SOME OF MY 12" MIXES TO SHARE
GIMME SOME (12") - BRENDON
Brendon (born Brendon Dunning) was a UK glam rocker. He had a few releases on EMI Magnet in the mid 1970s. One of his singles, "Gimme Some", hit the UK singles charts in 1977, peaking at #14 in March of that year. "Gimme Some" also hit the Oz charts but it was too short in my opinion to make a big impact in the burgeoning club scene for which it was designed....So here is my own extended Tom Mix version that was mastered from a European CD mix of the original single. It has overdubs and a new rhythm track taken from a popular hit from the 1980s called "The Best Part Of Breakin' Up" by disco artist Roni Griffiths. Currently Brendon and Dave Levy (former band member) have released new material under the name of Simple Country Folk. The album is titled "Long Time Coming"- DJ Tom Mix in Oz.
Review by The Saucer People Mag:
Wow! Gimmie Some is one of the perfect Glam stompers but I have always thought like many seventies songs that pre-date the rise of the 12 inch, it was criminally short...the extended version is stunning and it was not till I re-read your post that I realised it was a "Tom" re-edit! I thought you had unearthed some rare 12 inch glam promo of the track in the manner of The Glitter Bamd's 'Makes You Blind' rare extended mix. It is a shame they did not have you around in the studio back in '78, this would have been a dance floor 'smash' as they said back then! Huge thanks for all your hard work tweaking this, and more importantly, thanks for sharing!
