NCN - Totally Inappropriate Songs for a Funeral

Sep 8, 2018 00:30:00

Description:

This is a totally re-worked version of a long-since pulled 2013 concept show which just didn't feel complete at the time. NOW it is! And more on-topic than ever before. After our musical appetizer which opens this show (a 10+ min. version medley of many different 'Istanbul (Not Constantinople)' song versions) we launch into various and many, many inappropriate funeral song clips. These are inter-cut throughout with large post-produced chunks of Phineas Narco's appearance on KPFA's 'The Puzzling Evidence Show' on June 7th, 2013 with special guest DJ, Justin Credible and regulars Doug Wellman (Puzzling Evidence) and Subgenius Church co-founder Philo Drummond. They talk about suicide, Subgenius, JFK, Burning Man, 'ghost milk', the day Puzzling Evidence saved Darth Vader's life, meeting William Shatner, Janor memories, and the then-upcoming 'X-Day 16' preparations. With work by Evolution Control Committee (as DJ Pantshead), Faroff, Heppycat, Marc Johnce, Halo, Voicedude, PLUS many others! Not to be missed with any regularity! ACTUAL SubGenius CONTENT!! - 3 hour mix.

NCN - I Don't Know (2018 Redux)

Feb 22, 2018 00:30:00

Description:

Webcast February 18, 2018 and revamped from for 2018 but originally conceived as a 2011 Puzzling Evidence Show tribute, this became partly about Unions, including the uprising in Wisconsin regarding union-busting by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and his cohort David Koch (who is impersonated in a crank call to Governor Walker by writer of The Buffalo Beast blog). Other portions are some multi-layered talking by Phineas mixed with music and almost all of the 'old Doktor' SubGenius hierarchy in yak tapes from yesteryear and modern-day news about Middle East uprisings from the NCN album 'Party in My Mind'. The result sounds very Puzzling Evidence type of mix you can zone out on and appreciate as background music or as something to listen to attentively. Also a prank call to Sarah Palin, Al Newport, Randy Rainbow, nerdcore remixes, George Carlin, Bill Hicks, much Doug Stanhope and somewhat irreverent takes on mass-shootings and gun control. Much more. A special 4hr. redux presentation.

NCN - The Immigration Show

Feb 14, 2018 00:30:00

Description:

This was originally webcast on February 12th, 2018 and we peaked at around 27 listeners at that time. This is a straight up music and comedy mix all about immigration, immigrants and xenophobia: currently topical and yet universal and timeless subjects. There is some Trump-oriented material, but it's kept to a minimum. It is very U.S.A.-centric in its treatment of the subject matter, for the most part, although other portions of the program are more generalized in scope. It starts out with a collection of folk songs about immigration but starts to really rock around 20 minutes in. Some segments herein might be considered to be 'politically incorrect' or disturbing but are included as representation of some of the voices in this ongoing and important cultural conversation. Listener Discretion - A 3-hour program.

Fidd Chewley, Anonymous, DJ Cummerbund, DJ Twobeans, The Evolution Control Committee, Stephen McQuillen, among many others! Perhaps a symbolically prescient program since the U.S. Government closed its doors to the public a week after this program aired! - 3 hour program.

NCN - The 'Best' of Ambient Phone Trolls

Nov 30, 2017 00:30:00

Description:

This was originally webcast on November 19th, 2017. The basic concept is making a mix of prank phone call recordings set against a backdrop of changing (more or less) ambient music sound bed. The effect is both soothing and outrageous. **Note--much of this program is NSFW (Use listener discretion)**. We did four 3-hour shows, years ago, (Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4), about this which we listened back to recently and discovered many parts needed work or paring down, which we have done for this 4-hour ultra-megamix, a digest or distillation of sorts of the whole epic run: in a much more wieldy half the listening time format! With a bit more new material to boot. Includes remixed and excerpted work by inimitable Longmont Potion Castle, Touch-tone Terrorists, Jerky Boys, Crank Yankers, Richard Christie and Sal from the Howard Stern Show, Crank Yankers, celebrity soundboard recording pranks, Jerky Boys (of course) and excerpts from Lucius Tate, the classic 'Red' (Tube Bar) recordings as well as Ivan Stang telling the story of the Binney/Arny (Al White Motors) calls with excerpts from those as well. A special musical 4-hour phony phone call megamix.

NCN - The Monty Montgomery Memorial Music MegaMix

Sep 21, 2017 00:30:00

Description:

Or musical tribute, and our way of saying goodbye, to our old high school best friend, Monty Montgomery, who we learned, only recently, has passed away after a year-long battle with brain cancer at the age of 51. We mourn and miss Monty and remember him and his excellent and wonderful musical tastes with this special mix of music that he introduced us to and was very much into when we knew him and when we hung out together, 1982 being a key year. This is essentially a mainstream New Wave music mix, but for Monty--including many of the groups he followed and admired. In respectful remembrance, we share our memories and the music which defined and inspired Monty as well as being a key period in our early lives as well as in the history of music in general (circa 1982). - 3 hours. Originally webcast on September 3rd, 2017.

Enjoy this somewhat loopy all-remix version of the spudboys' work (with several versions of 'What We Do' as a running leitmotif throughout). Put together at the last minute, a day before showtime, as inspired by Stephen McQuillen, during a period that we tried to pry our brains away from Trump news in the first month of his presidency. This program seemed appropriately enough to be an obliquely relevant distraction for the time being. Playlist is in internal id3 tag of the mp3. - Over 2 hour show.

Jul 7, 2016 00:30:00

Description:

RETURN: This is the first in a multi-part serialization of our mash-up movie called FLOYDATAR, which we spent the better part of a year out of our lives putting together. The idea behind the project was to meaningfully combine the (edited) visuals of AVATAR (2009) with the (selected) music of Pink Floyd, thus celebrating both. We figure enough time has gone by since this has been released, premiered in the Second Life virtual online environment (and summarily rejected by both Youtube and Vimeo); and so we are publishing it on our podcast in multiple and sequential 'Parts' like a serial. If there is anyone left on the planet who hasn't seen AVATAR please, go watch it and find it NOW, do NOT watch this movie first! This movie is a transformation of that movie into a new piece, and does not represent AVATAR in its original form. Hell, the entire movie is not even fully represented! This is meant for fans of both the movie and the band PINK FLOYD, and seeks to cultivate synchronicity as we artistically explore, and symbolically comment on, the expressed themes that are common to both of these entities including: war, loss, love, sacrifice, redemption, madness, the value of humanity, the fight of the underdog, transformation (itself) and an overall psychedelic and other-worldly aesthetic hopefully tying this UNIQUE hybrid movie all together. For the first time in years: FLOYDATAR is back! You be the judge. - This program is NOT for sale and NOT for profit. Please don't sue us. Running Time for this (Part 1) is 7min. 14sec with more to come! Stay tuned!

Kind of a taboo subject, but well, hell when has that ever stopped us? A companion piece to NCN - Bootycore 2014, this program was originally webcast on March 20th, 2016--to about a dozen people--and hosted by (the late) James Mason, and features a wide variety of musical remixes and comedic treatments about humanity's favorite solitary pastime. An attempt to normalize an increasingly relevant cultural topic, in a hopefully tasteful and entertaining manner, by providing a cultural overview of its various treatments in music and comedy. A 3-hour semi-psychedelic 'syntopical' mix.

NCN - An Interesting Show About Boredom

Feb 26, 2016 00:30:00

Description:

Webcast on January 21st, 2016 on Plundercast and DFM out of Amsterdam - A show all about the universally undesired state of boredom: ennui, malaise, doldrums, 'blues', call it what you will--an exploration to find out what causes it, represent the current cultural conversation about it, and discover what (if anything) should be done about it. It's actually an INTRIGUING SUBJECT as it turns out: something found extensively in popular culture as well as psychological and philosophical studies. Re-contextualized examples, song clips, samples and effects, pour forth in this 3-hour psychedelic and hyper-edited collage treatment of the subject. Adapted from a less-developed 2011 program (boringly titled 'Deconstructing Boredom'), this jazzed up redux asks the question: Is boredom a mental quagmire, or a doorway to peace and ultimately an opportunity for existential enlightenment? Includes work from FU2, Contemporary Casuals, Supercut, Stylust Beats, The Bonzo Dog Band, 10th Dimension, many many more!

This was simulcast originally in the DFM Second Life Burning Man virtual environment at the time.

Not to worry, this program has a LOT of special information on them and advice on how to deal with and avoid them. A psychedelic audio documentary, this is a new, practical-minded, informative, deeply inspired, and one of the most worked-on and complex shows of ours in a long time... a vibrant cross-section of voices, at once musical, scholarly, historic, and artistic, concerned with psychopathy, sociopaths, narcissists, criminals, and the problem of evil in individuals, and in society at large. Is the world getting more psychopathic? Is the world run by psychopaths? And what, if anything, can we do about it? - A 3 hour mix.

We collected some choice rarities and pieces not heard for quite some time from Over the Edge and Negativland and composed them 'conversationally' using Don's own handed down technique. The result is a wild mix of mixes, bouncing from one subject to another, and always surprising, showcasing Don and Negativland's work since 1981. The apex of our memory lane mix was getting to in-depth interview Mark Hosler for well over an hour in the (more than) last hour of the program. - A 4 Hour Program.

Description:

This is NCN's adaptation of the show 'Breathing' that we did with Jon Leidecker (Wobbly) of Negativland and Puzzling Evidence (Douglas Wellman) on 07/17/2015 on Negativland's radio show 'Over the Edge' in Berkeley, CA. We were helping to fill in, at that time, for our friend and long-time mentor and Negativland member Don Joyce (1944-2015). This is representative of that show with some post-production/mixing/additional material added to/done on it including a new ending. This is the last Over the Edge show done while Don Joyce was still alive, and in the hospital, at the time, due to breathing issues. Don sadly passed away on July 22nd, 2015 from heart failure. RIP Don Joyce and Long Live Negativland! - 3 hour program.

NCN - The Art of Breathing (Part 2 of 2)

Jul 22, 2015 00:30:00

Description:

We are working backwards sequentially in this two-part show, which is in part about breath and breathing, and is also in tribute to our mentor and friend Don Joyce (of Negativland, who is currently ill with breathing issues) on The Puzzling Evidence Show. We will present Part 1 next week which will be the Over the Edge portion of the show. This program is made up of some post-produced 'Show' from earlier this week, on KPFA 94.1 in Berkeley, upon which NCN appeared, along with Puzzling Evidence and Wobbly (of Negativland). We didn't know the program was going to be about breathing until 20 minutes beforehand!

Jul 21, 2015 01:00:00

Description:

We are working backwards sequentially in this two-part show, which is in part about breath and breathing, and is also in tribute to our mentor and friend Don Joyce (of Negativland, who is currently ill with breathing issues) on The Puzzling Evidence Show. We will present Part 1 next week which will be the Over the Edge portion of the show. This program is made up of some post-produced 'Show' from earlier this week, on KPFA 94.1 in Berkeley, upon which NCN appeared, along with Puzzling Evidence and Wobbly (of Negativland). We didn't know the program was going to be about breathing until 20 minutes beforehand!

Jan 28, 2015 00:30:00

Description:

This program is about anger and was webcast on January 25th, 2015 on Plundercast and DFM. It is a hybrid show of the past un-released programs 'Escape from Anger' and 'Angry Music' along with some surprises from the current and recent era. This show seeks to be a cathartic release designed to soothe the savage beast-ness out in the listening ether. We are using the same graphic picture from the now defunct 'Angry Music' mix (sometimes these programs take years to truly develop into themselves). This mix spends time on remixed sequences philosophically examining anger along with inter-cut medley flourishes of mash-ups and other 90's era 'complaint rock' sets, interspersed with other tangential material - a 3 hour program.

The 1 hour radio edit of this program was heard on WREK in Atlanta on "Bob"'s Solacktime Funhouse. Originally webcast on Plundercast and DFM on November 27th, 2011 when we had to get that tooth in question extracted, this mix is remixed a little bit for July 09, 2014. Includes the piece 'The Klein vs. Gilmour Dentistry Suite' sprinkled into the initial comedy montage in the program. The suite compares Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour's guitar playing style to a dentist's drill. Much comedy in here (with some possibly NSFW language) as well as all manner of music, novelty songs, mash-ups, collages, various memes and comic commentary as well as some disturbing material all in this almost 2 hour and 37 minute mix.
