Low End Theory

Oct 11, 2023 8:00 AM – 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?

I Heart Noise 8:37:43 AM
We crossed paths on Twitter when it was still working
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:40:26 AM
I think they are a shamefully underrecognized band in North America
I Heart Noise 8:40:49 AM
They are - I liked what I heard by them
I Heart Noise 8:41:14 AM
They were also kind enough to do track-by-track breakdown of the album for my blog
Verb Crunch 8:41:27 AM
Hearing voices
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:42:06 AM
and PmC is reliving the trauma of his Spanish classes at BC, lol.
I Heart Noise 8:42:32 AM
Sounds like a Spanish village celebrating
Verb Crunch 8:43:08 AM
DCD played the Berklee. I remember because it was sold out. I didn’t have a ticket so I tried to sneak in by climbing up the fire escape.
I Heart Noise 8:43:22 AM
I saw DCD at Orpheum
I Heart Noise 8:43:24 AM
I Heart Noise 8:44:19 AM
Oh - there's someone singing Beatles
I Heart Noise 8:44:26 AM
I heard that
DJ Ouroboros (host) 8:47:04 AM

pmcWhenevah 8:49:05 AM

I Heart Noise 9:09:29 AM
They were a big deal in 2000s
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:12:30 AM
I saw then in Toronto in the third original lineup. Their drummer sounded as loud as an entire stage of the Kodo Drummers of Japan
I Heart Noise 9:15:08 AM
I Heart Noise 9:15:40 AM
That's what drumming is about
I Heart Noise 9:22:42 AM
And just now I thought "Is this Isis?"
I Heart Noise 9:22:49 AM
Sure enough...
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:23:47 AM
yes indeed
I Heart Noise 9:24:49 AM

I Heart Noise 9:29:57 AM
We're enjoying the silence
I Heart Noise 9:30:05 AM
This is Depeche Mode
I Heart Noise 9:30:11 AM
There we go
I Heart Noise 9:30:14 AM
I Heart Noise 9:30:26 AM
The band in question is Loga
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:31:37 AM
Well, dang. It seems like Virtual DJ did not record my monologues in the second hour after the first one
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:31:58 AM
I'm sorry. I should have caught this. Damn
DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:32:24 AM
This is the second time this has happened. first time I caught it
I Heart Noise 9:33:21 AM

I Heart Noise 9:33:36 AM

DJ Ouroboros (host) 9:33:54 AM
I Heart Noise 9:34:35 AM
Did you know - there's a whole compilation of bands covering 4:33
I Heart Noise 9:34:43 AM
