Avatar Fri. 5/2/14 9:19am Doug Schulkind:

Pocomania leaned to the African side of things, its Pentecostal-style services owing an obvious debt to African possession ceremonies. Worshippers would internal linkdance counter-clockwise to powerful internal linkdrums while breathing very deeply; this "trumping" would sometimes brings on possession—the "little madness" that lent the church its name.

This was a big hit for the Dubliners in the Sixties as 'Seven Drunken Nights'. Ronnie Drew had a wonderful powerful voice.

One of the best espressos I ever had was at a small riverside cafe ... in Beloit, Wisconsin! WTF? It took forever, and it was worth waiting for. (That cafe has since gone out of business, sadly.)

On that same train ride, I shared a couchette with four other people. (It had two sets of triple-tier bunk beds.) In the cabin where my friend Dan and three members of another family, two elderly parents and their grown son. The elderly father was tubercular and for the entire ride was coughing up phlegm into a plastic baggie.

I drank a lot of espresso that trip.

have you heard Debo Band, a contemporary unit out of Boston?

I first learned about Slim Gaillard in an American Splendor comic. This one:

Yes, my FMU colleague Rob Weisberg has played them quite a bit.

Just thought I should give you fair warning. The next selection comes from an LP called "Year of the Iron Sheep."

Nice "Pal Joey" reference, still b/p.

Sometimes a "remix" of something African means adding "Dance Floor Training Wheels". IN other words, a heavily pronounced beat, added,

OK, finally got here. Good morning Doug, drummers, pickers & grinners.
Avatar Fri. 5/2/14 11:15am Doug Schulkind:

@Alex in Illinois
The wisdom of adding a dance beat to an African recording seems very coals to Newscastlish to me. (I am being kind. I don't want to say what I REALLY think of doing that.)

Hope to get your ears grinning, Carmichael!

"Ethiopium" doesn't show up in Tom Lehrer's "Elements" song, but it should.

I hope all your paint is dry. The next selection will otherwise peel it. In a good way.

This Yosuke Yamashita Trio record — which has been just blowing me away lately — has the best or maybe second best cover of Albert Ayler's "Ghosts" I've ever heard. It is miraculous.

It doesn't do windows.

Akira Sakata blasting!
Avatar Fri. 5/2/14 11:28am Doug Schulkind:

While this record is billed as a "Trio" performance, actually an additional horn player (Gerald Oshita along with Akira Sakata) is present. Not only that, but elsewhere on the record, a large troupe of traditional butoh musicians/dancers appear. Mindfuckingblowing.

Do they get their inspiration from the Hampton Grease Band's Halifax?

Is this JB cover downloadable somewhere?
Avatar Fri. 5/2/14 11:47am Doug Schulkind:

@Alex in Illinois
NO! My dear friend (and a friend to all who love music) Adam Lore tipped me off to a current eBay listening of this record. The listing provided full-song downloads, so I grabbed them!!!!!!!
  Fri. 5/2/14 11:48am Andujar:

love the JB cover!
Avatar Fri. 5/2/14 11:49am Doug Schulkind:

@Helen of Schenectady
I found it on an eBay listing. Not sure if it is still posted. Go search. If you can find it, email me and I will send you both Fadaul tracks!

This offer goes for everyone!

Every with a seat belt is advised to put it on before the next, and, sadly, final, track commences...

Helen, send me an email and I will send you the tracks!

You absolutely MUST go to Youtube after the show and watch the video of this performance. Billy is for some inexplicable reason wearing an absurdly large cowboy hat.
