jazz // psychedelia // noise // krautrock // other
If you push post-modern thought to its logical extreme, it'll end up wallowing around naked in a sea of its own piss and shit. This is the sound of BLACK STATIC TRANSMISISON. Musical primitivism isn't some brain-dead, neanderthal fuck-around. Nor is it a bunch of angst-ridden, sexually repressed retards sticking a loop station/microphone combo into a shitty overdriven practice amp. If you want a glib soundbite, then the sound of supposedly 'high' art/thought mutated into unrestricted freedom, acting on impulse with a love of sound as sound is roughly in the right ball park. Stuffy academia it most definately is not. If you want a list of genres, then you're in the wrong place. But if you share a wave-length with free jazz, psychedelic electronics, devolved rawk shamanism, gnomic folk and other outsider audio, you'll probably have a lot to smoke about. The so-called alternative/underground is about as alternative as ham sandwiches at high altitude. Come get some gourment subterannean dining at its dangerously undercooked best.
Well, on Subcity anyway.
Thanks to all who have listened to the show for the last four years, and to all who listened to Grind Your Mind before that. It's been a blast.
BST will be back in some form in some other place in the future, and if you want any info about this, then just drop me an email at [email protected]
