Tape Jazz Massacre


Whatthahahahahell?

Why not do a bit more cross-promotion?

Straight from the top rung of Thee ButterScotch Threshold ladder, howzabout a link or more to TAPE JAZZ MASSACRE, the dynamic duo of sampling sonics, 100% (or close enough for Jazz) copyright infringed audio...Ornette Yukahiro does most of the musical slicing and dicing, while Big Jimmmmi Cakefingers has the painstaking task of cutting up the spoken word stuff into fork-friendly chunks of chocolately-smooth concrete...

I think the guys reached their peak with Cookin' With Tape Jazz Massacre (shit, apostrophes make for bad links), on which Ornette sampled alot of Jazz...more Jazz than he ever had sampled before, and Big Jimmmmi served heapin' plates of word salad cut liberally from cooking shows and whatnot...

Of course, more than one person I know prefers 2003's Electro:Quote, another concept album, this one dedicated to television and politics...

The boys have been laying low the past year...After 2005's Antique Technique, which re-imagines The Saint, an old radio show starring Vincent Price, as The Aint...But I have it on good authority that before the end of 2007 we might be witness to a brand new TJM longplayer...Rumor has it the album is called Bakin' With Tape Jazz Massacre (no link available at this time) , and yeah, it's a sequel of sorts to Cookin'...

And finally, I have to mention The Special Jellies...The Special Jellies are/were a project/object/band I did with Ornette back in the winter of 2001/2002 while Big Jimmmmi was ice-fishing on Big Cedar Lake...Essentially, I sang the lyrics of some favorite songs from the 1980's, while Ornette provided random sampled accompaniment NOT confined to that decade...It's part-karaoke, part-mashup, I guess, and my singing is half-honorable, half-horrible...
So, there ya go...some links to assorted pages in the TJM section of Thee BST...Feel free to listen to any number of mp3's from all their releases...Six in total at the moment, seven if you include the unreleased Shit You Don't Hear At Parties compilation, and eight if you include Absolut Massacre, which is Tape Jazz Massacre's complete output from 1996-2006, and unfortunately only available to friends and journalists...I've got TWO copies, babycakes!
Hotcha!
Hank
