Riley2C Terry – 22You27re Nogood 22 – 5BCortical Foundation5D

From a man who’s spent time “In C” and ridden a
“Rainbow in Curved Air”, we get two other sides
of Terry Riley…part of the 60′s experimental set
of modern classical “maverick” composers. We get
one disk excerpting an hour from an all night
concert performed in 1967. Snake-charming tape
loops and organ cycles, wind thru your ears down
behind the ribcage and seize/squeeze your heart.
Pulse and ply (If you dig it, track down Riley’s
“Persian Surgery Dervishes” release!!)

A bonus CD features an R&B song plunderphunked for 20 minutes, the title of which was “You’re No Good.”Allegedly Riley did some concerts as Poppy Nogood, so he was struck by the synchronicity of this soulful ditty. Indeed, he *was* NoGood! but thetwistorama he performs is SoGood, albeit long. Still it captivates me on every listen with its simple delay, overlays and stereo-separation. All done well before there were simple software buttons to push to do so.
