“The children say…”
And here we have Chicago by way of London, Belgium, Detroit, and, well, Chicago.
Before William “Bud” LaTour scored a hit with People Are Still Having Sex he was a frequent contributor to the Dr. Demento Show. Bud worked as a studio musician on a number of house records, and also got exposure to the Wax Trax gang through the Chicago studio circuit.
Jamie Principle first released It’s A Cold World in conjunction with Frankie Knuckles on Trax Records. The re-recorded version here was produced by Steve “Silk” Hurley and released in 1989. I’ve always preferred this slower, smoother version.
Fred is otherwise known as Fred Giannelli, a Boston-born musician who became part of Psychic TV in the late ’80s, and collaborated with Genesis P. Orridge during their acid house phase. Rosebud was on his first solo EP, relased on Wax Trax in 1991.
Apart from Pet Shop Boys, none of these artists have appeared in previous episodes.
