NOTE--THIS IS NOT A BEATLES' ALBUM!!

This is the double album-length 'Narco edit' of an original 3-hour program recorded live in the KPFA studios on April 23rd, 2010 for Negativland's radio show 'Over the Edge'. In attendance was TradeMark Gunderson of The Evolution Control Committee, Phineas Narco of The National Cynical Network, Don Joyce of Negativland and Wobbly of... Wobbly (Jon Leidecker aka Mr. Chemistry Homework).

It is a frantic mashup and collage of all things by and about The Beatles: samples, sounds, effects, clips, snippets and whatnot. Some, post-production work has been done on it from the original recording.

This effort is an abstract commentary and criticism of The Beatles mythos. Inspired by Big City Orchestra's 1993 Release 'Beatlerape' which can be found here:

www.discogs.com/Big-City-Orkestraw-Beatlerape/release/770959.

The tracks are meant to fit on two 80 min. length CD-R's and can be burned to such. A short file track saying 'End of Part 1' is at the demarcation point and can be added into a hard copy of the project, or not.

The title track, Track 2 of the entire program ("The BEATLESnuff") is the longest sequence upon which the program was built. It was performed live at the Big City Orchestra 30th Anniversary Show, some 3 months prior, at the Cafe DuNord in San Francisco (January 30th, 2010). It was rehearsed several times before performance and played once on KFJC live. This version available here is the (to date) final and IMHO the best and most developed performance of the piece.

If you acquire this entire program, you get the all tracks, the cover artwork and a short .mp4 format video of the radio show in progress as it was being broadcast live as videotaped by Puzzling Evidence.
This program is meant to be listened to, and taken, as a whole work, artistic in nature. Subsequently, more derivative tracks are not available separately.

All derived and referenced material used herein is meticulously accredited and/or fragmented / transformed / re-contextualized, and/or remixed from its original form, and is used fairly as a cultural reference in the subtext, and artistic narrative, of this unique 'syntopical' arrangement.

Any proceeds from this work are considered donations to express appreciation for, and to help support, the expenses of the project this program is a part of, and the creative work behind it, and is not a prerequisite fee in exchange for content.

Thank you for listening, and thank you for your support.

Track Name: NCN - Goodnight
Now it's time to say good night
Good night Sleep tight
Now the sun turns out his light
Good night Sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you.

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
Good night Sleep tight
Now the moon begins to shine
Good night Sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you.

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
Good night Sleep tight
Now the sun turns out his light
Good night Sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you
