Put the finishing touches on this project for a trade with the French Connection... (a Marcel Duchamp theme mix). Thanks to Matt from TODCRA for the Bonzo Dog Band tunes, Man Ray for the pic, and Vuc Cosic for the "Duchamp for the airports" signage (blatantly stolen of course). Check out
. Marcel also wrote music. The website has some of his pieces, and more Duchamp-inspired tunes and poetry.
Blasikin? I'm aware of his work. You only have to see this to know why -- another high quality production -- lucky old French Connection, I say.
Looks like a great mix Mike. One I'd like to hear in full (hint). Nice artwork also.
Little Spencer Boys
Sweet, but we need a mirror to read the cover playlist, hehehe. A day without Bonzo is a day sore in need of insanity...
Lil' Spencer, thanks for the comment. This is a folded cd cover, so it turns out right side up on the inside.
lookin really good blasikin!
Good gods!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Tell my giraffe in the tub how I might get one!)
You sucked me in with the artists and I do indeed wish there was a link. As mentioned, a wonderful cover.
Can't wait to get my ears around this, merci beaucoup.
joey de vivre
Rose is a rose is a rose, but my heart belongs to dada!
Very ingenious & artful, AND, I would bet, fun to listen to too!
Yes, but is it Art?Only joking, looks inspired.Would go well whilst supping from a furry teacup...
this is lovely. wow.
i can't belive it's not butter!
The freaking 13th Floor Elevators! You know, they had nearly slipped my mind. That just makes my day, I need to throw them on my next one. Kudos on the overall tracklist, by the way.
Whoa, phenomenal! Great tunes, inspiration, and cover (I love that portrait, especially when paired with Baroness Elsa looking equally gender-ambiguous.)
Thanks for the comment! I checked out the link & was a bit disappointed with the lurid tone of it. That was always the problem with the Baroness, she didn't get enough credit for her genius, inspiration, or influence on modernism -- she lived dada every day, and her art exacted great pains. It is now believed that Fountain was her gift to Duchamp, the graffito "R Mutt" her secret signature with many layers of meaning, some personal. It certainly fit her lifestyle of scavenging "found art" objects. It's sad that she is not a household name like her illustrious friends, that people like Marcel and Man Ray could be faithless shits who at times merely reflected her glory but received accolades & perks while she suffered privations; that if it weren't for Djuna Barnes' tireless PR campaign on Elsa's behalf when the world was not prepared for such a force, keeping her poetry in literary journals, she might be buried beneath the shifting sands entirely. I think half her fabled madness was starvation. Anyway, I looked online for that companion photo & couldn't find it, but discovered artnet.com has a nice page on her:
