Dungen P3 Live Session 12/6/2008

Here is a great sounding live in studio FM broadcast, out of Svenska Grammofonstudion, Göteborg, Sweden. Unfortunately, if you don't speak the language the interviews wont do much for you. Don't let this stop you from getting this. The music (10tracks) sounds amazing. I just cut out the interview parts, and went straight for the beautiful psychedelic sounds. Dungen is one of the top bands keeping psychedelic music alive and fresh. Every album is gets better and better. If you ever get a chance to see them live, don't pass it up. I got to see them play at the Earl a couple of times. It was a mind expanding, ear orgasm. Looking forward to their return.

'Revolution 1' Take 20 ???

Update Song link

A previously unreleased version of The Beatles' 'Revolution 1' has found its way online.

The recording, which is supposedly 'Take 20' of the song, is available to listen to via a YouTube link below.

'Take 20' of the song is notable, as it appears to bridge the gap between The Beatles' 'Revolution 1' and 'Revolution 9'.

The main difference in the 'new' version of 'Revolution 1' and the version of the same song that appeared on 'The Beatles' (commonly known as 'The White Album') is the track's length. The unreleased version is a full seven minutes longer than its released counterpart.

Lyrically and structure-wise, the song doesn't differ wildly from the released version, although the entire second half of the unreleased version is made up of tape loops, vocal effects and studio trickery - some of which appears to have been sampled by The Beatles for use on their sample-heavy 'Revolution 9' track, which also appears on 'The White Album'.

'Take 20' of the song begins with the band talking in the studio, where John Lennon is heard saying "Take your knickers off and let's go" in a high-pitched voice.

The band then begin playing the song.

Although 'Revolution 1 (Take 20)' soon mutates into five minutes of assorted backwards singing and screaming from the band, the drums, guitars and George Harrison's vocal of "Om-shooby-do-wop" still remain throughout.

Towards the ten-minute mark, the song breaks down into a barrage of speech and from John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

Blogs across the internet are hosting the song, with some fans hailing it as 'the holy grail' of unreleased material.

However, it is yet to be officially confirmed as being authentic.

The Crisis Of Credit Visualized

I know this video has nothing to do with music. But I found it to be very enlightening. It really gives you a strong understanding, of why we are in such a sad state of economical affairs. The video explains it in a way that will not bore you to sleep. So what the hell? Give it watch. You might learn something. Or at the very least be able to easily explain it to someone else.

Dewey Martin passed.

NEW YORK - Dewey Martin, the Canadian-born drummer for '60s rock band Buffalo Springfield, has died.

Rolling Stone reports that Martin died Jan. 31 of unknown causes in Van Nuys, Calif. He was 68.

According to the Rolling Stone report, Martin not only sang backup on the Buffalo Springfield hit "For What It's Worth," he also provided the LSD to Stephen Stills that inspired him to write the song.

After the band fell apart in 1968, Martin tried to carry on by forming the New Buffalo Springfield, which led to legal battles.

He later became a car mechanic.

Martin, who grew up in the Ottawa area, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the rest of Buffalo Springfield in 1997.

He was born Walter Milton Dwayne Midkiff and began playing drums at age 13, according to the online music encyclopedia

After moving to the U.S. he worked as a touring drummer with performers including Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers and Patsy Cline.

Psychic Ills - "Mantis" video

If you are into Spirtualized, Spacemen 3, and The Warlocks. You're gonna dig this band. Their new album "Mirror Eye" is a heady trip. They live in that dark psychedelia, combining old and new sounds into something very pleasing to the ears. I think this video says it all.

Panta Rei - Panta Rei

Here is a rocking album out of Sweden. It was first released by Harvest in 1973. The same label as Pink Floyd. That should tell you right there, that this is worth checking out. The first song dives right into a hepped up psychedelic/guitar rocking jam. Followed by even more serious jam sessions throughout the rest of the album. Acid Rock at it's best. And I mean come on with an album cover like that, how can you be disappointed? Seriously.

Track List:

1. Five Steps (3:09)
2. White Bells (6:51)
3. Five O'Clock Freak (9:40)
4. The Knight (13:40)
5. The Turk (4:08)

The Cramps Studio Demos/Outtakes 1979

With this unfortunate passing of Lux, I thought this bootleg to be a good way to remember, some of the great music The Cramps have created. The first part is the Ohio Demos from 1979. Recorded with Alex Chilton from Big Star. And the last three tracks are studio outtakes from Akron in 1979. The whole thing sounds great, and is a must, even if your not a hardcore fan. Hopefully, someday this will be officially released. Hope it brings you back to the good old fun times of music. Lux definitely had that covered.

Track List:

1 Twist & Shout
2 All Tore Up
3 Mystery Plane
4 TV Set
5 Rockin' Bones
6 What's Behind the Mask?
7 Uranium Rock
8 Under the Wires
9 Teenage Werewolf / Sunglasses After Dark
10 Jungle Hop
11 Mad Daddy
12 Human Fly
13 Love Me
14 Voodoo Idol

Lux Interior 1948-2009

Cramps Frontman Lux Interior Dies

February 04, 2009 07:04 PM ET
Cortney Harding, N.Y.
Cramps frontman Lux Interior passed away today (Feb. 4) at a Glendale, Calif., hospital due to a pre-existing heart condition, the band's publicist confirms to Billboard. He was 60.

The Cramps formed in 1976 and were part of the now legendary downtown New York punk scene. Their lineup shifted over the years but always included Lux and his wife, Poison Ivy. The band's rockabilly-infused punk has been credited as an influence by bands like the White Stripes, Pearl Jam and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

Interior, whose real name was Erick Lee Purkhiser, was born Oct. 21, 1948, in Stow, Ohio. He met Ivy in 1972 and started the band shortly thereafter.

The Cramps released 14 albums over the course of their career. Their latest, 2004's "How To Make a Monster," sold 11,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Their best-selling album, 1984's "Bad Music for Bad People," has sold 95,000 copies.
