Cylinder

it was due time to stretch out the drum and the bass to around 170 bpm. let it roll, let it skitter, let it bounce, let it jitter; as we fritter away our minds on endless loops that go round and round, lifting us higher with each rotation.

luv345 Dewey Decimal Soundsytem

Dewey Decimal Soundsystem

this mixtape is made up of library records; music made by companies that mass produced sounds to pitch to movies, television and advertising studios as background or incidental music for their productions. these discs were never officially sold in shops but were sent out to folks as examples of what music was available to license for their film productions. often times these companies would hire amazing musicians / composers and give them free rein to come up with a wide variety of music to cover every emotion, situation or locale that a film might need. this gave the creators a lot of leeway with how their music could sound and in some cases very adventurous, groovy and forward thinking music was made. this mixtape is a peek into this world. remember to keep quiet and listen intently, this is a library after all.

Lost Moments In Time

a mixtape from back when we were the new young American primitives. warped junior boys having out-of-body experiences listening to celestial symphonies washed over by an analogue bubblebath. elements of tone attached to states of mind coming straight from the underworld. a d.i.y. rhythm invention ad infinitum. this was the future sound.

luv342 Inside The Alien Machine

Inside The Alien Machine

for almost 15 years now i have been designing nanobots that can record audio and video in very small places. a few months ago the Canadian government contracted me to bring my nanobot technology to a remote place in the Yukon where an alien ship had been discovered. when i arrived they took me to what they suspected was the engine of the craft. it was an odd shaped box, the size of a small suitcase, that was encased in a smooth, hard plastic. there were no lights, displays or buttons and it made no sound. the only way we knew it was was functioning is that it had an almost imperceptible vibration to the touch. it’s only discernible feature was a small port. i was instructed to send one of my nanobots into this port and to record audio and visual of the insides so they could better understand the technology. my little machine traveled for almost 38 minutes into the depths of this alien machine before it was destroyed and the transmission was lost. unfortunately something inside the machine messed with my nanobot’s video capabilities and only a few stills were recorded. luckily the entire audio was recorded and this is what i present to you here today. i was forbidden to share this information but i thought the world needed to hear it.

Rock Stars Say The Darndest Things

part of the magic of rock’n’roll is absurdity. i mean it wasn’t just the pounding drums and squealing guitars that terrified the squares. it was the loud music combined with the lunatic ravings of a madman that pushed them over the edge. in that spirit here is just over 90 minutes of crazy foolishness, preposterous nonsense and stupid silly lyrical absurdities from some bona fide rock stars. a-wop-bom-a-loo-mop-a-lomp-bom-bom!
