STILL IN CONTROL of the Bombastic web archive, it is I, Guy LeBatard, whether you like it or not. If not, make your own adventures. This broadcast did happen on a "dark afternoon"--sadly my appointed time of day was becoming brighter and brighter, and my brief season of transmitting was nearing its end. But this is a good program, suitable for whatever! Vertical, orizzontal, diagonal, your activities may vary. A technical note: I didn't know and couldn't decide how to pronounce Ryan Crosson's name, but on reflection I do prefer "croissant." Ryan--I do not love you because you are tasty; you are tasty because I love you. Think on this.

U_D_M playlist, 2017 February 12, 1700-1800:

  1. "Bambi Hands" | Ryan Crosson | MDRNTY001 | MDRNTY
  2. "I Don't Want To Watch You Read - The Golden Filter Remix" | Marc Houle | Silver Siding EP | Innervisions
  3. "Orizzonte" | Luca Ballerini | Dots & Pearls 3 | Coccon
  4. "Abstract of Expression" | The Durutti Column | Fidelity | Les Disques du Crepuscule

YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE at a post by Guy LeBatard, accompanying another sonic adventure in mindless hedonism. "This unfolds" now, wherever you happen to be, but its "original" airing, if it was not always already happening somewhere in block time, was on the day of The Big Football Game. Not that the association means anything, but "real" time listeners got a taste of the violence of spectacle prior to the spectacle of violence, if in fact there is a relevant difference.

Bring on the rotary cocktails and permanent vacations!

From the end of the world--do we dare to dream?--it is Guy LeBatard, bringing you another hour of my "less easily decipherable than I thought" program. Since all culture is simultaneous now I won't bother with telling you what "was" happening when I spun these tunes, but I can assure you that this abdication is NOT because I don't "remember." What is happening NOW is what matters, if anything does. <RON HOWARD NARRATOR VOICE: "It doesn't."

Bonjour! Guy LeBatard, checking in with another program from the "distant" past. The pipeline is drying up. We are nearing the end. But here is an hour's worth of good "entertainment," or whatever. Were I the type to write long treatises--I never "showed much promise," or so they told me--I would figure out whether I find it more distasteful that music is made to be used as a backdrop for some other activity or that some musicians insist that you give their product your full attention.

It is a good thing that I am not that type!

Anyway, kid catharsis tells me that this was a very satisfying listen while he was punishing himself on the arc-trainer, so I suppose we are to trust him?

U_D_M playlist, 2017 January 8, 1700-1800:

Guy LeBatard here, wishing you the best of luck in 2017. I was spending the holidays "down south," with the Catharsis family. Some of "kid's" clumsiness must have rubbed off on me. This is a clumsy hour and a dreaded symmetrical selection. Plus, I played the same Carl Craig tune for the second program in a row. "Honor thy error as a hidden intention?" Get stuffed, Brian Eno, and go back to making music for shopping malls or whatever it is you do.

Happy holidays, from Guy LeBatard! No doubt, the more pedantic among you will point out that it is currently August, but time means nothing to me. Please find attached a program that I did...sometime. It strikes me, in retrospect, as rather pleasing. Though I sound a bit down "on tape," I was delivering appropriate mindlessness for the listening area, and beyond.

I am discovering that a trait I share with kid catharsis, who "hosts" this archive, is a desire for shallowness of affect above all things. Is it standing in for authenticity, humility, lack of commercial appeal? This could certainly be. Words, effort, "balls-out" commitment--I don't know what to do with these, in all honesty. I prefer states of being, undisturbed. A death wish? That's for someone else to figure out, in their free time.

U_D_M playlist, 2016 December 18, 1700-1800:

  1. "Timebomb - VIP Mix" | John Tejada | Timebomb | Palette

Punching in once again, I am Guy LeBatard. Being a "radio regular," and chronicling that regularity, made me a little bit sick, looking back. And we shouldn't look back anyway. So I did not, but at the moment I am feeling dragged back into responsibility by forces I do not understand. It seems I can only quet them by pressing onward.

What sort of spectacular fascination you might craft from this hour of radio escapes me, but what's new? I find the content here a bit more "organic" than usual, without the segues necessarily being that way. Conscious resistance? Sure, we can call it that. Words don't mean anything anymore.

Occasionally Lucid Commentary: Transmission 359, 2017 July 26

basic_rhythm_the_basics.jpg Currently having a lot of thoughts about time. This is the final broadcast before the Catharsis Family goes on vacation. We haven't done this in FIVE YEARS. Much has changed since then. BOMBAST was not a thing in summer 2012--for that matter, WRFI was barely a thing. I was a "gentleman of leisure" at the time--I guess that's called "taking a gap year" now, though mine was more than a year. I almost went feral. I would have been happy to stay in the wilds of California and never return to society.

ANYWAY.

Listening back to this program was strangely dissociative (dissociating?). Though it is SO RECENT (we're all caught up, for a fleeting moment) I seem to remember none of it. What was I doing at the time? How had I chanced upon these tunes? While I'm doing my own (poor) David Byrne imitation, I'm going to find an arbitrary, unrelated hill that I'm willing to die on--"The Overload" sounds more like Joy Division, in style and substance (even though reportedly the band had only heard about JD) than 90% of "postpunk" strivers. Read someone dissing this track yesterday and I just won't have it.

ANYWAY.

Things get rough toward the end, or perhaps just lazy, but it's all good.

See you August 16.

dirk_von_lowtzow_plays_pet_shop_boys.jpg Welcome to Installment Four of the Junior Experiment. It occurs to me that we had a short-lived feature once (I think it was literally once) which we called "Junior Selector," in which some tune that struck Junior's fancy at the moment made it to air in the same way "Listening Parlour" tunes do. IIRC it was "Kether Hot Knives" by A Certain Ratio, of all things. What taste! And where did it go?

I should not waste too much time lamenting, because on this occasion she brings in "a Stones record we both agree on" (there are only a few!). She gets nervous when I remind her that her promise that the tunes are suitable for daytime airplay will only bring us more scrutiny, but not nervous enough to opine quite candidly on the subject of "You Can't Always Get What You Want." I have changed my mind about something I said during the program. I hope that Mick and Keef ARE listening, and, gents, I hope you drop my daughter a note--she would love that.

jazz_butcher_-_big_questions_front900.jpg I wonder what my opinion of this program was on the night. It couldn't have been as favorable as it is right now, because upon playback it is AWESOME. But then, it is ten days later--#theorycamp is ended, my mind is finally clearing, and my own greatness is revealed to me at last. Do you want excellence in content and technique? It is all here.

Sadly I do not own this Jazz Butcher compilation on vinyl--if I recall correctly, Friend of Bombast Jeremy does, or did once. I forget whether his copy came with the elusive 7" whose contents did not make it onto this cd (but did land on one of the other umpteen Jazz Butcher anthologies, and on iTunes, so they would not be "Physical Evidence" anyway, I guess). ANYWAY, this release and I go way back. I could probably have done with a similar degree of familiarity with Those Who Walk Away, probably playing that tune because I liked its ambience but finding myself totally unnerved by the "content" and needing to read PSAs over it.

I also have some opinions on record titles. "Oriental Special" is, I'm sure, meant to be ironic, but it's 2017 and that doesn't work. Also, "Madonnawhore?" I will take any random Shit and Shine title over that, seven days a week.
