Album Review

Over the Edge, Vol. 6: The Willsaphone Stupid Show features material recorded on Negativland's weekly radio show, "Over the Edge," on KPFA in Berkeley, CA. This double-CD set was the sixth in the series of "Over the Edge" releases. The show began in 1981 and by 1993 it was the longest-running block of free-form radio in the history of radio. Released in 1993, the collection features recordings from two five-hour live radio mixes that were originally aired in 1991. The group used tape decks, microphones, turntables, cart machines, electronic music instruments, CB radio, and live sound processing to create the continually engaging soundscapes that Negativland has become notorious for. The disc begins with "found sounds" of various recordings. The group's collage-style of combining sounds on this effort includes what the band calls "family tapes," recordings from various families in the early days of commercially produced tape recorders. The result is a scattered and layered creation of humorous and engaging audio art. Unscreened telephone calls added a public forum to the radio shows, which were essentially live performance art. Negativland also experimented with new on-air characters this time around. The CD booklet includes passages taken verbatim from dream journals by David Wills in the early '70s. Participants in Over the Edge, Vol. 6: The Willsaphone Stupid Show included Wills, Don Joyce, Richard Lyons, Buzzy Linhart, and Chris Grigg. The collection includes 20 tracks, which are actually more than 20 pieces of radio excerpts, with most tracks including a number of titles.

Some will always say that practical jokers should expect retribution at some point. Others may note that within any joke there is some human truth. Still others will just want to enjoy the jokes as jokes and nothing more. Three differing statements, all valid truths when applied to one of America's most curious, clever, and inventive bands in the last 20 years of the 20th century and beyond, Negativland. Though named after a track by cult Krautrock band Neu!, who also inadvertently provided the moniker...
