Top 13 (Of The Week)

Sure,you know what's cool. But do you know what's really fuckin' FAR OUT? That's where Advanced Demonology takes over. Every week, (K)en and (S)wilson trudge through the murky waters of the pop culture hellscape, dredging up sparkly morsels of wonder. These are the result of our latest foray into the world of the weird, our wildest, wiggest-out picks of the week. Call it our 13 Point Program.

13. Ukulele Ike
Picked up a collection of CliffUkulele IkeEdwards' tunes from the 20's yesterday, and holy fuck was this guy good. His stuff is midway between pleasant daydream and drug-buzzy nightmare, and all of it's great. I haven't read up on him yet, but I'm guessing he either had 16 wives and none of 'em knew about each other, or he killed a guy over a card game and spent the rest of his life on the run. The point is, GET INTO UKULELE IKE, PRONTO. (K)

12. Amityville II: The Possession
Burt Young is a meat head dad who moves his family into a demonically possessed  house. Every time the demon fucks the place up he blames his kids and beats them with a belt. The demon who is really fond of the oldest son, convinces him to kill his entire family. I'm not spoiling the plot cause this happens in the first 45 minutes. Than the movie spins off into the most unreal Exorcist rip off of all time. It's actually better than the first Amityville movie even though it's worse. Does that make sense? (S)

11. This Week in Doomsday Cults
Granted, “Academy for Future Health” is a terrible name for a cult, but from the sound of things, shit was getting heavy for ACFH. Basically it's a German group of UFO loons who are concerned with a “Galactic Super Electromagnetic Wave” (Awesome!) that may be wiping us out soon. Why they think they need guns to prepare is a mystery, though. How's a gun gonna help against a Galactic Super Electromagnetic Wave? Anyway, they were hiding out in the Dominican Republic, and then earlier this week they got into a gun battle with the local federales, and now their gooses are collectively cooked. Hopefully the jail cell will deflect the galactic wave? (K)

10. The Human Expression - Love At Psychedelic Velocity
More like Sex at Psychedelic Velocity. These punks will kidnap your daughter, dose her, ravage her teenage body and leave her dazed and confused out on the boulevard for the Manson family to pick her up. "Cause you're sick and it's wrong and baby it won't be long till they're reading your will"  What's with garage rock?  Every song is about how their girlfriend burned them, but also they are on acid, and speed. So it's  blind fucked up sexually frustrated stoner rage. You already love these Eddie Haskell creeps, from Nuggets, ya know, "Optical Sound", the ultimate hangover tune.  They turned down a chance to record "Born to be Wild" and faded. (S)

09. The Water Witch
Gloomy Brits laying down unsettling doomscapes of forest-dwelling black-prog. I'm super into it. Makes me wanna hunt monsters with a bow and arrow. (K)

08. The Frost - Rock 'n Roll Music

Pull tab beer cans, cheap hot dogs on the grill, bad acid, girls doing the loco motion on the hood of a 1964 Chrysler but it's 1970. Sub-Grand Funk nonsense from Michigan. It's good for the afternoon BBQ but not much else. (S)

7. Beware Mr. Baker
Upcoming documentary on Cream's flame-bearded madman drummer. Where's he been all these years? What's he up to? From the looks of things, he's mostly up to beating up documentary filmmakers. This doc looks awesome and terrifying in equal doses. Can't wait! (K)

06. Mainliner - Imaginative Plan
Buzzsaw guitar. You ever hear that before? Roy Orbison looking Jap-rock motherfuckers wielding chainsaws, I mean buzz saws. What is a buzz saw anyway? Mainliner was the offshoot of High Rise who really wanted to call themselves Psychedelic Speed Freaks, although most likely they were a straight edge band, because it's really a drag to do drugs in Japan from what I hear. They lock you up and throw away the key. Buzz rhymes with fuzz and fuzz is a primary color, so if you take a red crayola and draw a line through time from Blue Cheer in San Francisco you end up in Tokyo with Mainliner. (S)


 5. Ride Into the Sun
I can't actually figure out how to buy this killer new 7” single from sun-baked Australian psychers, but you can definitely download it for free on Bandcamp, and I heartily recommend you do so. Groovy and laidback, but with a Jesus and Mary Chain-esque bite and a cinematic atmosphere. Sweet. (K)

04. Zakary Thaks - From The Habit
Child molestation "Can you Hear your Daddy's footsteps",  the meaning of life itself "Mirror Of Yesterday",  and "Green Crystal Ties", well I'm guessing that's about drugs. right? All from Corpus Christi texas, a righteous place to be a hippie. (S)

03. Hexvessel
Like Water Witch, Hexvessel previously toiled in black metal, and the deep, dark woods vibe is still there, but this is actually really groovy dark-folk with jazzy horns and almost chant-y vocals. Elegantly spooky stuff. (K)

02. George Harrison: Living In the Material World
I don't care what Ken says, the Beatles are fuckin' cool (actually we have never talked about the Fab Four, ever, maybe he's their number one fan). Although they were the biggest band in the land they certainly shaped the axis for which the Advanced Demonological world revolves. The film is more of a tribute to everything good about the most psychedelic Beatle. Nothing bad. But that's OK. That's just what my man deserves. (S)

1. The Dolly Parton Pinball Machine
Way cooler than the Nuge game because boobs. (K)
