There's a lot of slapping air bass around WFMU these days, not unlike what Alan Partridge does listening to Gary Numan in his trailer (You Tube link). We're not ashamed, either. Blues Control equals the alter-ego of Lea Cho and sometime-WFMU fill-in DJ Russ Waterhouse who also record under the name electronics/drone outfit Watersports. Blues Control is their mojo release, a bit closer to Dead C than Dicky Betts (though somehow linking the two for sure), and have a cassette out on the Palsy label that's been getting some attention around these parts. While the A-side features two killer workouts that evoke the sound of John Popper's flyin' guts hitting the wall of BB King's club when someone puts a bomb in his fanny pack, the B is "Losing Game" (MP3), a completely ridiculous endless loop culled from an Electric Flag (Mike Bloomfield's band) CD Russ bought at a CVS Pharmacy. Hence the air bass madness we are all raging. You should feel it too. Blues Control play tomorrow night at North Six in Brooklyn with Plastic Crimewave Sound and the Bible (the latter featuring Oneida/Awesome Color members); a full length album is in the works for SF's Holy Mountain label, and you can learn more about the Blues here.
