Hello All! Hello World!

I said well hello there, who knew that Doomsday would fall anywhere near a Tuesday, and who needs the Spoofity app when you’ve got another hour and 20 minutes of music from A Mouthful Of Pennies? So here’s   _Toss-Up_ the latest A.M.O.P. Mixtape!

This one feature’s “Lemonade” the closing song of Blind Melon’s 1995 (and technically final) record Soup.
This is an album that I’ve always held as one of the most brilliant and most under-appreciated of the nineties. I return to it again and again. Featuring funky riffs with a cosmic hillbilly tweak and a Dixie-twist, odd changes in time signatures, and Shannon Hoon’s sweet and sour lysergic lyrics that deliver their sentiments with a pin-point precision of images, it’s a real work of art. Speaking of delivery, I adore Hoon’s vocals with their giddy rasp as if his lungs were delirious to sing these songs. The album was recorded in New Orleans in 1994 with gifted producer/mixer/engineer Andy Wallace (that’s him eating soup on the LP cover). As this was after Hoon’s multiple stints in drug rehabilitation programs the city might not necessarily have been a healthy choice but it certainly lent itself to a truly dynamic body of work. This LP might be the closest the nineties ever came to producing something akin to the Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main St. It was truly adventurous with sound; shamefully they were not rewarded for it. Sadly, two months after the album’s release, Hoon was found dead in the band’s tour bus. This is a work that is dark and yet a delight to sing and dance along to. For example there’s the hopped-up banjo and kazoo jam “Skinned” written from the perspective of serial killer Ed Gein, and the haunting, melodic “Car Seat (God’s Presents)” about Susan Smith, who killed her children by driving her car into a lake in Union, South Carolina. Then there are these 3 fantastic singles (note that the”Galaxie” video features psychologist, writer, and psychedelic advocate Timothy Leary as the mad scientist,aka “Mr Time Warp”).

I do recall that in my younger days “Lemonade” served as a bit of a mantra or an ethos (not necessarily a healthy one) to help me navigate through the world:
There’s such a thing as self opinion
And this far down South I have no self-control
If anbody else feels like a nobody
Well then your gonna have to look out for you
I’ll color green everything believed in
But I keep screaming for my glass of lemonade
 –
I walk around and it feels good to be movin’
The breeze that’s blowin’ through cannot be found
Jump on the trolley that’s headed for all the hollering
And then you’re gonna have to look out for you
In desperate need of a little more religion
To nurse your God like point of view…
 –
Fool on the sheetroof you gotta lay down in your ruins
The river flowin’ by, is way too big to bound
If I should speak up, and say hello Mr. Uppercut
Oh, how nice to have avoided you
I’ll bloody bleed on everything I’m seeing
But I keep screaming for that glass of lemonade
 –
Too much, too much, too much Lemonade
Too much, too much, too much Lemonade
Too much, too much, too much Lemonade
Too much, too much, too much Lemonade
Too much, too much, too much Lemonade
On the MixTape there’s also “Buoyant” from Alela Diane’s brand new and truly wonderful record, Cusp.
Of the record she has said,“This music is about motherhood. Even just by saying that, it feels like people will write you off. It’s like you’ve suddenly lost the charm of being youthful and even attainable––you’ve been commoditized as available. There is not a big place in the music industry for 30-something women with kids making music. Maybe we can create that space.” I highly recommend this one.
You’ll also hear “Trafalgar Square” from Jonathan Wilson’s new record Rare Birds.
You might be more familiar with Wilson as the brilliant producer of the 3 Father John Misty records as well as the great Double Roses by Karen Elson released last year. Wilson’s own albums are most definitely worth checking out as well. So do that.

Well, there’s all this and a whole lot more! So…

Hello All! Hello World!

Well hello there, who needs the Spoofity app when you’ve got another hour and 20 minutes of music from A Mouthful Of Pennies? So come   _Settle Down Amongst The Blossoms_ the latest A.M.O.P. Mixtape!

 

This one features two fantastic tunes by Dolly Parton (one covered by the incredible singer Bettye LaVette). I just read about Parton’s Imagination Library program, which has donated 100 million books to children over the last 23 years! So good on her! She sure is talented. You’ll also hear Erykah Badu, two from Karen Dalton’s 1971, Harvey Brooks produced LP In My Own Time, and one of my favorite Bono vocal performances from back in 1999-2000. Speaking of vocals there’s an amazing one by Tina Turner (alongside her then husband Ike) doing a rendition of the Beatles’ 1969 single, Get Back. On a personal side-note (and it’s my blog so the whole thing is sort of a personal side-note) Tina Turner is the first woman I can remember being really physically attracted to, when I saw her as The Acid Queen in Ken Russell’s 1975 film based upon The Who’s 1969 rock opera album Tommy.

I must have been about 8 years old. What that says about me and my arrow I just don’t know, but it might at least explain why Beyond Thunderdome has always been my favorite of the Mad Max films.

Oh and there’s what to me is a delightful work by the brilliant artist Dory Previn. Along the same lines of Carolyn Elliott praising Jesus Christ as a “queer witch,” which really sounds nice to me; Previn sings:

Jesus was a androgyne
Jesus was a he and she
Jesus was a freako baby
Just like you and me
Jesus was a pagan
Jesus was a priest
Jesus was a beauty
Jesus was a beast

 

Well, there’s all this and a whole lot more! So…

Hello All! Hello World!

Well hello there, it’s time for a real  _GYP_ the latest A.M.O.P. Mixtape!

This one features two live Elvis performances as well as two versions of Dylan’s “Went To See The Gypsy” which is one of my favorite songs about Elvis Presley (another being “Tupelo” the 1985 track by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds).

We’ve also got “Camarillo Brillo” by Frank Zappa, which has been stuck in my head for a decade now. There’s also the lovely “Rainy Day” the 1970 track by Susan Christie (produced by John Hill), which seems appropriate considering the weather we’ve been having.

Oh and there’s a tune from Doug Randle’s 1971 LP Songs For The New Industrial State, a strange pop record that really calls to my mind Robert Downey Sr.’s brilliant 1969 film Putney Swope (on my list of top ten films of all time, really can’t recommend it enough).

 

Yeah there’s all this and a whole lot more! So…

THE DEMISE OF THE MASK (VOL 2)

Hello All.

Welcome to Volume Two of my new series of MixTapes: The Demise Of The Mask. –(Volume One here)__.

Here you’ll hear the suite of songs that open what was one of the best albums of 2014, The Silver Globe by Jane Weaver; and something from real honky-tonk talent Margo Price and her 2016 debut record Midwest Farmer’s Daughter (recorded at Sun Studio in Memphis and released on Jack White‘s Third Man Recordshere’s that pair performing together on “A Prairie Home Companion” back in October). You can groove as well to some of my favorite tunes by The Byrds, John LennonThe Brian Jonestown Massacre, Danny BrownSteve Harley & Cockney Rebel, and a whole lot more. Speaking of Cockney Rebel, there’s also a long prog workout by that group’s keyboardist Duncan Mackay, “12 Tone Nostalgia,” taken from his 1974 solo debut Chimera. Kevin Barnes‘ group of Montreal provide one of my favorite lyrics with their chorus of:

These amphibian days they will not heel to you
You can’t defy the defining flaw of your generation

Oh and for those who are left wondering just what words are used to create the hypnotic mantra in Moondog‘s 1971 round, “You The Vandal“:

you, the vandal, plunder the village as you will.
the earthworm will pillage you, the vandal, when you are under
