“Poetry or Pogrom” – Interview at Erbacce Journal

Not often at all that I even acknowledge poetry (though my first paid work was a poem about concrete and pollution) but it’s even less often that I like the poetry. Even if there is much more to say about that Adorno quote (see “Pantomime Terror” for extended discussion of the paragraphs surrounding, and repetitions of, that quote). Nevertheless, you need to know that “Debasis Mukhopadhyay is a poet from Montreal, Canada. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in journals & anthologies, including Posit, The Curly Mind (UK), Erbacce (UK), Manneqüin.Haüs, Yellow Chair Review, I Am Not A Silent Poet (UK), The New Verse News, Writers Against Prejudice (UK), Rat’s Ass Review : Love & Ensuing Madness, Algebra of Owls, Of/With, Walking Is Still Honest, Leaving My Shadow : A Tribute to Anna Akhmatova, …” … and many more. Check out this link below to an interview with the poet that is worth it for the neglected inner life alone, but is also more…

Enoch Light – Command Records

Poetry and science from Dave.

Ear Conditioning

“Mira ese discos” said Jotti, the proprietor of Aguere Music Shop in La Laguna, as he dropped a few records in front of me.  I’d already put aside a record titled Big Drums in Stereo, so he knew my angle.   Oh shit, that was a good / bad move. I chose one, place the needle to the vinyl and within a second I shouted “So that’s where he got the sample from, that sly motherf…”  I was referring to Carl Craig.  In all these years it never dawned on me to find out where the sample came from that he used for his seminal ‘Bug in the Bassbin’.

Everything about the records recorded and produced by Enoch Light is premium.  The package, his dedication the getting the right sound during the recording process, everything. I bagged about four discs and promised to return as soon as the next cheque was…
