Kids. 2 quick videos from SpleenCoffin Fest last week in Baltimore. First up os my usual “hands-only” documentation of the sound system. For some reason I was inclined to play under the name of “True French,” which is actually the name of my bike. Not a long story. It’s a vintage Motobecane, made in France, as opposed to the current offerings of said brand, not made in France. Two reasons for that. First, when I was booked, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do. Second, while I’ve mostly been simply playing as myself on the rare occasions when I have played out in the last few years, there’s something about letting your given name dangle around on the usual noise rosters, designed to shock and awe. I’d normally just use the old “vsls” moniker, but I always used a laptop in my vsls sets. This is hardware. Is there a difference? Is it a new project? At this point, I don’t think I play out enough for it to really matter. Gotta get on that. Anyhoo, second vid is Pau’s multi fungi set from night two. I rode shotgun on Eurorack/Bugbrand last minute, but the project is most definitely hers. Yammering subsides. Look at moving pictures now.
