This week on Best in Show- This Song Is a Mess But So Am I (x2!)
This week on Humorless Productions presents Best in Show I'll be playing two recordings if This Song Is a Mess But So Am I, both recorded at The Smell in Los Angeles and only a few months apart in early 2007.
This Song Is a Mess was Freddy Ruppert's first musical project, and quickly gained legendary status after having released only one full length album and a smattering of tracks on a couple EPs and split releases. His renown was cemented not so much by his studio output, but more so by his incredibly energetic and captivating live performances, two of which you'll hear this coming Sunday on my Mixlr channel including his final formal performance as This Song Is a Mess.
Freddy continues to make music using the name Former Ghosts which has more of a melodic, melancholy synth-pop style as opposed to the more aggressive experimental industrial sounds of This Song Is a Mess.
First up on Sunday will be the recording from the 20th of January, 2007 and the second will be from the 26th of May from that same year, which was his final performance before starting Former Ghosts. I'm playing both because they each clock in at about 25 minutes, so it'll be a well spent hour.
This Sunday at 4pm PST on http://mixlr.com/humorless-productions/
