Iggy Pop - The Passenger

Post  Billy Ruben on Mon Oct 25, 2010 8:13 pm

...There was a time,this guy ruled above all,that period 1975-1978,as Bowie helped him out of the sanitarium,got him a RCA contract and delivered the Berlin albums,The Idiot and Lust For Life,recorded at Hansa Studios,a fucking concrete bunker,with gun turret aperatures and all.
If only time travel existed,to soak up the vibe,and walk the streets of a city divided...

The Neon Boys - Love Comes In Spurts

Post  Billy Ruben on Wed Oct 27, 2010 4:16 am

...on a good day,second favourite song of all time,the Neon Boys only released a four track ep,but the influence is obvious.This is proto-Television as they renamed themselves there soon after.Richard Hell's and Tom Verlaines first recording and it sounds almost professional compared to the Fairlands demos that had Brian Eno producing them,Eno,being very influential to New York punk and later the metamorphis
into "NO WAVE".

here,have "That's All I know",until I upload the track...









...sounds like the early Velvets,brilliant all round.
Lyrics:
Love Comes in Spurts (1st version--No relation but title to later better-known version.)
(music T. Verlaine, Shake Records: Hell Past & Present e.p. vinyl, 1980, o.p.)
[appears on (British) Overground over19cd: Neon Boys e.p. cd, 1991]


I stood and stared at her face and nothin seemed to come
And then she smiled and that look just licked me like a tongue

Because love comes in spurts for sure
Though sometimes it hurts far more
You just get love in spurts

I held her waist and her wrist and I kissed her in the hair
Forgotten love started pumpin like a fountain inside there

Because love comes in spurts for sure
Though sometimes it hurts far more
You just get love in spurts

Oh darlin love'll come pump in your soul two feet deep
Two minutes later alligators'll chew you in your sleep

Because love comes in spurts for sure
Though sometimes it hurts far more
You just get love in spurts

Oh my honey wipe the tears that streak down your cheek
And don't you think I don't care, you only do cuz you feel weak

Because love comes in spurts for sure
Though sometimes it hurts far more
You just get love in spurts, in spurts, in spurts, in spurts...

She Cracked - The Modern Lovers...

Post  Billy Ruben on Wed Oct 27, 2010 5:26 am

Now this is the Original Modern Lovers,before the John Cale produced and released debut album of 1977.This is the little known Bomp release,far,far,superior and again,the influence of The Velvet Underground is easy to recognise,from the driving bass and lyrics delivered nasally...Brilliant and the best.

John Cale - Guts

Post  Billy Ruben on Wed Oct 27, 2010 5:38 am

...probably better known for his cover of Hallelujah,a song by Leonard Cohen,featured on the movie Shrek,a pioneering sound merchant with La Monte Young's Dream Syndicate,later to compliment the original Velvet Underground line-up,only to be booted by Lou Reed's jealousy and desire for a new direction in sound,hence the VU's third album differing from the first two,later to become a solo artist on the Island record company,this track,guts,comes from his second "Rock" album,Slow Dazzle,the opening line sets the mood for the rest of the song,my favourite "Murder Ballad"...Guts..

The bugger in the short sleeves fucked my wife
Did it quick and split
Back home, fresh as a daisy to Maisy, oh Maisy
And the twelve-bore it stood in the corner
Quite operatic in its self disgust
It blew him all over the living room floor
Like parrot shit, parrot spit, parrot shit was shot
Now suppose it was someone familiar
Someone we all would know
Embarrassing denouement, ne c'est pas?
Familiar hyperbole
And there would go the secret plot
The piss had missed the hole in the pot
Like that ancient teenage dream
From soul to poison soul to poison soul
Guts, guts, got no guts
And stitches don't help at all
Guts, guts, got no guts
Holes in the body, holes in the legs
Holes in the forehead, holes in the head
Holes in the body, holes in the legs
There should never be holes at all
There should never be holes at all
So: kill all you want or more
Make sure, do it right
Dead is dead, and doornails forget
And then you'll notice
How the waster and the wasted
Get to look like one another
In the end, in the end
In the end, in the end
In the end, in the end
In the end, in the end
[top]
Live:


The Original:I can't find,have another live version





...bought this exact album off my old history teacher,when he updated to CD's...
Andy Warhol is Robin und Nico is Batgirl


Fehlen eigentlich nur noch John Cale als Superman und Lou Reed als… Joker? Eher nicht.
...my superheroes...

...Lydon's most important and valid transmission...



a most haunting version from The Old Grey Whistle Test...

POPTONES:
Drive to the forest in a japanese carThe smell of rubber on concrete tarHindsight done me no goodStanding naked in the back of the woodsThe cassette played poptonesI can't forget the impression you madeYou left a hole in the back of my headI don't like hiding in this foliage and peatIt's wet and I'm losing my body heatThe cassette played poptonesThis bleeding heartLooking for bodiesNearly injured my pridePraise picnicking in the British countrysidePoptones

Chant - Public Image Limited

Post  Billy Ruben on Wed Oct 27, 2010 5:55 am

Lyrics to Chant :
Voice moaning in a speaker
Never really get too close
Only a gimmick, pointed fingers
Never more serious sight
Wouldn't waste the effort on entertainment
Out of control, mob running wild
All you ever get is all you steal
Side of London that the tourists never see
Angle ambience

Chant

Don't know why I bother
There's nothing in it for me
The more I see the less I get
The likes of you and me are an embarrassment

Chant

It's not important
It's not worth a mention in the Guardian
Every librarian has its theory
Chant chant angle ambience

Chant
Voice moaning in a speaker
Chant



live version with a very failed interview,God I love Lydon from this era,1978-1980

Swan Lake/Death Disco - PIL

Post  Billy Ruben on Wed Oct 27, 2010 6:16 am



...haunting song about Lydon's mothers death.Mum survived her hip replacement today,lucky neighbours,would've played this at volume for 24hours in respect...


PiL)


Seeing in your eyes

Words can never say the way

Told me in your eyes

Final in a fade


Never no more hope away

Final in a fade

Seeing in your eyes

Seeing in your eyes

Never really know

Never realize


Silence in your eyes

Silence in your eyes

Never really know

Til its gone away

Never realize

The silence in your eyes


Seen it in your eyes

Seen it in your eyes

Never no more hope away

Final in a fade

Watch her slowly die

Saw it in her eyes

Choking on a bed

Flowers rotting dead

seen it in her eyes

Ending in a day

Silence was a way


Seeing in yoru eyes

Seeing in your eyes

Seeing in your eyes

I'm seeing through my eyes

Words cannot express

Words cannot express

Words cannot exp......

Mazzy Star - Blue light

Post  Billy Ruben on Wed Oct 27, 2010 6:20 pm

...Time to focus on women in music.Mazzy Star began as a replacement singer for the band Opel,which morphed into Mazzy Star.The influence and sound of the band,is obvious,which has been a theme in this thread,The Velvet Underground.Mazzy,may not appreciate being found attractive,but no other woman on the planet,has the allure and beauty that she does.Fell in love,with her...and never faded.

Blue Light:
There's a blue light in my best friend's room
There's a blue light in his eyes
There's a blue light, yeah
I wanna see it shine
There's a ship that sails by my window
There's a ship that sails on by
There's a world under it
I think I see it sailing away
I think it's sailing miles
crashing me by
Crashing me by
Crashing me by
There's a world outside my doorstep
Flames over everyone hot
Don't you see them shining
I wanna hear them beating for me
I think I hear them waves
Crashing me by
Crashing me by
Crashing me by






...nothing like dark romance...

Opel - Fell From The Sun...

Post  Billy Ruben on Fri Oct 29, 2010 5:31 am

You fell from my sun
Now youre feeling so cold
Never thought morning
Could feel so alone
They say youve got to live by doing(? )
She says she felt so alone(? )
They say every day is ? ? ?
Like the sun(? )

Staring at cloud
And your rains falling down
Clouds in the sky
And the hills turn around
They say every day youre living
Should feel as though it were the last
They say hold on to that feeling
? ? ?

You fell from my sun
Now youre feeling so cold
Never though morning
Could feel so alone
They say youve got to live by doing
She felt ? ? ?
They say youve got to keep on trying
For the sun
For the sun

The Red Sun Band - Peapod

Post  Billy Ruben on Fri Oct 29, 2010 5:35 am


...bewitching cool....

Lyrics:
I have lived through things unknown
I didn�t not think i'd get home
and here I sit in sweet sunshine
and know all things will pass in time...

I grieve for deaths that haven't happened yet
I watch the garden grow
I have my friends (though few and far between)
I have my friends i've lost

I am a tree roots are my feet
I am a cat that fights
we hope one day we will be free
that day is here take flight

I have a friend who walks with me
he is the first one to be free
he likes to laugh and sing and be with me

The Go Betweens - Cattle And Cane

Post  Billy Ruben on Fri Oct 29, 2010 5:37 am

I recall a schoolboy coming home
Through fields of cane
To a house of tin and timber
And in the sky
A rain of falling cinders
From time to time
The waste memory-wastes
I recall a boy in bigger pants
Like everyone
Just waiting for a chance
His father’s watch
He left it in the showers
From time to time
The waste memory-wastes
I recall a bigger brighter world
A world of books
And silent times in thought
And then the railroad
The railroad takes him home
Through fields of cattle
Through fields of cane
From time to time
The waste memory-wastes
The waste memory-wastes
Further, longer, higher, older

Lisa Germano - A Psychopath

Post  Billy Ruben on Fri Oct 29, 2010 5:41 am



A baseball bat, a baseball bat beside my bed
I'll wait around and wait around, and wait
I hear a noise, I hear a noise, well I hear something
I am alone, you win again, I'm paralyzed
I drift away, I'll drift away, am I asleep yet
I hear a scream, I see me scream, is it from memory
Am I awake, am I alone, when it is sunrise
A baseball bat, a thing of mace
That thing of mace, the thing of mace, where did I leave it
A psychopath, a psychopath, he says he loves me
And I'm alone, and I am cold and paralyzed, I can't move

Kate Bush - Suspended In Gaffa

Post  Billy Ruben on Fri Oct 29, 2010 5:59 am







Out in the garden
There's half of a heaven,
And we're only bluffing.
We're not ones for busting through walls,

But they've told us
Unless we can prove
That we're doing it,
We can't have it all.
(I want it all) *

He's gonna wangle
A way to get out of it.
She's an excuse
And a witness who'll talk when he's called.

But they've told us
Unless we can prove
That we're doing it,
We can't have it all.
(I want it all) *
(I want it all) *
We can't have it all.
(I want it all) *

"I caught a glimpse of a god, all shining and bright."

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud.
It all goes slo-mo.
I don't know why I'm crying.
Am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not 'til I'm ready for you, *
Not 'til I'm ready for you hoo hoo-oo-oo *
Can I have it all.

I try to get nearer,
But as it gets clearer
There's something appears in the way,
It's a plank in me eye,
With a camel
Who's trying to get through it,
Am I doing it?
Can I have it all now?
(I want it all) *

I pull out the plank and say
"Thank ye for yanking me back *
To the fact that there's
Always something to distract."

But sometimes it's hard
To know if I'm doing it right.
Can I have it all now? *
(I want it all) *

Can I have it all now?
(I want it all) *
Can I have it all?
(I want it all) *
I can't have it all. *

"We all have a dream...maybe."

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud.
It all goes slo-mo.
I don't know why I'm crying.
Am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not 'til I'm ready for you,
Not 'til I'm ready for you hoo hoo-oo-oo
Can I have it all.

I won't open boxes
That I am told not to.
I'm not a Pandora.
I'm much more a like a *

That girl in the mirror.
Between you and me
She don't stand a chance of getting anywhere at all.
(I want it all) *
Not anywhere at all
(I want it all)) *
No, not a thing.
(I want it all) *
She can't have it all.

"Mother, where are the angels? I'm scared of the changes."

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud.
It all goes slo-mo.
I don't know why I'm crying.
Am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not 'til I'm ready for you, *
Not 'til I'm ready for you *
Suddenly my feet are feet of mud,
It all goes slo-mo.
I don't know why I'm crying.
Am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not 'til I'm ready for you, *
Not 'til I'm ready for you hoo hoo-oo-oo *
Can I have it all now? *

Kate Bush - Them Heavy People

Post  Billy Ruben on Fri Oct 29, 2010 6:04 am



Rolling the ball, rolling the ball, rolling the ball to me.
Rolling the ball, rolling the ball, rolling the ball to me.

They arrived at an inconvenient time.
I was hiding in a room in my mind.
They made me look at myself. I saw it well.
I'd shut the people out of my life.

So now I take the opportunities:
Wonderful teachers ready to teach me.
I must work on my mind. For now I realise:
Everyone of us has a heaven inside.

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Them heavy people help me.
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Rolling the ball, rolling the ball, rolling the ball to me.

They open doorways that I thought were shut for good.
They read me Gurdjieff and Jesu.
They build up my body, break me emotionally.
It's nearly killing me, but what a lovely feeling!

I love the whirling of the dervishes.
I love the beauty of rare innocence.
You don't need no crystal ball,
Don't fall for a magic wand.
We humans got it all, we perform the miracles.

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Them heavy people help me.
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Rolling the ball, rolling the ball, rolling the ball to me.
Rolling the ball, rolling the ball, rolling the ball to me.
Rolling the ball, rolling the ball...

PJ Harvey...This Is Love

Post  Billy Ruben on Fri Oct 29, 2010 6:11 am



I can't believe that life's so complex
When I just want to sit here and watch you undress
I can't believe that life's so complex
When I just want to sit here and watch you undress

This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love
That I'm feeling

Does it have to be a life full of dread
I wanna chase you round the table, I wanna touch your head
Does it have to be a life full of dread
I wanna chase you round the table, I wanna touch your head

This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love
That I'm feeling

I can't believe that the axis turns on suffering
When you taste so good
I can't believe that the axis turns on suffering
When my head burns

Love, love, love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, love, love
That I'm feeling

Even in the summer
Even in the spring
You can never get too much of
A wonderful thing

You're the only story that I never told
You're my dirty little secret, wanna keep you so
You're the only story that never been told
You're my dirty little secret, wanna keep you so

Come on out, come on over, help me forget
Keep the walls from falling as they're tumbling in
Come on out, come on over, help me forget
Keep the walls from falling on me, tumbling in
Keep the walls from falling as they're tumbling in

This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, love, love
That I'm feeling

...this will have you hard and dripping...
