Burnt Noodle - Next Exit (2006, US, psychedelic) 
Tuesday, May 12, 2009, 12:55 AM - Music, - US, English
Paul Lamb sent me a cd of his band Burnt Noodle. A real gem. Very nice 1969 improvisations, based on well composed songs. Most tracks start with a song and ends in a long improv. Listen to it. I can hear influences of Jimi Hendrix (Electric Ladyland), Amon Düül II, Doctor John the Night Tripper and Ginger Baker's Air Force.
There are even videos on YouTube: Jim Meets the Space Aliens and Day by Day.



1 bipolar [6:01]
2 day by day [5:24]
3 on & on [10:54]
4 road flick [8:35]
5 uncap your brain [6:32]
6 jim meets the space aliens [14:54]

I wish more people would send me cd's like this one...

Jah Wobble and the invaders of the heart @ Later with Jools Holland 
Saturday, March 28, 2009, 12:50 PM - Music, - UK, English
I found this between my old video tapes.
'The sun does rise' and 'Amor' at 'Later with Jools Holland'.
I don't now which year, but probably 1994.

Dodelijk materiaal en kortegolfklanken 
Wednesday, February 11, 2009, 02:31 PM - Music, - NL, Personal, Nederlands
Tijdens mijn vakantie ontving ik een email van vriend Peter. Hij was in een koffiezaak de krant aan het lezen waarin een artikel stond over de heruitgave van 'Anthology of Dutch Electronic Tape Music'. In dat artikel werd een stukje uit deze blog (vertaald) geciteerd.
Hij stuurde deze foto, gemaakt met zijn iphone:



Gelukkig had vriend Theo de krant nog ergens thuis liggen en kon me een scan sturen van het hele artikel. Klik hierboven op het kiekje voor de scan. Of lees de on-line versie op de site van de schrijver Frits van der Waa .

Ik had de officiële cd's al gekocht tijdens de presentatie daarvan in het Bimhuis. Zou u ook moeten doen, bij Basta: www.bastamusic.com.

Fashion - Product Perfect CD (2008, UK/US, new wave) 
Sunday, November 23, 2008, 11:38 AM - Music, - UK, - US, English
In an old post I gave up hope to ever get the first fashion lp on cd. To my surprise Luke James, the singer of the band, mailed me a couple of weeks ago that he was releasing this cd.



There are different (single?) versions of Fashion and Bike Boys on the cd.
You can buy it from his MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/fashionlukesky for only $10 + $2,50 p&p.
He lives in California now, the lucky bastard.

1 Product Perfect [3:51]
2 Die in the West [4:13]
3 Red, Green & Gold [4:49]
4 Burning Down [3:33]
5 Big John [2:01]
6 Hanoi Annoys Me [2:56]
7 The Innocent [2:30]

9 Fashion [2:53]
10 Don't Touch Me [2:59]
11 Bike Boys [5:27]

A rare tracks cd has soon to be followed, as a cd with brand new songs will.

Walter Murch - THX 1138 (1970, US, not electronic) 
Monday, January 21, 2008, 12:45 AM - Music, - US, English
This is *not* the official soundtrack of Lalo Schifrin.

I recorded the sound of this first movie of George Lucas on my tape recorder with a microphone near the tv speaker when it was broadcasted on television, around 1973 I think.
I listened to this beautiful futuristic soundscape again and again. Till my tape recorder broke and was replaced by a cassette deck.

Some years ago THX 1138 came out on dvd, and it had a special feature: the soundtrack without the actors voices. A pity was, that also the voices of the electrogod and robocops were removed, which were essential for the atmosphere to me.
So I made my own mix where I brought back the voices of the cops and godmachine. I divided this mix more or less into the chapters of the movie.



Another extra on the dvd were comments from Walter Murch you could jump to during the film. I extracted these explanations, removed the ehh's and ahh's, added some sound references and included them too.
