Few groups can match the continuity in career Laid Back can boast about, now more than 30 years after their debut. Always at the service of the groove as exemplified by one of the all-time most sampled tracks, ‘White Horse’.
Fast-forwarding to the present, Laid Back now run their own record company, Brother Music which will be released worldwide exclusively through independent music distributors word and sound. The first release is a controversial track recorded at the same session that yielded ‘White Horse’, but censored by their record company at the time. ‘Cocaine Cool’ has been resurrected A.D. 2010 and features a graphic animation video clip eminently produced by Laid Back themselves.
“Way back in 1981, on the same night the ‘White Horse’ groove was born and jammed onto an 8-track tape recorder, we also did some other recordings. They were never completed and have stayed on the shelf ever since. Recently, in the process of transferring old analog master tapes to digital, we came across those vetust 8-track tapes, and when listening again, we found the unused material quite up-to-date. One of the unfinished grooves we consider musically being a brother to ‘White Horse’ has now been completed. The lyrics for this track, written by Arthur Stander, go back to the same period of time when during a trip to Los Angeles trying to shop some songs, the coolness of the A/R guys there gave us the inspiration!” Good vibes from Laid Back (Copenhagen, September 2010)
‘Cocaine Cool’ is the completion of an older recording that still sounds as fresh and relevant today, as it did 29 years ago. It also signals the dawn of a new era and more to come from Laid Back.
