Jiggers  Boys & Girls For Jesus/Zacchaeus   Options Story Time  LP  Jello Biafra: "Paul's nomination for the most demented record of all time is another religious singing ventriloquist record: Jigger's Story Time from Anaheim, California." Paul Major: "I think it's a Firesign Theater-type parody of a Christian record. There are subtle clues scattered throughout,...and when they're talking about taxes, Jigger puts in put in crazu Bronx-accent wind-u[ whistling noises." Jello: "But why would anybody make something like that? I think it was designed for parents to sit down and listen to with their kids, reminiscent of the era Pat Robertson wants to bring back. There are jokes to keep the adults interested, as well as the kids-- the dialogue must be heard to be believed."

Xenogenesis  Side 1   Options seXxenogenesis #1 - I Am That I Am  LP  "Another religious find is Xenogenesis #1 from Florida. The artwork shows an intricate galactic painting with a Star of David and an endless circle of craked eggshells with apple-eating snakes. The liner notes throw all kinds of words, symbols and signs together (like swastikas and peace signs) mixed with phrases like: "equating equilibrium gamma rays of Christ-crystal clear new-nuclear energy of-Revelation 22:1-and he showed me a river of the everlasting water of life clear as crystal coming forth from the throne of God - seat of nuclear reactor power-within the nucleus of an atom... They pyramid-triangle-trinity laws that the holy spirit-neutron-five the water-electron-six the blood-proton-these three are one, therefore this is limitless sexual love law of 69, cancer, milky way of time-space existence, continuum of immaculate virgin conception...revert to a carbon 666 atom of recycle reincarnation. Now in order to obtain your Xenogenesis #2, please send me the price of a carbon 666 atom: $6.66. I'm not going to kid you or beat around the bush; I need a lot of money and workers in order to help everyone on this planet earth since you use money here. Considering there are about 3-1/2 billion people here, can you imagine if each of you only gave me one dollar? That would be approx. 3-1/2 billion dollars. I ask sincerely, humbly: would that be enough if I in turn spend that same one dollar on each of you?" - Paul Major

John Rydgren  The Happening/ Groovin' on a Saturday Night/ Dark Side of the Flower/ The Lord is My Shepard   Options Silouette Segments  LP  "The American Lutheran Church in St Paul, Minnesota, aimed its "Silhouette" series of records at wayward youngsters. One cover, showing a girl in a tiger-striped mini-skirt, proclaims, "It's Rock! It's Religious! It's a Revelation!" The record combines very well-done psych-ploitation movie soundtrack music with religious narrations and guest apperances by everyone from Marvin Gaye to Paul Revere & the Raiders to Peter Tork of the Monkees. The producers had a certain understanding of '60s teen pop culture; a lot of money must have gone into this." - Paul Major

This album is by Ron Dilulio and James E. Kerr, The Death of the World of Now, produced by "the Creation Factory Inc. in association wwith astral projections." [?] Dilulio does the music; it's '60's experimental electronics that would fit well on a Limelight Records release, except this was recorded in 1978. Over eerie, echoey screams and sound effects James Kerr narrates: "A canyon began where man ended, and ended when the moon had stopped...Satan stood on a shelf of rock that shut out over the gorge and surveyed the aftermath of God's destruction. His laughter roared across the depression and echoed off the far walls washing back like waves over the sea of dead... thousands of flickering fires flurrying upward in a luminous background of read and blue. Cyclops monsters and creatures of the inferno swirled in the conglomeration of chimeras and hallucinations as they whirled around the fires, whipping themselves into a fitful fury of an orgy. Now and again a shout of laughter would shatter the night as a reptilian creature heaped the flames of a fire with the deformed body of a slave..." - Jello Biafra

Off to the lobby to get some popcorn, save my seat.
Avatar 1:47pm BC Sterrett:

heh, you got it!
Avatar 1:50pm BC Sterrett:

We begin in 10 Mins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Otis:

There was no popcorn and the 3 people working in the lobby were all artists who pressed up records in a run of 100 each with hand-painted cover art. Looks like I'm in the right place!
Avatar 1:56pm BC Sterrett:

This is the best place for stuff like that! I hope the WFMU record fairs come back soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Otis:

Me too, we'll meet up at the next one, I'll take the train down.

Great week in Sheena's... Steve Young last night on Kitten and today Paul Major. Fun fun.
Avatar 1:59pm BC Sterrett:

Oh I know! I wish it was the real Paul Major, it's just his written interview and comments for this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Otis:

Will be a great show BC. Jello & Paul in the stream!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Otis:

Oh, this one... seXxenogenesis. Wild record, I think you had this one when you visited Montreal and we played in on FP in 2010... I should get that episode out as you play live on it.
Avatar 2:11pm BC Sterrett:

That's true! We played a good segment of it. This might be the same copy played on Friendly Persuasion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Otis:

I'm going to dig that show out and listen again. Fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Otis:

I love this, so, unique. That laugh and echo effects on whispered words.
Avatar 2:13pm BC Sterrett:

This gets my vote for one of the most bizarre records ever made.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Otis:

seXxenogenesis. a voice for all time. in what dimension though, that is the question.
Avatar 2:16pm BC Sterrett:

He loves the Sound of Music, 2001 A Space Odyssey, and keeps talking about dessert.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Otis:

Looking this up and found this with more Xxenogenesis info - metanoia.press...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Otis:

Dropping a link here for the download. A recording that belongs in every living room (depending on which dimension again you live within)

Avatar 2:22pm BC Sterrett:

Oh wow. I still wonder if I want to see a picture of him, or just want to keep the imagined image of this disembodied voice.
  2:22pm Space cowboy:

Holy crap! Where can I find the xenogenesis record
Avatar 2:23pm BC Sterrett:

There are 3 copies now on discogs
  2:23pm Space cowboy:

Oh I see the link
  2:24pm Space cowboy:

Thanks otis
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Otis:

You got it cowboy! I bookmarked to download again myself. Thanks BC for playing this today and sparking my memory of this awesome album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Otis:

I want to re-create this entire album with Sheena DJs playing parts when the voice changes from normal to whisper to song to sfx.
Avatar 2:29pm BC Sterrett:

You could easily do it with Constance :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Otis:

The transcription would take some time but would be worth it. Maybe for a holiday show in the future.
Avatar 2:36pm BC Sterrett:

That would be an amazing project!
Avatar 2:38pm BC Sterrett:

Ha, the Donald Duck and Bugs Bunny part!
Avatar 2:38pm BC Sterrett:

This will be the first time I've ever played this in its entirety over the air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Otis:

I know, ha! You know where this whole album covered live would work the best. A future WFMU record fair performance with FMU DJs. Ha!
Avatar 2:40pm BC Sterrett:

I agree, that would be amazing
Avatar 2:41pm BC Sterrett:

I have no idea what he's talking about. So random and sporadic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm WR:

thermonuclear fusion sounds pretty intense.
Avatar 2:45pm BC Sterrett:

Hi WR :)
Avatar 2:47pm BC Sterrett:

Halloween record wind!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Otis:

His vibraro here is channeling Bobby "dog and my van is all I need" Brown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Otis:

Vibrato of course. I'm not sure what Vibraro is, but maybe that's what he is doing here.
Avatar 2:52pm BC Sterrett:

ha ha! Channeling Tiny Tim
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Otis:

Yea, tip toe through the 4th dimension!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm WR:

I was thinking TT too. And then the ending.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Otis:

Dana C turned me on to this Sheldon album back in the C&SM days.
Avatar 2:58pm BC Sterrett:

I'm actually playing the Silhouette Segments record. I could never find the Rock Religious Revelation LP. But I imagine it's either the same or similar material.
Avatar 3:00pm BC Sterrett:

Dana turned me onto so many things
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm WR:

i recall hearing dark side of the flower recently, probably on sheena but....
Avatar 3:04pm BC Sterrett:

I wanted so badly to be part of Beware the Blog, I almost was, but the learning curb of posting such things was beyond my capabilities at the time.
  3:05pm Space cowboy:

Oh man this is my first time listening to this show it's crazy/ great but now I have to find these record s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm chresti:

Hi BC and anarchivists!
Avatar 3:08pm BC Sterrett:

Welcome Space Cowboy! Hi Chresti!
Avatar 3:11pm BC Sterrett:

I believe it was Otis and Dana that turned me onto the Click Kids as well
Avatar 3:11pm BC Sterrett:

...That Cool and Strange Music Thrift Store comp!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Otis:

For Silhouette Segments, this 2-CD set has it all, highly recommended to all - www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Otis:

You were a part of the blog through the 365 Days Project BC. ;)
Avatar 3:14pm BC Sterrett:

Yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Otis:

Dana turned me on to the Click Kids. I can't remember who, but a reader of the mag found a box of the LPs, like 100 and was selling them dirt cheap 20 years back. I should have bought one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Otis:

Paul Major's book is such a fun/read, have to drop a link here, shop.mexicansummer.com...

+ the Feel the Music comp he did was also quite lovely, some moving songs form private presses on there. Go Major!
  3:17pm Space cowboy:

Oh s**t Otis thanks cool!
Avatar 3:17pm BC Sterrett:

Holy cow, wish I had known. Mine was kinda pricey, but it was a grail I was after for some time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Otis:

Yea, but having an OG copy is pretty damn cool. I mean, just to hold the record and play the record at the same time... that's a feeling for sure!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Otis:

Reading these books like Paul Major, Enjoy The Experience and even back 25 years to the ISM RE/Search books... I have only discovered about 5% (maybe) of what is written about. I need another 100 years added on to my lifespan please.
Avatar 3:23pm BC Sterrett:

It's a bottomless pit, especially the private press stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm chresti:

I used to hear this on Shirley & spinoza internet radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Franco Twinkie:

That guy was on KABC FM in Los Angeles in the late 60's before they changed their call letters to KLOS. He called himself Brother John when he played Deep Purple.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm chresti:

@ John Rydgren, what a voice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Otis:

Hi chresti and Franco. The S&S radio days. Planning on pulling out some S&S segments to play on FP soon + other Fausto treats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Otis:

Don't know this lp, very cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Franco Twinkie:

Wow, synthy stereo action
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Otis:

Great album! Gotta check this out now further.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Franco Twinkie:

For kids who were having typical teenage emotional problems and taking wads of drugs in the early 1970's, stuff of this ilk had the potential to be more mind bending that the Firesign Theater.
Avatar 3:56pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks for listening everyone! See you next time. Stay tuned for DJ Georgy Girl :)
Avatar 3:57pm Sem:

Clearing my schedule to listen to this episode uninterrupted.
Thanks for airing this, BCS.
