Try To Remember - The Populaires

Pastor McPurvis says: "Up this week we are featuring the swingin’ lounge sounds of the Populaires. Way back in March of this year we offered up the Populaires Album #9 and wondered if eight other platters were floating around somewhere out there. Well during our most recent thrift store rescue sweep we were overjoyed to spot this bright yellow gem sporting the Populaires’ sparse cover art layout we have come to know and love. ..."

Foreigners Around the World

Swedish - Racial Characteristics:
"Tedious, clean-living boy scout types, strangers to graffiti and littering, but who are possessed of an odd suicidal mania. Speculation is that they're slowly boring themselves to death. This is certainly the case if their cars and movies are any indication. They eat a lot of fish, and perhaps this is more brain food than their modest cranial endowments can cope with. In other points they resemble Canadians, though better looking. Not that that's saying much. Maybe they're depressed because they have the silliest sounding language west of the Urals. Or maybe it's that they have the ugliest famous actress of any civilized nation. No use asking them; what with their silly sounding language and ugly actresses, it's almost impossible for them to get anything across to anyone. Swedes fuck a lot, but only in the missionary position. ..."

Week 37 - Christmas Countdown, First Sunday of Advent

This rip is on-line again as from 2010.

It’s the first of Advent and we light the first or our four advent candles in our Christmas Countdown. Each week you will get a whole album and then, come Christmas eve, Santa will bring you something really special.
As we light our first candle we’ll be listening to Dick Jacobs album The Electro-Sonic Orchestra (Coral). A really great piece of space age pop yet having to see a re-release. Dick not only used the theremin but also that fantastic instrument the Ondioline, a small keyboard instrument with a very special vibrato, invented in 1940 by Georges Jenny. There’s also some tape playback effects here to spice it all up. All in all a marvellous album.

1. Volare
2. Cry
3. Hey There
4. Tammy
5. Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini
6. Sincerely
7. Mack the Knife
8. Fascination
9. I´m Sorry
10. Little Things
11. Music
12. That´s My Desire

Gustaf Tenggren

"... Gustaf Tenggren was born in Sweden in 1896. Throughout the 1920s, he illustrated children's books and fairy tales in a richly detailed style similar to Arthur Rackham and Kay Nielsen. In 1936, Walt Disney brought Tenggren to Hollywood to work on Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs. His designs for the Dwarfs' cottage and the forest were directly incorporated into the film by the layout artists. ...
... This book, 'The Little Trapper', is one of Tenggren's least often seen titles. Published in 1950, several years before DIsney's Davy Crockett popularized the coonskin cap, this book includes some disarmingly beautiful paintings. "

Updated: Btw - here in Sweden we don't have thanksgiving nor do we eat stuffed turkey (hey! That's something I'm very thankfull for.). But we do have Mårtens afton [St Martin's Day] the 10th of November. We eat roasted goose. (At leasts this is a tradition we are very proud of here in Skåne, the part of Sweden where the PCL Headquarters resides. What P-E Fronning and other people coming from the northern parts of Sweden are having for dinner at St Martin's Day you'll have to ask him. An expensive hot dog at Stureplan?) Along with svartsoppa [black soup] (made from goose blood).
We just eat - no thanks, no nothing.
I love blood. Especially when it's hot and spicy.

" ... The ‘Environments’ series of records emerged in the mid-70s and most of them have yet to get a CD release. They occupy an ambiguous position between these two types of ambient soundworld. However, they should not be mistaken for those cringe-worthy CDs that are beige woodchip New Age twaddle mixed with whalesong. ‘Environments’ are recordings of natural phenomena, seamlessly electronically manipulated and processed to increase their psycho-acoustic impact. So, we don’t have a real-time ‘sound effect’ type recording, but neither is there much evidence of a composed musical recording with an artistic intent at its core. ...", at Snow Day:

Week 35/36 - Commercials - Mp3 Comp.

Note: The Commercials mp3 compilation is available once more as from 2010!

So, we’re off again.

No one seems to know anything about The Nilsmen. According to the backside text they were not only extremely talented but also asked to create a Winston sound by a group of Winston executives visiting Sweden: a land in which modern rationalism and overwhelming scenic beauty match in perfect harmony. Really? The single are from France and as far as the Nilsmen being Swedish we aren’t quite convinced. Anyway it’s a good track which makes smoking seem like fun again and a nice cover as well.

Loads of bands have done spots for Coca Cola, no surprise there as they can afford it. Our favourite take has to be the one with that welsh bull: Tom Jones and the one with a teenage Alex Chilton.
Ravi Shankar doing an anti-drug spot, why didn’t he tell the Beatles about this? What really happens to that yellow stuff on your teeth? Where does it go? Does Pepsodent really help? We keep pondering on these vital issues as we leave you with four rare radio promotion spots of some favourite bands LPs.

There seems to be basically three ways to go at it when doing product music. Either use a well known band and create credibility on that or rearrange a well known song or make your own song and hope it sticks. Take, for instance, Charlie Rich's song 'The Most Beautiful Girl in the World' and just replace "girl" for "wash" and you have a song for detergent. Or let the new recruits for cosmetic sales go marching in instead of the saints. Or take a popular dance song and twist it like Frito or just do your own dance song like 7-11. It’s not always that easy to do your own song often it fails on just ending up sounding joyously dumb, like 'Up Came Oil'. The big car manufacturers fares a bit better, like Fords two little ditties.

But no one comes near the high standards of Chevrolet who released one of the best car promotion songs in 1965: 'SS-396', as performed by Paul Revere & the Raiders. This song was penned by Lou Adessa and Vince Benay. A couple who earlier that year wrote what has to be the crowning glory of product music: 'Chevrolet Sings of Safe Driving and You'. Performed by some unknown studio band this album actually wants to show you not only the greatness of driving Chevrolet but also that the company really cares about you and how you drive. Given away for free by Chevrolet dealers it’s full of teary eyed and earnest songs and even a bit catchy now and then. A masterpiece in its genre, listen and learn (yes, it’s the whole LP).

7 Drinks of Mankind

Chris at Locust St. speaks at the Grand opening of '7 Drinks of Mankind': "As we enter the holiday season, our thoughts turn to drinking.
The inspiration for this series of posts comes from the book A History of the World in Six Glasses, by Tom Standage, in which the theory is ventured that human history, for the most part, can be summed up in the history of six types of beverages, with a seventh as an epilogue.
Our musical take on these seven drinks will be a group (and multi-national) effort--I'm drawing from some worthy constituents for extra songs and stories, and I think they've made this effort ten times greater than it would have been as a solitary one. In particular I want to thank the Rev. Frost of Spread the Good Word and Brian at Big Rock Candy Mountain, both of whom contributed massive numbers of songs to this project.
The first drink to explore is the happy product of John Barleycorn's marriage-- a garrulous, ancient individual with plenty of stories to share: beer. ..."

R.I.P. Link Wray

It's a sad, sad, sad, day here at the PCL Headquarters (as well as over at the HTMPL Office). Link Wray has passed away.
The King.
Most people refer to Elvis as the King - and they are not wrong. He was the King.
But Link Wray was the The KING OF ROCK. And he most certainly was The KING OF THE ROCK GUITAR. (Now, if you Google that sentence - "The KING OF THE ROCK GUITAR" - you will end up with this, and that is just ridiculous.)

"He is the King; if it hadn't been for Rumble, I would have never picked up a guitar." -- Pete Townsend
"If I could go back in time and see one concert it would be Link Wray and His Raymen" - Neil Young
"Rumble is the best instrumental ever.” - Bob Dylan

So Long Link Wray.
1929 - 2005

>Listen To Fire and Brimstone (YouSendIt) or get it Here (Momoshare) (Thanks To TOD at the Splusp Group for supplying the file)

Thread at GaragePunk.com - Forums.
The GaragePunk Blog also has an entry about this as well as 3 classic Link Wray Tracks.

An Article in Spanish.
An Article In Portuguese from Brazil's Folha Online.

Obituary published Friday in the Danish online news paper Politiken. And I especially like the words that are being quoted in the end of that article:
»Link Wray brændte igennem i aftes med al den trods, latter, kærlighed og power, han har i sig. En legende, lige så sikkert som Crazy Horse, en naturkraft som en tornado, en profet, der blindt hyler gennem støvet op mod solen om de fejringer og triumfer, der skal komme. Jeg så Link Wray, jeg så Amerika«
Powerful words if you understand Danish. And I do.
(According to this article he has already been buried at a private ceremony at Christians Kirke in Christianshavn, Copenhagen.)

__ T0ra ! T0ra ! T0ra ! __ posts this English Article based on the Danish artlicle in Politiken (and icludes some audio as well).

Olaf at Inaubile Cities: "...

Read the whole post here.
BoingBoing Entry.

Update II: All information supplied here about Link's death has one and the same source: This article in the Danish Politiken (which IS a reliable source). But I need more sources. I need more facts. Is there no other confimation about this sad news in other "official" places? Nowhere else in the press? I sure can't find any. And I'm a human search engine...

Update III: As I said we where just waiting for Reverend Frost's Tribute post to Link - and HERE it is! "... Well, I’ve learned guitar all by myself – with a little help from Mr Wray's records. I WANTED THAT SOUND AND THAT FEELING (Yeah something you will never understand you all Steve Vai fans) Armed with a 1953 Gibson Les Paul, a dinky Premier amp, an Elvis sneer and a black leather jacket, Link Wray was my hero. Simple . " (Oh, man, I get tears in my eyes reading this. Heavy.)
And of course also mp3s. Crank them up!

Update V: German media coverage: Article/Obituary in Netzeitung.de and another one in Kurier.at.

Update VI: Greg Laxton at Wray's Shack has made a major update on the Shack-page: he has posted pics and video clips of Link's final gig, as well a lot of other stuff. I guess you should keep an eye on the Wray's Shack if you want fresh information about Link and his death and want to stay updated from now on.

Update VII: Link's wife Olive and son Oliver have updated his website. You can read their goodbye here. (via Wrays Shack)

"... It is with the deepest sorrow that we have to inform Links dear fans that our beloved husband and father Link Wray has deceased November 5. 2005

In respect of Links wishes, he was buried in silence and privacy from the historic protestant Church: Christians Church in Copenhagen Denmark, Friday 18th of November 2005. with attendance of his family Olive and Oliver Wray.

Link passed away in their arms, safely in his home in Copenhagen, not ever aware that his heart was getting tired. This was the way he had told us, he wanted it. ..."

Last Update: The saddening news of Link Wray's death is now spreading all over the net and has finally become a news "item".
This entry will therefore carry no more updates.

My condolences and thoughts go out to the Wray family, relatives and friends of the Wray's and to all fans of pure rock'n'roll.

I thank you, dear PCL readers, for your patience. I needed to do this.

Statement: "As a result of prior professional experience in mechanical drawing and design, an affinity, with the period commonly referred to as the American Industrial Revolution, has evolved. In time, my attention has turned to the direct connection between it and the American amusement industry, which was born, of that “revolution”. It is, the invention of illusion and by extension, the impact the carnival, circus and amusement parks had on American culture at the turn of the century, that is at the foundation of my work.
