IS THE U.S. OR THE WORLD COMING TO AN END?

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 12 April 2014 at

One of two things is likely: Either the US dollar will be abandoned and collapse in value, thus ending Washington’s superpower status and Washington’s threat to world peace, or Washington will lead its puppets into military conflict with Russia and China. By Paul Craig Roberts.

2014 is shaping up as a year of reckoning for the United States.

Two pressures are building on the US dollar. One pressure comes from the Federal Reserve’s declining ability to rig the price of gold as Western gold supplies shrivel and market knowledge of the Fed’s illegal price rigging spreads. The evidence of massive amounts of naked shorts being dumped into the paper gold futures market at times of day when trading is thin is unequivocal. It has become obvious that the price of gold is being rigged in the futures market in order to protect the dollar’s value from QE.

NEIL YOUNG – HOLLYWOOD 2014 (OPENING NIGHT)

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Thursday 10 April 2014 at

NEIL YOUNG
Hollywood 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood, CA; March 29, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Randy Lewis at latimes.com:

It wasn’t a big leap to wonder during Saturday’s opening night of Neil Young’s four-night run of solo acoustic concerts in Hollywood whether Jesus, if he returned to address a modern-day audience, would have to contend with a steady stream of shouts from the back for “Sermon on the Mount!” “Water into wine!” and “Free Bird!” Young fielded a similar barrage of requests (“Cinnamon Girl!” “Down By the River!”) and comments (“You’re the man!”) from the sold-out crowd at the Dolby Theatre good-naturedly. At one point he tacitly acknowledged the tone of almost spiritual pilgrimage in the air by shaking the water out of a harmonica onto folks sitting in the first few rows, a rock ’n’ roll priest anointing his flock. He even shifted into request mode himself after another outburst from fans, mock shouting “The Beatles!” “The Rolling Stoooooones!” “Free Bird!”

FOTHERINGAY (SANDY DENNY) – BBC SESSIONS 1970

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Wednesday 9 April 2014 at

FOTHERINGAY (SANDY DENNY)
BBC Sessions 1970 [no label, 2CD]

Good to very good radio broadcasts.

Sandy Denny (1947-1978) was an English singer and songwriter, perhaps best known as the lead singer for the folk rock band Fairport Convention. She has been described as “the pre-eminent British folk rock singer”. She formed the short-lived band Fotheringay in 1970, releasing one album with them (another unreleased album surfaced over 30 years later), before focusing on a solo career. – wikipedia

Thanks to the person who shared this at Dime.

Uploader’s notes:

Very rare BBC Radio Sessions off air recordings of varying quality April-November 1970. A mixture of AM/FM they are mostly perfectly listenable. No noise reduction applied. Quality of Peace In The End is poor but I know of no better version. Includes interviews with Sandy and those who knew her. Some song titles appear more than once, all are differing versions or broadcasts. These tracks are an invaluable resource to Sandy Denny fans. Some tracks also appear on the boots, Wild Mountain Thyme; Poems From Alexandra; and Sandy At The BBC.

100 BEST NON-FICTION BOOKS OF THE 20th CENTURY (AND BEYOND) IN ENGLISH

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Wednesday 9 April 2014 at

As the clock clicked down on the arrival of the new millennium, Alex and I were bemused at the spate of “100 best of the century lists” pouring forth from the New York Times, the New Yorker, Salon, the Guardian and other liberal publications. The lists were predictable and not many of the entries remained on our groaning shelves. So we decided to compile our own catalogue of the best books written in English and, later translated into English, during the 20th Century. We spent weeks whittling it down to roughly 100 titles for each. These became reading lists for like-minded CounterPunchers and proved two of the most popular pieces we’d ever run on the website, even pricking the interest of many librarians who were forced to confront the gaps in their own collections. - Jeffrey St. Clair

DAD’S ARMY

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Tuesday 8 April 2014 at

Madcap reigns amongst bloodied bodies when the yakuza teams up with an over-enthusiastic filmmaker in Sion Sono’s Why Don’t You Play in Hell? (2013). Stephen Tan reviews.

A man’s gotta do what he’s gotta do – even more so when he’s the head of the yakuza. And even tying up his daughter to ensure she appears in a movie for his incarcerated wife.

Flash back to 10 years earlier. The Kitagawa clan launches an attack on Muto at his home. Fortunately, Muto is celebrating the launching of a new bar for his mistress and Muto’s wife, Shizue, single-handedly takes out three men and leaves Ikegami for dead. The bloody carnage gets Shizue 10 years’ jail; and the perky toothpaste ad featuring her daughter, Michiko, gets yanked off the air.

NEIL YOUNG
Hollywood 2014 (Third Night) [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood, CA; April 1, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to BLG for taping and sharing the tracks at Dime.

BLG noted:

Amazing show and my first time seeing Neil in any form since Bridge in 2001. I did a lot of work lowering the crowd noise between songs, but overall I think the recording came out pretty good. The crowd around me was mostly respectful, although there are a few woos behind me off and on. There were also some idiots who couldn’t figure out where their seats were and an usher sat in the empty seat beside me after Mellow My Mind and asked about five people to hand down their ticket stubs. He was relatively quiet, but you can hear some faint talking.

REMEMBERING KURT COBAIN (1967-1994) – ROMA 1991

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 6 April 2014 at

NIRVANA
Roma 1991 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Il Castello, Roma, Italy; November 19, 1991. Very good FM broadcast.

It’s been 20 years since Kurt Cobain died on April 5, 1994. He was only 27.

The last Nirvana gig took place in Munich, Germany, on March 1, 1994.

Thanks to survivor69 for sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den.

survivor69′s notes:

About a thousand a different versions are available for this set, but most if not all are sourced from the same RAI broadcast by “Planet Rock” from 20 years ago. On the occasion of the recent new remixed or whatever double disc version of Nevermind, Italian radio decided to rebroadcast that gig. This “new” source, if not better than the others, might at least be useful for a matrixing project. WARNING: It’s usual on Italian radio that the DJ speaks a lot in-between songs. And I mean a lot… His/her purpose is to introduce songs with bits of bio and translate what the artists say, or to describe to radio listeners what’s happening on stage. It may gets VERY annoying, and trust me it does, thus we might consider this recording ONLY FOR COMPLETISTS. But the songs, the actual music, are (usually) not spoken over in the middle of them. It has to be noted that Italian DJs are, on the whole, advised to talk that much by the same record companies to prevent bootlegging. But this is anyhow one of the less-spoken-over-broadcast in years…

REMEMBERING KURT COBAIN (1967-1994) – ROMA 1994

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 5 April 2014 at

NIRVANA
Roma 1994 [Kiss The Stone KTS 284, 1CD]

Live at the Palaghiaccio, Rome, Italy; February 22, 1994. Very good to excellent FM broadcast.

It’s been 20 years since Kurt Cobain died on April 5, 1994. He was only 27.

The last Nirvana gig took place in Munich, Germany, on March 1, 1994.

Professor Stone’s liner notes:

Well what can you say? So far 1994 has been pretty rough for Nirvana.

A near fatal accident in Rome has brought out the vultures hungry for a corpse. Well, tough luck suckers, our boy Kurt is still with us and with only a few weeks off to recover, it’s back on the road to continue the “In Utero” European tour. None of this “Eddie’s got a headache, cancel all engagements for the rest of the year”, Kurt nearly dies, but within weeks he’s vowed to be back on the boards.

It is going to take a lot more than this to knock down Nirvana’s wall. Regardless of the relentless media attack Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love and Nirvana are here to stay, like it or not. The “In Utero” album delivered everything it promised and more, Kurt Cobain has proved himself as the first classic songwriter of the nineties if only you would look beneath the headlines.

What a performer chooses to do in the privacy of his own home, or hotel room, is down to him alone and nobody else. The sad thing is that the people who continually cut down Kurt for his choice of personal treatment always hail the Keith Richards of this world as heroes. Talk about double standards. At the end of the day it is the chords that count, not the chemicals. Nirvana make stunning music and have never failed to deliver the goods. It is time that people checked out Kurt’s lyrics and then they might just begin to understand.
