Sex, Drugs And Rock'N'Roll... Courtesy Of PCL LinkDump

pcl_linkdump.jpgFor the better part of the last year, PCL Linkdump has been one of the great one-stop link filter sites for all your middle-brow art, interesting music, retro-style archaeology, and general pop-culture needs. Since April, its also been regaling us with a series of weekly mp3 postings; thematically divided into a month each of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll. These have now been compiled into one neat little downloadable net release, complete with accompanying cover art.

Included in the collection is one woman’s cheesy ode to her vibrator; a Swedish version of Je táime (with mild operatic aspirations); a rather disconcerting recording of male coital grunting; some raunchy under-the-counter rhythm’n’blues; the classic jazz-era drug standards– Reefer Man by Cab Calloway, and Who Put The Benzedrine In Mrs Murphy’s Ovaltine by Harry The Hipster; a midnight Southern revival rant from Jerry “I’m Goin’ To Hell For Playin’ The Devil’s Music” Lee Lewis… And much more besides.

But hasten with the right-clicking – the collection will only be up till the end of this week.

(FOOTNOTE: To anyone who’s perturbed by the sudden disappearance of past comments on this site; my apologies. Because of the ongoing failure of MT-Blacklist to hold back the tide of comment spam, I’ve switched over to Haloscan. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to take any of the old comments with me.)
