The Gordon Taylor, performing live at the 15th Anniversary Blas-Travaganza! Best 30 minutes of your night.
I review The Thrash-key Kids CD Release Show at Ducketts, for their new album “Free Abortions,” and rationalize why this show was amazing!
10 August. Save The Date.
Part II of our three-part presentation – “The Middle” is not available! Backed by The Dead Air Fresheners, we assault Slim’s with experimental wonder. Are you ready?
Mark your calendars. This is going to rule.
I went to a noisy punk show at Ducketts last night, and saw The Thrash-key Kids spill beer everywhere, and delivery loud and sloppy punk rock. Here’s a small taste.
Day 2 at Slim’s contained a theme, in three acts, delivered by Myself & Dead Air Fresheners. This is Part I: “The Beginning.” Let it grab ya.
Jumping forward in time to day two, we have the interstellar sounds of Moth Hunter, live from Slim’s. He brought some serious noise to the party, and was a welcome treat in the final act of our show. You won’t want to miss this.
And now: The videos! Kicking things off, we have the complete set by The Nervous, available only on our recently-launched Channel. Thanks again to The Nervous PDX, and enjoy this slice of the Blas-Travaganza.
I’m collecting and gathering media from the Blas-Travaganza last weekend, and some amazing pictures and recordings are starting to surface. I’m working on organizing everything myself, but I make this request: if you, or someone you know, captured any A/V from the show (of any kind), please let me know! I would love to incorporate it into the podcast / video project I’m now working on.
The last thing heard at the Blas-Travaganza is the third installment of my collaborations with The Dead Air Fresheners, “The End,” now available for stream and download. Thanks again for your patience, everyone! Video coming soon!
Headlining Day 2 of the Blas-Travaganza: The Gordon Taylor! Probably my favorite band ever, you can stream or download their entire performance here and now. Enjoy!
The incomparable Moth Hunter, performing live as part of the 15th Anniversary Blas-Travaganza. This one will split your skull open, and pour in electric wonder that will stick with you for days to come. Available for stream or download.
The second performance by Dead Air Fresheners and myself is now ready for your listening enjoyment! “The Middle” marks the half-way point in this incredible show, and DAF is in full form. For stream or download!
More rumblings from the Blas-Travaganza: Alpha Protist! Kind enough to fill in at the last minute, they brought the full rock experience of their stripped-down sound to Slim’s, and blew everyone out of their seats. The full performance is here, for stream or download. Enjoy! (Repaired Link!)
Rockin’ and rollin’ out of the garage, we are proud to present: Snatch Wagon! This all-girl rock trio presented a fantastic rock opera, and you can hear it all in this fantastic podcast, downloadable or streaming. Are you ready to meet a Crank Skank? Tune in, and find out…

Day 2 was kicked off by a collaboration between myself and The Dead Air Fresheners! I’ve been working with these guys recently, and they were kind enough to be my backing band during this strange and wonderful event. You can stream or download the first part of our trilogy from this evening, “The Beginning.” Enjoy!
Continuing to bring you the early days of our program: the existing 1999 Season! Unfortunately, there are few complete recordings from this era of the program, and what exists are available at these two links. More awkward first steps, radio style. Authentic radio from the ’90s. Enjoy!
For the first time in a streaming, downloadable format: the 1998 Season! While many of these shows are incomplete, or pieced together, the remaining clips are now available for your enjoyment. Listen as our program begins its first, tentative steps toward what it is today!
Now available for your listening pleasure: Blasphuphmus Radio’s 2006 Season! All the existing shows! I got through my math-rock phase, bring in acts like Dr. Frank, Wendy Atkinson, The New Bloods, Ashtray & Mustaphamond, and begin my collaborations with Ricardo Wang and “What’s This Called?” This was a busy, busy years, my friends, and you can find nearly all of it at this link. Enjoy!
Day 1 of our Blas-Travaganza was closed out by the immortal Guyve, and you can now stream or download their entire set. I cannot say enough nice things about them, and if you know what’s good for you, listen to all 50 minutes of their incredible instru-metal set.
Thrust is ready for streaming or download into your earholes. Playing entirely lubed up and ready for some slamming action, Thrust delivers a full set of psychedelic indie-rock madness. Thanks again for these guys, who came all the way from Eugene for this show.
“The Contractual Obligation Reunion.” Get the entire performance by the avant-weirdos who can’t leave well enough alone. Cathead will only ever perform again on our 50th Anniversary, so until then, you’ll have to enjoy this rare oddity.
Because I could not wait any longer, here’s the first post from the Blas-Travaganza: The Nervous! This contains their entire set, and a link to some photos. (Video coming soon.) Available for stream or download, for a limited time! (Link to photos, too.) Thanks again, The Nervous PDX!
If grind is a little more your style, then might I recommend the concise set by Eugene demolition artists, /root_DIR! Clocking in at less that 18 minutes (including my introduction / and outroduction), they figuratively blew the top off of East End, and literally played an amazing show. You can relive the glory – for now – at this helpful link. Enjoy!

Thanks again everyone for a magnificent Blas-Travaganza! I had a great time, and I’m plenty tired now to show for it. The photos I took (or have been sent to me) are up, but please keep ’em coming. Audio and video are coming soon. In the meantime: take care. You guys are wonderful, you guys are beautiful, and without you, there would be no show.
Be seeing you.
The Gordon Taylor, closing out the final part of the show.
Moth Hunter, tearing shit up at Slim’s last night as part of the Blas-Travaganza.
Snatch Wagon delivers their masterpiece, “The Crank Skank Cycle.”

Guyve melted our minds at the end of Day 1, and it really turned out to be an incredible show. Thanks!
Batting fourth: Thrust, from Eugene!
A long lost classic from the ’90’s is brought back to life at East End. Thanks Kristin, who filmed this. Anyone else have any A/V they shot from the show?
The 20th Anniversary performance of Cathead!
A/V Club Round 2: /root_DIR!
A/V Club Round 1: The Nervous!
The fun’s not over yet! Tonight, Day 2 of the Blas-Travaganza contains some amazing performances, including Dead Air Fresheners, Alpha Protist, Snatch Wagon, Moth Hunter, and Gordon Taylor! This one’s free, and we’ll have download codes for our digital comp, Lost In The Supermarket, available at a reduced price! Join the fun, it should be amazing. Don’t Miss It!
If you have any A/V from last night’s show, please let me know! I’m collecting bits and pieces here and there, but every little bit helps. Thanks again everyone!
Get pumped for tonight’s show.
Our Blas-Travaganza begins TODAY! Not only my birthday celebration, we have just released our first digital comp Lost In The Supermarket, available for the first time. Our show tonight at East End features The Nervous PDX, /root_DIR, a reunion performance of Cathead, Thrust, and headlining, Guyve. All being recorded for a live podcast. Help me celebrate the one year anniversary of Dick Clark’s death, at 9 PM sharp!
With 20 artists providing the entertainment, it’s hard to mention all the great talent on this comp in one post. Here’s a few more: The Nervous PDX, Toggy & The Hogwylds (Tage Savage), Library of Congress, a long-lost recording by The Miss, Dry Cleaners, The Graves of Gehenna, Sailboats & Moth Hunter (Trevor Rudd)! You can get the whole thing for $8, and admission to the East End show tomorrow!
A download code for Lost In The Supermarket is free with the admission price at the East End show. HOWEVER, if you purchase a download of our compilation before the show, and bring your receipt to the show, you get in free! It’s sort of like a pre-order deal. Either way, you get something extra for your dollar, and the Slim’s show is still FREE! At this point, you just CAN’T refuse.
The finishing touches on our first digital comp. are finally done, and I can reveal to you the beauty that is: Lost In The Supermarket! 18 artists providing original music, such as Guyve, /root_DIR, JJCnV, Dead Air Fresheners, Josh Jones, Nil Admirari, Honey Vizer, Iarvles, Paco Music, and a host of others. Don’t wander too close to the produce, and you’ll be just fine.
A number of celebrations are also happening along with our 15th Anniversary Blas-Travaganza. Two bands are reuniting, and we’re releasing our first digital comp. It’s also one year since Dick Clark’s death, and Guyve’s 20th year as a band. It’s also my 38th birthday celebration. Help me kick off the next 15 years by joining us this weekend for a party you won’t soon forget.
And now, we bring you a commercial.
And, rounding out the performances from “What’s This Called?,” the super-group Death Pact Jazz Ensemble. At a length that is nearly the total of the two previous performances combined, this is wonderful loud bliss at its finest. Play in a silent room, very quietly, on headphones.
Following up our last post, here is a soul-shaking performance by Overdose The Katatonic on “What’s This Called?” Lennon’s comment on the end is exactly how I feel all the time. Enjoy!
From Saturday’s “What’s This Called?” performance, Holy Filament. Concise, experimental music from Seattle. The latest addition to the Blasphuphmus Radio video jukebox.
The show is this Friday, and things are starting to ramp up! I’m dropping all sorts of stuff this week in terms of historic content to blasphuphmusradio.com, including some stuff that has NEVER been heard since it was first broadcast. Our 15th Anniversary Celebration begins NOW, so keep it locked.
It’s our 15th Birthday today! It all started in Eugene, OR, on KWVA. Here is a partial reconstruction of what is left of that fateful broadcast. Really? 15 years? Seems like it was earlier this morning…
Preaching The Gospel w/ The Dead Air Fresheners

If you don’t have any weekend plans, Saturday is your day for Experimental awesomeness. First, tune in to What’s This Called? with Ricardo Wang on kpsu.org, where I’ll be running sound for Overdose the Katatonic and The Holy Filament. Then, I would love to see ya’ll at Habesha Lounge for a crazy Noise Show! I am the special guest of The Dead Air Fresheners, preaching the Blasphuphmus gospel, but there’s lots more happening too. Get your fill of experimental fun!

Just dropped: DJ Really Sloppy gives us an overview of Wondercon, an event he attended recently. DJ Really Sloppy has been absent from the show recently, and it’s a real treat to have him back, even for 20 minutes. Available for stream or download.
I less than three John Hodhman.
Hey guys. I will be delivering a Blasphuphmus Sermon at this show. If you’ve ever wondered what The Church of Blasphuphmus (Not Jesus) was all about, then you can pretend this sermon explains it all! Plus: there will be lots of other cool bands. It should be a lot of fun. See you there!
Now available for your listening pleasure: the entire 2005 archive! All of our existing shows are now available for download! In 2005, our show took on a decidedly “Nuggets” theme, but having taken over Live Friday, you can also expect live performances from people like Thee Headliners, Book of Maps, The Grannies, Mustaphamond, The Soviettes, Lana Rebel, and interviews with Murph of Dinosaur Jr. and The Minibosses! This was an incredible year, and you can hear it all, now!
And, here is our 2004 Podcast feed, if you’re into that sort of thing.
