Damned - Dodgy Demo


1979 Dodgy Demo Company

The Damned's "Love Song" has to be one of the best punk rock songs of all time and, in my estimation, qualifies as one of the best "rock" songs of all time as well. It's really a perfect song; great melodies, great guitar parts, attitude to spare, speed, and a perfect arrangement. The fact that they were able to inject some clever humor into the whole mess via Vanian's tongue-in-cheek lyrics is an added bonus as well.

According to the excrutiatingly detailed Damned Discography, this 7" "was given away free at the bands gigs at the Croydon Greyhound, London on 7 January 1979 and the Electric Ballrom, London on 23 January 1979" several months ahead of the official release of the "Love Song" single on the Chiswick label. Both tracks are demo versions. The b-side, "Burglar", is pure novelty and features drummer Rat Scabies on vocals.

I remember reading somewhere that a certain Damned performance in D.C. had had a profound impact on that city's then fledgling scene. Makes sense to me. You can really hear the echos of "Love Song" and some other Damned tunes, such as "Melody Lee", in material from bands like Scream, Minor Threat, and Black Market Baby.

it was very hard to find info about this record (i don't even remember where i got it from). it's considered to be a fluxus compilation, containing 8 takes on the lullaby by: doris hays, annea lockwood, ilhan mimaroglu, daniel goode, tom johnson, pauline oliveros, alison knowles, ann silsbee.

i 'm pasting from the inside cover:
"emotion has an old definition: being moved in cooscillation with another being. caring enough to take the time to soothe, console, urge, comfort, cajole - impulse of the lullaby, and of the love song. singer, sung and sung - to become one in the mind congruent with the urges and surges of the body chatting to oneself and to the world. In the desire for peace, lull music is the nonviolent person's basic song."

Head of David - Dustbowl


Head of David were an experimental heavy metal act whose sound helped pave the way for the subsequent industrial, grindcore, and noise rock genres. Hailing from the town of Dudley, just a few miles outside the city of Birmingham in the heart of England's so-called Black Country, Stephen R. Burroughs (vocals), Eric Jurenovski (guitar), Dave Cochrane (bass), and Paul Sharp (drums) were clearly influenced by the region's heavy industry and depressed economy during the mid-'80s when formulating Head of David's grimy and oppressive sound. This sound was potent enough to make an immediate impact upon the release of their first two efforts in 1986: September's Dogbreath EP and October's simply named LP, which remarkably climbed to number three on the U.K. indie charts and was followed in July of 1987 by the live Shit Hits the Fan, which made it to number 21.

That year also saw then-Napalm Death guitarist - and future Godflesh and Jesu mastermind - Justin Broadrick become Head of David's drummer, joining them on-stage and in the studio for the Saveana Mixes EP, 1988's Steve Albini-produced (and, amazingly, Americana-influenced) Dustbowl album, and 1989's John Peel Sessions collection, White Elephant. Unfortunately, the group's tense internal chemistry finally gave way to an implosion at this point, with Cochrane decamping to join God and Broadrick launching his signature project, Godflesh, while Burroughs and Jurenovski soldiered on with new bassist Bipin Kumar for one final Head of David album, 1991's Seed State. In the aftermath of their demise, the group's legacy has regrettably been reduced to a cult level, but Head of David's influence remains alive and kicking in countless subsequent industrial metal acts like Pitchshifter, Fear Factory, Rammstein, and beyond.

At last the mystery is solved! Wassonii has unearthed a Coil gig from 1983. It was at the Magenta Club 0n August 4 1983 and features the exact same version of Red Weather as is on the tape that Jhonn sent me all those years ago.

The guy was a genius. It's just not right that he's not around any more.:(

I know The Parkinsons and I've seen them live playing with The Libertines. Not my thing, but they were good fun live.

Oh, I'm so good to you!

Have a bit of this, why dontcha!

Throbbing Gristle - The Desertshore Installation

Between June 1 and 3 this year, TG set up a recording studio in the ICA and invited the public to come and watch/listen to them recording the raw material for their next album, which is going to be a cover of Nico's 'Desertshore' album.

I was lucky enough to be in the audience for the last of the six, two hour sessions (wish I could have been at the rest -couldn't afford it). So when I heard that TG were going to release a limited run of a recording of all 12 hours I just had to have one. Ebay had been kind to me in the preceding couple of weeks and I had the required 100 in my Paypal account, so it felt like I was getting it for free!

This is the first hour of the first session. If you like it, I'll put the rest up - eventually.

Wow, now I know where the reference for Stereolab/NWW's "Simple Headphone Mind" was taken from.
