothers. In 2008 they released the Sahara Swing LP, which combined funk, afro-jazz and psychedelic krautrock to inspire hugemongous erections for music nerds the world over. Since then the band has been quiet, presumably working on their new one as The Whitefield Brothers, meanwhile releasing only 1 single in this incarnation (I posted the bside from it here) The one shred of anything approaching new material that has surfaced recently has been this live show recorded in Dublin.

The set list here contains several selections from Sahara Swing, a couple of tracks that I hope are new material and one or two songs recorded by this band in their other guises. There are also a few covers, among which are a Mulatu Astatke classic and a take on Rob Kanda’s weirdo afro-psych favorite “Make it fast, make it slow” which the nerds should recognize as the original to J.Dilla’s “Make it fast”.
