Rare sounds and music
December 16, 2006
I’ve just stumbled across WFMU’s “On the Download” archive of ” new sounds, obscure audio, found sound, and other sonic stimulants unique to WFMU”. The first link was to this recording (real or not? I guess not.. but still..) of people being whipped. What else is there to say?
I was actually trying to re-find Record Brother, which is another interesting collection of old out of print records etc.
I could really do this all night.. There’s too much. It’s all too interesting.
The cassette image at the top of the post is from www.tapedeck.org, a project to ” showcase the amazing beauty and (sometimes) weirdness found in the designs of the common audio cassette tape”. How wonderful. As a guy who loves the aesthetics of old clipboards, and funky old digital clocks, I feel like I’ve found some of my long lost tribe. Sigh.
