Welcome to the World of Weirdo

 

Hiya, everybody.
Tomorrow night here at the shop, be here at 8p for acoustic string plucking by Ryan Lee Crosby, and if we're lucky he'll also be backed up and/or joined by a pal or two.

This Wednesday the 14th I'll be hosting an open mic within the plump, red velvet folds of the lounge inside King's Bowling Alley (50 Dalton St, near the Hynes T) from 8 til 11:30p. Music, comedy, poetry, and other bizarre performance-based stuff is all welcome, so come, sign up, & show 'em 5 minutes of what you've got. The drinks & food are great there, and the people onstage are intensely awkward. It's super fun, and especially this week, you should look out for a bonus contest! I'm concocting it in my head right now, so be there & find out how it goes.

Title- Label Price
Alvarius B What One Man Can Do... Neck of God lp

Alvarius B What One Man Can Do... Neck of God lp

lp 2014/1990-99 new No album can come through, named or unnamed, and clean up your town for you. But a good one can help you guess what to do with the bodies, so long as you're willing to kill your own villains. Follow up to 'Fuck You and the Horse You Rode In On' that sits nicely between the first two self-titled albums, as Abduction continues quietly releasing the secret homemade cassettes of the guy who prefers acid frog to lizard king. Just one battered, low-tuned acoustic with what I assume to be long frozen pegs, and a low E that rattles like a snake about to strike. As the 90s arrive the tunes begin to slow down just a little, though 'Harsh Shadows' still ends with playing so fast that you literally hear the guitar clunk to the floor at the end. But one little sudden slide, or one too many bent notes, and there you are, sitting in the sand beside shadowy half-brothers to SCG songs (like 'Attic Memory', so close & yet so far from 'Civet's Tango'). There are things that approach folk or rock, sure ('Mean Crossover', 'Cedar Point'). But if you're one of those people whose Burmese hotel always turns out to be haunted, you can now bury whatever remains behind a smaller, shallower grave that reads "1990-1999".

Bill Cosby & His White Puddin Pops The Passion of the Pops lp

Bill Cosby & His White Puddin Pops The Passion of the Pops lp

lp 2011/2005 new Ah, just when all the records seem to take themselves a little too seriously, one like this comes along to pour beer over your head & de-pants you. Gleefully messy, out of tune party anthems with joyful keyboard slams & violently untutored horn solos. Though some sources say NYC, looks to be the work of two bands combining (Seattle's Coconut Coolouts & TacocaT). Doesn't matter, as the real point of the record is all the call & response shouting between the girl and boy teams.
Krazy Punx $12.50



Billy Childish & Sexton Ming Dung Beetle Rolls Again lp

Billy Childish & Sexton Ming Dung Beetle Rolls Again lp

lp 2012/2003-11 new Grump, anti-art artist, & puerile surrealist Sexton Ming joins his cohort Childish in banging on boxes, injuring ukuleles/chord organs, & humming no-chord singalongs into cassette recorders. Their ability to poke blackhearted fun at defenseless animals, inanimate objects & elderly persons makes them the best duo to be birthed by the UK since Derek & Clive. A fine surprise, as it's their 1st new album in ten years, and it even includes a Doors & a Beatles cover. Time has only made Ming's voice wetter & uglier, & it couldn't be more gorgeous.
Damaged Goods $21.50



Bob Chance It's Broken lp

Bob Chance It's Broken lp

lp 2012/1980 new As disarming as it is disturbing, this is truly a perfect white guy come-hither record. If you're freaky enough. Gloriously inappropriate songwriting verve that recalls both the Beach Boys' 'Love You' & Gary Wilson's 'You Think You Really Know Me'. Irrepressibly sincere & vapid backing arrangements that range from innocent doo wop to roller rink disco, with organ & tiny little trebly drums. Bob has very, very hairy knuckles, but he nonetheless croons tenderly about rainbows, brown skin (he likes it... on his ladies... a lot), & gigolos who kidnap girls with pedo-vans.
Trunk $16.00



Brainbombs Urge to Kill lp

Brainbombs Urge to Kill lp

lp 2010/1999 new Swedish band that loves Peter Sotos, drinking, serial killers, and heavy fucking rock, in that order. Some bot mots from a 1992 interview: "Johannes: If a man were sucking your dick, would you prefer him to have a gun, or you? Dan: Why... would he be sucking my dick? Johannes: No idea, but he's doing it, alright, who has the gun? Dan: I, naturally. When I come, I pull the trigger. Fredrik: Wasting yourself or him? Dan: Him, of course. Johannes: That's less homophobic than the reverse: 'he would have to have a gun for me to do it'. Peter: Sex is sex, whichever way. Johannes: No prejudice here." Even though the band has many songs with more gory imagery, I think the flat affect of 'Driving Through Leeds' (about Peter Sutcliffe being too tired to bludgeon anyone further) is the most brutal of them all.

Budy Maglione Cannibal Ferox lp

Budy Maglione Cannibal Ferox lp

lp 2014/1981 new Umberto Lenzi (Eaten Alive, Kriminal, Spasmo, Carroll Baker's Paranoia) pretty much accidentally invented the cannibal film with 'Man From Deep River'. His capitalization on his own detour here is fairly gory, and is sometimes billed as the poor man's 'Cannibal Holocaust' (which is nuts, as 'Holocaust' is already a flick fit for the homeless). One of the best things about 'Ferox' is the campy overacting of villanous cokehead John Morghen/Mike, and his interview in the notes here is neato. The great, porn-sweaty, sleazoid soundtrack is the flick's other saving grace. Deadly slow synths with little cheap bells & faux strings, tinny disco hi-hats, terse cop show funk bass, sunny soul horns, & bizarre harmonized-at-the-fifth lines (that were only popular right after the release of the first Boston album). Soundtrack was made by Roberto Donati and Maria Fiamma Maglione (who also has a small acting role in the movie as Mike's girlfriend) under their pseudonym Budy.

Ennio Morricone Veruschka 2lp

Ennio Morricone Veruschka 2lp

2lp 2003/1971 new Sure, it's difficult to pick a single Morricone score to tower above such a mountain of them. But this would have to be up near the tippy-top on anybody's list. Edda Dell'Orso begins with witchy whispering, and the score moves through tracks of her sighing & blowing air over tuned drums. There's also an exquisite pair of lounge themes that get transferred around to a variety of instruments, fractalized & put back together again by pianos, harpsichords, organs, Edda at her purest. And it's all often soaring over swells that can only be described as ambrosial. Just when your chest starts to ache from how pretty everything is, the mood switches back to avant for a recurring track appropriately titled 'Abstract': strings, echoes, & chiming clock impressions, free trombone, & even some cat growls. The movie was basically a long video for the body paintings of model/contortionist Veruschka, who got her start with a cameo in 'Blow Up' and was still commanding a runway at age 71. 10 bonus tracks.

Giacinto Scelsi cd

Giacinto Scelsi cd

cd 2002/1961-90 new Nothing but quivering strings, close up & in small combinations across tight ranges of microtones, played for maximum tension. Recordings stretch over a number of years, but there's a suprising cohesiveness to the recording quality & performance style. One of Scelsi's most famous pieces, 'Quattro Pezzi', is here- it's the one that makes the case for entire compositions based on a single note. A touch of Japanese Noh knockoff in one spot, but otherwise it's all shudder.
Edition RZ $19.50

lp 2007/1959-73 new Portland jazz drummer who expanded into electric violin, cello, echoplex, tape deck, bells, voices, & more. Rockey appears on some early Smegma records as well as a Herbie Mann album, making him a real missing link between modern jazz and modern yuck. Here's some home tapes with a pal playing cello.

Los Jaivas El Volantin lp

Los Jaivas El Volantin lp

lp 2006/1971 new Chilean psych, so get your ass moving. Their first album. There is flute here, but it's not progressive in the slightest. This record sounds more like ESP's Godz or Seventh Sons than anything else I can name, and that's not something I'd toss out lightly. Raw & dumb drumming, some stoned chants, etc. I know Shadoks lps are expensive, but a rare few of them are so good the'd be worth the mortgage on your grandma's house.

Michel Chion Requiem lp

lp 2008/1978 new Oh it's funeral music all right, & I sincerely hope this is what it sounds like once I'm dead. Awesomely evil & gloomy ghost whispering that's right up close & pinpricky, some feathery whines, & a few faraway, dead dry clunkings. Chion was a right hand man for Pierre Schaeffer as he got older, & spent several years at INA GRM.

Pescado Rabioso 2

Pescado Rabioso 2

cd 1996/1973 new Aka 'Artaud'. Luis Alberto Spinetta's main band Almendra had split up, & he'd made a solo album which flopped & sent him packing to Europe for a while. In 72 he moved home and began again, and Pescado Rabioso was the band he formed. By this 2nd album, the backup band was once again splintering, and Spinetta mostly wrote & recorded it himself. If you know some Spanish, you might catch a couple of literary references (Artaud, Rimbaud). But even if you don't it'll still sound like a cross between 'Whiter Shade of Pale' and the Band's 'I Shall Be Released'.
Sony Music $13.00



Piero Piccioni Camille 2000 2lp

Piero Piccioni Camille 2000 2lp

2lp 1998/1969 new Soundtrack to the smashing late 60s cheese porn flick from director Radley Metzger, whose movies from this period are basically all 'Valley of the Dolls' with shitloads more nudity. Bossa & lounge that accompany endless plastic bubble couches & clear cube lamps. Some funk crops up for the cute S&M/jailhouse rock sex scenes, and then you can float right back for some fluffy organ & go go boots. These boobs are made for walkin, alright.

And as more & more of Jackson's stuff makes it out into the world, more & more of it turns out to be harrowing, hypnotic, cathartic volcanoes of sound. Cassettes that Jackson made to document his own performances, except one that was saved on an 8 track.

Rodolfo Caesar A Arte Dos Sons cdr

Rodolfo Caesar A Arte Dos Sons cdr

cdr 2011/1975-78 new Lot of low shudders & keening chirps by this composer from Rio who traveled to Paris to make a 2nd generation musique concrete record for the GRM. He says in the notes that people don't need to resort to visualizations to listen to his pieces. Musicians say such things sometimes (especially those who're thinking about Pierre Schaffer). All they really mean is that they'd like to you pay attention & work up your own opinion instead of recycling your neighbor's. Be warned though, that anti-visualization thing is a terrible idea to take too literally. I mean, would you really be more appreciative of someone's writing if they refrained from ever using any metaphors? Is it even possible to write full sentences without them? Thankfully, you don't have to judge a record by it's artspeak.

Romolo Grano Musica Elettronica cdr

Romolo Grano Musica Elettronica cdr

cdr 2011/1973 new Italian library music that's pure electronic blorp, & so a little more on the stoic & dry side than the lounge one. Grano seems to've mostly done tv soundtrack work, and his pieces here are elegantly unencumbered & mostly reminiscient of a dated kid's science show.
Creel Pone $9.00



Schnabi Gaggi Pissi Gaggi lp

Schnabi Gaggi Pissi Gaggi lp

lp 2007/1993 new Joke Lanz (aka Sudden Infant), Celeste Urech (the 3 year old daughter of Mr. Infant), & Rudolf Eb.Er (Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock) all performing together at a show in Switzerland. A few sweepy 80s sounds, weighty rock bass, retardo drums, nazi-style yelling through pedals. All songs except one written by Celeste. Totally puts the power back in the power trio. Part of Tochnit Aleph's 'Punk Series'.

Shadow Ring Life Review 2cd

Shadow Ring Life Review 2cd

2cd 2009/1993-03 new Get out your thesaurus and look up the word 'dour', and then don't forget to see the footnotes on 'glum', cause the non-hits of the shadow ring are here to put dark circles under your eyes. Dry & claustrophobic 4 track putterings which often double as absurdist skits. Usually written about the abstract thoughts of the lint-covered & hopeless. Graham Lambkin alternately clangs things and mindlessly spiderwalks them, Tim Goss sometimes shows up to bang on stuff, and it's all led by the band's secret weapon: the concrete-thick accent of Darren Harris. Follow them through the early days of bony elbows sticking out of costal English sweaters and all the way through the bad moustache years in upstate NY.

Shoes This High Straight To Hell lp

Shoes This High Straight To Hell lp

lp 2014/1980 new Wellington, New Zealand primo art damage. They only ever put out a single (that coulda been on Flying Nun, but the label didn't exist yet). Tape of a live show found in the collection of archivist Bob Sutton, who's known for videotaping hundreds of shows all the way through the 1990s. Sound quality is fantastic, and the performance is harsher than their single even, with a few calls out to the Fall or the Birthday Party that are pretty fair game for the time. Volatile singer Brent Hayward has the menace that makes the band, and he slides constantly between pitches, shouts, talking, and sheer psychotic hysteria. Hayward went on to a milder solo project called Smelly Feet, & also a folk duo (that's darn hard to imagine while listening to this) with a girl singer called Kiwi Animal.

10 inch 2014/2013 new Wind through the muddy Nine Dragon river delta with a pentatonic scale that goes out of it's way to roll over & drown each tiny light in a long school of floating kiddie candle boats. Solo acoustic all around. One long cut recorded on vacation in Thailand, with the other side taken from recent download releases that've replaced SRB's much-coveted cdr series (these are from 'Neither Fish Nor Flesh' & 'Mystery Guild'). There's a particularly graceful western gallop shoved into short form for 'Sand Shuffle', and 'Coronado's Broom' visits longtime pal 'Echoes of Spain' again, with a little more emphasis on Spanish dancing this time.

Sun City Girls 330003 Crossdressers From Beyond the Rig Veda 3lp

3lp 2010/2004/1996/1988-96 new Whether they're holding a goat by the neck for impending sacrifice, gouging your eye with a banjo string, or as reviewer Mark Prindle once wrote "pouring an industrial-sized barrel full of liquid poop off of a warehouse dock into your ear", this record is one of the major hydra heads of the SCG catalog. So cut it off while you can. Instrumental-ish sister to the talky 'Dante's Disneyland Inferno', & the first record to feature the band's gamelan. Loads of covers both credited & otherwise (Bollywood, Morocco, & Haiti all get a visit). Also one of the major spots to find some of those lickable, limber, piano limericks. Not a ton of jazz scribbling, but the long-ass improv with Eyvind Kang does lay tracks from here to the Karakoram Highway.

Various A Orillas Del Magdalena lp

Various A Orillas Del Magdalena lp

lp 2009/195x-7x new Radiant cumbias from Colombia in the 50s & 60s. Soft accordions with snaking melodies, an inistent rhythm said to sound like the bouncing shackles on the ankles of slaves, and also horns, chants and tons of unusual percussion accents. If you travel to Colombia today, this would be the equivalent of listening to 'Sitting on the Dock of the Bay' (that is to say, trashy parent music), but with such a slinky sound, you can easily hear why it spread hastily through the rest of Latin America. Compiled by the fine New Orleans store Domino Sound Record Shack.

Various Anthology of Dutch Electronic Tape Music Vol. 1 2cdr

2cdr 2008/1955-66 new Electronic tape music was a huge goverment-approved project in the Netherlands that was also popular, something on the level of the building of Disney in the US. Between the early 50s and the mid 60s, 11 new studios were built. The two anthologies in this series are crucial documents of the wacko Scandinavians at work, compiled by king of ping pong tape pieces Dick Raaijmakers.

Various Banned in Czechoslovakia lp

Various Banned in Czechoslovakia lp

lp 2012/1975-90 new To play music in public in Iron Curtain Prague, you had to submit what you did to a board & get a license. Anyone who bucked the system had to build their own equipment, jerry rig recording themselves on hand-copied cassettes, & if they were good enough to get people to come see them play in a kitchen, risk being arrested and/or deported. If they could've, these bands probably would have been playing some sort of awful Zappa-Steely Dan-Coltrane hybrid. Instead their clawed guitars are so cruddy, their elation so bitter, that the result couldn't be more scratched-up & nasty. Also, turns out the Czech government was right: arrests of these same musicians is what inspired the writing of the Charta 77 that eventually broke open protests in the late 80s (though everybody here was still recording on shitty boomboxes). The Plastic People & related splinter bands DJ 307 & Pulnoc all appear.

And so do these rembetika songs, twisting & flashing around & around, over & over. Hear the bouzouki & the dazzling voices that tangled with it as they rise out of the disaster created by the Greco-Turkish war & population exchange. 78s compiled by Ian Nagoski, who has fallen deeper into this particular ravine than you've fallen into anything, & still come out smiling. Notes are also the best thing I've read in about 5 years. They include a great explanation of why you have to generally forgive musical dilettantes, but also brilliant one-liners like "Fuck the fucking police."

You can hear the elegance of 40s swing matched up to hometown dance rhythms especially well early on in the set, as local fellas like Lucho Bermudez started arranging what the kids & bumpkins liked to hear for high society instruments. Curro Fuentes' deep bass sound is the focus, but there's a din of ratchets, bonks, pongs, and tappings licking around all sides of it.

Various Diablos del Ritmo Part 2 2lp

2lp 2012/1960-83 new Colombian coastal music was thriving throughout the 60s, and had a reflective coming of age in the 70s as cumbia, vallenato, & porro became manifestations for breaking social barriers as well as party tunes. At the same time, thanks to highly competetive sound system djs, unknown highlife tracks were played at block parties & given imaginative new names like 'my grandfather's pajamas', 'the cow that recently gave birth', and 'the party wizard'. These riffs & soukous mixups in turn ended up in champeta & salsa, and in the meantime there were completely smoking afro-influenced guitars & horns flying in all directions. Part 2 actually goes earlier that Part 1, digging deep into the scratchy guiros & shakers of the Discos Fuentes sound to give you an idea of how different things got after those Congolese lps showed up. Incredible dance parties can be had to the clicks & wheezes of the accordions here.

Various In the Storm So Long lp

lp 2010/1961-78 new Poignant overview of the Georgia gospel quartet label Pitch, run by Waymond Jones. Jones' story reads like many who love music- he scraped around, opened a record shop, lived in the back, never made a dime, and kept at it until life's vicissitudes eventually swept him aside. Once when he threatened to close his shop, a little neighborhood girl put together a petition to make him stay open. Jones recorded local gospel quartets once in a while, apparently just on the basis of his musical tastes, and the results are stunning. Raucous soul, tight & foxy tunes dripping with organ, voices so clear they seem to bounce around the rafters. You can hear doo wop influences now & again, or jazz piano, or proto-rockabilly. If you haven't checked out a Mississippi release in a while, try this one.

cdr 2011/1964-74 new The sole lp by this Polish composer who went to Darmstadt, headed an electronic music studio in Warsaw. Slow silver wooshes that glow like the ghostly footprints of Robby the Robot give way to peals of thin beeping & electronic battleship games. A chance piece, an improvisation on 3 different EMS Synthis, and some cymbal crashes & atonal woodwinds.
