Use thou imagination. Pretend there are pictures here because blogger is a thorn in the side of all that lives and it refuses to post the cool pics I had ready to beautify my written flakes of inverted dandruff. And I like the moron I am hit my computer yelling come on dammit like it's gonna make their sorry ass picture uploader work. Ahh dahellwitit, I'll post them later.....if it'll let me.
First up today, a very cool exploito fest released on the Smash label. It's called Psychedelia---A Musical Light Show by the Mesmerizing Eye. I have not a clue who anyone in the M.E. is and frankly, I don't care. This one is top shelf exploito and I came out of my usual catatonic state and muttered an ever so slight yippee when I found this. The kids wondered why the old man was all wound up and I'll tell ya. All the bells and whistles of the best of the genre, sub-par Hendrixesque solos, sound effects and you've got my kind-o-fun. Sorry bout the bitrate on this one(160), it ain't my rip and I have no idea's whose rip it is. But it still sounds good for comin' off-a that there second (third maybe?) rate vinyl that Mercury and Smash records tended to press this kind of item on. (I've seen mint lookin' slabs sound like a campfire was cracklin' in the mix. Rumor was all the good vinyl went to Jerry Lee Lewis and even Linda Gail couldn't get no satisfaction). But this is fairly trippin' stuff so I'll shut up and let you guys hear it.
And for my second post of the day, it's the 2nd and last elpee from those theramin lovin' freaks called Lothar and the Hand People. It's called Space Hymn. I posted the first LP, Introducing many travels ago and it has all the bonus stuff you'd get if you bought the CD with their complete recordings, so if you put that and this together, you got it. Did that make sense? Anyhee, needless to say this stuff is el-fun-o and I like it mucho much. So, I can only hope that you will too.
And if you don't, I have posted, with permission, some honest -to - God NWOBH stuff posted below that Bigfoot Kit sent, along with an EP of his great band Bigfoot which explains his nick much better than anything else ever would. I'll let him take over comments at this point.
BIGFOOT - "It Feels Like This" mini album (2004).
