LOW POWER

Here’s a mix I made a while back – I thought about it recently and wondered if it was still posted somewhere, and I looked around and found it. This pulls entirely from my vinyl LP collection, the length and breadth of it; there’s stuff here that made its way to me every conceivable way, from one side of the world to the other, over many years ( Wax Trax! Records in Chicago in the early 80s, a shop in Melbourne, Australia, a swap meet in Florida, the back of a dead man’s closet ). I got really into putting it together, over a couple of late nights.

* Listen to the oldest song in the world

 

* Nick Cave : I have to spend hours talking to fucking idiots like you

 

* It won’t be surprising if cultural historians look back on the first two decades of this century as The Era of Crazed Oral Gratification. I’m speaking of the fetishization of food, of cooking and eating, of watching other people cooking and eating, that has become omnipresent across all platforms, all media, all screens and all palates in our great nation.

 

* Rick James‘ insane life of sex, drugs, and music

 

* Let’s go to a British supermarket! Then let’s go to a German supermarket!

 

* The Horrible Jameson Affair refers to the allegations that the fast-living colonialist-for-hire and heir to a whiskey distilling empire, James S. Jameson, procured a girl solely to watch her being eaten. The accusations were made in 1890, two years after the alleged incident.

 

* In the process of collectors salvaging a vanishing history, their tastes and influence — and, for some, egomania and possessiveness — helped bring to a mainstream audience artists such as Robert Johnson, Skip James and Ma Rainey.

 

* The end of Chicago’s majestic, rat-ridden movie palace : in 1989, artist Mitch O’Connell visited the Chicago Loop’s last cavernous decaying grindhouse on its final day of operation

I was walking down Main Street, Memphis TN, and I saw this piece of paper lying on the sidewalk. What happened? Why am I always finding things that I shouldn’t? I guess I’ll never know. See also.

“ Because she ( Big ma ) hasn’t seen me the whole time I’ve been pregnant. I really want to see Auntie Ann’s face when she see’s the baby. I wonder how this baby will change my life. I really wonder Gerald is going to act when he see’s the baby. How his Mother is going to act. I really need to get a blood test so I can tell her whether its Geralds’ baby or not. I know she is going to be real happy if its his. I don’t know how he is going to feel after all of this shit that has went on. He asked me today what was taking the baby so long I believe he is thinking that it could be his, I really believe it is also. I hope it does look like him. Especially if its his. I know Peggy will tell me if it looks like Gerald or not. I know if it is Gerald’s and he’s not going to have his name I know he’s going to be very upset about that. “

* Second hand booze

 

* The strange and mysterious death of Mrs. Jerry Lee Lewis

 

* “ It doesn’t matter who you voted for, or how you feel about America’s exploits. When you travel abroad, you are equated by many with America’s bloodiest global displays. Your scraggly beard, rancid backpack and nonstop smile don’t change that. You are from the deadliest country in the world and everyone knows it. “

 

* I’m sure you hate those BuzzFeed click-bait lists as much as I do, but if you’re planning a trip to New Orleans, this is actually pretty up-to-date and accurate ( people are boycotting Booty’s, though )

 

* Massive, semi-invisible soundsystem

 

* A short history of the executioner
