From The Darkness Of Hell Out She Came

Family's important shit, man.

Family's important shit, man.

So yesterday, my good friend, Bwana, asked me if I had seen the trailer to the upcoming movie, ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL.

I was embarrassed to admit that I had not…for three reasons.

One, I like to think that I have my finger on the pulse of the movie biz and two, it’s a documentary about a heavy metal band from the 80s.

Oh, and the third reason? Get this, I had no idea who ANVIL was. Never heard of ’em…never listened to any of their records…

Groan……how did I miss out on these Canadian Monsters of Heavy Metal?!

Beats me. Just lazy I guess?

Oh, and Bwana says that ANVIL’SMetal on Metal” is one of the great records of the 80’s,” and that it’s, “Up there with “Ride the Lightning” and “Piece of Mind“.

For eternity Mothra reigns supreme !

For eternity Mothra reigns supreme !

What the fuck, right?

Comparisons to classic Metallica and Maiden?

Can it be true?

Well, after some research I think I have to agree with Bwana…These dudes fucking rock!

They even have a song about MOTHRA, for Christ’s sake…fucking MOTHRA, man!

Now I gotta’ get my hands on some ANVIL LPs something fierce!

Doomsday Cults, Devil’s Triangle, Black Revolutionaries, Bikers, and Blue Eyed Soul.

Crazy title for a blog, huh? Well, it must mean another payday has come and gone and daddy has snatched up another pile of LPs for his listening pleasure.

Let’s start with this whole DOOMSDAY CULT business:

Hey, it’s that sarin gas wacko! That’s right kids, what we have here is a 7″ featuring 2 songs from none other than Shoko Asahara…yoga enthusiast, cult leader, and now, velvety crooner!

I have to admit, “Lord Death’s Counting Song” and “Sonshi’s March” were both relaxing little songs to start my morning off with. Pretty cool 45, but truth be told, when it comes to Japanese music, nothing makes me more happy than THE MOTHRA SONG by those delightful shobijinn.

So what about this mysterious Devil’s Triangle, then?

1979s THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE by TOMITA! It has a beautiful sea blue colored vinyl and according to the packaging, “Each side of this record contains coded data in the form of certain sound effects. The message can be recovered if the electrical signal from the record is interfaced with the input of a micro computer programmed to the TARBEL System.

Say what? Whatever, nerds, it’s Tomita, and I loooove me some Moog and Roland Synthesizers! If you’ve never heard of this dude, please click around and amaze your ears.

“The man got down…the brothers were ready… You must see it! It’s a mother!”

The soundtrack to THE FINAL COMEDOWN by Grant Green. I haven’t seen this movie, but believe me, I’m on the lookout! I couldn’t find any clips of the film online, but here’s a musical sampling:

Fuck yeah, now that’s funky!

Now howsabout some Bikers? That’s a little misleading…you see, there are some bikers featured in EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE:


But the soundtrack has both kinds of music…Country and Western!

And that leaves us with blue eyed soul…peep the SMITH lp in the upper left of the pic. I finally got my hot little hands on this fucking record! Remember when I was all gay for Gayle McCormick a few posts back? It’s mine now, and I plan of playing the shit out of it.

That’s all for now….oh, and I’ll be posting some big big news about some new happenings for The Canacorns tomorrow! Stay tuned!
