Diverse dancefloor rock, soul & psychedelia from from Daniel Collas & Sean Marquand and their NYC collective Phenomenal Hand Clap Band – a mix synth and keyboard groovers, percussion rich cosmic grooves! The only previous material we've heard from the Phenomenal Hand Clap Band was a 45 on Truth & Soul that pushed the boundaries of underground funky soul, and they bust in wide open on their full length on the Friendly Fire label – but always with a tight core groove, whether it's a fuzzy kind of funk rock tune, a sinister little psych soul number, an ARP & Moog synth jam. Lots of off kilter instrumentation like harpsichord, mellotron and vibes and glockenspiel finds it's way into the grooves, and guest vocalists include Jon Spencer, Tiombe Lockhart, Carol C and Lady Tigra. Titles include "Journey To Serra Da Estrela", "All Of The Above", "Testimony", "Give It A Rest", "You'll Disappear", "15 To 20", "Dim The Lights", "The Martyr", "Tears", "Baby", "The Circle Is Broken" and more. © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.
When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.
All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
