Turn On Your Lamplight Pt 4

The Turn On Your Lamplight box set keeps growing! If you're familiar with parts 1, 2, and 3, you'll be pleased to know that this one digs up the roughest, ugliest, grittiest 60s Garage Punk yet. And there's a little bit of surf thrown in for good measure (bird is the word).

To get a taste of the dirt I'm talking about, have a listen to Girl by The Keggs. Was this all in one take? Can these guys even play their instruments? This is the rough stuff that made the 60s a special time — the birth of punk rock? Quite possibly. Or how about this one, the wild, chopped up Things Gotta To Change by Barry Lee. First of all, they couldn't even get the title right when printing the record label. Next, the band can't even keep time on the backup vocals! The result is a flailing, beautiful cacophony of raw energy. If the instruments were tighter and the recording polished up then this would sound like a flat, boring pop tune at best.

I wanted to make a special shout out to Dr. Mindburger, a record dealer in Chicago who I got a couple of these 45s from. Take notice of this special lost garage tune by The Blackstones, Chicago City. This was pressed up by the doctor himself after a cohort stumbled upon the acetate in a garage sale. What a savage cut! I also have a psychedelic mix in the works with some proper Mindburger tunes on it so check back often.

This stuff really gets my blood pumping.

yours, DJ Bylamplight.

Call For Projects To All Artists!

Hello all you bloggers.. time to get known and maybe get your yourself to Brussels, Belgium..

SMart asbl is a socio-professional organisation supporting artists on a logistic, administrative and legal level.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary SMart is organizing the SMartival, a festival for its 20000 members and for the general audience. The SMartival takes place from 22/11/2008 until 29/11/2008, at the Pathé Palace in Brussels.

Foton is responsible for the conceptualization and the artistic program of the SMartival. Within this framework we launch a call for projects, based on the following conditions and proposals:

- the SMartival is a MULTI- and INTERDISCIPLINARY event: music, film, dance, theater, circus, installations, fine arts ... all artistic disciplines as well as their hybrid forms are welcome.
- first of all the SMartival wants to be a place and a moment in time where SUPPORT, ENCOUNTERS and EXCHANGE between artists, the general audience and the SMart-crew prevail: the event is open to all artistic proposals containing these elements of INTERACTIVITY, no matter what their format might be (performances, installations, workshops, ...)

- whether you are an artist or not, whether you are well-known or not, send us your own artistic creation, to be sold during our anonymous auction ... the day of the auction you might return home with a real Tuymans without knowing it

Send your project proposals for the artistic program to:
hans@foton.be / SMart asbl - c/o Hans De Man - Emile Féronstraat 70 - 1060 Brussels - Belgium

Send a short description and a couple of pictures of your artistic creation for the auction to: hans@foton.be
We will get in touch with you afterwards to discuss the sales conditions.
