Batman Popcorn Chan Chan

Oh Messy Life – June 30, 2022 Show Notes

Track 1: Otoboke Beaver – Don’t Call Me MoJo

From their new album: Super Champon

Track 2: Célio Balona – Tema De Batman

From the KZSU A-File, reviewed by Telepathic Juan.

Track 3: Lalo Schifrin – Danube Incident

I feel a bit late to the game for only recently stumbling across this often sampled gem of soundtrack music.

Track 4: Rachika Nayar – Whateverness

More loveliness from the KZSU A-File

Track 5: THE ACHARIS – In the Blue Room

I first heard The Acharis from the Zum Audio Vol 4 compilation. This track is from an album I saw featured over on Nicholas Taplin’s Post Consumer website.

Track 6: The Breath – Something On Your Mind

Another find via a Bandcamp promo email.

Track 7: Tom Nunn – Boomtown Shuffle

Back in high school, not knowing anything about noise or experimental music, my friends and I messed around some, seeing what kind of noisy sounds we could record on random boomboxes and home stereos. But it wasn’t until KZSU DJ The Voice Of Doom invited me to help engineer one of the Day of Noise events that I really saw how far folks could push the boundaries of sound and music.

Among the artists I met during that time period, Tom Nunn struck me as being very serious about being creative. Hearing him talk about the design of his Octatonic T-Rodimba left an impression on me. I was saddened to hear about his passing and put together this set of his music as a small tribute.

Track 8: Tom Nunn – Voices

From his solo album Identity

Track 9: Tom Nunn Solo IV (excerpt)

This is an excerpt I took from a 12 minute track on a compilation called S3d (Ear & Eye)

Track 10: Tom Nunn – Popcorn Skatch

This one is a collaboration with Jon Raskin

Track 11: Aurora Josephson & T.D. Skatchit – The Runaround

T.D. Skatchit & Company consists of Tom Nunn & David Michala, performing here with Aurora Josephon.

Track 12: Billy Bang – Chan Chan

I found this on a dive into the music of the amazing Billy Bang.

Track 13: Cacho – Se Va El Matancero

I thought since the previous track was a Cuban composition I would play something from one of the legends of Cuban music.

Track 14: Caridad Hierrezuelo Y Conjunto – Saoco

And while I was in that mode, why not throw on a track by Caridad Hierrezuelo?

Track 15: Big Thief – Certainty

Closing the show out with one more track from the KZSU A-File.
