I was planning to release this in February. But, I finished mixing it ahead of schedule. So, I will put it out there now, instead. Isn't that nice?
As usual, this is a mixture of old and new sounds, some recorded by myself, some appropriated. Then, mutilated and mangled into something different.
Hal likes reading more details about my work. I'm ambivalent about always knowing how the sausage is made. But, I guess that will include some tidbits here; To start, there are machine sounds, including a washing machine with a pair of shoes inside. There are my vocal sounds being stretched and torn apart. There are improvisations from my teenage years on a guitar I built from somebody's garbage. Some old cassette tapes that I've kept in storage FOREVER had radio and TV stuff that I messed around with. By the way, I sometimes dub over my old demos and field recordings when making RecycleTapes for y'all. There were a bunch of leftover outtakes sitting around from my short movie "I Dream of SpaceCat." So, I remixed those into something. One plunderphonics-type track was originally created, on request, a few years ago for a friend's podcast Truth Porn Militia.
Some of this I wasn't sure if I should include it in the next Mike Nobody / Theee Urban SpaceCat cassette-zine or here. But, I have enough of this sort of thing already saved for that. I need to continue fleshing out my existing demos some more and get that thing published already.
Anyway, I'm still keeping busyl. So, "Haste Ye Back" guys!
MIke, congrats on your new release. As someone who reads the labels on hot dog and sausage packages, I appreciate reading some of what went into Psychic Tension. Just adds even more to the listening experience. Frickin great!!!
Very good! I love.
Mike, if you get the chance, check out Hal’s latest assemblage, it is HAPPENING again. There is a shout-out/tribute to you and Belch Fu Master from me layered in the mix. Keep turning the junk into punk!
