Pussy Galore - Oven Bait

(Adult Contemporary Recordings ACR 007 C-60, edition of 10, 1986; out of print.)



Ignore the eBay iterations, as they're rife with error, choked in catarrh. This very limited release was never known as Unauthorized Oven Bait; rather, that was a corruption of an Adult Contemporary Recordings ad which alluded to a new sub-label christened "Adult Contemporary Unauthorized." As might be expected, the sound quality of the 5th-to-50th generation re-boots offered therein is usually well south of dire.

Here's the actual release version, transferred from the master metal bias cassette to laptop at 96,000 Hz/24 bit, then ripped to mp3 at 320 kbps. The original j-card artwork is rescanned above. (Half of the ten copies distributed were shipped with handwritten covers, as was the producer's mid-80s wont...)

Download, share, etc.

There's no honor among Glas-addled, ex-bandmember bootleggers, but shove such dislocations aside -- this racket was deserving of multiple Pulitzers.

Personnel: Jon Spencer, Julie Cafritz, John Hammill, Dave Hair, Peter Hayes, and Tom Smith.

McCain's most telling political moment:



--

An explication, courtesy of Garance Franke-Ruta's July 25th entry on the Washington Post's campaign blog The Trail:

"There's been a great deal of online and televised merry-making at Sen. John McCain's expense over a video clip of him going food shopping yesterday in Bethlehem, Penn., while Sen. Barack Obama was in Berlin. The wags at 23/6 Media have gone so far as to dub McCain's remarks on the surge of troops in Iraq delivered in the cheese aisle of a supermarket his "Dairy Case Address." Now further footage from that fateful trip -- featuring an applesauce avalanche, above, has hit the blogs.This is an instance of television leading the way for the online masses. The applesauce clip was played by CNN yesterday, then picked up by Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" last night (the McCain segment starts 3:05 minutes in). And it's still making the rounds on TV -- MSNBC just played the clip this afternoon."

Mitchell Brothers was our fourth album...



---

As some of you may be aware, we dashed out Mitchell Brothers in a day on a dare from Ned Hayden, the erstwhile Action Swinger and Audible Hiss (the short-lived, Caroline-distributed imprint) COO. Hayden thought our recordings a trifle mediated, so he threw down an ill-fitting, provocatively rust-dappled gauntlet:

"Write, record, mix, and master an album in an afternoon, and I'll release it."

Oops... Wish we hadn't taken the bait. Not dire, but five-sixteenths malodorous. (It was necessarily rushed.)

(Our 2007 Savage Land release, Les Tricoteuses, provided an opposing perspective.)

--

Syd Garon's design for the Mitchell Brothers digipak featured a cover inset photo of the titular siblings, and stills derived from the films referenced in the album's song titles. Caroline's lawyers flipped when they saw the artwork, and demanded we make changes. A compromise design was assembled and accepted; Syd's original version (from an old, low-res scan) can be seen below. Apologies for the poor quality of the image.

An Intervention... (repost)

(Amended September 11, 2007. The original archive was deleted after I discovered coding irregularities; the eight tracks - remixed again late on the 10th - were uploaded early this morning. Thus, this is version two of the Original Doll/Art Ensemble/Tarkus post.)

Earlier today I intercepted eight tracks from the forthcoming (and as-yet-untitled) Britney Spears album.* A few of the songs seem unfinished ("Baby Boy" especially), but the majority appear to have received the usual dollop of high-dollar (albeit obdurately 'n' B-squad-derived) gloss.** Joni Mitchell won't be quaking in her Earth Shoes, but then "Big Yellow Taxi" is no "Oops!... I Did It Again." Reverse caveats noted, the music isn't terribly inspiring, despite inherent malignancies. If Brit really earns $767,000 per month, shouldn't she be able to fucking buy George Martin? Chris Thomas? Genya Raven? The girl needs help, plain and simple.

You're all doubtless aware of Ms. Spears' performance at last evening's VMA kudocast...

I propose Britney dump the woeful drip-hop tropes and drive the Escalade into less familiar culverts.

*(The new album - at least according to the information encoded into the mp3s I downloaded - appears to be titled Original Doll. For the purposes of this intervention, I have used that designation.)

**(Blackout was eventually selected as the title of the album...)

Down in the Light (Ketamine Mix)...

(Amended July 11, 2008.)

Guten Tag, Freunde,

It's been a few weeks since our last real chat, so pour yourself a cup of oven cleaner, have a slice of salmonella pie (freshly baked!), and try as best you can, despite the excruciating pain, to relax...

You'll note we've just uploaded a quartet of tracks from our fledgling BMLS (Blinde Männer Laufen Schnell) series. They're sense-memory calculations, basically, extracted from music we listend to on our recent tour, and spliced into/around/between/beneath sampled bits of the master recordings for our forthcoming Cortege opus. For this new series, TLASILA was: Rat Bastard, Ben Wolcott, Don Fleming, Chris Grier, Gaybomb, Dimthingsshine, Graham Moore, Misty Martinez, Nandor Nevai, Mark Morgan, Patrick Spurlock, and yours imprudently. Download, squirm, and excrete.

Time to sort out the album queue... We begin with The Cortege, the album we recorded nearly a year ago at Sonic Youth's Think Tank studio in Hoboken, NJ. Rat Bastard's mix takes a docu-vérité approach to the material, massing solo, duo and trio recordings into a faux-live, early 90s-style scumrock spectacular. It's all first and second takes, no sweeteners or fillers, and flat notes and tempo shifts be damned. It fucking rules. Coming soon to vinyl via Blossoming Noise.

In 2009, our Mr. Fleming will be re-assessing the Cortege's beeps and squeals for a doctoral clinic on 99th-century ass-kicking (und arse-licking). We'll keep you posted on his progress, the eventual release and related info, etc. His version will complete the informal Cortege trilogy.

As for the "version" mix of the Cortege recorded by Graham Moore and myself in Atlanta earlier this year, we're pleased to report that the album, titled Épuration, will be issued on a very cool European imprint later this year. Don't want to give details away just yet...

Thus, Rat's mix is the first part of the triptych, its version (as in the gilded era of dub) will comprise the second panel, and Don's Imax/Hollywood mix will be shotgunned across the third. Three (cross-eyed) visions of the same material, three dramatically different results...

Next, we can report with certainty that Menlo Park Recordings, our primary label since 1995 (!), has given the go-ahead for a TLASILA retrospective box set. There'll at least be four discs (but perhaps six, and maybe even an accompanying DVD), split into two volumes that will be issued separately. The first volume, due late in '08 (?), will cover the years 1990-2001, and the second will pick up with the Wigmaker in 2002 and skid to a stop in the electro-boogie present. (I suppose both halves will then be zipped into a commemorative Hazmat suit or antique wicker suitcase with the obligatory 700-page booklet...) We're probably only going to include one track per each officially released album, so expect a motherlode of unreleased actinium. Very thankful to Menlo Marc, and psyched, as always.

Also nearing completion after a gnarly five-year, thousand-tear gestation is Reconquer Sleep or Disappear, the full-length TLASILA/Kevin Drumm collaboration. It's set to fly via Savage Land later in 2008. I've worked on this fucker in restless spasms of feverish (in)activity for longer than I dare remember. Most folks expect certain sounds from M. Drumm, a particular approach from To Live and Shave in L.A., and my task, as I saw it, was to disrupt those notions, and upend expectations while raising the aesthetic bar beyond the reach of puny mortals. I've likely failed, but it was worth having the opportunity to stab our respective CVs with a pair of rusty garden shears...

EuroShave exemplar and breakcore megastar Sickboy Milkplus has brokered a deal with sterling schiz-tronic imprint ___ ___ (it's a little too early to reveal the label's identity) for a vinyl long player. Sickboy will produce the album, which will feature contributions from both the American core unit and our upstart continental comrades. Venetian Snares will be apparently be doing a remix for the album... Bliss.

Lots of other albums, singles, and whatnot on the horizon, including the Melted Mailbox 7xCD3 box, the Important 2xCD remix joint, the split 12" on Isolated Now Waves, a split 3" CD with Torino titans Harshcore (for the Dokuro label), a collab with Nana RapeBlossom, a split C-60 with Demonologists, etc. And there's more, for fuck's sake, including albums we agreed to create for the various wild-ass label folk we met on the April-May death march.

OHNE news: there's definitely going to be a new studio album! Dave, Reto, Daniel and I have agreed to make it happen, and so it shall. We're looking at a probable 2009 release date, so I guess we won't be making that Ulan Bator gig that's been listed on OHNE's MySpazz site for 18 months... We'll keep you posted on our progress.

Finally, solo/TS news. I'll be moving to Europe soon, setting up camp with the lovely Cool Palm in Hannover. While there, I'll be preparing for the debut tour of my new trio with EuroShave alum Balázs Pándi and saxophonist Feri Kovács. (Those Hungarian cats know how to fucking roll. Just ask Nondor!) The tentative schedule has us meeting in Budapest for rehearsals, then taking a three-week stroll through Austria, Switzerland, Germany, France, and Italy, before doubling back to Hungary for a final blowout. We hope to cajole Atilla from the redoubtable Sunn 0))) to join us for the mop-up gig in B'pest...

Lastly, I'll be in NYC later in 2009 to record my first proper solo album... I've elided details, but expect what you may have remembered reading...

Our official website is still undergoing its usual post-tour recalibration, so please forgive us our sloth. You can always follow your old bookmarks to explore the site; the 2004-2008 links still work fine.

That's it for now. Stay cool, and be well.

Love,

Tom/TLASILA

On Faith and Its Antipode, Italian Techno...

Hello,

Dunno how many of you have actually seen a copy of Psycho Radio's 2006 remix of "Religion" from Public Image Limited's debut First Edition album, but it exists and it's worth hearing.



I didn't care much for the "Extended Original" mix (it groans under the burden of synthetic strings), but the "Tignino & Leo Mystic Dark Mix" makes a solid case for techno-trance larceny. It's imperfect (no Levene, Walker or Wobble, just Lydon's voice sampled from "Religion 1"), but it will do.



The version I'm sharing was scavenged from a BBC Radio 1 stream of an Annie Nightingale live set from 2007; given the vulgar realities of cross-fading and beat matching, I've only five of its eight minutes to share.

Should you care to add this opus to your larder, please, download it here.
