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…

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
