It is my pleasure to be spinning Sven's new "sound of tiki" cd this Sat May 8th. 6pm to 9pm, Free.

Sven will be on hand to say a few words, and he will be selling copies of the cd,and signing them.

after I will be spining some vintage Exotica/Hawaiian,
and a bit of Mellow/tropical surf.

Say a few words!? Waitaminnit....
Of course I will! I couldn't do it at Jay's Trader Vic's evening, because I had caught Laryngitis on the plane home.

I could talk about how this CD is really something I always wanted to do, sort of the "Lost Chapter of the Book of Tiki", as I and my publisher TASCHEN had had plans to include an Exotica CD in the book, together with a whole chapter about Exotica music. But as the book's shape and page number became more defined, I had the alternative to cut out several pages from every chapter to stay under the page limit -or make one big overall edit, which became the Exotica chapter. Knowing that the Exotica genre had already been defined and written about extensively during the 90s, I opted for letting it and the CD go, to get more ART in to the book.

Here are some images from my earliest proposal for the book from 1992, when I was still considering calling it "In Search of Tiki":


This is a cut'n'paste mock-up for the cover concept, which Mark Ryden had agreed to do a painting for!

And here is the 1992 chapter index, which changed remarkably little from then to the book's publication in 2000:

Note the last chapter is "Exotica"

And last not least a proposal page from that chapter, just a loose cut'n'paste assemblage of LP covers:



So now, ten years after it was edited out, the LOST CHAPTER of the BOT is finally published -not as a book with a CD, but as a CD with a book!

To illustrate that last statement, here for those who have not seen it, the U-Tube promo for the CD/Booklet:

Very cool images bigbro, an interesting glimpse into how your BOT ideas came about in their early stages and were later transformed into what we all know of as the Book of Tiki.

I'm doing something in the afternoon to evening, but will try to get there after as I couldn't make the Trader Vic's thing and definitely want to get Sven's CD (then see some Boardwalkers after).

Jeff / Sven / JP - I really wish we could make this, but we have family flying into town this week, and have several family gatherings this weekend as a result. We'll look forward to hearing / buying the CD soon!

Well I received the 3 copies I bought on Amazon but I gave them as gifts already. I really would like to have Sven sign my copy but I'm tending Bar at the Tonga Hut until 9 so I will miss this great event.
Sven, when will I be able to catch you again out Valley way if at all? Maybe the 8Ball?
