French electronic music producer Jean-Jacques Perrey died Friday at age 87 following a bout with lung cancer, Rolling Stone has confirmed. Perrey was hailed for his work with early electronic keyboards, particularly Moog synthesizers, pioneering a lighthearted, space-age sound that continues to resonate in contemporary electronic pop. He also acquired notable admirers in hip-hop, particularly for his song “E.V.A.,” which has been sampled by artists including A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, and, later, Pusha T. Perrey released his first albums with collaborator Gershon Kingsley in the 1960s. (The Beastie Boys would later borrow the title of the duo’s 1966 debut, The In Sound From Way Out!, for a 1996 instrumental compilation.) Perrey and Kingsley’s best-known song, “Baroque Hoedown,” long served as soundtrack to the Main Street Electrical Parade at Disney theme parks. Perrey went on to release two dozen more albums, many of which—Moog Indigo, Moog Generation, Moog Mig Mag Moog, Moog

50s/60s Beat Generation-to-Psychedelic Sunset Strip Slide Show

On Sunday, November 13, there will be connected events for the 50th Anniversary. At 1 p.m. (yours truly) Domenic Priore will do a ’50s/’60s Beat Generation-to-Psychedelic Sunset Strip slide show at Small World Books in Venice (1407 Ocean Front Walk, next to The Sidewalk Cafe). Copies of my book “Riot on Sunset Strip: Rock ‘n’ Roll’s Last Stand in Hollywood” will be on sale. At 4 p.m., The Shag Rats will do a free In-Store at at the record shop Sounds of Music (4956 E. Whittier Boulevard, East Los Angeles)… a whole set, this time… and then at 7 p.m., an informal “’66 Sunset Strip Candlelight Vigil/Crowd Singalong” will take place at the site of Pandora’s Box, 8118 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles… the traffic island at the corner of Sunset & Crescent Heights. Bring your acoustic instruments only and a head full of songs from L.A. ’64-’67, and everybody sing along and join the fun without machines! This last event is with the approval of City of Los Angeles, Senior Lead Officer for that district, so play it cool…

50th Anniversary of Riot on Sunset Strip

Saturday, November 12, 2016, 6 p.m. @ Echoplex, 1154 Glendale Boulevard and The Echo, 1822 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Rock ‘n Rollers Rioted on the Sunset Strip 50 years ago

Tickets

Also, just added to the show, Don Preston and Bunk Gardner, who were members of The Mothers of Invention from 1966-1969 (“Absolutely Free,” “We’re Only In it For the Money,” “Cruisin’ With Ruben & the Jets,” “Uncle Meat,” “Burnt Weenie Sandwich,” “Weasels Ripped My Flesh”). They will perform upstairs at The Echo with The Creation Factory, all part of the same ticket price.

I would like to encourage everyone to get to this show by 8 p.m., because the opening set will be starting promptly with The Shag Rats, who then help to back The Premiers (East L.A. Nuggets legends of “Farmer John” fame) and Brenda Holloway (who grew up in Watts, and was the only L.A. artist signed to Motown, hitting with “Every Little Bit Hurts” and her original “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy”)

The Loons will come on at 9:30, and after their set, they’ll bring on Randy Holden, from 1965 Gazzarri’s house band The Sons of Adam, who also were known to open for Love often at Bido Lito’s. Randy moved over to a band called The Other Half, so you’ll hear songs from both The Sons of Adam, and The Other Half.

At 11:05, The Pandoras, will take the stage, and Love Revisited will be the pinnacle, at Midnight.

Upstairs at The Echo, it will be Bomboms at 6:30, The Schizophonics at 7:15, Franki & the Witch Fingers at 8 p.m. and The Creaton Factory at 8:45. After Brenda Holloway finishes downstairs, Don Preston and Bunk Gardner from the Mothers of Invention will join The Creation Factoy on stage to play some of the material from the albums Don and Bunk were on the recordings of circa 1966-1969.

The Center for Biological Diversity today urged the Canadian government to reject Kinder Morgan’s proposal to build a 613-mile pipeline so it can transport dirty Alberta tar sands oil to the United States and China. The pipeline would run from Edmonton, Alberta to Burnaby, British Columbia, where the oil would be loaded onto tankers and shipped through critical habitat for endangered Southern Resident killer whales, a species with fewer than 85 individual animals left.
