Goodbye sweat child

Dearest Dirk

Half a year ago you said goodbye to one of your legs
Your best leg that took so many steps for you
That good leg was allowed to go before you and
Because of its offer for you that leg was/is a Very Very special leg
Now it appears that also the rest of you, so you, the whole Dirk Sietse
Must be a Very Very special child
That you may go to Eternity before your mom and dad
You are going to be reunited with your leg and therefore be complete again
But just like your leg, You are not ‘gone’
You just left behind the mater, sacrificed your body
Mater is Emptiness, Spirit that is Fullness!

In a while, when you get used to being in Heaven and completely cured
You will be able to look back over the past year
Notwithstanding everything undoubtedly your best year ever:
What 18/19 year old can say that he, like you
Pulled through night after night with his mom
Got his school diploma without going to school for even one day
Has friends throughout the whole world posting on your blog
Has a relationship with younger brothers and sister like no adolescent ever has
And always close to you: you big friend and faithful dad
A spectacular room, especially built for you
You’ve been flying in a helicopter and you just came back from a great vacation
With freedom blowing around your ears, on the back of the tandem
Without the deep valleys of pain and nausea and sorrow
One doesn’t value Beauty, Love and Happiness
So you’re checking out at the peek of your earthy existence!

Your mom and dad will go on in your spirit
Together with your sister and little brothers
And you are going to be their guardian angel
Just like how you were able to wiggle your amputated toes
They will be able to feel you around every single day
And talk to you, as much as they want because you will be there always
From Heaven you will be posting on your new blog
Cities On Flame With Rock And Roll is closing
You will start: Heaven to Earth With Angel Dirk
Life on earth here will never be the way it was
But No one can take away what you brought and gave to us

Goodbye sweat Dirk!

august the 1

dear cyber friends

today Dirk past a way, he went to his heavenly father, Dirk wants to ask you to please sign the comments as a memorial for next off kin


Dear Cyberfriends,
I am Dirk's mother, and Dirk asked me to keep you updated on how he is
doing. Well I have to tell you all some sad news, wednesday the 25th we went
to the hospital for his 7th chemo, but as Dirk told you he wasn't feeling
well. The doctors examined him and they found a huge tumor and fluid in his
left lung, there is nothing that they can do for him anymore, the prognosis
is that he only has a few weeks to live... At the moment it's going very
fast, day by day he is getting worse... Dirk asked me to tell you this, and
that when he passes away, he wants the comments to be used as a memorial
register, and then the blog will be closed. It will stay as a memorial in
loving memory of Dirk.. Greetings and love from Dirk and his mom Janny

October Cherries-Dreamseller

1972 Singapore Psychedelic Pop
@320 kbits (Vinyl Rip?)

this one was requested some time ago
decent Beatelesque psych pop,this album is quite rare.
this is the only vinyl rip i could find,and one track is damaged
my fav. tracks are Dreamseller and Bad Trip.
overall a good addition to the collection of psych pop freaks.
the album was recorded in belgium.
and got released there by EMI Europe,Baal Records did the asian

some info:
NCREDIBLE Beatles-inspired pop psych masterpiece by the October Cherries, "Dreamseller" and subtitled "A Work of Magic by the October Cherries". Now it may take quite a bit of nerve and confidence to subtitle your album "a work of magic", but in this case, the Cherries knew what they were talking about. This MONUMENTAL album is indeed magical - a long-lost Malaysian Magical Mystery Tour that so few people have ever heard - and anyone who loves the tuneful orchestrated UK popsike sounds of bands like the Bee Gees, Idle Race, Beatles and all the Rubble comp bands will LOVE this album too. Granted, it didn't get released until 1972, long after their particular sound was way out of style in England, but in Signapore, they were superstars.
This LP is filled with really incredible Beatlish psych. Good tunes, playing, arranging, psychedelic bits. Just incredible

got get it!

V.A - Oz Days Live (Official Reissue)

1973 Japan Underground Rock
includes HQ Scans

This is something ive been waiting for ages on
a official and complete version of the Oz Days Live album
and this sounds soo much better than the incomplete bootleg from years ago
wich only had one half of the LP.
the full re-issue was released somewhere in june (11 june,if im correct) 2007

First ever full reissue of one of the most totemic/rarest of early Japanese underground releases, 1973’s double LP set Oz Days.
This edition features repro cover art, a fold-out insert and - for the first time ever - includes all of the music from the original release, with Les Rallizes Denudes’s side-long blaster and Taj Mahal Travellers’ tempestuous comedown drones further bolstered by tracks from Miyako Ochi, Acid Seven and Minami Masato.
An amazing snapshot of the formative years of the Japanese underground, fully restored at last. Edition of 300 copies - very limited supply! ~Volcanic Tongue

credits to
"polvere" for the rip & scans

Chemo Cure and then Going On Vacation

I Will Be On Vacation For Two Weeks after my chemo cure

Recently came from my 10 year old brother's school musical (around a hour ago)
not that he is leaving school allready,the school he goes to is a really (x2) small school
with around 35 kids,and the highest grade only has 2 kids in it,and both are leaving the school
so two other grades had to help.

later me & my lil' bro watched a little bit from a David Bowie dvd
after he asked what i was listening to,which was of course David Bowie (mostly he asks such kind of questions when he likes something) and personally i see it as my duty as his oldest brother to give him a somewhat good music taste (he allready likes Dungen & A Band Of Bees ect..)
and i couldn't find a good quality picture of a David Bowie live show,so i searched for my 30th Anniversary DVD Special Edition of the
Ziggy Stardust Motion Picture.

so tomorrow i will be getting my sixth chemo cure,which means that there are only two more left! (Whoo!) and Friday the rest of my family is going on vacation in a big vacation house which we rented
and Saturday when i am finished with the chemo cure,they will pick me up
and then i'll be on a two week vacation (without internet *sob* )

so see you soon again! ,and if there is any internet cafe near it,i might post some updates from there (but no music of course)

and the opening of the revalidation centre went good,the helicopter flight was really awesome.
(i would recommend it to you all!)

The Jaguars-First Album

1968 Japan Group Sounds (@256 kbits)

the first album by group sounds band
The Jaguars,you might seen them on various compilations
with songs like Dancin' Baby & Dancing Lonely Night (wich both are great songs)
this album includes quite some bonus tracks
songtitles translated to english by Lizardson

They were one of most famous GS; many Japanese remember their debut song "Want You See Again(Kimi ni Aitai)".

They sung some moody hit songs and wrote cool punk ballads like "My Dawn"
On the other hand, they were compared to Dave, Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich.

Jaguars covered "Zabadak", "Legend of Xanadu".

This Japanese cover version of Xanadu was a #20 hit.
Actually, it was the flip side of another moody song.

The lead singer Sin Okamoto attracted teen girls with his good looks and singing with whip like Dave Dee.

Also they covered the fab "Tobacco Road" which is on the "Big Lizard Stomp" compilation, which was a psychedelic version, much like the Blues Magoos, "Blue Feeling" (Slitherama), "See See Rider" (Banzai Freak Beat).

They appeared in their own movie "Jaguars Tekizen Jyouriku" in '68, a cool comedy which was influenced by the Beatles' "Help!".
But soon after, the leader/drummer Miya quit the band due to a conflict with the other members. He wrote their early original "Beat Train".
He formed a new group called New Jaguars and released a few singles, but they weren't successful.


sorry for the link of part1(sharebee stopped uploading,when it was not finished)

Sharp Five-Haru No Umi

1968 Japan Eleki/Surf/Instrumental Rock

this is the 11th LP by (Munetaka Inoue &) the Sharp Five

you might think Eleki?,what's that in heaven's sake!
dont you just mean frickin' GS?
The term Eleki is applied to the first japanese big band boom
and is short for Electric (as in electric guitars)
wich started when The Ventures first visited in japan in May 1962
wich was the first of many to come
And by the time they visited japan aqain on January 65
lots of instrumental rock bands allready had been started
In 1965 760,000 guitars were made in Japan, a record that has yet to be broken.
some well known names are Takeshi Terauchi & The Bunny's,The Blue Comets,The Launchers ect..

more info here

some more info about the album:

Hara No Umi (which both opens and closes the album) is jaw-dropping--it starts as mellow traditional Japanese music an then builds to an all-out Eleki stomper.

Vicious guitar licks, surf induced wah-wah and fuzz distorted interceptions, all pored over with an oriental sonic garage back base. This really rocks and stings like a bat out of hell. A vicious party slammer, psyched up, fuzzed-out and fuelled up ready to leave burning tire tracks all over your sorry ass. This disc is not yet been detected by the larger psychedelic collecting crowd, so it comes quite cheap. We speak of 1968 here, real stunning album and quite rare these days. Highest recommendation

go get it!

High Rise-Dispersion

1992 Japan Underground Heavy Rock

great album by japanse underground rockers High Rise
somewhat reminds me of Les Rallizes Denudes

allmusic review:
Originally released in Japan in 1992 and reissued in the U.S. by Squealer in late 1998, Dispersion is an album to acquire only if you like your psychedelic rock and heavy metal with a lot of improvisation, jamming and blowing. If you love hearing Cream and Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsies stretch out on their live recordings, Dispersion would be an excellent purchase. As a rule, Cream would provide its share of radio-friendly singles ("White Room," among others) and save the extended blowing for the stage. But there's nothing radio friendly about "Sanctuary," "Outside Gentiles," "Eucharist" and other extended performances on this CD (which isn't as punk influenced as earlier efforts like 1986's High Rise II). Extended guitar solos are the rule for High Rise, and Munehiro Narita (whose blistering, metallic distortion and feedback recall Hendrix and Eric Clapton) is such a captivating guitarist that it's a joy to hear him stretch. Obviously, long solos aren't everyone's cup of tea; Dispersion is for listeners who are willing to sit down and hear improvising rockers do their thing.

Hiro Yanagida-Hirocosmos @320 kbits

1973 Japan Progressive Rock/Fusion

another one for Jim Mutandsounds

from the softer sounds of the Sons Of Sun album we go to the heavier Hirocosmos album.
This album is so awesome! imho ,no weird doo-wop ballads as on previous albums
just progressive rock/jazz fusion.
been listening a lot to this album lately,got it by email previous week.

Hiro Yanagida delivers some great Mellotron,Electric/Acoustic Piano,Hammond Organ & Synthesizer work on this album.the rest of the band concists of
info that came with the email:
It seems Hiro Yanagida was the keyboard player for Foodbrain and Love Live Life + One, amongst others, kicking his solo career off with 1970's Milk Time.
Hirocosmos is his fourth solo, and can be summed up in one word: fusion.
Various jazz/rock styles are covered, although Yanagida's probably at his best when delivering fiery, Mahavishnu-type stuff, as on Rockomotion or The Sea Of Tempest when it gets going, although the album contains more of his reflective material along the lines of Time For Reverie.

His keyboard work is fairly astounding, with some absolutely blistering Moog work on several tracks, along with the ubiquitous Rhodes.
He plays Mellotron on two tracks, with some stupidly fast 'Tron flute work on Breaking Sound-Barrier; no idea how he played that without loads of key-click, missed notes etc. Talent, I suppose. Anyway, more flutes and strings on Happy Cruise, although that would appear to be it.'
