Exotique Shakers

Here's another one of "those mixes," which could provide a suitably sleazy soundtrack for the upcoming New Year's Eve festivities...plenty of pounding drums, squealing saxes, distorted guitars, pulsing organs & grinding rhythms.  Prospero año nuevo, amigos!

Santa Vs. Satan

Watch/download for free via the Internet Archive:

A bizarre flick from Mexico translated by K. Gordon Murray for [US] children's matinees, in which Santa Claus is the envy of the CIA and avoids child labor laws by keeping his slaves in an orbital castle over the North Pole. Currently #44 on IMDB's Bottom 100 of worst films, beating out "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" by a wide margin.

Shake Your Bad Self

Kogar's latest mp3 compilation is now available via the WFMU ICHIBAN blog, as well as KOGAR'S JUNGLE JUICE...34 titillating tracks!  For the cover design, I borrowed an image from a vintage lurid paperback titled "The Mirrored Orgy."

Psychedelic Xmas

The He 5--Korean psychedelic garage band playing Christmas instrumentals--why not?  My personal favorite track is the longish version of "Jingle Bells" which segues into "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (including drum solo).  Unfortunately, a few of the tracks from this vinyl rip end a bit abruptly...and track 3, tagged as "Jingle Bells," is actually "Here Comes Santa Claus."  Still, it's free, and that's probably better than finding a lump of coal in your stocking on Christmas morning, or something...

Kogar's New Trash Show

Now that I've recovered from my computer-meltdown panic (see previous post), allow me to alert you to Kogar the Swinging Ape's latest mad mix...nearly 80 minutes of primitive rock 'n' roll, plus radio spot ads for sleazy film classics!  I designed two different "covers" for the mix.  For the first, I borrowed an image from a TWITCH OF THE DEATH NERVE movie poster...for the second, a montage from CRY BABY KILLER (starring Jack Nicholson, produced by Roger Corman).  The mix is now available for your listening pleasure at the BUZZSAW JOINT Mixcloud page.  Kogar has also posted the mix at the WFMU ICHIBAN blog, along with links to the previous TRASH mixes (volumes #0 & #1).

Technical Difficulties

My trusty old Mac G4 PowerBook seems to have bitten the dust.  Consequently, I probably won't be posting many blog updates in the immediate future.  Also, many of the prints offered here will not be readily available.  Purchases of original art from my Comic Art Collective page (link in my right-hand sidebar) could certainly help expediate my computer's repairs (or the purchase of a new machine!)  Commissions are always welcome.  In any case, I hope to be back up & running again soon...

UPDATE 11/29 - My computer has risen from the dead!  Had to re-install Mac OS X to do it, so a lot of stuff got erased.  Everything vital was backed up, but it's going to take some time to update my software & applications.  More blog posts when I am back up to speed...
