From King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton & Washboard Rhythm Kings all the way through Little Richard, Shel Silverstein, and Dr. Hook, Twindowlicker has got a freakin' mess of music on the subject of freaks, freakiness, and their freaky ways. Freakish Man Blues, Call of the Freaks, Freakish Mistreater Blues.....you'll surely find something that'll help you get yer freak on.

....and now in pleasant Fig flavor!
On the menu at Cafe Muscato (make up your own PCL Linkdump joke here)
In case you've ever wondered what the Beatles might have sounded like had they been from Argentina instead of Britain, you might want to check out music by the Knacks (no, not the "My Sharona" band) on COMOTECAIGO. You can find other Psicodelicias Sudamérica there from Los Flippers and Los Shakers (below).
"Marybel, the Doll That Gets Well"....can I break her leg again, Mommy? Pretty please?
From Mostly Forbidden Zone
I'm sure this has happened to you as well, sometimes it's SO tricky finding the perfect music to set the mood when you're hosting a cockfight. Fortunately Si se Rompe se Compone comes to the rescue with this classic Ansonia album by Chuito el de Bayamón. Gracias!

Hello dear listeners.
Let's step back in time to experience one of the most popular nightclub acts of 1961.....it's Mr. Bill Barner, his ivory-tickling stylings, and his irritating habit of sniggering at his own jokes. The "mirth-quake" of hee-larity begins here.

Betcha you don't have one of these....it's a collection of tinny honky-tonk music produced in Brazil, by a French sounding guy--Alain Strument--performing as "The Crazy Otto", who is supposed to be drunk. His version of "In the Mood" is particularly....special.
You can thank International Restored LP for the lovely gift.

PS. I can only imagine the accompaniment to Red's "Crying in the Chapel" would be a fifth.
Whoever can send me a link to an MP3 of "Giddy Up a Ding Dong" by Cacka Israelsson will be my best friend for LIFE. C'mon you Swedes out there, make an American girl's day!!
EDIT: Some lovely reader sent me a link to this, to convert videos to MP3s. If I were not so technologically challenged I might have known such a thing existed. Thank you, dear reader!!

Lonely Woman for ukelele, bass harmonica, or toy piano? Sure, why not? What's In My iPod has the sheet music of compositions by Ornette Coleman from his milestone Change of the Century and Shape of Jazz to Come albums.
Je Suis Perdue by Gigi Gaston (Flash Video 03:49). Gigi, The Black Flower, an exhibit by Josh Gosfied at Steven Kasher Gallery, October 22 to November 25, 2009. More about Gigi Gaston - the 1960's French pop star, teen icon and tabloid celebrity - at Josh Gosfield's Mighty House of Pictures.
For my own blog's 500th post, a milestone that impresses way me more than it does anyone else, I am featuring an :"old school" cha-cha album, from back-in-the-day, featuring Jan August playing those old-timey cha-cha tunes that make us all laugh at how foolish those people were long ago, back in the sixties! Oh yeah, it's here.

Fun fact: Composer/arranger David Carroll's real name was Nook Schreier. OK, maybe it's NOT so fun...but his 1956 album Percussion in Hi-Fi is. Find it here.
In case you're wondering what happened to all the great classic R & B and rock from Boogie Woody you can now find his exceptional music and commentary at Bebop Wino Done Gone.
Steven Hills Movie Title Pages. Just....endless, hundreds, assloads of movie title screens. Has to be seen to:
A: Be believed
B: Be appreciated
let's face it - this stuff is an impact making few seconds of any film (for instance, in my house we say, "Cartoon opening; good movie." - think about it - it's true) and Senor Hill has made it his mission, with just a hint of "WTF?!?"

Yippee, Magic Carpet Burn has the theme song from My Favorite Martian and it has LYRICS, yes it does. Maybe today doesn't suck as bad as I first thought.

Could the King of British Latin music be nearing his hundredth birthday? Some think Edmundo Ros needs to get back into the studio to celebrate the occasion; see if you agree by listening to his music here.
"This 1950 US LP compiles 78s that brought Prado fame in Mexico...The discography there says that this is Prado's first US LP, and may be his first LP anywhere."
Graciously share at Big 10-Inch Record

'Surfs Up' is the emotional centerpiece of SMiLE. A song written with 3 movements, Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks wrote this on the night of November 4th, 1966. They were both sure that this song was a masterpiece, and in my own view they were right. The song was about "a child's freedom", as Van Dyke Parks said years later in an interview. But the song is seen by many as something a lot different than a happy child anthem: Brian's Swansong. When the Brian scrapped SMiLE in 1967, he was scrapping his last real musical project for the next 20 years. And, perhaps, 'Surfs Up' was his last real masterpiece.

I guess "shoes" sounded better in Czech? I'm still on a Czech bender at Lethal Dose.

Here's my song of the day--granted, I haven't been listing to too much today but nevertheless--it's "Eso Eso Eso" by Los TNT, found at Ya Yo Salva Musical.
While you're there, you might want to get a swell version (see below) of "Don't Be Cruel" by Los Llopis, in which the lead singer can barely hold back his tears, or maybe it's just dyspepsia.

See more Karel on my blog, or search him on youtube. Be sure to check out the mindblowing "Lady Karneval."
See, I’ve saved them all on reel-to-reel tapes. It’s this DELICIOUS program I record from my radio Wednesday nights. “SwaG!” -- I’m not sure what that’s supposed to mean, or what exactly is wrong with the odd little man who appears to be in charge. He has such a weird edge. But his musical selection is unlike any I’ve heard on the Top 40. It’s so invigorating!
Here. I have four of these radio programs, all from the end of the summer of ’09. They are three hours each, so please make yourself comfortable, dear.
