We Move Like Children Think Sometimes: Transmission 305, 2016 October 12

SKY_H1_MOTION.jpg Hhhhokay, I am trying to rebuild this habit of posting, semi-regularly. With luck, this will be two shows posted since my last program. This pace would allow us to catch up...sometime later, maybe in the spring. I am doing my best, honestly. You do have other stuff to listen to, yes? I am thinking you do.

Listening back to this episode, I don't have many "deep thoughts" about what happened. Indeed, what *did* happen? Sounds like the usual, e.g. nothing much. But what a good program this is! I have actually been making some fine radio in this otherwise silent time. "Dark and sad" is the phrase that comes to mind about this program, but you will probably find that not to be the case all the way through.

Tight As Slow Motion But Crazed With Devotion: Transmission 304, 2016 October 5

sherlock_holmes.jpg How...how have you been? Much has happened since we last "spoke." There's been a coup, apparently; you've probably heard about that. I've been up and I've been down; I'm supposed to go back "up" on the advice of my counselor and nurse; maybe this means more posting? We'll have to see. Anyway, here is a program, from a different time and universe.

Perhaps the most surprising inclusion in this night's program is the Vakula tune--and it is a tune. Proficiency! Such a rare thing in my life. So refreshing to hear what sounds like a decent guitar decently played through a decent amp. Personally I am too obsessed with texture to actually get good at playing, so mired am I in the search for the holy grail(s) of "good sound." Steve Albini calls such people "tone lawyers." I confess that I am one. More like "tone support staff," driving to work in a Honda CRV instead of a Benz, but you get the idea. I recall friend of Bombast / former bandmate Mr. D saying to me once, "you always seemed to view the guitar less as an instrument than as something to make noise with." It was true! Now that I know a few technical facts I can amend this to say, "not so much an instrument as a source of voltage."

This night continues an extended flirtation with compilations from "The Blog That Celebrates Itself." I don't know what to tell you--I am a sucker for a) compilation albums b) cover versions and c) free stuff. Oh, and also d) "shoegaze," whatever that is--strangely it does not exhibit much interest in tone-lawyering. Why I find this noteworthy I'm not sure. I probably still carry the sense memory of fearing the suspicion of the program directors at my old station: "you seem only to play stuff from four different labels." I'm not even sure anyone ever said this! (Though it would not have been unfair). Thinking makes the world.
