My Castle of Quiet on WFMU more than any other individual (in addition to appearances on other shows with other projects.) A founding member of the No-Neck Blues Band, Pat has shown Castle listeners his versatility as an improvisor with K-Salvatore, his outstanding solo project, Decimus, in addition / contrast to the passionate fire of the black metal band Malkuth. We're excited to welcome Pat back, this time in the superb duo with guitarist / improvisor Tom Carter, of the legendary and much-loved Charalambides. Together, Murano and Carter shape the sonic space like painters, with the introspection / complexity of Mark Rothko, and the spontaneity and passion of Jackson Pollock. These are eerie, contemplative, psychedelic sound-works of the very highest order, a perfect fit for MCoQ's "lighter" side; music to lie on the roof to, looking upward, contemplating the cosmos.
Stan Reed's Dried Up Corpse is a bird of another sonic feather, peering downwards, with rotted wings, encircling a mass grave. Stan is a founding member of Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, a My Castle of Quiet and WFMU favorite / staple, a harsh-sound project of many years standing and global reputation. Stan and BSBC are unquestionably this generation's New Blockaders, abrasive-yet-soul-infused, achingly human; if Murano and Carter recall Rothko, then Dried Up Corpse, Stan's breakaway solo project from BSBC, is Rothko's blackest canvases, the ones you could stare at for hours and always see something new at every glance. Through a series of tape, CDr and vinyl releases, Dried Up Corpse has been established as a major force, and a unique shade of "dark" removed from the mother project. WFMU catches up with Dried Up Corpse, while in town to play the massive Ende Tymes Festival of Noise and Experimental Liberation, which WFMU's experimental-music-listener fans are strongly urged to attend, with many great performers performing!
