Description

This week's episode is very special (and not in the 80s/90s "dedicated to a 'serious' issue like stranger danger" sort of sense) as for the first time, I am joined by a guest: my brother, who I have frequently referenced on the show, often as the coiner of the phrase "looooong psychedelic jams" to describe my taste in music. We get into the etymology of that expression (which, as it turns out, may have been originated by me) as well as a few other subjects during the first episode break.

As for the music, we have some shoegaze-influenced psych-pop from Beaches, some drum-heavy drone from Ninos Du Brasil (whose recent album, Vida Eterna, is worth seeking out if only for its amazing cover art - a nightmare-inducing painting of a fruit bat) and several "trax" from Trax Test (Excerpts From The Modular Network 1981-1987) a compilation of songs released by the Italian new wave/minimal-synth label Trax (which has no affiliation with the Chicago house music label of the same name).

Later on in the show we hear from Facteur Cheval, a French group who seem to be challenging the British monopoly on The Fall-inspired bands that feature a guy drolly ranting over avant-garde noodling, and we end with the, uh, chemically named, 5-Methoxy-N,N-Dimethyl: (5-MeO-DMT) from the recently reissued on vinyl (even though the original was released on CD, and presumably recorded on digital equipment, an issue I get into) Time Machines by Coil.
