Gil Scott-Heron

April 1st, 1949 - May 27th, 2011

You will not be able to stay home, brother.
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.
You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip,
Skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be televised.
The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox
In 4 parts without commercial interruptions.
The revolution will not show you pictures of Nixon
blowing a bugle and leading a charge by John
Mitchell, General Abrams and Spiro Agnew to eat
hog maws confiscated from a Harlem sanctuary.
The revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be brought to you by the
Schaefer Award Theatre and will not star Natalie
Woods and Steve McQueen or Bullwinkle and Julia.
The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal.
The revolution will not get rid of the nubs.
The revolution will not make you look five pounds
thinner, because the revolution will not be televised, Brother.

There will be no pictures of you and Willie May
pushing that shopping cart down the block on the dead run,
or trying to slide that color television into a stolen ambulance.
NBC will not be able predict the winner at 8:32
or report from 29 districts.
The revolution will not be televised.

There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
brothers in the instant replay.
There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
brothers in the instant replay.
There will be no pictures of Whitney Young being
run out of Harlem on a rail with a brand new process.
There will be no slow motion or still life of Roy
Wilkens strolling through Watts in a Red, Black and
Green liberation jumpsuit that he had been saving
For just the proper occasion.

Green Acres, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Hooterville
Junction will no longer be so damned relevant, and
women will not care if Dick finally gets down with
Jane on Search for Tomorrow because Black people
will be in the street looking for a brighter day.
The revolution will not be televised.

There will be no highlights on the eleven o'clock
news and no pictures of hairy armed women
liberationists and Jackie Onassis blowing her nose.
The theme song will not be written by Jim Webb,
Francis Scott Key, nor sung by Glen Campbell, Tom
Jones, Johnny Cash, Englebert Humperdink, or the Rare Earth.
The revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be right back after a message
about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people.
You will not have to worry about a dove in your
bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl.
The revolution will not go better with Coke.
The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath.
The revolution will put you in the driver's seat.

The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,
will not be televised, will not be televised.
The revolution will be no re-run brothers;
The revolution will be live.

Soriah - Ofrendas De Luz A Los Muertos

"Soriah, which translates as “Milky Way” from Sufi, is the stage persona for the internationally recognized artist, Enrique Ugalde. Soriah’s craft is a blending of traditional Khöömei (Tuvan Throat Singing), tempered with Soriah’s own visceral force. Performances vary from being steeped in tradition and bound to its constructs to more experimental fascinations with electronic and acoustic accompaniments, and introducing Butoh and Ritual Performance Art. Soriah’s use of Khöömei as a transportive medium is an offering to nature in her own tongue, that of organic sound whether it be wind, water or the mimicry of animals."

I was going to post the three (of four) Soriah releases following a shoutbox request. However, just as I was preparing the post, I realised that they are still for sale. Pisser. Anyway...

Here's Ofrendas De Luz A Los Muertos (in an intentionally low 192 rip) that was released in 2007 on Beta-lactam Ring Records. If this floats your boat, you can pick two of the three at half price staright from Beta-lactam. Even better news is that there is new material due and a tour of the West Coast of the US and England later in the year...more info here.

...and here's the link...

Ofrendas De Luz A Los Muertos


Blue Moon!

24 hours and we're still here!


At the End of the Rope

Excellent double cdr on Chondritic Sound from 2005. No link for the label this time...the person that ran it has apparently fallen on difficult times. The site is still open but I would advise against buying from there. I lost a lot of money about a year ago...and although I've been told that everything will be sorted out, it isn't.

No sour grapes here! Chondritic Sound was (and hopefully will be again) one of the greatest DIY noise/experimental labels ever!

Volume Two



A few months ago, I asked James Keeler if I could post his material as Wilt. The only condition that he had was that I didn't post anything that was still available from labels or distros.

I have another thirteen release that I haven't posted:

You can find the Cemetery Road / Dead Electroniks 2cd, As Giants Watch Over Us cd, Radio 1940 2cd and the Dark Meadows cd at Ad Nauseam. The Damnation Helix: Zeitgeist Movement Vol. 2 is still around at Annihilvs. Monstrare / Wilt – Graveflowers and Prey For The Comet is stll held by .Angle.Rec.. You can find Scarecrow, the Recycled tape, Midnight Dungeon and the She Walks The Night 7" and tape at Crucial Blast. The Werewolf In The Black Space split with The Rita is still available from Cipher Productions. Finally, the new Wilt + Marax + Goose "Harshfields" tape is available from either Small Doses or Phage Tapes.

That leaves very little Wilt that I ain't got! If you are sitting on one of those few rare releases...please share!

Finally, MASSIVE thanks to James for being a very nice man! You can keep checking out Wilt's movements on The Institute for Organic Conversations
