Performances in February and March 2011. Held in conjunction with the exhibition Andy Warhol: Motion Pictures

 

 

There’s one thing I know for sure; Hahn-Bin looks like Andy Warhol.

Yeah. White bohemian hipsters.

 

 

At the present day, we have bands like Celebration ( from Baltimore) mining the same field. While I’m not quite fond of their music, I find the front woman very hot.

 

 

nom; Use Your Illusion

Posted in boys, music by okkame on August 14, 2011

I have imbibed a nirvanic dose of defiant underground shrills and screeches only to come back to Guns N’ Roses, my primer into the humongous world of Rock N’ Roll in a perceptively sober state without a smidgen of irony. They’re the greatest.

 

 

 

GONNA FIND A WAY TO CURE THIS LONELINESS
YEAH I’LL FIND A WAY TO CURE THIS PAIN
IF I SAID THAT YOU’RE MY FRIEND
AND OUR LOVE WOULD NEVER END
HOW LONG BEFORE I HAD YOUR TRUST AGAIN
I OPENED UP THE DOORS WHEN IT WAS COLD OUTSIDE
HOPIN’ THAT YOU’D FIND YOUR OWN WAY IN
BUT HOW CAN I PROTECT YOU
OR TRY NOT TO NEGLECT YOU
WHEN YOU WON’T TAKE THE LOVE I HAVE TO GIVE
I BROUGHT ME AN ILLUSION
AN I PUT IT ON THE WALL
I LET IT FILL MY HEAD WITH DREAMS
AND I HAD TO HAVE THEM ALL
BUT OH THE TASTE IS NEVER SO SWEET
AS WHAT YOU’D BELIEVE IT IS…
WELL I GUESS IT NEVER IS
IT’S THESE PREJUDICED ILLUSIONS
THAT PUMP THE BLOOD
TO THE HEART OF THE BIZ

YOU KNOW THAT I NEVER THOUGHT
THAT IT COULD TAKE SO LONG
YOU KNOW I NEVER KNEW HOW TO BE STRONG
YEAH, I LET YOU SHAPE ME
BUT I FEEL AS THOUGH YOU RAPED ME
‘CAUSE YOU CLIMBED INSIDE MY WORLD
AND IN MY SONGS
SO NOW I’VE CLOSED THE DOOR
TO KEEP THE COLD OUTSIDE
SEEMS SOMEHOW I’VE FOUND THE WILL TO LIVE
BUT HOW CAN I FORGET YOU
OR TRY NOT TO REJECT YOU
WHEN WE BOTH KNOW IT TAKES TIME TO FORGIVE

SWEETNESS IS A VIRTUE
AND YOU LOST YOUR VIRTUE LONG AGO
YOU KNOW I’D LIKE TO HURT YOU
BUT MY CONSCIENCE ALWAYS TELLS ME NO
YOU COULD SELL YOUR BODY ON THE STREET
TO ANYONE WHOM YOU MIGHT MEET
WHO’D LOVE TO TRY AND GET INSIDE
AND BUST YOUR INNOCENCE OPEN WIDE

‘CAUSE MY BABY’S GOT A LOCOMOTIVE
MY BABY’S GONE OFF THE TRACK
MY BABY’S GOT A LOCOMOTIVE
GOT TA PEEL THE BITCH OFF MY BACK
I KNOW IT LOOKS LIKE I’M INSANE
TAKE A CLOSER LOOK I’M NOT TO BLAME
NO

GONNA HAVE SOME FUN WITH MY FRUSTRATION
GONNA WATCH THE BIG SCREEN IN MY HEAD
I’D RATHER TAKE A DETOUR
‘CAUSE THIS ROAD AIN’T GETTIN’ CLEARER
YOUR TRAIN OF THOUGHT HAS CUT ME OFF AGAIN
BETTER TAME THAT BOY ‘CAUSE HE’S A WILD ONE
BETTER TAME THAT BOY FOR HE’S A MAN
SWEETHEART DON’T MAKE ME LAUGH
YOU’S GETTIN’ TOO BIG FOR YOUR PANTS
AND I’S THINK MAYBE YOU SHOULD
CUT OUT WHILE YOU CAN
YOU CAN USE YOUR ILLUSION
LET IT TAKE YOU WHERE IT MAY
WE LIVE AND LEARN
AND THEN SOMETIMES IT’S BEST TO WALK AWAY
ME I’M JUST HERE HANGIN’ ON
IT’S MY ONLY PLACE TO STAY AT LEAST
FOR NOW ANYWAY
I’VE WORKED TOO HARD FOR MY ILLUSIONS
JUST TO THROW THEM ALL AWAY

I’M TAKING TIME FOR QUIET CONSOLATION
IN PASSING BY THIS LOVE THAT’S PASSED AWAY
I KNOW IT’S NEVER EASY –
SO WHY SHOULD YOU BELIEVE ME
WHEN I’VE ALWAYS GOT SO MANY THINGS TO SAY
CALLING OFF THE DOGS A SIMPLE CHOICE IS MADE
‘CAUSE PLAYFUL HEARTS
CAN SOMETIMES BE ENRAGED
YOU KNOW I TRIED TO WAKE YOU –
I MEAN HOW LONG COULD IT TAKE YOU
TO OPEN UP YOUR EYES AND TURN THE PAGE

KINDNESS IS A TREASURE –
AND IT’S ONE TO ME YOU’VE SELDOM SHOWN
SO I’LL SAY IT FOR GOOD MEASURE
TO ALL THE ONES LIKE YOU I’VE KNOWN
YA KNOW I’D LIKE TO SHAVE YOUR HEAD
AND ALL MY FRIENDS COULD PAINT IT RED
‘CAUSE LOVE TO ME’S A TWO WAY STREET
AN ALL I REALLY WANT IS PEACE

BUT MY BABY’S GOT A LOCOMOTIVE
MY BABY’S GONE OFF THE TRACK
MY BABY’S GOT A LOCOMOTIVE
GOT TA PEEL THE BITCH OFF MY BACK
I KNOW IT LOOKS LIKE I’M INSANE
TAKE A CLOSER LOOK I’M NOT TO BLAME
NO

AFFECTION IS A BLESSING
CAN YOU FIND IT IN YOUR TORRID HEART
I TRIED TO KEEP THIS THING TA-GETHER
BUT THE TREMOR TORE MY PAD APART
YEAH I KNOW IT’S HARD TO FACE
WHEN ALL WE’VE WORKED FOR’S GONE TO WASTE
BUT YOU’RE SUCH A STUPID WOMAN
AND I’M SUCH A STUPID MAN
BUT LOVE LIKE TIME’S GOT IT’S OWN PLANS

‘CAUSE MY BABY’S GOT A LOCOMOTIVE
MY BABY’S GONE OFF THE TRACK
MY BABY’S GOT A LOCOMOTIVE
GOT TA PEEL THE BITCH OFF MY BACK
I KNOW IT LOOKS LIKE I’M INSANE
TAKE A CLOSER LOOK I’M NOT TO BLAME
YEAH
IF LOVE IS BLIND I GUESS I’LL BUY MYSELF A CANE

LOVE’S SO STRANGE

Who’d get it thoroughly if I say “I love music, mostly rock n’ roll. And my favourtie band is Guns N’ fucking Roses” except for ones reading my blog? I couldn’t even articulate the differences between Bon Jovi and Guns N’ Roses to my friend yesterday. Blues-oriented and often irresistibly poppy but innovative, cleverly comprehensive and  truly artsy when you dig them deeper aren’t not enough. Suffice it to say that Guns N’ Roses liberate you !!!

Samantha Davies & Matthew Bower of Skullflower invoking God.

 

 

 

 

These gruesome twosome built Voltigeurs, yet another sacellum for them to practise the black art. Voltigeurs’  amorous and voluptuous properties contribute to small differences from Skullflower and for a period of time, they even take the shape of a woman casting auroral lust all over the blackened mind.

 

 

Some tracks on the album have the following names.

 

Archon:

Archon (Gr. ἄρχων, pl. ἄρχοντες) is a Greek word that means “ruler” or “lord”, frequently used as the title of a specific public office. It is the masculine present participle of the verb stem ἀρχ-, meaning “to rule”, derived from the same root as monarchhierarchy and anarchy.

 

Lamia:

The Lamia: In this 1909 painting by Herbert James Draper, Lamia has human legs and a snakeskin around her waist. There is also a small snake on her right forearm.

 

In ancient Greek mythologyLamia (Greek: Λάμια) was a beautiful queen of Libya who became a child-eating daemonAristophanes claimed her name derived from the Greek word for gullet (λαιμός; laimos), referring to her habit of devouring children.

Some accounts say she has a serpent’s tail below the waist. This popular description of her is largely due to Lamia, a poem by John Keats published in 1819.[3] Antoninus Liberalis uses Lamia as an alternate name for the serpentine drakaina Sybaris. However, Diodorus Siculus describes her as having nothing more than a distorted face.

Later traditions referred to many lamiae; these were folkloric monsters similar to vampires and succubi that seduced young men and then fed on their blood.

 

Yesod:

The sephirah of Yesod translates spiritual concepts into actions that unite us with God.

It is often associated with the Moon, because it is the sphere which reflects the light of all the other sephirot into Malkuth, and it is associated with the sexual organs, because it is here that the higher spheres connect to the earth.

It plays the role of collecting and balancing the different and opposing energies of Hod and Netzach, and also from Tiphereth above it, storing and distributing it throughout the world. It is likened to the ‘engine-room’ of creation.

The archangel of this sphere is Gabriel, and the Cherubim is the Angelic order.

 

Cybelle (They got her from fucking Marvel comics  as if to demystify themselves !):

 Cybelle’s powers allow her to secrete a fast-acting acidic sweat from her pores. This mist dissolved any form of matter it came into contact with, including solid stone. Cybelle was slain by Harpoon, a member of the superhuman team of assassins known as the Marauders, during the villains’ massacre of the Morlock community.

Various: Ambient 4: Isolationism (1994, Virgin)

Posted in music by okkame on August 11, 2011

 

 

In the course of my renewed pilgrimage to Matthew Bower’s hypogeal halidom, I tripped over this compilation and thought it appropriate to adorn the already formidable wall of this hipster hall of fame with the album’s ambient ominousness. Hipsters do enjoy this sort of stuff. You’ll get the same answer from  employees at any worthy record store in NYC or in any other big cites all over the world alive with knowledgeable hepsters which are the direct opposite of Seoul, Korea, the last spiritless bastion of all things square ….. Screw all the grisly Bon Iver crap and those incorrigible Korean indiecretins.

 

Ambient 4: Isolationism is a 1994 compilation album released on the Virgin Records label, part of itsAmbient series. The compilation was issued as a double CD, packaged in a slimline case. It features liner notes by Kevin Martin of the Bug.

From the above passworded blog;

 

“In August of 1994, Virgin Recordsreleased the fourth and final volume in their definitive A Brief History of Ambient series. As things were starting to get a bit stale with the third volume, Virgin changed course, reaching beyond their own labels to widen the scope for this two-disc set. Focusing on the burgeoning Isolationism sub-genre, Virgin was able to license and compile a collection of exclusive tracks for this last blast. They also shortened the title this time around, omitting the A Brief History of part.

This compilation is the first major label release of this darker breed of ambient music. Most of the original indie electronic artists that pioneered this mid-90s musical variant are featured here. Stylistically, the ambient music that Brian Eno created in the 1970s was unique in that it was designed to work also as a passive experience; you could listen to it closely or let it play in the background as a non-distraction. Conversely, as this title’s producer, musician Kevin Martin, put it when he coined the term, Isolationism is designed to “push away” the listener. This repulsive effect manifests itself in music that, surprisingly, covers a wide variety of attack approaches. Personally, the only similarity I find in these disparate pieces is the gloomy tone that sits at their core. Don’t get me wrong, it’s all quite enjoyable, but is maybe best enjoyed in smaller doses. Regardless, this is the perfect instrumental electronica to listen to on a dreary day. Particularly if your goal is not to cheer yourself up.”

Gunn, you blueblooded cowboy, what were you gunning at when I was still there to marvel at your epic travelogue?  But I can forgive you now that through the mirror of the perfect past you got to me at last. You wrangle my stray heart and cast it loose on the seedy backalleys of NYC … to the psychic canal of Takoma … to the scenic ridge of Appalachian Mountains … to a ruddy moor in Texas … to a desert village in India, and finally give it back to the wailing hollow of my body. You’ve done well.

Circuit Des Yeux – 3311

Posted in girls, music by okkame on August 9, 2011

Circuit Des Yeux; pondering over the recent hype of  EMA

 

 

 

 

In this clip, Circuit Des Yeux presents a modern day ballad resonating with near-ecclesiastical passion and patinated remorse which well conveys her dramatic growth and newfound maturity. And even more startling is that she’s only 21 years old – am I misinformed on this? Her new record, which might be a haunting package of American Suburbania, should prove this daunting boxroom experimentalist’s prizewinning Karaokewomanship and lay open the widened mental vista she now conjures up and dwells in – the same kind of emotive surprise that was given by U.S. Girls lately.  Circuit Des Yeux’s carefully moving you to yen sleep.
