LOOK OUT! COMIN' DOWN FAST! a gathering of garbage, lies and reflections on CHARLES MANSON released in italy in 1993; heavy-end-lie expanded version

and in a moment of passion, get the glory like charles manson. glad to see you go-go-gogo-goodbye. in 1993 the italian helter skelter label invited a whole bunch of not all too indifferent noise artists to pay their dues and debts to charles manson without warshipping him all too much. and most of them did. and now that they ("they"!) had cankered and poisoned and killed charles manson in prison i thought you might be longing to hear what these artists refering to the pop-cultural phenomenomen of charles manson had to say way back then.
the compilation "comin' down fast" is a wonderful wooden reason to stand in line and to crash the sound. you'll get some noise by the likes of david peel, eugene chadbourne or controlled bleeding, enhanced with some bonus tracks i found in my collection.

LOOK OUT!

the cd comin' down fast:

01 - david peel and the lower east side - hemp hop smoker
02 - motorpsycho - manson's children (listen directly in your browser)
03 - starfuckers - mechanical man
04 - controlled bleeding - bound in sone
05 - limbo - you're lost, sharon t.
06 - meathead - you owe me
07 - TAC - pigs and jackasses
08 - jesus fuck & damurderers - sick city (listen directly in your browser)
09 - skullflower - spiderdrift
10 - mana erg - man's son
11 - eugene chadbourne - how can you kill me, i'm already dead (parts 1-5)


and the bonus tracks comin' down even faster:

12 - siemers - manson1 (number one of two sketches i recorded in 2002; but never mind nevermind: both are very short and you won't be harmed all too much)

13 - the manson fragments (the voice of charles manson laughing and talking about punk, water, the us of a, authority, manson and beyondness; collected on the world wide web from different sources in 1999)
14 - the beach boys - never learn not to love (their 1968 version of the charles manson song "cease to exist"; learn more on wikipedia, if you dare to trust "them")

15 - charles manson - cease to exist (demo recording, 1968)

16 - siemers - manson2 (see track12; listen directly in your browser)

17 - grateful dead - mason's children (it's mason nonmention not manson: recorded live at hollywood pop on the 28th of december 1969)

18 - thy mystyry tryck

inga rumpf and dagmar krause sounding out the abysses of the german kraut underground as the i.d.company in 1970 (plus some bonus tracks as usual)

both inga rumpf and dagmar krause had been members of the german folk unit city preachers since something like 1965, both had reached out for other musical genres like schlagerschmalz and brechtweillcabaret, and in 1970 both experienced a transitioning period of searching new directions, that later on pretty soon would lead inga to some heavyheavy bluesrock excursions with frumpy, and would lead dagmar to some filigrimprovisation with bands like slap happy and henry cow.


in 1970 though them both teamed up with some german bluesjazzjameslast mercenaries, told them to be free, and let them noise out whatever they wanted: inga rumpf caused them to flow away on some psychedeleric krautblues, while dagmar led them into the abyss of free improvisation and raw sound. the album was released in 1970 on the veryxperimental black label of the german tv program guide magazine hör zu to accompany exclusive releases of xenakis, stockhausen, john coltrane, soft machine or erik satie, and they fit in perfectly.


so side one of the album i.d.company featured inga rumpf deconstructing the blues with the following titles:

01 - bhagavad gita
02 - bum-bum
03 - i watched the women (listen directly in your browser)


and side two of the album featured dagmar krause with four featheryxperimental tracks that opened some new ears:

04 - he's out now
05 - dünne, gläserne frauen (listen directly in your browser)
06 - schneeweisse hände
07 - schwarzes insekt

in 1970 this collection of contradictory tracks was rather disturbing, so only ver few people cared about these sounds or even bought the record. but i did. but ernieway for your listening pleasure i am sharing the germanofon bootleg version rather than my worn out copy of the record with you. and as the album is just 34 minutes way too short i added some bonus tracks:

in 1967 inga rumpf aka inga sang a german version of the beat goes on, backed with a hunting original, pre-punking all that punk:


08 - inga - the beat goes on
09 - inga - dein spiel ist endlich aus (listen directly in your browser)

and appreciating the more askew ambitions of dagmar krause i added the coumplete version of a composition konrad boehmer realized in 1984 with her and phil minton, wim vos, jan hendriks and many others for the dutch bv haast records label.


10 - apocalipsis cum figuris

so this all together makes a very nice 79-minute-cd; so go and get it, baby!

the residents texas radio show special from 1976 or 1977 plus some cryptic photoes plus some bonus tracks

this special radio programme by the residents probably was recorded in 1976 for RAO in houston, texas, though it was not released to the public any earlier than 1977. it features sid powell from RAO in an interview with jay clem, represantative of ralph records and the cryptic corpration, and the residents they=themselves walking around the studio and banging on their instruments. they are talking about the facts behind the rumours that planted the question why and when the residents were infact the beatles or visubversa, and the question why the residents refuse to see the light of day, and the question who they reallyreally are; and as you might have guessed already, none of these questions will be answered properly in here. but it's a lot of fun to listen to some wellknown tunes and some semi-rarities by these=here early residents, featuring of course satisfaction, flying, king kong and mellon collie lesseon; but the interview sections with some "original" or even "live in the studio" music by the residents (you may believe this or not: they don't mind) are what make this tape a very interesting gem in their hissstory. i bought my copy way back in 1979 on the stuttgart fleamarket from klaus, a wellknown seller of overpriced bootlegs then, for some 30 deutschmarks, or something like 25 euro today. at least my version of the radio show has a cover completely different to all the versions you can find on discogs.
with the following link to a .rar-file you can download both sides of my copy of this halfamous tape as well as two bonus tracks that you can find all about way down below, as more of the well of as some obscure(d) fotos that argee gleim and memyselfandeye took way back in 1983, whose origin will be explained later on.

burst first of all:

(mp3 / pictures included / direct download)


and here's the commercial break: in the early days of 2018 the world will be delighted to see the release of the first two editions of early residents material blown up with tons of unreleased sounds, starting with meet the residents and third reich 'n' roll: these wonderful double-cd-sets can be preordered at cherry red. or die!


and on with the show: for your listening pleasure i included two bonus tracks to the .rar-file mentioned above, as mentioned above. here's number one:
the holy kiss of flesh, sixteen minutes of sounds reworked and remixed from the god in three persons project, that the residents=themselves describe as "almost danceable". this was released in 1988 in the usa and in 1993 by ralph europe as a 3"-cd and was never rerelased in this form, length or format.
 
so listen to the holy kiss of flesh in it's whole=all entiterity right here.


and let's get it on with the track "ramblin' man" the residents contributed to a compilation that included artists like hasil adkins, isaac hayes, jad fair, or the mekons paying all their dues and tributes to hank williams in 1998 on the german trikont label.


on the 29th of may 1983 the residents played live in düsseldorf, and i was there, and i was not all too amused. in an article for the german magazine lautt using my nom de guerre "ralf van daale" i explained why i was completely enthusiastic about the residents as such and why i was completely bored with their concert (just for the sake of your mandatory research i included two .pdf-files for your pleasure: the german magazine lautt # 3 from 1983 in its entirety, and the three pages about the residents as an excerpt). it's rather interesting to read what i wrote some 35 years ago; or at least i find it interesting. find out here:
 
 
more interesting though is what happened in the afternoon of the same day, and that's where those cryptic pictures in the article stem from: some days before the concert a member of ralph europe told the düsseldorf photographer argee gleim that the residents would arrive on this sunday's morning at the frankfurt airport and would take the special lufthansa train from frankfurt to düsseldorf in the afternoon. so at exactly 15:31 (3:31 pm) the both of us were waiting at he düsseldorf hauptbahnhof for the lufthansa-express to arrive: and then there they were: the residents.

some mini3inch8cmcds unearthed out of the black holes of my collection: lindisfarne, legendary pink dots, der plan, clock dva, birthcontrol, sonic youth, revolution 409, das damen, project jenny and jliat last but nought least

just exactly what the headline says: seven mini-cds found in my collection that got nothing in common except for the fact that they indeed are mini-cds, eight centimeter, three inch. the sounds are going throughrough all theemotions of postkraut, postfolk, postexperimentalnoise and whatever you hate, and so here we go:

#################################################


let us start with the german kraut legend birth control (or birthcontrol, as they seem to be preferring for reasons unknown) with some tracks from 1990, when they were stripped down to a pitiful heap including their original drummer bernd noske and some session musicians whose names may not be told, while an other version of birth control including bernd noske as well was touring germany; so that's a bit confusing. this=here 3"cd including two versions of their greatest hit "gamma ray" annieway is attributed to "bernd noske & birthcontrol" pointing to the assumption that birth control and bernd noske & birthcontrol were two different bands playing rather similar music at different places at the same time. let us leave the discussion at this point and listen to the music: 


01 - gamma ray '90 (extended version)
02 - gamma ray '90
03 - alamo (listen directly in your browser)
04 - music in the night

download bernd noske & birthcontrol
(mp3 / all scans included / direct download)



#################################################



i always loved lindisfarne, and i loved their lady eleanore as well, but much more than this (or that) i loved their song "meet me on the corner"; so i was rather happy to find a 3"cd with both of the songs i used to love way back in the seventies in unembarrassing versions recorded in 1988. divergent and complementary to the the 7"-version with two songs and the 12"-version with three songs, this=here 3"-cd is including four songs and rounds up to a pleasureful listening experience of almost fifteen minutes.


01 - lady eleanore '88
02 - meet me on the corner (listen directly in your browser)
03 - lost in space
04 - reason to be

download lindisfarne 88
(mp3 / all scans included / direct download)



#################################################



so lindisfarne is followed by a 3"-cd with some rare live recordings by clock dva from 1993. this cd was part of the rather rare double-cd-package "collective" which i don't own as far as i remember. and i can't remember as well why and how i got this cd in into my collection. burst annieway: here you can listen to some of the sounds clock dva were executing in 1993 before you go and buy the whole package for some 50 euro.


01 - soundmirror
02 - pool of shades
03 - endless phase (listen directly in your browser)

(mp3 / all scans included / direct download)



 #################################################



so let us go get back to 1993 when the german geri reig band der plan recorded and released an album's worst of rerecordings and reremixes of their greatest hits called "live at the tiki ballroom of the senior maoris recreation center in maketu, bay of plenty, new zealand"; this album included a 3"-cd called "pocket" with even more reremakes and reremodels, and this little gem is up next now.


so listen to

01 - pizza
02 - tanz den gummitwist (listen directly in your browser)
03 - ampel ne steht vorne da
04 - gabi und hans
05 - tanz den gummitwist

this tiny little 3"-cd came free with the first 3.000 copies of the album "the maria dimension" by the legendary pink dots, and is coumpletelay souled out and unavailable by the time being.it is louvelay, and you will laughve it.

  #################################################



and for the penultimate 3"-cd we got sonic youth, das damen, the project jenny and revolution 409 for your pleasure: all four of them included on a tiny little 3"-inch-cd released by sst in 1988. a little bit of crazy boogie beatles for all you lonely hearts out there!

   #################################################



and at least you made it to the button of the whale: here is jliat, the british sound artist coumpletelay unknown to most of you all the lonely people, and he doesn't mind. this=here 3"-cd is not mentioned in his discography. in 2002 he recorded and released this little item to a handful of friends and collaborarateurs, and i was lucky enough to be one of those=these chosen few because i had included two of his tracks on my KLÄNG-compilation series in the years 1999 and 2000.


so here you got the rare chance to listen to his random noise christmas record from 2002 just by clicking your left mouse burdon; there is no rarezip-file for this: if you want to keep the picktsures: save them with riotclick, youno them. 


 and that's it for now.
