Karla LaVey brings the muletime dread yet again for another installment of her BLACK X-MASS celebration. A really fun and dreary christmas-themed variety show great for the wee hours of christmas night with THE FAM when everyone's drunk and tired and the kids are all XBOXING their WEES into each other's IPOOD. Stick this on, it starts innocently enough with the Nutcracker Suite on Pipe Organ, but very soon you have strange sounds from a french film and before you know it Santa Claus Has Got the AIDS, and either you have a great family and the best of friends, or you drove everyone away and now you can finally settle into your post-holiday vein/fix. ahhhh shucks....merry christmas.

George Cremaschi formerly of West Oakland, CA, currently residing in the Czech Republic, but finding his way all over the world: Splitting the wood back in W.Oakland again for this fine set of electrons and space. Flexing time between the contrabass and the electronic world, this is a great balance of analog noisescapes, digital soundscapes, and acoustic woodscrapes, with a couple of stellar clarinet/contrabass duo recordings from Germany to round out the set. George has a nuanced attention span, or at least one that jives with my own rhythms. Highly recommended listen.

Ahhh King Riff. The sights, the smells, the wonders of it all. An excellent visit to his latest vunderspez in Chinatown! The entrance greets you with a painted RA hands-outreached beckoning you down below into the subterranean dwelling-studio-vomitorium. Mr. Eric Bauer, my longtime collaborator and friend, has been collecting strange and amazing studio gear for the past decade (some of it actually works!), and has now built himself a nice working vintage-style recording studio with control room (and puke piles). He has taken good advantage of this for the broadcast, as the control room is prepped for the first hour's performance--"POPEYE'D": a tape-music onslaught manipulated processed and mixed live during the full-hour of insanity. This is concrete of the best kind. Surprisingly "prolific" (as hans grusel called it the next day). After the first hour, everything devolves in a puke-breathed' fashion down around the corner into the live room and radio///CASSIOPEIA BUFFING ZONE 07.09.08

first off, this woj can cook! let him stir up some veggies for you, he's got the culinary talent in spades. put this man on the cooking show. you know the one. with the angry brit head chef and a bunch of loser saps sweatin into pots and choppin fingers instead of chard. dam. ok, after the meal this woj puts together a real fine variety show + some live depression to lubricate your mouth pistol before the big shove. listen close for some real hidden gems in there--my highlight: the only known recording of Depeche Commode featuring DNA+Planetsize in duo. paniful. in fact this whole fucking set is painful. god dam. where's the party like the last woj? where's the laughs? ah ok...

A bit of tech info I must pass on for folks listening in to this performance-recording: First off, our soundcrack session this time is broadcast live from the 8-channel surround tinkertoy studio of mr. James Goode. It's a real treat to get to hear James mix his small electronics and physical object clank in surround, and in order to approximate this for the stereo broadcast, we decided to do a mix of live mics and direct mixer feed to achieve in depth what would be lacking in multiple channels of broadcast sound. I think the results are pretty stunning. Even more stunning is the fact that much (and in the case of the 2nd set--99%) of the sounds are created from small physical objects--sometimes manipulated digitally, but oftentimes you are hearing an actual physical object being manipulated with incredible non-DSP tools such as PHYSICS and GRAVITY and HANDS and MOUTH.

oolies is visiting knucklehead Mitchell Brown's vision of a patched-together electro-ethio-funk bread and jam. mitchell plays synthesizer and drums and is accompanied by Loachfillet on guitar and noises and jake rodriguez on bass and hajouj. hot fun in the sun--this is a cracked cranium's version of west oakland on a sunny saturday afternoon. preaching religion on the corner, and muni trains passing express under the bay. cream of the cropped by loach and jake to give you the best moments. pardon my passing sausage. 69mb 50min radio///Thomas Dimuzio 04.23.08

A really beautiful longform performance here, looking out into the vast pacific ocean nothingness. Thomas Dimuzio's house sits high above the Sunset district in SF, with an amazing view out towards the other side of the world. Something strange about the seashore this evening as it provokes a bit of claustrophobia in a way i've never experienced before. Usually the ocean feels open and liberating to me, but tonight i get the sense that it's a blockade, a wall, or maybe even a facade--in any case, i feel a little trapped by the black nothing (it is evening, so there is no differentiation between sky, water, or shore. At some point, i see a huge light drop straight into the sea. probably a shooting star crossing the horizon downward--but it could also be a meteor crashing into the ocean 1000 miles out, with the killer tsunami to follow suit. we sit and watch a bright flickering light on the horizon for awhile, imagining that it's the hawaiian islands on fire in the radio///Satanic Church Radio 04.07.08

Got a new headshell on my turntable that fixes all the vinyl problems!! Now gotta figure out why youtube won't cooperate. Karla LaVey and special guest Zarem Bunndel this time with the best SCR programme yet. John Barry/ Drobomatic/Fat Worm sequence is especially tasty. The final ugly from Ozma Dawn====. Butbutbut, the Bermudas doing Donny on 45 = favorite girl-band-tween-the-legs-stew i've heard in ages--just listen to the backing vocals.
