Re: Your favourite song at the moment..

http://youtu.be/59GGJShZQWM

Just recently learned about this guitarist Peter Green. He was something else before all the drugs and who knows what else drove him around the bend late in 1970, from which he never really returned I gather. In later years he did some impressive stuff, brilliant even - e.g. The Apostle - but you can easily tell that although the genius is still there, lurking in varying degrees somewhere beneath many of his later era songs, the razor fine edge has been dulled. He still performs today with his band The Peter Green Splinter Group.

The live version of The Green Manalishi above, which Green wrote, was performed with his seminal blues rock band Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac (Later morphing after his departure into the Fleetwood Mac of Nicks/Buckingham fame) in 1970 around the time he began having indescribably horrible recurrent nightmares, as he put it, wherein a dead dog came back to life and spoke to him of strange things, including the purported inherent evil of money. Not long afterward he visited a commune in Germany where, so the rumor goes, he took a bunch of bad acid that he never completely recovered from (it seems the episode triggered the onset of schizophrenia, eventually landing him in a mental hospital).

It is said PG was inspired to compose GM from a vision he had during one of his LSD trips. There has been much conjecture about the meaning of the song's lyrics. The real magic in this song, of course, is PG's guitar work. In fact, for my own part, I usually could do without lyrics and the human voice in music, as I find them so often to be needless constraints on the music's potential to evoke the imagination, but in the case of this song, espicially given the context, I find them fascinating:

Now, when the day goes to sleep and the full moon looks
The night is so black that the darkness cooks
Don't you come creepin' around - makin' me do things I don't want to

Can't believe that you need my love so bad
Come sneakin' around tryin' to drive me mad
Bustin' in on my dreams - making me see things I don't wanna see

Break:

'cause you're da green manalishi with the two prong crown
All my tryin' is up - all your bringin' is down
Just taking my love then slippin' away
Leavin' me here just tryin' to keep from following you

Between 1968 and 1970 Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac out sold The Rolling Stones and The Beatles combined (!). One can only wonder what PG might have done if he had not lost his grip and slipped over the precipice. If you like blues or blues rock music and you've not heard PG before you can listen to many of his most notorious works on YouTube. All his songs were not stellar, yet an amazing percentage of them were! A few of his solos strike me as downright creepy in the depth of their inspirational inventiveness; they keep twisting and turning in surpising, unexpected ways, always flowing seemlessly, with virtually no repetition... creepy! This dude was something else.

Who Makes the Nazis?

Interesting reading; just sayin'.
This is truly outrageous that they didn't mention this David Bunting character.
It is well known that he was the main force behind this whole pagan - satanic - nazi movement. Didn't he howl about antichrist, maldoror, pigface christus, hitler, lucifer and gods know what else? I think he 's probably a cannibal too - in the 80-ties he used to play on some kind of instrument made from human bones!!! Can you belive that?!?!
Just check out these photos:

This one is from the secret nazi rally in the late 80-ties. Note the Goering-like fatboy.



And here together with the current head of the Church of Satan and Little Rose Ridding Hood they molest a jewish child:



But wait a minute....... if Bunting is a nazi and Ligotti worked with him .... Holy crap!!!
Thomas Ligotti is a nazi too!!!

Re: Your favourite song at the moment..

haha great one. Nice sound quality too. Douglas sounds incredibly beautiful. It's a shame he sang only few songs with this creepy falsetto of his - I love Blood of winter and Rain of dispair.
By the way , did you happend to have the 21 anniversary edition of music, mar & mis. If so is it worth buying? What are those "Boyd's lovely christmas" and "happy anniversary" tracks?

The clip is taken from the four hour long Boyd Rice documentary ICONOCLAST directed by Larry Wessel, which is well worth seeing.
The 12" e.p., that they call the 21st An. edition of M,M&M, on the other hand, seems to be quite a bore. Those two extra tracks it contains were played by Douglas on Australian Three D Radio recently. I remember them as repetitive loop-based affairs. Nothing special. Surprised?

There should be a new NON album - 'Back to Mono' - out later this year. And a twelve-inch single of Boyd covering Bowie's 'Boys Keep Swinging' - Boyd Keeps Swinging. Should be good.

Dude don't look much like a rock star, yet he plays way better than many of them.

Re: Your favourite song at the moment..

I can't help but see this video along antinatalist lines. The children are gathering in condemnation of (and possible vengeance against) the adult couple of breeders.
