by Brian Turner:
Tom Smith has been somewhat busy lately curating an obscene amount of home-made mashups on his To Live In Shave in L.A. blog (a recent fave: Sha-Na-Na Vs. Pulse Emitter); his latest (as of noon today, there could be about 45 more up there by this evening) blurs the lines of two actual TLASILA recorded performances here in the WFMU studios. I actually hosted them three times here; basically they love the carefully prepared braised pig belly and stuffed trotters I whip up in the FMU kitchen and just keep coming back. Tom on the dastardly DNA scramble to celebrate our Free Music Archive project by distorting the mirror from within our own Moose Room:
To commemorate WFMU's selection of our September 5, 2006 studio session as part of their permanent Free Music Archive, I've thrown together a mashup EP of both TLASILA's '06 and 2007 visits to their august domain. Many thanks to Brian Turner and Jason Sigal, 'FMU's Licensing Director, for thinking of us...Our 2006 session featured Ben Wolcott, Rat Bastard, Andrew W.K., Chris Grier, Don Fleming, Graham Moore, and me. The 2007 session was performed by Chris, Rat, Graham, Patrick Spurlock, former Peach of Immortality roustabout Mark Shellhaas, and erstwhile Ill Humor succubus Kelly Jamison. (Mark and Kelly perform under the sobriquet Truth Serum.)
