Short Descriptions for Mayhem Specials

E-Bow Music

Wednesday Mayhem 4 10PM-1AM
Hosted by Kai Sync

An EBow is a hand-held string resonator for guitars, resulting in the guitar strings resonance, the effect is reminiscent of using a bow on a string even if the resonator could be used with other techniques to produce very non-guitar like sounds. One of the most common examples of a known Ebow song is David Bowie's Heroes, even if there are plenty of other artists and bands that have used EBows to create very different kind of music: Bill Nelson, Opeth, Radiohead, Adrian Belew and Robert Fripp, Richard Barone. This tool has also been used in contemporary art music such as John Cage in his harp piece A Postcard from Heaven, Karlheinz Esslr in Sequitur VIII, David First and others. This special will play various bands, artists and composers where the E-Bow plays an instrumental part in the music soundscape.

The Nice

Thursday Mayhem 5 10AM-2PM
Hosted by Carson Street

Prog at the dawn of prog: Keith Emerson, Lee Jackson, David O'List and Ian Hague formed the group to back soul singer P.P. Arnold. They blended rock, jazz and classical music. The group's sound was centered on Emerson's Hammond organ showmanship and abuse of the instrument. They radically rearranged classical music themes, Bob Dylan songs and Broadway show tunes.

A Mayhem special that you can attend - be there!

Nilsson Schmilsson

Tuesday Mayhem 17 10AM-2PM
Hosted by Carson Street

Nilsson Schmilsson: American Beatle, substance abuser of major proportions and the great lost music genius of the 1970s. He had the voice of an angel (three-and-a-half-octave range), the ability to write hit songs and a wicked sense of humor.

He invented the remix album and the mash-up. Harry and John Lennon caroused around LA until Harry finally said? ?I can?t take any more pleasure, John! ? It?s gotta stop!?

Shoegazing

Friday Mayhem 27 6AM-10AM
Hosted by Kai Sync

This special will showcase the shoegaze music movement that emerged from the United Kingdom in the late 1980s and reached popularity in the early to middle nineties. This rock style is typified by extensive use of guitar effect pedals for distortion, feedback, delays and chorus as well as obscured vocals blurred with the musical parts to form an indistinguishable wall of sound. The term 'shoegaze' was actually devised by the British music press as a give to ridicule the bands who performed still during their shows, often with their heads down. It didn't help that the guitar players were busy controlling their effect pedals... Sometimes this genre is also called dream pop. By the mid-nineties the shoegaze bands where pushed aside by both the American grunge movement as well as emerging Brit pop bands such as Blur and Sueve. The last fifteen years there has been a renewed interest in this genre, now called 'nu gaze.'

This Mayhem special starts with finding the inspiration for shoegaze bands, even to the early days of psychedelic rock with effect use such as Jimi Hendrix (If 6 was 9), 10cc, Pink Floyd, Cabaret Voltaire, Simple Minds, up to Cocteau Twins, Jesus and the Mary Chain, A.R Kane, Verve, My Bloody Valentine, Loop, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur JR. and many others. We will also explore why shoe gaze disappeared, how it evolved in the background and modern bands that have shoegaze influences.
