Over Two Million Served

 

Over night last night my visitor count passed the 2,000,000 mark. I realize that that's no big deal in light of the length of time I've been doing this, but for a "backwater blog" like I've got going here, it's kinda major to me. In fact, I'm mightily chuffed.

So I've decided to reward all of you loyal followers out there in the aether with gifts from me to you because of this. From now until the beginning of December I am taking request from anyone who reads this. 

Submit your wish-list for your ideal post you'd like to see here. You can request up to three albums, bands, whatever. Maybe write a brief-to-detailed reason for you're request. I'll take all request into consideration & post up the results at the end of November. Then throughout December I will gift posts to everyone that I've chosen who requested music.

I have only my own limited resources from which to honor requests, so I won't be able to make everyone happy. But I'll try my hardest to give Holidaze gifts to all you. If you just try to stump me with impossible to find items, then you probably will end up on Santa's naughty list, but if you have something that you've been searching for or something you've wanted me to post, then you'll make Santa's nice list.

You can put your requests in the comments of any posts. I'll see them, check them out, & see what I can do.

Thank you all for stopping by & hopefully finding some musick you've enjoyed. Come back soon.

Circus Mono Kontrol

 

Circus Lupus was a post-hardcore band based in the area of Washington, D.C. The band originally formed in Madison, Wisconsin, where one-time Ignition & Soul Side bassist Chris Thomson met guitarist Chris Hamley & drummer Arika Casebolt while attending school. Reg Shrader initially played bass with the band. He was replaced by Seth Lorinczi, as the band was making its transition from Madison to Washington. 



The name Circus Lupus comes from an SCTV sketch about "Circus Lupus, the Circus of Wolves", a mock TV commercial for an entirely wolf-filled traveling circus, with graphics of wolves on trapeze swings & other circus apparatus.

Primates are Animals, Too

 

I first saw Primus at a house party in West Oakland in the mid 80s, before they had released their first album & risen to fame. We would drive up to West Oakland every week-end & head to one of the many band houses there. Many of the punk crowd associated with Gilman St. had move to the West Oakland area because of the much cheaper rent, the warehouse spaces available, & the more ethnically diverse, more friendly atmosphere. Jack Acid, The Gr-ups, Kamala etc all could be found playing house parties on any given week-end. It was cheap, it was personal, it was fun. 



I remember Primus well, as their style was right in my wheel-house. They had humor & funk injected into their DIY blend. They were definitely weird.

Shpongle...a strange hybrid of electronic manipulation & shamanic midgets with frozen digits squeezing the envelope, crawling through the doors of perception, finding a new pair o' dice, discovering extra numbers & colours, expanding an infinite bubble filled with a bizzare, strange world of dripping hallucinatory wallpaper, a garden of earthly delights. The Ineffable Mysteries unweave as weirdness abounds.

With a Bit of a Mind Flip...You're into the Time Slip...Let's Do the Time Warp Again

 

Time Machines was released in 1998 by Coil. They felt it was so unique from their usual style that they needed an alias. John Balance described the album as 4 tones to facilitate travel through time, an attempt to create temporal slips.

Balance stated:
     "One of the interesting things with Time Machines is that there's a handful of responses which we've had where what happened to the listeners was exactly what we intended to happen. There would be some kind of temporal disruption caused by just listening to the music, just interacting with the music. The drugs thing is actually a hook we hung it on - it originally came out of me and Drew talking that some of the types of music you listen to - sacred musics like Tibetan music or anything with a sacred intent which often is long ceremonial type music which could last for a day or three days or something. There are periods of time in that where you will come out of time. That's the intention of it to go into a trance and achieve an otherness. We thought can we do this sort of electronic punk-primitive? We did demos with a simple mono synth and we managed it. We sat in the room and listened to it loud and we lost track of time - it could be five minutes in or 20 minutes in but you suddenly get this feeling, the hairs on the back of your neck, and you'd realise that you'd had some sort of temporal slip. We fine-tuned, well, filters and oscillators and stuff, to try and maximise this effect. It was what we were after with simple tones - somehow you could slip through." 

 

This album succeeds so effectively in its goals of warping time that some of the reviews for it were published years before its release. The louder you listen to it, the more twisted you are, the better it works.

The CD comes in a cardboard gatefold sleeve. The first 3000 copies come with the following 6 stickers: four relating to each track...telepathine; hecate; psilocybin; & DMT plus two different Persistence is All stickers (artwork included in file).

Noise is Still the King

 

Most everyone remembers the 6' 7" flying-V guitar wielding freak with a mohawk wearing a some crazy trans/punk outfit...Richie Stotts. After leaving the Plasmatics in 1984, Richie pursued a solo career with his band King Flux. 

 



 

This is a compilation of Richie's tunes released in 2002. It contains "Man with the X-Eyes" & "1944" from Stotts' only official release (a 7" 45rpm on American Gothic) plus songs Richie had on cassettes he had recorded but never released that had been in a box in his apartment. The rest of the songs are from the King Flux days. A rarity.

Limited to 100 numbered copies with sleeves that were hand signed & painted by Richie hisself. Comes with 11"x17" cardstock lyric/photo insert (which I included).

Richie is joined on various tunes by fellow Plasmatics bassists Jean Beauvoir & Chris Romanelli, part-time Plasmatics & Twisted Sister drummer Tony Petri along with the Hilfiger Bros (Andy - bass & Billy - guitar [R.I.P.]), Albert Bouchard of B.Ö.C. & Marky Ramone on drums.

Sexwitch is a collaboration between Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes & the British rock band TOY. Khan & TOY had previously collaborated in 2013 to cover "The Bride", a pre-revolution Iranian song on the Bats for Lashes release of the same name. For the Sexwitch session, Khan & producer Dan Carey bought several "old weird psych records from different countries, strange folk mountain songs". They then asked TOY to record cover versions of the songs.

The finished project consists of six cover versions of 1970s psychedelic & folk songs from Iran, Morocco, Thailand, United States with "hypnotic, groove-based tracks that feature jagged post-punk guitars" & "shrieking crescendos".

Nasmak was an experimental early 80s band from Neunen, Netherlands, just outside of Eindhoven. Back at the start of the 80s, despite its provincial reputation, Eindhoven was a magnet for musical adventurers like no other place in the Netherlands. Forward thinking venues like the Apollohuis & the Effenaar, even smaller spots like the Poort van Kleef cafe regularly hosted nights of avant-garde music. Those making the instruments & devices that could play or record such music worked or studied at Philips Laboratories & Research Studios. If you add the activities of local avant-garde composers & polymaths like Paul Panhuysen, Remko Scha, or Michel Waisvisz, this was a perfect creative storm for young punks. It has many parallels to Cleveland's music scene from a decade prior.

Although Nasmak are usually lumped in with the 80s new wave crews, to my ears their experimental bent gives them the sound of a weird Dutch Pere Ubu. They play punk-derived style for stark, punchy bass/drums riffs with spare but nasty guitar (& gruff English vocals). Nasmak's defining characteristic is the way they create songs & then work at stripping them of melody, replacing much of it with sonic space. They are more post-punk than new wave.

According to Nasmak:
     "This CD offers a remixed version of our album 4our Clicks originally released on Dutch independent Plurex in February 1982. We were dissatisfied with the original mix in which half of the recorded multi-tracks were lost. This updated version reveals 4our Clicks as it was intended."

Recorded at Ballad Sound Studio, 1981, Vuren, the Netherlands & Arnold Mühren Studio, 1982, Volendam, the Netherlands. Re-mixed at The Tango Studio, 1988, Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

On 4our Clicks, Nasmak is: Henk Janssen & Joop van Brakel - guitar, vocals; Theo van Eenbergen - bass guitar; & Toon Bressers - drums.

Online Stores Indoor Oak Flagpole, 8-Feet

 

In 1993, cyberculture prankster/provocateur/publisher RU Sirius, founder of Mondo 2000 magazine along with composer Scrappi DuChamp, & performance artist Simone Third Arm, recorded an album for Trent Reznor's record label. They had met at Reznor's Los Angeles rental home, the house where the Manson Family killed Sharon Tate & others. Tim Leary had brought RU along to a housewarming party there. RU gave Reznor a demo tape of the band, called Mondo Vanilli. Reznor quickly signed the band to his then-nascent Nothing Records. Unfortunately, this great work of curious & quirky synth-industrial-pop, titled IOU Babe never made it to the record stores. Two decades later, Mondo Vanilli officially released IOU Babe for free online.

     "I'm sitting outside at a coffee shop one morning reading the local newspaper and there's a big fuss being made about Milli Vanilli. Their Grammy award had been rescinded because they had been caught lip-synching at their performances. To my Virtual Reality-bent brain, this demand for authenticity seemed completely ludicrous. First of all, this was obviously a prefabricated band making the most absolutely crappy, bland corporate music imaginable, so why did they get a Grammy in the first place… and who fucking cares if they lip-synched?

So I had the concept right then and there...Mondo Vanilli...a Virtual Reality band that would proudly lip-synch, or maybe not even pretend to play live music on stage, perhaps we would exist totally in Virtuality, or else we would do other, more original types of performance to our music. Wasn't a bunch of guys standing around with guitars or synths a really boring old cliché, even if you had a theatrical front man or woman?"

How this all began.

Once upon a time, there were some bizarre mid-80s songs riffing on the Beatles (Negativland) all about the 20th anniversary of the summer of love. They fell into the hands of Mondo 2000 magazine & in a deconstructive burst of creativity, became a flexi-disc inside the print magazine. Almost.

Then the same creative team decided to do "something disrespectful & different " to the industrial / acid house music of the mid-90s.  R.U. Sirius's original band The Merry Tweeksters got reincarnated into Mondo Vanilli while resurrecting some lyrics from Sirius's forgotten '80s band The Party Dogs. Sirius was joined in this mind-bending mix by a performance artist named Sim1 3Arm & a cool music composer Scrappi DuChamp.Then Trent Reznor gets involved.

Reznor's label ultimately signed Mondo Vanilli but then refused to release their album, I.O.U. Babe. Nearly 20 years later that lost album re-surfaced on the web, crashed all the servers, & then continued falling through time.

More from Sirius:

     "It was about three months after I'd quit MONDO 2000 (1993). We (Mondo Vanilli) headed down to L.A. with a demo tape & this very fun, very silly little Xeroxed package offering music industry behemoths the opportunity to get in on the cutting edge of cyber-absurdism.

We were going to stay with Timothy Leary in Beverly Hills. We had a whole lot of really amazing music industry connections to look up because of connections I had made at MONDO 2000. We were going to talk with Al Jourgensen. I also had heard from Billy Idol, who was just starting work on his infamous cyberpunk thing. So I had his phone number to plan a visit.

I called Casey Cannon, a MONDO friend from L.A. who at that time, she was making most of those short two-minute previews you see in movie theaters (her husband Van Ling was with Lightstorm & was James Cameron's go-to guy on the new technology). She told me that we had to go to Trent Reznor's party that night. Reznor had just rented 10050 Cielo Drive, the house that had been occupied by Roman Polanski & Sharon Tate where Sharon & all those other people were slaughtered by the Mansonoids. This was to be his housewarming party.

I called the number I got from Casey. I got an answering machine. I was able to leave the message that I was staying at Timothy Leary's house. Howdy, neighbor! A couple of hours later, Tim came out of his office. He said was talking to Peter Christopherson (Coil, Throbbing Gristle). We were invited to Trent Reznor's housewarming party (in a bit of synchronicity, this underground theater group was putting on a play based on a conversation Leary had with Charlie Manson when he was in prison & there were posters and flyers for it around the house).

Just before we were about to head to the party, Tim came out with a mint dish filled with pink ecstasy tabs, offering them around. Simone (Third Arm, another member of Mondo Vanilli) took one but Scrappi & I refused.

But something about the historical resonances nagged at me. What would the small town freak who I had been back in the 70s think about refusing a hit from Timothy Leary before heading up to the infamous Manson horror house to a rock star party. After a few minutes I snuck over & pocketed two hits. I went in the bathroom, broke one of them in half & took it.

I must have had an empty stomach because it came on quick & rather strong for a low dose. Reznor's new home was only a few blocks from Leary's, but it was on some windy roads. Getting there became interesting when a red Ferrari started tailgating us & then this guy began gesticulating wildly out the window. He cut in front of us and made us stop. Out popped Gibby Haynes, shouting, wanting to know if we knew "the way." He didn't even have to say the way to what. He let us get in front again & we made our way to the Reznor party.

On arrival, an enthusiastic Gibby jumped out of the car to meet Tim. He was bragging that the red Ferrari was on loan from Johnny Depp. With the ecstasy coming on, the entire L.A. hip culture started to seem like a serene glittery playground filled with happy children playing grownup. I settled into a comfort zone. The world was a friendly place.
 
The rest of the night was the usual party / ecstacy blur. The last I saw of Trent, he was waving around a baggie of mushrooms & heading into a room with one of the party girls. Maybe that's why he liked the Mondo Vanilli tape so much that he called the next day to offer us a recording contract."

Just Heard from Ib...Sibling from the Bleachers

 

Haven't heard from Ib for quite some time. He's taken time out to write two books: A Reign on Chimney Poets, a volume of short stories from on & off the Bleachers; & Safe as Milf, a volume of poetry. I heard from Ib today, letting me know that SaM had been released September 28th. You can find both on Amazon...search Ian Begg. They both are available there for Kindle, the latest in book form as well or you can go directly to siblingshot.com. I believe there are even a few signed copies left to purchase.

Although Ib is a dyed-in-the-wool Glaswegian, one of his favorite bands is American alternative band Thin White Rope. I am posting this for him, for all of you, & it fits perfectly into the theme I have going. Weird October. They are definitely on the weird side but hopefully as with the rest of the weirdness going on here, you find them to be fantastic as well.

Ib, this one's for you, brother.

Thin White Rope took their name from William Burroughs's description in The Naked Lunch of male ejaculation. From the opening song on their very first record, "Down in the Desert" from Exploring the Axis, a sun-baked, looping Tex-Mex groove of intense heat & shimmering mirage, TWR set the template for the sonic & emotional themes they carried on throughout their short history (I've added it here as a bonus track to set things off right).

Thin White Rope, powered by the twin guitar attack of singer/songwriter/guitarist Guy Kyser & lead guitarist Roger Kunkel, were a tragically under-appreciated band from California. Unfortunately for us, they never really rose to the level of appeal that surrounded other US breakout alternative bands. Their sound proved much too idiosyncratic for the masses, but now almost 30 years after the band's swansong, those eccentricities are exactly what keeps them so listenable & makes them so memorable.

Their five albums roamed over desert rock, warped psychedelia, fucked-up country, jangle-pop, & lysergic blues. They covered Jimi Hendrix, Can, Suicide, Jimmy Reed, Duke Ellington, the Byrds, Hawkwind, Lee Hazlewood, & Marty Robbins.

I have chosen their sophomore effort Moonhead to showcase here. This is the 1989 re-release with the remastered long cut of "Take it Home" & 4 additional tracks not on the original Zippo version.

PeΔrls of J 😊y

 

There are often occasions that I delve into weird micro-genres, just to see what craziness abounds. I posted up a set of vaporwave in the past, just one such example.

Sometime in the early 2010s I was checking out Witch House bands. I liked the idea of the use of Unicode symbols in many of the band names which played into the Residents "Theory of Obscurity" by making it hard to Google their music. I liked the strange horror-film theme on oxycodone backward-masked studio manipulation of it. But it didn't take long to wear thin. Style over substance soon seemed the key ingredient & I fazed out of that phase.

While still delving into the genre around 2013, I came across The PeΔrls. I initially assumed by the spelling of the name that Witch House was what I would find. I was very mistaken. This was a couple of women from Milan, Italy: Simona of Thee Bomb'o'nyrics & Stella Santin of The Sensibles. They play the sweet hipster pop of bands like Best Coast with a dirty, lo-fi garage production that works perfectly. Their tunes are little peΔrls of euphoric joy delivered with muscle & authority. There's plenty of reverb & flanging among the garagey production along with a really upbeat nature.

So although I never really listen to Witch House bands like Salem, oOoOO, †‡†, Gr†LLGR†LL or White Ring anymore, I often find time to re-listen to this understated, underrated gem. Hope you find it as enjoyable as I do.

Listen to the Voice of the People

 

I was sitting around Casa Nada del Este the other night. Black Dahli & Lao were at some womyns book club & faux clambake. I decide I'd get baked myself. I dug some special weed I'd grown in Cali several seasons ago out of the freezer. I fired up the vaporizer & proceeded to travel to another state. All of a sudden I realized I was freakin'. Then I realized it was just the musick...

Been Avoiding the Bills Lately...Just Give Me a Little More Time

Before I continue on with Weird October, It's the first of the month & I've got Bills to p(l)ay. 

 

 

On one of my many Bill Nelson jags, this one March 2017 called Opus Illuminatus I shared with you all Chimes & Rings from the 4xCD Demonstrations of Affection, Cocteau Records CD JEAN89, 1989.

A few years on & a few years ago, I received the following comment from Mark1965:
     "Hi there, such a fantastic blog. thanks for the great posts. I'm hoping you may be able to help with a Bill Nelson recording that I am trying to locate, Nudity originally released as part of the Demonstrations of Affection 4 CD. Would you have it at all? The collection as all but disappeared. hoping that you may be able to help. Many thanks & have a great weekend. Best wishes M".

Well, I had sadly lost this hard-to-find treasure in one of my frustrating computer meltdowns.

I replied:
     "Ah, such a sour note. The Demonstrations of Affection lies unlistened to & as yet unlistenable on a external hard-drive that crashed on me about a year ago. More than 4T in music residing in limbo until I win the lottery or some other improbability. I will add this to the growing list of requests that I will gladly accommodate as I can. For now, let me know if you find Nudity or the rest. Thanks."

I have been valiantly trying to get my hands on it since then but to no avail...until yesterday when I dear friend gifted me a pristine rip of the 4x DoA set.

So Mark1965, if you're still out there & still need this (& to everyone else who loves Bill Nelson), here in its entirety is CD2 (JCCD25)...Nudity.

Weird October - - - The Lion Does NOT Sleep Tonite

After I'd worked out all September Dub posts, I was listening to much other, non-Dub musick. I delved deeply into such divergent musick as Sexwitch, Nasmak, Vox Populi & The PeΔrls to name but a few. 

If September felt like Dub month, October always seems like Weird month to me. After all, the weather drastically changes by its end it culminates in summer's true end or Samhain. 

All Hallows Eve. 

Halloween. 

So here's the one I want to start off October with...Strawberry Deutsche Mark.

I was listening to Whatever Happens Next... by Swell Maps the other night. It made me think about Epic Soundtrack & Nikki Sudden & particularly Jowe Head. I listened to Jowe's Strawberry Birthmarks but it didn't quite hit the (birth)mark that I was aiming to soothe. 

I needed a dose of Strawberry Deutsche Mark

''Coldfinger'' is a rave-up! 

I thought rather than search for hours through my labyrinthian filing stashing system heaps, I'd just grab a copy from the interweb...you know, make it easy on myself. Well, low & behold, I couldn't find it anywhere & so I decided I knew the remedy for that. So after only having to look three places...the obvious file: # - K (no luck)...Working from Here Now 1.0 (ditto)... & finally Working from Here Now 2.0. Voila...I give you...
