STEVIEPINK JAVASCRIPT I was housebreaking some classical Boxcar Willie, and it occured to me: my wrench had become soggy. Oversaturation of water from the Caribbean. I contacted my barber, and he told me, "It's just the system." And THAT'S when I turned pink. "Now, whaddya call this music, Steve?" Ariel Green "Yeah?" That's right. "Well, I call it StevePink. Jump in whenever you want. Fill in the blank space, if you would." I'll do what I can. Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, "R. Stevie, it's nice to meetcha" My pleasure "It's such a thrill." You do great shit. "Aw thanks, man, you too." And I like the way that you do that... "Dig the time you shift the lip there (?)" Uh huh. "Right." Uh huh. "Right. Exactly." Borax. It's like Borax, exactly! "My name is Pink, and no one knows me I'm really big in South Dakota" I knew your grandmother back... "You tell all your friends about me, and I'll tell all my friends about you." Yeah, but, your friends left me. "What?" For YOU! "Man, that's low." IT'S TRUE!! "Now does this guarantee that I get your tapes for free now?" I was thinking about running for Senate. "Now I know that's not your thing, you can blow yourself a chance now" I was thinking about you as my running mate, Pink. "Hey, I was supposed to say that." You're a little slow. "Uhhhh." See?? "Uhh, yeh." Ha ha ha. "Fuck this." "R. Stevie, you're very cool." No question. "Your music rules." Thank you. You too. "Aw, you're just fibbing." No, I'm serious! "For real?" Yeah! "Hell, yes." No question! You're better than I am! "...too much fantasy in there (?)" No, this is reality we're speaking about. "I must admit RPinks a pimp (???)" Orchestra, come in "Get a lead guitar!" Come on in, YES. "I think this shit's giving me bad vibes, man." Too high tech? "The stars about to shake, the storm's about to break now. Here's the climax, Steve, don't let me down, don't release a frown The stars about to shake, the form's about to break now. I only got a couple extras." "The stars about to shake, the phone's about to break now. Stevie! Stevie!" Pink is whack, Pink is whack, Pink is whack, Pink is whack, everybody now Ariel Pink! Ariel Ariel! "Stevie! Pink..." "Getcha!" "SteviePink SteviePink...."

Forty minutes into Ku Klux Glam, Ariel Pink and R. Stevie Moore’s sprawling 61-track double LP, is “Fadermasturbater.” Consisting of little more than audio taken from a Fader TV interview segment, the four-minute track manages to capture the spirit of the entire album: Speaking over the din of a city street the two collaborators tell a disjointed account of how they met, all the while cracking silly jokes, making random noises, and basically showing off what a great, weird friendship they have. Like the record as a whole, it’s all kinda charming if you’re a fan, but if you’re not sympathetic to the duo’s quirks and conceits there’s no way it can hold your attention for a full two-and-a-half hours.

The relationship between Pink and Moore, that strange little world they occupy together, is the center around which the entire albums orbits. The two have something of a mentor-mentee arrangement: Moore, who’s decades-long stream of outsider pop albums earned him the title Godfather of Home Recording, is one of Pink’s major influences—a fact the younger musician readily acknowledges. Ku Klux Glam essentially shows what sort of creative chemical reaction occurs when you mix a cult favorite with one of his most successful followers—and it shows everything: The majority of the record is given over to what feel like b-sides, outtakes, and goofy little home studio experiments. It’s the type of things that usually end up on the cutting room floor. By keeping these oddities, the record becomes about the process of two hyper-creative individuals working together, no so much the product.

Unfortunately, this means the fully formed weirdo-pop gems both musicians are capable of crafting are few and far between. However, when they do appear, they’re fantastic. “Dutch Me” finds the two in a karaoke lounge duet set to cheap drum machines and cheesy synth strings, while the guitar jangle and vocal harmonies of “Come My Way” recall pre-Help! Beatles singles. Even more exciting is when the album strays from pop further into the tape-warped territory of Pink and Moore’s solo releases. On “Steviepink Javascript” the duo sing/speak compliments to each other through heavy layers of reverb and fuzzy bass. It’s an utterly bizarre setup for a song, but it works by balancing the dreamy atmosphere with just enough melody and focus. The problem for a lot of listeners will be digging through the rough to find the diamonds. For every sublime lo-fi sound collage like “Bedroom Rock and Roll” there are multiple tracks of spoken non sequiturs or aimless synth meanderings.

Many will hear these efforts as mere sonic ellipses between fleshed-out songs, or worse, intentional weirdness. However, it’s more helpful to view them as glimpses into the personalities and production techniques behind the one of the most unique and influential aesthetics in indie music. Hearing song fragments and sonic motifs appear multiple times in endless variation showcases the duo’s mastery of manipulating recordings. After all, it was the attention to sound texture and quality that made Pink’s early albums the foundation of the chillwave phenomena. The first time you hear the twangy guitar line from “Desperation Passion” it may be forgettable, but by the fifth time it crops up you may notice how subtle changes in its speed or grain effect how you receive it. In this sense, these parts aren’t just throw-away tracks—though unless you have a keen interest in studio minutiae, the charm might be lost.

R Stevie Moore is an unclassifiable artist from every point of view, his works are strange, risky and career is so prolific that it would be an ordeal to list each material recording artist, luckily, he puts us with a motto that suits her perfectly: "prolific but never mediocre." When a person joins Ariel Pink, a subject of similar characteristics (Moore is a very important influence on the young LA), you can only create something supernatural, a kind of magic abstract, experimental and provocative they decided headline "Ku Klux Glam". I can assure that the entire album in these two musicians have never had the idea of playing a single note that was not purely and exclusively for them, leaving critics and purists with migraine and stress, this is how the material ends up falling on his own trap (without this being all bad) possesses the experimental scheme of Moore and this, in one way or another, the listener located in the distribution disc bizarre. Without that it deprives him of his experimentation, "Ku Klux Glam" offers high level compositions, some in which can be seen mainly Pen Pink ("Another No Answer") or Moore ("Haunted Graffridgerator Kkg Kgb" ), but the healthy mixture of these two powers gives much nicer results ("Nu Wav"). As he usually does the old Stevie, we improvisations devenidas in hilarious monologues or babbling nonsense just flowed with the beginning of the recording, with bizarre games between songs and listen to musicians entering their minds ("R Stevie's Brain" and "Ariel's Brain"). It would be a meanness analyze whether "Ku Klux Glam" is good or bad, it's just experimentation pleasant, entertaining and complex relationship between two powers of unclassifiable music, which you should give it a try. Or many, failing.

Ku Klux Glam (2012)

Early in Rosenberg's career, R. Stevie Moore's name popped up often in media coverage. A prolific, macabre underground icon with hundreds of outsider releases to his credit, Moore was the Bob Dylan to Rosenberg's Beck. On Ku Klux Glam the duo make their mutual admiration society official. (Unless you're a diehard fan of either or both, do yourself a huge favor and stay far away from the 63-track edition, which is a nightmare of eye-rolling in-jokes and fucking off that dilutes the actual rock these two get up to. It's a gas on first listen, then interminable.) "No Zipper" is primo, untucked bar-band sludge; "Lo-Fi No Cry" transitions to skeletal beat programming to drug-trip Northern Lights gazing in a way, achieving a mad brilliance that Rosenberg's solo journeys into wordless ponderous rarely achieve; "Sacred Snow" personifies tuneful insanity; "Stevepink Javascript" laughingly sends up the idea that weirdos of different generations would find working together a complete nightmare. A head-trip respite from Rosenberg's more palatable records, Ku Klux Glam is nonetheless a bleary, unkempt good time in all the best possible ways.
