about

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.
______________

Dislcaimer: This is NOT a Beatles release. This program is wholly a piece of collaborative artistic expression put together by Phineas Narco & The National Cynical Network and the listed parties and is meant to be heard in its entirety. All source material is either remixed, excerpted, or re-contextualized, and is used fairly for the purpose of criticism and commentary of said material as expressed through its uniquely subjective, re-contextualized, and thematically syntopical arrangement.

This program is intended to capture and synthesize the cultural conversation about the subject matter in its media environment at the time of it's creation, as seen through the subjective lens of its creator(s).

This program is not for profit. Any proceeds are considered donations supporting this artistic work, and go back to support the expenses of the NCN project.

Track Name: ECC - What Would You Think If I Sang Auto Tune?
Billy Shears...

What would you do if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song,
And I'll try not to sing out of key.
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm,I get high with a little help from my friends,
Mmm, gonna try with a little help from my friends.

What do I do when my love is away?
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day?
(Are you sad because you're on your own?)
No, I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm, get high with a little help from my friends,
Mmm, gonna to try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody?
I need somebody to love.
Could it be anybody?
I want somebody to love.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
Ooh, I get high with a little help from my friends
Yes I get by with a little help from my friends,
with a little help from my friends.
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
