My day with Luke Perry

I wondered which person in Beverly Hills I wanted to be today, and I decided Luke Perry. And as we were speaking of Luke Perry (Ozan was here too, speaking), I remembered this obscure electronic act by the name Luke Perry. He describes his album Terminator Ecstacy () by way of a sexy catch-line: “Feel the ecstasy of terminating your identity. Treat yourself to burger king dinner on a stolen credit card.” No point saying how much I love this stuff, so let’s just get to it:

Luke Perry – skynet infiltration unit simulator

Luke Perry – identity scan

If “irresistible suburbanoid emergencies in cul de sac terraform” sounds like a delicious dish, you might want to go download his digitalized casette called Midnight Perry too.

Things doesn’t stop for Perry’s word lingo. On a blog called “There is no agency”, he provides us with an anti-capitalist analysis of tourism, spouting beautiful and concise sentences like this one: “Tourism supplies the traveller with a sacred image of the world. The figure of the traveller is defined by the mere accumulation of these images.” Reminds me of CrimethInc’s (anti-)traveller book Off the Map.

… and we’re not done! I thought you should have this one too:)

Man Ooman

January 24, 2010 § Leave a comment

Man Ooman (Man Woman) is a docuentary about dancehall dance culture seen through the gender relations of Jamaica (or the other way around: gender relations through dance culture). I really would like to see this documentary somewhere. Anyone got a clue? It seemed to go on a number of film festivals in 2008, and the idea was to distribute it for free online afterwards, but so far I have not found it. No torrents, no streams.

Rosforth has made a number of other interesting documentaries: e.g. “Good Copy Bad Copy” (on copying and copyright) and “Mr Catra the Faithful” (on the raw kind of baile funk played in the brazilian favelas)

Speedy psychedelic rock turns into strings in outer space.

Gucci Mane – Excuse Me (Memory Tapes Remix)

SATURDAY, PART 5: Bob to the bling. Bobbing your shoulders to the staccato drum loops, bobbing your neck and head to the bass, bobbing whatever maaaaaaan… It doesn’t matter so much where you are, you can bob at home as much as you can bob at a sweaty club. As long as you bob something.

I have no idea who Gucci Mane is. Actually, I have no interest in the Usheresque club-soul he seems to be doing. But that Memory Tapes / Weird Tapes / Memory Cassette-dude is cherning out some delicious remixes, making this stuff very edible for me. Thank you Memory Tapes / Weird Tapes / Memory Cassette.

Surviving Saturday, PART 4: Desire

SATURDAY, PART 4: Sunlights down.

Desire – Don’t Call

This track does many of the things I want from a typical saturday, at this time of the day: a soft milky introduction to a new state of being (the hypnotic drums sound like you they are transporting or moving you to a new place), the darkening and narrowing of our senses, not quite for the dancefloor, but for the kind of subtle dancing you do sitting (bobbing your body gently), and the mysterious atmosphere of the entire track anticipates something to come.

Worth mentioning: Desire have some good associations. They were discovered by Glass Candy. Toured with Chromatics. Signed on superb label Italians Do It Better.

Surviving Saturday, PART 3: Silence

SATURDAY, PART 3: Silence. Simply don’t play music or make sounds. Only the accidental musique concréte of you and your environment.

A sensory detox: Getting rid of your sensory and affective toxins, fleeing time-directed apathy and longing, struggling with auditory absence by corporeal abstinence, but preparing your awareness.

Surviving Saturday, PART 2: Indulge in longing

Laleh – Lär mig om [myspace]

SATURDAY, PART 2: Indulgence in longing. Repeating the mood and behavior of last part, now in a slighty more intense state of vulnerability. For the scandinavians: the lyrics are quite good in shaping the mood we took up in the last part, although now in a bit wider general sense.

Föddes på gator och torg
Noga med nycklar och jargong
Skogen från något nära håll
har jag väl sett,
nån enstaka gång.

Längtar jag längtar på tå
längtar till allting som är gott
havet den vill jag se nångång
någongång
från nära håll

Ibland så blundar man hårt
kanske man bett om något gott
jag vet då inte hur man ber
men var det en bön så
bad jag för oss

Längtar till allt.

Ta mig från allt hitte-på
längtar till allting som består
från trädena stammar upp till topp
lär mig om
lär mig om…

Ta mig från allt hitte-på
längtar till allting som består
från trädena stammar upp till topp
lär mig om
lär mig om…
