The Return of Leenda Karina to RENDEZVOUS! (3/3)


We just couldn't get enough of Leenda Karina at our last RENDEZVOUS!, so on Wednesday, March 3rd, she'll be be back! Leenda's got the grooviest selections of international freakbeat, US garage, UK psych, and other audio delicacies - all packed into a cool little 45's record box. If you missed her on the 15th, now's your chance to catch her amazing DJ set(s)! As always, your resident agents will pollute your ears with their assorted array of Turkish & Persian protest pop, psychedelia, space-age cosmic weirdness, Euro soundtracks, and live re-edits. We will also be screening two 60’s b-movie legends: Soledad Miranda in "Vampyros Lesbos," & Jean Gabin in "Le Pacha."

10PM and no cover! 21+

From the archives..."The Voodou Ju Ju Drug" - Part 2 by R. Pultek



This week I present side 2 (or part 2) of "The Voodou Ju Ju Drug." It's basically the same track, but this one has some cool sitar, an African style vocal scat, and more screaming & moaning! I also found out from an undercover French source that "R. Pultek" is indeed Msr. Nilovic, and that this 45 is extremely rare and difficult to find. Dig it! (Download link in the comments)

Meet Leenda at the RENDEZVOUS! (Feb. 15)



Join us on Monday, February 15th as we welcome our very special guest DJ, Leenda Karina (Minijupe, Love Buzz, Love Maker, LA) to RENDEZVOUS! She will be bringing her record box of international freakbeat, US garage, UK psych, and other audio delicacies - all on vinyl of course. Inevitably, your hosts plan on hijacking the decks from time to time to interject their assorted array of Turkish & Persian protest pop, psychedelia, space-age cosmic weirdness, Euro soundtracks, and new re-edits specially crafted for your ears (& brain!) by yours truly. We will also be screening two 60’s b-movie classics: Jess Franco’s "Venus in Furs" & a 1967 made for French TV cult classic, “Anna.”

10PM and no cover! 21+

From the archives..."The Voodou Ju Ju Drug" - Part 1 by R. Pultek



This week's offering is a French, afro-styled freakbeat number with hard & heavy drumming and prerequisite screaming & moaning. The rumor out there is that the composer, R. Pultek, is actually a pseudonym for sound library maestro Janko Nilovic. Anybody out there know for sure? Apparently, there was a series of "Voodoo Ju Ju" 45's released and most of them are credited to Nilovic & Davy Jones (including one under the name K. PYTHACUNTHAPUSERECTUS - I'll post this one in the coming weeks). Click the play button and listen for yourself (or download it, if you're really nuts!). Next week it's side 2!
