I wished that anyone in my family would appreciate a decent alcoholic drink. I've made gluwein and hot toddies for my brothers and sisters-in-law, but they still prefer to drink crap.

The first time I heard this Gavin Bryars piece was when I came home for the holidays while an undergrad, and the preacher played it for the sermon. This was before my parents went full fundy.

wow -- never heard this outside of WFMU. thank goodness.

Ciao Fabio!
Fats Domino was a bigger pioneer in R&R then I realized, had huge attendance at concerts and always scored well on the hits charts and made several movie appearances. Recently viewed a great doc about him on PBS American Masters.

I thought this was Beefheart.

The name Anal Magic is giving me terrible visions of someone with a special talent for making things, erm, disappear.
Avatar Thu. 12/22/16 4:01pm Fuzzy:

It is -- it is the Beefheart!
  Thu. 12/22/16 4:01pm Ochre Ogre:

Wow, it's not Beefheart???
Avatar Thu. 12/22/16 4:02pm TDK60:

I've said it before but this Beefheart tune is, in hindsight, seminal piece. Post punkers came much later. It's astonishing.
Avatar Thu. 12/22/16 4:02pm geezerette:

but,it's so beautiful!

Doh! Mirror Man, I have a vinyl copy!

FYI, Serge Gainsbourg would be pronounced "Sair-gay" not "Serj". Otherwise, sounds good Fabio.
