  Our Wedding Night  
  How can you describe someone who claims to be “the coolest of the uncool in popular music”, and bears a resemblance to none other than Alan Partridge himself? Jonathan Richman is the chap who released the catchy instrumental ‘Egyptian Reggae’ onto an unsuspecting public in 1977. It was even featured on the prestigious BBC show Top of the Pops, with the leggy Pans People doing the usual saucy-but-cheesy dance routine, this time inspired by middle-eastern belly-dancing amidst jerky bent arm motions, which inspired a dance craze nationwide! “Egyptian Reggae” was the thing, the latest craze, where the action was at! Getting to #5 in the UK, and a #1 hit in Europe, dancers around the globe grooved like they’d never grooved to before. Now it’s 20 years on, and it seems nothing’s changed. DJs - try it out – watch the smiles appear on the faces, and watch the dancers do their thing – Egyptian style! Everyone likes surprises, and nobody likes a musical surprise more than we at Jazzman. Just when you think you’ve heard it all, along comes Cecil Leuter’s ‘Pop Electronique’ (JM.010) or Nino Nardini’s ‘Poltergeist’ (JM.024) - they blow you to bits! The wild, the crazy, the downright lunatic – probably the kind of music the great, late Syd Barrett dreamt of making while sipping his acid-laced tea. Well here we are again, this time sneaking off with some music they play at weddings in Egypt. This one’s called ‘Wedding Night’, and if the first few seconds of this nutty piece of nuttiness is anything to go by, there will be some very strange things to look forward to in the bridal suite! I need a fast boat to Cairo with my bride-to-be – and I want it now! Recently used to great effect by DJ Sayem for Guts' "And The Living Is Easy - Remix"
