funtime! cosy pogo! singalong! burlesque in jazz! thirty wibbling and wobbling earworms by spike jones, louis armstrong, hoagy carmichael, the four freshmen, charlie parker and many more!

 
 
and now for something completely different. and no: it's not rare at all. you can find this very fine burlesque in jazz with not all too obscure recordings from 1932 all throughout to 1960 for one euro and 17 cent at discogs, or for even less on the rummage table at your local woolworth market. but it's the ideal companionshipster for a sunny coronated afternoon in splendid isolation at your safe european home or where-ever you see that your grave is kept clean. stay safe and drink alone!

this is not this heat: charles hayward with the radar favourites in 1974 and with quiet sun in 1975 and even with coil later on


before inventing all this praepostpunknoise with this heat in 1978 charles hayward was a very prolific drummer playing with phil manzanera's quiet sun in the early seventies (unfortunately none of their recordings taken before the january 1975 reunion seem to have survived) and playing and recording with the henry cow offspring radar favourites in 1974.


for your listening pleasure i compiled the eponymous radar favourites album recorded in 1974 and produced by michael king for the release on reel recordings in 2010 and the bonustracks that can be found on the 2011 expression records release of the 1975 quiet sun album mainstream (yes, just the bonustracks; i guess you've got the album anyway) and two tracks charles hayward recorded with coil in london sometime between january 1988 and october 1990. you may listen to some of the tracks right here in this post, and you can download the complete compilation way down below.

 
first of all there is the radar favourites album from autumn 1974. we got geoff leigh on reeds, cathy williams on keyboards and singing, g.f. fitz-gerald on guitars, jack monck on bass, and charles hayward on drums.

 
01 - peggy delaney's hothouse tinkers (listen directly)
02 - umbrella walk
03 - trees and tanks (listen directly)
04 - blues for henry
05 - blastest (listen directly)


second of all there is the quiet sun with bill maccormick on bass, phil manzanera on guitars, dave jarrett on keyboards and charles hayward on drums. the album mainstream was recorded and released in 1975, the recording dates of the bonustracks unfortunately are not mentioned.

06 - years of the quiet sun
07 - TROT
08 - R.F.D.
09 - R.F.D. part 1 (listen directly)
 

 
and third of all we got coil from their wonderful album love' secret domain. charles hayward is playing drums on two of their tracks, one of the many links between free jazz, roxy music and throbbing gristle.

 
10 - things happen
11 - love's secret domain (listen directly)

still scorned, dissdorned and sporned: squeeze by the velvet underground


most of the "real" velvet underground fans are way too snobbish to like or even at least accept the wonderful and completely underrated squeeze as the fifth album (or sixth, if you like to count max's kansas city as the fifth album) by the velvet underground. it was recorded by doug yule in london in the fall of 1972 with a little help from deep purple drummer ian paice and some unknown background singers. 
 

for your listening pleasure i augmented and expanded my copy of the semi-legal cd-version of this album with some interrelated bonustracks i found in my collection. you can listen to some of the tracks directly right here, and you can download the complete version as mp3 or flac at the bottom of this post.

06 - wordless
07 - she'll make you cry (listen directly)
08 - friends
09 - send no letter
10 - jack & jane (listen directly)
11 - louise
 
etc:
 

 
the following bonustracks are a compilation of all the doug yule compositions that can be found on the four-cd-box final vu recorded live in london 1971, amsterdam 1971, wales 1972 and boston 1973, featuring maureen tucker, willie alexander, walter powers, rob norris, george kay, mark nauseef, billy yule and don silverman.

enjoy a throbbing gristle with your pets and children: chris carter in the space between

and though this is the man from throbbing gristle (though not THE man nor the NOman nor the woMAN from throbbing gristle but at least the man married to the WOman of throbbing gristle) when this tape was released on industrial records in 1980 no=body seamed to rely=care aboutitt. it is beautiful and wonderbra and a real shock away from the shockshock of throbbing gristle.
 
 
in the meanmeantime and just because noboreday really cared or even bought the tape the original c-90 has become incredival rare; in 1991 chris carter revisited thee/hiss recordings to shrink them to fit on a 76-minute-cd to be released on the grey area, and ass nobbody again did not care alltoomuch even this rerelease got lost and expenisive in the process of growing old.


unfourtunalately you won't get to hear the recordings lost on the c-90 tape unless you sell your car, your house and your fistborne son you may at least listen to my copy of thee revisited version in this=hear=my=blog and you will download and enjoy it or die.
 

so here we go=go!

addendum et postscriptum:

as mentioned above chris carter revisited the 1980 c-90-tape in 1991 to remix, remodel and rename the original tracks; in this process he omitted at least two tracks to create a coumpletely new 76-minute-cd. only a few days after this=here post was published our fellow blogger rex sent me two tracks he found on his version of the tape, as you can read in the comments below. he named them track 01 (3:14) and track 03 (13:33), and confusingly they do not seem to fit into any of the tracklists i found on discogs, but anyway, they are a very welcome addition to the material found on the cd. thank you so much, rex.
