The hair. The hand

Martin Rowson


Donald Trump filed with The Federal Electoral Commision for 2020 reelection five hours after being sworn in as President

Several MAJOR implications. If officially a candidate, Trump can use candidate status to curry favor with PACs, businesses, other organizations because he's acting as Trump the candidate, not Trump the president. Different rules apply. Even more importantly it completely changes how non profits can handle him. 501c3's cannot "campaign" or risk losing nonprofit status It means they can't speak negatively about him. Imagine @PPact having to convey risk to Planned Parenthood w/ limits on how to address This throws nonprofits' strategy for next few years into chaos. They must figure out how to work against Trump w/o "campaigning." and further muddies the already swampy ethical waters of financial gain, conflicts of interest & business transactions


...and it begins

Burnt Friedman & Jaki Liebezeit - 182-11 (LIve Weissensee Berlin August 2015)

He truly was such an extraordinary drummer who just made it all look so easy

The Bug presents Killing Sound Chapter 6: Blue

I turned to the blue side many moons ago… maybe as an only child Gemini it was inevitable from birth, lol. But my favourite musical colours have always been red for fire and blue for immersion.
Maybe it’s because misery seeks company and we all feel better knowing someone else has been to the same zones of null. Maybe it’s the craving to know someone else is articulating loss so perfectly, but BLUE is a racially universal state of mind that unites us all in the need for release… and the need to drop some tears occasionally. The anatomy of melancholy is irresistible to me. There’s a beauty in sadness that goes way beyond self-pity, and magnetizes me to the purest of emotions. So many of these tracks have been my companions at difficult times, and some have even provided the catalyst for Bug eye droplets hitting the floor.
In this instance this mix is as deep as the ocean to me and twice as welcoming.

Tribute To Jaki Liebezeit (RBMA Mix)

Influential drummer, Can member and krautrock pioneer Jaki Liebezeit passed away on January 22, 2016. Kirk Degiorgio honors Jaki’s metronome style of playing with a two hour mix of his finest works alongside Can, Manfred Schoof, David Sylvian & Holger Czukay, Jah Wobble and more.
A founding member of legendary krautrock outfit Can, Jaki has been called “one of the few drummers to convincingly meld the funky and the cerebral” by Jeff Norman. Born in 1939 in Dresden, Liebezeit started out as a jazz musician. Spending the early 1960s in Barcelona, he played with Chet Baker and Tete Montoliu, joined the Manfred Schoof Quintet a little bit later, shaped European free jazz and finally took a ride into the psychedelic realm with Can – a group that always stressed that they were anything but a rock band. The ’80s saw Liebezeit as a member of Phantomband, working with Jah Wobble, Depeche Mode or Brian Eno, and forming drum ensembles such as Drums Off Chaos and Club Off Chaos. In recent years, most of all, his efforts with Burnt Friedman have been the center of attention
1 Manfred Schoof Quintett – Adjustment (CBS)
2 Can – Halleluhwah (Spoon)
3 Can – Vitamin C (Spoon)
4 Can – Future Days (Spoon)
5 Jail – You Can Help Me (Harvest)
6 Michael Rother – Flammende Herzen (Sky)
7 Richard Schneider Jr. – Samba Trip (Harvest)
8 Michael Rother – Fontana Di Luna (Sky)
9 Jah Wobble / Jaki Liebezeit / Holger Czukay – How Much Are They? (Island)
10 Irmin Schmidt – Endstation Freiheit (Titelmusik) (Spoon)
11 Mau Mau – MM Dub (Polydor)
12 Dunkelziffer – Strom (FünfUndVierzig)
13 Gabi Delgado – Victim (Virgin)
14 Irmin Schmidt – Mörderlied (Spoon)
15 Jah Wobble / The Edge / Holger Czukay – Hold On To Your Dreams (Island)
16 Mauro Pagani – Puck (Fonit Centra)
17 Plaza Hotel – Schön Sein In Uniform (Delphin)
18 David Sylvian & Holger Czukay – Plight (The Spiralling Of Winter Ghosts) (Venture)
19 Jah Wobble’s Invaders Of The Heart – Raga (Island)
20 Jan Wobble – Umbra Sumus Part I (30 Hertz)
21 David Sylvian & Holger Czukay – Mutability (A New Beginning Is In The Offing) (Venture)

With the spate of very hip top ten teenage album lists on Facebook recently I thought I'd make a mix of the sort of stuff I was listening to at the halfway point of being a teenager. So here's what could have pissed off my parents through the bedroom wall one night in July 76. (How LOUD could a Dansette go?) Funny tho how we listen to music differently now...I still know every word to these songs but count yourself lucky you didn't hear me singing (?) along in the last couple of hours
