Enter a New World

Jandek - Chair By a Window

Posted because everyone needs to hear at least one Jandek record.

I like to compare listening to a Jandek record to watching someone pull the scabs off their skin. Real slowly. Music for nightmares, don't listen alone.

Question about the Sharrock re-ups:

is Monkey-Pocky-Boo one 16:57 track?
and Black Woman tracks 04 - 08 only?

cuz that's what I got when I extracted the zip files.

Not complaining about your true generosity in sharing these, just asking.

Shit. Might have done the wrong files. There should be a single long track and two short ones for the Monkey Pock. If that's not what you've got, I'll have to redo the sucker. It'll be a couple days though - life, etc.

Good stuff, I check your spot first thing every morning. I transferred this LP this week for my boss, thought your readers might enjoy it. It's not as interesting as alot of the stuff on here, but worth a listen. Lots of keyboard, organs, and an interesting track called "Pete The Bondage Freak". This is the only album I've found info on by this guy.

Got the 3 tracks for Monkey Pocky. Gracias!

"Black Woman" zip has tracks labeled 04-08. Does this mean there are tracks 01-03 that didn't make it?

urania235 said...

Okay, I dug up the info on my own.

Interesting to note that Sharrock appears on another record featured on this magnificent blog: Brute Force - Brute Force

Here are track listings and liner notes for both Sharrock records:

Black Woman (1969)

Sonny Sharrock - Guitar
Lynda Sharrock - Vocals
Dave Burrell - Piano
Norris Jones(Sirone) - Bass
Milford Graves - Drums
Ted Daniel - Trumpet
Richard Pierce - Bass
Gary Sharrock - Bells

1.Black Woman
4.Blind Willie
5.Portrait of Lynda in
Three Colors, All Black

Sonny's debut Solo LP is a forgotten classic of the New York jazz scene of the late 60's. Originally released on Vortex, a division of Atlantic, and produced by Herbie Mann, This album features Sonny & Lynda with a killer band.


Monkey-Pockie-Boo (1970)

Sonny Sharrock - Guitar
Lynda Sharrock - Vocals
Bob Guerin- Bass
Jacques Thollot - Drums

1. 27th Day
2. Soon
3. Monkey-Pockie-Boo

Recorded 6/22/70 in Paris for BYG/Actuel, and later re-released on Charly. This features Sonny and Lynda in a free setting with a french rythym section (Thollot having previously shared the stage with Sharrock for Don Cherry's Eternal Rythym).

This LP was produced by Jean Georgakarakos, (who would later form Celluloid), a rather notorious record biz scoundrel. Sonny told the story of how, after recording these sessions, he had to kidnap the master tapes, in order to "leverage" his (rather meager) fee for the recording.
