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.


best Kraftwerk song
Kraftwerk - Morgenspaziergang

The song where they imitate birds.

I've got images of the Bee Gees walking around in chorlton in Manchester.
