Primitive Sound System at Iris Records for 45 Day - Saturday May 10th

Hello Y'all,
Three minutes.  That is all there should be.  Less is OK too but I can feel it when a 45 is longer than three minutes.  If it goes beyond three and a half it can feel like sitting in a doctor’s office waiting for your turn.  Endless and anxiety filled.  A 7-inch spinning at forty-five can hold up to four minutes of music with little to no sound loss but at three minutes the grooves are comfortably spaced and able to contain and project with the force of fire hose open full throttle.  Whether it is as subtle as a ballad or smashing shit as the grooves leave the speakers of the best Punk can offer a forty-five is the perfect delivery system.  Most forty-fives only contain one amazing song and the “other-side” is not worthy of its better half.  The ones that bring it home on both sides are known as, “two-siders.”  And believe me, there are a lot of them.  Some of my favorites have the vocal on one side and the instrumental version on the other.  Better yet, two different songs and at least one an instrumental.  Sometimes I’ll hear people talk about a song and I have no idea what they are talking about because, despite owning it, I have only listened to the “other” side.  When I get a new 45 I give both sides a proper listen.  I’ll even listen to the “lesser” cut, as many times as I can bear just to make sure I am familiar but unfortunately as the years roll past that inferior cut is lost.  The 7-inch is truly my favorite recorded format. When done properly the sound quality is better and the mix can be hotter and louder.  Many record labels will take advantage of this by doing singles only mixes.

Physically the forty-five is perfect.  There are two basic styles, large hole and small hole. Both styles can be found at 33 1/3 and 45 rpm formats but obviously for it to be a forty-five it must spin at 45 rpms.  The 7-inch forty-five can easily be held in one hand.  You can either grip the edges, if your hands are big enough, like palming a basketball or, in the case of a large-hole-forty-five, you can grip it at the center - through the hole and the outer edge.  This looks cooler and allows for hand gestures while speaking to emphasize how great or how shitty a record is.  LPs seem purpose built for sitting and listening.  That is not to say I don’t bring LPs when I DJ, because I do.  Forty-fives can be cued on the fly and are more forgiving since there usually is not a track preceding or following each cut.  I have chrome forty-five spindles that I like to call, "speed loaders,” since they are pitched at the top and you can practically throw the forty-five at it and it will line itself up as it spins to the slip mat.

I have thousands of forty-fives and I love all of them.  Every time I pull one from a box and play it for someone I usually hear myself say, “Uh, that’s my favorite,” or, “It is impossible for me to pick a top-ten... but if I had to that would be on it… [long pause] …in _ _ _ _ _(insert genre classification here).”  I certainly have no issue with this.  I can care less that I have the longest “Top-Ten List,” ever created.  Ten?  Ten thousand is more like it.

Obviously the music is the most important reason for a record to be my favorite but determining factors can vary greatly following the music.  Sleeve and label design are pretty high on the list of determiners.  Have you ever seen the cover of XTC’s “Senses Working Overtime?”  It is amazing.  This is easily one of my favorite New Wave “Hit Records" but the cover also makes it art.  The front is a simple woodcut of a man’s face with his hands raised in the usual position one takes to play patty-cake.  Normally you would say this position is the universal symbol for, “You got me,” or “I give up,” but his face is not that of a guilty man.  He isn’t smiling in an ear-to-ear fashion but rather looks quite content. The paper stock is a very light gray and all the graphics and lettering are black and white.  The cover is cut and folded in such a way that the record is encased inside forcing you to unfold it to play the record.  From the first panel you open a photo of brightly colored birds with a painfully bright yellow border instantly strikes you.  This is repeated when you fold back the other panel with the hand and ear printed on it.  You can then fold back the mouth and eyes to reveal fish, flowers and fruit as brightly colored as the birds. "SEE - HEAR - SMELL - TOUCH - TASTE”  "1-2-3-4-5, sense working overtime.”  Simple, stunning and brilliant.

Punk Rock and New Wave definitely took the forty-five sleeve from simple images and text to new heights of creativity.  Prior to that many records had sleeves, and some were very creative, but for the most part records either came in a company sleeve or a simple sleeve with no text.  Company sleeves can be beautifully designed.  Some company logos are as impressive as the music contained in the grooves.  The early Epic sleeves combined with the bright yellow paper and black ink used to produce the label is mesmerizing.  In some case the labels had images of the band or even the record company owner.  James Brown included a photo of himself on the label of his Polydor releases.  The image changed as he went through style and fashion changes.  The forty-five format has not changed with styles or trends. It has remained perfect.

Recently Steve at Iris Records in Jersey City told me he was going to add a forty-fives only section.  Let’s just say my senses were working overtime with the thoughts of newly available records to flip through.  To celebrate this new section of his already great store he has asked some local DJs known for their extensive 7-inch collections to spin sets.  I am filling my box with favorites of the format, favorites of different genres and some I just can’t live without.  Come by, enjoy the music and pick up some forty-fives.

- pat.

My brother doesn’t like to go to record shows because for the most part record collectors can be rude and, for lack of a better description, just as rude to your olfactory sense.  Being elbowed, pushed and uncomfortably stared at because you are “taking too long,” to look through a box is definitely an issue.  I enjoy confrontation of this type with humans so I am not so put off but I can definitely understand and agree with his reasoning.  Eilon Paz has done a wonderful thing with his new book, "Dust & Grooves: Adventures In Record Collecting,” he has met with his subjects in their natural habitat without the threat of other collectors to disrupt or even injure them.  The photos capture each subject comfortably in their own space doing what they would most likely be doing 24-7-365 if they had no responsibilities.  Collectors and DJ’s live to purchase, trade, play, stare at, discuss and flip through records. Of course there is a significant amount of ego involved, no different than a hunter and his prized kills stuffed and mounted.  It is that aspect of self where the photos truly show the collectors at their proudest.  The point where these vinyl discs go from an object that delivers sound to a prized object.  Collecting is not about numbers.  This was famously demonstrated in Nick Hornby’s novel, “High Fidelity,” when the main character, Rob, goes on a record buy.  He is greeted by a woman who shows him one box of records; but inside are some of the rarest and most important releases in the history of music.  She wants to give the collection away as punishment for her husband’s infidelity but knowing the genuine value and importance of such a collection Rob refuses to take the box.  One box worth more than most people’s entire collections.  So if not numbers, what makes a collection a collection?  A collection should be a biography of the collector and Eilon illustrates this beautifully throughout the book.  Each room is different and so is the means in which the records are stored and displayed.  Each as different as the collectors themselves.  The book doesn’t end with the photos, it is also filled with extensive interviews and tons of information.  If you love music, record collecting or a good documentary make sure you pick up a copy of this book.

Primitive Sound System at D.C's Tavern February 6, 2014 9PM to Closing featuring the Sub-Brow Art of Bryan Rackleff

Hello Y’all,
Beauty is in the eye-of-the-beholder.  That is as true a cliche as there is.  BUT, this is not true when being critical.  I find this especially true when discussing art and music.  There is no accounting for taste and sadly some people fall far short of knowing how to recognize what is and isn’t good.  It may come as a shock but there really only two kinds of art; good and bad.  To complicate this even further there is “bad” art that is truly amazing.  Bryan Rackleff says he makes scribbles when he gets home late at night.  It may be true that he has thrown a few back with the clock long past yesterday and just hours before sunrise but, these are anything but scribbles.  Believe me, I know scribbles.  I have a child and I have seen all the art parents are so proud of.  "It has a youthful innocence!”  Scribbles.  Bryan’s sub-brow art is a combination of found objects, classic low-brow iconography, flash art and a lot of skeletons and innards.  They are brightly colored and yet look like they may have been drawn sixty years ago.  Lucky for us, they reproduce really well and the dollar store has a shit-load of ready-made frames.  Please join us at the world renowned Gallerie de Classe, located inside high-brow watering hole D.C’s Tavern.  where you not only can study these magnificent blasts of creativity but buy a hand numbered and signed limited edition print… AND WAIT THERE IS MORE… each print comes encased in a shiny finished new frame.  There is no way the Louvre does that!

I will bringing boxes of Punk, Hardcore, 70’s Rock!, 60’s Garage, Surf & Drag, and some Soul and Funk for when people are staggering around drunk but  appear to be dancing.  Your ears will be treated to some of the records I have found during my, “Filling the Gaps,” project.  This includes original releases of The Undertones - “Teenage Kicks,” The Cramps, Buzzcocks “Oh Shit,” The Victims (Plan 9 7-inch re-issue), Skids - “Sweet Suburbia,” Ultravox - “Young Savages,” Urban Waste (7-inch re-issue), Jon & Lee and the Checkmates - “Batman Batusi,” and many more.  I am really excited to play this set of music.

This First Thursday not only features the amazing Cocktails of John Ernst and crew but also the late night scribbles of Bryan Rackleff. The hallowed walls of D.C.'s Tavern's - Gallerie de Classe will be covered in his brightly colored Sub-Brow stylings. Skulls, skeletons, weapons (both musical and deadly), iconography past and present and all things odd-ball and freakish get committed to paper without contemplation.  Bryan has also decided to adorn a limited number of Voodoo candles with his art and has asked Jess Marie a.k.a Zoey Ramone to do hand poked tattoos - http://zoeyramonetattoos.tumblr.com.

I don’t know about you but I am pretty sure D.C.’s is turning into a place I’d like to hang out.  

So, stuff your pockets with cash, buy some art, get a tattoo and drink until whatever you are saying makes sense. Tip the bartenders respect the art and definitely don't feed the DJ.

SEE YA THERE!

Primitive Sound System & DJ SummerLivesOn! at D.C.'s Tavern - 10PM to Closing

Hello Y'all,
It seems like forever since the last time I DJ'd at D.C.'s.  Since the last time I have embarked on a a project: "The Gap Sealer."

I love buying records.  I love looking through records.  And sometimes I love looking through piles and piles of unsorted records for hours without stopping for something to eat, drink or even a bathroom break.  If you walk away someone may find that one record you were looking for.  It is an obsession and could probably be classified as a disease.  Unfortunately, for whatever reason, I have never made or carried around a real want list.  If it was a record I knew about and really wanted I would simply remember it.  This "system," left several gaps in my collection.  But, since I did buy what I like and only kept what I loved; the collection did have an over-all focus.  Like I have said before, every record collection should be a portrait or biography of the owner; I hope my collection is just that.  Despite that, the gaps exist, and sometimes I would fall deep inside them and wonder why they existed.  Some of the gaps were created at a time when I focused on Funk, Soul, R&B and Jazz purchases.  At that point I needed to free up shelf and 45 box space as well as have cash to buy what I wanted.  Most of the Hip Hop 12-inches went as well as a lot of Punk 45s.  My rationalization for selling the 7-inches was that I had LPs by those bands and I could still enjoy their music.  Same for the Hip-Hop but unfortunately I did not have as many LPs to cover all the music I needed to clear out.  To this day my Hip Hop collection is definitely not what it should be.  I have recently re-purchsed some of them but I don't think I will ever be able to get back or afford what I had.

Ironically the Punk records have not increased in value like other genres.  My brother and I were recently joking that it is more Punk to just get the music that inspires you then own it on an OG 45 or LP.  It isn't very Punk to be buying these up now but maybe this is how old Punk and Hardcore kids go through a mid-life crisis.  Regardless of the reasons, the inspiration came when I had the opportunity to go through the sale boxes of my buddy Justin.  Justin is know to the world as - CollectorScum (http://www.collectorscum.com).  It would appear that Justin has more records to sell, than he does in his personal collection.  So his philosophy is, buy collections and rare records for cheap, sell them quickly so that you have deep pockets to buy the rarest of the rare records.  His collection is fucking beautiful.  I have seen hundreds of collections in person and possibly thousands, if you count books and online, and I must say, none of them can compare to the focus, quality and organization of his.  It is inspirational.  It will also make you feel as if you have never looked through a single bin of records in your life… ever.  You would be lucky to recognize, know or own even an eighth of what he has.

Fully inspired and ready to go, I sat down and wrote my first real want list.  Turns out it was surprisingly easy.  First off, I needed to complete my Buzzcocks and The Fall 7-inches which I sold because, as I rationalized, I had them on LP.  It pained me at the time to do it and it kills me to even think about it now.  Buzzcocks is now complete and I need one more Fall record.  I am not a completist, I usually have a year that I cut bands off and that was true for both bands.  This cut-off goes for all bands.  It is no different from saying I love Star Wars, but in my world the last three don't even count, they don't exist.  It is few and far between that bands can rally years after they were no longer relevant.  One such band was Mission of Burma but that is a whole other story.  Next came, Sham 69, Stiff Little Fingers and The Ruts.  I considered these the low hanging fruit so I wasn't surprised to be able to knock them off easily.  There were also items on the list that someone either stole the insert or the insert had gotten lost over the years.  I still have these LPs and 45s so the priority isn't high, but i am tired of saying, "It used to have the insert."  One of those is my Minor Threat "Out Of Step" with the black back cover.  I bought it for $3 in a garage sale when I was in High School.  The insert was a letter sized sheet, later pressings have a larger one.  If you took mine, fuck you!  This goes for my Adolescents LP as well.  If you took that one as well, I will have to kick your ass but gladly I can say that is not replaced. 

Other records on the list are ones that I never came across a copy or heard it and loved it, but never pursued it for one reason or another.  I was explaining to someone recently that before computers, the internet, eBay or Discogs you were pretty much at the mercy of what was available in the bins of your local stores or any store you were lucky enough to go to.  If you didn't get it locally you could contact the label and see if you could get a copy but sometimes you were just plain SOL.   This would include the e.p.s by The Worst and Urban Waste.  I love these records and saw the bands but never bought the records.  In some cases the records were already long gone by the time I found out they even had a record available.  Years passed, tastes change, and I was searching for different records and sounds.  I recently went through my entire collection, carefully trimming the fat.  I called up my friend Jeff who has a shop in Brooklyn (Black Gold Records - http://blackgoldbrooklyn.com) and brought them to him.  With the money he gave me I immediately bought up more records on the list.  I have been trimming and pruning and have some more to bring him.  This project and concept has added a new dimension to collecting and since it is one I never actively pursued it has made it exciting again.

Come by Thursday night and I will be spinning a lot of these old - new finds.  

The past few months I have manned the play-station all by my lonesome, but this month I will be re-joined with DJ SummerLivesOn! - aka Chuck Daly so stop by, drink some booze, tip Larry and GET HIGH! 

- pat.

Open Crates - Final Fridays  - The Dopeness

I am DJing a set of some of my favorite 70's Punk 7-inches at this months Open Crates event.  This one is being held at The Dopeness, a new restaurant in downtown Jersey City.  Due to my schedule this week, I will be spinning the first hour from 6-7.  Green Verde Villaini is also taking an hour plus the usual sets of other people's records spun by the two master minds of Open Crates - Steve Royster and Andres Jimenez.  VINYL RULES! - See you there.
