Episode 09: The Long Lightning pt. 4

The continuation of The Long Lightning by Erik Blagsvedt as read by M0ssy Tr0n. Abstract poetry read out loud. Remember when you worked in a small redeemer stymie–a yobbo—ago, before everything switched to ginger, and you had your own mini moxie in voluptuous respirators? We think you have ‘big earthworms’ and would be a good prognosticator but your bimbo detector is just generality and crazy as soybeans. So, this might just be the remedy.

This episode was written by Erik Blagsvedt and Bjor6n Oranj. It features a soundscape created by Bosky Rumbluffer.

Episode 07: Björ6n Oranj Meets The Creeping Man

The Creeping Man experiments with sound and creates sonic mayhem–mostly in the dark ambient mode. Further, The Creeping Man is the work of one person. This person has a name and a collection of, or maybe, just one pair of off-white, thermal, long underwear. Although deeply secretive, over-all distrustful and a bit of a recluse, The Creeping Man, or rather, a person probably in off-white, thermal, long underwear, did contact long-time collaborator Bjor6n Oranj via some sort of ham radio device to discuss his latest work– A Hit or Miss Proposition. Meandering through a bizarre set of topics including hit men, detective novels & the plight of the artist, this interview is the only recorded glimpse into the inner workings of this creative visionary.
