"They fuck you up, your mum and dad. / They may not mean to, but they do. /
They fill you with faults they had / And add some extra, just for you."
o Philip Larkin, "This Be The Verse"
 "No Type Sampler" on No Type <www.notype.com>. Beautiful Wolfgang
"Gas" Voigt-like trance-loops that remind me also of Rapoon. Like
Gas, Zoviet France, Rapoon I can play these kinds of mesmerizing and
meditative loops over and over. I did just that, playing this lilting
cut some 50 times on repeat.
 "Music Works 84" on SOCAN. Sound-magazine collection of
interesting sound, music, and poetic incursions into the forefront of
what is happening in North America - mostly focused on Canadian
experimentation. Composer LeBaron creates and interesting
investigation of sounds from the South brought north, scraped from
the banks of the Mississippi. Employs native voices and singers
 Ez3kiel "Barbary" on Jarring Effects / PIAS. Obssd is Ez3kiel vs
Black Sifichi, not on this CD. The collection is a sturdy
amalgamation of various genres including punky dub, noisy World
music, soulful drum & bassic material that engages and confronts.
 "In Kharm's Way" on Nadine. The poetry of Daniil Kharms on this
hand-produced menacing-beautiful package of poetry booklet and CD.
Featuring the always engaging vocals of that fast-tongued saxophonic
wordsmith, Ted Milton with that magical simplicity that defined and
made Blurt such a great cross between punk, funk and no wave in the
mid-80s. Here poesie plus drum and bass.
 Psychedelic low-fi white trash hipster jive.
 "Virgin Fugs" On ESP vinyl. Low-fi meets high ideals through the
soul of William Blake and the spleen of Allen Ginsberg. The ultimate
Groucho-Marxist garage-less band.
 "Incomplete Directions" on Knitting Factory
<www.knittingfactory.com>. Effective straddling of bookwormly
erudition and street shuffling poesie.
 "In With the Out Crowd" on Mouth Almighty /Mercury. From the man
who would be Lord Buckley if he wasn't busy being himself and the
spoken perf world's ultimate MC. Check out his Bowery Poetry Club
when in Manhattan.
 "15 Trax" on CDR, personal home recordings and other stuff. Give
Bukowski some speed and pastis and put him on a bike with soft tires
 "No Fridge" Nice fusion of North African music and western
studio sounds. Black Sifichi is Ken Nordine meets Ken Rexroth on a
North African holiday in the 20th arrondisement of Paris chatting
with Brion Gysin.
 "Forewarning the 21st Century" on Bootburn. A live performance
by Steven Jesse Bernstein & RV. A kind of 60s style ESP disc of jazz
noise and mad poesie.
 "The Grand Delusion" The Tape Beatles are to sound what John
Heartfield was to politically savage collage. Subliminal as a
laughing hatchet taken to all symbols of nationalistic hypocrisy.
 "The Life & Hazardous Time of Charles Bukowski" on
Enlightenment/Chrome Dreams. With music by Magic Dragon. Curious
record that reveals intimate aspects of Bukowski that might not come
through if it was mere drunken performance although the record does
smell like a farmer milking a dead cow.
 "Ten" on Sabotage <www.sabotage.at>. A curious mini-CD that
gives a quick if uneven and unsatisfying snapshot of some current
goings-on in inventive music circles. The outstanding cut is Norscq
vs Sifichi's "Open" which seems to use anal penetration as a metaphor
in a post-hyper John Giorno manner. Sinister to the point of nervous
 "Far In, Far Out" on Tzadik. Speaking in tongues, the tongues of
the anxious, the stressed, the all-knowing, the burdens of knowing a
lot of too much all comes to a head in this inspired spiritual scat
by one of the best vocalists working in any genre.
 "Imp Rovi Sors" on Kontrans. If god ever needs to bewilder his
flock he will hire Blonk & co. to head off the rabble at the gates to
heaven. Inspired meta-language for a new start. Jazz tongues for the
Dr. Seuss set.
 "Them Poems" on Vee Jay vinyl, 1964. Still NOT rereleased.
Genius folk songs that made MW a hit with the Kingston Trio Smothers
Brothers set in the early 60s. Somewhere between wacked genius
ditties and haiku done James Thurber style [?] Profiled in my yodel
 "Analogue Smoque" on Pogus <www.pogus.com> is a strange double
disc of spoken word and freeform soundscaping. The narrator is
something of a prim fantabulist whose use of language spins a
wonderful aura of other worlds and strange perceptions in an even
stranger world. Silverton claims an interest in theosophy, and
"cryptorchidistics, i.e., state of non-descent." Hamilton is a
30-year vet of electronic music and proffers something called
"present-time listening" while Margolis is a man of many wigs, having
run Sound of Pig, a cassette label devoted to adventurous music into
the sky. He describes his music as "sound fingerpainting."
 "Highway One" on Warner Brothers vinyl. Mellow commercialized
kitsch-hippie stuff all in an easy-listening format.
 "To Look North" on Isis Arts / NRFTA / BBC. A naughty mixer
sneaks into England's "Northern Region Film and Television Archive"
for some lucid sound texts and some serious mayhem.
"Funny how hard it is to be alone / I could spend half my evenings,
if I wanted, /
Holding a glass of washing sherry"
o Philip Larkin, "Vers de Société"*
[*] Having not read much poetry and having stopped writing it in the
early 1990s in part as a reaction of exasperation against the
MTV/Poetry Slammification of poetry. In mid-1990s NY EVERYone was
suddenly a spoken wordist And everyone, all 10,000 of us were vying
for the 2 record contracts Anyway, this show on the BBC called "Love
Again" a dramatization of the life of Larkin made me believe in
poetry a little again. He also wrote lucid impassioned jazz criticism
