International Man Of Amoré:

This one will hopefully appeal to anybody who dug the Exquisite Dogshit compilation I posted awhile back. It was originally posted back in July 19, 2007. Check HERE (the megaupload link still seems to be functional). For those of you who have already downloaded that set and have lived and laughed with it for awhile; the name of Tony Fabbris should be nothing new to you. His rousing politically-charged anthems signal a new, brave tomorrow; where freedom fighters charge ahead in the name of democracy as his tracks "God Bless New York" blaze out of the red white and blue stereo speakers on the battlefield.

Well, here is the entire Tony Fabbris recording entitled LOVE AND INSPIRATIONAL SONGS INTERNATIONAL. It's a rousing set of tunes among them are the already mentioned future anthem "God Bless New York" as well as "The Berlin Wall" (also featured on the E.D. comp.).........BUT WAIT--THERE'S MORE!!!!! Tony is not just a man with social justice and anti-terrorist tunes in his repertoire; he's also got love on the mind. Special lady...special lady...all the good stuff gets juiced up and stuck in the head.

Hell, there is even a FUCKING KARAOKE TRACK on here; just i case you want to bust out your own hot rendition of "The Berlin Wall" at your next fret party. Can't go wrong with this.

Not only that, but the man has moves. Do you know word went through my mind the second I discovered his videos on youtube? SCORE!

Somebody Slipped Me A Mickey:

Quick question:
Where do Tom Waits, The Replacements, James Taylor, Yma Sumac, Los Lobos, Bonnie Raitt, Syd Straw, Natalie Merchant, Michael Stipe, Sinead O'Conner, Buster Poindexter and Sun Ra all get together to express their love for vintage songs made popular by Walt Disney films?

Well, the answer is the STAY AWAKE compilation (originally released in 1988).
Thanks to visionary Hal Willner for giving us such a strange, delightful, and disturbing record.
Mind-boggling, on a few levels...even tho' it has it's pitfalls.


a few re-posting requests:


***If you have not seen the MAN-Z videos yet, I suggest you travel to the original post and take a good long look.

Up There, Out There:

The wonderful sounds of Earth's own magnetosphere, captured here by American radio hobbyist Stephen P. McGreevy, are blissful tones of shimmering harmonic radiance and weird nocturnal whistles. Stephen is a bonafide VLF expert/nerd and likes to share his recording experiences with those interested (just check his website for more geek-out info). These field recordings contain lots of crackle and hiss and are most certainly an amateur affair, but it all adds to the sheer charm and pleasure of the experience.

Allow yourself to get lost within these blissful late-night waves.

Cabaret Slot:

The year is 1967 and you don't have much else to do, really. So you enter a recording booth with a handful of semi-sweet songs and lay them down to tape and walk away, visit a cat, sample some coq au vin, and then casually go back to the lounge set. You're name is Sandie Shaw.
