04. reSEARCH – odes to invisibility

Installment 04. of what we’re calling The Research Series aired April-8-2018 on CiTR.FM.101.9.

The fourth of a planned forty-nine movies, each forty-nine minutes long, featuring no particular artist, working no particular theme, pursuing no particular agenda beyond boldly going … who knows? Or as Werner Von Braun once put it, “Research is what I’m doing when I don’t know what I’m doing.” And we definitely have no idea where all this will take us.

24. The Solid Time Of Change

Instalment Twenty-Four of the Solid Time of Change aired Saturday December-3-2016 c/o CiTR.FM.101.9.

Podcast (Solid Time starts a few minutes in). Youtube playlist (incomplete and not entirely accurate).

This continues to be Randophonic’s main focus, our overlong yet incomplete history of the so-called Prog Rock era (presented in countdown form) – 661 selections from 1965 through 1979 with which we hope to do justice to a strange and ambitious time indeed, musically speaking.

930. lucky man

“From the earliest, best, least over-played phase of the Steve Miller Band‘s million mile odyssey through the culture (it’s still going on, apparently).  You know it’s still the 1960s when it’s a white guy singing a sort of psychedelic blues and doing a relevant job of it.  Somehow that didn’t much manage to survive into the 1970s.” (Philip Random)

996. macho city

“Nobody was paying much attention anymore to the Steve Miller Band in the 1980s, which means pretty much everyone missed the spaced out analog synthetic bliss of the second part (everything past the three minute point) of 1981’s side long Macho City. Because it’s true. One of the great failures of the Twentieth Century was that it didn’t give us nearly enough spaced out infinite groove music, particularly while Ronald Reagan was in office, and (perhaps not coincidentally) the marijuana just kept getting stronger and stronger.” (Philip Random)
