Low End Theory

Aug 26, 2020 8:00 AM β€“ 10:00 AM

ZBC Rock

With DJ Ouroboros

Welcome to Low End Theory. If I were to describe the aesthetics of Low End Theory as a musical territory or space, its borders would be provided by doom/stoner/psych metal on one side, contemporary prog and prog metal on another, experimental/electronic/folk on a third, and enclosed finally by the long arc of classic and contemporary post-punk that bends towards dub. The mission of this radio show is to conjure a farrago of heavy sonic fictions of sound, words, and music appropriate and fitting to the heaviness of the times. But fear not, this Low End Theory is not dour or depressing; on the contrary, we seek out the joyful and ecstatic in the acoustic depths of the low end’s vibrating, pulsing heart. And who among us does not need some joy anchored in the deep sonority of the low end, especially now?

Welcome aboard the good ship ZBC, Saginaw

Shantra & King Cole wish to acknowledge the Magnificent Solar Return hovering on the Horizon, a Rebirth that only a true Oroborus can spin for itself.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:39:45 AM
Why thank you, Shantra!
ex DJ tamer 8:41:47 AM
I come here for the stoner desert rock, and stay for the Ayahuasca and the Magnificent Solar Return.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:44:28 AM
Welcome, ex DJ tamer!
shan b 8:52:36 AM
Oh I’ll join you in a cup of that tea, DJ tamer. I have a question for my favourite DJ though; Oroborus... I was snapped awake from a deep dream, my right hand filled with a ball of snakes who were starting to stir from a very deep and long sleep. In fact they had been in hibernation so long they had turned a silver gray, losing their vibrant colors. The energy jolt woke me up. What do you think it means DJ Oroborus? I get the feeling you know a thing or two about snakes and symbols.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:55:04 AM
The snakes are about to shed their skin and be reborn

DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:06:43 AM
In a tragic occurrence of synchronicity, I just read this morning that the lead singer of Power Trip-Riley Gale--is dead at the age of 34 :(
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:16:42 AM
Good Morning DJ Orobouros. So starts another day at the Z...
ex DJ tamer 9:17:12 AM
That's awful, two young musicians in one weekend.
ex DJ tamer 9:18:28 AM
(you mentioned Justin Townes Earle on your show earlier)
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:26:03 AM
Yes, the passing of JTE was also distressing.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:27:49 AM
You have to wonder, though, about how the cosmic deck was kind of stacked against him by the fact that his father was a smack addict and he was named after a brilliantly talented alcoholic who also died way too young.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:28:09 AM
Thanks for joining, Jaimie!
PeterC 9:32:35 AM

DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:35:14 AM
