Today’s Vegetables:
Hear Me? I Said Beat For The Feet!

by Kevin Vegetables on June 15, 2010

Lux Interior’s been gone for more than a year now, and his stature in my brain only increases. He and (Poison) Ivy (Rorschach) brought the dark weirdness back from the 50s and shoved it into our hearts.

But in addition to being the rock-and-roll superstars that they were, Lux & Ivy were also inveterate record collectors. (Kids, there once was a time when you couldn’t get anything you wanted immediately and actually had to move through physical space and make an effort to hear good music. Also, no reissues.)

Now all praise to Kogar The Swinging Ape for lovingly devoting himself to compiling mixes based on songs that Lux and Ivy mentioned in interviews, played over the PA before shows, or otherwise gave some sort of endorsement. The Lux & Ivy’s Favorites series is now at FOURTEEN volumes.

I’ve only just discovered these, and haven’t even gotten past Vol. 1, it’s so enjoyable. I could get a couple weeks’ worth of Vegetables out of just this one mix, but it’s really a lot more fair and quick to just point you to where you can wallow on your own:

Lux and Ivy’s Favorites Vols 1-11

Lux and Ivy’s Favorites Vol. 12

Lux and Ivy’s Favorites Vol. 13

Lux and Ivy’s Favorites Vol. 14

I couldn’t limit myself to just one song today, since there’s such a variety of sounds on these comps, so here’s two:

Ronnie Dawson – Action Packed (Y’hear me? Action packed! This song makes me want to say everything like that. I need to buy some paper towels. Y’hear me? Some paper towels!)

Donald Woods & The Vel-Aires – Death Of An Angel

… and to illustrate the joy of listening to a mix without looking at song titles, here’s a clip from another song on Vol. 1:

For more insight into the world of Lux & Ivy, listen to this amazing interview they did for WFMU’s Fool’s Paradise. It’s a great insight into their world, their love for doo-wop ballads, their experiences as thrift-store-record-bin freaks in Sacramento, why the 50s were way freakier than the 60s, and more. Again, crazy props to Kogar for hipping me.

This makes the impact of aggressive driving very obvious, and creates awareness in an automatic, effortless way which is crucial, says Ivo Vlaev, an experimental psychologist at Imperial College London in the UK. It falls in-between the extremes of calling attention to your speed and a perception of a possible risk. “This is where we open the door into a universe of nudging by influencing perceptions,” adds Hansen.

I’m not talking about Rupert Murdoch. He’s been doing the same thing for years and always getting the result he wanted. He comes away from yet another AGM with the dual roles of CEO and chairman firmly in hand. Also, the dual voting stock structure remains so that, though Rupert Murdoch and his family own approximately 12 percent of the shares, they hold 40 percent of the voting power. In essence, Rupert Murdoch and his family control the decisions and destiny of the company relatively unchallenged. Both Rupert Murdoch and News Corp board member Viet Dinh made abundantly clear during the board meeting that this was not going to change. Though the company has gone through the motions of appointing new independent directors, the choices suggest a not-so-subtle sense of humor: One of the new independent directors is the former president of Colombia, Alvaro Uribe, who was embroiled in a of his own.
