TOM BRADLEY, ASPHALT FLOWERHEAD, ETC

The awesome Tom "Lemur" Bradley, here in fine fastdump wordsquirt mode talking about all sorts of stuff (it's supposed to be an interview, y'dig; but Tom heads off into Tomspace as only Tom can...) incl. some yippage on Forrest Armstrong's incoming new novel "Asphalt Flowerhead" - which Tom edited and wh/ is v. imminent on D.W.'s soon-to-be-legendary Chrossing Chaos Enigmatic Ink imprint.

"For Fluxical-Concretical literature, Haptical-Fluxical, Concretical-Hapitcal, Fluxical-Haptical-Concretical, Ahadada are the only men. And I'm chuffed to be dunked in Duchamp's pissoir (that's their logo), paddling alongside such swimmers as Mark Spitzer, former zipper-upper of the Cyber Bag; Simon Perchik, "the most widely published unknown poet in America"; Ur-Ethnopoet Jerome Rothenberg; Richard Peabody, founder of the legendary Gargoyle Magazine; Daniel Sendecki, chronicler of lotuses among the land mines--and, most of all, Jesse Fuckin' Glass, playwright, poet, fictionist, performance artist, star of Filmgruppe Chaos, dispatcher of email messages that traumatize your intercostal muscles, and wielder of the monkey wrench that cinches the Ahadada plumbing..." Et cetera.

Go, Tom, go!

COTOPAXI (de / nl)
"Both schooled at a young age to be free with sound they manage to create interesting compositions almost out of thin air. Their approach is warm and positive resulting in a 'good times' feel that will leave a smile in the hearts of the listener, so in their own way they are making the world a better place" (Ernie McCracken). Cotopaxi is the cool duo of Hannah MOEMLIEN and Johann FYOELK from the great STENZE QUO tape label.

WAIKIKI WALHALLA (ecu / uk / be)
"Weaving continous threads of sounds, we shall draw you house and lake and crowns" (Mei Yi). Hypnotic compositions in full slow motion exotic mode played on the sweetest instruments. Second gig by this band featuring members of BUFFLE, SUNNY DISPOSITION and THE CONTINENT MAKERS.

SURPRISE ACT
No idea. But very special.

DJ COOL BROCOLI (be)
DJ Cool Brocoli is Robert Louis Stevenson's cosmic grandson, the most charming philosopher and story teller you will ever meet on your journey to the Samoan Islands (as it was told us by the Venerable Lama Sailor Scott Rinpoché).

DJ BONGO MAN (rdc)
One night meditating under the branches of his favorite baobab, Dj Bongo Man listened to the whispers of the sebene spirits. Be inspired by this sorcerer's teachings.

(Can't make it to this one because (a) I'm in a different country, and (b) I'm attending a party of my own lol...so I'm relying on you to go in my place!)

TWITTERFEED ON!

"Twitterfeed on!"

Johnny Storm streaks off into the NY skyline,followed by a trail of burning mobile-phones and net-books. Pedestrians curse and complain as they're showered by smoldering circuit-boards and blazing iPhones.

Okay, so this post is a Twitterfeed test. Now I just need to find some twits...er, I mean, tweets...er, I mean, twerps..oh, you know...people to read the damn posts.
