Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

It's really really good, LD! I just started listening to it and it's really hard to put down, so to speak. sorta makes me think of moondog, which makes sense; I know Garland was close with Harry Partch, and studied under Harold Budd

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/12/17 8:08pm doca:

Hey, Mr. Flash Strap! I was lurking here, but what a great song this is (and what a great show today). Haiti's hymn is really beautiful. I had the chance to teach a course on Atlantic History at the local university and one of the topics was the Haitian Revolution. What a beautiful (though bloody) history of that war for liberation, and the hymn and this song convey all that was at stake throughout it. It's such a shame the world has turned its back on Haiti for so long.

Excuse for the length of my comment!
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 8:12pm Flash Strap:

Hi Doca! always great to see you! I agree, I've been utterly fascinated with Haiti's all-too-overlooked history ever since reading The Black Jacobins. Haiti's is one of the most important national histories, and one of the most breathtaking histories of liberation. makes it all the more unforgivable each time we (by which I mean the US gov, not that it's an exclusive club) fuck them over

@Flash Strap: Unfortunately, Brazil is also part of that club of countries that have already fucked up Haiti. The struggle for autonomy still has a long way to come.

ashevile is getting too big for its britches. it is a nice area, but i sure wish i were more in an outlying town and didn't have to come to ashevegas daily.

I want to visit N. Carolina. I was there in the 80s, and I remember it smelling really good, like pine and tobacco but not at the same time.

I have to say, it does smell good here. and damn if it isn't still really beautiful, from the mountains to the coast. a million islands and a zillion waterfalls

Good to hear it smells nice, I wondered if maybe all the development had changed things.

smells like breweries downtown and nearby. haven't smelled tobacco drying around here in a long time. also smells a lot like vehicle exhaust a lot of the time too.

when i was leaving asheville (also in the 80s) i drove away feeling like i was leaving home, even though i'd calculated that i'd only spent 1/50th of my life there. i had decided to go to school for massage therapy, and i was told that it was illegal to massage someone of the opposite sex for money in nc.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/12/17 8:58pm melinda:

What I meant was cheap compared to the outrageously expensive cities, thus a draw for people from those places. Especially telecommuters who make higher salaries than the average person in a town like Asheville or Portland ME.

Friends of mine are embittered about rising rents, costs, eyesores, crowds and about enterprises and attitudes that are a bit too precious and trendy. These people are in the arts circles that contribute to some of the local attractiveness, however...in the strange dance and diagram of a locale's desirability dynamic.

Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 9:15pm Flash Strap:

@melinda: yeah the dance of gentrification is one of mandatory conscription, and each of us must play our part as we try to survive. crushed by the guilt of our obvious culpability, utterly unable to free ourselves from it; it sucks to be an artist in this system, where your very presence is exploited for increased rent and subsequent minority/lower-income displacement, a process that will inevitably displace you as well once the foundation is laid for tech or real estate developers to move in

Any stories about Bandon Oregon? We used to dream of moving there, years ago, but I'm sure it's been gentrified for a long time.

Re: Boyle Heights they are totally correct in seeing art galleries as a sort of threat, and yet it seems fucked up to forbid them from setting up or trying to drive them away. Also weird that one of the outfits under fire was, I believe, a print studio that had been helping local artists for years before the controversy.

What it means is that in order to avoid displacement of lower-income people, we have to adhere to cultural and economic segregation, and stay in our respective corners. Which also doesn't seem right, but yeah, it's the superstructure that leaves us with these lame choices.

COB is Clive's Original Band (from ISB), right?

NGH! yes indeed.

very few artists make me wish I could understand French as much as Ribeiro does, it's like her and Brel at the top of the list of people I want to understand in their native French
Avatar Thu. 10/12/17 9:40pm Flash Strap:

not that there's any real lyrics in this, I was just thinking about all her cool music that I don't understand

ISB is a huge fave of mine, but COB stuff is hard to find, I've only found some on some comps. Digging this Catherin Ribeiro +2Bis.

I don't hear lyrics, usually. I found a christian band cd I got when I was 16 and have listened to many times. It sounded like early REM (band was decent), but damn, I finally heard the lyrics, and they were so Xtian I had to toss it. I actually have decent Xtian bands like Starflyer 59 (who sound like mbv meets Jesus and the Mary Chain), but no weird lyrics.

Clive is Scottish. His music canons vary from all cultures.

ngh I often don't hear lyrics either. It can be embarrassing.
