Peter Ivers slap the ginkels

Peter Ivers "Slap the Ginkels"

Night Flight's main pitchman of punk, Peter Ivers was the host of "New Wave Theater" which aired from 1981 - 1983. He also had an early 70s band called Peter Ivers Peter Ivers.

Here's a classic example of Peter's improvisational genius with his rant to wake up Morty Ginkel.

UPDATE: Since there are those who have a bit of trouble working out exactly what Ivers is saying, here's a transcript:

It's of barnyard importance that Ginkels recognize that they've gotta learn to behave or we'll never get to Humanity Central... And the radium void'll be with us for a long time to come.

Our techno-bent Aurthur Godfrey state leaves no room for transfusions and, once again, it's up to the seers to slap the Ginkels through awareness. We know it looks hopeless, but it's us together, and you alone, who'll effect the changes we need. The Controllers don't have the reason or awareness to change... And Art's alarm clock role has been buried in museum-land.

So new music makes noise and it IS! But remember, it's what YOU'RE doing, it's what it's all saying to YOU. The message is, "Morty Ginkel, wake up or it's glow in the dark time... yesterday.

New music is get-up-and-die, and death is tomorrow's beginning.
