Bill Dolan and Primitive Sound System - Thursday June 3rd - 9PM to Closing

Hello Y'all,
Better late than never! That is what we always say here at BP. Look, there was a long ass weekend and time flows like oil from a well lubricated uncapped pipe. So here we are hoping to just move passed this mess and spin some finely etched petroleum products for your enjoyment. We have utilized these resources to bring you the finest in beer soaked entertainment. Sure, some animals may die, birds, fish but you, you get joy from every turn of the needle as it injects itself into the deep well of the record and pumps raw wax directly to your heart. Thick buttery grooves clogging your every orifice with tones, beats and melody. So good for you.

Thank you for your years of loyalty!

BP - Spilling Approximately 20 Records at 33 to 45 RPMs per hour!
(Bill & Pat)

I recently decided to pull all my Food and Drink based 45s from their various genres and locations. Over the past year I have been making mixes for a friend who specializes in wine ( Of course this "forced" me to buy a whole bunch of wine, beer and spirits based records. As if I needed a reason to buy more records. Another friend recently opened a BBQ place in Jersey City ( That got me foraging deep into the boxes for food songs. I did give myself rules for what qualifies as a food song since so many are taken out of context. I had to decide that Popcorn songs don't count, though I will be making an all Popcorn mix. Even "Cracker Jack" by Mickey and His Mice doesn't count because as you know, "It aint nothing but THE POPCORN with some sweet jive on it." "Aw shucks." I will blindly include all Chicken songs which means I get to include "The Hen" by Louis Chachere. This is a song, like TAD's "Jack Pepsi," that should be played once a day to keep you sane. But, it is still hard to legitimize the "Funky Chicken" songs and similarly titled masterpieces since they are getting down on the floor rather than satisfying your craving and inducing a food coma. Similarly, and even though it is a personal favorite, I had to pass up the inclusion of "Moaning For Molasses," since I am just guessing Mr. Williams ain't paying tribute to the sweet syrup made from cooking cane juice. I have not included any Modern records in this first batch. My cut of is the 70's for now and does not include much of the Rock records except instrumentals from the 50's and 60's. Many of the New Funk and Soul bands have deliciously titled tunes and I will get to them soon enough. I definitely need to go through the boxes again but the count is somewhere around 250 spanning the 40's to the 70's and covering many genres. During one of my almost daily chats with the amazing DJ Prestige he suggested I put together a guest mix for his Flea Market Funk site ( so look for that soon. I think that's enough gravy and sauce to cover everyone. So if you sling hash or booze expect a link from me soon. Then expect seconds, and thirds...
