Ball of Wax 13: Piss, Fuck, Cunt - Tomorrow

posted by on August 20 at 17:21 PM

ballofwax.jpgBall of Wax Audio Quarterly is hosting its 13th edition release show at the Sunset Tavern tomorrow.

Thatís Thursday, 8/21. 8:00 PM. $6 (includes a copy of Volume 13).

The show will have performances by Southside, Smile Brigade, Virgin of the Birds, Jon Garcia and the Best Laid Plans, Bret Phillips, St. Rainbow, and Olie Eshleman.

Ring leader Levi Fuller spoke about this 13th edition:

Whatís this one like?
Levi: This one is the Parental Advisory edition. When George Carlin passed away recently, I wanted to do some sort of tribute. This is that tribute in very teeny, infinitesimal way. Carlin brought us The Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television. Those words are shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits. I wanted to have a Ball of Wax full of songs containing these and other inappropriate words.

How was the response?
Huge. I got a wonderful response, including some songs that people already had at the ready and some written and recorded just for me. Meyercord’s “Shit on My Heart” is a favorite, featuring all seven words plus a couple. The new volume of Ball of Wax contains fifteen FCC-inappropriate tracks, ranging from a tossed off “fuck” here and there to a full on dirty-ass rap or two. Not for sensitive ears, this one.
