the beginning of time or 20 years ago at WFMU [NY], Radio Libertaire
[Paris], and Radio 100 & Radio Patapoe [Amsterdam].
 "More" on EMI vinyl, 1969. Found this one on Queens Day, April
30. More interesting than you might at first think but that is just
because our minds' images of PF are inundated by later year
mediocrity. These guys were once very fascinating.
 "Memory Like Water" on XI <www.xirecords.org>. Absolutely
stunning piece that meanders like Robert Ashley in a sailing ship
with Gavin Bryars. Highly recommended.
 "We Are." On Trummerflora <www.publiceyesore.com>. Amazingly
interesting for a genre that tends toward the pretentious and vocal
tropes that move face first into cliché. Not this. This is like Yma
Sumac in heated debate with Diamanda Galas in a space capsule. With
Meredith Monk at mission control trying to mediate. With nice
acoustic and electronic accompaniment by the always adventurous
Fernandes. Highly recommended.
 "Shadow Behind the Iron Sun" <www.evelyn.co.uk>. EG is fairly
well decorated with awards and accolades and yet her music somehow
escaped me. She is a multi-media composer at easy in electronic beats
as she is in exploratory percussion. Has worked with Ray Davies, Fred
Frith, Nana Vasoncelos, Kodo, Bela Fleck, Bjork, Bobby McFerrin, and
did a commercial for the Mazda car. This improvised 'solo' percussion
CD with producer Michael Brauer is an amazing tour de force of
ambient, speculative soundscapes and trance-inducing percussion.
Highly recommended. She has also written a couple of educational
music books for the classroom. But it this CD that resounds through
your body because it is both hypnotic and investigative. Highly
 "The Uncertain Trail" on Sounds Around. Google them. This is the
future of dub. Deep, speculative, well-grounded and yet incredibly
rich, full-bodied and not a hint of returning to roots [cliches] like
so many modern dub units. This is definitely dub one step beyond into
jazz and avant electronica. Highly recommended.
 "Bravo! Brubeck!" on CBS vinyl. The pretentious white guy still
knows how to dazzle in a wholesome way. The great white hope
sometimes does overcome the handicaps of advantage [racially] He's
just a jazz cat.
 "01..05" on Optical Sound <www.optical-sound.com>. This label has
come out with an incredibly interesting catalog that goes scape and
ant-zen one step better. These are often multi-media projects
involving sound and you get the feeling that a lot of this has filled
galleries and has challenged ears in strange unlikely spaces.
 "Dark Goddess" on Black Note <www.blacknotemusic.com>.
Post-Hippie nightmare trance music that delves into the dark heart of
our spiritually dwindling existences. Always interesting.
 "Osibisa" on MCA vinyl. Found this on Queens Day for 50 cents.
Olatunji meets Santana on the way to Burundi Black's house.
o US had a gay bomb and it wasn't named Liberace! The US considered
developing a "gay bomb", which would make the enemy "sexually
irresistible" to each other, government papers say. Sounds like
something that would win the Nobel Peace Prize! The "love bomb" plans
called for an aphrodisiac that would provoke widespread homosexual
activity among troops, causing what the military called a
"distasteful but completely non-lethal" blow to morale.
Other weapons that never quite made it was one that made soldiers
perceivable/detectable by their bad breath and another that would
cause disarray by simulating flatulence in enemy ranks. Plus one that
would spread non-lethal chemicals that would disrupt enemy discipline
and morale [some gorgeous pole dancers might be cheaper!]. Another
military idea was for a "sting me/attack me" chemical weapon that
would attract enraged wasps or pissed-off rats towards enemy troops.
A substance to make the skin unbearably sensitive to sunlight was
also in early development stages at one point.
o Subject: The Demographics of American Newspapers [courtesy of
1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.
2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.
3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run
the country and who are very good at crossword puzzles.
4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the
country but don't really understand The New York Times. They do,
however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.
5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running
the country -- if they could find the time -- and if they didn't have
to leave Southern California to do it.
6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the
country and did a far superior job of it, thank you very much.
7. The New York Daily News is read by people who aren't too sure
who's running the country and don't really care as long as they can
get a seat on the train.
8. The New York Post is read by people who don't care who's running
the country as long as they do something really scandalous,
preferably while intoxicated.
9. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country
but need the baseball scores.
10. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure
there is a country or that anyone is running it; but if so, they
oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if
the leaders are handicapped minority feminist atheist dwarfs who also
happen to be illegal aliens from any other country or galaxy,
provided of course, that they are not Republicans.
11. The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the
12. The Pensacola News Journal is read by people who have recently
caught a fish and need something in which to wrap it.
o Paris Hilton has found god in jail and he's not a bad guy.
Meanwhile Sasha 'Borat' Cohen already sued by a frat house for
interviewing them while drunkly spewing racist garbage, a wall street
analyst harassed by Cohen on the streets of lower Manhattan is suing
for loss of business due to loss of face/legitimacy because of the
way he came across in the movie.
o A couple of years ago I read about how some grave robbers in NYC
had stolen the bones of BBC host Alistair Cooke and sold them for
transplant operations. One a NY dentist and another an embalmer are
alleged to have stolen body parts from some thousand dead [luckily!]
o Meanwhile, concertgoers should be pleased to hear that the
president [for life!] of Turkmenistan has banned playback/lip
synching along with ballet and opera as being dangerous to the
national mentality! But also long hair, beards and gold teeth [is he
mimicking American policies from the 1960s? see below! Pres. Niyazov
believes lip synching has a negative effect on the development of
music as art. Well, dammit, he's right!
o Just when you thot this could only happen in 'backward' lands with
dictators, the BBC reports: US town set to ban saggy trousers. The
mayor of Delcambre, Louisiana says he will sign into law the banning
of saggy trousers, declaring it an act of indecent exposure. The
town council unanimously passed the ordinance earlier this week
making it a crime to wear trousers that show underwear. "If you
expose your private parts, you'll get a fine" of US$500 (£254) Mayor
Carol Broussard said. Offenders will also risk up to six months in
jail. Speaking of people who wear saggy trousers, Mr Broussard told
the Associated Press news agency: "They're better off taking the
pants off and just wearing a dress."
Town attorney Ted Ayo said the ordinance expands on the existing
state indecent exposure law by adding underwear to the list of
forbidden exposures. "This is a new ordinance that deals specifically
with sagging pants," Mr Ayo said. "It's about showing off your
underwear in public." Some residents say the ordinance targets
blacks, as low-slung trousers are fashionable among hip hop fans. Mr
Broussard denied it was racially motivated. "White people wear
sagging pants, too," he said.
