E-mail Print PDF

We're plunging into 1997 with the latest two episodes of Brainwashed Radio: The Podcast Edition.

There's so much awesome music from 1997 that it would be a great disservice to only present an hour of music, so it has been split up into two episodes.

Music comes from Panasonic, Trans Am, Labradford, Nurse With Wound & Aranos, Laika, Dark Magus, Mouse On Mars, Aerial M, Low, Scala, GusGus, Fridge, Can, The Sea And Cake, He Said Omala, Songs: Ohia, Godflesh, Jessamine, Scorn, Bowery Electric, The Third Eye Foundation, and Windy & Carl.

Thanks for listening and don't forget to vote in the Brainwashed Annual Readers Poll: 1997 Rewind!

Bloom Offering, "Episodes"

E-mail Print PDF

cover image When Jim Haynes, head of the always fascinating Helen Scarsdale Agency, told me he would be releasing an almost pop record on the label, I was a bit surprised.  Here is a label that, over the past 15 years, has perfected the sound of rusting, rotting audio.  But with recent Ekin Fil releases hinting at a growing interest in musicality, the idea began to seem less bizarre.  The first proper vinyl album from Nicole Carr (also known as Bloom Offering) fits perfectly in this niche.  More conventional sounding than usual, but still experimental and challenging in its own way, it is a brilliant record that stands out among the best albums this year.

1997 Rewind: Vote Round Open

E-mail Print PDF

It's uncharted territory for us, as we didn't do a readers poll in 1997, but the time has come.

Vote round is now open!

This vote round will be open until December 15th. After that we will hopefully be ready to tackle the 2018 year in music. We appreciate all the readers who have taken the poll seriously over the years. Please continue to show respect for the staff and contributors to brainwashed and the work that goes into these polls. Hating and ballot-stuffing is uncool and swiftly deleted.

Thanks again for your attention and participation.

Hardy Fox (1945-2018)

E-mail Print PDF

We are saddened by the loss of Hardy Fox of The Residents.

Our hearts go out to all of Hardy's friends and family and thank him for his years of the weird and absurd.

From The Residents Web site:

It is with with great sorrow and regret that The Cryptic Corporation announces the passing of longtime associate, Hardy Fox. As president of the corporation from 1982-2016, the company benefited from Hardy's instinct for leadership and direction, but his true value came from his longtime association with The Residents. As the group's producer, engineer, as well as collaborator on much of their material, Fox's influence on The Residents was indelible; despite any formal training, his musicality was nevertheless unique, highly refined and prolific. Blessed with a vital sense of aesthetics, a keen ear, and an exquisite love of the absurd, Hardy's smiling face was a constant source of joy to those around him. He will be missed.

After a series of recent health problems, Hardy succumbed to a brief illness. He is survived by his husband, Steven Kloman.
