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…

Don Campau presents Big City Orchestra

Don Campau himself tells us this about Big City Orchestra “I don’t exactly recall how I came into contact with das but it was inevitable.

And one by one they seem to pay tribute to James Last, as if the music they make is not too far from his. And before you know it you are in the middle of James Last’s Funeral Party. Happy…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show (episode 1)

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show is a puzzling portrait of the Berlin subculture era. Present day voices state that there is no subculture. But those are present day voices. Lord Litter raised from the ashes of post war Berlin and went through the grim cold war era, only to emerge in a brave new town. Subculture then was a territory occupied by the untouchables, a caste that was of no interest to the prophets of consumerism. Subculture disappeared because every sociocultural expression became marketable. Why this program? LL listened to…
