March 10, 2002: Show 149: Playing Favorites: my marathon premium CD liner notes
Playing Favorites is the collection of music I will be giving away only during my marathon show: from
3 AM - 6 AM on March 10, 2002. The notes in the Comments column below are the kinds of notes I write to myself as I am preparing to do a show, and also represent what I think of each piece as I listen to it during the show itself.
This premium will automatically be yours for a contribution of US $60 or more to this marathon show. To pledge online during the show to get my CD, you can go to the WFMU Marathon 2002 Pledge Page, and specify in the Comments area at the bottom that you want to contribute to my show and get the premium CD. Anyone pledging at the Mouse of Today level (US $330) or above can also go to the Pledge Page and request the CD before and after the show. Otherwise, you must pledge during the show itself.
During the show, you can also pledge by calling 800-989-9368.
I spend hours before a show choosing what to play and just what order everything must be in, both of which I do almost entirely by feel. While I pay particular attention to the arrangement of music within each set, the order of each set within the show as a whole is also important, and I've done exactly the same here. Doing shows in this manner is the only way I know of having the music affect me to the deepest degree possible.
I hope it has the same effect on you.
Set 1: subtle acid and mystery.
|Angus MacLauren||"Drunken Nightmare" (11:33)||Glass Music||Delicate echoes, shimmering, quiet….until the membrane of reality starts to subtly warp all around you.|
|Not Breathing Vs. Dead Music On Air||"not breathing versus dvoa: unknown kadath" (12:48)||A Fire In The Bronx Zoo||Gradually unfolding, slowly washes over you in mostly dreamily mysterious, slow waves.|
Set 2: from dub to heavy.
|King Tubby||"Dub From The Roots" (4:50)||From The Palace Of Dub||Very easy going, reverbed just right, even a bit spaced – but with a sweet spot.|
|Beastie Boys||"Intergalactic" (3:29)||Beastie boys Anthology: The Sounds Of Science (selections)||Easy, getting more serious, very catchy, but a fun aspect as well. Pop hip-hop?|
|Orbital||"Tension" (5:51)||The Altogether||Bit experimental & techno-y, heavier, more urgent.|
Set 3: from brass band wedding music to...watch out!
|Fanfare Ciocarlia||"Asfalt Tango" (6:08)||Baro Biao||An amazing brass band from Romania. High energy dance music.|
|Secret Chiefs 3||"Horsemen Of The Invisible" (3:36)||Book M||Starts off with a central European feel, but quickly changes to over the top heaviness.|
Set 4: psych & acid.
|Sciflyer||"Girl" (4:04)||Studio Audience||Elegiac, highly sentimental & romantic. Almost sad, even.|
|Surface Of Eceon||"The Open Sea" (6:30)||The King Beneath The Mountain||Warm, full sounding, gradually and moderately builds in intensity, very sentimental.|
|Secret Chiefs 3||"Book T: Waves Of Blood" (2:27)||Hurqalya||Heavier, like acid surf-rock from outer space.|
|The Bran||"baincol babidol" (3:29)||3xx3||Heavy, serious acid, sometimes even pounding. Nothing warm or sentimental about it. It's the theme song of the invaders from the dark side.|
Set 5: a few minutes of prime rock/punk.
|Shag Nasty||"Looking For Love" (2:28)||Bad Teeth #1 (various artists)||Punk, but with almost a pop, insistent and catchy feel.|
|Safety Pins||"Punkassbitch" (2:33)||Punkassbitch||Straight-ahead, no let up at all. Great to play loud.|
|Adrenalin O.D.||"Paul's Not Home" (1:55)||New York Thrash (various artists)||The best for last: prime, stoopit, fast, frenetic, great, supreme, maybe even godlike.|
