Hello All! Hello World!

I said well hello there. The last one had two tracks by Stockholm, Sweden band Mazarine Street from their second record, Thirteen Reasons to Believe. On this you’ll hear two from The Beast Of Mazarine Street, their 1996 debut. The little exotica noodle of “Rabbi” rolls right into their ballad “Let It Come Down,” which features guest vocals by Karin Dreijer who has gone on to achieve success with her solo project, Fever Ray. I’ve always loved the alloy of raunch and sadness expressed by this song’s lyrics, like:

 
So come down on my face
and I’ll eat you on the kitchen floor,
we get to the very core…
sick spirit and sticky teeth

You’ll also hear Big Mama Thornton doing her own gut-bucket, ass-kicking (literally) take on Memphis Minnie‘s “Black Rat Swing.” Big Mama Thornton was recorded in San Francisco on April 25, 1966, and is backed by Muddy Waters and his incredible band: James Cotton (harmonica), Otis Spann (piano), Sammy Lawhorn (guitar), Luther “Guitar Junior” Johnson (bass), and Francis Clay (drums). I recently read an incredible article on Big Mama Thornton written by Cynthia Shearer and published in the 18th annual Southern Music issue of The Oxford American. I highly recommend you give THE THINNING OF BIG MAMA a read.

[“Big Mama,” by Cathey Miller]

[Little Richard, by Charles Burns 1992]

You’ll also hear Little Richard backed by Johnny “Guitar” Watson and produced by Larry Williams. I’ll never understand why the material this incredible performer recorded for the Okeh label in 1966 & 1967 wasn’t a huge hit, as I think it’s all fantastic! For those who don’t quite understand the cultural significance of Richard Wayne Penniman I will share this little tid-bit:
In 1956, David Bowie was not yet ten and his father would bring home the recent hit singles that made bizarre but wholly thrilling rock ‘n’ roller Little Richard a star: “Tutti Frutti” and “Long Tall Sally.” Bowie later said that he had the sensational reaction of “My heart near­ly burst with excitement. I’d never heard anything even resembling this. It filled the room with energy and color and outrageous defiance. I had heard God.” Even as a little boy his ambition had been set to be “a white Little Richard…..or at least his saxophone player.”

Well, you’ll hear this as well as some fantastic Duke EllingtonIggy Pop with David Bowie and Simple Minds; something from Actor, the second album by St. Vincent, released in 2009; and a whole lot more! So…

Hello All! Hello World!

I said well hello there. When I was in high-school one of my all-time favorite bands was one almost no one ever heard of. At the time I didn’t know nor cared about the cultural, hipster cachet that could be angled from that fact; I just thought they made amazing music! I remember spending hours dancing and singing along to their records alone in my bedroom. Mazarine Street were from Stockholm, Sweden and my best friend’s uncle, Gene Kraut, was their manager and as their 3 records would come out (in 1996; 1997; and 2001) he would mail them over to the U.S. for him. (Gene would also come to manage Arthur Lee of the amazing sixties, Los Angeles based band Love, which is how I discovered them as well, and even saw Lee & Love perform for his Forever Changes Concerts at Warsaw in Brooklyn, on October 23, 2003…incredible!). If I had to describe Mazarine Street as akin to another sound I guess I would say they were something like nineties Beck tackling the thick rock & roll and rough blues of The Rolling Stones. There was something incredibly playful to their blues bravado and alcohol swagger. This good-humored gusto I think can be heard clearly on one of the two songs featured here and taken from their second record, Thirteen Reasons to Believe. With “One More Day” they present a traditional-sounding field holler blues but tweak it with the odd trill and wobble of a theremin.

On this mix you’ll also hear Beastie Boys‘ sonic tribute to Miles Davis‘ record On The Corner, with their very own “Bobo On The Corner,” which features percussionist Eric “Bobo” Correa (the son of famed Latin and jazz percussionist Willie Bobo, who is also featured elsewhere on the mix). This rolls right into the Beastie Boys’ oh-so-fun single of 1995 “Root Down,” which utilizes a sample from Jimmy Smith‘s “Root Down (And Get It)” (a song that was featured in these pages way back on April 11th 2014 on my triptych party-mix On The Good Blood).

This MixTape also features a Blind Melon tune I mentioned a few posts back, the hopped-up banjo and kazoo jam “Skinned” written from the perspective of serial killer Ed Gein (and what I always took as lead singer and lyricist Shannon Hoon‘s somewhat demented, metaphorical commentary on his own issues with addiction and substance abuse). Elswhere you’ll hear Blind Melon’s “Dumptruck,” where Hoon sings with more than a hint of anxiety: “New York City soothing my itchy itchy month of May.”

Oh and I can’t go without making mention of a song that has been a favorite of mine for decades: “Manifold de Amour” by Latin Playboys. Latin Playboys was an experimental group comprising David Hidalgo, Louie Pérez (from the band Los Lobos) ,along with the production partners of Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake. Taken from their 1994, self-titled debut album, I translate the hypnotic lyrics of “Manifold de Amour” as:

I’m going to sail
To the port of the soul
Crossing the sea,
Until I arrive

 

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

The Donor
–Judee Sill
I’ll chase ’em to the bottom
Till I’ve finally caught ’em
Dreams fall deep
Where voices come a-chimin’
Moanin’ and a-rhymin’
Warning me
Their words are ringin’ and a-whinin’
Hear ’em weep
Songs from so deep
While I’m sleepin’
Seep in
Sweepin’ over me
Still the echo’s achin’
“Leave us not forsaken”
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, eleison
Eleison, eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
So sad, and so true
That even shadows come
And hum the requiem
O waters of the moon
Your vapors swirls and swoon
Your wake is wide
And sorrow’s like an arrow
Shootin’ straight and narrow
Aimin’ true, it’s sting goes
Reachin’ to the marrow
Silence cried
Now songs from so deep
While I’m sleepin’
Seep in…
Sweepin’ over me
Still the echo’s achin’
“Leave us not forsaken”
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, eleison
Eleison, eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
So sad, and so true
That even shadows come
And hum the requiem

Hello All.

Welcome to the latest A.M.O.P. Mixtape: (Dominion) Swords, Cups, and Other Accouterments. I must say this and the prior ([A Crush Of Curtains]:) have been my favorite mixtapes I’ve created in awhile, in terms of feeling like I achieved a mood and texture I envisioned at the get-go. I think it’s pretty clear at this point that I don’t often use the platform of this blog to make party-mixes, but more likely create MixTapes to listen to when alone, such as driving, walking, or when attempting some form of artistic expression. I listened to today’s mix while driving through a beautiful but torrential downpour and I found it to be a great compliment. I hope you dig it and find a use for it too.

Also below you’ll find an updated list of things I read (or re-read) so far since January of this year, 2017. You’ll find the more recent things towards the bottom. These are works that I truly enjoyed and/or loved. I highly recommend them all!
