For those collector types out there, I found something interesting recently. Many Beck fans know that Beck’s mother Bibbe was in the band Black Fag (note: not Black Flag) with Vaginal Davis. What I did not know until now is that, according to the discography on Vaginal’s website, Beck actually produced two records for Black Fag. The first, a 7″ EP entitled Parerga y Paralipomena, was released in 1992 and the second, a 12″ LP called 11 Harrow House was released in 1995. I would love to hear these, but unfortunately, they are both “rare and out of print”. If anybody knows where I can get copies of either the records themselves, or even just the music from them, please post here or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Maybe we’ll send you something special in return…
Actually, if you’ll permit some train-of-thought-ramblings, I’ve been meaning to run a contest on here for awhile. Perhaps this will be my first attempt at a whiskeyclone.net contest. A prize will go to the first person that tracks down these items. I don’t know what the prize will be yet, but it’ll be something. This contest is open-ended and will end when I say so. Go forth! Find the music!
(BTW, there are some other cool producers listed on that page: Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth and
Bong Load Poop Alley man Tom Grimley also both produced Black Fag releases. Neat.)
