Banned, Burned Albums played on a Turntable

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.
