      "I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm
      frightened of the old ones."
      o John Cage (1912 - 1992)

      [1] "Great Vintage: vol. 2" on On-U <www.onusound.co.uk>. One of the
      most important multi-purpose meta-dub and percussion ensembles of the
      past 20 years.

      [2] "The Drum is Everything" on Phonogram vinyl. Versatile and
      still-dynamic-sounding Wonder Bread soul. The more you look/listen to
      that late 70s-early 80s period the more vital it sounds.

      [3] "Stop the Confusion (Global Interference)" on Echo Beach
      <www.echobeach.de>. On the new rerelease of KLB, with liner notes by
      yrs [un]truly, KLB again shows why he was a percussion paradigm
      shattering guy behind the skins throughout the 80s.

      [4] "Voodoo Trance Music: Ritual Drums of Haiti" on Lyrichord. Liner
      notes: "Drums are among the central symbols of Haitian
      voodoo,,,attempts to suppress voodoo often begin with the banning of
      drumming. DrummingŠ through a combination of rhythms played [on] iron
      bell, sticks, middle and master drum, the musicians are able to bring
      on possession tranceŠ This is often achieved by the master drummer's
      manipulation of rhythm and meter, including powerful rhythmic
      disruptions known as casses."

      [5] "Second Edition" on Island vinyl, 1979. One of the great
      percussion driven paradigm-shattering discs of the post-punk era.
      Martin Atkins on drums and Jah Wobble on bass.

      [6] "Talking Drum" on Pogus <www.pogus.com> "Binaural motion
      recordings composed as a dialogue of distances. Live recordings of
      music for electronic network music ensemble juxtaposed with location
      recordings of traditional music and environmental soundscapes made in
      Bali, the Philippines, Turkey, Europe, Cuba and America 1991-99."
      Incredibly interesting record that sounds warmer and more
      organic/dynamic than the press release description.

      [7] " World 2004" on <www.wrasserecords.com>. Non-patronizing world
      music not afraid to be non-pure and folksy. Good antidote to the easy
      listening of some Putumayo collections.

      [8] "My Bongo" on pf Mentum <www.pfmentum.com>. Clever and agile
      percussion that seems to sample every style and hits just about
      everything that might offer percussive possibilities. This one
      continues to grow on me Š

      [9] "Crammed Global Soundclash 1980-89: Part One - World Fusion" on
      Crammed <crammed@...>. amazingly prescient and adventurous
      label presents a dj-segue-style mix of some of their great shorter

      [10] "Bass, Sweat & Tears" on Interchill <www.interchill.com>. Sent
      to me by WTM-Paris. Very nice welding of dub, ethno-ambiences and
      so-called nu-beat, which was "inspired by native cultures [in]
      Burkina Faso, Iran, Pakistan, N. India, Papua New Guinea, the Amazon,
      Italy & Spain."

      [11] on Nonesuch. Hifalutin failure with some stand out trax.
      Includes Coldcut, Howie B., andrea Parker, Tranquility Bass,
      Mantronik, D*Note, DJ Spooky & Ken Is

      [12] "2-3-4 " on Impulse/GRP. Great dynamic and supple drummer who
      lived by the maxim "Learn your instrument and then forget about

      [13] "But Beautiful" on Evidence. LS has played with Blood Sweat &
      Tears & with Gil Evans. With solo drumming by Elvin Jones.

      [14] "L'autre Nuit" on Lytch <www.multimania.com/prikos> Dynamic
      collaboration of Phil Von of Von Magnet who brings his industrial
      flamenco to Morocco. Very very nice.

      [15] "1973-Recon" is a truly revealing title as DJ Hype plunders old
      beats to some unusual and uneasy swoozy effect. Like a chopshop where
      you go in with a Ford Pinto and come out with a vintage Citroen DS.

      [16] "Totem" on Raven. It has a muted, gauzy new age feel but somehow
      the dynamic percussion makes you forget all that.

      o I remember riding back on the subway to Queens [one stop short of
      hell] during rush hour from my Manhattan job as foot messenger
      1978-81 and seeing that great street drummer with shoe polish shiny
      hair who has a cameo in "Taxi Driver". There he'd be serenading or
      annoying the suits and drones with his hyper-kinetic drumming,
      drumming on subway car glass, metal, floor, ceiling, lighting, on his
      own body, totally absorbed when he would suddenly stop and call out
      "Buddy Rich". More drumming and "Gene Krupa."

      o I find my body has some affinity for drumming, I have been drumming
      aimlessly, nervously, unconsciously for years and years but
      eventually whatever beat I have started with turns into a syncopated
      and quite odd beat. It is only in the last few years that the source
      of this beat has become clear: it is my father, something he used to
      tap out on hard surfaces. And so it is an odd vestige - learned or
      genetic - a kind of percussive watermark that I am tagged withŠ
