8/10 … Toccata Electronica is possibly the most stunning bootleg of Kraftwerk ever ‘released’. Comprising of rare and different remixes of many well known Kraftwerk songs. This bootleg first surfaced in 1995 as a CD with professional looking packaging and high quality audio. Different pressings including differing artwork and CD labels are in circulation however the front cover is usually the one shown here above…

9/10 … So there’s a street called Wisteria Lane, in Fairview in the fictional Eagle State, and there lived 4 desperate housewives. One was a hot tempered Italian (Lynette), one was a Trump voting bible thumping stick up her ass housewife (Bree), the third a psychotic dipping her nose in everything that’s not her business (Susan) and should be euthanized for societies well being. Last but not least we have the whore (Gabrielle) who does everything for money, clothes and jewelry. She has an affair with a underage gardener, but have no problems telling other who have affairS that what they do is wrong…

6/10 … I have to be honest, I’m not a disco fan. It’s one of the few music styles that I have never got into. For me, the music usually is too simple, kind of feels like it’s made to be sold with a McDonalds menu. It lacks soul! So with that said, I probably shouldn’t review this kind of release, but hey, the music is made to old school porn, of course it then got my attention. And I kind of like it, but I have the same problems with this as with other disco releases, although this one being a darker kind of disco. But it’s again, too simple and have no real identity and again, soul. I prefer his “Mind Warp” (1982) record. So I will not buy this one, but if someone puts it on, I will not throw things at them either.

7/10 … A real slow burn of a drama TV show, with nice slow character build up. Akili McDowell in the main lead as David is really good. But although I really enjoy the show and will watch the next episode, I can’t shake the feeling that something is missing, some extra dimension to the whole storyline…

8,5/10 … The show ties together several families and peoples destinies, and I like to follow them all. One of my favorite actor, Brandons (Jason Mitchell) adventure into the food business, the adolecent friends Kevin (Alex R. Hibbert), ‘Papa’ (Shamon Brown Jr.) and Jake (Michael Epps). The traumatized war veteran Ronnie (Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, or the obsessed-by-sneakers highly potent Emmett (Jacob Latimore) … the list goes on. It takes a smaller dive in the 3rd season when one of the main characters disappers from the show, but it kind of picks up when the main crime story through the hole season is introduced to the show…

I want to highlight a prison work song, and I chose one of my favourite “Rosie”. It was recorded in 1947, but released on vinyl for the first time in 1958. All credits to those men from Mississippi State Penitentiary’s Parchman work camp who were recorded singing this song. Thanks also to Alan Lomax for collecting this song, as he have done with his many field recording. I can really hear the blood, sweat and pain from these men, and a not such a far fetched hunch is that several of them where innocent.

On August 28, 1955, while visiting family in Money, Mississippi, 14-year-old Emmett Till, an African American from Chicago, is brutally murdered for allegedly flirting with a white woman four days earlier.  His assailants—the white woman’s husband and her brother—made Emmett carry a 75-pound cotton-gin fan to the bank of the Tallahatchie River and ordered him to take off […]

Religious countries are so fantastic, you’ll get other people telling you how to live your life and with who, shame you for any sexual urges you have before marriage, throw you into prison if you claim that the invisible sky daddy might not exist and oh, force you to marry your rapist.

50 years ago, Italy was rocked by one woman’s courageous efforts to challenge the country’s treatment of rape victims — the lessons of which are sadly still relevant…

9/10 … By 1976, Herbie Hancock was a true rock star. He had established himself as a huge talent during his Blue Note career in the 1960s before joined the legendary second Miles Davis Quintet with Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams. That in turn led to Filles de Kilimanjaro, In a Silent Way, and Bitches Brew, and the rock and jazz worlds melded into a delicious fusion cocktail…
