[YOUTUBE] Early Jamiroquai 'Nomi Rehearsal Demos' 1993

Postby JamiroFan2000 on Thu Sep 02, 2010 12:40 am

On top of JK's great interview this morning on the 'Chris Moyles Show' on BBC Radio 1, 3 'Pre-Emergency On Planet Earth Rehearsal Demos' were posted on YouTube by former Jamiroquai guitarist/drummer and co-songwriter Nick Van Gelder. These 'Nomi Demos' are from early January 1993, before Jamiroquai had signed a 'monolithic' 10 album deal with Sony/BMG, and they were still on a indie label contract with 'Acid Jazz Records'. These rehearsal demos, are absolutely stunning and really show the 'fresh funk origins' of a young band finding the individualized flow of cohesion. Jamiroquai may have been written off my cynical minded music fans, but these demos really revitalize interest into the early days of a groundbreaking band, at the beginning of a creative arch that would end up being the most forward-thinking and enviromentally conscious album of their isolated british acid jazz music movement of the early 1990s. Here are demo links on YouTube and PREPARE TO BE ASTONISHED:

LOVELY
AMAZING
INCREDIBLE
UNBELIEVABLE

I have no words to describe those songs! they're so amazing!
Thanks god Nick Van Gelder released those tracks! He did as a response for Jay's comment: "We have not lost the funk" and thats one of the things he has lost the most! :S
I have spent hours repeating those three tracks! I LOVE THEM!!!
That's definitely Jamiroquai! ;)

It really is great hearing the early music.
I think it hilarious for everybody to criticize Jay for his current music away from funk.
He is changed. He is evolved.
It is inevitable. :?

Why don't the 3 (or more) of the original members that are gone, just get together to form a new band with a new singer? :?: I'd probably buy their music too.

or it would be great if they got together again, just for a gig or something and played some old/rare tunes. like jay, stuart zender, toby, n.van gelder, wallis, you know, all those guys who "built" jamiroquai. i'm sure it would be a success :roll:

Hello,

.....for those in the Jamily who wanted lyrics for these demos, here you go & Enjoy.....

JAMIROQUAI NOMI DEMO LYRICS:

Friends Lyrics:
Yeah 7x
Friends, will try to change you
Yeah 9x
Oh yes they do

Till until now?? (Tell Her Now??)
Just the person who was the agent of confusion
Right now, I don't know
Who the hell I'm supposed to be or what I'm doing
Proven, that your scar
That beneath the shining teeth lies ancient heartbreak
Heartache, so tell me why
I should change the way I do things just for your sake

I'd say yeah
Yeah 7x
Friends, will try to change you
Yeah 10x
Do (Oh tell them about now)

Backstabber
I don't know who you are
Backstabber
(Bring it up now)
Put you down, because of a mirror of self security
Because I put you down cause I do it, I do It, I do it
Cause I put you down, because of it's a mirror of self security
I put you down

Yeah 6x
Friends, will try to change you
Yeah 9x
Oh yes they do

Say I change
Deep inside I'm still the same old disposition
How ya doin'
It's hard to please
With being 16 different people ain't a new thing
(What face shall I wear today?)
People try
To hide behind your self esteem cause your a dreamer
Schemer, but anyhow
Now you know the road is carved you well believer
I'm sayin now

Yeah 6x
Friends, will try to change you
Yeah 10x
Oh yes they do, so tell them about it now
Backstabber
I don't know who you are
Backstabber
I don't know who you are yeah
Backstabber
I don't know who you are
(Bring it up now)

Put you down, because of a mirror of self security
Because I put you down cause I do it, I do It, I do it
Cause I put you down, because of it's a mirror of self security
Because I put you down cause I do it, I do it, I do it


Music Of The Mind Lyrics:
I know somewhere we can go so much better
The music in my mind, the music in my mind
I know somewhere we can go so much better
Wha oh oh oh
Wha oh oh oh
Oh yeah, I can take you there
I can take you there
I can take
Can take you right there
Don't you wanna go
*Scatting To End*
Wanna go
I can take you there
I can take you there
*Scatting*
I know somewhere we can go much better yeah
The music in my mind, the music in my mind
I know somewhere we can go much better


Sincerely,

Here's my question. Have Jay and Stuart been returned to being friends since Stu's departure?
I would guess no. But I really have no clue about this and the history.

Hello again Jamily,

We're currently hard at work doing some corrections to the lyrics of the Nomi Demos, read more at the following link on JamiroTalk to keep abreast of it:

Also, fellow JamiroTalker Andrew used some of his audio editing software and really cleaned up these Nomi demos and made them sound WAY BETTER, here is a download links to his edits and MASSIVE thanks to Andrew at JamiroTalk for his work on these:

Just wonder why these tracks (Friends and Funky Seven) never played at some of their older gigs (like Cannabliss or Brothers Like You). :?:

I actually got a bit pissed off as I was listening to Music of the Mind demo,because its so good. I actually slowed down working, and vibed-out. Thinking to myself, "Dammit! Why don't he sound like this now?" This song with lyrics would have received its ghetto Grammy and the ghetto pass.It would have been all over the urban contemporary radio stations. As of now their (his) pass has been revoked :(

Thanks Nick for sharing. :wink:

Tiffany :lol:

Music of the Mind -a slow funky groove. Really sounds like Stevie here. Great voice here with his style!
But sounds like music to hear at a festival definitely. Spacing out! But better than typical Rave music! :lol:

Hah -I just updated the Rave page on Wikipedia for my local. 1st Wiki post!
