A new episode of The CITY THAT ONCE WORKED offers more local political satire... this time involving scheming FBI agents trying to get The City That Once Worked back enmeshed in the Joint Terrorism Task Force...
From the Feb 2011 UBU HOUR we bring you: A SINGLE EVIL MAN "shoots off" soundbites and more to "gun down" our targets: guns, violent rhetoric, anti-Americanism, Second Amendment remedies, domestic terrorism, blood libel, death threats, deranged killers, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and Frances Fox Piven. (Frances who?) .. This originally aired in two parts, at the beginning and the end of the show, with an episode of THE CITY THAT ONCE WORKED in the middle.
Whereas others have used the recent shootings in Arizona as a time of mourning and reflection, the UBU HOUR uses this tragic event for totally crass and offensive satire... Tonight we present two "high caliber" audio dramas that "target" themes around what happened that day in Arizona .
A new episode of The CITY THAT ONCE WORKED "takes aim" with more local political satire, through the "target scope" of the Arizona event, as local politicians, FBI agents and hipsters are put in the "crosshairs."
We present 'How a Cat Played Robinson Crusoe', by Charles G.D. Roberts. Accidentally stranded on an off shore, barrier island, a cat must use all her hunting skills and feline cunning to survive the coming winter. But her situation worses as first a large storm brings an invasion of rats. And, as winter snows cover the island, owls from the mainland make nightly hunting sorties. Read by Rose Noir
Forward is not just a direction, it's a way of life for Colorado based producer Alex B who is rolling out big tunes under the new guise of Paper Diamond. The new project finds the trusted producer moving into previously untraveled musical territory. The Paper Diamond sound has raw energy and the kind of dramatic anticipation only a seasoned producer can incite. Driving beats and bass grab on tight while deep, rich tones rumble under layers of spacey synthesizers, sweet melodies, and catchy vocals. One thing is for sure. The energy is high.
