Pierre Henry – Exorcisme (from Machine Danse 1973)
When a Music Concret monster failed to get past the bouncers at Studio 54 for looking like a square, feelings were hurt. “Do you know who the fuck I am?!!!” didn’t work on the crowd who most likely never heard Le Voyage or any of his recordings of brain waves. I have a suspicion that after being called uncool by the New York elite, Pierre Henry retreated back to France and created his wacked out disco record Machine Danse in spite. Sore asshole or not, the record and especially the track I’m highlighting sound almost like early Dance Mania records, take note of the strange whimpering similar to DJ Milton. Really can’t give any advice on what to do with this other than maybe having a massive whip-its party, preferably in a dark closet by yourself.
