SISSYDUDE LOVES: BEFORE THE DISCO… SYLVESTER AND THE HOT BAND!!!

Before the disco! Check out these awesome rockin’ tracks from Sylvester And The Hot Band! Two Albums: 1973’s SYLVESTER AND THE HOT BAND & BAZAAR…

WIKIPEDIA: Returning to San Francisco, Sylvester was offered the opportunity to record a demo album by Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner. Financed by A&M Records, the album featured a cover of Bonnie Bramlett and Leon Russell’s song “Superstar,” which had been a recent hit single for The Carpenters; nevertheless, A&M felt that the work was not commercially viable and declined to release the album. For the album, Sylvester and his manager Dennis Lopez had assembled a group of heterosexual white males—Bobby Blood on trumpet, Chris Mostert on saxophone, James Q. Smith on guitar, Travis Fullerton on drums, and Kerry Hatch on bass—whom he named The Hot Band. After A&M’s initial rejection, the band provided two songs for Lights Out San Francisco, an album compiled by San Francisco’s KSAN radio and released on the Blue Thumb label. Gaining a number of local gigs, they were eventually asked to open for English glam rock star David Bowie at the Winterland Ballroom; the gig did not sell particularly well, and Bowie later commented that San Francisco did not need him, because “They’ve got Sylvester,” referring to their shared preference for androgyny.

In early 1973, Sylvester and The Hot Band were signed by Bob Krasnow to Blue Thumb. On this label, they produced their first album, in which they switched their sound from blues to the more commercially viable rock, while the Pointer Sisters were employed as backing singers. Sylvester named this first album Scratch My Flower due to a gardenia-shaped scratch-and-sniff sticker adhered to the cover, although it was instead released under the title of Sylvester and his Hot Band. The album consisted primarily of covers of songs by artists such as James Taylor, Ray Charles, Neil Young, and Leiber and Stoller. Described by one of Sylvester’s biographers as lacking in “the fire and focus of the live shows”,it sold poorly on release.

THE AMAZING PHOTOS of CARL VAN VECHTEN (REPOST from 1/12/2011)

Not sure why, but once in a while old Sissydude posts disappear from public view, like this one. Since Walt Cessna’s Tumblr works always reminded me of Carl Van Vechten’s beautiful photos I thought I’d do a repost. Enjoy!

Jan 12/2011: So I’ve just been falling in love with these Van Vechten photos of young up & coming African American stars like Pearl Bailey (picture above), Billy Dee Williams, Jeffrey Holder, Diahann Carroll, Eartha Kitt, Ruby Dee & James Earl Jones… the patterned fabric backdrops, the silly (yet perfect) props… sooooo good. NOW let me share my faves (get ready… there’s a lot). Extensive archive HERE @ BEINECKE LIBRARY

A “CORRECT” MEGA POST! R.I.P.SPECT: WALT CESSNA

So sad to hear of Walt Cessna’s passing today. I really love his work and have had a few amusing Facebook conversations with him through the years. My favourite conversation was a couple of years back. Cessna messaged me saying that he wanted me to edit/curate his images for a book. I of course was very keen on doing this. I told him “yes” without knowing any details. Within two minutes he messaged me back to say “great” and that he’d like me to come over for dinner “tonight”. I told him sadly I couldn’t make it that night cus I lived in Toronto. That was the last I heard of the project. But we still kept in touch and he always appreciated when I posted his stuff on Sissydude.

We were part of the early queer Tumblr tribes that obsessively shared our love for sexy correctness. I adored his Tumblr photos… they reminded me of Carl Van Vechten’s photographs with a splash of Tiger Beat pin-ups by way of Drummer Magazine. Cessna’s photos mostly featured really cute boys as subjects. They were a little rough around the edges. They wore short shorts and eclectic accessories. And most importantly, the boys like to show skin. Walt’s images were vibrant, free, clever, dark, funny, sexy, sweet, sad, tough… and most of all, obsessive.

Since I’m an obsessive guy myself, I took a few hours and went through Cessna’s Tumblr archive and pulled the images that spoke to me today.
If you’d like to know more about Walt and see more of his work, I’ve added links here.

Correct Love to you Walter. XXXO John

RYAN POWERS IS MY NEW BOYFRIEND!!!

GUYBONE: Toned and towering, this svelte stud makes a great impression with everyone he meets. Piercing puppy dog eyes hang over his juicy, pouting lips and when he flashes that easy smile, you have no choice but to melt. His furry body begs to be cuddled with while he rubs his heavy, stiff cock all over you. And those feet. Fuck me. Big, beautiful feet with handsome arches and cute toes. This guy is a dream come true and an absolute blast to work with! Get your bib handy because you’re gonna be drooling all over yourself! pics via GUYBONE & POWERS’ TWITTER
