25 ways to kill a piano
1.5hr of old skool rave
In the 1990s, Two Russian-born, US-based conceptual artists calling themselves Komar and Melamid created what they intend to be the world's most unlikeable song. The 22-minute opus is assembled from a palette of elements determined (through a poll) to be the least desirable aspects of songs, and includes things like an operatic soprano rapping about cowboys over a tuba-backed bassline and bagpipe breaks, a children's choir singing inane holiday ditties and advertising Wal-Mart, and someone shouts political slogans over elevator music. It is, in its own way, awesome.

"How good is this? Restores your faith in human nature it does sir.... I offloaded a box of old vinyl onto Gutta as part of the extensive Doppelbase relocation project. It's good - I don't mind... a little bit of culturo-material detriutus floatin' away... a bit of the past relinquished..... positively Buddhist it felt.... it's ok.. And then, like something dredged up from the Jungian collective conscious, a bare two days later, Gutta pops up with a bit of mp3 mixery-wizardry and there it all is: history resurrected shiny and new. Three cheers to you Gutta sir!"

"Also, I'm playing a 'Covers and Kazoos' DJ set at The Bell, Jamaica Street, Bristol on Saturday 17th May.
I'm going to try an experiment and stream the set at the same time if I can get a wifi connection there. Perhaps call it Skip to The Bell (end). Not my joke btw.
Hopefully see you down the pub on the 17th.
