Might as well JUMP!




The song is by Esau Mwamwaya, called "Chalo", and it's thanks to gorilla vs bear for showing the way. 

Goddamn, what a song! 

Any of our multi-lingual 'Spillers have any idea of what he's saying?

Great song & thanks for the link to Gorilla vs. Bear, some excellent stuff there as well: Holy Fuck, Beach Houuse, to name just two...

I like the song a lot, Blimpy, but (probably because of my age) I'm finding it hard to get past Jump. It was ubiquitous when I was a youngster. I remember when we were living in England my brother's best friend from home wrote a letter in which he listed his favorite songs as Jump and that Ghostbuster's song. A golden age of music, the 80s!!

Jump was everything I thought I didn't like about the 80s. Cheesy synth, poodle haired rawk. I still loved it. This is great too.

To revive "Jump" I suggest playing it loud, and with small children around - getting them to jump when appropriate, and using them as guitars/keyboards etc

It's the best, it tell thee!

hi Radioclit -

we're loving the demo then!

it's very easy to rip from myspace or any other streaming site, especially if you have a mac - only a couple of key-presses and that's it!
