Joup Friday Album – Ambulance LTD

Ambulance LTD – self titled (TVT Records)

So the Magic 8-Ball has it, as Chester so eloquently discovered last week. Read more about his pick Clinic HERE. Great choice and really got me to thinking about digging back to the past a bit – to the year 2004. F@#k, has it really been 10 years? Yes, yes it has and yet as I listen to the YouTube clips I really think this group is still as fresh as it was then. So what I found on YouTube is a piecemeal playlist of the album but nearly every track is there as well as others from EPs. Heading to the Clinic? Maybe you should take Ambulance LTD.

The (Easter) Sunday Song Poem #8 ‘The Man Called Jesus’ By Unknown Artist

Jesus

The Sunday Song Poem has been absent for a little while, but I’m back.

“14 Later, he appeared to them as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.

15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Song Poems to all creation. 16 Whoever believes will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”

“Oh God. I was just a boy.

I saw him in my dream.

He said he wanted to play.

He opened me and I invited him and he came inside me.”

Joup Movie Review: ‘THE ZERO THEOREM’ Dir: Terry Gilliam

The-Zero-Theorum-logo-wide-560x282

On an empty Soho street, in the early afternoon of Tuesday, April 25th 2006, I suddenly spotted the oncoming Terry Gilliam, looking like a Sultan or Guru – sandal-clad feet propelling him delicately along in light, loose fitting, wackily patterned attire beneath the canopy of a bright yellow umbrella.

It wasn’t raining.

Your Fucked Up Childhood #2: ‘The Adventures of Mark Twain’ A.K.A ‘Comet Quest’

Satan

So I’m watching the Oscars Sunday night… Nah, I’m not. For one, I live in England, so I’d have to stay up until midnight just to see what ridiculously price-tagged fabric some people who ‘play pretend’ for a living decided to adorn their gorgeous torso-with before dawdling on a red pile tongue. Secondly, no one starts winning anything significant until 2am GMT, then it’s about 4 before I get to see the people I think are moderately deserving of an anthropomorphic golden dildo get overlooked.

Joup Friday Album #5 – The Jesus Lizard – Down

The Jesus Lizard - Down (Touch and Go) 1994

The Jesus Lizard – Down (Touch and Go) 1994

“My Legs,” said David Yow, lead singer of The Jesus Lizard, to a burst of unique laughter since gone from Chicago’s Wrigleyville Tap. Later that evening Yow, mummified in a skin of black electrical tape, took the stage next door at The Metro only to have his entire “skin” ripped off upon his first dive into the crowd. Yep, that’s Yow and this is your Joup Friday Album – Down, my favorite long player from The Jesus Lizard.

Your Fucked Up Childhood #1 Jack Prelutsky ‘The Ghoul’

The Ghoul

This Be The Verse
BY PHILIP LARKIN

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.
