Album Review

Margolis, Al – “Rex Xhu Ping ” – [Pogus Productions]

jack soil   3/15/2006   A Library, CD

The Deep Listening crowd strikes again with 6 ethereal, organic, improvisational tracks that lend themselves to the whack sounds that piss some listeners off and thrill others to no end. Tape manipulations, vocals, electronics and who knows what else blend together for ‘no lose? nuggets of audio heaven

On an aside – Al Margolis (aka If Bwana) is known for heavily supporting the cassette culture of the 80’s and 90’s with his label Sound of Pigs. He is the overseer of Pogus, a Pauline Oliveros servicemark.

ah yes, the mighty Sound of Pig... I was sending away for obscure cassette releases left and right back in the 80s. really cemented my interest in material from under the underground. had some If Bwana and a bunch of other SOP cassettes. might even still have 'em in a box somewhere. wonder if they'd still play...
