Here are the artists and comments about the radio program broadcast on No Pigeonholes during February 1986.
Compilation put together by Little Fyodor, Evan Cantor and the Walls Of genius group in Colorado in the mid 80s.Picture on cover is of composer Andrew Brennan and Evan Cantor.
The Simpletones ( from Sons Of Madness Compilation): some gritty and lo fi garage rock from a compilation produced by Little Fyodor.
Globin Tree Flip from Sons Of Madness Compilation): from same comp which featured many styles and goofball tracks. Little Fyodor still working the magic.
R. Michael Torrey: a fine voiced Santa Cruz ( at the time, now in Portland) singer/songwriter, multi instrumentalist who later teamed up with Charles Laurel and Eric Muhs in the group, Mata Rata. See what he’s doing now.
Sue Ann Harkey: a fascinating sort of avant garde “folk” artist who sings and plays some strange instruments in a strange way. I found her last.fm page for her current works.
Bat Lenny: Twin cities weirdo bedroom rockers associated with the Musical Transportation Spree on KFAI radio show. I cannot seem to find any current info about Chris Watrebury and Jerry Modjeski that hosted the show.
Wax Theatrix: Can’t remember much about this group unfortunately.
R. Michael Torrey: Mike played live on my radio show solo and also with Mata Rata. Good guy with much talent.
Uzima: very pleasing instrumental keyboard music by Peter Gullerud who is also a visual artist and poet. Did many tapes and CDs as well.
Catfish and Ken Clinger: Over the years Ken has worked repeatedly with poets and singers to ride over the top of his keyboards. Catfish was from Seattle I believe at that time and she incorporated a lot of humor and absurdist thought into her work.
Minneapolis/ St Paul strangeness from Bat Lenny and Limpid Green which was essentially the same personnel I believe but different name. Limpid Green was 1977-83 and Bat Lenny was from 1983 on.
Psyclones: Northern California duo of Brian Ladd and Julie Frith who did all their recordings live. Very trippy and stream of conciousness type rock and experimental music.
NoMuzic: Was the music project of Car L Howard who also ran the seminal label, audiofile Tapes. His own music was a post rock techno beating pulse with humorless and ascerbic vocals. At the time he was in New Jersey but has since moved to Ohio.
If, Bwana: the early work of Al Margolis on his essential Sound Of Pig label.This one was from the Sex, Insanity, Death cassette and has a very unique experimental bent.
Mystery Hearsay: squiggly electronic adventures from Memphis’ Mike Honeycutt. Mike has also hosted a long running radio program on WEVL. He also is an administrator at the Cassette Culture.net site.
