Flashback to the Clevermeat House

By CosmicCairns on October 2, 2018 11:48 pm

Back in the late 90's I played in a band with a couple buddies.  It wasn't anything too serious.  We played a few shows at some bars and coffee shops around town.  In the process we ended up befriending another local band and played some shows with them.  They all lived in a house together and at one point they invited us over to hang out.  From the outside it appeared to be a normal house, but the inside was one of the strangest things I've ever seen.  There was one room that was completely carpeted.  Not just the floors, but the walls and ceilings also.  Another room was entirely covered in mirrors.  The bathroom looked like a public bathroom complete with stalls and a row of urinals.  The only way to get to one of the guy's bedroom was to go through another of the guy's bedroom.  I think there was a shower in the kitchen.  I'm pretty sure there was some other weird stuff about it, but it was a long time ago and I can't remember all the details anymore.  I think I only went over there once or twice at the most.  I'm not really sure what made me think about it now, but it just sort of popped in my head and I was like "Oh yeah.  That place was weird as hell."  So then I decided to create a track that could maybe capture a tiny sense of how strange it was.  More just in feel than anything.

A recipe for happiness? Not at first listening. A second and third listening reveals the hidden humor. Together with  Jim Wood's this week's contribution this is a great companion during the next days

Was it weird, or was it clever.

It's a crap shoot.

"...I think I only went over there once or twice at the most."

Or maybe you never left.  Maybe as you transmit this coded message, you are deep in the bowels of the shag carpet room connected to a music extraction device, but imagining you are comfortably lounging at home playing your favorite popcorn tin while your dog licks your toes.

Or not... just a thought.

Great, super creepy sound reminiscent of early butthole surfers, scratch acid and jack officers. Lots of great sound pieces. Jarringly different from last week's track.  To me, this sounds like the 90's in a creepy band house. Perfect!

House... or Schlachthaus?

  Thanks for giving it a couple chances to make sense.  It's true, sometimes music needs more than one listen to "get."

  I dunno.  Possibly both?

  Well that's a terrifying thought.  Maybe instead of a flashback I actually had a brief glimpse outside of the matrix.  But anyway, I like to throw some curve balls once in awhile.  If I'm doing more melodic or acoustic stuff I start getting the urge to make some chaotic noise but then if I start doing more noisy stuff I get the urge to do more melodic stuff again.  At any rate I feel like it keeps me on my toes a little bit.

  I had to look that up despite having taken 4 years of German many many years ago.  It is quite rusty.  Yes, Schlacthaus would be a good alternate title for this.

I like how the incessant pulse holds it all together nicely.

  Thanks!  I do feel like having one constant element in an otherwise chaotic piece gives a teeny tiny bit of structure.

  Hey thanks for listening!  It was fun to try to cram in a bunch of strange sounds for sure.

That house sounds like the type of house I visit in my dreams, that's pretty wild! That's definitely the perfect soundtrack for it!

October 11, 2018 5:47 pm

rad!  smile

Super trippy. I'd like to hear this while wandering around a house like that. I used to go to a similar house, was converted commercial space above a plant store, we called house Plant World. all kinds of weird, the people there were in bands- Suction Goat and others. We did late night drum jams that we eventually performed with under name Powercow. Ah, the good old days. Nice way to capture a feeling here!

  Yeah, there was something vaguely dreamlike about it.  Thanks for listening!

  I wonder if bands just naturally gravitate towards houses like that, or if the houses transform themselves because the bands live there?  I remember asking those guys why the house was like that and they didn't know.  They said it was like it when they moved in.  But maaaaybe... it sensed they were coming?

Sounds like an awesome place to visit when injecting the marijauanas... freaky stuff, cool audio memory smile

You captured the feeling of a surrealist maze extremely well.

October 14, 2018 1:00 pm

The voice was really exciting. Gave it a touch of "crowded place" as well.

  Definitely a good spot for smoking the drugs.  Thanks for listening!

  Thanks.  It was kind of a surrealist maze now that you mention it.  smile

  Thanks!  The house definitely felt a bit like a fever dream.

That suhweet driving pulsating bassline really moves the track.  The deep vocals give it that extra added creepy effect.  This has the feeling of one long hellish bender of a night smile

  Yeah it kind of feels like a not-so-fun never ending party I think.  Thanks for listening!
