VaCLaV NeLhybeL - OUteR SPaCe MuSiC PfoLkWaYS eL Pee ( 1959 )
“iNGeNiOUS use of echo, artificial reverberation & electronic alterations gives the music in this category a weird, spooky futuristic, “out of this werld” quality, well suited to super-natural happenings of any kind. Piano, drums, and electronic instruments are used to achieve the strange atmosphere and spatial sounds.”

RaNdaLL McCLeLLaN – GeNeSiS ( 1974 ) PRoTo-iNduSTRiaL AVaNT ELeCkTRoNiSChe!

Posted in audio,mp3,music,Uncategorized by ynot on the July 3rd, 2008

RaNdaLL McCLeLLaN - GeNeSiS ( 1974 ) PRoTo-iNduSTRiaL AVaNT ELeCkTRoNiSChe!
here’s one that’s i guess purty obscure & deserves sum attn ( again, iMNSho… )
th’ liner notes on th’ back…GeNeSiS, as its name implies, is an electronic interpretation of the formation of the universe, the earth, the elements of air, fire & water, the emergence of life culminating in the appearance of man. Yet it goes beyond the Biblical story. for though it is humanly oriented it is so only in the sense of human life as a manifestation of universal life forces. For me GeNeSiS serves as a reminder of the cyclical nature of our universe, that the forces which converged to create life here will eventually bring about its extinction only to merge again in some distant time & space to begin the cycle once more.

GeNeSiS was completed in 1971 but since then has undergone several transformations. It reached its final form at the electronic music studio of Hampshire College in the Spring of 1974.

By contrast, iNTeRRuPTiONs is a purely abstract piece composed in the late Summer & early Fall of 1971. It was completed on November first, just five days before its scheduled first performance. Three agonizing months were spent on the first five minutes, while the remaining ten minutes took but ten days. The first performance of iNTeRRuPTiONs was itself interrupted by a malfunctioning tape recorder in the first two minutes of the piece. When it was announced that there would be a slight delay to repair the machine the audience broke into laughter and applause, thinking the interruption was an arranged piece of theater. I never clarified whether that was or was not the case. Randall McClellan

Randall McClellan is professor of music & director of the EleCTRoNiC MuSiC STudio at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. He studied at the College Conservatory of Cincinnati and at the Eastman School of Music. His principle teachers have been Scott Huston, Bernard Rogers, and Wayne Barlow.

yr editor here, in duin some nominal internet phishery, i’ve been able to gleen that Randall McClellan may indeed still be Prof @ Hampshire College…
but it’s been 34 yrs so i dunno…
yu can however p/u his book The Healing Forces of Music: History, Theory, and Practice cert looks innarresting… if yu GooGLe his name you’ll come across a buncha students who studied under his tutelage… all looks innarresting, but th’ most innarresting is www.orchidspangiafora.com with ref t’ byron coley in ’75 ( i remember hitting this site a few yrs ago when th’ pic was up.. a smiling hirsute hippy-ish foto if i’m correct ) i’d never heard th FLEE PAST’S APE ELF eL Pee but i sure am intrigued if anyone can pass it along pls pheel phree t’ get in contact…

anyway back to this rekkid… i wanna stress here that iT MaY STiLL be AVaiLaBLe… fum The GooGLe SeaRch

i wanna end here by also including th’ FaNTaSTiC OPuS ONe ManiFeSTo about th’ PhiLoSoPhy of ReCoRd PReSSing…
“A frequent problem many record buyers discover when playing a new record is an audibly excessive amount of surface noise and crackling at the beginning of the side. These defects can often be seen as well as heard. The scratches and abrasions generally result from careless handling of the still soft plastic as it is removed from the press at the manufacturer.

After incurring the indignation of many record pressing plants throughout the United States by suggesting that these manufactureres exercise more control over and care in the pressing, OPuS ONe has arrived at a truly unique and amicable alternative: the longer lead-in spiral (blank, unrecorded space) at the beginning of each side. By increasing the unrecorded area most susceptible to damage from rough handling by human fingers at this critical post-pressing time, whatever imperfections that may normally occur in this geographical location will not extend to the recorded portion.” whew!

and then there’s th’ Rekkid Care FiL-OS-o-phee…
“Your OPuS ONe records should receive this simple care so that you may expect many years of excellent fidelity from them:
* wipe sufaces gently with a slightly dampened sponge or soft cloth before playing or storing
* never rub a dry cloth over the grooves
* store each disc in the plastic lined inner sleeve which comes with each album, in order to minimize dust settling into the grooves
* keep the complete album in the loose plastic bag in which it was originally packaged and away from dust or grit
* prevent albums printed with fluorescent inks from remaining in the sunlight or other bright lighting for long periods
* use a sterephonic needle in good condition only, when playing a stereophonic disc, monophonic needles will shorten the lifespan of any stereophonic grooves”

Si! i CoNCuR!!! of course there is always the online controversy of ‘wet playing’…
of which i am a proponent of…
which was even accorded a govt report! get th’ PDf file here

UK PuNk / D.i.Y. PoST-PuNQue SiNGLes VoL 1 ( 1977 – 1988 )

Posted in audio,mp3,music by ynot on the July 1st, 2008

starting off /w/ staff members of the LiGhTNiNG LaBeL…
HoRRoRCoMiC – “ALL HuNG UP ON PieRRPOiNT” b/w “EXoRCiST”
& “SeX in The AFTeRNooN”
( 1977 LiGhTNiNG BCS-007 )
HoRRoRCoMiC - ‘EXoRCiST!’ 1977 HiPPy PuNK!
‘quickie punk exploitation kash-in’ that still ( mostly ) stands th’ test ‘o’ time…
LiGhTNiNG along /w/ RaW were among th’ furst UK labels that i remember had people scrambling to complete th’ holes in their respective discographies…
that was in 1981 when Paul Poplawski & i were ‘hanging out’ & helping @ Mad PLaTTeRs… of course by then there was already a v. dedicated ‘fan market’ for anything on STiFF & ChiSWiCk too… Paul was already starting to get into th’ HC scene…
he had written to TeSCo Vee i think somewhere round then…
but i digress… i’ll be picking up more about Paul & i in th’ EaRLy 80s in future posts…
anyway… back to 1977 UK PuNk… yu can read more ’bout HoRRoRCoMiC here…
i think this is a kewl pink fairies inspired slab ‘o’ wax…

next up is a ( iMNSho ) WaY kewl ‘PoWeR PEaRLs’ single fum ’79…
PuRe PRoduCT – “ReJeCTiON” b/w “SuGaR PLuM”
( 1979 Teen Dreems Streets Ahead Label SA-2 )
PuRe PRoduCT - 1979 PoWeR PEaRLs CLaSSiC!
it also has a bit more of a ‘hard rock’ edge to it…ToTaLLy KaTChy RiFFs /w/ killer gtr!
an XLNT 2-Sider… no real info on ’em that i’ve ever been able to find… SO…
Pete Hooker Bass
Chris Page Guitars
Phil Rainford Vocals
Andrew Ratcliffe Guitars
Dugald Somerville Drums
here is yr chance… pls step up & take yr rightful place in history…
fer an unheralded ( until now that is ) classic one-shot (? ) single!
it’s not even listed @ th’ 70’s UK PuNk/NeW WaVe DaTabaSe
( whoever is behind this site is also an unrecognized ‘god’… pls get in touch! )
despite it’s chaotic organization – like i should talk! –
it’s a treasure trove fer endless poking about…

ALSo fum ’79…
The RoMfoRd SToMPeRs – “DEad GiRLs” b/w “HaPPy MaRy & KeN”
( 1979 RoTT LaBeL RoTT-1 )
The RoMfoRd SToMPeRs - “DEad GiRLs” b/w “HaPPy MaRy & KeN” ( 1979 RoTT LaBeL RoTT-1 )
yu can see ( only slightly ) more info ’bout this ‘un here
Th’ A-Side sorta reminds me of PiSToLs meets…
The STRaNGLeRs ( Bass heavy alal JJ Burnel )
th’ fLiP is ( i believe wrongly ) attributed as a ‘SPLiT ReLeaSe’…
i think it’s th’ same guys…
jester trying a diff formula that was also then popular…
‘kash-in kol wav’… a bit ‘goofy’ but still ‘ok’ fer a lark…
Phil Harding became a somewhat sought after producer in th’ latter half of th’ 80s…
i sold a fair amnt ‘o’ those nutzer ebb rekkids to..
the then trendy ‘industrial dance club kids’…

by 1980 punk had exploded into a myriad of different often conflicting styles…
here is a ‘punk-ish’ new wave / femme power pop single…
i believe it’s purty durn ‘rare’…
RePoRteRS – “SCooP” b/w “NBZ” ( 1980 G.W. Rekkids LaBeL G.W. 1 – S/80/CUS 837 )
RePoRteRS - “SCooP” 1980 GW Rekkids LaBeL SooPR RaRe ObSCuRe UK FeMMe PuNk WaVe 7iNch 45!
it’s sorta easy t’ hear that this was ultimately too late…
fer th’ trend that it was likely aimed for…
Th’ A-side ( i believe ) still stands up purty well…
good hooks & chorus propel it along ‘in a bouncy way’…
th’ B-side is def a product ‘o’ over sentimentality… y’ may wanna skip it…
unless y’ wanna cry in yr beer…
still… fer fans ‘o’ LeNe LoViCh this is quite an acceptable ‘knock-off’…
whoever Jan/Waldron credited on “SCOOP”… Cohen/Waldron on “NBZ” were…
may remain a mystery…
i’m gonna take a guess that G.W. Label is ( GeoRGe? / Geoff? ) Waldron…
Produced by Phil Sharp… according to note scribbled on sleeve…
‘Looking for distribution…’ & on th’ other side th’ fone # is again circled…
with th’ added notation ‘ASK FOR GORDON’…
i sorta doubt anyone called & therefore this prob got zero distribution…
fum Dorking, Surrey… is it really any wonder then why this slipp’d thru th’ cracks?
duh… i jester put 2+2 together G.W.=GoRdoN WaLdRoN!!!

again returning to this theme that by 1980 punk had often conflicting styles…
what would yu think of an EaRLy Oi band…
/w/ Jon Anderson of YeS on kybds? ( NoT ReaLLy, but ‘stylistically’… )
then get ready fer…
SchooL Ties – “NO FuTuRe!” b/w “SCReW YOU!” ( 1980 SCF LaBeL RSCF-01 )
SChooL TiES - “NO FuTuRe” b/w “SCReW You!” 1980 SCF Rekkids LaBeL SooPR RaRe UK PuNk 7iNCh 45!
( iMNSho again ) This is TRuLy a UNiQue rekkid
yeah in a way it’s a bit ‘over slick’ in attempt / execution…
th’ way th’ kybds jest come seemingly outta nowhere & twiddle about…
V. iNCoNGRueNT!
but GoddaMN… i find BoTh Sides are iRReSiSTaBLy KaTChy!
and i think that’s really whut matters, don’t it?
CReDiT’d to School Ties ( Wellbury House ) on BoTh sides…
Murphy is credit’d on “NO FuTuRe!” & Murphy/White on “SCReW YOU!”

there’s NO Way t’ discern what yr this was releas’d…
so i’m sorta guessing 1979-1980…
PiNk FLaMiNGos / Mike MaLiGNaNT & The PaRaSiTes
TheSe ThiNGs ARe SeNT To TRy US… ‘SPLiT’ EP
( PaRa-MiNGo 001/002 )
PiNk fLaMiNGos / MiKe MaGLiGNaNT -n- Th’ PaRaSiTeS - ‘TheSe ThiNGs ARe SeNT To TRy Us…’ 1979 PaRaMiNGo SPLiT 7iNCh
i dunno whut else t’ sez…
at times it seems as if they recorded this in diff rooms & at diff times…
but there’s also sum AMaZiNG CoMPleXiTy that they are attempting!
according to th’ amazing mess of a sleeve…
PiNk fLaMiNGos were:
PeTe PiNko – Voice
Rog fLaMiNGo – Bass
Rob fLaMiNGo – Guitar
NiCkeRNeCk – Drums
with The PiNkeTTes KaTh & WiLMa…
+ JuSTiN on XTRa Guitar…

MiKe MaGLiGNaNT & Th’ PaRaSiTeS were:
MiKe MaGLiGNaNT – ‘DiEiNG CRiES’ ( ! )
ZiGGy PaRaSiTe – ‘PiSSTake LEad’
PLoG PaRaSiTe – ‘SLeePiNG BaSS’
NiCk PaRaSiTe – ‘Bad BaCk DRuMs’

purty obviously it’s th’ same band at diff times in their chronology ( ? )
i AM PLEadiNG /w/ ANyONe who KNoWs ANyThiNG MoRe About This MaSTeRPieCe!!!
PLS Let th’ WeRLd KNo who you were & what exactly drove you to unleash this…
on a still as yet unsuspecting werld…

moving sorta laterally backwards a bit again t’ 1979…
The LiCKS – “1970s Have Been Made In Hong Kong!” b/w “System Rejects” / “Hitler’s Still A Nazi!” ( WaR CRiMes )
( 1979 SToRTBEaT LaBeL Beat-8 )
The LiCKS - “1970s Have Been Made In Hong Kong!” aka The EPiLePTiCs aka FLuX oF PiNk iNdiaNs 1979!
This rekkid is def purty well-known by this point… but it was purty obscure when i pick’d it up back in 1982 or so…
what else t’ sez… it’s killer jagged / aggro brit punk…
go check out more ‘o’ th’ story here
and despite whut it proclaims on th’ back…’SMaSh GuiTaR SoLoS’…
there’s sum WiCk’d KiLLeR GTR on ThiS!!!
i jest order’d th’ SToRTBEaT ReCoRds DBL CD…
so mebbe i might write about that after it arrives…
you mebbe might still be able t’ snag it here…
i’d cert like t’ czech out that early neurotics live schtuff…

back to PoWeR PoP ’79… this usedta get play’d back then mostly late nite on wpix…
ANoTheR PReTTy FaCe – “WhaTeVeR HaPPeNed To The WeST?”( 1979 ViRGiN 7″ 45 )
ANoTheR PReTTy FaCe - “WhaTeVeR HaPPeNed To The WeST?” 1979
which i guess i might’ve known at some point back in ’85…
was Mike Scott of The WaTeRBoYs furst band
but i had forgooten in the interim…
whatever… i was feelin’ nostalgic fer late nite ’79 @ age 14 wpix rekkid…
so i put it on here… there yu go…

BeFoRe they became The STePPes they were…
FiFTy FaNTaSTiCS – “God’s got ReLiGiON” b/w “The BEaT DRiLL”
( 1980 DiNiNG OUT LaBeL TUX-5 7″ 45 )
FiFTy FaNTaSTiCS - “God’s got ReLiGiON” b/w “The BEaT DRiLL” ( 1980 DiNiNG OUT LaBeL TUX-5 7″ 45 ) PRe-STePPes!
this is a great sleeve… can yu name ’em all? i got about half…
beefheart, bowie, john peel, john travolta, einstein, bo diddley
lydia lunch (!), siouxsie, dusty springfield, liberace…
iggy, paul weller, bogart, hulk lou ferigno, marilyn…
at this point… i dunno where i read it…
i think it might’ve been in an ol issue ‘o’ bucketful ‘o’ brains…
cuz according t’ this fairly exhaustive site
there’s absolutely no ref t’ this single… whilst i try t’ figger this all out…
yu can go to MuTaNT SOUNds
fer th’ DiSCo ZoMbies “here come The BuTs” DiNiNG OUT Label 7″
also always good t’ go to Discogs.com
i did not know The ADiCTs releas’d their furst single on this largely v. d.i.y. label…

LaST One fer now…
moving ahead a buncha yrs but not really all too diff in sentiment…
The WiLdeRNeSS ChiLdReN – ‘We’Re a COUNCiL HOUSe PuNk RoCk BaNd EP’
( 1988 Reid LaBeL Reid-1 7″ 45 )
The WiLdeRNeSS ChiLdReN - ‘We’Re a COUNCiL HOUSe PuNk RoCk BaNd EP’ ( 1988 Reid-1 SCoTTiSh PooP PoP 7″ )
“MRs SPeNCe” & “GO To HeLL” b/w th’ unfortunately…
rather plodding “midsummer night’s dream”
again anuther great sleeve… how could yu go wrong /w/ a cramps drug train button?
and a notation to ‘pay as little as possible’…
th’ furst 2 trax are decent ‘shambolic’ creation label / athens ga ‘lite garage pop-punk’…
th’ third trak won’t fit on 80min cdr… it’s not as good as th’ other ones…
but that’s iMNSho…
so there yu go… all dun /w/ this ‘un…
coupla weeks fum now i’ll try t’ put up another vol…
it takes a bit ‘o’ time /w/ all th’ follow thru info trolling / link-outs…
i fergot t’ pack th’ CDR CVR in Th’ .RaR-2 file…

BiLLy GuY - “WoMeN” ( The DeSTRuCTiON oF MaN! ) 1963 CoaSTeRs!

Billy Guy & Will Jones
Billy Guy made his first attempt as a solo artist back in 1962, when he recorded 16 tracks för ABC-Paramount and Lloyd
Price´s Double L label in New York – with no great success, although the recordings were pretty interesting (and later turned up as by “The Coasters”). Still recording and touring with the Coasters up to 1973, he often was substituted by Vernon Harrell on stage and later by Jimmy Norman. Guy continued recording several records in his own name for other labels after 1973 but also waxed couple of sessions as by “The Coasters” during the 1970s – especially a session for King/Gusto in Nashville in 1977 with Will “Dub” Jones. Jones himself had already recorded as “The Coasters” (the album “The World Famous Coasters”) around 1976 together with Leon Hughes. Jones settled in Los Angeles around 1979. He acted during the ´80s with an L.A. Coasters group, often including Billy Guy and sometimes Grady Chapman. They worked as “The World Famous Coasters“. Will was semi-retired during his later years, mostly acting as a gospel singer. Billy Guy embarked a Las Vegas “The Coasters”, often billed as “Billy Guy´s Coasters“, managed by Larry Marshak of RCI Management in New York during the latter part of 1998. Marshak had negotiated a business deal with Guy after the termination of a similar contract with the Billly Richards group (see more on “
Coastin´ with The Coasters“). Marshak is the organizer behind several of the new, phony name-sakes in the U.S. – young groups billing themselves and touring as “The Platters”, “The Drifters” or/and “The Coasters”.

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Strange
No. Strange, the seminal group neopsichedelica international, was born in 1980 in Turin under the name No Strange, on the initiative of Salvatore D’Urso (better known as Ursus) and Alberto Ezzu.
In 1984 he began collaboration with the famous record producer and Julius Tedeschi (Toast Records).
In addition to D’Urso and Ezzu, alternate over time many other musicians, including Franco “Franz” Presutti and Antonio “Tony” D’Urso.
The band has always focused on activities to record live.
The live appearances were then few choices carefully, preferably in special occasions, such as “Bom Shankar Event” held in La Loggia (TO) March 20, 1988, registration of which was published in the compilation Oracle.
Ends its work in 1992.
