The RWC crew have been huge Anticon records fans for time now. Over the years we've managed to catch Sole, Dosh, Pedestrian, Telephone Jim Jesus, Why and Subtle live. We'd slowly grown used to the fact that we'd never be able to watch Themselves live due to a split. Recently in Bristol they played and we saw them....Hooray for Anticon.

The RWC crew absolutely love Swoon despite that American accent that rises at the end of sentences...We also love collaborating.

Check out her latest project, it rules...

In October 2009, NYC artist Swoon and five friends came to Portland, Maine, and transformed SPACE Gallery into a playful, dreamlike, earth-hued environment. This video shows the installation process and the opening reception of this breathtaking show, and gives a glimpse into the artists' visions that inspired their work.

SPACE Gallery, Portland, Maine
10.15.2009 - 12.18.2009
A collaborative art installation by Swoon, Monica Canilao, Conrad Carlson, Ryan C Doyle, Ben Wolf, Greg Henderson, and friends.

Mix Cloud

If like some the RWC crew you are sat in front of a computer for about 70% of the day you probably listen to a lot of music. If you haven't discovered either Mix Cloud or Sound Cloud yet then quite sleeping...

76 from the RWC crew has a featured mix on Mix Cloud at the moment...

Some people are beefing about not being able to download the mixes on Mix Cloud, if you are a trusty Mac user you can get around this by doing the following...

use Safari, when its buffering go window then activity, copy the biggest file there which is the stream to the mp3 file, go to window again and paste the link into your downloads.

Bob's your uncle. Got around the system.

Now go and enjoy good free music.

Shit Happens

By Sam Arthur / UK / 2006, Bertie is in a coma whilst his wife enjoys the high life. Witness the rise and fall of this couple living under the Heathrow airport flight path. Based on a real phenomenon airlines would rather we didn't know about, this film is a little thing with a lot of impact.

Sufjan Stevens

Arrrrrgh two of the RWC crews favourite things come together in an awesome display of awesomenessity...Hula Hooping and Sufjan Stevens.

BQE - A film by Sufjan Stevens, Photography by Reuben Kleiner and Sufjan Stevens,Music by Sufjan Stevens, Edited by Malcolm Hearn, Rueben Kleiner, and Sufjan Stevens.

Not sure how we missed this one, BQE came out on October 20th.

The CD artwork also features some amazing typography...

Sufjan Stevens is proud to present The BQE, a cinematic suite inspired by the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the Hula-Hoop. Commissioned by Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), The BQE was originally performed in the Howard Gilman Opera House in celebration of the 25th anniversary Next Wave Festival in October of 2007.

The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway is an incidental 12.7 miles of urban roadway built over the course of several decades (1939-1964), spear-headed by the master architect Robert Moses to accommodate for the increase of commercial and commuter traffic in New York City's outer boroughs. The roadway was a painstaking piecemeal project, poorly planned, badly built, and relentlessly encumbered by the obvious obstacles of the era: red tape, neighborhood protests, World War II, and a congested borough whose sequestering layout proved ill-fitting for the automobile. The resulting expressway-a pockmarked, serpentine, congested BQE-has become one of Brooklyn's most notable icons of urban blight. And, for Sufjan Stevens, an object of unmitigated inspiration.

The official album release of The BQE follows nearly two years after its original performance at BAM, providing the songwriter (and his various collaborators) ample time to wrestle out all the thematic incarnations of the project, and to attempt an appropriation of Wagner's Gesamtkunstwerk ("total work"). The resulting album might be best described as a grand creative franchise-incorporating movie, symphony, comic book, dissertation, photography, graphic design, and a 3-D Viewmaster® reel-in which a songwriter's interrogation of one of New York's ugliest landmarks expands athletically to forums and formulas outside of the song itself. In fact, the BQE is everything but a song.

First and foremost, The BQE is a self-made home-movie documentation, exhibiting how all the architectural colors of Brooklyn and Queens are fabulously intersected by this ramshackle artery of highway traffic. Shot renegade style on do-it-yourself film cameras, the animated footage of grid-lock crisscrossing the brick and mortar of Brooklyn flickers and cascades Koyaanisqatsi-style on three simultaneous screens. The 16mm cinematography (heroically shot by Reuben Kleiner on a 1960s Bolex) utilizes time-lapse photography, in-camera editing, slow motion, and post-production mirror effects to transform urban blight into a splendor of graphic compositions.

The BQE is also accompanied by an idiosyncratic musical soundtrack (composed by Stevens for band and chamber orchestra), evoking a romanticized musical choreography of perpetual motion vs. gridlock. Borrowing variously from Gershwin, Terry Riley, Charles Ives, and Autechre (to name a few), the music showcases skittish woodwinds wrestling out impressionist articulation (in 7/8) and imperial brass anthems evoking various incarnations of the music of the automobile.

The BQE further extends its mythology by anthropomorphizing the expressway and its theoretical conceits into a 40-page comic book (cover by Matt Loux, masthead by Christian Acker), in which three extra-terrestrial superhero sisters (Botanica, Quantus, and Electress) use hula-hoops to combat the "the Messiah of Civic Projects," Captain Moses, and his totalitarian social architecture. The comic book, written by Stevens and gorgeously drawn, colored, and inked by longtime friend and collaborator Stephen Halker, visualizes in graphic form many of the political motifs of the movie and soundtrack: mid-century urban theory, modernism, post-modernism, hoop dynamics, and the spiritual practice of Subud.

By incorporating an anachronistic graphic novel, the album utilizes artifacts from the Golden Age of the American highway (1930s-1960s). This also inspired the inclusion of a stereoscopic Viewmaster® reel. Seven 3-D images-also created by Stephen Halker-are meant to accompany the seven movements of The BQE. While an ostensibly gimmicky object of kitsch, the 3-D reel, upon closer inspection, becomes a fitting metaphor for the thematic premises posed by the BQE: its circular geometry mirrors the hula hoop, its numerology (seven divisions) runs parallel to the seven movements of the musical suite, and its historical circumstances shed light on the modernist themes of the album. Originally unveiled at the World's Fair of 1939 in Flushing, Queens, the Viewmaster promoted 3-D panoramic illusions of the American landscape (the Grand Canyon, the Redwoods, New York City, for instance), advertising various tourist destinations as a way to inspire American drivers to boldly go (via automobile and super highway) where no man has gone before. Incidentally, the first portion of the BQE included the Kosciusko Bridge, connecting the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens over Newtown Creek as an efficient means of funneling tourist traffic to the World's Fair. From this reading, the BQE and the Viewmaster reel are odd accomplices in the modernist conspiracy to mobilize Americans nationwide.

Many of these thematic abstractions are rendered as a meandering social treatise-via prose-poem psychobabble liner notes by Sufjan Stevens. In this case, the songwriter borrows from multiple theoretical sources to evoke how the vainglorious battle between the "Artist" and the "Object of Inspiration" ultimately leads to self-absorption, existential exhaustion, and morbid futility in the Finding The Right Metaphor. For Stevens, this metaphor (in its struggle to creatively render an object as irreducible as the BQE) expands into a multitude of forms and figures, like a shape-shifting chimera of infinite significance-resulting in an album that refuses to be just one thing.

The BQE is available as a double-disc format (CD/DVD), which includes the original 16mm/8mm film (in widescreen "triptych" display), the original motion picture soundtrack, a 40-page booklet (with extensive liner notes and photographs), and the stereoscopic image reel (playable in all View-MasterĂ‚® viewers).

The limited edition vinyl is available as a double gatefold and includes the soundtrack on 180-gram vinyl, a large-scale 32-page booklet with liner notes and photographs, and a black-and-white version of the 40-page Hooper Heroes comic book.

A fully colored version of the comic book is available separately.

If you are unfamiliar with Sufjan Stevens watch this fan-made video for John Wayne Gacy Jr...

..and then read about him on Wikipedia, he's an interesting fella.

Let's Twist

The RWC crew keep on finding some real good looking documentary trailers on Youtube...

Trailer for the essential 1992 documentray on the Twist dance craze. If you love anything 60s or dancing this documentary will blow your mind. Directed by Ron Mann and featuring Chubby Checker, Hank Ballard and many more. The film aslo features footage from the temple of the twist The Peppermint Lounge as well as vintage footage from the Whiskey A Go-Go.

The RWC crew love this amazing short film about about a Twist demonstration in 1962 at a Chicago theatre. Joe Cavalier does the best twisting dance here we have ever seen.

Pan's People

In the late 60's and throughout most of the 70's before music videos Pan's People appeared weekly on Top of the Pops when an act was unable to perform live. The RWC crew love the way they danced around and looked sexy.

In 1974 a dance routine where Dee Dee and Louise gyrated on cushions wearing see-through costumes with sequined nipple covers hit up the BBC. This is quite possibly the best thing that has ever happened because of Top of the Pops. Watch it on the clip above at 2mins.

Here are a few more classics Pan's performances...

With Georgie Fame in 1969 doing Seventh Son

1973 Ike and Tina Turner - Nutbush City Limits

The RWC Crew think it is a bit strange that these little hussies now probably enjoy watching Countdown and going to church socials.
