Labradford's Second Festival of Drifting 1999.




sarramkrop 11.02.2008 02:54 PM

An appropriately titled, thoroughly obscure item to kick off the blog. Released on Alan Jenkins' Cordelia Records from Leicester, home of the kings of obscure classics, The Deep Freeze Mice, and related bands Chrysanthemums, Ruth's Refrigerator, The Creams, Yukio Yung a.k.a. Terry Burrows, and others. This release pretty much summarizes Alan's understanding of the concept humour, and that's not a typo but a hint that this is of the British variety, not the sophomoric, American style ala Ween or The Rudy Schwartz Project. Highlights of the album include Yukio's title track, the dreamy Kennedy says, and one of my all-time favorites, Modern Girls by The Wimps. If anyone has their EP please contact me, as I'm dying to hear it.

Don't know if this site has already been mentioned, but anyone looking to bolster their collection of 80s (primarily British) indie pop, or who simply wants to relive the sadness of their youth via a Microdisney album, could do a lot worse than checking out

Thanks for the stuff posted above. Pavement are lame, but this 7'' single might be of some interest to the fans.

Singles Going Single # 75 - Pavement "Black Out"/"Extradition" promo 7'' (2006)

These days, record companies have to pull out all these high-falootin stops to woo folks into stores, or at any rate, Amazon. Nowhere is this notion more prevalent than with deluxe reissues. Pavement's continuing double-disk reissue campaign is a model for other vintage acts with healthy back catalogs to follow. Pavement's exhaustive redos of Slanted and Enchanted, Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, Wowee Zowee, and soon to come in late November, Brighten the Corners, are chockablock with contemporary b-sides, Peel Sessions, outtakes, and live tracks, not to mention exquisite packaging.

As if 2006's Wowee Zowee (Sordid Sentinels) reissue, bustling with 50 tracks wasn't enough to seal the deal, those who pre-ordered the album were also treated to an exclusive 7" with alternate versions of a couple of the album's sleepier numbers, "Black Out," and "Extradition." Both songs are included in this post, of course, and here's a little background info I dug up:

According to Stephen (Malkmus), this version of "Black Out" (which is not the album recording) was recorded around the time Crooked Rain came out. It was originally intended for a compilation curated by Thurston Moore, but that never materialized. Matador's vault plunderers found it on a reel of final mixes from the Random Falls sessions in NYC from early 1994. "Extradition" is a version with different vocals and a slightly different mix from the album version.

So there you go. Now all you slacker Pavement completists who missed out on this deal the first time around can go to bed with a little more satisfaction tonight. Sorry, no picture sleeve. Move along, there's nothing to see here.

A. Black Out
B. Extradition

BBC 1970s radio jingles
I’m a total sucker for this stuff.
I first fell in love with listening to ethereal, long-forgotten radio jingles after hearing Negativland for the first time, when I was somewhere in the early part of high school. My introduction to them was a cassette of “Helter Stupid” (1989) that I picked up from the Beverly Hills Public Library, and on side 2, the album contains a side-long suite called “Moribund Music of the ’70s”, made up of samples containing strange radio moments, dull ’70s music and a slew of old station IDs and jingles.
I just love hearing those ten-second-long drum-fill-and-horn-section-leading-up-to-the-climactic-burst-of-harmonized-singing-choruses!!!! Also included in this download is a 10-minute BBC radio documentary on the history of the radio jingle!

SKAFISH - self-titled LP (1980)
I’ve been waiting for this one for a long time, and I finally located it last week. Fans of “Urgh! A Music War” will undoubtedly remember Skafish’s bizarre, lurching performance of the awesome “Sign of the Cross”, which comes at the tail end of the film; this album features ten equally strange, compelling tracks.

Sounding like a mixture of Human Sexual Response, Athletico Spizz 80 and fellow IRS labelmate Wazmo Nariz, this one’s highly recommended. Trouser Press sez:
Indiana’s Jim Skafish is one of the oddest eggs ever to wander into the shopping mall of rock music. Visually androgynous and, well, unattractive, Skafish builds his songs on neurotic angles of romance, suicide and growing up different that are most pessimistic. Yet, by couching them in sprightly tunes delivered with great geniality, he creates an unnerving dynamic. His band is skilled and supple; his first album, despite all its personality flaws, is clear and fascinating rather than grim or depressing.

I've posted this before in the world music thread, but I'm going to post it again because it's just that awesome.



Here's some Sinawi music from Korea, an interesting improvised traditional form, used to accompany Shaman rites, that I don't know that much about. Something very fascinating about it, is the sonic resemblance, at times, to free-jazz and western improvisational styles. The strident timbres and large pitch-bends are always a treat, as in other Korean styles like sanjo.

There are other goodies at the root site, but there's a lot, without very much accompanying information. Look for Daegum and Kayagum sanjo pieces! (English spellings may vary)

If you like that there are a few recordings of sinawi music that I've found still in print. "The Folkloric Instrumental Traditions I & II" (from JVC's world music label) is pretty good.
