this show is archived here--listen!

background: 90 [degrees] South: A Distant Memory of Home

Evan Parker/Steve Beresford/Arjen Gorter/Han Bennink: The Bear
   it does everyone good to get out of character sometimes

reading: from Colson Whitehead: The Intuitionist

Candie Hank and Hanayo: Les Sucettes
   it seems awfully familiar somehow
Serge Gainsbourg: Les Sucettes
Klaus Nomi: Lightning Strikes
   artifice rules, man!
Le Tigre: They want us to make a symphony out of the sound of women
swallowing their own tongues
   and they are happy to oblige
Crown Heights Affair: Every Beat Of My Heart
   what did we tell you about artifice?

Dick Justice: Cocaine
   Mr. "Henry Lee" had some other interests too
Äss: Don't Bring Me Down
   hooray for covers that are vastly better than their originals
Pleasure Heads: Clove Cigarettes
   reminded an old friend of mine of "Rip Her To Shreds"
The Feelies: Invitation
   it's all in the wrist

Nobukazu Takemura: Souvenir In Chicago
   stellar and very long glitch-and-live-instruments jam w/ half of Tortoise

Screamers: If I Can't Have What I Want I Don't Want Anything
   we are--robot! we are--robot!
Sylvesterboy: Independence Is No Solution
   so are we! well, their little brothers, roughly speaking
Gonzales: Clarinets
   that quasi-Todd Terry opening gambit always works
Kongas: Anikana-O
   least authentic Afrobeat band ever

Dear Nora: One Two Three Four
   lyric determined by circumstances of composition itself
The New Pornographers: Mystery Hours
   this album just Does! Not! Stop!
Pest 5000: Materialize
   it's a Canadian thing, apparently

Boredoms/Ken Ishii: Unidentified Freaked-up Outsteppers
   second in the stellar megamix series--glad to hear "Acid Police"

Nina Simone: Ain't Got No--I Got Life
   actually a hit single of sorts
Sick Bees: Tool Room
   sex as work as redemption as resumption of meaningful routine
