Yes, Slits are about as seminal as you get from that period. Everyone who doesn't love 'Cut' should hate themselves.
I appreciate your delayed gratification.

Curious if you've heard their Peel Sessions, some of which came out on Cut's deluxe edition. You get to hear some of the more guitar grit that they gave it before turning more sharply toward dub music.

When I find time, I'll make a separate thread for this nonsense. I think Ill start providing more images from the movies that haven't been guessed. We'll see how much that helps.

Festival Season Edition

Image

The inaugural film document of the longstanding British music festival, directed by Nicolas Roeg, or something in the proximity of the British Woodstock. Unfortunately, some of the better artists at the show are not included, like David Bowie (who refused to b either filmed or recorded) or Gong, Hawkwind and Edgar Broughton Band (who are featured on the 3 LP release of the event). From what's left, we get some good music from the likes of Tonto's Exploding Headband, Fairport Convention and the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, which is fine, I guess, but quite a bit less than it could have been. Still, a fascinating snapshot of a period of time prophesized in A Field in England.


Image
The Past Is A Grotesque Animal

A good rundown of the history of Of Montreal, the non-Canadian slice of the Elephant 6 collective with their distinctively sprite indie-psychedelic throwdown. A lot of good music and interesting drama. Singer/writer Kvin Barnes turns out to be kind of a dickhead, which shouldn't be tremendously surprising for anyone who's been paying attention.


Image

Vintage verite doc of burgeoning reggae acts in London, circa 1978. Featuring folks like Aswad and Steel Pulse, the film avoids talking head historians for real-time performances, live and in-studio, and interviews from the scene. Recommended, but this alo has a lot less free-flingling penis than the previous two reviews.

I'm just mostly stuck in a netherworld of indifference when it comes to Mandy. I didn't mind watching it. There are some really good moments. It's kinda its own thing. Kinda.

But it ultimately didn't feel like very much.

Was it supposed to feel like much?

Although I liked Mandy, I felt like the rest of the world liked it a lot more than I did. Have you seen Beyond the Black Rainbow? I have no idea what it was about, but there's a stretch somewhere in the middle that's a series of trippy visuals, some of my favorite eye candy of this decade.

Nicolas Cage rage crying in his tighty whities while drinking vodka straight from the bottle made up for the slot of a first hour. When it became Cage rampaging, it fully won me over.

That first hour had me worried Cosmatos had pulled another Beyond the Black Rainbow (a boring slog of limited aesthetics and technical merit).

I probably should watch Mandy, but I was pretty lukewarm on Beyond the Black Rainbow (which looked and sounded plenty nice, but never accumulated to anything more than that).

Mandy is the only movie I ever saw twice in a theater. The first time I was able to catch an early screening of it, a few months before it got its actual us release. (Mandy never got officially released in Belgium, despite being filmed here) I remember liking it, but being bothered by its pace, something about it just felt off.
A few months later, I saw it again at some Halloween Night Double Bill. I wasn't particularly interested in seeing Mandy again, but the first film was the Suspiria remake, which I was crazy excited about and I didn't wanted to wait another 3 weeks before it would come out here. Funny enough, I ended up being disappointed by Suspiria yet found myself in love with Mandy. For some reason it clicked with me the second time. I fell into its rhythm and was enamored with the crazy metal-y score by the late Johann Johannssen. I guess knowing what was going to happen made me less impatient for when the big Cage freakout was going to start and made me appreciate the movie more for what it was actually doing. I wrote this down in my End-of-the-Year Review:: "Like Cosmatos brought the heavy metal cover art of Richard Corben to life, mixed it with pure cocaïne, set it all on fire and out of those ashes rose the magnificent phoenix that is Mandy."

I absolutely hated Beyond the Black Rainbow, btw.

I get all of the cinematic touchstones this movie is jumping from. I appreciate the care with which it was put together. I like its deliberate confrontational nature. Because of these things, I don't have any particular interest in writing Mandy entirely off, or be hesitant to revisit. My beef with the movie is simply that it all felt so terribly empty. For all of its strangeness, the strageness was presented so completely mannered that I could almost see the wheels turning in the directors head over how he was going to double down on the weirdness. Ultimetly, none of this pantomime got under my skin, as it needed to. With all of the absurd asides, in your face violence, eccentric characters and kinda textbook surrealism, the movie had a sense that it was sleepwalking through all of it. No vitality. It also didn't help that I found the dialogue to mostly be pretty bad, the performance of the main villain to be bland and the emotional journey (as it was set up) to be hollow. Yes, the film explicitly tells me why Cage should be furious, and he obviously should be, but for that fury to resonate as deeply as it should have I had to connect to some kind of poetry between Cage and his wife as it established their relationship, and all of their moments together rang false to me. Presented simply as reasons for us to admire the idyllic life out in the woods, their moments don't feel lived in, they feel manipulative since they feel like we are only seeing them for the deliberate purpose of empathy. I need to be a fly on the wall of their life, not feel that I have been invited over to simply bear witness their cute and cuddling planetary talk. Now, was the movie nice to looks at. Yeah, mostly. But even this didn't wow me to the level it would need to to overcome the overall meh-ness of the entire thing.

I'm still sticking with Nicholas Cage in his tighty whiteys being the only real thing of importance here.

I really dug Mandy. It's probably my favorite movie of 2018. Aside from all the aesthetic qualities already mentioned, Red's journey from achieving a semblance of stability in his life (after likely struggling to overcome substance abuse), having it taken away from him in the worst way and trying to get justice in the most phantasmagorical way possible resonated in the best way for me. Sure, it's a familiar arc - it's found in John Wick and another great movie from last year, You Were Never Really Here - but it does it in a way with a rawness and physicality I've experienced very rarely this decade.

Ideally, this is how I would have liked to have responded to the film.

Oh well, maybe next time.

I much preferred both John Wick and You Were Never Really Here.

Everything you said about Mandy is pretty much how I felt about Rainbow, only the latter is way more lethargically-paced. I have no idea what the plot even was at this point, and I'm not even sure I did while the film was in progress. I perked up during that melty-face segment in the middle but I was not connecting with the story at all. Mandy is no doubt the better film, but like I said I feel like everyone else liked it more than I.

I've got no issues disliking things. I've built an entire movie watching career on exactly this.

I only take issue with things I dislike because they are absolutely nothing. And I'm pretty good at avoiding those kinds of movies.

Mandy wasn't nothing.

All straight comedies that aren't funny (the majority of all movies that are strictly comedy are not funny). Most super hero movies. Most horror movies that have broad theatrical releases. Dreadful surrealism. One dimensional social issue movies. Lifeless dramatic fare that impresses those without a pulse. Rock biopics (24 Hour Party People and Sid and Nancy excluded)

Avoid avoid avoid.

Neither of those albums would be a good intro, in my opinion. (Assuming you have the latter-day version of Space Ritual.) My advice would be to try Doremi Fasol Latido, or the actual Space Ritual.

Edit: I'm not a giant fan or anything, but when I'm in the mood those are two that I go for. Didn't want to give the impression that I'm a Hawkwind expert.

I'm not even sure what Space Ritual I have. It has the exact same cover, but I noticed it had Vol 2 listed beneath the title after I had already opened it and listened to it and not given much of a fuck about it. It depresses me to even think about it since I spent about 50 dollars on it, and it has made me less interested in ever buying the proper copy.

Don't go record shopping drunk, kids.

I've done similar things (sober, even) and it stings bad. I know the feeling.
Volume 2 is from the same era/shows so it's fine for completists, I just wouldn't recommend it to a newcomer. (I thought you meant you'd bought the recent live album with a similar name. That would really be doubly embarassing.)
Anyhow, Hawkwind scratches the same itch for me that something like Hallogallo does. They make me drive faster, in other words.

Here's their cut from the Glastonbury LP set (give it a few minutes to kick in). They were pretty firmly in the same camp as the other English prog-rockers of the time.

I've only have their debut album and Space Ritual (and I think I mistakenly bought some kind of alternate version which is super annoying), but I've never been able to get into Hawkwind much.
That's pretty much all you need. The endlessly recycled 72-74 live recordings from which Space Ritual and its ilk were culled are definitive enough, and monotonous enough to justify only a sparse sample.
