Loss & His Ill-Advised Monochord Orchestra - Serviceable
Loss" is but one entry in a never-ending stream of pseudonyms
for a multi-instrumentalist, pointlessly-trained composer and
sometimes-academic who has wasted his life on music. His Ill-Advised
Monochord Orchestra is actually just multiple live / unedited
overdubs of an 8-string Allen Melbert lap steel guitar in a ridiculous
tuning for which it was never designed (Mr. Loss begs that you
not judge the lap steel as an instrument by his contribution to
Add Rhythm II). More of Mr. Loss's infrequently-created music,
none of which sounds even remotely like "S. S. Samba,"
can be heard at his website http://lossfoundation.com,
with a smattering of other, thankfully brief recent experiments
- Repurse the Pass
was founded in 1998 with the aim to bring together adventurous
multi-instrumentalists who are as much in love with analogue synthesisers
and electronics as they are with guitars, percussion and traditional
instruments to play catchy, exotic, messy, experimental pop.

far too many records to be ignorant of this, he holes up in his
bunker tinkering with formulas in vain to find the neu. Lately
he has noticed the rest of the world merely rehashing the same
old stuff brazenly but with a change of trouser tightness, and
then bashing the proles into submission with social media and
strange jerky visuals. Out of bitterness, in 2013 he has now finally
decided to join in and set things straight with some fifth generation
Zep riffs, crude Django guitar, half-baked indian music ripoffs
and some truly tight trouserage.
be damned, its nice to get out of the bunker once in a while for
some fresh air...

Since then she has made a career out of acting the goat; she is
Aries after all. As a child all she ever wanted was a twin, but
she engulfed her only chance at one very early on as a prepartum
