Rusty Draper - Hip Monkey

How about that Planet Mondo? Mondo Insane-O!!!

Excuse me but I'm a bit tardy on my current events, as I've had a bit of the blogging blues, but in light of semi-new news news I'm sending this post out to the woman who had her face ripped of by a mad monkey named Travis: for anyone out of the loop, read about it here:

The Monkey or Chimp to be exact was shot dead by the fuzz after ripping the eyeballs out this woman's head.

And while I don't think it's particularly funny that this woman got hurt severely, you gotta ask yourself, do i REALLY want to go hang out with a 72 year old woman and her monkey? Let this be a lesson to everyone, monkey's aint hip, they don't want to wear a diaper, smoke cigarettes, fetch your fucking newspaper or clean out your drool cup; they just want to swing from trees in the jungle with other monkeys and rip your ugly face off!

So like, if yer pals have a 200 pound chimp and they invite you over for some "fun" maybe you should stay home....

As for Rusty Draper well... Whatever.

The Devil's Music Guest Mix - Planet Mondo - 33 And a 3rd Eye

Ok all you devil’s disciples out there, we have a very special guest mix for you all from Mr. Planet Mondo himself today and this (Good) Friday.

It’s something we been kicking around for a good long while now when me and the JJB strung together a few little ditties for him on one of his Funky Fridays!!!

When I 1st started this goofy @ss blog Mr. Mondo was one of the 1st few folks that would stop by and check out what we were dishing out over here and with high praise from someone who knows his music, as he does, his taste is impeccable, well; it gave me all the more incentive to keep it up! So many thanks Mr. Mondo!

And with any out further ado, here is the guest mix we’ve all been waiting for!

Before anything I must thank Devil Dick for the invite to rustle up a mix for his hot-rocking blog, following DD and Lady DD's swinging trip to Planet Mondo last year - and his patience in waiting for so many months for me to get it together.

So the essence of today’s mix, and the moment I'm hoping to capture with this patchwork of tracks, is that hair-bare era from 67-71 when mods became rockers, rockers turned hippy and hippies got heavy. With the mood of the tunes being one of frizzy hair, fuggy clubs, open-air freakouts and underground festivals. Topped off with a revved-up ‘Easy Rider’ attitude, dressed in suede tassle jackets, (maybe with patches about 'Pollution' and 'Peace'), granddad shirts - or for some Wild Things, perhaps a run out to a few 'scene' boutiques like Granny Takes A Trip, Mr Freedom (later the site of McClaren's proto-punk Sex/Seditionaries shops), I Was Lord Kitcheners Valet or The Chelsea Drugstore as referenced in the Stones lyrics and seen in Clockwork Orange......A few points worth watching out for on this trip around the tracks are...

The Pretty Things in disguise as Electric Banana

The Spencer Davis Group in mufti as The Murgatroyd Band

Prog-God Vangelis and man-mass Demis Roussos hiding in Aphrodite's Child

Norah Jones cousin Anandar Shankar,giving it some sitar hero twang on Jumping Jack Flash..

As well as influences on rock and punk's heaviest-hitters from The Creation - whose tune Through My Eyes was a sometimes Sex Pistols live number, and guitarist Eddie Phillips guitar bowing technique was later borrowed by Jimmy Page.

And finally The Pink Fairies - a hairy bunch of biker-rockers, that gigged with their biggest fans The Damned, at Punk's first recorded Festival, an event where the Fairies rechristened The Damned's Ray Burns as Captain Sensible..

But, for now that's quite enough pyshco-babble from me. So bloggers, blogettes, rockers, rollers, strummers and stoners, please - unlock your ears, free your mind, turn on, tune in and R.O.C.K out to...

Rose Davis - Sittin' and Drinkin' - Yes I've Been Crying

Ok, i took a few days off from posting but i have the day off today in honor of a bunch of dead assholes...
So today you get you get something i plan on doing a little bit of on my day off from work, “Sittin’ And Drinking” by Rose Davis.

“Sittin’ And Drinking” is blues number witth some good guitar work. It's a cover of a Christine Kittrell song. This was 1st issued in New Orleans on the "Play" label and later picked up after it became semi popular by Excello.

The flip is a little funky number with some strange horns and then shifts into a 50's kind of shuffle. Cool but strange tune.

Moon Mullican - I'll Sail My Ship Alone

Aubrey Wilson Mullican (March 29, 1894 - January 1, 1967), known as Moon Mullican, was an American country and western singer, songwriter, and pianist. However, he also sang and played jazz, rock 'n' roll and the blues. Indeed, Mullican was one of the main influences on the formation of rock 'n' roll, he predated what would be done in rock 'n' roll by 20 years. He was associated with the hillbilly boogie style which greatly influenced rockabilly; Jerry Lee Lewis cited him as a major influence on his own singing and piano playing.

Pee Wee King And His Golden West Cowboys - Waltz Of Regret

Devil month is up, i hope you enjoyed the Devil tunes @ the Devil's Music for the 1st month of 2009...?

Something a bit different today on some fancy green vinyl:

Pee Wee King, born Julius Frank Anthony Kuczynski (February 18, 1914 – March 07, 2000), was an American country music songwriter and recording artist. He was born in Milwaukee to a Polish American family and lived in Abrams, Wisconsin, during his youth.

King learned to play fiddle from his father, who was a professional polka musician. In the 1930s, he toured and made cowboy movies with Gene Autry. King joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1937.

In 1946, while the bandleader of the Golden West Cowboys, King, together with the band's vocalist, Redd Stewart, composed "The Tennessee Waltz", a song inspired by "The Kentucky Waltz" by bluegrass musician Bill Monroe. King and Stewart first recorded "The Tennessee Waltz" in 1948, and it went on to become a country music standard.

King's other songs included "Slow Poke" and "You Belong to Me". His songs introduced waltzes, polkas, and cowboy songs to country music.

He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1974. He died of a heart attack in Louisville, Kentucky, at age 86.

This aint the Tennessee Waltz or the Kentucky Waltz but the "Waltz of Regret"

Anyone want to dance with me...???
