The Sound of Criss Cross - Classics Moog Indigo (1973, FR, electronic) 
Saturday, September 23, 2006, 07:40 PM - Music, - FR, English
The coming weeks I try to upload an electronic record every day.
Electronic for me means synthesizers, sound effects, weird noises.
Once a week an lp, the other days singles.

Today I start with an lp with popular classic melodies performed by an orchestra and an arp synthesizer, not a moog as the title might suggest.



Side 1:
1 L'Arlésienne (Ouverture) [2:47]
2 Sonate XI [2:39]
3 Le Tambourin [2:31]
4 Le Barbier De Séville (Air De Figaro) [2:31]
5 Danse Norvégienne N° 2 [2:46]
6 Guillaume Tell (Ouverture) [2:28]

Side 2:
1 Sonate Pathétique (Adagio Cantabile) [3:38]
2 Marche Turque [2:14]
3 Habanera (Extrait De Carmen) [2:44]
4 The Fifth Season [2:40]
5 Badinerie (Extrait De La Suite En Si Mineur) [2:16]
6 Symphonie N° 40 [3:21]

All arranged by 'Johnny Glider'.
More odd than good.

A real good one, you can feel the drive and the live atmosphere.

Very solid band, nice covers.

2 - Get out of Denver [3:52]

Hoe kazig kun je gaan?
Het hoesje kon wel ontworpen zijn door Jaap van der Zwan.



Gekregen van die fijne vrienden van mij.
Voor de liefhebber.

From behind the cabinet: Rebel Force - Mix Gone (reggae/dub) 
Wednesday, September 20, 2006, 09:14 PM - Music, - ??, English
Deliberately vague.
A-side is Root's Man by Ta-Teacher Love.
B-side is Mix Gone by Rebel Force, but clearly a dub version of Root's Man.
Arrangement by Bob West, no writer mentioned.



Got it on a clearance sale.

Nice idea: a Commodore 64 orchestra 
Wednesday, September 20, 2006, 06:15 PM - Music, English


But I expected an orchestra whose instruments are Commodore 64s.
This is a concert where a traditional ensemble plays melodies of Commodore 64 games.
:-(

Van achter de kast: Paul Tornado - Van Agt Casanova (1977, NL, Punk/New wave) 
Tuesday, September 19, 2006, 07:49 PM - Music, - NL, Nederlands
Kennen we hem nog, die vreselijke van Agt?
Was voor mij reden om te roepen dat ik ging emigreren. Nooit gedaan natuurlijk.
Dit plaatje was wel aardig, refereerde aan de maatregel om in sexbioscopen maximaal 49 bezoekers toe te laten. Was een goed idee, zo zijn de Peepshows ontstaan.



De b-kant (Ik wil jou zijn, mijn idool) vond ik beter, er liepen toen nogal wat Sid Vicious klonen rond.
Dit is de heruitgebrachte single uit 1981, de b-kant wordt wat vroeger afgebroken.

Dit is al de derde nederlandse band die ik post die blijkbaar niet voorkomt in het bestand van het Nationaal Pop Instituut. De andere twee waren Pat Cool en Instant Composer's Pool. Mensen, ga jullie werk doen!

From behind the cabinet: Those Naughty Lumps - Iggy Pop's Jacket (1978, UK, Punk/New wave) 
Monday, September 18, 2006, 07:04 PM - Music, - UK, English
A fairly unknown Liverpool band. Sounds much like the Members, but who knows them. Short punky songs with fender guitar.
I heard it on the radio. Every Saturday I listened to John Peel's Music on BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service) that was aired by a nearby military station in Germany.



I don't know how I got it. Maybe in Amsterdam (No Fun on the Rijnstraat) or Nijmegen or somebody brought it from London. No internet shops at that time.
