The reason people called the pills "ludes" is that these white sedative tablets made them too tired to pronounce the entire brand name. "'Ludes" (along with various other pill and powder form drugs) were very Seventies. Ludes made you feel totally peaceful and all floaty and stuff. Apparently they also made you think porno was a serious art form. And that voting for the National Party and getting a brown and orange speckled wall to wall carpet and a rottweiler was a really tasty plan.
Then when you were feeling really floaty, you'd go and buy the kind of music found on Housemaster's Dance Grooves. It was perfect for that party when you were so high on tranqs that you could only dance in slow-mo while the floor kept moving away like a trampoline.
And if you're sober, it's fantastic too. What we have here is a whole bunch of classic groovy 70s schmaltz pop pieces, remastered by DJ Segale Aldrin Mogotsi. Wonderful, especially the opening track "Laid Back", and the Diana Ross number, "Love Hangover".
Highly recommended, just because it's such fun. - Jean Barker
In order to understand this music, it's important to understand Qualudes, known for short as "ludes", which is basically the same thing as Mandrax (but not smoked.)
