A-TEAM "Trouble" SÉANCE CENTRE OBSCURE BOOGIE FUNK REISSUE 12"
In 1982, a group of friends deep into post-punk, jazz and dub got together in Mad Professor's studio and lay down their youthful interpretation of a NYC disco cut. Their unique take included trombone, vibraphone, piano, and an ital dose of tape delay. They called the song "Trouble" and released two versions (vocal and dub) on their friend Tony McDermott's !Drum! label with artwork inspired by Russian Constructivism. The group, comprised of Justin Langlands, Chrysta Jones, John Schofield, Tom Dixon, and Dave Killen, decided to call themselves A-Team, having no idea that Mr.T and Co. would make them almost totally ungoogle-able 30 years later. The result of their adolescent studio idealism sounds akin to otherdisco misfits like Arthur Russell, Maximum Joy & Talking Drums (The Scots, not our own cosmic weirdos) and wouldn't sound out of place on legendary NYC label 99 Records. This Seance Centre reissue comes remastered with an extended Club Dub for maximum dance-floor action.
