All the records for this show were found on a flea market on the same day as the program was recorded.
And so it begins …May 2001.. A friend of Adrian, Saulius was employed as a catholic priest for a testcard performance installation ‘inside’ a Lewes Church as a graveyard for computers using early pattern recognition s/w (big eye from Steim). The audience were literally invited to destroy the computer graves with hammers. Babies crawled on a floor of smashed monitor screens and a big cross made out of TVs was constructed as a centrepiece. Note the remnants were unceremoniously buried afterwards in a crypt in the actual cemetery outside and are almost certainly still there if anyone fancies a piece of grave robbing history…
Feb 2016.. A day with Saulius in Prenzlauer Berg, a tour of record and toy shops, coffees, talking, walking, never could he know it was the last day he would see him alive.
’39 years ago we are teenagers, and the parents are out, and the girlfriend gets the speed right and plays a swamp rock record, music for fighting crocodile vampires.’
Next track story : Adrian recounts how he worked for Patti Smith when doing slides for her performance in a small venue in Brighton…and, while the sirens howl in the background, the tension builds up , the thoughts that burped up after that encounter.
The light switch.
Editing the ages.
The music starts to make sense. A farting piano sounds like a toy duck being strangled. Read out words. And there comes an extraordinary find: all life is love.
Nothing dies in nature.
Atoms just get rearranged.
