He's been...

It's because of Keith Levene that I have coveted a Travis Bean Wedge for many a year now. Thanks. From the Old Grey Whistle Test (sans Bob Harris... thank god), 1980.

Weekend ramble

The Brits speak English. I speak English (sort of). So why the hell are parts of last week's episode of Ashes To Ashes being subtitled this week?!? I could understand a little linguistic assistance if Philip Glenister was speaking French, but this seems a tad ridiculous and somewhat insulting.

I wish some of my neighbors were subtitled, though.

Hand 'em a random

The vikings knew not of the gastronomical grandeur that is New York style cheesecake. Oh, to have existed in pre-cheesecake times...

Though he doesn't play on the album, founding member Holger Czukay would have a hand in the production process on 1979's Can (bass duties provided by ex-Traffic member Rosko Gee).


A psychiatrist advised Malcolm Mooney to leave Can to prevent him from going, um, loony. Yeah... Before doing so Mooney would help sculpt the group's debut, Monster Movie, released in 1969.

So, how does your garden grow?

Different saxophonist but the song remains just as powerful. Still gives me goosebumps to this day.

Rich Kids

Glen Matlock's post-Pistols project with Midge Ure (who would later front Ultravox). The title track from their one and only album, which was produced by Mick Ronson.

From the ITV program Revolver, hosted by Peter Cook; 1978. The Rich Kids were purportedly a last minute replacement after PiL pulled out.

The Red Crayola

From their debut Parable of Arable Land (1967). The Red Crayola (later known as The Red Krayola) is Mayo Thompson and whoever else is at hand, which has consisted at various points of time members of Pere Ubu, Lora Logic, and Gina Birch of The Raincoats. Thompson also produced records by The Raincoats, Stiff Little Fingers, The Fall, Cabaret Voltaire, and Kleenex during his stint with Rough Trade Records.

The Meices

Had not seen this video in years, and this song has been stuck in the noggin for a couple of days. Ron Jeremy is also a bonus.

Oh, Susan, where art thou?

Music is a better noise, especially when Lora is involved.
