In 2009 I curated a CDr box set of experimental and avant garde recordings by different folks in my life that I love and respect. The whole dang thing is pretty spectacular (in my opinion) but an above and beyond highlight is the record that Mike Skinner put in the mix called ‘First Moment of a Lurch’. Its 24 minutes of understated terror, tiny-room tick-tocking, and tale-telling heart. I think its a masterpiece. Its not available anywhere else (and there are only 88 copies of the box set) so we put it up on soundcloud so everybody could enjoy it. If you feel so inclined… listen to the magic that Skinner made and zone out in a reverent 24 minute moment of silence. Headphones only make it better…

The imprint Skinner leaves behind is as wide as it is deep… and overflowing with brilliance, of which this is just one small example.

RIP Mike Skinner.

The time has come to light the flame. The scent of sulphur from spent matches hangs in the air, mingling with that of fresh cut flowers. You can’t say how long the drummers have been drumming. You anticipate the commencement of the ritual with excitement and trepidation. Who will I be in…

New ROAM, y’all.  Cover as always by me.  Incredible sound/etc work by lots of other awesome and fabulous folks.  Get spiritual!

Around the world in 20 minutes we go!

At ROAM we are no strangers to the intoxicating experiences of wanderlust. And that is why this month, as the summer bids farewell, we challenged contributors to create a piece of sound art that encapsulates a journey they have taken to distant lands…

A new ROAM is out!  Cover, as always, by yours truly.

Y’all gotta hear this. Crazy funny!

Q: Knock, knock.

Q: ROAM.
A: ROAM who?
Q: How the ROAM should I know!?… (cough)

For this month’s gut-busting episode the ROAM staff, in collaboration with legendarily off-color talk radio personality Cap’n Stan Beastin™, asked our group of sound comedians and…
