THE MAN ON THE RECORD TOLD ME

Goodness, i only wrote the one thing since last week. Shame, shame, shame...

THE MAN ON THE RECORD TOLD ME

The man on the record told me that the price of everything was on a downturn and now was a good time to fall in love and have someone to cook my egg and bacon, but I like to cook my own and egg and bacon, and i look to cook my someone eggs and bacon too, hearing that sizzle and the bubble oh it's nice, and when i get all ready and tabascoed up and she's sitting in bed expectantly with her big eyes all moony, oh it's a morning joy

THE GINCHIEST MIX (2012)


(---LEE GORDON--- ^^^^^^^^)

I recently found this mix I did for somebody's project of some kind that never happened. I wrote liner notes for it and everything (including a refence to my then girlfriends dog, Rodney. Miss you, Rod!). Here it is, three years later! The songs are now three years older, but they were already old then, and dumb songs about cowboys and ghosts never go out of style…

DOWNLOAD HERE

THE CASTILES - ENCHANTMENT (Magenta)This is like a lovably crappy attempt at that Eden Ahbez "Eden's Island" kinda steez. I still chasin that Eden Ahbez LP, this'll have to do in the meantime…

THE EL TORROS - YELLOW HAND (Duke)Just my kinda thing at the moment! A popcorny groove and some lyrics about indians or arabs or ghosts or something like that, that's my kinda shit. Great lyrics on this thing, love the bit about using a whole buffaloes hide to make one shoe for Yellow Hand. We've started singing this to my girlfriends dog, Rodney, cause he's got yellow hands…

CHAMP BUTLER WITH THE BUDDY COLE QUINTET - KAW-LIGA (Columbia)More Indians! Love those hoo cha ha BV's. I always thought the upbeat chorus part kinda ruined the hank williams version, and it sounds even stupider here, but it's still good altogether. Nice to hear Champ jazzing it up. I think I might be the only Champ Butler fan under 80, but dang it I like his style…

JOHNNY WESTERN - LIGHT THE FUSE (Phillips)I love these country records that kinda cross over into r'n'b territory with nice ripping guitar breaks, and of course the lyrics and the whole theme of this thing is fantastic. Johnny Western is great at this cinematic cowboy shit, check out his masterwork "Cowpoke" if you don't know it.

PAUL WIBIER - SATAN (Pendulum) Another one that's all about the lyrics! Nice mariachi horns and cool organ, but really this song is so badass cause he sings "I was born mean, by the time i was 12, i was killing, killing for satan..." It's from a biker movie called "Satans Sadists". The soundtrack LP goes for money and isn't really that great altogether (though it does have an aternate version of 'Satan'), but thankfully this came out as a promo 45 too, with something lame on the other side.

CHUBBY CHECKER - GYPSY (20th Century)It sure blows peoples minds when you tell them this is Chubby Checker. Wild, face melting acid-rock-soul, or something. I never know which box to put it in when I get home and unpack records. He recorded a whole album of this type o stuff in Europe in the early 70's, but none of it's as good as 'Gypsy'. The other side of this 45 is this execrable cod reggae thing called "Reggae My Way".

JAMES DUHON - GRAVEYARD CREEP (Jetstream)Another one that combines several things I love, driving bass, bongos, spooky noises and a guy mumbling about ghouls. My copy has some nice mold on it too, which seems to suit the theme. Love the reference to Ripple wine…

BOBBY DIXON - WOMAN, YOU MADE ME (Probe)One of those comically long intros that just makes the killer piledriving groove that comes in all the more powerful if you can convince people to stay on the dancefloor for it. Bobby Dixon is Bobby Lee Fears from The Fabulous Denos, who did the original version of Lee Moses's 'Bad Girl'. Like 'Bad Girl', this is another one of those Johnny Brantley productions that despite being kinda wonky and messy and a little bit out of tune seems to packs 5 times the intensity of most 'well produced' records.

NOLAN STRONG & THE DIABLOS - (I'M IN LOVE) REAL TRUE LOVE (Fortune)Archetypal cruddy Fortune Records sound, handclaps to die for, and boy Chuck Chittenden sure gets that guitar singing on the solo. I remember the first time I heard that solo, I screwed up my face and went 'oooooooooh.' Written by Nathaniel Mayer. He eventually got around to recording it himself about 40 years later…

HOLLYWOOD JILLS - HE MAKES ME SO MAD (Tune-Kel)More crud! I love this kinda sloppy garage soul stuff with crappy skronking horns and lazy twangin guitar. A bunch of girls from New Orleans calling themselves The Hollywood Jills, that kinda thing seemed to be a common practice at the time. Anywhere is more exotic than wherever you are! The whole thing is so laaaaaaazy, and i love their accents. Written, produced, arranged and generally concocted by the legendary Sax Kari…

LA BRENDA BEN AND THE BELL JEANS - THE CHAPERONE (Gordy)There's so many great oddities by unknowns like "La Brenda Ben" in the first few years of Motown releases. I LOVE the way she drops into the deep voice for the annoying little brother part…

JACKIE HARRIS - NO KIND OF MAN (Chess)Another great extended intro, and such a thick, greasy guitar groove. The whole 'no kinda man' concept is great, and his over the top monologue about a woman letting him know he's 'the masterpiece of her life' always cracks me up…

THE STONE CRUSHERS - CRAWFISH (Rca)I found this randomly out the back of Hound Dog's Bop Shop on it's last weekend of operation. I didn't know it but thought it might be a version of the cool Elvis song. Put it on the turntable and flipped my proverbial wighat. That heaaaavy beat, the dueling flute and sax, the stupid opera vocals. The stuff record nerd dreams are made of. The Stone Crushers was apparently just a made up studio band led by Atlantic stalwart Jesse Stone for this one record.

B. BUMBLE AND THE STINGERS - NAUTILUS (Rendezvous)I love these guys! Another made-up group schemed into being by Kim Fowley and played by a bunch of crack LA studio musicians. This is quite an odd one for them, most of their records are rock n roll versions of classical tunes, that's their shtick, but this is going into some weird dreamy underwater ghost territory i am all too happy to follow them into…

BUCHANAN & GOODMAN - FLYING SAUCER THE 2ND (Luniverse)I have three of these B&G flying saucer records, but i thought it would be cruel to inflict all of them on you. I think this one is my favourite, especially for "a whiiiite, sports coat…"

BOB SEGER AND THE LAST HEARD - SOCK IT TO ME SANTA (Cameo)Bob Seger sure made some killer records in the heady pre-beard days of the 1960's. I love this kinda funky white Detroit rock n roll, and this one gets extra points for the twinkling bells and stupid guitar solo…

SONNY FLAHARTY AND THE MARK V - HEY CONDUCTOR (Phillips)And god said, "I shall make me an ultimate fuzzy guitar organ garage jam, with a perfect dumb simple riff to show off the excellent fuzzy tones I have created". And it was good.

THE HONEYCOMBS - CAN'T GET THROUGH TO YOU (Astor)I always liked "Have I The Right", but jeebus I didn't know they were capable of this. Possibly the punkest sounding 60's thing I've ever heard. Freaky amphetamine stalker music. Genius Joe Meek production, and the delightfully gamine Honey Lantree on drums. Pulled this out of a pile of filthy unsleeved singles, jeez you shoulda seen the colour of the rag after I cleaned it off...

THE FRANTICS - WEREWOLF (Dolton)Excellent minor key twang, fine snarling and howling, good job fellows. The other side is "No Werewolf", the same record but with no werewolf, for the faint of heart surfer.

BERNA-DEAN - ONE GAL IN TOWN, FIVE MEN HANGING AROUND (Imperial)Yet another great Dave Bartholemew number. Stack em up and they'll reach the moon, no doubt. Finger snaps, creepy organ, great lyrics. I'd like to see Jody doing his 'real crazy walk'…

DELLA REESE - SOLITARY WOMAN (Abc)This is the other side of her rather popular with the dj's funky version of 'it was a very good year', which unfortunately makes it harder to get a hold of than it should be since it actually cracked the billboard top 100 at the time. But this side is the side for me. The way she flips the lyrics and adds little things, her perfect sultry but weary delivery, that nice heavy minimal groove. And then when the organ man comes out and goes for his on the chorus, jesus, it's all over. The period between me first hearing this and actually getting a copy of it was just agony I tell you, agony every day…

KEN NORDINE WITH THE FRED KATZ GROUP - HUNGER IS FROM (Dot)I feel ya ken, I feel ya…

LEE GORDON - SHE'S THE GINCHIEST (Prestige) Lee Gordon was an American entrepeneur who moved to Australia in the 50's and introduced to our fair shore: 1)The Drive Through Restaurant 2) The Exotic Dance Club 3) The Rock n Roll Package Tour. What a guy. He also had his own label, Leedon, that released some killer 0Z 60's gear and cut this one record himself, a fabulous beatnik pisstake. "I dig the cool, fat feel of romance; cause she wears a skirt, and I wear pants. She's the ginchiest..."

COINS GO INTO A JUKEBOX

Nice noises...

COINS GO INTO A JUKEBOX
Coins go into a jukebox and they make a slippery metallic sound as they slip down into it's guts, and a wonderful pleasing shing ding sound as they are registered, and the jukebox is alight and ready to fulfil it's purpose. It makes a wonderful crunchy sound as the selection buttons get pushed in, and lovely whir as the records spin around to the selection. The robot arms grabs the 45 and with a wonderful thunk lays the record on the platter. Then another great but more electric thunk as the heavy tonearm brings the needle violently onto the record. And then the hiss of anticipation as it tracks along the run in groove, moving ever closer to the explosion of music. So many wonderful sounds before the record even starts.

HELLS CLUB MOVIE NIGHTCLUB SCENE MASHUP

This is pretty silly but it's very well done and makes your brain tingle in a special, special way. Bravo, Antonio Maria Da Silva...

Sheesus, there's so much stuff i didn't get to last week, like the ridiclously doomy anti-drug r'n'b record by a singing pimp, the music of the blind andean harpists,  the russian classical violin concertos, and the corny white vocal group arabsploitation dance record. And then on Saturday morning I went to the 3MBS record fair and bought 53 albums and 25 singles, including one album that features 60 french girl singers, and another one that tells "tutta la storia benito mussolini" (the whole story of benito mussolini). So hopefully some of all that stuff and some other stuff too.

I PUT THE JUG TO MY LIPS AND DRUNK DEEPLY
I put the jug to my lips and drank deeply. As my throat bulged and subsided with each swallow, the snake kissed my neck tenderly. Every now and then it would bare it's fangs and scrape them along my skin sensually, but it would never bite. When I had drunk my fill, I took the snake by the head and kissed it full on the mouth, staring deep into it's reptile eyes. Oh, what a feeling.

IN A MOMENT I SHALL USE THE JAWBONE OF AN ASS

In a moment I shall use the jawbone of an ass to make percussive sounds the likes of which your ears have never heard, your brain will fizz and your teeth will tingle one at a time in a lovely tooth buzzing glissando effect, your stomach will drop and your eyes will sparkle, the joints in your knees will rotate 360 degrees and and your shins will hum, it will be like the opposite of being kicked in the shins, that is how your shins will feel when these vibrations have travelled through the air and hit your ear drums and been transmitted to your brain and then relayed to your shins

DRINKING FROM CRYSTAL STREAMS

DRINKING FROM CRYSTAL STREAMS
Drinking from crystal streams, I am bent over and the crystals fill me up. They convince all the other cells in my body to turn into crystals and now I am The Man Made Of Crystals. As I walk through the countryside, all the beavers and other rodents see the light twinkling through me and get an extra little twinkle in their eye, and as they build dams and eat trees and dig holes, they do it with an extra sense of joie de vivre. I'm glad I can do my part. I hope when I reach the city that my sight will enliven and enlighten the humans, and they will not set upon me and tear me apart and sell my crystal body parts one at a time.

GENE MARSHALL - SMOKE IT: THE POT (197?)

My song poem fever has subsided from it's previously dangerous levels, but the recent re-emergence of Bangs and his great Jimmy Fallon diss track has reignited my flame for such things and I had a good old session last night. This one really got me going...

ON THE RADIO

I WAS HANGING OUT WITH THE BOYS IN MIAMI

I was hanging out with the boys in Miami, we had some great pastel sweaters on, nice trousers, Lars had his soul patch trimmed just right. We were looking fly as hell, busting some sweet unison dance moves. I was playing a little Spanish guitar. All of a sudden my beautiful girlfriend who never speaks, she got up and walked off down the beach. I called out to her, "where do you go, my lovely? where do you go?" She turned and I thought she may speak for the first time, but suddenly a shark leaped out of the water and ate her whole. Chomp.

NO MERCY - WHERE DO YOU GO (1996)


This blast from the past reappeared in my life a few days ago and I can't stop listening to it and watching the video. Homeboy in the back with the yellow jumper is my favourite. Frank Farian from Boney M was behind this one (Milli Vanilli too).

I'LL BE WITH YOU IN APPLE BLOSSOM TIME

I'll be with you in apple blossom time, under the tree. We will climb it and it's branches will twist around us as we embrace. We will be covered in apple blossoms as we kiss and eventually it will cut off our oxygen and we will die. And in the winter time when the blossoms have fallen and the tree is bare, we will be on display, pressed up against each other, cradled by the branches, until we are covered again in the next apple blossom time.

THE OLD ITALIAN LADY

The old Italian lady cooked rustic bread over an open fire. Soon the children would be coming to visit the village, and she would feed them this bread with broken glass baked into it. When she saw the children wince in pain and confusion as the glass dug into the inside of their mouths, her heart would leap. She had tried to get her kicks like most grandmothers did, by being kind and loving to children, but it left her feeling cold and empty and despicable. It was only when she was hurting them, and doing it an underhanded way such as this, that she felt truly alive, zinging with purpose. Perhaps children just had too good a time of it, and this was a balancing out of the universe, and this sweet, hot, dizzying feeling was her reward.


SMOOTA: BEYOND EROGENOUSZONE


SMOOTA. He is simply too much. He is playing at The Curtin front bar tonight with Silver Moon and Brite Fight. I recommend you come.

https://www.facebook.com/events/1632516186963329/

In preparation I recommend you have a look at his instagram account which is full of classic Smootaesque pictures, like this one of him riding a mechanical bull:

https://instagram.com/p/zuACjCFKEv/

And check out all his great videos

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQI5IajI4tRXCDfaBtjPGAA

Especially this one with the amazing swing



And this one if you are a voyeur (aren't we all?)




And check out his album on bandcamp

https://smoota.bandcamp.com/

and listen to this recording of the last time he appeared on my show, he does some killer songs that aren't on the album

BOILING CAULDRONS OVERFLOWING

I have started actively listening to classical music for the first time in my life. It certainly puts some images in your head. I wrote this one while listening to "Mazeppa" by Franz Liszt...

BOILING CAULDRONS OVERFLOWING
Boiling cauldrons overflowing, great crashing cymbals, mice scattering everyone. terror struck faces, armour covered giants striding purposefully through town, eagles circling overhead, a storm coming, impending doom, the army marching over the hillside, the gods getting angry, plots hatching, wicked winds a coming, raggedy carts coming down the road with them

POWERS OF TEN (Charles & Ray Eames, 1977)



My friend Jessie hipped me to this mind boggler last night. A breakdown of the relatively size of everything known, with a great electronic score from Elmer Bernstein. I assure you watching this will be 9 minutes well spent...

TELL OLD PHARAOH TO LET MY PEOPLE GO

Improvised old time vaudeville pharoah gags.

See the rest at

http://writingeverymorning.blogspot.com.au/

Wednesday, May 6, 2015
TELL OLD PHARAOH TO LET MY PEOPLE GO
"Tell old Pharaoh to let my people go"
"He's so old he can't hear it"
"Well turn up his hearing aid"
"He don't have no hearing aid no more, he dropped it in the toilet"
"Well write it down on a piece of paper for him"
"He can't read"
"Well draw a picture that'll give him the gist"
"He doesn't really do good at interpreting pictures"
"He's a fuckin egyptian! with all those heiroglyphics you telling me he can't interpret pictures?"
"He's a Pharaoh you know, they're all inbred, he has a hard time with a lot of things"
"Aw geez. We'll i'm just taking these goddamn people, to hell with him!"

that new kendrick lamarr record



Everybody was all about his first album and it didn't sound like nothing to me, so when everybody on the innanet was all about "you gotta hear this new kendrick album it's amaaaaaaaaaazing", I just thought "yeah, whatever, you guys says that about kanye and drake and all kinds of wack shit", but then Nature Girl made me listen to it, and it is in fact ROOLY ROOLY GOOD and I can't wait to listen to it some more. He's got all kinds of different flows and interesting lyrics and the music is mad Speakerboxxxx/The Love Below-esque and there's lots of jazz cats playing all over it and it's just really hype shit. So give it a listen however you listen to things! it's called "to pimp a butterfly"
