Low End Theory

Sep 16, 2020 8:00 AM β€“ 10:00 AM Start archive player

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?

Good morning, ZBC world!
PeterC 8:40:04 AM
Hey Andrew!!
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:45:12 AM
Morning, Peter!
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:45:33 AM
Thanks for joining, it was getting pretty lonely
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:46:07 AM
A taste of what I will be dealing with at my new 6 AM time slot, no doubt
PeterC 8:49:39 AM
But the new slot will be good for European Audience...not so good for the west coast audience..
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:49:48 AM
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:52:30 AM
Next week is going to be an adventure in terms of the flow of Wednesday's programming
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:52:46 AM
I'm glad you are going to be joining the lineup
Jamie Cohen (1) 8:59:52 AM
Good Morrow, DJ O!
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:00:15 AM
Thanks for the Procupine TRee!
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:01:20 AM
Good morning, Jamie.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:01:41 AM
You are most welcome. Every day should start with some Porcupine Tree!
PeterC 9:02:34 AM
Actually I've been checking some of the student shows this week and none of them seem to use chat...its just us...
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:03:08 AM
I really like it. otherwise, the experience seems pretty solipcistic
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:02:59 AM
Morning Peter
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:03:57 AM
The chat has changed the at home radio exoperience so much for the better
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:06:44 AM
@Jamie. do you mean as a listener, DJ or both?
Jeff Berlin 9:07:34 AM
so i can turn off chat today ?
Jeff Berlin 9:07:44 AM
Mornin' guyss..
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:09:27 AM
Morning. Jeff!
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:10:07 AM
I was hinking mostly from the dj perspective, but it's awesome as a listener as well. Stopping in to chat has helped with the isolation of the last several months.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:10:53 AM
Totally agree
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:10:38 AM
Mornin' Jeff
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:11:37 AM
May the Goddess Guide Us!
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:12:53 AM
As always!
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:15:01 AM
What do you have in store for us this afternoon, Jeff?
PeterC 9:18:21 AM
Just an observation...re chat..I agree w/ Jamie...
PeterC 9:19:28 AM
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:20:22 AM
It will be ok as long as they don't' trod on it, lol.
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:24:18 AM
did you guys see this, it's way cool https://news.artnet.com/art-world/stonehenge-acoustics-1905935?fbclid=IwAR2rriOrOUw4cLUuUB9rl4mHceNB1h_EjNZ6-9lBB8Dghpm_SxbaV69Hm9w#.X1_hQqdAuMY.facebook
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:25:48 AM
I did not see that. Thanks, Jamie!
PeterC 9:27:38 AM
weirdly I did see that on my news feed...
Jeff Berlin 9:27:42 AM
This afternoon I plan to just play "Hollow Inside" by the Buzzcocks looped for two hours of continuous play
Jeff Berlin 9:28:29 AM
Jamie picture in that article reminds me of "Spinal Tap" !
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:29:47 AM
Jeff, indeed it does. WHen I toured with Hawkwind in 1990, we played at SHenk Hall where they recorded the stonehenge scene. They Had the mini stones hanging on the wall when you walked in.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:30:28 AM
There are worse things imaginable, Jeff, like 10CC "Rubber Bullets" on repeat
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:31:08 AM
OK, Jamie. What do you mean when you say that you "toured with Hawkwind"?
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:31:46 AM
Jeff, do you remember Duane Glascock playing Tusk for an hour straight on BCN way back when?
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:33:57 AM
I did the US Space Bandits tour, drieving the gear truck, selling merch and as Dave's guitar tech. Along with Chris Bruce (rip) and his wife, Hawkwind Mary.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:36:29 AM
Man, that is so cool!
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:36:44 AM
You must have some great stories to tell
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:37:07 AM
right! I remember Chris and Hawkwind Mary!
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:37:55 AM
I had some very--how shall we say it in this here context--altered times in their apartment
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:39:10 AM
it was an experience to be sure. Parts great, parts drama. I wouldn't trade it though. And Bridget is still a good friend, I'm playing a couple tracks from her new cd with The Band of Doctors on tonight's show.
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:39:27 AM
You and I, and many others....
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:39:59 AM
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:43:45 AM
Looking forward to tonight's show. It's now becoming a Wednesday night ritual for me
Justin Snow 9:46:32 AM
fuck yes this Hawthonn record rules. just discovered your show and your playlist is premium.
Jamie Cohen (1) 9:46:35 AM
There's some fun stuff coming, a little more new than usual, but some good old stuff too.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:47:40 AM
Thanks for joining, Justin!
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:47:53 AM
Hawthonn does indeed rule.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:48:17 AM
You should know that this show is moving to 6 AM beginning next week
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:48:54 AM
But I post all the shows to MixCloud and you can also access them for a couple of weeks on the zbc archive
Jeff Berlin 9:52:32 AM
Jeez i missed out on hangin' w/ you Chris and Hawkwind Mary.. @Jamie yes remember "Tusk". I did it once live with "People are People" on ZBC.. mixing the records back into themselves..
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:52:32 AM
How did you come to discover the show, Justin? Are you a regular ZBC listener?
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:53:35 AM
Whenever one walked into Chris and Hawkwind Mary's apartment it was like walking into an alternative reality
Jeff Berlin 9:54:54 AM
Loved that Ruby the Hatchet cut !
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:55:21 AM
They are pretty great. I just discovered them this week.
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:57:14 AM
