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.

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 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.

The heat death swinging is all over and we return! There might be flies on you but there ain't no files that ain't backed up now so we can continue on the road of vantage seeking. My guest this week is a friend and former professor from my days in Montevallo, Alesha Dawson, who has gathered her own forces of words to bring forth the Screen Door Review, a quarterly compendium of Southern queer voices. We speak about medieval literature, the collegiate system, functions of learning, and how words have speakable power.

Episode 39 - Live! at Syndicate! The Heavy Children + K.W.B.

My friends from Montgomery, the two instrument-ers that make up the Heavy Children drove up to speak on the stage and display their fares across the frets and flams. We were joined by KWB, my old friend from Montevallo-way who added his stunning clarity guitar to the occasion. As a group, we yelled at each other in a productive, literary fashion, showed our disdain for the subject of my own design, and crafted a handy bit of promotional material along the way. A truly reckless and wacky experiment in live event-ing. 

You can hear the Heavy Children here:

More to come from KWB in the future!

Episode 35 - Jimmy Griffin of Renaissance Records

I'm joined by the venerable Jimmy Griffin, a local encyclopedia for music high, low, and everywhere. He works the counter at Renaissance Records in Birmingham, and we go for the record chat on music heritage and life-learning. A wonderful, warming conversation for these chilly times. No ado! Just you! All credits are used in good faith for the dead.

Episode 34 Pt. 1 - Milton of THEM NATIVES (and much more...)

This man Milton has had a varied career and an expansive experiences in the fringes of rock n roll, and he has emerged blessed, motivated, and shining from the glow of worship. We speak for almost two hours about the mysticism of music, the underlying structures of our collective meaning, and what exactly it is about valleys that collects eccentric people with excessive energy. One of my all-time favorite conversations. Features music from across Milton's journey, and you can find much more of it below:

minisode N - Frozen Yogurt Plays the Podcast!

I was blessed and moved to have these instrumental crafts-folk in the studio to record a unique performance for this special episode. I encountered Frozen Yogurt at a storage unit show featured on minisode K and didn't get much of their set recorded on that night. It seemed fitting to have the real thing in and get it from the source. Enjoy! You can see them live this Friday night at the Soft Rock Bungalow with myself (Jacquie Cotillard), the Dizzy, and illustrious KYLE the band.
