Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

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.

Hi B/P!
Avatar 7:48pm Little Danny:

I've heard of this Cha Cha Shaw LP before but never actually heard it. This is way funkier than I was expecting, love it.
Avatar 7:49pm Flash Strap:

Hi Jay! That's a little thing I cooked up using a loop from Jerry Byrd and a bunch of reversed Bud Tutmarc solos

I love these reedy organ(?) tones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm chresti:

Must be worth believing in if it's forbidden, was gonna say, thanks.
Avatar 8:17pm Flash Strap:

looks like a row of organ reeds and a bunch of boat and bike horns, though I can't really tell what it is or how it works – but by god it's real y'all
Avatar 8:18pm Flash Strap:

my single favorite Chuck Berry track, this dirty tossed-off Hawaiian blues with all the ambient amp sounds you could ask for

I love all Lincolns.

Hi Flash and Explorers!
Avatar 8:23pm Flash Strap:

Hi Doc and Doug! you very fine & distinguished gentlemen, welcome
Avatar 8:23pm The Knave:

Amen! Lincoln really got a groove on that record..
Avatar 8:24pm Flash Strap:

@Knave: it's such a unique record that. Fish Specie is one of my favorite tracks ever
Avatar 8:29pm The Knave:

yeah - the early 70's sound is great. A contrast to the late 50's / early 60's jungle themed records... they are great dance floor boppers in their own right though
Avatar 8:30pm Little Danny:

Whoa what it is the Knave! How are things in Melbourne right now? Around noon, something like that, no?
Avatar 8:31pm Flash Strap:

@Knave: I don't know those actually! please recommend something I'd love to learn
Avatar 8:32pm The Knave:

Brother Danny!
11:30am Friday Morning bro - I'm supposed to be recording a new mix but I'm totally side tracked enjoying the tunes here..

Ah man I love this Preston Love and all the lava lamp gurgling. Such an outlier on that LP.
Avatar 8:37pm Flash Strap:

haha yeah it really is all on its own!
Avatar 8:41pm The Knave:

Check out the Explosive Lincoln Chase LP ... tones of Afro Latin and exotic goodness! There's some 45's worth getting too Miss Orangatang is a fun single
Avatar 8:48pm Flash Strap:

Thanks Knave I'm looking forward to pressing my ears on that
Avatar 8:50pm Frog Mover:

Delightful Alley Oop version I must say
Avatar 8:51pm Flash Strap:

i must agree

Curt Boettcher involvement, right?

Flash, all these last cuts let their hair down, so to speak.
  Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Franco Twinkie:

Mr. Coel. I'm sure you have a unique perspective on this, how hall we say, chicken squack?
Avatar 9:12pm Flash Strap:

@TDK: some serious smoke on this set for sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm coelacanth∅:

well, Franco -the chickens i've known leaned more toward clucking than quacking.
or whining.
... i'm okay with 2 of those 3 options.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Epic jams from Mr Shepp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm coelacanth∅:

... and no yakety either
  Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Franco Twinkie:

In that case, can I have potato salad with my smoked cluck-quack?

Jeepers meepers.

@Doug: truly

I prefer squawking to clucking in my own life.
