The Cultural Miracle from February 1996: “For all its great cable channels, the excellent new global cyber capitalism is turning out to be a lot like the simple, grinding, exploitative capitalism of a hundred years ago,” writes Thomas Frank in the lead essay, in which he begins to explore the ways we deceive ourselves about our basic economic interests.

Alternative To What from December 1993. To fully appreciate this issue of The Baffler, you have to transport yourself to a time when the word “alternative” did not provoke a reflexive cringe. Because the war on corporate culture continues with Steve Albini’s “The Problem with Music,” an essay that compares the act of signing with a major label to traversing a trench filled with “runny, decaying shit.” Plus: Keith White’s legendary takedown of Details magazine.

Let’s Deviance! from March 1992. The first appearance of in-house anti-hero Gedney Market, as well as the beginnings of The Baffler’s distinct style of cultural interpretation. To wit: Thomas Frank’s hipster demolition job and Rick Perlstein’s robust analysis of Scooby Doo. 108pp

DARKSMITH

Poverty Of Will

(Chocolate Monk - choc.435) Magazine + CDR $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

With many Darksmith recordings, one’s imagination doesn’t immediately conjure a person creating or manipulating sound, but rather drifts toward visions of depopulated areas getting damaged by alien weather events — choked by toxic dust, pelted by freeze-dried rocks of ooze, ruptured by shrieking subterranean trauma. Human agency, when its presence is unmistakable, occupies a position of forced abandonment, like cinematic ghosts unwilling to quit the material plane or an individual dehumanized by efficient banality. Through grit-flecked remnants of grainy field recordings from environs luscious and bleak. Weighed down by cackles and croaks blurred by humidity and contact mics. Tangled in rusted-over playgrounds dominated by geese and tumors. Molested by magnetic tape instability, truncated fidelity, and corrupted modulation fur. As the companion book demonstrates, the lad has an eye for evoking from bland and wholesome portraiture the incipient horror unknowingly embedded within. Darksmith’s stark, high-contrast line art dispenses with gradation, a nice echo of the flatness of the subjects’ lives immortalized by disposable time-killing entertainment magazines ubiquitous throughout medical waiting rooms. 44 pages.

DARKSMITH

Regret Everything

(No Rent) Cassette + Poster $15.00

Without uttering a single syllable, Darksmith Of California sketches a solid case that everyone has been replaced with replicants. Metaphorically, let’s say, if that’s what it takes to accept the premise. Throughout Regret Everything’s thirty-minute capgras-adjacent mood-kill, corrupted and near-stillborn modulations groom themselves against the bristles of truncated fidelity. Here then is No Rent’s apt herald for the invariably bright-with-optimism mornings on the West Coast, with its instances of damaged tape transforming bird-coop piano into anti-erotic asphyxiation, and croaking plank frottage distilled from five-hundred pounds of bird guts pushed out of a trombone. It is a drily disturbing landscape, to be sure, where pock-marked eggs the size of a kidnapper’s van grind against cement walls, raining down flakes and calcium shards. On this slightly reworked reissue of Mom Costume’s 2018 edition of 10, fumes of diesel fuel rise from the surfaces of amorphous chunks of scorched Styrofoam scattered in sugary puddles of avian placenta. Newborn chicks, writhing in balls of discomfort and dread, stretch to puncture the constricting membrane of disorientation, unaware they’ve been blinded by mercury leaked from ruptured polyps bearing down on them. All the machines have tumors. Hello and welcome.

BOB DESAULNIERS / TRANSLUCENT ENVELOPE

Grimly Forming

(Chocolate Monk - choc.515) Magazine + CDR $15.00

Yet more sweet eye-and-ear yolk in the Lunk Headed Library series and further recordings from the under-documented tape-mangling sound wizard whose use of tapes, sampler, electronics, phone recordings, contact mics, and objects render “a fairly accurate … depiction of my brain turning to mush over the last eight months or so.” The 20-page A5 color booklet is a selection of collages made between 2015 and 2021. Nothing soothes mush brain like magazines, scissors, paper, and glue stick. Balance, dear Bozos. Numbered edition of 69

DINOSAURS WITH HORNS

Pink Cow

(Chocolate Monk - choc.510) Magazine + CDR $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

Master loopist and audio hypnotist Joseph Hammer and loopy sonic magician Rick Potts are the “antique brass holes” who have been plundering phonics since the pre-MIDI era of the LA Free Music heyday. Their chunks of discombobulated ear worm wax are still circling around heads like stars and birdies after a mallet blow to the frontal lobe. This slice of kaleidoscopic audio fruitcake was recently discovered in their jewel-encrusted archive treasure chest. Milk the Pink Cow’s psychoactive soda pop and go for a swirl with floating fragments of dolled-up cartoonery and prismatic rigamarole bouncing off rubber walls of repurposed Exotica malarkey in a sauce of dreamy semi-gelatinous electro-stoolage. The eye-dazzling 16-page full-color booklet of Potts’s tainted surrealism is included for purusal while submerged in the Dinosaurs’ sound swamp.

Godbert himself explains the genesis of his wonderful lo-fi reed / fog blare, I was stuck in Edinburgh for five days due to a mammoth snow storm. Fortunately, I had at hand a copy of the Ladybird classic Pondlife, published in 1966, and decided to alter it and make it enjoyable for the people who more interested in guns and murder. As the original preface to the book says, ‘A pond might look like just another patch of water, but beneath the green scum, many interesting things are happening’.” With 36pp full-color A5 book of collages.

JOWE HEAD

Swell Maps 1972-1980

(Sounds On Paper) Hardcover book + 7-inch $30.00

Formed in band-member and co-founder Jowe Head’s home town of Solihull, England in 1972, the group featured the late Nikki Sudden and Nikki’s brother, the late Epic Soundtracks, along with Phones Sportsman, John Cockrill, and Richard Earl. In this 152-page biography of the band, Heads takes us to each members’ formative years and reveals what made them experiment with challenging music and eventually come together to form Swell Maps. Through his own recollections and utilizing interviews with former members, he explores the early days of the band, and details stories that bring the reader into the inner workings of the band as they traveled through the late ’70s cultural scene in Europe. The last section of the book updates the whereabouts of all the key players. The book includes dozens of full-color images of band memorabilia from the author's personal collection, including photos, posters, flyers, artwork, original lyrics, and more.

The gorgeous book depicts his totemic paintings and acrostics -- which delineate themes he's intoned about in the past -- including a climactic centerfold with two facing emblems after which the order of art / word shifts.

MASAHIKO KIKUNI

Heartbroken Angels

(Viz) Used hardcover book $50.00

Publishers Weekly’s describes this 2001 anthology of comics originally published (as English translations) in the first three issues of Pulp magazine thus: “Here’s a collection of off-color gags that’s at once charming, disgusting and laugh-out-loud funny…, a series of four panel one-liners set vertically two to a page, with an occasional series blown up over two full pages for striking visual effect. The lineup of endearing, albeit repulsive, characters includes a very young sex-crazed couple (the girl wears the ubiquitous Japanese school uniform) whose encounters parody presumptions of sexual innocence with punch lines about kinky fantasies and scatology. There’s a comics artist … whose sexual response is ritualistically heightened by humiliating comments about his minuscule penis. Then there’s a daft father and son duo so poor that the boy is reduced to using soy sauce as pigment for an art class assignment. Kikuni’s cute, cartoonish drawings work along with his twisted stories and characters to boost the strip’s shock value and to keep the humor fresh. His sensibility is reminiscent of the dark comedy of the old Mad and Cracked magazines, but nothing in those classics ever approached the guilty pleasures of this work.” Includes bonus material. 184pp.

The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer

(Pocket Books) Used paperback book $6.00

The diary chronicles Laura’s life from age 12 to her death at 17 and provides a harrowing backstory to the event that set the entire Twin Peaks television series in motion. In intimate diary entries, Laura goes from a happy and naïve tween to a tormented soul posing behind the phony smile of homecoming queen. Plagued by visions of a creepy man with long hair — a demonic presence she comes to know as “BOB” — Laura falls into a world of drug addiction, sexual promiscuity, and prostitution to escape. But as she’s swallowed deeper and deeper into the abyss, Laura is forced to question the reality of who and what BOB really is. From 1990. 184pp

JUNKO MIZUNO

Hansel & Gretel

(Koushinsya) Used paperback book $20.00

Japanese language manga from 2000 (later translated into English and published by Viz in 2003), marking a new phase in Mizuno’s art, with psychedelic hues that give the arresting story the feel of a dark dream. In Mizuno’s version, Hansel’s a squatty kid with a tuna can strapped over his mouth to prevent it from shattering everything around him, and Gretel’s a tall, pink-haired schoolgirl in a sailor suit who attacks bullies with a bamboo sword. Their parents run a mountain grocery store, fielding visits from green girls who grow spinach from their scalps, and from a 40-foot-tall piglet who slices cuts to order off his big belly. The arrival of Queen Marilyn and her insidious black magic tests H&G’s mettle like nothing else. Japanese language. 128 pages, full-color throughout.

The Toronto three-piece springs forth from the ether like a contradictory phantom with a warning about how far modern rock has strayed from the path.

FRED RINNE

Selections From Bands 1985 - 2001

(Chocolate Monk - choc.508) Magazine + CDR $15.00

Painter, clothing-defiler, visionary of hilarious takes on the conventions of wretched pop culture and the metastasizing celebrity of public figures, Rinne is best known as the vocalist and lyricist for a gooey mound of Bay Area bands that have been spreading their indelible stains and demented approaches since the 1980s. His unmistakable tone-deaf warble is half overripe takedown, half sado-masochistic simian yelp. And he absolutely despises eucalyptus trees. At last, the Left Coast’s number-one Hagar huffer and outsider art wonker delivers an A5 booklet of posters and flyers of his numerous brain-shattering bands, plus a disc of tunes by National Disgrace, The Bringdownzz, The Framptons, The Oswald, The Sentimentals and The Patchkordzz. “We wound up in a dirty garage surrounded by shredded wood, paint cans, old records,” recalls the meat puppet of the hour. “Tortured by years of fad pop, all we could do was fight it off, banging on empty cans and screaming, vomiting all the pop music back into the aether. By sanding, grinding or melting old farty records we could gain a new truth from them. The old farts were always going to be supplanted by new farts but the struggle for sonic truth lives on.” Numbered edition of 75

36 Fibulae

(Chocolate Monk - Choc.545) Magazine + Cassette $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

This gnostic-horror song cycle by the visual and sound artist employs malfunctioning home-built instruments in a series of asynchronous dream-logic miniature plays. Each World is a Drop World, measured in fibulae. Most are without words and many will eventually be expressed as jewelry. Select fibulae include: 1fibulae, a small Pennsylvania suburb in which humans grow prehensile tails with a large eye at the end à la Charles Fourier’s theory of the Archibras; 9fibulae, an exploration of the erotic pleasures of botany in a world without sound; 17fibulae, an innocent game that allows the viewer to see invisible intelligences in residues of protein via various household devices; 23fibulae, The Police are here again; 28fibulae, on the manufacturing of psychoactive pharmaceuticals from a reliquary housing the preserved corpse of a child posthumously revered as a saint; and 32fibulae, against the diseases of civilization. Since the mid-’00s Strong has been developing an approach to improvisation, instrument-building, and applying material from daily life to psycho-devotional purposes. He has performed in groupings such as Melkings, Eyes of the Amaryllis and Weyesbluhd/ Weyesblood, to name a few. He also operates the tape imprint Cor Ardens. Includes badge. Numbered edition of 50

Erewhon Calling: Experimental Sound in New Zealand

(CMR) paperback book $40.00 (Out-of-stock)

Bruce Russell-edited survey of how a bunch of antipodean misfits and malcontents have forged new ways and new reasons to make noise -- the full range of “non-standard” audio practices in contemporary NZ culture, from the borders of composed art music, through improvised noise, to deconstructed “rock’n pop filth,” and everything in-between. While not comprehensive (nor aiming to be), Erewhon Calling surpasses what anyone else has even attempted before. Artists and informed commentators mainly tell their own stories, describe their own work, and outline their own goals in working on the fringes of audio culture. Text / page works by Branden W. Joseph, Phil Dadson, Bruce Russell, Michael Morley, Byron Coley, Alastair Galbraith, Empirical, White Saucer, Clayton Noone, Andrew Clifford, Jeff Henderson, Daniel Beban and Nell Thomas, Su Ballard, Jon Bywater, Dan Vallor, Clinton Watkins, Witcyst, Andrew Scott, Campbell Kneale and Antony Milton, Vitamin S, Jon Dale, Mark Williams, Lee Noyes, Nathan Thompson, Beth Dawson, Sean O’Reilly, Kraus, Sean Kerr, Peter Stapleton, Stephen Clover, Dugal McKinnon, Omit, Peter Wright, Jo Burzynska, Ian-John Hutchinson, Kim Pieters, Paul Winstanley, Gentle Persuasion, Zoe Drayton, Simon Cuming, Stevie Kaye, Rachel Shearer, Richard Francis, Rosy Parlane, Kiran Dass, None Gallery, Zita Joyce, Mr. Sterile Assembly, Ben Spiers. 192 pages.
