Salem's Pot - Pronounce This!

Monday, new week, time to scare up the "Monday Thrill", let me present the "Record Of The Week"

The horror-obsessed Swedish doom rockers SALEM'S POT have returned with a brand new album release "Pronounce This!", an album that receive the great trophy "Record Of The Week". SALEM'S POT walks the same path as GHOST, keep the mysterious and never identifies its band members individually, completely anonymous.

"Pronounce This!" is the second release by the mysterious quintet, an album that spawns between the classic 20's movie "Nosferatu" and the twisted "Kiss of the Damned". The music is very hallucinogenic and should be played a dark evening with a few candles and the full moon lightning up the room. You will instantly feel the horror around the corner, the sense of true evil lurking outside the window when the dark hazy tones flows out from the speakers like heavy thick smoke. It's very melodic, doomy and oozy. The Vocals partly reminds of Magnus Pelander (WITCHCRAFT) way of singing, sometimes like Pelle Almqvist (THE HIVES), well more like a mix between them and the music is something like IN SOLITUDE and HAWKWIND with spice of horror. It's a bit weird and wild, amazing in my ears, you can feel that it's bleed classic horror movies in the songwriting. It's boogie blues with free-form psychedelia that touches the classic NWOBHM, catchy melodies that hooks you. Key tracks are the almost 13 minutes long killer tune "Coal Mind", the album opener "Tranny Takes A Trip" a fuzzy and trippy piece and totally odd country track "So Gone, So Dead" and album closer "Desire". "Pronounce This!" is SALEM'S POT breakthrough, nuff said.

Pronounce This! is available on LP, CD and download, released on July 22nd via RidingEasy Records.

Sum: Over 50 minutes of heavy spooky rock n roll to steal your soul.

Today's tune "Tranny Takes A Trip", the album opener, enjoy!

Frank Zappa - Willie The Pimp

Sunday, time for a classic.

I'm a little pimp with my hair gassed back
Pair a khaki pants with my shoe shined black

Got a little lady ... walk the street
Tellin' all the boy that she cain't be beat

(That's the first part of the lyrics of todays tune.)

Today's tune "Willie the Pimp" is a blues rock song from Frank Zappa's 1969 album "Hot Rats". It features an idiosyncratic Captain Beefheart vocal and one of Zappa's classic guitar solos. It is 9 minutes and 16 seconds long on Hot Rats. It is the only track that is not instrumental on the album, though the track features a long guitar solo.

The song has also appeared on Zappa's Fillmore East - June 1971 and You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore, Vol. 4 albums.

The album title Hot Rats comes from a lyric of Willie the Pimp. The origin of the song was explained in a conversation Zappa recorded in 1969. This interview recording was later released as "The Story of Willie the Pimp" on the Zappa album Mystery Disc.

The song was ranked number 75 on the list of "The 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time" of Rolling Stone

Hot Rats largely consists of instrumental jazz-influenced compositions with extensive soloing, the music sounds very different from earlier Zappa albums, which featured satirical vocal performances with extensive use of musique concrète and editing. Multi-instrumentalist Ian Underwood is the only member of the Mothers to appear on the album and was the primary musical collaborator. Other featured musicians were Max Bennett and Shuggie Otis on bass, drummers John Guerin, Paul Humphrey and Ron Selico, and electric violinists Don "Sugarcane" Harris and Jean-Luc Ponty.

This was the first Frank Zappa album recorded on 16-track equipment and one of the first albums to use this technology. Machines with 16 individual tracks allow for much more flexibility in multi-tracking and overdubbing than the professional 4- and 8-track reel-to-reel tape recorders that were standard in 1969.

The album was dedicated to Zappa's newborn son, Dweezil Zappa. In February 2009, Dweezil's tribute band to his father's musical legacy, Zappa Plays Zappa, won a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for their rendition of "Peaches en Regalia."

Frank Zappa - guitar, octave bass, percussion
Ian Underwood - piano, organus maximus, clarinet, saxophone

BLOODY HAMMERS music straddles a wide range of genres including gothic rock, doom metal and psychedelic rock. The touring band features a revolving lineup with Manga and keyboardist Devallia being the only permanent live members. Devallia also contributes keyboard parts to recordings, is sometimes credited as a co-producer and acts as a songwriting adviser to Manga.

“This album is certainly the darkest album I've ever recorded”, states BLOODY HAMMERS mastermind Anders Manga, who stays on the dark path to the nether world and opens the seven gates with Lovely Sort Of Death. This BLOODY HAMMERS Dark Occult definitely turns out to be heavier and darker than anything the band has done before. The fourth album haunts the listeners with heavy fuzz toned guitar and an extreme catchy atmosphere. This is the perfect soundtrack for your next favorite horror movie or ouija session! Till death do us part!

Grace Jones - I've Seen That Face Before

Grace Jones is Grace Jones, and there´s honestly not even someone to compare her with. Grace Jones is the only Grace Jones ever and there will never be another Grace Jones. There´s no nightclub, no scene, where she´s not The Queen. Sex, music, clothes, borders – the weird rules that enslaves the rest of us means nothing to Grace Jones. She is her own set of rules. And above all, she´s Grace Jones.

Grace Jones was a central hub in the New York party scene that spun out of Studio 54 back in the early 80´s as well as an icon for the gay and queer-movement. Her breaktrough album, outside the world of disco, ”Nightclubbing” was voted album of the year by NME and contained the hit singles ”Demolition man”, ”Libertango” and ”Pull up to the bumper.” She combined further hit albums like ”Living my life” and "Slave to the rythm” with her work as an actress and model. Her fascinating persona and eclectic mix of electronica, funk, jazz, r´n´b and reggae has influenced generations of new artists. Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Lorde, Grimes and Santigold being among those naming her as a hero.

Little over a week ago did this Queen stand on the Flamingo stage at Way Out West, did she rule, oh yeah! With her band she just took over the raining forest of peoples in "Slottsskogen", every single foot, body was shaken to the rhythms of her classic disco music.

Here is a picture from Way Out West, sorry for the poor quality.

Today's tune "I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)" is a single by Jamaican singer Grace Jones, released in 1981.

The song juxtaposes "Libertango", an Argentine tango classic, written by bandoneonist Astor Piazzolla and first recorded by the composer himself in 1974, against a reggae arrangement and new lyrics penned by Jones herself and Barry Reynolds. Lyrically, it describes the darker side of Parisian nightlife. The song includes spoken parts in French: "Tu cherches quoi ? À rencontrer la mort ? Tu te prends pour qui ? Toi aussi tu détestes la vie..." which translates "What are you looking for? For death? Who do you think you are? You hate life, you too..." Jones also recorded a Spanish language version of the track entitled "Esta cara me es conocida", and an English version with the French passage recited in Portuguese.

Recorded in Nassau, Bahamas, with Sly and Robbie, Wally Badarou, Barry Reynolds, Mikey Chung and Uziah "Sticky" Thompson, aka the Compass Point Allstars under Chris Blackwell's and Alex Sadkin's direction, "I've Seen That Face Before" was released as the second single from Jones' album Nightclubbing, after "Demolition Man" made no chart impact.

The song was featured in key moments of the 1988 thriller movie Frantic, set in Paris, directed by Roman Polanski and starring Harrison Ford. The track however did not make it onto the film's accompanying soundtrack album. It also features in Raw Deal.

"I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)" has been described as "one of the highlights of Nightclubbing" and "one of the highlights of Jones' musical career".

Negură Bunget - Nametenie

In the middle of last week I did a quick trip to Romaina for some work at Bucovina Rock Castle, an old castle where the festival was placed in the wall grave next to ruins of the castle, odd, creepy and very black metal (:

During the evening a few Romainan bands played and one of them caught my attention. The Romania's NEGURĂ BUNGET. A band that fuse folk music from their home country with the grim musical stylings of black metal.

NEGURĂ BUNGET originally formed at the end of 1994 under the name WICCAN REDE, as a duo of NEGRU (Gabriel Mafa) on drums and HUPOGRAMMOS DISCIPLE (Edmond Karban) on guitars, vocals, and keyboards. Both musicians had previously been members of MAKROTHUMIA. WICCAN REDE released one demo, 1995's From Transilvanian Forests, before changing their name to NEGURĂ BUNGET. In a 2004 interview, Negru explained the symbolism of the name:

"NEGURĂ BUNGET is a black fog coming from a deep dark dense forest. The name tries to picture somehow the kind of atmosphere, both musical and spiritual we'd want to create through our music. It has also an esoteric nature, standing for the inexpressible parts of our ideology. The two words are also from the Tracic substrate of the Romanian language (the oldest one, containing about 90 words) as the interest for our local history and spirituality is something of crucial importance and meaning for us as a band".

Today's tune "Nametenie" is taken from the sixth studio album Tău, released on February 27, 2015, by Lupus Lounge, a sublabel of Prophecy Productions.

When it was first announced in 2013, the album was listed as the first part of a planned "Transilvanian Trilogy".
