Bukowski, Charles – “Solid Citizen” – [Chinaski]

SlartiBartfast   11/29/2020   A Library, CD

Hamburgh Germany…Charles Bukowski…Live…What could be better! Here is a live reading by Bukowski on the international stage. One of his last. The material the Buk presents in this live performance is some of his best. While drumming out the hum drums of the common human being, he fends off constant heckling from the Hamburgh crowd with the ease of a blur VW bug traveling minstrel. Buyer be ware, this is Bukowski. FCC’s fly like ravens in the wickedly cold fall evenings. Many of which fall outside of the actual reading itself and land like a cold hard curse word that makes it for adults only while others are attempting to contemplate the meaning. I highly suggest any and all FCC free readings.

Big Blood – “Do You Wanna Have a Skeleton Dream?” – [Feeding Tube Records]

SlartiBartfast   11/29/2020   12-inch, A Library

This is Big Blood’s 19th entry into the library and it is as worthy of any other. It starts out with a recording of Colleen Kinsella and Caleb Mulkerin’s daughter at the age of about 3 I’d guess with a 9 second introduction to the album. Quinnisa, Colleen and Caleb’s daughter is about 13-15 at the release of the album and sings lead and backup on many of the tracks as well as, plays guitar, bass, percussion, keyboards and other instruments. Quinnisa certainly compliments her parents creativity and talent, transforming this duo into a true family trio. The LP starts out with a very heavy Motown sound and continues into the dreamy landscape Big Blood is know for. One of my favorites is “Insecure Kids” where Quinnisa sings lead and plays lead guitar. Magical. Are we all not secure deep down……
