Patrick Vian | Bruits Et Temps Analogues

When I first became aware of Patrick Vian's album
Bruits Et Temps Analogues by it's release on Staubgold Records, I was not aware that this was a 1976 reissue because
Vian's expeditions to the soundscapes of jazz, fusion, electronica are s
o timeless and cross-genre.

In each of his titles, he builds up picturesque arrangements with the help of analog synthesizers, field recordings, percussion and all sorts of exotic instruments which never quite engage in classical song or instrumental structures, but always wavering towards an unique idea. Here and there it gets quite funky and you wait for the drums to go on the one, but Vian refuses the easy way, creating unique timeless sound paintings.

So, if you haven't been travelling in a while, that's the perfect Album to do so.

Various Vegetables Radio #55 | Whitey on the Moon making Politics of Doom

Media reports just in claiming that the President of the United States of Demon Crazy personally visited the Moon colony to assess the situation on-site. His first reports have just returned and he tells of the discovery of a forgotten race of white skinned people. Upon first contact, they agreed to support the President in ruling Planet Earth from a central lunar government. As responsible journalists, we now ask: Is it time to Fact-Check this story?
Nope…

Instead, we accompany this incredible event musically.
Following the cycles of space and time, we will lead you through the following stages

seduction, destruction, revolution and re-awakening

with musical examples from psychedelic rock, jazz and hip-hop.
For this project, we had the great fortune to be able to open a channel to a parallel universe.
From this, guests from past and present, such as Captain Beefheart, Sun Ra, Gill Scott Heron, Nina Simone, Mr Lif and Roots Manuva will tell their side of the story.

Various Vegetables Radio #54 | Boring House Music

In the current episode of Various Vegetables Radio we present very boring house music. It begins half-way promising with some jazzy approaches. A bit of Kraut, everything very cuddled. But then it becomes really bad. Cheaply produced, monotonous, noisy. Here and there singing, which sounds like the announcement of an answering machine. Everything very boring. We hope you want to get bored with us. Tune in! And eat your vegetables !!!

Mixed & Mashed by your very untalented DJ Octobird
