Liveblogging! “ITDE” 10/9/10

October 9, 2010

I’m really enjoying this David First anthology from XI Records! My recommendation– pick up a copy, play it loudly, and feel those drones push through the room.

I’m playing now from “Camaraderie,” a collaborative release from My Fun, John Ira Ebersole, and Kimberly Ellen Hall on The Land Of label. It’s a CD, paired with a lovely little book of Ebersole’s poetry. Of course, Hall’s amazing deign sense is throughout– if you’ve had a chance to check out any releases for The Land Of, you’ve encountered her work, and will recognize the style. This is undoubtedly a hallmark effort for the label, which I’m going to start recommending quite highly already.

At home, with Yamantaka Eye

September 27, 2010

Update: There’s some doubt that the person accompanying Yamantaka Eye in this video is actually Masami Akita, mostly spread by one dedicated commenter with a raging hard-on for finding mistakes made at STARTLING MONIKER. If you know the true identity of our Masami lookalike, let me know. But if you’re just going to fling your poo at bloggers, I’ll keep deleting your stupidity.

Update 2: Apparently, this commenter was so moved by the possible mis-identification of the interviewer that he has started his own YouTube account for the sole purpose of commenting on the video at that site.

Update 3: Comments are closed. If you want to help me correct mistakes on STARTLING MONIKER, that’s cool– just don’t start by calling me various names.

He’s being interviewed by Merzbow, too! This is some of the funniest shit I’ve seen all week. Absolutely hilarious to see Masami Akita so relaxed and being silly. Bonus points for Eye yelling at the propane heater thing.
