John Fahey Mix Tapes
Unbelievable! Thanks to Total Vibration and Dying For Bad Music for alerting me to this.
The uploader says: “In the 1990’s my future wife was a record store clerk in Portland, Oregon. American guitar legend John Fahey was living in a nearby town and would visit the shop. Here are two mix cassettes that he made for her during that time.”
Strange sounds abound, from international garage rock to avant-classical drone to pummeling industrial sound collages. There’s even a little bit of acoustic guitar, too. Not much, though. But it’s a fascinating window into where Fahey’s head was at during this period. The latter days of the guy’s career remain sort of mysterious to me, but these tapes seem to fill in a piece of the puzzle.
