Kisne Dekha Hai Kal

"Asha Bhosle sings for Zeenat Aman, whose character is faking blindness while on a mission to save her long-lost father, played by Premnath. Check out Amjad Khan in this video, on whom Panchamda is providing vocal support with his gimmicky grunting bass. Music by the late, great R.D. Burman."
From the 1978 movie 'Heeralal Pannalal'.

It's Klezmer-iffic!

If you've been in a Hassidic state of mind lately, you'll want to hora over to Metrobase, where you'll find a startingly deep selection of klezmer music available for download. Choose from such artists as Yid Vicious or the Klezmatics, and delight in such toe-tappers as "The Stinky Hobo", "Taking the Flower Arrangements Home After the Wedding", or the one that I was compelled to download, a version of "Night Boat to Cairo" sung in Yiddish from King Django's Roots Culture. L'chaim!

The Making of Blonde on Blonde

"A memory from the summer of 1966: Across the Top 40 airwaves, an insistent drum beat led off a strange, new hit song. Some listeners thought the song too explicit, its subject of wild lunacy too coarse, even cruel; several radio-station directors banned it. Despite the controversy over the lyrics about madness and persecution, or more likely because of it, the record shot to No. 3 on the Billboard pop-singles chart. The singer-songwriter likened the song, which really was a rap, to a sick joke. His name was Jerry Samuels, but he billed himself as Napoleon the XIV, performing “They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!”

That spring, an equally controversial single, with an eerily similar opening, had quickly hit No. 2; and by summer, “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35” had reappeared as the opening track on the mysterious double album, Blonde on Blonde, by Bob Dylan, who said the song was about “a minority of, you know, cripples and orientals and, uh, you know, and the world in which they live.” Over Coppertone-slicked bodies on Santa Monica Beach and out of secluded make-out spots and shopping-center parking lots and everywhere else American teenagers gathered that summer, it seemed that, the ba-de-de-bum-de-bum announcing Dylan’s hit about getting stoned was blaring from car radios and transistor radios, inevitably followed by the ba-de-de- bum-de-bum announcing Jerry Samuels’s hit about insanity. It would be Samuels’s last big recording; and after July, Dylan would be convalescing from a serious motorcycle crash. ..."

Modular music

Modular music is the new Aperitivo radio show. Why modular because somewhere there we will talk about Louis Philippe's magnigficient music. This week with the helping hand of Devil's Anvil, United States of America, Kevin Ayers, 8bit music, brazil and more spectacular delights.

Kiss caress and more until next time

Group hug

With a little help from Spike and especially Wendy and the boys I too want to welcome the new team members johnnyuma and PhantomOfTheRadio.
We are happy to unite in one big group hug as Wendy spits out "Living Dead" and "Butcher Baby"on "Fridays", the early 80s TV-Series. Oh, I can smell the Love! and the team spirits are rising hitting me like an axe in the heart!

Welcome to the new Dumpers!

I'd like to take this opportunity to offer a hearty handclasp of friendship to the two new PCL Linkdumpers, Johnnyuma and Phantom of the Radio.

Mr. Radio maintains a swell blog entitled Do You Speak English (shuh-YEAH, like who DOESN'T), from which I have stolen many great things to post here and elsewhere. His addition will surely cut my posts in half, which may not be such a bad thing.

Mr. Yuma is a close personal friend of mine for a great many years from the Stumbleupon realm. He once confided in me of his previous career as a British pop star by the name of Leapy Lee, at least I think it was him. Maybe he told me he was once homeless in New Orleans for three weeks, I forget which. In his spare time Mr. Yuma enjoys scrapbooking, singing along to the music of Enya while wearing sparkly spandex, and cheating on his Income Tax returns. Anyway, he will be a stellar addition to the team as well. And was too lazy to post his own introduction to this site and asked me to do it for him, so this is what he gets. Viva Leapy!!

Gregorius - NMKY

I've seen a lot of strange YMCA covers on the net sofar. Ton Rückert found this one for us. Appearently it's Finnish. I can't understand a single word. It seems like he's singing about a gymnastic's society. Anyone who could give us some explanation/translation?

In 1969, the imaginative indie record producer, and jazz-lover, Mark Sutton, who owned his own recording studio in Soho, gathered together some of the finest session jazz musicians working in London together with husband and wife, Dev and Sitara Kumar to record a series of what we might today call "fusion". ..."

Eternity in Davy Jones' Locker

If you've always thought a watery grave might be for you one day....or if you're an environmental-case looking to become a permanent part of a manmade reef, then this article in Obit is for you.

For between $2,500 and $6,500, Eternal Reefs incorporates the cremated remains of humans and/or their pets into the cement used to make reef balls, which are spheres with holes in them that are sunk in the ocean to encourage the growth of coral and fish populations and establish breakwaters.


Susa's Red Ears

Filmmaker Brent Green helpfully provides this description of his short animation, "Susa's Red Ears":
"A little girl with a firetruck in her head on the day the sun explodes saves herself, and very little else."

From Creative Capital:

"I'm not, so much, into polished stuff," says Green, whose work is all about the improbable splendor of the broken down, the rickety, and the barely-held-together. "I don’t see any beauty in it."

This pursuit of the unexpected is what drew Green to filmmaking in the first place. After writing a short story, Green decided he wanted to bring it to life. So he taught himself how to animate, maniacally drawing thousands of images that second by second became his first film, Susa's Red Ears (2002), a story about a girl who sleeps on top of a bureau.

Here's what's In His iPod

What's In My iPod was on hiatus for a while, but seems back now with a vengeance. Miscellaneous rai music (more Chebs than you can shake a stick at!), some Art Ensemble of Chicago, a band he describes as "the Georgian Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross", gamelan, and lots of other crazy-ass stuff.....I think the top of my head just blew off. Or maybe it's just my mind expanding. Go visit him.

The lost continent

Here at Aperitivo's headquarter we just received news from one of our missing scientist team.
They found the lost continent and it is inhabited by strange creatures. They send us a recording of their musical rites. Here it is just for your ears with the residents, Devil's Anvil, Ennio Morricone, soul, electronic, and baroque pop.

Works by Roger Mayne

Street Scene, St. Stephens Gardens Roger Mayne... Street Scene, St. Stephens Gardens (1958, Vintage gelatin silver print). From Works by Roger Mayne at Gitterman Gallery in New York, NY. "...This exhibition brings together his most celebrated work from 1956-61 in Southam Street with his lesser know work from the 1960s from the English countryside and the Mediterranean. Whether photographing in London or abroad, in the street or in nature, Mayne’s work is filled with an emotional depth that further emphasizes the integrity of his eye."

A tribute to Chenard Walcker

"Chenard Walcker, a friend of the online music world, is slowly recovering from a diabetic coma. His brother reports that he is not physically suffering. He fell into the coma in September 2006, and is now working on speech development and object differentiation.
Chenard is the prolific visual and musical collage artist who operates the
Free Sample Zone with 58 releases available for download. Chenard also has two releases available on our label and he has contributed to various compilations.
So many of us have benefited from and enjoy Chenard's work. This is our chance to repay our sweet friend and to send him our love with a tribute release on WM Recordings."

A fantastic piano lesson

made and uploaded by Ton van Rijswijk

"An animation I made for my graduation on the art academy."

Kip Hanrahan

Musician/producer/lyricist Kip Hanrahan’s greatest contribution to music is in his role as facilitator-- inspiring some fabulous performances from such diverse artists as Jack Bruce, Steve Swallow, Don Pullen, Arto Lindsay, David Murray, and a whole slew of Latin percussionists.

At his best, the different musical styles meld together in ways that are fresh and energizing, or unapologetically romantic and sensual. Granted, Kip has been known to drift into some unforgivably bad territory--self indulgent artsy blather about his sex life, and songs with unnecessarily heavy and intrusive percussion.

Follow this link to a sampler of some of Kip’s best music from the 1980s. At the very least, go for my all-time favorite track: Shadow Song (Mario’s In)—highlighted by tight band arrangements, Jack Bruce’s rocking vocals, and David Murray’s searing hot sax solos that just might get you up and dancing around the room. Then visit the website of Kip’s label, American Clavé, for more about this underrated artist.

Addy Kleijngeld

Henny de Leeuwe dedicated a website to her father, the late Dutch accordeon player and songwriter Addy Kleijngeld.
She includes a section record sleeves of recordings by artists he worked with. There's a seperate section of the most famous one among them: Heintje

Absolutely safe for work ;-)

Remember the times of "switched on..." records. Who said the times they are changing.
This is Lev and thumpbot an amazing duet.
Switched on crazy is automated music as opposed to random, this is a fine work of precision, pure jewellery.

Making Lionel Hampton

Seattle artist Scott Fife creates eerily lifelike busts from cardboard, wood glue, and metal screws. Witness Making Lionel Hampton, a short movie documenting the creation of a bust of the jazz master that edits out the presence of the sculptor altogether.

Where was Kerouac going?

"Jack Kerouac’s proposed design for the front cover of the paperback edition of On the Road (1952)."
"... And yet, if On the Road long ago ceased to be a revolutionary narrative, it did introduce a pair of legends that remain persistent—and, I’d argue, counterproductive—ideals. The first is that of spontaneous composition which Kerouac promoted throughout the ’50s, even banging out a short guide, “Essentials of Spontaneous Prose” ...
... Kerouac, however, had been trying to write On the Road for two and a half years before he started working on this version; he’d struggled through several drafts that lacked the necessary immediacy and voice. That’s one reason the book has so much power—it’s the expression of an artist wrestling with a problem, the problem of how to make language and experience explode off the page. ...
... Nonetheless, he understood that spontaneity is not always the best strategy, and when he worked on Buddhist-themed books like The Scripture of the Golden Eternity (1960), which he considered holy, he wrote “in pencil, carefully revised and everything, because it was a scripture. I had no right to be spontaneous. ...”
