Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1: from acid-head Alice In Wonderland to spaced out funk. (Listen to this set: )
Randy Greif  A Very Difficult Game, Indeed (CD 4, track 4) (Listen: )   Options Alice In Wonderland  Soleilmoon  Dark, stormy, even a little pounding and tormented. Alice tries to play croquet, but has problems - everything is alive, and won't behave.  ***  
Mental Nomad  Holy Mountain (track 3: begun at -3:11) (Listen: )   Options Mentalica... And Its Inhabitants  Wordsound  Dark, slow, dub-related.   
Tarwater  70 Rupies To Paradise Road (CD 1, track 3) (Listen: )   Options Wire Tapper 09  The Wire  Flat, druggy, robotic, but still warm and melodic. This 2 CD set was included with the November 2002 issue of The Wire Magazine. It is also from Kitty Yo's CD Dwellers On The Threshold.   
King Tubby  Confusion Dub (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Dub Conference  2B1  Sweet & slow.  ***  
Asian Dub Foundation  Cyberbad (track 3) (Listen: )   Options Chainstore Massacre (a compilation)  On-U  Active. Middle Eastern and Asian influences.   
ESG  Chistelle (track 11) (Listen: )   Options A South Bronx Story  Soul Jazz  A surf-y start, then becomes upbeat space-funk. This CD is a compilation of all their earlier stuff.  ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Biosphere  The Eye Of The Cyclone (CD 2, track 8)   Options Substrata/Man With A Movie Camera  Touch  Ambient, spacious, quiet.

Escape  Casting The Runes   Options Originally broadcast November 15, 1947.  (no label)  Bad author Carswell puts a spell of death on his book reviewer - who starts heading towards the same madness and death as that of the reviewer of Carswell's first book. But there is a way out....   
 
 
Mic break between Sets 2 & 3. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Biosphere  The Eye Of The Cyclone (CD 2, track 8)   Options Substrata/Man With A Movie Camera  Touch  Ambient, spacious, quiet.   
 
Set 3: the 10th anniversary of La Monte Young's "Dorian Blues In G" at The Kitchen. (Listen to this set: )
La Monte Young & The Forever Bad Blues Band  Dorian Blues In G (2 CDs, complete)   Options Just Stompin'  Gramavision  What you'll hear here is a record of one of the most extraordinary & special performances I have ever attended - the week-long series of performances of "Dorian Blues In G" at The Kitchen, from January 9 to January 17, 1993. This performance is from January 14.

The players: La Monte Young on specially tuned Korg synthesizer, Jon Catler on just intonation & fretless guitar, his brother Brad on electric just intonation & fretless bass, and Jonathan Kane on drums. Marian Zazeela, La Monte's wife, did the lights.

"Dorian Blues In G" is a raga-influenced, microtonally tuned roadhouse blues rock 122 minute piece of beautiful, extraordinary - and sensual and sexy - music.

La Monte Young has always loved the blues but, as he told me a few weeks before these performances, he felt the blues had long since become tired and bound by cliches. He wanted to shatter these...straightjackets and, in so doing, reinvent the blues.

Listen to how he and his band did just that.
