JOHN SINCLAIR RADIO SHOW 869 – PIPE DREAM BLUES

Episode 869 is coming from Radio Free Amsterdam’s Detroit headquarters at 55 Peterboro St. where I’m featuring another hour of music from the vast archive of reefer songs I’ve just received from a listener called Paul Paul, who says “I collect songs about marijuana and I have about 5000.” He sent them to me on a USB stick and I’ll be featuring material from this treasure trove of reefer music for some time to come. This week we’ll hear cuts by Fats Waller, Andy Kirk & His Twelve Clouds Of Joy, Baron Lee & the Blue Rhythm Band, Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Bea Foote, Don Redman, Bill Rogers, Trio Garnica Ascencio, Hermanos Bañuelos, Herbert Payne, McKinney’s Cotton Pickers, Lucille Bogan, Cleo Brown, Cow Cow Davenport, Tampa Red & The Chicago Five, Curtis Jones, and Josie Miles.

DAY OFF – Feat. Lord Beefington

A shattered window. 7.5 artists. An epic journey: An omnipresent fuck you between the tympanic membranes. The Fuck You Sound invite all…to help create a new unhinged world, at odds with the stink and stench of the traditional art and music corpse. Bands eat underwater buffalo wings on toast or a vegetable patch bay…. Deviant things, taboo things; Audio intercourse. We implore you to take a day off in 2018. 

The album squirms with remixes by chilly slashers ’Bogus Order’ and jungle don DJ Aries. This is not a release, it is an expulsion.. ‘The Day Off’ was scheduled to be a limited edition DJ friendly deluxe 12” vinyl back pack plus a digital package of the album boasting extra remixes, free podcasts, videos, avatar packs, digital artwork and other goodies. Space weapons. Hair clippers. Dog socks. Flea rights.

Caleb Selah: Former arms and fingers dealer. Formerly a stringed thing virtuoso now a crippled mess of a DJ who can’t stand and is psychedelically deaf in his right ear. You wanna hear him click his toes though. Born in Austin Texas, he can’t remember when. Selah hates genres, cream crackers, squares and most things. He probably hates you.

Lord Beefington, the 12th Marquis of Hackney: Born from hell fire, eats microphone cables and children for breakfast. He is rumoured to be the father of Lord Vader. Enjoys cutting dub-plates with his teeth and preventing violence with smiles. He spits pure lava, stand clear.
