oooozze it out for music for life

Why this scatomological Bonzo Dog Band post? Well, on the occasion of Music for Life“, a potlatch which our public broadcasters VRT are abandoning a tad too soon – see also http://snaporaz.posterous.com/potlatch-vs-the-prisoners-dilemma

2011-01-07: who’s got the funk, mia?

Media_http4bpblogspot_becqa

Can’t believe Stijn wasn’t nominated for the 2011 Mia‘s as funkiest of the year, alongside Brzzvll – though the latter got a well deserved nomination for their and Afreux‘s album artwork! Bit monomanic pop & rock, aren’t they, against the VRT’s mission? As if urban as a category is inimaginable in our de facto multicultural society. Oh well … Here’s two tracks off Stijn’s third “Ten Danz” (Mijn Label 2010) – “WUGDAI” has Andrew “Chi” Claes of Brzzvll on sax and “Weten” Fabergé of Dutch rappers de Jeugd van Tegenwoordig – ànd the 1972 original of a track which Brzzvll often cover live … by Archie Shepp.

happy eleven y’all !


Eleven! Time zonesis one of thé utterly superior slices of cut ‘n’ paste radio taping montage ever. It’s off the Escape From Noise lp (SST 1987) by Negativland, thé masters at the media reappropriation craft. Ten years later, after the break i.e., their Truth in advertisingsingle (Eerie Materials, 1997) would set another standard.

wicker man willow song

Thewickerman1973bThewickerman1973e

A rare instrumental version of the key track (off the Silva Screen site of yore) + a cover version from 1989, on Imaginary … I guess Alex Cox & BBC2 had screened Robin Hardy’s “The wicker man” (1973) a year (or two) earlier, and Britt Ekland’s dance must’ve caught the imagination … For a long time, we thought Trees were behind the soundtrack (and our old LaSalle ran great) … those were the days …

Soundtrack review via U0226 + lots nay loads of info on “The wicker man” (Robin Hardy 1973) via http://zaropans.wordpress.com/tag/wickermanthe/ !
