Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 01 / Trk 09 / Get / Blurt

All things considered, replacing the bassline with horns is a rather rare move, so I set out to find a like-minded band. But instead of those stately French horns, I went looking for the squonk and bleat of the sax. And no one did bleat like Blurt.

Referred to as “paranoid jazz mutant funk,” Blurt spent the ’80s making some really amazing noise with a lo-fi, skeletal drummer/guitarist/batshit-crazy-singer structure. Where Smog asked his horns to play a backing rhythm, Blurt got theirs to buzz around and through the other parts like a drunken bee.

In other words, this track gives some opaque callbacks to previous ones in the mix, but injects a little anarchy. Let’s see where it goes from here.

About the NEIMT

Every couple of days, one of the NEIMT authors will post a song that is in some way a reaction to the previous song posted by another author. Every 15 songs will be packaged up with cover art and presented for download as a complete mix. The only rule is that no artist can appear more than once in the same volume.


The best way to be informed of NEIMT posts is to subscribe in the field in the upper right. You can also follow the page on facebook. We longer maintain an email list. Email is dead to us. We'd love to hear your feedback in the comments of this blog, but if you'd like to contact the NEIMT directly, email to: robb (at) agrayspace (dot) com.

About Copyright

We freely admit that this blog is probably a violation of artistic copyright law. We put together these mix "tapes" as way to share great music in a way that encourages artist support and utilizes grassroots promotion by purposefully violating those copyrights. We would like to imagine that no artist in their right mind would oppose such altruistic intentions despite its bureaucratic insubordinance.
