Dai Coelacanth – Linda Harris and the Paranoid Lungs

Local kids burnt down the school. Got the jitters. Sought a necromantic solution. Nancy promised them a hundred years of rain. Too late. She was busy unspooling the tapes.

The main character had never known anything different. She sat in her bucket and grew a single hair. Buy Dai Coelacanth’s new cassette here.

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Berlin 2078

Compiled when the Sun fell down on Berlin and burned all streets and buildings. Luckily we could escape in time and watch from our ice tents how the lakes evaporated, and a big cloud of darkening dust covered the horizon. The heat was sharp as a needle. It could carve grooves into a crystal disk. LL played it on this show. 1. Don Campau – kwashiorkor – CD-R – Panoply 2. Ear Sculpture – B​-​Machine Gray 1a 3. Ear Sculpture – Grasping the Nettle 4.

Alan Dunn & John Hyatt – The Ballad of Ray and Julie

A couple of tapes in a shoebox found on the street, it might as well have the point of departure for The Ballad of Ray and Julie. But it was not.

The result is a reconstruction in various forms. There wouldnot have been a result without the involvement of knowledge. “Life is solving problems” said Karl Popper. I forgot…

We had been on the planet for twenty years and had failed to establish ourselves. We were there. We were alive. We were regressing. Susan’s…
