Late night broadcasting with Unearthly Matters.
"Incense representing the breath of life, is another aspect of this symbolism. It was presented to the dead together with an offering of blood, the mystical 'water of life.' The incense or breath was thought to pervade the blood, which stood for the red clay, the earth from which plants grow.....
And so the double offering stood for the instilling of life into matter. The dead man could use the offered blood to make a material clothing for his spirit, so that he would be able to appear visibly on earth as a ghost."
The broadcast begins with the therapeutic and meditative ambience of J.D. Emmanuel through to the atmospheric percussive experimentalism of Vrischika.
Spiritualistic / abstract jazz meets syncopated militaristic drum compositions from David Lee Jr. whose track Evolution is separated into 7 different song hence the brief moments of silence in between each recording. Every song sounds best when you give it the time to play it out in full as intended.
Bleak / dissonant / chaotic / atonal industrial recordings from Shadowlust, Cabaret Voltaire and Justine & Juliette, plenty of cold / new wave, minimal synth and gleaming in arpeggiated polyphonic synths and the sound of 4x4 kick drums a bunch of sugar coated, but very, very, very ADDICTIVE ITALO DISCO records that I found in Oxfam Music last month thanks to a very good friend informing me of their existence.
The Helen 'Witch' and Severed Heads 'Bullet' re-releases on Dark Entries Records. And some of the finest hardcore / punk and thrash 7"s that I've been enjoying lately in the form of Black Cop's 'Unscrewed' and Skiplickers 'Disease' toward the end of the broadcast.
The show also includes hypnotic ethiopian jazz from Mahmoud Ahmed, leftfield / experimental disco from Arthur Russell and Steve Hillage and Japanese noise / death rock from Gara.03:05 - 05:05
