You are an alien. You have traveled across galaxies. You arrive on earth. New York. Sometime in the futuristic 1980s - you get the picture. Your needs are simple: drugs - and plenty of them. You’re lucky, you have arrived atop the apartment of a drug-addled model, Margaret, and her coke snorting boyfriend. You’ve found drugs. You observe Margaret and her man.  Then you discover something better: sex and drugs. For when humans cum their brains produce the essence of the drug you seek. To obtain it, you have to kill them at their moment of orgasm. And guess what? Margaret can’t climax, so everyone she fucks becomes your ticket to nirvana. She thinks she’s an avenging angel, who can “kill with her cunt”; and you are an inter-planetary orgasm-addict.

Jools in Jamaica: Lost early-‘80s BBC reggae documentary hosted by founder of Squeeze

image
 
Fresh out of his tenure with new wave stars Squeeze, 25-year-old musician Jools Holland had launched his career as a TV presenter on the BBC channel 4 show The Tube. Assigned to cover Jamaica’s music scene circa 1984, the confident Holland strode right in to Kingston and made it happen.

Expertly directed by Geoff Wonfor, Jools’s special features footage of rising stars Mutabaruka, Dennis Brown, Black Uhuru and the Wailing Souls, along with spotlights on legendary riddim section Sly & Robbie and maniac producer Lee “Scratch” Perry (who claims he “comes from the trees”).

Not satisfied with the established stars, Wonfor and Holland prove their cred by including a gritty dancehall sequence with star microphone men Yellowman, Billy Boyo, Massive Dread and Lee van Cleef. They all do well until the on-fire Eek a Mouse suddenly hits the stage in pancho and sombrero and turns the place out.

Bookended by his intro while swimming fully dressed through a hotel pool and a beautiful finale shoot in heaviest Trenchtown for his big-band/ska tune “Black Beauty,” Jools in Jamaica is a remarkably bright document of an island in its deepest post-independence economic and political depths.

A pack of drug and art addled young Germans run amok in a recording studio on a major label’s dime Even better, a pair of sisters, one of them a popular mainstream singing star, travel around Europe making weird tapes on a portable tape recorder and then lavishly package the treated results as a triple LP set in an elaborate and expensive silver and gold foil sleeve circa 1970 in Germany? I’m so there.

Of all the wonderful prog bands I was introduced to in 7th grade by a friend’s older brother (doesn’t it usually work like that?) I’m most thankful for Henry Cow. In place of the D&D imagery most prog bands employed, the Cow were of a distinctly leftist, worldly bent. Dead serious and as likely to quote Schoenberg, Webern and Messiaen as they were to freely improvise an entire set, this was powerful and stern stuff. As is proclaimed on the sleeve their 3rd LP, 1975’s In Praise of Learning, “Art is not a mirror, it is a hammer”. Yeah ! Being comprised of some of the strongest, most idiosyncratic players in all the U.K. : guitarist Fred Frith, Drummer Chris Cutler, Keyboardist Tim Hodgkinson, reed player Lindsay Cooper and vocalist Dagmar Krause, each of whom deserving of multiple posts of their own devoted to their massive amounts of notable great works, they were one of the first bands signed to Virgin records and toured with the likes of Faust and Captain Beefheart during their relatively breif run in the mid-70’s. I seriously doubt that any hardcore Cow fans don’t aleady know about the following beautiful footage, the only known to exist of the band, playing most of the aforementioned LP live in a field somewhere in Switzerland in 1976 as released as part of a lavish box set a few years back. Still, I’ve been meaning to post these here since I first joined the DM crew and I hope you enjoy them.

Leftwing media wakes to the the facts (or lack thereof)

John Boehner

 
I have no idea if this is true or not and I really don’t care in the slightest, aside from the obviously pleasurable schadenfreude that comes with seeing a sanctimonious right-wing tightass feel the heat. Who really gives a shit if Oompa Loompa-orange Republican House leader John Boehner (OH) is having an affair or not (besides, of course, his wife or election opponents?) To me, the bigger story here is that some folks on the Left have (finally) decided to get a little nastier in the lead-up to the crucial mid-term elections. IT’S ABOUT FUCKIN’ TIME!

Republicans have demonstrated for well over 20 years that they will say and do anything to get into power and hold onto it. No lie is too big or too small for the GOP. Facts? Don’t talk to me of facts because no one CARES about facts anymore and the Republicans have known this since at least the Reagan-era. (I recall watching the televised Iran Contra hearings and thinking at the time: “These fucks are going to get away with this because the story is too complicated for the general public to care about it.” Sure enough… next came the Savings and Loan crisis where George Bush the first used billions in taxpayer money to bail out friends and his son, Neil. Another story too complicated to rile the public up much, of course).

In this day and age, politics IS skullduggery and that is the way the game’s got to be played. Do two wrongs ever make a right? Probably not, but in modern American politics it’s got less to do with doing unto others as you would have them do unto you and a lot more about doing it TO them before they can do it to you. If one side plays by those rules, then the other side has no choice but to play the same. It’s about time the Left realizes this. Read more at The Daily Kos and Page Six.

One last thing: Note that he doesn’t deny it. No proof of anything, but if I was asked if I cheated on my wife, I’d have a ready answer. Why doesn’t Boehner?

Ministers say gays cause global warming

Ministers in the South Pacific island of Fiji think they know the cause of climate change: homosexuals.

The revelation came at a conference at the University of the South Pacific considering the implications of Climate Change and Creativity.

Academics were apparently thrown off their consideration of “Arts in the Age of Global Warming” and “Ecology in Poetry / Poetry in Ecology” by reports of Church Ministers who maintained that climate change in Samoa are clearly attributable to to homosexuals.

The revelation prompted one attendee USP student, Shaiza Janif, to opine: “We need to educate our ministers and not turn this into an agenda.”

Details of exactly how the ministers think homosexuals are pumping more CO2 into the atmosphere, thereby trapping heat around the planet, driving up the average temperature and causing massive economic and environmental dislocation are scant.

Ya don’t say…
