Pop Dr(((O)))nes: Epidsode 7
Plenty of amazing new material to share with everyone this week. In fact, I have so many recent releases piled up and coming through the mail that I'll probably have enough to work with for the rest of the summer. Not that I'm complaining, but my bank account and the limited space in my apartment have been closing in on me. That being said, anyone out there interested in hearing their music on the radio (especially all you local types), feel free to send a CD, cassette, piece of vinyl (!), or an mp3 my way. As long as it fits with the general theme of the show (ie. garage, lo-fi, no-fi, noise, drone, or anything I like, really) then there's a great chance it's gonna see some airtime. Leave a comment on the blog if you'd like to get a hold of me. Or, hell, call me on the air and harass me during my show. Thanks to everyone out there who've already donated music to the cause, and thanks to everyone who's called the show.
Outta this new batch of music played this week I have to say the album that's received the most play is the new one by Nothing People, "Late Night", on the mighty S-S label. Not a huge advancement on their album from last year, "Anonymous", but the hooks are mighty strong this time around, and their cover of Syd Barrett's Late Night is even better than The Cleaner's From Venus' version or Belong's submerging of said version (blogged about here.) Check out the S-S page and snatch a copy up for a mere $10. And while yr there, grab a copy of the new self-released Mayyors 12", which I haven't heard yet, but my copy's on the way. I'm working on a wholesale order of that, so interested parties oughtta drop a comment below.
Also had another great on the air chat with Josh Rose this week. This time around we played local artist/black metal aficionado/Zulu regular/general music lover Sean Coggins, who Josh and I have both known for years. Sean had an exhibit a few months back at the Access gallery, at which there was a cassette for sale. The cassette was basically Sean taking dozens of Black Metal tracks and piling them on top of each other, creating a wall of white noise. Hence the title "Black Metal Makes White Noise." Download the show below to hear the whole story and the cassette. Some pics from Sean's show posted below.
Download the show here. (Right click, then Save As) Disregard the 90 second faux-dub section at the start of the show.
PS. thanks to Grimmertown for the love and the new Pop Dr(((O)))nes logo!
