An entire month’s worth of Gates, for your listening enjoyment:
4/7: a night of ambient music, minimalism and musique concrète, with Brian Eno, Steve Reich, John Cage, Phillip Glass, Alvin Lucier, and others. See Jessica’s description and videos in a previous post.
4/14: Jessica’s friends Doc Brown and the Deloreans play a live set for the first hour of the show, followed by music from The Groundhogs, Bizarros, Exuma, Dali’s Car (formed by former members of New Wave bands Bauhaus and Japan), Robert Wyatt, and Family Fodder.
4/21: a surprisingly awesome song by Chumbawamba, long before the noisome “Tub Thumping,” from back when they were an anarcho-punk band, in which they criticize nearly every famous rock star of the time; rock progressivo Italiano band Osage Tribe, named after a Native American nation, which makes sense when you hear the slightly racist “Injun”-esque intro; Emerson Lake & Palmer, Captain Beefheart, and David Axelrod; and most significantly, a selection from “Singring and the Glass Guitar: An Electric Fairytale,” an epically corny piece by Todd Rundgren’s Utopia (more on that later).
4/28: the last show of the year! Gates of Delirium has the special honor of signing WUOG out for the ‘09-’10 school-year at midnight, and we ended it as blissfully as we could. Gong, Soft Machine, 10cc, Amon Duul II, King Crimson, Kevin Ayers, Todd Rundgren, and a special selection for the last song: the very namesake of the show, “The Gates of Delirium” by Yes!
