Alfredo92 really shows us the depth of his collection. new age, ambient, horror themes, reggae and punk rock. one hour of madness.
Track-by-track commentary by the selecter:
1. Bob and Ron Copper - Good ale
I was dead hungover when this mix was recorded and thought it would be a great ideato start out with this ode to beer drinking. The whole album is lovely and touches many nice topics such as hard labour and sex.
2. Woo - The Frogs Fandango
Beautiful ambient/New age music recorded by two brothers in their home between 1975 and 1983… quite hard to believe.
3. Poland P Young - Curls
From one of his more recent albums where he is softend out a bit.
4. Musica Elettronica Viva – cosmic communication
Spaced out italian improvisation from the seventies
5. Ruth White - The Cat
Some of the most scary music i have ever heard! I think the way the synthesizers emulate a cat is quite fantastic on this one.
6. Midnight episode - Marigold
Seriously overlooked album based around samples from old english horror movies.
7. Trevor wishart - Imago
Now it gets even scarier. 25 minute piece built around a single sample of two whiskey glasses clinking. There is a nice video on youtube where he plays the piece in a total dark confrence hall and talks about the beauty of the piece, it is mind bending and scary as hell.
8. Mark Nauseef - Quilts (A Patchwork Dance)
A super drummer who's been collaborating with names such as Thin Lizzy and the velvet underground takes a break and explores the world of gamelan music.
9. Shango Sacrificial Ritual
A recording of a voodoo ritual from Trinidad.
10. Burundi - Musiques Traditionnelles - Chant Avec Cithare
Traditional music of Burundi. I do not know a lot about this record as I can’t really read french, but an incredible voice though.
11. Leroy Wallace – Far beyond
One of my favorite pieces of reggae music. Totally out of tune melodica, and casual talking about belonging to Ethiopia. What more do you want?
12. Diggory Kenrick & Tapes – Pipe Cleaner
One of my favorite pieces of contemporary reggae music! Really heavy and almost depressed vibes on this one. The b side i called ”This Weeds Making Me Nervous” and sums it up pretty good
13. Thomas Leer – Gulf stream
A Scottish musician who is really underrated in my opinion! This one is a bit dubbed out but check hits such as ”Private Plane” and ”Don’t”
14. Petr Skoumal - Jeden Můj Známej
Weird Czech Jungle/Tv-show music. Found on Youtube - bought on record.
15. Japir Folk Group – Dance Music
This was actually not meant to be played in the mix butthe ecstatic vibe of Petr Skoumal made me panic and this got tugged in. Anyway it's a nice recording of drumming from India.
16. The Leather Nun – Slow Death
A song about being fried to death in 55 hours by a Swedish Goth rock/industrial band. This song is from their debut album which is by far their best album in my opinion. On the b side of this record there is a live version with Genesis P-Orridge on violin!
17. GG Allin – Snakemans Dance
The real king of Rock’n’roll! Live fast die!
18. Aaron Dilloway-Shatter all organized activities (Eat the rich)
This Track is from one of my favorite noize albums! The long and repetitive patterns takes you in a state of trance which goes into the sound of dying animals? and then all of a sudden he switches everything up into a noize inferno, the first time i heard this i was in total shock. I skipped the repetitive part and only played the ”dying” and the Noize part.
19. L.O.T.I.O.N. - Vid The Pigs
Great punk band from New York. ”Technology is a weapon use it or be abused by it”
