Bob RaY STaRkeR… a ‘mystery’ no more…

BoB STaRkeR 1993 ChiMP3 7iNCh EP

a week-and-a-half-or-so ago i was pleasantly surpirised t’ get a comment on th’ blog…
…to which i replied & then recv’d this e-mail…

Hey Tony!

I’m really glad you liked the disc so much… when I recorded that stuff I was between bands, sick to death of guitar players (now I am one), tired of writing lyrics no one ever heard, blah, blah, blah. So I holed up in a basement in Cambridge MA and played around with my 4-track until I had enough stuff to put out a cassette called “Noisy Sounds That Sound Like Noise”. I doubt anyone still has it; I’m not sure I even have a copy left. It got reviewed in some Boston music rag, but they didn’t take it seriously, and I just sort of passed it out to friends. One of those people was Morgan Andrews, and he was just then thinking about launching the Chimp label, so he asked me to pick 7 of the tunes, and boing… I had a 7″ piece o’ vinyl with my name on it. Yay me!

I dunno how many were pressed… Morgan gave me a stack to sell on my own, and we never really talked business beyond that. I was just happy to have the damn thing out there. I haven’t seen Morgan in about 14 years, but a couple of months ago I ran into some guys from Kudgel at a Big Dipper/Great Plains show at Southpaw in Brooklyn (loooong story), and THEY claimed that Mr. Andrews was now a traveling puppeteer. No shit.

Anyway, when I moved to Columbus in ’94 I put up fliers that looked similar to the 7″ artwork, trying to find musicians, and this guy named Nick came up to me at a show and asked if I was the same Bob Starker sax guy. He loved the record, but we never formed a band or anything. He runs a studio now, and another band I’m in (the True Moves) records there a lot.

It’s weird… I never really made any money from the record, but it keeps popping up in the hands of really interesting people who wind up being part of my life somehow. Sorta like I threw a rock in the ocean, and it didn’t start a tidal wave, but every few years I see a familiar ripple. I like that.

I’m digging all the stuff you posted with my music… I downloaded both parts last night. Very cool. I’ve never had digital versions of anything besides THUG PARADE, so thanks for that. Maybe I’ll load ’em all onto the MySpace page. I’m seriously thinking about recording some new instrumental sax-skronk. I’ll let you know if I do. I’m glad you like the WHOA NELLIE! stuff too. I don’t meet a lot of people who can appreciate both those extremes. Clearly, you and I are both frigging geniuses.

Damn, I wrote a book here… stay in touch, and thanks for everything,

Bob Ray Starker

“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
anyway… d/l Randall McCLellan ‘GeNeSiS’ 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…

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″

“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…

CNN ‘What Happened?’ / Howard Kurtz “Reliable Sources” = merely ‘Spin Cycle’ ???

Posted in Uncategorized by ynot on the June 28th, 2008

i was starting this laster sunday… but then George Carlin died & i had also wanted to get a music related post up & that took a few daze longer than i had expected…

a coupla weex ago i snagged this @ greenburp library fer 25 cents…
HoWie KuRTz - ‘SPiN CyCLe’ iNSide The CLiNToN PRoPaGaNda MaChiNe ( 1998 )

Fum Th’ BaCk: “Bill Clinton is the most invesigated president since Richard Nixon – facing inquiries into Whitewater, campaign fundraising abuses, and sexual misconduct -and yet he began 1998 with approval ratings as high as those of Ronald Reagan. But the new year has brought a barrage of new allegations, and the president and his advisers face once again the challange of spinning the news to their advantage, a challange they have mastered many times before.

In SPiN CyCLe, award-winning Washington Post reporter Howard Kurtz reveals the inside workings of Clinton’s well-oiled propaganda machine – arguably the most successful team of White House spin doctors in history. He pulls back the curtain on events and tactics that the administration would prefer to keep hidden, including:

*A tense, almost paranoid White House atmosphere in which the spinmeisters do not question the President about the various scandals because they don’t want to learn information they might have to reveal to prosecutors or the press.

*Bill Clinton’s success in reaping favorable publicity by secretly courting selected reporters and columnists in off-the-record White House Meetings.

SPiN CyCLe is an all-too-human drama in which political operatives wrestle with their consciences as they struggle to protect the boss. As the scandal drums beat louder and louder, Kurtz tells what it takes for the president and his people to survive, and what happens to the truth along the way.”

WOW! can yu fLeekin’ believe this?

hey Howie, where’s the ‘fair & balanced’ account of the Bush administration?

i watched all of this paster sundaze sho & there was not one second of air-time dedicated to Scott McClellan testifying before John Conyers House Judiciary Cmte. watch it here!

Mr. Kurtz, this is truly a shocking dereliction of any journalistic standard, as McClellan’s book was No. 1 on both Amazon.com
as well as No. 2 @ The New York Times, instead we got 10 minutes of ‘First Wife Wars – Michelle Obama vs. Cindy McCain’. I can’t help thinking that there is a twist on the scene in King Lear where the fool taunts Lear about being whipp’d for lying, …to have his ear abus’d, etc… except that it is the chattering class on the right pours lye after lye into th’ ears of th’ supposedly ‘neutral’ press, but then again Mr. Kurtz et al really should kno BuLLShiT by this point. So, No, sorry Howie NO PaSS on this ‘un… there REaLLy Needs t’ be ANSWeR fer this completely obvious O’eRSiGhT…

George Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) ….it was 1972… ‘Class Clown’ 8-trk playing constantly in the car stereo…

Posted in Uncategorized by ynot on the June 23rd, 2008

Yesterday Sunday June 22, 2008, George Carlin died…

July 21 1972 Milwaukee Summerfest Arrest Mugshot

i don’t know what i can add that hasn’t already been said, i was 8 yrs old when i first heard ‘Class Clown’, we played th’ 8-trk constantly, where it had replaced th’ worn out ‘bootleg’ Cheech & Chong tapes purchased @ ENGLiShToWN FLea MaRkeT… what made Carlin SO DaMN fLeekin GREaT as a MaSTeR WoRdSMiTh was his uncanny astute ability t’ find th’ holes in language, meaning & symbolism… and to exploit th’ contradictions lying therein… for instance… he stated he believed in ‘frisbeetarianism’ ( which he created on a lark for a newspaper contest ), it was as he defined it, as the belief that when a person dies “his soul gets flung onto a roof, and just stays there”, and cannot be retrieved. When you sit there & think about that statement, there is another pearl that can be pried as a bonus prize, which i believe Carlin, as th’ LaPSed CaThoLic that he was, fully intended; and that is that christianity requires evangelical ‘saving’ of th’ soul… an eternally vigiliant pursuit by ‘believers’ of those they suspect as ‘needy of saviour’… Carlin’s terse comedic moebius strip wrenches this blind willy-nilly ‘reaping’ into harsh reality; the soul of th’ dead lies in eternal ‘purgatory’ like a frisbee on th’ roof because it requires too much energy for th’ evangeliser to go & retrieve it… pointing out that most ‘evangelisers’ are human all too human & like all of us too self-absorbed in constant ‘cost/benefit analysis’ & would rather walk away from a difficult task than to expend energy on someone else’s soul when deep down inside they as well as each & everyone of us all doubt the depth or validity of ‘virtuousness’ of our own potentially soulless existence … SiMPLy AWeSoMe!

Carlin was admitted to St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, California after complaining of chest pain. He died later that day at 5:55 p.m. PDT of heart failure at the age of 71.
