William Hooker – “Radiation”

Posted in Uncategorized by Mogo on July 11, 2007

I first came across this album via a review in a magazine that had almost nothing to do with jazz as a genre. in the mid-90s there existed for a short while a publication known as Thorazine. it was basically a confluence of drug-culture and music – I picked it up for an interview with Eyehategod, a band I was really into at the time – and wound up reading all about their drug habits and their take on “nawlins” culture. somewhere in there was a full-page review/write-up on this album. at the time I was beginning to discover the Knitting Factory Works label and some of the artists associated with it. I was also beginning to discover noise gurus Borebetomagus, of whom I had just obtained a 10″ picture disc from RRRecords mailorder. all of those associations (Donald Miller plays guitar here, btw) were enough to cause me to seek it out and I soon ordered a copy from… somewhere (memory fails me on some details at my frail age). it came out on Homestead, so most likely from them. it loomed pretty large in my collection back then and still does. and now I share it with you, my loyal readers 😉
