November Youtube Mixtape For Broads

November 1st, 2012

Guys don’t make mixtapes for other dudes. I assume. Maybe the gay guys do. Can’t discount them, no you can’t. No 20% off the homo-men.


Let’s do this. November Youtube Mixtape that I’m making for girls. This goes out to all of you. I love you. Let’s put our fingers in each other. You’ll get about eighty minutes of Youtube links and that’s it.


1. King Crimson, “Starless” (12.19)


A good way to start a mixtape is with a track that ended the actual album it was released on. You’re welcome. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if I decided to post a few really long songs on this like a lazy bum even though this was my idea and I have no obligation to do this.


2. Tom Waits, “Rainbirds” (3.15)


I just wanted to prove before things get out of hand that I sometimes listen to music created after 1980. This is another song that concludes an album. Also, an instrumental.


3. The Delfonics, “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time” (3.34)


No, this is not that song from that Tarantino movie (yes it is). Shut up, bitch.


4. Jim Balcom, “Corrido Rock” (2.18)

Another instrumental, but it’s festive. How long will it take before I post Thomas Edison’s wire recordings?


5. Joe Cocker, “Woman To Woman” (4.28)


No, this is not the song from that Dr. Dre and 2Pac joint. Girl, you so stupid. By the way, I enjoy how (apart from “woman to woman”) Joe Cocker sings this without using a single word of English.


6. Loose Joints, “Is It All Over My Face” (11.57)


I know I posted this a few weeks ago, but I might as well put this in here. You’re getting some long tracks because fuck it that’s why. I don’t need a reason. Let’s dance and then let me put my hands in your pants.


Yes, you will be saying this song title later but in a different context.


7. National Lampoon, “Deteriorata” (4.19)


You’re doomed. Your life is over. Enjoy it. You are a fluke a the universe. You have no right to be here. Want me to take my cock out?


8. George Clinton, “Atomic Dog” (4.15)


Girl, this is NOT a cover of that Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg song. Are you gonna let me put my tongue in there or not?


9. SSION, “My Love Grows In The Dark” (3.54)


I am contractually bound to post something from this century. How do you feel about anal play? What if you do it to me first?


10. Marvin Gaye, “After The Dance” (5.12)


Okay, we should definitely be having sex right now. I should have all my urine in your anal cavity or at least a good amount thereof. That’s how sex is done, right?


11. Nine Inch Nails, “The Perfect Drug” (5.21)


I would have posted a song from The Downward Spiral but that’s more of a gangbang album than a one-on-one sex album. I know this because of some videos I’ve seen on Xhamster.


12. R. Stevie Moore, “Answers” (3.30)


Would you hurry up and cum already? My hand is getting tired. You know what? Go ahead and get your Wand. Call out your uncle’s name for all I care.


13. Residents, “Six Things To A Cycle” (17.47)


Here’s what I play when I want to get rid of the girl after sex even if I’m at her house. If she stays and listens, second date. If she really likes it and wants to hear more, marriage material.

One Listen Review: “Urgent/XVII

May 17th, 2011

R. Stevie Moore is posting his back catalog on Bandcamp and I suggest you check it out. With hundreds of self-recorded albums, he’s taking his Cassette Club online, and “Urgent/XVII” from 1980 is amongst the first of these re-released albums, relatively speaking. When dealing with hundreds of recording, the first dozen or so can be certainly classified as “the first”.


So what are we dealing with here? In one listen, I can hear scattered, experimental music, less song-based with copious amounts of musique concrete, snippets from Moore’s appearances on The Uncle Floyd Show, commercial radio spots for his music, then released through HP Music. But no record company great or small could handle the sheer tonnage of RSM’s collection, so many albums (this being one of them) fell through the cracks.


We’re not dealing with song-based music on this particular release. If you want that sort of thing, I heartily recommend “Clack” from the same era. For my two cents, this album gets stronger as it goes. More of an album to listen through rather than cherry pick faves from. Closer “Idiot Opium” is the catchiest thing on the record and even that has two minutes of stop-start weirdness at the beginning.


Two favorites on this set are back-to-back fourteen-minute epics, “Where Do I Come From?” and “Poverty XVII”. “Where Do I Come From” is more of a story song while “Poverty XVII” is an ambient track, seemingly formless, coasting on feel. “Do I Love You” is likely one of the few songs that anyone has heard for it as there is a video for it on Youtube. Musically, seems like a Clash-reggae pastiche.


Again, this will depend on what your preferences. If you want more song-based compositions, you can do better elsewhere in the Moore catalog. If you prefer looser experimentalism, then this might be worth checking out.
