NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #322 ~ 09-03-22]

Pictured: Link Wray.

Through rifts in the thatched roof, I can see the stars in the black of night. There are the sounds of night birds, the lone distant howls of creatures. Feral dogs? Wolves? Demons? No matter: those that fly and those that prowl, we are beneath the same stars, fleeting spirits born of and destined to the same almighty silence. The oldest word in Western literature, the word with which the Iliad began: rage. Yes. To speak is to rage against that silence whose winds are the only true poets. I think of Homer beholding these same stars. To rage, to kneel in wisdom before wisdom that is beyond wisdom. What does it matter? I grind out my cigarette. Another pipe for me, another for him. Another for me, another for him.

— Nick Tosches, The Last Opium Den.

Pictured: Ike Turner.

Entering at this point into the scheme of things was Isaiah Turner, an eighteen-year-old disc-jockey who had the shiniest suits in Clarksdale. He also had a band, in which he played piano and sometimes sang. He had seen Muddy Waters get out of Coahoma County and go on to make records – one of which, “Louisiana Blues,” was now becoming a hit – for Chess. He saw no reason why he, a far sharper dresser than that former cotton picker, should not do the same. As 1950 became 1951, Ike Turner was ready to start making records. There was only one problem. His lead singer, Johnny O’Neal, had recently been signed by King Records, and he had run off, leaving the rest of the band to stand around picking lint from their suits on the corner of Fourth Street. Ike looked, and he found Jackie Brenston. He told him to buy a shiny suit and write some songs; they were going to be stars.

Pictured: The MC5.

Dan Carlisle, a DJ at Detroit’s original underground radio outlet WABX-FM, witnessed many scenes of MC5 carnage, but one stands out in his mind: “Three Dog Night were in town to play the Grande Ballroom. During an interview they asked who else was on the bill. I said, ‘Well, it’s going to be tough for you tonight, guys, it’s the MC5.’ When they professed ignorance, I suggested we all go down to the gig a little early…Halfway through [the 5’s opening number] ‘Ramblin’ Rose’ the eyes of the California boys were bugging out and their ears were ringing…The MC5 really stormed through their set that night…the 5 played their closing piece and trashed the equipment…Then Three Dog Night had to come out with their little harmonies.”

Pictured: The Aural Exciters.

With Ze Records on a roll—“It was my best period creatively,” reminisces [ZE president Michael] Zilkha. “I felt like I was on autopilot” — Rob Partridge, a promoter in Island’s London office, came up with the idea that the label should release a compilation album. Containing six cuts from Material with Nona Hendryx, Was (Not Was), Cristina, Gichy Dan, Don Armando’s 2nd Ave Rhumba Band, and Coati Mundi, the result captured the strange coherence that underscored the label’s aesthetic of mayhem. Titled Seize the Beat (Dance Ze Dance) in the United States and Mutant Disco: A Subtle Discolation of the Norm in the United Kingdom, the result flaunted its miscreant credentials. “I used to say ‘a subtle dislocation of the norm,’ and they turned it into ‘discolation of the norm,’ ” remembers Zilkha. Interviewed by the New York Times in June, August Darnell flew the flag on intercultural transformation. “To me, the beauty of music is its possibilities for mutation. And that mutation represents a larger ideal: global coexistence.”

Pictured: Bootsy Colllins.

Now [James Brown] coaches his bass player, an aging, willowy, enigmatically silent black man named Fred Thomas, on the bass line: “Ding-dong, ding-dong.” Again, he emphasizes: “Flat. Flat. Hard.” Fred Thomas does his best to comply, though I can’t hear any difference. James Brown turns to me, urgently, and introduces me to Thomas. “It’s all about ‘Sex Machine,’” he says. “This man’s on more hits than any other bass player in history.” I nod. Of course, it will later occur to me that one of the most celebrated partnerships in James Brown’s career was with the future Parliament-Funkadelic bassist Bootsy Collins — and anybody who cares at all about such things can tell you that Bootsy was the bass player on “Sex Machine.” Fred Thomas was, in fact, Bootsy’s replacement, which is to say he’s been in the band since sometime in 1971. Good enough. But in this matter we’ve at least briefly entered what I will come to call the James Brown Zone of Confusion: James Brown now puts his arm around Fred Thomas. “We’re both cancer survivors,” he tells me gravely.

Since the Americans invented mass-produced, ready-to-wear fashion in the early twentieth century, a conservative approach to male clothing had been handed down from fashion house to chain store. As the Small Faces’ Ian McLagan remembers: ‘Burtons had three styles: small, medium and large.’ It also had three colours: black, brown and navy. In 1913, Giacomo Balla’s ‘Futurist Manifesto of Men’s Clothing’ had declared ‘WE MUST DESTORY ALL PASSEIST CLOTHES and everything about them which is colourless, funereal, decadent, boring and unhygienic.’ Mods were to make that modernist manifesto a reality: they introduced colour to male clothing for the first time since the Regency era of the early nineteenth century. It was fitting, therefore, that the most flamboyant Mod style was known as the Regency, displayed by the Kinks in March 1966 in publicity for ‘Dedicated Follower of Fashion’, their affectionate satire of a Carnaby Street dandy.

The slang term “funky” in black communities originally referred to strong body odor, and not to “funk,” meaning fear or panic. The black nuance seems to derive from the Ki-Kongo lu-fuki, “bad body odor,” and is perhaps reinforced by contact with fumet, “aroma of food and wine,” in French Louisiana. But the Ki-Kongo word is closer to the jazz word “funky” in form and meaning, as both jazzmen and Bakongo use “funky” and lu-fuki to praise persons for the integrity of their art, for having “worked out” to achieve their aims. In Kongo today it is possible to hear an elder lauded in this way: “like, there is a really funky person!—my soul advances toward him to receive his blessing” (yati, nkwa lu-fuki! Ve miela miami ikwenda baki). Fu-Kiau Bunseki, a leading native authority on Kongo culture, explains: “Someone who is very old, I go to sit with him, in order to feel his lu-fuki, meaning, I would like to be blessed by him.” For in Kongo the smell of a hardworking elder carries luck. This Kongo sign of exertion is identified with the positive energy of a person. Hence “funk” in black American jazz parlance can mean earthiness, a return to fundamentals.

Foppish effeminacy was a current in rock’n’roll from the beginning, most blatantly with Little Richard. But it was particularly pronounced in British pop. This came about partly because of a Tin Pan Alley tradition of gay managers with a flair for finding pretty boys whose non-threatening sexuality appealed to teenage girls. But it also had something to do with the art-school system, which infused the British rock scene with a bohemian laxness as regards appearance and sexual conduct. In his 1969 book Bomb Culture, Jeff Nuttall recalls the mid-sixties moment when art-school attitudes filtered into the beat-group scene: ‘Shoes were painted with Woolworth’s lacquer. Both sexes wore make-up and dyed their hair … “Kinky” was a word very much in the air. Everywhere there were zippers, leathers, boots, PVC, see-through plastics, male make-up, a thousand overtones of sexual deviation …’

There were also amusing touches, or what the Romans considered amusing. A jeweler who had sold some fake stones was sentenced to the arena. The wretched man was driven into the arena and a lion’s cage rolled out before him. While the jeweler fell on his knees and prayed for mercy, the door of the cage was pulled back — and out walked a chicken. The jeweler fainted from shock while the emperor had the heralds announce: “As the man practiced deceit, he has now had it practiced on him.” The jeweler was allowed to leave the arena alive. (This actually happened during the reign of the Emperor Gallienus in 250 A.D..)

Pictured: The Pretty Things.

The urgency in these mid-sixties songs is history itself: the need for this sound to exist right at that point. Groups like Them, Pretty Things, Who, Kinks were already the second generation of rock, but so caught up were they in the hurtle of the sixties, so fanatically committed to their second-hand sound, that they blast right through the inauthenticity and imposture. By the seventies and the third generation, a fatal layer of distance and detachment intervenes. Perhaps in [David Bowie’s] Pinups there is a submerged undercurrent of aggression towards ancestors who were somehow able to overcome their unrealness.
