An ancient lunatic reigns in the trees of the night. Remember when we were in Africa? I can't seem to find a cigarette I can stay with. Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, 1968.

THUNDERS/HEARTBREAKERS



Posted by denimdemon.

Early 80s, middle school: I trade my 8-track copy of BLIZZARD OF OZZ for a vinyl version of the Ramones END OF THE CENTURY ... makes sense, I don't even own an 8-track player (who does? it's the 80s, gramps, get with it) and "RNR Radio" sounded great on that K-Tel comp my stepsister had. But once I spun the LP at home, I was devastated, felt ripped-off and called my buddy Shawn post-haste -- "take it back, there an't even any GUITAR SOLOS on it!" Give me a break, okay, I went from Randy to Johnny without any mid-way point, it was like being punched underwater. Still, it was this number, "Chinese Rocks" that found itsway into my head before that afternoon was even cool. At this point I didn't know what "digging a Chinese ditch" meant, but it rhymed with "hot as a bitch" and that sounded pretty boss at the time, plus that fuckin' riff ... I fell quickly into lockstep with the Ramones (except for "Baby I Love You," I just didn't understand that one at all) and that's why I present you all with this Johnny Thunders video of the same song. You got a problem with that logic? Huh?

DR. XERON AND THE MOOGULATORS



Right now, in Lansing Michigan, my wife and my best friend are watching the Moogulators play live and eating really good Mexican food. Right now, in Seattle Washington, I'm watching a videorecording of the Moogulators on YouTube and thinking about frying up a steak. The circle of life, man.

HORROR HIGH



Posted by BleedingSkull.

And if you have a few minutes to waste (or spend, whatever), dig Bleeding Skull -- Spooky Trash From Beyond The Grave, an invaluable source for students of unique cinema. Nowhere will you learn more about RUNAWAY NIGHTMARE, EDGE OF THE AXE or SPLATTER UNIVERSITY ... er, except here, of course.

M.O.T.O.



Starring Tim Ford on drums during his lighthearted Chicago p-rock days. A few years later, Tim discovered the lucratic GLBT market, moving to Hollywood and earning millions as a member of Jinx Titanic (note: Tim does not appear in this video, which might be considered too gay for some gay people).

TWO FROM SID DAVIS

Educational filmmaker Sid Davis specialized in paranoid safety stories that strove to terrorize impressionable youngsters into following the rules. Initially financed by a loan from John Wayne, Davis made ultra-low budget films decrying drunk driving (THE BOTTLE AND THE THROTTLE), narcotics (THE TERRIBLE TRUTH), child molestors (THE STRANGE ONES) and homosexuals (the astounding BOYS BEWARE).

But here's two anomolies in the Sid Davis collection ... a confusing kid's Christmas tale and a skateboard safety film from 1975 that features some boss vintage footage.

PLASMATICS

Part 1


Part 2


I remember at age 15 saving up my allowance and buying a record every other week while visiting my dad in Bay City, Michigan ... while he bowled I scoured the nearby mall and occasionally ventured a few extra blocks to check out this used vinyl joint some guy had opened up in his house. At one point I had Nugent, Sabbath, AC/DC, Ozzy, MC5, Ramones, Alice, and when I stumbled upon a cut-out bin copy of the Plasmatics' Metal Priestess, I thought I had finally found the record that would top 'em all, the crown jewel in my collection, the apex of heavy. Until I got the record home and listened to it, that is. Even as a particularly naive 15-year old, I knew I'd been had.

But I kept that record -- it's now a prized possession for the sheer numbskull nihilism at work, and I proudly own Wendy O. Williams' solo album too. Any woman who introduces a promotional video by declaring "smashing up expensive things makes me cum" deserves my respect. RIP, Wendy.

CRUCIFUCKS

Kalamazoo MI 1982


Akron OH 1983


Your pledge of allegiance is so fucking lame.

PRELUDE TO HAPPINESS

Warning: contains medical content:

COVEN

Jinx Dawson and her malevolent crew circa 1974 ... best known for their big hit "One Tin Soldier" from the BILLY JACK soundtrack, Coven's true element was soul-destroying drug/freak/rock like "Blood on the Snow." Be warned, this video clip might hypnotize you.

THE DOGS

Super-8 silence capturing the Dogs at Lansing Catholic Central High School in Lansing, Michigan, 1971. Soundtrack: the Dogs' "John Rock N Roll Sinclair," a standout in the small but vital Sinclairsploitation genre which features luminaries such as Allen Ginsburg, the Up and John Lennon.



If you got an hour to kill, dig as much as you can of Ten For Two, the perfect document of wrong-headed revolutionary thinking and a once-proud rock scene in decline.

GRAND FUNK RAILROAD

My recent urge to post videos found trolling through YouTube on my "blog" inspired this new space. Nothing more than me pointing in one direction after another with an infinite world of information at my fingertips.

Plus, this guy did it first, so I don't need to bear the burden of being an innovater. Innovator?
