Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from September 16, 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.

Avatar 8:14pm Flash Strap:

this Babylose is in place of last week's "Fire fe the Vatican", which does have a B-side (a toast by Jah Lion if i recall) but i was seduced to play this instead, partly because it contains elements that made it into Scratch's "Soul Fire" & Niney's "Blood & Fire"
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:15pm zzz:

lee perry tributes across fmu-land the past few weeks have been uniformly great. so much amazing stuff, so many surprises and heard many new-to-me gems on various shows

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm coelacanth∅:

i don't want to dis Junior Murvin, but i *generally* like the dub versions better
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Will the Sound Guy:

I'm only listening on my phone, I would probably be better off with headphones to feel scratch's brilliance cutting through
Avatar 8:17pm Flash Strap:

@Aitch: the smoke was so central to Perry's practice in the 70s, it is said that he would blow smoke into the mic so that it would "enter the music" – I believe this can be heard on several recordings
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm coelacanth∅:

- and into the tape as it turned!
Avatar 8:18pm Flash Strap:

@C: the vocal of Tedious is my fave Murvin track so I can't say that here but generally I agree, he is so good but also a little one-note at times
Avatar 8:21pm Flash Strap:

@C, re: the tape: yes, god I love that. a truly mystical belief and action ... that is why I call him an alchemist – they believed in a scientific process but also that the alchemist must be in a transcendent state for the process to even work
Avatar 8:23pm Flash Strap:

@will: any way is a good way but man i'm in headphones now of course and it's so good just to hear the stereodynamics if nothing else, he really uses his pans like a whole sonic vocabulary

Avatar 9:34pm Flash Strap:

@Chresti: inevitably yes i'd say. if it's a dark green
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm northguineahills:

Callaloo is made from many leafy greens, from water spinach, to pokeweed, even leaves from okra (not a species specific plant, but only for the finally taste). It has to be steamed or boliled many times (due to toxins in the leafs), usually w/ other veggies and spices for flavor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm coelacanth∅:

chresti i guess that's always a good bet!
... or eat it raw

very cool to hear Bob & Lee trading bars on a song made much more famous by Dave Barker (w/ Perry's production of course). His vocal can't really be improved on but this is still cool
Avatar 9:39pm Flash Strap:

always cool to hear the Norman Whitfield / Temptations influence on Jamaican music

Poke salat is pretty toxic unless you cook the fuck out of it.

Was this the rock steady period, Flash?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm coelacanth∅:

that's right -ngh i now remember reading that.
-still, there was a plant this guy showed me, called it callaloo. quick image search tells me he was pointing out amaranth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm northguineahills:

Yeah, Poke weed needs to be boiled and strained at least four times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm solo mon:

For some reason there’s a forest of Poke Sallet in my back yard. A very pretty plant.

@TDK: rock steady transitioning to reggae period, though i'm fuzzy on the exacts

Thank you Evan, loved the whole evening!

i've managed to nearly eradicate poke weed in my yard, digging up their roots is pretty incredible. they look like damn mandrake roots
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:44pm chresti:

This has a Leslie Kong sound to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm coelacanth∅:

we have a beautiful forest of invasive species in the yard here. lots of poke, sumac and knotweed
-and some kind of gorgeous tree with large leaves and foot-long bean pods...?

Avatar 9:46pm Flash Strap:

Avatar 9:47pm Flash Strap:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm northguineahills:

(never tried it, I want to, I need to go deep woods in the South to find some, or just do it myself).
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Will the Sound Guy:
