Description

The show starts off with some good old Hawkwind/The Heads/AMT-style blown-out space rock from Weeed (who depending on what bio material is to be believed are either from Seattle or Portland), followed by the heavily Middle Eastern-influenced sounds of French duo Oiseaux-Tempête, the oddly named, vaguely Harmonia-esque Sherpa The Tiger, and longtime NWW associate Colin Potter.

The middle set begins with a track from the recently reissued, late-70s collaboration between Klaus Schulze and Arthur Brown (of the Crazy World of Arthur Brown), named Richard Wahnfried (a reference to Wagner, apparently, and also one of the first instances of a band having a "people name"), then continues in the "post-Kosmische with guy ranting" vein with the title track from Michael Bundt's oddball electro-sleaze album "Neon" (check out the Spinal Tap-esque, cartoonishly garish cover), and wraps up with some bleepy-bloopiness from Patricia Kokett (yet another band named like it's a people).

The final set begins with a sampling from the most recent offering in the WRWTFWW label's ongoing Midori Takada reissue series (that began last year with the phenomenal "Through The Looking Glass" and continued with the not-quite-as-good "Lunar Cruise"), "KI-Motion," one of two albums released by her early-80s experimental jazz group, MKWAJU Ensemble. We also hear from 90s Australian 4th-worlders Waak Waak Djungi, Steven R. Smith's latest project, Ulaan Markhor, and some psych-folk from Pumice and Matthew De Gennaro.
