Macklay/Reminick/Haydn/Fisher-LochheadSerious Business – Spektral Quartet (CD/blu-ray) ... CD
Sono Luminus, 2016. New Copy 2CDs ... $17.99 24.99
A wonderful record from this important string quartet – a group who strike a fine balance between being playful and playing powerfully, and who have a really tremendous ear for unusual repertoire too! The cover and title might seem a bit gimmicky, but Spektral Quartet are far from that – as they really grab us right away with their unusual sense of string textures, and the greater sonic possibilities of the quartet – working here on some material commissioned especially for the group, and other compositions that they really transform in their performance. The set begins with the captivating "Many Many Cadences" – a piece that's exactly as the title describes – then moves into the "Ancestral Mousetrap", a suite of tracks that also features some text from Russell Edson performed by the group as they play. The album then makes an abrupt shift to Haydn's "String Quartet Op 33 No 2 – The Joke" – which is handled by the group with a style that's faithful to the writing, but also very individual as well – especially as it's followed by "Hack" – a long suite of very short tracks, which follows the "joke" thematically, as each section is titled after a comedian – "Sarah Silverman", "Lenny Bruce", "Dick Gregory", and so on – but all with individual performances that extrapolate the ideas of those performers through a modern string quartet interpretation.

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreThis P*ssy Belongs To Me – The Second Rudy Ray Moore Album ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rudy Ray Moore's second album, and almost hipper than the first – thanks to some key musical backings from The Fillmore St Soul Rebellion! The vibe here is as rough and raw as you'd expect – a no-holds-barred version of party records, with Rudy using plenty of language hardly heard this strongly on record again until the hip hop generation. The music's often mixed a bit lower than the vocals, but is still present enough to make things sound funky – and titles include the classic "Mr Big Dick", plus "The Gorillas Are Coming", "California Poetry", "Hurricane Anne Meets Dolemite", and "40 Pounds of Chitlings". Language is raw – so be warned! LP, Vinyl record album
("Comedian Series" pressing.)

✨✧ Patton OswaltSilver Screen Fiend – Learning About Life From An Addiction To Film (hardcover) ... Book
Simon & Schuster, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Most folks know Patton Oswalt as a comedian and actor, but he's also a hell of a film fanatic too – and charges cinema as the main influence for everything he's created on his own! In fact, Oswalt was so dedicated to film at one point, that he was a "silver screen fiend" – often seeing as many as four films in a day, often in a theatrical setting – feeding heavily on the liveliest of arts, and keeping a diary in the process! The book has Patton going back over his most fanatical film years, recounting not just the movies themselves, but his own obsession with them – all at a level that's as smart and witty as his standup work, and maybe a fair bit more intellectual, too. The whole thing's a very surprising read, and quite rewarding to both fans of films, and Oswalt's other work – and there's a fair bit here that might well apply to the music and record-obsessed too. 222 pages, hardcover. Book
(Small remainder mark on spine.)
