A Thick Mist (March 22, 2017)


 
With Jon Mueller’s permission, I played one of the side-long pieces from his new record, dHrAaNwDn. This is probably the first and maybe only place you can hear this digitally. Also, that BSBC locked groove plus Ciardi reading Dante’s Inferno is just too fucking much. And can someone tell me why Otesanek isn’t everyone’s favorite metal band?

Some great mixing in this one, especially Michael Idehall & FRKSE and The Wild Bull with The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner. Also, very excited about the funerary violin record. Just picked it up this past weekend and haven’t had a chance to listen to it all yet but goddamn it’s so cool.

A Thick Mist (February 22, 2017)


 
I started the show off with a record that’s had a huge influence on me, especially in how I curate A Thick Mist, it’s a sound collage full of religious weirdness, death, obscured field recordings, and strange electronics. Very psyched to finally own a vinyl copy of that. But more importantly, I fucking love Joseph Spence so much, that dude’s music is pure unbridled joy.

Got lots of cool mixing going on in this episode, I’m especially into Ghosh’s flute raag underneath Robert Chaney talking about the supernatural, and I put that Ariel Guzik record on, without ever hearing it, alongside “In Heaven” from Eraserhead and it worked so well I think David Lynch himself would approve.

Wish that Edward Teller record didn’t sound like total ass. I’ll have to give it a good cleaning sometime. At least the Khan/Basinski mix sounded fantastic and I can’t wait to play the B side of The Hooked Generation where Dr. Impe talks about what’s wrong with sex, cursing, and horror themes in movies, what’s wrong with rock music, and if there’s proof that Communism had a part in the development of folk and rock music to destroy the morals of the Western World. The A side (the side that I played alongside Sunn O))) & Boris) talked about how the Bible mentions drugs and if drug users go to heaven.

A Thick Mist (February 8, 2017) – Black History Special


 
Music by black Americans (as far as I know). Not much in the way of spoken word stuff aside from Malcolm X’s speeches. Also: very little experimental music. The only artist in my vinyl collection who I knew wasn’t a white dude was Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, which was really disheartening to realize. Still covered a lot more ground than I typically do, with funk, jazz, electric Chicago blues, and vaudeville blues in addition to the usual country blues and gospel.

A couple of mistakes I feel the need to note: I gave the wrong name of the artist for “Time Is On Our Side” and thought Revelation Funk was part of the song title instead of one of the artists involved, and I said the boys from Street And Gangland Rhythms were homeless but they actually lived in public housing.

And apparently today is Bessie Jones‘ birthday (2/8/1902-7/17/1984). Alan Lomax called her “the Mother Courage of American Black traditions.” Happy birthday, Bessie. Thanks for your amazing music.

Goddamn this is a pretty sweet episode if I do say so myself. Slowing the Jane Heidorn dirge from 45 down to 33 was unexpectedly awesome, using the “create destruction” locked groove from Unholy Triforce’s new laserdisc to back Elijah Muhammad’s proselytizing about Judgement Day was too perfect, and smashing Phill Niblock with Fell Voices made the intense intenser.

I fuckin love that Hollerin’ record, such a weird one, and it went pretty well with Lowe’s drones. And just fyi, both Holly Hunt and Obolus were played at 33 instead of 45, so Holly Hunt got really fuckin sludgy and I might even prefer Obolus slowed down, or at least that song.

And I need to take every chance I get to share this Charlotte Daniels & Pat Webb record. It’s one of my all-time favorites. And this post where I made it available for people to download has become a home to conversation between Charlotte’s & Pat’s friends & family, sharing personal memories, including a comment from their niece to let everyone know Pat had just died. It’s my favorite thing on the internet and is exactly the sort of thing the internet is perfect for.

Not too much experimentation this time. And once again, the recording starts late. I hit the record button on time this time, but I forgot you need to hit it twice so you come in towards the end of the first song I played (Surachai). That happens way too much and it pisses me off to no end, I just hope it doesn’t make you even half as mad it makes me.

A Thick Mist (January 4, 2017)


 

Some of the mashups worked amazingly, like Lakshmi Shankar & the Bowles/Verrastro duo (which starts off so seamlessly I actually can’t determine when it started, somewhere around the 20 minute mark). Some fell a little flat, like Mick Barr and the Venezuelan folk music. It was all fun, though. Also, for some reason I was getting the song info for Lluvia off of Discogs and I was looking at a different record online than the one I was actually playing, so I say that I played “La Oscuridad Doth Dar La Inmortalidad” from Premonicion De Guerra but I wasn’t even playing that record. Oops. Chalk it up to me not knowing Spanish and that the info for Eternidad Solemne is all on the inner sleeve instead of the jacket which I didn’t have readily at hand.

A Thick Mist (December 21, 2016) – Holiday Special featuring Numero Group


 

I decided to pull all of my A Thick Mist-relevant Christmas records for this episode (which is only 5 but they’re all pretty great) as well as my entire Numero Group collection (which I only got to play half of but oh well, I’ll save em for another day). All in all, there’s only 3 non-Christmas or non-Numero songs and everything turned out just swell.

No A Thick Mist episode next week because the university is closed but I should return the first week of January.

Also, I mention it right off the bat on air, but just fyi, this is a short episode because the building the radio station is in didn’t open when it was supposed to and my secret back door that’s usually open wasn’t so I started about a half hour late. Blame Facilities.

Particularly into the Man Forever track alongside the record of an angry, barking German Shepard. And I just realized I played two religious pieces (Reverend Franklin’s sermon and a Buddhist monk invocation) on top of minimal drone (Celer and Chubby Wolf, respectively). In a mood this morning, I guess?

Once again, I forgot to record the very beginning of the show. I remembered as soon as I finished talking, so that’s all you miss–my introductions. You don’t miss anything from the first song I played.

A Thick Mist (November 30, 2016)

Got kinda crazy with this one. Started out with the Sutekh Hexen & Trepaneringsritualen collaboration alongside a Day Of Atonement prayer recorded in Moscow’s Central Synagogue in 1956. Then there was the black metal/black spirituals of Zeal & Ardor slowed down from 45 to 33 played underneath Balachander’s extended veena session. And don’t forget the attempted hypnosis on top of Black Boned Angel at the end. Had a lot of fun this time.

A Thick Mist – Supporting Standing Rock (November 23, 2016)

Lots of cool layering in this one, especially towards the end. I’m not totally sure when I started playing that Lussuria record because I put it on while Jean Michel Jarre was still playing and the mix was pretty smooth, so the timestamp is for when I stopped playing Oxygène and it was just Ghost Entanglement with whatever other samples I had going. Also, sorry, I forgot to start recording the show until after I had already gotten into the second song. There’s a lot of coordination that goes into getting the show started, and hitting the record button has yet to make it into my routine. So, again, I’m sorry.

I decided to pull all of my Native American LPs (except for the Chippewa Grass Dance Songs one because I just played that a couple weeks ago) in honor of the protests going down at Standing Rock (and also because tomorrow is Thanksgiving, but Standing Rock’s mission is a little more important than our bogus holiday). Instead of the usual pre-approved PSAs that WMWM has me choose from, I decided to talk a bit about the Dakota Access Pipeline bullshit (in a non-commercial radio-friendly way) and mentioned things you could do to help out if you feel so moved. I recommend checking out Stand With Standing Rock for more info, including details on non-financial ways to support their cause, and the official Crowdrise campaign for Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Against DAPL. It’s not too late. While the U.N. has denounced the treatment of the protesters as inhuman and degrading, our federal government has yet to acknowledge Standing Rock’s cause nor the physical brutality they’re facing for their peaceful protesting. Standing Rock still needs your help.

WMWM is finally improving their streaming services, which means I need to add timestamps for my show, so you get them too! When there’s no timestamp, it usually means it got played at the same time as the previous song.

A Thick Mist – Mourning (November 9, 2016)

Not an eclectic episode this time. All metal.

I forgot to start recording the show until just after I started playing the first song, but the only thing you miss is me talking about how miserable and exhausted I was. The recording sounds much better this time. My vocals were still a little low so I did some post-processing to compensate.
