Running In Place – Locked Grooves From WFMU [coll] – [Wfmu]

An LP full of freaky and fun locked grooves from our friends at WFMU in New Jersey. Plenty of stuff to discover here, and always a groove or two you didn’t come across the last time you played the record. Happy hunting! I won’t disclose my favorite cuts because even if I did, you may never be able to find them yourself. Well OK, here’s one: Side A, Track 33 has two Beatles chords alternating forever. How fun is that? Some cuts are quite clever, others rock out with a good beat, some are just annoying, others are, well, stupid (a guy says “chicken pot pie…chicken pot pie…chicken pot pie…”, another guy says “moo… moo… moo…” and they never ever stop.) You’ll even hear Dave Emory’s voice in a couple of places. What’s interesting about playing any locked groove for a really long time is that eventually the repetitive zen factor will cause audio hallucinations; you’ll start hearing words that aren’t there, new melodies will appear, the thing will seem to change even though it really doesn’t… that’s been my experience anyway. So have fun with this. If you needed proof of how weirdly cool the folks at WFMU are, look no further… further… further…
