facebook ad that showed up in my feed suggesting i apply for a job at the place i have worked for over three years now
Genesis and Paula P.Orridge at the Spahn Ranch
is paula like twelve years old here or what? i’ve always wondered.
Now that i can watch CAN TV again i hope fred airs a lot more old reruns* like this that i haven’t seen before!
oh it’s been waaay too long
*or episodes recycled into ‘new’ ones
halfway upset and halfway really excited to find out this record was so good
why didn’t anyone ever fucking tell me??
ok last one for now i think. this band is great.
we hung out with them all of the time for about half a year and they are also VERY FUN PEOPLE.
Here is part of the second set cheer-accident did at experimental sound studios last summer. i was listening to it on headphones not too long ago and i noticed a weird buzzing - i thought “this is strange… the recordings were by a plce full of recording equipment that has sound studios in their title, why would they release this recording with all of this fuzz on the track, and why is it there to being with?
then i remembered:
CICADAS. there must have been dozens of them somewhere near by. they must have been reacting to the vibrations of the loud music. so when the song hits a quiet spot and there is a constant buzz that shouldn’t be in the track, it was the addition of the cicada swarm. and to the credit of ESS, whether they worked on it or not, the cicadas were MUCH MUCH louder in person. for a minute i was trying to figure out if it was some kind of addition c-a added as a goof, if it wwas some kind of put on. but nah. just nature!
also on the ESS soundcloud there is a full set of an improvisation they did indoors about an hour before doing a full outdoor set, and another chunk of this outdoor set that is three or four songs on one track
Here’s a video of us from the other night at Township performing Corpse Thighs and Glistening Vivid Splash.
