This week on Best in Show- This Song Is a Mess but So Am I


This week on Best in Show- This Song Is a Mess But So Am I (x2!)

This week on Humorless Productions presents Best in Show I’ll be playing two recordings if This Song Is a Mess But So Am I, both recorded at The Smell in Los Angeles and only a few months apart in early 2007.

This Song Is a Mess was Freddy Ruppert’s first musical project, and quickly gained legendary status after having released only one full length album and a smattering of tracks on a couple EPs and split releases. His renown was cemented not so much by his studio output, but more so by his incredibly energetic and captivating live performances, two of which you’ll hear this coming Sunday on my Mixlr channel including his final formal performance as This Song Is a Mess.

Freddy continues to make music using the name Former Ghosts which has more of a melodic, melancholy synth-pop style as opposed to the more aggressive experimental industrial sounds of This Song Is a Mess.

First up on Sunday will be the recording from the 20th of January, 2007 and the second will be from the 26th of May from that same year, which was his final performance before starting Former Ghosts. I’m playing both because they each clock in at about 25 minutes, so it’ll be a well spent hour.

This Sunday at 4pm PST on

internet broadcast of my live recording of Bestial Mouths this weekend


Ok, I’m very excited about this.

I recorded Bestial Mouths last weekend in Los Angeles, and I’m super stoked that they’ve given me permission to broadcast/shoutcast it on my channel this coming Sunday. is my Mixlr page, and the time will be Sunday, 10 March at 4pm west coast time, which is 7pm east coast time, and I think midnight in London and 1am (Monday morning officially) in Berlin. As far as I know, it’ll be a one-time-only broadcast and won’t be available (download, stream or otherwise) once it’s aired.

This is my first time using Mixlr, but I’ve done some tests and everything has worked just fine. Basically, it’s a site where you can make a playlist (a la iTunes) of Soundcloud tracks and broadcast them to whomever wants to listen, and every broadcast has it’s own IM/chat capabilities. So I’ll just throw the recording in the playlist and let ‘er rip.

You don’t need to register an account with Mixlr to listen to the show, but you do if you want to join the chat room. Registration is free.

The audio is high quality, proper live album, not some crappy bootleg. If you’re not familiar with any of my other live recordings (industrial, breakcore, idm, more…), jump over to and check some out.

Bestial Mouths will be playing SXSW the following weekend, so hopefully this broadcast will add to the giant hype snowball that’s been generating around them, and help push them through the Austin show and the release of their album and beyond.

I also grabbed a couple songs on video from this show, and have synced up my high quality audio to them. I may be able to convince the band to release them prior to the broadcast as a teaser, but we shall see.

Have I covered everything? I think so.

Please tune in, and spread the word. Thanks.
