スーパー戦隊シリーズ Super Sentai

スーパー戦隊シリーズ 1

スーパー戦隊シリーズ 2

Two rousing themes from legendary, long running Japanese television series スーパー戦隊シリーズ Sūpā Sentai Shirīzu, or Super Sentai series in English. The adventures of the heroic seven were produced by the equally legendary Toei studios, who shamefully later sold the concept to the Marvel Company, rubbish merchants hell-bent on reducing everyone to the intellectual level of a suburban American 13-year old boy. Naturally, the resulting new Power Rangers had none of the charm of the original.

Unfinished Journey @ 33

Sheets in the ForestBiddu Orchestra – Unfinished Journey @ 33

A few days ago I spotted a leaking hydraulic pipe in my car. Naturally my first reaction was that all things come to an end and my beloved magic carpet would be dead forever. Thankfully cigarettes, alcohol and happy people encouraged me to fix it. It was sort of fun to wallow in LHM-fluids under the car in order to attach a replacement pipe to the system. Now the road is open again! So, where next? Maybe to spot some castle ruins or abandoned buildings in the forest. As much as I love road tripping, I’d really really love to try cycling again (a motivation deprivation after all those years with bad knees and still bad knees). Everything is such addictive fun with bicycles. For example as a child I remember riding through the sheets. Unfortunately there’s no picture to prove it, but it did happen… maybe once, until it was forbidden as about anything that was fun. That’s why you have to settle for a still from Vera Chytilovás Ovoce stromu rajských jíme (Fruit of Paradise). Soundscape from a classic Biddu 45 played at wrong speed.

A Few More For The Road

moreroadNights are gradually getting darker and the nightly trips to the nearest lakes feel much more dreamy. My favourite swimming spot is located about one hour drive from Turku. The road includes a short highway passage and twisty floating roads in the forest. Here are a few grooves tested on those roads. Some already approved on the dance floor too.

Charlie Hillson – Disco Flight 905

Krackers – Machines

A Band Called “O” – Coasting

TCP – Oasis

D’JS – Devil’s Woman

Under the radar until recently this 1978 Belgian obscurity is fast gaining fame. Thanks to Adrian Lindez for pointing it out to me.

大和 (Space Battleship Yamato)

The Earth is under attack from the Gamilas, alien invaders who are causing radioactive asteroids to rain down into Earth’s oceans and threatening to make our planet uninhabitable. Our last hope for survival is the New Space Battleship YAMATO which will be built inside the wreckage of the legendary WW2 battleship YAMATO, now buried beneath the sea!

Groovy Records For Driving At Night

groovy records photoI had nothing better to do tonight than drive pointlessly around the small country roads. Usually I like to go for a refreshing swim, but tonight I was feeling too lazy for anything that sensible. As I can’t afford a car with sexy engine noises it was something from the stereos then. If it sounds groovy in the car it sounds groovy anywhere? Here are a few examples tested. Sound qualities vary from vg- to near mint. Enjoy!

Igor Savin i Orkestar Stanka Selaka – U Mukama Rođena

Philippe Chany – Lettre À Monsieur Le Législateur (De La Loi Sur Les Stupéfiants)

Tribu Bantu – Elephants In Love

Chaos

paris chaosQuartz – Chaos

One of those all too common disco tracks everyone has and that’s why I’ve never dared to play it in public. Kinda sad thinking how good it sounds hearing it over and over again while watching rain dancing on my windowsill. Might sound the part at the parties on 120 db at 6.17 a.m. In the picture something horribly chaotic, but disturbingly peaceful at the same time. Library books floating on the streets of Paris after the catastrophic floods in 1910.

Instrumental Queen

queen2

The Soul Symphony Orchestra – The Queen of Chinatown

Yes, it’s an instrumental version of La Lear’s immortal hit. Here’s the lyrics. Now release your inner Diva:

It was down in Chinatown that I met the opium Queen
babyface girl from Shanghai never smile and never cry.
She now rules the underworld down in Chinatown
she runs all the opium dens down in Chinatown.

Bring her your gold bring her your worries
and when life gets a bit too dreary to stand
give a ring to the Queen of Chinatown.

Go down go down
to the Queen of Chinatown
she’ll pick you up when you’re feeling down.
Go down go down
to the Queen of Chinatown
and she’ll soon blow your blues away!

TT. Sotto – Chorus Line

Obviously intended as the ultimate line dance anthem this American track by the always interesting producer Titti Sotto was a flop in 1975. Sure sounds funky now.

Surf seven from 1979 has a strong cult rep. B-side not half bad, either.

Places Of Light

kolka picBrainticket – Places Of Light

This classic psych tune started to play in my head when wandering at the endless beaches of Kolka, Latvija. Black Sand from the same album is more dancefloor oriented with beautifully bounding drum and wah-wahs.
