CLUB ENSEMBLE, Tip-Top-Slop, 1963

club-ensemble-frontclub-ensemble-backclub-ensemble-label At the moment, I´m staying in Budapest together with the staff of Jungle World.  Our brand new all-Hungarian issue will come out on Thursday. It will contain a wide array of cultural and political topics, including some critical commentary regarding the country´s current situation. Each year I´m appointed to find local Hungarian cartoonists for a double-spread of comics in full color. So far Dániel Csordas, Gróf Balázs and András Halter have promised to contribute. Hopefully, the amazing  Zoltán Fehér will also be included

Of course, there was also some time to go record shopping. The city has a good selection of record stores and I did find some cool records, but recording it will have to wait until I get back home. So, for the time being, here´s a re-up of an old Hungarian record that I posted back in 2009.

I still don´t know anything about this Hungarian ensemble, not even if they really were from Hungary. But actually there´s not much to know.

Tip-Top-Slop is a standard semi-rock instrumental played by a studio group. But both these songs are not bad. Not great but not bad. People obsess over much worse music nowadays.

And at least you have probably never heard these tunes before…
