{I’m}”Perfect Pitch” Makes Me Puke, & Micr0~bubbles Don’t Affect Tone?!? Rejecting the Past Creates a Future

      Perfect pitch is antithetical to the blues, and therefore to jazz, rock & roll and consequently punk & heavy metal. Although after Judas Priests’ ‘Sad Wings of Destiny’ album essentially pre-defined modern metal as having less and less to do w/ African or American roots in the blues, the earliest examples of heaviness w/ […] → Continue Reading {I’m}”Perfect Pitch” Makes Me Puke, & Micr0~bubbles Don’t Affect Tone?!?

David Bowie & Lemmy Kilmister ROCK [in] POWER…and how Mick Ronson helped Ziggy, Iggy & Lou

     All we can do is try to honor the 3 fallen wizards Ornette, Lemmy & Bowie. Mick Ronson sure gave it his best shot enabling the peak music by Bowie, Lou Reed and even helped mix Raw Power which David is either thanked or blamed for, yet Ronno prolly salvaged what he could from […] → Continue Reading David Bowie & Lemmy Kilmister ROCK [in] POWER…and how Mick Ronson helped Ziggy, Iggy & Lou

The Races Are All the Prize: Equality in Music from BeBop to Prog Metal

Xarrier or Xarriarai {alumni of the House of Xarrizoundz} has never taken the easy road. In the Blogosphere, it is too easy to fell into either the light fluff category {which would be our naval gazing fates if we only described our own specific musics} or the politico~mental asylum of overactive commentary responding to every […] → Continue Reading The Races Are All the Prize: Equality in Music from BeBop to Prog Metal

R U Hendrixified? Why Jimi’s Tone Rules Time & Space

Another neat gear guide to dating JH EXP pix is that the extra tall straight front Marshall cabinets were mostly out of backline by late ’67, early 68. They were from the JTM-45/100 KT66 valve (tube in UK) GZ34 valve rectifier series of amps and had the pre~Rolla Celestion greenbacks rated at 20w or was […] → Continue Reading R U Hendrixified?

IDIOT WIND: Sound & Fury, Signifying Nothing {Again}

       IDIOT WIND was an avant~noise tribal percussion quartet led by Lee S on sometimes heavily effected, urgently dynamic vocals. Some homemade instruments including metal percussion and an ‘anti-guitar’ called a Spring~0~tron {w/ metal coils in place of strings} played thru a 160 watt Peavey must have been a hellacious live experience! Their general contemporaneous peers […] → Continue Reading IDIOT WIND: Sound & Fury, Signifying Nothing {Again}

Harmolodics 101 For Dummies: Ornette Coleman’s unique music theory

1959: the ‘pianoless’ quartet {a rad concept in itself during post-bop}, Ornette on his white plastic alto sax, Don Cherry on a pocket trumpet, and a rhythm section of Ed Blackwell & Charlie Haden as fluid as the asymmetrical Harmolodic brass. Harmolodic was Ornette’s concept which democratically freed the bass and drums from roles of […] → Continue Reading Harmolodics 101 For Dummies: Ornette Coleman’s unique music theory

Quotes from composer Zbigniew Karkowski {Rock in Pax}

“ I don’t believe in thought and intellect, I’m convinced that truth cannot be explained in ordinary logical systems.

The real art communicates before it is understood, it contains the […] → Continue Reading Quotes from composer Zbigniew Karkowski {Rock in Pax}
