Ain’t Nothing To Do

Dead Boys – Ain’t Nothing To Do (from the “Younger, Louder & Snottier” LP).mp3



I’m so sick of T.V.
You know, I’m getting bored of the tube
I’m so sick of romance
And I’m gettin’ real sick of you

I wanna get on out of here
Find me somethin’ to do
Yeah, get on outta here
Just aint nothin’ to do

I’m so sick of FM
I don’t play my stereo too
Just wanna get out on the street fights
Just aint nothin’ to do

I wanna get on out of here
Find me somethin’ to do
Yeah, get on outta here
Just aint nothin’ to do

There aint nothin’ to do
Gonna beat up the next hippie I see
Maybe I’ll be beatin’ up you
Look out, baby here I comes

Yeah, Punch out

There aint nothin’ to do
I’m gonna knock down the next old man I see
Maybe I’ll be knockin’ down you

There aint nothin’ to do
“Hey, Cheetah”
“Yeah Stiv”
“I’m bored, lets go pick up some Hilly Girls or something”

Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson R.I.P.

Friday, November 26th, 2010

Peter Martin Christopherson (a.k.a. Sleazy) è scomparso mercoledì scorso nella sua abitazione a Bangkok in Tailandia. Pare che sia morto durante il sonno. Sleazy è stato (fra l’altro) uno dei membri fondatori di varie bands della scena industrial inglese Throbbing Gristle (e della loro etichetta discografica Industrial Records), Coil e Psychic TV, nonchè grafico dell’agenzia di design Hipgnosis. Recentemente dopo il secondo scioglimento di TG, che stavano lavorando su un disco di cover di Nico (Desertshore), Sleazy faceva parte della band X-TG, nata dalle ceneri di TG.

Riposa In Pace


Peter Christopherson (Leeds, 27 febbraio 1955 – Bangkok, 24 novembre 2010) è stato un musicista, regista e designer inglese. Regista di video e grafico ex membro dell’influente agenzia di design britannica Hipgnosis.
Carriera [modifica]

È stato uno dei membri fondatori della band Throbbing Gristle negli anni settanta e come tale è considerato il padre della musica “industrial”. In seguito ha partecipato alla creazione degli Psychic TV con Genesis P-Orridge, a cui si è aggiunto Geoffrey Rushton, alias John Balance. Dopo un breve periodo con gli Psychic TV, Christopherson e Balance formarono i Coil, una partnership che durò 23 anni, fino alla morte accidentale di Balance nella loro casa di Weston-Super-Mare. Di recente Christopherson ha partecipato alla riunione dei Throbbing Gristle, ha composto un album per la sua ultima impresa da solista: The Threshold HouseBoys Choir ed ha creato un nuovo duo con Ivan Pavlov chiamato Soisong. Nel 2008 ha collaborato con musicisti e cantanti quali Ernesto Tomasini, Othon e David Tibet. Nell’ultimo periodo era impegnato a mettere insieme una nuova formazione dei Throbbing Gristle, chiamata XTG.

Come regista di video musicali Christopherson ha realizzato, fra i tanti, lavori per: Marc Almond, Diamanda Galàs, Barry Gibb, Paul McCartney e Robert Plant. Come grafico della Hipgnosis ha contribuito alla creazione di alcune fra le copertine di dischi più iconiche del ventesimo secolo, fra cui diverse per Peter Gabriel, i Led Zeppelin e i Pink Floyd. Come fotografo è stato il primo a fotografare i Sex Pistols.

KORG monotron synth

monotron – Analogue Ribbon Synthesiser

Analog on the go!
Analog synths were once massive, temperamental monsters; but no more! The true analog monotron fits in your pocket and is ready to play – anytime, anyplace. Although small enough to hold in one hand, the amazing monotron delivers ginormous and dazzling sounds. Best of all, it’s a blast to play. The controls have been streamlined for ease of use. Concentrating on the most important sound parameters, the panel contains only five knobs and one switch. With this level of simplicity, now anyone can easily enjoy the world of analog synthesizers.

Product Highlights:
Features the same classic analog filter found in the legendary Korg MS-10 & MS-20

Filter any external source using the audio input jack

Inspiring, easy-to-play ribbon keyboard

Intuitive, fun-to-tweak controls

Full-fledged, true analog synthesizer: VCO, VCF, LFO

LFO can modulate either pitch of filter cutoff

LFO Rate knob features cool LED visual indicator.

Battery operation and palmtop size equals true portability

Internal speaker/headphone jack lets you enjoy the sound anywhere – alone or with friends!

Ribbon controller keyboard offers easy expression
Borrowing the enjoyment of performing with a simple touch from Korg’s wildly popular KAOSS products, the monotron’s ribbon controller keyboard takes this ease of use even farther. Simple finger gestures can produce expressive effects such as vibrato and glide.

1VCO, 1VCF, 1LFO – Modular synthesis building blocks
The monotron’s circuit is radically simple: one voltage-controlled oscillator, one voltage-controlled filter, and one low frequency oscillator. As a result, the process of sound creation is intuitive, and instantly understandable. And it’s tons of fun. The monotron provides the joy of sonic creativity that’s at the heart of analog synthesis.

The famous Korg filter
The monotron starts with the same highly acclaimed VCF circuit as KORG’s classic MS-10 and original MS-20 semi modular synthesizers, and adds extra oomph to the resonance. Originally released over 30 years ago, these instruments are still coveted today for their aggressive, dynamic filters. The VCF Cutoff knob sets the frequency or tone of the filter; the VCF Peak (resonance) knob adds emphasis.

Semi modular satisfaction
Just as on the original MS-20, the monotron’s filter can be “patched into,” allowing any external audio source to be processed by the monotron’s filter. The input jack (AUX input) built into the monotron’s compact body inserts the AUX input into the signal path right before the VCF. This provides a great way to connect a KAOSSILATOR, a keyboard, a guitar, a digital audio player or even an un-mixed track to the monotron and enjoy tone-bending filter effects.

Versatile LFO provides audio – and visual – excitement!
The LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) can affect either the oscillator pitch or the filter cutoff. Both the speed and the intensity are individually adjustable, so you can create anything from a gentle vibrato to swooping tone changes of galactic proportions. As you turn the LFO Rate knob – featuring an embedded LED – the speed of the modulation effect and the speed of the blinking LED will change in tandem.

Listen anywhere – alone or with friends
The ultimate in compactness, the monotron includes a built-in miniature speaker. Along with the battery operation, this feature allows you to enjoy the monotron everywhere. There’s also a headphone output that you can use when creating sounds at home, for recording, or for connecting to an amplifier or PA system.
