How does it feel to be in attendance at the world premiere of Ink Math 2.0?  Probably not too special, I suppose, considering that only a few of you came and I could only wrangle a cash-bar and a platter of cheez-its. So, out with UCTIV DOT NET and in with the DOT COM, spread the word casually, perhaps in a conversation with a co-worker, or in a brief interaction with an old woman on the subway. With the help of a wealthy and talented benefactor, this new site has finally become a reality and oozes with the sheik modern landscape I so desire in this cold sterile world of internets that we live in. There should be some new “high-tech” features beaming at you soon, such as a subscribe feature, and a link section that will guide you towards things that I think are neat, the sky is the limit. Isn’t it great that we live in The Future?

I knew that I’d have to put together a special mix for this kick-off party and I have been sitting on this one for awhile, saving it up little by little only to drop it all on you unawares for this grand occasion. Something summery, something fun, something unique, something rare, all with an underlying layer of credibility, that was my goal.  I started listening to a lot of late 50’s and early 60’s soul recently and with the addition of a few box-sets, and the right albums, I knew I had the right recipe to blow your sweet little mind. I tried to focus on female artists for this set, but a few males slipped in here and there, apologies. One boxset, “One Kiss Can Lead to Another: Girl Group Sounds Lost and Found”, proved especially useful for putting this together and is also totally rad on its’ own. In addition, I went through a bunch of A-Side singles from the Stax/Volt record label between the years 1959-68 and found some incredible stuff, too much stuff, and there are some odds and ends thrown in as well from whatever happened to pop up. It was kind of hard whittling down all this totally great music into two petite handy mixes, but I think I picked the real gems and I am satisfied and beg you to be as well…maybe I’ll do a part two of this sort of stuff some time.

Lulu & The Luvvers – I’ll Come Running

Also, if you are in Missoula come down to The Badlander next Tuesday July 28th to hear me DJ up what might be some of hardest and nastiest ganster rap ever made. I’m not really a fan of rap music, or hip-hop, but a few of us KBGA folk were sitting around one night and we started reminiscing about our youthful days when rap music was especially dirty, especially interesting. and was like candy to the mind of a 10 year old. After saying, “those were the days”, and having another drink of beer, we decided to take a little live DJing trip down memory lane to the year of Nineteen-Ninety Motherfuckin’ One and thus the ganster rap royal DJ night was born. I can remember convincing my Mom to tell the record store owner that it was ok for her son to buy parental advisory albums (told her that all the good albums at least had one swear word) and then coming in later by myself in order to buy every 2 Live Crew, N.W.A., and Geto Boys album they had, and this was in fifth grade. First thing I would do was throw away all the cover art and black out the group name and track-titles on the cassette, so as to assure my Dad didn’t get wind of what I was up to because one time he threw away my copy of Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik when he found it. And, after that it was headphones, and headphones only, Mom and Dad could never know. Most of the time I didn’t know what they were talking about, what with all the violence and women, but there was something so goddamn fascinating about the lyrics and the music that I kept buying tape after tape until one day I burned out and bought a Tool album.  Anyway, at the very least this DJ night should at least be funny (3 white guys in Montana playing the hardest of early 90’s ganster rap) and maybe I’ll post my set up here some time so you can fully understand the sort of filth my mind was drawn to at a very tender age.

I hope you are doing well,

    Such a solid session to kick off the official Ink Math site. This must be straight from that recent radio show of yours. I’m stoked you posted this. I must say, ‘Down in the Boondocks’ makes me laugh.
