Sounds great. Is there a link to buy the Alvarius B re-release? I couldn't figure it out from the official site.

Charles Gocher singing a good ol' song, and then drunkenly and hilariously riffing about a minimalist, war-cripled novelty organist for 8 minutes. Genious.

Some Web site called Blurt Online has been running a series of "advice to young musicians" statements from well-known artists. Patti Smith, Bob Mould, Ian Mackaye, etc. have taken part.

Here's Alan Bishop's contribution:

Unfortunately, due to overwhelming odds, I will assume this eager young musician is male. Specific musical details would be discussed depending on the circumstances but they are not important. What follows are the important issues:

- Lose the fear, get the confidence. Be a leader, not a follower.

- Forget about "thinking outside the box", crush and completely destroy the box.

- Get interested in everything and do it now.

- Find another way other than music to make money and never depend on music to make you a living. Don't become dependent upon others. Pull your own fucking weight. Don't go into debt.

- Question everyone and everything and never allow anyone to push you away from your direction.

- You know little of the way the world works so get fucking busy and find out what you don't know instead of thinking you already know it. There's nothing more pathetic than a 20-something "know it all." You've been fundamentally lied to since birth, so wake up.

- To attain any form of greatness, you must be able to risk all relationships you may encounter and place them immediately behind your work as a priority. So tell that pretty little girl that you are busy 24/7 and when you have time for her, you'll call her. Repeat the last sentence twenty times every morning when you wake up for a year. On second thought, do it for the rest of your life.

- Speaking of risks, take them as much as possible until it becomes extremely comfortable to take them. That way, you'll never have to take a risk again.

- Don't give in to your peers. Most of your peers don't know jack fuck about anything. Create your peers instead of settling for the peers you've been dealt. There are rarely more than a dozen people in any city who have a clue, therefore there are 12 people you need to know, so go find them. Most of the rest around you have been socially engineered to be fucking morons who will compete for your attention and energy, and how you handle these cretins will be key in determining your future.

- Never trust anyone in the music business, EVER.

- Forget about becoming "famous." If you actually do something interesting and do it well and for long enough, then someday you'll wake up and be infamous which is superior to becoming "famous."

- Compose/write your own material, record everything you do and become organized.

- Be aggressive but not overtly aggressive.

- Don't be an asshole, a thief or a junkie.

- Buy your own fucking cigarettes and don't be a fucking leech.

- Become a master of drugs and alcohol; do not let them master you.

- Don't be a flake. Show up on time, every time.

- Start traveling as soon as possible.

- When you think your plate is full, move to a bigger fucking kitchen and learn how to manage 100 plates simultaneously. The more you push yourself, the more you'll be able to deal with, and when those around you begin more and more to resemble infants, you'll have unlimited options.

And then the world will become your kitchen.

Now get to work.

Excellent list. #7 stings a little, but I've definitely witnessed both extremes on that front.

I can't stop listening to this. So mundane and absurd in the best way.

The other night I "slow-danced" to this deeply poignant, touching version of an all-time classic love song with my lady friend.

We decided it was "our song."

So beautiful. I get verklempt just thinking about it.

They're definitely growers. I originally found them boring, but they grew on me. I just got a cassette of Horse Cock Phepner in the mail today.

Not crap in any way, shape or form!

Their version of 'Lambada' is AMAZING.

FYI/heads up:

Alan Bishop has an album coming out on Abduction in March. He recorded it in Egypt, with a full band of Egyptian musicians. It's not going to be under the Alvarius B name. The band has a name, but the band's name is in Arabic and I'm not sure how it's spelled. It's going to be released under the band's name.

Alan told me there is going to be a version of the album with him singing all the songs in English on CD. There's also going to be a version on CD with one of his bandmates singing all the songs in Arabic. This version is going to be distributed in the Middle East. The vinyl is going to have both English and Arabic versions on double-LP.

Just wanted to adress this post in this thread. I just (finally, I'm glacial like that) got 330,003 Crossdessers off of Get Back. It's the real deal. This record is out there.

EDIT: Dante's Disneyland Inferno too.

The label releasing it (Get Back) is sketchy. I wouldn't be surprised if this was an unauthorized reissue. There's no mention of it on the official SCG site.

I certainly could use that record in my collection, but my first search returned a webstore selling it for 70 dollars, sans shipping. Does it go for a human amount anywhere?

It's a triple-LP in pretty elaborate packaging. 70 dollars is the going rate.

This album (and Dante's Disneyland Inferno) has been re-issued on vinyl twice now. First time was on the Locust label in 2001/02. Get Back re-issued it again a couple years ago.

You could make a good case that Crossdressers and Dante's are the SCG's artistic peak. They both came out in the same year, which boggles the mind.
