As promised, I managed to rip the Sushi rap from the flea market tape I found. Finding some kids beat boxing and rapping on a tape is golden, but a whole room full of them in a talent show setting is extra gold. Check it out:Ee Sushi Ga Hoshi!!!
Also be sure to check out the playlist
from last week
. The Ananda Shankar
gems we've been hearing lately are directly from the Captain's Crate
. There seems to be more where that came from along with a plethora of other media for consumption. Will have to check this out further.
That's all the notes I have. Be sure to tune in tomorrow night to hear special guests, the two and only Joseph Colbourne
and Ben Sisto
spinning some audio delights and giving you the low down on Color
which happens this Friday at the Milky Way
! As if that wasn't enough fun for the weekend Yo Majesty
are playing Middle East on Saturday night (this one's a must). CSS
also on the bill. In the meantime I'll see you tomorrow night at 10pm!

Wow this guys is jjjammin (video via N_M_R
). Count on MIT to bust out some conductive thread midi boat synthesis mobile beat making possibilities with the Music Jacket
. Happened to catch a great opening for the MIT visual arts progam
Saturday night. Then caught Flavorheard
at the enormous room (where were you?
). The night before it was Rebirth Brass Band who play louder then I think any other brass band ever. They even played Big Chief which is of course a Mofo favorite. Check the video
. Note: all of these experiences would have been greatly improved had I been wearing the musical jacket.
But before all the fun weekend stuff happened, a radio show happened. Check out the playlist here
. Still digging through the back log of vinyl. I'm kind of picking up interest in cassettes again too. Sucks I don't have a player at the crib. We heard some sick beat boxing and rap about sushi in the Language Lab Talent Show performance I found on audio cassette at a flea market. I'll rock it again this week and try to nab it out of the show to post here.
The National Free Culture Conference
is going down this Saturday at Harvard. The day looks to be jam packed with discussions, lectures, lunch, and it's all...free! Highlights in the schedule include an engagement with The Institute for Infinitely Small Things
, and DJ/Rupture
on "creating free culture." Following all that will be "Dance Conspiracy," the afterparty night time get down mobile DJed by yours truly. What's a Dance Conspiracy? Come find out 9:30 pm at the Harvard Square T stop, free (of course).
Tomorrow night I'll be sadly rocking solo. Special guest DJ Axel Foley
is unfortunately out sick. Here's to him getting well soon so he can get back behind the decks! If it's any consolation, Joseph Colbourn
will be spinning on next week's show (May 30th). Him and Ben Sisto
are starting a new night
at the Milky Way
. They'll hopefully both be stopping by to chat things up! More details in future bloggage, and on the air tomorrow night so tune in to know the deal! See you tomorrow at 10pm, wzbseeme,

Spanish Fly Orgies?
DJ Spanish Fly
at the top of last week's playlist
thanks to the mighty Cocaine Blunts
and this post
on the old school Memphis scene as it stands on the internet. Spanish Fly is still doing his thing on Hot 107.1
in Memphis and is playing Mississippi Friday so if you're out that ways, be sure to look him up.
In other local radio news on the dial, Wayne
reminds us it's orgy season over at WHRB
. They'll be airing the entire Blogariddims
series as hosted by Gregg Scrugs. This is a good reminder the revisit the series, and Ben's own writings at Beat Diaspora
. Other marathon sessions on deck include Detroit Techno and Art Blakey themes to name a few making this year's orgy season worth tuning in to for sure. Full schedule up at WHRB
In my own local radio news, DJ Axel Foley
joins the program next week to share some favorites from his stacks and give us a listen to some original projects he has going on. Be sure to check him out live on May 23rds Mofo Radio. As for tonight, I'll be rocking out solo with some backlogged vinyl to listen too. \Shall we do it together on the air? Show starts in a few hours so hit me up at 10!
EDITT!: Forgot to holler about the Rebirth Brass Band
show this Fri. at Harpers Ferry.
Got my ticket secured!!!

Check out last week's playlist.
You'll notice another throwback from Mofo favorite Egyptian Lover
) and if that wasn't enough Egyptian love, Mofo sources have revealed that fellow favorite of the program Ali Dee, aka one half of Prophets of Unity, is also, in fact, Egyptian. By sources I mean this review
of his full length which states he's at least part Egyptian. Connection made? The Tap Skinz 12" actually comes from the WRBB archives. Check the single, it's pretty absurd and about that dirty kind of loving:Ali Dee - Tap Skinz (Raw Mix)
We also heard from a bunch of new (to me) records I bought here,
and even more from here!
The listening pile has grown pretty large so more fresh wax to come.
Check out your Flosstradamus
and Axel Foley
semi-confirmed for the weeks upcoming on Mofo Radio but check me out solo tonight at 10! Til then,

Unfortunately in need of another two week wrap up. Mad busy week going into spring over here, but peep the playlist
from two weeks ago
and last week
.Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
is killing me right now with their single War
. Just got the 10 inch in the mail so we'll be hearing a lot more of that. Lines up kind of nicely with the Slavic Soul Party
stuff I've been playing too. I should do a big post on killer brass bands. Dirty Dozen, Hot 8, Rebirth, Young Bloods, expect this in the future.
We also heard some new Gino Soccio
tunes dug up in a post by 33/45
along with the youtube hookup
. My favorite is still the Dancer b-side, So Lonely.
Had a great time this weekend at the Punk Rock Flea Market
where I picked up a ton of new (to me) records. We'll be hearing selections from all of that tonight so be sure to tune in at 10!
