Avatar Thu. 6/19/14 11:06am chinaski:

From WikiP:
In 1980, Mick Jagger wrote a song about Spider Sabich's death that was intended to be on the Rolling Stones' album Emotional Rescue. The song, titled "Claudine", carried lyrics that painted a graphic picture of some of the more salacious aspects of the affair and killing. However, it was deemed too controversial and was removed, although it was included on several bootleg Rolling Stones albums. In November 2011, the track "Claudine" was released on the Rolling Stones' deluxe reissue of their album Some Girls.

Kotto's death scene anticipated Blue Man Group by about 30 years.

@snortley: Some people might wish the same fate on Blue Man Group at this point.
Avatar Thu. 6/19/14 11:22am herb.nyc:

i know a real nice man, from senegal, looks exactly like YAPHET KOTTO! and yrs ago, i read a worker's account of his job at detroit auto plant: "rivethead". BEN HAMPER is his name, i believe. worth checking out.

Had to look up who's playing with Herbie on this, Sonny Sharrock is killing it on the guitar on this one.

whenever I put on a respirator I think of kotto's character and trust the same fate does not await me
  Thu. 6/19/14 11:23am Dean:

Sonny Sharrock?
  Thu. 6/19/14 11:24am Dean:

Gah. Need to learn to read...

@ andy: It's impossible to watch that scene without feeling a little bit like you're suffocating
  🎃 Thu. 6/19/14 11:26am 12539:

Sure, Herbie can play, but can he play standing on just one leg?

It's all worked out cause you played this Joe!

@Guido: That is real news to me! Now if only The Ones had split a record with The Zeros. We'd have the origin of digital music.

@Matt: Hah! I sure hope it does.
Avatar Thu. 6/19/14 11:41am herb.nyc:

speaking of SWAG, oh to wear a tom scharpling poncho (like, today!). and speaking of dj trouble, did she put this on the turntable? great version!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 6/19/14 11:42am Joe McG:

@herb and Andrew and all: We're on the case! Next week we move into Swag Overdrive and a lot of stuff will be leaving Ol' Monty over the next couple of weeks. Hang tight.

@andrew / joe - I thought I heard that all swag should be out by mid July? No?
Avatar Thu. 6/19/14 11:44am herb.nyc:

at thrift shop, i got a 99cent yellow poncho. i will copy the tom scharpling design on it and flood the gray market. i reckon wfmu will get a %.

The zeros were a secret project by the very nature.

... not so secret, but not of 60ies Berlin.
  Thu. 6/19/14 11:50am Dean:

I know well the San Diego Zeros, having heard them "back in the day." I assume, though, that with synthesizers time travel is not that big of a deal.

@andre: just got mine this week!
