Short Descriptions for Mayhem Specials

What is the Old, Weird America?

Thursday Mayhem 1 1pm to 2pm
Hosted by Art Crimes

Longtime music critic and author Greil Marcus chats with Art Crimes for four consecutive Thursdays throughout Mayhem 2008. Greil Marcus first introduced the idea of ?The Old, Weird America? in his book ?Invisible Republic? (1997) which dug deep into the circumstances of Bob Dylan?s ?Basement Tapes.? The phrase has a life of its own now, becoming part of the folklore, much like the traditional songs that are at its core, and it?s also become the name of a weekly show here on KFJC. This week, Greil navigates as we take a quick tour through Old Weird America.

Double Standards

Friday Mayhem 2 4pm to 8pm
Hosted by Cousin Mary

Featuring 2 versions each of songs that are considered jazz standards. Have fun with musicians having fun with these tunes. Hear the infinite variety of improvisation in jazz and other genres as well.

I will front announce and back announce 2 tracks at a time ? then move onto 2 versions of the next standard. This could include straight ahead and avant garde versions, same chord changes morphed into another song, a second song that only quotes the first song, etc. Some pairs will be similar instrumentation, but most will be quite different.

The Sound of Machines Our Parents Used

Sunday Mayhem 4 Midnight to 3am
Hosted by Goodwrench

Electronic musicians love their kit, whether it be a bevy of ancient Roland X0X boxes, a Moog modular, or a laptop loaded with the latest bells and whistles. Some are so enamored as to name themselves or their tracks after a particular synth, effect, module, midi patch, whatever. This special is devoted to tracks/ groups named synthesizers, from electro-pop to the most abstract glitchery.

Heathen Helm Radio,

For more information: www.nationaltrainday.com

Kraut-Hop : German hip-hop music from Fettes Brot to Dynamite D

Saturday Mayhem 10 Noon to 3pm
Hosted by Johnny Darko

I will be playing all German language hip hop. My 1st German hip hop cd was Fettes Brot, and I?ve had a fascination for other German groups (Beginner, Sido, Bushido, Dynamite Deluxe). So far I have about 20 artists, and multiple albums from each artist, sufficient for a 3 hour set. I haven?t found any instrumentals yet for music beds, but I?m still looking.

Coolsville: the Henry Mancini Special

Saturday May 10 7pm to 11pm
Hosted by Gallium Arsenide and Mitch Lemay

Acid Burns Los Altos Hills
Part 1 of 3

Saturday Mayhem 10 11pm to 3am
Hosted by Goodwrench

The Roland TB-303 Bassline was a product introduced in 1982 as a bass line generator to accompany budding guitar heroes or one-man-band types. It was a dismal failure at its intended purpose, and thus languished in pawn shops and junk stores until rediscovered by some teenaged house producers in Chicago in the late 80?s. The 303, when tweaked, is capable of generating a panoply of otherworldy squelches and burbles, unique in palette, that wreak dance floor devastation. Thus was born ?Acid House?, ?Acid Techno?, or just ?Acid?. This special will trace the rise of Acid House in Chicago, its explosion in England in 1988, and its subsequent mutation in Europe and the States.

Hosted by Thurston Hunger and Daryl Licht

Through his efforts as a performer, composer, leader, and organizer, 1999 MacArthur Fellows selection, Ken Vandermark, has been exploring and working to expand the possibilities of jazz/ improvised music for over 20 years. To that end, the Vandermark 5 has been his flagship ensemble since 1997. During that time, varying line-ups of the Vandermark 5 have produced 14 releases, consistently delivering diverse sets of contemporary jazz, with material that strikes an almost perfect balance between composition and improvisation and which integrates a wide range of sonic elements from hard bop and blistering free jazz to slamming funk and searing out-rock. Join hosts Thurston Hunger and Daryl Licht as they present an overview of the history and recordings of this influential and legendary ensemble, which, now in their second decade, continues to evolve and create compelling contemporary jazz with an almost unparalleled passion and artistry.

I can't forget about Hawaiian contemporary music. 70's folkrocky bands Kalapana and C and K. Even Yvonne Eliman. Hawaiian music also has great singers like Dennis Pavao, Brothers Cazimero and Israel Kamakawiwaole, aka Bruddah IZ. If I could get an interview with a particular musician as well, the show would be epic for me. But if not, I get plenty music for listen to, no? I can't forget the talent that is out there now. From the rootsy Ooklah the Moc and Humble Soul, to Island Reggae acts like Natural Vibrations and others, the islands are packed with talent that also deserves some mainland respect. I will refrain from playing cheesy lame pseudo-island music, like say the Hawai'I 5-0 theme, but will play a lot of the unheard classics. With nice segueing beds, and a laid back tropical demeanor, this show will transport people, including myself. All Pau.

Cassette Culture Underground, Volume 2: The Japanese Edition

Saturday Mayhem 24 from 2-6:PM
Hosted by Nozmo King

From the late '70s to the late '80s, cassettes were king. The cassette culture was in part an extension of the mail art movement, and owed much to the DIY ethic. Before digital media, anyone with a cheap, portable 4-track could easily record a cassette and get it out quickly. Twenty years on from the height of its popularity, homemade cassettes are coming back into vogue.

In this edition, guest curator Mason Jones and Nozmo King explore the Japanese scene from past to present, playing obscure, vintage cassettes (and some vinyl).

The holy grail for your hosts is the hit we've all heard many times which turns out to be laden with mellotron, but there will be rareties, oddities and obscurities a-plenty too. And no mellotron show could be complete without an occasional slice of stately prog.

Now celebrating its fifth year, the Bellingham Electronic Arts Festival (BEAF) features a compelling roster of international, national, and regional artists presenting and performing a wide variety of electronic music, visual art, and installation art.

Over 40 artists performed during the April 26th weekend. This is a report on just a few of the sights and sounds witnessed during the festival. Highlights of the special include an audio/visual (using the KFJC video stream) performance by NoiseFold where the duo of David Stout and Cory Metcalf create and manipulate 3D abstract visual structures in real time, objects that automatically create associated sounds and then influence the form of the visuals in a sometime chaotic sometime melodic feedback loop. Noisefold will be interviewed and will describe their use of technology to achieve their unique blending of vision and sound.

Performances also include Paul Rudy, playing an electric cactus and much more.
