Episode 088: How’s It Named?  Again?
(Featuring a selection of new experimental records as I cover for Ricardo Wang.)

Due to a series of unfortunate events, Ricardo Wang couldn’t make it to bring you his weekly dose of Experimental Radio goodness. Which is a pity, because some of us need that regular fix of aural strangeness to help us get through the week. Fortunately for ya’ll, I’m not only listed as the co-host of What’s This Called?, but I’ve also become the station’s official Experimental Music Director. What this means for you is that I had an hour of radio to fill, and a huge crate of new weird things to send your way. It’s the perfect marriage or time and audio, methinks.

Admittedly, there are a few tracks played during this show that did not cross my desk as recent releases. (Ahem, Don Cherry, ahem, Albert Ayler), but they seemed to fit the mood I was in for this last-minute show, and personally, if you don’t instantly want to reach for them during an experimental hour of radio, then you need to seriously re-examine your priorities, anyway. My incidental music / mash-up album of choice this week was the new release by David First, who has issues a three album set of his Droneworks. It provided the cohesive thread that held the show together, and more to the point, is great for scratching, mixing, and everything else a DJ might need. I highly recommend it.

Ricardo should be back to his old self next week. So until then, keep on rockin’ in the digital world.

Enjoy!
