A Guy Called Gerald

has maintained a career in the transient world of dance music through constant innovation. He made drum & bass before the genre even was invented. Prior to that the Jamaican born Mancunian scored the first British house hit with «Voodoo Ray» and he also was a founding member of cult-act 808 State. Boundaries are set to be torn down, must be Gerald Simpson’s motto. 

a song that reminds you of school
Adam & The Ants - Antmusic

It was like post new-vogue punk that was going on at the time. I think the reason it stood out for me was because it was very percussive - it had this real tribal thing crossed with punk. I just remember kids turning up at school with war paints on, hair plaited and them being sent home.


your boozed up anthem
Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit

Makes me want to drink loads of booze.


a song guaranteed to make you feel depressed
Sade - Love Is Stronger Than Pride
a record you fell in love to
Mantronix - Bassline
first record you remember
Jimmy Cliff - The Harder They Come

I was 3 or 4 years old, sat on the couch at home and the music would have been on a Blaupunkt radiogram hi-fi thing. Early 70’s in Moss Side Manchester.

the song to be played at your funeral

I’m working on it.

a song that evokes the greatest summer of your life
G.L.O.B.E. & The Whizz Kid - Play That Beat Mr DJ.

It was the summer of linos and windmills into headspins. I was living in Rusholme Manchester and hanging out dancing, building a soundsystem with some friends.


your ultimate heartbreak song
Caroll Thompson - One Dance

This song was an early lover's rock tune – the kind of music they used to play at blues parties and Jamaicans have a way of dancing to this music called «whining» where you dance together crotch to crotch and you’ve got to be able to girate on time very slowly.
