Change is the Only Constant, Teen!





Watched the first episode of the new NBC series Constantine this week-end. I'm no Vertigo/DC Comics pantheon fan boy, but I like Hellblazer, Sandman, & a few similar comics. I liked the 2005 Constantine  movie (I'll admit I'm a fan of Ted 'Theodore' Logan…liked him since River's Edge, which although a work of fiction, was inspired by the actual murder of Marcy Conrad, who was killed by her boyfriend Anthony Jacques Broussard in Milpitas, California in 1981 while I was living there…but I digress) so I decided to check it out.

Constantine’s business card with a 404 (Atlanta, GA) area code. 
You can call the number & hear a voice-mail message from Constantine directly.

Constantine is John Constantine – Exorcist, Demonologist, & Master (Dabbler) of the Dark Arts (he's having his business cards reprinted). Preceding this first episode, Constantine’s band, Mucous Membrane, stumble upon a gory murder scene at the Casanova Club. A possessed young girl by the name of Astra Logue is identified as the suspected perp. Constantine attempts an exorcism, but the exorcism fails. The demon responsible is Nergal, a recurring nemesis of John's. Constantine heads to Ravenscar (Secure Facility for the Dangerously Deranged) for some good ole Electro-Shock Therapy treatment to help him forget.



The show has cool atmosphere & visuals (IMO some good CGI effects). The show offers many nods to comic fans (see the essential relics in Jasper Winter’s collection).

The pilot was a bit crowded, as it had a great deal of character & storyline explaining to do (quickly establishing a vast, comics-based mythology for a mixed audience is no easy task), but I think the coming episodes should open up a bit.

All in all kinda messy but that’s how I live my life…KINDA MESSY!

Tracklist –
Allotropy

Allotropy was comissioned in June 1985 by Allotrophy Exhibition’s Jan Smith-Merritt & Stephen Hill, two American video artists. It was composed to accompany their performance video, reflecting not only the visuals presented but also the artist’s personalities, an integral part of the whole project. The final video piece is not available but by releasing the music this CD stands as evidence of its existence. Staalplaat originally released this on cassette in 1987.

& from the insert notes:

“It’s a hot evening – the air hardly moves – you feel as if you are having trouble breathing … A thin sheen of sweat covers your body, but an even heavier weight presses down on you – a heavy urge that seems to come from the deepest recesses of your brain. A small, white hot light inside of you that grows brighter and brighter until it seems to take over your every thought. You slowly walk over the cabinet/drawer/closet/box and reach inside, grasping for that object which drives you. Removing an item, you slowly walk over to the ‘machine’ and insert the item into it. Flicking a small switch, images slowly flicker to life on the machine’s screen and you are transfixed – the object of your desires springs to life and you are drawn in to the depths of your fantasies. A pulsing, driving sort of music orchestrates the intense acrobatics on screen. You are drawn in not only by the images, but also by the drive of the music, it’s siren song luring you closer and closer to the completion of your journey. You have just entered ‘The Porn Zone’.”

“20 tunes of porn groovieness with a bonus track featuring a ‘Behind the Scenes’ look at the porn industry that will be sure to titillate even the most repressed listeners. It’s time to turn those lights down low again, & get it on.”

Holy Grail





It’s been quite a while that I’ve gone without anything from musical genius Bill Nelson. The posts for his music are the most visited & most enjoyed of all my posts.

For a long time, Northern Dream was the Holy Grail I was questing for from Señor Nelson. Released the year before he helmed the mighty Be Bop Deluxe, ND is quintessential Bill Nelson. 1971…this is still rock, you understand, but I’m in no way apologizing for its excellent quality. This ranks with Syd Barrett & Marc Bolan. In 2012 Cocteau Discs reissued this treasure on 180 gram vinyl. I was lucky enough to get one of the 250 limited edition records with a repro/original Smile Records cover, a 12" booklet, lyric sheet, & signed postcard. If you want this, you can find it.



The other day I was wasting some ill-gotten gain feeding my vinyl addiction & came across a copy of the Butt UK 1980 release in near-mint for less than an arm & a leg. I am going to feature one track from that mono-only release, "House of Sand" as a taste/teaser.




Fast forward ten years. Bebop had been replaced by Red noise & now red Noise was silent. Bill was on his own again. Here is another of his earliest solo ventures that I have let slip but will quickly rectify.  Quit Dreaming & Get on the Beam was released in 1981. This one is not so easy to come by here in the States. It was re-issued in Europe & the U.K. on Mercury in 2005 with seven additional bonus tracks, so if you want more than the original, search it out.

But the earliest Bill Nelson I have is on 1970s A►Austr – Musics from Holy Ground. Try that out, completists.

The photograph shows Cass Yard & the archway leading out to the main street, Kirkgate. It was taken by Mike's brother, Kevin, one Saturday in 1970. The final cover of Musics used a black screen print on a bronze card, only showing the four women in the photo above: Yvonne Carrodus, her sister Gail, Gail's friend Denise, & Shirley Levon, Mike's partner. The picture also featured Mike (on the left) & Chris Coombs (right). Bill Nelson turned up on spec. He can be seen at the rear brandishing his Gibson guitar.

Even Voodoos Get the Blues





The Mutants were formed in 1998 by Veijo Keppo & Jussi Sipilä from the ashes of their previous band Isebel’s Pain. They wanted to form an instrumental band after getting tired of more than their fair share of difficult singers. They play a unique blend of 60s garage rock, surf, porn funk, & manic psychedelia. Their instrumental madness would be the perfect soundtrack for a lost Russ Meyer or Quentin Tarantino film.

After the first chaotic gigs with the usual rock instrumentation augmented by Farfisa organ, these Mutants decided they needed a bigger sound. They added saxophone & more percussion while the original punk/surf/garage style got shoved through a new funkier Parliament/Funkadelic filter. On the strength of several EPs, singles, & compilation tracks, dozens of gigs, the support of local music magazines, & the active garage rock scene of southern Finland, the band made a three-record deal with the label Spinefarm in 2003. On Spinefarm´s Ranch label, the band released the full-length albums Voodoo Blues (2003), Death Cult (2004), & Grave Groove (2007). This is their initial Ranch release.

On Voodoo Blues, The Mutants are: Veijo “Abnormal” Keppo - Farfisa organ & guitar; El Toro – guitar; Jack Europa – guitar & saxophone; Don Hesus – percussions; Kartsu “Dr Drunkenstein” a.k.a Orb Sirius – bass; & Victor Stereo – drums. Cover by Mexican master Tiki-artist Dr. Jorge Alderete.
