This week’s episode is Exquisite Corpse.
An Exquisite Corpse was a game the Surrealists used to play where they would construct stories out of disparate sentences and pictures. During the game a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed. Which is the exact method behind the madness of Friday Funkbox!
And because corpse also refers to the human body, it’s a very apt title for this exquisite and surreal collection of songs. Special thanks to “Antonio Banderas” for his suggestion, and to Richie and Skreetch for introducing me to the band Anal Cunt many years ago.
