Electric Fetus

Vinyl LP pressing. UK based electronic group Electribe 101 and their one album, Electribal Memories hold a legendary place in the annals of house and dance music. The band met after vocalist and writer Billie Ray Martin had placed an ad in Melody Maker in 1988: "Soul rebel seeks musicians - genius only". Billie headed to meet the four responding musicians (Brian Nordhoff, Joe Stevens, Les Fleming, and Roberto Cimarosti) at their studio in Birmingham. "I took three songs with me, one of which was the lyrics and melodies to (Electribe 101's first single) 'Talking with Myself', as well as a copy of Julian Jonah's 'Jealousy and Lies'," says Billie. "I told the guys: "I've heard the future, and this is what I want to do." I had heard Julian's track at the WAG Club and I still remember the moment I stopped my shimmying and just stood there, staring, then turning on my heels and going straight to the DJ to ask what this record was. The guys had already experimented with some more dance orientated tracks and were instantly sold on the idea."
