Fergus & Geronimo are two fellas from Denton who moved to Brooklyn, whatever. You don’t need to know the migratory habits of the people behind the instruments to feel down right righteous when you plug in your stereo and jam their new long player, Funky was the State of Affairs. A record which may at first baffle, but soon reward those who believe in the transcendental power of paranoia. Paranoia isn’t the only thing going on here; This record is awash with themes both silly (intergalactic love affairs) and serious (cloned drones). As for its sound, just think of the most far out Devo record that could ever possibly be imagined and then add some sax.

Just when the Porch thinks that Johnny Disaster has moved onto other adventures…he quickly pulls your pants down and runs away giggling. Check out his wonderful pairing of my favorite Animal Collective track, “Banshee Beat,” with the Beach Boys “I’m Waiting for the Day.”

As reported before Johnny Disaster will be departing from his regular schedule on the Porch to join the Peace Corps. Johnny (aka Matt Orr) is a longtime friend, groomsman, and fellow lover of music. Orr has been a pillar of influence in my musical interests and we’ve often wandered down similar listening paths. This mix is comprised of tracks that make me think of him and the numerous jams he’s brought before my nose.
So here’s one last bike ride with Johnny Disaster before he embarks on his latest adventure!
