Hawkwind and Underground Resistance (LINKS FIXED)

So I was noticed that Hawkwind and Underground Resistance have some striking similarities. These are the 2 songs that made me notice how similar both bands were.

These aren't their best songs, for more listening, I recommend the albums
Hawkwind- In Search of Space
Underground Resistance- Interstellar Fugitives
  1. Both have themes of future and space/spaceships
  2. Both released crap-loads of songs

  3. Both experimented with electronics (though UR was not as bold as Hawkwind)

  4. Both probably took alot of acid (I know Hawkwind did, I only have strong suspicions about UR)

  5. Both band's were practically revolving doors for their members with the exception of a few key-characters.
  6. Both were fairly anti-capitalistic (though UR is just plain obnoxious with their releases, Hawkwind were pretty reasonable)

Some differences include:

  1. Alot of UR's stuff sucks. The suck factor of Hawkwind is significantly less.

  2. Hawkwind- British experimental acid-space-rock, UR-militant Detroit techno

  3. Hawkwind had Lemmy (of Motorhead fame), while UR did not. (this makes Hawkwind SIGNIFICANTLY better than UR

  4. UR had black people in it, while Hawkwind was comprised entirely of pasty Englishmen (this incredible difference of melanin gives UR a sharp advantage in sunny weather.

  5. UR is pretty dark and dystopian, while Hawkwind is pretty upbeat and more or less positive most of the time (however, a fair share of songs are dark and scary)
  6. UR would probably win in a fight because even though they'd be out-numbered (maybe? how many people are in UR these days, 3?) , they're in pretty great shape; Also Hawkwind are a bunch of old men. HOWEVER, if Lemmy were to re-join the band, UR would not stand a chance. If Lemmy were in a wheelchair and was missing an arm, then it MIGHT be a fair battle.

This Song is a mess but so am I

So freddy posted almost everything he's done under the "This song..." moniker, due to the material's limited availibility.
I haven't listened to the other eps and albums, but
Is pretty dang awesome. Some of the songs are duds (in my opinion, but maybe I'm not looking at the big picture?) and some of them are just dripping with greatness. BEDRIDDEN AND DANCING is my absolute favorite. the lyrics are amazing.

Bridget do you remember
putting her in a pink dress?
dancing from bed, and when
she passed they sent pink flowers.
on that day when we were rained out of
the field for crying the cajun band played
with a pink microphone cable.
we knew and we laughed!

Some of the textures and sounds may take a little getting used to ( or you just might not like it at all) Some of my favorite songs resemble carnival music, only the carnival is run by ministry and someone stole all their guitars. This is the first "This song..." album, and the first few stages of coping with death are apparant from the start, (shock, anger). I've never heard electronic music be so sincearly emotional. His voice is so honest and real, it's very hard to misinterpret any of his feelings as overly dramatic or fake, despite the fact that he is screaming and convulsing over his mother's death.
oh mother give me strength. i've seen many faces
come out of frames but they all said the same things.
i've heard enough iam sorry's to last a lifetime. i know i am
too young to feel the way i do. but i saw the courage in your eyes.
and i know that over this hill is the sun.

As amazing as his lyrics surely are, the vocal mix is muddy and quiet, which really pisses me off. I know he does not have a "singer's voice" or whatever the fuck that means, but I don't care. all the better and more honest. Since his voice is so young and relatively "thin" he's decided that it's better off masked by sound, which I feel is a great mistake. To really appreciate this, you should read the lyrics (included in the zip file) along with the album.
Another suggestion about his art which I have no right to make is that I think he should sing with a little more melody. I dunno. maybe that's just me.
Hell, forget I said anything. The songs are amazing by themselves.

20 KNIVES new ep: Royal Invitation

This shit is awesome.

I wanna say "really melodic breakcore", but if you wanna spit hairs, this is really just IDM (ugh I hate that term) I'm gonna take a random guess, but I'm pretty sure that this was made in renoise. Intricate melodies cascade through some of the best sounding synthesis (organic sounding) I've heard (maybe ever). The whimsical textures and robotic speech paint a surreal tale of escape from life's problems, (a STARK difference to the theme of the movie "The Holy Mountain" which he's sampled for at least 1 or 2 of the songs.) and has a strange rustic-future fantasy feel to it. This music is quite unlike most stuff I've heard. It's definitely "chin stroking music" but not aloof or boring.

The song I've chosen for the blog is the last track of the EP is "Octopod Sings", and it's not like the rest of the album, as it's more/less a traditional song. (guitar, singing) but I really like it.

Bro used to be called "Pale" (before some bar-band from texas threatened to sued him) and he and Ed Flis (aka duranduranduran made this totally bitching song called "The Year of the Dragon" (good luck finding it) that's definitely worth looking up.

The Gentle Waves (link fixed)

SO I had this really great mp3 on my harddrive, and I had no idea what it was other that I thought it was from a compilation of 60's pop I got from my friend scott's house.
Boy was I wrong. This gentle ballad was made about 10 years ago. fooled me anyways.

(Singer from Belle & Sebastian)

trash80's EP

HOT DAMN! this stuff is GOOOD. 3 O's good.

Often I've listened to chiptunes, and thought to myself, "this would be really great if they did some actual production on this rather than just dump the audio out from the gameboy."
That's pretty much what's happened. Some great gameboy music has been expanded with modern technology resulting in some compositions that are really awesome.

I've been a fan of this guy's work for quite some time. Just when I figured he got hit by a bus or joined a convent, he dropped this bomb on me. Chippy electro to the MAXX. (2 x's)

it's free. get it now.

Jerry Reed

Remember that movie Waterboy with adam sandler?
remember the evil coach of the opposing team?
well he made alot of music in the 70's, including the theme to Smokey and the Bandit.

Bubble Puppy

If your experience with Psychedelic rock music is limited to a few beatles albums, take note.
Reguarding Bubble Puppy, There's not much to remarkable about the band it's self, other than they dressed real funny and made a lot of refrences to Alice in Wonderland.

What IS remarkable is their music, namely this song:

Bubble Puppy-Hot Smoke and Sassafras

the rest of the album is really great too!

on a side note, be sure to check out Paper Rad's music video for the song.

Skip Bifferty

Dear god, these guys makes some pretty music. I don't know any thing about them, but here are some internet facts/blurbs/rumors:
-these guys were plugged by John Peel and endorsed by the likes of Keith Moon (cite)
-The Story of Skip Bifferty" is their only official release.
-Skip Bifferty was a rock band formed in early 1966, when The Chosen Few (Featuring Alan Hull, later of Lindisfarne) from Newcastle upon Tyne changed their name and got a new singer (cite)
-they're from Newcastle, England

apparently there's not a whole lot to them....EXCEPT THEIR MUSIC IS FUCKING AMAZING!

Sunday, June 1, 2008


This is totally one of my fav artists right now, his stuff is so youthful and free: I love it. He's one third (or half, I'm not sure) of Wyld File, the people responsible for the Standing in the Way of Control" video for The Gossip, "Gameboy Homeboy"(beck video) and many other awesome things. If that wasn't enough, he also runs one of the cooler labels out there: Audio Dregs . He's also does a ton of art, flash and music which i practically want to hump, it's so good. It's cooler than smoking, I swear.

I didn't have many good questions, but he's was a sweetheart and answered them anyways.
I bought the "Secret Lawns" cd/dvd a while back, and I was wondering if I could interview you for this little music blog I make. T
hat would be awesome if you could.(editor's note: go buy the dvd)

hey john,yeah, i'd be down for an interview. though if you want charlie/panther you should contact him here: i put out the record, did some beats and made some videos, but its his band!
-I thought you did some producing too,
what other beats/projects have you done?
Yeah, did some production on there too. Some upcoming remixes for ratatat, panther, yacht, white rainbow...discography here, but i haven't updated in like a year!
-what's your current musical project that you're excited about?
New e*rock stuff might take a while to surface, but trying to do something more visual with live manipulated audio/visual sync... that and remixes and some other stuff that i can't really talk about because its going to take too long to finish.
-So you would say that you're still a visual artist primarily then?

Maybe. Well, that's the easiest way to get off the hook when people ask what I do. I'm something different every other week these days.

-When did you start being an artist professionally, and how did that happen?

I made a slow transition over the past 10 years of working only freelance and working for myself. I was a buyer at a record store for ten years after I moved to Portland; doing more and more print design work freelance, and eventually more video and animation, and kept the record label going all along. My "fine art" work has meshed with my "pop culture" side and (commercial side even) more and more. I'm not really making art "professionally" as far as I can tell. ha.
-What software/machines do you like to use ? (for music AND video)

For audio I use Abelton Live almost exclusively now. For videos I use Flash, After Effects and Final Cut, as well as Illustrator and Photoshop and whatever I can scan in there, if there's any animation involved. The usual things as well as some extras like macromedia futuresplash.

What are your favorite drugs?


What do you think about political art?

That's a good question, I feel like politics is in most good art, but maybe in the background. I think living sustain-ably is probably the most important political statement you can make. Eventually the politics will become more apparent in all the things that we do.

What are your favorite mediums when you draw/paint/color whatever it is you do?

I like when everything gets mixed. Drawing and Flash might be my favorites and I should probably incorporate more paper drawings into Flash, but it can be very time consuming. It would be nice to have a scanner that you could load a stack of papers into and it would scan and save in sequence. That's my dream right now.

What's your favorite beer?


What are you typically doing on a friday evening?

That's a good time to stay home and edit video if there's no bands playing that I need to see.

Do you think Justin Timberlake is as dreamy as everyone says he is?

Yeah, pretty much. Maybe not much to look at, but dreamy like a baby horse.

What's the going rate for an e-rock music video these days?

A stack scanner and a Duvel.

Why did you start audiodregs, and how would you say it differs fromother labels in the way it's run?

I did a cassette label in high school (mostly my own music to start), then CDRs, and then did vinyl and CDs with Audio Dregs, but it was always about releasing friends music that wouldn't have been heard otherwise. I didn't know I was "doing a label at first", but it was something. We're different than most because we're not commercially motivated. I'm not trying to release popular bands-usually more insular single expressions of home producers or people that operate between genres, but its about the ideas and working with people that you like. \

What kind of buisness model does the label typically operate under? Small runs? any Distro?
We usually do 1000 CDs and repress if needed. Our main distro is Darla. They are a small indie distro/label and are nice people and consistent and have really helped me out a ton. Its actually possible to our order our CDs through more mainstream places and one stops and like but I really doubt that many get sold that way.

What's the worst/best thing anyone's ever said about your work?

People usually just say that my work is basically The Red Hot Chili Guys in the year 2010. I think that's the best thing anyone has ever said. The worse is when they said that my art made me look fat.

(I know this question is corny) Where do you get inspiration/ideas from?

Friends, the internet, LP covers, video games and zines... Shoboshobo, Mat Brinkman, Ola Vasiljeva, Paper Rad, Matt Lock, Brent Wadden, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Eye, Kyle Field, Seripop, CF, Zeloot...

Do you garden much?

It sounds like a good idea, but our yard is about 3 feet wide.

What's your favorite ethnic food?

Japanese, Vietnamese and French and those wood oven Euro style pizzas with salad are awesome. In australia they put beats and fried eggs on hamburgers-not very awesome.

from an artistic standpoint, how much of what you do is premeditated/spontanious?

That's always the trick, trying to balance solid premeditated ideas with a spontaneous approach so that the outcome has some surprises. Its like being a scientist in a way.

Can you tell by the line of questioning that I'm ADHD?

I know HD means "high definition" but the other part is like after the year zero?

Doesn't art school just make you throw up in your mouth a little?

I never tried art school. My sister is going to grad school right now for art and it sounds a little intense, but I think it can be good if it challenges you and you can take what you want from it in the end. I'm not a very professional artist, I suppose I should try harder, but I also like that because there's no pressure to follow anyone's rules. BUt I also want to do it all, and art school would probably be a good way to focus for a while.

I guess I don't have anything else to ask... is there anything you wanna talk about/say? music or food or something?

I like turtles.

Manhattan Skyline

I love this band, and I love this song.

Wednesday, May 28, 2008


Every now and then, you come across a band from the annals of time that absolutely blows your fucking mind, and you attempt to rationalize how in gods name you made it this far without knowing jack shit about them.

And the worst part about it is it wasn't even suggested by a dear friend or dremt about in a holy vision from god.

oh no, it was piped in through some retarded source like vh1 classic on a saturday afternoon or youtube of all places.

That's how I found out about sparks, and quite frankly, I have no idea why this band never conquered the world like the who or the rolling stones or something. I mean, damn man.

so many things, so many facinating tiny facts I want to outline, here are a few
-they're brothers.
-they've been doing music for almost 40 years nonstop
-that moustache.
-they're from LA! not england! (though they admit to being anglophiles)

so go buy 32 of their albums and go to one of their shows.

DJ copy is the bomb digity

SO Jonbro let me borrow this album called HAIR GUITAR by DJ COPY. It's nice and happy! The best way I can think to describe it is slightly midish-arpy-disco-synth pop with a healthy slab of production gravy. The mood is very fanciful, but not gayly so. DEFINITELY cheer up music. There are these smidges of shredish riffs and solos which are vrry nice. Alot of the songs have this really awesome epic kind of fantasy vibe to them which I totally dig. hardcore even.

When you buy it from Audio Dregs it comes with BONE THUGS N HARMONY N COPY.

IT IS MY SUGGESTION is that you buy the vinyl record, cause it's only 10$ and it comes with both the bonus cd and access to mp3 downloads + a cdr of HAIR GUITAR. that's a shitload of stuff for 10$. IF that's STILL too much for yo po ass, access to the mp3 downloads are only 6$(sans BONE cdr): that's roughly the price of a value meal, and I for one think this album is worth skipping several meals and then some.


Myspace is the ultimate internet-music double edged blade. Never before have so many depressingly unfit for real life people made such catastrophically horrible, HORRIBLE music. Sometimes you really can't tell if it's a joke, and other times you KNOW it's not a joke, and yes, the middle school white rapper's mom really did comment on his page and tell him he was "da illest",and that she was his "numba 1 fan".
On the OTHER hand, it's a great way to browse music and meet people that you would NEVER EVER bump into under any other circumstances. I got my first track into print through myspace. I met Jason (dj socky) and mike (polygonskull), and now they're releasing my album under his label, Fantasy Violence Records

Here are interesting artists I've found on myspace:

A myspace artist I'm more than jazzed by is Teen Moms. He's got this green-myspace artist feel to him, but the fun in his music outshines the slight gameboy/fl studio vibe. creme of the myspace electro-dance crop.

Teen moms' myspace (at least 3 free downloads there)

Freddy Rupert makes some very interesting music, and has some of the most engaging live shows I've ever seen. He's garnered alot of attention and critical acclaim with his project "This Song is a Mess, but So Am I". I absolutely hate it when people compare new artists to already established artists, but I can't help thinking "if Morissey was roommates with Ministry in college", even though he honestly sounds like neither.

"When I originally started this project in May 2003, it was a way for me to deal with the death of my mother from cancer in January of that same year. I don't think I really had any intentions of dragging it out this long."

Freddy still makes music but not under the name "This Song is a Mess, but So Am I".

review: Legowelt - Classics 1998-2003

I bought the mp3 album from last night, and is as awesome as a t-rex with robot arms and rocket launchers. The mood however, is less cybernetic t-rex, but more euro-horror-carpendertastic-electro-spy-thriller-orgasm. Some of the songs may seem a little too similar, but I definitely don't mind. This album is sweet, sweet, gravy. If you even THINK you like legowelt, than this is the album for you.

So I get my assignment and I have to track a west german operative carrying top secret documents concerning a communist plot so thick, so earth shattering, that not even I know what it's concerning. Our chase leads us across europe on the trans-europe express, and as I watch the old country unfold before me, I can't help but ponder what could possibly be so secret that I couldn't even be told about it. I finally track the target through the dirty ghettos of the hague. When I finally catch him, I learn more than I wish.

Suddenly everything changes as Wulfgang tells me what I innitally think are babbleings of a mad man. A tale of mindcontrol, interdimentional portals, the Occult, and government controlled zombies. I don't believe him untill a bullet misses me and shatters the framed picture on the wall behind us. Now both governments are after us, and we have to work together just to survive, and some how we must reverse the portal and save mankind.

The album sounds just like that.

Everybody listen to count dorkula!!!!

Sometimes, I like to get on myspace and search for band names I'm not sure exist or not, like "the violent gynocologists" or "stankfyst". Sometimes they do exist, and usually I am floored by the medocrity of their music.
"Count Dorkula" was More than the exception. His laidback far west desert vibes and are fan-fucking-tastic.

I'm serious, this shit is hotter than hell, like everything i like about folky grassy country music that I like distilled to perfection!!!!

Add his ass! (count dorkula's myspace, 2 more downloads!)

here's a song he added a while back that he took off for some reason....

Bette Davis Eyes

j-chot> her hair is hollow gold
crasyS> are you ok jchot
j-chot> Her lips sweet surprise
j-chot> Her hands are never cold
j-chot> She's got Bette Davis eyes
j-chot> She'll turn her music on
j-chot> You won't have to think twice
j-chot> She's pure as New York snow
j-chot> She got Bette Davis eyes
j-chot> And she'll tease you
j-chot> She'll unease you
j-chot> All the better just to please you
j-chot> She's precocious
j-chot> And she knows just what it
Lilly> vanilla ice?!
j-chot> Takes to make a pro blush
j-chot> She got Greta Garbo Stand off sighs,
j-chot> She's got Bette Davis eyes

van damme?

If Legowelt is the soundtrack to 70's coldwar spy dramas and italian zombie movies, WC olo Garb is 80's low budget cyberpunk and van damme movies (mostly bloodsport series). That is, if van damme movies were way more awesome. And also maybe set in space. Also this man makes the most awesome synth pron I HAVE EVER SEEN. You have got to check out his dx7 patches. Epic. shit. I totally forgot that this guy has the greatest most diverse collection of synths EVER.

Everytime i close my eyes, all I can see is future chainmail and lazer eyes.
and Jean Claude van damme.

making synth demos.

Unit Moebius Rules

They're so foreign and mysterious!
let's think of the state of dance music in 1992 for a minute. I don't know about you, but when I close my eyes, all I see are dayglo colors, c&c music factory, and maybe that huge plastic butt in the sir-mixalot video.
ok, with that in mind. Listen to this track:
Unit Moebius- Elevator

pretty cool huh?
now imagine being in a closed down warehouse filled with strobes on LSD, because that's pretty much what all the bunker record parties were. (watch this awesome documentary and start with part 2)
...or so I've read, I mean what the hell do I know, I'm just some hick with an internet connection.

P.S. it's really damn hard to purchase their music because they haven't reissued ANY of it, and there are no mp3s in any damn online retailer. Thankfully one can procure their stuff on soulseek.
they're anarchists, they won't mind.

Friday, May 9, 2008


I'm gonna be honest with you guys, this shit is staaaaale. I did this interview in september of 2006. Only I didn't really have a place for it untill now.


Skymall makes hard music

What is your real name?
Edward Eugene Perencevic 24/S/W/M

Where are you from?

What upcoming release are you excited about?
"Stars n' Bars" Split 12" with remixes by Doormouse on Addict Records

How/when did you get started making this music?
In High-school i was a singer in a hardcore band, then sang and did noise for a noise/grind band. I was really into the whole DHR scene when i was in highschool. Then when i went to college in 2000 and started listening to people like Oval, Kid 606, Squarepusher and Datach'i, and I also got really into the whole minimal/glitch scene with labels like Mille Plateaux(RIP) and Force. So around that time i bought a shitty drum machine and would make tracks using my girlfriend's computer and that "sound recorder" program windows used to have. which could only do about 4 things. but it was cool. those tracks are ridiculous. Actually my good friend Adam does a project right now all on sound recorder, you should check it out to see what I'm talking about: Ok, so i finally got a computer and started using sound-forge and i only made weird noise tracks...then shortly after that started hanging with otto von schirach and dino felipe, and they opened my eyes to all kinds of music i never heard before and it made me want to start making beats. And i've been doing the same shit ever since
..........oh yeah,i was also a minimal/tech house dj for a while back in 2001-2003 and I've been djing an IDM/Noise/Techno//// radio show on 90.5 FM in miami from 2002-Now called the "Electric Kingdom" (old electro track by Twilight 22):

What do you make music with?
Alot of things actually.
I Like using a lot of different programs because it sort of creates its own sound. It becomes unique, which is always nice with this music. When i use one program on a track i can tell the difference between that, and something i "experimented" more with. So right now, this is kind of the set up
Making sounds consists of recording things with a mic, sampling records, sound designing with soft synths and reaktor, circuit bending and layering effects on random shit. Then i'll go back and cut up what i made and have a new library of sounds.Then i start the track in either fruity loops or Nuendo. I like Nuendo, cause it's professional as fuck and sounds really good, and it allows me to use fruity loops inside of it as rewire plugin. So i can sync up two programs i really like at the same time. Then after i sequence abig chunk of the track i bounce/export separate pieces of it i.e. just kicks, just snares, whatever and open them up in soundforge where allthe magic happens. This is where the song gets sliced and fucked and pretty much becomes good. haha. I also use audiomulch hooked up to a midi controlller and will run pieces of the track through a shitload of vsts and record myself fucking with it.after everything is scrambled and dsp'd out i put it all back together again in nuendo. If i end up mastering the whole track i do it Wavelab

Who are you excited about right now?
Um, well for a while now I've been sweating Errorsmith. that guy is seriously amazing. I'm not sure if you know his stuff, but he does these tracks that sound super simple; Loops, very few sounds... but they slowly change and the sounds slowly peak out and change and morph and its seriously a head trip....
Also this label out of Germany called "miditonal" they put out real crazy techno. It's super fast, super heavy, noisy as fuck but still danceable....
ebola, that guy is just sick....
oh, candie hank!!! which is Patric C. from Ec8or, it's insane. it's like cartoon music/ real goofy. dancey at times....
Sun O.K. Papi K.O. amazing. part of scratchpetland. solo shit. this guy rules....
Other than that a lot of weird french techno that everyone loves now, all the bass music happening out of NYC with my boys Drop theLime and Mathhead, Dino Felipe is still the most talented person making music today. seriously. secret mommy, new mouse on mars is pretty heavy, Niobe is amazing. ok that's it for now.

What is your day job?
haha, right now i work retail. Woo. before that i was a chef, before that, a butcher,before thatI worked at a goodwill donations center, landscaping, blahblah blah.

where should/can I get your music?
Well. hm. i don't have that much out. I have a track on the Addict Records Barn Compilation, a track on the Mochipet "feel my china remix" cd, a track on the Otto V.S. "armpit buffet" remix cd, thenotto and i did this side project a few years ago called "megadebt"which is out on beta bodega/rice and beans, and really that's it. I guess if you google that shit you can find it, cause i really dont even have any of it.I think I'm done now.ok well, thanks.peace-ed--

rave on, UK peoples

"Police will not break up illegal raves because darkness is a health and safety risk"

haha! that's pretty silly, but good news nonetheless!

the king of chiptunes

it just happens that the first 2 posts are about chippy artists.

HOWEVER they don't come any chippier than this mother fucker. the man INVENTED the midi-nes. Yes, it's as cool as the name implies. (it's also 89$!!!!) ASK YOUR GRAMMA TO GET YOU ONE FOR CHRISTMAS.
