Default One of those 'Wat'cha Listenin' To?' threads.

I know, I know...it's soo been done already, but I can't help myself. I became all inspired by liv's thread in Politics and Law, and what I'm listening to now. :D

I've been getting into William Burroughs and his various collaborations lately. A new one I just discovered is Burroughs and Gus Van Sant on a track called The Hipster Be-Bop Junkie. It's a crazy recording. Burroughs lyrics create a typically surreal, narcotic image; and over what I guess is the chorus is a strange echo, intoning like Vogon poetry. And it's all set to a groove that has me imagining the subversive arts and street culture of the Beat Generation all the way to Warhol's Factory and the Velvet Underground. Burroughs twisted humour is as wry and subtle in the guitar lines, as it is not in the Vogon Poetry sounds. This track is a cool, funky, unexpected pleasure - even though I'm one to expect good things from everything Burroughs has recorded.

How 'bout you? What'chu listenin' to now, or what'chu herd lately that floats yer boat?

William Burroughs? The dead author of Naked Lunch? Weird to find that he's on CD ... but that's rock and roll ...

Makes me feel all modern and with it listening to By The Way (RHCP). Strictly, I'm listening to the guys in the next office arguing about a proposal, but that was the last music I listened to.

Air America Radio. :) Burroughs is great on CD: funny and random and eminently quotable if you don't mind people thinking you're as crazy as he was.

At the moment...nothing. But let me plug in and see what pops up.....

LOL...advertisement....well....just have to wait and see....

Slaughter, You are the one. 1992

As sample:

Lookin' back on time
Ooh we had it made
Together we had the world
Just you and I
It begins to fade

Now I spend my time
Wishin' you were here with me
Oh I wanna tell you now
Wanna tell you now
Just look into my eyes

You are the one
The one I need
To make my dreams come true
Oh you should know
I love you so
And I can't go on without you

Radiohead's Punch up at a Wedding for me, right now. No romance there - these things always end in tears - but I dig the piano and bass lines, and vocal layering. Nice sound. :)

These fuckers rock in a way that very few bands have done in the past 5 years.

That's the one.

It's not so weird that he is on CD. I have 3 CD's from a book called Poetry Speaks, and contained therein are recordings of now dead poets reading their work, from Tennyson to Plath. And considering how uber-cool the likes of Burroughs, Keruoac, Ginsberg, and the rest of the Beat Gen were, and how they were connected with the Jazz and Be-Bop scene, and their influence still....makes sense to me that their would be recordings of Burroughs collaborating with various musicians. Hell, yeah. :pimp:

I saw it out there, and took a punt on it. I am not disappointed so far.

Right now, I'm listening to the legendary 5/8/77 performance of the Dead at Barton Hall at Cornell. Considered by many deadheads to be the finest show they ever did, it's certainly up there. The jam at the end of the cover of Dancin' in the Streets is absolutely breathtaking.

I managed to get my hands on the Jaco Pastorius anthology which is a two CD set. It has "stuff' on it from when he played with Pat Metheny and as a member of Weather Report as well as some home recordings and live solo material. In case your wondering, Jaco is considered to have been one of "the" most talented jazz bassists of all time.

Indeed. :yup:

Sadly, he died penniless - beaten to death in the gutter. :(

His demise was quite tragic indeed. It seems as though he had some really deeply rooted psychological problems that lead him to an unhealthy place in life. According to most of what I've read, Pastorius was “getting himself together” when that douche bag bouncer beat him into a coma. Some “alpha male jack-off” (borrowing a phrase from the master George Carlin) ultimately killed a fine creative individual whose equal in the world of jazz bass has yet to be heard.

This second it's Locust's version of Master and Servant. Mmm, lounge. Well, actually the guy who's here to fix the copier is louder than my music. I wish he'd hurry up.

Red Blood Gothic Radio on Live365. An excellent station, flawed only in that it occasionally plays Evanescence. :(

Currently playing Moon Dream Meadow Allegory by Sky Cries Mary.
