On this compilation CD Ace Farren Ford and Ju Suk Reet Meate take you on an intense trip to the farthest corners of the musical landscape. The CD spans a period of almost 40 years (the oldest recording dates from 1976, the most recent from 2013) and unites all sorts of approaches to music into a wild, deconstructionist desert flower.
In 1977 Ace Farren Ford, one of the founding members of the Los Angeles Free Music Society, released a compilation album of various artists called “Blorp Esette” on 12″ vinyl on the LAFMS label. A double LP called “Blorp Esette Volume 2″ was released three years later. And two re-issues of these LPs, combined with previously unreleased material, appeared as 4-CD boxes in 1999 and 2011. The concept of an audio magazine which would feature contributions of various members of LAFMS – past and present – and would keep the Blorp Esette series active, was developed and realised by Ace Farren Ford as the “Blorp Esette Gazette”, a quarterly audio magazine. Volume 1 appeared in 2013 and volume 2 in May 2014.
The Blorp Esette Gazette Volume Two are 14 tracks compiled by Ace Farren Ford and Ju Suk Reet Meate and mastered by the latter for Ace & Duce / Transparency and the Los Angeles Free Music Society. The six-panel sleeve has otherworldly artwork by Rick Potts. Artistic Director of the production: Ace Farren Ford. Contributions by: The Reverend Toad-Eater, Smegma, Rick Potts, Skip Heller, Clown Car, Electric Bill Robinson, Mr. Les Franklin, Mannlicher Carcano, Don Lewis, AMP (Ace, Mars, Pierre), Raw dog benson, Kommissar Hjuler & Frau Mama Baer, Dead Channel, and John Duncan.
