Kim Fowley - Bubble Gum

I snuck off to Raleigh today in the Rain to hit Pet Smart and then hit Schoolkids Records. Met a cool record store clerk, listened to Donnie and Joe Emerson Lp on Light in the Attic [a must future buy!]and bought some fantastic 45's that will make their appearance on this blog at some point [including at least 1 more Fowley related 45- the dude was everywhere!].
My last 45 in the week long tribute to Kim Fowley is the other side from last Saturday's post. The first time I ever heard this song was actually the Sonic Youth version 20+ years ago when I did not have a clue who Kim Fowley was. I am wiser now. Rest in Peace Kim,

Kim Fowley - Lights

Kim put out this 45 on Loma around the time he produced the Belfast Gypsies 45 on Loma. I uploaded one side of it a few years ago and at some point I will upload the other side.

Kim Fowley - Strangers From The Sky

I like to listen to a show called Coast To Coast while I drive to work at 4:30am in the morning. They often have discussions on Aliens and such. I could imagine Kim being a guest describing his experience [if he had one] 'There is Life on Alpha Centaury, the North Periphery, eyes of the living stars have seen us". Tonight we are back to Kim the artist. I doubt Frank Sinatra approved of this one!

Elfstone - Louisiana Teardrops

Kim Fowley had a wide variety of musical tastes. The songs he mentioned as his favorites seemed to be from his youth, notably to me was Whispering Bells [fantastic song by the way that IS in poppacool's collection]. Tonight's offering is his role as producer. I know nothing of this band and if he had any other relation to them. The B side is also cool but will be posted at a later date.

Kim Fowley - I'm Bad

Somehow Kim Fowley ended up with a Capitol Records contract and put out a few LP's and a few singles. This was off his first Capitol LP from 1972
