Mississippi Fred McDowell – Goin Down to the River
Jefferson Airplane – House at Pooneil Corners – Manhattan Rooftop Concert (1968)
Jean-Luc Godard filmed the band on a rooftop in Midtown Manhattan – December 7, 1968.
This week I have mostly been..
.. listening to Kaptain Kopter And The Twirlybirds at high volume and whilst in motion.
I have also listened to them at high volume whilst stationary and flailing my arms about. Current fave is a version of that whingebag Lennonâ€™s Rain – layers of grungey and massively heavy prehistoric planet-shifting riffs, dirty fuzzed-out guitars fornicating madly with each other, echoed drums stumbling towards triphop while looking sideways at acid, and lyrics almost indecipherable. Thereâ€™s about a minute of nonsense rubbish jolly musichall instrumentalÂ hoedown at the beginning, but then it hits and the rush is something else.
That and the ever-transcendental recordings of Burning Spear at Studio One.
