broadcast on KKUP, Cupertino
hosted by Don Campau
Man’s Hate, the project of Andy Xport in England. He also championed underground music with his ISC compilations.
San Jose artist and film historian Geoff X. Alexander. He was also the founder of The Roots Of Madness. This was his second tape on my Lonely Whistle label.
Southern California soundscape artist Randy Greif made many interesting cassettes, a couple LPs and continues today with his Swinging Axe label.
Ken Clinger: one of the legends of home taping in one of his many appearances on the show. Probably my most played artist of all time.
Roberta Eklund: she did piano improv, poetry and other interesting music.
Man’s Hate: this is still the project of Andy Xport from England. Andy produced excellent compilation in addition to his own brand of rock music peppered with social comment.
Geoff X. Alexander: a close personal friend and also the founder of The Roots Of Madness, a cult avant garde group that released an LP in 1971. Geoff also did his own music then, a combination of avant garde farfisa organ and “anthro”, a weird mix of ethnic and improvisation. Geoff also hosts the web site about academic film, 16 mm film of all types of historical significance.
Plato’s Nightclub: I can’t remember this band right now or where I got it from.
Randy Greif: one of the most interesting and creative of underground music makers, Randy used sampling and improvisation to create moods of fantasy and illusion. He continues still.
L’Edarps A Moth: Thomas Pradel from Frankfurt was the person behind this eclectic, electro project. He did vocals that were sort of pop with some zappa influence, a solo vocal tape, and I even did a few collaborations with him on my own releases. A real nice guy who dropped out of sight. Some info here.
Atomic Breathing Seminar: No recollection now.
Nudge Squidfish: Memory does not serve me at this time.
Timothy Gilbert: from Wichita but moved to England in the early 90s. Sporadically continued his own brand of bitter bedroom rock with tremendous guitar playing and growling vocals. A fine artist who evidently found some success in Britain acting. Had many, many tapes.
Mark Saucier: From New Orleans if I remember correctly. He did some wonderful and intimate folk rock I guess you might call it. Real nice but gone now too.
PJ Otto: Another blank spot for my mind, like the tide going out.
