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.)

Ten Years Lost

The more things change, the more things stay the same. I could just as well leave this post at that. Ten years ago Tom started this site with the basic idea of highlighting music that is overlooked by other outlets. The same frustrations that brought about the blog still stand. It may seem like we…
