Here you are! A second batch with essential tunes from the hallowed nights of the Hoochie Koo. To some, this is dancefloor material. Some of these versions you won't find anywhere else. The Hoochie Koo is a high-octane extravaganza inspired by the risqué rock 'n' roll lifestyle of the early days, delivering an explosive mix of rare '50s/'60s tunes, a live -- Soundsystem for the dancefloor, Gogo dancing -- and the raunchiest Burlesque in town. Big thanks to all the queens and cowboys, frenetic musicians, sultry showgirls, and self-acclaimed dancing kings. A big shout to the collaborating venues for helping us set a benchmark. And the almighty Bassy Club, that will stay in our hearts forever... The music: "Crazy Lover" sets the mood. "Thunder" is tweaked a bit to kindle the floor, followed by the "Earthshaker" featuring the crazy honking of our sax-player, Florent. "Rock-a-Chika" is an homage to the leader of our go-go team, because her name is Chika! "Bassy Boogaloo" had been recorded years ago at one of our wild nights at the infamous Bassy Club (R.I.P). "Snacky De Odorou" is the soundtrack for the quirkiest burlesque performer at Hoochie Koo: Snacky The Drag King! Furthermore: a hiccup rock, the Nabout dance, atmospheric surf. Features Richard Berry, Bob Taylor & The Counts, The Lancasters, Warner Mack, Henry Cording, Hoochie Krew, Hajime Kaidou, Claude François, The Atmospheres, Dario Moreno.
