Singapore A-Go-Go

Chicks on Beat NO.7.These 12 supercharged beat-a-go-go tracks defy a common held belief that the Chinese couldn’t rock, groove, or swing back in the 1960’s.The vocals are sung in the dialects of Mandarin and Hokkien and they soar with catchy hooks atop groovy, clever beats. There’s plenty of electric guitar, organ, and crazy percussion rocking and twisting behind it all, at times reaching quite a mad and freaky state of affairs.Every single cut is a winner and it never lets up from start to finish.Or in the words of Yvonne & The Sparklers:Let's Go Gay.

  1. Hi!

    Really like your "Singapore A-Go-Go" compilation... It's just so hard to find this Asian Sounds. Especially interesting, as I am currently studying Chinese Language in China - but all these Mandarin Pop Sounds from the 60ies and 70ies are not to be found in China. Is this compilation of your a kind of "best of..." of the same selection of music on the sublimefrequencies label?

    Cheers; DubMe
