The Theremin Fractured

Beta got me a theremin kit for my birthday, and I've been gleaning music featuring the instrument. (The theremin is an early electronic instrument, invented in the 1920s, that is played by waving your hands by a volume-controlling antenna and a pitch-controlling antenna. It's all portamento and glissando and scifi wooo.) Hence my theme for the week.

Blake Jones--Music to Change Clothes By
Ugly Casanova--Smoke Like Ribbons
Kevin Sinnott--A Burst of Color
Add N to (X)--Party Bag
12 Cents for Marvin--Persian Dub
Les Claypool--Mushroom Man
Schwump--The Crocodile's Song
Os Mutantes--Banho De Lua
The Pixies--Velouria
The Flaming Lips--Race for the Prize
Tripping Daisy--Same Dress New Day
Blur--This Is a Low
Jarrod Barker--World's Greatest Scientists

Plastic Ono Band--Give Peace a Chance
Gil Scott-Heron--The Revolution Will Not be Televised

Hey gang!

Beta here. I've been hunkered down in my office making insane station IDs, drippy dub wanks and generally gnawing on all the damnned iguanas in here. Little monsters are completely full of poison! I can smell them out there, warming themselves under my mixer, doing unspeakable things to my preamp, and fixing their beady little eyes on me.


Anyhow, I suppose that's none of your concern, is it?

If you're reading this, you're most likely staff, and I'd like to take the time to thank each and every one of you for not only the effort you put in, but for the life and fun you bring with you. It is a glorious thing. If I had 2 drinks in me, I'd tell you I looooooved you, then stumble a bit and tell you a sordid story about some past bit of debauchery.

Fracture is my home, and we are all family. Much loooove.
