The Holy Modal Rounders

A few anagrams based on one of my all-time favorite bands:

moderns dull hooray
enormous hydra doll

and of course:

"horrendous am lloyd"

; ) haha

no joke, this is crazy syncronicity!

last night i was watching this video about the f u g s from Swedish teevee,

HMR's were involved with the Fugs, i got turned on to the Holy Modal Rounders by hearing their song, "bound to lose", which i rank as among one of my favorite all time songs, i was lucky to have recorded it on tape off latenight radio, the Georia Tech radiostaion is really great, i had to go out & get the Indian War Whoop, they're a great band, i love them!

diggin' yr anagrammit series!

Oh my! I was even lucky to see the HMR play live, in Copenhagen in 1972. They played free every night for a week in Christiania, the Free Town (with Sam Shepard playing the drums and falling off his stool all the time). I've seen everybody--or I at least I got their license! Also, I saw Stampfel and Weber play in New York one night, musta been 1999 or so. I went to talk to them and asked about the Christiania gig. Their memories of it, if possible, were even more vague than mine. It was the times, ya know.

i actually have a small trinket from Christiania, a pot stash box, my friend is a carpenter & somehow he got hooked up with this guy from Denmark who hired him to fly over & remodel a house, it was kind of funny because my friend didn't realize everything would be metric & it nearly drove him crazy!

me? i prefer the metric system, it's much more logical & easier to use than fractions.

ever heard of Group 1850?
from the Netherlands, their early music was totally wild psychedelia,

but i would have really loved to see Pärson Sound playing live, i dig that eastern influenced raga drone w/ trippy electronics, great stuff.
