Another way you could help educate people on why this is important is Tutorspree’s Explain SOPA minisite. They’ll connect you with people who don’t understand it. Send them the video and answer their questions.

Tom Ardolino (January 12, 1955 – January 6, 2012)

Thomas Robert “Tom” Ardolino (January 12, 1955 – January 6, 2012) was a rock drummer best known as a member of NRBQ (New Rhythm and Blues Quartet). Ardolino was initially a fan of the band, and began corresponding and trading tapes with keyboardist and co-founder Terry Adams. On one occasion, original NRBQ drummer Tom Staley did not return for an encore, and Adams invited Ardolino to fill in. Ardolino performed well enough that when Staley left the band in 1974, his bandmates agreed that Ardolino was the natural choice as successor.[1] Ardolino remained in the lineup until the band went on hiatus in 2004, returning for occasional reunion performances, and lending his support when Adams decided to reclaim the NRBQ name for a new band in 2011. While lead vocals were generally performed by other members of NRBQ, live shows often included a moment where Ardolino would take the spotlight and sing, either with a karaoke backing track or with one of the other band members drumming.

Ardolino was a resident of Springfield, Massachusetts, and he appeared in a promotional video to campaign for the world premiere of The Simpsons Movie in Springfield.

Ardolino’s solo album “Unknown Brain” was released in 2004 on CD by Bumble Bee Records, Japan and on vinyl LP in the USA on Mystra Records. The album consists mostly of basement recordings made in 1971-72. The cover states “WARNING: If out-of-tuneness bothers you, do not listen.”[2]

Ardolino was also an avid collector of song poems, having contributed to the “MSR Madness” series of compilations.

In December of 2011 nrbq.com posted the following news “Tom Ardolino is presently dealing with a number of health issues and is expected to be in the hospital for some time.” He died on January 6, 2012 at a Springfield, Massachusetts hospital. Later that day, a post on the NRBQ Headquarters page on Facebook read, “We regret to inform you that Tom Ardolino passed away today. Tom will be missed but his spirit lives on through those who were touched by him.” [3][4] An article from the Washington Post later specified the cause as diabetes.[5]

Song-Poem AdsThe Film

 

This music has everything in the world going against it. It's completely artificial, it's a scam, it's ... you know, I could probably list 15 different reasons why it shouldn't work. But, for some reason, something comes through all this stuff. And I think that's part of the charm and attractiveness that it has. - Ellery Eskelin, musician and son of song-poem auteur Rodney Keith EskelinOFF THE CHARTS: The Song-Poem Story is a fascinating, at times unsettling, documentary that exposes the strange underworld of the song-poem industry. In this little known subculture, “ordinary people” respond to come-on ads on the back pages of magazines, mailing in their heartfelt but often bizarre poems to “music industry” companies that, for a fee, turn those poems into real recordings. OFF THE CHARTS explores a truly unique, never-before-seen slice of Gothic Americana through interviews with several song-poem writers, the jaded producers and musicians who set their words to music, and a few of the growing number of zealous song-poem connoisseurs.Embedded media — click here to see it.

 

Meet the some of the song-poets and the musicians who set their lyrics to music.

 

Like a warped fun-house mirror, the song-poem industry has run parallel to the mainstream music business for close to a century; it’s estimated that over 200,000 song-poems have been recorded since 1900. The genre’s durability can be traced to three American desires – to be in show business, to get rich quick and to share and express the deepest of feelings. Several of the “songwriters” are introduced – from an elderly woman to a young African American man to a small-town Iowan with big-time dreams – each of whom has been in the “business” for a while, churning out odd compositions that cover the waterfront of American obsessions, from Jesus to genitalia, from politics to Elvis. The film also features the producers (often known as “song-sharks”) who hold out the tantalizing promise of fame to their eager customers, and the has-been musicians who sit in studios, day after day, year after year, interpreting some of the weirdest lyrics ever written.

 

As filmmaker Jamie Meltzer says, “The beauty of song-poems is that they are a result of the intersection, or collision, of ordinary people’s expressions and the desires of musicians/businesses to make a quick buck, making the music as fast as they can, usually in one take. When those two forces combine, they create strangely compelling songs that are unlike anything you’ve ever heard.”

Thank goodness that few of the professionals of the song-poem industry have the same squeamishness about ‘prostitution’ that Rod Rodgers had. They’re earning an honest living while giving people the joy of having their ‘songs’ produced.
Some of us worry about being worthy of creating things, and we worry about whether all conditions are ideal before we begin the process. Some people give no heed to such petty concerns and follow their muses, no matter how insane, untalented, or stoned! That is just beautiful.

As a musician, producer, record collector and dj born in the late 80’s I had no idea this Song Poem Story thing existed. WOW!!!!
Its truly amazing that these people (song writers) are so passionate about what they are doing, yet so insecure about it and so distasteful. It even more amazing how these company owners are able to produce this music nearly on the spot and make a living off this. Its absurd how people treat music and view it…
I wasn’t sure weather to be happy or sad for the man who played his first gig at the country event with his son. Im just speechless at this point….ive played so many time feeling insecure about my own performance, but now i dont think i have any reason to be insecure about by abilities..

Indy lens is definitely one of the best shows, no matter what they are focusing on.. I appreciate hulu jumping on the band-wagon and playing these as they were originally shown- sans commercials (esp as most shows on hulu are ruined with obnoxiously loud ads).
It is easier to watch here… easier to find. But, since there are many more in this series, if anyone likes these; go to PBS.org to see what else is there.
Oh, and Nathan (last reviewer), PBS is a “regular, non-cable, channel”, so you should be able to see many more great shows there. Indy lens is generally on Tuesday nights! Just a bit of an fyi for you and for others unaware of this.

I was blown away. This is too bizarre to NOT be real! Your film shows with gentle brush strokes, the lengths to which people without the wherewithal to realize their most over-blown dreams, will go, in hopes of being recognized and heard. I like that you were compassionate and didn’t ridicule these people. While it does feel like a scam, there are people out there who will be lifted up by simply receiving a “professionally” recorded copy of their lyrics. To the song-poets, I say keep on writing. A foolish dream is really only foolish to the cynic who prefers to judge others for being courageous enough to try when they themselves haven’t ever been out of their comfort zone!

Regarding your comment on songwriter Chaw Mank. His real name was Charles Mank Jr. He acquired his nickname because his little sister Gloria couldn’t pronounce Charles, hence it came out “Chaw-Chaw,” or “Chaw.”

 

Chaw Mank (1902-1985) was more than a songwriter. He could also legitimately claim the following titles: book author, newspaper columnist, sheet music publisher, record label owner, radio personality, silent movie theater organist, music teacher, Hollywood fan club pioneer, inveterate collector and pen pal. It wasn’t unusual for Chaw to receive more than 10,000 letters annually.

 

My feature “Chaw Mank and the World of Entertainment” — published in now-defunct Illinois Magazine — profiled the Staunton, Illinois, native. I purchased the remainder of Chaw’s estate in the 1990s and it was loaded with memorabilia spanning an array of celebrities from the world of motion pictures, radio, television and music.

 

Chaw was heavily involved in the song-poet business, but he also penned or co-penned songs recorded by such country music artists as Lloyd “Cowboy” Copas and The Country Gentlemen. Chaw was definitely one-of-a-kind!

WOW. What a great documentary into another aspect of the music industry. Everyone can realize their songs as they want – using the expertise and experience of the musicians and composers that are involved in making their dreams happen. The thing I think about when viewing this documentary is . . . what goes on with these musicians and composers that make other peoples dreams come true? What about these people (the musicians and composers) that put countless hours into learning their art, their instruments, learning music theory, and then making these songs come to life for the clients?? The documentary trivializes their role, and even demonizes their participation in making other peoples dreams realized. If you watch the end of the film you’ll see that the musicians that make the whole thing come together are marginalized and abused. If you were screamed at or cursed at work, most would say that it was abuse – but if you are a musician, then you are doing your job. This documentary graphically illustates this reality.

I watched the song poem story a little while ago for my first time. At first I though it was a joke and the writers were just out to get a good laugh. Although a laugh is very common in the movie, after watching it more and more i started to become inspired by these people. They are all creative in their own way but they don’t have the resources to make their dreams come true. They make the best of what they have and I find that their dignity is unbelieveable. The song poem story inspired me to write a few myself. The companies responded with the outmost kindness and respect and I thought it was very professional. Even if these songs don’t become a hit the pride you get in knowing you wrote a song is undescribable. I just want to thank them for making a dream become a great reality for me. Thank You.

I’ve watched “Off The Charts” five times now and am watching it again tonight. I love it that the average person has a chance to do something creative. This movie is an inspiration to all of us who have theat creative spark but don’t know what to do with it.

 

Especially is inspiring is the story of Gary Forney and his Iowa Mountain Tour. I’ve visited his website and am so happy to see his has managed to build a career on his dreams. He has inspired me to follow my dreams as well. He is an incredible man.

 

I am so happy that the filmmakers treated their subject with diginity reather than humor. I was expecting cruelty, but the film is sincere, uplifting and poignant.

Its sweet dudes that like Gary Forney and David Fox that keep me blasting away on my 8-track. **** Irony and kitch, listen closely to the brilliant hoser (as i call it in reference to logical chord progressions) efficiency in “The Thing” or the circular riffing in “three eyed-boy” to see what I mean.

I have rented this film from Netflix several times this year and have taken it on 3 different tours. It has become the hit of the bus. As a musician, I have a lot of respect for these men and women. Some of it is bizarre, but creative as hell! Great job on this film. Keep up the great work.

This is the American Dream – for the writers and the producers. $200 – $400? A small price to pay for turning a writer’s dream into reality. Crank out 30 of these a day, and the hard-working folks on the production side are making a living in the music biz. Everybody wins.

I have known many musicians in bands who were signed to labels, had to change their name, change their music, and then pay back the label for production costs. Now that’s a scam! So, in the end, the song-poem industry is not that different from the record industry in general. Of course, the irony is that song-poem music is usually more entertaining than “real” hits.

For many years I have been dealing with a studio..who have given me false hopes..How sad your Poem song story made me. A mock before family and friends And humileating. What a rip off. and what about the Poetry Swap records listed over the web of past writers that are full of dreams. Still this is an underhanded way of taking peoples’ money-preying on their hopes and dreams. It quashes the spirt of so many writers, this was hurtful to me in a way.. I will take courage to reveal my love for words of Language elsewhere. iam finally through with the studio Ive dealed with for 20 years or more.

I saw the documentary Off The Charts on PBS and loved it. I viewed it a few times on my PVR and liked the music (when I like a song, it plays in my mind). I went on the net and downloaded some song-poem MP3s that I could find to hear some more. Most of them were kitchy and funny until I heard Rodd Keith’s ‘Ecstacy To Frenzy’. I wasn’t laughing anymore. I was amazed by how truly great that song is and the artist who made it. This genre of music is not a joke and I hope to find more great music like it. My compliments to the filmmaker and PBS for putting this excellent documentary on TV.

VAN DEE GARNER: Van Garner is a long time friend of mine. His wife is currently in the hospital for hip surgery. Several people have expressed interest in Van and his music. I will not give his phone or address here, but anyone concerned may contact me and I will give the information. Van, himself, is not in the best of health. I value Van as an old friend. His songs “Night Time Whispers” etc along with his poetry are very special to me! I am proud to know several of the people involved in “Off The Charts” personally. Van, Jamie, Art/David. A hidden reward of all this madness are dear friends. Please contact Van through me, I will relay your letters.

I recently saw the documentary Off the Charts: The Song-Poem Story on PBS. I thought it was amazing. I didn’t see the whole thing though, I saw from the part about the kung-fu bicycles guy until the end. Some of the people were so sad. I felt torn between hating the song-poem guys for praying on the innocent and respecting them for kind-of providing a service for alot of people who need to feel like they have a chance of accomplishing something. I also couldn’t help but laugh at some of the songs. My personal favorites were The Thing, Non-Violent Tae Kwon Do Troopers, and Chicken Insurrection. I told my brothers about it and I can’t wait until they can see it.

Great job again, PBS!! Your knack for (and grasp of) quality programming never ceases to amaze. I think the musician/arrangers on the production end of these song-poems are providing a terrific service by helping a lot of people, with something to say, feel good about getting up in the morning… and the more off-beat, the better!! If more people had a positive, creative outlet for their self-expression, we’d all be a lot better off…so thank-you to these folks for making it happen…and Arthur Kaufman (aka “David Fox”) really is a fox!! And what a voice! THANK YOU PBS!

THANK YOU a million times for this great film. Like the Ed Wood Jr. movie a few years back, it’s one of those things I never thought I’d live to see made into a film. I hope this puts the name Rodd Keith in the pantheon of musical geniuses where he belongs.

 

The genre of Song Poem music is the only truly avant garde folk music left in America. It’s sincere, strange, funny and beautiful, all at once – what more could you ask for?

 

How can I get recordings of Van Garner’s songs, he is absolutely wonderful! There should be spoken word recordings of him, too, he has the greatest voice. His kindness and warmth as a human being came through so vividly in the film. I want to know how to send fan mail to some of these people, they deserve encouragement and support, especially someone as talented as Mr. Garner. Caglar was fantastic, too, I’d like to get ahold of recordings of his songs – but how?

This is, without a doubt, one of the most fascinating programs I have ever seen on PBS. I know and have known so many people who could have and may have taken advantage of an opportunity like this. As a former radio announcer and disc jockey, I became very familiar with many types of popular music, good and bad. The individuals depicted in this program are living at least a part of their dreams to the best of their abilities. To the extent that each of them deserves and earns some degree of deep personal satisfaction, these businesses are helpful.

I started watching “Charts” slightlity after it started and spent a great deal of time trying to figure out if it was a brilliant spoof, ala “Spinal Tap,” but in the end it was just plain brilliant. It reminded me of Morris’s “Gates of Heaven,” but with even more punch. Films like this show us how there is nothing weirder, or more wonderful, than just plain folks.

I stumbled onto watching “Off The Charts” purely by chance, and was so glad I did! As a record collector, watching the film made me ecstatic. There are gems out there – earnest songs written by earnest people and the effect is dizzying for some of these songs are hilarious, and some are truly gorgeous. All of them come from a very sincere place, and watching some of the collectors play their favorites and the musicians reminisce made me misty with record geek pride. It’s a beautiful film filled with treasures which I can’t wait to explore as soon as I get my hands on the compilations. Thanks to the filmmaker and PBS.

This was brilliant. That tiny, fascinating snippet of “Little Rug Bug” pretty much convinced me that the late composer Rodd Keith deserves a whole documentary of his own. If you’re the kind of music lover who’d rather take a chance on some obscure thrift shop 45s than subject yourself to the boy-band-du-jour, this well-done film opens up a whole new field of collecting and listening…and maybe a creative outlet for your least-commercial impulses, too. (In a perfect world, that “Annie Oakley” tune would be right beside Beck and the Bugaloos on my admittedly warped CD shelf. Please release a soundtrack!)

It was the most brilliant thing I’ve seen in ages and I haven’t been able to get the songs, the singers, and the perfect pitch of the piece out of my head.The kindness with which the subjects were treated made them all so real and wonderful.

 

Please let me know how I might get a copy to show to all those sick to death of hearing me hum “Non-Violent Taekwondo Troopers” and gushing about “that gem of a documentary I watched Friday night”.
Thanks ever so.

After an all-too strenuous, commercialized Valentine’s Day, I was so pleased to come home and turn on a show that really did speak to the human heart (…and, might I add, feline, canine, monkey and cockatiel!!) I’ve always looked to PBS as one of the last signs of intelligent life on TV, but this documentary was truly extraordinary! The “song-producers” were so keenly tuned into their clients’ lyrics/desires– it was almost uncanny…I especially liked the Magic Key production of “Annie Oakley”, and, if that was Mr. Kaufman (“David Fox”) singing– here’s to a warm and engaging voice!! And the filmaker,Mr. Meltzer, was so astute in what he captured…I hope we hear more from him too!! THANK YOU PBS/KCET!!

2/18/03
I was only half paying attention to the tv when suddenly I realized what a great film I was missing. Fascinating and wonderfully bizarre. I am a musician and know many people who would love this film also…I must have it! If anyone knows if it’s available on video or DVD please let me know.

The sign of a well-done documentary is one that contains a minimum of sentiment and shows respect for the subject. Varied and plentiful material and clean editing made this an outstanding documentary. Some people I talked to were touched by the ambition of the subjects; others were amused at the absurdity of their vision of themselves. Great work all around.

I can’t imagine the content of this documentary (the interviews, “characters”, stories, etc.) being more entertaining or provocative. The mantra I kept repeating over and over again as I sat in my living room watching this film was, “you couldn’t write this shit”! At the risk of offending the filmmakers, “Off The Charts” looked like what would happen if Todd Solondz and Michael Moore teamed up to make a new reality show for FOX (of course, since there is intelligence behind it, FOX would have to cancel it immediately). Kudos especially to whomever did the research…once again, “you couldn’t write that shit”. Thanks!

I too would be interested in a soundtrack CD. I have a copy of “Beat of the Traps” from a friend and have loved these tunes for a while. Thank you so much for documenting these free spirits. Caglar ROCKS!!!! I’d rather listen to these people’s unique, unpredictable tunes than any dull slick boring crap by Celine Dion or Justin Timberwhatever, especially as we watch “American Idol” try to find more Britneys and Justins–as if one weren’t enough. There is too much Christina Aguilera and not enuf Annie Oakley on the radio!!

I had never heard of song poems until february 11th when I stumbled across the “Off the Charts” program. I was absolutely mesmerized! I was speachless. As i watched i was torn between feelings of being embarrased and yet being somewhat jealous of the raw, inonocent, simplicity of the writers. how awesome it must feel to hear your words made legitimate in a recorded song.

I really enjoyed Off The Charts and am really glad I got to see it. I produced a concert series in my hometown and got submissions from hundreds of bands and artists who wanted to advance their careers through my little project. I definitely felt a continuum between the emerging artists I’ve dealt with and those featured in the film. I would say, however, that many of the song-poem artists appear to have no idea of the distinction between the production houses they deal with and actual music publishers and labels; they seem to have no idea about how far from commercial viability they are. To me the whole scene speaks to the power of technology: our words and musical ideas seem validated or enhanced by hearing them reproduced mechanically. That affect may be as true for Brittney Spears as for Gary Hormey. (in her case, we equate ubiquity with value, but it may be the power of the mass marketing we are reacting to as much as the art; the medium is the message).

I was frustrated and chagrinned to find out that someone else had already had the idea of writing a song about ‘Ginseng Digger’. I had that idea too and was composing a song of my own. It was very similar to the one presented in the film. My next song will be about about my favorite cereal, ‘Crispy Hexagrains’. Peace to Caglar

I turned on PBS about twenty minutes into the film, so I missed the initial set-up, but I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen for the rest of it. I am a filmmaker, and I especially love documentaries, particularly those that focus on an obscure subject rich with character. I was laughing so hard during a couple of scenes, that my girlfriend came down to see what was going on, and watched the rest of the film with me. We both are excited about seeing it from the beginning at its next airing. Great film, Jamie!

God bless these song-poets and this film! These compositions are a wonderful testament to the na�ve splendor of the American heart. To my mind, the only thing that could have improved this broadcast was if Angela Basset had performed an impromptu song-poem instead of delivering a stale reading of her cue card.

I was floored by this show. It made me smile, it made me cringe, yet as a songwriter, I felt empathy for every well intentioned stab at stardom, modest as it was, on the part of every person in the film. It is a brilliant and intimate look at a cultural slice that has (in some cases, fortunately) flown under the radar of modern culture. I would love to buy a copy of this film when it becomes available. Nice work.

How very nice of Sheryl Clapton to say she is former backup singer. Sheryl is very talented.
A sound track album would be cool. I think that it might take a dozen CD’s though as there is a ton of this music. I, also, have heard that several people were all thinking of “companion” CD’s..etc.
I have rights to my own songs and am thinking of just a little CD of my own stuff. Anyone interested can Email me. ( I am only in this songpoem stuff for the fame,money,women, etc. He said before rolling on floor laughing )
But, hey! It is cool that Songpoems are moving into the light. Who knows. Jamie told me he didn’t think his film would change the world… He might be wrong!

is there a soundtrack available by any chance? i would pay hard cash for some of those songs.

I do live in the shadow world of the songpeom industry! But, think “Off The Charts” will shed some light into that world.
SongPoems have existed for over 100 years. I surprised that no one other than Jamie Meltzer thought to explore the people and “songs”. Well worth watching!

Hometown: Elmira, NY, home of Mark Twain and birthplace of Tommy Hilfiger
Songs include: “Annie Oakley,” “Non-Violent Taekwondo Troopers,” “Bruce Lee’s Daughter”
Alter ego: “Captain Bicycle”
Favorite lyrics:
“I have taken a vow of celibacy until marriage
But if Annie was to tempt me into her carriage
I might lose to Miss Oakley – it’s not funny
Annie is one of my historical honeys.”

listenListen to a clip of the song “Non-Violent Taekwondo Troopers”

Hometown: Lives in Avoca, IA with his wife Bonnie, son Josh and daughter Laura
Songs include: “Caravan,” “Three Eyed Boy,” “Chicken Insurrection”
Favorite lyrics:
“What are we doing here, where are we going to
Caravan
Tell me if you can, what is the big plan
Everywhere we go everyone we know seems to be Insane.”

listenListen to a clip of the song “Caravan”

 

Mucisians/Composers

 

Art Kaufman

 

My girlfriend at the time named my alter ego David Fox. Because my middle name was David and she thought I was a fox.

Bob GruenBob Gruen was friends with John and Yoko almost from the moment they arrived in New York City in 1971. Gruen, who has photographed Tina Turner, Joe Strummer, Green Day, and Ozzy Osborn, among dozens of other bands, has perhaps the most complete record of John’s time in New York. He took the two iconic photos of John Lennon from this period: the New York City t-shirt photo, and John in front of the Statue of Liberty.

When You’re Strange, a film about The Doors

About The Film

“The story of The Doors is one of the most compelling in the history of American rock music; three hugely talented musicians and a lead singer whose commitment to artistic freedom was so intense he rocketed them to a success that always hovered on the edge of chaos. As an independent filmmaker this sensibility affected me greatly.”
– Tom DiCillo, director and writer, When You’re Strange

The creative chemistry of four brilliant artists – drummer John Densmore, guitarist Robby Krieger, keyboardist Ray Manzarek and singer Jim Morrison – made The Doors one of America’s most iconic and influential, theatrical and mysterious, thrilling and sometime frightening rock bands. Narrated by Johnny Depp, American Masters: When You’re Strange is the first feature documentary about The Doors, premiering nationally Wednesday, May 12, 2010 at 9 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings). The film tells their story using only original footage – much of it previously unseen – shot between their formation in 1965 and Morrison’s death in 1971. “From the outset I decided to use only original footage of this astonishing band,” says Tom DiCillo, director and writer of When You’re Strange. “To me, there is nothing more powerful and riveting that seeing Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, John Densmore and Jim Morrison leap into life on the screen.”

Watch a preview of the film:

The program chronicles the creation of The Doors six landmark studio albums and follows the band from the corridors of UCLA’s film school, where Manzarek and Morrison originally met, onto the stages of their electrifying sold-out performances – giving time and attention to every one of their groundbreaking, chart topping songs.

Currently in its 24th season, American Masters is a production of THIRTEEN in association with WNET.ORG – one of America’s most prolific and respected public media providers.

“We’re very excited to bring the story of The Doors to public television, says Susan Lacy, series creator and executive producer of American Masters, a seven-time winner of the Emmy Award for Outstanding Primetime Non-Fiction Series. “Like the times in which they performed, The Doors were unpredictable and emotionally charged. Their music, songs such as ‘Break on Through’ and ‘Light My Fire’ have stood the test of time, grabbing generation after generation of contemporary music lovers.”

“Tom DiCillo’s When You’re Strange is a meticulously crafted, exhilarating ode to one of music’s greatest ensembles, The Doors,” says Johnny Depp. “Watching the hypnotic, hitherto, unreleased footage of Jim, John, Ray and Robby, I felt like I experienced it all through their eyes. Here, Jim has been resurrected to remind us that he is to this very day, one of the most significant frontmen/poets/shaman to ever grace a stage while the band behind him kept the music alive, adding fuel to an already raging ride into history. As a rock n’ roll documentary, or any kind of documentary for that matter, it simply doesn’t get any better than this. What an honor to have been involved. I am as proud of this as anything I have ever done.”

The rare cinéma vérité of When You’re Strange allows an intimate view into The Doors musical collaboration and their offstage lives – lives that reflected and defined the psychedelic times in the exciting but turbulent, changing but conflict-ridden America of the Viet Nam War era. The Doors were fiercely anti-establishment, anti-convention and pushed the proverbial envelope whenever possible – with their language, with their blatant sexuality, with their impulsive displays and, of course, with their music.

Jim Morrison’s haunting poetry and Ray Manzarek’s remarkable flights on the keyboard, backed by Densmore’s jazz beats and Krieiger’s intense guitar, created something that had never been heard before. The Doors achieved meteoric status as they soared to stardom but the excesses of their lead singer, Jim Morrison, resulted in an equally deep and abrupt crash. Dead at age 27, every question about the truths and myths of the times, about art and addiction, about authority and defiance – about alienation – were embodied in his persona.

“They say if you remember the 60s you weren’t there,” says producer Dick Wolf. “I can state definitively that one of the things I do remember is buying The Doors first album the day it came out and then listening to it about ten or twelve times in a row. Both sides. Every song. I’ve been a fan ever since. This movie is the story of the band but it is also an insight into a moment in time that will never be repeated. Jim Morrison was the best and worst of all of us who ever felt we could change the world if only people over thirty would listen.”

American Masters: When You’re Strange is directed and written by Tom DiCillo and produced by John Beug, Jeff Jampol, Peter Jankowski and Dick Wolf. Johnny Depp narrates. Susan Lacy is the series creator and executive producer of American Masters.

Barry Hannah: Southern Literary Force Dies At 67

March 4, 2010 – TERRY GROSS, host:

Barry Hannah

EnlargeAP

Barry Hannah directed the MFA program at the University of Mississippi, in Oxford.


March 4, 2010

Award-winning author Barry Hannah died of a heart attack in his home on March 1, leaving behind an impressive body of work that includes nine novels and four collections of short stories.

Hannah’s favorite setting was the American South. Born in Mississippi, the author imbued his novels with a fresh, Southern flare. His talent was compared with such giants of Southern literature as William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor.

Hannah broke onto the literary scene in 1972 with his debut novel, Geronimo Rex, a coming of age story that won the William Faulkner prize and was nominated for the National Book Award. He followed that with the short story collection Airships, another award-winning literary work which explored the Vietnam and Civil Wars and the modern South. His final work, a collection of stories called Sick Soldiers at Your Door, is set to be published later this year.

Hannah’s style was described as intensely personal, frenetic and comedic. In remembrance, we listen back on an interview with the novelist and short story writer who Truman Capote once called “the maddest writer in the U.S.A.”

This interview was originally broadcast on July 31, 2001.

 

The novelist and short story writer Barry Hannah died of a heart attack Monday. He was 67. We’re going to listen back to excerpt of the interview I recorded with him.

Larry McMurtry called Hannah the best fiction writer to appear in the South since Flannery O’Conner. William Styron described Hannah as an original, one of the most consistently exciting writers of the post-Faulkner generation.

 

 

Hannah wrote about the American South. He grew up in Mississippi and taught for many years at the University Mississippi. He won the William Faulkner prize and was a National Book Award finalist.

When I spoke with him in July 2001, his book “Yonder Stands Your Orphan” had just been published. The title borrowed a line from the Dylan song, “It’s All Over Now Baby Blue.” There are orphans and guns in the novel and plenty of evil as a killer changes the lives of everyone around him. Hannah wrote the book while getting chemotherapy treatments for lymphoma.

 

Bhannah

 

Here’s Hannah introducing a short reading from the book.

Mr. BARRY HANNAH (Author): This is Man Mortimer, who is the evil that lurks in this book and he likes to cut people. He comes from Missouri, and this little piece about him.

At this juncture he had no plans to hurt people around the lake. He did not like bodies of water much, had never seen the ocean. He was indifferent to trees. Soil was hateful to him, as was the odor of fish. But like many another man, forty-five years in age, he wanted his youth back.

He wanted to have pals, sports, high school girls. This need had rushed on him lately. He lived in three houses, but he had no home. He did not like the hearth, smells from the kitchen, an old friend for a wife, small talk. It all seemed a vicious closet to him. He moved, he took, he was admired. But he had developed a taste for young and younger flesh. This was thrilling and meant high money. Men and women in this nation were changing, and he intended to charge them for it.

Religion had neither formed nor harmed him. Neither had his parents in southern Missouri. But he despised the weakness of the church, and of his parents, whom he had gulled. He was a pretty boy born of hawk-nosed people. It was a curse to have these looks and no talent. Long and lank. Hooded eyes, sensual lips that sang no tune. Still, he quit the football team because of what it did to his hair, claiming a back ailment that had exempted him from manual labor since age 14. There are thousands of men of this condition, most of them sorry and shiftless, defeated at the start. Many are compulsive and snarling fools, emeritus at 20.

GROSS: Is this character of Man Mortimer based on anyone?

Mr. HANNAH: No he’s not. He’s a compound and I’ve gotten just by looking around and believing that I perceived evil in front of me. So it is imaginative but a collected history of my impressions, I believe.

GROSS: You describe him as a quiet man, a gambler, a liaison for stolen cars and a runner of whores, including three Vicksburg housewives. Describe his kind of crime.

Mr. HANNAH: His kind of crime is the kind of crime that begins out of laziness and being admired by women. He finds he can make a living at it, and he continues since he ran away from home in high school. He’s not been particularly violent but he has induced violence and suicides in others. He is a thief. He has a stolen car ring, especially expensive SUV’s. He’s a man who doesnt like to work and he doesnt like much of what’s offered by nature. So I’ve seen him as an alien without real pals and only a commercial connection to women.

He wants to join in society now but he only knows how to hurt, and that’s the basis of the book – evil when it reaches out to you and when it befriends you. And in Mortimer’s case, he likes to use a knife. He’s dangerous and he has made quite a deal of money off the casino life around Vicksburg.

GROSS: Has evil like Man Mortimer’s kind of evil ever come into your life?

Mr. HANNAH: I’ve been around it. Usually evil is something you can’t face. It simply has to wear out. Sometimes you work for evil unwittingly. And I can’t think of a particular person right now, but I think I’ve felt the closeness of evil in casinos and it brings out the old Baptist in me. I find the wretched excess and the sort of zombified folks that attend and participate in casinos pathetic and also dangerous in many cases.

GROSS: Now what about violence? There’s some violence in this book. Has violence come into your life? Have you witnessed it? Have you ever had a violent streak yourself?

Mr. HANNAH: I liked to throw knives back in my drinking days. But no, I’ve never been personally violent. I can’t be an honest man though, and tell you -but that I am occupied by violence. It seems to be out of my nightmares. And my wife wishes I wouldnt write about violence, but as soon as the pen starts going I become interested in it all over again and as if it’s almost dictated to me. I’ve been writing for 35 years and it’s attended a good deal of my work. At this point, I dont think I can do anything but confess that I am a student – and of violence, because of what it does – because of how it quickens the character of those around it.

GROSS: Youve also collected guns, right?

Mr. HANNAH: I’ve collected guns. Yes.

GROSS: And have you used them? What kind of things do you use them for?

Mr. HANNAH: I have not used a gun in 10 years.

GROSS: Mm-hmm.

Mr. HANNAH: If I used them right now I’d shoot beer cans at the city dump. It’s a 22 rifle. Now, I dont have any real personal urge to shoot anymore. It just past, and I’ve never shot at a human being, never threatened a human being, if that’s covering the subject.

GROSS: So what did you use the guns for?

Mr. HANNAH: You know, this is a difficult thing to explain to others about how a gun is a piece of art. Guns are history. I like to look at the mechanism. I like to feel the heft. And they are a kind of history. So that’s about all I can say. I dont collect guns anymore but I’m not sorry for the ones I have. They just feel like a decent hunk of the past hanging on the wall.

GROSS: Describe where you grew up.

Mr. HANNAH: I grew up in Clinton, Mississippi, which is right outside the state capital in Jackson. But it was a distinct village; about 2,000 people with a little college – a little Baptist college. So that we had professors and for neighbors. And the culture of the Baptist church, the high school band, and the football team. That was it. That was civilization as I knew it. Also there was no crime. We disappeared sometimes in the summer at eight o’clock in the morning, didnt come back until seven at night. There was no fear because we -the whole village took care of us.

GROSS: Did you go to the Baptist church?

Mr. HANNAH: Oh yes, I did. Yeah.

GROSS: What was the oratory like in the church and do you think that that influenced your sense of storytelling or the way you write?

Mr. HANNAH: The preachers did not, but the Bible itself has. I just, the rhythms of the Old and New Testament, the King James version, are just as solidly set in a person of my era who went to church as a moral foundation. I make sentences, I’m sure, from Biblical rhythms. I’ve been called post-Modernist but I doubt it. I think I just write in more fragmented ways and narration. But the base of my sentences, although they are sometimes Baroque, is I think from the Scriptures as far as I can feel it myself.

We read a lot of the Bible. We knew Scriptures by heart, especially Psalms and a great bit of the Book of John, the Sermon on the Mount, and – from Matthew and certain things like that were memorized. And I had them memorized until I was 15-16 years old.

GROSS: Can you think of a line or a passage from the Bible that has the kind of rhythms that youre speaking of, and how they influenced you?

Mr. HANNAH: Yeah, it’s something like the 23 Psalm. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow and so on. But this had just a such wonderful basic human poetry in it. And I never was sophisticated enough to consider the Bible as literature until I was – I never even heard the term the Bible as literature until I was way into graduate school. So I – in fact, I’d stopped going to church. But the church is – the Scriptures are very much with me and more and more now I’m reading Mark and John in the Bible. Not all the time but I just love the clarity and the mystery at the same time.

GROSS: Well, I want to thank you so much for talking with us.

Mr. HANNAH: You bet.

GROSS: Barry Hannah recorded in July 2001. He died Monday of a heart attack at the age of 67. His work is the focus of this year’s Annual Oxford Conference of the Book, which began today. The conference is dedicated to him.

The George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band has already toured successfully in Russia in 1996. The sensitive Russian audience and the Band hit it off and left both parties wanting another visit of the Band to Russia. Russia always had an active Jazz scene which became even more active after the fall of communism. Since then many festivals were founded. The tour starts in Germany, travels to Russia and finally ends in Amsterdam.

エルヴィス・プレスリーの声が懐かしい。それは血の通った人間の声だ。
“Occupation G.I.Blues”一撃の歌詞がエルヴィスの声とひとつになった時、”ロックンローラー”エルヴィスの輝きが勲章以上に光ってみえる。

銃と向かいあい、弾丸に追われている瞬間に、別の場所ではテレビを見て笑っている。友の死に絶唱している瞬間に、別の場所では絶叫している人への恋文を綴っている。
残酷だけど人は他の場所で起こっていることを意識せずに暮らしている。

災害援助ですら悲劇はつきまとうのに、戦争ともなれば果てしない悪夢が続くのだろう。
戦場にいる兵士を思うと、戦争反対ということさえ残酷な仕打ちのように思えて、もう何もいう気さえしない。
狂気の権力者たちの気紛れが腹立たしい。
身体に爆弾を巻き付けた市民を称えるばかりか、それを行えというおぞましい狂気と指示、一体何のため?

1.2.3.4,1.2.3.4・・・。
爆弾を捨て、銃を捨て、故郷に、家に向かって、歩んでくれ、

ああ、あれが自分の鏡と思うとゾッとするが、ゾッとする必要があるようだ。

命の大切さを訴える感動作とPRする後に、むごい暴力映画を面白いと賞賛する。
ニュースキャスターがまじめくさった顔でチクリチクリと言った後に、風俗・低俗大行進の多重人格、マスコミもなにもかも自身の分裂症状に気がつかない。
それこそ人の鏡なのかも。

いやなことは戦争があってもなくても毎日起こる。
それは「人間」が交わって暮らしているから。悲しいけれどそれが事実である。
いくら戦争をくり返しても戦争がなくならないのは、人間に否定する気持ちがあるから。
否定、対立はどこにでも転がっている。雪だるまとなった不機嫌は増殖するしかなく、自分の目の前はもちろん、いつもハートの常備薬である限り世の中に転がり続ける。

だからと言って、洞穴、井戸の中、ツボの中、落ち込んでいるわけにもいかない。
一旦気持ちをリセットして、アップ&ゴー、進まないと自分の生を生きることはできない。
不機嫌爆弾を持っていないか、否定銃を持っていないか再点検、
ただただ無心で生きなよと天の声がする。

プチ~ン。シ~ン。

日常のスイッチをオフにした時に、エルヴィスの声がオンになる。オフにした頭とココロに、いま聴こえてくる1.2.3.4,1.2.3.4・・・。

でも泥と油で濁ったテキサスの
汚い小川がいいんだよ

*まいっちまうぜ、1、2、3、4
仕事は”G.I.ブルース”
G.I.カットのてっぺんからG.I.シューズの踵まで
早いところ、生まれ故郷のアメリ力に帰れなきゃ
頭のヒューズが飛んでじゃうぜ

ドイツ風シチューと
黒パンが俺たちの食事
ドイツ風シチューと
黒パンが俺たちの食事
来月の給料が飛んでもいいぜ
テキサス・ステーキが食べれるなら

ヒーローに憧れるのに
来る日も来る日も行進ばかり
ヒーローに憧れるのに
来る日も来る日も行進ばかり
橋から落ちたくらいでは
勲章なんかもらえやしない

*まいっちまうぜ、1、2、3、4
仕事は”G.I.ブルース”
うんざりさ
G.I.カットのてっぺんからG.I.シューズの踵まで
早いところ、生まれ故郷のアメリ力に帰れなきゃ
頭のヒューズが飛んでじゃうぜ

花よりきれいなドイツの娘たち
なのに近づくこともできゃしない
花よりきれいなドイツの娘たち
なのに近づくこともできゃしない
だってみんなの胸には
「私の芝生に立入禁止」のサイン

*まいっちまうぜ、1、2、3、4
仕事は”G.I.ブルース”、
G.I.カットのてっぺんからG.I.シューズの踵まで
早いところ、生まれ故郷のアメリ力に帰れなきゃ
頭のヒューズが飛んでじゃうぜ

映画『G.I.ブルース』の同名主題歌<G.I.ブルース>は、タイトルとは裏腹に、軽快なマーチ風のロックナンバー。ブルースの所以は、ブルーな兵隊さんの心情を歌ったものだから。

エルヴィス・プレスリーはアメリカ国民の法律によって、実際に1958年に1958年3月24日、陸軍に入隊、テキサスの基地で6ヶ月の訓練を受けた後、ドイツに駐屯、

月給78ドルで2年間の兵役を持ち前のあたたかく豊かなサービス精神で勤めた。
普通を望み特別な待遇を嫌い、一国民、若者として一兵卒として過ごし軍曹に昇進。
1960年3月5日に除隊している。

 

除隊後初の映画『G.I.ブルース』はその等身大の姿を全世界に見せようと、実際にエルヴィスが駐屯していたフランクフルトを舞台に、製作され1960年11月23日に公開された。

そのコンセプトはファンのみならず多くの人の気持ちとマッチ、アメリカ人の誇り、安心、共有のアンケート結果であるかのように記録破りの大ヒットとなっている。

アメリカ人はきっと虹を見たようにうれしかったのだ。

オリジナル・サウンドトラック・アルバムは映画公開に先行して10月にリリース、10週連続アルバムチャート・トップの大ヒットとなっている。

チャートイン期間は2年を超える111週で、ギネス大量ホルダーのエルヴィスでも最長のアルバムとなった。

 

無気味・・・僕は幼い頃、エルヴィスの存在と声(ハートブレイク・ホテル)を何かで見たこと、聴いたことはあったが、その印象は無気味、恐い、ふしだらの印象でしかなかったのだ。

その無気味さは子供には近付いてはいけない雰囲気があって、”成人オンリー”しかも”特殊な人オンリー”の覗いてはいけないモノと決めていた。ところが偶然立続けに見た『ガール!ガール!ガール』『恋のKOパンチ』でのエルヴィスは悪魔でもなく、健康な「普通のお兄さん」だった。

なんとなく知っていた恐い印象とのギャップが急速に接近させたのかも知れない。
いま思うとそれはエルヴィスと能動的に関わることは大人への関門として偶然の必然だったようである。

映画『G.I.ブルース』には入隊前に製作された4作品の無気味なエルヴィスとは全く違うエルヴィス・プレスリーがすでに登場している。演技と歌とも新境地の数々、連発に彩られている。入隊前のファンが、この映画で新しいエルヴィスを見た瞬間というのは、自分の恐怖感からしても、衝撃だったと推測する。

映画の展開は歴史に名高いM-G-Mミュージカルでのジーン・ケリー、フランク・シナトラらの作品のようだし、エルヴィスの笑顔が爽やかなキャラクターも、その線でこちらもスマイル。スマイル。で楽しめるが、ここではしっかりと「エルビス映画」というジャンルへ踏み込んでいる。

ハル・ウォリスのプロデュース、ノーマン・タグロウ監督のアカデミー賞コンビが初めてエルヴィスと組んだ作品ということもあって定石ながらも全編にもっとも映画らしい雰囲気が漂い好感の持てる力強い作品に仕上がっている。

映画の1/3が過ぎた頃に登場するエルヴィスの相手役のジュリエット・プラウズが、アメリカの友人とそっくりなのが個人的には一番楽しめる理由。
そんなことを抜きにしてもエルヴィスの楽曲も、映画の展開もすこぶる快調で、いつ見ても楽しめる。
ジュリエット・プラウズを前にして歌う<いかす買い物>も軽妙ななかにロックンローラー、エルヴィスの本領発揮、ウォーツ、ウォーツ、いよいよ、いよいよという感じで映画の作り方としてもおいしい。

伝説的アニメ『宇宙戦艦ヤマト』のテーマ曲でも知られる佐々木功氏のカヴァーもあって、日本では馴染みの深いタイトル曲<G.I.ブルース>だが、意外にもアメリカではシングル・リリースされていない。
アルバムからは<さらばふるさと>がイギリスでシングルカットされた。
ヨーロッパではドイツ語バージョンがリリースされた。
アメリカでは<さらばふるさと>も1964年クリスマス・シーズンに<ブルー・クリスマス>のB面としてやっとリリースされた。
つまり本国ではアルバム1本勝負だったわけだが、納得できる充実したアルバムになっている。
ジャケットも内容も時の流行りを超える力が最初からあって素敵だ。

<G.I.ブルース>のシド・テッパー、ロイ・C・べネットの作者コンビによる。
ここではタイトルはいかさないけれど、曲はいかす<いかす買い物>を提供しつつも、『ブルー・ハワイ』では大量ファン獲得の<ハワイアン・サンセット><愛の島>などなど。
『ガール!ガール!ガール!』では<壁の耳には聞こえない><似合いのカップル>などなど。なんとそれぞれ。それぞれ。に5曲も提供している。

<G.I.ブルース>は劇中、懐かしや、お帰りキング!稀代のロケン屋仲間、スコテイ・ムーア、D.J.フォンタナのバンドとともにお披露目される。
歌詞はホームシック、シクシクにかかった兵隊さんの心情、サウンドはゲンキが出るマーチ風ロックナンバー。
嘆きが仕事の”G.I稼業”といった内容だが、きちんと兵役をつとめ、軍曹に昇進したエルウ゛ィス・プレスリーゆえに歌になり、絵になっている。

裂け目を疾走するエルヴィスの真骨頂、絶妙のバランスが声のバランスで2乗4乗されてエルヴィスらしい。
クロージングのシャウトになんともいえない哀愁の一撃が爆発。泣け泣け、
こんな泣き節ならミルクカウだってモーたまらんと、早く帰っておいでと、ステーキに身を捧げる。
オジジ、オババが幸福な国は素晴らしいが、若者も幸福な国はもっと素晴らしい。
「エルヴィスを大統領に!」と言った人たちが一番健常人だったのかもしれないと思うこの頃。1.2.3.4,1.2.3.4・・・。が胸を叩く。

エルヴィスの背中にかくれんぼ。
もういいかい?まあだだよ。もういいかい?・・・・。

エルヴィスの声が消えて、意向を尋ねるわけでもなく、新しい瞬間が出迎える。
楽しい時か、残酷な時か、分からないけれど、スイッチをオンにする。
新しいココロで始めることができる。

G.I.ブルース、ラジカセ抱えて、「FUCK YOU!」逃げ出してしまえばいいのに。すべての兵士よ。逃げ出しなよ。とつぶやきながらも、逃げられない世界に向かう。

エルヴィスが背中を押し続ける。1.2.3.4,1.2.3.4・・・。

They give us a room
With a view of the beautiful Rhine
They give us a room
With a view of the beautiful Rhine
A gimme a muddy ole creek
In Texas any ole time

* l’ve got these hup two three four
Occupation G.I.Blues
From my G.I.hair
To the heels of my G.I.shoes
And if I don’t go Stateside soon
l’m gonna blow my fuse

We get hasenpfeffer
And black pumpernickel for chow
We get hasenpfeffer
And black pumpernickel for chow
l’d blow my next month’s pay
For a slice of Texas cow

We’d like to be heroes
But all that we do here is march
We’d like to be heroes
But all that we do here is march
And they don’t give the Purple Heart
For a fallen arch

* Repeat

The frauleins are pretty as flowers
But we can’t make a pass
The frauleins are pretty as flowers
But we can’t make a pass
Cause they’re all wearin’ signs sayin’
“Keep it to your own grass”

* Repeat

(Occupatlon G.I.Blues)
Occupation G.I.Blues
(Occupation G.I.Blues)
