I've been writing intermittently over the last couple of days and ditching the bad stuff. No good stuff escaped the cull, because there wasn't any.
But I said I'd post up some Mp3 things, so I may as well. Have been scouring the big CD boxes looking for records that may be rare enough to Ebay. I've sold a signed copy of Bitter Suites to Succubi by Cradle of Filth, and there iss a prime candidate in JUNGLE EXOTICA , a compilation of 50's and 60's strip bar music. Or as the inlay puts it RIDICULOUS & GYRATIN' STRIP-HUMPERS WITH "ASIAN"/"EXOTIC"/"JUNGLE" ALLURE! It is at moments like this when I tend to think of Edward Said, and his classic work, Orientalism.
But in the moments following, I switch to girls pole dancing while wearing cheap looking fake tiger fur. I like to mix it up a little, and throw in some cheap irony to boot. Why not?
Anyway, here are the few standouts from this exceptionally underpowered and overlong R&R compilation. Be advised that most of these tracks are drawn from quiet-ish vinyl masters, so will need to be turned up loud for full effect.
The Continental Cousins - Kana Kapila
The Gaylads - Ah So!
Ganiman and his Orientals - Come with me to the Casbah
