Here is a frickin awesome mix from our good friend, underground club owner, and mind warrior, Mr. Ass, aka Christ Sinister. Udagawa and Christ Sinister were part of Buffalo’s very own Knowmatic Sound System, throwing parties and raves, throughout the 90’s.

This is a perfect, building mix for the summer, with a ton of 80’s tracks, edits, plus future bangers, all mixed together, real smooth like. We love it! and we think you will too.

Wow. There goes a talented dude. Michael Jackson still to this day slays dancefloors all over the world. i will tip a cup to him indeed.

a favorite early Jackson Five tune here. sad when you think about all the sh*t he went through as kid, trying to please his dad. any way lets celebrate his life. you can be assured to hear a Michael Jackson retrospective at midnight tomorrow at the Gutter.

Here’s two, one real early and one late. Safe travels buddy.

Back Door Man!!!!

8 06 2009

acid_test

you know this one, written by Willie Dixon for Howlin Wolf, and the “backside” to his single Wang Dang Doodle (sounds extremely homoerotic, doesn’t it?) 

it is a bonafide classic, and covered here by a British group, the Muleskinners, in ’65. the original is killer, but this one stomps! Ian McLagan was in this group prior to joining the Small Faces.

the funkiest Jimi Hendrix

23 05 2009

jimi_hendrix_buddy_miles

since the most visited post on this site is the jimi hendrix and mighty mi post, i figured i would put another hendrix song on here. i guess people are still incredibly fascinated by the legacy of this young man. i wonder if he would still be as relevant today, if he had not burned so bright when he was here with us. for me, i like the early psychedelic-blues albums rather than the disjointed, (to me), fusion-blues jams that came later with the gypsies.

but here is an exception. the story goes that in 1969 the Last Poets were recording nearby when Hendrix and Buddy Miles were recording and an improptu jam ensued with Lightnin’ Rod taking a turn on the mic for the poem, doriella du fontaine. this is the shorter instrumental version here, but i think we can safely say that this is hendrix at his funkiest, and definitely proto-hip hop, albeit unreleased until 1993,  after hip hop was born.

Sitar Psych and David Axelrod

some mellow faves here, sit back relax, light the incense, assume the position (lotus), close eyes, set speed to outer space travel, and float away.

here is a little known heady sitar jam.

CHEOPS – SALEM BIBI

and an mind-blowing axelrod joint that is reminiscent of a pink floyd tune. featuring howard roberts on guitar. this was partly from some 60’s concept album sessions, and then revived in ’99 and released in 2001. it is named in tribute to dj shadow, after shadow’s sampling of him put him back on the map. blast off.

DAVID AXELROD – THE SHADOW KNOWS
