Although they were a pretty fair surf group, the Crossfires' real claim to fame is that the group somehow evolved into the pop/folk-group stars the Turtles in the mid-'60s. Before that transformation, they managed to release two local singles, and a fair amount of unreleased studio and live material surfaced many years later…
"Hoodoo Man" was Birth Control's third, their most famous and best-selling album not only due to its daring funny artwork. They've been accused those days by UK magazine Melody Maker being No. 1 copyists but we all know well that progressive rock music coming from Germany hadn't been taken really serious by British press and had been tagged with the disdainfully meant label Krautrock (not exactly what we understand nowadays by this). Certainly it might be true that they were using elements of famous hard and psyche rock bands from late 60's/early 70's but one has well to admit that they combined all those influences quite well with some other more progressive ones…
Formed as far back as 66, this group recorded their wild debut album (between Zappa, Soft Machine, Crimson and Purple, if you can picture that) as a fairly international quintet (4 different nationalities between the five of them) before breaking up the following year, with their sax player, John Earle joining Gnidrolog for their classic Lady Lake. Singer-drummer Seyffer then joined the group Medusa, which soon became the second line-up of NDW and by the start of 73, they were recording their "We Never Lost Control", which was more conventional prog (Nektar comes to mind). NDW stayed a very unstable unit with their straight rock album "Only The Dancer" recorded as a quartet in England..
"You're the Man… Act Like One!" Look, I know you're not a mind reader, so I'm going to be blunt… The majority of women like to be fucked. And I mean really fucked. Yes, the media has lied to you.
I love having "innocent" conversations laced with sexual tension. Because, it's not what you say, it's HOW you say it. You don't want a woman to look at you as just a friend; you want her to *feel* a SEXUAL TENSION every time you speak to her. She has to FEEL your masculine intent, and that she's in immediate danger of being laid on her back around you. And that ability to project sexuality to a woman is fundamental - and key to nonverbal sexual mind control. After all, there's a big difference between just "he's an attractive guy" to "I want to f*ck this guy right now!".
