Dere Moans - "Brain Mountain Disciples"
Tony Lien is everywhere these days. He's the label boss over at Bad Cake Records, he's begun a new blog called Infinite Headphones, and he produces music under the moniker of Dere Moans. This new Dere Moans release on Orb Tapes is a real ripper, and you should go get this in your headspace.
Brain Mountain Disciples is a plunderphonic mind trip, where a vintage television becomes possessed by an ancient spirit that can only express itself through sound, picture, and frequencies that it has transmitted before. The television grows creepy metal legs like a spider and begins wandering around, causing general violence and havoc just like in a horror film.
No one can stop the creepy television from rampaging, until the town psychic, Madame Crepe manages to fire off a telepathic message before the television can melt her. Her last dying mind transmission reaches the Brain Mountain Disciples, who leave their clandestine mountain retreat and eerily float to the small town where all the mess is taking place.
The Brain Mountain Disciples descend upon the town, and begin an epic battle with the demonic television, who snarls at them with cartoon sound effects and bits of t.v. commercials. Some of the disciples lose their lives in the most noble ways imaginable. At the end, one brave Brain Mountain hero is able to throttle the television with a onslaught of colorful telepathy. The townspeople are saved, and the hero departs into the rising sun, returning to his mountain retreat.
