I started watching the Raquel Welch movie, "Myra Breckinridge" last night. Hoo man... it's awful. I'm gonna try to finish it tonight... but I'm not too sure I'll make it.
It's touted as "The book they said couldn't be written is now the movie they said couldn't be made!"
They were right!

Would you share a nite cap with this man?

The Trashmen - Surfin' Bird (1963).
In fact there is only the singer/drummer Steve Wahrer and his rumbling vocals doing that crazy bird dance!
It is followed by a short interview of the young Steve...
--originally uploaded by Beyond The Beat
This song is a combination of 2 R&b hits by The Rivingtons: Papa Oom Mow Mow and The Bird's The Words from 1962
Via Yesterdays Gold (You can download The Rivingtons - The Liberty years album there)
Now that you've got the music, you are ready to learn doin' the bird dance with The Rivingtons.

Sorry, there's no "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb" on this compilation, but there IS the theme song from the 1960s TV hit series (and its companion cha-cha dance version), as well as a great hipster spy number entitled "Caper at the Coffee House"--all the other baristas will be SO impressed when you play this CD on the job, I practically guarantee it.
You can find the three song sampler from the album here.
If you're a fan of Louis Jordan, Bullmoose Jackson, and the Treniers, then grab a taste of what BeBop Wino is passing around--late 1940s sides by Philadelphia R & B bandleader/singer Jimmy Preston.

Mae West and Criswell On the Moon - 1955

Rough around the edges & with hooks to burn, it's "A Minha é pura" by Tororó do Rojão. Available with other vintage forró from Mulambada which includes 2 versions of the Gordurinha classic "Chiclete com Banana"--have I mentioned today how much I love Gordurinha? No? Well, listen to this, maybe you will love him too.

An odd, old find during a recent flea market trip.

Brigitte Bardot - "Contact" (1967) music by Serge Gainsbourg.
They felt in love immediatly after the studio recording session in october 1966. Brigitte was at that time married to the millionaire Gunther Sachs. At the end of 1967, the couple recorded the song "Je t'aime, moi non plus" that was consider outrageous by the press. Her husband warns her after the scandal, she asked Serge to stop the released of the song, it ends violently their story. Their passion had been as intense as short.

I always thought PCL was just something thought up by the original collaborators.
But now thanks to this entry in the Damn Interesting! blog, I now know it stands for Psychopathy Check List
They even include a little test, and I'm hoping you all pass.

I am far less impressed by the actual outtakes from Martin & Lewis promos for their movie "The Caddy" than I am by this exceptional decal. (don't bother downloading unless you think you'd get a kick out of hearing Dean & Jerry say bad words)
from Dartman's World of Wonder
Now available--1950s calypso tunes from the Duke of Iron, including the Naughty Fly, Woman Police, Loving Woman is a Waste of Time, and the Big Bamboo (the definitive version, for those keeping score).
All the lame crap above is just an excuse to post this great song sent to me recently--"Karate" by Ray Sanders & Friend. (I like to think "Friend" is the blonde from the movie "Faster Pussycat Kill Kill")
(Thanks Mr. McNamerson, I need some more music pleeeeease)

Jeanne started in show business aged 17, she became soon a burlesque dancer, a cheesecake model, a b-movie actress, a trick shot golfer . She hanged out with The Rat Pack and was a close friend of Marilyn Monroe (she said!). Lately she was acting in 2002 for Rob Zombie's horror movie : House of 1000 corpses (though it was filmed, the scene was later cut).

We are hard, bald and vegetarians.
We kill people on stage. Real people. People we don't like. We don't eat them. We just kill.
We used to have alot of groupies. They are all gone now. The audience seem to diminish for every year too.
We rock. We are artists. We have something important to say. If you don't listen - FUCK YOU.
Those of you who took my recommendation of downloading the 1979 album Things Aren't Right by Chicago New Wave musician Wazmo Nariz will undoubtedly be pleased to get more whiny and hiccup-y vocal treats from the Waz--his 1978 Stiff Records singles "Tele-tele-telephone" and "Wacker Drive" can be found here.
