Review of Cleveland Confidential 7” EP by TOMMY DARK

HALANA #1 March 1996 (cover) CHRIS RICE, Editor with Ian Nagoski

  • Four excellent issues made it out between 1996 and 1999. Issue five was promised in 2004. Did it ever make it?  
  • This might be the best all around Trash Flow Radio episode we’ve ever heard. Ken and David talk at length - and we mean, at length -  about all sortsa topics of interest to Fuckin’ Record Reviews - the Jockey Club, fights at early Squirrel Bait shows, the relationship LaMonte Young, Tony Conrad, Henry Flynt, et al had to the ideas of John Cage, the Newport KY White Castle, Sluggo, Andy Warhol hugs, Guided By Voices brawling…and for a brief moment, maybe even Fuckin’ Record Reviews! And they say hello to Bela Koe-Krompecher, who was also there. 
  • Ken and David, we’ll be checking our gmail regularly. Love & Laughter and Hit The Trail deserve their place in the FRR pantheon…
  • More importantly, Duke University Press has just published David’s book Records Ruin The Landscape, where he “argues that, following Cage, new genres in experimental and avant-garde music in the 1960s were particularly ill suited to be represented in the form of a recording. These activities include indeterminate music, long-duration minimalism, text scores, happenings, live electronic music, free jazz, and free improvisation. How could these proudly evanescent performance practices have been adequately represented on an LP?”
  • Based on David’s Trash Flow presentation - and he sounds like one of the few people who can match Ken’s discourse, even when tackling the golden ratio -  it reawakened our interest in Cage, his ideas and their implications. Our book is ordered. 

world wide web: good (sometimes). kudos to the urbankill for the tip…

"When I first met Byron I remember we were both interested in bands that sounded like the Birthday Party, anyone who had that sort of influence…I can remember we were trying to chase down those bands. Ultimately it’s kind of stupid behavior. I don’t know what it really accomplishes."
