"More Blood!"

courtesy http://www.thecreeper.netthat's what my friend from Oslo kept saying once he heard Blood Ulmer years ago - that was "America, Do You Remember the Love?"

we've been entranced with Blood since '82, and though his music has been "hard to find" in Amerika - well as with Nina Hagen (previous post) the 'net seems to facilitate a growing appreciation of his unique work

you can find numerous stellar videos on YT
some of the kewlest stuff has been uploaded by ARSMAC1 :
Pleasure Control on Italian TV, 1987, wow!
Rush Hour, at the Dance-a-teria (!) 1980, featuring David Murray
Street Bride, on the street in Toronto, 1993. love those b&w boots he always wore ;)
A Thing for Joe, with the New Art Jazz quartet at Birdland, 2001
Timeless, Berlin 1998 - the great trio with Jamaladeen Tacuma and the *ultimate drummer* Grant Calvin Weston
