Stargazing To Electronica – The End Is Near

This video turns the notion of stargazing as a low-key pursuit on its ear. Planet X is a whole new ballgame with a heart-pounding dance track.

We get an industrial-grade groove out of the way early in Deep Threes Radio #3 and press on to the refined sounds of The Magnetic Fields. Here’s a clip from a 2004 show in merry old Cambridge.

Now that your mind is right, here’s a friendly reminder that the end is near. More later, four guys on horses are in my yard…

Emerging From The Creamy Center

Deep Threes Radio #3 emerges from the “creamy center” of the first hour with jazzy excursions with pianist Bill Evans and the Avery Sharpe Trio. Here’s video from last year of the trio performing John Coltrane’s homage to bassist Paul Chambers, “Mr. PC”.

Let’s step back in time to the 1978 Umbria Jazz Festival and checkout Bill Evans delivering one of his signature pieces, “Nardis”.

Bringing The Corrupt To Poetic Justice

On New Year’s Day in 1976, Ed Flanders recorded a spoken word piece (“poem”) that promoted government accountability (“investigating fat cats”) for the Totally Corrupt collection on the Giorno Poetry Systems label. Hearing it again 35 years later, we can see just how much the venerable institutions of our society have evolved (“not at all”). Listen for yourself on Deep Threes Radio #3.

Charles Bukowski also ran with the Giorno crowd. He provided the narration for this little L.A. art film, reading “Something For The Touts, The Nuns, The Grocery Clerks, And You”.

Peter Eigen, founder of the global watchdog group Transparency International, offered up his rough guide to rooting out corruption recently at a TEDTalks session. Is the fact that this vid was posted on April Fool’s Day part of bigger conspiracy?

Bob offers up his wisdom (“libertarian rhetoric”) on the subject for the One Minute Manager types in this clip from the venerable and popular Drinking with Bob series.

I Wanna Be Your Live Dog Trick

The new Legacy Edition of Raw Power marks The Stooges 2010 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Previously unreleased recordings of a 1973 Stooges show in Atlanta set the Legacy Edition apart from the 1997 reissue. We’ll hear one of those seminal punk jams on Deep Threes Radio #3.

Here’s video from the 1970 Cincinnati Pop Festival that captures front man Iggy Pop in all his frenetic glory performing “TV Eye”. The TV announcer in this clip is a total square.

Compare the shaky camera work from the audience of a 2007 show in Tel Aviv to the shots the pros got back in 1970. Here’s “I Wanna Be Your Dog”.

If you want to be someone’s dog, try borrowing a real pup for bait. Alexander Skarsgard (HBO’s True Blood, back 6/13 in US) posits that canines spell “babe magnet” in any language in the 2002 Swedish film Hundtricket (The Dog Trick). Here’s a heavy dose, with subtitles, of the romantic comedy missing from those It’s Me Or The Dog reruns.
