The Legendary Kim Fowley introduces Fenella Fielding
Kim Fowley requires no introduction for music aficionados, being the eminence grise behind a host of rock’n’roll classics. He recorded the Rivingtons, who infected the world with their gibberish meisterwerk, ‘Papa Oom Mow Mow’, and produced ‘Alley Oop’ by the Hollywood Argyles; he has connections with Savoy faves Frank Zappa, and with that mercurial talent, PJ Proby. He’s credited with twenty-three Platinum and thirty-seven Gold Discs, but these account for only some of the many million-sellers produced all over the world during a fifty-year career. Anyone who’s looked over Fowley’s comprehensive website will recognise an astute man cultivating a potent rock’n’roll persona.
If his CV isn’t enough, Fowley is also a deft wielder of the pen, which makes him the perfect choice to deliver a suitably high-octane introduction for this album. A Gridley Wave transmission from the Dying Earth. Here’s a whip of his Excellent Prismatic Spray…
FENELLA FIELDING IS! A 21st Century Goddess of Audio Art and Noise Illusion!
Hollywood USA.... Hey folks, it’s an obvious fact, we’re at the End Of The World. Life as we KNEW it, is over. All we have are text messages—cell phones—and downloadable teardrops… Black is the New Mainstream… Gay is the New Black… Murder is the New Orgasm… Orgasm is the New Flaw.
So we need a Bit of Yesterday to get us through this Robotic-Time-Warp-Blip, that makes relaxing IMPOSSIBLE! This bit of Yesterday turns out to be…not a Legend of Yesterday, but a Prophet/Priestess of Tomorrow.
Her Succulent/Velvet-Blue-Saloon vocal tones made me believe I was having Naked Lunch in a Berlin bubble-bath, next to Marlene Dietrich… Somewhere in Berlin, circa 1928–1932.
Hence, we have a message in an aural bottle, from a 21st Century, Axis Sally/Tokyo Rose: Fenella Fielding.
Bring on the smelling salts! Then give me the Silver-Spoon and Golden Needle, so I can blend into the Wonder-Word Void, where Ms Fielding must surely reside.
Fenella’s delivery of the following titles places me squarely at the foot of her bed, on my knees, in a position of worship!
... So there it is, dear listener/reader/consumer/critic/?… A Fan Letter… written from the heart to Fenella Fielding and The Savoy Family… from a most grateful listener.
… Much love & respect,
