    Spoonbender 1.1.1 – “Stereo Telepathy Academy ” – [Helen Scarsdale Agency]

    This 40 minute piece does a mesmerizing job of capturing both
    the fear and the adoration of science. The kernel for that
    comes via a series of samples from David Cronenberg’s student
    film “Stereo” then bathing them in longwave synth treatments.
    Utilizing a Milgram’s worth of warmth and the unflinching
    hands of sonic technicians Dustin and Cup, humorous detritus
    is kept to an acceptable 2-3 ppm. It has the dry sterile air
    of PBS (Pattern Brain Surgery). Audio augmentations include
    static electrodes to temples, several Kitaro inversion fields,
    Doppler ripples, headphone hemispherics, McGoohan iso-reverb,
    matrix printing agitation, and what appears to be champagne
    glasses. Perhaps the latter are rung along their rims in
    celebration of the exceptional success of the experiment.
    Nuclear family war is avoided by taking the high telepath
    between us. Heisenberg’s uncertainty is cast aside in favor
    of Stringfellow’s certainty in the blink of a trepanation
    and the removal of large portions of the larynx. Ultimately
    the artificial neural/erotic barriers are bypassed in favor
    of the inevitable union betwixt the perfect parapsychological
    pair, researcher and subject. -Thurston Hunger

    Spoonbender 1.1.1’s Stereo Telepathy Academy is fucking mental. And essential. Truly alien, Truly progressive, and likely to be misunderstood by all but the committed. A true classic on par with COILANS and NWW’s Soliloquy For Lilith. I’ve listened to it obsessively for weeks, and i’m afraid to go near this whilst on drugs! DEEP AND ESSENTIAL! I first heard it on Nozmo’s show when the group were guests. thanks Kfjc!

  • I haven’t had a chance to check this one out for myself yet. but between T.Hunger’s original review, and ukDave’s additional comments, I’m now totally intrigued, and obviously I need to dive into this release.

  • I have played this a time or two since it was added to the library here at KFJC on the graveyard, but I have to admit it didn’t impact me as much until I heard it during the day. Monchichi was playing it on a Thursday morning as I was drinking my morning coffee, and it just worked so well. Nothing is better than sitting back with a cup of coffee with the a discussion of trepanation and lobotomies. Listen with care.

  • I heard that Spoonbenders label-Or the distributor or something, got a cease and desist from David Cronenberg because of Stereo Telepathy Academy and it’s use of Crimes Of The Future. Look it up on Ebay under “nutters”. I’m not giving up mine!

  • WARNING! If you play this you can move things with your mind…OK maybe not but if you practice daily you can communicate to strangers using only your mind! At least it happened to me once. ONLY 333 copies released! Get your copy now before we all become sex zombies. David Cronenberg wants you to have this in your collection. Long Live the New Flesh! Long Live Spoonbender 1.1.1
