ultra waggly wizard sword – live mix excerpt

Two months ago I had the esteemed pleasure of playing for the peerless* internet radio site (for lack of a better word?) ultra wizard sword. I started at around 8 PM EST on a Friday night (standard UWS start time), and expected to play for a couple hours, three at most. I didn’t really have any clear plan for the set other than to play as many of my favorite records – new and old – as I could, and to occasionally **coughcoughsloppilycoughcough** mix in some improvised Korg ER-1 Electribe drum tracks for fun. Almost 400 minutes later, after having been goaded (via the always raucous ultra-drunkie-wizard-chat) into a fourth and fifth and finally sixth hour I was exhausted from standing and finally ready to call it quits. The entire 6 hour 17 minute recording is up at the aforementioned UWS site (link above), along with a full tracklist, but I encourage you to give this excerpt a try, and to go into it without peeping the track list first. I’m confident you’ll find the experience rewarding. Download the 2 hour excerpt here. Oh, and please do check out the council of wizards Facebook page, tune in to future UWS shows, and join us (with your intoxicant of choice 😉 in the chat!

*(peerless? well, has Techno-stalwart Shawn Rudiman played a four hour live set for any other internet radio site? yeah, I didn’t think so.)
