POREST: Prude Juice for the Heritage Swinger (CD)


Seeland 528/EMR CPA-022 CD

This CD (co-released with Electro Motive Records) is the debut album from the Bay Area-based composer and audio documentarian known as Porest (a.k.a. Mark Gergis, a founding member of improv-ethno-pranktitioners Mono Pause, which also includes Peter from Negativland).

Prude Juice for the Heritage Swinger is a collection of carefully-arranged sound weavings variously employing cut-ups, music and field recordings, and is stacked with snappy plunderphonics, exploitative pop tunes, paranormal suites, loops, drones and imaginary radio dramas. Somewhere between the manic and the meditative, Prude Juice for the Heritage Swinger blurs the sonic truths and lies about sheep, Gordon Lightfoot, paranormal misogyny, Gamelan-soaked war veterans, our Nazi heritage, law, order and diseases known well to those who have ever reluctantly caressed the cancerous underbelly of Americana. Porest spits the juices all over the concrete, then pieces the tiny pillage back together like an insolent jigsaw. Alternately hilarious and meditative, and totally "original".
