Todd-O-Phonic Todd and Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus swing at the RAMA LAMA FA FA FA!!!

The RAMA LAMA FA FA FA took place at the Commodore on Friday January 24. What is a RAMA LAMA FA FA FA, you ask? RAMA LAMA FA FA FA is Todd-O-Phonic Todd and Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus playing wild, greasy rock ‘n’ roll records as folks drink and jump and drink and jump and drink and jump all night long.

In other words, it is like a WANG DANG DOODLE, but with Todd-O-Phonic Todd instead of Dave the Spazz!!

Todd-O-Phonic Todd did not disappoint! In fact, he may have played some of the bossest recordings ever committed to wax—and I do mean “committed!!” He showed up a bit late but when he got down to business, what he played was all the way great! Todd-O-Phonic Todd knows a bit about boss records. He is a long time collector of truly insane rock’n’roll records, plus, he used to own and book the legendary Hoboken nightclub Maxwell’s and he’s a fill-in DJ at WFMU.

Todd-O-Phonic Todd is also one of The Boog‘s oldest friends on the East Coast, having met him during a trip to New York City in 1977–when The Boog also met Miriam Linna (Norton Records), The Hound, Lydia Lunch and saw The Cramps and The Feelies. At the RAMA LAMA FA FA FA, Todd-O-Phonic Todd spun some extraordinary platters such as these (click on the thumbnails to see them big-O-nized:

One Mint Julep and Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus swing at the DYNAGROOVE!

The DYNAGROOVE began its third big year with a solid send off on January 10th at Teddy’s Bar & Grill (the place to go if you want to eat!). Special guest DJ was the wonderful One Mint Julep, who played a grand assortment of smooth soul, peerless pop and even a couple of cool country records. Her taste in music is exquisite and whenever she DJs it is on full display. Host DJ Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus was up to his usual nonsense, playing a vast array of jams that included mod jazz, marvelous mambo, provocative pop, silky soul, vibraphonic groove early in the evening and building up to gyrating Go-Go beats.

The first three hours (including most of One Mint Julep‘s set) of The DYNAGROOVE were broadcast over the Web-O-Net via the superb new Teddy’s Radio Hour Broadcasting System.

Subway Soul Club New Year’s Eve Spectacular!

For about nine years, Subway Soul Club was the Cadillac of soul clubs in New York City. Although a very successful event was held last March, it has been mostly on hiatus for the last couple of years. On the very last evening of 2013, Subway Soul Club returned with a fabulous New Year’s Eve Spectacular held at Coco 66 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Lady Dawn, Subway Soul Club’s British den mother and guiding light, insisted on holding the affair when she saw the beautiful club back in October. After heated negotiations with the club, she and resident DJ Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus agreed to terms with Coco 66’s respected talent agent Jon Weiss (of Cavestomp fame) and preparations were made to make this an evening to remember!  All of the available tickets were sold out two days before the big night. Long-time SSC supporter David Horowitz (The Above) delivered a fantastic video that was projected on a screen behind the DJs.

While Lady Dawn was busy drawing the beautiful poster, Phast Phreddie was on the horn, rounding up DJs. Greg Tormo crossed two rivers to be on hand with a box full of incredible records. Ol’ Stark, whose Mod Action parties are the toast of Paris, gave the night an international, jet-set flair. As a long-time Subway Soul Club attendee and one of its biggest fans, Girlsoul knew exactly which records to play for the dance floor faithful. At midnight, Lady Dawn wished everyone well before Phast Phreddie whipped the crowd into a frenzy with some soul classics and terrific Go-Go beats.

Johnny Otis Boogaloo Bash

Agent 00 Soul and Zachariah Love discuss the finer points of playing a Motown reissue 45 at the Johnny Otis Boogaloo Bash!

Agent 00 Soul and Zachariah Love discuss the finer points of playing a Motown reissue 45 at the Johnny Otis Boogaloo Bash!

Johnny Otis was a true pioneer of Rhythm & Blues.  Not only was he a drummer and singer, but he led a great orchestra, ran a cool record label, was a talent scout for other record labels, wrote some great songs, was a radio DJ and a host for a TV show. He played the vibraphone and learned to play piano after he mangled a couple fingers in a power-saw accident! Did we leave out something? Oh, yeah, three of the greatest R&B acts of all time, Little Willie John, Hank Ballard & the Midnighters and Jackie Wilson, were among his discoveries! His birthday is December 28 and in a perfect world it would be a national holiday. So Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus decided to take it upon himself to throw a party for the late great Mr. Otis while he (The Boog) was visiting Los Angeles, the city where Johnny Otis was based most of his life. This took place at the Liquid Kitty in West Los Angeles—right next door to what once was Club 88 (where The Boog’s band Phast Phreddie & Thee Precisions played its first two shows, opening for the legendary Blasters).

December 28, 2013 also happened to be the 60th birthday of Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus! He was able to round up some of his favorite local DJs—(Agent 00 Soul, Mr. Soul Satisfaction, ZachariahLove, Miss Europa, Danny Holloway*)—and a ton of his favorite people—people he has known and loved all his life—showed up for the festivities.

People seemed to come out of the proverbial woodwork for this affair: During the mid-70s, Phast Phreddie founded and edited a punk rock fanzine called Back Door Man and some of its writers and readers were in the house. Several members of his eighties bands Thee Precisions, The Love Supremes and Phast ‘n’ Bulbous showed up to swing. Also in attendance were many old friends, including heroes, schoolmates, associates, softball teammates, drinking buddies, lovers and colleagues. Every one of them wore a beautiful smile as he or she wished The Boog well as he climbed kicking and screaming into old age!!

In between hugs and handshakes, The Boog was able to commandeer the turntables for two 30-minute sets, and here’s what he played:

  • Johnny Otis–The Hash (King)
  • The Johnny Otis Show; vocal by Johnny Otis and Marci Lee–Castin’ My Spell (Capitol)
  • Johnny Otis and Orchestra–Hey! Hey! Hey! (Dig)
