"I only drink to make other people seem more interesting." o George Jean Nathan
 A perfect segue from the sacred to the insouciant.
 Saw this Japanese-based ensemble at the recent "Japan
Frequencies" show at the Paradiso as part of the annual Holland
Festival. They were part of an evening of avant samplers and they
blew everyone away. They created a wall of sound that was at once
elemental and sophisticated. Simple is always best. Waves of bass
that fluttered through our diaphragms and hair. You could feel your
bones shaking loose from all cartilage and begin shifting around. If
they had played any longer, a lot of us would have been rebuilt in
unique new ways. You could actually FEEL the waves of sonic activated
air sweep through your hair. This cut is off "Counterintelligence:
Subproject 01" <www.noisemail.com>
 "Wreck This Mess: Remission 2: Ambient-Industrial vs
Electronic-Dub vs Hypnotic-Grooves" on Noise Museum
<www.zone51.com/noisemuseum> This is volume 2 of the WTM series. It
includes Twilight Circus, Spectre, Systemwide, Dub Factory,
Extremadura, Botom Botom, Holon, Silk Saw, DJ Spooky, Egon Zo vs
Digidub, Audio Active, Starfish Pool, Andrew Lagowski. Here Laurent
expands the empire of WTM, into new unforeseen tympanic swirls. This
is a painstakingly and precisely edited disc. He is very particular
about what he likes and here it all fits into a meticulous polemic of
sound and noise against hyper-mediated commerce. The Starfish Pool
cut is pure beautiful insanity - a mechanical loop of menacing
jangling machinery that ends up lilting along until you find yourself
not scrunching your shoulders but unwinding. This cut is the sole
French piece on #2. Very eccentric piece of trippy hop and sampling
that pushes the envelope of dub to the far end of sound.
 "Cornu" a CD-single on Island. For more info:
<nicrichard@...> or <fanclub@...>. this beautiful
Luna-esque sultry vocal combines the best of remixing, dubby beats
thanx to Kid Loco and the voice of Julie Bonnie. Folksy, rootsy,
reaching far out. Intimate and universal. Highly recommended.
 "French Dub connection Vol. 2" on Echo Beach <www.echobeach.de>.
Includes Aleem, Lab, the Djins, Oto Elektrik, High Tone, etc. The
French are unique and exhibit a certain insane dedication to the
roots of Dub and its utter delicious manglings. Fresh and true raving
reverberations. Many of these bands have played the Batofar, one of
the great [Dub] clubs in the world. With artwork again by Fred
Voisin. This cut goes manic into hyperbeats while keeping the dub
sensibility intact. As I have said when the beats go very very hyper
the beats knock and melt into one another creating a beat not unlike
the slowest most subterranean dub.
 A delirious beats oriented hangover song of utter pain, humor,
and empathy dating from 1988. "I am sure I will be OK / If I am just
left aloneOh, god, I promise to never drink again / If you would
just stop this throbbing in my head."
 "Who exchanged a fine house for a flophouse, a bar and the klink
/ won't somebody buy me a drink."
 "Trip Tease" by tipsy on Asphodel <www.asphodel.com> Is another
excellent tongue-in-cheek low-life excursion into the manufactured
ambiences of an era or a state of mind that never happened. Matin[i]
 "Boris Vian et ses Interpretes" on Polygram is an excellent
introduction to the genius that was the songwriter side of Boris
Vian. For more on Vian see my article on "I Spit on Your Graves" in
ABR <http://www.litline.org/abr/abrjf98.html > or my "Boris Vian Gets
Pataphysical", Profile of this multi-tentacled Jacques-of-all-trades
in Gadfly <www.gadfly.org> SOON.
 "Serge Gainsbourg du Jazz Dans le Ravin" on Philips, 1996, is
truly a beautiful collection of his jazzier fare, some beautiful
instrumentals like "Angoisse" which is truly memorable. Here he does
his best imitation of / homage to Vian. Also rendered by Mick Harvey
in English. For more on Gainsbourg check my "The Rascal as Cultural
Provocateur- Serge Gainsbourg: Profile-review of View From The
Exterior: Serge Gainsbourg "in ABR
 "Didjohaffun" on Énorme in Paris. This transplanted USA ex-pat
<jasbande@...> has been scorching the Paris nightlife with her
spunky chansons for a few years now. Her naughty and acerbic take on
life is a perfect extension of Piaf and other nocturnal chanteuses.
She combines the brash with the riproaring rompishness. In an
interview in Sept. 1998 Accordeon Magazine #15 she had this to say
about the accordion: "It's a complete orchestra all in one; I love
the accordion's look and plus it tickles your breasts!"
 "Black & White Hillbilly Music: Early Harmonica Recordings from
the 1920s & 30s" on Trikont
<http://www.trikont.de/english/e_trikont.html>. This excellent label
has an incredible backlist. Inspiring lyric: "My bones gonna rise
 "Europa Hit parade #23" on Miller International. This nerdy disc
is one of those generic greatest hits LPs with an incongruous bathing
beauty frolicking in some waves.
 "Leve de Opera" on Trent. This drinking song comes from the
opera "La Traviata".
 "Chasms Accord" on Asphodel <www.asphodel.com>. This is a very
dark and eccentric collection of R&N odds & ends.
 "Les Meilleurs" on some knock-off label called Disky. Reinhardt
is one of my faves. He would have been the namesake of my baby had it
been a boy. Django is a good name. Reinhardt plays guitar better with
3 fingers than most could with 10.
 "Olleke Bolleke" on Dureco. If Kiss had met Spike Jones in an
Amsterdam brown café.
"As I grew older I became a drunk. Why? Because I like ecstasy of
the mind." o Jack Kerouac
