We bid farewell to artist, Brian Routh, former Harry Kipper of The Kipper Kids and audio artist, we listen to some brand new Mono Pause, Ikue Mori w/Christian Rønn, The Necks, Metabolismus and more!

I started off with a live in-the-studio mix that I completely forgot to back-announce. I then played a tribute to the late, great Brian Routh, who passed away earlier in the week after a long illness. He was a true original. Brian was one half of the legendary performance art duo The Kipper Kids (along with Martin Von Hasselberg) and since those two parted ways, Brian continued to make audio art, releasing a few CDs on CD Baby and regularly sharing his creations on SoundCloud and via Facebook. I will miss his humor, political audio collage work and musings on social media. He is survived by his wife, artist and University professor Patricia and their darling Chihuahua Harley.

I played lots of amazing new releases, including the split LP Don’t Low Up to the Amped Buenaes by Mono Pause (members of Neung Phak, Negativland, Porest, et al) and Metabolismus (from Germany); soon-to-be-released material by Ikue Mori and Christian Rønn; brand new stuff by The Necks and some skronk n’ skroll from my radio crate.

Here it is! I hope you enjoy it!
