Les Shleu-Shleu a New York
Mini Records 1973

We hadden er al een stuk of vijf en er wachten er nog een zwikkie.
Les Shleu-Shleu is een Haïtiaanse groep heerlijke instrumentalisten
die keer op keer weet te verrassen. Van begin tot eind lekkere
deuntjes die je zeker niet wilt missen, luister maar..

I guess we had us about five of their albums so far and we’ve got
another bunch waiting to find their way to you. Les Shleu-Shleu is a
group of wonderful instrumentalists who succeed in surprising us
again and again. From beginning to end sweet tunes you
would not want to miss, listen quickly..

    Heh, shit man, why are you uploading stuff that I already downloaded from other web-sites? Boring, boring!! Ho, ho!! You know. I have been thinking that I might bequeath my record collection to you, but now I have to consider whether it will be seed cast on stony ground or whether squirrels eat cherries (but only if pigeons dohn ge’ there first).

    so don’t bother to come here if you’re really so bored and selfish with your petty life… or you could get up off yr enigmatic backside, stop sniping and criticizing, set up a website with the stuff we don’t have and let us share it. Or are you just going to be selfish as usual? Troll.

      Go to your English dictionary, look up the word ‘irony’. This message was actually not addressed to you but to Moos, who should appreciate the history of the comment.
      Do you think that I would consider offering my record (vinyl) collection to him (which I have to add is not extensive but contains some rare and extraordinary pressings, (and by the way Moos this is a serious proposition though I am not sure about how the logistics would work, just let me know if you are ever in Manchester, (or back in Lincolnshire come to that!!), and I will hand them over, for the avoidance of doubt, – buckshee).
      I probably could set up a rival website if I had the inclination to commit the time, effort and euro’s which Moos must input to produce this site, but my talent and commitment is deployed in other directions and I LOVE my WORK too.
      And, in any event, why challenge a winning team? Co-operation trumps competition, when push comes to shove.
      I think I once commented that should be declared a World Heritage Site, I don’t think that I have to justify myself any further. What I think is really boring is the number of comments on the site saying: ‘Oh Moos you are really wonderful’ or words to that effect. May be Moos likes to have his ego massaged in such a way, but personally I think not (however I am often delusional!!) and, even if he does, I am not going to participate in that kind of fawning; there again, I am a Jeremy Corbyn and Arvind Kejriwal supporter, so what would I know?.
      As a matter of fact, if you had been following the posts on the site, you would understand that the point of my irony was the fact that in response to an earlier post Enrico had commented that the site was boring (or what ever the Spanish for ‘boring’ is) and the above comment was simply a parody of that, however the satire seems to loose the point when it is spelled out just in case some idiot misinterprets it, (yeh, I can do abuse as well as anyone when I am pushed to it)
      Why do you think I wrote ‘Boring, boring!!, Ho, ho!!, (note the clever use of double exclamation marks to indicate irony and the verbal emoji ‘Ho, ho’ – you know ‘smiley face’)?.
      And by the way what is all this“Hands that help are better than lips that pray” bollocks about? I don’t have to plagiarise Robert G. Ingersoll to attempt a point, or plagiarise anyone else for that matter. I only do original or at least give credit where credit is due.
      However, old chap, I have no grudge against you, in the slightest. I think, perhaps, you are a bit deluded and up yourself (notice the clever use of zeugma), but you are still a brother (or I should say ‘sibling’, if I am being properly politically correct!) on God’s good earth (whether God remembers he exists or not (sorry that should read ‘God remembers it exists or not’)).
      Peace and love!!
      And even a man-hug, if that is not going too far!
      And if you can’t follow this, then believe me it does make sense (trust me I am a philospher!).

      (‘nough said)

      And, by the way, Tim Harrison, how many originals have you offered to donate to Moos’ collection to assist him in his endeavour?

      (I feel a campaign coming on!)

          If you ever do, Moos, you would be very welcome. I am an advocate of global zenia, the Homeric code of hospitality, you know ‘my house is your house, for as long as is appropriate to your needs (terms and conditions apply*)’. However I am usually only around April to September inclusive and, indeed, along with all my avatars, leaving to inspect our colonies in a week’s time (I better give that a ‘!!’ just in case Dhr Harrison is reading).
          Any way, what is all this ‘halleluja’ all about? I had got the impression you were a fellow card-carrying, practising atheist.

          * T&C, the usual stuff, you know – no smokin’, no jokin’, no pokin’; no coveting my neighbour’s ass, or his wife’s ass, or her husband’s ass, come to that, after all it was the cause of 10 years of Trojan war, wasn’t it, and there’s enough war in the world already, don’t y’think?

            Boom Shanka A.E.,
            I sure am an atheist as you already suggest,
            the halleluja stands for a sigh of relief see..
            something to do with my religious family roots I guess,
            I’m very happy for you, being able to skip a part of the
            year and travell to your ancesters colonies, my time is
            damned limited yet, hope the future will bring some change
            who knows we’ll meet some fine day, cheers..

    Hello Moos, thanks for this album. :)
    May I ask for a small globalgroove request ? By any chance do you have a nice & relaxing gamelan music from Bali or Java ?

    Hey, Moos. You actually got me interested in Haitian music, here. First time I’ve bothered. I’m going to go back and check out your other Haitian material. I’m heavily in African content, but not anything from my hemisphere–so this is a first. Good for you!
