The Bobs

Happy birthday to Jorge Santana (of Malo) (1954)!

Kevin Ayers

Yesterday, happy birthday to Kevin Ayers (of The Soft Machine) (1945).

I’ve been a fan of Kevin Ayers for something like 45 years! It’s so nice that he almost immediately made solo album, after leaving Soft Machine.

Anthony Moore

Happy birthday Anthony Moore (of Slapp Happy)!

 

On 8/14, Happy birthday to Reg Mombassa of Mental As Anything (1951), Peter Blegvad (1951). Yet again tomorrow, happy birthday to David Crosby (of Crosby, Stills & Nash fame) (1941).

 

I absolutely love the works of Anthony Moore! His experimental albums with Faust are wonderful examples of that style, and his “pop” albums are unclassifiable! What do you think of his latter day works?

France

Happy birthday to Texan guitarist / singer / songwriter Johnny “Guitar” Watson (1935), Dave Davies (of The Kinks, 1947) and singer Melanie (1947). This is also “the day the music died” – Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Richie Valens all go offshore, permanently.

France

My first exposure to France’s pop culture was in the 70’s – I got the debut LP by Michel Berger, the on one WEA with the heart on the cover. It was recorded at Chateau D’Herouville, like some really good Elton John LP’s had been. It’s pleasant enough pop music, and he passed away in the early 90’s of a heart attack.

 

Next blip on the musicology radar was when I got the debut LP by Lard Free, on Vamp. Lard Free = L’Art Frit = Free Art, but a slight perversion of that translation. It was like nothing else I had ever heard, and I had no trouble believing in it. In 1979, when I first went to Paris, I met Gilles Yepremian, Lard Free’s manager – he lived in Pigalle, then. I also met Roland Bocquet, the keyboard player who made a great not-on-CD album called “Paradia” on Cobra Records. Roland had been the keyboard player for a band called Catharsis.

 

There used to be a company up in Portland, OR called Intergalactic Trading Company. I dealt with a guy called Archie Patterson. He sold me all kinds of oddball French pop (and not-so-pop) musique.

 

In Paris, I particularly liked Crocodisc, on the rue des Ecoles, left bank. I also frequented FNAC, the large co-op record store. I succeeded in seeing Jacques Higelin; I did not succeed in seeing L’Affaire Louis’ Trio – their show had been cancelled and moved to a much later date (Pre-internet world! N’existe pas maintenant!).

 

Then there is the post-CD world of French pop musique, with all those wonderful clips on Boulevard Des Clips. Thrill to Les Rita Mitsouko (saw ‘em in L.A.!), Niagara, Charlelie Couture (saw ‘em in Malakoff, in Paris), Etienne Daho, Les Drellas, Jay Alanski (he wrote back to me!). And so many others! Peter & The Electro Kitsch keyboard player Igor Bolender was actually in my car, a few times. His wife Yael moved to Los Angeles, to be closer to the spirits of Jim Morrison and Mark Hollis, the Talk Talk singer. Here’s her store, where I DJ almost monthly: http://www.cuculapraline-frenchic.com/

 

And the food is really good in France! I love having dinner at La Coupole, in Montparnasse. When I die that’s where you should have my wake. And order something really good! And go downstairs and look at the decorative stuff by the restrooms. I think it used to be a dancehall, in the 30’s. Haven’t been there lately, so my info might be old hat now.

Music Week 1985

Happy birthday singer Freddy Cannon (1940, Lynn, MA). On 12/6 Happy birthday to Mike Smith of The Dave Clark Five (1943). On 12/5 Happy birthday to John Cale (1940). On 12/6 Happy birthday to Jonathan King (1944). On 12/7 Happy birthday to Tom Waits (1949).

On 12/7/1985 I was working for Tony Harrington @ USS&M in Studio City, CA. We’d get Music Week magazine from England, which is sort of like the British equivalent of Billboard magazine. Best thing about this is the release schedule!
