Week 59 - Even More Celebrities: There’s No Business Like Show business

Broadway legend Ethel Merman did a lot of decent recordings in the good old days but when hitting 71 years of age her judgement seemed to have been a bit hazy. Doing a disco album in 1979, just as disco was dwindling in popularity, was not a good idea. Well, it probably wouldn’t have been a good idea a few years earlier either. Although A&M never lost hope in this project, even printing up t-shirts that read “Ethel Boogies”. The Rude Kids single (Sonet, 1981) is not, even by a far stretch, any kind of celebrity recording but we like hearing these Swedish boys having a go at Björn Borg and Ingemar Stenmark. And you need a bit of punk now and then to spice things up. Mrs. Miller don’t need no introduction. This is from a promotion tape that was sent out to radio jockeys, a so-called open ended interview which means that they got a questioner form as well. They could then read the right question at the proper pause in the tape and it sounded like they were doing a real interview on the air as Mrs. Miller answered. We don’t have the questioner form so you just have to imagine the questions, it shouldn’t be too hard and you’ll get a few useful tips on how to whistle as well.

Sometimes I wish I was a pretty girl ...

.. not so much to be able to wreck myself in the shower... but to become a glamorous Playboy Bunny!

And what experience must a Bunny have?
"The Playboy club schools you in your duties so you do not need any special experience before you begin. [What a relief!!] You will be a Bunny in the Club of your choice after a one week training period [Good. I don't like studying too much].
You will be instructed in Playboy Club service and in the selection of fine wines and liqours. [I could use some new recipes...] You will also receive valuable information in the psychology of customer service and public relations. [I'll just throw the drunks out. Hey! You can look - but not touch, Mister!!]
A Bunny Mother is stationed in every Club to counsel Bunnies on hair styling, make-up and the fine points of poise and charm.[She better be damned good!] She will recommend proper make-up specialists, if necessary.[Unfortunatelly there is lot of work to be done... ] A beauty salon is located on Club premises in many cities." [Ah, free SPA, that IS good]

Ok, I'm signing up!

Beer, popularity and Syd Barrett

PCL LinkDump has been pretty popular today. No doubt about it. Around 12.000 hits over the last 24 hours. That's a nice and much appreciated flaunt of PCL in cyber space. Actually I appreciate this attention much more than the "Britney debacle" some time ago.
But after reading on Derrick Bostrom's backup blog (the guy who brought joy to us by posting the Uncensored, 1968 ads) that "My host punished me for the popularity of my post, slapping a suspension for “resource abuse” on me ..." got me thinking. Do you risk being too popular here on Blogspot? Blogger is providing the bandwidth, wich is a great and free - though not always reliable - service. But is there a limit? Just wondering...

Had some really nice cold beers yesterday at a local establishment listening too an old friend and musician performing new material there.
When back home I got a surprise: I WON A CONTEST!! HOORAY!! I'm really looking forward receiving the prize Ralf! And thanks for the piece-of-cake-contest. ;-)

More vinyl sniffers

The Vinyl Sniffers post now has one more sniffer: It's Frank from Earnest Little Cartoon Guy.

One more Sniffer has been added to the bunch: It's MrBaliHai of The Eye of the Goof.

Michelle from Tiny Bubbles has joined the vinyl sniffing community.

Lee Hartsfeld of Music You (Possibly) Won't Hear Anyplace Else joins the fun.

Note: I will use this square to keep you updated on the progress of "The Vinyl Sniffers" entry. It is already a fairly big entry and will probably grow huge when more responses comes flowing in. I think this is an important area of the vinyl culture scene to investigate so the space will be needed. And it's fun reading! the new additions will be added at random. So scroll down the post to find the new additions.

Week 58 - Even More Celebrities, London and Loa

Julie London not only sung about the joy of smoking she also – sure, as hell – knew how to let it all out as she proves in this little studio chat. You might not believe us, after hearing this track, that Loa Falkman is a well known and fine Swedish opera singer and actor. When he grabbles with popular music however everything perpetuating to good judgement and insight just seem to flee faster than Bugs Bunny. The truly horrendous butchering of this soul classic comes from his even more horrendous album Symfonin (Little Big Apple Music, 1990).

I apologize for becoming invisible.
Our situation at home is very financially bleak. We have had our utilities cut off for non-payment, and I can only access the internet at home or at the home of friends.
I can not produce new episodes of SPACE PATROL at this time, but to be honest, things have become so bleak that doing so is desperately far down the list of priorities.
I will be back when I can. Until then... please help me by purchasing episodes of SPACE PATROL on CD at axenhammer.com/spacepatrol .

"The mission is write about and scan in samples from your favorite saved fanzines, memorabilia of the past. Since my "past" is defined as spanning the years 1979 and on and in case you didn't catch on from the title, the focus is on the post-1979 American / UK punk-alternative-indie music scene ..."

"20 Classic Rock Classics"

"The Portsmouth Sinfonia was a musical group founded by English composer Gavin Bryars, while teaching at Portsmouth School of Art in Portsmouth, England, in 1970.
Bryars was interested more in experimenting with the nature of music than forming a traditional orchestra, and instead of picking the most competent musicians he could find, he allowed anyone to join, regardless of talent, ability and experience. The only rules were that everyone had to come for rehearsals, and that people should try their best to get it right and not try to sound silly. ..."
[Quote from Wikipedia Entry for The Portsmouth Sinfonia]

Now you can listen to (and download) The Portsmouth Sinfonia doing "20 Classic Rock Classics" over at Fidelisharium.
Warning: Do not listen to all "melodies" at once. Listen when you're in a good mood and listen sparse. Handle with care. You'll be rewarded.

Additional: Here's an interview with Brian Eno from 1981 about his involvement with The Portsmouth Sinfonia.

Be wild, not evil: The Link Wray story

"... Tearing down the highway in some shitbox of a car while blasting Link's guitar, some little chickadee flashing an inspirational bit of leg by your side--this is one of the great pleasures of still being ambulatory. That savage sound magnifies life's melodrama to a sublime degree. The night turns blacker, the moon more luminous, even her lipstick's a deeper shade of red. One could get all cutesy and call his music Ennio Morricone by way of a three-track-shack, but that would be dumb. You can't really compare Link to anything or anybody. He was an original to the death. ..."

Christina Lindberg: trailers

What would get me back to blogging? Christina Lindberg of course!
I just stumbled over 2 trailers featuring Christina uploaded to YouTube.
Note: None of these trailers are of course safe to watch at work.

One was found by Kahlo: 'Sex & Fury' ('Furyô anego den: Inoshika Ochô') her japanese exploitation adventure starring Reiko Ike.
Watch it here: Trailer for 'Sex & Fury'.

Then I found the trailer for Christina's most famous movie: 'Thriller- En Grym Film' ('Thriller-A Cruel Picture' aka 'They Call Her One-Eye').
The trailer was originally uploaded to YouTube by Squiggs.

Earlier posts here on PCL concerning Christina: March 20, 2006 (link to fun and informative interview), December 15, 2005, February 20, 2005, August 31, 2004 (and, no, the mp3s are NOT available anymore...).

No, PCL LinkDump will never become the official blog for Britney - more likely the unofficial tribute site for all things Christina Lindberg. But - Hey! - dye Britney's hair black, dress her in a long black coat and put a gun and an eye patch on her: Ta Da! (Maybe this is something that Johnny with his PS skills could look into... ;-))

Week 57 - Even more celebrities: British comedy

Comedian Benny Hill's first LP 'Benny Hill Sings?' (PYE, 1965) is one of the better comedy albums to come out of the sixties. Unlike a lot of other celebrity stuff Benny really show a knack for musicianship. Even doing a good Dylan on 'What A World' as he comments Bobs visit to England. Randy Randolph’s tune is probably more well known as the theme tune for Benny’s show. While we´re on the subject of comedians we might as well take a listen to a group who did one of the best comedy shows ever: The Young Ones. Here (WEA, 1986) they team up with Cliff Richard for a massacre on his 1959 hit.
Click Cliff and the guys for close-up.

K'vitsh's book report

Isn't this picture lovely? This is Wood w/ her youngest daughter, Courtney.

I've been fascinated by Natalie Wood ever since I was a child. I don't remember why or how I was initially drawn to her. Probably a combination of seeing West Side Story and being enamoured of her dark hair and dark eyes, my favorite kind of beauty.

This book (Natasha: The Biography of Natalie Wood, by Suzanne Finstad) garnered a bit of controversy when it was released a few years ago, largely due to it's treatement of Wood's death. Finstad interviewd hundreds of people, including people who had their boats docked in the same harbour as the Wagners that night. Apparently, a family heard a woman screaming that she was drowning, then heard male voices mocking her. I guess many other witnesses observed the Wagners, their captain (or whatever), and guest Christopher Walken get absolutely smashed that weekend. What a shame.

It's not the most skillfully written book. Finstad tends to repeat the same thing over and over - especially her evil mother's manipulations and Wood's fear of drowning in dark water. It gets to be a bit much.

It was an interesting read, nonetheless. And strangely, more because of the memories and thoughts it stirred in me than for the subject matter itself.

I found myself comparing my thinking to the way I thought when I read the book her sister had written. I read it as a tween, probably.

It contained tales of woe, temper tantrums, suicide attempts. Love and kindness, too, but I want to focus on the nasty stuff.

As a young girl, I would read biographies of famous people, and be encouraged by stories of them being difficult and troubled. It made me feel better about myself. "See? Natalie Wood was a bitch sometimes. I'm a bitch sometimes. She was beautiful and famous. Not only does that make my bad habits admirable, but maybe it's destined that I be famous, too."

While my thinking was never that thuddingly literal, that's what I took away from these books, among being moved or entertained or appalled.

Basically, I did what most people do - romanticising things that are really quite awful. As I read this book, I saw a life that to me seemed filled with more pain than happiness or fulfillment. Wood was warped beyond belief by her mother. Maria Gurdin believed a gypsy prophesy fortold of her second daughter's greatness, even before Wood's birth.

Gurdin did things like refusing to take Wood to the doctor when, as a child, she broke her wrist on a set (which is why in nearly every picture of Wood you'll ever see, she wears a clunky bracelet on her left wrist), lest the movie production be delayed. She also instilled a fear of sex and childbirth in Wood so she wouldn't leave home (she overcame this in spades).

According the Finstad's book, Wood was violently raped by a major Hollywood star (alledged on the net to be Kirk Douglas), attempted suicide a few times, had affairs w/ men three times her age when she was sixteen, had a complex and needy relationship w/ her mother, and was always worried about her career. Okay, I guess that last point wasn't particularly tragic or limited to Wood, but it seemed sadder than it likely is for most. Acting is a scary business, especially if you're a woman. How awful to never feel sure, never feel validated, or safe.

One of the most interesting aspects of the book dealt w/ the persona Wood's mother created when she was a child actor. Wood struggled all her life to balance or reconcile her real self w/ her acting persona. It's ironic that as a child, I took a bit of a lesson in how to be a person from a woman who didn't know who she really was.

André Carrilho

We all know these waylaying cartoonists which are hanging around all the popular sights of the world, waiting for hapless tourists to lure them into getting painted with ridiculously funny grimaces, jaws as wide as the ocean and noses that would put Cleopatra into a fit of jealousy.

Now, Portuguese designer André Carrilho's portraits have an uncanny resemblance with these kind of cartoons, yet I have to admit I do like the freshness, elegance and wit of his style. They look a bit as if Francis Bacon did a stint on the tourist trails round Montmartre, albeit with a silk screen printer at hand. (As it happens, Carrilho has indeed done a portrait of Bacon.)

He does have an impressive pedigree already, as his illustrations have appeared in the New York Times, the Observer, and the Independent, amongst others. But it's probably could to know that should all else fail, there's always the streets of Paris or Rome to go to.

Week 56 - Even More Celebrities: Harry Dean Stanton

We’ve been dipping our feet in the celebrity pond before but there’s just too many of these recordings around so we will have another go at it for a month and a half.
Click Mr. Stanton for better view.

Harry Dean Stanton is a classy actor and you just know it, when he opens his mouth to sing it isn’t going to be the usual trying-to-cash-in-on-fame gibberish. This is really good, kind of makes us wish he done more than this single, beautiful renditions of these classics. But then he did have good help: Jamie James on guitar, Slim Jim Phantom on drums and Tony Sales on bass.

Annual mp3 tribute to Jesus Christ

"We've got our annual mp3 tribute to Jesus Christ going on right now...51 rare (mostly Southern) gospel, old-time religion and praise songs...direct from vinyl.

Some of these toe-tappers are definitely "unique" and might even make a few glum Atheists smile and/or convert.

1960's Phoney Records

Hi everyone, jayKayEss here from Unpleasant.org. Since Sebastian is going on hiatus, I asked if I could post something here once in a while.

I spotted some Crazy Labels over on Martin Klasch the other day, and it got me thinking that I have a whole cigar box of this stuff that my uncle used to collect back when he was a kid. So, here is the first installment: Phoney Records. I'm guessing these are from the late 60's, based upon the songs. I'm sure that titles like "Burp Me, Rhonda" seemed really rebellious to my 10-year-old uncle at the time. Enjoy!

ACK, it was probably dumb of me not to point out that these are stickers, not actual records... I'm guessing the stickers came from either bubble gum or Cracker Jack boxes. Click on the scan above to see more...

A break is needed

... and will be executed.

I am taking a break from this blog for a while. Kind of tired of being a blogger.
I don't know for how long at this moment.

Maybe some days, maybe some weeks or maybe I am going for a "Bomarr vacation". Time will tell.

If anyone of my contributing friends feel like posting good stuff - just go ahead. Knock yourself out!

Here I come!

The Residents - Constantinople

The Note-Ables

"... The Note-Ables look as corny as a Swedish dansband from the early 70s, but dressed less way out. A record perhaps to be filed next to The Legendary Stardust Cowboy, Hasil Adkins and the likes. Highly recommended!" says Magnus of Bellybongo about:
The Note-Ables - Flipside.
I recommend it as well. Great fun.

Les patriarches

Les patriarches by French artist mad meg. (via gmtPlus9 (-15))
Shown here is Patriarche n°31.


I am sitting on a huge pile of luggage: I'll be heading south tomorrow, towards the Mediterranean, and believe me, after a long and arduous winter such as the one we've just had it's high time to catch a few glimpses of sun and to dip my toes into some lush and lukewarm waters. Mind you, they're still as white as my teeth. (The toes, of course, not the waters.)

One of the places I'll surely stop over is the wonderful French city of Urville. What's that you say? Never heard of the place? Ah, don't say. This city is one of the biggest and most spectacular places the world has ever seen. And with its 11.5 million inhabitants and its 150 skyscrapers - one of them scraping the sky at an incredible 540 meters - it is hard to miss when you're cruising along the Côte d'Azur. No, no, this is not a belated April fool's prank. Urville does exist, believe me. Right here.

Go ahead, see for yourself. And then tell me what you think of the place. But for now, please excuse me. I've still got some duffle bags to pack and some neighbourly instructions to write down. Now, where did I put that toothbrush again ...
