‘Rockin’ And Rollin’: 45 r.p.m. record from Hell

image
 
Darryl W. Bullock at The World’s Worst Records has uploaded this little nugget by W.L. Horning. A bizarre bit of rock and roll to say the least. Released on Denver, Colorado label Spin Out Records. Is this Wesley Willis’s long lost uncle?

As a little pre-Christmas favour I present to you today what has to be one of the single most peculiar recordings I have ever come across, W L Horning’s performance of his own composition Rockin and Rollin.

It’s insane; there’s no other word for it. And no, that’s not a skip you can hear on the record or a bad edit - it actually sounds like that. Basically what you have here is the backing track to Wesley’s earlier composition ‘Kiss Me, Kiss Me Baby’ sped up and played over three or four times with Wes singing the words to his latest ‘hit’ over the top. ‘Kiss Me, Kiss Me Baby’ only lasts for a little over a minute at its normal speed, which is why in this crazed, hyperventilating version Wes is forced to skip the needle back to the beginning of the track time and time again.

The man is either nuts or brilliantly inventive - I know which description I prefer.”

Live action Wiley E. Coyote and The Roadrunner

image
 
This live action take on Wiley E. Coyote and The Roadrunner cartoons by Apache Pictures is fun. The actor playing the Roadrunner actually looks a bit like the original.

I don’t know if this is part of a showreel or the beginning of a viral campaign for an energy drink. Whatever it is, it works.

Shot on location in Moab, Utah

The Carpenters were fucking awesome. I say that without a trace of irony. And here is the video for their entirely sincere late 70’s single Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft (The Recognized Anthem of World Contact Day) which is goofy as hell, but man those vocals just melt me down to a puddle. Believe.
