drjaybabcock: 1969 interview
drjaybabcock: "...Once you get up to a certain level, I mean, I don't play my guitar like a guitar, I think of it like a tuba, you understand?
drjaybabcock: "It's not a guitar, it's a tuba...I usually think of myself as a renaissance chorus on the guitar... I mean, I know a lot of guitar players do that.
drjaybabcock: "You go like this on the fuz, daaaaaaa--and what happens is that you don't get just one note like a guitar, you may get eight notes, like daaahhhhhhheeeee...
drjaybabcock: "You start hearing some really strange things... We used to call it the Cloud, and like, on certain songs, we used to consciously enter the Cloud and you just hear all these funny things.
drjaybabcock: "They're not you, but you know they're being caused by the guitar, right?...and it's not just me, I mean, I've had people come up to me and say 'Man! Who was singing those choir parts? Who was playing trumpet?' There's no trumpet.
drjaybabcock: "The thing is, if you know how to operate an amplifier and make all these things happen...and like, we do, but I don't want to spend all my life doin' it. Like, there's no candy stores. I'd like to go for a soda."
drjaybabcock: THE CLOUD!
drjaybabcock: It's from a new book out
drjaybabcock: called "All Yesterdays' Parties: The Velvet Underground in Print, 1966-1971"
: that was an interview from a mag called Open City

The search for the meaning and origin of the ancient symbol of the three hares.
Writer and historian, James Crowden, follows three historical detectives from a church in Devon to a high mountain kingdom in the Himalayas searching for the meaning and origin of the ancient symbol of the three hares.
The search began with a carving in the roof of a medieval Devon church, but the hare-chasers trace its origins through medieval Europe; via an ancient casket said to have contained the bones of St Lazarus, a 13th century monastery bell, and a Chapter house roof where the hares are found rubbing shoulders with the pagan Green Man; all the way to the mountain Kingdom of Ladakh and 12th Century China.
So what does the symbol mean and how has it travelled such immense distances?
The answer connects the pagan goddess who gave her name to Easter to the Virgin Mary, the Buddha, and the great Mongol Empire.
You can see photos of the hares, find out about the Three Hares Project and contribute your own sightings at: The Three Hares Project
From BBC Radio 4
Listen again to the program in RealAudio.
An ancient symbol in the roof of a Dartmoor church turns out to link paganism, Islam, Christianity and Buddhism over almost 2000 years, in a fascinating historical detective story.
We have some remainders from a few tours featuring some amazing Savage Pencil art. See below for one shirt design and a few posters. If you are interested in any of these items please check out our friends at http://www.aurora-b.com/
Sir Richard Bishop
Tuesday, May 10th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show
When not working as a dealer in occult print ephemera, Sir Richard Bishop maintains a stately, world-traveling existence as 1/3 of the Sun City Girls. He also moonlights as a purveyor of solo improvisational guitar whose style can be said to be more informed by the spirit of the films of Peckinpah and Jodorowsky than any clinical axeman influence. In town for shows at Joe's Pub on May 3rd and Maxwells in Hoboken on the 4th, Bishop visits Brian in the WFMU studios for an afternoon of tying together the worlds of Morocco, the Middle East, and Morricone.
