Right on Kono. It's not easy to be a member of that 1% that hasn't sold out to "The Man" but I'd like to think it's worth it. I still cling to my copies of Do It!, Soul On Ice and Howl. The Fugs, MC5, Fraternity of Man & David Peel & the Lower East Side still spin on the the turntable and reality is still for people who can't handle drugs. (BTW, most of my heros are DEAD).

Brothers and sisters,
I wanna see a sea of hands out there.
Let me see a sea of hands!
I want everybody to kick up some noise.
I wanna hear some revolution out there,
brothers.
I wanna hear a little revolution.
Brothers and sisters,
the time has come
for each and every one of you
to decide whether you are gonna be
the problem
or whether you are gonna be
the solution.
You must choose, brothers,
you must choose.
It takes five seconds,
five seconds of decision.
Five seconds to realize
your purpose here on the planet.
It takes five seconds
to realize that its time to move.
It's time to get down with it. Brothers,
it s time to testify and I want to know,
are you ready to testify?
Are you ready?
I give you a testimonial...
The MC5!

WAITS FIGHTS ADVERTISERS OVER OPEL AD
Singer/songwriter Tom Waits is considering legal action against a European advertising company after they used music similar to his in a new car ad campaign.

Waits insists a new Danish ad for the Opel car line uses music and a vocal resembling his own.

In a statement released through his record label Epitaph, Waits says, "In answer to the many queries I have received: No, I did not do the Opel car commercial currently running on TV in Scandinavia.

"I have a long-standing policy against my voice or music being used in commercials and I have lawyers over there investigating my options.

"If I stole an Opel, Lancia or Audi, put my name on it and resold it, I'd go to jail, but over there they ask, you say 'No,' and they hire impersonators. They profit from the association and I lose -- time, money, and credibility."

Waits has successfully fought several European advertisers representing car firms like Lancia and Audi who have aped his distinctive voice and unique style for commercials.


******************************

I *heart* Tom Waits!

It surprising that any ad agency would say something like, "Hey, I know who we can use to sell our sporty new car: Tom Waits!"

Blank stares.

"C'mon, doesn't our new SUX-9000 just scream 'eccentric, whiskey-voiced, avant-garde, haunted-carnival-music troubador???'"
--------

But then again, I would find it unbearably funny if they wanted to use "Jockey Full of Bourbon".

It might sound a little like this...
Quote:
Step right up, step right up, step right up
Everyone's a winner, bargains galore
That's right, you too can be the proud owner
Of the quality goes in before the name goes on
One-tenth of a dollar, one-tenth of a dollar, we got service after sales
You need perfume? we got perfume, how 'bout an engagement ring?
Something for the little lady, something for the little lady
Something for the little lady, hmm
Three for a dollar
We got a year-end clearance, we got a white sale
And a smoke-damaged furniture, you can drive it away today
Act now, act now, and receive as our gift, our gift to you
They come in all colors, one size fits all
No muss, no fuss, no spills, you're tired of kitchen drudgery
Everything must go, going out of business, going out of business
Going out of business sale
Fifty percent off original retail price, skip the middle man
Don't settle for less
How do we do it? how do we do it? volume, volume, turn up the volume
Now you've heard it advertised, don't hesitate
Don't be caught with your drawers down
Don't be caught with your drawers down
You can step right up, step right up
That's right, it filets, it chops, it dices, slices
Never stops, lasts a lifetime, mows your lawn
And it mows your lawn and it picks up the kids from school
It gets rid of unwanted facial hair
it gets rid of embarrassing age spots
It delivers a pizza, and it lengthens, and it strengthens
And it finds that slipper that's been at large under the chaise lounge(2) for several weeks
And it plays a mean Rhythm Master
It makes excuses for unwanted lipstick on your collar
And it's only a dollar, step right up, it's only a dollar, step right up
'Cause it forges your signature
If not completely satisfied, mail back unused portion of product
For complete refund of price of purchase
Step right up
Please allow thirty days for delivery, don't be fooled by cheap imitations
You can live in it, live in it, laugh in it, love in it
Swim in it, sleep in it
Live in it, swim in it, laugh in it, love in it
Removes embarrassing stains from contour sheets, that's right
And it entertains visiting relatives, it turns a sandwich into a banquet
Tired of being the life of the party?
Change your shorts, change your life, change your life
Change into a nine-year-old Hindu boy, get rid of your wife
And it walks your dog, and it doubles on sax
Doubles on sax, you can jump back Jack, see you later alligator
See you later alligator
And it steals your car
It gets rid of your gambling debts, it quits smoking
It's a friend, and it's a companion
And it's the only product you will ever need
Follow these easy assembly instructions it never needs ironing
Well it takes weights off hips, bust, thighs, chin, midriff
Gives you dandruff, and it finds you a job, it is a job
And it strips the phone company free take ten for five exchange
And it gives you denture breath
And you know it's a friend, and it's a companion
And it gets rid of your traveler's checks
It's new, it's improved, it's old-fashioned
Well it takes care of business, never needs winding
Never needs winding, never needs winding
Gets rid of blackheads, the heartbreak of Psoriasis(3)
Christ, you don't know the meaning of heartbreak, buddy
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon
'Cause it's effective, it's defective, it creates household odors
It disinfects, it sanitizes for your protection
It gives you an erection, it wins the election
Why put up with painful corns any longer?
It's a redeemable coupon, no obligation, no salesman will visit your home
We got a jackpot, jackpot, jackpot, prizes, prizes, prizes, all work guaranteed
How do we do it, how do we do it, how do we do it, how do we do it
We need your business, we're going out of business
We'll give you the business(4)
Get on the business end of our going-out-of-business sale
Receive our free brochure, free brochure
Read the easy-to-follow assembly instructions, batteries not included
Send before midnight tomorrow, terms available
Step right up, step right up, step right up
You got it buddy: the large print giveth, and the small print taketh away
Step right up, you can step right up, you can step right up
C'mon step right up
(Get away from me kid, you bother me...)
Step right up, step right up, step right up, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon
Step right up, you can step right up, c'mon and step right up
C'mon and step right up

"Step Right Up" is a real classic. Figures that's the song Frito Lay got busted for imitating. I love the lines:

We need your business, we're going out of business
We'll give you the business
Get on the business end of our going-out-of-business sale

In a quickie Google search I found this recent article on 20 albums that influenced Waits' music:

I saw a car commercial (Mitsubishi, I think) yesterday that featured Devo's "Uncontrollable Urge," which gave me an uncontrollable urge to turn of the TV.
