Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – I hear a new world

A new world? Probably we need to wait another one hundred years to see that one in action, and maybe mankind needs a strong telescope by then. As for now we go with the world we have. Is it a nice one, a great one, a small one, a grim one, a happy one? You need to choose your own definition. But whatever way you define your world, I hope it is also a world full of friends. Here’s a couple of Lord Litter‘s friends. 1. Joe Meek – Glob…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show (Many Words)

A surreal story, a protest song – screaming, singing and dancing in the street, the Youth International Party…the Yippies! Wake Up America, Music is Revolution, Youth International Party manifesto!– ridicule religion, get high on oil, therapeutic theatre, anti-religion, and finally a guitar song that sounds like the old straight forward rock’n’roll heroin heroes that died of overdose….LL goes back in time, is that possible? Everything exists today. But … yesterday’s anger is today’s bliss. So, here’s Ken Montgomery again, together with Crystal Penelosa to visit LL and have a talk…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Manifesto

No description of the content of this show, the playlist speaks for itself, but the publication of Lord Litter’s ‘Definition of what I try with my radiowork.’ “I use the expression *counterculture*. The expression *Underground* was corrupted for the first time when labels like CBS released LP compilations in the late 1960s with the *original* underground. The result was that challenging Hard_Rock_Jazz bands like Chicago ended up producing schmaltzy radio stuff. *Indie* is a definition of bands/sounds that I basically avoid – I don’t think that I have *indie* bands…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Pop Opera?

Is this show by lord Litter a pop opera? What defines a pop opera? Tommy by the Who was an attempt. Autobiographical facts got magnified, altered and shaped into a grotesque representation. The movie looked like an acid fantasy. Is this show in a way a remake, or an allusion. The voice of Hermanos Guzanos coming out right at the beginning invites the listener, or rather visitor of this show to enter a world of horror and suspense. And yes, when you accept the invitation you find puppets come to…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Elektronisch

A gift by LL, a sublime show that puts contemporary avant-garde music and sounds in perspective. Listen to the tracks by A.G. Geige, an ensemble from Karl Marx Stadt in the former DDR. LL provides the link to a documentary, but wouldn’t it be a good idea if he could do a special on them, maybe have a guest at his studio as well? And what to think of the tracks from the Generator unlimited cassette release that close the show. A lot of voices from the past have proved…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Dans La Rue

People working in the street, a new gaspipe, a van parked, doors open, loud techno for everyone. What a relieve to put on my headphones and listen to the new Lord Litter show. Songs in every gradation, introverted, nostalgic, fun, loud, weird and a nice interview over a cup of tea to round it off. You don’t find people working in your street everyday of course, but if you’d like to take a holiday from your daily environment then this show is the place to go.   1. The NoMen…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Welcome to the Lord Litter Café

Where-in Lord Litter virtually reconstructs a bar in Berlin. It’s a place where people talk more and smoke less. There is no wi-fi signal, and the clients are encouraged to leave the smart phones and tablets at home. Old friends talk about old times, and when the new times press their noses against the window, also the spleen of today gets discussed over a glass of beer. The music that sounds over the thirty year old loudspeakers is produced in a garage or in a small home studio. No majors…

LORD LITTER’S RADIO ON SHOW – The Contest

Screaming men, guitar solos, acid and cocaine addicts, glam, B-movie, space ships, protest songs, fairies, Cecil B. Demille, it is all there. More dangerous than chasing pokemons in the street, more exciting than boiling a bucket full of popcorn, more entertaining than watching the eight o’clock news, more challenging than shopping at Aldi, here’s Lord Litter’s Cassette Culture Special. Start burning those tapes Now! PART 1 Facts, Myths & Lies of DIY music 1987-1993 Darrel Draeger’s cassette culture blog 1. THE RUDY SCHWARTZ PROJECT – Lynyrd Skynyrd Memorial Tractor Pull…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – The Don Campau Special 2

Lord Litter’s second part of the special on Don Campau leads us from the years of punk to the years of, yes what..transition? Our LL has selected songs that point out the skills of Don as a guitar player, but also as a lyricist. Starting in the early 1980s the compositions still follow the different genre’s of that time, but once the cassettes started to fill the postbox, Don Campau gives way to more experiments. I especially like the “complex” compositions that bear traces of the American musical, that, in…
