Delia Derbyshire - Dreams (1964) " ... a collage of people describing their dreams, set to a background of electronic sound. Dreams is a collection of spliced/reassembled interviews with people describing their dreams, particularly recurring elements. The program of sounds and voices attempts to represent, in five movements, some sensations of dreaming: running away, falling, landscape, underwater, and colour. ...", at Ubu Web Sound of course.

The Ivan Kral Vault

Ivan Kral (Patti Smith Group, Iggy Pop's band, composer and film maker etc.) has posted some short clips shot by him during life on the roads. Many of them lack sound. But they are still cultural artefacts worth viewing. See Iggy and his band mates rolling through Germany on the Party tour. Check out (some of) the guitars Ivan, Lenny Kaye and Patti herself used in the Patti Smith Group. See Chuck Berry (shot from a London taxi) passing a liqour store as he is sipping on a soda. See Johnny Rotten watching tv.

But most importantly - see Iggy on playground turtle!

Albert Ayler - The Psychedelic Boogaloo Years

The Hound writes about Albert Ayler: "was (and is) one of the most important jazz musicians of the 2oth century and perhaps along with John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman the greatest of the "free jazz" players who came to prominence in the 1960's. From his debut recording, a version of Gershwin's Summertime recorded in Sweden with a clueless Swedish bebop rhythm section attempting to follow him, in which he turns the tune inside out, braying and screeching out his inner turmoil, it drags the listener to the edge of pathos and leaves you drained. ..."

Passover? Easter?
Occasions to celebrate and reflect for many in our world.

In the spirit of Ange's special day, I invite all our loyal readers to post photo's/video's and reflections of the blessed innocent as offerings to this spiritual day.

Happy Day Ms. Overkill.

We Like Kiolbasa

It's a Must to hear the all-girl (at least until all the DNA tests comes back) polka band The Polka Powder Puffs Orchestra, from session 292 of Probe is Turning-on the People. Time for me to get cracking on that "animal sounds" mix, Rooster Polka would be a perfect intro! It's not just Terrific!, but Great! as well.

The Mystery of the Mystrys

The story of the Mystry's is the stuff of legend. Formed in 1966 by an enterprising Australian entrepreneur named Michael Kopp, the band was destined as the "next big thing" after the British Invasion phenomena. Mr. Kopp, thinking way too hard for an angle that would propel the band into the stratosphere came up with idea that the band would claim that they were from another planet. Alien names were assigned to the band members and their identity would remain an complete Mystry

Lead guitarist, Ziggy Zapata, bore the nickname "Kuff" (try it backwards) and bandmates sported "futuristic" costumes that were little more than green velvet hoods hurriedly stitched together with eye and mouth holes cut out.

Their crowning achievement was the single, "Witch Girl" backed by "Land of The Green Sun"

Predictably, the end of the road for the band was rife with bounced checks, police investigations and management abuses. Unmasked at last.

Linda's Film on Menstruation

Mady Heflin (daughter of Frances Heflin and Sol Kaplan and sister of director Jonathan Kaplan) plays a teenage girl riding her first menstrual cycle in Linda's Film on Menstruation (director Linda Feferman is also responsible for Seven Minutes in Heaven); character actor Jonathan Banks (he played the attendant who confiscates Dr. Lizardo's TV in Buckaroo Banzai) is also along for the ride.

This 1974 educational film, missing a few frames in the beginning, features attempts at humor, an unfocused plot, animation, person-on-the-street interviews and the Statue of Liberty — a mess, so yes it's really great.

PCL LinkDump will be replaced

Hi, gangsters!

PCL LinkDump is the name of these pages, and has been so for over 5 years and 7 months. What if "PCL LinkDump" was changed to another title?
What on earth could replace such a great homepage title?

I have decided to change. For a week that is. Just for kicks. For seven days this internet url will carry another title. Hopefully a cool one. I will design a new logo for the occasion.

Place your suggestions in comments and we'll have a vote in a couple of days.

Invasion of the 1970's Recreational Vehicles

Gilligan at Retrospace takes a look at 1970's Recreational Vehicles:
" ... They looked similar to home decoration, but the enclosed space makes it all the more shocking. It's almost too much to take in at once. It's an all out assault on the eyes; it's everything bad about 1970's decor condensed. ..."

No, he's not back. But that is the album title. He was probably back then. But that doesn't mean he's back now. Though he could be back later. But probably not. Anyway ...

First an Apology, and Then Some Boobs.

Dear readers,

It has recently come to our attention that we here at the PCL Braintrust let the weekend go by without marking what would have been the 88th birthday of American cinematic auteur Russ Meyer. We sincerely apologize for this deplorable oversight and wish to assure you that those responsible have been sacked, and that in their termination letters they were rebuked in the harshest possible language. The management of PCL LinkDump deeply regrets any inconvenience this may have caused and, as a token of our goodwill, we kindly offer the following Russ Meyer film trailers at no additional cost to you, our loyal readership.
