The League of Assholes: IN OGRE ATE

The League of Assholes: IN OGRE ATE (January 2017)

  The League of Assholes: IN OGRE ATE (January 2017) The League of Assholes: IN OGRE ATE (January 2017)°•°   This album is a response to a changing of high guards, from an imperfect, empathic, intelligent, inspiring man who does not fall asleep at his watch, to a boisterous glutton who abandons his post in order to feed on extra rations, a petty clown who inspires distrust, an ogre who should have stayed in his castle. The goal of IN OGRE ATE was to act like an exorcism, a way to creatively capture the purging of collective disgust, a communal vomiting session, some 29 minutes of “not my president” in a sound collage, which conveys the anxiety coursing through our veins in January 2017.  The image of Ogre T eating his fellow citizens is at the forefront of this work, ultimately IN OGRE ATE is an incantation, a labor of love in a time of fuck.
°•°   Produced and assembled by Marcelo Radulovich on the weeks of the 2017 USA presidential inauguration, IN OGRE ATE is made up of numerous contributions from individuals across the USA and Europe, from harsh layers of distorted guitar, to jagged piano and plastic bag, to strange vocalizations, sound design, theremin, drums, digitally altered old cassette recordings of Russian church bells and a variety of sounds, a sander sanding a distorted bass, screams into phones, a 97 year old woman saying “no, NO!” while watching the inauguration on TV... all in virtual unity, chipping in in their unique way to help push the purge.
°•°   Long inactive as a band the roots of The League of Assholes stretch back to the late 1990’s when a rotating breed of adventurous guitarists would gather to improvise dissonance. Disclaimer: The League of Assholes does not exist, there is no league and the participants in this work are not assholes.
