Feeling left out?

Father’s Day is not for moms and kiddies, so if you’re feeling left out– or if you’re just a weirdo single loner lurking in a dank basement surrounded by pristine vinyl and John Cage fanfic like every other person reading this blog– then I have a surprise giftie for you!

Yes, it’s new downloads! And neglected downloads! It’s like a one-two punch of curiosity and guilt. Enjoy!

It’s Too Damn Early, full show for 5/31/08

It’s Too Damn Early, full show for 5/24/08 (here’s a link to the original commentary)

It’s Too Damn Early, April Fool’s broadcast 4/1/06 (Be the first to download it!)

It’s Too Damn Early, full show for 3/11/06 (Just think– you might need this someday.)

It’s Too Damn Early, ALL-NOISE broadcast 12/16/06 (You know you want it!)

The playlists (and original commentaries!) for these shows follow the jump:

This show was a lot of fun, and went very well. For the past few weeks, I had been feeling like broadcasting a large noise set, which I finally got around to this week. I was pleased to be able to play a varied set, from the noiser end of electroacoustic tape work to the harsher side of drone. Making their It’s Too Damn Early “debut” this week were Alien Death Form of ROIL NOISE, the circuit bending maestro XDUGEF, and Quetzocoatl of HAUNTED TRAIL. I also aired a few rarities (at least for my broadcasts)… artists Mnem, Knurl, Membranoids, and Komafuzz (who recently unsubscribed from this fine list). Next week, I will be continuing the noise with more Aghori Cup, Christine 23 Onna, Naturaliste, and DJ Smallcock. I also have a few things lined up that are really exciting– a glitch ballet, some fantastic free improv work, and some of China’s best sound artists.

This week’s show went very well. I attempted to follow another theme, “Sounds Dreaming,” a phrase which had been running through my head for some time now. Internally, I had conceived of this as being related to the mysterious give-and-take process of music making, where sometimes sounds seem to be somewhat more in control than composers or musicians. “Sounds Dreaming” also makes me consider what sort of music that sounds themselves like to create, and what sound is like when we are not around to perceive it. More than once, the sounds got the upper hand of this broadcast, but always with enlightening results. I hope you enjoyed it as well.

Sorry for the delay on this playlist. At the time of broadcast, I wasn’t able to keep a playlist, so I have had to recreate it by memory. As for the show, it was a real trip. When I got to the studio, I found that all our equipment had been replaced with backup equipment. These are the CD players, etc, that are used when something breaks. Ironically, they are probably the most broken of all units at the station. Because we have been in the process of rebuilding our main studio (which I will be broadcasting from on my next show!) all our good, working stuff was in THERE. So I got stuck with players not recognizing discs, not letting you have your disc back, eating your CDR, shocking me, turning off, and everything else. Needless to say, I wasn’t a happy camper. So I decided to go ahead and just cut loose. I already knew I’d be doing something different for April Fool’s Day anyhow, though I had intended a broadcast of the most audacious and “avant” tracks I could muster. Instead, listeners were treated to an outrageous medley of noises and blends. I also managed to work in a couple local radio station’s streaming broadcasts, and my various threats about throwing the CD players out the front foor. All in all, a great and chaotic show! Please realize not all songs were played in their entirety, or were heavily mixed with other songs.
