Eccentric Soul: The Saru Label [Numero Group/Rocket
Review by: James Tsai 

The consistently brilliant archival specialist and all-genre encompassing Chicago based label, Numero Group has done it again. For volume 20 of the labels flagship series Eccentric Soul, we are transported back to the late 60s and early 70s, and the location is the 51st biggest city in the USA, Cleveland. 

Cleveland is not just the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the mighty avant-garde industrial rockers Pere Ubu. Cleveland is also the birthplace of The OJays and the namesake of this soul compilation: the short-lived Saru label, which The OJays had a lot to do with including the formation of. 

Pretty much the entire output of the Saru catalogue is featured on this 22-track compilation. Saru only issued twelve 7 singles within its three year lifespan from 68 to 71. There are also a couple of tracks featured from closely related label Horoscope (its entire catalogue is even smaller at three 7 singles!).

To my ears the songs on this double album by The OJays (they went onto bigger and better things when they jumped on the Philly soul train), Panella Kelly, Out of Sights, Elements, The Ponderosa Twins (Clevelands brief answer to the...

NSW drug dog uproar following festival "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

SYDNEY, AAP Activists say the security operation at a Sydney music festival was a serious abuse of police powers after ticket holders were denied entry and banned from the Olympic Park site for six months based on the reactions from drug detection dogs.

The Above & Beyond festival went ahead on Saturday evening after it was plunged into controversy this week by a NSW Police threat to ban revellers if a dog reacted positively, even if no drugs were found.

NSW Greens MP David Shoebridge says the Sniff Off campaign team had spoken to numerous people who were refused entry after being sniffed and searched, even though no drugs were found on them.

(They) were issued with banning notices preventing them from returning to the entire Olympic Park site for six months, he said in a statement on Sunday.

This is a serious abuse of police powers and has caused substantial distress to those who were unfairly excluded.

Two detection dogs were used on crowds on Saturday night in a search area beyond an initial entry point and out of the reach of media cameras.

The Greens claim sniffer dogs can get it wrong in up to 75 per cent of cases and argue police should adopt harm-minimisation tactics instead.

Mr Shoebridge said NSW Police had ignored public opinion and run right over well established civil liberties with heavy-handed punishment of concertgoers who were the victims of drug dog false-positives.

As well as the more than $100 for the ticket, many attendees have also paid for flights and accommodation, meaning the denial of entry has put them substantially out of pocket., he said.

The move was also criticised by civil libertarians and even a former Australian Border Force commissioner as an overreach.

Activist Tom Raue, who was at the concert, said officers ordered his volunteers to stop handing out pamphlets about the drug dog program, citing a 2012 regulation governing the entire Sydney Olympic Park precinct.

An attempt by Mr Raue and other plaintiffs to secure an injunction that would have prevented the police plan going ahead fell flat on Friday after a judge ruled they had no cause to complain about alleged injustices in advance.

The Greens said they would challenge the move by police in both the parliament and the courts.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre slammed for insensitive onstage rape joke Tone Deaf

San Francisco psych-rockers The Brian Jonestown Massacre are currently in the middle of a huge Australian tour, but their recent Sydney performance left a bad taste in the mouths of punters after the groups frontman dropped a rather insensitive rape joke in the middle of their last night.

As Junkee reports, The Brian Jonestown Massacre descended upon Sydneys Metro Theatre last night to deliver a normally beloved set of psych-rock. However, many fans werent too fond of the bands onstage comments.

While speaking to the crowd between songs, frontman Anton Newcombe began touching on a wide range of topics, including Sydneys lockout laws, and deriding bands such as A Place To Bury Strangers and The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (who originally went by the name of The Elements) before complaining about the amount of fans screaming during his dialogue.

All the people that are screaming, thats how I missed everything in life, is because I screamed right throughout -, began Newcombe before trailing off.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club is also called The Elements and thats a stupid fucking name, he continued. In fact theres another band called The Elements with a flyer outside the show. Whatever, youre a dickhead. Your mom probably screamed like that when she was being raped and thats how you were born.

As can be seen in the above video, while some fans applauded the edgy humour on display, many others booed loudly in disapproval of the tasteless joke.

A handful of fans also took to Twitter to express their discomfort in regards to Newcombes comments, noting that this will be the last time they pay money to see the rocker perform.
