X-Day Musickillin'

From: Reverend Doktor Chuckles Perdurabonobonanda

Greetings, this is the Bass-Playin' Jesus, who led the congregation in the
Star-Spangled Banner at the "Real" Jesus' Crucifixion, searching for NC
area noisewrights to get together on creating a monstrous, formidable, and
unforgettable dis-concert for X-Day '98. We're talking about razor-
sharp highs, liver-liquifyin' bass, and whatever we care to cram in
between. It would be a great honor if I could help produce the "Sunday
Morning Mass" music. If we could just keep on jamming, as we get lifted
up into the Vessels, the music would come closer and closer to perfection,
transcending the limits of our instruments, as we enter the Uber-Studios.

I'd also be highly interested in getting together, before or during the
celebrations, with other musicians who are interested in doing covers. If
you're in a band and have been dying to do a favorite song of yours, but
your 'mates would rather have their eyes ripped out by hawks than be a
"tribute band", COME ON DOWN! Leave their asses to the birds, this may be
your last chance to perform that song on Earth!

Some Suggestions of Mine:

"The Saucers are Coming" - Legendary Pink Dots

"Lucifer Landed" - LPD

"Koyaanisqatsi" - Philip Glass

"Spacegrass" - Clutch

"Escape From the Prison Planet" - Clutch

"Party's Fall" - Siouxsie & the Banshees

Brothers and Sisters, lemme know whatcha think!
Bass-Playin' Jesus out.

Witness my Sig:

"The Mopar-Drivin' Jesus" behind the Wheel, "The Bass-Playin' Jesus"
within the realms Musickal
High Chemognostic of the Temple of 3rd Heaven/Arcane Delights
and humble Priest of the Church of the Subgenius

I could dance without a hundred fingers pointing,
where the laughs were never mean,
and I know there's something out there,
and I know I'm gonna get there."

Are you talking about the X-Day Drill? As I recall there was hardly any
recorded music played, period. I tried to do an Hour of Slack live at one
point the first day, but gave up on any tape playing because there were too
many live, living dead preachers and musicians grabbing for the mikes and

To tell the truth, I'm not sure WHAT will be done with this list, since the
LAST thing anybody's gonna want to do at X-Day Brushwood will be to sit
around hearing OLD SHIT. I'm gonna make a cassette tape compilation for my
own amusement and maybe we'll run it between "band set-ups" and preachers.

To tell the truth, most of this stuff is too NORMAL to be used on, say,
HOUR OF SLACK, except sparingly. I allow maybe one commercially available
song by a known rock star every other show. There's just too much indie
madness out there NOT being played elsewhere, to JUSTIFY me playing
something most SubGenii already have (i.e., Zappa, Residents, Firesign
Theater etc.)

Another drawback is that these songs are all owned by Con companies and
ASCAP signatorees. Technically, we're supposed to pay ROYALTIES if we use
these in anything of OURS that could be construed as commercial. Just as we
got 2 grand out of Sublime for using the Dobbshead on their CD.

Never thought that I would have to know about such laws, but praise "Bob,"
we only have to put up with 'em for 52 more days.

I can easily get these on tape. I'm also working on a tape--should there be any
pirate stations at Brushwood like there were last year--called "Music To Keep
The Yacatisma Away". It'll contain many more apocolyptical (as opposed to
Apocoleptic) songs, and some of the below songs will be on this tape. Otherwise
I'll add them to the list above.

"Deaf Forever"--Motorhead

"Blinded By Fear"--At The Gates

"Christbait Rising"--Godflesh

"Plasticity"--Front Line Assembly

"Purgatory of Fiery Vulvas"--Painkiller
