Rule Number Two Is The New Rule Number One – The Wikileaks Big Cable Dump Mix

December 6, 2010 – UFOverdriver has been busy this last week working on this densely layered sound collage of mixed-media from the first week of the Wikileaks Cable Dump – a week that will be remembered as a historical battle in the history of the InfoWars…

This new remix includes music from U2, Talking Heads and Radiohead, lectures from Alan Watts and sound clips from an audiobook version of 1984, as well as numerous other clips, cuts, samples and various bits of audio debris from this first week of skirmishes in the new InfoWars…

First mixed on November 30, 2010 and released as a short pieces called Rule Number Two Will Be Told To You In Reverse, this remix was completed on December 6, 2010 and takes a broader look at this unfolding (or continuously leaking) situation.

While the first mix was only 3:48, this new re-mix is 14:20 and contains 6 individual tracks…

Music Pieces Used:

U2 – One Step Closer (from How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb)

Talking Heads – Life During Wartime (from Fear Of Music)

Radiohead – Videotape (from In Rainbows)

Radiohead – House of Cards (from In Rainbows)

Some of the material used in this sound collage (including the title) comes from an audio-cassette invitation to a party created by my friends Brian Maul, Kirk Jones (the voice saying “Rule number two will be told to you in reverse”) and Philip May back in the early 1990′s.

You can hear the complete invitation here (it’s about 30 minutes long and quite amazing…)

The drum loops came from the Acid Loops Universal Groove Elements, but I altered them somewhat… in the background are some strange loops from something I recorded in June of 1990, and there’s also some organ playing in there that I recorded last week for this collage.

“Hey Freethinker” – I took this sound clip from my friend’s audio-invitation, but it really comes from a group called Voice Farm

Tracks 7 through 9
Dystopia (Is The New Utopian Dream)

December 18, 2010 – It’s been a very busy month for UFOverdriver – lots of recordings and new mixes.

Many of the new sound collages have become, for me, a record of this moment in time when our country is making a hard shift towards dystopia.

Nope is the new Hope, Secrecy is the new Transparency, Censorship is the new Freedom of the Press, Propaganda is today’s FauxNews…

…Music to help you party like it’s 1984 – or use it as your getaway soundtrack when you’re on the run from the Suede Denim Secret Police.
