NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #263 ~ 03-27-21]

Pictured: The Jones Girls.

Of course lots of women look better in their own places. Once in a while you get a stunner who knocks them cold in a restaurant but back in her own living room takes on the second-rate lifelessness of her own handpicked ordinary background. Still the majority of women come out better in their own homes, so it wasn’t really so surprising that Ebie should look quite dignified, and unusually pretty, coming down the staircase to music, for the radio was playing a Paul Whiteman recording of “Afraid to Dream” as sumptuously soft as the white bear rug in front of the great fireplace. Ebie was a girl who changed at every appearance from pretty to chic to naïve to plain tart, but this was a good night, the socko from Oliver had challenged her. Her hair was reddish gold tonight—Lou dimly recalled it as platinum at one time—and instead of the cutie-pie curls it was arranged in two plaits around her head so that her small naughty face with knowing hazel eyes looked not the least tartish. She wore a long-sleeved brownish-gold dinner dress and the amber jewelry on that with her hair and coloring was something that struck an odd new chord in Lou, something that didn’t seem to stem from Ebie herself but from some new force Lou had never struck before.

Pictured: Lord Buckley.

Like many of his routines, Lord Buckley’s own life was a hectic and chaotic parody of grandiosity. He held court constantly and he had willing courtiers because he was, for so many admirers, the Living Presence Of Swing. According to Charles Tacot’s liner notes to the album The Best Of Lord Buckley, he once marched a troupe of sixteen nude people through the lobby of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. He inaugurated his own “religion” — the Church of the Living Swing — which featured, besides his uproarious monologues, two belly dancers. The “church” was raided by the vice squad…Lord Buckley gave proof of an immense awareness of the grandeur that existed outside of him, but he did not think it would represent any tribute to that grandeur if he groveled in front of an altar. “People should worship people,” was his reply.

— from Joseph Jablonski’s introduction to Lord Buckley: The Hiparama Of The Classics.

The Mods could be said to be functioning as bricoleurs when they appropriated another range of commodities by placing them in a symbolic ensemble which served to erase or subvert their original straight meanings. Thus pills medically prescribed for the treatment of neuroses were used as ends-in-themselves, and the motor scooter, originally an ultra-respectable means of transport, was turned into a menacing symbol of group solidarity. In the same improvisatory manner, metal combs, honed to a razor-like sharpness, turned narcissism into an offensive weapon. Union Jacks were emblazoned on the backs of grubby parka anoraks or cut up and converted into smartly tailored jackets. More subtly, the conventional insignia of the business world – the suit, collar and tie, short hair, etc. – were stripped of their original connotations – efficiency, ambition, compliance with authority – and transformed into ‘empty’ fetishes, objects to be desired, fondled and valued in their own right.

— Dick Hebdige, Subculture: The Meaning Of Style.

Having survived another Luxuria Music FUN-Drive fortnight, the Purple Bat Lounge’s resident DJ’s Reeshard and Lee-Roy set about crafting four sets’s worth of feral music, yet another perfect soundtrack for ill-considered decisions made in a bad part of town.

NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [FUN-Drive Ep’s. 259 & 260]

It’s that time of year…again. Being, of course, the two week interval during which the staff of Luxuria Music exhort you, the listener, to chip in (however much you can) and help keep us on the virtual airwaves with your financial support. Episodes #259 & #260 of No Condition Is Permanent are FUN-Drive episodes. These are not your normal/formal entreaties to shake your wallet hand loose. Far from it! These episodes are infused with amusement and music, as much or more than an entire Labor Day weekend spent in Jerry Lewis’ company. (You’re welcome, amphetamine users.) Why, in last Saturday’s FUN-Drive episode (#259), listeners heard:

• Luxuria Music’s Program Director & Station Den Mother Kat Griffin flew to Detroit and visited the Purple Bat Lounge, home to N.C.I.P.. This, just in time for…

• The bar’s annual Naked Billiards Tournament, the latter interrupted respectively by…

• The arrival of marauding bike gang Satan’s Sadists, who parked inside the bar, the better to intervene when…

• DJ Lee-Roy instigated a full-on brawl, owing to the dog’s insistence that the game was not being played according to Hoyle (or Lee-Roy)

• The weekly visit from — and random destruction of the bar’s curbside lawn jockey by — Uncle Morty’s Midnite Mobile Dispensary™, which is an installment of each and every N.C.I.P. episode much loved by regular listeners.

• And, by necessity, slightly less of the usual bevy of feral tunes from all over the map, your weekly perfect soundtrack for ill-considered decisions.

Those desiring the Ep. #259 experience can download same simply by clicking HERE.

To help ensure that morally questionable programming as described above remains available to unsuspecting listeners worldwide, Luxuria Music NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT. Which is easy enough to do, simply by visiting the Luxuria Music Store and choosing either a Monthly Sponsorship option or else purchasing one of many items available therein. The No Condition Is Permanent store offers two new items for the 2021 FUN-Drive, these being:

Yes, TWO different styles of full color, U/V-coated postcard packs, with 10 cards per pack. And they’re cheap! (@ $20.) Choose BLOTTER or SLEAZE — or both — and give yourself either some bitchin’ refrigerator art or a reason to use the US Postal System (which the last president failed to kill). Either way, we both win!

AND there are still terrific items available in the N.C.I.P. store from previous FUN-Drives, including the museum-quality, full-color enamel LEE-ROY lapel pin. All N.C.I.P. pledge premiums (premia?) are certified hexbreakers, guaranteed to dispel any and all Bad Vuggum from your existence.

N.C.I.P. as one usually experiences it will resume on Saturday, March 13th…but ONLY if we’re still around!

So, please, help Luxuria Music to whatever extent that’s possible and we’ll still be around to help you murder Saturday evenings.

There was another important motivation for providing instrumentals for sound systems. By the mid-1960s, the first generation of sound system operators turned record producers were increasingly devoting time to their production activities, and their roles at dances were filled by resident deejays, the most loquacious of whom began to “toast” (that is, rap) over the music to excite the crowd. The first deejays were people like Count Machuki and King Stitt (both working Coxsone’s Downbeat system), and with the emergence of the groundbreaking U-Roy (Ewart Beckford) with King Tubby’s sound system around 1970… These musicians specialized in exhorting the crowd to dance with their various styles of stream-of-consciousness vocalizing; the new dub plates, with vocals partially or completely removed, allowed the deejays the sonic space to improvise freely over the rhythm as would a jazz soloist. Clive Chin remembered the rise of the deejay as a dominant force in the sound systems, and the role the dub plate played: “Sound system become modernized now. You no have one turntable no more, you have two turntable, so you play the vocal, like Heptones’ ‘Tripe Girl’ or ‘Guiding Star,’ and just about as the music finish after three minutes and change—BOOM!—the version just come in with the drum and bass and the man just pick up the mic at the same time and begin to toast, him a nice up the sound!”

— Michael Veal, Dub: Soundscapes And Shattered Songs In Jamaican Reggae.

Uncle Morty’s Midnite Mobile Dispensary™ pulled up in front of the Purple Bat Lounge last Saturday evening, as it does every week. However this stop was distinguished by the unveiling of Sleeroy, yet another cannabis strain named for N.C.I.P. co-host Lee-Roy. What this did for the dog’s ego, already a thing of brobdingnagian proportions, you’ll have to hear to believe. Which you can in fact hear, along with oodles of great music, simply by clicking immediately below…

Those listeners in attendance for the previous Saturday’s episode (Ep. 256) of No Condition Is Permanent can well attest to the righteous indignation felt at the time by co-host Lee-Roy. The cause of our favorite pit bull’s chagrin? The latest issue of Lee-Roy’s favorite canine specialized sex fetish magazine, Paws’n’Gravy, had not been delivered as yet. Lee-Roy accused his fellow DJ and human minder Reeshard of failing to re-up the subscription, implying some form of censorial judgement on the latter’s part for not doing so. Words were exchanged, not-so-veiled threats were lodged (by the dog, against Reeshard’s wedding tackle, it’s to be noted) with Reeshard insisting upon his own innocence throughout. Well, the issue arrived this week, just as Reeshard said it would…and not just any issue, but the annual Culinary Special, for which Lee-Roy spends much of his canine year waiting. It did not disappoint. Nor did N.C.I.P.. Brother Steve, one of the program’s Charming Deviationists™ — being those regulars in the Chat Room throughout the broadcast — deemed this episode “A Master Class in cool music.” Who are we to disagree?

Pictured: The Cimarons.

To the new young bands roots reggae was a particularly relevant expression of blackness. Although US soul was an equally eloquent voice of protest, it wasn’t from the Caribbean. Whereas the older generation of West Indian immigrants used American Civil Rights and Black Power as a revolutionary template – the 1968 Olympics clenched-fist protest had considerable global impact – their children seemed determined to break this connection. To them, America of the 1970s was represented by movies, music and TV detectives, and although those racial reference points included the keenly received John Shaft, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Black Moses, Superfly, Huggy Bear, Curtis Mayfield, Richard Pryor and Roots, they were never celebrated with the same seriousness as, say, This Is Augustus Pablo or Burning Spear’s Social Living. And compared to a Jah Shaka sound-system dance – as it frequently was – there was never going to be anything righteous about a discotheque. The British kids looked to make the most of their island heritage, as to assume an English identity was becoming increasingly at odds with a welcome mat that was wearing woefully thin, and with Rastafari and roots reggae presenting a ‘home-grown’ rebel stance they just didn’t need the USA. And the bonus was that to absorb the whole dread package was as much about going forward as it was about somewhere to take refuge.

In everything that can be called art there is a quality of redemption. It may be pure tragedy, if it is high tragedy, and it may be pity and irony, and it may be the raucous laughter of the strong man. But down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. The detective in this kind of story must be such a man. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor – by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world. I do not care much about his private life; he is neither a eunuch nor a satyr; I think he might seduce a duchess and I am quite sure he would not spoil a virgin; if he is a man of honor in one thing, he is that in all things.

— Raymond Chandler, The Simple Art Of Murder.

This past Saturday evening found DJ Reeshard approaching Uncle Morty’s truck near and around 10pm. The pale, elderly former rock writer reached in his pocket for a few crumpled notes of large denomination. Offering these, he received in turn a small canister marked ‘Dank Commander,’ its label additionally adorned with an image of Frank Sinatra. Reeshard did not stop to ponder the significance of this, but instead handed the small can off to his sidekick Lee-Roy. The latter promptly disappeared within the Women’s and was not heard from for several minutes. Then things happened…but if you’re curious as to what, or the three dozen plus musical choices were made that evening, simply click on the arrow immediately below. The Great Learning will then envelop you…

In her essay ‘Notes on “Camp”’, Susan Sontag said that camp is about dethroning the serious. To twist Wilde, the essence of camp is the Importance of Not Being Earnest. In another famous passage about camp – from Christopher Isherwood’s The World in the Evening – one of the characters expresses his vexation with Quakers: their dogged dedication to simplicity and sincerity, plain dress and plain speech. ‘I respect them … They’ve got the courage of their convictions, and they mean exactly what they say … What I do hate about the Quakers, though, is their lack of style. They don’t know how to do things with an air … They’ve no notion of elegance …’ (Isherwood lived for a while with a Quaker community in California, so knew about this first hand.) Another version of the puritan versus cavalier divide is Willa Cather’s dichotomy between Presbyteria and Bohemia. In her short story ‘Paul’s Case’, a highly strung, dandy youth in turn-of-the-century Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – a state founded by Quakers – flouts his father’s desire for him to go into business, moves to New York and fritters all his potential in the pursuit of exquisiteness.

The big difference between Paul’s early-twentieth-century brand of foppery and its late-twentieth-century version was, as Sontag observed, that ‘the old-style dandy hated vulgarity. The new-style dandy, the lover of Camp, appreciates vulgarity.’ This was the Dolls and their audience to a T: they found amusement, even a sort of sublimity, in after-midnight B-movies, comic books and other mass-culture pabulum.

— Simon Reynolds, Shock And Awe.

For every action there is…well, truth be told, in the instance of a slight as perceived by a hot-headed pit bull, a decidedly unequal reaction. Last Saturday’s episode of N.C.I.P. began with DJ Reeshard flying solo. This wasn’t planned. Co-host Lee-Roy was nowhere to be found at air time and didn’t turn up until, some thirty minutes later, a sopping wet dog entered the Purple Bat Lounge with murder in his heart for one of the bar’s neighbors. Were I to tell you that ‘Merriment ensued…’ you probably wouldn’t believe me. You’d be right, but that didn’t stop the flow of terrific music, nor did Lee-Roy’s vengeful intent prevent Uncle Morty’s truck from pulling up at the halfway point. Indeed, one of Morty’s products proved the catalyst for an evening unlike any other experienced on Brush Street. How different? Click immediately below and hear for yourself…

The central problem, boredom, still remained. [Malcolm] McLaren scanned the cityscape for portents. ‘Same NY or here,’ he scribbled in a shop ledger in the early spring of 1974: ‘In NY more people bump into each other more often. London – people trying to find a lot of people all in one place. But if there’s only a couple they feel they’re wasting themselves. People feel their own potential by way of a diffuse excitement. They want to but they don’t use it. They just keep up the brightness until they feel tired.’ How to unlock Pandora’s box?
