WEIRD HALL AND OATES VIDEO

I've never been a huge Hall & Oates fan, but that's not why I love this video.  I love it because it's terrible, and because they apparently made it that way on purpose.  Some local TV show in Atlantic City invited them to lip synch this song, but they didn't want to do that.  Instead, they decided to put together this early (1973) "music video".  Daryl Hall doesn't even bother to move his lips half the time, they both look stoned, and they literally act out parts of the lyrics.  The show never aired the clip, but thank goodness for the interwebs.

Trivia:  The woman walking across the screen is Sarah, aka Sarah Smile, and the Devil is played by their road manager.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN PEEL


My guess is you have heard of this fella before, or at the very least you have seen Peel Sessions in the past and put 2 + 2 together. He was perhaps the best DJ out there, breaking radio taboos, introducing unknown musicians to the world, and only playing the music he loved. There is a great web site that has been set up after his death where you can peruse John Peel's massive record collection. There are a number of other great links there too - it is well worth spending some free time there. Here is the link to John Peel's Record Archive.

GRIND-FU RETURNS THIS SATURDAY!


GRIND-FU CINEMA IS BACK
With our first ever
NOIR DOUBLE FEATURE!

D.O.A  and  DETOUR

Saturday, August 25th @ 7:00pm
Wiecking 220 Auditorium
on the campus of
Minnesota State University, Mankato

FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE!

We've kicked the tires, adjusted the brightness and tweaked the gear, and it looks like Grind-Fu Cinema is ready for Public Domain movie supremacy!  This month we're showing our first Film Noir movies.  Both are high in atmosphere and suspense, so be ready to sit on the edge of your seat, cuz that's all you'll need!


DETOUR - 1945
Not only is Detour a great Film Noir, it also holds the distinction of being archived in the National Film Registry!  I do believe that is a first for any Grind-Fu film.  This is a real poverty row production that succeeds despite its budgetary limitations.  Roger Ebert said it is "... haunting and creepy, an embodiment of the guilty soul of film noir.  No one who has seen it has easily forgotten it."


D.O.A. - 1950
D.O.A. is regarded as a classic of the Film Noir genre.  It follows a man on a quest to find out who murdered him.  Yeah.  See it and find out how that works!  It's a great film.



Join us on Saturday, August 25th @ 7:00pm for our first ever Film Noir double feature!  Drop us an e-mail at shufflefunction@hotmail.com if you have any questions.

I'm the new boy in town!  Where can I go?

Feel free to share this post on your facebook page or pass it along to other music geeks in your life. The more cards that arrive in The Legendary Stardust's Cowboy's mailbox the better. Hearing from his fans always makes him happy, and that is all that we are asking.

JANDEK STUDY GROUP THURSDAY NIGHT!


JANDEK STUDY GROUP IV
listens to
YOU WALK ALONE

Thursday, August 23rd @ 7:00pm
Minnemishinona Falls
Judson Bottom Road, Country Road 14

The next meeting of the Jandek Study Group is coming up soon!  We will be listening to You Walk Alone, which is arguably his best and most accessible album.  This is the album that you could pull songs from for a mix if you don't want to scare people off.  There are some beautiful moments throughout You Walk Alone, as well as some of the most delicate guitar playing in the entire Jandek catalog.

We will be listening at Minnemishinona Falls, which seems ideal for the tone of the album.  It's a sort of obscure location (which seems appropriate) but it isn't difficult to find.  If you are on Lookout Drive, turn onto Judson Bottom Road and drive three miles.  It's right there on your left.  There may not be water pouring over the falls, but the setting is gonna be right for the music.

If you have any questions about the album or where we are meeting, drop us a line and we'll be glad to help.

DON'T FORGET!  JANDEK TICKETS
GO ON SALE ON AUGUST 28TH!
Stay tuned to this blog for additional details!


IN CASE OF RAIN:


If the Radio Gods are moody Thursday night and decide to make it rain - we have a back up plan. Please meet with us at KMSU. We will listen to You Walk Alone in the comforts of a dry and comfy radio station. You can park in the Alumni Foundation Building back parking lot. Fingers crossed this won't be the case!

JANDEK ON SALE IN ONE WEEK!

Tickets go on sale ONE WEEK FROM TODAY for Jandek!  Beginning at 12:00am Tuesday, August 28th, you can get tickets for this historic Minnesota appearance.  Seating is very limited, so please don't hesitate if you are considering going.  This is a one of a kind performance, and it is sure to be talked about for years to come.  There has been interest rolling in from around the state and country, and it would be a beautiful thing to have lots of tickets going to KMSU listeners!

This evenings performance will include a group of regional musicians:  Charles Gillett (electric guitar), Craig B. Mataresse (electric bass), Adam Patterson (drums, percussion) and Brian DeGayner (brass).  The Representative from Corwood Industries will be playing piano.

We're pretty thrilled that The Rep will be playing piano for this performance.  He played piano when we saw Jandek play at Grinell in 2007, and it sounded wonderful.  It will surprise you.  Here are some examples:



This is going to be a fantastic show.  Don't miss this rare opporunity to see one of the most mysterious and engimatic performers in contemporary music!

WATTSTAX TURNS 40 ON MONDAY - AND WE ARE CELEBRATING ON SHUFFLE FUNCTION

If you are even a casual listener of Shuffle Function, you know that I have a musical equivalent of a crush on Stax Records. Tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of WattStax. This is hands down one of the most amazing concerts ever held, and the film captures all of it - even the musicians who were not there!!


I am going to mark this historic occasion on Monday's  Shuffle Function morning show by only playing music from WattStax. What does that mean for you, faithfull listener? Well, trust me on this, you are not going to mind it one bit!



I am looking forward to this. I hope you tune in and become Stax fanatics too. You will be in good company. I'll see you in the morning!

PARANORMAN IS ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR


I went to Paranorman tonight and it was honestly one of the best movies I've seen all year.  It is REALLY funny and creepy, and it has tons of heart.  The stop-motion animation is some of the best I've seen, and the 3D is fantastic.  Seriously, you'll be missing an experience if you don't see this in 3D.  The film looks wondeful.

If you are thinking of taking a younger child to it, I'd consider that there are a couple of scenes that are pretty scary.  Wizard of Oz grade scary.  But over all the film is so entertaining and fun that those moments should be pretty easy to handle.

Paranorman is SUCH a Halloween movie, so it's kind of strange that it's opening in mid-August.  I figure they don't want to compete with Frankenweenie, which is coming out October 5th.  I'm a big fan of Tim Burton's original Frankenweenie short film, so I'm dying to see how the stop-motion version compares.

Here's the original Frankenweenie film from 1984:


Shyboy

BONUS STOP-MOTION: Tim Burton's Vincent!

THE ADVENTURES OF THE SON OF EXPLODING SAUSAGE

Or how I learned to stop worrying and love The Bonzos!


I just saw this posted over at Dangerous Minds. The Adventures of the Son of Exploding Sausage is a short film the Bonzo Dog Band made in 1969. It just sort of them hanging out with kids and being very... Bonzo-ish. It's entertaining surreal stuff.

JANDEK SEVEN YEARS AGO


I was digging around on the interwebs today to see what folks were saying about the upcoming Jandek show, and I stumbled across this thing I wrote on the blog in 2005.  It's funny how much things have changed in the past seven years.

JANDEK?  JANDEK JANDEK JANDEK!
January 2005

Jandek. I have a difficult relationship with the music produced by Jandek. It has been described as the music equivalent of being awake for two days straight and having the feeling that your nerves are frayed. I'd say that's a pretty accurate description and yet it doesn't even begin to prepare you for the sounds of Jandek. I had read and heard quite a bit about the man and his music, and I was still caught off guard. You can try and compare it to other music, but the only thing you can compare Jandek to is Jandek. There are people who try to sound like Jandek, but NOBODY sounds like Jandek. I question whether that is even possible to replicate the sounds of Jandek with honesty.

Despite my best efforts, I have yet to embrace Jandek's art. It has been said that if you don't get Jandek at first listen that you never will get it. I hope that's not the case. I try and try to absorb his music, but so far every attempt has been futile. So why, you may ask, do I keep trying? Where to begin...

Jandek has been putting music out for roughly 25 years, releasing 39 albums to date. Four of those came out within the last year. Somehow, despite this constant and determined output of music, he has remained completely enigmatic and anonymous. Nobody truly knows anything at all about the man. The main form of contact with him is through a p.o. box for his record label, Corwood Industries. If you write them you get a typed list of available Jandek music. If you are lucky you may get a handwritten response to inquiries made, but typically no interviews are granted by Jandek.

There was one actual phone interview done by John Trubee for Spin Magazine in 1986 (audio of which is on the DVD Jandek On Corwood. More on that in a bit.) and Jandek did give out some information about himself, but after that interview the doors closed. Occasionally people would make contact and Jandek would call or write with more than the standard single sentence. Those contacts are usually noteworthy within the Jandek circle of listeners as they seem to be fairly rare, and any honest to goodness contact with a man who is a virtual ghost is bound to raise interest.

Despite all this, this past October a man assumed to be Jandek (but only referred to as a representative of Corwood Industries) played his first ever live show at a music festival in Glasgow, Scotland. This news was both exciting and puzzling. Why now, after all these years, did he decide to perform in public? Thank goodness for bootleggers, because somebody had the wits to tape the performance. It is floating around in the shadowy world of P2P. What's even more remarkable is that after all these years of recording music alone, despite the occasional guest appearance of unknown persons, he performed live with two other musicians. How did he hook up with them? Did they know him before the show?

It's a friggin' riddle, and it sucks me in every time. I cannot resist the mystery of Jandek, no matter how difficult his music is.

Recently the DVD for Jandek On Corwood came out. In it there are interviews with music critics, fans, and people who have had contact with Jandek, and the only thing that they are sure of is that nobody knows anything about Jandek. Everybody speculates about him, but nobody really knows him. On the disc you can hear the full recording of John Trubee's interview with Jandek, and as of this writing it appears to be the only known recording of Jandek speaking. Beyond that, the people who appear dissect the man, the myth, and the music.

All of this means that I'm once again sucked in. Big time.

The thing that troubles me is that after I watched the documentary a few times, listened to the full Trubee interview, and we played Jandek's music on the show, I had a night of dreams where I met Jandek. I don't remember any of what he said (which, I suppose, is fitting) but I know that after every dream I woke up with this feeling that I'm not meant to be involved with Jandek. I felt like the dreams meant I should stay away. I don't really get sucked into dream analysis or any of that stuff, but it was hard to ignore the feeling.

So the next day I sent a letter off to Corwood inquiring about purchasing every recording Jandek has released.

How am I supposed to ignore something that triggers such a strong reaction? How?

Shyboy

P.S.: There's an excellent quote in the Jandek documentary that pretty much sums it all up: If you are willing to open the door without looking through the peep-hole, then you are ready for Jandek.



I  don't remember those dreams at all, but I have gone full on completist, that's for sure.  Good thing I didn't stick with that feeling that I'm not supposed to be involved with him!

REASON TO GO TO GRIND-FU: ANN SAVAGE


I just watched Detour last night to make sure everything was ready for Grind-Fu on the 25th, and I was knocked on my butt by one of those performances that will leave the audience stunned.  Like Arch Hall Jr. in The Sadist stunned.  Ann Savage's performance as Vera is a special kind of intense.  If Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction and Gena Rowlands in A Woman Under The Influence had a baby, it would be Ann Savage in Detour.  This is the stuff nightmares are made of. In fact, in 2007 Time magazine called her performance of Vera one of the top ten movie villains of all time, and Wim Wenders said her performance was 30 years ahead of its time.  True stuff.

JANDEK STUDY GROUP IV: YOU WALK ALONE



JANDEK STUDY GROUP IV
listens to
YOU WALK ALONE

Thursday, August 23rd @ 7:00pm
Minnemishinona Falls
Judson Bottom Road, Country Road 14

The next meeting of the Jandek Study Group is coming up soon!  We will be listening to You Walk Alone, which is arguably his best and most accessible album.  This is the album that you could pull songs from for a mix if you don't want to scare people off.  There are some beautiful moments throughout You Walk Alone, as well as some of the most delicate guitar playing in the entire Jandek catalog.

We will be listening at Minnemishinona Falls, which seems ideal for the tone of the album.  It's a sort of obscure location (which seems appropriate) but it isn't difficult to find.  If you are on Lookout Drive, turn onto Judson Bottom Road and drive three miles.  It's right there on your left.  There may not be water pouring over the falls, but the setting is gonna be right for the music.

If you have any questions about the album or where we are meeting, drop us a line and we'll be glad to help.

DON'T FORGET!  JANDEK TICKETS
GO ON SALE ON AUGUST 28TH!
Stay tuned to this blog for additional details!

AUGUST 25th: GRIND-FU RETURNS!


GRIND-FU CINEMA IS BACK
With our first ever
NOIR DOUBLE FEATURE!

D.O.A  and  DETOUR

Saturday, August 25th @ 7:00pm
Wiecking 220 Auditorium
on the campus of
Minnesota State University, Mankato

FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE!

We've kicked the tires, adjusted the brightness and tweaked the gear, and it looks like Grind-Fu Cinema is ready for Public Domain movie supremacy!  This month we're showing our first Film Noir movies.  Both are high in atmosphere and suspense, so be ready to sit on the edge of your seat, cuz that's all you'll need!


DETOUR - 1945
Not only is Detour a great Film Noir, it also holds the distinction of being archived in the National Film Registry!  I do believe that is a first for any Grind-Fu film.  This is a real poverty row production that succeeds despite its budgetary limitations.  Roger Ebert said it is "... haunting and creepy, an embodiment of the guilty soul of film noir.  No one who has seen it has easily forgotten it."


D.O.A. - 1950
D.O.A. is regarded as a classic of the Film Noir genre.  It follows a man on a quest to find out who murdered him.  Yeah.  See it and find out how that works!  It's a great film.



Join us on Saturday, August 25th @ 7:00pm for our first ever Film Noir double feature!  Drop us an e-mail at shufflefunction@hotmail.com if you have any questions.


I'm the new boy in town!  Where can I go?
