Some Situation and Sunder During Days Eight  

         Thru Fourteen On The Abundant Earth

.——————–

The recluse,

in his swollen tower,

sings of the indigo evenings and the soft hour

our

lives are spent searching thirsty for.

.

Leaning over the parapet

of his tower, the recluse gets

irate at this metropolis

of candles lit, and so, with lips

pursed, he spits, this done with the hopes

to extinguish at least one single flame tethered by a black wick.

.

D

O

W

N

.

.

.

Out in the field, beasts of the earth consume vegetable meat;

Lilith completes another cruel labor, amniotic

fluid and blood splattered on her ankles, on her bare feet.

Anticipating from Adam an alimony check,

she lies prostrate in the dust, braids her raven tresses, waits,

and proceeds to procreate her sundown breed

within vision of Eden’s combustion gate .

.

Bill Whistle

and The Skeleton Crew

sketch, with fingers broken,

undergarments below

emerald gowns

on

the ladies of passing fashion.

.

Poor Lester

gets his rest while within

the convalescent tents

pitched amongst the vapor

caravans

that

roll along a paper trail of tears.

He is hoping for a cure

for his tuberculosis.

Still, when asked “how’s it goin?” he’ll say

“Everything is coming up roses.”

.

Thessaly

entered the gallery

with her wardrobe bible

tucked under her left arm,

while all the double-parked cars sat idle

in the warm sunset soot of monoxide armor.

.

She possessed

elaborate aesthetics,

like an ornate train wreck,

meticulous design,

down to each

fine

detail: her eyes, blue steel off the rail;

all else, fluid limbs of collision flames;

curves of metal awry, out of reach.

                                                           The cathedral bells knell for Monday morning mass

Preserved in

fluids, a scorpion

serves as a belt buckle,

where her two thumbs are hooked

over the amber glass.

One and all

look.

She ensnares every pliant eye

in the iron of her gestures.

.

The Recluse drops his cowboy boot’s wooden heel upon a cockroach

.

Poor Lester

coughs blossoms of blood from the lungs when he sees this blonde disaster.

The skeletal cool kids abscond behind a magazine curtain,

where they all paint their sex organs with the scent of neon cologne.

Bill’s jaw drops as his lips fall slack, and he remains stuck uncertain.

He could not help but rubberneck and question the motives, divine,

in the bedlam of her approach.

A MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES PRESENTS: RADIO DETRITUS

HELLO ALL! I’ve got a double mixtape here for you today, so you should be able to chew on this awhile! Keep an ear out, as these actually feature two of my all time favorite tunes: Harry Nilsson’s “The Moonbeam Song” and “All The King’s Horses” by Aretha Franklin (my, how I would have loved to have heard Jeff Buckley do a rendition of the latter). Oh and here across the 2 mixes there’s the whole Rolling Stones/Claudine Longet connection to dig.

Anyway, as always

‘CAUSE IT’S A MOTHER

funkydrummer

 

FUNKY DRUMMER——-(CLICK TO LISTEN)

(Like it? Buy it)

Hello All,

Today I present a song that I’m sure the majority of you are familiar with in one form or another. I say that with confidence because as hip hop and other sample-based electronic music came prominently onto the scene over a decade after this track’s initial release, this extended vamp by James Brown and the JB Orchestra has gone on to be one of (if not) the most-sampled recordings in history.

However, if you’ve never actually listened to “Funky Drummer” in its entirety you certainly should, as it is a rhythmic expression of pure joy, and an exceptional one at that!

Recorded on November 20th, 1969 at King Studios in Cincinnati, Ohio, “Funky Drummer” was originally released as a two-part 45 in March of 1970. In the period between 1965 and 1975, Brown had 65 songs in the R&B top 40, and 44 of them reached up into the top 10. Over on the pop charts for those same years, Brown had 37 top 40 hits, 6 in the top 10 (Sisario, 2011). As “Funky Drummer” only reached No. 20 On the R&B charts, it was somewhat of a forgotten tune before being revived with its aforementioned prevalence as a sample. With this revival came its first album release, in its 9:13 full-on funk form with the 1986 compilation record, In the Jungle Groove.

In The Jungle Groove

James Brown introduced the world to his “funk-bag” when, incorporating second line feel and “The One Beat” into his R&B sensibilities, he “subordinated harmonic development and traditional pop song form to the increasingly dense rhythmic fabric of the groove” (Doleac, 2013). And groove it does!

(photo by Dan Quest Studio, 1969)

Every now and then a clear harmonic cry gave new suggestions

of a tune that would someday be the only tune in the world and

would raise men’s souls to joy.”

–      Jack Kerouac, On the Road, Part 3, Ch. 10

Can you not feel that joy?— as the band—flowing along with the little forward hops of “Sweet” Charles Sherrell’s bass and the ring-a-ding-licks of Jimmy Nolen’s guitar revolving within the slow-pour carnival of Brown’s organ while the intervals of Maceo Parker’s tenor saxophone sway out from the interlocked click-clack-grace of Stubblefield’s drums and the reliable swagger of the other horns (Eldee Williams, Fred Wesley, Joseph Davis, Richard Griffith)—all together perform a nimble side-step out from the gyral patterns of rhythm and finally succumb to James Brown’s insistence that they:

Turn Over

Turn Over

Turn Over

Soulful Rover

Take me in the change

Take me in the change

Take me in the change

 

They land right back in that loop, but it’s different. They make a deft somersault in place (nothing too flashy); one that surreptitiously takes the ground beneath their feet with them so that even though the whole world has turned, you might have missed it if it weren’t for that sudden swell of elation. James Brown once said of himself…although he wasn’t truly talking about himself at all:

“JAMES BROWN is a concept, a vibration, a dance. It’s not me, the man. JAMES BROWN is a freedom I created for humanity.”

JB drummer “Jabo” Starks has said, “So many things that were done weren’t written, because you just couldn’t. You couldn’t write that feel. Many, many times we’d just play off each other, until James would say, ‘That’s it!’” (Weinger & White, 1991). J.B.’s’ trombonist Fred Wesley would later say “The first rule when you went to work for James Brown: watch James Brown” (Weinger & White, 1991). This rule is demonstrated by the song’s most celebrated moment, which arrives roughly four and a half minutes into the recording and which supplies the tune with its namesake. James Brown tells the band: “Fellas, one more time I want to give the drummer some of this funky soul we got going here.” Brown then turns his attention to eighteen-year-old drummer Clyde Stubblefield, who modern drummer extraordinaire  Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson has called “the most effective drummer that James Brown has ever utilized” (Sisario, 2011). Ever in charge, always directing traffic, James Brown soulfully suggests: “You don’t have to do no soloing, brother, just keep what you got… Don’t turn it loose, ’cause it’s a mother.” And with that, break beat history will be made!

There is nothing demanding about this tune, there is no challenge put before you. You get the sense that they could do it all day and never get bored; somewhere, after the fade-out, the group is still vamping along. It’s easy. It’s all simply an invitation for you to strut your stuff, feel good and go for a stroll—and if this doesn’t help you stroll on over to the other-side of this frost-coated mid-week hump, then I don’t know what will.

As a bonus—for those interested in learning a bit more on how a 7th grade drop-out raised in a whorehouse in Augusta, Georgia went on to become Mr. Dynamite, then Soul Brother No. 1, before eventually being hailed as The Godfather of Soul—here’s Jeremy Marre’s excellent 2003 documentary for PBS’s American Masters series: James Brown: Soul Survivor.

thought-form of the Music of Gounod, according to Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater in Thought Forms (1901).

Music can take a man along the Path. Music is the image and the foreshadowing of the harmony that pervades the world and organizes its secret hierarchies. The motions of the spheres in the heavens are in conformity to harmony and proportion, so that, though their passage is made in perfect silence, that passage is musical. The Adept who seeks to make his life a work of art will comport himself in conformity with the harmony that is in all things. Even today’s debased popular ditties, redolent as they are of vaudeville shows and dance halls, speak of higher truths. As Sir Thomas Browne put it, music “is a Hieroglyphical and shadowed lesson of the whole World.”

—Dr. Felton in Satan Wants Me by ROBERT IRWIN (1999)

HELLO ALL,

I’ve got quite a treat for you today! Emanating from and expanding upon the last mix—A Prayer For The New Year of The Tender HorseI present the triptych: Tulpa Honey. Bouncing upon that liminal spot where what-could-be and what-should-be converge with what-is, these three mixtapes also address a whole lot of what I’ve had rolling around in my head lately.

Be sure to snatch up all three for the full thought-form experience!

A MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES & BEAN PRESENT: BEAN STEW: VOL. I & 2

 

Hello All!

I know, “back so soon?…,” but today’s post is for a good cause! The good ladies of BEAN (Bushwick Eco Action Network) asked me if I could put together an entertaining two hours of music to serve as the background sound for the Fall Mixer they’re throwing this evening: B.E.A.N. STEW!

———————————————- — – – –  –  –   –    –  –  –  –  ————————–

Calling All Bushwick Cultivars, Permies, Gardeners, Farmers, Environmental activist, Organizers, Community leaders and the Eco-curious!

Join us for the Bushwick Eco-Action Network’s Fall Mixer.
Sunday, September 29th from 5-7pm, join us in the lovely garden of Fritzl’s Lunch Box at 173 Irving Avenue.

Come meet amazing groups and individuals who are working hard to do a little good in New York City. Permaculture enthusiasts, community farm members, hydroponic specialists, food co-op organizers, recycling leaders, environmental justice advocates and you, coming together for a sweet happy hour. We are all working hard to realize a better world and a better New York City. Let’s get together in a relaxed and joyous environment to share, mingle and have a few laughs!

Fun raffles prizes include discounts at farm-to-table restaurants, bars with local brews, workshops and more! Happy hour with $2.50 beers! RSVP here.

See you there!

173 Irving Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11237

———————————————- — – – –  –  –   –    –  –  –  –  ————————–

(Other than being what a great deal of my wife’s energy goes towards) the Bushwick Eco Action Network (BEAN) provides a forum for ecological observation, exchange, organizing and action.  Inspired by the principles of Permaculture, they seek to create a more balanced urban ecosystem in relationship to Bushwick’s neighborhood growth. — You can learn more about BEAN and see what they’re up to over here….

…Or, you can come on out to Fritzl’s Lunch Box this evening, Sunday, September 29th, to chit-chat and chew-the-fat face-to-face, y’know, the old-fashioned way.

I hope you all can make it out for this fun meeting-of-the-minds, and I hope you all enjoy the tunes I’ve assembled for this 2 volume MixTape for a mixer. I didn’t have too much free time to finely stitch all these together, so there’s certainly some loose threads and a rough patch-job or two, but I’m sure you can dig it! …On a more personal note, I can already hear Autumn creeping in to my taste. Anyway, thanks, and as always–

–Enjoy yourself-

A MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES PRESENTS: SUDDEN DOGS

Hello All,

And the A Mouthful Of Pennies Consortium’s Summer Blow-Out Wholesale Bootleg MixTape Distribution continues! Everything Must Go!

The last MixTape—THE MYTH OF A ROOM—might have been a little too high-falutin’ for some; so, today I present a good ol’ fashion slap-dash quick one for sitting under the afternoon sun with friends and perhaps breaking into a sing-along or two. Sloppy at points and reminding me of a MixTape I might’ve made 10-15 years back (like on an actual tapedeck), this one should be a breeze to roll along to and comes with its own custom-built comedown! …(and another bootleg, grandma with a computer cover art.)

Oh, and don’t forget to checkout some other dope MixTapes posted up in these pages: Longevity Has its Place ; El Ambiente Bien Babes Y Bean de Uruguay: Volume 1Broken Tail-Feathers; The Two Cent Spit; Babylon Bye Bye; and the Nas birthday tribute, Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones is Like…
