Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

May 31, 2006

The greatest piece of footage ever shot. Satire. Beat music. Go-Go dancers. Fantastic! The opener from Russ Meyer’s Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is still worth any admission fee on it own. Sit back, and wish the world looked and sounded like this.

Over, Under, Sideways, Down

May 31, 2006

The Yardbirds are one of the greatest things to happen in the British Isles. However, they don’t seem to be as famous as their peers of the Mod RnB scene. Surely they were better than the vastly over-rated Small Faces?

The Beatles, 40 Years Ago Today…

May 30, 2006

Flipmag

Flip
magazine looked better than anything I’m likely to pick up in the newsagents
today. 40 years ago this month, Flip Magazine,
were interviewing the reasonably important songwriting pair of John Lennon and
Paul McCartney. Lucky gets.

So what was Lennon prattling on about back then?
Well, he was being frank…
"If I thought I’d got
to go through the rest of my life being pointed and stared at… I’d give up
The Beatles now. It’s only the thought that one day it will all come to an end
and which keeps me going."

Jesus. And Macca? Talking about a Beatles’ TV spesh, he said "I wanted
Richard Anthony on this show but he was busy having car crashes in France or
something…" To read it all, go to the fab(!) BeatleBoy fan site.[Mof

Serge’s masterpiece…

May 30, 2006

Serge_gainsbourg_1971Serge is remembered for many things. Being the king of sleaze. Cough syrup phlegm delivery. Saying that he wanted to ‘ferk’ Whitney Houston live on TV. Oh yes, and Je T’aime (non plus) with Jane Birkin.

Aside from all that piffle, one thing often overlooked is that Serge Gainsbourg was one of the coolest men ever to have graced a piece of wax. Recent ‘best of’ comps have shown Serge’s chameleon like tendencies to tackle everything from lounge, psychedelia, Yeh-Yeh… and (gulp) reggae. However, it’s his 1971 masterpiece, ‘Histoire De Melody Nelson‘ that wipes the floor with your earholes.

Your Mojo workin’?

May 30, 2006

We all know that ALL the old garage bands, psyche bands… and white R’n’B groups all wanted sound authentic. They didn’t. Not that it’s a bad thing, but there is something about Muddy Waters that wipes the floor with some snotty Mick Jagger in his early years.
