This is a retool of my "Fear!" show--in listening to it, I found several very dark parts that tie in beautifully with the mayhem of the past week. It was a good one then--I added some bits, and it's a much, MUCH creepier one now.
Kicked off by the immortal and clichéed words by FDR, there is music by Oingo Boingo, Art, the Funky Bardos, Bob from SESAME STREET, Klaus Flouride (that's the way he spells it), Ed's Redeeming Qualities, the Flying Lizards, Elements of Style, Magazine, Ultravox, the Art of Noise, the Misfits, Guadalcanal Diary, the cabaret-act duo Joe & Eddie, Mark Stewart & The Maffia (ditto on that spelling, too), and a duet between Lydia Lunch and Clint Ruin on "Don't Fear the Reaper," this show is chock full of timely weirdness. Add a dollop of mind-blowingly dark topicality by MisteRogers (of all people!) and rants by Jack Van Impe, Garner Ted Armstrong, Bob Tilton, the lisping Peter Barkhuisen, and Jimmy Swaggart raving about "that black night in Massa-two-shitts!", and mix it all with background sounds like quirky movie themes by Laika & the Cosmonauts and sweeping cinematic textures from Pink Floyd's underrated "Atom Heart Mother" suite--and this is a show that will hunt you down and fucking KILL YOU for not listening to it. Or even if you DO listen to it, it could still take your ass OUT.
Beware, because FEAR is in the air; times are crazy, tension runs high, and no one is responsible for their actions.
