Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesFriday MP3 Shuffle: Happy Birthday Brian Chippendale Edition

Fans of experimental noise Rock rejoice! Today is Brian Chippendale’s birthday. He plays drums and sings in the band Lightning Bolt and several other of his own projects including Black Pus and Mindflayer. “Have I ever heard Brian Chippendale play?” you might ask yourself. Rest assured, you would know if you’ve heard him. Chippendale’s style is a storm of speed and rhythm that maximizes volume and drum hits per measure in an ecstatic frenzy that makes Keith Moon’s technique sound like meditation. “Fierce” and “bold” don’t begin to describe the sounds he makes, but he’s not a one-trick pony. Among his numerous collaborations (including playing drums for the 2007 Bjork album Volta) he is also a visual artist who created all of the Lightning Bolt’s album art as well as his own comics and graphic novels.

It’s a good day to make it loud, so take your MP3 player, press the "shuffle" button, and share the first 10 songs that play:

1. Prurient – Traditional Snowfall (Frozen Niagara Falls): Musically, Prurient and Lightning Bolt would have much to discuss

2. Music, Love & Funk - Stone Lover (Purple Snow: Forecasting the Minneapolis Sound)

3. Throwing Muses – folding fire 2 (purgatory / paradise): [COMMENT]

4. The Everly Brothers – Crying in the Rain (All-Time Original Hits))

5. Phosphorescent, Jenny Lewis & Friends – Sugaree (Day of the Dead)

6. Towkio – I Know You (.Wav Theory)

7. Starlicker – Skull Cave (Double Demon)

8. AU – the Veil (Both Lights)

9. The Go-Go’s – This Town (Beauty and the Beat)

10. Bauhaus – She’s in Parties (Crackle)
