LORD LITTER - "Herman, Come Rock Me"

 I started trading tapes back in about 1987, and one of the first international artists I came in contact with was a funny guy in Berlin named Lord Litter. It was quite a process before the internet came along, and sometimes it took weeks for mail to pass back and forth. I had also been trading tapes with a number of talented people like Don Campau, John Bartles, Al Perry, Mark Hanley, etc etc, so I decided to do what a lot of other people were doing and that was to ask all my new friends if they would be willing to contribute to a compilation tape of various artists I wanted to make.

If I made the tape today, the cover would have looked more like something like this! 

If I recall correctly, every person I contacted agreed to it, but I think it was only Lord Litter who created a song especially for that tape, because that's the kind of guy he was! The song was called "Herman, Come Rock Me," and even though we never talked about it, I think it was a play on words, and the name of our band Hermanos Guzanos.

As far as I know, Lord Litter never used this song on any of his many other tapes, so here you go, in the typical Lord Litter style of the time with the good Lord playing all the instruments and vocals with the phenomenal Thomas Tit on the drums.

R.I.P. Jörg Dittmar aka Lord Litter (2024)

 
It's with a heavy heart that I have to announce that my good friend Jörg Dittmar, aka Lord Litter, has passed away from a longstanding bout of COPD. He fought it hard for a long time, but it finally got the best of him.
I've known Lord Litter since 1988, and without him, this blog wouldn't exist.
Over the past 35 years or so, Lord Litter has continuously done more to promote independent music on this planet than anybody else I know of.
He was not only a DJ, but was also a musician and a person who supported peace and freedom for the whole world. He will be sorely missed.
At least his radio shows will be preserved on the Internet Archive forever.
Because of this situation, I doubt I will continue this blog, as Lord Litter was my biggest supporter, and the one who always encouraged me to continue. 
It's a sad day! The world has lost a great man and a truly unique person!

REV TOM FROST - "Cosmos Sauvage" (2024)

 
Rev Tom Frost has put another notch in his proverbial musical belt titled "Cosmos Sauvage," and it's my pleasure to announce it was just released today, and to make it easy....
 
The world and the universe itself is indeed in chaos, and if you need a reminder, it might as well be fun!
You can listen to the whole thing for free on the good Rev's Bandcamp page, but if you really want to try and do something good for the world, then purchase a copy of the CD or buy the tracks.
And while you're there, check out Tom's massive list of other releases.
I say do it today, because who knows if there will be a tomorrow, but then again, surely they wouldn't blow up the world on 420, that just wouldn't be right!

THE 4-TRACK CASSETTE UNDERGROUND - Richard Chon (1990)

Here's a cool article that was in the April 22, 1990 Bakersfield Californian about "The 4-Track Cassette Underground." Rather than have a picture of us, the author Richard Chon used a picture of himself.

 
Interesting article but unfortunately it didn't help further our musical career.
