The Pure Products of America Go Crazy

Dec 08, 2013

Pretty killing show this week if you ask me. A lot of slow tunes, but the good kind of slow not the boring kind of slow. We started off with a set of Happy Apple tunes in tribute to their Artists Quarter gig, which I had the great honor to attend. There was an incredible vibe in the room, with every inch of floor filled with standing Happy Apple heads. It was beautiful to see the Artists Quarter that full of energy and excitement one last time. We heard a killer version of "Priest Porky's Mass" recorded at the Artists Quarter in February 2000. We also heard three recordings from an excellent new compilation of British avant jazz called Just Not Cricket! recorded at HBC in Berlin in 2011. Had a couple of vocal samples in the show: dadaist photographer Man Ray talking about "the object" and Richard Harris reading from Khalil Gibran's The Prophet (which was played with a tiny bit of irony I won't lie [just saying, The Prophet is the type of book that seems really really profound in 9th grade]). I should be getting some streaming audio of last week's in-studio with George Cartwright, Paul Metzger, Andrew Broder, and Tim Glenn at some point if you're interested in that type of thing.
