We didn't write anything down because it was on unusually chaotic evening just one week after our smooth Monday debut. Got to BASE at 5 to 8. Talked to An and Gemma (Jemma?) who were on before us about their music-related jobs etc. Nick was meant to be first today, but he didn't show. Unusual. So I went on instead. Said bye to An and Gemma. Played some heavy Tubby dubs on 7" version and then some 50s R&B including Dorothy Ellis's Drill Daddy Drill, Coldcut with Roots Manuva on a Tru Skool remix. Manaia Toa (AKA Splash), visiting AKL from Welli, appeared a few minutes later with his friend Nikki 'Niche'. Don't ask me about DJ names. I'm glad I don't have one. Splash and Nikki had been catching up that afternoon with some libations so were in rambunctious mood, she in particular taking the piss out of my 'old school' musical choices and surprised to see me play 7" inches. Everything from the 20th century is now deemed 'old skool', one of the most imprecise periodizations. Nick called to let us know that his car battery was dead, so Splash picked him up. Once Nick arrived he took to the decks. Splash told me animatedly what he wrote about in his postmodern art essay at Massey. Most of the art students sounded like shoegazers. Nikki gave me an account of Congo Natty style Junglist DJs in Auckland circa 1993-96. I enjoyed hearing about the intensity of this micro scene in AKL and Christchurch. There's an oral history of DJ culture to be written and BASE is one epicentre. Manaia Toa is a bit of a trickster when it comes to other people's shows so he had some fun pitchshifting and fingering our vinyl on the decks. Yes, the bullhorn and screaming woman sound bites were in full effect. I went with the flow. Nick was assured with the musical choices, but must have been discombobulated because he didn't write anything down. It's usually me who has to reconstruct my 30 minute sets afterwards. Splash took Nikki home about 9:15. In my second set, I did play some langorous Shackleton remixes and my favourite record of the moment which is Theo Parrish's When I'm Gone, one side of a 12" in Rick Wilhite's series. Spoken word about Africa and Black America, slavery, the blues, samples Bobby Bland I think, and then goes into this slowly evolving polyphony. About four minutes in, it kicks into the sub bass which is usually distorted on Theo's records on his own Sound Signature label. However, the bass was loud and clear and true on this Dutch pressing. Thank you Cian at Conch Records of Ponsonby Road for putting me on to this disc. I'd been a bit down lately about missing out on that limited Sun Ra triple 7" set when it came out in May. I finished about 9.30 and almost exactly the same time, got a text to the studio from Shuchi who said she wasn't feeling well and wanted to go to the A & E. So I packed up my stuff and went home to pick her up. A & E units in central/western Auckland have winter hours now, shutting shop by 8 pm; we had two fruitless trips to St Lukes and Ponsonby. Went home rather than Auckland hospital to see if Shuchi's swollen throat might be relieved without having to sit and wait for hours and then spend another few hours of blood tests and measurements and maybe a night in the institution. Hot water with lime, some light medication and a warm bed assuaged the situation. Go placidly amidst the noise and haste...

Our first show in the new studio in premises at 7A Rose Street. Jazz was doing the undercoat for the new sign. Dylan C did a very nice Ninjatune set for two hours just before us. Much cheer despite the crappy grey wet day out in Auckland. Studio lighting was a kind of blue.

Nabeel:
 
King Midas Sound - I Dub

{vinyl does beat the 320 mp3. But 12"s are so expensive in NZ}

Cotti - Warrior Charge

{nothing to do with Aswad. Think the Dub might be better}

Joker & Ginz - ReUp

{shout out to Base's re-up and all the hard work done for that}

Falty DL - Human Shadow (Boxcutter Remix)

{I do love a bit of glitch. Female wisp samples are in these days}

Scuba - Bleach

{played that for Michael Jackson. Anything Scuba does these days is good. This him going Pole-r but halfway to Jamie Vexd's recent stuff}

Nosaj Thing - IOIO

{Spacey synths and elephantine grooves are big these days. Not P-, not G-, but PG-Funk}
 
Nick:

J-Live - One to 31
Villa Diamante - Emisor vs Dead Prez
Quasimoto - Tomorrow Never Knows
Villa Diamante - Peter Rap vs Ludacris
Anti-Pop Consortium - Capricorn One
Elucid - My Mayor is a Billionaire
Villa Diamante - Scuba vs Alexis & Fido

Nabeel:

The Seeds - 900 Million People Daily (All Making Love)

{RIP Sky Saxon. Really hit California on the head more than Jim Morrison. Sunshine space and claustrophobia. Maybe I'll play 'No Escape' next week}

I interviewed Scalper who has a new album Flesh and Bones out soon. Thanks to Dylan for coming in some of the way through and raising the level on Scalper's mic. We played and talked about 3 tracks from the album:

Scalper - Black Glory
Scalper - Threepointonefour
Scalper -
Abacus

Strong character this Scalper, ready to strike at any time. What kind of dark knight of templar is he? What alchemy does he perform? He does have some mathematical preoccupations. In a long line there: Sun Ra, George Clinton, Eric B & Rakim, Rammellzee et cetera. Scalper is performing on King Kapisi's upcoming NZ tour. Special guests also include Maitreya and Tha Feelstyle. Details here

Izenzaren - Natri

{Legends of Amazigh (Berber) music. I found this here}

Shackleton - El Din 2

{Shackleton of Arabia, part 7. What doth tempte him to turn Turke?}

Earl Zero/King Tubby - Shackles and Chains Version


{Tubby gets them chains a rattlin'. 'They must be broken'}


Nick:

Villa Diamante - Juana Molina vs Benga
Tourettes - Good Guys Write Bad Music
Filastine - Marxa
Major Lazer - Hold the Line (Antennae Remix)
The Bug - Skeng (Kode 9 Remix)
DJ /rupture - In Front of You

Manaia Toa brought his bag of Kode9 records for signing at the gig tonight. He confessed to being a nerd without being asked.

Nick was in Welli with Erin so I was personning The Basement again. Thought Fanon Che Wilkins was coming in but he may have had the jet lag or been delayed. Anyhow,  in anticipation of his appearance I had more classics than usual with a big emphasis on late 80s and early 90s hip hop. Some dubwise and dubstepping tracks. The odd R & B thing.  Disco and even house. The time went very quickly. Thanks to Cian and Saghir for texting in. Manaia Toa followed me with that Coca Cola red wine and ice cubes concoction. Again, have forgotten the order of my tunes but a lot of the following went down:

Disrupt - Blast You To Bits
El Hijo De La Cumbia - Cumbia de Los Barrios
Rebel MC - Rich A Getting Richer feat. Little T
Kode9 & SpaceApe - Sine
Applebim - Vansan

Nick was away this weekend so just me in the studio on my todd. Didn't write or type anything so this playlist is certainly off kilter but these tunes were all there. So much fun. Complete immersion. I was totally lost in the sounds, no prep and completely improvisatory, with messy blends and some thematic links. I'm sure it was disquieting listening for the on-point beatmasters on Base, but let's be open about various DJ styles/messthetics. Though in no way trying to do the same thing, I was inspired this week by Dr Delay's Rajaz Meter mix of Turkish and Middle Eastern sounds (Cian kindly gave me a copy) and the deepness of Theo Parrish's Sound Structures Volume 1 CD which I just got in the post. Stunning black music, black to the future. A profoundly political and funkalicious work. So lots of Theo and those sorts of headspaces and grooves. Time, time, time, time, as John Holt sings. Next week Fanon Che Wilkins will be on the show to talk about Hurricane Katrina and hip hop and other stuff. He teaches African-American history in Japan and just interviewed Pete Rock. So I'm looking forward to that. Keeping it (sur)real....

Nabeel:

I was still getting used to Scratch Live/Serato and so forgot to write my tracks down in order, but I recall playing these tunes on the show. I've missed out about three mp3s that sounded super yukky, so apologies to listeners. I dig me some distortion sometimes but it's got to be the right kind of distortion:

DAHLAK--Welcome To My Cypher
RAGGA TWINS--Illegal Gunshot
WILEY--Rock And Roll
COUNT BASS D--95% Of The Music Industry
CHICO HAMILTON--For The Mods Only
EDU LOBO--Memorias
CARIBOU--Melody Day

THE BROTHERS HAWK--Tweedle-Dee Tweedle-Dum
SVEN LIBAEK--Dark World
SELDA--Meydan Sizindir
J DILLA--Shouts (Instrumental)
CLIFFORD BROWN & MAX ROACH--Max's Variations

Then ADDISON came in and did a short 20-minute set from the cuts he hopes to release as an album. This was the last show he did here. He's on his way to Londinium via France to try and cut it with the boys and girls in the big smoke.

He didnae wanna chat today.  A bit clunky during the second half of this set coz I was trying to get started on Serrato and the mac was playing up. Jerky transitions, I'm afraid.

Nabeel says: I played only seven inch singles this week as a change from heavily MP3 influenced selections in recent times. Nice to feel that disc in the hand, brush the dust away and spin those B-sides and versions that often get forgotten. And I think the design of the plastic seven inch single adaptor is one of the most beautiful things in this world.

Nabeel says: This week on The Basement Nick bigged up the upcoming Wednesday show of Shadow, His Mos Defness, Latyrycal flow and televisually crunked MCs and beats. Unfortunately my partner is unwell so I cannot attend the St. James function (that's the theatre not the infirmary). My playlist included a minor Syd Barrett tribute and some feelings on the Middle East crisis, UK Islamophobia and Islamophilia, Zidane's headbutt fallout, and the Conservative party leader in the UK saying that Hoodies weren't all bad and that we needed to understand them. They were real people like everyone else behind those hoods, not just hip hop thuglifers. Aah, how sensitive. Anyhow, you can read more on some of these topics at my blog Topical Ointment. Most importantly, my track selection was made up of tunes that banged and hummed as well as being topical. The Basement also had a guest Sunil Narshai, writer of The Customer Is Always Trite, a short film that is part of the Homegrown: Works on Video programme in the International Film Festival. He seemed a radio natural, took to the Mic like a Brooklyn bomber. Nick and I also chatted about some of the films we'd seen already. More of that next Saturday. Keep it locked on 107.3 Base FM.

Not blogged for ages, so this is just a brief interruption. I’ve been travelling a fair bit recently (Sydney and Wellington)—Sydney to see a friend for a few days and Wellington for a pop music conference. More on both in tomorrow’s show and subsequent blog entries. Will review Punk: Attitude tomorrow. I’ve also got a friend Saghir who’s visiting from San Diego, California. And today I’m trying to finish a long overdue draft of a 6500 word chapter on the Desi-hip hop crossover rip off sampling thang.

As mentioned on a past entry I was in Wellington a little while back during the Punk Fest. I noted that the event seemed to be more about death metal than my conception of punk with an old school image of Minor Threat and the Dead Kennedy's. Well I was too young, geographically displaced, and in the wrong musical circles to be aware of any of those bands while they were active. Thankfully apart from the recorded material there has been plenty of good documentation of the happenings of the times. I mention this mostly because I finally had a chance to see the Decline of Western Civilization, which is off course not new, but unfortunately rather rare. Seeing bands like Black Flag and the Germs performing and talking about life is, well, pretty cool, given their on going legacy. So I then got interested in what other material was out there. Just a small search uncovered Punk Attitude (Nabeel already mentioned this and I think this is widely available), a movie about the Germs called What We Do is Secret, and We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen. Incidentally Mike Watt is the fill in for the Stooges when they play at the Big Day Out. Regular concert goers might remember that Watt played at a pervious Big Day Out where he was a ringer with Porno for Pyros. Good times.

 

The news this week is as disturbing as ever. In the politics versus the fourth estate battle there was the idiotic claims by Winston Peters that NZ Herald was committing treason. More seriously was the revelation of a secret memo where George Bush wanted to bomb Arabic television station Al Jazeera. After indicating that such a memo exists, the UK's Daily Mirror was threatened with legal action by the UK government should they go onto publish its contents. Although it is hardly surprising that Blair's people would take this position, I don't think I am alone in wanting to know if the "Leader of the Free World" really contemplated something so vile. Sadly such behaviour, however horrifying, is not surprising. After all, the Bush administration is trying to legalise torture and claim that white phosphorus is not a chemical weapon. What's more, it also held one of its own citizen's for over three years (much of it spent in solitary confinement) before charging formally him. I wonder if there is a public breaking point, when it will finally be all too much. One can hope.

 

Anyway onto brighter things, as I mentioned a little while back, the Grey Lynn Festival is this weekend. Hopefully the weather report will be wrong for that one. Indoors there is the Quantic Soul Orchestra and Alice Russell on Friday, then a special Turnaround on Saturday. All things being equal I should actually make it out of the house. Shout out to Nabeel who is probably soaking up the nightlife of Sydney. Also good luck to the wonderful Sophie who is unfortunately the latest casualty at Base. She has been super important to the station and really helpful for our show.

 

Peace y'all

Last Sunday I got a call from my bank saying that they had spotted some suspicious activity on my credit card. Some one had used my number someone in mid-Western USA for what I think was some hardware store purchase, and luckily the security team knew right away that this was outside my usual spending patterns. So steps were taken and I got a new card, luring me into a false sense of security. False because, today I was at the supermarket making a purchase only to have my eftpos transaction declined. Thinking that this must be a mistake, I went over to an ATM to see what the numbers held. Turns out, I well into overdraft, a figure that was totally out of sync with the big calculator in my head. So as my sweat glands went into overdrive I made my way to check my online statement to see how this could have possibly happened. The culprit was rather large withdrawal made in Notting Hill, UK, somewhere I have never been. Immediately I call the bank who are helpful but also puzzled. For someone to have access to my normal accounts (not my credit card) they need a physical card to get a withdrawal. The woman I spoke to said that this is pretty rare but has happened once before. Now I have the banks fraud team working on my case. So if you are that person in Notting Hill, we will have your number soon, and you shall be cast into the pit of financial hell. Where this fits into the 9 circles of Hades I cannot accurately say.

 

Anyway I noticed that here is a call for military help in Afghanistan. It strikes me as odd that this is partly the consequence of American's pulling their troops out to strengthen their presence in Iraq. It is very clear that the Taliban in Afghanistan harboured and was sympathetic to groups like Al Qaeda. It is also very clear that prior to the US invasion Iraq did not. Post-invasion, surprisingly, Afghanistan hasn't stabilised into one of the shining lights of democracy in the area. Instead its drug trade has increased, war lords have once again become common, and old forces like the Taliban have been popping up to make guest appearances. Yet this doesn't seem to trouble the American's who instead still insist on staying on course on Iraq and not bowing down to the forces of evil. The great John Cusack has some words on the state of his nation.

 

In other news, I was very happy to attend the Great Blend, put on by the fine folks at Public Address. It had a great panel discussion about the future of TV with the advent of recordable digital hard drives and internet technology. What this means for NZ, and TVNZ in particular is quite uncertain. It is worrying to see their ongoing developments, particularly the news that shows like Frontseat may face an uncertain future. The time might come for some more intervention. Please, no more reality TV. It is a dying trend anyway.

 

Also at the Great Blend were performances by Ladi6 and Pitch Black. Pitch Black had bought along their new remix CD, Halfway: Between Ape & Angel. I got a copy, as I like to think that the money would go directly to them as opposed to being filtered down through retail. Interesting to see that it is still illegal for me to now put that CD onto my iPod. I am not sure what the government thinks people do with digital music players. Hope the law gets changed before someone tries to test it on some poor soul.

 

peace y'all.

So I started writing this entry on 7/11. Which reminds me of Ali G’s gag on US TV that ‘thing have been difficult for Americans since the tragic events of 7/11’. For those of you haven’t been stateside 711 is a chain of convenience stores. Some people without a sense of humour were upset.

 

I missed The Basement on Saturday because I had to pick up my brother from the airport. His earlier flight from Sydney was cancelled. So Nick kindly filled in for me on the show. This was the first visit to these shores from a Zuberi. My bro Sameer is a paediatric neurologist with specializations in narcolepsy and epilepsy. He flew down to Sydney from his home in Glasgow, Scotland for a conference on epilepsy, and sneaked in a couple of days in Auckland. We managed to cover a lot in 45 hours: up north to Tawharanui, Warkworth, the eastern bays, atop Mt Eden and around the eateries of Kingsland, and managed to show him one of my favourite movies Office Space too. Have just dropped him off for his flight to Sydney.

 

A visit from someone provides a really welcome interruption in the routine of your everyday life.

 

I have prepped my belated Rosa Parks tribute for the show. Still working through the Loop Select 007 CD, booklet and DVD.

 

Yay, let’s here it for the ‘scum’ as that French Minister of the Interior Nicolas Sarkozy described them. Babylon’s burning! France believes it is the font of western civilization. It thinks it has the monopoly on universal values of liberty, fraternity and equality. Bollox. Only if you’re white. For a secular society, it deals more easily with Catholics and Protestants than Muslims and Jews. Many French collaborated with the Nazis under the Vichy regime. Check out Marcel Ophuls’ documentary The Sorrow and the Pity and for the postwar hypocrisy about France’s racist and fascist legacy, see Jacques Audiard’s film  A Self-Made Hero. Audiard also directed the excellent Read My Lips, which I reviewed on the show a weeks ago.  The film stars Matthieu Kassovitz who plays a guy who pretends that he’s a hero of the French resistance even though he comes from a family of Nazi collaborators. A great satire on how the Vichy sentiments were re-integrated into France after the war. Kassovitz directed the essential La Haine which follows three young French men of Algerian, Jewish and West African descent in the day after a riot in one of the suburbs or banlieus of Paris. Sound familiar? It was made in 1995. Anyhow, may the hordes from Africa and the Middle East swamp the white old guard of a nation that is economically in the doldrums.

 

More later,

The headline news continues to baffling thing. It was easy enough to point out that there was a huge imbalance in the coverage between the hurricanes battering South Eastern America and the devastating earthquake that hit Pakistan. But now it seems that although Paris has been burning for nearly two weeks the mass media (at least down here) doesn't figure this as being hugely important. It took nearly two weeks before the unfolding events made the front page of the world section in the NZ Herald. In once case the riots were trumped by unusual tornado's in America's mid-West. And as far as any analysis goes, well locally thank god for Russell Brown. I know that the French have been the butt of many a joke, but isn't this just taking the whole stupid American thing a bit far? It is not like we are trying to suck up to the Bush administration like our neighbours across the sea.

 

Meanwhile it has been fun to see a nice round of poltiical defeats. While it may seem petty to take pleasure in the failings of others, these clowns deserve a lot worse. Here is hoping that voting amnesia does not kick in. And bring on more indictments! (fingers crossed, fingers crossed, fingers crossed…)

 

Last Saturday there was a book fair up at ASB Stadium, and as it started at midday I got there just as it opened. Although I do read quite a bit, I am not a collector of any sort books or publications (my obsessions lie elsewhere). I haven't been to that many book fairs, and certainly none as crazy as that. People were running around with boxes grabbing stuff getting somewhat agitated. It made casual browsing quite difficult. The fair was actually running for 24 hours straight, but I declined to see how bumping it was at 3am.

 

Strangely enough though I met a woman called Brenda who felt that she had to say hello to me on account of seeing me at both the Real Groovy in Auckland and Wellington. It is a little strange to have someone notice you in three different spots, particularly as I usually have my head down checking out the wares, but she seemed pretty cool. I on the other hand suddenly felt self-conscious and struggled to say anything interesting.

 

Although I know Nabeel reviewed Sideways awhile back I don't think we covered American Splendor. I mention this both because of my aforementioned awkwardness, and having the occasion to once again see the film. This has finally promoted me to go and check out the wonderful comic's that Harvey Pekar has put out. His comments on music collecting were pretty funny, but scary for someone as obsessive as myself.

 

On the horizon the onset of summer lots of events have started to bubble up. There is the Quantic Soul Orchestra with Alice Russell on the 25th of October in Auckland and the 26th in Wellington. The 26th is also the day for the Grey Lynn Park Festival and the Turnaround. Blackalicious are returning on December the 15th for a gig at Studio in Auckland. Then the Big Day Out looks quite promising (do I dare go yet again?). Then there is the return of both Soundsplash and Splore. Splore as scored Talib Kweli, something that I am sure Dylan C from the Headspace was trying to tell me last night. However with my bad hearing I told him I didn't know who that is, making me sound probably like a bit of a dick. Will try and correct myself to Dylan tomorrow. Otherwise the universe might end as I know it.

 

Finally, rest in peace Rod Donald. New Zealand politics will sorely miss you.

 

Peace y'all

I finished reading Sarah Vowell's Assassination Vacation (I do have a bit too much spare time right now). Great book, and interesting comments on the current state of American political affairs. Of particular note is her material on the McKinley administration. If you don't know a lot about American history, it used to harbour a strong sense of isolationism, something to look back on fondly. But at the end of the 19th century its ambition and greed finally sprang forth, with the Spanish-American war. White gold (sugar) was the prize, hazy reasons for sending a nation to war were created, and shady justifications were made. Cuba and the Philippines would be liberated, freed from their European colonial shackles. As to what actually happened, history speaks for itself quite clearly on this matter. I am still unsure as to whether the subsequent administrations have just been too stupid to learn from the past, or if they think that no one is really paying attention.

 

One thing made very clear to me by the book is the hope that no one will able to shoot George Jr. This is not only a reflection of my sincere abhorrence to violence, but also the horrible possibility that such a twist of fate might try and make a martyr out of a clown. If there is any sense of real justice, this administration will continue on its self destructive path before a largely delighted world public. More indictments please.

 

On another troubling note, is anyone ready for the Bird Flu yet? Unsurprisingly certain people have already realised that with fear comes money making opportunities. I know practically nothing about how a virus evolves, so am in the wait and see camp. The total lack of poultry in my diet continues keep make me happy as things unfold. Am actually surprised that people are not getting more wary of places like KFC, but then again it sort of surprises me that anyone would go there for any reason at all. Would also love for the intelligent design camp to try and weigh in on this one, is this disease changing on its own accord, or is their a larger guiding hand?

 

Tomorrow, apart from being time for the weekly musical excellence of the Basement, is of course Guy Fawkes. Once again press is given to those who want to ban fireworks. In some sort of weird political twist it seems to be Labour defending the publics right to illuminate and make small explosions, while National for a ban (perhaps they are too politically correct).  It is always sad to see what a few idiots do when they get the opportunity to play with fire, not just because of the physical damage they cause, but because it is then thought that an all out ban should be enacted. Back in the day, my fireworks experiences were relatively extreme. I grew up in a place where they were completely banned, leading to sales under the counter and out of the backs of cars. It also meant that the  goods were usually very powerful. Powerful, like blowing off pieces of solid brick wall. Accidents were abound, and going to hospital was never pretty. I however received no injuries, and look back upon this time with fondness. So about all I can suggest is that, kids, be safe and lets all play nice.

 

Peace y'all

I sit here on a Friday night, partly anticipating the (hopefully) forthcoming indictments in Washington, and otherwise wondering why I have not got any thing more important to do. For example, I could be getting all excited about going to something like the wonderful Turnaround with its grand return to Rising Sun, but I am feeling old. Perhaps it is because a lot of my friends are all grown up with more domestic things to worry about than dancing till the break of dawn. Then again it could just be me. Maybe if I stop worrying the grey hairs will go away.

 

As noted somewhere in the archives I spent last weekend in Wellington. I now have the pleasure of sleeping in both Brooklyn Welli and Brooklyn NY. I won't express a preference, but can safely say there was no risk of a momentary geographic confusion. The only big event I can report on from the weekend was a Punk Fest. Although I do own some punk, it is rather old school (Minor Threat and Dead Kennedys). I probably experienced a generation gap, because the screaming in a style that I would normally equate with Death Metal did not do very much for me. Nor did the legions of kids in the black, the volumes of cheap alcohol, the drunk guys who tried to spark a conversation with me, and the guy who felt he had to kiss me. There was also an idiotic instance of someone being bottled. Luckily she is fine, and having spoken to her today she is considering taking out a restraining order, rather than adopting for the code of the street. The one interesting musical thing at the fest was the wonderful Coco Solid. Although they were not wearing black, screaming, or playing an instruments really fast (or at all), they had ended up on the bill and went down rather well. Big ups.

 

I continued to look for people who are actually happy with our government, and no one really wants to put their hand up. But just when the new/old line up should be enduring more critical drilling Don Brash goes and makes Wayne Mapp the spokesperson for Political Correctness Eradication. I haven't really got anything fresh to add to the other volumes of scorn that this move has created. I only wish our politicians did not insist on putting New Zealand on the world map by continuing making us look ridiculous. That should be Rachel Hunters job.

 

Returning to my earlier anticipation, it is much nicer to look across the Pacific. Although in the grand scheme of things outing an undercover CIA agent may not seem like a big deal, if it is enough to remove Karl Rove and with a bit of extra luck Dick Cheney (and dare I hope for an even further step) then I shall be smiling. Some people do wonder what will George do without his brain, one answer could be to seriously hire Andy Dick.

 

On another nice note from the States, it seems that the Boondocks has been made into an animated cartoon. If you haven't seen the Bookdocks, it is very good, and that is probably an understatement. No other syndicated comic (or other any type of commentary) has dared to take on the Bush administration so fiercely or make as many astute social observations. Supposedly the first episode was going to feature Rosa Parks attacking R Kelly (a bed wetter, who knew it?) but out of appropriate sympathy this was cut out. Don’t expect many more concessions. It is going to be on Adult Swim over there, which probably means that we shall have to wait for a DVD. Maybe a petition could be started for a full service channel, after all Danger Doom made an album about it.

 

On a final (musical) note (that is what this is all about n'est pas?) I have to say Thurston Moore's book Mix Tape : The Art of Cassette Culture looks particularly cool (as mentioned in Nabeel’s entry). As one who has been making takes and then mix CD's for awhile I do often wonder if it is nearly a dead art. While pondering it all, I came across an episode of American Life where Sarah Vowell tries to hire herself out as a mix tape producer. This is not to be confused with the hip-hop notion of a mix tape (code of the streets y'all) but merely one where selections are put together to make (special) friends. If you don't know who Vowell is, she did the voice of Violet in the Incredibles, and more importantly wrote a book called Assassination Vacation, which outlines American Presidents (mostly Republicans strangely enough) who met untimely ends. Nuff said.

 

Peace y'all

Kinda strange being in the studio on my own this week. This was the first time I was flying solo on The Basement. I had a lot of fun though. Really got into the headspace after Dylan C.  The new Boards of Canada is out to mixed reviews. That was an event of sorts, so I played a track from that. And since the Turnaround is back this Friday with Cian returning from his overseas sojourn, I spun some tunes recommended by him, Submariner, Manuel, and Finn from the monthly newsletter. The Damian Marley album sounds really excellent, at least what I’ve heard so far. His vocal on Road to Zion has been processed to sound really thin and is disturbingly close to his daddy’s voice. Anyway, I began the show with that murky sound like you’re listening to a really fuzzy AM station. That nostalgic analogue aesthetic seems to be part of electronic music and other genres right now and frankly I’m a sucker for it. I like the way sound is degraded by various technologies. Thurston Moore has written about the way old cassette tapes sound warm with their hiss in comparison with the digital precision of CD recordings. Listen to Ariel Pink who sounds like he’s singing through a vacuum cleaner. Maybe we should call the whole development something like Technostalgica.

 

Forgot to play a track in memory of RL Burnside so will definitely remember to do it this week.

 

You’ve probably heard that the great Rosa Parks died this week. Will play something for her, though I might avoid the obvious selections.

 

Have also been getting back into punk so gave some of that genre an outing on the show. I picked up a bargain copy of England’s Dreaming, an international collection of punk and ‘new wave’ classics and obscurities from 1977-79 selected by Jon Savage, author of the definitive book of the same name. It’s on the excellent German label Trikont. I was amazed at how good the obscure stuff sounded and how early punk started opening up its sound to take in other musical developments—reggae, dub, electronic sounds, cut-up, funk and so on. Will explore more of this terrain in future weeks, including a review of recently released DVD Punk Attitude, directed by Don Letts, once I get hold of it.  Thanks to Peter Mac for his responses to the blog and emails. Didn’t realize he was also influenced by this stuff. I was really shaped by that moment of Punk and Two Tone in so many ways—politically, culturally etc. So the Stooges got another outing on The Basement, from Raw Power this time, as well as Bad Brains and blues punksters The White Stripes.

 

I’m really enjoying The Basement these days as I free my ass up about what to play whatever and wherever my fancy takes me. I’m all over the shop these days. And no one’s yet dissed me for it. What punk and hip hop taught me is that you should take in the whole history of recording, not be genre bound. I hate genre purists. That seems so contrary to the spirit and ethos of hip hop anyway, which is all about cannibalizing/enhancing/dialoguing with other music, sampling it, giving a big shout out to it, and incorporating the grain of old sounds into the new. That’s one of the reasons I love it, and so let’s have more country music and rock and roll and blues and electronica and spoken word and whatever making its way into the soundscape of Base FM. Freeform radio, y’all.

 

Finally finished marking my Bollywood & Beyond essays last night. Yippee. Just the exams to do now and a few administrative meetings and I’m on research and sabbatical leave until July. Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowshah! as Chic shouted. I’ve nixed the possibility of a Cuba trip for 2006, since a big international music conference is going to be held in July 2007. That might be the time to venture there.

 

One thing I’ve been thinking about that some Baseheads might have ideas about is the vogue for chipmunk voices and high-pitched sounds in black Atlantic music in the last few years. You know: Kanye West pitchshifting all those women’s voices, Bollywood strings and voices, Madlib’s Quasimoto persona etc. Why is that aesthetic appealing? When did it really kick in big time? Is it fuelled by all that E that got into the hip hop game circa Stankonia or is it something else. Or do we just want to hear the sounds of little girls sped up? Is it an aesthetic or just a gimmick for a while? Or both? Write to us.

 

Thanks to all listening to the show, and those of you who txted while I was on the air—Damien, Shuchi, Sunil, and others. Cian, I will pop down to Conch on Thursday, after I’ve been paid, so I can pick up the odd platter. Though you’re probably not reading this anyway.

I can't really see how anyone would be happy with the new government. The mood I have picked up seems to be a mixture of amusement and disgust. Clark seems intent on moulding her party after its UK counterpart, where holding onto power is more important than political ideology. Some people seem willing to give all the parties concerned the benefit of the doubt, but I will let their track records speak do the talking. Props to the Green Party who deserved much better. Shame on the rest of them.

 

Elsewhere, it is sad to see the Pakistani earthquake quickly disappear from major news sources, while Katrina still gets mentioned. And it is like the disaster in Guatemala never happened (hope all is good with you Lara). I don't want anyone to take this the wrong way, but surely, America, the supposedly the world's wealthiest and most powerful nation, can take care of its own? The people of Pakistan, Kashmir, and India are much more in need of international attention. See Nabeel’s post below if you want to help. I shudder to think what will happen when the bird flu hits.

 

Also of note, strange to see that despite its massive significance, the referendum in Iraq is barely being mentioned, except for some voting irregularities. Instead we have Saddam trotted out to face what Gwynne Dyer a very selective list of charges. As Dyer rightly points out, by limiting accusations to the events that Saddam is charged with, the Americans avoid facing uncomfortable questions. A quick history recap, up until 1990 America had complicit knowledge, if not a direct hand in Saddam's actions, including "gassing his own people." After 1990 America was at least partly to blame for encouraging groups to revolt against Saddam's tyrannical regime, then leaving them out in the cold to face retribution.

 

Returning back to all things Basement, once again a happy birthday Nabeel. Yes he did fall asleep during Smog's good performance, and his snoring did have people turning heads. I actually did try and poke him but his slumber was deep and not to be interrupted. To be fair he did wake up for Joanna, who was fairly stunning. Her set was indeed shorter than I would have liked, but it must be hard work playing that enormous harp (stunning to watch though). Holding out for her new material with grand anticipation.

 

For the train spotters, the white label of Eric B and Rakim's "I Know You Got Soul" that Nabeel mentioned is actually off a label called Arcola (hence ARC). It is rumoured to be remixed by an artist called Brothomstates, although I cannot confirm this. I am still finding multiple versions of Jay-Z's 99 Problems, the latest being one mashed up with Prince's "Let's Go Crazy" (apparently of a project called the Purple Album). No comment. By the way, for 99 Problems on Danger Mouse's infamous Grey Album uses the Beatles' "Helter Skelter", the song Charles Manson stole. I don't think DM quite claimed it back though. Look out for the Danger Doom project "The Mouse and the Mask." Adult Swim madness!

 

Off to Welli this weekend to see some wonderful people. Apparently there is a punk fest on, but what that entails I cannot say.

 

Also happy belated birthday to Jason!

 

Peace y'all

Forgot to mention that on Monday due to a rebellious stomach I missed the launch of a book of poetry by a friend of mine:

 

Olivia Macassey, Love in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction

 

Congratulations, Liv. I hope to grab a copy soon.

 

An event that might be of interest to Baseheads is the annual conference of the Australia-NZ chapter of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM). This year the organization is meeting on 3-6 December at Victoria University, Wellington. The theme is Contemporary Popular Music Studies. You can check out the program at the link above.

 

You can donate money for South Asian earthquake relief and other crisis situations at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

 

I also received the email below related to the Pakistan Association of New Zealand's effort to send blankets, warm clothes and dry and canned goods to Pakistan and India. 75% is going to Pakistan and 25% to India, I was told by people at the pan-South Asian Shanti Nivas organization for senior citizens in Auckland.  Drop off points are in Mt Roskill and Otahuhu as below. The organization is also accepting financial donations. Details below. There's also a contact number below if you need more information.

Twas a peculiar show show for my old birthday. What a weekend. Youth and age, eh. Euthanasia, some might shout. On The Basement Saturday we had a technical glitch due to our own inadvertent sleight of hand. Thanks to Barry for tech help on the phone. We weren’t off the air for long and the Base computer-navigator brought in some skrawnchy Dirty South hit, I think. Thanks to Joc and others for txting. I’m sure that V Shakin was one of the wits on the old mobile with another Shakatak! Nick brought in some interesting mashups. I love that Eric B thing on Warp or illegal warp or whatever those ARC caps stand for. Rakim is taken to outer space on that one. I know you got soul is probably still in my top 5 tracks of all time, so for a rework to do the trick, it has to be really good. Versions of 99 Problems are multiplying. This week the Beasties were deployed. Can’t remember the other remix. Of course, there’s DM’s. Forgotten what he clashes it with. I prefer What more Can I say with While My Guitar Gently leaps, sorry sleeps, on the Grey Album.  Technical difficulties were compounded by our usual CD decks going AWOL. Only one unfamiliar CD deck and two turntables remained in Base space. Still had a chucklesome time on air and also had an opportunity to wind up Manaia Toa who came in to do his show after ours. 

 

My review of the DVD of Nathaniel Kahn’s film My Architect: A Son’s Journey was lamer and more forgetful than usual, but therefore not as wordy as I tend to be. I forgot to emphasise that the architectects talking about Louis Kahn’s (1906-1974) work and the later buildings (particularly the Bangladesh capital building) were more moving and tearjerking than the narrative of a half Jewish-half Anglo American ‘bastard’ in his early 40s trying to find out about his once-a-week dad. I’m not disparaging that search at all. Just that Nathanial’s WASPish Philly relatives (apart from his aunts) and Louis Kahn’s first wife Esther seemed really cold. The three women in Kahn’s life were really passive victims. Each of them had one child. Each had separate lives, compartmentalized by Kahn within a few miles of each other in and around Philadelphia. Though he fucked these women around and by extension their children, it was hard to emphathise with them, though I guess their capitulation to male power was a sign of the times. Even in retrospect they just loved the ugly little two-timer and just wouldn’t point to his shortcomings. But his work is breathtaking. A kind of spiritual modernism that looked to ancient cultures for architecture of monumental longevity that wasn’t so soulless that it expunged human inhabitants from its design like a lot of that high modernist crap. I wept when a Bangladeshi architect, himself crying, described Kahn’s government building as a gift of democracy. You had to laugh though when one of the Bangladeshi workers from the building thought the filmmaker’s father and the architect of this revered and loved national building was ‘Louis Farrakhan’. Definitely check this film out if you’re interested in architecture or just the lives of artists, and the family memoir/detective story as a doco genre. 

 

I had a fabulous day on my birthday really. Went to Crucial Traders in Kingsland for a hearty breakfast/brunch earlier in the morning. Then browsed in Real Groovy and with a measure of self-discipline only bought a CD of Yesterday’s New Quintet doing Stevie. Did The Basement of course. Nick presented me with the new Caribou album which is excellent and even better than the previous incarnation of Manitoba, and also Antony & the Johnson’s I A Bird Now which I’ve still got to listen to all the way through. In the evening I went with my partner Shuchi and a friend Sunil to Mekong Nua in Kingsland for a hearty Thai-Laotian meal.  Had an excellent green curry with terakihi. I also got a new jacket. An embarrassment of riches that was honestly unexpected. 

 

The next day some friends came over for lunch. Stephen and Misha gave me a Shoot soccer annual from 1974. This included some amazing pictures of British soccer players with mullets and enormous furry sideburns. What innocent times. Now stuff that I grew up with is Vintage. That’s one of the fringe benefits of ageing. It all comes around again, with added value. Adam and Liz bought me the DVD of The Mayor of Sunset Strip, a real rock and roll doco which I haven’t seen yet. But I will definitely review it on The Basement alongside some rawkin’ tunes for a change. Unfortunately the Sunday afternoon in the haze of a sunny hour or three of post-birthday revelries, was marred by one thing. I succumbed to too many liquid pleasures, and mixed the grape and grain to my eternal shame. When Nick and I made it to Joanna Newsom’s show at the Maidment Theatre, I heard one song by Smog—something about ‘Dress sexy for my funeral, dear wife, for once’ and promptly fell asleep. Apparently I was snoring though Nick was too polite to give me a prod with his elbow to wake me. Smog/Bill Callahan’s voice was really lugubrious so I can’t be entirely blamed for snoozing. Then after the interval, I perked up—40 winks is just the ticket—and stayed awake for Joanna Newsom’s entire set. From a distance, she looked lovely in a dress that belonged on the set of John Ford’s western My Darling Clementine. Her voice is fuller, with more depth than her recordings suggest. And the harp playing was just fine. Ms Newsom only played for about an hour or so. Not a long set. A couple of new songs went on forever, more like stream of folky consciousness with many angular changes in melody and tempo, than her crisp songs on The Milk Eyed Mender album. These days I find myself mimicking her voice on a few memorable phrases e.g  ‘and you can see the COUNCillor’. It was getting hot and stuffy as we left the Maidment just after 11 pm. Let’s report only that the queasiness did not depart for another 20 hours. And thanks to Nick for gentlemanly and considerate conduct with his motor car.

This is the last week of teaching for me for some time. Students have exams for another three weeks. I finished my last lecture of the year today in Bollywood & Beyond, and won’t lecture again in my department until mid-July because I will be on research and sabbatical leave. Really looking forward to the chance of serious reading and writing time away from the university.  Will be here for the summer and will travel around the world from May for a couple of months. Hope to visit Cuba as well as the usual research and family and friends enclaves in India, UK and the USA.

Heard yesterday that blues singer and guitarist R.L. Burnside died last week. So I will play a track in his memory this coming Saturday.

I was presumptuous about Peter Dunne and even Winston Peters in the last blog post. They haven’t been consigned to the margins. We’ve now got a more right-wing Labour government. Don’t know how long it will last. Winston Peters as Minister of Foreign Affairs is like having Marc Ellis as Minister for Culture. They just can’t keep their mouths shut when they need to listen. Peter Dunne has ransomed the country. ‘I see a red door and I want it painted black’. 

‘Don’t worry about the government’ was one of Talking Heads’ early tracks (all albums now reissued in extended versions). No worries, my foot.

Thanks and love to old and new friends who have made the last weekend memorable.

Low blog activity in recent weeks due to being snowed under with work duties at the end of the semester and academic year.

 

I’ve also been writing the first draft of a 7,000 word academic essay on the dialogic sampling of South Asian music and African American music. Trying to figure out how we can use Missy Elliot, Timbaland & Magoo, Bollywood Freaks, One Self, Panjabi MC and Jay Z, and M.I.A. to think through wider changes in the production, distribution and consumption of music in an economy characterized by the greater speed and volume of mobile digital information.  Music is informatic! What are the aesthetics and ethics of these encounters between ostensibly different sound worlds? Who’s rippin’ off who? How are musicians and listeners yearning for a bit and byte of the other? Any thoughts would be gratefully received?

 

The earthquake this week in my birth country of Pakistan, and one of my adopted ‘homes’ India has been another blow. After a spate of recent ‘natural’ disasters around the globe, it seems like the rich get richer and the poor suffer for the negligent planning and building construction of those with power and money. This is not Armageddon Time, as Pat Robertson and the snake oil salesmen would have us believe.  Earthly karma makes a difference though. Some disasters can’t be avoided. But they can be contained with the proper efforts. If states and their national and regional governments don’t act with a view to the future then the detrimental effects of phenomena like tsunamis, hurricanes and earthquakes are worse. But capitalism hasn’t tried to correct its myopia. It’s so short sighted and doesn’t care for the long term. Sustainability is just a buzzword, when most of the corporations and their state partners are more concerned with taking and not giving back to the land, air, water or the people. Fuck globalisation, we need planetarity.

 

We’re almost done with the governmenting here in New Zealand. The deals have almost been struck and Winston will be the minister for senior citizens. I’ll be relieved if Peter Dunne has to retreat to the wings. He’s not reasonable or commonsensical at all, but a right-wing family values peddling fly fisherman. His hair wave reminds me of the Big Boy icon from the chain of US restaurants.

 

Check out Onegoodmove for regular bits of reportage and hilarious video clips that expose the US cultural-political landscape. The clips on this site from Jon Stewart’s Daily Show are better than the ones from Bill Maher’s programme. Maher enjoys having a go at religious types, and they deserve it most of the time, but his debate with Salman Rushdie, Andrew Sullivan and Ben Affleck was simplistic in its attack on all religious people. I know the secularists seem to have been relegated in recent years, particularly in an America of intelligent design and end-times rhetoric, but let’s have a principled and ethical secularism. You can still be funny in your criticisms of abusive priests, televangelical hustlers and bigoted mullahs. I say this as a born-again atheist.

 

Live shows. Saw Roots Manuva on his second Auckland night last month. Good to see a jamming funkified reggae band with turntables, but frankly I was rather disappointed by the show. On record, Rodney Smith is tremendous. I love his flow. His content moves between small everyday details and gnomic messages about some serious stuff. The production is innovative drawing in everything from 80s electro to the dub factor and bashment boogie. But I think Rodney was so mashed that he didn’t bother with his rhymes on more than several occasions. I like his Gentleman Jim or Sir Peregrine English gent persona, which was quite cute when he handed flowers to ‘the ladies’, but the ‘Hello Auckland city’ patter got really tiresome. It was like one of those big acts from the 80s like Boston and Styx who would always say, ‘London, we love you’ whenever they were on tour in the UK.  Cue the lighters and candles in the audience. Faintly patronizing really. But then Manuva MC must have had some pretty strong stuff from Northland.  I heard the Wednesday show was less all-over-the-place, more on point, less mashed but more mashed up.

 

Looking forward to Joanna Newsom on Sunday 16th. She’s got a voice that sounds like Kermit the Frog crossed with the great honky tonk singer Kitty Wells, and a harp technique that is percussive and blue. No annoying trills to take you into another soap opera flashback mode. Actually, Newsom’s voice, like MIA’s, is one of those voices that sounds old, and I mean really old, and young at the same time that it’s quite disturbing. Supporting Newsom is Smog. Great voice reminiscent of Lee Hazelwood on opium.

 

And I’ve got my birthday to look forward to on Saturday though I haven’t figured out how to celebrate that in the tunes I play on The Basement.

 

But calling all hip hop heads, can you send me the names of any recent interesting tracks that meld South Asian influences in hip hop and R & B and any African diaspora music really. And any links to related information. Much appreciated. Credis and props will be abundant for any aid in my researches.

 

Thanks for reading and, if you can, listening.

My dietary choice has become the closest thing that I have to religion. As I have grown older I have steered away from the soapbox approach to only bringing it up when it counts (meal time). But as the heading (and some track titles) indicates for the last Basement we did a Vegetarian Day special, openly celebrating a positive choice.

 

For my part I tried to find as many hip-hop songs where vegetarianism is mentioned. There are a bunch of websites that list celebrities who have taken the no-meat option (I still find this a bit strange), and amongst them high several profile hip-hop figures. But not many to talk about it in their work (perhaps it may rule out possible McDonalds product placement money). So not all the songs I ended up playing (sadly) had anything to do with being a veggie. However I am proud to have played the following pro-veggie tracks:

 

Boogie Down Productions—My Philosophy

Blackalicious—Nowhere Fast

Dead Prez—Be Healthy

All Natural—Vegetarian

Bobby Digital—Unspoken Word

Count Bass D—Worst Case Scenario

Why?—Darla

Sage Francis—Different

 

All these artists, at least in the context of those songs profess to not eating meat, which I as a fellow non-meat eater can do nothing but admire (google the song titles for specific lyrics). Vegetarianism as an issue in hip hop (even in underground circles) is a sweet thing (like that amazing cacao white chocolate).

 

After all who hasn't learnt something from KRS-One? And the RZA got some mad knowledge (he was in Ghost Dog after all). My raw foodist friends (the hardcore of the hardcore!) in California particularly like Dead Prez's Be Healthy. I have yet to meet a raw foodist down here in Aotearoa, although I have been told the dedication has caught on in small sectors in Wellington (should a local raw foodist read this shout me back).

 

On a final note this site has gathered a list of this site has gathered a list of 51 places to eat around the country.  Go eat your veggies (they are phat), and save room for desert.

 

Peace y'all

 

Nick

PS: Respect as always to Manaia Toa for telling me to play it LOUD at Musical Chers (the most enthusiastic guy at 420). If I weren't for a dodgy venue I would have done the same for him the night before.

For a couple of days I was pretty sure the election results were supposed to be in yesterday. However all is supposed to be revealed by 2pm on Saturday, although the people in charge of counting aren't making any promises. I am very wary of being optimistic over this but from unofficial accounts through their scrutinisers both Labour and the Green's are happy with the way things are stacking up. So fingers crossed.

 

The other big news for the weekend is Base Base FM's Musical Cherrr's party (well big news if you live in Auckland and listen to Base). Nabeel and I decided to sign up taking our talents beyond the studio. We come the warning that we are not so much mixers as selecta's which has helped us secure the opening spot for the night (see below). Half and hour between two people is not that much, and it kind of rules out me playing 90% of my Fela Kuti catalogue, but will try to deliver something interesting nonetheless for all the souls who desperately want to be at the party as soon as the doors open.

 

That same evening I am actually attending a dinner to celebrate world vegetarian day. This promises to be interesting if only to see how many vegetarians actually show up. I have meet a few people overseas who have remarked that they thought NZ would be a vegetarian paradise. I hated to be the one to dispel part of the Clean Green image that PR agencies have poured millions of dollars into, but we live in a country that still very dependant on meat. Perhaps the ongoing mutation of animal to human viruses will have an impact on this, but I won't hold my breath (will need something more industrial to stop the flu anyway). So to help celebrate the veggie day I am trying to put together a list of hip-hop tracks that deal with the subject. Any suggestions between now and the show are welcome.

 

Also upcoming are both DJ Nu-Mark and Manaia Toa's second Axis gig at the Grand Circle in the St James. There is a slight personal dilemma in choosing between the two, if only because Nu-Mark promises to bring the rare 7" madness. But for those who have not checked out Manaia Toa, Paddy, Simon and Wolfpack spin before, they great DJ's and super cool people. On a personal level I have to say that Galatos gets a bit much when it is busy. Damn bottleneck design.

 

Looking back, I had a lot of fun at Roots Manuva on his Thursday night show. Talking to one person who went to both nights, the feeling was that Wednesday was more of an energetic performance, while Thursday was more "laid back", perhaps as a consequence of sampling some natural product. At the gig I was approached by a woman who swore she knew me asking if my name was Wade. I am now slightly fearful that nature has played some cruel duplication joke. Am hoping her comments were in line with the natural product thing.

 

Lovely to hang out with Amber last week at Roots Manuva and beyond. Big ups to Anand for dropping by the studio last week, hope your trip back to Welli was OK. Also not sure who the guy was who was sleeping in the studio throughout our whole last show (didn't think this was actually possible), but hope you found yourself a better spot to catch some Z's.

 

Peace y'all

Whenever I get down to do the blog, I try and consider whether this particular forum should be mostly about music. After all its derived from our show on Base. I pretty much conclude that we often bring politics into our music, so hope that you indulge me. When we played our selections this week we had an election theme (the track titles should allude to something in case you missed it). However we were conscious of the fact that on election day, no one in the media is supposed to say anything that would influence anyone's vote (there was not a note posted in the studio but we are a responsible pair). So although both of us were extremely nervous that there would be shift to the right, all we could encourage people to do was to get out and vote. But I am pretty sure that the Base listenership is not made up of a lot of Brash supporters (although if there are we do not want to exclude you from our mainstream).

 

I think there is about a week to go before we know the final tally of the special votes. I want to be as optimistic as possible and believe that the previous election trends will continue, so that the Green Party will get Nándor Tánczos back in. He is after all the only MP I have ever seen at a dance party. More seriously his voice is important in getting some well needed drug law reform underway. And an extra MP for the Green's puts more weight on vital issues that seemingly get ignored by virtually everyone else, namely doing our best to avoid environmental chaos.

 

Before the election I thought that the biggest problem to the country was Winston Peters. He had consistently run on essentially a racist platform throughout NZ First's political history. However, after Saturday a new contender stepped up to the plate, Peter Dunne. Not that I held a lot of respect for United Future in that past, I thought that the fact that they had won as many seats in 2002 was bizarre. Their stance against civil unions was absurd and thankfully failed. But despite all that I just thought of them all as a nuisance at best, knowing that this time around their support base would drop. Thankfully I was right, and United Future lost more than half their ministers. Unfortunately it was not enough, as now Dunne wants to act high and mighty proclaiming he cannot work with the Green Party despite the fact that they have a much stronger base than he does. My big hope now is that Labour does the right (or should that be proper?) thing and leave him out of government all together. Although this clip by Bill Maher is refers to the American state of mind, it alludes to Dunne's idiotic position against the Greens. I am not going to go into too much more local analysis, mainly because other sites have done some very comprehensive breakdowns, including the wonderful Frog Blog.

 

Bringing in the musical element to political issues, there have been a couple of Hip Hop response tracks to the devastation of Katrina. K-Otix have released a song built on Kanye West's comments called George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People. Mos Def has also busted out with Katrina Klap. This might signal a shift away from endless rapping about materialism back to attacking authority (I try to be optimistic). Also nice to see Hugo Chávez offering aid to Katrina victims. Maybe that is why Pat Robinson wants him dead? Finally what is up with the right wing Christians claiming that The March of the Penguins supports the concept of intelligent design? Hopefully it will make them more concerned about the disappearing ice caps (still trying to be optimistic).

 

peace y'all

Well unless you live in a cave you probably know that the election is this weekend. Such is its impact that the cultish Exclusive Brethren have taken time out to try and convince us godless folk of its importance. I know this has been pointed out before but you would think that having spent half a million dollars to try and steer things their way they would also be inclined to turn up and vote. Apparently not.

 

Unfortunately this is just one of many examples that lend this election season perfectly into Hunter Thompson's phrase "Fear and Loathing". While watching all the horrible things that transpired during last year's American presidential election there was of course a sense of outrage (if only the world could have voted then).  But the biggest consolation of that outcome was that at least a stronger democratic system existed here. Similarly when the British system re-elected the Labour party, despite what should have been serious trouble for the Tony Blair, there was the feeling that at least our Parliamentary system was more representative of its population.

 

Sadly what has transpired is an extremely dirty campaign in which few - if any - of the parties can be applauded for their vote gathering tactics. Negative ads and smear campaigns seem to have become the norm. Statistics and promises are thrown from left and right, hoping to appeal to base instincts. There are a plethora of experts each standing up to claim why one set of numbers are right and others wrong. Empty phrases such as "traditional family values" and "mainstream NZ" are thrown around. And poll after poll has shown was a confused mess it all has become.

 

I honestly don't know what is going to happen on Saturday. I do have my hopes, hope that votes are not cast out of fear, ignorance, or greed. Perhaps this is naive, but then again we don't live in Kansas and don't have to worry about Fox News. Tune into the Basement on Saturday as Nabeel and I try and figure out how to construct an election special, but don't forget to vote.

 

On a quick music note, once again big ups to Professor Pitt and Jedi. Glad to get a chance to play some of Pitts organic hip hop down in NZ, and great to go back to Lyricist Lounge to check out Jedi (After the Show). Will get some of his Reggaeton soon. And if all goes well I think I finally found a good swap for my Roots Manuva ticket.

 

Peace y'all

Glad that Nick is back safe and sound and happy birthday to Leith, his Moms. Looking forward to getting back in The Basement groove this Saturday and checking out all those wang dang doodley tunes Nick tracked down for me stateside. 

 

Anyhow, I’ve been a bit delayed posting the track listing from last Saturday due to marking around fifty essays on Bollywood films. All that’s done and dusted, yippee. Had great weather over this two-week vacation from teaching. The Waiheke wedding anniversary 24-hour chill-out was glorious. This was a welcome break from ongoing building work in my bedroom.

 

Also got to see some DVDs (to be reviewed on the radio soon) and make some mix or rather compilation CDs that summed up the psychosoundscape right now.

 

In fact, last week’s show was really a response to Hurricane Katrina and the flooding of New Orleans and various parts of Louisiana and Mississippi. My friend Matthew Bannister, who’s a former member of the Flying Nun recording artists Sneaky Feelings, and the Dribbling Darts of Love, and currently in The Weather, came along to play some tunes from the Dirty South and assorted tidbits.

 

Matthew and I also talked about Fred Wesley Jr., legendary trombonist with James Brown and Bootsy Collins’ Rubber Band. Wesley Jr’s autobiography Hit Me Fred: Recollections of a Sideman was published earlier this year. Matthew reviewed the book and we discussed Wesley’s job as arranger for James Brown’s band. We also played some of the man’s work.

 

But the bulk of the show was our homage to New Orleans, Louisiana and Mississippi. I feel a mixture of sadness and anger about the response to the disaster. And you can be sure some of that anger will be directed at George Dubya (Go Kanye West!) in the next show. It’s going to be more difficult for the Prez to make political mileage out of the September 11 anniversary this year.

 

Many Baseheads will know that New Orleans has an incredible jazz tradition that stems from its Creole history (Kid Koala has been diggin’ in those crates recently). New Orleans gave us those rolling R & B piano rhythms in the work of Professor Longhair and Fats Domino, the definitive rock and roll drumming of Earl Palmer on the early Little Richard cuts for Specialty Records of New Orleans, the spacey almost dubbed out funk of The Meters, the psychedelicate soul sophistication of Allen Toussaint, the aching soul of Irma Thomas and the Neville Brothers, the shamanesque swamp funk of Dr John (Mac Rebennack) and so many other moments of pure weird hybridized musical bliss. The radio stations of the city were heard in the Caribbean and those cuts dominated the early Jamaican sound systems like Downbeat in the late 1950s. Jamaica’s Alpha School jazz musicians that went on to be the Skatalites and session men for countless recordings in Kingston were steeped in New Orleans music. More recently Nawlins has given us the Dirty South bootylicious hip hop sound. Louisiana also produced the swamp boogie of Cajun and Zydeco music and the crazy stylings of Jerry Lee Lewis.   And Mississippi and the Delta is the home of the blues. More southern tunes to follow this Saturday…

I am now back in NZ, having had a fantastic time in Cali. The last few days in the states became a bit of a mad rush as more guests began to show up from around the country. I met an MC called Jedi who appears on the first Lyricist Lounge. Damn could he spit. He is now working heavily in developing his own label and getting lots of Reggaeton acts out there (I had not heard of Reggaeton before but it is sort of like Spanish Dancehall and is getting pretty popular in the Americas). I also met a guy called Professor Pitt who was kind enough to pass me some of his tracks where he rhymes of beatboxing and the sound of a harp. Tres cool. He has also done the first Hip Hop Kung Fu movie called Hip Hop Dynasty Vol 2: Mixture, which features a guest spot by DJ Qbert.  On the way to pick up Pitt, Jedi was kind enough to take me through Berkeley giving me a little more Amoeba time. But then we got a little lost and had to bust it back to Mill Valley to arrive just moments before the wedding ceremony.

 

The wedding was great, really beautiful seeing two wonderful people commit to each other with all their friends and family surrounding them. Then the food was all vegan (super cool) with a vanilla bean wedding cake to top it off. Some time approaching midnight few of us started to fell the weight of a long day and set about trying to get home. Pat was kind enough to offer his car so that myself, Maggie and Mihoko could venture out into the night. This was all cool, but then we hit a flat tire. So I had to step up to the plate and do the big change. I still can't remember if I had done this before, but with a little help from Maggie “Muscles” got the spare on avoiding any trouble in the infamous Mill Valley. We then got lost and had a few problems figuring out how to work an American gas pump, but eventually arrived at home in once piece.

 

The next day would be my last in the country and kicked off with the final nice breakfast of coffee and bagels with avocado and tomato with Maggie (less than $5 for two people!) and a trip to the Bocce Ball court. I then was offered a ride to the airport from a guy called Mike. This meant leaving a few hours before I had planned, but beggars cannot be choosers. I did a mad rush to pack and say goodbye then set out South with Mike and a couple of other Howard's Beach guys. They wanted to go to the Marina in SF so I did my best to give directions making several mistakes, but still making it in time. From there was the trip to SF international, where in check in the I was advised that X-Rays could damage camera film forcing me to search through my suitcase. My good friend Lord also made a nice trip to the airport to keep me company before the flight (ISM!). Then it was back on United airlines, where upon the fruit juice in my carry on bag burst. It was the thick Spirulina kind of juice. Had to covertly use the airline blanket to try and soak it all up. When I got to NZ the sniffer dog came right up to me and the customs guy asked what I had. But as it was spilt juice he seemed not to care.

 

Anyway lots of shouts and respect to all those over there: Anthony and Liz (the wonderful couple), Lord (gotta do it again sooner than later), Maggie (super strong in so many ways), Shaggy (mad science), Mihoko (raw knowledge), Pat (lotta beans), Jedi (Reggaeton 2006!), Pitt (organic flows), Shaanan (write on), Jillian (will get your NZ fan club going), Francisco (thanks for the roll and hook me up with your doctor), Bridgett and Todd (thanks again for the ride, am ever in debt), Rob (hugs), Mike (take care of those animals), Jimmy (come surf in NZ), Antony (that's “celebrant”), Paula (Auckland or São Paulo?), Liz's parents (if I am in Seattle...), Liz's brothers (made it), and Anthony’s Grandfather (straight from Brooklyn). There are quite a few more but I am at a loss of how to spell their names so will not embarrass myself.

 

Finally I got some photos that I will try and post (I still operate in the analogue days) but Mihoko has put some up on her raw Japanese site. Tune in to the Basement this Saturday as I try and make a cohesive set out of all the new sounds.

 

(also a very big happy birthday to my amazing mother)

 

Peace y’all

Still in Cali. San Rafael is a bit further from the city than I had expected but have made some trips in for the music shopping. Lots of good stuff, but my mind was totally scattered so was running around Amoeba trying to think of everything I could possibly want. I should have made a list. I am hoping that I will get me a chance to go to the Berkley stores as well but time is running out.

The people here are fantastic. When they talk about red and blue states I am not sure if this area would fit into either. They are certainly not happy with what is going on, but would probably not be happy to support all the comprimises by the Democrats.

There is plenty of great food here (a few raw food resturants), and being vegan is no problem. There are lots of Yoga spots, but hardcore exercise early in the morning kinda freaks me out. Some people here do this thing called sun gazing where they stare at the sun as it sets. Haven't really given it a good shot as don't want to mess my eyes up any further.

Peace y'all

Nabeel: So I'm having few problems as a Mac user with my postings. The information and interface for PC users (of which Nick is one) seems to be different. Anyway, this might mean that the following playlist for last Saturday's show will just look like one long scroll of tracks. So apologies but we'll fix this layout issue soon, I hope. Anyway, the theme around this week was MOOG. Robert Moog, the inventor of this synthesizer died last week so Jochen and I decided to pay homage and play some of the tunes that use the Moog or 'electronically enhanced' tracks that have happened because Moog opened up our ears in new directions back in the late 1960s and 70s. I also reviewed the DVD documentary Moog, directed by Hans Fjellestad, which was made a couple of years ago and released on DVD this year. Sorry to Peter Mac, who had requested/suggested Dick Hyman's Moog-laden version of James Brown's Give it up or turn it a loose as a selection for the show. Couldn't find it unfortunately. Please send us the names of any other Moogy classics. We barely scratched the surface of the archive. Diggin in the crates... Nabeel:

Kool & The Gang--Summer Madness

Stereolab--Moogie Wonderland

Walter Carlos--Scarlatti Sonata

Buffalo Daughter--Dr Moog

Morcheeba--The music that we make (Omni Trio mix)

Billy Preston--Space race

Sun Ra & his Intergalactic Myth Science Arkestra--Outerspaceways incorporated Eddie Warner--Pathetic motion

Joc:

Outkast feat. George Clinton--Synthesizer

Unknown artist--Superstition

DJ Food--Full Bleed

DJ Shadow--Organ donor

Dizzee Rascal--Learn

Roots Manuva--Witness

The Herbaliser feat. Jean Grae--If you close your eyes

Jackson & his Computer Band--Rock on

Nabeel:

DVD review: Moog, directed by Hans Fjellestad (2004)

Kraftwerk--Music Non-Stop (live)

BBC Radiophonic Workshop/Ron Grainer--Dr Who (original theme)

Jonzun Crew--Pac Jam

The Coup feat. Bernie Worrell--5,000,000 ways to kill a C.E.O.

New Order--Blue Monday

Joc: Cherry Wine--What I'm talking about

APSCI feat. Tunde of TV on The Radio--Runaway

Z-Trip--Breakfast Club

Evil Nine feat. Aesop Rock--Crooked

One Self--Be your own Coldcut--Atomic Moog (Live in Barcelona!)

West Street Mob--Break dance electric boogie

Good to hear from Nick out there on the Best Coast. I'm envious of his trip to the Amoeba record store on Haight Street. I'm off to Waiheke for a couple of days to celebrate my 9th wedding anniversary. Take care and keep listening and writing to us. I hope you're out there. We didn't get any text messages this week. Boo hoo.

As I am on the roadthe next few blog entries will be rather personal. I do realise that it is mostly my friends who read this anyway, but apologies for anyone who doesn’t   know me if this isn’t that interesting. So I am safely in greater San Francisco now after a grueling trip. To save money I decided to fly through Sydney to SF rather than taking one of the now many direct flights that Air NZ offers. This didn’t seem so bad on the way to Sydney as I was given a sweet spot with plenty of room. The Warriors were on the plane and the son of the son of the coach (who was maybe 6 or 7) seemed very excited that his dad had pulled him away from school to see the team’s last game for the season. I don’t follow the sport so have no idea what was happening or any likely outcome.

 

Arriving in Sydney was not too bad. The departure lounge looked like it had some promise. But then I realised you could pretty much walk around it in about 10 minutes and there was little left to do. So I started reading Sylvia Plath’s novel The Bell Jar. I got engrossed and finished it. Fantastic book (thanks Amber!)

 

Flying from Sydney to SF was not a wonderful experience. In a telling moment, when boarding  I saw a woman with a bag for something like the 11th Annual Congress of Pain (or about Pain?). I didn’t  have good legroom, the guy next to me kept hogging the arm rest, and as I was on an aisle seat I had nothing to put my head against so got no rest. The movies sucked (Kicking and Screaming, half of Something Like Love, Cheaper By the Dozen, and something else I forget). I must say that the food was good though, props to me for ordering a special meal. This did mean that I got my food way before anyone around me though.

 

Getting into the US was a barrel laughs too. The post 9/11 experience means having your fingerprints and photo taken. This made things slow for all us non-resident types. But apart from that no worries. Once out though I had the very generous Bridget pick me up (very much so given that I had not met her before) and the wonderful Anthony and Liz invitation into their home even though they are away. So now am here in San Rafael, which is a very nice community. Lots of promising places to eat and interesting stores. I found a music store already and scoped out one potential bargain. Tonight if all goes well will catch up with an old high school friend and get some Ethiopian food. I have also passed some time trying to keep awake by watching Vincent Gallo’s Brown Bunny. It is not something that I would recommend to anyone who doesn’t already completely love Gallo (you know who you are). Indulgence is the name of the game.

 

More soon.

 

Peace.

Wow, Nabeel's post certainly did generate feedback. It feels strange to think people are actually reading us. Next thing you know we shall be invited to outline the state of the nation on prime time TV. Or not.

 

Wellington was wonderful last weekend. Relatively warm and wind free which contributed to my well being. Caught up with all my lovely friends (this one is for you Jenny, Russell, and Amber) and met a whole bunch of others. It is nice finding lots of other people with similar dietary outlooks, but at the same time not having to focus on this issue. Also got a chance to DJ at a party. Well sort of, it was a tag team effort with then birthday girl Jenny, and I had to resort to playing off my iPod. I don't think that the audience really dug LCD Soundsystem's Losing My Edge. Then again it could have just been that time of the evening.

 

Also had a nice chance to visit Radio Active for the Roots and Culture show. I was warned that the studio was a bit messy, but I tell you nothing can really top the setting of Base FM. Thanks again to Amber for taking me up there and for the wonderful walk to check out the ever smelly seals.

 

Found some nice musical scores in the Welli stores too. I am most stoked to find Cloudboy's self titled debut EP (NZ music!). Have been looking for this one for awhile, ever hopeful that the promise of a repress will materialise. Am not too sure what has happened to the group as they set off for Europe and seem to have gone their separate ways. Here is hoping for some new music soon.

 

Tomorrow I am off to San Fran for a wedding. I in the city for a brief period (pre 9/11 2001) and it was great. Have been really looking forward to going back and catching up with my friends. Good food should be on the menu, not to mention a whole range of excellent record stores. Shall have to make some tough decisions. Have had to trip my beard though and hope my name is not on some crazy checklist.

 

All this running around has left me a little out of the political loop. This feels a little strange for a political junkie like me. I have come across so many different people over the last several weeks who pretty much cover the political spectrum (with the notable exception of any Winston Peters supporters or Destiny Party nutcases). I have no idea how this is all going to go down, but it is hard to be optimistic.

 

But it is good to see GWB struggle with growing opposition to his war. Strange how he didn't have the time to take off from his holiday to go talk to Cindy Sheehan, but was able to make a previously unscheduled trip to Utah to try and bolster support. Also strange that although Utah is not exactly known for its liberal tendencies, many people, including the Salt Lake City Mayor came out to protest his visit. You have to have some crazy warped vision to try and pretend that things are going OK in the Middle East.

 

Anyway time is slipping away and I need to finish packing. Will do my best to post from a whole new time zone. Tune in to the show this week to hear Nabeel and Joc pay tribute to the late great Robert Moog.

 

Peace.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my 'controversial' post about reggae and hip hop in this country. I was surprised and pleased that most responses were supportive.

 

In the last show, Jochen responded by playing some local reggae as well as his some of his other Ja-flavoured faves. I'm not sure if he proved my case wrong with the local stuff but a nice try anyway, Joc :-) Twas a soundclash of sorts. As I said on air, I'd put my French reggae up against NZ reggae any time. Have you heard that wicked Serge Gainsbourg album he did with Sly and Robbie? And I really enjoy that hit 'Joe le Taxi' by Vanessa Paradis. She mentions Yma Sumac in there!

 

Anyhow, the reggay will still be in the Basement jeggay for some time to come. More heavy heavy monster sounds to follow.

 

Thanks to Tim from Elephant Traks in Melbourne for sending us some Aussie Hip hop (the excellent Hermitude album) and to Stinky Jim for the Round Trip Mars release of the International Observer album. Now there's some moody local reggae. Tom Bailey has gone to Londinium but the music was made in Aotearoa.

 

In the meantime, I mentioned on air that I would be reviewing the DVD of the documentary 'Moog' this coming Saturday.  Sadly, in the last few days, we've heard that Robert Moog died. So the show will include a tribute. I'm bringing some of my favourite Moog sounds to play on the show. So if you've got any suggestions of tracks you'd like to hear, let me know on this blog, and I'll try and play those selections on the next Basement. I've got Kool & the Gang, Billy Preston, Stereolab, Hot Butter and Funkadelic in the works, but would appreciate more suggestions. I even picked up a country moog album from a terrific antique store in Helensville some months ago.

 

As well as the stuff that makes it to the Basement playlist, I'm listening to a lot of honky tonk right now: Ernest Tubb, Faron Young, Buck Owens, Kitty Wells. Maybe I'll risk some of this on air. I'm sure the odd Basehead will appreciate a Texan twang or Tennessee waltz interspersed amongst the riddims and rhymes.

 

Otherwise picked up a few tracks by the Perceptionists whose album title track 'Black Dialogue' I will definitely play on the upcoming show. Killer Diller! The track about the Iraq war, 'Memorial Day', is fantastic too.

 

As Nick noted recently, the Gaza pull-out (sounds like post-coital penis movement) has taken up a shitload of media time and space. Oh, woe is me, it's just like being ripped from your home by the Nazis! I couldn't believe this analogy from some of the Zionist settlers. If only the Palestinians had as much television coverage for their mass expulsions from land and towns for the last sixty years. Everybody's praising the Israeli Defence Force for their peaceful repatriation of the settlers. I was thinking, Man, they've had a lot of practice turning people out of their houses and demolishing them, so you'd expect them to do a decent job. Maybe 6,000 Jewish settlers at most and 1.4 Palestinians have lived in Gaza. Those settlers occupied about a third of the land. However, even with the settlers gone, Gaza is a prison camp or Bantustan, depending on your point of view. It's by no means clear how much access the Israelis are going to give Palestinians to cross the border with themselves or their economic goods. Some commentators have said, despite a couple of settlements disappearing, the West Bank is still occupied and the Israeli government is committed to securing large Jewish settlements in that territory. The wall they've built has also taken more Palestinian land. Dropping Gaza as part of Greater Israel was also a demographic move. You can't have a state founded on a Jewish religious identity that might have more non-Jews than Jews in it. So cut off the Arab bits that threaten to shift the demographic balance. It will be a long time before the Palestinians can hope seriously that East Jerusalem will be liberated from occupation.

 

The Iraq debacle keeps getting worse, with the Americans hopefully realising that you can't just come up with a constitution in five minutes. Did the great founders of the United States have to do that? No, and they weren't even bombed to smithereens in their 'liberation'? Like the Mujahideen the USA supported in Afghanistan with Saudi Arabian help, including one-time CIA buddy Osama Bin Laden, this is a case of Dr Frankenstein's monster about to run amok. You say you're going to liberate the country, but then you create a situation that produces possible division of the nation into a federation that might dissolve into three nations. For a start, a Kurdistan. That will please the Turkish government no end. Then you punish the Sunni Arabs who had disproportionate power under Saddam Hussein. Well, you punish those who haven't gone into the puppet administration. In the process, you create a situation where Shias want more power and possibly an Islamic theocracy or Shariah law and thus potentially extend the influence of Iran and Islamist statism in the region. Iran is acting beligerent and goes on to develop its nuclear power because it knows the US is in above its head in Iraq. The war is more and more unpopular at home. Every day more news of dead troops. What next, a wave of September 11 movies to rebuild confidence and belief in the 'reasons' for going to war. Watch this space. And all in the name of bringing peace and democracy and ridding the world of weapons of mass destruction.

 

At home, I've actually watched quite a few of the election debates. The tax cut was bathetic. It seems not to have given National the leg-up it needed. Don Brash can't perform on radio and television. He says the same thing every time, doesn't recall his party's policies very easily and is a bit vague about details. Never mind certain policies going by lunchtime. I couldn't believe he made such a cheap and lame/cliched shot at the Greens with that crack about a Green Transport minister having us all ride bicycles. Groan. Helen Clark seems to have her teeth stuck in. Act is out it seems. So Rodney Hyde will be gone. Doesn't he remind you of Uncle Fester from the Addams Family? I'm hoping Winston gets trounced at the voting polls and disappears too. There's a chance now that he's seen Islamo-terrorists in every corner of Aotearoa. Although I fear that Winston might turn up as a talkshow host to haunt us, maybe with Mike King as a sidekick. OK, I'm screaming at the thought. I'm amazed that immigration, biculturalism meets multiculturalism debates have not entered that much into the campaign apart from the usual Treaty bashing and National's 4 year probation policy for all new migrants. On the latter, I was tempted to retort that all migrant workers should then not pay any taxes until they're given the green light to become legit residents of our fair isles. As far as the media coverage of the campaign goes, I like the directness and hands-on approach of the campaign but I found that whipped up audience in the TV1 debate between Clark and Brash a bit too much. It's New Zealand not the Globe Theatre. The proles on each side were yelling and whooping it up a storm. Well primed by the TVNZ folks. I'm sure Bill Ralston was out there egging em on. Gawn! Louder louder! Anyway, look forward to the next two weeks and wonder if the banana skins will owe their slipperiness to some added oil from the media or to the actions of the political combatants themselves.

 

How come the election campaigns haven't had their own songs? Or maybe I've missed something?

 

Safe travel to the US for Nick and thanks again to Joc for coming in last Saturday. See you this one too.

 

Look forward to hearing from readers out there.

Once again I have left my blog entry right until the end of the week, and once again I don't really have that much to say about music (talking all that jazz). Although I do have to respond to Nabeel's somewhat provocative last entry. We do live in a relatively small community that can be quite sensitive. I have to admit that I have been a little worried that people would take his comments the wrong way. However it is nice to see some supportive feedback come his way. For my own part without going into any detail or pointing fingers I do think that a reasonable part of the local music community is over hyped. This is probably the case for virtually ever other music market in the world. That being said there are acts that I think are amazing acts and they should be celebrated. When I come across these I am more than happy to give them my support, not because they are local, but because they make good music.

 

Last night I ventured out to see John Ralston Saul at the Hyatt. He talked about the collapse of globalism, the subject of his new book. It was a great talk, where he did not try and force an ideology, but rather made arguments about why the big drive to push globalism was in decline, if not nearly at an end. The central idea of this is that the economic dogma that has been dominant since the 1970s is in a period of crisis. To back this up he made several points including the return to a focus of the nation state in the post 9-11 world, the reconsideration of debt obligations by Argentina and several countries in Africa, and the growing arguments between established economists. Great speaker and a good evening. Also must note he commented on Garth George's absurd column about Islam in the NZ Herald. It is a shame anyone would take this seriously let alone publish it.

 

Have been bombarded by images of the Jewish withdrawal from Gaza. Wonder if the next time a Palestinian community is uprooted they will receive equal coverage? Or even half as much? Just a thought.

 

I am off to the wonderful metropolis of Wellington this weekend to see some even more wonderful friends. With my upcoming trip to San Francisco this is going to mean I will not be on Base for three weeks. I am pretty sure Nabeel will have some guests come in though so keep tuned.

 

Big David L rest in peace.

 

Peace y'all

So it’s almost two weeks since I blogged anything other than the playlists for the shows.  So here are a few scattered thoughts and things I need to get off my chest. Damn that asthma. Pass me the critical ventolin.

 

This week we played a predominantly jazz-oriented set though I sneaked in a couple of reggae tunes: Linton Kwesi Johnson ‘Street 66’, which makes me think of police raids on black residents of London, and Barry Brown’s long version of ‘Promises’ which reminds me of politicians and their blarney during an election campaign. The latter also has an incredibly militant dub, produced by Jammy, I think. The latter track was played for Danny Lemon of Roots Hi Fi in Wellington, who informed me that Barry Brown had died recently.

 

One of the thought-provoking things about music I read in the last couple of weeks was an interview with musician Tom Bailey (of the International Observer) in the NZ Herald. He pointed out that reggae and dub in New Zealand lacked militancy in its sound and affect. He went as far as to say it was ‘barbecue reggae’.

 

And I have to say that I agree with him and don’t think this is just the bias of a Brit in the Antipodes. There’s a summery good time tropical feel to reggae in the Pacific. It’s bland and too complacent and the lyrics generally suck. Even when they’re political they tend to be simplistic and cliched. The sound is more concerned with chug-a-lug ambience. It’s like Bob Marley’s ‘Jamming’ and ‘Could you be loved’ are the models, rather than the many versions of ‘Green Bay Killing’ or Junior Murvin’s ‘Police and Thieves’. Even bands that are not strictly ‘reggae’ artists have this kind of all’s-well-with-the-world vibe and make affirmative noises that lack grounding in the material of daily ‘politics’ (with a little p, not just a big P). Bu-bum-bum-bum.

 

In Jamaican music, the names of the rhythms respond to stuff going on, and the lyrics from people like Papa San, Capleton and others just talk about the ordinary stuff of daily life including the nasty stuff, even if they’re offensive some of the time. And they go on about Iraq and the Middle East and about the police and stuff like that.

 

A lot of New Zealand dub-influenced music is just too NICE: ‘let’s all chill and smoke another doobie so that we might enjoy the view. Sweet as. I can feel my culture in my veins.’ The naff advertising for fruit juices and rum drinks says it all. Let’s have more blacks grinning on TV. I thought it couldn’t get any worse than the Magnum ads with the black mammy. New Zealand likes its darkies, nah?

 

I’m not against the downbeat blues-y aesthetic and I’m not just a 1970s roots reggae nostalgialator. My favorite dubbed up track right now is Kode9 & Daddy Gee’s “Sign of the Dub” which is a really dread adaptation/version of Prince’s ‘Sign of the Times’. It makes Rhythm & Sound’s glacial dub pacing seem like happy house tunes.  It’s ‘as serious as cancer’ but also has a dark sense of humour.

 

I don’t want all music to reflect the times or the zeitgeist in an obvious and direct way, but I’d welcome more of our music to be engaged with the serious shit that’s going down on the local and global levels.

 

Big ups to Gareth Shute for winning the Montana Award with his book on Aotearoa Hip Hop, but most commercial NZ Hip Hop remains mediocre in its lyrics, flow and production style. It largely imitates a narrow American substratum of the genre rather than finding its own aesthetic. The media can’t stop hyping it up though. Now I’m not saying it’s all crap, and I do believe in supporting local production, voices blah blah blah, but can’t we all get real and accept that the stuff made here may not ALL be the best thing since Eric and Ra came out with “I know you got soul”.

 

The national boosterism that says anything that sells must be good, just clouds critical judgment about local music of all sorts. Some of it’s good, but a lot of it is really boring and bland. I’m glad it’s helping people in the neighborhoods, developing the local economy and producing some nifty T-shirts, but that doesn’t mean the music is anything to write home about. These days it seems to function largely as a marketing vehicle for mobile phones to the youth and the growing brown demographic. NZ Hip Hop is not standing up, but sitting down to drink its moonshine with the corporate execs. Rap label markets forty-ouncers of Lion Red next? Paid in Full, right.

 

OK, got that off my chest. I’m sure some will brand me as seditious and not ‘loyal’ (cue that song) and another pom that wants to put New Zild down. But that’s the nationalist reflex mechanism that can’t take any criticism. Besides I’m also a New Zealander too (been here 8 years) and I know that many more dyed-in-the-wool Kiwis will agree with me.

Although others were less enthusiastic, I managed to get myself along to the Roots this last Tuesday, and was very stoked that I did (thanks again Karina!) I did see them play last year, which was amazing, but that was seriously hampered by poor sound. This time around, although not perfect, the sound was considerably better, allowing making it easier to understand Black Thought and the amazing female singer that they had bought along. The poster promised a two hour show, and they more than delivered on this, going through much of the back catalogue in style, sometimes giving songs the full treatment, and more often integrating them into other tracks. The covers were also very abundant with tracks by Led Zepplin, Liquid Liquid, Chic, A Tribe Called Quest, Amerie, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Leadbelly, Ol' Dirty Bastard and the Wu-Tang Clan, plus a whole bunch of others that escape me. Complete props must go to a very skilled and highly entertaining group. My only regret is not heading up to Rising Sun to check ?uestlove DJ, in what was apparently a three hour set.

 

I guess the next big gig is One Self, but I won't be here for that one (somewhat sadly). Then is Roots Manuva who has been so popular that they have started a second show. The downside to this is now my posse of friends seems to be split over two nights. Can't we all just go along? On a non-musical event related note, John Ralston Saul, who wrote Voltaire’s Bastards and the Unconscious Civilization is coming to NZ for a talk on the Collapse of Globalism. I think he is only in Auckland speaking at the Hyatt at 6.00pm next Thursday (August 18). Will undoubtedly try to get along. Must try and fit a trip to Welli in too. Busy times.

 

I watched a bit of the leaders debate last night, as the worm turned.  I am still puzzled why the worm is necessary. Do people really need to be see what other people are thinking? Is the fact that Peter Dunne gets a positive worm result mean that someone else is more likely to vote for him? Shouldn't you actually look at his track record and what his party stands for as a real measure rather than some else's perception of a soundbite? I still hope for a system where substance reigns over style.

 

Internationally things are joyous as ever. Iran is happy to play chicken with the EU and America as it pushes its nuclear capabilities. I came across this nice round-up of the situation by Michael Schwartz, who rightly points out that despite bloodlust of its politicians America is in no position to invade anyone right now leaving Iran the right bargaining chips. The hardliners on either side are doing none of us any favours. Fighting the good fight is Cindy Sheehan, who after losing her son to the conflict in Iraq has set about trying to pressure George W, to withdraw American forces. Like many before her, Sheehan has been denied access to the President, but she is persisting. Thankfully there is a reasonable amount of coverage to show a broader audience what a heartless swine George really is.

 

Back to everyday life, Coco Solid are playing the Wine Bar tonight (sweeeeeet). Not sure how that is all going to fit together, but it promises to be another fine performance. Tomorrow thinking about doing a jazz set on Base. Am brushing up on my Ellington now, but am not sure how this will come in effect, as planning anything too much takes the fun away, so will have to wait and see. On a jazz related note I have been reading the excellent Visions of Jazz by Gary Giddins. I can't recommend it enough for anyone interested in the evolution of the music and most of its great players.

 

Finally Happy birthday to Robyn!

 

Peace.
