Kim Fowley and the Rubbertown Freaks - Wormculture (1995)
The same year than Kings of Saturday Night was released this other collaborative album, one of his best to my own opinion, belonging to the weirdo experimental side of our Kim, my fave side (with his acoustic one), the one he explored in albums such as Sunset Boulevard or Son of Frankenstein. Here's a collaboration with one man in particular, Steve Darrow ex-Hollywood Rose, the band in which there was Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin, who plays most of the instruments and composes music. Kim, as usual, puts his narrative incredibly idiosyncrasic and deeper than it may seem, associated with Andrea Beltramo (from Snap-Her, see about them here) who plays her female partner. It's usual Kim talks to a queen slut routine, but I'm an unconditional amateur so no problem for me. There's plenty of words in the inner sleeves but it's red on grey so not really possible to scan them in good enough quality to be seen correctly. What's great in this album it's that there's no real weak moments, even the ones that may seem a little over-indulgent, it's Kim Fowley's work in progress as we love it. In 1995, he was one of the rare old rock warrior with any relevance. Now he's dead, I'll do my best to help his music to survive through time. When I'm dead, maybe others will do. Catch it here. Many more to come.
