That Wonderful A Bomb Beat

Monday, November 20th, 2017

I have spent an inordinate amount of time the last five years listening to, where one of the options is 50/60s monster and halloween rock. I listened to it a year straight in 2012-2013, which says something about both me and the station.

Anywhoo, as a fan of sonic archeology, it has been a British Museum, including little numbers like “A Bomb Bop” by Mike Fern and the Del Royals.

One of the few good things to come out of Morgan City, LA.

Malcolm Young, rocking rocker from AC/DC, finally banged his head out of the prime material plane. As they said, “It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll,” and one thing that I will always give AC/DC is that they never changed their sound. Sometimes it was more produced, but it never wandered too far from high-voltage rock and roll. When you can play the same beat for more than forty years, and survive songs like “Mistress for Christmas,” you are doing something. Even Slayer went Nu-metal for that one album.

The other thing I always liked about AC/DC: Richard Ramirez stole is nickname from them, and there aren’t many bands that can say that.

I’m sick of everything that’s around me

I give you a Frigg-a-Go_go classic:

Sick of being up, sick of being down, sick of being in this town.

Way Back Machines

My prime material plan life has moved to the Steel City, and as I was moving, I found quite a trove of old flyers from the NOLA days. For example, this little number:

No remembrance of Dead and Gone or White Men. Hawg Jaw will show up a lot in these posters, and I might still have a burnt copy of a Face First CD somewhere. If not, I am sure MK-Ultra has one.

Also, no show ever started at 9 pm at the Dixie. If I had to make a guess, I would say that the opening band started at 10:30 or so.

More Finds for Our Minds

From 1964, Mike Rabin and the Demons’ one and only record and hit, if by hit you mean 100 people knew it at the time.

Many rockin’ rockers know The Open Mind’s “Magic Potion” but I was recently struck by how this song prefigures Hawkwind; it is released on 1968 and Hawkwind doesn’t become a band until summer 1969. The riff might as well be “Master of the Universe.”
