Arthur Radio Voyage #15: Supermercado de Sueños

This week we arrived at Newtown Radio as sunset was descending over Bushwick, and a mysterious blue and purple mist had started to fill the neighborhood.

  1. The excerpt is from a series of German radio broadcasts betweeen 1929 and 1932 (Aufklärung für Kinder, or, Enlightenment for Kids) – focusing on the relationship between natural disasters and artists!

  2. i think the portion you might be thinking of is actually a robert fripp frippertronic diddy with vocals by david byrne, called “under heavy manners” referencing blakeian gods and jamaican politics – not to be confused with the prince far i album or the black dice song
