One of the Boogaloo Bag’s favorite DJs is Nogood Nick. His musical tastes lean heavily on modernistic stylings. He hosts a semi-regular happy hour DJ night called Rip! Rig! Panic! at Otto’s Shrunken Head, where he can be heard spinning danceable Mod Jazz, R&B, Northern Soul and Rocksteady records. His reputation is such that a new club called Splitty asked him to present an all-night Rip! Rig! Panic! on Saturday August 1. It took place with guest DJs One Take Jake and Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus.

Up until that night, the Boogaloo Bag had not witnessed One Take Jake in action. He walked into the club with a crate full of LPs—a rare sight in the reet music scene, where the 7” 45 RPM record is king. Mostly he stuck to playing funk stuff, but it was cool and his funk beat kept the place hoppin’.

Mr. Nick played his regular trash—that is to say, if you don’t dig his act you don’t dig nuthin’! Nogood Nick can really swing. Let’s hope that Mr. Nick will be able to make the Rip! Rig! Panic! all-nighter happen every month at Splitty, which is neat little club located along the western edge of Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

For his part, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus played a bunch of funky jazz records, organ grooves a few soul bits—some old favorites, some new acquisitions and several that have been hiding in his collections waiting for just such a night to be aired out. Here’s a list of all the records played by The Boogaloo Omnibus:

None of these records are for sale.
