USED PICKS OF THE WEEK

LP - Kim Fowley - Outrageous


Dave - Permanent Records Chicago

 
$49.99 → Email If Interested LISTEN

"“Power, violence, noise, numbers, animalism, vulgarity and pure madness” are the solutions to today’s (well, 1968’s) problems, states Kim Fowley in the liners, along with: “Let’s get out of our minds to get back in.” Whoa. And within mere seconds of side one, he’s already scared off 99% of everyone who ever heard this record. The mayhem begins with “Animal Man,” musically akin to Steppenwolf covering The Music Machine’s “Talk Talk.” Which figures: as Mars Bonfire guests on the album along with (unbelievably enough) three members of Three Dog Night. And over the whole bubblegum/garage whack out is Kim Fowley’s barking vocals, changing tempo and inflection as he raps, flaps his arms, moans, pants, laughs and generally cavorts in front of the microphone like a lunatic. Here is his first of many vocal transmissions, repeated verbatim:

“I’m ugly...Hahaha...
dirty, filthy, sneaky, horrible...uughhhh!
I’m gonna kill you...
Are you straight? Well, I’m Animal Man! WHOA!
Yeaaugh! I’m a hounddogasavage...awudda wudda...tiger!
I’m the devil (burp)...!
I’m vulgar...!
I’m a pig...oink, oink! Haha...
I’m love addict...public enemy number one!
I’m gonna butcher all the girls in my loving room floor...”

Then a woman coos “Oh, Animal Man, you’re SO rough and SO big” which, of course, sets Fowley off into panting up a storm that fogs up the studio control room glass, quickly adding: “Oh, it’s too dirty, it’ll be banned...Ha ha...oh, Gawd...”

The cover shows a completely different Fowley: hair long but neatly combed over, all teen appeal with backing East German disco lighting. But it’s the back cover which shows the truer, dark side of “Outrageous”: Fowley’s wearing black leather, black turtleneck black gloves (WHY) and maniacal grimace, his hands tied together with a chain at the bottom of a drained pool up to his ankles in stagnant water. And the gatefold shows him cowering under a topless girl brandishing the chain in the same pool. Huh? Kim Fowley always seems to leave you with far too many unanswered questions. Like: Does he care? Does he WANT people to like his music? Or is he telling a big enough lie so that everyone -- Kim included -- gets deluded into believing it? And does he even exist?!! Listening to this album is like chain-smoking ciggies of insanity: one after another after another until it’s really starts to zap your head and you start to wonder why you ever put it on in the first place. But it’s so full of unbridled maniacal energy it’s hard to dismiss. Some of it’s downright hilarious, like “Chinese Water Torture”. All ringing feedback and drum fills over Kim’s fake Sino-babble, then when it stops, Kim informs the studio: “I think the police have arrived...well, don’t just stand there stoned!” Over the silence he then adds: “Hey: We’re all dead.” The sessionmen must have freaked and bolted the studio behind his back! “Nightrider” is a raving rock out with Fowley barking, panting, choking, spitting, puking, whoa whoa-ing, larynx-strangling all gnarled and psychotic as hell. “Bubble Gum” shows off the only gentle side on “Outrageous” with Kinks-inflected vocals over hard rock and Hammond organ. But the rest of the album journeys further into twisted realms of L.A.-L.S.D.-LA LA land with the nightmarish “Inner Space Discovery”, a feedback and cymbal freakout that marks the beginning of Fowley’s abuse of the studio’s echo chamber starts to get as out of hand on side two’s crossfaded epic, “Up” / “Caught In The Middle” / “Down” as Fowley himself. He really outdoes himself with all the echo, which makes his insane vocal perambulations even crazier. It’s a long and battering bad trip to the last song, “California Hayride” where Fowley’s now left all alone in the studio. But it’s hardly an a cappella moment as he’s now YELLING and chanting his catch phrase of the moment, “We’re rough! We’re tough! We’ve had enough!!!” through echo that processes it into a single distorted signal that has the microphone feeding back at the end as wave upon wave ripples out...Kim Fowley: a fourth dimensional underground animal.

LP - Psychedelic Furs - S/T


Jamie - Permanent Records Chicago

 
$7.99 → Email If Interested LISTEN

"Emerging from the incipient post-punk London scene with a healthy fascination for late-'70s Bowie (and in turn, for his own attraction to Krautrock), the then-sextet kicked up a slightly monochromatic but still attractive storm on their debut. Richard Butler's Thin-White-Duke-after-smoking vocal rasp has a surprising appeal, serving up a wry, slightly detached series of lyrics on life. The members of the core band, meanwhile, had clearly honed their chops well on-stage; Ashton's lead guitar work avoids both wankery and simplicity in favor of a balanced, artistic power. Production mainly comes from Steve Lillywhite, who smartly steers away from the soon-to-be-clich├ęd touches he would bring to U2's early work. "India" is a good example; it has a brooding, quiet beginning with strange telegraphic signals and turns into a brawling rocker without sounding like the Edge or Larry Mullins going off. The record comes off as serious without being self-consciously deep, occasional toe-dipping into humorous aside ("We Love You" has Butler idly listing off things he loves, sometimes with appropriate if sarcastically delivered song quotes: "I'm in love with Frank Sinatra...fly me to the moon..."). "Imitation of Christ" is the most frazzled, with lyrics detailing someone else metaphorically nailing himself up over a light but still strange guitar line. "Wedding Song" is amusingly prescient as one of the first "white rockers go hip-hop" numbers of its kind, along with Blondie's "Rapture," though its inspiration could equally be dub. Ely lays down a pounding funk beat while Butler breaks into a midsong rap no better or worse than most such efforts of the time." - allmusic.com

LP - Sun Ra And The Blues Project - The Sensational Guitars of Dan & Dale: Batman and Robin


Jon - Permanent Records Chicago

 
$29.99 → Email If Interested LISTEN

"No joke -- this album is a little glimpse of heaven. This reviewer has imagined the latter as having (among many things) its own version of Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village, circa 1964-1965, with Fred Neil, Jimi Hendrix, Phil Ochs, Gene Clark, the Serendipity Singers, Art & Paul, Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, and a hundred other acts playing every night, any night; the music on this album makes me think of something like I'd probably hear if I walked in on a Blues Project rehearsal in that celestial sphere. It is the Blues Project (possibly without Al Kooper, who says he didn't make the session, regardless of what the CD and our ears say), with Sun Ra on the Hammond B-3 organ, John Gilmore and Marshall Allen on tenor and alto, respectively, Pat Patrick on bass, and Jimmy Owens and Tom McIntosh on trumpet and trombone. And apart from the first track and the packaging (which probably cost more, for the licensing of the Batman images, than the session did), none of it has anything to do with Batman or comic books. The story is this -- sometime in 1966, producer Tom Wilson persuaded (probably with the offer of some quick bucks) Sun Ra and members of his band, and the members of the Blues Project, to lay down 35 minutes of music for a Batman and Robin album credited to "The Sensational Guitars of Dan & Dale." It was a quickie exploitation effort sponsored by some toy company in New Jersey (where these sessions were cut) intended to sell some dance music for discotheques and parties by cashing in on the craze surrounding the Batman television program. The album, showing the Caped Crusader and his partner swinging down on bat-ropes, has been a denizen of dollar-record bins and nostalgia shows for decades, and just happens to feature some of the hottest musicians in New York City; beyond Sun Ra and his band, there's Danny Kalb, Andy Kulberg, Steve Katz, and Roy Blumenfeld, who at that time was one of the best bands working in the city. Most of side one is attributed to Sun Ra and his band, though Kalb and Katz seem to be all over the place, assuming they're the only guitarists (and it sounds like them), while side two is attributed principally to the Blues Project -- certainly "The Joker Is Wild" is the Blues Project, and if Al Kooper wasn't at these sessions, then Sun Ra turned down considerably on this cut. "Batman and Robin Over the Roofs" features Jimmy Owens prominently, along with Sun Ra and the two guitarists, in the longest jam on this record (which, as a statement of quality, is also one of the best cuts). No, Batman and Robin doesn't match the importance of the Blues Project's own official recordings, or anything that Sun Ra was doing officially, but what a chance to hear these guys kicking back for a half-hour's anonymous blues jamming. Everything here, apart from the Neal Hefti "Batman Theme" is public domain blues built on some familiar material (including Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Bach), one cut, appropriately entitled "The Riddler's Retreat," quotes riffs and phrases from a half-dozen Beatles songs, and another, "The Bat Cave," that's this group's answer to "Green Onions" (and a good answer, too). Along with Sun Ra, who dominates every passage he plays on, Steve Katz and Danny Kalb are the stars here, romping and stomping over everything as they weave around each other, while Gilmore, Allen, and Owens occasionally stepping to the fore, Blumenfeld makes his percussion sound downright tuneful in a few spots, and some anonymous female singers throw out a lyric or two on a pair of cuts, just as a distraction. Andy Kulberg and Pat Patrick alternate the bass chores, and at times they're practically playing additional lead instruments. It's all almost too good to be true, catching the Blues Project when they were still playing together happily -- maybe this isn't the jam they would have wanted preserved 35-plus years later, but neither is it embarrassing, and fans of either Sun Ra or the Blues Project might well want this record just for the sheer strangeness of it. Italy's Universe records has reissued Batman and Robin in gorgeous sound, re-creating the original cover art and making it into a gatefold, with some irrelevant '70s-era Batman panels printed inside. Note: Some of these same tracks, or others out of the same session, were repackaged as horror film-focused albums, which are less well known and have yet to show up on CD." - Allmusic.com

$9.99 → BUY NOW LISTEN

"Deep Distance, the kosmische / kraut flavoured side label to the Great Pop Supplement, open the new year in style with 3 super cool new 10” singles, all dressed up in ace embossed front panel sleeves and tasty new label bags.

Kicking off the trio is the stunning debut from “Slows”,  (a side project for WIRE guitarist Matthew Simms), 2 beautiful side long pieces created on farfisa matador organ with fx pedals which recall the lush, minimal drones and arrangements of the likes of Terry Riley, JD Emmanuel and “Dreamweapon” era Spacemen 3.

Matthew has been a member of Wire since 2010 (playing on 2013’s acclaimed “Change Becomes Us” LP)  and It Hugs Back, having released 3 albums with a new one due for 2015. He was recently invited to contribute to the new Bill Fay album, as well as a soundtrack to the film “Suzanne” by Electrelane’s Verity Susman.

His individual, self taught approach to the guitar, the focus on unusual sounds and tunings and his way of playing within, rather than ‘on top’ of a song has helped him forge his growing reputation.

He is most often to be found in his own Kent countryside studio, ‘The Record Room’  where he has recently mixed the new Chastity Belt record on Hardly Art (Feb 2015) as well as composing and recording music for various Film and TV programmes.

A beautiful record on the eye and ear and limited to a pressing of 300 only… out mid Feb 2015." - Deep Distance

"The second of February’s trio of killer new Deep Distance 10” features Ollie Cherer’s “Rhododendron” project. Having debuted on the label’s “Grasshopper Mind” Record Store Day comp from 2013 and played to bits by the likes of Andrew Weatherall and 6Music, the band return with their debut release proper.

To quote the band themselves: “Tired of the tango, Fed up with fandango? Try magnetic tape, dirty amps, modular synthesizers, improvisation and wild, wild noise.
Fuzzed up south coast motorik minimalism with synths, guitars and space echooooooes…..

“Rhododendron is a nice flower” – Bryan Ferry

Paris Rendezvous is an improvised soundtrack to Claude Lelouch’s  “C'├ętait un rendez-vous”, performed once at a now infamous warehouse/studio party in St Leonards in 2014.

Written, recoded and produced by Darren Morris and Oliver Cherer.

Killer 10” destined to sell out rapid style. To dwell is to miss… ace embossed Deep Distance sleeve inserts over tasty new 10” label bags, in an edition of 300 only." - Deep Distance
 

10in - Bosques - Eomaia Recuerda EP - Import


LIMITED TO 300

 
$9.99 → BUY NOW LISTEN

"The last of February’s ace new Deep Distance represents a debut on vinyl for Argentinian neo-psych, kraut outfit BOSQUES.

The band were formed in 2009, and take their cues from a love of all things psych, drone and kraut flavoured; and the tracks across the EP offer up a killer intro to the bands’ ever revolving vibe and approach; at one point adapting the seminal NEU! groove of opener “Eomaia Recuerda” to the predominantly acoustic, organic motorik “Mis Manos Las Manos” and the prime era Spiritualized like, organ led “Interferencia”.

A beautiful EP, with an idealistic concept of there being no ‘A’ side as such. Should such a thing exist, treat this as something of a treble ‘A’ side…?!

Again, as pleasing on the eye as the ear, the EP features an embossed cover panel and is released as a limited pressing of 300 only on 10” vinyl." - Deep Distance

$39.99 → BUY NOW LISTEN

"Inland Empire's first ever punk rock band "The Reactors," formed in 1978, from the urban city of San Bernardino, CA. They played their own brand of fast, raw, and desperate punk rock in the unlikely urban city from where they were from. The Reactors existed from 1978 until 1982. During that time they released their 7" Meltdown EP and their 12" WW4 LP on their own Nuclear Waste Records label; which included doing their own photos, artwork, layouts and production, etc.

The Reactors lasted through several line-ups. The first Reactors before the 7" EP were Mike Rodriguez, bass; Al Zenno, guitar; Brad Uhl, drums; and Elizabeth "Dash" Frost, vocals. For the 7" EP, the lineup changed when drummer Brad left the band and was replaced by "Throbbin" Rob Vasquez. In early 1980, Al Zenno left the group.

For the WW4 LP the remaining members recruited guitarist Tony Brammel, who eventually went on to form the Sins and later the soul-rock alternative band, the Bell-Rays. The last edition of the Reactors consisted of a three piece: Dash on guitar, Mike on bass and any durmmer they could find.

The Reactors shared bills with many great bands of the time including; X, Fear, Plimsouls at the California Institution for Men (Chino State Prison show), Simpletones, Crowd, Alleycats, Smog Marines, and many more!

Recently, their records have garnered much attention from the ranks of "Killed By Death" punk collectors. Back in the day, their 7" Meltdown EP was released in a rare pressing of 300 copies with two known cover variations which has now become a collector's item of sorts. Their WW4 LP is almost becoming scarce too." - Nuclear Waste Records

Genius and Brutality. Taste and Power. The Torn Light Records has all the gnarly details behind this brain damage inducing slab of misanthropy:

"Mid tempo to sludgy noise rock from Chicago, IL. Rectal Hygienics take their time stomping through 7 tracks of nihilistic, perverse and noise ladened rock. FFO: Rusted Shut, Brainbombs, Twin Stumps and the like.
Featuring ex and current boys of Socially Retarded, Sea of Shit, Hate Basement, Machismo, Abuse Patterns, CSTVT and SHARPTOOTH.
LP comes housed in a screen printed jacket with a fold out poster/lyric sheet. 300 copies one time pressing on black vinyl." - Torn Light Records

Hell Yeah!  Chicago's Rectal Hygienics unleash a platter of punishment in the vein of Twin Stumps, Rusted Shut and Brainbombs as stated above and you know we love us some attitude filled negative noise rock.  Rectal Hygienics are not here to play nice, as waves of feedback and flopping guttural bass riffs and pummeling drum patterns are held at bay by a barking bile filled growl spewing all things unpleasant to say the least.  Originally released as a mega-limited cassette, the RH duders have finally got this on vinyl just in time to never leave your turntable.  This is sure to piss off your neighbors as it is meant to played at the highest of volumes.  Viciously Recommended.
