Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from April 9, 2020 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.

Chaino, good grief:

Richard Hayman's "Voodoo!" on the other hand, is fairly convincing in parts. Also, Perez Prado's "Voodoo Suite" – but Drasnin's album could just as well be called Ports of Paradise, or whatever

Many years ago I was driving down Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park. It was a hot summer night and the windows were down. I was stopped at a signal across from a storefront Santeria church. The wild screaming and chanting coming out the open door was nothing like these records. It was kind of scary.

Nice quote from Kirby Allan, producer of a number of Chaino's recordings:

"He was a troubled artist, but it was what made him a great artist. He vented all his hang-ups and sexual frustrations busting out on those drums. I almost got shot trying to help him. People would come after him for all kinds of reason."

- about liner notes...they put me in a "special" room in high school (10th?) because they figured i couldn't read. the "special" teacher, Ms.Piel, was a special lady and we got along great. she soon asked me if i read anything...anything at all. i said liner notes!
so she got me reading bios of musicians and groups and Presto! i'm not mentally handicapped any more!
