luv’s 420 joint

when dj luv’s records started i had the idea of making a mixtape dedicated to marijuana. every mix up here was made in a haze of pot smoke so it was inevitable that time and inspiration would coalesce into luv’s 420 joint. an epic journey that crosses many genres and eras exhibiting how this glorious weed is for everyone and all can reap it’s benefits. to quote Louis Armstrong :
“We did call ourselves Vipers, which could have been anybody from all walks of life that smoked and respected ‘gage’. That was our cute little name for marijuana… We always looked at pot as a sort of medicine, a cheap drunk and with much better thoughts than one that’s full of liquor… the respect for it (gage) will stay with me forever. I have every reason to say these words and am proud to say them. From experience.”
so from one viper to another, happy 4/20. now take a hit off luv’s 420 joint.

luv392 Upholstery Farm

Upholstery Farm

back in the day Davey, Mickey, John and i would head downtown to this boss club called the Upholstery Farm. it was an amazing space, lots of levels, hideaway nooks and a big dancefloor. the place was totally psychedelicized. it use to be a fabric warehouse back in the 1940s but for a few years in the sixties it was the best place to hang out, pick up chicks and dance our cares away. it closed at the end of 1968 due to shady dealings but i will never forget the groovy tunes we would shake and shimmy to every night at the Upholstery Farm.
