Holy Babble – Glossolalia from the New Berlin
by Heinrich Dubel (DJ Officer, Officer) and Paul “Paulator” Paulun
The works of Dubel and Paulun on myths and mutations in popular
cultural and musical history – for example James Dean (his death and
his Porsche) and Michael Jackson (as demon-engine of pedophilia) – have
earned them a strong audience in the Berlin radio community.
In “Holy Babble” the psychodaemonic lingo of mythology is extracted
from the Bible’s Revelations, various song-texts and the abyssmal
imaginations of the authors, and injected into a
stream-of-consciosness-style set of electronica.
“Holy Babble” was produced at reboot.fm (Berlin/Germany, May 2005).
“The devil’s body is hard lyk yrn, his face is terrible.”

The abstract sound narratives that Liz releases on the web are not presented as radio pieces, though it could make for some very good radio and I would program it anyday. “A tone poem in five parts, this is a series of short stories making a full-lenght musical chronicle about the many sides of love. 2 hours of Liz’s subtle sound paintings (…) linked by the voice of Marilyn Monroe.” download (from archive)
What they say : ” this was a short lived bloomington pop band along the lines of go sailor or cub. in fact, there are covers of each of those bands on this disc. the band was 2 people, casey on guitar and vocals and chris clavin on drums. they never got around to recording anything but once, casey played live on the cool local radio station during women in music week and i recorded it. i wasn’t there, so it’s just her solo.” It’s very nice if you like DIY pop-punk. Released under a CC licence by Plan-It-X Free, the free wing of the DIY punk label Plan-It-X. download from archive.org
It’s the title of the latest track by Andrey Savitsky, aka hhtp. It gets stuck somewhere in your head and stay there. It also sounds a bit sad which makes it all the better.
Some abstract glitch intercut with concrete noise, coming from somewhere in Poland.
If you liked Radia 02 some weeks ago, here is a link to some more. (it’s 37 minutes long)
Down with the Chairman is a program from Resonance about music freely available (from the web). But this program is a bit different as it is a report from Ram 7 festival in Minsk, Belarus, and it sounds really great. Includes stuff from our friend Andrey Savitsky (http://hhtp.org) and many good field recordings.
