more like space... radio

i'm over the moon about this new development...
after months and probably years of procrastinating, mostly because i can get strangely obstinate about starting projects i don't already know how to do, i am taking the plunge:

behold, readers, the very first more like space radio podcast.

this is obviously going to be of interest to those of you who like to follow my playlists from the caustic lounge, or from my occasional live radio appearances. if you haven't followed those, you can find them by following this link. if that looks like something that might appeal to you, you might want to have an aural gander at "more like space" the radio show.

my aim is to have a one-hour show up approximately once per month, which should be doable, based on what i've managed to figure out thus far. the initial product is perhaps a little rough around the edges and figuring out the process of creating, hosting and publishing a podcast is something that crawled from under the floorboards of hell, but this now that i've taken the first step, it should be all sunshine and roses from here, right?

you can listen to the show within your browser here.

or download it from archive.org [recommended].

since this is a first swing, i'd really appreciate any feedback that would help improve the broadcast for future episodes.

if you are an artist and would like to have your work included [or specifically excluded for copyright reasons], please feel free to leave a comment, or email me at info@fsquaredmedia.net. if you'd like to suggest themes or tracks for future shows, you can also feel free to do so.

here's the playlist for episode one ::

aavikko :: el cebo/ intro

crash course in science :: kitchen motors
heimstatt yipotash :: lituya bay
crash worship :: wild mountain
militia :: new world view
militia :: the fragment and the whole
human greed :: freeview

[set break/ announcements]

korpses katatonik :: shatok
rapeshower :: feel this
sobre a maquina :: rotina

[extro/ announcements]

thomas nola et son orchestre :: kinderbund

hope that you enjoy this first foray into a brave new world. thanks, as always, to dom, for the lovely "the girl in the moon" artwork for the show.

wrong turn

as some of you are aware, i have a long-term project building a family tree. this has led me to some really interesting discoveries, like the fact that i am partly descended from crazy cat people, including the patron saint of crazy cat ladies, that a progenitor of mine once defeated a french naval assault with an army of scarecrows, that my well-established scottish roots are just as much norwegian as scottish, and that a relative of mine from the early middle ages let one rip with such ferocity that that's basically all he's remembered for. but this week, while i was in the midst of adding some newly obtained information, i found that some of my previous research had gone in an unexpected direction: the wrong one.

where possible, i try to track down stories of my better-known relatives and in doing so this week, i realised that i couldn't connect one of my greatĖ£ grandfathers to his son through any outside sources. what's worse that i found numerous sources that con…

dj kali & mr. dna @ casa del popolo post-punk night

last night was a blast! a big thank you to dj tyg for letting us guest star on her monthly night, because we had a great time. my set was a little more reminiscent of the sets that i used to do at katacombes [i.e., less prone to strange meanderings than what you normally hear at the caustic lounge]. i actually invited someone to the night with the promise "don't worry, it'll be normal". which also gives you an idea of what to expect at the caustic lounge. behold my marketing genius.

mr. dna started off putting the "punk" into the night [which i think technically means i was responsible for the post, which doesn't sound quite so exciting]. i'd say that he definitely had the edge in the bouncy energy department.

many thanks to those who stopped in throughout the night to share in the tunes, the booze and the remarkably tasty nachos and a special thank you to the ska boss who stuck it out until the end of the night and gave our weary bones a ride home…

eat the cup 2018, part seven :: oh, lionheart

it all seemed so magical: england's fresh-faced youngsters marching all the way through to a semi-final for the first time since 1990. everywhere, the delirious chants of "it's coming home". and then, deep into added time, the sad realization: it's not coming home. oh england, my lionheart.

now, if we're being really strict about things, my scottish ancestors would probably disown me for supporting England, because those are the bastards who drove them off their land and sent them packing to this country that's too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. and indeed, shops in scotland have sold through their entire stock of croatian jerseys, as the natives rallied behind england's opponents in the semi-final. however, a few generations before they were starved and hounded from the lands they'd occupied for centuries, my particular brand of scottish ancestors would have encouraged me to support england [assuming that national football had even…
