Liver Sadness 7​/​12​/​98 Blitter Hrv

by Keith Fullerton Whitman

The Liver Sadness was a short-lived duo project by Stacy Rae Howe & Keith Fullerton Whitman; we played a handful of concerts around the Boston area & put out a CD-R on RSP of most of our collected recordings in an edition of 10 copies. We were very influenced by Conrad Schnitzler & the more improvised end of German Electronic Music, taking in influences from Dada & Fluxus & the like.

This, IMHO, is the best of the sessions; 35 minutes of Plunderphonics & Bass / Multi-Vox gating culminating into a gorgeous psychedelic wash, recorded in Twisted Village's back room during July 1998. Features long sections of Musique Concrète improv that were later chopped & folded into "Schöner Flußengel", but they work beautifully in their original unedited state as a transcendental voyage.

This DAT also includes the epic Blitter & Hrvatski collaborative track "Nuclear Cats Get New Home", recorded for the Lucky Kitchen compilation "Blip, Bleep (Soundtracks To Imaginary Videogames)", released the following May. This is one of my personal all-time favorite Hrvatski tracks, a live staple for years to come, heard here in its original fidelity for the first time.
