In the land of the living dead

BLURT "My Mother was a Friend of an Enemy of the People"

My Moms was here for much of the past week -- was super rad to have her here, and my nephew E. as well. I DJ'ed for Mom last Thursday night, in fact, at Dunes, and thanks to International Pretend To Be Irish By Throwing Up Green Beer On Your Date's Dress Day I guess, hardly anyone was there but my friends and my Mom, while I played with records (it was actually a very clumsy night, be glad you were not there).

Everyone was like "Your Mom is so fucking cool!" And I just replied, "I know!" I'd intended to play this classic by Ted Milton's massively underrated band Blurt, but it was a tad too intense and skronky for the vibe I was laying down, so I backed off on it. I played quite a few gospel "mother" songs and Prince Nico Mbarga's awesome "Sweet Mother" instead. As a groovy coincidence, Brian Turner played this tune on WFMU today (congrats to them for making their fundraising goals). So, here it is for anyone who missed it on Brian's show.

I've heard a lot of good things about Prince Nico Mbarga, and I was wondering if at some point you could post something of his.

Just found this blog thanks to your mention in Blender. Will there ever be another issue of Yeti?

And is there any chance you could post some Screamers plus the Tomata obit that you ran in Yeti?
