Electronic Meditation
Thursday October 22nd, 2015 with Sean McFee
Stealing From Better Shows

This week is the Electronic Meditation tribute to other CKCU programs. Our funding drive starts in two days, so please dial and donate! (Not now, then!) (But you can donate on-line now!) (The frogurt is cursed!)
We begin with the fundamental incoherence of songs with words.
Walk in the Park
Emtidi - Saat - Galaxis
Flashbulb Eyes
Arcade Fire - Reflektor - Merge Canadian
War on the East Coast
The New Pornographers - Brill Bruisers - Last Gang Canadian
Big Star - Third / Sister Lovers - Ryko
Emtidi originally played on The Oort Cloud on September 14th. That's a great new program that plays a lot of material that would be of interest to listeners of this show.

Arcade Fire played by "Kid B" on September 21st. The New Pornographers track played on the Tuesday Special Blend on July 21st. Big Star was played on "What's The Frequency" on February 11th.

Now for some Cluster!
Base and Apex
Eno / Moebius / Roedelius - After the Heat - Water
Cluster - Zuckerzeit - Spalax
Cluster - '71 - Water
These tracks were originally played, respectively, on Heavy Friends (May 16th), Steve Kirkland's show (July 25th), and Friday Morning Cartunes (January 30th).

Next up, it wouldn't be this show if we didn't add some Berlin School. This track originally aired on Joe Reilly's show on February 2nd.
Ricochet Part 2
Tangerine Dream - Ricochet - Virgin
Please pre-pledge to our funding drive at

We start the second hour with a mini-vinyl countdown.
Lola Palooza
Exploding Meet - Mapping New Tangier - Birdman Canadian
Vangelis - Albedo 0.39 - RCA
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Allelujah, Don't Bend Ascend - Constellation Canadian
Exploding Meet was played on The Night Watch (December 14th), Vangelis on Doing It On The Cheap (September 30th). and GY!BE is often played by Matthew Crosier when he is filling in for someone; in this case, on Drunken Master Review (July 6th)

Next up, in tribute to my good friend and occasional co-host/fill-in, Marvelous Mark Keill, the official mascots of Infinite Ceiling; this track played on February 5th
India Minor
Butterflies & Zebras - Butterflies & Zebras - private Canadian
We close with Third Ear Band, who released this groundbreaking album 46 years ago, in 1969. Originally played on Sunday Night Mind Melt on July 19th, and far too long since I've played it myself.
Ghetto Raga
Third Ear Band - Alchemy - EMI Japan
Interactive CKCU
