January 29, 2014 – B-Sides

B-Side

Lacking the connections, knowledge, education and intellect of Mathieu, Brady and Alex, I am relegated to relying only on my enormous collection and impeccable taste. What follows fills in the holes in that collection, to be played on our show which slips through the gaps left in popular radio broadcasts.

Not much time for notes this week (you have better things to do than read my rambling commentary on 30 year old music), but more reviews will be arriving here at Cut And Run soon.

1 – Graham Lambkin & Jason Lescalleet – ‘If Truth Be Told’ – Photographs – United Kingdom / United States, 2013

2 – Mammane Sani – ‘Salamatu’ – Mammane Sani et son Orgue – Niger, 1973

3 – Gregory Büttner – ‘Walze 3’ – Walze 1-8 – Germany, 2008

4 – Un Département – ‘Drawing Of A Clown’ – Un Département – France, 1984

5 – Mecanica Popular – ‘Dagerrotipo’ – Baku: 1922 – Spain, 1987

6 – Ross Birdwise – ‘Lurch’ – Frame Drag – Canada, 2013

7 – A.K. Klosowski & Pyrolator – Hifidelity – Home-Taping Is Killing Music – Germany, 1985

This track only appeared on reissues dating from 1999, so I question whether its beats actually date to the mid-eighties. Let’s pretend.

8 – Spungejob Yur Mum – ‘Tack Wound Kit’ – Spungejob Yur Mum – Canada, 2013

9 – Idea Fire Company – ‘Topology For Sten’ – Unreleased – United States, 2014

Something of a eulogy for poet, performance artist, electroacoustic composer and all-around interesting Swedish guy Sten Hanson, who died in November of last year. You can find a plethora of material to listen to online at UbuWeb (yes, it still exists).

10 – Baudouin Oosterlynck – ‘Refuge’ – Baudouin Oosterlynck – Belgium, 1978
