Episode 51 - Lil White Bitch (PART TWO)

The sun mocks the void which is home to the Hotel Bardo, and dawns warmly once again on the Earthly office to bring you and interview from Birmingham’s most premier enfants terrible. The collective body of Lil White Bitch, with its many busied limbs, has been pounding on the psychic doors of this city’s citizens at live performances since 2017-72, and released an album on the Earth Libraries label called F+, which is a deep and chunky dive into the tanks of questionable secrets you keep hooked up to the toilets in your house. The sounds you flush don’t go away. There are several prime cuts from F+, invocations of Lono, conventional magick, and a tour of the Endless Bed and Breakfast area of the Earth Hotel on this episode of your Art-Propaganda Podcast for our stricken times. This episode somehow ended up too large to upload, so it’s a two-parter.

minisode V - Bob McKenna (Clubhouse on Highland)

This is a magical and inspiring interview with a man who is of the bravest of hearts I have had the pleasure of knowing. Bob McKenna operates the Clubhouse on Highland, an elegant wedding destination in Southside Birmingham, which, we come to find out, also serves as a nexus of loving and expansive endeavors of all kinds during the week. Bob has worked as a clinical psychologist, and according to an unbiased review of one of his wedding clients, is a “prince of a man,” a sentiment I will enthusiastically second. In this interview we talk of struggle, compassion, our pervasive curiosity and hope for the future, and how to form a business and a life around the mission of love. Book your wedding or art show or function of any sweet kind at the Clubhouse on Highland, with links below. 

Music for this episode comes courtesy of my bill-mates at the Nick back in March, the esteemed Polly Panic (Asheville), and Poly Action (Austin). Murder of Jane Crow also joined us, and you can hear all about their work on our own Episode 27. First is Poly Action with their eponymous song recorded live at DZ Studios outside of Chicago in Hickory Hills, IL. After the interview we’ll ride out the feelings with Polly Panic’s cello-monium in the track “Purpose.”

Thank you for listening, as we rejoin you in the interview room at last. To progress, to purpose, to the future. Semper paratus. Welcome back to the Earth Hotel. See you back in the Lobby on Sunday.

From the Desk (III-24-74_2019) Inner Lobby Prologue

From the Desk - #1 (III-23-74_2019)

I didn't go away, friends. . . .

As I bring this operation back into equilibrium, I hope that you remain open to the transition. I seek to sew up the gaping wounds in the body of our operation, and help them heal and reform. I have a few practical changes to make:

As we re-establish this remote base of operations, we will be finding active agents and recalling previous contacts to join us in extended conversation, which we will air as independent installments. I want these conversations to be open-ended and untethered from the previous constraints of being the focus of a full episode. There are many people to talk to, and we will release these as they occur, hopefully at a rate of several a month.

Apart from these recorded instances and curated programs such as the long-delayed continuation of the Scott Walker analyses, we are continuing to illustrate and collect our experiences and those of others on the collective plane.

The Inner Lobby is a currently living project, and the workable details are coming together. The first three stories, if you happened to catch them in the last three episodes, served as a quality Alpha test and proof of concept. We maintain that the entries are accurate and they remain to be explored as we return to them. However, we must begin from where we currently find ourselves.

Our fourth entry in the Inner Lobby story was lost prior to broadcast, and must be re-constituted before it is re-released. We would like to check in periodically with these stories, on a nearly-weekly basis, as the stories are collected, verified, and transmitted. Once our equipment and full operative capacities are restored, we aim to provide a feature episode once a month with significant heft, most likely centered around a musical or extensively creative guest with whose work we can spend substantial time, as we've tried to do with previous interview episodes. This leaves plenty of time to include the fiction experiments, further forays into cut-ups, dramatic or serialized fiction and performances from outside sources, and the wealth of new music from our local quarter and abroad.

In short, we'll be staying engaged in frequent, manageable installments.

Consider this the prologue to the Inner Lobby proper, with more to come. In the future, if I have announcements, dates, or news otherwise, I will be making shortened versions of this type of address From the Desk, generally early in the week. By the time you're hearing this transmission, I'll be sitting down with a brave soul to break down their efforts in artistic autonomy in painstaking detail for your depraved entertainment.

Episode 49 - Calliope Pettis

The seat across the from the Operator desk is filled this week by Calliope Pettis, a songwriter and performer from the old Montevallo days who has come into her own since those Eclipse Open Mic nights. To recap after a joint gig at Tropicaleo in Birmingham, and in preparation for her appearance at Fork and Spoon Recordings in Panama City Beach, we sat down and had a vibrant chat about music, creativity, and breaking into new expressive territory.

Episode 47 - Jess Marie Walker of FLUSNOIX

I speak with the progenitor of the sound operation known as FLUSNOIX, the Birmingham installation of sonic artists who seek to communicate with each other and effect the good folks out there however they choose to be taken by the movement of air. 
Jess Marie Walker is the organizer and central cerebral hub of the improvisational group of musicians, and she has served in the ranks of the Southern avant-garde for many years. We discuss her journey from doodling in art class to performing complex multimedia art in galleries and exhibition spaces across the country.

Episode 46 - Julianna Richey (Visionary Artist)

On this most jubilant return to form, I welcome the apple of my eye herself to the show to speak to us about her time at the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art and how the transcendent can be captured on canvas. The future holds much art discussion and outward spiraling from this place.

Episode 45 - Joel Switzer

All avoidances will be attended to and repaid unto the souls of those responsible. Namely, mine. Welcome back to part two of our much-maligned Season Three. 
I was joined righteously in conversation by Joel Nobody, or the man who calls himself such, as I skulked away to a beach setting of tourist entropy. 
Joel maintains the churning machine that is Fork and Spoon Recordings of Panama City, Florida, at the heart of the southeast's experimental scene. Shortly after we were joined at Efficiency Fest on May 5 whilst welcoming improvisers from throughout the state, Joel and I broke the thing down. We have much in common and I look forward to hearing more of the sound from his world on the show as we go forward.
