This show consists of a number of songs that were made by the Radio WORM Song Poem Crew at the STRP Festival in Eindhoven (november 2010). The theme was ’80ties cassette culture’ and the idea was that the audience could choose a genre from a menu, write a text, pay 3 euro’s, and then the Radio WORM Song Poem Crew would make the song with ‘original’ 80ties gear (the most advanced device being a 4track cassette machine), hence the ‘vintage’ sound qualities of the pieces. The song was delivered within a short time (5 – 30 minutes) to the client on cassette tape. The available genres on the menu were; Depressing Lo Fi Noise, Boring Art Shit, Early Happy Commodore, Gay Budget Beats, Industrial SM Love Songs, Echoïstic Melancholia Dub, Fucked Up Cassette Hardcore and Incredible Cheap Casio-Pop. There were 19 songs made in a few hours, the best of them you’ll find here. Text subjects vary from ode’s to leaving colleague’s, the impossibilities of having a love affair where one lives in Eindhoven and the other in Amsterdam, Statements about Radio Art, a Monty Cantsin Neoist Song and lots of boring and horrible poetry. Enjoy!
