There are few artists in today’s music scenes who we can define as truly avant-garde. The generic, often misleading term is latched on to artists which are too difficult to describe and so “out there” that the term has become a lazy go-to which categorizes something that is so unique and groundbreaking that there isn’t a term for it yet. One such artist is Bryant Canelo, aka LAMPGOD, or more recently, LORETTA ABERDEEN — their latest pseudonym which has manifested itself in the form of analog-based, harsh (yet subtle) electronic rhythms, sometimes over freestyle spoken word prose — (often ironic ...

In the olden days while we were fighting the Language poets, I decided I would be the ideologue and pit-bull against Ron Silli- man.
