The Len Price 3-Kentish Longtails

Artist:  The Len Price 3

Album:   Kentish Longtails

Release Date: 22 Sept 2017

Label:  JLM Recordings

"Rock and Roll doesn't need saving;  the cure's right here."  That's why Dvid Fricke, the legendary Rollig Stone journalist said of The Len Price 3, an English pop band who deliver instantly memorable tunes with a vintage pop feel. Wit an ever growing and ferociously loyal world-wide

following, twelve years and five albums under their belts, they remain the best kept secret in show business.Their new release, ‘Kentish Longtails’ namechecks a piece of local folklore concerning a curse allegedly placed upon the people of Strood by Thomas à Becket which condemned the children of this town on the banks of the Medway to be born with tails. Thankfully tail-less, but with tall tales and colourful harmonies intact, The Len Price 3 have created an album full of timelessmelodic gems with plenty of punk rock oomph and a sprinkling of sonic weirdness. Expect shiny pop hooks and rich lyrical content laden with wry social observations and acid tongued retorts.

We've drafted in Greg Wilson, the former electro-funk pioneer, nowadays a leading figure in the global disco/re-edits movement and respected commentator on dance music and popular culture, to bring us four random nuggets of history; highlighting a classic DJ, label, venue and record each month.

Bostonian, John Luongo is someone who seemed to have slipped through the cracks of dance history. The legacy of his contemporaries, Tom Moulton, ‘inventor’ of the 12” single, and Walter Gibbons, who, in 1976, mixed the first commercially available 12”, is set in stone. There isn’t any similarly definitive first on which to hang John Luongo’s legacy, his contribution thus far undervalued as a consequence.

Starting out in the late-’60s, Luongo’s twin-pronged approach took in both college radio and clubs. At the height of the disco era he reputedly became the first DJ to broadcast live club sets for a major radio station - Boston’s WBOS. His main club residency was at Rhinoceros, whilst he also played at Zelda’s, Whimsey’s and Boston Boston, plus classic NYC venues Studio 54 and Paradise

Garage. Along with Gibbons and Bronx DJ Kool Herc, he was a pioneer of turntablism, extending the breaks by switching between 2 copies of the same record. 

His big break as a remixer came in 1978 courtesy of Melba Moore’s Bee Gee’s composed ‘You Stepped Into My Life’ - a top 5 US Disco hit. He then breathed new life into The Jackson’s career via classic mixes of ‘Blame It On The Boogie’ and ‘Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)’. 

Generally working alongside engineer Michael Barbiero, the duo would be responsible for some of the most invigorating remixes of the disco era, from artists like Patti Labelle, Johnny Mathis, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jnr, Sly Stone, Gonzalez and The Real Thing.
