Robert Ashley - The Wolfman

The title track is Robert Ashley's legendary 1964 room-clearing piece for tape, voice and feedback and is necessary listening for anybody and everybody who would be reading this blog. Etch this wrecker onto your brains immediately. Fleshing out the disc is a 40-minute-long behemoth from 1960 called "The Bottleman" (made as the soundtrack to a film) plus a 1957 piece called "The Fox" which was Ashley's first electronic music. Compiled and released as a CD by Alga Marghen in 2003.

The Wolfman is indeed essential listening since its one of the strongest Noise Pieces i have ever heard....
I am looking forward listening to the other pieces!

Don't know how you keep on doing it, but you do. This is officially the greatest ever music blog.
