This is not music
I can hardly see to type through filthy glasses (a summertime affliction), but I'd have to say this week's Noise Bliss-Out #6 (linked through the capture above) was an unqualified success. Why? Because not only did I fold a mere 14 selections into a three-hour program, but in addition, Unsustainable Social Condition's "Barricade Coercion" earned us the unimaginative, tried-often-but-not-true "this is not music" comment. Oh, if only I had a hundred bucks for every time a listener's limited expectations led them to say that!
Other listener comments singled out newly released 70s live Cluster | the Butthole Surfers classic "Comb" | Sewer Election | Facialmess | ...and the undeniable, early-noise obelisk The 150 Murderous Passions ...
Listeners really seem to enjoy the Noise Bliss-Outs, and well of course, I do as well; it's quality immersion, great for the head, and from my DJ's chair, it's "working smart, not hard." Below are links to every other NB-O My Castle of Quiet program thus far, for your crunchy enjoyment:
#1 (Oct. 2009)
#2 (Dec. 2009; special guest Paul Haney)
#3 (April 2015)
#4 (April 2016)
#5 (Oct. 2016)
Atop our playlist, the talented, gorgeous (and so often cast in deliciously grotesque roles) Béatrice Dalle. A bit more on the film depicted, Trouble Every Day, and the actor's outrageous personal legend, here.
Back next week with more mayhem.
Thanks for listening, enjoying, and for your robust dialogue on our playlist comments....
