(Photo of Vulcanus 68 by Lars Knudson) For the second time in as many years, Blanketship stopped by WFMU for a live display of plunderphonic auditory science. The set aired this past Monday on Liz B's show. Check out the complete archive for an interview, where Blanketship (aka Jared Bloom) discussed, among other things, the influence of WFMU's own People Like Us on his approach to sound collage. Now we've chopped the audio into downloadable mp3s that we'd like to share with you (Thanks to Mike F for the slicing and tagging!)

Brian Turner posted mp3s from the new Blanketship/Qulfus collaboration, Motown Meltdown, on the blog a few months ago (link). Here are a few more treats from the Gigante Sound goodie bag

Gigante Sound has also released music from Sunshine Militant Childrens Hour, the electronic alterego of the Militant Childrens Hour one-man-rock-band. Beware the hypnotic message of "Shit Your Pants".

And here's a live set from Vulcanus 68, built around the core duo or Jared and Dominic, one of many mp3s available at the Gigante Sound website.
