Interestingly right in a Animals/Kingsmen/Shadows of Knight zone, a decade later, that Witch track.

hello! from the Fair Warning Department: last night up here i slept with the down comforter on and had to shut the one window i left open at 3 am because i was cold. and yet right now it's over 85 in my cabin.

any erratic behavior (note: i mean more than usual) should be blamed on the heat.

Mlevhu was one of the baddest badasses on the scene. So great!

as always, i should note that even though i know it's a pain in the ass (and i don't miss it when it's gone), the images of the LP's are great

I couldn't not do LP covers this time, Hyde - they're so awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 7:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I don't know why it took so long for real direct references to Hendrix influence in Africa to get thru to me. It's gratifying - & I wonder if Jimi ever knew...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 7:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I guess it's simply that such a very narrow band of African music has gotten thru over here from anywhere if you're not proactive about it...
Avatar    Wed. 5/17/17 7:43pm hyde:

@Gary, ah, well, i just mean images in general!
Avatar Wed. 5/17/17 7:45pm Gary:

@RevRab, I watched a short doc recently and someone (Ililonga?) said they had sent their first LP to The Rolling Stones
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 7:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It has has been said that TheBeatles went to India, & the Stones went to Africa. Well - Morocco's a stretch maybe - but point taken...Zambia is South Central Africa - so not the slave Vodoun countries that are the Roots of American Music - but perhaps more Shamanic cultures? Of course I'm thoroughly ignorant of their History...reminded again of Meghan's months long musical travelogue of the whole continent on UnderwaterThemePark...

dang, this show is amazing. i don't know any of this stuff.

January 26, 2007. I can date the original blowing of my mind over this Witch album to its sharing at the Crotchbat blog. The page is still up, but the link is dead: crotchbat.blogspot.com...

Whoa, how fucking awesome that must have been!

It is NOT contagious (provided you applied the topical cream as directed).

that's a relief.

i also admit i am mostly reading manga while listening to this zamrock and it is awesome. except i am sweating like crazy because it is so damn hot. i might say sweating like a pig--except pigs, they don't sweat
Avatar Wed. 5/17/17 8:42pm Gary:

Anyone pick up on the King Crimson reference on the Broadway Quintet album cover?
Avatar Wed. 5/17/17 8:54pm Doug Schulkind:

@Gary
That Blackfoot LP is among my very favoritest! I think I wept upon first listen. How can that miracle not have been reissued yet?!
Avatar Wed. 5/17/17 8:55pm Gary:

It's unbelievable! I love it, too

no prob. biggest trouble with this book is that Bloomsbury seems to have decided that 10 point type was fine. which for an old white guy, is an issue.

Hey Gary, it's Jessica L. (finally made a profile so I wouldn't have to keep doing math to comment). I'm late to the party here, but this is some deep shit and it rocks. Thank you! I love the album covers too. Keep it comin'. Have you done a Nigerian show? Would love to hear it, if so. Will dig thru your archives.
