Vitriol - Randonée 0.06 (2001)

"Vitriol is the collaborative project of Paulo Raposo and Carlos Santos, and is the debut release on SIRR.ecords. Randonée 0.06 documents their contributions to the internet event "Le Placard: Headphone Room", organised by the BURO association in Paris. The event was born out of a desire to experiment with "finding new ways to diffuse and listen to electronic music by bringing out a relationship between time/work/diffusion".

With a run time of just 20 minutes, Vitriol's work here is a surprising electronic soundscape with many shifts and nuances. Rich digital tones, sparse sounds, clicks and crackles mix with various found sounds, creating an atmosphere of digital detachment and distance. The arrangements are never predictable but are full of details and subtle movements, which makes the listening experience more rewarding each time I've put this disc in my player. Sounds great; let's keep our eyes and ears peeled". Richard di Santo,

Dear Bravo,

We’re Late For Class here.

We hope you might like to post our 30th release on your blog. It’s dumb and fun and sure to tick somebody off... and it’s called The Jim Morrison Seance Tapes.

Below is a link for the codes to post any & all of The Jim Morrison Seance Tapes on your blog for free (links, cover, FULL Mp3 player, etc). Your readers might enjoy it and we’d get some free publicity for our free music and free blog. Our folks would love you for it... and we also have pictures of sad-eyed puppies, in case we’re forced to send those, too. Drop us a line so we can add you to our “Bloggers Kind Enough To Promote Us Even Though There's Zilch In It For Them” list. We get almost all our traffic from other bloggers so a link would make all of our collective pants happy.

Thanks, as always,

PRIVATE Link for you to get Codes and Links (Don’t post this link please)

‘We’re Late For Class’ Jams With Jim Morrison

Via a medium, stoner college jam band We’re Late For Class performed a 14 minute improvisational space jam along with the disembodied voice of Jim Morrison, the late singer of The Doors.

“Why not!?,” said a We’re Late For Class spokesman. “It's cheaper than a living singer, what with classified ads, lodging and alcohol... and besides, you know how lead singers are to deal with.”

It’s entitled The Jim Morrison Seance Tapes and is their 30th. It’s available for free at the band’s blog,

“So you don't think this is just something we slapped together with old recordings and ProTools... (you can hear) the engineer ask Jim for the ‘post-death stuff... the stuff without copyrights,’” the spokesman persisted. “In the end,” he said, ”it went smoother than our Screamin' Jay Hawkins seance.”

The free download also includes a 14 minute instrumental version for those that don’t buy the premise.

I live in Portugal but only read about them first time from a Dave McKean book.

Caro Ochyming

É bom saber que o Juju não é visitado apenas por alemães e americanos.

Não fazia ideia de que os Vitriol tinham uma ligação ao Dave McKean, muito menos ao ponto de este lhes fazer referência num livro.
Tenho uma cassete original antiga dos Vitriol que gostava de partilhar aqui, mas tenho que arranjar um deck primeiro.

Vai aparecendo e abraços

Interesting stuff.
You have some very nice music here.
Thank you Juju

Encontro aqui música muito interessante, parabéns!
A ligação ao Dave Mackena deve-se provavelmente pelo facto de termos tocado em 1998 na bedeteca de lisboa, onde estava a decorrer uma exposição do D Mackena, ele assistiu ao concerto e gostou muito, na altura dedicamos o concerto a ele (sou grande fã)...
Já agora qual é a cassete?

Um abraço e bom trabalho,
