On the occasion of the 2010 Men’s World Cup Steeplechase in Wimbledon, South Africa, Junior Aspirin Radio look under the bonnet of audience expectations surrounding notions of receiving Chinese rugs, the possibility of having actually read Pierre Bourdieu, and interrogating performative gesturalities in relation to the idea of being a total fucking A-1 loser.

‘It doesn’t seem to me that anyone has discovered much that’s new since the Illiad or the Odyssey’ Raymond Queneau ‘The audience, which consisted largely of bikers, was unusually hostile, and Iggy, as usual, fed on that hostility, soaked it up and gave it back and absorbed it all over again in an eerie, frightening symbiosis. “All right,” he finally said, stopping a song in the middle, “you assholes wanta hear ‘Louie Louie’ we’ll give you ‘Louie, Louie.’” So the Stooges played a forty-five-minute version of ‘Louie Louie’” Lester Bangs Devised and presented by Dan Fox, words by Raymond Queneau Tracklisting:   Louie Louie – Richard Berry ...
As Junior Aspirin Records admires it’s new full-sleeve tattoos and raises the rent on its slum districts for the 37th consecutive month, we explain over a cup of cold-press espresso that you can’t afford to even look at, how complex cultural and economic forces work to disprove the old adage that ‘man cannot live by gourmet cheese alone.’ Devised and presented by Dan Fox In the City – Joe Walsh Primitive London 1 – Basil Kirchin Ghost Town (Extended Version) – The Specials Lonesome Town – The Cramps Beasley Street – John Cooper Clarke A Colloquial Dream (Scenes in the City) – Charles Mingus Primitive London 2 – ...
A French-Pop-Special-Guest-Podcast by our friends at Stop Making Sense – Yann Chateigné, Tiphanie Blanc & Vincent Normand Introduction penned by Mr. Dan Fox & performed by Mr. Nathaniel Mellors It was late. Wind howled through the dark outside the windows of the Novotel Krakow Centrum. The four men had been locked for nine days in the hotel’s Pope John Paul II Honeymoon Suite, surviving on a diet of lager and garage-bought sandwiches, delivered to them every hour by a silent seven-foot-tall thug known only as Tadeusz. The absurdist theatre sessions the men had been subjected to by their captors had become steadily ...
Devised and written by David Reinfurt, compiled and presented by Dan Fox, and produced in the context of ‘ALWAYS LIFT INKING ROLLERS WHEN PRESS IS NOT IN OPERATION. IF ROLLERS ARE LEFT TURNING ON THE DRUM THE INK WILL DRY FASTER AND THE ROLLERS WILL BE SUBJECT TO NEEDLESS WEAR’ organized by Will Holder at The Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, Canada.  “Things in their alleged places. Things where they think they should be, where they prefer to be. All of the things, just where they are. Things with things of their own. Things obeying no rules, following no orders, filling no ...

(Originally performed live as part of the exhibition ‘Last Year at Marienbad Redux’, curated by James Voorhies/Bureau for Open Culture at EFA Project Space, New York City, 2013.) Musician James Brown would fine any member of his band if they could not provide him with a new and entirely comprehensive interpretation of ‘Last Year at Marienbad’ before going on stage. Thus, it is a little known fact that most of the major scholarship surrounding the film was pioneered by Bootsy Collins. (140 springs, 8-10 degrees Celsius, carbonated, used in the treatment of renal, urological, respiratory, rhinitic, asthmatic, digestive, endocrinal and metabolic problems ...
As the Junior Aspirin Records label HQ moves its operations to a remote and heavily-fortified anarcho-syndicalist commune in the Pacific Northwest in anticipation of the total collapse of civic society after the 8 November election, label co-founder, writer and editor Dan Fox has made a rare trip into the city, finding time in his busy urban guerilla warfare training schedule to pop into SoHo, do a little shopping, and rig the US presidential election for this post-pre-post-truth liberal media elite conspiracy-thon. From Dead Kennedys to The Shangri-Las, from ABBA to Jay-Z, a caucus of paranoid political pundits, so desperate to ...
0.00 (mystery extract) Who knows where this is from? It may even be elsewhere on this mix. Who can say? Bootlegs throw up funny things like this. They are also of, ahem, variable audio quality. 2.13 The Gymnasium, NYC, April 7 or 8, 1967 The song’s about a year old now, having been trotted out in the summer of ’66 according to a setlist, but they say this is the earliest recording. The Gymnasium, incidentally, was a real gymnasium that Andy thought was cool. The bootleg of this whole(?) show is really great. The Velvets are starting to form their Andy-less identity as ...
