Ah yes, I wondered how the charges work. I guess it makes sense that they update in batches rather than continuously as that would be a lot of work. Cheers discogs expert!

@john eden - you have been good on discogs so far so can I ask a question? We sold a copy on discgos the other day so I thought that the record of sales and stuff (where it says "last sold" and "median price" and so on) would update automatically but it doesn't, why is that? I mean presumably discogs complie that information for most releases, it can't be down to the seller, or do I have to register the sale somewhere for that info to change?

I think it updates after you’ve paid your fees to Discogs. Otherwise, in theory, you could create a fake profile and “buy” a load at an inflated price, generate real sales based on the inflated price, then cancel the fakes before paying fees.

Nice little review type thing here...
My copy of Jaguar No Me's Misekake LP landed a little while ago. Full disclosure, I'd have bought it anyway cos Rich and Liza are friends and I make a point of supporting good endeavours by good people when I can.
Fuck me though - it's flat-out amazing. I waited til I got the vinyl before giving it a proper listen despite having the files because I'm weird like that - I suppose we all are a bit. Anyway, although it's had to take a back seat occasionally when I've had something to review, it's been a pretty much constant listen when work has allowed. Impossible to pigeon-hole, endlessly inventive and incredibly rewarding.
If you haven't given it a listen yet, I wholeheartedly urge you to do so. It's fucking brilliant.

I did, about a week back! Then took me some time to get the speakers set up in the new house. It sounds good! I've only given it a spin last night. The cassette's a bit lo-fi but it's appropriate, I can always hear the hi-fi on the computer anyway!

Oh good, that's good news, I was actually afraid it was lost in the post so that's a relief. Gotta say, I dunno about the tapes cos that's all Taishi, I hope it's all ok quality and everything... like the packaging etc?

There is an article here about the band, album and record label of the year on the blog It's Psychedelic Baby (I think that's meant to be a phrase one might actually say to describe something, rather than a young child below the age of a toddler who is glowing in various bright colours and giving you some weird visuals)

https://www.psychedelicbabymag.com/2020/12/jaguar-no-me-taishi-nagasaka-interview.html

Let me know what you think of the really in-depth interview and remember that the record will make a great stocking filler for the psychedelic baby in your family.

Kinda funny, I go to the PO to send a record, but, cos Portugal is so badly hit by the virus and stuff they've brought in new rules to send packages. Woman at the PO says it's too much for her English to explain and it's definitely too much for my Portuguese, so she phones her husband who speaks perfect English, he starts asking about the package, I say it's a record, he says "ooh, really, I'm into records" and he asks me what kind of thing it is and he says "Ooh Japanese psych" and then he starts telling about how 25 years ago he brought one of Acid Mothers Temple to play in Portugal - this is all on speakerphone as the queue gets longer and longer. Seemed like a nice guy. Took ages to send the package, by the time I left there were literally thirty people queuing out of the door and down the street... gonna be perona non grata in this town if I'm not already.

Fuck. I know a similar story of a guy who got framed for murdering his own mother in order for a multi generational sexual abuse riddled family to take the heat off themselves because it was becoming too risky having her and the son around. It was actually them who did it, protecting themselves against her slipping up, as she'd suffered a stroke and was starting to slip into dementia, cracking under the pressure living with all the lies she'd had to carry her whole life and having a son run wild who she herself had abused and wasn't quite right in the head due to her own childhood trauma. The real karma cycle. Passing it on. Sweet as pie if you ever met her, but a bit uncanny valley too. It's an incredibly complex and tangled affair. The family actually arranged to have him bumped off and no doubt will still be plotting it some wy or how. Sadly for him the whole trauma of abuse in his own childhood led to him doing some weird incest shit and developing serious mental issues of his own when he was a kid that were never addressed properly, even though his mother was professional in the field: a teacher for children with behavioural difficulties. But she couldn't risk the family getting blown up, and inevitably her herself. All this actually made it all the more easy for the family to paint an image and smear (some of which is of course valid. He did plenty of fucked up shit. if only it had been dealt with in a timely fashion) to hide their own tracks because of how fucked the son had become. Oh yeah, and of course it's imperative that they make sure he's seen as a compulsive liar and lost on drugs and all that. Cos its not like you get to be that fucked up for free, knamean? But the funny thing is, one of his cousins, well get this, when he was caught for the incest thing when he was 14, his mother said 'look you better make sure you don't end up like Ronny.' 'Who's Ronny?' he asked. 'He's your Uncle T's son.' 'Why is this the first time I ever heard of him?' 'He said that his dad molested him as a kid and was sent away ever to return.' Don't forget this is at a moment when he's basically been excommunicated from the family already. He said 'whaaat? Is it true?' his mother took a somber tone and like she was reciting a hollow mantra said 'Ronny was a liar.' and no further discussion was allowed. Cut to 20 years later and no proper treatment or diagnosis has been given. And a of course there's a wake of destruction left in the path. But he gets called a paedo, a psycho, a murderer and everything nowadays. Can't live a normal life. Even has a daughter. Fucking sad. Definitely relate with the persona non grata there @IdleRich

And its one of them, he's tarnished. Beyond redemption really. But yet he knows the truth, and one cousin of his also confirmed a lot of the suspicions. She'd been abused to and then found out from several other relatives they had been too. Heavily involved with the Catholic Church and all that. Dark stuff. Would make for a pretty depressing book.

But hey, on the bright side I still talk to him and the amazing thing is, purely based on the strength of never letting the family mind games sow seeds of doubt in his head with all the gaslighting, he's still fucking here. Trying to live a life. Trying to become a better person. Nobody wants to see that happen of course. And in fact one of the sick things is so many try to provoke him into becoming what they project onto him when he knows deep down that while he is an utter fucking mess who's made a list of mistakes long enough to fill a book, he still has more love in his fucking heart that most of the dead inside cunts he's surrounded by on a daily basis virtue signifying what wonderful upstanding citizens they all are. The great schauschpiel of life innit.

Anyway yeah, totally get where you're coming from @IdleRich

Oh yeah and don't ge started on the mess with his daughter. The mother knew all about all of the above long before she was pregnant. Would fuck with his head non stop including calling him a paedo, but then goes ahead and has his baby?

I mean..

14yo is a bit young to be an actual paedo and he never did it again. But to have a child with someone you think that about and often use to fuck with their heads with. Well one day he snapped. They faught. Physical. It was after years and years of nurse ratchet treatment and then one day she call him it again after slapping him in the face 3 times as hard as she could and we'll, yeah, that doesn't help his cause too much either.

I know what most of you are thinking though, probably better out out of his misery, right?

Oh and the other thing is he's a master manipulator so he made up this massive and intricate story which you've only heard 5% of which he's been consistent in telling for nearly 10 years, so it probably was him who did it and the family are actually all really lovely people.

As you were.

Another mention here.....


Khruangbin continued to channel world music through a trident of psychedelia, soul and funk with Mordechai, quite possibly their most impressive album yet, while former Fat White Family bassist Taishi Nagasaka released an under-the-radar gem of startling psychedelic punk, Misekake, under the guise Jaguar No Me.
