      Ethno-Illogical Psycho-Radiographies: 352 [949*]: Rubbing Reality the Wrong Way

      Insane people are always sure that they are fine. It is only the sane
      people who are willing to admit that they are crazy.
      * Nora Ephron

      A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?
      * Albert Einstein

      Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness. And
      they live by what they hear.
      Such people become crazy... or they become legend.

      There is no salvation in becoming adapted to a world which is crazy.
      * Henry Miller

      [1] "Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance" on Antilles vinyl, 1983.
      Weirdly psychedelic for the environmentally apocalyptic.
      Koyaanisqatsi in Hopi means crazy life; life in turmoil; life
      disintegrating; life out of balance; a state of life that calls for
      another way of living.

      [2] "Orient: Accident" on Pogus <www.pogus.com>. To hear where music
      went into the future long ago listen to one of the only labels that

      [3] "Mouvement / Slam" on Canal 93 / Mouvement. Everything you
      expected of slam poetry. Hyperbole over subtlety, cudgel over
      feather, fisticuffs over massage.

      [4] "Every thing is Exactly How You Left It" on Spa.rk. By now,
      obscurity is its own cliched genre but it also remains an intriguing
      cellular dialog between surprise and expectation.

      [5] "Strange Days" on Elektra vinyl, 1967. Next year this record will
      be 40 years old! Morrison was poetry for me when I was 15. Horse
      Latitudes was certainly a strange piece to find on a pop/rock record.

      [6] "Get Your Greasy Head off the Sham" on Birdman
      <www.birdmanrecords.com>. What a crazy record. Imagine Chicken
      McNuggets jammed in under the strings of Zappa's golden harp.

      [7] "The Choir Boys with Strings" on PF Mentum <www.pfmentum.com>.
      Yikes, no wonder the asylums are empty, they're all out performing.
      Use Beefheart as a flint rock and this is the spark that flies off.
      But can you start a fire with it

      [8] "Nomad" on No Man's land <www.nomansland-records.de>. Japanese
      post-jazz on a German label.

      [9] "Back to the Roots" on Polydor vinyl. My real introduction to the
      Blues. He is strangely clunkily, confessionally, long-hairedly
      effective as he does what most Brit rockers did not, translate his
      own rich bio into blues confessionals. He is also important as a
      crossroads of many legends and greatsŠ

      [10] "Ingwe" on Indies Records. Interesting label tirelessly pushes
      Eastern european 'new' music with heavy emphasis on Czech Rep. Liner
      notes: "The music is inspired by mythological stories of North
      American indigenous people, the Inuit and old ChinaŠ" Ingwe is 'blue
      hawk' in Xhosa of the Kalahari.

      [11] "Wir Leben Wie Gespenster" on Trikont
      <www..rocket-freudental.de>. Rocket in that great tradition of
      rudimentary punk rock [like Trio] which simplifies everything down
      about 8 notches and comes up sounding fresh, original, punk,
      experimental, kinetic. Always recommended.

      [12] "Pure Pop for Now People" on Columbia [Stiff] 1978[77], vinyl. I
      still think this is one of the great pure pop records. Wasn't the
      original title something like 'Jesus of Cool'? Didn't that get
      censored in the US and didn't it force him to change the title?
      There's nothing greater than whole swaths of a nation or its
      government being scandalized. It makes life worth living. You have to
      feel honored when the US Government gives anything attention and

      [13] "Gochu" on Rank Cologne <kolmrank@...>. The band is just
      beyond peach fuzz and already they've got the hang of Sonic Youth and
      ESP Records post-noise improv non-jazz. Would have been the offspring
      darlings of the Dadaists and/or Futurists. They have their own
      myspace site, BTW. They work in that great tradition [see Pound,
      Ayler, Pynchon, SYŠ] of obscurity being the best revenge. Better than
      pranks, better than punk, better than vandalism. It's poetry and it's
      an iconography of iconoclastic annihilationŠ the phoenix of feedback.

      [14] "Project: Mersh" on SST vinyl, 1985. The original anti-pop speed
      punk metal jazz band for people who read post-modernism; MM avoided
      all the trappings of pop except death and commodified mythification.
      D. Boon died. Did they pioneer the punks in baggy shorts look?

      [15] Great sombre gruesome deep beats Tuvan-Gregorian bass-voiced
      bottom-feeding, scraping static off horns, and a dingy kind of world
      music from a world that exists everywhere in the gutters, sewage
      pipes, frayed power lines of ghettos, barrios and back-hoodsŠ Imagine
      some low-riders [dark glass] scraping metal, delivering Artaud from
      party to party to do stand-up theatre of cruelty stunts. People laugh

      [16] "1939" on Pogus <www.pogus.com>.

      [17] EO comes across as a very entertaining revenge-of-the-wusses,
      prying loose 21st century versions of the Loudon Wainwright III
      school of humor in a Newport folk cabaret where all the drinks are
      unpronounceable and colours you never even imagined.

      Of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.

      * Record collectors' shop faces the music By Robert Plummer , BBC News
      After more than 30 years in business, Europe's biggest second-hand
      record shop is in the throes of a huge closing-down sale.

      Beanos, in the south London suburb of Croydon, sent shockwaves
      through the world of music collecting when it announced in July that
      it was no longer profitable and would have to shut. Founder and
      proprietor David Lashmar thought he would be able to sell all his
      remaining stock - more than one million items - by Christmas. But
      with just a few shopping days left to go, eager punters are still
      thumbing their way through tens of thousands of singles, albums and
      CDsŠ. Beanos' decline comes at a time of rapid change for the music
      industry that has left ordinary consumers in a state of confusion.
      Whether you're buying downloads for your iPod, brand-new CDs from a
      High Street store or rare slabs of second-hand vinyl, no-one seems to
      know any more what is a fair price to charge for music.
      Traditional music chains such as HMV and Virgin have been forced to
      lower their prices in order to compete with supermarkets, who now
      account for more than a quarter of all CD sales in the UK.

      "CDs were a novelty when they first came out, 14 or 15 years ago.
      They were kept artificially high in price and there was a big
      differential between manufacturing costs and retail costs. Gradually
      a price war started and CDs became more and more affordable. Big
      companies like CBS started slashing prices on their major artists.
      You can buy a Springsteen or Dylan CD for £4.99 now, so why come to a
      second-hand shop? That's really what started pulling the rug from
      under our feetŠ If you want to buy obscure Trojan reggae singles, you
      can get them on a very good triple CD box set for a tenner, whereas
      one of those Trojan singles could cost you 200 quid. So that's where
      the market went for those. Whatever the genre - be it rock 'n' roll
      or pop, whatever you like - people have done their research and come
      out with excellent compilations, which makes it much more affordable.
      That's taken the collectability out of that vinyl."

      o Amsterdam's mayor Job Cohen finished second in the voting for World
      Mayor 2006. Interesting guy of amazing unflappable almost zen-like
      calm in a crazy city. He finished 5,000 behind the winner, the mayor
      of Melbourne.

      o Murders in Netherlands keeps sinking. Even though the perception
      [as it seems to be worldwide] is that crime and violence are getting
      worse. This is mainly due to the Internet and one's ability to see
      suffering all over the world and locally in an instant. It is also
      due to the nostalgic old timers who are still coming up with those
      amazing bromides about how it used to be when everyone trusted each
      other, nobody locked their doors and all the neighbors knew each
      other and watched each other's kids. One wander through the art
      and/or history museums and you immediately get a new view. People
      used to be MUCH crueler - my daughter loves all those old paintings
      from the times of Bosch and Breugel for instance. 16 million people
      about 170 murders for 2006. 30 less than 2005, while in the 1990s
      there was an avergae of 250 annually.

      o Yahoo recently announced that Britney Spears is the most popular
      search term for 2006. Paris Hilton ended 5th with Shakira [a
      yodeler!] 3rd. But who was 2nd? Jesus? Osama? Hussein? This report
      came out before the hanging of Saddam, which I guess would have been
      number one event searched. But the number one event searched was
      Steve Irwin's [TV croc hunter] death and the death of Anna Nicole
      Smith's son. Does this say something about Yahoo users?

      o While in the US doing initial filming for the yodel docu I got to
      see a lot of hotel room TV and catch up with newspaper and radio
      news. Being away for some 10 years it all sounds weirdly exotic to
      me. And if this news story had appeared in Haiti it would have seemed
      stranger than the fact that it comes from Florida. There Jeb Bush,
      the governor, signed into law a measure known as the 'stand your
      ground' bill lets people carry and use guns or other methods of
      deadly force to defend themselves or their families in public places
      like BARS! You don't have to attempt to flee first. This is an
      extension of the concealed weapons act [Florida was a forerunner] and
      the 'castle doctrine' [ditto] which allows citizens to defend their
      homes with deadly force. They catered to the fears magnified by the
      obsession with victims' rights [not that they shouldn't have them!
      But they shouldn't be manipulated either to feed paranoia and gun
      sales] Š meanwhile, Florida fries more criminals than any other and
      yet Florida continues to have one of the nation's highest state crime
