Notes

"In November 1967 Terry Riley performed an All Night Concert in Philadelphia under the moniker Poppy Nogood. A form of happening where Terry improvised on soprano saxophone and tape-delay feed-back system, otherwise known as the "time-lag accumulator". The "All Night Flight" concert held in the Philadelphia art school began at 10pm and lasted until dawn. Attendees were encouraged to bring along sleeping bags and make a full evening of it. One of those that attended operated a disco in Philadelphia and commissioned Terry to compose a "theme" for the night-club. The result is the plundering and appropriation of an obscure R&B tune "You're Nogood" [sic] ['You're No Good' by Harvey Averne] in a mix of moog, tape-loops, and feed-back system. First Time Available." - from original obi info wrap.

Disc 2 was recorded live at 10 p.m. November 17, 1967 and originally released as an open reel tape as part of SMS No. 3: June 1968 published by The Letter Edged in Black Press.

Gary Todd sells not working bootlegs of You're Nogood from Cortical Foundation's site. Beware!

"You're Nogood" is an epic piece of music made from audio tape (and at least a vinyl Motown record, hardware: such as a mixer, basic effects and an analog synthesizer) in the pre-digital age. The piece hints to a future of plunderphonics, mashups, loop-culture, etcetera. However, Terry's approach is different to John Oswald, tape-beatles and Negativland's non-repetative approach. Terry is a minimalist at heart and for that reason this (lost gem of a) recording leans more towards proto-sampling/hip hop/techno. If you haven't heard it yet you should, because it will give you more perspective of the composer, known more for his notated music. The piece begins with about 2+ minutes of Moog noise and then up pops a chopped, looped, tape-feedback matrix, hand-mixed, multi-tracked and edited version of a Motown song for the duration of the piece.
