Rock and Roll

Sladists are media maniacs...I mean lovers. Movies, Books, Music & Sports are all here.

was anyone feeling like they need to see a classic film turned into a music video? here's Vanishing Point mixed in with Audioslave's Show Me How To Live

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVXIK1xCRpY

hope you guys enjoy it I know I enjoyed listening to some good rock Cornell's voice is so darn good I can sound like him at times. I know this how I feel right now when my birthday is tomorrow and I will be 19 years old I need someone to show me the path and show me how to live as an adult I cant go driving a 1970 Challenger R/T into the middle of the desert after crashing a few cop vehicles and destroying a perfectly mint 1969 Jaguar E-Type, then trying to defy gravity by not crashing into two bulldozers that have blocked the street into Cisco.

Now I suppose some of you are thinking, "What gives with Slade? Why are we going through this retrospective of Old Time music, for some reason spinning off from the Pop hit "Corinna, Corinna" by Ray Peterson in 1960?
It's a long way from that to AC/DC's "Rocker," Slade."

True, but what a year, 1960!

Can you imagine what it was like to be a 14 year old boy when the ground beneath your feet was heaving with earthquakes on so many fronts? Imagine if there was no such thing as a "slasher movie." And then suddenly, there was PSYCHO!

And right on its heels came THRILLER! with Boris Karloff, of which Stephen King says, "The best horror series ever put on TV!"

Last year, THRILLER! was finally released on DVD (and premieres tonight on Channel 12 KVOS, Mbwun and Luna):

http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/37531/ ... e-thriller

Check out the lineup of stories:

http://www.thrillerguide.net/season1.htm

That first season was too strong, and had to be toned down. In Vancouver, it played at 11:30 p.m. on a school night, but my mom was so cool that she did nothing to curb my imagination, and I was allowed to stay up and watch it. Here, have a taste:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLyroDnpK8o

Meanwhile, back to "Corinna," when almost all records were in mono and recorded with a single take:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouanlAQ- ... re=related

Now, listen again, what's that SOUND! They call it STEREO, Sladists, in the hands of the man who invented the "Wall of Sound": Phil Spector:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GosAAdxDRs

Spector's trademark during that era was the so-called Wall of Sound, a production technique yielding a dense, layered effect that reproduced well on AM radio and jukeboxes. To attain this signature sound, Spector gathered large groups of musicians (playing some instruments not generally used for ensemble playing, such as electric and acoustic guitars) playing orchestrated parts — often doubling and tripling many instruments playing in unison — for a fuller sound. Spector himself called his technique "a Wagnerian approach to rock & roll: little symphonies for the kids".

The Big Bang.

In the beginning, there was nothing...

And then suddenly, there was!

What a rush! What a thrill! What a great time to be 14!

Can you dig it?

Cool - now I just have to figure out where KVOS is - we just switched over to digital cable here this week and everything has changed. Plus we have way too many (free) channels right now - I'm lost in TV land.

Edit - we don't get KVOS here :evil: . I might have to see if I can find the DVD box set for a good price somewhere.

No KVOS here either. It's not included with basic cable. It used to be, but it was switched with TSN a year or two ago.

The KVOS website says it broadcasts in Bellingham and parts of southwestern BC - which would explain why we don't get it here in Salmon Arm. And it's not on any other station we get here, at least for the next couple of weeks - I searched.

KVOS broadcasts over the air at channel 12, and Shaw cable carries it at channel 30 in this area. It used to be CBS's secondary station in the Pacific Northwest - don't know about now though.

Is it your birthday Scott? Well then, Happy Birthday!

Don't know if I've welcomed you to the board yet, so Welcome too!

Happy Birthday, Scott.

19 is a wonderful age, so suck every drop of life out of it. Don't look to the future as being the Good Times. The Good Times are 19.

When I was 19, I was living on less than $2 a day and rumbling on a train behind the Iron Curtain heading from Vienna to Moscow at the height of the Cold War, with everyone telling my mom, "If something goes wrong, he'll never get out."

Lots went wrong, but I did survive!

I came out into 1967's Summer of Love, and all of a sudden, 19 year olds were listening to stuff like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SQAdwdT ... re=related

What the fuck!?

When I went into the Soviet Union, we were listening to this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp3JOzcpBds

Would I like to be 19 back then again? HELL YES!!!!

and after I jump back into Red Snow and read a few chapters I'm going to watch Johnny Depp play a great writer thats right Hunter S. Thompson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WANNqr-v ... re=related
with this great Jefferson Airplane song as well as Somebody to Love, and Thompson actually does have a cameo in the movie when Depp is in the matrix he sees Thompson as himself he even says: "holy mother of god here I am holy F**K"
I think the songs that were in the movie like Dylan, Dead Kennedys, The Stones its a great soundtrack but that it needed was some Cream http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGZeqwdWoeo thats just me I think it wouldve been perfect, and all it might've needed was Clapton appearing aswell and him being the traffic cop instead of Gary Busey.

Scott,

You've got a good grasp on the Summer of Love, even though it's way before your time.

Time, as in Timeline. That's what I'm discussing in "Corinna, Corinna" above.

For example. An anthem of the 60s was Canned Heat's "Going Up The Country":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhJdJ3UX ... re=related

At Woodstock:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2t4ChnI ... re=related

But if we dig deeper, thanks to YouTube, we find its roots in "Bull-Doze Blues" by Henry Thomas in 1928:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Qo9R5kDZWY

And the title comes from Barbecue Bob, who died in 1931:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KBV7ubv ... re=related

And because there was no YouTube in the 60s, you now know more about that song than just about any "head" who WAS at Woodstock!

My god, that guy with the Canned Heat clip has some fantastic stuff on his channel. I could spend all night there. Even though I'm not quite old enough to remember that time :wink: it's one of my favorite eras of music. I even splurged last year and bought the Woodstock anniversary DVD with the fancy little suede fringed box cover and all :lol:

I love this song:

But the clothes . . . wow

So that's Canned Heat, eh? I only get one real clear commercial radio station here in Lillooet that I like (the one from Kamloops plays top 40 and there's too much autotuned shit on there) and that's Rock 101. They play a lot of classic rock and I've heard this and never known the artists behind it. Good stuff. Lots of good stuff out there to find, lots of time to find it.
I wish the media would report more on public service and charity news instead of gossip. It is of much greater value. - Jackie Chan
