The Eclipse of Planet Xeron w/ Xeres Furd of The Giant Worm! (#65)

The Eclipse of Planet Xeron w/ Xeres Furd of The Giant Worm! (#65)

There are so many people in Oregon who have been woodshedding for years that I could spend the rest of my days just inviting them on the show to hang out and play their music.  But in Xeres’ case, he has been at it for nearly 40 years, producing music that is clearly from the planet Xeron, and this show is just the tip of the ice-planet-berg.

Join us, for this two hour exploration of Xeres’ career.  We barely scratch the surface of his career with The Giant Worm, where he is the junior member at only having been involved with them for 30 of their 40 year career.  But we do get to present a new Giant Worm track, and play nearly two hours of previously unreleased work created by Xeres himself.  Essentially, only a couple of tracks have seen the light of day before – and even then, largely on self-distributed cassettes – but we play it all on this show, and explore what life is like on planet Xeron.

Xeres has been an archivist of music for decades, and a huge supporter of Mid-Valley Mutations almost before we were on the air, and The Giant Worm’s appearance on the program in November was a great example of who they are and what they’re up to.

But in this show, we get to rummage through four track tapes and CD-Rs of music that has not been heard anywhere else.

Get ready for… The Eclipse of Planet Xeron!

Enjoy.
