#30 The Jim Morrison Seance Tapes

We're not sure how the idea hatched but we know the concept doesn't need much of a set up... it's a live space improvisation during a Jim Morrison seance. Why not!? It's cheaper than a living singer (classified ads, lodging, alcohol) and besides... you know how lead singers are to deal with. Since Bono isn't dead yet, we thought, who better than poet/philosopher/comedian Jim Morrison? And so you don't think this is just something we slapped together with old recordings and ProTools, listen for yourself as the engineer asks Jim for the "post-death stuff... the stuff without copyrights." For those that don't buy the premise, we've included a bonus, 14-minute instrumental mix (minus Jim) from when it was called "Message From Fornax" for a few hours. In the end, Jimbo was fun, even if he did sound like he was drunk in Paris. It went smoother than our Screamin' Jay Hawkins seance, anyway.

Should I add that I hate the Doors? Or would that be inappropriate?

Hi people,
Just listened to this week's entries, don't know which was worse, listening to Jim talk over your plodding music or not having Jim to listen to while your plodding music went on? As Jim Belushi said "Just kidding Guy". Liked last weeks abridged outing better but then that's just me. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the comments and for listening. Thanks Amarok & Rho for the links and madness. Thanks scav, you need help. Jeff, there's that 'plodding' word again. If it wasn't true we'd be offended

Manzarek thinks Morrison's still alive, doesn't he?

IMI said...

Is this cover going to find it's way to a t?

Hey IMI,
Good idea... and done deal.
And thanks a million for the great (additional) plug over at Idle Minds Inc. We really appreciate it when bloggers promote what we're up to, but especially when they listen to us, too! Very kind and many thanks.

Hi guys,

Me again, was going to buy the PF Tee but when I saw that the store mentioned duty, I went "Oh Well, screwed again". MILF Island from 30 Rock wants almost what I paid in duty up here in CANADA. Where's the next session? Can't wait forever.

Jeff

We're Late For Class said...

Hi Jeff,

Bummer. Customs hits you up on $12? We thought small amounts were cool with Canada.

Jeff said...

How about $23.00 on a free replacement light for my pool. Customs=assholes. Pardon my French.

Jeff

We're Late For Class said...

Wow! We're in the wrong biz. Think they're hiring?

Dr. Schluss said...

Howdy,

I just got some posts for this and another one of your EPs up at my blog. Come check it out and thanks for the music! I've got some of my on my site two if you'd like to hear my little sonic corner of psychedelia.

Hi Doc,
Thanks a million, not just for the space but for the time you took to decipher our noise. We appreciate the write ups and the insight. We're also grabbing "Glaze of Cathexis" (as we speak) from your stash of personal recordings to start. Always interested in the ramblings of twisted minds. Many thanks again.

Thanks Chad.

AllyWonderland said...

Bono's alive?

We're Late For Class said...

We we're speaking physically, of course. Not artistically.

spacecat2500 said...

i think the rest of the members did better with american prayer...anyone can dick around and make spooky sounds to an iconic voice...try harder next time.

We're Late For Class said...

The next time would be #31 Transmissions 2: The LSD Sessions. Listen to that one and let us know if it meets with your approval.

We're Late For Class said...

All the way through, this time.
