A Kill Ugly Radio Halloween/Samhain Mix

I’ve been wanting to mix a live Halloween show for years since (de)programming at KBOO, but one thing or another made it not happen. But tonight, I did and had a blast. It was a mix of tunes I’ve been rolling into my (semi) yearly Halloween mixes for a while with some relatively new discoveries, with some horror movie clips and the like thrown in for good measure. I love Halloween and to me, music and scary sounds are my favorite part of it – along with a few choice horror flicks. And this is probably going to be my whole Halloweening ritual for this holiday weekend; after three shows this week (Monday, Thursday and this show), I am beat

I Found a Sound: A Brief History of Sampling and Appropriation in Music

Dr. Zomb and RefuDJ ManRich present a chronological look at sampling, from it's roots in Musique Concrete and Avant Garde, to the pioneering lp by Brian Eno and David Byrne, and on to culture jamming artists such as Negativland, John Oswald, Evolution Control Committee, as well as Turntablism in Hip Hop and finally, recent Mashup masterpieces. Plunder Radio!!!

Fun show. We helped raise a few bucks for KBOO and presented - in rough chronological order - a somewhat abbreviated overview of sampling and appropriation in music.

It's amazing where the road will lead when you get two DJs in the room with pickings from their respective collections. We ended up continually surprising each other when one record from one of us would dovetail with something in another's crate, with little or no pre-planning.

Dr. Zomb and I would like to thank all the folks who provided or suggested material, among them DJ Broken Window, Rolf Semprebon, Marc De Gierre, Mssr. Chris Merrick and more...

I would also like to dedicate this show to KBOO's Papa Dada, the late, great Richard Francis, who blew my teenage mind by playing historic cut-up and tape art music on his show all those years ago.

Econopocalypse Lost - or, Spend Half as Much - Get Twice As Much.

A mix of speakers on the economy and it's supposed recovery. What's to come? Will the economy recover under the Obama adminstration and it'll be back to normal again? Free to use your home equity to leverage essential purchases like Wave-Runners and 100 inch televisions? Or, will it lead to economic chaos and - hopefully - small, local cooperative economic systems?

We hear Douglas Rushkoff on capital and where it came from and maybe where it's going. We hear Socialist professor Mike Davis speaking on Obama being called a socialist by the mainstream punditry and - of course - MIT Professor Noam Chomsky in a freeform mix-down. Spend twice as much, get half as much.

We also heard some John Zorn, some new material from KBOO's Jim Larrence and we pay homage to Satan with Camille Sauvage and Anton LaVey.

~Lux Interior (10.21.46 - 2.4.09)

I played lots of music from The Cramps long, illustrious career, including some rarities and well-loved vinyl treats.

I got a lot of nice calls; one from a guy who said he was in a garage full of bike mechanics who were digging the tunes and some even from people who had never heard The Cramps before and liked it.

I'll miss Lux and somehow the world without the possibility of new Cramps records seems unthinkable.

So long, Lux and thanks for all the happy memories and here's hoping Ivy continues on in the mission in some way.

I subbed for The Seamstress of Sound last Thursday evening and spent the night remixing and disassembling the inauguration and anything else that I came across.

We said goodbye to George, listened to bad poetry, some frightening and shockingly bigoted schizophrenic ranting from Francis E. Dec and played some of the new(ish) John Zorn album The Crucible.

On Friday night, from 10pm to Midnight, we were delighted to have on special guest noise artist Briz, who played a live set of drone/ambient sounds with his mysterious array of gadgetry.

You can find out more about his various projects at http://brizbomb.com/

You can listen to Briz's performance and Interview here.

He was also kind enough to stay for an interview and perform throughout the remainder of the show while I spun discs, samples and other mayhem.

Fun show. It's almost impossible to list all the sounds we played, but I have a rough transcription posted below Briz's performance in the list.

You can revisit this show in its entirety off-site at my blog Kill Ugly Radio.

Laibach formed in the small coal mining town Trbovlje in 1980, the same year as the death of Jugoslavija's long-time ruler Josip Broz Tito.
In 1982, they began performing around Slovenia, often under the radar of officials due to the controversial nature of their name - Laibach, which was the Germanicised name of Slovenia's capital city Ljubljana when the region was conquered by German-speaking nations throughout Slovenia's history. The name was also evocative of WWII collaborationists, which made them targets of derision from veteran Partisans.

They achieve much notoriety with their provocative performances, often promoted with simply the image of a Malevich cross instead of the forbidden name. One notable concert had a female member reading a letter from a Partisan group that condemned the band, followed by original frontman Tomaz Hostnik coming on stage in a Nazi uniform and quoting Mussolini. The cover of the live album Zagreb, Beograd, Ljubljana depicts Hostnik staring down the crowd with blood streaming down his chin from a hurled bottle. Despite his formative and aesthetic influence on the band, Hostnik soon departed and committed suicide by hanging from a kozalec - an ancient iconic Slovene hayrack, as depicted on the cover of the album Rekapitulacija.
A semi-official ban on their use of the name forced the band to seek outlets outside of Jugoslavija, which lead to wider exposure to a Western European audience and eventually America. When Laibach toured abroad in Europe, they declared the countries 'occupied'.

Laibach continued to achieve critical success, garnered a session with influential BBC DJ John Peel and deals with Wax Trax and Mute Records, the former of which continues to this day.
Paradoxically, it was the inclusion of Laibach videos on MTV's 120 Minutes program that probably gave most Americans their first exposure to their horrific sound and visuals. The videos for Opus Dei and Geburt Einer Nation, from the album Opus Dei, got airplay for more than a few subsequent weeks, as did the video for Sympathy for the Devil.

In 1984, Laibach joined forces with political painter collective Irwin under the umbrella of NSK (), along with the theater group Nasice Scipion Sisters (later named Red Pilot) and the graphic design department Nova Kollectiv.

In 1992, NSK declared itself a virtual state with no physical territories and began issuing passports at NSK events and Laibach performances.

Laibach continued to perform amidst the breakup of Jugoslavija, even giving a performance in war-torn Sarajevo, including issuing NSK passports to willing participants, who latter used them in the ensuing chaos to escape to safer territories.


Laibach has been the subject of many movies, the best of which are Predictions of Fire, Bravo: A Film from Slovenia and Victory Under the Sun. Mute/EMI are slowly releasing some of these on DVD. Two great books on the Laibach/NSK phenomenon  are Alexei Monroe's Interrogation Machine (MIT Press) and  NSK: Neue Slowenische Kunst/New Slovenian Art  (Amok Books).

Laibach continue to release albums sporadically and tour.

Despite an ever shifting lineup, they insist that Laibach has always been Dachauer, Eber, Keller and Saliger.
