bish bosch man

Scott Engel (Walker) has a new track! Two actually! And soon (2012-12-04) there’s his new album! Simple cd or double lp with free cd … incorporating the video. And what not. Clever 4AD merchandising. Pushing sales from advanced and regular markets. Ah, fans. But it’s the music we’re curious for. You can listen to a second track at http://pitchfork.com/news/48512-listen-to-two-tracks-from-scott-walkers-new-album/ while you digest this must read interview : http://thequietus.com/articles/10908-scott-walker-interview

from beasley street to beasley boulevard

The making of Beasley Street (1978) by John Cooper Clarke has just been described by Graeme Thomson in Uncut magazine Take 185 (“October 2012” but actually released 2012-09 – silly Britons), p. 56-58. The original studio recorded version of his poem can be found on JCC’s 1980 lp Snap, Crackle [&] Bop. on Epic, which was written, played, arranged & produced by the Cheese Nightmares aka the Invisible Girls (Martin ‘ZeroHannett & Steve Hopkins), ably assisted by Lynn Oakey, Pete Shelley, Trevor Spencer, Paul Burgess, Karl Burns, Toby, Dave Hassell, Stephanie Formula … and Vinni Reilly aka the Durutti Column! In 2008, Mr. Cooper Clarke wrote a sequel for BBC Radio 4’s Bespoken wordshow, viz. Beasley Boulevard“.

can’t wait for hologram mashups

After reading http://www.roughtype.com/archives/2012/06/live_fast_die_y.php one kind of wonders whether some sort of Hexstatic Negativland projection mashup might be possible, orchestrating a Dead Legends Supergroup … As for the clip above: http://wiki.killuglyradio.com/wiki/Jerry_And_The_Holograms + http://www.discogs.com/artist/Gerry+And+The+Holograms

matching mole two

RedrecordOntheradio_big3

Esoteric have reissued both Matching Mole albums as “Expanded Edition” 2cd’s with BBC Radio One ànd previously unreleased bonus tracks on a separate disc … There’s no significant overlaps with “Smoke Signals” (2001, live in Europe 1972) and “March” (2002, live in Europe 1972-03) on Cuneiform, though. These two tracks are off the second album “‘s Little Red Record” (CBS 1972, Esoteric 2012 cat. no. ECLEC 22312) as produced by Robert Fripp … Brian Eno plays VCS3 synth on Gloria Gloom(ulloder Richard D James), andGod songhas the most exquisite Robert Wyatt lyrics. “Starting in the middle of the day we can drink our politics away (take one)” and the utterly zany “Mutter” were recorded 1972-08 during album session recordings and have been previously unreleased hitherto.

time of the season

Media_httpwwwmarmalad_vswai

Rod Argent wrote Time of the seasonfor the Zombies in 1967. Here’s an alternate mix, a 1968 Date USA promo jingle, some Kenny Everett zaniness broadcast 1968-04 on the BBC, and a live version from 1974. As for cover versions, see my next post
