Alan Bishop - Radio Moderna

Label : Alterity 101 - Alterity 2
Country : US
Year : 2013
Format : C44
In the annals of the Sun City Girls canon™, improvisation via devices such as the radio is not uncommon. Here, the humble contraption takes center stage thanks to the thumb-twiddling and spontaneous interjections of the Uncle Jim. Talk shows on the AM spectrum to mainstream hits on the FM spectra are not safe from the brothers Bishop. This reminds me of my early experimentations in noise-musicks, an abused boombox cassette deck was not safe in my hands. Anyway, don't expect the beautiful appropriation of traditional musics of the world of 330,003 Crossdressers or the (sheer) hellish carny miasma of Dante's Disneyland Inferno, but more along the lines of Carnival Folklore Radio. Still, the more Uncle Jim, the sleazier, cat.
