08/27: Take Us Away Mr. Indian and TIME

Category: Rotter and Friends | Posted by: Team | Add comment
FRIENDS.

Time for one of the greatest turquoise'd horizons I can unleash to you. Many years ago my brothers from Small Town Talk put this jam on their killer dublab session "The Acid Eden" episode. Well as usual, i spilled coffee everywhere, fell on the floor, levitated with joy, and to this day used the song as a major frown remedy/beam maker. As much as I tugged their denim sleeves we could not find the digital file or full album anywhere. There is little to no information on the now passed on Mr. Indian aka Eugene Bialy whose psyche Paul Williams esque eagle chant rock went under the monker Mr. Indian and Time and released 2 albums, Morning Glory and Eagle Chanter. This is, the best. Enjoy this song and these amazing pictures of the band rocking out in a ..um..gymnasium??? Thanks Coach Largo for fulfilling some wonder...

Turbo Iced coffee cups are raised today to the fabulous chief R + F collaborators Myriah and Nadia of NIGHTWOOD, who were featured in the NY Times today as they launch their 4,000 square foot Pop-Up shop today in Brooklyn. Check out the article HERE.
nightwood The design wizards have an opening tonight at the space from 6-9 pm-do check out the wonder and perhaps even the R + F six foot wide "Wild Horses" burn piece we made for the world, which is chock full of mind melting furniture, clouds, caves, pyramids, and teepee heaven. I first had pupil hearts with their work from these amazing salvaged wood credenzas they made for my friend Keith and later "Rotter Corner". The look of "wood filled with jams" is a true calm sight to behold. Our cluttered spaces below and another interior to share..

ALSO...and as well.. don't miss this Thursday's screening of POMEGRANATES "Like A Phoenix From The Ashes" at Lincoln Center celebrating the release of Pomegranates, a compilation of Persian folk, funk, and psychedelia curated by Mahssa Taghinia.Some formal info on the evening/flick below.

Finders Keepers/B-Music U.S. and Film Comment Summer Meltdown team up here to present a rare screening of the full-throttle, genre defining granddaddy of Ozploitation cinema for one night only. Sandy Harbutt's 1974 Australian Biker-Psych auteur cult classic takes key ingredients from across the exploitation cinema palette and concocts a heady brew of Bikesploitation, Drugsploitation and Satanic Cultism for this celluloid milestone, which proceeded the likes Mad Max (while donating half of its cast) by half a decade.

The evening will be bookended with the U.S. debut of Finders Keeper's Andy Votel's Cock Diesel biker-psych DJ/VJ club night which blends vintage global motorcycle-music (Global Cock Rock / Bikers OSTS / Full Throttle Fuzz / Power-Bike-Psych) with custom built footage from a life-long library of international biker b-movies. For this one-off event Andy will be joined by WFMUs Brian Turner and Mahssa Taghinia (B-Music U.S). Take The Trip.

SEE you there soldiers.
