Dr. Yo’s Magic Lantern returns from summer break, shining brightly as ever. The lantern’s collimated beam illuminates antiques, curios, and Fortean phenomena alike. The sweetest treat, of course, is Sugar Kane. But we shan’t overlook the significance of Ron Nasty and Dirk McQuickly’s socioeconomic poetry, nor Dr. Frank’s semiotic analysis of linguistic anomalies in youth culture. We all […]

That’s styled: 1u57 4 1if3 * homeboys and grrls Behold the Magic Lantern’s revelations: culture jamming, weasel squelching, flyswatting godless anarchy. Round about zero time, the statues climb off their pedestal. The last thing a politician will ever do is act in your interest. Don’t take the advice of a strung-out rock star– success walks […]

All I can think about is the mad genius of Christian Vander and Magma. Specifically every chord and riff being played off the beat, “up in the air”. Television did it too, but much more conventionally switching between on-beat and off. Therefore, Television were a progressive rock band. Q.E.D. Let’s get physical, sex vampire, little […]

The Magic Lantern shines in all its prismatic glory this week. Love is all around, indeed. From the hardcore punk perspective, the New Romantic movement is the beginning of the end. Some see beauty in sad poetry; perhaps you do, too. Dr. Yo’s Magic Lantern is not for everyone. Discontinue use and consult your doctor […]

Repetition is a form of change, according to the Oblique Strategies. This show changes a lot, then. Had to phone it in due to external factors, almost didn’t do the show this week. What’s more, it was a comedy of errors. What you hear in this podcast is actually a Frankenstein’s monster edit in which […]

Embrace what some call the darkness. Dark harmony, man in the dark sedan, dark life. But this is actually the penumbra, the twilight zone. Total darkness isn’t that interesting unless you’re in a tactile dome. Dr. Yo’s Magic Lantern is not for everyone. Discontinue use and consult your doctor or witch doctor if you experience fatigue, nausea, or ennui.

The takeaway from this week’s Magic Lantern program: everything is extraordinary. And it’s an eclectic form of extraordinary, embracing second-wave skiffle, Dixieland, Krautrock, sci-fi, and, of course, satirical covers of pop standards. If there were a theme to this program, it would be sound poetry. Hugo Ball and Kurt Schwitters prefigured the Mysterious N. Senada’s […]

Season 2 of Dr. Yo’s Magic Lantern begins with a journey into unknown musical territory. Magma is a French band that somehow defined its own genre: at the intersection of progressive rock, jazz, choral, opera, and plain old madness lies a music called Zuehl. Don’t ask me to explain it, nor the invented language of Kobaia, […]
