Lucifer - Black Mass

now this may sound like a sinister title, but I assure you that it's no more frightening than waiting in line for space mountain. it's an odd little electronic record from 1971. for the most part it's fairly dated, but the second track gets pretty rhythmic and almost reminds me of IDM. there are lots of moog sounds here, so if you want something kitschy to put on for the holiday season, I highly recommend this one.

I know I've been putting lots of weird old electronic records up, but as far as things that are so obscure that I don't have to worry about people losing money from my posting, there's a whole lot of this stuff out there. I'll try to put up something a little more accessible next time. in the meantime, enjoy the creepy goodness!

Video - from the Joon scrap book

this video is kind of old now (about a year and a half, I think), but it's a funny little artifact from our time as a three piece.

Georges Rodi - Electronic Sounds

Here's a weird old record of library music. It's almost entirely electronic (one track has guitar) with some pretty cool arrangements. I think it's from Italy, but that's just a guess. I don't know anything about Georges Rodi, so if anyone has any information about him, please comment and let us know!

Fine Journalism

This morning I heard a news anchor use the phrase "a whole 'nother". I was confounded, really. I'm sure many of you could venture to guess which network I was watching. I'll give you a hint: it rhymes with rocks, as in "dumb as a box of..."

It's only a matter of time before Mike Judge's prophecy comes true.

Synthesizers Unlimited - Electrik Bazaar

Here is a bootleg of an unreleased, uncredited electronic funk fusion band from France. Apparently it was recorded in the early seventies (I think 1974). The Only name attached to it is Anthony King, of whom little is known. The music is surprisingly modern (especially the opening track!). Don't be surprised if you hear this sampled in the near future.

Missing No. - The Clatson Winic

Missing No. record their own sample sources. I'm not sure how they do it, but they make incredible electronic music out of their own home recordings. I guess I'd call it bedroom IDM. Be sure to check out the track IDX, which is a personal favorite.

Jay Tholen - Your Sonic Residence

One of the more talented and prolific artists in our area is an electronic musician by the name of Jay Tholen. This is probably my favorite of his e.p.'s (he has a good handful of them). Download it and enjoy!

Go, Fi, Go, Fi, Go.

I am Shayne. I play in a band called Joon. I am also in the process of starting a band called Walking Catfish, but that's sort of a slow-going process. I have a friend who plays with me in Joon. His name is John. He will be posting here as well. Together, we will tell you about music we love, music we make, and about other good music from our area. There will be lots of FREE MUSIC posted for download, but it will be posted with permission from the artists or will just be so darned old and/or obscure that copyrighting won't be an issue. Guilt Free Good Music, ya hear?
