Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from May 27, 2021 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

My uneducated guess is that the live recordings of Harmonia from 70s could have covered a lot of their live activities. I might get it completely wrong, but it could be they were not a prolific live act, what with their studio activities with Cluster, Neu!, Harmonia and their solo stuff.

Stitt is confused here – he was born with a facial deformation & later adopted the nickname The Ugly or The Ugly One – he's clearly intending an homage to Eli Wallach's character

This Morricone track is not reggae of course - but also has a proper bass line.

the Hippy Boys loved Death Rides a Horse – and went on to basically become the Upsetters (who also have major spaghetti western element to their early records)

@9:43 Flash Strap: OK! I know shamefully little (well, nothing) about reggae, but love Lee Perry (at least up to late 70s or so?), so thanks for some badly needed education (had no idea about their existence as Hippy Boys)!
