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

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).
