Portland was being invaded by overt fascists, seemingly under police protection. This undercurrent was slithering beneath the songs below. Sonic waves as a shelter and cocoon of resistance.  A bit heavy in the krautrock (mind these guys are all leftist anarchists), a bit heavy in general, lots of Portland experimenters, Jamaica, NYC, Nashville, Italy, and France represent. Joy is the sound of intransigence.

About Ricardo Wang

I began doing Public/Community/College radio at KUGS FM in Bellingham, WA in 1985 and was there until 1987. I spent 10 years at KAOS FM in Olympia, WA from 1993-2003 including a one year stint as Music Director. During that entire time, I did the What's This Called? program, at times for as long as 6 hours in a single night! I've been doing the show at KPSU since 2005 and they will have to pry it from my cold dead hands to get me to stop. I started the Olympia Experimental Music Festival in 1995 and have been playing music off and on in the Dead Air Fresheners since 1997. I'm thrilled to be on the air and the internet at KPSU and part of such an exciting community of creative folks.
