De Minuut van Ruud (Jaap Aap Show - Media-Mangel, 1989) 
Tuesday, December 26, 2006, 06:53 PM - Fun, Nederlands
Vanochtend zag ik op YouTube een herhaling van de Jaap Aap Show van Andre van Duin bij een of ander Gala met Jos Brink. Dat deed me er aan denken dat bij mij nog een heel stel afleveringen op een plank staan te verpieteren.
Daarom ben ik aan't digitaliseren geslagen en de komende tijd zet ik alle Minuten van Ruud die ik heb on-line.



Voor degene die niet weet waar het over gaat:
Andre van Duin had een programma 'Animal Crackers' waarin hij dieren in de dierentuin stemmen gaf. Daarin kwamen ook apen voor, waarvan 1 een eigen programma kreeg: De Jaap Aap Show. In dat programma was plaats ingeruimd voor minister president Ruud Lubbers: de Minuut van Ruud. Dit waren beelden van toespraken van Lubbers waar Andre van Duin zijn eigen mond in had gemonteerd.
Het was een beetje de Dik Voormekaar show op tv.

Ik geef op deze blog een seintje wanneer alles on-line staat.
Andre van Duin komt binnenkort met een nieuwe serie Animal Crackers op de televisie.

Mr John Dowie - Another Close Shave (1977, UK, weird) 
Monday, December 25, 2006, 06:35 PM - Music, - UK, Fun, English
I saw John Dowie once on a festival. With another guy, they introduced each other as Mr. John Dowie. They did a song called 'Only Men Shave', as opposed to 'Only Women Bleed' which was a hit for Julie Covington at that time.



He hated the Dutch, but I loved him.
Later on he worked a lot together with Neil Innes (Bonzo Dog, Monty Python, Ruttles).

Adrian Munsey - The Lost Sheep (1979, UK, weird) 
Sunday, December 24, 2006, 06:24 PM - Music, - UK, Fun, English
Weird record. It is not clear to me if was meant that way when it was recorded. Adrian still makes melancholy music with his orchestra as you can hear and see on his website.



Somebody posted the video on YouTube. Mr Munsey impersonates his sheep here.
(the original video is removed, so I linked to another version)

The Mad Mystery Sound - It's a Super-Spectacular Day (1979, US, weird) 
Saturday, December 23, 2006, 11:25 PM - Music, - US, Fun, Personal
According to Wikipedia this is a multisided record. Strange name, it is only playable on one side, but it has at least seven grooves. Each groove has it's own version of the same song. They all start the same but the ends are different. Which version you hear depends on where the stylus of your turntable starts. The flexi disc was included in an American edition of Mad magazine in 1980. I digitised the seven versions of the song I could discover on this record.

A Flux in 3d - Divide (NL, 1982, electronic/new wave) 
Thursday, December 21, 2006, 04:35 PM - Music, - NL, English
I think I now have found all the Vinyl flexi-disks I have. I didn't post them all, some are not really worth it. But this one is ok. The singer liked Alan Vega, I suppose. The instruments are sequencers and distorted guitar.



A Flux in 3d came from Nuenen, near Eindhoven and lived in the same house (squat?) as the members of Nasmak.



Milko Bogaard: voice, synthesizer, guitar, tapes
Ankie Keultjes: synthesizer, sequencer
Kevin Kearny: bass, synthesizer

Georges Rodi - Electronic Sounds (FR, electronic) 
Thursday, December 14, 2006, 10:30 PM - Music, - FR, English
Is it Roger Roger? Is it Nino Nardini? No, it's super Georges Rodi!
The Moog Cookbook must have heard this before they started.
All synthesizer with some guitar on Morning Song.
Too good to only be called 'library music'.
Especially Sideral Clock gets an 8 on the White Noise Scale.



I don't know from which year it is, early 70's I suppose.
By the way: the Moog Cookbook has a new cd out, you can listen to it here. And, yes!, they too made a version of Psyche Rock.

Side one:
1 Remembering the Future [2:46]
2 Hell's Angels [3:00]
3 Electronic Sounds [2:53]
4 Western Time [2:44]
5 Peace and Love [2:57]
6 Sideral Clock [3:19]

Side two:
1 Sand Rose [2:59]
2 Indian Love Melody [3:01]
3 Metallic Blues [3:02]
4 Superpositions [2:53]
