Brian Joseph Davis hat vor zehn Jahren zensierte Alben abgefackelt, die Überbleibsel gesamplet und daraus Musik gebastelt. Die Tracks muss man nicht unbedingt hören, aber die Idee finde ich schick.
I created a list of music that had been banned or challenged in some way during the vinyl era: The Beatles, Mahler, Stravinsky, Prince, The Kingsmen, Cat Stevens, Dead Kennedys and others. I looked through my own record collection, I did some shopping, and then I went down by the river where there were old BBQ pits grown over with weeds. I had brought the albums, some lighter fluid, a bag of charcoal and a bucket. I created a bonfire with the albums and what’s funny is it didn’t even occur to me that I could be fined or stopped or how crazy it was to create a slightly toxic fire with a twenty foot column of black smoke pluming in the middle of a city. Youth, I guess. I doused the albums quickly, let them cool then brought them home for sampling.
It took three needles and two turntables—the exceptionally warped copy of 2 Live Crew having ripped one tonearm right off. From there the samples were assembled into songs as much as possible.
