peel session

~ ~

gonna pull theses gems from my vault its Boom Bip and Doseone on a John Peel session and then followed by cLOUDDEAD on a John Peel session. Bryan Hollon, aka Boom Bip, is a producer and musician who experiments with many different genres and has developed a sound of his own. His music is mostly instrumental, but over the course of his career he has collaborated with several vocalists. Boom Bip And Doseone have one album together Circle.John Peel heralding Boom Bip as a "modern day Captain Beefheart".
cLOUDDEAD is a musical group consisting of the hip-hop musicians Doseone (Adam Drucker), Why? (Yoni Wolf), and Odd Nosdam (David Madson). Generally Drucker and Wolf provide the group's vocals while Madson produces the music. Occasionally Madson's vocals can be heard, while Drucker and Wolf provide music, especially for the group's second album.
cLOUDDEAD's sound is notoriously hard to define, and although it is undoubtedly grounded in 'traditional' hip-hop, influences as varied as electronica, psychedelic music and indie rock can be heard.
The group's name comes from a nonsensical knock-knock joke Drucker's sister told him when she was 6 years old. The joke runs like this:

"Knock-knock" "Who's there?" "Cloud" "Cloud who?" "Cloud-dead"
