Binary Partners New Music Throbbing Gristle Brion Gysin Burroughs

Paisley Babylon Remix of Binary Partners “Let Those Asses Know We’re In Here”

Paisley Babylon has been hard at work in the studio doing a number of projects including mixing and remixing a new album by Binary Partners. Details on that are coming soon, but suffice it to say that the record is heavily influenced by the philosophies of Burroughs, Gysin, and early electronic music pioneers. There is plenty of sonic madness on offer and BP are releasing bits and pieces of their studio work in anticipation of the new album.

Here’s one such outtake from the Binary Partners sessions of late 2012 and early 2013. “Let Those Asses Know We’re In Here” is a pagan tribute to all that is irreverent, blasphemous, and improper. This version features instrumentation, cutups and other manipulations by Paisley Babylon.

Theremin Vs. Turntable: Paisley Babylon Equipment Test

Just as with my former fellow bandmates in Crevice, when it’s time to do Paisley Babylon stuff in the rehearsal space, it’s an EQUIPMENT TEST rather than a rehearsal. Well, perhaps that’s not ENTIRELY true–Paisley Babylon does have an improvisational aspect to it but it’s not ALL off-the-cuff…plenty of structure hiding in there.

Here’s one shot recently with the new theremin. Paisley Babylon’s gear list for this video includes a portable, battery operated turntable with a vinyl LP of DJ battle breaks supplying the drum track, all other noises produced by theremin and MicroKorg.

DJ Paisley Babylon Vinyl Mashup Mix

The very latest DJ Paisley Babylon mix/mashup/curated audio weirdness is available for a limited time on YouTube. This one’s full of insanity including a cut from the Willie Nelson reggae album Countryman, a bit of classic John Trubee and the Ugly Janitors of America, some deliciousness from Marshall McLuhan, KLF remixed, Bowie, much more.

As I always say…have turntables, will travel. Need sounds like these? Get in touch with me about booking and availability: jwallace (at) turntabling (dot) net.
