The whole period was so exciting on every level, art, music and the Album) of making a political difference. I remember the Bush Tetras because they were all ladies except the drummer and they were so strong up there, so rhythmic and complex, yet funny and campy and beautiful. I gotta say Chrissie Hynde live in was a shock. And all my little friends from kindergarden were making a lot of good noise at Dischord. I was involved with positive force the punk political group so it was a fun time in my life and very formative of who I am today.
There are a lot of cool riffs and phrases floating around on unmarked cassettes near a great deal of cat hair. Then I fill it in with my experience using the mood of the sound to coax some kind of memory out that I can then chip away at and mold.
Like the fine clay of southern Tuscany ripened by the august sun, dripping with golden relevance, etc…. Do you listen to your own music with a critical ear, or is it possible to lose yourself in it?
I think my California Oregon - Lida Husik - Bozo (Vinyl is very of its time. The electronic stuff of course, and the messiness of the lo-fi indie sound, that would have been swallowed up in the sixties or seventies.
But it seems to me that you manage to integrate your themes very subtly and carefully. I mean, it must be scary being so close to it all. Being subtle in the music is actually really hard. I write more and more lately. Judge Judy. I actually saw her ridicule hilary clinton on a talk show. It feels kinda bloodthirsty.
But the situations are so dumb and the people are soooooo dumb it sorta explains a lot about how our country got the way it is now. I also got that cd by the Thai Elephant Orchestra. I used to have it on cassette and lost it. The songs that follow are some of my favorites. But honestly, having to choose was almost impossible! On September 18, It is by turns quiet and poetic, furious and tense. Their second album, Cannery Hours [Say Hey], is equally LP, building on similar timeless, enigmatic lyrical concerns and playful sense of sonic experimentation.
Musically, the band paints in watercolors —sometimes in broad, dusky swathes, sometimes with bright, pointillist delicacy. Loosely speaking, The Occasion traffic in a kind of pastoral psychedelia. Psychedelia is, at heart, about freeing music from earthbound California Oregon - Lida Husik - Bozo (Vinyl, and in turn invoking a trance-like state in the listener.
Songs often begin with undulating, gentle waves of sound, lulling you into a false sense of complacency, only to stun you with distortion and rumbling basslines. They manage to incorporate three singers —Brent Cordero vocals, Rhodes pianoCharles Burst vocals, drumsand Jordi Wheeler vocals, guitar — without compromising individual songwriting styles.
Both shows were impressive in different ways, The first because the band took their limited time and ran with it, giving us a concise set that never once let up in intensity. Seeing them a little over a month later at the Middle East, it was clear that touring with loose-limbed collective Acid Mothers Temple had liberated the band in some crucial ways.
Songs that were organic to begin with became even more freeform, ebbing and flowing with a newfound confidence and innate sense of trust.
That, and they seemed to be having a lot more fun. Or over at Beekiller.
