Swanic Youth - Sonic Yoot / Swan Jovi
Swanic Youth was apparently a weird joke band that put out a 7” making fun of Sonic Youth, Swans and Bon Jovi. The first track, Swanic Yoot features a song about sonic youth that pairs calypso style stuff with noise rock guitar, and the second track “Swan Jovi”, actually kind of blends the slow thob of Swans with cock rock guitar…
Really interesting stuff, if silly as all shit.
<3 best show ever <3
UP THE WITCHES (A) AGAINST THE GRAND JURIES
imagine morrissey rolling around on the floor softly grunting as he tries desperately to lick his own asshole
Wait, you mean that isn’t what he’s doing on all of his albums?

This sounds like crap in comparison to hearing it live last night but I need to put this here so I don’t forget. Everyone was like, in a trance, it was like a seance…it was like tripping at times but all I had was medicine for a cold from hell but now I’m fine, after being pounded by sound & a shot of bitters. Sam & I also got to talk to Thor about the Circus Museum in Baraboo and tried convincing them to visit Ed Gein’s grave while they’re up here - later I was like dude, why didn’t I think of Swan’s Pumpkin Farm

Here’s a picture of Nicki Minaj I’m working on for someone, badly scanned in in many different parts. It’s too big for my scanner!
Now: to colour it in.
Wattstax the concert was an incredible outpouring of music, soul, and the Black experience. Staged at the Los Angeles Coliseum in the summer of 1972, it brought together over 100,000 people in a spirit of joy, price, and celebration.
Virtually the entire Stax Records roster, including Isaac Hayes, Rufus Thomas, The Staple Singers and many more, put their heart into performances that matched the magic of the occasion and forged a connection with the crowd which is still remembered and revered.
Wattstax the movie is more than just incredible musical performances. Through topical street interviews on subjects ranging from music and love to politics and the 1965 Watts Revolt, the film provides unexpectedly potent insight into life in Watts.
A young, relatively unknown Richard Pryor peppers the film with biting wit in a series of standup routines, binding the interviews and musical performances together into a powerful statement on life in Black America.

LIKE, WHO AM I SUPPOSED TO BE MAD AT? HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO ENGAGE?
Saw Thee Satisfaction the other night! !!!! !!! ! They were really shy and cute. And had one of the best shows I’ve seen. That’s my orange head & hand in a lot of those…
Edenabby, the opening band, was awesome too. I had no idea Abby was in a band at all, and there she was on stage, haha.
