Bodycocktail - "Toss Me In The Air,I'll Pay!" (ZH27 - Bodycocktail #44) 1997

Bodycocktail's pop odyssey continues with tape number 44 of 177, and counting,albums. Like most of Zan Hoffman's projects, an album consists of one long track on a single side of a C60,and this is no exception.
A horrible 90's synth hammers out a disjointed riff for the first seven minutes, while Zan gives an accurate impression of Stan Ridgeway (that bloke from Wall of Voodoo) in a padded cell at the funny farm. The track devolves from there, into a chaotic mash up of Pop melody and heavily effected noise(provided by Minoy).
One can imagine a Throng (or whatever the collective noun is?) of Pop consumers, hearing this and getting angry,unreasonably fuming! Maybe then they'll understand how it feels for lovers of non-product art to have the rapist manifesto's of Robin Thicke ,or the paedo propaganda of Miley Cyrus inflicted upon them!?

Couldn't agree more with your sentiment on pop music/culture. Unfortunately sex sells and the accompanying soundtrack is getting shittier and shittier. Aimed too at a younger and younger audience.All the best Jonny.

My brother-in-law semt me this last month. Pretty well sums up most people's reaction I think. I guess that's why so many creative artists have a desire to do the same to pop pap in general.

Thanks all....i hope there will be more worlds to open up,but it ain't looking good. Its after the end of the post war renaissance. The newer worlds to open up will come in (spit!) the video game arena.
