Jukebox Heart 25 Part 1: Impact


Once you were a normal human being. But your rapid ascension changed all of that. Your status as Lord of the World, leader of the Department of the Planetary Christ, is unchallenged. You have grown into a ghostly amazon, a dense and heavy metal, fast as mercury, solid yet viscous, flowing freely but shaped by what ultimately must contain you. You are lost along the highway that runs the entire length of the coast. You have no idea where you are, but you never lose sight of the sea. Your senses are guided by rockets flying just above the horizon. The final and essential result is the prediction of the angle of approach, which, until now, was not possible given your constraints. These inelastic boundaries damage you with each encounter. Impact and exhale, You push until he breaks; his defenses lowered, his flesh yielding to your will, finally allowing penetration. Five, ten, fifteen seconds, it’s over. Far from the established route. These newly discovered apocryphal gospels tell you everything you need to know.

Jukebox Heart 25 Part 2: Exhale


It’s not an adventure if things go according to plan. But then you ran out of money and you ran out of gas and then you ran out of hope in southwest Texas. You found a place that would give you a bed, and it was lucky for you that you still had your looks, because all you had to do in exchange was to swallow every night. Sometimes it was more than just the clerk. Sometimes it seemed like the whole damn town. Where is your lordship status now? Each bit of you that he takes brings you closer to nothing – the nothing that you were in lower Manhattan, on Pier 48, where your hands graced the sleek, cold wrought iron rails until streaks of morning sunlight poured in through the broken, painted windows. There must have been a hundred names, an alias for each new vision. You’d dream them up in the washroom near the fountain, or in the backs of vacant trucks. Anything not to reveal your true self. Exhale and impact. You are numb as you march in the parade, on display and yet invisible to the masses and impervious to touch. Here is where the story ends. The hero gets the girl and the villain gets the boy. And it’s all on the net before you even get settled for the night. Your long westward voyage is complete, and your final salvation, lost. What is left to say.

FM Broadcasts: Walking With Our Hands In The Air

We are all friends here. We share how we feel and talk about how we can help each other. But you and I…this is different. You are the wind and I am the trees. I love to pass the days with you in serious and inconsequential chatter. This is something you must always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. When all is said and done, you are a part of me. Help me put an end to what is killing you. You dream while wide awake. Your actions are disconnected from your emotions and conscience. What then must be done?

When a man has purposed to make a given thing, and has brought it to perfection, his work will be pronounced perfect, not only by himself, but by everyone who rightly knows. Our experience is not unique. As the fates unfolded, your vision became clear. This is not your great jubilee. Nowhere may you find the silver or the gold once promised. Every word that is spoken here points to this one thing: that this humiliating age has not succeeded in winning our respect. We are lost in a city of poets where the rain is milk and the sunshine is wet paint upon the soul.

Your sin is hardly original, your every move calculated for the weight of its trangression. But what is it that is inherently wrong? You long for your days in Europe when you walked with your hands in the air as if to hold the hands of God. A world away, a lost reality. You make it up as you go along. But your history is too contrived to recall. Like repeated genetic mutations, its very core changes with every revision. The so-called facts are too erratic to even repeat.

Yours is a random sorcery, beautiful lies fabricated from the brutal truths of a former life. Fling open the windows and let the birds fly away. You have no way of knowing where they are going or if any of them will ever return. The salty air blankets you and eases the torture you feel as you watch them depart. You run and hide as the soldiers approach, but the field is thick with roots and weeds too dense to cross.

We are all friends here. Nothing is sacred. You are under constant surveillance. The right words will save your life.

This week’s Jukebox Heart concentrated on the art of the compilation. Each track presented was culled from a compilation or anthology. Compilations are often maligned in the music press for reasons that have always confounded me, that being a lack of cohesiveness. By nature, compilations often feature a widely varying offering of sounds, often combining more than a dozen artists and styles. The real art of the compilation is making these styles come together in a way that has some kind of purpose that is not so arcane as to be completely missed. We featured classic compilations such as The Elephant Table Album and Fruit of the Original Sin, all the way through to current compilations on the WZBC playlist.

FM Broadcast: Empty Anthems and Silent Cries

It was something I did not say. Here is what I mean. What I meant to say. I watch the clock. I wait for words that never come. He was so busy trying to figure everything out, he hadn’t noticed that time was running out. She scratched his face during the confrontation. He fell to the floor. His high endeavors are an inward light. He fell to the earth. Still I say nothing.

Do not be anxious. Do not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow is a drag, man. Tomorrow is a king-size bust. Stay up all night and watch one infomercial after another, with lonely-hearts ads for beautiful-people wishes. More beautiful than you will ever know. It’s free to try. It costs nothing to play. Low risk, high consequence. Send random texts to people on your friends list to see who else is up. You’re under the delusion that you are safer staying awake and you’ll do anything to avoid the silence.

It was something I did not say. This time the words well up inside. Stand your ground and keep your distance. Empty anthems and silent cries. My dreams are tortured silhouetes. More beautiful than you will ever know. The bed feels as cold as ice. And as I rise, I step on landmines. Here is what I meant to say. Some days the faith eludes you. Do not close your eyes.

Featured Release:

K. C. Accidental – Captured Anthems For An Empty Bathtub + Anthems For The Could’ve Bin Pills

An exciting new reissue from Arts & Crafts records in late 2010, the double CD package we featured tonight compiles the two long out of print releases from K.C. Accidental. K.C. Accidental was the original basis for the better known post rock ensemble Broken Social Scene. Formed in 1998 from Toronto, the core of the band consisted of Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin, and Began as just the two of them; The “K. C.” in the band’s name was taken from the initials of their first names. They released only two albums of mostly instrumental music. The duo’s debut album Captured Anthems for an Empty Bathtub was sold by Drew and Spearin exclusively through one shop in 1998 and quickly sold out.

KCA released a second album in 2000 entitled Anthems for the Could’ve Bin Pills on Noise Factory Records, with the track listing featuring six blank tracks of 4 seconds each before the six music tracks, the blank tracks representing the six tracks on Captured Anthems. When Captured Anthems was reissued by Noise Factory in 2003, the opposite was done (i.e. six music tracks followed by six blank tracks).

Anthems for the Could’ve Bin Pills also included contributions from Jason Collett, Evan Cranley, Emily Haines, Jason McKenzie, Jessica Moss, James Payment, Bill Priddle, James Shaw and Justin Small. Many of these musicians went on to work with Broken Social Scene, who released their debut album, Feel Good Lost on Noise Factory in 2001. Broken Social Scene also added a song with the title “KC Accidental” on their album You Forgot It in People.

The image above is of the original cover for Anthems for the Could’ve Bin Pills. The same image was used on the reissue, but additional text was added for the new cover.


Featured Artist:

Piano Magic

Piano Magic is a loose collective of sorts, with an ever-changing lineup originally inspired by bands like This Mortal Coil. Core member Glen Johnson formed the band in 1996 with Dick Rance with Dominic Chennel. Over the years the quiet bedroom project has expanded and changed as Johnson enlisted the help of friends, acquaintances, and moonlighters from other bands. The evolution of the band is quite complex due to its affiliation with so many artists, and a full bio for the band and and intricately detailed timeline of their activity and releases may be found on the band’s website. Their most recent recording as the entity Paino Magic, “Ovations”, features contributions from Dead Can Dance’s Brendan Perry and Peter Ulrich, and in he past have featured collaborations with Low’s Alan Sparhawk, among others.


Featured Label:


One of the best IDM labels to emerge at the end of the twentieth century, London’s Toytronic was founded in 1997 by Martin Haidinger and Tony Douglas. Martin Haidinger is a key figure in IDM and is also a member of Basic End, Das M, Das Programm, Der Raum, Die Kleinen Gärtner, Die Monotonen, Gimmik, Low Profile Society, M, Marvin Kirk, Num Num, Tape, TV-Vision, Wundertüte, and in a former incarnation also operated Tonträger Tapes while still living in Linz. Chris Cunningham, of Abfahrt Hinwil, also joined the operating staff of Toytronic at about the time the Neurokinetic compilation was released. He has recently released material on Toytronic as Point 7. One of the most important IDM imprints, Toytronic was known for Martin’s graphic designs as well as their habit of releasing a multitude of extremely limited edition hand-rendered versions fo each of its releases, as well as for their inclusion o limited edition comics and candy, included in a small portion of their general releases.


Other Notes:

Of particular interest to long time NCP listeners is the Narki Brillans record we played tonight. It is a recording from one of the original members of The Homosexuals, originally released in 1981 on cassette on the now legendary It’s War Boys imprint (Sarah Goes Pop, Milk From Cheltenham, etc). Remastered by Narki Brillans and reissued onto this lovely red vinyl LP, this recording has been shuttered away for 30 years. At a limited run of 265 copies, this LP will be harder to obtain than the original cassette. Go shopping!

Free from static and jammed signals, his spirit error is fixed. Fixed in air with resolute intellect, he joins the community of the healed. He communicates the Love of God in the language of healing. He shall not be afraid. He shall not be moved. He is certain in his purpose. He has searched his soul for the new eternal answers. Soul-searching is actually personal goal setting in its infancy. The problem at hand is that for many people that infant never grows to maturity. Yet, he is a righteous man; he shall not be afraid of evil tidings. His heart is fixed. His spirit is fixed. iFixer v1.0. His soul is no longer broken.

Your faith may not fail. Situation ethics always supposes some kind of hypothetical circumstance in which there is no solution that is morally right. No temptation has overtaken you that hasn’t confronted anyone else in the past. The only way out is through. And I would walk through fire for you. Can I not, at least, expect the same in return? Herein lies the dilemma: what is not true?

Once you have experienced a failure of faith, nothing is ever certain again. Even the smallest incongruity is a suggestion of deception perpetrated by a figure of relative importance. You have been lied to, that is certain, but by whom? You exist in that realm of self-doubt where action is not necessarily governed by reason, where myth is often mistaken for knowledge and where truth has many interpretations. This is at once a place where one bridges gaps and assigns meaning according to one’s own personal science.

We understand exactly what it is we’re doing and what effect we’re having. We tend to accept the blame for problems that are not of our own making. We reconsider those assumptions which meaning and purpose to who we are and what we do. Prescriptive. Causal. Paradigmatic. In many ways we are our assumptions. We take actions on the basis of assumptions that are unexamined and we believe that others are reading into our actions the meanings that we intend. We justify what we do by thinking that the unconfirmed evidence of our own eyes is always accurate and valid. We build bridges and we wait for them to twist and collapse in the wind, like so many other shoes that drop at exactly the wrong time. We sit and quietly listen to an isolated moment. And we hope for the best.


We are almost finished catching up to the current FM broadcast. Meanwhile, we’ll post each past broadcast until we are up to the minute…


Featured Releases:

Brume – End of Symptom Dump

While Christian Renou, aka Brume, had a multitude of cassette releases predating this LP, this single side of an LP shared with La Nomenklatur was his first outing onto vinyl. It remains one of my favorites, and we chose to play this early piece as a Happy Birthday wish to him.


Sonic Youth – Simon Werner A Disparu

Just how a band can remain intact for thirty years and develop a signature sound which is continually updated to remain fresh is a one of life’s glorious mysteries. Receiving lots of mixed reviews, I’m personally grooving on a lot of the old school style material to be found here on which I cut my sonic teeth. This expands and augments a lot of the music made for the movie of the same title. It’s admittedly rough edged and demo-sounding, like most of the output on the band’s SYR imprint, but as such, ultimately, that is one of the more endearing qualities of this thing. We are loving it…


Last Trax:

Data Bank A: “Spiritus Sanctus”

Local (well, Lowell, anyway) artists loosely associated with Boston’s early 80’s post-industrial scene (see: The Oblique Collection and Drastic Perversions compilations.) Andy Szava-Kovats’ Data Bank A project began in 1983, releasing several cassettes and LPs before escalating to international attention. The track played tonight is culled from their recently released Greateas Hits collection but is also the title track to their debut cassette album. The image shown above is from the original cassette.



Robert Hampson “Umbra” from Vectors CD (Touch 2009)
Mountains “Map Table” from Choral CD (Thrill Jockey 2009)
Mountains “Telescope” from Choral CD (Thrill Jockey 2009)
Nurse With Wound “A New Dress” from A Bead to A Small Mouth LP (Barooni 1990)

In acoustics and specifically in acoustical engineering, background noise or ambient noise is any sound other than the sound being monitored. Calling some signal or sound noise is often a subjective distinction. One person’s maximum-volume music listening pleasure might be another’s unbearable noise. By measuring the spatial relationships of elementary domestic sound, composition and construction is immediately assisted. In this case the product of the investigation is a sound level contour map. “We’re so conditioned to experience the world through our eyes that the other senses really suffer,” English says. “It’s always interesting to go into a space you know very well and then close your eyes.” The following objects use the seemingly trite sound of a door bell as its starting point to create and suggest alternatives to the generic sound-scapes of everyday life that we often take for granted. Money. Coffee. Cigarettes. Utopia.

And yet, I was desperate to rid myself of these irritating, annoying sounds. Cerumol ear drops. Earex ear drops. Otex ear drops. Nothing works. The pounding never stops. Pushing deeper, the eardrum buzzes. Fill your ears with wax and wicks. Burn the candle at both ends. Even before the 16 careening dancers come into view, even before the explosion of swirling, brilliant colors, you feel it. The drumming. The pulse of drumming rhythms hits in the chest, shivering and shimmering, the spine ignites. See the robot drummer who prefers playing drums to squashing humans like flies. This machine rages against you. Striker. Slider. Solenoid Motor. USB Connectivity and Wifi Compatible. His ardor never sours.

Here and now, the beat goes on. The lies expand into canyons. The canyons become streets. The streets are wet with the rain of days and glimmer with the lights of night. You cannot stop us. Our drumming is a blindsiding distraction making way for the soundless message of death. Unplug your ears; there will be no fireworks.

February 9, 2009. A quiet night at the Z. Long luxurious expanses of drums and madness. An icy cold night. The Antagony IS the Ecstasy…

FM Broadcasts: The Optimist’s Easy Magic

Mark Twain said, “There is no sadder sight than a young pessimist,” but I disagree. I’m more inclined to agree with Voltaire who said that Optimism is the madness of insisting that all is well when we are miserable. Optimism is often the space between what we wish to be and what we are; the difference between half-full and half-empty. It is a trick of the perception. It would seem that still, afer all these years, perception is thought to be a passive porcess. Rather this is just an excuse for laziness. It becomes an issue of having to choose between two evils and selecting the one you’ve never tried before. It is guilt coupled with pleasure, and pleasure coupled with guilt. Some view caution as pessimism while the optimist is blind to the thorns of the rose. I view pessimism as a healthy dose of realism and optimism as a messenger’s bag of magic trix slung over your shoulder, always at the ready but never in the way. Just what makes that little old ant think he can move that rubber tree plant…

February 2nd marks the week that Jukebox Heart became part of the regular programming on WZBC. Wednesday Nights at 10PM eastern time. We are back after a long absence from the WZBC frequency. While Jukebox Heart will still pull out the occasional hourlong-mix podcasts as we have been doing all along, these FM broadcasts, being a regular weekly event, will quickly outnumber those. As such, I’ll be treating these just like those others, giving each a unique name and mini-rave essay cut-up thing as before. Long time readers know that these are drawn somehow from the audio content. It’s left as an exercise to the reader to figure out just how…

So, this week, let’s all take a breath now and then, let’s nurture our secret easy magic power and get in touch with our optimism, and most of all, let’s resolve to trust in our pessimism, our personal yin and yang, as each struggles for dominance…

Featured Release:

“Out Of This World”
Another “Sounds Of Out Times” recording by Cook Laboratories.

Presented here following a Merzbow track and as a tongue-in-cheek precursor of Power Electronics, this fascinating record was released in 1956. I was going to be a bad boy and just play the audio track and make up a lugubrious artist and title and send all my friends into a rush looking for their own copy. But the rest of the record was so much fun, I just kept it all in.

From the liner notes:


Featured Artist:
Gershon Kingsley & Jean Jacques Perry

I was lucky enough to obtain three LPs by these prolific artists in a 99 cent bin at our local cool record chain. These records are wacky fun but also the stuff of genius. I featured a few tracks from each, see the playlist above. Right click on any of the album covers below to see a larger version of the image.

German-born Kingsley fled Deutsches Reich to Israel and began his career in music as a pit conductor for Broadway musical shows after graduating from the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music. Perrey was a French accordion player and medical student who abandoned his studies after meeting Georges Jenny in Paris in 1952. Jenny was the inventor of the Ondioline, a vacuum tube-powered keyboard instrument that was a forerunner of today’s synthesizers and was capable of creating an amazing variety of sounds. Its keyboard had a unique feature — the keyboard was suspended on special springs that were capable of introducing a natural vibrato, if the player moved the keyboard from side to side with the playing hand. The result was a beautiful, almost human-like vibrato that lent the Ondioline a wide range of expression. The keyboard was also pressure-sensitive, and the instrument had a knee volume lever as well. Jenny hired Perrey as a salesman and demonstrator of the new instrument. As a result he came to the attention of French singer Édith Piaf, who sponsored him to record a demo tape that later facilitated him access to work and live in the United States between 1960 and 1970.

Perrey and Kingsley came together during Kingsley’s stint as a staff arranger at Vanguard Records, an independent label in New York City that specialized not in avant-garde music, but in folk music. At that time, Perrey was experimenting with tape loops, which he had been introduced to by the French avant-garde musician Pierre Schaeffer. Each loop was a laboriously hand-spliced assemblage of filtered sounds, pitch-manipulated sounds and sometimes even animal calls. The end result of their first collaborative effort in 1966 combined Perrey’s tape loops, and his inventive melodies with Kingsley’s complementary arrangements and instrumentation. The resulting album was filled with tunes that sounded like music from an animated cartoon gone berserk. Their first LP was titled The In Sound From Way Out! and was released on Vanguard Records that same year. Since this was decades before the advent of widespread digital technology, each tune took weeks of painstaking editing and splicing to produce.
The twelve rather whimsical tracks bore names like “Unidentified Flying Object” and “The Little Man From Mars” in an attempt to make electronic music more accessible to the general public. In fact, “Unidentified Flying Object” and another of the album’s cuts, “Electronic Can-Can” eventually became theme music for “Wonderama,” a Metromedia Television children’s program of the early 1970s. Though most of the melodies were original, two borrowed from the classics. “Swan’s Splashdown” was based on Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Little Swans” while “Countdown At 6” borrowed from Amilcare Ponchielli’s “Dance of the Hours. The final cut on the album, “Visa To The Stars” is co-credited to “Andy Badale,” who would go on to fame as Angelo Badalamenti, arranger of the music in many of David Lynch’s movies. In contrast to the rest of the album, “Visa To The Stars” is a more serious gesture and lacks the unusual sound effects of the other eleven cuts. It is highly reminiscent of the style of Joe Meek and his hit, “Telstar” by The Tornados. Perrey’s Ondioline carries the melody throughout.

Their second and final collaborative effort came in 1967 with the release of Kaleidoscopic Vibrations: Spotlight on the Moog. This was a similar sounding effort, but instead of all original compositions, the album was mostly versions of popular songs of the day. In this album, Perrey’s tape loops and effects were added in post-production after Kingsley’s orchestrations were recorded, a technique now commonly used by electronic artists to this day. The album was one of the first to use the new Moog modular synthesizer, a massive, complicated electronic instrument resembling an old-style telephone switchboard. The album also bore two notable singles. In fact, the Moog album was released a year and a half before the release of Wendy Carlos’ ground-breaking Switched-On Bach. “The Savers” would go on to fame in 1968 as the Clio Award-winning music for a television ad for No-Cal diet drinks, and in 1972 as the theme to the American television game show “The Joker’s Wild”. About the time “The Savers” was being used on television, engineers with the Walt Disney Company were at work on a new parade at Disneyland Park, the “Main Street Electrical Parade.” The idea was to cover floats with thousands of electronically-controlled colored lights and to set the show to music. Paul Beaver and then later Disney musician Don Dorsey helped rework a Perrey-Kingsley composition called “Baroque Hoedown,” an upbeat, almost sparkling number best described as “harpsichord gone country.” It would become the underlying theme song of the parade for the next three decades at Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, Disney’s California Adventure Park and is still in use today at Magic Kingdom.
Several segments of Sesame Street produced in the 1970s also made use of music from The In Sound from Way Out, as did other television programs, such as “The Red Skelton Show.” A skit from the October 23, 1979 airing of Saturday Night Live titled “Jeopardy! 1999” used “Unidentified Flying Object” as the opening and closing themes.

Though Perrey and Kingsley never enjoyed tremendous commercial success, their music inspired a generation of musicians and was used (and still is used) extensively in advertising. Moog Indigo, a Jean-Jacques Perrey solo album from 1970 featured a cut called “E.V.A.” (also co-written by “Andy Badale,” aka: Angelo Badalamenti). This slow, funky track is one of the most sampled in hip hop and rap music history. In the U.K., pioneered by Kenny Everett, DJs extensively used their tracks as continuity music or took clips for use as jingle backing from the late ’60s and early ’70s. In the U.S., it is currently being used in a TV ad for Zelnorm, a prescription medication for female irritable bowel syndrome. The same album produced “The Elephant Never Forgets” which is still being used as the theme of the Televisa sitcom, “El Chavo del Ocho.” Even the Beastie Boys (who asked permission from Perrey and Kingsley) used both the title and cover art of P & K’s first album for their own The In Sound From Way Out! album in 1996. Gershon Kingsley’s biggest contribution to mainstream pop music came in the early 1970s as the composer of “Popcorn,” the single biggest hit of the German phantom-band “Hot Butter”, led by American Stan Free.

Their work for Vanguard is available on a three-CD set called The Out Sound From Way In! The Complete Vanguard Recordings. The bonus CD features two remixes of “E.V.A.” by Fatboy Slim, remixes of “Winchester Cathedral” and “Lover’s Concerto” from Kaleidoscopic Vibrations as well as “Electronic Can-Can” and “Unidentified Flying Object,” each by techno artists Eurotrash.

Perrey has released four new CDs since the year 2000: Eclektronics – recorded in 1997 with musician David Chazam (Basta, 2000), and Circus of Life – recorded in 1999, with musician Gilbert Sigrist (PHMP, 2000). Perrey released The Happy Electropop Music Machine (2006), and Destination Space (2008), with musician and arranger Dana Countryman.

Perrey lives in France, and is in high demand for lectures and concerts all over the world. In August 2006, Perrey gave a concert tour with Dana Countryman, of Seattle, San Francisco and Hollywood, to support the release of “The Happy Electropop Music Machine” CD. Perrey performed in Russia, in April of 2007 with David Chazam, and Perrey and Countryman did a concert in Norway in September of 2007. In 2008, Perrey and Chazam performed in Bucharest, Romania, and in 2008, Perrey and Countryman gave concerts in Newcastle, England, New York City and Montreal, Canada to support the release of their “Destination Space” CD, also on Oglio Records.

Gershon Kingsley lives in New York City, and in 2007 was a featured performer, and received the “Lifetime Achievement Award” at “MOOGFEST”, an annual celebration of Dr. Robert Moog and his synthesizers.

Jukebox Heart 018: Jukebox Heart Is Not Bitter

Happy Valentine’s Day, Jukebox Heart style. Originally inspired by the stench of dead rose water and the flying shards of a shattered vase, by the shocking gross-out discovery of tiny worms in the chocolates after you’ve eaten half the box, by the sudden panic of a pathetically miscalculated Valentine card striking seconds after leaving the post office, and by the resentful misdemeanor of another’s relentless, unassuming popularity, these 22 tracks capture the essence of a Valentine’s Day gone horribly wrong. These are the divas of Jukebox Heart. These are not your typical divas – no Babs or Billie or Judy or Liza. Rather, these are, for the most part, the women scorned, the hoofers climbed over by the likes of Joan Crawford, the never-would-be’s, the Valentines that never came. These songs go for the jugular with a crippled, vulnerable warble, a single broken note, or a gravelly, throaty melody suggesting the passage of years and the consumption of many things illicit – all for the sake of a love gone bad. For best listening, one should be lying on one’s back, in a dark room, smoking vertically poised cigarettes, with a nearly full ashtray balanced on the breastbone beside a half-empty tumbler of boozey goodness. Click on the arrow below to hear many a torchlighter croon, and click on her picture below to learn more than you ever wanted to know about her music. High marks will be given to anyone who can identify – before looking! – all of the ladies below. Extra credit if you have tears in your ears from lying on your back, crying, sighing and dying. All of these are presented in their original format – surface noise be damned – for that extra touch of historical sincerity. Each page opens with the single track of the artist, too, to help you match the face to the song. Savvy listeners will also know how to download the individual tracks for their very own as well..

Jukebox Heart 017: The Death of Human Speech

Jukebox Heart 017: The Death of Human Speech
73:48 | 67.5 MB

“The way the WT-4 robot speaks is similar that of the human species of generations ago, before speech was supplanted by modern and more efficient means of communications such as text messaging and internet chat: air expressed from the lungs vibrates the vocal chords, while changes in the shape or position of the tongue, lips, and teeth form the vowel and consonant sounds.”

If you’ve been paying attention, you have noticed that every time Jukebox Heart issues a new full-length podcast, the mysterious, often lugubrious titles are linked in some way to the audio contents of the podcast. Often, a common thread based on that link weaves its way through the entire mix, sometimes obviously, but more often than not, not. As I was selecting tracks for The Death of Human Speech, myself shut off from the interactions of human speech by the virtue of my iPod earbuds, the truth of the title became apparent to me when my son, who was back in town for Spring Break, sent me a text message, asking me when “Wen dinr?” I was in the kitchen preparing a Mediterranean feast of Avgolemono, Kibbeh on a bed of Tabouleh, and Zucchini with Lupini Beans. I texted back “~5”. Where was he? Ten feet away from me in the living room. The Death of Human Speech, then, anticipates the collapse of language as we know it, and examines the role of speech in music, through its absence, through ironic misrepresentation, through its symbolism in the use of foreign, fabricated and distorted languages, through morphology and the fragmented meaning of detached, repeated phrases, and through, of course, basic speech itself. On the heels of the Death of Print, could Human Speech be far behind?

Jukebox Heart 016: Do We Owe You A Living?

It’s hard to believe it has been three months since the last dispatch of Jukebox Heart. Were this more than a one-man labor of love, that would probably be seen as inexcusable. Well, yes, it’s inexcusable anyway. Mea culpa.

We are back with Jukebox Heart 16, “Do we Owe You A Living?” The answer to that becomes obvious as you wade your way through the 69 minutes of this latest Jukebox Heart installment. The three month hiatus has led to a rather large backlog of music that we will be getting to here in JBH. Have Patience.

Big adjustments have been at play. My son left home for college, and hopefully has been spreading the gospel according to Jukebox Heart all over campus. It’s very strange not to have him around; it was always rewarding when I put some strange new sound on that would perk his ears up like a homing device. “What’s this dad? It’s cool.” What he doesn’t know is that when he was much younger, his completely unguarded reactions to whatever was on the stereo was sometimes the deciding factor of whether it was going to be included in my radio program on WZBC that week.

He will kill me for telling you this story, but his very first concert ever was Dead Can Dance, at the Berklee Performance Center, Boston, November 1990. Astute readers will say, “Wait. He wasn’t even born yet!” That’s fair. But he was seven months in utero at the time. Months later, after he was born, he was extremely colicky, sometimes screaming and crying for hours upon hours, and the only thing that soothed him was the music of Dead Can Dance, particularly the Aion album, which was played almost entirely at the concert he attended. Coincidence? Really? I don’t think so. So in this sense, the music is in his blood, from an even earlier point in his life than in mine.

But back to the issue at hand. Do you believe in self actualization and autonomy? Are you responsible for paying enough attention to your circumstances to see that you must dance to a different tune, that of a global economy or tightening market? Are you responsible for paying enough attention to make sure that you can dance to that tune…even when it entails taking dancing lessons? And you need to pay for them yourself? Jukebox Heart provides the drumming. Billy Idol showed you how to dance with yourself. James Brown admonished you to get up offa that thing. And Jukebox Heart invites you to dance. Do We Owe You A Living? Of course we do, of course we do. Owe you a living? Of course we fucking do.

Jukebox Heart 015: All We Have Is Kisses

Maybe it’s a latent effect of a distant post-Valantine’s Day stress syndrome that has me obsessed with songs about the vartious aspects of love that inform this edition of Jukebox Heart, but it’s true; I’ve been obsessed by love songs lately, not-so-silly and otherwise. Though now June, the fact that this edition of JBH has been in the can since March notwithstanding, VD is a single day with aspects so subtle and far-reaching that even now, months after the hit, even the most disaffected among us are affected in one way or another. Maybe it’s the chain of events all leading up to sweeping changes in my personal life about to unfold that have me needing a little more warm-fuzzy stuff in my music lately. Maybe it’s my deepseated personal distrust? Mabe I’d better shut my mouth, since the angels are listening. But whatever, the Jukebox Heart mix has always been a snapshot of what’s been hitting the decks lately and this collection simply reflects what has been heard around the house, in the truck and in the office over the past few weeks. Love songs work best, in my opinion, when they don’t just simply nod with a stoopid grin in deference to the many splendored thing, but are most successful when they debunk it, deflate it, destroy it, dismay it, discard and otherwise defecate on it. I think you are getting my drift. Splendor, schmlendor. And now, with a nod to Man Ray, we bring forth Jukebox Heart 015, “All We Have Is Kisses”, possibly and ironically the most accessible Jukebox Heart mix to date. I get very territorial when I get in one of my moods. *wink*
