IAO Core: Live from the Orange Peel, Set 1
"By giving our ancestors certain ideas and techniques, the Metaverse insures its own manifestation(s). As a performer the last thing I am concerned with is what I’m going to do about it. I’m not going to do anything. I have been doing it all along and so have you. When Iao Core plays a gig like "The Orange Peel", we are doing what we have been doing but now we bring others too, awestruck in nerve-cathedrals of confounding microcircuitous elegance, fabulously vivid and animated beyond belief.. Shows like that remind one that once an event has happened in this sphere, it’s frozen into the Order of Mainstream Reality and cannot “unhappen”. It weaves it’s way into our lives so it’s Information can be exchanged on levels other than the physical, and isn’t limited by Time’s arrow. It was like the central shaft of a sunflower. You can have the whole enchilada. It awaits you in beckoning repose." ... JRA

Live from Mosswood "The Rite of Venus" Part 7 of the Rites of E...

Ladies and gentlemen,as we rise out of the pit of unpleasant reflexes,let me remind you that IAO Core is ill-prepared to respond to any whiny little demands,so if you would kindly refrain from dying in your seats we shall all have a happier trip. Off to your left you will find the widely disputed "Arcade of the Horror of Fukishima". And on the - oh, sir, you'll have to stop that or I'll smite you into oblivion. What? No, the "B.P--o-Rama" tour was the eight fifteen, this is "Culture is to The World as the mind is to the Body". No, I don't think you can have that removed without severe trauma. Why don't you just put your hypno-goggles back on and settle down.The Holy IaooaI understand that within the Lightcraft are the Father and the Son, joy riding essentially, because they have the key. Who gave them the key? I did. IAO Core, legendary Purveyors of Noise Rock Delicacies, perform “The Rite of Venus“. The songs are "You Love Me” and “I Feel Closer” performed live in Oaksterdam on August 26, 2011. Open the Gaudì folds and release the thing.

performing Doomsday Passes: Earth Intact part 2

Saturday's Rapture Fail was one of best shows in a while, my guitar antics where like a chemical fountain flooding the parlour of grace, in your ear, on the sides of your face... The idea of a Metaversal (or zero point, background) substance which flows into all of form, is not only championed by Einstein, but also by every religion that ever stood the test of time. Even cloistered nuns must know what I'm talking about. The "songs" newly formed in atom smashers, were like albino dachshunds charging out from the catacombs into the brilliant embrace of the sky which stands for a moment on a guitar string, strung out on the background of something very continuous. ("String theory" need not be altogether esoteric.) which sets the morphic resonant key code sites on or off in the DNA ladder... which is not a single twist, but a helix on a helix on a helix (Sobbing and laughing from the fjord to the whorehouse),... like the industrialized anthems of some tuned in, tweaked out Tibetian horn blasting it’s call out the left nostril of our Lord. Even oystered buns must know what I'm spreadin on 'em.

Raptureal estate agents recorded live from tomorrow

Suck away the dross and clutter of this virulent cultural undermind rampant with dubious sampled notions and half-digested leftover memetic visions. Only then will the dragonflies venture to mate on your scalp. Only then will the provisional gods you’ve held behind plexiglas step forth with new recipes for meringue soufflé, and heaven knows what other wonders. You’re bound for the paddocks and the Judas Goat; bound for the killing floor. All Hell is about to break loose and it never occurs to you that Bad Jesus is wearing horns; performing auto erotica and cheering you on. “Mom, Jesus is exposing himself to me. He wants me to get in his Hummer and go for a ride”.

Doomsday Passes:Earth Intact (once again)

What we have, right here, right now, is more than a Deluxe Concert, put on by the coolest band in the World, it is a direct attack upon chance biological circumstance It is a howling, screaming, blood curdling denunciation of every past, present, and future bigotry, real or imagined tearing at our throats and hearts with its ruthless honesty and vitriolic integrity. IAO Core is and always will be a call to arms for all those wandering, idealistic, nomadic souls wounded by inherited dogmas, primitive moralities and mindless fundamentalist ignorance of any and all persuasions anywhere, at any time, across this entire wonderful, vandalized, and unjustly suffering planet.. We’re in for something special… and the prospect is keeping the majority of the audience inside the earths atmoshere , calmly, watching the stage with expectant patience; In the end, though, IAO Core wipe the floor with all opposition when it comes to metatextual references to earlier cultural movements and scenes. Their stage show manages to mash up the scary-masks-and-scary-voices of heavy metal’s more theatrical end with the layered and hyperreal multimedia barrage of fin de siecle cyberculture circa 1999, all soundtracked by an intense and largely seamless set of synthetic aural brutality, at turns subtle and savage, chilly, reserved, raging and self-destructive.

IAO Core: Live in Barcelona 2010

This performance demands an unusual, but pleasing perspective of its listnership. The Metaverse you are now entering…...a colour, Pirouette, Bronyaur (Page),…assembled in 2010 in Barcelona, Spain, is not part of the lowest common denominator, ultra commodified, faux culture within which we are usually immersed. Naturally, and I choose that word with care aforethought, this is not just a good suspension of collusion (by which I suggest our everyday submissive acceptance of so called consensus reality) but it is a psychic purge, and a revelation, beneficial, to our potential identification of, and with our own private and unique concealed Self.

Golden Brown: from Live on the Pharm...

Iao Core covering Golden Brown seems paradoxical in that the main body of its information was given to our present selves by our future Self in order to load the dice in favor of its own manifestation. One of the reasons this happened is that we are on our own for the present. The benign influences of the older races have been suspended for this coming-of-age Initiation ordeal that we’are experiencing. We are allowed to talk to ourself, however. Never a frown!

The Core # 93 is ready for some "you readin' it" action!

Order from here or pick one up wherever finer underground art rags are sold....
Did I mention it comes with a free copy of the new IAO Core CD, "Live on the Pharm"?
Don't spend the morning in the living room, searching for the previous evening as though it were a dissevered cobra, the sections of which were hidden here and there about the room. . . No matter how cleverly you seek, however, you can't seem to find the head or the tip of its other extremity, the tail; so you are by no means certain of the creature’s real dimension, of how much there was left to uncover. Even when you check behind what we all thought to be the object which might most obviously conceal a clue— a curiously slashed landscape painting which hung at a disconcerting angle on the fruit-splattered wall— you'll find nothing but a pair of immaculate formal gloves nailed to the plaster.

Give Head and Strange Powers -- Live in Seattle 2003

This is no arbitrary test for survival of our genepool. It is the perfect test. If we can learn to braid electrical space with the harmonics which love weaves, then we have passed the "ring pass knot" gate to the privilege of doing that same activity for the braid creation of star systems and galaxies with our similar but much unpacked and blossomed electrical bodies. Love is not just a good idea, it's the Law

powerfully cool than blasting ejaculations of dragonbreath fireballs at the mainstream media charade, or shooting fireworks out the business ends of elf flamethrowers at the fleeing asses of slum lords and neo-conservative goons. Well maybe not that cool, but cool none the less.
