about

"A year-round collection of summery breezes"

"Sweet post, with a heartfelt reggae/funk influence, analog dub effects and lovely femme-vox. A unique slice of late-70s/early-80s goodness, starring Brenda Ray, whose previous release on EM Records, Walatta, has been embraced by a large number of listeners. Recorded in North West England, D’Ya Hear Me! is warm-hearted, open, fresh and slyly experimental"

"D’Ya Hear Me! is a wide-ranging release, with lovely vocal tracks, warm dubs and pleasingly odd instrumentals, all knitted together with special trans-Atlantic rhythmic sense"

With an independent spirit and a true D.I.Y. soul, these thirteen tracks, originally released in various formats by Ray a.k.a. Brenda Kenny a.k.a. Natalie Sand a.k.a. Polly Rith’m and her musical friends under the moniker(s) Naffi/Naffi Sandwich, were recorded in a simple home-made studio, making full use of the creative options opened up through the full use of simple means – although the warm, full audio belies any notions of primitivism. Far from media-crazed London, Naffi created a musical world free from lust for the spotlight, focusing solely on the music, and the results are fittingly pure.

D'Ya Hear Me! 7" vinyl original release - rum records rum 5 - 1981

These selection of tracks were originally written, played, recorded, produced - Brenda Kenny/Freddie Viaduct. at naffi studio, U.K..
Recorded etc on Tascam Teac Portastudio 199 4 track cassette machine.
On one visit to a trade event, unfortunately, at the time this machine was only a prototype - had to wait another 6 months before one landed at naffi studio!
.....became 'hooked to the dub' via Roger Eagle. In between sets at Erics Club (Liverpool), he played the rarest cuts on the planet - dub plates to rockabilly out takes.
