For in the final analysis, our most basic common link, is that we all
inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air,
we all cherish our children's futures, and we are all mortal.
* John F. Kennedy, Speech in June 1963
"He didn't even have the satisfaction of being killed for civil
rights . . . . It's ó it had to be some silly little Communist."
* Jackie Kennedy, after hearing a "leftist" had been arrested for her
I didn't shoot anyone, I'm just a patsy.
* Lee Harvey Oswald
"Gentlemen, I want to tell the truth, but I cannot tell it here. If
you want a fair shake out of me, you have to take me to Washington...
Well, you won't see me again. I tell you that a whole new form of
government is going to
take over the country, and I know I won't live to see you another time..."
* Jack Ruby, who shot Oswald, talking before the Warren Commission
The American Dream has run out of gas. The car has stopped. It no
longer supplies the world with its images, its dreams,
its fantasies. No more. It's over. It supplies the world with its
the Kennedy assassination, Watergate, Vietnam...

 A bit of a deconstruct of anarchy as pop music. The Sex Munks
were ex-bank robbers, a member of the Symbionese Liberation Army, a
defrocked priest who advocated LSD as a means to reach god, and
Subara who supplies most of the voices using helium-altered falsetto.
Playing the cut was meant to at least compliment if not tweak the
show before me with its decided mono-retro-punk theme.
 "V3" on Cronica <www.cronicaelectronica.org>. Minimal and yet
expressive electronica. A thin vibrant veil shrouds our discontent
with a filagree of bio-electricity.
 "Excess of Speech" on Extreme, 1992. Minimal soundtracks for
non-existent movies. This cut is a great point by point retelling of
what REALLY happened during the Cuban Missile Crisis, which, of
course, led to the eventual the far right hawks' disappointment with
JFK because of his wimpy appeasement efforts toward both Russia and
Cuba, which further led to their suspicions that he may not cooperate
in their anti-commie efforts.
 "Electric Ladyland" on Reprise vinyl. "And on he walked until
after crowning Ethel the dog Only Qeen of Ears, the sky cracked wide
open and split many of his brothers' and sisters' heads all over the
world apart at approximately the same time 'That's law and order,'
said the Border Guard" Hendrix from the liner notes.
 "Tokyozone Musiques" on Tokyozone <wwwtokyo.zone.org>, a
French-Japanese collaboration that sounds electronically
simultaneously pleasant and extreme. Exploration for exploration's
sake is mitigated by near harmonious and trance scapes that allow the
listener to glean some melodic pleasure out of the abstraction.
Includes Japanese Progressive Form minimal electronica pioneers and
some French technauts like the excellent veteran Jac Berrocal.
 "HADA RAYKOUM/ RAI KING OF ALGERIA" on Triple Earth, 1985. First
Rai album to go international in 1987. "Before rai there was poetry,"
Khaled Hadj Brahim [29 February 1960, Sidi-el-Houri, Algeria] once
noted. "In wahrani, we didn't talk about chicks or drink alcohol. To
describe love, we talked about a pigeon. I say things directly - I
drink alcohol; I love a woman; I am suffering." Born the son of a
policeman in Oran around 1960, Khaled Hadj Brahim quickly turned to
music, dropping out of school, and singing and playing accordion at
weddings and recording his first single at age 16. By the mid-80s,
Cheb [meaning 'youth' in Arab, later dropped when he got older]
Khaled had hits like the incredible pop song "Hada Raykoum" ("So That
is What You Desire" / 1985). This alarmed Islamic conservatives
because it moved people away from spirituality or at least the
militant control over what spirituality was to entail - a god-fearing
people ready to be manipulated by religious leaders. With lyrics
like, "Hey, Mama, your daughter wants me" he quickly won the dubious
honor of being the recipient of death threats and became the subject
of many heated discussions among the young and in the press. After
several serious fundamentalist threats against him and his family, he
settled in France.
His early influences were Arab musicians with the trance-dance
rhythms. But he was also influenced by greats from the colonial
empire of France. He loved Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour and Jacques
Brel. He broke through in 1985 and quickly became known as "The King
of Rai". "Kutche" was Khaled's first European recording. Produced in
collaboration with Safy Boutella, it introduced a more sophisticated
sound, incorporating elements of funk, jazz and reggae. The album
rai/rock/electro funk fusion album "Khaled" producsed by Don Was sold
over 100,000 copies in 1992, and contained the hit, "Didi" went
worldwide [not the US] even producing a Hindi version for India. The
follow up, "N'ssi N'ssi" in 1993, was used as the soundtrack for the
film "1-2-3 Soleil" and earned him the Caesar Prize for best
soundtrack in France. Khaled continues to produce masterful Arab pop
with western influences. His "N`SSI N`SSI" Barclay, 1993 was again
produced by Was/Not Was' Don Was. Khaled's warm voice gets trumped up
with some punched up rhythms mixed with lush strings, modern jazz
elements and funk. Was compares the highly charged and seductive
magic of Khaled to that of Elvis in his ability to win over
audiences. His charm had a similar effect on Middle Eastern youth in
the mid-80s especially in Algeria and Oman but later in Paris as
well. "Sahra"  recorded in Jamaica by producer Clive Hunt and
local musicians such as Dean Fraser and the I-Threes, he showed the
natural extrapolations of rai with reggae.
 In 1987, I produced my first lengthy choppy raw sound bite piece
on the death of JFK, perhaps one of the single most important events
in recent history - yes, it indirectly led the US onto the path it
has now careened, one of self-doubt [a national crisis of faith], the
hiding of that self-doubt behind a blind and monolithic belligerence,
the further swing to the right [not that JFK was a lefty's wet dream]
but he seemed to be an impediment to the fast-tracking power format
of those attracted to dictatorship. Consolidation of power and a
swing to the extreme right has been a result. Over 70% of the
population believe there was a conspiracy [an many believe that the
FBI and/or CIA, and/or organized crime were involved but this same
70% lives in a kind of state of amnesia exacerbated by severe
cognitive dissonance having had little problem electing men that have
swung the US ever further away from what the [landed gentry] founding
fathers had intended
 great single using basic cut and paste technology to produce one
of the first educative-dance-sample numbers. Pure genius in the same
vein as Negativeland.
 "Low Tide Digitals" on ECM <www.ecmrecords.com> Excellent
electronic minimalist soporifics. Necessary to steady increasing
anxiety when one actually contemplates the full picture of past and
 "The Blue Mask" on RCA vinyl 1981. "I dreamed I was the
president of these United States / I dreamed that I was young and
smart and it was not a waste / I dreamed that there was a point to
life and to the human race / I dreamed that I could somehow
comprehend that someone shot him in the face."
 "Ape to Angel" on Pitchblack <www.pitchblack.co.nz> is dub
streamlined and polished so that it's humanity has been wittled away
but somehow this does not matter. PB like Zion Train produce dub to
send out into outer space to lure other beings into our midst.
Precise and trance-effective.
 "The Missing Two Weeks (Covert Dubs)" on Echo Beach
<www.echobeach.de>. Some of the most unassumingly beautiful and
complex new dub style using historical samples here to pay tribute to
the dath of JFK. Definitely top-notch highly recommended dub, both
mellifluous and pushing some kind of seductive envelope.
 "Virgin Fugs" on ESP vinyl 1965. You can't beat these Groucho
Marxists for satirical excellence and political critique. Groucho
Marx meets Woody Guthrie in a downtown coffeehouse.
 Always a second place finisher to Dylan, he was gifted and
earnest but wanted to be Elvis and Dylan at the same time. His lack
of over the top fame certainly must have had an effect on his
 "This is What You Want" on Virgin, 1984. I liked this disc a lot
at the time and it holds up but not as sturdily as earlier PiL. I
gave up after hearing Lydon begin to use his band more and more as
some backing group willing to incorporate the most cliched heavy
metal mannerisms. I continue to be amused and hopeful about herr
Lydon: "This is what you want / This is what you get / This is what
you want / This is what you get / This is what you want / This is
what you get (repeat) Here now / Night light / Windows / Waiting /
Weakness / Waiting / Silent Here now / Ending / One life / One
 "In God We Trust, Inc." on Alternative Tentacles. "All religions
make we wanna throw up / All religions make me sick / All religions
make me wanna throw up / All religions suck"
 "The Essential Leonard Cohen" on Columbia, 2002. "From the wars
against disorder, / From the sirens night and day, / From the fires
of the homeless, / From the ashes of the gay: / Democracy is coming
to the U.S.A. / It's coming from the sorrow in the street, / The
holy places where the races meet; / From the homicidal bitchin' /
That goes down in every kitchen / To determine who will serve and who
will eat. / From the wells of disappointment / Where the women kneel
to pray / For the grace of God in the desert here / And the desert
far away: / Democracy is coming to the U.S.A."
 "They murdered my husband"
 "Obliteration percussion Quartet" on Dutz 5594. Pleasant,
spritely, surprising, cacaphonous, dynamic and inventive percussion.
 My ex-wife used to sing Nina Hagen, Serge Gainsbourg, and Star
Sister in the shower. Of course, JFK and Marilyn is a natural subject
for endless speculation Whatever else can be said, JFK at least had
better taste than all of the other politicians caught with their
hands fondling moist panty linings. If you are going to use power to
seduce, Herr Clinton, then at least have the good taste and sense of
opportunity to shoot high.
 "Modern Wild Dub: Dread Meets Disco Punk Rocker Downtown" on
Echo Beach <www.echobeach.de>. With liner notes by Mark Stewart.
Great shambling clash of forces. Trickery of mind and taste,
upsettery of style and haste. This is one of the great records of the
year. Youngsters mash up the palace right near the nerves in your
o KENNEDY: CONSPIRACY BEYOND COINCIDENCE
By Bart Plantenga [Appeared in Lowest Common Denominator, WFMU's
program guide, Winter/spring 1988, p. 18 and 55]
The Warren Commission, the official body entrusted to investigate the
assassination of President Kennedy, set out to prove their own
pre-conceived conclusion: that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone crazed
gunman. The Commission felt, perhaps, that the notion of conspiracy
would have been too cataclysmic for America to weather. Thus,
somewhat unwittingly, they played into the hands of the conspirators.
In its quest to drain the, event of hysteria and political paranoia,
the Commission was forced to overlook and distort valuable evidence.
This led to the formulation of the desperately absurd Single Builet
Oswald, positioned behind and above the motorcade in the book
depository, could only have fired and hit the motorcade twice in the
documented elapsed time. Thus, the Warren Commission had one bullet
passing through the bones and flesh of Kennedy and Texas Governor
Connally Rve times without suffering any distortion itself. This was
the same bullet that made a mid-air ninety-degree turn before
entering Connally. The "magic" bullet stands at the crux of the
absurdity between the convoluted official explanation and the
contrariness of the facts.
Fact: Oswald was a very poor shot, and a was using an old and
innaccurate rifle with an inoperable scope. Fact: ballistics and
acoustics experts discerned 3 to 4 s of it shots. Fact: marksmen with
the best rifles could not duplicate Oswald's "performance" in
re-enactments - even with the target standing still! Fact: the
Zapruder film corroborates countless witness' testimony that JFK's
brains were blown out the BACK of his head. That's why a motorcycle
policeman following the motorcade was splattered with brain matter,
which logically implied a gunman positioned to the FRONT. The "magic"
bullet was meant to counteract the devastating and disturbing facts
that strongly implied conspiracy, a conspiracy that could have
severely undermined the people's perception of their own government's
Unauthorized surgery was performed on the CORPSE of Kennedy en route
from Dallas to Washington which is why the Washington autopsy differs
so greatly from Dallas'. Bullet trajectories were altered and exit
wounds became entrance wounds. This enabled the plotters to hoodwink
the Commission (who saw only SKETCHES of the wounds -NO PHOTOS!) and
make the Single Bullet Theory feasible. This surgery enabled
attention to be deflected from the grassy knoll gunmen to that of the
book depository scenario. Despite the fact that the grassy knoll, to
the right and front of the motorcade at the moment of the shots, is
where over 50 witnesses (all but ignored by the Commission) saw or
heard evidence of shots. Eighteen of these contradictory witnesses
died within several years of the assassination. Twelve violently!
The statistical probability of this happening was estimated at well
over a TRILLION to one! A major ploy of those actually responsible
was to associate Oswald with Russia, leftist groups, and Cuba. There
was his well-documented "defection" to Russia and the well published
altered photos of him toting his rifle and radical literature. Then
there were his documented protests on behalf of a pro-Cuban group
which had the same New Orleans address as Mob-CIA operatives who were
plotting to re-invade Cuba. Some of these highly visible ploys
failed. Both Russia and Cuba denied him permanent residency. All this
evidence was tailored to fit the leftist-Commie-Cuban gunman scenario
which was employed in an attempt to topple the Castro government via
a wave of Anti-Cuban sentiment and collective American patriotic
rage. When, in a post-assassination press conference, the Dallas DA
implied that right wing extremists might be involved he was quickly
"corrected" by one Jack Ruby, posing as a reporter. But this
POLITICAL scenario failed to coalesce when the Commission went for
the more innocuous crazed lone gunman package. The conspirators DID
man to deflect the heat by providing the commission with the neatly
packaged Oswald solution. And when Oswald began to sing his "patsy"
tune, he got his from Jack Ruby, stripjoint owner and to Mobsters,
Teamsters and Dallas cops. With the designated fall guy silenced, the
mob quickly offered to defend Ruby. Who stood to gain? The Mob, The
CIA, the FBI, the Teamsters, Army Intelligence and Anti-Castroite
leftovers from the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. Each had their gripes
and motivations. Each, in their own way, needed to avenge the heat
JFK and RFK were applying, forcing each group into desperate corners.
Each interest group was seeking to recoup monetary losses, their
power and secrecy that the Kennedy brothers were intent on
controlling. The Mob wanted their lucrative casinos in Cuba back. The
CIA, in a fit of twisted patriotism, wanted to avenge the Bay Of Pigs
failure and reassert its influence over foreign policy. The invasion
was bring orchestrated by none other than Nixon "plumber" E. Howard
Hunt, a virulent Kennedy hater. But this was not to be. More and more
it seemed that the Kennedy Brothers were intent on running contrary
to the interests of the involved conspirators, all of whom could have
boon involved in the assassination through a complex network of
overlapping and mutually beneficial motives.
Kennedy riled them all by singing a tune of conciliation and peace
with both Russia and Cuba. He reviled the CIA for their continued
attempts to poison Castro and for assassinating President Diem in
South Vietnam behind his back. He fired CIA head Dulles, calling for
restrictions on the CIA and urging FBI and CIA accountability, which
led J. Edgar Hoover to jealously try to undo JFK's efforts.
JFK met with DeGaulle to discuss backing out of Nam. Peace there
threatened ail the principles involved. No more S.E. Asia heroin
dollars for the ClA-Mob-Army. No hope for Mob casinos in Cuba. JFK
and RFK were hotly pursuing the Mob's siphoning of the Teamster
Pension Fund. The Mob was reeling from indictments and prosecutions.
They called for JFK's death. Teamster boss Hoffa was indicted three
times and was going to trial, as were several Cuban-involved Mobsters
near the time of the shooting.
After JFK's death, pursuit of the Mob, and CIA/FBI accountability
dramatically slackened. In '72 Nixon pardoned jailbird Hoffa in
exchange for Teamster campaign contributions. In '73 E. Howard Hunt
was caught up in Watergate and threatened to blow Nixon's cover if he
didn't get an adequate defense fund. Hunt threatened, "The Watergate
bugging is only one of a number of highly illegal conspiracies
engaged in by one or more of the defendants at the request of White
House officials. These undisclosed crimes can be proved." Nixon
nervously warned John Dean and John Haldeman that Hunt "might blow
the whistle." Ad infinauseum. Want more? Check out "They've Killed
The President" by Robert Sam Anson.
