Off The Charts
Monday February 15th, 2010 with Chris Ikonomopoulos

Lost and (Never) Found
Custom Floor - Clear Day - 1993 - Analog Records
When We Begin To Steal
...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - S/T - 1997 - Trance Syndicate
R.U. Xperienced ?
Caresse & Sickmob - R.U. Xperienced ? - 1989 - Temple Records / Hyperdelic
A cover of the Jimi's Are You Experienced? put together by Genesis P. Orridge with vocals by his then pre-teen daughter Caresse. It is crazy how this combines an extremely heavy drugged out sound and a song about being drugged out with an eight year old girl delivering the message. So good and creepy. Dubbed out part 2 rounds off side A of this 12" in a good way as well.
I Found A Stranger
Neil Michael Hagerty - S/T - 2001 - Drag City
Zou Zou Mamou
Dr. John - The Sun, Moon and Herbs - 1971 - ATCO
Something Else Again
Richie Havens - Something Else Again - 1968 - MGM
Droge CX9
Manfred Hubler & Siegfried Schwab - Vampyros Lesbos Soundtrack - 1969 / 1995 - Crippled Dick Hot Wax
Seriously mindblowing soundtrack compilation (re?)released in 1995 by the excellent Crippled Dick label. Take just about equal parts fuzz, jazz, go-go, psychedelia, erotica, ethereal vocals, 60s Italian grooves, samba, horror, drugs and funk, put them all together musically for something that is greater than all those influences individually and multiply by a factor greater than 10. Am I exaggerating? I'm listening to the record right now and I think I may not have given it all the credit it deserves!
Counrty Girl
Sugarman 3 - Pure Cane Sugar - 2002 - Daptone
Eddie's Rubber Band
Eddie Bo - Hook and Sling - 1969-ish initial release / Funky Delicacies Re-issue
