Delilah

By Kai Wada Roath
Ambassador of Confusion Hill and host of the Super Shangri-La Show

"Delilah got in action, Delilah did her kootch
She gave him satisfaction and he fell 'neath her spell,
With the aid of love and hootch"
~ "Sam and Delilah" (1931) by Duke Ellington

There have been many songs and movies about the Nazarite stud-muffin and that saucy, seductive gal from Sorek. Popular groups whose music makes my ears cringe like...uggg...Queen, Grateful Dead, and The Cranberries have all sung about the famous story of romance and betrayal. Me, I'd rather put a quarter in the jukebox for Nat King Cole's "Song of Delilah" or Tom Jones' 1967 hit, "Delilah" (which has stabbing murder lyrics like a Johnny Cash song).



On the tropical isle of Jamaica, Eric "Monty" Morris and other early ska musicians recorded songs in the '60s about the Biblical dysfunctional duo too.

New Green Room Session with Hatchie

Hatchie - Amoeba Green Room Session

Austrailian dream-pop artist Hatchie (aka Harriette Pilbeam) and her band filled the Amoeba Hollywood green room with their shimmery, pillowy brand of shoegaze-y rock. The band played four of the five tracks off Hatchie's debut EP Sugar & Spice, which is out now on Double Double Whammy.

Hatchie Sugar & Spice

Starting with the title track, they fell into a mid-tempo groove, full of atmospheric tones. Continuing with "Sure," the band took a more sentimental approach with its inquisitive lyrics concerning a rekindled relationship. With its watery-shimmery guitar and intricate vocal melodies "Bad Guy" invoked the spirit of bands like Cocteau Twins, while the set closer "Try" porved to be an anthem full of longing. 

Hatchie returns to the States in Spring 2019 to tour with Girlpool. You can catch them in Los Angeles April 6th at the Regent and in San Francisco April 9th at the Independent.

Having A Movie Moment With Jon Longhi: The Horrors! The Horrors!

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, November 29, 2018 06:07pm | Post a Comment

By Jon Longhi

Welcome to this month’s Having A Movie Moment With Jon Longhi, where I review recent Blu-ray releases. Both of these Blu-rays came out in the past three months. This month, I review two very different movies that just happen to have the word Horror in their titles.

Horrors of Malformed Men, Arrow Video:
This movie is like going to a Cirque Du Soleil show where all the performers on stage accidentally ate theHorrors of Malformed Men brown acid. I own a huge collection of cult films and along with the films of John Waters, Salvador Dali's Un Chien Andalou, Fellini's Satyricon, and Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain, and this movie pretty much rules the roost of the "HOLY SHIT, WHAT THE FUCK AM I WATCHING?" segment of my collection. The second half of this movie is like a sustained psychedelic assault on the senses. Director Teruo Ishii really pulled out all the stops to make this a one-of-a-kind experience. The movie is an adaptation of the writings of Edogawa Rampo and combines elements of his novels Strange Tale of Panorama Island and The Demon of The Lonely Isle with some of his short stories. The end result is a literal bombardment of strange surreal perversions. There's incest, bestiality, cannibalism, and a number of sexual fetishes that seem unique to Japan. There's a scene where a man sewn into a couch molests women who unsuspectingly sit on it.
