Space:1999 - The Greatest TV Show Theme Song Ever?

I dont remember watching Space:1999 during its first US run, but I would sometimes catch bits and pieces of it if I got home from Sunday school early enough.  You didn't see the toys very much.  I do remember a neighbor of mine had the big spaceship...but by the time I was aware of Space:1999, which was first broadcast in 1975, Star Wars was in full effect.

The soundtrack is so fucking funky, and that fuzzed-out space guitar...well, I wish instead of the orchestral interlude they'da just stuck another guitar line in there!  I gotta also say that the film editing perfectly matches the music, quick cuts and fast action during the psych-funk breaks, and grandiose orchestral (maneuvers in the dark) movements for the longer shots.

And just because I love the people who follow this shitty blog, here is an MP3 to jam to:   DOWNLOAD HERE!

KICKSTARTER ALERT: CBGB 1976-79 - Photos by Godlis

This set of my CBGB Punk photos was always conceived as a high quality photo book project.  Over the years, these photos have appeared in many exhibitions, documentaries & books. But there has been no single publication dedicated solely to my work from this time period. That's what I'm looking for your help with. To create and self publish a definitive Photography Book of these images.

Jabberwocky Music Festival

I picked up this Jabberwocky Festival / Event flyer at a music/video store in London earlier this month.  Although I've heard of a few of these bands - Neutral Milk Hotel, James Blake, Kurt Vile, Electric Wizard, Thee Oh Sees - the only one whose music I own is Thee Oh Sees.  Are any of the other bands worth checkin' out?

The Greatest African Movie Trailer. Ever?

Imagine that the Matrix bent Jackie Chan over a barrel and raped him, creating a bastard Mortal Kombat baby, which was then raped by a circa-1998 PC graphics card.  What do you get? get the trailer for B14, motherfucker!!

Record Messages: Don't Steal Chiquitia Montgomery's Frampton!

Maybe it's my tendency to occasionally generalize and racially stereotype folks, but I would never guess that someone named Chiquitia Montgomery would love her Peter Frampton Comes Alive so much that she'd sign the jacket cover, both inner sleeves, and every label with her gorgeous signature!  Maybe she was in a dorm-room nearly 40 years ago and feared people stealing her precious Frampton vinyl?

My brother bought this at Record Revolution in Cleveland at least 10 years ago, and my research found a Chiquitia Montgomery in North Carolina and Ohio.  I'm guessing she's the one in Ohio!

Bootleg Time: Heartbreakers at the Electric Circus (1976)

Debbie Juvenile & Johnny Thunders, December 1976 - by Leee Black Childers
If you are looking for some solace after the passing of Heartbreakers bassist Billy Rath, head on over to Noise Addiction II for a recording of the 'Breakers 9 December set at the Electric Circus in Manchester, UK.  A slightly noisy recording, but it's worth it.  Just think, only Walter Lure is still kicking around.

Oh, and be sure to leave something in the dude's comment section!
