In Las Vegas, around 1999 – 2000, at the Sound Barrier record store / punk sanctuary I had been privy to see Wesley Willis perform on his Casio keyboard. Needless to say, he rocked it like a magic kiss. He rocked it like a hurricane.
He had his giant binder full of songs, which he let me look through after his set, really funny and amazing songs in there, so cool he let me look through it, too.
During his set, which was almost all new songs, I grabbed a flyer and a pen and wrote down the more amazing / funny titles. I wish I wrote down the whole set, but it’s too late for that now.
Here they are:
Suck Peanuts off a white man’s dick
Funnier than Peanut Butter on a Yellow Ball
Michael Jackson – which is a classic and was requested by a fan, Wesley finally gave in, after a prolonged cursing about Mr. Jackson.
My buddy Joe (aka JD Power) & I just kicked out this labor of love. Come & get it, let us know what you think. A sure fired job creator economy fixer, or apocalyptic nightmare.

If you’re into dirty blues folks swam rhythms, audio experiments, field records, Thai elephants orchestras, 6 year old experimental school hip hop groups and a whole wealth of history and insight to these recordings, you’ve got to check out Dave Soldier’s website, it’s a literal treasure chest of music and audio experiments he’s worked on.
I always try and check out this station while I am waiting around. I can stream station on my iPhone, and drain my battery. Anyways, every time I tune into WFMU, it’s always something different and always RAD! This time is was the Three Chord Monte show with Joe Belock, a nice mixture of old garage rock and surf. Where else can you hear the Trashmen for crying out loud. Check out WFMU. Stream live or dig into their archives on your computer, you won’t be disappointed.
A little self promotion never hurt anyone, right. I just signed up to bandcamp.com. Looks like a pretty straight forward website for sharing and selling your own music. Just what I need. The only drawback is you have to upload each track to an album one at a time, but who cares.
