The show starts with some Hawkwind-esque blown-out spacerock jams from Cosmic Fall and Earthling Society, but also the dark, minimal, tropically-tinged (yeah, I know, weird) drones of the odd-yet-aptly-named Heroin in Tahiti. I have never done heroin, nor been to Tahiti, and yet, somehow, this album I think captures what it might be like to combine the two. Mostly, I congratulate them on coming up with a name that isn't merely a creative non-sequitur, a seeming rarity in recent years.
Later on in the show, I play not just one... (slight murmur)... not just two (slightly louder murmur)... but three, yes three (murmur transforms into cascade of angry shouts) from the excellent new compilation Outro Tempo: Electronic And Contemporary Music From Brazil 1978-1992 out on Music From Memory records, an excellent companion piece to last year's Soul Jazz-released compliation of electronic music from Venezuela from the same era.
The show finshes with a loooong track from Curanderos, the latest side project from Bardo Pond (of which there are a seemingly infinite number, and all of which are essentially indistinguishable from Bardo Pond itself) and Xordox, the alter-ego of J.G. Thirwell, of Foetus, but, more importantly in my mind, composer of music for the Venture Bros.
