Banned Rehearsal 565 - Banned Rehearsal

A rope of guitar sound accumulates barnacles and algae. We pull to drag from the depths a great dripping roar of sound murky with life forms || then build centering on the elephant guiro (a corrugated plastic drain pipe) || the clinks clacks and clangs a rolling steel minimarble.

Downtime - Benjamin Boretz

Moments last until they become their own moment. A moment of such moments.

Banned Rehearsal 773 - Banned Rehearsal

Neal riffs on Blake, arousing variants of affective disjuncture.

Frank Du Pree - Jenkins - Blind Andy

An abstract setting in that it does not paint the words, only allows them.

Thou Carest Lord, For Me - Holy Ghost Sanctified Singers

Not about the music - about the joy of it. Jug band.

Frisky Honey - J. H. Bragg and His Rhythm Five
I'd Be Lost Without You - Helen Forrest

A come-on, but not precisely sultry, something else more complete.

Good For Nothin' Joe - Kay Starr

A complaint that aint'.

Short Wave - Maynard Ferguson

crazy slippery trumpet.

Ulysses at the Edge - Harry Partch

Partch works even when it shouldn't. No matter how prosaic the compositional accumulation of rhythm, nor how flat the affect, the visceral theater blasts through.

Ubi caritas - Durufle - Tirnavia/Anrej Rapant

Play Guitar & Play Guitar 2 - The Ventures

Wach - Stockhausen

This plays out as an essay on distance and presence, unashamedly bleepblooping.

Sonata 1980 - Keith Eisenbrey - Keith Eisenbrey

My live recording from May of 1981, at the Meany Studio Theater. The tape deteriorated some before I could rip it, but you can still hear the door opening for the guy who walked out on me.

12-inch Single (1985) - The Ramones

Ripped from a tape dubbed from vinyl, so the sound isn't great. Bonzo Goes to Bitburg is available on-line, but I couldn't find the other two songs - Go Home Ann, or Daytime Dilemma (Dangers of Love).
