Nite Jewel – Weak For Me 45 (1984 Records)
Stones Throw Records lost out on the bidding war with 1984 Records for this release, but if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. The record has nothing to do with the Orwell novel of the same name and any themes of nationalism, sexual repression, or censorship in the 2 songs are pure coincidence.
Dam-Funk first discovered Nite Jewel's now out-of-print full length album Good Evening (that these songs were pulled from) at Groove Merchant in San Francisco and bought copies for Peanut Butter Wolf and Folerio. The three of them regularly fight over who gets to play what at their gigs and now Nite Jewel is the latest to get jumped into the Stones Throw crew. Much more to follow unless someone pisses someone off or dies.
