Once again, I’m in the Hi-Life Room a bit early, so I decided to play the first 30-minute cut off Arvo Zylo’s re-issue of “333.” This is one hell of a listen, I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself, having missed the initial cassette run. I’ll be getting back to this disc towards the end of today’s show.
Gotta say, I’m happy as hell to see a documentation of live Chefkirk/Ironing actions in the form of “Life in Florida 2010.” I dig the interplay between these two, and really enjoyed their earlier album together on Hymns. I won’t hold my breath, but I’ll throw out a “hail Mary” request– how about Chefkirk/Ironing meets Shelf Life for a Eh?/Hymns double disc. Get Bob Marsh and Hal McGee to co-narrate, omg I’m ruining these pants. But seriously, that would be awesome.
Speaking of awesome, I’m currently blowing Southern Illinoisian minds with some Government Alpha, from the “G” volume of Zelphabet. I’m still amazed at how much traction this series has, I’ve been able to listen to many of the discs over and over. This particular cut has the added benefit of masking the annoying ground loop hum coming from our studio monitors right now as well!
