Here, reissued for the very first time, are the seminal recordings of Brother Theodore. Theodore was a staple of late-night talk shows like the Late Night With David Letterman show, a denizen of dubious ‘70s exploitation films such as the ‘Jaws’ sex-parody GUMS and the disco-vampire flick Nocturna, onetime Chess Champion of New York City and alleged offspring of Albert Einstein. Whether raving at midnight at Carnegie Hall or delivering dark diatribes over musique-concrete tape mash-ups, Theodore was unlike anyone before or since. Prohibitively rare and criminally misunderstood, the masters thought lost or destroyed for decades, Brother Theodore’s premier recordings are now presented in a new and official deluxe edition. Lectures to abandon bipedalism, craven bloodthirsty hallucinations, bongo beatnik-ism and Marshall McLuhanian pre-Post-Modernism - Brother Theodore was a philosopher, metaphysician and comedian of the grotesque - an absurdist storyteller, delivering masterful expressionist-horror monologues and nihilistic gallows humour dialogues. In these days of darkness and doubt, of crisis and confusion, what the world needs is a truly great soul. BROTHER THEODORE IS THAT SOUL. •Limited Edition Deluxe CD with 12-page booklet and exclusive scholarly liner notes by Alvin Lucia! •Full dynamic range 2019 remasters direct from the first generation analogue master tapes! •Rare and unpublished photos! •Previously unreleased track!*
