Comment:

Every garage snob worth his/her weight in soiled 45s becomes uncontrollably weak in the knees when hit with the sound of that almighty cheesy organ. Happened to me, I swear! Years ago, possessed by the need for cheese, I drove a beat-to-shit bug convertible out to Pissville, Ohio, following a hot tip on an ancient Farfisa organ. And there it was - $50, a steal even if it didnt' work. Drove it home, and the rest is history. (I'm no organist, but that just might be me on track 11). So here you have my fave moments of ultra cheesy organ sounds - some classics, some shouda-beens, and some definite glad-they-weren'ts. Gotta say BIG thanks for King LoFi, Madam Buglady and God's own Casetta, for hurling Fleshtones my way. And also many thanks to Franklin Onn for that boss SDQ tune. And thanks to all of you - you're nice people, you are. (I suspect that I'll add one or two more tracks, after they're x-ferred from vinyl - look for the Chesterfield King's "She told me lies".) Also, some of these tracks may not feature exclusively Farfisa organs - I'll just bet there's a Vox Continental thrown in here and there. But no goddamned synthesizers! Alright - Let the cheese flow!

Can't say I ever need to hear that again. Regardless, it's a Hammond B-3 on the track.

Another great mix. I love all those organ sounds... Farfisa or Hammond. As a teenager in the 60s I grew up next door to a guy who played a Cordovox. Talk about a cheesy organ and we're also talkin' about a Philly row house so we all heard a lot of 96 tears, etc. Sometimes we would jam together with my tenor sax. This mix brings it all back.

I was kidding, Sean. And I knew about the B-3. Just figured I'd tweak you about including your own bands on your mixes... (all in good fun, friend).

What, no Joe King Carrasco? JKC & the Crowns are like a mainline of taco-flavored spray cheese! I think they probably studied at the feet of the great Augie Meyers. This looks like a fabulous compilation, O Cheese King.

I've been hooked on farfisa since the opening notes to strychnine by The Sonics, one of my favorite instruments. I have to have this. I'm copying some mixes for you as I write this. Have you seen the Cynics lately ? They are playing in Toronto on the 10th, I only have their first album.

Here's a rhyme for you, G!
"when I lay my mat"
"I git real phat"
"I'm gonna breakdance"
"'cause I like it like that!"

Great mix, Sean. Keep Breakin'!

Outrageously good tunes, Sean. Glad to see you back in the swing of things again. My burner is not operating at 100% at the moment, but when it does, I hope you find something of interest in my collection, so's I can get an excuse to raid yours' once again! Great work, my friend.

I love the farfisa sound, man. What was Elvis Costello using on The Beat from This Year's Model? any chance of getting this in a trade?

Cheese quotient so high you gotta' force it thru' a tube! ("96 Tears" may be my first experience with this instrument of ecstatic release....) May need a V.2....my first thought, post-? & the Mysterians, was "Commercial Rain" by Inspiral Carpets....put me in the line for a copy of my very own as well.....it's all utilitarian!

Very nice Sean! I don't know the difference between a Farfisa, a Hammond or a Vox Continental, but I do know I like this mix, and would love to trade for it someday. So what's become of Madam Buglady? I hope she's not stuck in a jar somewhere.

I know it's anachronistic, but Squeeze's "Farfisa Beat" would've fit well on this. (Then there's Stereolab's "Farfisa", but that might be even more out of place.)

Here in CASETTAland, there is a Farfisa, scored from The Water Street Mission Thrift Shop in Lancaster PA. It was $30. The upper keys don't work (I should get them fixed). It is groovy!
