Lee Rockey
Sonic Explorer BRASS RING C-40
Recorded , Edited, Mixed and Played  in Portland Oregon in the late 1970’s By Lee Rockey.  Final Editing for this Album  by Ju Suk Reet Meate at Smegma’s Studio  January 2013.

Lee Rockey gave up being the best jazz drummer in Portland sometime in the late 1960’s and started playing a modified flat bridge violin, cello, oscillators, and free drumming using a Teac 2340 4 channel tape deck, as soon as they were available, to layer tracks. Brass Ring is one of the very rare finished and named compositions that was originally as a cassette dub, which I managed to borrow and copy.

018
Lee Rockey
JAZZ DRUMMER 
EXTRAORDINAIRE C-60

Side one: Recorded at various NYC locations including Lee’s Apartment 1952-1955. Side two: Mostly Recorded at the Way Out Club Portland, Oregon, May 16 1961
Final EQing and Album Concept by Ju Suk Reet Meate in February 2013

One of the most unique and unsung Artists in Portland history, Lee Rockey was born in Vancouver Wa. 1926 and from 1942 until 1965 or so was the most modern and best “Jazz  Drummer” in the area. One of the” Vancouver Whiz Kids” he wore a Zoot Suit  with a Reet Pleat and still spoke “Jive” when I met him in 1976.  After playing all types of Gigs in Portland including sitting in for touring R&B acts such as The Treniers, he Moved to NYC  in 1952 ,and was hired by Neil Hefty (who had just revitalized Count Basie’s  Career  with his great arrangements and written his last big hit Little Darlin )  for his first big band. Later he was in the studio for Herbie Mann’s debut 10″ in 1955. Also on this album are Homemade Tapes with his friend, pianist and vocalist Ed Beach jamming and being silly in their apartment in NYC.

Moving back to Portland Lee was the go-to Drummer for the most ambitious Jazz Musicians including Jim Smith’s “The Way Out Band” 1961-63 featuring amazing arrangements by Bill and Ernie Hood and others. WARNING: This Album contains Serious High Class music originally intended for Adults of the Mid 20th Century.                        

019

SMEGMA MUTANT STOMPS !!!!

HEL-94111-smegma-mutant-stomps-cover-3k_original.jpghttp://helicopter.storenvy.com/products/10602495-smegma-mutant-stomps-lp

 

These American legends of outsider avant-garde need little introduction. Since becoming core members of the Los Angeles Free Music Society over four decades ago, they have retained their focus, determination and unmatched originality, influencing generations and never ceasing to advance further avenues of progress. Mutant Stomps is a result of Smegma’s living room recording sessions at their pink house in Portland. All tracks were produced 2012–2013, with one dating back to 1975 for good measure. The line-up of Dennis Duck, Ace Farren Ford, Rock and Roll Jackie, Ju Suk Reet Meate, Madellyn Villano, John Wiese and Donkey Flybye deliver a consistently amorphous, surreal-concrète sound.

The full length LP comes in an edition of 100 copies.

Tracklist:

1. Vout #9
2. Mutant Stomps
3. Hot In There
4. Variations VII
5. Code 61
6. Jug band Waltz

IMG_3256sc00840e75sc00842a99(Established 1973, LAFMS core group)

In Pasadena, California on November 23, 1973, the musical group called Smegma humbly came into being. Despite having no formal art or music training, several friends decided to experiment with playing “real” music. We tried a ” band without musicians” concept, by allowing musicians only for special parts as needed. The only other rule was, “NO HIPPY MUSIC” or any other contemporary sounds. We developed our own “primitive suburban folk” approach and traditions. At first, we felt completely isolated. We were aware of the LA freak scene (Zappa, Captain Beefheart, Wild Man Ficher), but it was only a distant influence. John Cage, Harry Partch, Eric Dolphy, Sun Ra, Buckminster Fuller and many other great minds of previous generations were more influential than our peers.

Most of the band moved to Portland Oregon in 1975. Simultaneously, we became involved with the Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS), contributing audio LPs, cassettes and visual art. Contributions to LAFMS recently culminated with a collective performance at The Getty Center in Los Angeles in 2011.

Our approach of playfully respecting the great music of the past and pushing it into the future engages a small but interesting group of people from all over the western world and Japan. In the 1980’s, we were contacted by people from the U.K. Japan, Germany, France and others to contribute to several vinyl LP’s and cassettes. These releases included an early 45 rpm single on Mute(UK). Since 2005, we have been honored to perform in festivals in the UK and EU.

So far over 100 people have performed, recorded with, and/or helped work on projects with SMEGMA.

Current Smegma:

Ju Suk Reet Meate (Eric Stewart), Oblivia (Jackie Stewart aka Rock and Roll Jackie),  Dennis Duck (Dennis Mehaffey), Ace Farren Ford ( aka Ace of Space), Big Dirty (Brad Hostetler), Vetza (Vetza Trussel) ,Rogue Iniki (Nour Mobarak), John Wiese, Madelyn Villano, Alieta Train, David Morgan,  Cody, Jennifer, William Cyrus ford , Mars Ford.
