This was a show I really liked (not that I dislike any of the programs I do). Lots of fairly crazy stuff played today, which is maybe why I really liked the show 😄. Here are some of my favourites from this week:
"Misanthropic vindaloo" by the Avi Granite 6 from their new album, Operator. I'm a sucker for interesting or odd titles. The music is great too and matches the title.
"Vietcong" by the Gary Bartz Ntu Troop. Might be silly, definitely funny, though I think it was meant to be serious. We see and hear things differently looking back.
"Out-bloody-rageous" by Soft Machine, from the (semi) bootleg, Orange skin food. A shortened version of the tune, with some interesting stuff going on in the second part, different than it was usually played at the time of recording (August 1970, I believe).
"Six-handed Casio" by the Sao Paulo Underground. Like most of their stuff, just nuts.

I will be venturing to sunnier and hotter places for the next week or so and will miss two editions of Breaking The Tethers, March 27 and April 3. Sitting in for me will be Mickail Hendi. Many thanks to Mickail for guest hosting! You can join him both days at cjsw.com
or at 90.9 FM, 10 to 11 am MT. I'll return for the April 10 episode.
