Join me for a guest appearance on The Sunday Morning Hangover, hosted by The Reverend Marc Time! Woah!

Marc and I have done a few shows like this, and it’s always a lot of fun to join him. But this time, it was just the two of us, and we decided to zero in on something that is near and dear to both of our hearts: synthesizer music! We play some records, talk about our favorite acts, and then we jam out in the second hour to an ELP song!

All that, and more, in this two-hour block of radio that must be heard to be believed.

Enjoy!

Love Can’t Buy You Money (Retrocast)

Not A True Statement
Not A True Statement

Love Can’t Buy You Money (Retrocast)
(Featuring a variety of audio media centering around a bullshit capitalist symbol.  Originally aired 10 September 2010.)

(Here’s a Valentine’s Day Retrocast. Happy Holidays.)

We have to deal with it every day: the capitalist backbone of our culture. It infiltrates nearly every aspect of our lives, and is the focus of some much energy in this world that it is on par with an addiction for some. We spend our days and nights toiling in jobs just to acquire a small amount of it, and spend the rest of the time pouring it into everything that matters: family, relationships, hobbies, and most strangely, survival. We are so concerned with it as a culture that it has become one of the ultimate rock and roll cliches: Gimme Some Money.

For this show, I decided to present all media about money. Rich, poor, new and old, everything in this show centers around cash in one form or another. At first I was initially concerned with taking on this theme, as I wasn’t quite sure if I could fill up a whole show. However, when all was said and done, I had to cut quite a few tracks, and found myself considering how I can probably stretch this out to a multi-part epic. While this might be all I can handle for the time being, it was good to know that this will be an inexhaustible well for ideas.

This show has a couple of firsts working for it. This was the first show that fully utilized the new, two-hour format that will be the usual presentation for Blasphuphmus Radio from here on out. While the show has been “officially” two hours for a number of weeks now, I have been out of town for most of that time, and when I was in town, had to catch up on shows I had fallen behind on. (Hence, the five hour radio event last week, with three new shows in a row.) With all the confusion and weirdness out of the way, this was the first time I could sit down and do a two-hour show that wasn’t an exception. It was just like old times, and while I won’t be using all two hours every week (I will occasionally fill that time with retrocasts), it is fun to have that time available for my use.

It is also one of the first shows that I fully utilized the new equipment that was installed at KPSU. While many DJs are very particular about what they can and can’t use on the air, I have found myself really enjoying the new digital toys that are available to make my show with. While I will never give up using turntables, or even cassettes, it is cool to have computers, iPods, and high-tech CD players at my disposal, too. This show has brought together a number of media sources, all on the fly, to present a pretty awesome show, and I was happy to see what the new equipment can do. Hopefully this will start to make my show even better, as time goes one.

But mostly, I was happy to fit Ray Charles and The Android Sisters into the same radio show. Hell yeah.

Enjoy!

A Sadgasm New Year’s / New Tears Special! [2019 Edition] (#179)

A Sadgasm New Year’s / New Tears Special! [2019 Edition] (#179)

The only tradition we really have on this show is very simple: we invite the gentlemen of Sadgasm over to offer relationship advice. It’s a fun tradition that has led to some excellent outcomes, and with that in mind, we offer a down-home version of that same idea, Live from the Lava Lamp Lounge.

We offer an advance peek at two tracks from the upcoming Ramen 2.0 (out in February), and we talk about what the band has been up to. Then, we answer questions, and do our best to avoid turning the show into a Star Wars podcast.

Enjoy!

‘Tis The Season To Be Merry (#177)

What? It’s already the 10th? Holy crap! I’m so far behind on my shopping, and there’s still decorating to do. I don’t think the travel plans are final yet, either. Damn. Do we have the Holiday Playlist ready? Ahhhhhhh! How are we gonna finish everything in time?

Fortunately, we have a couple hours at our disposal to focus on getting ready, and today’s show is all about preparing for the holidays: getting the house ready, preparing that meal, making wreathes, and all the other things that we need to get ready for an excellent holiday season. There’s a few live mash-up mixes, a long traditional DJ set, and all sorts of Holiday Goodies that I can’t wait for you to hear!

Our next MVM is on Christmas Eve, and I’m not quite sure what we’re doing yet. I may read some holiday ghost stories… who knows?

Regardless, I’m quite proud of this one I hope you like it, too.

Enjoy!

Preparing For The Holidays (#176)

Preparing For The Holidays (#176)

It’s the week of Thanksgiving, and of course, I’m busy and hell, trying to get everything ready for the next few months. There’s tons going on, and we always feel like we’re behind. Are we ready for all of this? I hope so.

To that end: I break in the new home-studio, and play a bunch of new ./ old stuff that has been on my mind. There’s a drone mash-up, a noise mash-up, and an old-fashioned DJ set, plus all sorts of Mini-Mutations, too. It’s a fun show, and I hope you enjoy it too.

Don’t let the family get to you too much. Enjoy this podcast for a spell, and get your mind off the holiday season.

Enjoy!

The Land of The Lost (#175)

The Land of The Lost (#175)

As the season (and my own life) changes, so does Mid-Valley Mutations. It is with this program that we announce a new direction, new ideas, and a new future, while simultaneously, beginning our journey through a dark period in our annual cycle: when rain, clouds, and short days dominate our every moment.

First, the changes: Mid-Valley Mutations will now take on the form of a podcast-only show. We are leaving KMUZ on good terms; in fact, a new show hosted by me will launch on KMUZ soon. But this show is becoming different, finding a new voice, and featuring different kinds of content that need more production and looser rules than I have at KMUZ, and for the time being, the world of podcasting fits the show much better. The Lava Lamp Lounge now has a whole slew of new gear, and will be re-builidng over the winter. We hope to offer you the same show you’ve always enjoyed, but in a new home that fits us much, much better.

We are moving the show to Tuesdays as a result of the change, and we are launching Season 2 of WTBC Radio, where a lot of the live and interview content that wound up on this show will now live. These programs will alternate, every other week, with a few exceptions throughout the year, giving me a chance to breath a little, and return to work that I miss and really love. So, please, re-subscribe to WTBC, and watch for new shows there, soon.

I should mention that, while I have your attention, that if you want to make a donation to help out Heather of Juice Machine, here is the link. Juice Machine are dear friends of the show, and really could use your help. Please, donate as much as you can. Thank you.

For now, here’s a show about wallowing in the desolation that is around us, here on this planet. It would be great if travelers from a distant star could come and save us, as the rats swarm and try to destroy what is left of our world. But sadly, that is just a dream, right?

This one has a live Mini-Mutations jam at the end, so please, stay tuned for that.

Are you ready to enter the Land of The Lost?

On the 8th of November, 2019, Mid-Valley Mutations was supposed to do an over-the phone interview with The Ether Creeps, an experimental act of which your host has become a bit of a fan. But what was supposed to be a simple phone call turned into… something else.

What was aired on KMUZ that evening is what you can hear in place of this show. But what it is, and if you should listen to it, is not for me to say. Some people thing something was unleashed that evening.

The End of Fake Noose (Ghost Stories 2019 Part 5) (#173)

It’s always nice to visit with friends when you’re having a party like this, at to wrap up our Holiday broadcasts this month, we have the incomparable DJ Victrola, joining us to help clean up the studio, and catch up regrading all things spooky.

We play lots of music and stories relating to ghosts and All Soul’s Day, and we check in with her about her program, and how you can hear it now. I love spending time with DJ Victrola, and this is an excellent and casual show that was a ton of fun.

We close with the timely, “Nov. 1st,” by Crackerbash, a song I listen to every year on Nov. 1st, for as long as I’ve known about this song.

We’re getting ready for that OTHER holiday season, so stay tuned.

Enjoy!

The Last Radio Station On The Left (Ghost Stories 2019 Part 4) (#172)

The Last Radio Station On The Left (Ghost Stories 2019 Part 4) (#172)

Join us for a very cool and rare treat: a re-creation of an electronic music radio program from the late ’80s and early ’90s, which was infamous for their Halloween Shows! Brian Magill is no stranger to our show, and has been making electronic music since the early ’80’s. As part of this work, Brian eventually hosted a radio program at KLCC, Another Green World, as part of their attempt to cater to the interests of electronic music fans and artists, that was on the rise.

However, once a year – on or near Halloween – Another Green World would get… weird. Long sound collages and other forms of musique concrete would take over their broadcasts, often the last things that would air on the station before it would go off the air for the night. The show quickly became infamous, and casual listeners would think something was wrong with the radio. Instead, they were merely catching a glimpse into the musical work that Brian and his co-host, Nathan Griffith, would create, in the moment, on the air.

Tonight’s show is an effort to recreate Another Green World as best as we can, just in time for the show to offer a typical Halloween show, as you might have heard almost 30 years ago. Brian brought in records from his collection, stuff that he would have played on the show then. I actually took a step back, and let him run the board; aside from an interview setting up the concept at the beginning, this is all Brian, and you get to hear something that no one else has heard in three decades.

In Hour 1, settle in for hearing what a typical episode of Another Green World might have been like 30 years ago. Then, strap in for Hour 2, where Brian takes us on a sound collage journey through his favorite artists, and what radio used to sound like.

Along the way, we get heavy doses of Fervent Torpor, AND a number of unreleased, unavailable, and previously unheard recordings by Brian from over the years. If you ever thought to yourself, “I bet that artist has a ton of other recordings I haven’t heard yet,” This is just the tip of the iceberg. Brian could have done two hours of his own unreleased material, which would have been as good as the stuff on his record, “1000 Years of Solitude.” Instead, you get to hear it in this show, tonight.

Shows like this are something special, and you cannot (and will not) hear stuff like this anywhere else. This is a very unique Halloween Performance / Broadcast, and it’s this kind of show that makes me excited to keep bringing you radio like this.

Enjoy!

Northwest Notes (15 September 2019)

Northwest Notes (15 September 2019)

Join me for a guest appearance on Northwest Notes, hosted by Mick Hickman!

Certainly no stranger to his show, I was exited to pull out my 7″s and play a bunch of stuff that is all from the Northwest Region. Last time I tried to break the rules a little, but this time I kept my focus entirely to the area, and since I grew up in Eugene, there were a few selections that had to make their way into the playlist.

Only two of my choices were not from vinyl: a request for Snakepit, of which I do not own any original tapes or records, and our Oswald 5-0 selection, which comes from a CD that I tell a little story about.

And, if you want to make your own record and live in the Northwest, I recommend Barry here in Oregon. You can find his work at: gorbielathecuts.com. The records sound great, and Barry is a very nice guy.

This was a lot of fun, and I love hanging out with Mick. Hopefully you have a good time, too.

Enjoy!

The Sunday Morning Hangover (8 September 2019)

The Sunday Morning Hangover (8 September 2019)

Join me for a guest appearance on The Sunday Morning Hangover, hosted by The Reverend Marc Time!

Marc and I have done a few shows like this, and it’s always a lot of fun to join him. But this time, it was just the two of us, and we decided to zero in on something that is near and dear to both of our hearts: synthesizer music! We play some records, talk about our favorite acts, and then we jam out in the second hour to an ELP song!

All that, and more, in this two-hour block of radio that must be heard to be believed.

Enjoy!

Another Four Dimensional Nightmare, LIVE! (#163)

Another Four Dimensional Nightmare, LIVE! (#163)

It’s always a pleasure to have Four Dimensional Nightmare on the program. We usually don’t talk. We usually get straight to business. And while we can talk about shows and bands for hours, we are often all business, which is cool. But this time we did something new, something we’ve never done in  the almost 10+ years that we’ve known each other: this time, we played together!

Hour 1 is a long DJ set and we get things going, but in hour two, join us for a full blows Four Dimensional Nightmare, with Mini-Mutations lending support! Podcasting listeners will enjoy a rare Mini-Mutations jam that just goes on and on… as we listen to nature drone.

This one is a lot of fun. We hope you spend as much time with it as we did.

Enjoy!

Dryad Drone & Bast Awakening, LIVE! (#162)

Dryad Drone & Bast Awakening, LIVE! (#162)

This week on the program, we become both very Eugene-centric and Ellen-centric, as we feature a number of cool people and projects all born out of Eugene, OR, as well as connected to Ellen Klowden, the mastermind behind this particular broadcast. In many ways, I just came in and watched. She arranged everything, and I could certainly use more of that in my life.

We kick things off with a fantastic Set by DJ Refugium, the primary force behind the Ghost House events that happen in Eugene. Refugium provides a bit of the phenomenal decade of history of nurturing the Ghost House community, and embodies its sweet and welcoming flavor. Be sure to hop by Old Nick’s Sept 13-14 for Goth Weekend, which Refugium curates. Fri: Live performances by Xploding Boys (Cure cover band) and Devoured by Flowers. Sat: Dark Arts Market & Ghost House.

We follow that up with a full live performance by Dryad Drone, the brain-child of DJ Refugium & Ellen. Dryad Drone, as a musical entity and as a concept album, is entirely devoted to protection of forest ecosystems, which has also been lifework for both its members, Ellen via direct action and radical media, and Refugium via academic research and field work.

Then, in hour two, we offer the very first live performance by Bast Awakening, the combination of Ellen & I Died, also making his first visit to the KMUZ studios. Then, we close things out with the newly-named DEATH MUTATIONS, which, if I Died agrees, might be an entirely capitalized band name. We’re still deciding.

We conclude the program with a live set by Pavlovian Response, the combination of Ellen and Patrick Haenelt (of Ganesha Column, Electrosect, and Tubbs & Oates), recorded last week at the memorial for our fallen friend and centerpoint of experimentalia at Icky’s, the Merkin, and 7th & Washington House, Monty Ray Davis (of Neteru, Uncle Pinkeye, and Ventriloquist).

In many ways, this is a sequel to two previous episodes: our program with nOiZepHyZiX earlier in the year, with whom Ellen is in Psithurism, who will debut at a house party 9/21/19; and our program with I Died & Esperik Glare from even earlier. Sequels often make sense, as there are so many things that are not yet said; so, it was our hope that we were able to get to a little more than we did last time. Hopefully, with a little substance.

This one comes from the heart, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Making of A Nation (#161)

The Making of A Nation (#161)

Summertime seems reminiscent to me of US History. Forth of July. All that America being decided 200+ years ago in the most intense heat imaginable. And with the environment trending the way it does, our summer’s will only be worse, so we have books about history to turn to – or, in some cases, records – to help us pass the time.

“The Making of A Nation” is a record from 1963, part of a Time / Life series, and occasionally you see them in thrift stores. What I put them on, what fascinated me is that it is a Whistle-Stop tour of US History, as I remember it being taught to me in the ’80’s. I guess it isn’t surprising that this story didn’t really change for decades. Certain things do not change. But if we compare the social change that has occurred in the last 20 years – since I graduated from High School – the story of our own history is so problematic that it would not be told in this same way again.

Listening to a history lesson from almost 60 years ago is, in many ways, not surprising. But what is surprising is how fabricated it really is. The story I grew up with – one that many of us know – was carefully edited, and manipulated to present a tale that sold one idea, and oppressed many others. While my particular re-presentation doesn’t actually re-contextualize any of this – that would be a project for another day – it offers a glimpse into our racist and sexist past that, here and now, seems far closer than the 60 years by which now and then are separated.

To accompany this, I have more excellent music from the infamous “Banker’s Box.” There’s so much new stuff that this will probably be the format of the show for a while, at least until I catch up and get a few more projects off my desk.

Enjoy!

Hugo R. A. Paris & Derek Hunter Wilson, LIVE! (#160)

Hugo R. A. Paris & Derek Hunter Wilson, LIVE! (#160)

I first met Hugo a couple years ago, when he played a show at The Space to a fairly packed crowd, offering dance jams and soundscapes that really felt personal, and unique. But it’s been a while, and where he used to perform under a pseudonym – Lavender – Hugo had grown and matured with time, and as such, has embraced his own name. It only made sense that when he wanted to debut some new songs, in preparation for his upcoming tour, that we would try to get him back in at The Space, and on Mid-Valley Mutations, to show off what he’s done.

Joining him was his friend and labelmate, Derek Hunter Wilson, a pianist, composer, and performer who is often aligned with the experimental while playing some of the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever heard. He ALSO has a new album out, and both of these new albums were released TODAY, so we let Derek run wild, playing his pieces in hour two.

There’s a little of this and that filling in the spaces, and I gab away with my guests about their projects and the current state of music. But stick around until the very end, because all three of us jam together, improvising a little something new about the storm of comets that was plaguing Salem and KMUZ last night.

Three Live Performances! Interviews! Two In-Person Guests! This show has everything, and I’m very excited to bring it to you now.

Enjoy!

Obadiah & The Grumpy Punk (#159)

Obadiah & The Grumpy Punk (#159)

It is no secret that my friends and I usually get together and… listen to music. It’s a nice chance of pace from going on the radio and listening to music, or going to a show to see some live music. What I’m getting at is: would you like to listen to some music? Because we have two hours of a new show for you this week, where my friend Obadiah and I get together and enjoy some of the finer selections from our collections.

Aside from about three selections that we included in this program – and excluding the commercials and voice-overs – every bit of this program came from 7″ records. Doing a show like this is a bit of an endurance challenge; you don’t really get to take a break, and the whole show is spent on your feet, flipping records and cueing up the next thing. No time to chat. No time to check if you have the speed set right. No time to get everything set at the right level. These are loud and fast rock and roll records, and we need to go go go!

Technical issues aside, we blast through a massive slice of our record collections, bringing you choice records with our favorite tunes. The weather computer chimes in a few times with notes about his taste, and on the whole, we have an excellent time.

You don’t really get to know either of us outside of our selections during this show. We talk a little, but we usually just get to the next song. This is about rocking out, and hopefully it comes through. Who says you have to be overly strange in everything you do? There’s plenty of strange lyrics and odd bits and bobs as we wend are way through the vinyl stacks.

Hopefully you find the path we took pretty excellent,, too.

Enjoy!

100% Safe Sleep (#158)

100% Safe Sleep (#158)

Having trouble sleeping? Are the other brands just not working out for you? Certainly, you have tried everything. What else could possibly do the trick?

We suggest taking two hours of Mid-Valley Mutations, the new sleep companion that follows your sleep patters throughout the night. We help you drift off initially… doze temporarily… then wake up suddenly with no hope of falling back again for hours at a time. An then… maybe… a glimmer of hope…

All the while, I mine my Banker’s Box of “new material” I’ve been getting, from bands and friends and salvaged from my own collection, hoping to find that perfect tape that will just… help us get… some… sleep.

Just keep taking these pills, all night if you have to, for 100% Safe Sleep, with Mid-Valley Mutations. The safe alternative to natural, restful sleep.

Enjoy!

Le Petit Sac, LIVE! (#155)

Le Petit Sac, LIVE! (#155)

It’s been 21 years since I started in radio, this might be the strangest night I have ever participated in. After a tremendous amount of negotiating with Sweatband Records, which now mostly covers what I can’t say in exchange for some of their product, this podcast and video — in this highly edited and altered form — marks the only remaining document of the night Le Petit Sac visited Mid-Valley Mutations. Be thankful even this much still exists.

Here’s what I can say: after playing a show with Sac back in March (itself a very long story), I was contacted about him making an appearance on Mid-Valley Mutations. After a long negotiation period, we settled on the 29th of June. Once we settled on the date, I received a series of weird messages, trying to confirm rumors these people were hearing about the show. (These rumors revolved around he and I switching identities, that he was performing in Olympia as me, and that I wasn’t even in touch with the real Sac.) I didn’t think anything of this, and instead, prepared like I do normally.

On the night three people arrived at KMUZ: two men in suits who claimed to be representatives of Sweatband Records, and a third who was dressed as The Sac I’d come to know. Immediately I was handed this card: “DJ Embryonic Petit Sac will not talk for the first hour. He will select music for you to play. During the second hour he will take phone calls and perform some short sets. Do not talk directly to the Sac before or after the show. After the Vanity Fair fiasco, there will be no interview either. No requests. The Sac will not play anything from his records. No photography. If the Sac nods at you, you will be allowed to perform with him. Failure to comply with these rules will result in immediate legal action. No exceptions.”

The two representatives from Sweatband said very little the entire time, but did accept the complementary Red Licorice in the lobby.

While I was preparing for the show in the DJ booth, I overheard a number of phone calls that The Sac took, where he said over and over that he, “didn’t want to do this.” These calls contained a lot of profanity, and he used a voice I’ve never heard him use before.

I decided to film him anyway, in spite of the warning, and while the Sweatband representatives did nothing to stop me, afterwards they confiscated everything I brought to the radio station — CDs, gear, recordings, my phone, EVERYTHING — and held me for hours in the station lobby while the reps reviewed every inch of the footage and went over every piece of my gear. The Sac left immediately after the show, once the person at the door had been “dealt with.” (I was never told what that meant.) Finally, a lawyer arrived, and after another hour of discussions, I was allowed to leave, with my gear in hand, and was given a second angle that I was unaware of, that was very strangely edited. The video on my phone was mangled too.

I wanted to post this show immediately, as I felt like this story needed to get out. However, I was informed I couldn’t publish until my post, the audio, and the video was reviewed by Sweatband, again. I can only hope that they kept all 100,000 words of this incredible story in the final version that gets out to the world, but I’ll be happy if ANY of this show actually makes it out, period.

So, sit back, and enjoy Sweatband Records and Mid-Valley Mutations presenting: Le Petit Sac. I think?

Enjoy!

Dead Air Fresheners, LIVE! (#149)

Dead Air Fresheners, LIVE! (#149)

I first saw the Dead Air Fresheners in 2006, and since then have maintained a loose association with them, as they played on KPSU a number of times, and usually, on one of my shows, or with my engineering their sound somehow. Not only did I get to understand their particular brand of chance-determinist music, but as I got to know them better, it was only a matter of time before I started playing with them, too. (In April of 2013, to be exact, first as a featured vocalist, and then as one of those “behind the masks.”

While I was an “unofficial” member of the group for a few years (if one – even one who isn’t anonymous – can even be an official member), as time (and distance) has grown between us, I only get to meet them when we play a show together. Which, fortunately, has been more often, recently. While we had long-discussed the idea of getting them on the I-5 and on the radio here in Salem, the stars finally aligned, and it all worked out for this fantastic performance .

This show has it all. I jam away with some Mini-Mutations throughout the show, occasionally including samples of previous Dead Air releases, and other recordings, throughout. Then, the Dead Air Fresheners unleash a live jam, and a rare interview, talking about what they do, how they do it, and other bits and bobs here and there. Then, we close things out with a Mini-Dead-Air-Mutation, which was unlike almost all the other jams we’ve done before.

This was was a lot of fun, and it’s always good to see these guys in action. Now, it’s available for you, too.

Enjoy!

What’s This Called? (13 April 2019)

What’s This Called? (13 April 2019)

I’ve had a long relationship with Ricardo Wang and his program, “What’s This Called?” and it always feels good to be involved with his show. But this is the very first time that I’ve “performed” on his show like this. I mean, we did one collaboration which you can hear here, but that was well before things began to Mutate as they do these days. But playing a double-header like this – with Office Products, live on the radio – was pretty cool, and felt like a big accomplishment. Here’s the entire show, with both of our performances and other DJ bit in-between.

How cool was this?

This was a live broadcast on KFFP-FM.

Enjoy!

Tune in for a live appearance on Rich Lindsay’s “Radio Lost & Found.” There’s a live Mini-Mutations performance, some interspersed interview bits, and both The Ramen City Kid & Rich Lindsay perform with me throughout the show. This was a ton of fun, and now you can enjoy it, too!
