Electronic Voice Phenomena.

I put together an evening of music on All Hallows Eve for Altar Ego Radio, during which I did two shows; the opening show, and ‘Hairs On The Back Of The Necktoplasm’.
The latter was colder and danker and took place long after the trick or treaters had shed their costumes. Intended to be a co-presented show, my sidekick of the airwaves met with an unfortunate incident and was unable to present; cue Mole flying solo.

I was by myself in the studio for the majority of the session, the technician and sound guy having ‘nipped out’, so I did quite frankly get a few of the willies. And by the end of ‘Necktoplasm’ I had a hexed left-hand turntable too, thus all jumps, record crackle, distortion, electronic fuckery, white noise and gaps were part of the deal. I suppose you had to be there.

I’m working on a track list which I’ll add here in a bit, since the set, although assembled from music collected and earmarked over a period of two months beforehand, was put together live and on the fly from a combination of 7, 10 and 12 inch vinyl, CDs, digital files, samples, sound effects and YouTube clips. lt took some juggling, but it was enormously enjoyable to do.

Other shows were presented by Altar Ego regular DJ Fuckabout putting his drum and bass down and picking up the dark, and stalwart Reverend Riff doing his doom-metal, whose sets both can be found with the rest of Altar Ego’s weekend lineup just here.

I highly recommend DJ Mandy Corn’s set which was beamed in from Brooklyn, for good old-fashioned surfer-ween and rockabilly-fright Americana - coupled with quickfire samples, jokes and stories.
