September 9th: The Delirious Insomniac 4th Annual Live Event
The Delirious Insomniac Freeform Radio Show has haunted the airwaves of WLUW into the wee hours of dreary Monday Nights since 2008. Host Arvo Fingers uses his lengthy experience as a sleepless madman to wield surrealistic songs and sounds into a slithering swath for 4 hours a week. Presently, "Delirious Insomniac" is also syndicated on RadioKL.Hr in Croatia, with occasional interviews, virtual guest installations, ghost hosts, and radio art. On September 9th, 2011, Arvo Fingers and WLUW will be celebrating the 4th Anniversary of the Delirious Insomniac Freeform Radio Show as well as the release of the first volume of "Delirious Music For Delirious People", a compilation featuring Jarboe, Controlled Bleeding, Zola Jesus, Boyd Rice and Friends, Gary Wilson, BeNe GeSSeRiT, Big City Orchestra, Hans Grusel's Krankenkabinet, and others.
MAC BLACKOUT BAND:
Mac Blackout, former member of The Functional Blackouts, current singer for Daily Void, and Mickey has been active with this solo project since 2004, having released 2 LPs and one CD at least, of electric lo fi, cold to the bone glam-influenced, yet psychotic and isolated 4 track recordings. For this show, Mac Blackout will debut his band line up for the first time.
Teaadora Nikolova weaves haunting effects, layered vocals, and acoustic, ethnic instruments into deeply moving events that come off as both child like and mature. Teaadora will also debut a full band with Eastern influences on this night.
Coming off of the momentum of their full length debut LP on SNSE records, recorded with bunches of people huddled in a haunted, moldy basement, INFIRMARY ascend from the pits of absolute dread in Peoria Illinois as a duo, playing slimey, doom-laden wall noise. From Rick: "Occultist sing song alongside drone and violence"
"a free-flowing dance of sound, with the clompity-clomp of horse hooves sliding easily into electronic bleats, sewage-tunnel drones, air-vent clatter, chirping-bird dialogue, short-wave distortion—hell, be ready for anything and everything is about all I can say—a seemingly effortless collage of a somehow very organic brand of circuit-bent electronics, rendered by a true master."
