je visite nos visiteurs

1) je suis bien d'accord confusément
2) j'aime bien l'image du the books parce que c'est de la musique et que c'est vert
3) là je n'ai pas d'idées
4) moi aussi je suis 100% top-shop
5) je suis stupide mais ça me donne envie d'acheter
heureusement j'ai pas l'argent

le justus köhncke est très réussi dans son organisation de la déception, un disque retenu et très fin en même temps que surjoué, même la guitare parait virtuosement ennuyée de sa platitude r*ck, un disque de déguingandé aux yeux bleus avec des machines seules
voilà c'est tout

les fans de billy bragg se posent aussi la question

j'ai toute ma vie cru que billy bragg était mort

Wild Man Fischer is to singing what Jean Dubuffet was to painting. If the French master of Art Brut opened up an entire genre of expression for artists not "legitimated" by society, Larry Fischer is the archetype of the Singing Outsider. Those who search beyond the anecdotal gossip can piece together the life of this most unusual vocalist. During his formative years, he displayed symptoms of what was almost certainly Tourette's syndrome. Raising her family by herself after the sudden death of her husband, Larry's mother struggled to control her eccentric and cagily hyperactive son. Perhaps this whole saga can be traced back to the influence of Paul Anka. For it was in 1961 that Larry, inspired by his favorite pop stars, began to sing songs of his own devising in a loud voice, accompanied by sudden joyous bursts of wordless ululation and strange clucking noises in his throat. Banished to his room, he sang even louder while continuing to invent his own kind of music. In 1962, Larry was thrown out of school for singing in class. Unable to rationalize her son's behavior, and scandalized as Larry's expulsion extended the problem past the privacy of their home, his mother had him committed in 1963 to Camarillo State Hospital, where he was diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic.

This type of incarceration was a not uncommon response to nonconformity during the 1950s and early '60s -- Lou Reed's folks had him subjected to electroshock treatments for cross-dressing and acting rebellious. Mrs. Fischer's son was an easy target, for he had developed a singing style largely based upon the art of screaming. Released in 1964, Larry continued to sing whenever and wherever possible. He appeared on Sorrento Beach, performing an original song about Sorrento Beach, then ran away as the public applauded. He showed up at many talent shows and was spotted by Solomon Burke, who took Larry on tour with him. It was Burke who dubbed him "Wild Man Fischer." Unfortunately, Larry was still living at home. Increasingly frightened by her 20-year-old son's behavior and distressed at the company he kept, his mother had him committed once again to the psychiatric hospital in 1965. He was re-released the following year, but any problems he might have had were certainly exacerbated by these attempts at mental health conditioning.

For Larry Fischer, sudden notoriety arrived in the years 1967 and 1968. He appeared at talent shows in clubs like the Troubadour and the Red Velvet. He met Phil Spector and tried unsuccessfully to get the producer to agree to furnish him with a "Wall of Sound." It was around this time that Fischer opened up for Iron Butterfly at the Whisky A Go Go and for Bo Diddley at the Experience. His steady gig was to stand on the streets of Hollywood and sing his original songs for spare change. The turning point came when Frank Zappa noticed him in performance both on-stage and outside on the Sunset Strip. Soon Fischer was appearing with the Mothers of Invention, and in 1968 Zappa produced an entire double LP called An Evening With Wild Man Fischer. The clearest audible example of Larry displaying a classic vocal trait of Tourette's syndrome is a sudden outburst, which occurs during "The Story of the Taster" on side three of this album. Larry had always been wired differently than most people, and his experiences at Camarillo followed by a fairly sudden rise to fame in an environment where he was often jeered at caused him to develop paranoid and somewhat manic tendencies, which have disrupted his life ever since. His friendship and professional relations with Zappa ended abruptly following some sort of violent disruption inside the Zappa family home during an argument over royalties.

The next few years were rather bleak for Fischer. He performed, uninvited, at UCLA in 1969, and toured Idaho in 1971. Another important milestone was reached in 1975 when Fischer recorded a 45-rpm single advertising a small music store called Rhino Records. He thus became the very first artist to appear on the emerging Rhino record label. In 1977 Fischer, backed by the Plastic Rhino Band, brought out his second album, Wildmania. He toured the Midwest at this time, performing briefly in Michigan. In 1980, he met the songwriting and producing team of Barnes & Barnes. Together they created Pronounced Normal, described by Bill Mumy as "a great record that told the tale of the inner spirit without humiliating him."

In 1981, a Wild Man Fischer music video was shown on MTV, while the singer was lodging at an endless succession of hotels in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bakersfield, Long Beach, Burbank, and San Diego. During the year 1983, Larry collaborated with Barnes & Barnes on a third Rhino LP, Nothing Scary, issued the following year. In 1986, Fischer performed at the Massachusetts College of Art. He also recorded a duet with Rosemary Clooney, who became his friend after hearing his soul-baring opus "Oh God Please Send Me a Kid (I Can Buy It a Doughnut Every Day)." During the late '80s, Fischer performed at a comic book convention in San Diego. Throughout the 1990s he steadily withdrew from the music business and struggled hard just to survive. In 1999, Rhino released the complete Rhino recordings of Wild Man Fischer. The Fischer King, a limited-edition double CD available exclusively over the Internet, sold out quickly and has since become a scarce collector's item.

Recent reports indicate that Larry continues to work menial jobs in order to get by. He values his privacy for obvious reasons, given the fact that throughout his life nearly everyone -- whether friend, family, or total stranger -- has either deliberately stigmatized him or has ultimately failed to help him heal his own soul. A more fortunate artist with similar traits is Shane Fistel, a gifted painter and sculptor from Toronto, who has been publicly honored for transmuting his own nervous condition -- extreme Tourette's syndrome -- into a very personal body of work. Lawrence Wayne Fischer deserves that kind of respectful recognition.

Un problème de boisson

Moi aussi, comme un Guy, j'écoute Der Durstige Mann :

Im winter whiskey, im sommer pernod

(en hiver, du Whisky, en été, du Pernod,
je soupçonne ces fridolins de s'alcooliser sur nos plages
- on trouve du Pernod en Germanie ???)

PROBLÈME : on boit quoi, maintenant, au printemps
(d'autant que les mêmes ont aussi écrit le mémorable "Bier Nix Gut" -Bière Pas Bonne)
dans l'attente, je tourne au café
c'est encore le matin, le dimanche

Bonne semaine

je souhaite
