dave hamilton’s detroit soul

Hard to find info on Dave Hamilton on the web that isn’t already on Ace’s site – or picked from the booklets to their releases … The collection so far:

a 4th cellarful of motown

Cellarfulmotown4Tamlamotownlogo

Utterly wonderful tracks by Holland & Dozier (sung by LaBrenda Ben), by the Monitors (lead vocals by Sandra Fagin) and by the Temptations, and a track to puzzle fans of Edwyn Collins by Robert Dobyne of the Artistics … all off a hard to find v/a 2cd with a hard to read (because badly designed) booklet. Speaking of hard to swallow: don’t you just hate it when labels don’t update their sites? How they don’t even know how to keep a site going that simply lists their catalogue (Blue Note, EMI, Universal …) even if they have all the money in the world? The worst is Universal UK, which redirects you to this impractical nonsense … or just keeps you hangin’ on … Do they think we’re children or whàt!? Just try to find any info on this fourth volume on any of the Universal sites! Worst of all is the url printed on previous volumes of “A Cellarful Of Motown” – where the least Universal UK could do is update the site for those people who come across an old 2cd of a mere couple of years ago and want to learn about newer volumes. Aw, it’s plain awful salesmanship. Anyhoo, this is all I found … a good thing there’s fan fed sites such as Discogs!

2010-03-09: bore all monsters

= a classic song (those lyrics) and a seminal performance by la Niagara, back in 1978!
2010-03-09 @ Cinema Zuid, Antwerp: “Understanding Destroy All Monsters from the bottom of the pool” lecture by ex Destroy All Monsters member ànd filmmaker Cary Loren + screening of his “Banzai Detroit” (18′). This last minute ish event has not yet been mentioned on http://www.cinemazuid.be/

Extra: by coincidence, I’ve been mailing with Mike Mosher, associate professor at Saginaw Valley State University … On 2010-03-19, at the Ann Arbor Library, during the Ann Arbor Film Festival, he’ll be giving a talk about the ’70s Super 8 movies by Jimm Juback & Cary Loren. [And for completists: back in 1993, Mosher did a project with Ben Miller, the sax on “Bored” and brother of Larry (second guitar on “Bored”, after Ron Asheton); more on that project here.]
