RARE TRACKS -a califone compilation.

Unread postby hanwaker » Tue Jan 01, 2008 2:04 pm

well i feel like the only one doing anything related to califone on this board .. but i am not to give up hope that others c/w-ould chime in..

over the last year i have compiled a list ( and a cdr) of rare red red meat and califone songs.. you know the ones that get away on compilations soundtracks and cdr added to magazines and books..
the list is quite impressive i feel..
as i do not want to spread any legally obtainable music on this board you would PM me if you have more than an interest in knowing what circulates..
the want list at the end is my main reason for posting this . i would love to see people telling me they have any of the wanted items.
furthermore if you have additions to the list they are more than welcomed. i do not declare this to be complete....

EDIT: i will edit below list once in a while to add the info from below comments.. i know that makes reading the comment section a bit surplus but keeps newcomers up-to-date.. of course new additions will not keep up with a chronological order

Red Red Meat & Polara
This record stems from a basic premise conceived during a trip to the men's washroom. While on tour Tim R from Red Red Meat and Ed A from Polara ran into each other and a challenge was issued. "We can do your songs!" "Oh yeah! Well we can do your songs!" Cool! It was like two bruisers lookin' for a milksop to pick on. It got nastier then a hot foot. Red Red Meat laid down their version of "Listening Now" from Polara's debut album. Then came Polara kickin' through the heart of glass on "Carpet Of Horses" from Red Red Meat's latest album "Bunny Gets Paid". The good lord won. This is one hell of a record. Buy it now, because they won't last long.
dual a-sided split 7" single : G-25

*5
TIM explains, “that song started out as a song called ‘Dreamless’ for the end credits of The Lost. The last scene in the film is a total bloodbath; after that it seemed like the film could use a little sweetness, a bit of salvation for these dark, misfit characters after a period of intense violence. We re-recorded it with Califone and took a more detailed approach, both lyrically and instrumentally. Where the first version felt more about balancing the mood of the film, the one from the album feels more about hope and joy, rebirth, survival and self-acceptance.”

*6
These two Sun remixes are polar opposites in both style and length; however, each serves it purpose well.
On "The Stereo," Califone takes a hold of non-album track, and extends the hell out of it. Chris' vocals play hide and seek all song - dropping under a fury of guitars for minutes at a time. The middle five minutes, leave the listener lost, but happy. It exists as a tunnel that connects the opening and closing melodies. On the way into the tunnel, everything is calm and collected - the vocals crisp and quick paced. However, once through the darkness, a unraveled vocal melody soon spirals into background screams.

*7
from the liner notes single on flydaddy FLY 019
recorded by b deck at idful
this split single is the beginning of an open-ended project.RRM and Number One Cup each started with the same recording of a distorted cowbell and built a song from that sonic foundation. others are encouraged to participate....

Califone, Sparhawk, Kozelek Help Do Presidential Songs
As do Wooden Wand, Charalambides' Tom Carter, Rosie Thomas, Denison Witmer

In most journalism circles, one of the biggest stories of the next year will be the 2008 U.S. presidential election, but since Obama, Clinton, and Giuliani have yet to form a shoegaze supergroup, we here at Pitchfork must stick to the Radiohead tour updates, Grizzly Bear collaborations, and indie rock nudity.
Nonetheless, Standard Recording Company has thrown us a bone in the politics department in the form of a three-CD box set tentatively titled Of Great and Mortal Men: 43 Songs About 43 U.S. Presidencies. The set's subject matter is apparent, and its backstory doesn't disappoint.
Christian Kiefer, Matthew Gerken (Nice Monster), and Jefferson Pitcher (ex-Above the Orange Trees) wrote nearly all of Of Great and Mortal Men's songs back in February 2006 as part of February Album Writing Month, a songwriting challenge to write 14 songs in 28 days. They pooled their efforts to pen a song apiece about all of the U.S. presidents (3 x 14 = 42, with the George W. Bush tune arriving later), and they came out of it with a heap of demos.
Then, they fleshed (and are fleshing) the songs out with studio contributions from Califone, Alan Sparhawk (Low), Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon/Red House Painters), Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice, Rosie Thomas, Denison Witmer, Marla Hansen (Sufjan Stevens's band), Vince DiFiore (Cake), and Tom Carter (Charalambides), among others.
Kiefer calls the resultant box set "a walk through American history and an inquiry into what makes us Americans as filtered through the lens of our highest public office. There's heartbreak and beauty and criticism and revelation. We're trying to make it work like a big beautiful historical novel."

Of Great and Mortal Men does not yet have a definite release date, but Standard plans to put it out in the summer. The tracklist is here (seriously, it's that simple). Susan Archie is scheduled to design the art for the box itself, and the package will come with 43 cards, each with an image of one of the presidents done by one of 43 different artists.

Finally, Standard will supplement the set with a 44th song, available next November following the election. As soon as the results are official, everyone who bought the box set can go to the label's website and download Mr. or Mrs. 44's song.

3<<<<<<<<<rank
"The Making of Rank: Bull Sessions" is a behind the scenes look at this unusual IFC documentary about the hazardous sport of bullriding
.http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?titl ... el=2621235

The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo mix is simple and of the location audio throughout with little enhancement and some interesting new music by The Unseen Hand. Extras include The Unseen Hand: Recording The Music For Rank and Cowtown: Bull Ridging Sessions featurettes, plus a decent feature length audio commentary by the makers.

The accompanying soundtrack is an interesting one, primarily made of up melodic piano playing and what sounds like a classical orchestra. Without viewing the film, the choice of music seems ill-fitting for the content, but somehow it actually works. While there is a bit of the expected country-ish twangs in the opening scenes, the final tune is more carnival oregon grinder than ten-gallon hat. One of the Special Features titled "The Unseen Hand: Recording the Music for Rank" shows that it is indeed a piano score that you are listening to.

Music by The Unseen Hand: featuring Wil Hendricks ( aka billy prince bonnie), Michael Krassner, and Tim Rutili
As for frontman Tim Rutili, he's been making much ado about soundtracking. A bull-riding documentary called Rank was scored by The Unseen Hand, a project made up of Rutili and Lofty Pillars members who, incidentally, also guest on the upcoming Califone record




CONTRIBUTIONS

Seth Kim-Cohen [Between Yelling and Sleep]
Open loops accept the impulsive signals fed into their greedy, repetetive mouths
by the trio of Tim Rutili (Califone, Red Red Meat), Brad Wood (Liz Phair, Shrimpboat,
excessive production work), and Seth Kim-Cohen (the Fire Show, Number One Cup).
In the end, something like Tricky producing Can backing a drunken Marvin Gaye.
Recorded xmas, 2006 at Brad's place in Los Angeles, CA. Mixed and edited over the
subsequent six months by Seth at Organ-Outfit, New Haven, CT.

"What's In California?" (15' 39")

"Zero for Neck" (21' 14")

Hey Hanwaker
I don't have any of the stuff on your wanted list, but there are a couple other things that could be added.

Gallow's Pole (I can't remember if this is just Rutili or Califone) - I'd really like to hear this but it requires the purchase of the whole CD even online.
-also-
Red Red Meat covers Flock of Seagull's 'Wishing (if I had a photograph of you)" on the flipside of Oxtail promo 7"
Red Red Meat - Disco Heathens (Free CD w/ Chemical Imbalance magazine (1995ish)


I'm curious about the stereo that you got on emusic. Is it instro? Maybe some of Mr. Rutili's film music?

That was SubPop disk SP5000, from 1995. Absolutely brilliant. I ebayed up a copy, but don't currently have a turntable, so no joy on the listening front.

That's a pretty impressive list. I have most of it, but there are a few I'm missing.

I've got the plum box set & RRM's cover of "Wishing" on vinyl, but at the moment, no way to convert them.

I've also got mp3s of the Wheat/Rutili song, RRM's Sad Peter Pan & Southern Accents & the Real Fun CD.

There's also an album called "Phoenician Terrane" by Bevel that features Tim and Michael Krassner on guitar / effects. It's on eMusic and iTunes.

I don't really know the details of the album beyond what is listed in the credits of the eMusic page (a search of emusic for 'rutilli' will take you there), but those are for the album as a whole, not track-specific.

The folks in Frankiln Delano are friends of the Perishable/Clava family. The guys met them in Italy and we all keep in some contact for tour support, networking, etc. Mr. Brian Deck mixed one FD record at Clava and recorded and mixed another at Engine Studios and at SOMA Electronic Music here in Chicago.

Good people, the Franklin Delano...

Califone also contributed an interpretation of James Joyce's poem "O, It is For My Love," to Fire Records' Chamber Music collection. The tune is also available on the label's sampler Children Are Fascinated By Fire, Vol. 1. Excellent track.

34 brent green + califone-- hadacol xmas (from the my space holiday compilation vol 1) ( 2007) 11+ minutes
35 RRM-- milk for the mechanics *7

and have the covers in a seperate listing

*6
additional info on 15 the sun----- the stereo--- a rutili mix -----downloaded on emusic-- no other info--mp3 *6

These two Sun remixes are polar opposites in both style and length; however, each serves it purpose well.
On "The Stereo," Califone takes a hold of non-album track, and extends the hell out of it. Chris' vocals play hide and seek all song - dropping under a fury of guitars for minutes at a time. The middle five minutes, leave the listener lost, but happy. It exists as a tunnel that connects the opening and closing melodies. On the way into the tunnel, everything is calm and collected - the vocals crisp and quick paced. However, once through the darkness, a unraveled vocal melody soon spirals into background screams.

from the liner notes single on flydaddy FLY 019
recorded by b deck at idful
this split single is the beginning of an open-ended project.RRM and Number One Cup each started with the same recording of a distorted cowbell and built a song from that sonic foundation. others are encouraged to participate....

Califone, Sparhawk, Kozelek Help Do Presidential Songs
As do Wooden Wand, Charalambides' Tom Carter, Rosie Thomas, Denison Witmer

In most journalism circles, one of the biggest stories of the next year will be the 2008 U.S. presidential election, but since Obama, Clinton, and Giuliani have yet to form a shoegaze supergroup, we here at Pitchfork must stick to the Radiohead tour updates, Grizzly Bear collaborations, and indie rock nudity.
Nonetheless, Standard Recording Company has thrown us a bone in the politics department in the form of a three-CD box set tentatively titled Of Great and Mortal Men: 43 Songs About 43 U.S. Presidencies. The set's subject matter is apparent, and its backstory doesn't disappoint.
Christian Kiefer, Matthew Gerken (Nice Monster), and Jefferson Pitcher (ex-Above the Orange Trees) wrote nearly all of Of Great and Mortal Men's songs back in February 2006 as part of February Album Writing Month, a songwriting challenge to write 14 songs in 28 days. They pooled their efforts to pen a song apiece about all of the U.S. presidents (3 x 14 = 42, with the George W. Bush tune arriving later), and they came out of it with a heap of demos.
Then, they fleshed (and are fleshing) the songs out with studio contributions from Califone, Alan Sparhawk (Low), Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon/Red House Painters), Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice, Rosie Thomas, Denison Witmer, Marla Hansen (Sufjan Stevens's band), Vince DiFiore (Cake), and Tom Carter (Charalambides), among others.
Kiefer calls the resultant box set "a walk through American history and an inquiry into what makes us Americans as filtered through the lens of our highest public office. There's heartbreak and beauty and criticism and revelation. We're trying to make it work like a big beautiful historical novel."

Of Great and Mortal Men does not yet have a definite release date, but Standard plans to put it out in the summer. The tracklist is here (seriously, it's that simple). Susan Archie is scheduled to design the art for the box itself, and the package will come with 43 cards, each with an image of one of the presidents done by one of 43 different artists.

"The Making of Rank: Bull Sessions" is a behind the scenes look at this unusual IFC documentary about the hazardous sport of bullriding
.http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?titl ... el=2621235

The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo mix is simple and of the location audio throughout with little enhancement and some interesting new music by The Unseen Hand. Extras include The Unseen Hand: Recording The Music For Rank and Cowtown: Bull Ridging Sessions featurettes, plus a decent feature length audio commentary by the makers.

The accompanying soundtrack is an interesting one, primarily made of up melodic piano playing and what sounds like a classical orchestra. Without viewing the film, the choice of music seems ill-fitting for the content, but somehow it actually works. While there is a bit of the expected country-ish twangs in the opening scenes, the final tune is more carnival oregon grinder than ten-gallon hat. One of the Special Features titled "The Unseen Hand: Recording the Music for Rank" shows that it is indeed a piano score that you are listening to.

Music by The Unseen Hand: featuring Wil Hendricks ( aka billy prince bonnie), Michael Krassner, and Tim Rutili
As for frontman Tim Rutili, he's been making much ado about soundtracking. A bull-riding documentary called Rank was scored by The Unseen Hand, a project made up of Rutili and Lofty Pillars members who, incidentally, also guest on the upcoming Califone record

Re: RARE TRACKS -a califone compilation.

Well done on the list and on the update. I've been on a buying binge of "various artists" projects involving the band, including some things on your (old) wanted list. I never would have heard of some of the stuff without your help. I'm almost to the point of buying a turntable for old-timey RRM goodness.

While I'm at it, I'll mention that although Heron King Blues is among the best albums ever, I still feel annoyed that I missed out on a bonus track, my fault I guess.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure that KRVX radio compilation has the same recording of "michigan girls" as "everybody's mother vol. 1".

It seems like I can't edit my last post.
Does anyone know anything about this CD?

The Absolute Middle of Nowhere, Volume 17
http://www.amazon.com/Absolute-Middle-N ... B0015QT2DY

Says it has "Flossie (Red Red Meat)". Does anyone know if this is an early/different version of "Sister Flossy", or even something else? I was unable to dredge up any good info.

the info on everybody's mother
reads10.11.03 kurx radio austin

the station is called kvrx and obviously this is a mispelling on the tracklisting for -EM-

a handwritten v doesn't differ so much from a u


i cannot say anything about the flossy issue.. sorry..
