History Lesson: Before ’75 (2011 Retrocast)

History Lesson: Before ’75 (2011 Retrocast)
(Featuring a near-chronological overview of the origins of punk music.  Originally broadcast on KPSU on 3 September 2011, & podcast on 31 August 2015.)

As someone who grew up in the ’80’s and ’90’s, Punk was already transmuting into a plethora of other kinds of music by the time I reached musical consciousness.  While I came to appreciate everything that spawned from it, I had a real interest in where it came from, which has informed my musical sensibilities in that time.  While my interests now may range far and wide, the net that is cast embodies all that is punk, in the way that I define it.

This episode features edited samples from the IFC film Punk Attitude mixed with a variety of music that helped get the ball rolling.  I also include a few clips from other sources, to help flesh out the story when needed.  If you look at “punk” as a mode of music making, the genesis itself lies in The Blues, leading to Rock ‘n’ Roll.  Punk music is often steeped in the roots of Chuck Berry riffs, but as an ethos, encompasses so much more.  I try to provide as much musical insight as I have into the music that was bubbling under the surface when 1975, an important year for Punk Rock, was in full swing.

I open the show with the fantastic Pere Ubu version of “Final Solution.”  In a lot of ways, Punk was about searching for a Final Solution.  Music needed to be forever affected by something new in order to break away from some of the mainstream crimes that had been committed.  But the people themselves, desperate and hungry for something else, were also looking for a social Final Solution, a way to put behind them all the pain and horror that the world could inflict.  While Punk may not have made any massive, or permanent changes that could be considered “Final,” I think this song really sets the tone for the kind of people that made punk possible.  They were those who were searching for that Solution, and punk is the story of what came of their efforts.

This show was a real pleasure to make, and it features some of my favorite music that has ever been recorded.  While this is the only show that is completed in this form, I hope to continue this series much more frequently in the near future.  The Grumpy Punk has been reawakened in a way that I cannot sated with a mere two hour show.  I wouldn’t be surprised, October and future guests not withstanding, that this will be the foreseeable format of the show for the time being.

There is a lot that could be said of the artists in this show, and I could wax poetic for pages.  But I’ll let the radio do the talking.  It tells the story much better than I could, that’s for sure.  I will say that, before the show even started, I was getting comments and e-mail from people who wanted to make sure that I didn’t leave stuff out.  And, of course, I did.  Humorously enough, I managed to fit one or two in at the last minute.  There is an out-of-chronology Kinks song, sadly, but getting “Louie Louie” in near the front was a wise, wise move.  I have plans, after I finish the initial run of this show, to go back and plug all the holes, and expand on the work I did in this show.  Hopefully, I don’t loose motivation by then.

That’s it for this week.

See you in seven.

The Weather Report (w/ The Weatherman!) (#76)

The Weather Report (w/ The Weatherman!) (#76)

It is with no small amount of fanfare and excitement that I am able to bring none other than The Weatherman of Negativland fame to Mid-Valley Mutations. If you have been a long-time listener, or know anything about the kind of radio and music that I do, you’ll probably be saying something like, “Don’t you just try to imitate them with your work anyway?” And to that I would say: yes, poorly!

To say that Negativland has influenced me is a bit of an understatement, but their impact on this show is only one reason why it is interesting that I have The Weatherman on. This year, he has taken to social media, and for the reclusive (and often counter-cultural) artist that he is, this action took the Inter-Web-A-Tron by storm. His live feeds (full of Booper jams, mixes of radio and TV with whatever is on his VCR, and other odds and sods) are incredible, fascinating, and according to various, “terms and service agreements,” entirely illegal in the same way that sampling and collage art was deemed so in the first place. So, in many ways, he has not changed a bit.

The Weatherman and I talked for quite some time, about his current performances online, his history with Negativland, CBs and Jamming Culture, the legendary U2 single and how he found himself singing those well-known copywritten words, his relationship with Richard Lyons and Don Joyce (two band members who have both passed recently), and as if that weren’t enough, he performs The Booper, LIVE and reads The Weather!

Personally, this was a dream come true. This band and their radio show have been a focal point for the kind of work I want to create, and has guided my attitudes toward culture and art for my entire adult life. To find out that, not only are the members of this group extremely friendly and approachable, but game to go along with my nonsense too, is a very cool experience, for sure.

If you listened to the live broadcast, this podcast version has about seven minutes of bonus material, available only to the podcast listeners of the show. Scan to the end; we pick up the conversation exactly where you feel like we stopped. I would also urge you to tune in on 24 November for an interview with Mark Hosler, and on 1 December for an interview with Wobbly, completing Negativland November! It’s been a pleasure to talk to them all; now, hear what they had to say.

So, open up a fresh Club Soda, tune in KMUZ with your home-brewed radio console, and enjoy this frank and enlightening conversation with one of my favorite artists: The Weatherman.

Enjoy.

The kiisu d’salyss Interview (#69)

The kiisu d’salyss Interview (#69)

There are things you can talk about with old friends, and even more-so when you used to be in a band with that person. But kiisu is not just the sum of the band he’s currently in, and to try and distill the music he makes into just one representation is to omit so much stuff that is a joy for weirdo’s like me. Our friendship goes back 20 years, and to a band we both shared together, but you may know him best now as the guitar player for The Secret Light, who just put out their first LP, and have been playing around extensively as an up-and-coming new wave group. And while we do play songs from that release, and in that vein, this show is a whole lot more.

In many ways, this is a companion piece to the show I did with Semi-Colin of /root_DIR back in May, as we were all in that same band together way back when, but we’ve ally maintained a kind of weird friendship over the years that has a lot to do with shared ideals and experiences, and a rural Oregon Background, that sent all of us out looking for more. Colin found hardcore, I found radio, and kiisu… well, you’ll have to tune in and find out for yourself.

Shows like this are always a pleasure, as I get to hang out with a friend, listen to great music, and share it with you.

And, if you’re lucky, you’ll have remembered your potato, too.

Enjoy.

The Attic Ted Interview (#66)

The Attic Ted Interview (#66)

Being isolated out in the Pacific Northwest, we do our best to enjoy music from everywhere.  But our location causes us to have complications with local scenes from elsewhere.  It is hard enough to stay on top of what’s happening here, let alone everywhere else.  But I’m usually trying my hardest to be on the lookout for anything that might float my so-called boat, and one such example was when Attic Ted reached out about visiting our fair part of the world.

Attic Ted – known as Grady Roper off stage – is a performer from Texas, the mastermind behind Pecan Crazy Records, and like many of us, is a traveler and artist who is chronicling the art that often falls between the cracks.  In this episode, we chat about making music, traveling the world, releasing records, and supporting art that is important to both Attic Ted and Grady Roper.  During the show we feature music, including a few demo recordings that are only a month or so old, and have not appeared on any of his records.

There are often scenes that become famous, but even near them, there is a whole other microcosm of artists who would love to find a way to carve out their own niche.  Attic Ted is not only at the center of an incredible microcosm, but has been touring around, finding these microcosms, all across the world.  We are happy that he found ours, and this is merely a small sampling of what his corner of Texas is like.

This episode is a little different, in that the podcast version contains explicit language, while the broadcast version was censored.  (Attic Ted and his friends are very passionate in their use of language.)  Furthermore, there are two bonus tracks on the podcast version.  More than anything, it was an attempt to fit in more of this incredible music that you will not find anywhere else.

Closing out the show is another installment of Dimestore Radio Theater, with The Adventures of Rocky Jordan.

Enjoy.

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.
