 "Carré de Sable" on Empreintes Digitales <www.actuellecd.com> A
schizoidal and very satisfying copllection of works that waver
between ponderous-speculative and curious-fun.
 "5 + 1" on Small Axe is a FR/UK dubby and ornery Massive Attack /
Portisheadish presentation of beats, style and lyrical content. The
birth of sinister and festering cool.
 One of the great raconteurs of post-modern adventures in a world
lost to art-speak. His voice here is like Mose Allison in a Soho art
gallery with one too many cheap wine spritzers.
 "Little Annie & the Legally Jammin'" on Italic <www.italic.de>. I
have had Annie on my radio show, I have dj-ed for her in a
Williamsburg Mustard Factory, have ridden in a car and confessed to
having once liked Dan Fogelberg on our way up to Westchester. She is
one of the great meeting points of Carmen McRae, Lili Marleen and
dub, sounding like a rejuvenated and triumphant Warhol sidebar.
 "Liederen & Ballades 1" on Kollektief Internationale Nieuwe Scene
vinyl. Imagine Mad Dogs & Englishmen singing revolutionary 60s-style
Dario Fo songs in Belgian/Dutch. Charmingly rousing. Rosy-cheeked
hopefulness. Creative indignity
 "Combustion Remix EP" on Bluenote <www.bluenote.net> Creative
post-lounge jazz remixed for maximum EKG effect.
 "In Search of Excellounge" on Moving Coil Music
>. Cool is cool and here they replicate St.
Germain sound. Buoyant virtual post-hysteria jazz-downbeat.
 "Jo-Delay" on The Man Cable <www.alpendub.net>. A deliriously
heady and earnest mix of dub and yodeling. This would seem to be
right up my eustachian tube and yes, you are right. This is one of
the best releases of 2004 and they don't even have a label yet. I
heard them in early December on NPR at a precise and
synchronicity-charmed time when there was supposed to be a segment on
NPR about my yodeling book. Well, you can imagine my pleasant
surprise at discovering this most unusual and yet organic of fusions
- yodeling and dub!
 "Gnawa N Joum Experience" on boumbaclash <www.boumbaclash.com>.
brilliant synthesis of world musics and global anxieties in a savvy
dubby trip hop meets afro-arab-pop. Very interesting.
 "Preservation Act 1" on RCA, 1973 vinyl. Charming pop socialism.
Ray Davies never got his proper lyrical due as Brittainia's Phil Ochs.
 "Stop the Confusion (Global Interference)" on Echo Beach. Future
release of vintage KL trax. He tore up the skins, redrew the paradigm
with drum stix dipped in bodily fluids. He made drums sound like a
critique of the logic of war
 "Duplex" on Shitkatapult is the sound of Buddhist bells inside
the exploded of tech gadgets about to go the route of sabotage. There
is melody and a moment of happy face confrontation as we flee the
flood of information rain, in fact there are survival tactics that
involve taking the glitch and dissonance and making it into a drum n
bass meets flamenco affair. I am somehow reminded of what Durruti
Cloumn or Sylvain Chauveau would sound like in a studio with all the
wires and inputs and outputs exposed to the corrosive effects of
humidity, mold and rust.
 "Sub Pop 9: 4 countries 14 Cities" on Sub Pop Cassettes. Great
early grungy stuff back when noise was still fun and less conceptual.
Inept psychedelia from DC band VM. Charmingly awkward. While
Egoslavia has one of the best band names ever. They never lived up to
the name nor their post-Bush-Tetras atonal hype also from DC.
 "40 Greatest Country Hits" on Black Tulip. Among the schlock
some real gems.
 "Amazing Thrift" on Ooh Ooh Music cassettes, early 1980s.
Selection of kitsch-ripe pieces including this often replayed piece
of earnest generation gap dialectic. Was it genuine paternal angst or
was it always tongue-in-cheeky?
 "Country Club" on RCA vinyl. One of the funnier country stars. From Ohio.
 "Demo / Remixes" on personal CDR from JV
>. Interesting boomboom remixes of sped-up
jodeling and schmaltzy old-style Tirolean kitsch in a house-party
atmosphere. She has a great spirit and yodels in the style of Olga
Lowina Lives outside Amsterdam and is available for performances and
o On Saturday 29th May there will be a benefit for Leiden's
free/pirate radio station, Koekoeroe Reedio
> at Vrankrijk,
Spuisraat in the centrum of Amsterdam. During the evening there will
be a Vrije [free] Radio debate. Meanwhile, Radio Tonka
> of The Hague was recently stormed by the
radio police. Equipment was taken and Tonka remains off the air. All
is eerily still at Patapoe. Equipment problems, money shortages,
squabbles with asocial egotist DJs who think it is cool to be totally
selfish and self-promoting as the already injured and fragile
equipment takes another beating. We are down but nowhere near out! We
continue to broadcast sometimes with as little as 2 or 3 inputs
[making smooth segues and programming difficult] - recently NO
turntables - and yet it all remains fun during wartime.

o W's SECOND TERM [via Eddie le Bois]
by Robert B. Reich [Professor and Secretary of Labor during Clinton's
1st term and no radical by any measure] (The American Prospect /
Musings about a second Bush term typically assume four years of the
same right-wing policies we've had to date. But it'd likely be far
worse. So far, the Bush administration has had to govern with the
expectation of facing American voters again in 2004. But suppose
George W. Bush wins a second term. The constraint of a re-election
contest will be gone
A friend who specializes in foreign policy and hobnobs with
subcabinet officials in the Defense and State Departments told me
that the only thing that's stopped the Bushies from storming into
Iran and North Korea is the upcoming election. If Bush is re-elected,
"(Dick) Cheney and (Donald) Rumsfeld are out of the box," he said.
"They'll take Bush's re-election as a mandate to wage the 'war of
terror' everywhere and anywhere."
The second term's defense team will be even harder line than the
current one. Colin Powell will go. Condoleezza Rice will take over at
the State Department. Rumsfeld will consolidate power as the
president's national-security advisor. Paul Wolfowitz will run the
Defense Department. Domestic policy will swing further right. A
re-election would strengthen the White House's hand on issues that
even many congressional Republicans have had a hard time accepting,
such as the assault on civil liberties. Bush will seek to push
"Patriot II" through Congress, giving the Justice Department and the
FBI powers to inspect mail, and examine personal medical records,
insurance claims, and bank accounts.
Right-wing Evangelicals will solidify their control over the
departments of Justice, Education, and Health and Human Services -
curtailing abortions, putting federal funds into the hands of private
religious groups, pushing prayer in the public schools, and promoting
Meanwhile, the few shards of regulation still protecting the
environment and the safety of American workers will be eliminated.
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor will surely step down from the Supreme
Court, possibly joined by at least one other Jurist, opening the way
for the white House to nominate a series of right-wing justices,
[and] Bush may well nominate Antonin Scalia for the top slot -
opening the way for Scalia and Clarence Thomas to dominate the Court.
Such a court will curtail abortion rights, whittle down the Fourth
and Fifth amendments, end all affirmative action, and eliminate much
of what's left of the barrier between church and state.
Karl Rove and Tom DeLay, meanwhile, will have four more years to
fulfill their goal of transforming American democracy into a
one-party state. Congressional redistricting across the nation will
make Texas' recent antics seem a model of democratic deliberation.
Automated voting machines will be easily rigged, with no paper trails
to document abuses Finally, the Federal Communications Commission
will allow three or four giant media empires - all tightly connected
by the Republican Party - to consolidate their ownership over all
television and radio broadcasting.
Nothing is more dangerous to a republic than fanatics unconstrained
by democratic politics. Yet in a second term of this administration,
that's exactly what we'll have.
