Review at Sadayatana #63

At some point after moving out to Houston I heard about a genre of music called "Chopped and Screwed". I always try to burrow into whatever local scene exists. If there is not support for the local scene there is no music scene....

Ya anyway, looking forward to my first taste of "Chopped and Screwed", when I finally heard some I was sorely disappointed. It's music that sounds like you're overdosing on cough medicine ya see. What the hell is the crap? [I asked myself.]

Recently we had some joking discussion in the irc chat room during one of the shows at "what exactly is Chopped and Screwed music?" I thought well, I can maybe find some that is ambient enough to use in the show. The result is as you will hear. This is kind of related to the Witch House show I did a while back: Another Room.

Experimental. A little weird. Don't take any of this as a suggestion that it's ok to abuse cough medicine. It's not.

Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically. The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habitats, to have new little hopes. It is rather hard work: there is now no smooth road into the future: but we go round, or scramble over the obstacles. We've got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.
