Good morning, for those who think, where the heck did
Moos go, I just got back from a three week trip to Thailand.
After a period of hard work it was time to take a break, also
adding a pause in winter. We travelled around and really
enjoyed it. Found an abandoned temple in the North,
Chiang Rai region, such a nice country with sweet people,
great food and warm weather .. greetings
to Noa at Koh Phangan ..

What’s cooking here today ? Let’s listen to another piece
of juju music with Admiral Dele Abiodun from 1988. The
Adawa Super King is rocking like never before. Great
uptempo sound from his Busy Body ..

Goeiemorgen, als je dacht, waar is Moos gebleven, ik was
voor drie weken naar Thailand. Na een tijd van veel werk
was het tijd voor een goede onderbreking, ook om een
pauze in the lassen in de Nederlandse winter. We hebben
er met veel plezier een beetje rond rereisd. In het Noorden,
omgeving van Chiang Rai vonden we deze verlaten tempel.
Heerlijk land met lieve mensen, lekker eten en warm weer ..

Wat hebben we hier vandaag ? Laten we nog eens naar een
stukje fijne juju luisteren met Admiral Dele Abiodun uit 1988.
De Adawa Super King gaat lekker los op deze plaat. Lekker
vlotte sound van de admiraal en zijn Busy Body ..

Are you into politics ? I am trying not to be but at the
moment there’s quite some turbulence in the Dutch
political situation. Leaders of party’s come and go and
major changes take place. There will be elections in june
and the papers are full of speculations and predictions.
Personally I am very happy with a fresh new wind blowing
in The Hague in the future, the old one brought us nothing
but shame. I welcome the former mayor of Amsterdam,
Job Cohen, to the political stage, the best of luck to him.

How was the political situation in Nigeria in the 70’s ?
I found us Adawa King, Admiral Dele Abiodun, on a 1977
Nigerian juju album. He can tell us some stories,
listen well. His style’s called adawa, a mixture of juju
and Afro-beat with highlife elements. Both sides of the LP
start quite noisy but during the number it gets a lot better.
