FFFoxy Podcast #63

FullSizeRender (1)

I know I say this probably far too often, but I was really excited to share this bunch of mostly new sounds with you on this installment of the FFFoxy Podcast. I guess when that excitement starts to wane, I know it’ll be my time to walk away from all of this, but I don’t see that happening any time soon. There is simply too much great material coming out right now to be enthusiastic about. As our friend and ally Bill Shute of Kendra Steiner Editions has recently written: “We are living in a Golden Age in all the arts, but especially in the world of Experimental Music.” I think this episode gets to the heart of that with terrific new works from Sean McCann, Benjamin Finger, Pedestrian Deposit, German Army, Nick Forté, Lisa Cameron & Ernesto Diaz-Infante and on and on. I also tried to sprinkle in some older things that I’ve been playing around the house of late that are maybe tangentially connected to some of this newer material. Hopefully it’ll make sense if you can make it through the early morning, under-caffeinated ramblings of your scatterbrained host. At any rate, I hope you enjoy this episode. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments.

*Correction: It was noted during the show that Vibing Up The Senile Man was at least partially recorded at Throbbing Gristle’s practice space. While Alternative TV did practice and record some early sessions at TG’s space, Vibing Up The Senile Man was, however, recorded at Pathway Sound Studios in Oct./Nov. of 1978. Genesis P-Orridge contributes percussion to three tracks on the album, though, including “Graves Of Deluxe Green”.
