Kim Fowley – 21st Century Youth

Trash-O-Rama Records 700261971797 (USA 2012)

With Benjamin Reagan (guitar, bass, drums), John York (ex-Byrds) (guitar) and various other musicians

“21st Century Youth” was recorded between 2009 and 2012. The atmosphere was Rock ‘n' Roll Workshop. Recording Artist Kim Fowley returned full time to West Hollywood, California, after being gone for 14 years. He lived in 10 EU Cities in 8 EU Countries and 15 USA Cities, during that time away from Tinsel Town. 

Mike Wolf was the engineer / mixer at Studio 5109 in Hollywood. Benjamin Reagan, now with Richie Ramone, was the main guitar / bass / drummer. John York, formerly of The Byrds, was the other guitar. Various other musicians wandered in and out. During this time, Fowley was fighting his then girlfriend, a fetish industry female, who brought a lot of her job pressures into Fowley's composing and recording life. 

Kim Fowley is controversial at best. He has been accused of madness, insanity and over all bad behavior, for the entirety of his life. He felt the album was a bleeding / bitter / battered / broken musical mad house experience. The vibes were horrible. The atmosphere in the studio was a battlefield. 

Kim has either been a recording artist with / producer of / or composer with such dark and disturbed artists as The Germs, The Runaways, Blue Cheer, Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention, Gene Vincent, Them, The Seeds, The Belfast Gypsies, Steppenwolf, Blue Oyster Cult, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Bachman Turner Overdrive and one thousand other acts. He has worked for P.J. Proby. He wrote liner notes for G.G. Allin. He sang background vocals for Gram Parsons (2nd solo album). 

Kim Fowley has paid his dues with troublesome projects. He has brought these wounds and shadows into your body and soul. Be prepared for a journey into the center of the basement and sewer of your mind. This is not an album you will play at a family wedding. This album is for cold winter nights. Being in a cold and empty room. “21st Century Youth” is a warning to the young party people among us, to be careful of what you wish for. It might be a life sentence as a “21st Century Youth”.... for the rest of the century.

Hi-Fi featuring David Surkamp and Iain Matthews – Complete Works

Blue Rose Records BLU CD0354 (Germany 2006)

David Surkamp (guitar, vocals)
Iain Matthews (guitar, vocals)
Bruce Hazen (guitar, vocals, synthesizer)
Garey Shelton (bass, vocals)
Bill Rieflin (drums)
Bob Briley (drums)
Douglas Rayburn (keyboards)

When the band Pavlov's Dog split up in the late 1970s, lead vocalist David Surkamp was rumored to be dead, while he was in fact working with former Fairport Convention member Ia(i)n Matthews in a band named Hi-Fi. While living in Seattle, the group was successful on the club scene and recorded a 5-track live 12" EP in 1981 entitled “Hi-Fi Demonstration Record” and a studio album in 1983 entitled “Moods For Mallards”. Both Hi-Fi records were released on First American Records and distribution was mostly limited to the Pacific Northwest region. The small label self-destructed not long after, when investors ran into tax trouble with the Internal Revenue Service.

"Hi-Fi was formed in early 1980, comprising me [Bruce Hazen (lead guitar)], David Surkamp (ex-Pavlov's Dog, guitar & lead vocal), and Doug Rayburn (bass & keyboards, ex-Pavlov's Dog). We cut an unreleased 1st album with Bill Rieflin (ex-Blackouts, Robert Fripp, Ministry etc.) on drums. The second line-up (July '80) was me, David, Doug, and we added Bob Briley (drums) and Iain Matthews (ex-Fairport Convention, Matthews Southern Comfort) on vocals. This version toured the U.S. with The Beach Boys and others. Terminal line-up ('82) was me, Doug (on keys only), Garey Shelton (bass), Ian and Bob.  We broke up in '83, when I moved to London to cut album/tour with Ian." - Bruce Hazen

Tracks 1 to 5 are from the “Demonstration Record” EP - recorded April 29, May 7, 11 & 12 (1981) - Live at Bearcreek
Tracks 6 to 15 are from the ”Moods For Mallards” album - studio recordings (1983)
Tracks 16 and 17 are from the “It's Almost Christmas” single (1981)

Track 1 was originally written for the movie “The Young Ones” by Norrie Paramor for The Shadows, who released the original version as “The Savage” in November 1961 and it reached number 10 in the U.K. charts.

Various Artists – Mr. Tambourine Man - 60 Great Versions

Written by Bob Dylan

The most interesting versions are those that don’t sound like Dylan’s original version or like The Byrds’ hit version. Some weird versions to be heard.

UPDATE: I've been asked who the guy pictured on the cover was, holding a tambourine. It's The Byrds' GENE CLARK, who was the real "Tambourine Man".

You can also see the head of The Byrds drummer Michael Clarke under the "Mr" letters.

The tambourine pictured on the upper left corner of the image is signed by the three other Byrds: Roger McGuinn, David Crosby and Chris Hillman
