Erica Pomerance - You Used to Think

YOU USED TO THINK is one of those rarities of pure inspiration that rates up there with first platters by the MC5, Stooges, Fugs, Velvet Underground, Silver Apples, Godz, Pearls Before Swine, etc... a classic ‘68 underground album: a collage of fucked-up eastern ragas, jazz, and atonal folk rock, delivered in a beautiful, raspy, feverish, drug-induced howl, featuring the poetry and singular voice of Erica Pomerance. ESP produced more than its share of outsider visions and here was an album more like a situation, that peeked inside and outside the bullcrap of the music world and the various genres it endlessly pumps out.

Get it here.

Bruce Haack Movie

Some time ago Swedish television SVT aired the documentary "Haack - the King of Techno" (Swedish txt). A stunning glimpse into the world of early computer/electronica. Lucky Swedes! Alas, Norwegian broadcasters still have a long way to go...

Track 03 K2 (Ruckzuck) (19:20)
Track 04 K3 (15:19)
Track 05 K4 (11:30) you listen it becomes obvious that this is indeed a recording of the rather short-lived lineup of Kraftwerk that includes Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger in its ranks! That's right - Neu! as part of Kraftwerk!!! Original link.

Bad News - See the film get the files

The excellent blog Milton Berle's Cock has provided us with this GREAT album by "Bad News". It deals with the intricate and delicate situations emerging within a modern rock band, and the music that they produce. Originally Bad News was part of some episodes by the brit comedy series "The Comic Strip". BN was famous for their physical comedy starring people known from shows such as "The Young Ones", "Bottom" and "Four men in a ..." Enjoy

Raymond Scott

«Raymond Scott was a very creative guy, but an absolute madman! When I first worked for him in the 1950s, he had built a sequencer with relays, motors, steppers and electronic circuits. I had-never-seen-anything-like it.»

The following two albums for download are for prelisten. I recommend that you take a look at and possibly buy something from BASTA-records who issued the «Manhattan Research Inc» It is a remarkable 2cd-set, and contains a nice large booklet - all compiled by mr. Irwin Chusid, author of "songs in the key of z" and a dj at WFMU... So, enjoy these two releases and catch a glimpse into the world of the first loops made without the use of magnetic tape. The «powerhouse» release is all radio sessions made between 1935-39, and is nothing like what Scott later became famous for - electronic music...

Raymond Scott - Manhattan Research Inc (link)

«It was the size of a football field! More than half a dozen big rooms, impeccably set-up. The floors were painted like a high class industrial laboratory. He had a whole room of metal-working equipment, a room full of wood-working equipment, and this huge barn of a room for electronics.»

Rock Snobs will become as obsolete as CDs

Washington Diarist - REMASTERED - by Michael Crowley
Since the dawn of rock, there have been individuals, usually young men, of argumentative tendencies who have lorded their encyclopedic musical knowledge over others." So states the introduction of the recent Rock Snob's Dictionary, compiled by David Kamp and Steven Daly. I like to believe I'm not the insufferable dweeb suggested by this definition. Certainly, much of the dictionary's obscure trivia (former Television bassist Richard Hell is now a novelist; Norwegian death metal stars actually murder one another) is news to me. But I do place an unusual, perhaps irrational, value on rock music. I take considerable pride in my huge collection and carefully refined taste. And I consider bad rock taste--or, worse, no rock taste at all--clear evidence of a fallow soul. I am, in other words, a certified Rock Snob. But I fear that Rock Snobs are in grave danger. We are being ruined by the iPod. Read the rest of the article here.

Quote: «Anarchist Retchcore collective United Cutlery offered us a hundred and fifty Euros to do a video for this track, which they told us was about monkeys and domestic violence. We reinterpreted it as a Betty Crocker morality tale. With fireballs. The one minute piece uses about 5s of source footage from a 1950's industrial film we found on»

Bill Bailey - the bearded one...

If you haven't heard of Bill Bailey yet, I surely envy you. Because you've got so much to look forward to. He is a remarkable comedian with both stage acts including music, and who can forget - his "Manny" caracter in Black Books! Anywho, here are som BB quotes. The New York show in mp3's. More audio bits. And even more, from his Bewilderness CD. A video clip with BB and BB(Billy Bragg) doing Unisex Chip Shop at Glastonbury (good one!). And this "Chaucer Pubbe Gagge (YouTube)

A little lyric snippet - on the increased "whiny, self pitying" sound of American rock:

You pick me up from school
Attend all my sporting functions
Bought me a car
Gave me use of a credit card
But how can I feel pain?
How can I feel pain?
How can I feel pain
When you're being so supportive

We Feed the World, a film by Erwin Wagenhofer

WE FEED THE WORLD is a film about food and globalisation, fishermen and farmers, long-distance lorry drivers and high-powered corporate executives, the flow of goods and cash flow–a film about scarcity amid plenty. With its unforgettable images, the film provides insight into the production of our food and answers the question what world hunger has to do with us . See trailer.

From Twin Peaks Brewing Co

The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper are a riot! They are audio cassettes taken partly from the series and partly afterwards. They chronicle his time in Twin Peaks, including all kinds of extra material. Always addressed to "Diane" and always interesting. It's also out of print, but you can download the .mp3 file here(side 1) and here(side 2).

Amanda says: "This is loads of fun no matter what. Coop is da man. Don't care what anyone says."
