Share the Media

The week peels away like the back of a Bondi surfer and I am tired but happy. Another thesis chapter was submitted this week. Autumn has flat-lined and winter appears to be ready to enter the scene. Old friends appear on social media sites and others are expected in the flesh in the coming week.
I am ready for free media as I am sure you are as well:

Angus MacLise (1938-1979) Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda (1968) Brain Damage in Oklahoma City (rec. 1968-1972) and from Aspen No. 9
Angus MacLise (Bridgeport, Connecticut, March 4, 1938 - Kathmandu, Nepal June 21, 1979) was an American percussionist, composer, poet, occultist and calligrapher probably best known as the first drummer for the Velvet Underground. MacLise was a member of La Monte Young's Theater of Eternal Music, with John Cale, Tony Conrad, Marian Zazeela and sometimes Terry Riley. He contributed to the early Fluxus newspaper VTre, edited by George Brecht, and was also an early member of The Velvet Underground, having been brought into the group by flatmate John Cale when they were living at 56 Ludlow Street.

Comets on Fire. The Black Cassette

The Comets On Fire "Black Cassette". This sucker is so rare and forgotten I didn't even give it a catalog release number on my Silver Currant label when we made them. Just its number out of 21 made. Most often in Comets, Noel or I would make these at 2:30 am the night before heading out on tour and we'd just pull old rehearsal recordings from out of a box of hundreds that we have and find a couple killer 20 minute free jams and dub one on each side and there you go. So that's what this is. The cover is made of black lightweight construction paper, the comet symbol is burned into the paper by bleach, the Comets title is silk screened in gray ink and it was numbered in pencil.

Its not where you think it is.........
