BOOT SURGERY_ Lesson Ten
A 30-minute long weekly show dedicated to reshaping a vast repertoire of
unauthorised live recordings of popular music spanning over 4 decades.
No artists will be identified; all sources will be reconstructed beyond
their original context; random methodologies will often be found at
Boot Surgery is meant to be both a dream sequence and the nec plus ultra of unauthorised recordings, a chaotic yet rigorous pool where vaguely
familiar moods and shards boil out of the melting pot and into the
ether. An ongoing requiem to popular music’s gradual drift into
oblivion, replaced with something that is promptly readable yet devoid
of depth, metaphor or mystery: digital compression, forceful presets and
hallucinatory autotune to the fore.
None of that here, and if anything, the antidote: fuzzy
and inviting, lo-fi, dark and foreboding, dissonant echoes of a time
when all seemed possible.
What if that time was now?
EVERY TUESDAY & SATURDAY @ 2 AM (GMT).
