D WRITES ON…WORK (HERBERT / GLENN UNDERGROUND)

In which D is offered a job but is hardly grateful.

Feb 94: Well, slap my thigh but I’ve just received a phone-call from [well-known department store], who have asked me to report for service on the 21st of this month. Apparently, they finally received verification from Flanagans that, indeed, I did serve many a steak and kidney pudding to bemused looking tourists in exchange for paltry tips and they are now prepared to let me loose amongst the under-fives in the prams department.

I suppose this is going to sound terrible, especially when one considers all the poor folk desperately looking for employment as I type – but fuck ‘em anyhow – but I’m not overly thrilled at the prospect of starting work and having to go through all that getting-up-at-seven-thirty-in-the-morning bollocks. I think I’ll try it for a while, feign an illness and retire early on health grounds or to spend more time with my family.

Tracks today from Herbert (previously here) and Glenn Underground. I know nothing about Glenn so discogs will have to suffice: Glenn Underground is the founding member of the Strictly Jaz Unit. He was raised on disco classics and freeform jazz in Chicago’s Southside, the place where house music was born. Taking inspiration from Chicago’s original pioneers, Larry Heard, Ron Hardy, Lil’ Louis, and the like, Glenn has produced some of the most well respected deep house music of the past five years. His releases for Cajual, Prescription Guidance and Peacefrog have set the standard for sophisticated dance music. He is one of the few DJ’s who can walk the line between deep jazz house, disco influenced house, and the kind of classics featured at the legendary parties of late 70’s Chicago.
