Introducing: Supreme Nothing's 1/2 Hour of Power!

At long last I'm finally launching a project I've wanted to do for a long time. I'm very excited to introduce you to Supreme Nothing's 1/2 Hour Of Power, a bite-sized audio trip through musical oddities and adventures in sound for human beings everywhere!

Imagine if you will, tuning your radio dial across the AM band late one night and picking up random strange things with little rhyme or reason. Well, that's what Supreme Nothing's 1/2 Of Power is all about! Oddball bits of music from all over the world mixed in with sound textures and occasional dialogue to entertain all...

I'd love to be able transmit this broadcast to pocket-sized transistor radios around the world, but in this modern era, the internet will have to do. (The kids call these things a podcast from what I understand.)

Anyway, here's the first episode of my show. You can download it HERE!

Awesome, I'm downloading it now. I'll post a comment after I give it a listen.

Great stuff. Thanks for introducing me to Polysics. I'll be picking up this album. Almost a less intense Melt Banana.

And that, Guitarbrother my brother, is what it's all about! I really really love POLYSICS. I tell ya, anything you buy of theirs will be awesome, I promise!

Thanks for the kind words, my friend. I'll be rolling out a new episode shortly....

Got Polysics or Die Vista CD with a DVD included as well. Haven't stopped listening to it. Thanks for making me aware of this great band along with the other cool tunes.
Looking forward to the next installment.
