quietism


shhh, its late

perhaps its time for some "quietism" -
the practise of resigning oneself to mental inactivity
to bring the soul into direct unity with God.

well if that sounds a bit out of reach
why not try this wee enigmatic radio show instead

Beach Boys - Magic Transistor Radio
Those Poor Bastards - Black Dog Yodel
Sans Soleil - Sahara VHF
Isan - No.1 Lent et douloureux (Satie)
Kingston Trio - Those who are wise
Brian Eno - Menace
Bary Manilow - Mandy
Helios - Light House
Juana Molina - Rio Seco
Bo Diddley - Aztec
Arty Fufkin - All I need is a smile (Air and Lily Allen)
Julie London - In the wee small hours of the morning
Seamus Ennis - The wounded Hussar (air)

Dweller.. What the fuck?? this is J. I don't know if you remember me or not, but I'm from old-school AMW. Dr. Jimmy? Mr. Beefy? Anyhow now, I did a search on my old-school (the good period of early inventive techno) techno songs and found Vibrating Cancer Pants on your site. Maybe you are the only one who feels the way I do about the early 90's - whatever... Send me music - I will send you the whole album that that song was on (Mr. Evil Fish Pants - Playtime). wondernuts@gmail.com
I know.

Hey thanks for stopping by J. I occasionally drop an AMW number in the mix.

That place was so great back then in 2000/2001 and the homegrown music was always a bonus.

I was very much into early 90s and mid 90s techno.
I don't think it has progressed or developed much since then. Perhaps the crazy speed of DnB and all its experimental offshoots, but that was mid-late 90s anyhow...

Thanks for the play! Looking forward to hearing the whole show.

just been teaching quietism with my philosophy students... they seem to be getting on well with it... i think his kind of atheistic existentialism appeals to even the most essentialist of them...

cool mixes btw

Thanks for the compliment Loki. It means a lot coming from the creator of
my favourite music blog Idiots Guide to Dreaming
