Eden's Hour celebrates David Lynch's birthday 5PM 1/20/08

Brilliance cd by Steven Lapcevic and Erin Skipper
"I guess I got whacked hard in the mystery department when I was little. I found the world completely and totally fascinating then - it was like a dream." ~David Lynch

The fascinating and dream like way in which David Lynch sees the world has been infused into his unique body of creative work during his 62 prolific years. With David Lynch's birthday coming up this Sunday I decided this week's show would be the perfect time to play some songs from a compilation cd that I put together a couple years ago as a birthday present for David. Tune in Saturday night at 9pm!

This particular project started when Ryan Walsh of Boston bands the Stairs, Hallelujah the Hills and the Motel Candlewasters sent me the Candlewaster's song Whacked Pretty Hard in the Mystery Department which was directly inspired by the quote at the top of this blog. The following week Josh Lambert of The Octopus Project mentioned to me that they had named their latest song Bees Bein Strugglin' after David's short film Out Yonder on DavidLynch.com. Once I asked for a few more songs from people... the ball really got rolling and after a few short days an entire cd was born.To my pleasant surprise Talkshow Boy has whipped up some incredibly zany Twin Peaks inspired IDM. And who would have thought that mariachi, surf music and David Lynch could blend together so beatifully? Well, Gringo Motel, that's who.

BRILLIANCE: A collection of songs and art inspired by the creative genius of David Lynch is loaded with amazingly talented musicians and beautiful still art, including the cover design (pictured above) by Steven Lapcevic. I am particularly excited to to share some of these songs on KRUU, because it's a fun and wildly eclectic mix. Since only three copies were
made, very few people have heard it in its entirety. Even the 48 contributing artists have not heard it ...until now. However, due to the fact that there were so many songs on this album I can't
play them all in one show, so stay tuned for the sequel.

Thanks for playing the show

Thanks for playing the show again Jimmy! Geesh... I can't believe I said David's birthday date wrong on air. It's the 20th, 20th, 20th. Aw well. I always get it confused because Richard's birthday is the 20th of February, but it's listed wrong on a lot of websites and for some reason it's the wrong date that has stuck in my mind for both him and David now. 20th, 20th, 20th. Okay, that should reverse any mal-memory problems I have been having.
