    Sort of went a little Sergio Leone at times there. Cool.

    I can't quite decide how much I like The Rigs. A lot of their stuff is slinky slow. This one has a nice build to it though.

    Thanks to Gray, I'm listening to Hanatarash right now:


    Once when I was young and foolish (which I still am of course), I got Pizzicato Five mixed up with some Japanese noise punk band:
    - Pizzicato Five? Oh, you mean that Japanese noise punk band?
    - Yeah, like, no.

    I had heard them on the radio a few times, but somehow missed what they were called.

    Edit:
    Someone described the music of Hanatarash as therapeutic and, yeah, I can see it used as such, like a headcleaner.

    This reminds me of the time I lived next door to a sound art student.

    I'm following a winding rabbit trail again:

    The Shaggs - My Pal Foot Foot:

    The backstory is partly sad, but also made for some interesting results. I especially like this one, because of the drums. If you're not immediately into it, try playing it at double speed. As far as I know, they were all forced into pursuing a musical career by their authoritarian father, starting with no experience at all, and were still learning the basics when recording their first album (and they knew this themselves, but their father made it happen anyway). Not following conventions -- even if it was accidental -- is what makes it worthwhile to me.

    Deerhoof - I Will Spite Survive:

    Someone mentioned Deerhoof while I was listening to The Shaggs and they have also covered Foot Foot. The singing reminded me of something else and it took a while before my marbles fell into place, but I think it was Broadcast on Tender Buttons (a band I was into during a certain time in my life (channelling my inner emo?)): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z79T...IaFLMRggt5Q5JG

    Ornette Coleman - The Shape of Jazz to Come:

    Mentioned as an example of "freeform".

    There's more, but I can't post it all. What binds it all together -- other than having been mentioned in relation to one another -- is that it never gets boring, which is otherwise a problem I have with a lot of music. There's also some I haven't listened to yet, like Vivian Girls and Charles Ives, but I'll get to that in my own due time.

    I enjoyed Primus' Wynona's Big Brown Beaver and Blackberry Smoke and never tire of Sultans of Swing. Guitar George he knows all the chords”. The start of Lady D'Arbanville by Cat Stevens reminds me of Lady Jane by the Stones 1966.

    Ornette Colman I always find difficult to take in but I’m trying. Unfortunately YouTube ads were a bit too free jazz and came in half way through tracks 2, 3 and 4. I didn’t know he died quite recently (2015).

    I liked Rita Payés and was very taken by her Mother and her videos and St George Quartet that Rita plays in. I’ve played their 18 minute video twice. Love everything about it. Calm, assured, nothing affected.

    Best I can do in return, another family (also with young lady who plays brass) and their response to lockdown.

    I’m with the dog.

    There's a madness to your movements. It really gets my goat.


    These are the sounds behind the machine.

    MitiS has a really cliche sound, but I still really like almost every track the guy puts out. Go figure.




    While we're at it, this is what happens when you remix a classic '80s tune as a classic '80s tune.

    Track from 1980 about a Berlin that doesn't exist anymore. Documentary video material from the film "B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin 1979–1989". (free on amazon prime)

    Interesting how something can remain pretty much unnoticed for more than 30 years and then turn into a megahit and a cultural phenomenon overnight due to a quirk in Youtube's recommendation algorithm.

    Very interesting. I couldn’t work out the nudist roof top message at 1:13 (presumably from West Berlin to the other side). It brought back memories from Spring 68 of how news was transmitted. Walking back to Checkpoint Charlie from restrictive East Berlin we read an electronic scrolling banner high on the other side saying “Martin Luther King assassinated”. West Berlin seemed to emphasize its relaxed nature, right from the border where a GI, feet on desk, casually waved you through, while listening to Lady Madonna on a transistor radio. We later went to see just-released Swedish film I am Curious Yellow with German subtitles. Unexpectedly Martin Luther King appeared briefly when the heroine apologizes to him for not being strong enough to practice non-violence.

    It seems to say "TU WAT" (Do something).

    Does *INSTANDBESETZT* at 1:16 mean “do this place up” ? The red star looks similar to the roof-top flag where the nudists are. Perhaps they were squatters.

    Instandbesetzung is a portmanteau of instand setzen (repair) & besetzen (squat). It refers to a squatting with the declared aim of rescuing decaying old buildings from demolition and making them habitable again. Due to the extensive self-work required, an extraordinary interest in preservation could be demonstrated and legalization was often achieved.

    Fascinating. Translating the Instandbesetzung page, I see the movement started in West Berlin in 1979, which fits the dates you mention for the video. Danke.

    My favorite track by Ideal is this one:


    I even saw Ideal live once! In April 1982 at the "No Nukes" festival in Utrecht. Don't ask me how young I was at the time. It took many years until I finally bought one of their albums. I got 2 albums in my digital collection now. And I do play them once in a while! (I can't say that about all the albums I own). The first album is still fun to listen to.

    I love this song not only because of the music. I love the voice/sound/aggressiveness of the singer. And the lyrics. I doubt this song (Hundsgemein) is any fun if you don't understand the lyrics. Sorry.

    PS. I liked the clip with the Berlin song. Indeed very eighties. I didn't miss the eighties during the nineties or the next decade. But to be honest, I do start to think more fondly about the eighties nowadays. I'm probably getting old.

    Hundsgemein is a great track (and another childhood memory). I always liked the tracks sung by Annette Humpe best, that were basically punk rock, like Rote Liebe.

    The song I listened most to today is certainly the one I mademashed up: http://schwarzsilber.de/bloomes_question.mp3

    Steppenwolf

    I've played this several times this week online, although I still have the LP. There are several YouTube videos but I chose this one as it includes Jack Nicholson on pillion. Allegedly the first heavy metal song, due to the lyric "heavy metal thunder".

    I like smoke and lightning
    Heavy metal thunder
    Racing with the wind
    And the feeling that I'm under.

    The Thermals - I don't believe you



    featuring Carrie Brownstein (Sleater Kinney) and in the final twist Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse)
    I so hope they will re-unite, they were the best rock band of the naughts and Hutch Harris is the sexiest man alive. Like a Rock'n'Roll Sheldon Cooper.
