For the last show of the year, which also heralds the second anniversary of Fractal Meat, my studio guest will be Sam Underwood with a special Xmas selection of fractal turkey meat.
Sam’s selection will be drawn from archives such as WFMU’s 365 Days Project, Music for Maniacs and The World’s Worst Records. Ever since hearing Mr Bungle’s eponymous album at the age of 16, Sam has had a mild obsession with plunderphonics using the weird and amusing material people produce on religious grounds, for public service announcements or as an attempt at music making. We will discuss this further and hear a few of the pieces he has selected for us.
I also have a few tricks up my red, fur trimmed sleeves including a circuit bent Wham! Xmas cover version, a four-guitar drone work derived from a carol, and a special mangled Crimbo message from Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five!
