Sissy Spacek/Smegma
Ballast
CD
Helicopter, H 88

Ace Farren Ford, Dennis Duck, and Ju Suk Reet Meate (three original members) are joined by Rock ’N’ Roll Jackie (35 years in the band), John Wiese (approximately 10 years), and a cast of others form the current third phase Smegma. Personnel of this album, “Ballast”, consists of this line-up plus Charlie Mumma, a member of Sissy Spacek since 2008.

The source material of “Ballast” was recorded at home and on the Los Angeles radio station Dublab, but what we hear is not exactly Smegma and Sissy Spacek performing together as a live group. Wiese’s production of the recording is a kind of un-doing of the live group playing, forging it into a new collage of sound. It reminds us of genome editing which results in diversity, and sometimes in mutation, of organisms.

The title of the album, “Ballast”, refers to a weight on a ship which improves it’s stability, but it is also a term for an electrical component that regulates electricity so as to not destroy the other components. It’s double meaning fits between the cover art and the collage process which is constantly partitioning and interrupting the elements of sound.

—Takuya Sakaguchi, from the liner notes

UPEND and NOW INSTANT IMAGE HALL present

John Wiese’s
PURPLE RAIN: TERROR BEYOND BELIEF

The first L.A. screening – and only second anywhere – of a film Wiese’s describes as a “new edit of PURPLE RAIN where Prince murders Apollonia and gets away with it.”

Artist Q&A to follow the screening.

at
NOW INSTANT IMAGE HALL

04.25.19, 8pm
Tickets are $10 onsite.
Early arrival recommended!

“PURPLE RAIN: TERROR BEYOND BELIEF shines a darker shade of purple on the ‘greatest music movie of them all.’ If ‘Darling Nikki’ was all it took for Tipper Gore to start the PMRC, one wonders what PR:TBB might have done for the MPAA. Unlike other works of appropriation which selectively reorganize ‘bites’ into a new decontexualized construct, PR:TBB pushes an existing, diegetic act of violence a few cinematic degrees further, and then lets the third act play through (albeit without Apollonia’s presence). This is PURPLE RAIN as you have seen it before (yet not).”
