Now, none of us at the Trickledown listen to any gospel (mostly indie, prog metal, fusion, some hip hop) but one of us is on a downtempo and broken beat kick and heard this on the radio, pretty nice!
Dorothy Ashby, Detroit-born 70s jazz funk harp and koto player and singer extraordinaire. Here’s one of her great songs, Myself When Young, replete with flute, strings, koto, bass, drums, percussion, great vocals, etc. The first part is a killer break too.
Dorothy Ashby–Myself When Young
Dorothy Ashby–Soul Vibrations
Dorothy Ashby–Windmills of Your Mind
The shootout at the end of Resivoir Dogs is totally copied from the shootout in the liquor store in Repo Man (I can’t find video of it on Youtube, but it’s right before the sequence in the video above). Basically in both films you have like five people all pointing guns at each other sort of in checkmate…then they all start shooting, exact same arrangement. And the glowing briefcase in Pulp Fiction carrying a radioactive device or nuclear bomb is a total homage to the glowing car with a radioactive device or aliens in the trunk in Repo Man.
Also copies the part where this one repo man is playing him soul music, Tarantino uses that in Jackie Brown movie, also influenced by the lady repo office worker. AND Repo Man is a total LA period movie like Quentin Tarantino always does. David Lynch also copied the scene of Otto visiting his parents who are watching TV in the scene in I think Lost Highway where the guy visits his parents and they are just watching TV ignoring him pretty much.
Camron: Amber Lamps video/song
The whole Bay Area/Oakland AC Transit bus fight between Epic Beard Man and another bus rider, and people’s fascination with the calm mysterious bystander now nicknamed “Amber Lamps” is a huge Internet phenomenon. I’m not even going to link to the videos, so many of the comments on the videos on Youtube are hugely racist, it’s very disturbing. Rapper Camron has sampled the injured party’s request “bring an ambulance” in his new song “Amber Lamps,” which is pretty remarkable, showing just how far the meme has spread.
Must have been a great time for music fans in the 70s and 80s when you could depend on Robert Fripp to show up playing guitar on not only King Crimson but Brian Eno and David Bowie albums. I think he should do the same now, hiring himself out to play those 70s Robert Fripp solos (that Slash sometimes kind of mimicked on Appetite) for bands like Daft Punk etc. And yes, Robert Fripp, you should start soloing like this again, and playing on other people’s pop records.
