Three new books for Summer/Fall 2021!

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 2:09 pm

Very proud to announce that I’ll have THREE new books coming out in the second half of 2021.

First, JUNK SCULPTURE FROM THE NEW GILDED AGE: SELECTED POEMS, 2005-2017, coming from Moloko Print in Germany. The final proofs have been approved and it’s going to press soon and should be expected in July-August. This is a collection of long out-of-print pieces from old KSE chapbooks and elsewhere, none of which have been reprinted since, and it opens with “Lament For The Living,” my re-imagining of the final days of Chet Baker, and includes a wide variety of pieces including a blank verse Petrarchan sonnet from my collection SONNETS FOR BILL DOGGETT, and a number of poems I used to perform in the 2008-2013 period when I’d do multiple readings each year in different cities, along with the complete OBJECTLESS (for Kazimir Malevich), from 2007, which uses no nouns or pronouns, in my attempt to contrive a “no things” poetic equivalent to Malevich’s painting, a work that I’m very happy to see getting a second life. All have been reformatted (as an open-field poet, I compose by the page) for this unique volume. As I’ve moved on to exclusively long-form book-length poems since 2016, re-acquainting myself with these pieces is like looking at old adolescent pictures…it’s me, but I’ve changed since then. Moloko commissioned this book back in 2018 and has done a fine job—-I hope these older pieces find a new audience and thus new life.

Second, coming from Bear Manor Media in the late Summer/early Fall, the new collection of Ed Wood’s early 70s non-fiction articles for adult magazines, WHEN THE TOPIC IS SEX, compiled and edited by Bob Blackburn, for which I provided a critical introduction that is informative and that contextualizes these works within the overall body of Wood’s work and within the tradition of pulp magazine writing. This volume comes on the heels of the two previous volumes of Wood’s magazine fiction–Blood Spatters Quickly and Angora Fever–put together by Mr. Blackburn, who is one half of the estate of Kathleen O’Hara Wood (EW’s widow) and a true friend to Ed Wood’s memory and legacy. This book is sure to attract a lot of attention, is an exciting read, and will add a significant chunk to EW’s available writings. It was an honor to be involved with this book and I look forward to its release and reception.

Murillo: The Self-Portraits

Third, now edited and formatted and also off to the printers is my new poetry book, from KSE, TWO SELF-PORTRAITS (AFTER MURILLO), which is in the diptych format used in my previous book COMPLEMENTARY ANGLES, and is a forty-six page work inspired by the two surviving self-portraits from the Spanish Baroque painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. That should be available for online purchase by August (I hope), and I’ll write about it more when it’s about to be released. Until then, why not grab a copy of COMPLEMENTARY ANGLES now–it’s a work I’m quite proud of and you can order it today for only $8.95. Here’s the link:

https://www.amazon.com/Complementary-Angles-Bill-Shute/dp/B08RR7GDFB

As always, thanks for your interest over the years/decades in my various projects. Since the first issue of my Inner Mystique ‘zine came out circa 1981, some of you have now been onboard this train of mine for nearly 40 years (and I’ve been a contributor to UGLY THINGS magazine for over 35 years !).

To close (I’ll be heading over to Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico, soon for the start of the horse-racing season, our first live racing in two years), here is the author bio that Moloko Print is using for JUNK SCULPTURE FROM THE NEW GILDED AGE:

Working out of San Antonio,
Texas, Bill Shute (born 1958) has
published thirteen books and over
one hundred chapbooks of open-field
poetry, assemblages of particulars
from an increasingly beaten-down
and militarized American South and
Southwest. He has recorded poetry and-music collaborations with a
number of experimental and
free-jazz artists, including
Alfred 23 Harth, and since 2006 he
has operated the South Texas-based
small label and press Kendra
Steiner Editions. Shute has also
written extensively about music
since the 1970s and has been
a contributor for Ugly Things
magazine for 35 years. In 2012
he assembled the band for and
produced an acclaimed Austin
concert by legendary outsider
musician Jandek. Most recently
he issued the book-length poem
Complementary Angles and provided
the critical introduction for
a new collection of filmmaker
Edward D. Wood Jr.’s early 1970s
non-fiction writings, When The
Topic Is Sex (Bear Manor Media).

Chet Baker, ‘Swings Pretty’ (Sunset Records 1967 comp of earlier Pacific Jazz material)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:05 am

You can’t go wrong with Chet Baker’s many Pacific Jazz sessions, so a somewhat random comp of that material, mixing vocal and instrumental tracks, is an excellent way to highlight that rich catalogue. Liberty’s SUNSET budget label had a number of excellent compilations (a Ventures one was the first Ventures album I owned) from the library of Imperial/Liberty/Pacific Jazz and related labels, and I picked this up for a dollar before I ever had any of the original albums from which this material came. Nothing new here, but if you are not that knowledgeable about Chet Baker’s body of work, this is a fine starting point, and although I know this material well, I played this while working today and found it a wonderful selection and the programming gave it a new freshness. Enjoy. Thank you, Chet and crew(s).

Having an album on Kapp Records circa 1970 was not the best career move in terms of either industry clout or hipness, though there were some fine albums released on that Decca/MCA subsidiary. I vaguely remember hearing something from this album late at night on Denver’s KFML or maybe a Boulder station back in the day. The band consisted of Matthew Kelly, a respected West Coast blues harmonica player and member of the band Horses who recorded an album in 1969, with 3 British musicians, after Kelly relocated to the UK. It’s the perfect mix of roots/country-rock and blues. When I found my copy buried in the garage a few months ago and played it for the first time in maybe 20 years, my strange reaction was “this album could have been produced by Chris Hillman”….interpret that as you wish.

Somehow the mix of these rootsy Brits with an American who was knee-deep in the blues really worked. This has been reissued a few times in the last 20 years and is highly recommended….see what you think. Pour yourself some rye with a splash of rainwater and put it on after midnight. Thanks to GOSPEL OAK for a timeless piece of work that really transcends genre. As I get older and life flows on, albums like GOSPEL OAK offer up even more riches with each passing year.

Jimmy Reed, ‘Down in Virginia’ (1969 Bluesway LP)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 3:04 am

Jimmy Reed’s post-Vee Jay records are probably not the best way to discover this great artist, a man responsible for creating an entire genre of the blues himself, but then, as with Lightnin’ Hopkins, all of his work is of a piece, and perhaps it’s like cutting a slice off of a pig that’s been roasted on a spit at some outdoor pig-roast party. It might be better the cut a slice off of some parts of the hog than of other parts, but it’s the same pig, and it’s all going to be good. So why not start here….with this later album. It’s a prime slice of Jimmy Reed and while it’s not as classic and focused on creating jukebox-friendly singles as the Vee Jay material, it’s pure Reed and I enjoy it and its mellow vibe. If you’ve just listened to a compilation of his Vee Jay hits, this will sound diffuse, unoriginal, and tossed-off….but like anyone working in a well-defined style, you either want another dose of Reed or you don’t. I do. I’ve spoken with people who saw Reed and met him during the late 60’s/early 70’s period, and the man had a number of health issues, so I’m glad we have what we do. Just because the last can of Colt 45 Malt Liquor tastes exactly like the next one doesn’t mean that I do not want another. In fact, that would be a good beverage to enjoy this album by.

All compositions credited to Al Smith except where noted

“Sugar, Sugar Woman” (Al Smith, O. D. Robinson) – 2:35
“Don’t Light My Fire” – 2:35
“Slow Walking Mama” (Al Smith, Louis Smith) – 2:40
“Jump and Shout” (Mary Lee Reed) – 2:30
“Down In Virginia” (Mary Lee Reed) – 2:35
“Check Yourself” (Mary Lee Reed) – 2:35
“I Shot an Arrow to the Sky” (Mary Lee Reed) – 2:37
“Ghetto Woman Blues” – 2:25
“Big Boss Lady” – 2:32
“I Need You So” (Mary Lee Reed) – 2:40
“The Judge Should Know” (Al Smith, Louis Smith) – 2:45

Jimmy Reed – guitar, vocals, harmonica
Wayne Bennett – guitar
Eddie Taylor – guitar, bass
Phil Upchurch – bass
Al Duncan – drums

A. B. SKHY, ‘Ramblin’ On’ (1970 LP, MGM Records, produced by Kim Fowley)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:20 am

A1 Gotta Be Free 2:33
A2 My Baby’s Quit Me 3:50
A3 Pearl 1:38
A4 Lady In The Dark 4:23
A5 Hope For The Future 3:10
B1 Sweet Mother Earth 3:57
B2 Groovin’ 3:30
B3 Trackin’ Shoes 4:28
B4 I’m Walkin’ 2:40
B5 Gazebo 5:56

This is an album I’ve owned since the 1970’s, when I picked it up for a dollar or two used because it was produced by Kim Fowley. AB SKHY can be found on many 1960’s West Coast show flyers and posters. Originally a blues band from Milwaukee, they came out to San Francisco and built up a following through their live shows. Both of their MGM albums are well worth picking up for the fan of late 60’s blues-rock bands. They’d extended a bit from their blues roots by the time of this second LP, but they never forgot them, giving their music a strong and honest foundation. No wonder I’ve kept the album all these years and still play it a few times each year. If you have not heard it, now’s your chance.

I wish I’d had the chance to ask Kim Fowley about them during the 3 or 4 conversations I had with him in the 1980’s—-I’m sure he could have “summed them up” in a few pithy phrases that would have been quite insightful.

Ray Danton and Guy Madison in SANDOKAN AGAINST THE LEOPARD OF SARAWAK (Italy, 1964)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:12 am

SANDOKAN AGAINST THE LEOPARD OF SARAWAK (Italy, 1964), starring RAY DANTON as Sandokan and GUY MADISON (but not Madison’s voice, alas) as Yanez. Directed by LUIGI CAPUANO. Many other familiar faces here including MARIO PETRI, FRANCA BETTOIA, ALBERTO FARNESE, ALDO BUFI LANDI, etc. Nice to hear Danton dubbing himself, as he had such a rich and commanding voice. aka THRONE OF VENGENACE, aka RETURN OF SANDOKAN. The perfect viewing after a long and tiring work day for those who like both American adventure serials of the 1930s and 1940s as well as Italian sword and sandal films–this combines the best of both worlds in a pulpy stew that would appeal to the ten year old boy in all of us. Also, Danton and Madison, two of my favorites, make a great team. In the early days of VHS video tape, I somehow had a number of films (7 or 8, as I remember) directed by LUIGI CAPUANO, and the man had a flair for pulpy costumed adventures–he worked with Danton, Madison, and Lex Barker multiple times, which shows his good taste in leading men, and he brought out sides of them not seen so much in their American films.

Dorsey Brothers Band Live At Hotel Statler ~1956

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:06 am

Tommy Dorsey would pass away later in 1956 and brother Jimmy would follow in 1957, not living to see the Big Band era fully marginalized in the 1960’s, but they kept the fires burning until the end, and this 1956 fifteen-minute broadcast is a wonderful snapshot of their late period, at a venue they played often in the early 50’s, the Hotel Statler.

Better known as the Hotel Pennsylvania, both before and after being known as the Statler, a lot of Big Band history happened there—-indeed, the Glenn Miller hit  “Pennsylvania 6-5000” was based on the hotel’s phone number. The hotel closed indefinitely due to Covid in April 2020.

Just imagine that you’ve saved for a month for dinner, cocktails, a show, and an overnight stay at the Hotel Statler (had I been born a few generations earlier, I’d have taken Mary Anne there!)…. YOU, a long-time Dorsey Brothers fan from the provinces, enjoying a juicy prime rib (with a tangy horseradish crust), a bottle of Cab Sav, and finally getting to see Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey….and at an elegant venue! NBC is broadcasting a fifteen-minute segment of the performance, so the rest of the family back home can hear what you are experiencing in-person. Just two years later, such an experience would have been impossible, on any number of levels, so let the waiter refill your crystal water goblet, and enjoy another fresh-baked Parker House roll and a pat of butter with the hotel’s logo embedded into it….ladies and gentlemen, the Fabulous Dorseys.

BLUE CHEER IV (1969 LP, Philips Records)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 2:11 am

The fourth BLUE CHEER album (simply titled “Blue Cheer” but called BLUE CHEER IV among us BC fans) does not get a lot of respect because it’s compared with their amazing first three albums. How could anything compare with those? On the 4th, 5th, and 6th albums—-all of which I’ve owned for decades—-the ever-evolving Blue Cheer line-up goes in some different directions, with a more laid-back sound that’s both rootsy and trippy, but trippy in an earthier way than the earlier albums. One online source said that it sounds like a cross between The Band and Steppenwolf, and that really nails it, IMHO. The songwriting can be a bit generic, and if Dickie Peterson is not singing, it might be hard to recognize that this is actually the same Blue Cheer who did OUT OF FOCUS, but it’s a solid three-star album and if it were not being compared with their first three albums, and if it had come out under some other name than Blue Cheer, it would probably be considered a “lost classic” of some sort. Put it on after a long day at work when you’re winding down with a beer….if you’re like me, you’ll be glad that it exists and that the band kept evolving through the final three albums in their original six-album incarnation (of course, they went back to their original sound/format in the later recordings….BLITZKREIG OVER NUREMBERG is a masterpiece of “heavy” and throbbing Blue Cheer). Besides, a band that combines elements of The Band and Steppenwolf would be a must-hear in my book, though Dickie and the boys found their own sound and can’t be called derivative.

Imagine yourself coming down at 3 a.m. in a cabin on a mountainside outside Ojai, listening to this album by candlelight….
