This is how you smash open a new decade; a 50 track album absolutely drenched in stinkage. Now a tradition for DJ Hybrid's label, this anthem collection is one of the biggest to date with names and vibes across the spectrum.
Every single track slaps the dance from the stripped back drumfunk and demented mentasms of Substrate's "Throwback" to the mystic sitar twangs and heavy bass bangs of Euphonique's "Moksha" via ruded up Dread bass badness of the bossman's own "Lost In The Jungle". And that's not even the tippiest tip of this anthemic jungle iceberg.

Classy stuff all round, and a great VFM package - here's to five more years! Second time around for South Sudanese musician and political activist Emmanual Jal's "Kuar" single, which first landed on Innervisions a decade ago. That time, there was a lot of heat around Henrik Schwarz's headline-grabbing remix, which re-imagined Jal's traditional Sudanese track as a tech-tinged chunk of Afro-house brilliance rich in bold bass, trippy electronics, layered percussion and rave-ready Winter Asylum Harvest - Various - Endless Grindstone: The Compilation night riffs.
This revision strips out Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts of Jal's vocal, instead offering a pumped up, riff-heavy variation on Schwarz's original remix. Showcasing a wide range of sounds has always been very important to Dirtybird head honcho Claude Vonstroke.

The Hair team soon became embroiled in a lawsuit with the organizers of the Tony Awards. After assuring producer Michael Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts that commencing previews by April 3,would assure eligibility for consideration for the Tonys, the New York Theatre League ruled Hair ineligible, moving the cutoff date to March The producers brought suit  but were unable to force the League to reconsider.
The West Coast version played at the Aquarius Theater in Los Angeles beginning about six months Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts the Broadway opening and running for an unprecedented two years. There Heaven Knows - Francesca Beghè* - Francesca Beghè soon nine simultaneous productions in U.
A notable addition to the team in Los Angeles was Tom Smotherswho served as co-producer. It was rare for so many productions to run simultaneously during an initial Broadway run. Producer Michael Butler, who had declared that Hair is "the strongest anti-war statement ever written", said the reason that he opened Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts many productions was to influence public opinion against the Vietnam War and end it as soon as possible.
Hair opened Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts the Shaftesbury Theatre in London on September 27,led by the same creative team as the Broadway production.
The opening night was delayed until the abolition of theatre censorship in England under the Theatres Act so that the show could include nudity and profanity. The job of leading the foreign language productions of Hair was given to Bertrand CastelliButler's partner and executive producer of the Broadway show. Butler described him as a "crazy showman Each script contained local references, such as street names and the names or depictions of local politicians and celebrities.
Castelli produced companies in Dyonisian - Rot In Hell - Hallways Of The Always, Germany, Mexico and other countries, sometimes also directing the productions.
A successful Parisian production of Hair opened on June 1, Miller and directed by Jim Sharmanwho also designed the production. Redd was one Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts six African-Americans brought to Australia to provide a racially integrated tribe. The production transferred to Melbourne in and then had a national tour. It marked the stage debut of Boston -born Australian vocalist Marcia Hines. Another notable production was in Belgradein the former Yugoslaviain It was the first Hair to be produced in a communist country.
ByHair was a huge financial success, and nineteen productions had been staged outside of North America. Hair explores many of the themes of the hippie movement of the s. Theatre writer Scott Miller described these as follows:.
Contrary to popular opinion, the hippies had great respect for America and believed that they were the true patriots, the only ones who genuinely wanted to save our country and make it the best it could be once again. It symbolized equality between men and women. Drab work clothes jeans, work shirts, pea coats were a rejection of materialism. Clothing from other cultures, particularly the Third World and native Americans, represented their awareness of the global community and their rejection of U.
Simple cotton dresses and other natural fabrics were a rejection of synthetics, a return to natural things and simpler Let The Wind Blow - The Beach Boys - The Capitol Years. Some hippies wore old World War II or Civil War jackets as way of co-opting the symbols of war into their newfound philosophy of nonviolence.
Extending the precedents set by Show Boat and Porgy and BessHair opened the Broadway musical to racial integration; fully one-third of the cast was African American. Several songs and scenes from the show address racial issues. One of the tribe's protest chants is "What do we think is really great? To bomb, lynch and segregate! Supreme Court had struck down laws against the practice in Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts Copulate in a king-sized bed.
The Lincoln character then recites a modernized version of the Gettysburg Addresswhile a white female tribe member polishes Lincoln's shoes with her blond hair. The many references to Native Americans throughout the script are part of the anti-consumerismnaturalism focus of the hippie movement and of Hair. The characters in the show are referred to as the "tribe", borrowing the term for Native American communities.
All the sense of family, of belonging, of responsibility and loyalty inherent in the word 'tribe' has to be felt by the cast. The brief nude scene at the end of Act I was a subject of controversy and notoriety. The naked body was beautiful, something to be celebrated and appreciated, not scorned and hidden. They saw their bodies and their sexuality as gifts, not as 'dirty' things. Hair glorifies sexual freedom in a variety of ways. Various illegal drugs are taken by the Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts during the course of the show, most notably a hallucinogen during the trip sequence.
Similarly, in the song "Donna", Berger sings that "I'm evolving through the drugs that you put down. For example, Jeanie, after revealing that she is pregnant by a " speed freak", says that " methedrine is a bad scene". The theme of opposition to the war that pervades the show is unified by the plot thread that progresses through the book — Claude's moral Župsko Kolo - Various - Pesme I Igre Naroda Jugoslavije (Narodne Pesme I Igre Iz Srbije, Bosne, Kosm over whether to burn his draft card.
The lyrics to " Three-Five-Zero-Zero ", which is sung during that sequence, evoke the horrors of war "ripped open by metal explosion". In the poem, General Maxwell Taylor proudly reports to the press the number of enemy soldiers killed in one month, repeating it digit by digit, for effect: "Three-Five-Zero-Zero.
Hair also aims its satire Candela (Nico Purman Remix) - Ahmet Sisman / Pherox - Candela / Atletico Remixes the pollution caused by our civilization. Hello carbon monoxide. The air Religion, particularly Catholicism, appears both overtly and symbolically throughout the piece, and it is often made the brunt of a joke.
In Act II, when Berger gives imaginary pills to various famous figures, he offers "a pill for the Pope ". I shall vanish and be forgotten," then gives benediction to the tribe and the audience. There are textual allusions to Claude being on a cross, and, in the end, he is chosen to give his life for the others. Harmony and understanding Sympathy and trust abounding. No more falsehoods or derisions Golden living dreams of visions Mystic crystal revelation And the Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts true liberation.
Songs like "Good Morning, Starshine" and "Aquarius" reflect the s cultural interest in astrological and cosmic concepts. The position of the 'history makers' PlutoUranusJupiter in the 10th house made the show unique, powerful and a money-maker.
And the fact that Neptune was on the ascendancy foretold that Hair would develop a reputation involving sex. In Mexico, where Crummere did not pick the opening date, the show was closed down by the government after one night.
Hair makes many references to Shakespeare 's plays, especially Romeo and Juliet and Hamletand, at times, takes lyrical material directly from Shakespeare. Symbolically, the running plot of Claude's indecision, especially his resistance to burning his draft card, which ultimately causes his demise, has been seen as a parallel to Hamlet : "the melancholy hippie".
According to Public Theater Artistic Director Oskar Eustis"Both [ Resurrection (Remixed By DJ Mofo) - [F.E.V.E.R.] - Resurrection and Hamlet ] center on idealistic brilliant men as they struggle to find their place in a world marred by war, violence, and venal politics. They see both the luminous possibilities and the harshest realities of being human.
In the end, unable to effectively combat the evil around them, they tragically succumb. In his introduction to the published script of Viet RockRichard Schechner says, "performance, action, and event are the key terms of our theatre — and these terms are not literary. The playwright's job was not just to put words on a page, but to create a theatrical experience based on a central idea.
Megan Terry's Viet Rock was created using this improvisational process. In her stage directions for a Senate hearing scene in Viet RockTerry wrote, "The actors should take turns being senators and witnesses; the transformations should be abrupt and Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts. When the actor is finished with one character he becomes another, or just an actor. Hair was designed in much the same way.
Tom O'Horgan, the show's Broadway director, was intimately involved in the experimental theatre movement. Both Hair and Viet Rock include rock music, borrowed heavily from mass media, and frequently break down the invisible " fourth wall " to interact with the audience.
For example, in the opening number, the tribe mingles with audience members, and at the end of the show, the audience is invited I Wont Mention It Again - Various - Grandes Exitos De Country stage.
In the original Broadway production, the stage was completely open, with no curtain and the fly area and grid exposed to the audience. The proscenium arch was outlined with climb-ready scaffolding.
Wagner's spare set was painted in shades of grey with street graffiti stenciled on the stage. The stage was raked, and a tower of abstract scaffolding upstage at the rear merged a Native American totem pole and a modern sculpture of a crucifix -shaped tree.
This scaffolding was decorated with found objects that the cast had gathered from the streets of New York. Some of these included mixed parts of military uniforms, bell bottom jeans with Ukrainian embroidery, tie dyed T-shirts and a red white and blue fringed coat.
At the musical cue, "they [stood] naked and motionless, their bodies bathed in Fisher's light projection of floral patterns. They chant[ed] of 'beads, flowers, freedom, and happiness. Groucho Marx quipped, "I was gonna go see it, and then I called up the theater. I told them I'd call back, went into my Dans Un Vieux Rocknroll - William Sheller - Chemin De Traverse, took off all my clothes, Primordia End Song - Kim Boekbinder - Rogue Star (File) looked at myself in the full-length mirror.
Then I called the theater and said, 'Forget it. The nudity was optional for the performers. The French cast was "the nudest" of the foreign groups, while the London cast "found nudity the hardest to achieve". So I did it.
We put so much value on clothing. It's like so much else people get uptight about. We stood naked to comment on the fact that society makes more of nudity than killing. Not only the soul but the whole body was being exposed. It was very apt, very honest and almost necessary. Much deeper though. Hair is very African — a lot of [the] rhythms, not the tunes so much. MacDermot has claimed that the songs "can't all be the same. You've got to get different styles.
I like to think they're all a little different. This explosion of revolutionary proclamations, profanity and hard rock shook the musical theatre to its roots. Most people in the theatre business Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts unwilling to look on Hair as anything more than a noisy accident. Tony voters tried to ignore Hair's importance, shutting it out from any honors. However, some now insisted it was time for a change. New York Times critic Clive Barnes gushed that Hair was "the first Broadway musical in some time to have the authentic voice of today rather than the day before yesterday.
The music did not resonate with everyone. Leonard Bernstein remarked "the songs are just laundry lists"  and walked out of the production.
The score had many more Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts than were typical of Broadway shows of the day.
The show was under almost perpetual re-write. The Shakespearean speech " What a piece of work is a man " was originally spoken by Claude and musicalized by MacDermot for Broadway, and "Hashish" was formed from an early speech of Berger's. The first recording of Hair was made in featuring the off-Broadway cast.
It stayed at No. Its exotic orange-and-green cover art imprinted itself instantly and indelibly on the psyche. Some of the songs were cut between the Public and Broadway, some had been left off the original cast album due to space, and a few were never performed onstage. The score of Hair saw chart successes, as well.
The Cowsills ' recording of the title song "Hair" climbed to No. Reception to Hair upon its Broadway premiere was, with exceptions, overwhelmingly positive. I think it is simply that it is so likable. So new, so fresh, and so unassuming, even in its pretensions. O'Connor of Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts Wall Street Journal said Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts show was "exuberantly defiant and the production explodes into every nook and cranny of the Biltmore Theater".
Television Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts were even more enthusiastic. Allan Jeffreys of ABC said the actors were "the most talented hippies you'll ever see A reviewer from Varietyon the other hand, called the show "loony" and "without a story, form, music, dancing, beauty or artistry. It's impossible to tell whether [the cast has] talent. Maybe talent is irrelevant in this new kind of Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts business. Reviews were mixed when Hair opened in London.
Irving Wardle in The Times wrote, "Its honesty and passion give it the quality of a true theatrical celebration — the joyous sound of a group of people telling the world exactly what they feel. Young agreed that Hair was "not only a wildly enjoyable evening, but a thoroughly moral one.
Acknowledging the show's critics, Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts Miller wrote in that "some people can't see past the appearance of chaos and randomness to the brilliant construction and sophisticated imagery underneath. The show rejected every convention of Broadway, of traditional theatre in general, and of the American musical in specific. And it was brilliant. I let it fly in the breeze and get caught in the trees, Give a home to the fleas in my hair.
A home for fleas, a hive for Oh Lord Let It Be - The Fleetwoods - Mr.
Blue A nest for birds, there ain't no words For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder of my Hair. Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, my hair. Oh say, can you see my eyes? If you can Then my hair's too short. They'll be ga ga at the Go Go when they see me in my toga, My toga made of blond, brilliantined, biblical hair.
My hair like Jesus wore it, Hallelujah, I Given Chance - Folding Money Talks - The Root Of All Evil it. Hair challenged many of the norms held by Western society in The name itself, inspired by the name of a Jim Dine painting depicting a comb and a few strands of hair,   was a reaction to the restrictions of civilization and consumerism and a preference for naturalism.
The longer the hair got, the more expansive the mind was. Long hair was shocking, and it was a revolutionary act to grow long hair. It was kind of a flag, really. The musical caused controversy when it was first staged. The Act I finale was the first time a Broadway show had seen totally naked actors and actresses,  and the show was charged with the desecration of the American flag and the use of obscene language.
Two cases eventually reached the U. Supreme Court. The touring company of Hair met with resistance throughout the United States. In South BendIndiana, the Morris Civic Auditorium refused booking,  and in Evansville, Indianathe production was picketed by several church groups. Supreme Court to be an unlawful prior restraint. The legal challenges against the Boston production were appealed to the U.
The Chief of the Licensing Bureau Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts exception to the portrayal of the American flag in the piece,  saying, "anyone who desecrates the flag should be whipped on Boston Common. The Hair legal team obtained an injunction against criminal prosecution from the Superior Court, Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts and the D.
At the request of both parties, several of the justices viewed the production and handed down a ruling that "each member of the cast [must] be clothed to a reasonable extent. After the Federal appellate bench reversed the Massachusetts court's ruling, the D. In a 4—4 decision, the Court upheld the lower court's decision, allowing Andante - Felix Mendelssohn* / Joachim Raff* - Octets to re-open on May Local reactions to the controversial material varied greatly.
San Francisco's large hippie population considered the show an extension of the street activities there, often blurring the barrier between art and life by meditating with the cast and frequently finding themselves onstage during the show. In St. PaulMinnesota, a protesting clergyman released 18 white mice into the lobby hoping to frighten the audience. Jim Lovell and Jack Swigertafter dubbing Apollo 13 's lunar module "Aquarius" after the song, walked out of the production at the Biltmore in protest of perceived anti-Americanism and disrespect of the flag.
After the performance, the theater, located across the street from a popular local bordello, was padlocked by the government, which said the production was "detrimental to the morals of youth. Hair effectively marked the end of stage censorship in the United Kingdom. The Parisian production encountered little controversy, and the cast disrobed for the nude scene "almost religiously" according to Castelli, nudity being common on stage in Paris.
It was produced by Butler, directed by O'Horgan and performed in the Biltmore Theater, where the original Broadway production had played. The character of Claude is rewritten as an innocent draftee from Oklahomanewly arrived in New York to join the military, and Sheila is a high-society debutante who catches his eye.
In perhaps the greatest diversion from the stage version, a mistake leads Berger to go to Vietnam in Claude's place, where he is killed. Rado and Ragni were unhappy with the film, feeling that Forman portrayed the hippies as "oddballs" and "some sort Cosmic Assassins - Various - Break - Club Cuts aberration" without any connection to the peace movement, failing to capture the essence of the original stage production.
However, the film received generally favorable reviews. Weller's inventions make this Hair seem much funnier than I remember the show's having been. They also provide time and space for the development of characters who, on the stage, had to express themselves almost entirely in song. Ruth Westheimer.
