De Dommedaris - Doe Maar Dom!! (1995, NL, carnaval) 
Sunday, February 18, 2007, 06:57 PM - Music, - NL, Fun, Nederlands
Het is weer carnaval in het zuiden, ik zou het bijna vergeten. Vroeger kreeg je altijd een waarschuwing in de vorm van ranzige 'hollandse' liedjes op de radio. Die tijd is gelukkig voorbij. Tenminste dat denk ik, ik luister nooit meer naar de radio.
In 1995 probeerden beeldend kunstenaar Jurriaan van Hall en muzikant Ivo Jansen op de Haar nog een hit te scoren met Doe Maar Dom!! Helaas te laat, de tijd van carnavalskrakers was voorbij. In dit geval jammer, vooral de Ddl No-Fi mix is dolle pret. Een soort Rubberen Robbie, maar nog leuker.

Bakersfield Boogie Boys - Okie from Muskogee (1980, US, new wave/weird) 
Wednesday, January 3, 2007, 06:36 PM - Music, - US, Fun, English
On this 12" the Bakersfield Boogie Boys covered the red neck Merle Haggard song Okie from Muskogee in a way Devo did with (I can't get no) Satisfaction.
Get off my cloud (Rolling Stones) and I get around (Beach Boys) got a more Flying Lizards like treatment, not at least caused by the flat voice of Shari Famous. Flying Tigers is an original song with wah-wah guitar and Jack Bruce bass, so it occasionally sounds like Cream, but it's not Ginger Baker who is drumming.
Okie from Muskogee first appeared on Devotees, a tribute-album before that word existed. It later appeared on the sampler Tales from the Rhino 2.

1 - Okie from Muskogee [2:01]
2 - Get off my cloud [2:22]
3 - I get around [2:16]
4 - Flying Tigers [3:30]



From the back sleeve text:
The Bakersfield Boogie Boys originally appeared on the Devotees album (composed of bands sounding like Devo) performing a strange, Devo-like version of "Okie From Muskogee." Many, like Los Angeles New Wave deejay Rodney Bingenheimer, thought the group was Devo in disguise. Rumors to the contrary, the Bakersfield Boogie Boys are in actual fact three young men from Bakersfield, California.
Citing influences of Devo, the Vanilla Fudge, early Frank Zappa and late Marianne Faithful, the BBB consider themselves slightly out-of-place with the country and western confines of their hometown. "We're a rarity for Bakersfield," says bassist Billy Joe Conrad, "because none of us know anyone related to Buck Owens."
By day Conrad works at a library, guitarist Jimmie Lee Grabert at a paint store, and drummer Gary Hoffman at Der Wienerschnitzel. The band has been rehearsing for almost a year, but live performances so far have been limited to a few appearances in their area. The members hope to make enough money from the sale of this record to purchase a synthesizer, and perhaps move to the Van Nuys area, granting them access to Los Angeles' flourishing club scene.

De Minuut van Ruud (Jaap Aap Show - Media-Mangel, 1989) 
Tuesday, December 26, 2006, 06:53 PM - Fun, Nederlands
Vanochtend zag ik op YouTube een herhaling van de Jaap Aap Show van Andre van Duin bij een of ander Gala met Jos Brink. Dat deed me er aan denken dat bij mij nog een heel stel afleveringen op een plank staan te verpieteren.
Daarom ben ik aan't digitaliseren geslagen en de komende tijd zet ik alle Minuten van Ruud die ik heb on-line.



Voor degene die niet weet waar het over gaat:
Andre van Duin had een programma 'Animal Crackers' waarin hij dieren in de dierentuin stemmen gaf. Daarin kwamen ook apen voor, waarvan 1 een eigen programma kreeg: De Jaap Aap Show. In dat programma was plaats ingeruimd voor minister president Ruud Lubbers: de Minuut van Ruud. Dit waren beelden van toespraken van Lubbers waar Andre van Duin zijn eigen mond in had gemonteerd.
Het was een beetje de Dik Voormekaar show op tv.

Ik geef op deze blog een seintje wanneer alles on-line staat.
Andre van Duin komt binnenkort met een nieuwe serie Animal Crackers op de televisie.

Mr John Dowie - Another Close Shave (1977, UK, weird) 
Monday, December 25, 2006, 06:35 PM - Music, - UK, Fun, English
I saw John Dowie once on a festival. With another guy, they introduced each other as Mr. John Dowie. They did a song called 'Only Men Shave', as opposed to 'Only Women Bleed' which was a hit for Julie Covington at that time.



He hated the Dutch, but I loved him.
Later on he worked a lot together with Neil Innes (Bonzo Dog, Monty Python, Ruttles).

Adrian Munsey - The Lost Sheep (1979, UK, weird) 
Sunday, December 24, 2006, 06:24 PM - Music, - UK, Fun, English
Weird record. It is not clear to me if was meant that way when it was recorded. Adrian still makes melancholy music with his orchestra as you can hear and see on his website.



Somebody posted the video on YouTube. Mr Munsey impersonates his sheep here.
(the original video is removed, so I linked to another version)

Not shared anymore. Complaints received.

The Mad Mystery Sound - It's a Super-Spectacular Day (1979, US, weird) 
Saturday, December 23, 2006, 11:25 PM - Music, - US, Fun, Personal
According to Wikipedia this is a multisided record. Strange name, it is only playable on one side, but it has at least seven grooves. Each groove has it's own version of the same song. They all start the same but the ends are different. Which version you hear depends on where the stylus of your turntable starts. The flexi disc was included in an American edition of Mad magazine in 1980. I digitised the seven versions of the song I could discover on this record.
