Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-12-04: GunBellows Anniversary Weirderness!

December 2, 2019

In our early years, after graduating from our initial late-late-late-night time slot (formally 2-3 am, in real terms 2 am until whenever we decided to call it a day), we had a weird ritual where we would creep back to the station and do a celebratory broadcast at our initial time slot on the occasion of our program’s anniversary, saving up all the weirdest, craziest, most profane and listener-challenging material all year that we felt we simply couldn’t get away with during prime time hours.  After midnight, anything goes!  Anyhow, here, from ten years ago, is what would have been our third anniversary late-night broadcast, episode 155, complete with an accordion/noise jam from the hosts of the late night experimental electronic music program the Art of Beatz (still on the air!) who formerly preceded our awkward and strange early broadcasts, who always found it hilarious that we’d somehow managed to stumble upon the only radio program theme even more niche and obscure than their own.  At its original online home, this weird slice of radio racked up some 8444 listens, and going forward it will continue to do so courtesy of the Internet Archive, where you can listen to it right now… or late, late tonight, if you prefer.  Here’s its playlist:

[Jardel, our new favorite listener from Brazil, noticed a few shows had the ends cut off. That’s not right! We’re trying to replace those with corrected versions. If you hear such problems, it’s great to let us know so everybody won’t miss a thing. Thanks Jardel!]

WARNING: THIS IS QUITE A STRANGE SHOW. THERE’S SOME TALK, A FEW SONGS AT THE BEGINNING AND END (STAY FOR THE END), AND THEN KUMA FROM ART OF BEATZ AND GUNSHAE JOINS US FOR A LONG, FREE-IMPROV WITH LOTS OF NOISY STUFF IN THE MIDDLE. JUST SO’S YOU KNOW, THAT’S WHAT WE GET UP TO AT 2 AM. LATER TODAY WE RETURN TO OUR NORMAL PROGRAMMING…

* (Oh yeah, that’s Brian Eno from the Art of Beatz show preceding us. It’s from Discrete Music if I’m not mistaken. The Art of Beatz show that was our neighbor when we were at this time is nice. http://www.artofbeatz.org/siteframe.html Some of them are in Gunshae (thus the title of this episode: http://www.myspace.com/gunshae
* The Mekons – Dark Dark Dark – Natural (2007) – http://www.myspace.com/mekons
* Walter Rhodes – Banty Rooster Blues – One of only two solo African American accordion tracks preserved in the Library of Congress (1927) – Ruleville, Mississippi, USA – Compiled by Jared Snyder, who is awesome!
* Orpheum Bell – Metropolitan Waltz – Pretty As You (2007) – Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA – http://www.orpheumbell.com
* GunBellows – I See Dead Accordions, parts I-III. Live in the studio with Kuma from Gunshae, Rowan and Bruce and various variouses, including the amusing Accordio, the best accordion program on Bruce’s phone! (run through some effects for maximum silliness and occasional kinda coolness.) http://www.LivingTransient.com/
* Squeezy Easy – Smoke On the Water – Has to be seen to be believed, seriously, pause this and go watch this guy. He’s got a bunch of others too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3eQmm-EYPE
* Hearse – Small Problem – Cavalcade Of The Scars II – Through Our Own Eyes (2008) – Vancouver Island, BC, Canada – http://www.selfrighteous.ca
