It’s day 4 of the Great Podcast Releasathon 2012!(tm), and this is episode 88, Prong and Spittle, featuring Bobobobobob on Sequential Circuits Prophet synthesizer, William Davis on electric kazoo through Chaos Pad, Paul Cane on ukelele through guitar pedals, and myself on Boss RC-50 Looper, SK-1, bent sleep machine, and bent audio book. Prong and Spittle was the 11th episode of the WRVU era of Theatre Intangible, recorded April 6th 2008. Listening to this gets me nostalgic for the early WRVU crew. William Davis and Paul Cain have since moved away from Nashville. [Update 2012-07-23. Paul tells me he’s back in Nashville!] Bobobobobob has been keeping busy refinishing his house after the 2010 flood, but he tells me the repairs are almost complete. I hope to have him on again soon! There’s nothing quite so wonderful as a well-tempered 70’s analog synth.

Check back tomorrow for a WIDB-era episode in which we spoofed a Christian call in show.

You’re in for a treat folks. Because for podcast 41 we’ve unearthed the most tumultuous, drama-filled episode of Theatre Intangible’s history: Random and Nameless Awesome Adventure That Never Happened. The actors rebeled against the show. Someone walked out. We broke a $2000 piece of studio equipment. 14 players jammed in the WRVU studios. Good times.

Listen as we summon the spirits of the oldtime radio plays!. . . except, not really. Capturing the vibe of radio plays such as The Shadow was what I was actually going for, but the improv actors had other ideas. I’m still not quite sure when they were being serious and when they were acting. And that, oddly enough, is what makes everything so interesting. For a long time, I felt this show to be a failure, but listening back now, I kind of like it . . . in a Waiting For Godot meets Holy Mountain kind of way.

Musicians include Cody Bottoms, Paul Cain, Rhendi Greenwell, Bobobobobob, Wes and Ember White, Anderson Cook, and Wess Youngblood. The actors preferred to go by their “stage” names, which are Random Voight (Brandon Boyd), L’Orange (The Human Snowglobe JJ Jones), Nameless, and Rick.

Prepare yourself.

Kicking off Theatre Intangible Halloweird! October is the 1st Annual Halloween Extravaganza, a WRVU podcast broadcast around Halloween 2008. To prepare for this show, we sent out cheap digital recorders with T.I. correspondents to capture their Halloween nights. We assembled the recordings and met at WRVU to improv around them. I sprained my ankle pretty fierce right before Halloween; thus, my recording featured me at my house, complaining about not being able to go out. When we taped the show at WRVU, I hobbled around on crutches, in some serious pain but high on the magic going down.

The 1st Annual Halloween Extravaganza features Cody Bottoms, Brey McCoy, Lawrence Crow, and Charlie Rauh. The field correspondents were Paul Cain, Cody Bottoms, Richard Harper, Wes White, and myself.

Today’s podcast is Degenerates, the 25th podcast and 4th episode of the WRVU era — originally broadcast December 2nd, 2007.   The players are William Davis from Oh No It’s Howard; Cody Bottoms from The Manpower, A Parade, and more; Paul Cain; and myself.  Jacob Riley also contributed some sounds via phone.  I did the live mixing, editing, and mastering.

The theme of Degenerates is. . . you guessed it. .  . degeneration.  We recorded samples and  copied them through multiple generations.  We ran them through multiple passes of distortion.   We wanted to see how far we could use and abuse sounds.  The result is one of the nastiest, dingiest, dirtiest sounding shows we’ve ever done; it’s also one of our best.
