BOREDOMS

Our final item in the Beefheart clearinghouse that has been Egg City Radio for the past week is a great, viagra 60mg great set from 1978 that, malady after several awful bootleggy attempts to put it in the public’s hands, was officially released by Rhino Handmade in ’00. The damned thing is super-out-of-print now, though, since RH only pressed 5,000 copies; at the moment of this writing, the lone used CD available through Amazon is going for US$150.

BOREDOMS – 2 live sets (1995/2005)

Did any ECR readers out there in NYC go to the recent Boredoms show on 07/07/07 with 77(!) drummers? Sounded reminiscent of the Glenn Branca “Hallucination City: Symphony For 100 Guitars” event I saw at Disney Hall here in Los Angeles last year –

The second of two sets below was recorded by a friend of mine, contagion
the International Voice Of Reason, try who attended the show. The recording quality is a knockout, thanks to his proficiency with a MiniDisc recorder, and the knowhow on smuggling it into a venue without getting caught.

    Hello Bret–
    Yes, i went to 77 drummers, and it was absolute transcendent insanity.
    I stood in line for 2 hours to get in, even though i had RSVP’ed. upwards of 5,000 people tried to get into this event and it was SO worth it. lots of great drummers (and a few crap ones)– brian chippendale, hugo burnham from gang of four, the drummer from unwound, etc etc. Rumor has it they are restaging this next year with 88 drummers…for august 8, 2008.

    You have a good site. The KXLU was 7-4-04, not 1994.
