Pressure Drop 1 & 2 (the world's first reggae fanzine)
Published in 1975 and 1976
Edited by Nick Kimberley and Penny Reel with assistance from Chris Lane. I used to have these a l o n g time ago, the only two issues that were published, although Chris Lane says here
We were going to do a third one because we all agreed at the time that 1972 had been such a classic year for reggae. We were going to do a 1972 edition of Pressure Drop and write it as though it was actually 1972: “Look at this great record from Glen Brown, Merry Up. It’s like nothing you’ve ever heard before”. Of course we never got round to it but Nick knew someone at Pluto Press and we actually signed a contract and got paid a very small advance to write this book about reggae. It was going to be the history of reggae and I remember at the time that I even did a thing about dub and how dubs are mixed, the track layouts, why the Studio One dubs on the albums sound the way they do because they come from 2-track tape, how the Tubby’s dubs sound the way they do because they’re using 4-track tape, and the Channel One’s…
My BIG thanks to Nigel for passing them along

Radio Discordia 017: T.A.Z. - Hakim Bey and Bill Laswell

[Temporary Autonomous Zone]
Anti-Copyright 1992
Explorations of the political, the personal, the social, and the metaphysical from writer and spoken word artist Hakim Bey. A meld with musical terrorist Bill Laswell.
Bey advocates nearly everything, including creating free states for like-minded cabals and collectives. He recommends marginalized groups form secret societies and concludes with a lengthy piece on boycotting cop culture. Musique concrete cloaks his words in an eerily seductive melange of avant-garde noise and ambient music. But the sounds are almost immaterial. Bey's words are the primary focus of this disc.
A swirling, surreal vertigo of information and methods for "escape", woven with the kind of airy tones and hallucinatory rhythms that Laswell has been playing with lately, Bey's voice calms and prepares the listener for an age where missing information and the icons of late capitalist high-tech correspond with an increasing alienation of this "X-generation"'s most primitive needs. Most of all, Bey doesn't come across as a cheesy, overzealous, visionary bard, but presents us with ideas point-blank, allowing us to be choosy in aiming our own forms of poetic terrorism against those forces that attempt to suppress and homogenize humility and free thought.

02 Poetic Terrorism
03 Amour Fou
