It’s practically November, which means a nip in the air and colorful leaves — or no leaves at all — for lots of people, but you’d never know it from Panda Bear’s new video, “Comfy in Nautica.” The clip for Person Pitch’s opening track is dappled in sunlight and sunny harmonies, lapping waves and overlapping sounds, and zooming sound effects echoed by the tricks the skateboarder pulls off as the video unfolds. The haze and lens flares just add to the feeling of endless summer — whether it’s actually here, or just a memory.

Willie Alexander put music to local Beat poet Vincent Ferrini's words.
April 14, 2009
GLOUCESTER - It's tough to imagine someone with more bohemian mileage than Boston rock legend Willie "Loco" Alexander. Now in his 60s but still acting like a teenager buying his first 45s, Alexander played in psychedelic garage bands in the 1960s, survived a tour of duty in the last version of the Velvet Underground, and anchored the Boston punk scene with his Boom Boom Band a few years later. Still wildly prolific, he has been indulging his experimental muse ever since.
But Alexander was always awed by another free spirit, Vincent Ferrini, the "people's poet" of Gloucester who served as the city's first and longstanding poet laureate until his death, at the ripe age of 94, in late 2007. "I miss him," says Alexander. "I'd see him around town, at parties and art stuff. He was always really encouraging for everyone here."
Last year Alexander used a grant from the local arts council to set a couple of Ferrini's poems to music. He liked the results so much he turned it into a full-blown album project called "Vincent Ferrini's Greatest Hits." It's for sale on his website, www.williealexander.com.
Working with Tony Goddess of the Rudds at his downtown Gloucester studio, Bang a Song, Alexander called on his wide travels in rock 'n' roll style, from tribal stomp to No Wave bleating to hypnotic ambience, all the while losing himself in Ferrini's life-affirming words. Words and writers have played a big part in his music over the years. Next to the classic "Mass. Ave" (one of Stephen King's all-time favorite rock songs), the Boom Boom Band's second signature song was "Kerouac," Alexander's tribute to the Beat writer who taught him to appreciate local character. When the Boom Boom Band reunited some years ago, the members led off their comeback CD with a rocking adaptation of "Gravelly Hill," a poem by the late Gloucester colossus (and Ferrini contemporary) Charles Olson.
Still, says Alexander, "I don't consciously think about poetry and rock. I'm lucky if something I've done is called poetry." His process for the new project was simple: He read through Ferrini's tall stack of published poems, looking for lines he felt he could sing. Then he let the music grow spontaneously around the words; the recording of the moody, echo-y "Always Between" was, Alexander says, "like jumping off a cliff." One track, deceptively called "Folk Song," actually comes off like an old Stones jam laid on tape while Keith was out taking a bathroom break.
Ferrini's recorded voice shows up on "Vincent & Friends," which, with its liberal use of the Brazilian cuica, sounds like a samba party in a subway station. Goddess says he was inspired by Alexander's "willingness to let it fly, throwing stuff on tape and banging on the piano." He was amazed, he says, by "how much personality Willie gets out through the microphone. Here's this guy twice my age who's twice as fired up as I am. He's been through the ringer, he's famous in France but nowhere else, and he's still totally into it."
Though "Ferrini's Greatest Hits" sounds nothing like a jazzbo spoken word project, Alexander still acknowledges the debt he owes the Beats. "It's all one big Beat bowl of soup, as Kerouac would probably put it," he says. "That's always been part of my consciousness. Not that I've tried to stay back there, but I'm proud to be a beatnik."

Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers' 'Does Your Mama Know About Me'
Sunday, 28 June 2009 00:27
"Does Your Mama Know About Me" by Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers (1968)
In 1968, this soul song was a modest hit (#29) for the falsetto-voiced Taylor, whose Motown group the Vancouvers included Tommy Chong (above left; second to right on album cover) on guitar. Yes, that Tommy Chong!

Unexpected, Untimely And Shocking Deaths In Music
Heart attacks. Plane crashes. Car crashes. Drug overdoses. Murder. Over the years, these have become some of the most common causes of the often shocking deaths in the music industry. On a lighter note, some might argue that even ham sandwiches have been involved.
Regardless of the cause, take a look back at these musical icons that have left us way, way, way too soon - yet have left us with legacies that will live on forever. The majority of these deaths, in addition to being sudden and shocking, were in some way either ironic or just completely messed up. Rock on...
June 25, 2009. Age: 50. Cause of death (speculated prior to autopsy): respiratory/cardiac arrest allegedly brought on by the use of multiple mixed prescription drugs.
On Thursday, June 25, 2009, the world was shocked to hear that pop superstar Michael Jackson had suffered a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital, after which he fell into a deep coma for a brief time and ultimately passed away. Love him, or hate him due to the controversies surrounding him for the better part of the last 15 years, there's no denying that Jackson's sudden death ranks up there with the most shocking celebrity deaths like that of Diana, Princess of Wales, who was killed in a car accident in France in 1997; John Lennon's murder in 1980; and Elvis Presley's sad demise, perhaps on the eve of a potential comeback, in 1977.
Reports claimed that Jackson was on a "cocktail" of seven different prescription drugs, including Demerol, which was basically the equivalent of the five point palm-exploding heart technique that killed Bill. Again, that's seven different prescription drugs.
