Ray Manzarek and Michael McClure – The Piano Poems: Live From San Francisco

Buy Now!

Michael McClure is a Beat Generation poet, playwright and songwriter. Ray Manzarek is a founding member of The Doors, songwriter and music producer. Together they take their loyal fans on a musical mind expanding journey with their creations. Their collaboration was documented in the Oglio Home Video release “The Third Mind” and brought to life in this all new album of thought provoking poetry.

The Doors were influenced by the 1960s beatniks and that spirit continues with this collaboration. When asked “What’s the difference between Jim Morrison’s rock lyrics and a poem?” Ray responded that “There really is no difference between Jim’s poetry writings and his music lyrics.”

Jim Morrison introduced Michael McClure to Ray during the recording sessions for “Waiting For The Sun.” That fateful meeting is still bearing fruit today with “The Piano Poems: Live From San Francisco.”

Larry Kassin is featured on flute in 13 of the 14 tracks on this collection. Larry founded the internationally recognized Noe Valley Music Series in 1981, at the Noe Valley Ministry in San Francisco, California.

Oglio Records has released a soundtrack album ("Love Her Madly") and a DVD ("The Third Mind") with the legendary Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek. This latest release, a collaboration with Ray and poet Michael McClure entitled "The Piano Poems: Live From San Francisco", takes Ray's music to another dimension.

Michael McClure states:

On a cold, foggy night in San Francisco after a great Japanese meal, Manzarek and I stepped onto the stage and there were sparks of consciousness — the stage was on fire with poems and piano Improvisations. The symbiosis and the synergy made lights. Then Larry Kassin stepped up to join us with his jazz flute and Lou Judson was recording. This is a live album with its heart still beating — no tricks, gimmicks, or second takes. We are bringing together my poetry and Ray’s improvisations that shape my word-sounds into richer meanings: Piano Poems.

There’s no way to be without a politics or an antipolitics, no way to be without art, without anger and generosity, without laughter and kindness.

That’s the edge we’re whetting on this album.

—Michael McClure

Kurt Baker 4GB USB Cassette BackKurt Baker is a singer, songwriter and rock n' roll performer from Portland, Maine who has always gone by the famous saying "Have a Good Time All the Time". He is a founding member of the notable pop/punk outfit the Leftovers, who formed in 2002 and released many acclaimed records and toured all over North America and Europe. Kurt Baker's signature unique blend of ultra catchy Beach Boys/Beatles styled melodies under a relentless wall of high energy guitars and pounding rhythms have earned him the praise of Larry Livermore (founder of Lookout Records), Ben Weasel (Screeching Weasel) and Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup).

Kurt emerged as a solo artist with a "labor of love" solo EP, "Got It Covered", (2010 Oglio Records). Produced by Los Angeles based pop genius, Linus of Hollywood, "Got It Covered" featured Baker's take on some of his favorite Power Pop songs of the 70's and 80's and featured guest appearances from Kay Hanley (Letters To Cleo) and Adam Marcello (Katy Perry). Kurt's love of these classic songs all had one thing in common- "a key sense of melody.. and melody has always been the most important aspect of music to me. If you have a catchy hook in your song, you can do no wrong. I've always strived to write music that is catchy and fun.. that will be stuck in your head for hours after listening".

After a successful solo-tour of Europe in the fall of 2010, backed by Italy's best Power Pop band, The Radio Days, Baker focused on taking his solo act back to the USA. A brief stint of shows throughout the Midwest brought together a group of musicians featuring Mike Bryne (the Methadones), Wyatt Funderburk (Second Saturday), Geoff Useless (the Guts) & Craig Sala (Planeside), to make up the Kurt Baker Band.

Kurt Baker is a singer, songwriter and rock n’ roll performer from Portland, Maine who has always gone by the famous saying “Have a Good Time All the Time”. He is a founding member of the notable pop/punk outfit the Leftovers, who formed in 2002 and released many acclaimed records and toured all over North America and Europe. Kurt Baker’s signature unique blend of ultra catchy Beach Boys/Beatles styled melodies under a relentless wall of high energy guitars and pounding rhythms have earned him the praise of Larry Livermore (founder of Lookout Records), Ben Weasel (Screeching Weasel) and Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup).

Kurt emerged as a solo artist with a “labor of love” solo EP, “Got It Covered”, (2010 Oglio Records). Produced by Los Angeles based pop genius, Linus of Hollywood, “Got It Covered” featured Baker’s take on some of his favorite Power Pop songs of the 70’s and 80’s and featured guest appearances from Kay Hanley (Letters To Cleo) and Adam Marcello (Katy Perry). Kurt’s love of these classic songs all had one thing in common- “a key sense of melody.. and melody has always been the most important aspect of music to me. If you have a catchy hook in your song, you can do no wrong. I’ve always strived to write music that is catchy and fun.. that will be stuck in your head for hours after listening”

After a successful solo-tour of Europe in the fall of 2010, backed by Italy’s best Power Pop band, The Radio Days, Baker focused on taking his solo act back to the USA. A brief stint of shows throughout the Midwest brought together a group of musicians featuring Mike Bryne (the Methadones), Wyatt Funderburk (Second Saturday), Geoff Useless (the Guts) & Craig Sala (Planeside), to make up the Kurt Baker Band.

By January 2011, Baker had recruited longtime friends Josh Malia (The Taxis, Hi Fivin White Guys) and Kris Rodgers (Goodnight Process) into the fold. They soon returned to the studio to record the new “Rockin’ For A Living”, Kurt’s debut full-length solo album, due out October 25th 2011 on Oglio Records. As a special favor to Kurt’s European fans, “Rockin” For A Living” will be released as a limited-edition vinyl by Stardumb Records (Holland) and Torreznetes Entertainment (Spain). A tour of Europe has been booked as well as dates in the US to support the record.

When looking at what drives Kurt’s musical passion, he can pinpoint the second his life was changed by music. “The first record I ever loved was “Rubber Soul” by the Beatles. I must have been 5 years old when my uncle played me his cassette tape in his gigantic van as we drove through the rolling hills of Wisconsin. I’ll never forget the feeling that I felt when I first heard the opening chords of “Drive My Car” and the rockin’ shuffle of “The Word”.. even the melodic 12 string intro of Harrison’s “If I Needed Someone” hit me as something totally new and foreign. The songs in “Rubber Soul” just struck something in me.. it was exciting, and almost indescribable. I finally felt like I understood something.”

Quotes
“There are a couple of things I pride myself in, buy first is my ability to spot raw talent. The first time I met the Leftovers - goofy teens from Maine who drove ten hours just to play a free party in Queens - I knew they were the real thing. Kurt Baker's got an ear for pop melody that only comes along a few times in a generation, and a true love for the minutiae and history of rock 'n' roll. I can't wait to hear what he comes up with next.” - Jim Testa, Jersey Beat

“Kurt Baker is an amalgamation of all my favorite things. He’s got a biting vocal swagger (reminiscent of Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson), a comprehensive knowledge of classic pop music, a lovable Joey Ramone-esque personality and the songwriting chops of a man twice his age. I’m continuously excited by his creativity, positivity and prolificness.” - Linus of Hollywood

Rondo Brothers – Foreign Globester

Buy Now!

The Foreign Globester featuring Motion Man (3:15)

in Los Angeles lives a tribe of young jesters known as ADM, or All Destroyed Momentarily. They recorded and shared with us a song, which so inspired us in its freedom of consciousness that we built it upon, layer by layer. Diamond Jim played bass and flute. Ben Ellman of Galactic played saxophone. The Bastard Prince played the fast whishy-whishy drums and Daryl Palumbo did some turntablism. The Foreign Globester needed a calling card, and this was the perfect place. Also featured in the recording is a 1994 vintage pink Hello Kitty Microphone.

Tumbling Down featuring Motion Man (3:04)

A song that generated from many places. It once sat alone as a disco-jam, and a bass line on a different downbeat. It had the piano chords played by Diamond Jim, and some trumpets and horns recorded by the Jay N Bee Jazz band. Later the Bastard Prince added guitar, which in turn spurred Jim to play bass, and transmogrify the beatscape, and add the live drums. At this point the Foreign Globester, heartbroken after a failed affair with Mia Farrow, needed an outlet, a rhythm through which to share his sorrows. And the song was born.

Bohemian Grove featuring MC Lars & K-Flay (3:12)

This is a very mysterious place in Northern California where heads of state and business intersect. The song started out as a remix for fellow traveler Common, and formerly it had him rambling on nonsensically. But we always knew that there was a much darker core to the song. The Globester introduced us to two people he met in his travels, K Flay, and MC Lars, a Man, and a Woman. She had infiltrated the Bohemian Grove disguised as a bellboy, and absconded MC Lars, who was being held prisoner against his will for acts of intellectual bravery. She heard the track and wanted to use it to relate her perils, while Lars related the truth. Contains prodigious uses of Circuit Breaks breakbeats, red Kaoss pads, and Inspector Gadget synthesizers.

Roketship Flossin featuring Poach Stevens (3:21)

We all know what this means. This track was used in a Wu Tang Documentary called Rock Tha Bellz. Features a bizarre percussion mashup of snare drum sounds and reverse kick drums, and jungle noises. And circuit bent Japanese toy sounds. The Bastard Prince plays upon a 1932 Nylon string guitar once played by Django Reinhardt. The song also features a really interesting bridge. And an alien who goes by the name of Calmplecs, relating the story of his spaceship that he uses regularly, which is coveted by many other interstellar travelers. The Globester has little need for out-landers, but is acutely aware of their existence. He has proved and disproved their existence repeatedly, depending on who is asking.

You Got It. I Want It. featuring Motion Man & Madison (3:44)

Thanks to the little red Alesis keyboard that the Globester picked up in Morocco, this track has nice basslines and keyboard bits. This track started out as a tribute to the pure talent of Malibu rapper Shwayze, who was introduced to the Rondos at his record label in Los Angeles. But the track was too sexual, too breathy, too liquid for Shwayze. So we enlisted additional personnel – one of the Globesters female cohorts, a mad scientist witch doctress who calls herself Madison. Madison & The Globester realized they had common ground in gourmet espresso, Karate, Pilates, and Versace. The two of them tackle the evergreen subject of sexual tension between men and women. You Got It, I Want It.

Last Nite Ruled featuring Motion Man (2:46)

Some time ago the Rondo studio was visited by the legendary guitarist F Sean Martin of Hatebreed, who brought along an MC called Motion Man. A record called King Beast was recorded, including a track called Last Nite Ruled. Then one day, Diamond Jim was playing this amazing organ sound he found on a kick-ass synthesizer program called the “IMPOscar”. The organ produced a riff. The riff inspired a beat. The beat inspired a double-octave bass line tripled with a muted 67 Fender Stratocaster. The track came to life. And the only way to do it justice was to let the Foreign Globester re-record the vocals to Last Night Ruled at a much speedier tempo. And the world’s ultimate party song was born. The first hip hop funk song in a good while to feature a blazing synthesizer solo.

Legend Has It featuring Krazy Glue (3:28)

Krazy Glue, a NY based DJ, sent a brown paper package to the Rondo Brothers. It was this song on a CD. It was a beat and some scratching. The rondos added some piano, organ, and synthesizer bass via the Moog Voyager. The track came to life. The choir was booked for the choruses but was canceled when the Foreign Globester insisted on non-denomational singles only.

Tip Toe featuring Motion Man & Madison (3:41)

Occasionally even the Globester finds a need for solace, contemplation, peace. Written with a blond librarian in a monastery in northern Italy. Featuring a Hammond XB3 double leslie cabinet organ, 1958 Gretsch drums. Fender 1969 Precision Bass played in double octave form.

The Bigfoot featuring Poach Stevens (3:49)

A track that has lived on the Globester’s shelf for several years. It took a Bigfoot sighting by the Globester in Hendy Park, Northern California, to realize that the Bigfoot needed a song of his own. But – first, the Globester had to physically apprehend the Bigfoot and teach him English, by luring him into a lean-to trap with Necco Wafers. The Bigfoot fell for the ruse, and learnt English within a matter of months. He was then persuaded to stand in front of a microphone and retell his tale, and he chose this track for the telling, because in his words, it “made him feel greeeeeaat!”

Bikini Body featuring Motion Man & Latrice Barnett (3:50)

The Globester is on a quest, like all men, for love, when you really boil it down to the basic elements. Love, Sweet, Love. Ivan Malaguti helped with the beat on this nice buttery slow jam, and The Globester just turned in a photograph of his last lover and said “This One’s For You.” Strings inspired by the Black Eyed Peas. Guitars inspired by Kool & The Gang. Bass inspired by James Jamerson. Celeste inspired by Brian Wilson.

Cult Leader featuring MC Lars & Beefy T (3:54)

Ace lyrical anarchist MC Lars was enlisted by the Globester to tackle this weighty topic. Lily Allen was the original singer of the song, but she decided to get more to the point and write a song straight to George Bush entitled “Fuck You”. Harsh politics aside, her role left an empty hole in the track that could only be filled by a mysterious man known as Beefy T. The Globester stepped aside and let these two have the song, as he prefers to stay outside of religious quests. This track was recorded in a small rural village in Northeastern Ohio, overlooking a pond, using a miniature keyboard and Digidesign C1 Gate/Compressor.

 

FOREIGN GLOBESTER BIO

The Foreign Globester was created over a year long period where bay area MC Motion Man paid numerous visits to the Rondo Brothers studio in San Francisco.

The three had discovered a mutual love of wine, women and song. The Hennessy flew freely and the menthol cigarettes put the sweet sweet aroma of minty tobacco into the studio air.

A whole host of songs were recorded.. bit by bit. One at a time. One per session. Motion Man would pace the studio floor, pen and computer in hand, while the Rondos would play bass and guitar and craft drumbeats, waiting for Motion Man to announce he was ready and jump into the vocal booth.

One beautiful spring day in 2009, the Rondos were playing a particularly juicy track for Motion, who got extra inspired. He didn't say much, but he started singin, and swayin, and cuttin loose.

And when he got to the chorus of the song, he said "Are you omnipotent, or too irrelevant, i'm gonna get you, the foreign globester".

And when that was done, Diamond Jim turned around and said "That's our man - That's the record".

Excitedly, they finished off the song - and the Globester was born.

The cards were embossed, the guests were invited: MC Lars, Madison, Poach Stevens, Beefy T. A cast of characters from all different backgrounds and shapes and sizes.

And all the tracks suddenly made sense. The worldview of the Foreign Globester.

And thus, the story begins.

+++

RONDO BROTHERS BIO

The rondo brothers are the bastard prince and diamond jim, two bay area based multi-instrumentalists, DJs, and producers. they became the rondo brothers in 2004 after living in New Orleans for several months working with Galactic on the ruckus album, and getting into a hotel hot tub with all of their clothes on.

Having already contributed to various projects through friend Dan The Automator such as Deltron 3030, Dr Octagon, and Lovage, the rondo brothers made their own breakthrough album "No Time Left On Earth" which was a clever take on hawaiian music mixed with beats and electronics and earned them a spot opening for the Handsome Boy Modeling School White People tour in 2005.

Subsequently, the Rondos were invited to join Head Automatica, a side project for Glassjaw frontman Daryl Palumbo, and this crew went on multiple national tours opening for The Cure, Interpol, Thursday, the Rapture, and more.

While gaining accomplishments as live musicians, the Rondos wrote and recorded on dozens of commercial scores, films, and television shows, as well as getting opportunities to turn in remixes for artists such as Lily Allen, Common, the Beatles, Shwayze, Peeping Tom, and others. They scored a series of NFL cartoons and wrote the song “Ocho Cinco” that gave Chad Johnson his now famous legal nickname.

In 2007 a second record was released, "Seven Minutes To Midnight", which found them still a wider audience and they embarked another Automator tour, supporting Chali2NA, Casual, and Andre the Giant on a national tour supporting the NBA 2K7 video game.

Now heavily in demand producers, the Rondos produced with Bay Area indie favorites Loquat, nerdcore hero MC Lars, as well as tracks for artists such as Scissors For Lefty, Kid Beyond, the Lovemakers, the Matches, and many others.

In 2008 they were offered a chance to record tracks with metal-guitarist guru F Sean Martin from Hatebreed who was working with legendary bay area MC Motion Man on a project called King Beast - the Rondos and Motion Man hit it off, and the three started working on a new project of their own, the Foreign Globester.

In 2009 the rondos finished two album for MC Lars, and currently are working as full-time producers for a side project with up and coming Australian brother duo the Kin, who were introduced to the rondos by producer and collaborator Jack Douglas.

Also accomplished songwriters, 2010 will see the rondos release a cut of one of their co-writes on the new Galactic album, sung by R&B legend Irma Thomas, as well as a co-write on Alligator Records’ artist Eric Lindell.

2010 will see the of release the Foreign Globester album through Oglio/DMAFT records….
